Watching those who speak and/or write about society, is it possible to avoid the ethos of anger or disappointment?
One of the popular ways someone can gain people to join a cause is through anger and disappointment. Check the political debates. Read your favorite columnist. Watch the pundits on Sunday. Listen to the radio. Check out a message board. Go to a local cafe. Participate in a discussion in a church fellowship hall.
Sometimes I read my own blog and discover that my most "popular" blog posts are when I am my angriest.
Join me in reading John 3:16-17. On what section do you focus?
I recognize I come from a place of privilege in the world. I also know injustice is rampant, which makes me sad, angry, and often disappointed. Once in awhile, I'll do something about it.
If God actually loves the world (or was it only a one time thing when Jesus showed up), I have a hard time reconciling that all I can do is be disappointed or angry with the world.
