    Ferguson and GOD...How they relate.

    Funny for me how folks of a certain religious persuasion view the world.
    Truly amazing to me as I see the benefits of GOD on an everyday basis.
    Talk Radio guest today….Not of the clergy but of the community organizer and embrace peace over violence type.
    Dining, Living, and breathing in the community with those considered too aggressive,
     He said this today which I found profound.
    “The problem with the young generation of today is not that they’re fearless….Which many young generations before them have embraced”
    “The biggest problem I see in the community is many of THIS generation are fearless AND GODLESS!”
    This being the MOST IMPORTANT POINT…No belief in a higher power or a next life.
    As I talk to them they display to me that “Who Cares?” “There’s nothing to live for and anticipate after this life” attitude.
    Sorry Atheists and non-believers…..Truth is most folks respond very differently depending on their belief system…A FACT!....And believing in something beyond yourself, personal interests and knowing we have to answer for our sins and treatment of our fellow man matters…BIG TIME.
    I say this not of opinion but personal testimony…..Over my lifetime I’ve faced many forks in the road which displayed a wrong and right way to do things. ..Many or most of those forks were decided in a positive way based on my belief in truth in GOD.
    Can one understand this reality doesn’t have to apply to them to understand the benefits for mankind?
    I’m not the preaching type but listening to this person from the Ferguson area and dealing with the young people made more than sense to me.
    Makes me sad and sorry some won’t get it.
