In a thought provoking post on his Mindfump Blog, Paul Green wrote, “We are bound by modern societal rules to forego all moral objections and wish others good luck in all their endeavors. ” These words gave me much to ponder.
Yes, definitely, this is the attitude of many sincere people . . . unless, of course, they are spitting out hateful words toward elected political officials with whom they disagree.
Green made it clear that many believe it correct to forego moral objections and wish everyone good luck.
As a follower of Jesus, I am very familiar with His teachings about loving one another, including our enemies. This is where I disagree with “societal rules.” In addition, I am convinced it is good and right to stand up for what we believe, but in a gentle and kind way. Yelling and throwing sticks and stones doesn’t solve a thing. If only we could all be able to reason with each other. . .
