You are more than a citizen of whatever country you live in. You're an ambassador, which means, your home is an embassy of heaven. What's that mean?
Since about 2008, politics in America have gotten more and more divisive. So much so, I have often mused to myself the idea of bringing back dueling. Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers, was killed in a duel.
Political movements seem to be ramping up from both the far-right and far-left. Y'all
need to get your crackpots, they're making you look bad.
Eric Hoffer wrote a book on Mass Movements in 1951. It's very insightful. Look at the quotes and try to see if it helps you understand what's going on today.
I must be addicted to the hate-filled dumpster fire that is social media during the political season. Despite filtering most of the political posts out, someone will pick up a flag to wave and run it into the ground. I don't have the bandwith for it all so I went out and prayed about it.
I don't like looking like I'm ignorant, even though I am. Whenever the protests popped off, the white people in my church started apologizing and asking questions. We're a diverse church, proud of our unity despite the diversity. My response was to observe, learn, watch. The thing is, like most people, I don't like being talked down too. That's why I chose my information sources carefully. Black people in the church who were posting that I trusted, like Dr. Knott, Melva, Renee, Ryk, and Chris. Angry white people were snoozed, from both sides of the argument. A friend, Kee, found a website, IVP Books, where to promote black authors, they gave away one book. I chose the one I'm going to review today.
