The Way of the Coward is the Way of Big Government

It is not enough to just ‘change’. The change must be for the better.

‘Change’ is being crammed down the throats of the people like food through a feeding tube in a psych ward.
We have a lot of lazy people who would rather be force fed than have to chew the food for themselves, so some people don’t consider that all bad.
These people are satisfied to let government choose the way they live, if the government pays for it. It is funny that these same people
These people are so blinded by the idea of a free ride that never consider that the government will never pay enough to actually cover the cost of anything except the equivalent of a second rate bicycle.
These people are willing to accept whatever form of government is necessary to provide them with ‘benefits’.
These people are willing to give up any and all freedoms that are not in line with the ‘benevolent’ government.
These people are somewhat opposed to calling the government nasty names like ‘socialist’ and ‘communist’.
They know words like that are ‘bad’, and they know that a government that promises them salvation and an easy ride cannot be bad.
They are too lazy or greedy to study the issues. They are content to ‘feel’ good about the nice things politicians are saying.
These people are willingly ignorant of the facts that:
Change is never easy.
Change is often NOT for the better.

These people are cowards.
They afraid to take responsibility for their own lives.
Their ‘’reactionary’ lifestyle will get them into trouble.
Unfortunately, it gets the rest of us into trouble as well.

On the other hand:
Other’s like to chew their own food. Being force fed goes against their grain.
They like to make choices in their own lives.
They are willing to live with the consequences of their actions.
They probably consider their actions a little more carefully in the first place than those who expect the government to bail out their behinds every time they get in over their heads.
These people have studied the issues.
They are not making decisions based on fear and ‘worst case scenarios’.
They have counted the cost of reaching their goals.
Due to the number of ‘feel good’ politicians and ‘feel good’ voters, these thinking people know full well that the government will not only NOT help them, they will probably hinder their success at every turn.
They are courageous enough to go ahead anyway.

Honestly, government adoration or outright worship is the coward’s way out.
Cowards seldom win even temporarily.
They never have real long term solutions to real problems.
They most they can look for is a temporary change that will cause them more problems in the future.
That means most of the people looking to the current government leadership to solve their problems, pay their mortgages, and send them eternal prosperity, are doomed to disappointment and even worse problems than they are already facing.

Cowards are ruled by fear. The courageous are also often fearful, but their faith is greater than their fear.

For Christians, their faith is in God Almighty.
Our God has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)
Our God has promised to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory. (Philippians 4:19)
Our God forbids worship of anything or anyone above Him. (Exodus 20:23, Deut. 5-7) This means we are not to look to the government to supply all our needs, or provide us with our daily benefits. (Psalm 68:19)
Our God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 16:11)

The way of the coward will bring change for the worse.
The cost of this change will be paid for by everyone.

The way of the courageous will bring change for the better.

Whether you like it or not, you are part of change.
Are you following the way of the coward?
Or, are you following the way of the courageous?
