Faith is MIA in the Christian nation. Faith has not been seen by Christian folks since November of 2008. Well, I should say some Christian folks haven't seen faith. What happened in 2008? Americans elected a Black man to the office of President of the United States. Aww hell naw! Was the scream from many households that night. Some said with joy and some with fear. I write to address the latter.
Since 2008 the membership in hate groups has grown rapidly. Gun sales have increased exponentially. People are packing heat as in the days of the Wild Wild West. Recently we have seen a call to and an attempt to end our government. The funny thing the person leading the Americans.to dismantle the government wasn't born in America. The things we do to ourselves.
All of this call to arms and other such crap is fear based. Fear causes one to lose sense of direction and sight of one's faith. In the absence of faith, fear grows into a powerhouse of self-destruction. If we are a Christian nation or even a nation with 3 .3 million Christian then we should know faith. What I think we have is a religious nation that knows not how to keep the faith. We know not the Spirit of God is with us and attempt to manifest destiny via our own designs.
Answer in your heart this statement that has been with me since MySpace days: Religion is for those who fear hell. Spirituality is for those who have been there.
Let go of the fear people. Live in love. Share in love. In love you will find faith waiting.
