Ok, so I realized that certain thoughts don't fit with the new blog theme, so occasionally, I'll stick them over here.
Today is election day here in the USA. I went and voted about 2 hours ago, and, to be honest, I was disappointed to find that a vast majority of races are completely uncontested. Now, I want our politics to be harmonious, but to have a complete computer screen of uncontested races shows me that we, as Americans, are getting apathetic towards the whole process.
It leads me to wonder about our spiritual lives. How many of us allow the challenges of our lives to go uncontested? How many times do we simply give in and not fight against the things we need to fight against?
How many times do we fail to share the Gospel, deciding to give up, not contesting our opponents for the souls of humanity?
May we shake our apathy and contest it! Don't give up without a fight! That's really the only way we can possibly lose!
And on a side note, check out dougforpresident.blogspot.com in the coming weeks as I delve full-bore into politics there, including my call for someone to contest every race in America in the next election. It's not democracy if there isn't anyone else to vote for. Even Stalin let some people vote---he was the only one on the ticket!
The occasional thoughts of an ordinary man serving an extraordinary God. Come with me as we learn, teach, and laugh along the way.
