Are You Offended?

September 14, 2019

Thank you to Beth Walker, Team Leader with SOS Events in Alabama, for this post…

“I’m going to vent here…Most of my friends on Facebook know my religion. They may not know that my goal in life is to take upon me HIS name and always remember Him and keep His commandments. It makes me happy and brings me peace and joy. That is why this bothers me…..

On the “Today Show”, one of the wives of one of the Navy Seals killed along with the US ambassador in Libya. He asked what she would say to her children about their dad and how she would want them to remember him. Her answer, and I quote, “His love for Christ”, and then continued on with a few other things. Throughout the day and on MSN homepage, replaying the story, they have edited the “Love of Christ” part out. Why? Because using the word Christ might offend someone! Well, I am a Christian and I am offended! I’m offended that they would edit it out. Offended that we as Christians are asked to tread lightly so as not to offend someone of another religion. This man loved his country and loved his God and gave his life for both, just as Christ gave His life for him.

This Founding Principle is actually embedded in our Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

If we ever forget that we’re one nation under GOD, then we will be a nation gone under.” Ronald Reagan

2 Thessalonians 1:12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
