I've Changed My Political Label





I've changed my political label on facebook to 1 Corinthians 8:2.

Studying the book of Matthew really got me thinking about the fate of hypocrites.

After some of the things I have witnessed coming from the conservative side of the political isle I can no longer associate myself with that label.

Just like I got rid of the liberal label of my youth, I am getting rid of the conservative label.

I only want to be known as a Christ follower, an Evangelical Christian, and when I watch the news I will be looking only for the truth.

Both sides of the political isle have really lost their ever-loving minds!

The icing on the cake for me are all the hateful negative comments coming from conservative circles about Nelson Mandela.

It's the same feeling I get when liberals accuse conservatives of being racist.

I have seen some really dumb ideas come out of liberal think tanks and lately I’ve been witnessing a lot of dumb ideas coming out of conservative think tanks.

It’s a vicious cycle of back and forth gone wrong and I think I’m done with political labels all together.

I love God and I only want to be known by Him.

“The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.” 1 Corinthians 8:2

  1. Love it! I have a hard time swallowing political labels. Political labels USED to mean something but now, I think 98% of them are greedy bastards who sell their votes to the highest paying lobbyist. I can't begin to imagine voting for a label - I have to vote for character, morals, values, fiscal ability and so on. When you dig into their records, it becomes so obvious who they are there for - the people or the profit. Same with doctors - I can't stand when a doc goes against the oath he took to succumb to time limits, bill-stuffing etc. Heck, I learn more on the net from other patients than I learn from most docs.

    Great post Angela - probably feels like your clothes fit just right now, doesn't it?
