“Am I therefore become your enemy,

because I tell you the truth?”

Galatians 4:16

 

Dear Christian Republican Voters:

 

I’m writing because I’m angry at you and want to be reconciled with you; for my good, our good, and the good of our country.  I originally drafted this letter when the government was shut-down and America was headed towards default.  I am angry because you voted in people who are willing to destroy this country to get what you want.  I want to talk to Republican Christians because the body of Christ should be more important than our political parties.

 

Let me introduce myself first.  I am a Christian.  I believe in the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, & Holy Ghost.  I believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ.  I believe the Bible is the word of God.  I’m a middle-aged, working, intelligent and educated African American woman living on the east coast who normally votes Democrat.  I support President Obama.

 

No, I don’t support the President’s actions as it regards cultural/societal issues that are in contrast to the Bible.  Yet, Psalm 41:1 says “blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble”.  President Obama’s regard for the weak is shown in enacting pay-equality for women, Obamacare, and wanting the rich to pay their fair-share in taxes.  It appears that not only do you disagree with his policies, but you hate him and his family as human beings.  Why else would a Congressman call the President a liar, during the President’s State of the Union address?  The disrespect & disdain with which you’ve treated him, through your representatives, infuriates me.  I still don’t know if President George Bush won his first election fair and square; but once the dust-up was over, Democrats accepted his authority.  Why are people still arguing that President Obama is a Kenyan with a fake birth certificate?

 

That’s why I’m writing to you.  I want you to know who I am, and why I support President Obama and liberal/moderate Democrats.  I want you to realize that I’m a human being, no better or worse than you are.  I also want you to use your influence as voters to restore respect for the Office of the Presidency (regardless of who the President is) and to infuse the Republican Party with a concern for the poor, the orphan, the widow and the stranger.  That’s Biblical.  You and I should be able to be reconciled with one another based on our being members of the household of God.

 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

Put on the full armor of God,

so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,

but against the rulers, against the authorities,

against the powers of this dark world and

against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:10-12

BOW is my first experience in blogging, and my writing has undergone an evolution since I started. I use If I Knew Then What I Know Now to think aloud about my Christian walk. When you read it, my hope is that WE (the BOW community & friends) then discuss how to apply God's word into our everyday lives in a practical manner. As Christian lay-theologians, we'll talk about our world, and how we can be in it but not of it. So whatever your thoughts are about what you read, PLEASE share.
