Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven." (Matthew 18:21-22, ESV)

Here’s the Attitude We Need in Our Politicians

No Gravatar

If I could find this attitude in but one politician, I’d vote for him for emperor.

Let the righteous strike me;
It shall be a kindness.
And let him rebuke me;
It shall be as excellent oil;
Let my head not refuse it.
–Psalm 141:5

Fat chance finding a politician *spit* with that kind of genuine humility. They used to call such persons “statesmen” until the breed became extinct.

(BTW, our political leaders could all benefit from a culling of the herd by means similar to the voice “juries” I experienced as a youthful voice student. Insightful criticism by folks who know what they’re talking about and whose critique cannot be gainsayed. But who among the foxes could we select to guard against the foxes ruling the hen house? Perhaps once upon a time, in some halcyon age of yore, citizens performed such a function upon our chosen representatives, but now, since most voters are culturally, historically and even functionally illiterate, greedy, lazy bums, what we get are culturally, historically and even functionally illiterate, greedy, and stupidly crooked–are you listening, Tom Daschle? Of course not–representatives of the electorate to serve as foxes in the hen house.)

Right on. Have I asked you, yet, if would like to join TCU Nation (The Conservative Underground)? It’s a new place where we’re trying to herd all the powerhouse TRUE conservatives and lesser knowns (like me, lol). Check it out, if you like or if you get the time. I’m just tired of waiting around waiting for things to change while there is something I can do to help participate in that change. 😉
