“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?
Wow, what a question. That’s really kinda funny. Here we are blogging about it. I would have to disagree. I am pouring my heart out to a lot of people I don’t really know lately. I think that is the fun of it! And thank you all for listening, I really appreciate your kindness and mercy. We do talk about a lot of “hard” things sometimes.
Politics and religion; these are two areas where people in general have very strong beliefs. And there are those instigators that like to argue and stir up the pot. So, I guess I would “test the spirits” when someone asks either question. What is the attitude behind the question? Curiosity, interest, or is someone just baiting you and waiting to pounce on your answer. This happens in both politics and religion. I think that’s why so many people do not talk about it. They don’t want to get hit over the head.
Jesus came and specifically admonished the Religious Sect, for their attitudes. You know the type, the “I’m better than you” or “I’m right and you are wrong” or “I know everything and you know nothing.” person. Pride, arrogance, and self-absorption is a turn-off for anyone. And so is lying. Once again, “test the spirits”. Power has a strange effect on people.
