I’m sitting here on the couch in the middle of a mountain of political mail. For the last couple weeks I’ve been saving the flyers as they came in the mail intending to sit down and sift through them so I can educate myself on the issues and be an informed voter.
My intention was to remain as neutral and unbiased as possible until I could research the facts about each issue and form my own opinion. I’m finding, though, that it’s almost impossible to form an opinion on anything without some sort of input from someone else – and by it’s very nature that input will always be biased. As I sort through the mail, I see very passionate and convincing flyers on both sides of issues and I’m at a complete loss for who is telling me the truth.
I’ve discovered that I’m way too much of a feeler to enjoy politics. People feel so strongly about politics and get so emotionally involved they become irrational. It’s going on right now on Compassion’s blog. I hate how divisive political issues are. I feel like we are giving Satan a wide open door to pit Christians against each other and destroy the unity of the Body of Christ.
I’m putting all this mail in the trash. There is only one source of Truth and I’m counting on it to have some solid answers for me.
Hurry up, November 4th.
I’m going to go find someone to give me a hug.
