I saw bits and pieces of the recent Women’s March in Washington, DC, and I kept telling myself, “Ignore the Ignorance!” Then this morning one my writing pads of notes was opened to some notes I had made awhile back. Probably way before the march. The funny part is that I did not open it to this page, it was already there. Almost as if saying, “Well I am waiting on you to write me in your blog!”
Here I go again…
Since the day when we burned our bras and sang, “I am woman hear me roar;” he became she and she became he and we were equal! Right?
But haven’t we always been in this together? Adam and Eve, husband and wife, man and woman, however you feel like classifying yourself. Equal in life, equal in sin, and equal in death!
God considers us all His children, the good, the bad, and the ugly in us. He loves us the same. And maybe that is why some of these women felt the need to march, because deep down inside they do not feel equal. Equally loved, and recognized for who they are inside.
Of course I have never felt the need to wear a vagina hat to prove my equality or speak in such vulgar terms to be taken seriously. If you want to be taken serious in your protests, I would suggest knowing the facts first. Then dress for success. Take a look at the photos of Martin Luther King Jr’s protests. You will see suits and ties and elegant day dresses.
When you are dressed for grunge of the year or slut of the year, it is hard to see past your need for attention. Like a spoiled child rolling on the ground screaming at the top of their lungs. Most people will not give in to such a display of characters, much less take what they are saying seriously.
And this is the exact reflection of a deliberate problem which occurred throughout these past eight years…
ACTIONS WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY!
While they have been telling you that you are not responsible, and others need to clean up your messes or pay your way; let me tell you what God says…
Galatians 6:4-5 “But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.”
Romans 14:10, 12 “For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.”
Wow, each one of us has to bear our own load! And then we have to give an account of ourselves and our lives before God. OK, I am so, so, so, glad Jesus will be there to stand with me. And I have not worn a vagina on my head or tried to lead others in riotous, destructive behavior.
What about you?
One more point, I would like to make. As a child of the sixties and growing up in the deep south; I do not remember a time when I have felt that I was not equal. If I did, it was somewhere in my own mind and my own lack of courage and/or knowledge. And if equality gives me the right to kill a baby, I don’t want that kind of equality.
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
