“Thou Shall Not Be A Jerk: A Christian Guide to Engaging In Politics

Matthew 6:33 “Seek First The Kingdom of God

Yesterday, I decided to take the plunge and dive into what should be a rewarding experience for you, the readers, and me. As a kid, I love reading books and you could tell by looking at my nose. It was literally covered in ink. Though I did have some dry spells, the love for reading has never left. They say that one’s passion grows best when shared.

It is probably why I maintained a love for God’s Word because I talked with my Father in Heaven about what I read. Today, I can honestly say there was a joy in talking about what I read. Sadly, I never thought to ask God about the other books that I read. I had a similar experience when I joined a book discussion on Fahrenheit 451 in college.

If you are reading a blog post on this site, it is a safe bet that you’re interested in Christianity. As you may have guessed, my goal for this blog post is to discuss issues found in Eugene Cho’s book “Thou Shall Not To Be A Jerk: A Christian’s Guide To Engaging Politics”.

This is not meant to be a book review; rather it is a discussion on what Eugene Cho is covering in this book. As it happens, I did major in Political Science and been involved in social activism.

During the 90s, I would have loved the pearls that I’m discovering inside and I’m planning to share some of them. Don’t worry, I am not planning to go hardcore. Not everyone is called to get into politics, yet we do need to know how to not come across as a jerk.

Has this ever happened to you? Did you ever think that the Holy Spirit would prompt you to use a story that’s nearly 10 years old? Just because something is old, it does not diminish its value.

I’d like to share what happened and a fresh reminder to me, as a writer. Our stories are of value; no matter when it happened!

Make The Day of Rest, A Lifestyle!

How are you feeling these days? Are you feeling stressed out and exhausted? When it comes to the topic of politics in the wonderful lands of Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, the feelings of exhaustion, depression, and stress are intensified.

Have you ever considered taking a real day off? How about turning off social media, for a day?

Do you know there is more to the Sabbath than Sunday morning church service? Yes, I know that the Sabbath actually starts at sundown on Friday and ends by sundown on Saturday.

Let’s Talk About Social Justice. What Does It Mean?

If possible, I would like to share some insights into this “hot” topic.  If you ever read Proverbs 21:3, Micah Isaiah 10:2, Isaiah 61:8, Ezekiel 18:27 and Micah 6:8; Scriptures make clear that God cares about justice and definitely cares about the poor. Why the poor? They’re often the ones vulnerable to those who would exploit them.
