Just because you, yourself don’t like it or support it.. doesn’t mean you have to force your agenda upon others. As a believer the common issue is that some believers push there belief on others.. but genuine believers know that this is the wrong approach. Accepting or rejecting is up to you. Now you might be wondering why I used this as an example.. because people of other religious beliefs or people pushing there views of politics are very harshly shoving there agenda down people’s throats so it isn’t just Christians who do this, many do it. It’s not tied down to one belief.
It’s okay to disagree and have an opinion on things.. that’s the great thing about freedom of speech. But when you start labeling people bad names.. calling them idiots.. or worse. Freedom of speech doesn’t sound very free. What America right now has utterly failed to realize.. is we have come a long, long, way from what it used to be.. but some of us are still living in the past & find it offensive.. so take it out of school books (or refuse to teach it), before I get labeled any sort of names.. hear me out here, we live in a day & age where we try to over protect ourselves. We wanna walk in a safe bubble, no harm, no bad language, the list goes on. We want love, peace, and unity. America shows unity in times of hurt & heartbreak. But America is only unified when it chooses to be these days. We are split in not 2, not 3, not even 4.. but multiple groups & each have negative things to say about the other.. how is that unity? We’ve gotten so used to being over protected and coddled that now when we don’t get what we think we deserve we make a scene.. cause A unnecessary ruckus. Let’s be real here.. most the time, we are sheep who follow trends because it is popular. Take the music industry for instance right now.. lot of artists are not trying to be different anymore.. they’re all claiming the same thing just calling it different names because it is what is popular & they wanna remain top 10. Some of us do this very same thing with our social media accounts.. we throw gasoline on a fire because it gives us attention & popularity. We idolize fame, money, and celebrities. In scripture’s terms, “we worship creation over The Creator”. We’ve failed to grasp that fact that it is okay to be wrong.. because we in our eyes we are right. I’ve deterred off my main point here.. let me bring it back.
Lastly, I think it’s important we all have different opinions but your opinion doesn’t triumph anyone else’s it is strictly your opinion for a reason. Sadly, we currently live in a time where having your opinion is frowned upon & mocked by news stations.. blog sites.. and even on social media. People want unity.. but let me paint you a reality check.. it will NEVER happen. Why? Because everyone is different.. we have different views and that’s what makes us, us. If we were to be robots with all the same mindsets.. God would have created us like it. You know how boring it would be to simply follow anything and everything everyone else did every single day for the rest of your life? We like sheep, are trying to do this daily.. we hold our standards to looking good compared to models, actresses, or other people of popularity and we spend so much time trying to be alike someone but lose what makes us unique. Weird? Embrace it, it is after all what makes you, you. God created us all different for a reason and we keep spending day after day… trying to push that everyone needs to be the same.. follow this path.. have these thoughts.. and if you do not then well your stupid and uneducated. That’s not how it works people! I think i’ll end on this point..
Freedom of speech.. is becoming a thing of the past because when we raise our voices we are heavily scrutinized today not just by a few people but even the media chimes in if it can create enough of a ruckus. Opinions are exactly just that.. opinions. But we say hurtful things, spread hate, and cause unnecessary divisions all in an attempt to feed off the attention we get. If we steer clear of it, don’t engage in it, you have no reason to be upset or bitter or have hatred. If we let a lot of these petty things go and just enjoyed the life we have been gifted by God. Finally, we live in a fallen world that needs Jesus. Be a good example of Christlikeness & remain humble.
