Feeling good isn’t a good goal

Feeling good isn’t a good goal

I’m writing this letter at three o’clock. The hour of Jesus’ crucifixion and His life-giving mercy. Did it “feel” good to save the lives of us sinners? Painful it was.

Liberal theology is the religion of “feeling good.” Why are politicians telling women who have been raped to abort their baby conceived in pain? Isn’t it so that supposedly the women will “feel good?”

I don’t want to go to church to “feel good” but rather to repent of sin and to thank God for His mercy.

Why are black Baptists going to vote Democrat? Why are older generation Catholics voting Democrat? It doesn’t “feel good” to “defeat evil” by voting Republican. What would Jesus say to that?

Because morality begins with the individual not some politician.

Unfortunately, America has become a secular society and have gotten away from the ideals of our founding Fathers. This election will be the "turning point" for our country. Do we support the DEMOCRAT platform which originally took GOD out of their platform or do we return to the American values and vision?
May God bless America with the right decision on Nov. 6th.

I'm always baffled that people refer to the founding father's faith as a tool to advance their own religious views. The founders each had a vast array of religious ideas and faiths. Most of them didn't agree with each others, but they all believed that people (men/mankind) were dignified glorious creations whom their Creator granted the liberty to believe whatever they chose. That faith is a far cry from most of today's religious faiths which jump at every chance to tell people they are worthless junk.

@vinytalk
It must have got stuck. Or the Vindicator thought it was so spot on that it needed to be published twice.

I'm sorry, but if you are going to write a letter to the editor, at least put some coherent thought behind it. I'll point out the ramblings of a lunatic all day long.

Here's what Jesus said about abortion and actual infantcide, both of which existed in his day, " ".
Yep. Nothing. But he had plenty to say about judgmental outwardly religious folk who suck all the joy out of life.
