"To Sonchild re: politics & such"
I was never 'into' politics or current
events. It wasn't until I felt the evil coming off BHO when I saw him
on a news report my husband was watching on a tv in a motel room while
we were on vacation that my spirit was awakened and I knew I needed to
Back then, it was easy to follow the news to find out what was
happening in the world, political and otherwise. I realized then, that
I was seeing 'history' played out, just as I had on 9/11.
When it became clear that I was seeing things go down just as we've
been told it would, I knew I needed to stay informed. It became obvious
that I was watching a 'play' that I had the script to...I knew how it
was going to go, I just needed to keep up with it on a daily basis.
Then, suddenly things started changing. It became very obvious that I
could not trust the sources I'd been following. Everyday I see/sense
another 'sell out' in these tv personalities. I know the majority of
them do not do the research, they just 'act out' the script they are
given. My daughter used to work at a CBS affiliate and she would do the
leg work, write up the story, and then an 'anchor/actor' would read her
work! Don't know why I never realized that...but then, as stated, I
never did keep up with the news.
My point is, these people, who claim to be conservative, some even
claiming to be Christians, are just reading what they are told to read.
They are on 'commentary' type shows, where they are free to engage in
debate on what they believe, but it's very clear that they are either
misinformed, ill-informed, or purposely towing the line for whomever is
in charge (just as Obama does).
We are IN the world, even if we are not OF it. I believe we MUST
educate ourselves, know what is happening around us...know our enemy.
If not, it will be too easy to fall into a trap, or not be aware enough
to keep others out of one.
Just my opinion.
