Are You Woke or Awake?

Michael Mooney, Exec. Elder (126)

I live in Greenville SC.  I am married to the woman of my dreams and we have 4 children.  I have been in ministry 20+ years.  I graduated from Liberty University.  I have a Diploma of Biblical Studies, Bachelor of Science in Religion, Master of Business Administration, and a Master of I/O Psychology.  I most enjoy camping, music production, and basking in the presence of the Holy Spirit while worshipping.

  1. I have to come into conflict with the video and the concept that it is trying to define. "Woke"
    These are my thoughts, and I live it, so I know it to be true, but I would ask that you will give me the grace to at least read my response before you dismiss it. 

    1. When a group tries to define a moment or a conception that the defining group is antagonistic to.  They ( the defining grout)  will always without exception, pervert the intent of the movement. This has happened throughout history, even as far back as scriptures. 
    The expression "woke" has been around for over 50 years to my knowledge, I use the expression as a kid to express the ability to know reality above the status quo., or how everyone else says it is. 
    Woke is not about worldly applications in opposition to God, it is about truth. Woke is not a fad or new movement, it is the driving force that allows the truth to be, truth, despite personal opinions.
    In fact, I am writing this comment so that you might be "woke" 
    Proverbs 29:7, Proverbs 31: 8-9,  Deuteronomy 10:18, Isaiah 1:17, Romans 12:15-16,  Matthew 25:40,  James 1:27,  and Jeremiah 22:3 are just a few off the top of my head.

    These passages are here for a reason I'll get to them. soon enough.

    I know the world teaches, and sadly the church sustains a false reality which is that in every social and political problem there are two sides the conservatives and the liberals, democrats, and republicans, the have and have-nots,  the oppressed and the oppressors. but this mentality whether by Christians, or politics, or the world in general is flawed because it takes God, Jesus Christ out of the equations.
    The Truth is just like there are three (3) teams at every football game, there are three (3) sides to every problem.  and unless we are in line with the team that has power, we will always be in conflict with the team that appears against us.

    It sacres me when those that are asleep talk about being "woke" If you really want to understand "woke" you gotta first open your eyes and "be woke!"
    Let me help you with this, pick a passage above, meditate and pray on it.  and ask God to reveal it to you concerning social injustice. And don't let go of the passage until God speaks to you. 

    Most of you will ignore my request, (Matthew 7:13-14)  some of you will do it half-heartedly, but a few will not grow weak (Hebrews 11:6)

    I pray the Lord Jesus Christ and our God will bless the reader of this comment.
    I trust that I have not mistakenly represented our savior
    Be woke my brothers and sisters
    To God be the glory
    (John 8:32)
