I Am A Follower, Right?

The only thing you can do in the back seat is follow, making the choice easy.

Bill Clinton (in yesterday’s headline) isn’t trying to solve all the world’s problems, just most of them. Jesus is trying to solve all the world’s problems. But He’s trying to solve them through ordinary people, not Presidents. At Church today, the Deacon talked about our role as follower.

He suggested that our laws shouldn’t drive our values, but that our values ought to drive our laws. Roe vs Wade on January 22, 1973 created a law that leaves me extraordinarily confused – a child dies for every abortion. Dies.

PS. It is January 22, 2012 as I write this. (it’s a “blog 90-days ahead experiment”), so it’s in the moment now, but on April 22 when we read this, we’ll race right on by it….and that was the Deacon’s point. A follower can not.

Our country was established on strong moral values which dictated our laws. Unfortunately, in many but not all instances, both have changed since the time of our founding fathers.

Patty, we reap what we sow. The long way is the shortcut. There are no shortcuts. Often, the laws are changed to accommodate an exception or an extraordinary situation.

If it wasn’t for litigation and money, perhaps we wouldn’t be influenced.
