Christians, Our Love of Politics Is Killing Christianity

Christians, we’ve got to stop loving politics. It’s bringing us more division, warping the message of Christianity we are trying to embody and is distracting us from going to heaven and taking others with us. We cannot continue our love affair with both Jesus and politics. We must choose one. For the sake of the souls of those around us, I hope we choose Jesus.

Love Isn’t the Only Thing That Matters, But It Matters Most

Isn’t it interesting how we get things backwards so often? We tend to care more about a brother’s view on worship than we do his view on war. We care more about what he believes about God than about how he treats the poor, the immigrant, and the widow. We all prioritize things. The question is, do we have the same priorities as God?

How to lead when you’re not in charge

Even when we have authority and official positions of leadership, inspiring leaders do not need to leverage their authority. “Not so with you” leaders learn that there are ways to cultivate influence and build trust. Jesus tells us this is the way to lead—by example and for the right reasons.

Multilevel-marketing companies like LuLaRoe are forcing people into debt and psychological crisis

But according to a report that studied the business models of 350 MLMs, published on the Federal Trade Commission’s website, 99% of people who join multilevel-marketing companies lose money. Depending on how you look at it, it’s either a brilliant business model or a predatory practice—or a little bit of both.

MMA Star Derrick Lewis Saves Man With Confederate Flag In Hurricane Harvey

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Lewis revealed that one of the families that he rescued included a father who deeply wanted to save his confederate flag. “I picked up one guy and his family, his wife ― he just kept apologizing to me, because all he really had was his clothes, and he wanted to take his confederate flag,” Lewis said. “He wanted to take that with him, and he just apologized and said, ‘Man, I’ll sit in the back of your truck, man. I don’t want to have my flag inside of your truck like this.’ I said, ‘Man, I’m not worried about that.'”

Mexican bakers make pan dulce for hundreds of Harvey victims after becoming trapped by floods

“By the time the owner managed to get to them, they had made so much bread that we took the loaves to loads of emergency centres across the city for people affected by the floods.

    Daniel, John the Batist, Christ….. confronted authirities when they were wrong.

    It is a testing time for christians. Christians have to chose the Word not what Maduro, or Trump, or any earthly king decides.

    This is not about being popular. Is about your salvation. Not loving your neighbor and being cowards to stand up, sends a written letter to Christ. If Obama was a disaster, that was yesterday. What do we have today? A country of pharises preaching love and adoring Trump and Abott for deporting and separating families. I have gone though that and it hurts. If someone thinks he (she) is on Gods’ side because you adore every spit of racism, I will write and sign it, that is not of christians; but, is of an embitted heart filled with racism. Call me embittered if you want, but ” if you LOVE God, you HATE evil,” read it.

    Rom 13. Dont waste your time. The higher law is more important and take this, IS NON NEGOTIABLE.
