Society Needs Jesus Back In Our Lives

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Jesus taught a message of love, and for that he is hated. What does that say about society? It says there are some people whos hearts are full of hate. The very idea of spreading the message of “love your neighbor” causes them to go into a rage. They start babbling about things to discredit the message of love. Why would someone fight against love? Why would someone want the world to be filled with hate?

The simple answer is their hearts are full of hate.

The mouth is a reflection of what fills the heart. A lot of people will disagree with that. However, when a person argues against Jesus, who only taught peace and love, their heart is not filled with love.

Society has been taught there is no GOD. What examples can we look at when societies reject GOD? China comes to mind, and so does Russia.

Can Not Legislate a Conscience

Kevin Felts political commentator

If there is one thing that should stop mass shootings, but fails, it has to be the conscience. The conscience is supposed to point people in the right direction. It is supposed to help us help us make the right decision. What happened to the conscience of mass shooters?

What makes mass shooters different from serial killers? Instead of killing a dozen people over the course of a decade like a serial killer, a mass shooter kills a dozen people in a few minutes.

After the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, the gun grabbers were out in full force. The bodies were still warm when they were offered up as a sacrificial lamb to justify gun control. The bodies were held high, as if to impress the GOD of gun control.

Just as drugs and illegal immigrants slip across the border, so would illegal weapons. If border security can not stop millions of illegal immigrants, what is to assure us illegal guns can be stopped?

Rights Stripped Away

We Need Shows Like Hee Haw

Would you like to know what is wrong with society? We need more Hee Haw and less reality TV shows. We need something families can sit in front up and have a good laugh.

As I write this post I am 49 years old, and will turn 50 in a few months. When I was a kid in the 1970s, mom, dad, my brother and I would watch Hee Haw. More or less mom and dad would watch the show and my brother and I would sit in the living room with them.

It was an hour filled with good family time, talking, laughing and having a good time. After Hee Haw was over, it would be time for a bath and bed.

Society needs something to bring families back together, and not drug, sex and violence laden reality TV shows.

Why Is There So Much Hate For Religion

On February 27, 2017 someone on a facebook page posted a picture of a bible being urinated on. The guy said he was tired of seeing bibles in hotel rooms.

I posted a comment that the guy should be banned from the group. A young lady replied to my comment claiming the the Bible was a myth and Jesus never existed. She went on to give various examples of why the Bible was not to be believed.

Whether someone does or does not believe in th Bible, GOD or Jesus, is not the issue.

The question I have, why is there so much anger directed towards a person who only taught love and good works? Jesus taught us to love one another, and people hate him of it.

Why?

Confronting Islam

Acts17Apologetics has posted an interesting video on confronting Islam. There are two main mindsets on how Christians should deal with Islam.

1 – Tolerance and political correctness. Yes, Christians will attempt to accommodate Islam.

2 – Meet Islam head-on. No, we are not going to accommodate Islam. No, Sharia law is not welcome here.

Should America Return to Christian Values

A lady on my facebook feed posted an image that said, “like if you think America should return to its Christian values.”

Slavery – It was Christians, good GOD fearing people that helped make slavery part of American history. To be fair, and to spread the blame, a good number of slave ships were owned by Jews. If we want to go back to our Christian values, are we going to enslave blacks?

Drinking – It was GOD fearing Christians that gave us Prohibition. Are we going to outlaw drinking again?

Marijuana – it was good GOD fearing Christians that helped outlaw the use of marijuana.

Gay Lifestyle – it was GOD fearing Christians that has helped fuel hatred towards gays. Shouldn’t we let someones lifestyle be their choice, instead of societies choice.

Why would we want to live a lifestyle that promotes hatred towards certain people? What kind of GOD tells his followers to kill people who commit adultery?

Maybe we need to scrap the old testament and following the teachings of Christ. Forget the apostles, forget the teachings of everyone that came after Christ. If we took the teachings of Christ, and Christ alone, then, and only then would there be a religion worth following.

What makes Christ so different? Because he taught people to love one another, period.
