Ponderings . . . Again (10/22/2015)

Lots of talk about the U.S. being "a Christian nation." Hmmmm. . .


So that means, I think, the nation (collective) would purpose to practice/follow the teachings of Jesus – as in:


– Loving your neighbor as yourself
– Giving your second coat to someone who has none
– Forgiving 70 times 70
– Caring for Widows and Orphans


Of course we all realize individuals can practice this but to me, the idea of a "Christian nation" suggests we (citizens) collectively implement/practice the above. So how can we do that?


Hmmm . . . let’s see. How ‘bout setting up government organizations (collectively supported by our tax dollars) to assist people in need.


Oh, wait a minute. We DO that. Yeay for us.


Okay. Moving on. Jesus also said – "Love your enemies; do good to them who despitefully use you."


Now THAT’S a hard one. But wait, I have an idea for that, too.


Conscript the U.S. Military and utilize their funds, their resources, their time and effort –


and send them off to the Middle East (for starters, anyway) – with medicines and doctors and food and clothing and toys for kids –


and just BOMBARD them with it all –


LOVINGLY ADMINISTERED WITH BEAR HUGS.


And tell them, "Jesus sent me."
