Are you people really my family?

We were in a restaurant last night that had a television playing political speeches.  Included was a comment from someone that if you voted for his guy, you'd make everyone in America one big family.

I'll stick with the family God started. (Ephesians 3:15)  This other alleged "family" seems to be intent on terrorizing some of my neighbors.  In fact there were some neighbors in the back of the restaurant chatting quietly to each other in Spanish and they didn't sound like they were very optimistic about the political "family" that these guys were wanting to force on them.  Frankly I'm not, either.

David Lipscomb believed that since the tower of Babel man's government had been constantly trying to usurp and replace God's government.  Maybe that explains why people try to talk about the government using words that only apply to the kingdom of God, like "family."


People killing people

I noticed there were arguments about the word genocide in the news this morning.  That prompted me to think about the words we use for things and how they can sometimes obscure what we believe about right and wrong.

It's pretty much always wrong to kill another human being, except possibly in self-defense.  When a government starts a war, it's pretty much never actually truly self-defense.

That about sums it up for me.


Muhammad Ali

Lots of people seem to want to accuse Muslims in general of being violent, but the most well-known Muslim in America got in trouble for publicly refusing to fight in a war.  Thank you, Muhammad Ali, for being a great teacher to us all.  Your passing is a true loss to the world.  God bless your friends and loved ones who are now mourning that loss.
