Entitled children with delusions of grandeur who never receive correction, or who are taught to dismiss it, grow up to be disrespectful, narcissistic, lawless adults, and we all suffer the fallout.
Frail and pathetic elected officials not only make my country a laughingstock on the world stage, but could literally be a threat to things like national security.
There are people trying to paint Elon Musk as a racist, he isn’t, not at all. In fact, he left South Africa so that he would not have to spend years in Military service to the apartheid government. He had no desire to oppress black people, or anyone, and in fact has done quite a lot for humanity at large.
Nonetheless, the hit pieces and smear campaigns will probably keep coming from those who hate him with an insane and fierce passion.
Making statements of fact is not bullying, despite what many these days think. Just because someone might find truth offensive doesn’t mean anyone should shy away from speaking it.
I rather someone be brutally honest than for them to tell me a comforting lie.
The disciples put EVERYTHING on the line to spread the Gospel, not just for what they believed, but what they KNEW & WITNESSED.
Jesus is well known for Loving people, but never once did He ever endorse sin.
All Christians know (by His example) that we can and should Love people, without accepting/approving the evil deeds that people are at times inclined to.
Condemning an ACTION is not the same as hating the person engaged in said action. If for example, my son stole a dollar from me, I would still Love him, but I would rightly condemn his thievery.
The idea that rebuking wrongdoing is bigotry toward the person engaged in the wrongdoing is utter nonsense.
If we take no stand against evil, we are complicit in it.
“To sin by silence when we should protest, makes cowards out of men”-Ella Wheeler-Wilcox.
I must advocate for true journalists everywhere.
Whatever culture you’re from, whatever color you are,either gender.
All that matters to me is that you care about speaking/writing truth in the midst of a world that seems to increasingly despise it.
We need more like you!
We ought to be careful and prayerful about the people we allow into our lives. We ought to actively avoid those who are detrimental to us, those who are poisonous to our well being. I’ve heard it said, “bad company corrupts good character” and that’s an important thing to realize & keep in mind.
