Opposition

If you ever feel like opening yourself up for attack and opposition all you have to do is leave a comment on a national story. It's very simple and will do wonders for your ability to be controlled and contianed. I have never done this until a couple days ago and have received over a dozen hate mail responses. At first I was a little taken back, but now that I think about it, I shouldn't be surprised. God is not the focus of society. We read these stories that the media glorifies and uses for publicity and ratings and get tempted in, we feed ourselves exactly what the world wants us to "eat": SIN. Story after story arise about horrible, brutal and completely demonic situations and most people without the Truth of the Lord sit there with their mouth ajar wondering "How can God do this?" or "Why do these things happen?" when we have porno shops, abortion clinics and little girls whose parents dress them up like sluts for pageants, we exploit, tempt, and tantalize everyone with stuff, self glorification, and success and we wonder...we have the audacity to wonder? I am sick of people blamming the One True and constant thing in the world. I am so sick of people blamming my Lord for what is not His fault. It is our fault. (It is different to question in trauma and pain). When will we start looking at ourselves? When will society say "enough" to the things that are not ok? Can I hope for this any longer? I don't know anymore. I have a lot of unplugging to do. I can't remove myself from the world, but I must "feed" myself Truth, I must put before me the things of the Lord, I must live radically for the Lord because time is running out before we will not be able to speak the Name of Jesus without being hurt.
