Since I've been writing about politics and also previous to that writing about culture.... I know that those topics can be so controversial.. so I wanted to add in something here.
I always seem to be the one that can understand all angles, feel compassion for all sides, see different point of views… I love talking to people and seeing their perspectives. I am very open to listening to anybody. I still very strongly about my values... but I have just learned I can be passionate yet not judgemental. Have strong convictions but understanding of others.
Regarding our thoughts on politics... I know that we all just have to do what’s right by us based on our experiences and knowledge up to date. I really believe so many (if not all) of us want good … we just have such different ‘information’ because of the paths we’ve walked, what we’ve seen, read, heard.
I truly believe that as The Body specifically, we are all so interwoven — all connected through Him that no matter at all what our differences are - no matter how far we are away from each other…… if we all ultimately move TOWARD God… because He is the ONE point on top of our web/our body/our triangle/whatever you want to call it… that we all automatically move closer to each other… oh wow - that’s cool. I like that. If we would just focus on Him and move toward Him - we could move closer to each other and be stronger.
These thoughts are just a play off something I heard at a wedding.
more on that here:
BUT saying all that.. I want to say that ultimately these differences WILL melt away yes... and at the end God will tell us 'what's up'... BUT I absoluty do NOT believe in relative morality. Moral relativism is not biblical to me at all.
So yes I can see all perspectives --- I can love on anybody --- I don't want to focus on our differences in The Body ---- and I can understand why people believe the way they do when I hear "their story".....
BUT whether people have knowledge of it or not... whether our society promotes it or not.... whether we follow it or not... I believe morality is not a flexible thing. I believe morals don't change because culture does.
Anyway - Just rambling.
