I have been reading some of the posts and got to wondering how so much animosity is being displayed by different anonymous bloggers. To them I say, remain anonymous and please continue to contribute. That is the purpose of this forum, However, please do not contribute to negative thinking. The election is over. The side, that wanted to continue business as usual lost. God did prevail and the agenda must move forward. Just because the idea’s of NO, popularity, and opaque decision making were forced to the bottom of the barrel does not mean you should grab another person’s aspirations and bring them down with you. It is the age old theory, “Crabs in a barrel.” I recently read the post that Left Behind was a condemning minister. This statement was indicative of a person attempting to get a reaction. I pity this individual and ask the blog to pray for him or her because they have obviously fallen into the depths of despair for some unknown agenda that may may not come to fruition. To you I say, Let not your heart be troubled….and Let go of my foot. The bible is full of examples of men attempting to stand in the way of God’s will. We are finite beings, we cannot understand or even attempt to contemplate what the Almighty has planned for this conference. His will, will be done. Let us not be stubborn, but unite to achieve a common goal behind our leader.
What this blog and Left Behind did in the past months to make constituents aware was the most risky and admirable thing a minister or layperson could do. The education of young people and lay people about the constitution ensured you did not have a regime of political bosses deciding for themselves the future of this conference over potluck or postem. We are all Left Behind, just like we are all Martin Luther King or any other leader who goes through the struggle and sacrifice to make change. Even the anonymous blogger who believes ministers are selfish is left behind because through his own insecurities he can see that his future is brighter because of the post and stories Left behind contributed. He has been left behind by his cohorts and must now deal with the ever changing environment for the better. Because I wrote this post does that make me Left Behind’s son or brother, or cousin? Does it mean I am a young person or older? None of us know each other, but we do know that the SWRC needed a change. The same old politics was being practiced and Left Behind blew the whistle. So what! Get over it. In my opinion he should have done it 15 years ago if he knew about it. Unfortunately the blogs did not exist and that would have contributed to his relocation or unemployment. That is whats so outrageous. Should we condemn anyone? No. However, refusing to grasp reality, and instead grasping another’s aspirations is counter productive. So, Let Go of my foot and either give me a push, or get out of my way.
It is that simple. Now, predicting the reaction of this post is very easy. An anonymous blogger will come on and state that I am a Left Behind sympathizer. I am not. But then I will ask, what is your basis for that logic? I will also ask, who do you sympathize with? Hopefully we have a discussion and exchange ideas. Thats what the blog is supposed to do. It is not a beat me up session for a particular side. What’s more is, challenges went out to the Rat Pack, the former leader, and anyone else to express their viewpoint and to date nothing has been submitted. Not one iota of emotion, expression, and more importantly and idea. When the President of the US is being beat up by Fox News, he still answers questions from their reporters. This shows me that either they lost interest because they lost, or they had ideas that were not in the interest of the people but of themselves. Is that Godly? Its not for me to say. However, this blog waits for someone to offer ideas that are from the opposite side that are clear and transparent. Until then, Let Go of my Foot!
