The Sunday Message

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. – Galatians 3:28 (NIV)

“I would sit in church and always wonder, ‘In God’s eyes, how does he see me?’”

“Maybe this is my cause in life.” “This is why God put me on this earth…to deal with this issue.” -Bruce Jenner

There were around 17 million people watching Diane Sawyer interview Bruce Jenner about coming out as transgender. (Source)

I actually applaud Jenner for telling his story – people need to understand this issue better (I know I do). Jenner said, “We’re going to make a difference in the world with what we’re doing…” That is a good thing because it may make someone understand transgender people better. Maybe it will keep the haters from hating so much.

One of the more interesting things to come out of the interview was Jenner basically saying he was a Republican and a Christian. (Source) I’m not sure how Republicans will feel about Jenner identifying with them, but I’m sure there will be those who say that Jenner can never be a Christian because of what he’s doing.

I know it’s hard, but we need to try not to judge those who are different from us.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Luke 6:37 (NIV)

Pray and read your Bible – it will help you have a better week!

Thursday Numbers

Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” If this is your first time visiting The Western Word, this is my weekly column where I take a look at the numbers in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes laced with just a little sarcasm.

NOTICE: If you read this column you will probably gain knowledge not found on other websites! You may be able to use this information to impress your family, friends, and co-workers. The information might even be life changing – so consider yourself warned…

This week I write about election coverage, Karl Rove, unemployment, Diane Sawyer, late registration, Stairway to Heaven, electoral votes, projected majorities in the 113th Congress, Montana’s voter turnout, idiot sign, and much more!
