Here I Go Getting All Political Again

My fellow Christians, this is about as political as I plan on getting.

I’m a Christian. Christians have their own political system.

The Nicene Creed is the Christian’s Constitution

The Sermon on the Mount is the Christian’s bill of rights.

We’ve rarely, if ever, had a candidate in this nation that represented our creed or our sermon.

Love anyway. Don’t panic.

Our holy book tells us that Non-believers will know we are Christians by our love.

I fear that we are coming to be known by our fear, our name calling, our judgmental attitudes, our intolerance, our racism, our homophobia, and our panic.

Remember who you are.

You’re better than this. You’re called to be better than this. Be better than this.

If you don’t know the Nicene Creed or the Sermon on the Mount then you might want to look them up, learn them, and build your life around them. They kind of sum up Christianity. Actually, that’s exactly what they do.

Rethink everything (That’s what repent means)

Be God’s

That’s all I’ve got.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James
