- I know what I believe and my principles aren't likely to change.
- I don't like inviting trolls around for supper.
- I am anti-argument - I don't like starting them or participating in them.
- There are many, many people on the internet who express my particular point of view much more articulately and knowledgeably than I ever could.
But what I will say is that whenever this word "hope" is thrown around, I shudder. This is a powerful word. It shouldn't be used lightly. And it should never, ever be used in the context of a political candidate, because no one person can live up to how every individual in the country defines it.
My hope is not in any politician, or organization, or government. My hope is in my faith, in the knowledge that no matter what happens, how bad the economy is, or who ends up in the White House, I am saved for all eternity.
So if you're losing hope in the light of everything happening in the world today, allow me to borrow a line from an old Michael W. Smith song:
When things get bad,
And you can't stand to look,
It's time to read
To the end of the Book!
Don't put it down
'Til you get to the end
When Jesus comes
And His kingdom begins!
That's what I call hope!
