The dehumanization of the Unvaccinated

              The Dehumanization of the Unvaccinated                                        I have recently seen a new radical attitude of hostility against Unvaccinated Americans. With President Biden setting the precedent. I was surprised by Joe Biden's latest speech where he tells unvaccinated Americans that his patience is waning thin. I have never heard a President address American people with such sustain.      In my career, my specialty is to study Behavior so I had to think of the deeper meaning behind this. I could be wrong but my conclusion is this is a start of a process to dehumanize unvaccinated Americans.      There was absolutely no compassion or positively motivated unvaxxed Americans to get vaccinated but it was filled with shaming and threats. I did some research on people dehumanize others and I found an uncanny resemblance of the 4 step plan and what is going on.    1.

Only God can Judge me.

                                    Only God Can Judge Me                                                                                                  I remember when this saying was popular. I really didn't put to much thought in the statement. TuPac had a song titled "Only God can judge me", that popped into my mind when I was thinking about this topic. I listened to it again to remember the lyrics. I don't agree with all the lyrics but very nice beats!                                                                                       Anyways I was just thinking how people can be on two extreme spectrums of this statement, "Only God can Judge me". One view is that I can do drugs and rob, live like the devil and only God can judge me. That's not the real world, people out there are constantly judging. If I do a crime tomorrow a Judge and Jury will soon be judging me.  I will get judged on my job review for the year. Yes at on

Slaves to Sin

                 Slaves to Sin                                                                          I love allegories and metaphors. I am a visual thinker so images really help me understand things. I recently met someone who has diabetes and had an organ transplant. Things were going very well with the transplant but there came a time where he was under a lot of stress and stopped taking the medicine that helped support his transplant. As a result the organ was rejected. It was his pancreas. He regrets not taking his medicine now.  Back to this story in a moment.     I am reading Romans in the bible and trying to understand the concept of Sin. How even I still sin and get caught up with things of the flesh and I am a Born Again Believer and how in Romans 6:6 It says, For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin, because anyone who has dies has been freed from sin.
