    A couple of my close childhood/college friends are very “woke.” I was afraid those friendships would be lost a few years ago, but we are learning to listen to each other. We’ve found that we are usually concerned about the same things, but have different solutions. I come from a perspective of sin and personal responsibility, while they come from the perspective of more government/charitable aid to solve problems. Often, we agree that an answer can lie somewhere in the middle-if people insist on using drugs, they might have to receive some kind of help for their own good and the good of society. Those types of conversations are actually happening in San Francisco (my old home town) among government leaders, where the drug/homeless issue has taken up entire blocks of the city.

    When I think of good, godly governance I always go back to the book of Daniel. Daniel had great faith, but he was also a very astute politician. He made a bargain with Ashkenz in chapter 1-if I’m not the picture of health after a few weeks on my special diet, I will return to the king’s mandated ones. He and his friends turned out to be the best and brightest of the bunch. In Daniel 2, he makes sure that the lives of all the king’s soothsayers are saved so that he has time to decipher the king’s dream. He repeatedly gets himself elected to the second-highest office in the land, even after he is thrown overnight into a den of lions for insisting on praying publicly (and surviving the night with God’s protection).

    It would be wonderful if the Christian government leaders in the U.S. were real Christian with actual governing skills. It could make such a difference.

    Is nastiness now a fruit of the Spirit, for Republicans and their allies?

    I’m sorry that you’re dealing with the winter weather in person. It only affected me in the least manner: equipment I sent to beaverton was delayed due to snow and ice.

    Last year in the Cali motherlode, State of Jefferson successionist country, the EMS system went down multiple times. Residents were told that if they had emergencies, they had to drive into town since 911 didn’t work by cell or landlines. It wasn’t the Illuminati, the CFR, Agenda 2030, the UN or the Tri-Lateral Commission (all of which exist except for the illuminati). It was thieves from the central valley repeatedly ripping up wires and fibers in the forest. They were finally caught after the authorities installed cameras in the forest.

    We’ll finally know what a tree falling in the forest sounds like and if the bears use a certain brand of bath tissue.

    bob1,

    I recently blocked Todd Starnes (not sure if he claims to be a Believer) on LinkedIn of all places…why? Because I posted about Beth Moore’s disapproval of Trump, and the comments from so-called Christians was so hostile towards Beth. The fruit of obsessing over Trump and politics is rearing it’s ugly head, but doesn’t seem to be anything new…just more blatant and brazen.

  6. Dan from Georgia says:

    ooopps,…I didn’t post about Beth Moore, but Todd did.

    TNV,

    Apparently part of the blackout here was due to tweakers stealing 200 feet of fiber line looking for copper to sell…

  8. Michael says:

    Dan,

    I saw some of that on Twitter…Beth Moore is what a real Christian leader looks like.

  9. Dan from Georgia says:

    Michael,

    Totally agree about Beth. She’s doing the work of our Lord and is paying a price. Lord keep her strong.

    Michael,
    Just an extra thought about the article-
    I got into a conversation with a fellow teacher last night who I know well, but may never discuss politics with again. I told her I was ambivalent about supporting Trump (I didn’t say totally against), and she proceeded to repeat numerous conspiracy theories that have never been proven (did you know that Trump caught all the sex traffickers and our of the country that he caught at the border? I don’t think she has been to our downtown pickup street recently). it was an okay conversation, but I think she is in great fear for my soul.

  11. Michael says:

    Linn,

    There’s been an even steeper turn toward messianic beliefs about Trump this go ’round….it’s both baffling and fearsome to me…
