http://bible.com/111/2co.5.13-15.niv If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
Are you out of your mind? I’ve been thinking a lot today about the internal conflict I have between my nationalistic principles and Christ’s love that is supposed to be working within me.
I’m starting to think that the two may actually not be in conflict. There would be too much typing for me to explain how I came to that conclusion. But, just know that the largest generation in the history of our country is retiring.
Subsequent generations are much smaller due to families having less children. Our country has aborted three times as many people as have immigrated here (or more). So, like it or not, we need more tax payers to take care of this older generation and to staff a sizable volunteer military. Otherwise our nation will fail to be a powerful voice for democracy around the world and default on the massive debt that we have incurred.
What say you?
