My Pastor

A dutiful servant

He preached a sermon titled "Some Things Are Not Negotiable," this morning. Us Christians ought to know what he's talking about, we ought to all have the same mind, considering we are to have the mind of Christ.

I don't believe for a minute that Christ is double minded.

My pastor reminded us that our morals should play a part in how we vote, "Some of you, you'd vote for the devil if he was a member of your party," he said.

He also said he was tired of hearing candidates, on both sides, talk about change. He doesn't believe either one of them will change much, but he is concerned about the direction of our country.

He even got a little angry as he repeated, "GOD can change things!"

Christians need to seek the will of God for every single position that is going to be filled in this election because God CAN change things and He has a clear will for our country and He has a clear choice between candidates. We should all be praying for guidance from God as we cast our votes. Prayer, as I was reminded in Sunday School this morning isn't just about talking to God, it's also about listening to God.

Let's listen, America because if we talk and we listen, God can make changes.

There really are some things that are not negotiable.

Your pastor is a very smart man, I hope those in the congregation can do some soul searching to see if they might be the ones he was referring to.

The man is wise beyond his years.

I don't know if he's wise beyond his years or not, Tom, he certainly is wise but he ain't no "young pup." Lol.
