Before you even read this posting let me make this clear.

It should be well established by now that I appreciate your insights, input, questions, and sharing of what you are going through and dealing with – this is how we feed one another as a Body and grow together, through sharing. That said, for this particular posting I make the following request. Do not write me with your comments about my decision to use “Helen Thomas” as an example in one of my posting. Guess why? Because you most likely have said something before you wish you had not said, you most likely have made a mistake publically you wish you had not made, and you most likely are human like all the rest of us.

This new way we seem to be doing things in this country, in the last ten years especially, has me baffled. If you make a mistake it wipes away every good thing you have contributed in your lifetime – wow what a burden to carry – we would all have to be Jesus, Perfection in the flesh.

I am not, you are not, and Ms. Thomas was not, so why don’t we just look at all her years, not just one really bad one.

What you have to remember is we can learn as much from our mistakes as we can our successes if we are willing to – just like we can learn from other people’s mistakes and successes if we look closely and are willing to learn. Learning through observing another is one of the least painful ways to learn something.

Now to my post…

Helen Thomas – Dare We Ask?

Helen Thomas / Member of the White House Press Corps / Opinion Columnist / American Author / News Service Reporter [August 4, 1920 – July 20, 2013].

“Traditionally, Thomas sat in the front row and asked the first question during White House press conferences.” Later in her career… “Thomas was moved to the back row during press conferences; She was called upon at briefings on a daily basis but no longer ended Presidential news conferences saying, "Thank you, Mr. President.” When asked why she was seated in the back row, she said, "they didn’t like me…I ask too mean questions.” – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A commentary on the actual facts.

Once Ms. Thomas had spent her time being punished, by being placed on the back row for wanting answers to questions, which were unpopular, she was once again called upon by the President. What did Ms. Thomas do? She asked, yet another, unpopular politically incorrect question which was carefully evaded.

Ms. Thomas remained true to her convictions, even under her own form of persecution, her banishment to the back row, and thus continued to do what she felt was right; to ask the questions which needed to be answered, to ask “too mean questions.”

Whether secular or spiritual Truth Seekers do just that; they ask questions people feel are too mean, too questioning, too demanding – questions, which require an actual answer, that can be supported by Truth.

 

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
