Because Life Is Too Short To Spend It At War With Yourself

I believe every word of the Bible to be God breathed by a perfect God through imperfect men to reach and redeem imperfect people. Imagine a God like that!

As much as my husband loves me, NOBODY can love me like that. That's why I refuse to deny Him, dumb down his word for political expediency and why I chose to extract myself from political party affiliation.

I couldn't have it both ways. If loving my neighbor meant I had to hate or denigrate Democrats to ingratiate myself more deeply with Republicans, I couldn't do it.

If I had to denounce creation as male and female and deny God's definition of marriage in order to be in good with the Democrats, I couldn't do it.

Jesus came to save the world. What is "the world?" Its systems. Government system. Business system. Entertainment system.... people make up these systems.

He saves his people and sends us into the systems to change them to advance God's kingdom and to influence for eternal good, others.

But instead of us changing them we are ill-equipped because we don't spend enough time with Him and in the Word and fall for the allure of the systems and instead of us changing them, they change us and curse the very God that sent us.

So no, Dorothy Burton hasn't changed. Dorothy Burton just made up her mind whose side she's REALLY on.


Dorothy Burton is an author, conference and keynote speaker for various organizations and governments across the country. She is the author of the new book, Why We Fall: The Power of Self-Awareness.
