Thought for Today

Teddy Roosevelt said “Speak softly but carry a big stick.”  What he meant was “be cautious and non-threatening in your words, but have the ability to defend yourself.”

Benjamin Franklin said “Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”

Jose Marti said “Mankind is composed of two sorts of men: those who love and create; and those who hate and destroy.”

James the half brother of Jesus said “If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.” (James 1:26)

And finally, Jesus said “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” (Matthew 15:11)

What were they all saying?

Contemplate what you are about to say before you open your mouth, because afterwards, it is too late to undo the damage. ~ ME

  1. “Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16) Paul the Apostle

    • Your truth is only as clear as your bias allows. You live among Muslims here in America and have probably interacted with them on more than one occasion. Yet, you still walk and breathe and not a single one of them has threatened to kill you. That said, you still claim they are all evil and want to kill you. “It’s not what goes into your mouth, but that which comes out that defiles you” Jesus said.

  2. A Muslim is a person who follows the religion of Islam. When you talk about one you are talking about the other. It is no different than when you talk about a Christian it is a follower of the religion taught by Jesus Christ. The two are inseparable.

    Your inability to open your eyes past what you first stated is not worth further effort. Go on preaching your fear mongering and trying to get others to condemn people based upon their faith, but not on my page. All further comments will be deleted.
