Following the chaos that stormed the Congress in Capitol, actress Patricia Heaton reminds Christians that this world “isn’t our home.”
Patricia Heaton To Christians
In a Tweet on Friday, Patricia wrote, “If you’re a common sense person, you probably don’t feel you have a home in this world right now. If you’re a Christian, you know you were never meant to.”
Then one Twitter user pointed out how he understands her sentiment but refuted what she said, saying her comment “feels escapist to me.”
But the actress replied, “We are meant to serve Christ while we are here.”
Another Twitter user commented, “Exactly how I feel. Both sides are yelling, ‘wake up,’ while there are blind spots on both sides. I’m a moderate conservative [and] get called names [because] of that. That’s OK. I’m a believer in Christ first [and] follow Him. This world is not my home, so I’ll love Him [and] others till I get there.”
“Exactly,” she tweeted back.
Moreover, one user testified how she was encouraged by the celebrity’s post. She said she “really needed to hear” it. Then she referenced the Scripture in Romans 12, “We are told not to conform to the patterns of this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our (own) mind. It’s very hard to get caught up with it all. It’s incredibly heavy.”
Patricia addressed his message on Twitter to discouraged Christians following the riots at the Capitol. Some protesters breach security and stirred chaos inside the building where the Congress convened to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory over outgoing President Donald Trump.
Following the tumult, several Christian leaders condemned the violence that stirred in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.
Also, President Donald Trump condemned the violent act. He vowed to a peaceful transfer of power on Jan. 20 to Joe Biden.
