Cognitive Dissonance: @dictionarycom
anxiety that results from simultaneously holding contradictory or otherwise incompatible attitudes, beliefs, or the like

Example # 1 of simultaneously holding contradictory beliefs: "Love your neighbor as yourself" and "America First." ~~ Example # 2: Thinking the brown, black, and/or less wealthy people in your community or country are unworthy of help, compassion, or credibility while simultaneously participating in or supporting mission work with the aim of helping or showing compassion to the brown, black, and/or less wealthy people in a developing country. ~~ Example # 3: Supporting a policy that inflicts trauma on innocent children while simultaneously disapproving of child abuse. ~~ Example # 4: Supporting policies you would have criticized if the opposing party had done them. ~~ My guess is, if the Obama administration had enacted the family separation policy, videos of crying children would have been all over Fox News and they would be decrying the inhumanity of it.
My guess is, if the Obama administration had decided to leave the UN Human Rights Committee, Republican talking heads would have accused him of secretly being a Muslim terrorist trying to ruin America. ~~ #cognitivedissonance #hypocrisy #doublestandards #christianitytoday #wwjd #loveyourneighbor #immigration #familyseparationpolicy #refugees #missiontrip #racism #trump #republicans #hebrews13 #wednesdaymood

MP-Broken Up
As the dirty doctrines flatline healthy churches (Colossians 2:21-22), the sub-culture of secession among Christian unity is prevalent for denominational standards (Revelation 21:27a). Baptists, generally, have no ire with splitting from another congregation depending on the circumstances, if the clarity of The Gospel is perhaps muddied (Matthew 5:29b). Whether one can tell if this is completely beneficial or not is beyond the point, as the purity of believers and their convictions is the necessary concern here (Hebrews 13:9). As we have suffered, though, being observers in the pew, hundreds of individual consensus’ have been adopted where joint bodies of confessing Christians once were: “But that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10b). We have witnessed the downsizing of church congregations due to an increase of separatists notions, who earn it honestly in their geneticism. The polities we have understood provide cause for one person to leave and for a barrage of personages to follow. Thus, some sects are a majority among Baptistic unions, while there remain a plentitude and plurality of miniscule faiths, dotting the outskirts of Southern cities and Northern provinces. Christ has pervasively stressed the connecting of churches, withstanding the idea of separating at any one time: “That they may be one, even as we are one” (John 17:22b). While the days grow eviler and the times are telling of Jesus’ imminence (Ephesians 5:15-17) (Hebrews 1:1-4), we labor to conserve the Treaty of Conscience, The Bible of God, and to do so while being in a single, orthodox church-building: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). God help us in this (Hebrews 4:16).

Pineapple People.

I love pineapple. I mean, I’m one of those people who enjoys this festive fruit on pizza, diced, dipped in chocolate, chopped in chunks, or plain in the palm of my hand. It’s delicious not only in its decadence but also in significance. •
Have you ever heard the saying “Be a pineapple: stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside”? All good advice in regards to the outside onlooker, but at a deeper level what if the pineapple was a picture of our personhood in Christ? Hear me out on this one.•
Pineapple are equipped with a durable exterior and a spiky stalk, protecting the fruit inside. A mature pineapple plant can stand firmly anywhere from 3 to 6 feet in height! This fascinating fruit has its own version of the armor that we read about in Ephesians 6:13: “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” •
Next let’s talk about that crown. It’s hard to miss isn’t it? Talk about a royal statement! Scripture tells us that when we recognize Christ as Lord, we are adopted into the family of the living God, the King of all Creation! Wear that crown, sons and daughters of the King, it suits you! “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 •
Finally, there’s a certain sweetness inside. Pineapples are known as symbols of hospitality and welcome, shouldn’t the heart of a Christ follower reflect the same qualities? I’m not talking about the cavity-inducing kind of sweetness, I really mean the honest one we read about in Hebrews 13:1-2 “Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” and in Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” •
Yes, the pineapple presents a great picture of who we are in Christ and how we ought to be carriers of crowns and compassion. That’s the kind ⬇️

Jesus Christ is The same Yesterday today and Forever.

All kinds of goodies in this chapter. He. Is. The. Same. #hebrews13

When times are tough or things are quite going the way you’d hope - my friend, @stephburdine coined this phrase. She cracks me up! Puts everything in a more manageable perspective. Hebrews 13:6
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. Hebrews 13:14

I've got good news! And the good news is…Jesus is still saving, healing, and delivering. He's still setting people free in every area of their lives.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. —Hebrews 13:8
