On a normal circumstance I normally do not report these, but I was going through my Twitter feed and I came across a statement which had been thinking about for a long time. The statement in question, came from the renowned author and creative mind Stephen King. His reference was directed at Mike Pence, the current Vice President of the United States of America.
"Given his Christian beliefs, Mike Pence must believe the day will come when he will have to stand before the throne of God and explain why he put politics ahead of human lives in the matters of masks and public gatherings."
This is something which has weighed deeply on my mind for a long time. Granted this tweet was almost five days ago, I felt like I have resonated with this since I was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. As a learning Christian myself, I have always wondered why people don't actually strive to live by the teachings of God and Jesus Christ. Some of these teachings, helps us find accomplishment as well as the will to endure any trouble which may face this anytime. Jesus Christ, was a wonderful teacher regardless of what you believe about him. This has been stated by buddhists, as well as many other ancient religions which have had the knowledge of knowing who Jesus Christ was.
A single man traveled the across lands afar to preach the word of God. This single man unified nations through his teachings, as well as garnering love and respect from people around the world. One profound statement was about helping the poor and the needy. At this time, the poor were often ignored and left in the dirt to die. He went to the trouble of are actually helping feed the people good he meant in his travels. He and the apostles worked together in order to help serve. He focused on bringing the best of Humanity out.
In this age, people in the United States have the opportunity to eat but don't have the best living arrangements because of the costs. It is much easier to lose money than gain it in the United States, unless you already had the money to start with. However, I have witnessed kind hearts donating to wonderful causes including the Nonprofit I am working towards. I struggle understanding what drives people to do such things as ignoring the suffering pleas of others. Many families have lost their jobs, cars, and even their homes because of the mixed up response of Covid 19. I wonder, will Mike Pence be able to answer for allowing so many people to suffer l. Will those of us be able to answer for our selfish desire not to wear a mask?
I know God will judge me more strongly, because I am more compassionate about life than most people in this age. All I can do is ask for forgiveness, and make a stronger effort to wear a mask in public. Maybe that's all any of us can do. Whether or not you believe in God, we should always put life over politics. I know many people would disagree, especially those who are fully pro choice. However, I can not pull away from my convictions. Not when I know life is in serious peril.
