             American Political Polarization                      A New Mental Illness   It is May and it it currently Mental Health Awareness Month. I decided to write a few blogs on the subject. Including that I think that America is dealing with a mental illness itself. That mental illness is called, Political Polarization or for short, Poli-polar       Poli-Polar is a devastating severe mental illness. Signs and Symptoms of Poli-Polar are the following Trouble Sleeping at night, nightmares Excessive focus on news and shows focused on political programming Hating people of the opposing Political team that you are on Engaging in Political discrimination and thinking all people of the opposite party are exactly the same and evil Most time is consumed on how to fight the other party and to expose them Hate is more in your heart then love Thinking only the good people are on your Political Party Deleting friends on Social Media because of their Political Party Not allowing others to ha

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.
