I am embarrassed to say that I do not stay up to date on what is going on in the news and in the world. I am unable to get passed my feeling that everything we see on the news is just skewed to the perspective that the viewers of that news station want to hear and…….I don’t believe there is any reality in politics AT ALL.
But….I do catch some pieces of information here and there because my husband is Israeli and Israelis tend to know what’s going on in the world. They kind of have to because they are located smack dab in the middle of a bunch of countries that want to destroy them and the UN seems to support the endeavor
Like I said before, I don’t believe anything that any news channel says. My husband and I argue about this all the time, but I find it very hard to believe that any body of people that control other people – whether they are considered “democratic”, “communist” or a “theocracy” ……and especially if they are considered a dictatorship…..have any intention of taking care of anyone but themselves.
I tend to believe that selfless and honorable political leaders like King David are rare and that is why King David is considered heroic and legendary – and most of us even believe that the Messiah is supposed to come from his line of descendants.
The character qualities necessary for a political leader tend to clash with the character qualities necessary for a spiritual leader. To be both in one…….is extremely rare.
With that being said, since my perspective from the get go is that no leader of any country has good intentions for the country itself, it is kind of hard to even talk about the subject of politics with anyone because I just don’t believe we know what is really going on behind closed doors……and anyone that claims to know should probably do a little more research.
I am sure that they will find many resources that will contradict what they think they know.
So, because I am not an expert on politics I cannot truly have an opinion on what is going on in the political arena…..but I want to mention one thing that is kind of grabbing my attention these days.
