Hello! Hope everyone is well. We had a great time last weekend with our kids and grandkids and our great-grandson who turned 2! I am working on a new video for our special offer website. If you haven’t seen the site yet, go to www.thedoorwaybook.com and you will see what an awesome job Shane and his crew have done for us.
Now to continue last week’s story:
Last week we ended by introducing you to two people by telling you their deeds.
First I introduced you to someone who cut taxes then implemented a national project and the economy and living standard of the people of the United States soared.
Next I introduced you to someone who told everyone if they follow them their lives would be better. They told everyone, I will do everything for you. The people followed them. They grabbed power and then started killing anyone they felt like killing.
Now to continue the story of how as a people, we are much closer than you think.
In order for you to understand who these people are, I need you to picture a circle with a line down the middle, splitting the circle in half vertically. One side of the circle is the right side, the other is the left. Right wing, left wing. Now point your index finger straight out and put them together in front of you. Here with your hands together the right wing and the left wing come together. Here the right wing and the left wing agree on almost everything.
Both say we should help people. Lift people. Help them to be better than they think they can be. Here the left and the right go out of their way to better people’s lives.
Now I want you to slowly separate your hands and start to draw a circle. As your hands get farther and farther apart the left and the right disagree on more and more things. Then you finally reach the bottom of this circle. Here the right wing and the left wing come together on almost everything again. Only here they are so radical they will murder anyone who doesn’t abide by their belief system.
We get so entrenched with what team we are on, we not only refuse to see the good the other team has, we also refuse to see the bad on our team.
The best way for me to show you this team attitude is for me to introduce you to the people I spoke about last week in this blog.(more…)
