So here I am @ 4 am awake, writing another blog… I have sleep issues and I need to get that fixed…

So I took a poll about what I should blog about and apparently the few faithfuls would like to hear my opinion about Obama and the black church surprise surprise LOL…

So yeah… I don’t even really know how to start this post… I want to say I’m not dissing Barack Obama, nor am I down playing this historic event. I’m happy that Barack Obama’s skin color did not prevent people from voting for him but I also hope he was voted for, for the right reasons. That’s not why I’m writing this post however.

I’ve seen and heard some disturbing things regarding the Black Community specifically the Black Church and Barack Obama and I just wanted to put my opinions out there about it. I was on the way home from bible study listening to talk Radio and the guy, Austin Hill was complaining because he attended a church on Nov. 9 that he believed was worshiping Barack Obama with a huge picture of the President Elect and his family. He urged listeners to just to search google about Barack Obama and the Black Church and see how many results we’d turn up. He had callers infuriated because he was condemning the Black Community for their actions. I for one agreed with him (and I rarely agree with his views)… it was wrong for people to put someone so high that it borderlines worship; for God himself said

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before [a] me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me

Now I did what he suggested and it disturbed me… Now this one takes the cake too… I heard that there were people singing a song… the song In the Name of Jesus… and replacing the name of Jesus and inserting Barack… Now that is just wrong…. I just suggest that we check ourselves whether we are worshiping Barack Obama or something else… because it is a sin…

Side note: Barack Obama has done nothing yet… Just wait and see what he does… Also… you can’t compare him to Martin Luther King Jr. cuz he’s NOT him for one… and he’s not working for the same cause Dr. King was… Martin Luther King paved the way for this history to occur but they are as of yet… incomparable…

I’m not saying Barack Obama won’t do great things or achieve greatness… I just think people are holding him on so high of a pedestal he can do nothing but fail your expectations. You’re setting him up for failure so remember… if you’re upset don’t blame him… blame yourself.

So bear with me… I have like so many ideas to write about and I think about them and then when its time to sit down and write I forget Lol… so I’m going to write a blog about the things I will be writing about over the next few days to come LOL No specific order btw:

Barack Obama and the Black Community (specifically churches)
The Truth Shall make you Free (mini confessional about my former bad habit)
Time and how I waste it mixed with getting back on track with my goals
The joys of reading someone else’s blog
The gift of Christmas
The influence of friends of your actions
The power of words and confession
Overseas Missions
Being Single and loving it
To Write Love On Her Arms (a personal testimony of mine)
Laminin (Do not… I repeat… Do NOT steal my joy by goggling it!! LOL Warning, this is reverse psychology LOL)

LOL… I look like I’ve booked myself for some heavy blogging, but I’m actually excited to write about this stuff because its stuff I think about and stuff I want to get others opinions about and I don’t talk alot and this stuff is interesting and what I’d rather talk about then some of the things my conversations usually consist of now… like relationship problems, or family problems, or just life problems in general!!! LOL So yeah I think this’ll keep me busy for a lil while and I just can’t wait to see what others think Lol… SO I’m going to take a poll of which I should do first LOL because though I’d love to write them all right now… I do have to go to school tomorrow and need to sleep LOL
