Christian, the traveler in the classic Pilgrim’s Progress, expressed his frustration with “carnal cogitation.” He recognized that worldly thinking was a battle he would always fight.
This week my local Representative, Justin Amash, discovered that he has been removed from committees by his own Republican leadership. Why? Because of his commitment to conservative voting.
Louisiana Congressman, Jeff Landry, is also fighting to remain effective as a State Representative. Republican leadership in Washington does not want this conservative mindset in their House!
John Boehner is playing politics with our conservative Representatives. Worldly thinking is taking over the Republican Party. Guys like Boehner are in the wrong fight!
Washington changes minds. This Christmas season these worldly Republican leaders should relieve the bell ringers outside of stores and call out their true heart’s message, “Carnal Cogitations to all!”
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.” (Romans 8:6-8/NIV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
