See to it that no one falls short of the GRACE of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. ~Hebrews 12:15
I learned recently that if you make the okay sign, you are a racist. It no longer means okay, it’s a symbol of white pride.
What the what?!?
I have been making the okay sign my ENTIRE life to mean “okay.” And, now it means something bad?
The idiocy of our society has gotten completely out of hand. One can’t just switch the meaning of something from something innocuous to horrific and then blast those of us who were not informed of your switch.
Buddhism still uses a swastika for their god Vishnu. The thumbs up sign, which means “I’m good,” or “it’s good,” means “up yours” in some Middle eastern countries. The index finger curling up to call someone over means death in Singapore and Japan. And, etc…
We have to be a little more sane. We have to come back down to earth. We need to reach out and build bridges. We need to stop accusing people of being horrible when we don’t know them, and we don’t know their hearts.
We need to start seeking love and not finding hate everywhere.
We’re ALL human. This is why we need God, because we DESPERATELY need grace.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this GRACE in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. ~Romans 5:1-2
