So I hear Ludacris has a song called "Politics (Obama is Here)" that's supposed to be a rally cry for Barack's campaign. But with lyrics like "Hillary hated on you, so that b**** is irrelevant", "McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed, Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped.", and "Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers/ Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer." No wonder the Obama camp denounced the track so quickly. Great example of hurting more than helping. Rappers man...and by the way SMH @ Nas saying we don't need Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton (we don't), and replacing them with Young Jeezy and David Banner. Smarten up Nas...

Anyway, they've been doing a whole lotta denouncing lately huh?? Jesse, his OWN pastor (who was right with his comments BTW), its like Obama is trying way to hard to bend and appease everybody. And if he's a Christian like he says he is, then we all know that the Word of God doesn't change. Being a God pleaser>people pleaser. And I'm sure all of us at one point have felt so strongly about something, that we've made people mad.

Like I said on the podcast, I've been praying for direction of the nation, that God's Will be done and not what we think is best for the country. His thoughts are nowhere near ours, we tend to think short term, and God's got the next trillion years mapped out. So when I think of all this appeasing Obama's been doing lately, I can't help but think of this scripture

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves

Am I saying he's a false prophet?? Meh, I'm not gonna judge the man. But lately his actions got me giving dude the side eye of doom. Like I tell folks, its not necessarily Barack, his supporters got me weary. You mean to tell me, that this no-God fearing nation we live in is gonna support a man so adamant about convincing everybody he serves Christ?? I've experienced hate from people just cuz they KNOW or HEARD I served Christ. But wait, this Christian believes in gay rights and abortion... (Don't get me started...wait, nevermind). How can you follow God and opt for gay rights and pro choice? When God's Word clearly states "man shall not lay with man". And "thou shall not kill"??? Come on yall, its clear as day.

Think about how our country is now. High gas prices, a war and a recession are our biggest issues. Gas is annoying, yes. But thank God it aint like some of these other countries where its $9 & $10 a gallon. Ride a bike, take the bus. Walk. Carpool. We still have OPTIONS. But we're such a spoiled and comfortable country, anytime the slightest change happens, we get bent out of shape (so in that case, what type of "change" do we want for real?)

War, soon as we get out of Iraq, cuz our nation is so nosy (and home aint been cleaned up yet), we've got other countries ready to chop our heads off. So it'll be one war to the next.

And a recession, I aint even out of my current job and I've been getting offers for new jobs. I have friends and family making good money still. Shoot, your favorite rapper is still flaunting cash in his videos. And I'm sure you have a friend that cashed his check to go to the club & make it rain. Granted I also have a few friends that are having a hard time, but at least its not a depression. My point being its not as bad as it could be.

God requires us to be content, not comfortable. I'd much rather have Him give me the "change" I want than the president.

*side note- I'm not supporting either candidate right now, I'm still gathering information. I'm sure ill be writing a blog when I make a decisoon

"How can you follow God and opt for gay rights and pro choice?"

Honestly I've been thinking about the whole gay rights issue and pro choice, and some thoughts came to my head. Yes, we as Christians know these things are wrong, however God gives us the free will to choose to do right or wrong. I don't believe that Obama supports folks being gay, but that being gay doesn't infringe them of their natural rights as human beings. They are still human.

Now, I'm definately not tolerant of what they do or think in their sexual orientation/lifestyle, but they have the right to choose. Think about it: God told Adam to not eat the fruit from the tree of good and evil. He didn't baracade the tree and made it into legislation with police patroling. He told Adam what was right, but at the end of the day it's his decision to follow it. It's similar to pro-choice. Yes, abortion is wrong, but let those who wish to do it decide for themselves, not the government. God gave us His Holy Spirit for discernment, but it's up to us to follow His promptings, and for us to suffer the consequences of our actions, both good and not so good.

One of the best gifts God gave us is the ability to choose, the ability to make the decision to love the world or to love Him. That way our love to Him is sincere. He already knows who's going to do what.

I'm slightly apprehensive in having a society that imposes laws to make people do certain things. It can be positive (banning abortion) or it can be evil (Jim Crow). Nevertheless, the true Judge is God, His Word never fails, and He's the way I wish to live. Glad that no one person or government ruling force me to my decision, and I'm thankful to Him for choosing me.

*shrugs* it's your perspective. great blog though... *smiles* Genre
