The Dominant Bull

Have you ever seen a couple of bulls fighting out in the pasture?  It happens occasionally.  Usually it is before or after the breeding season.  They are done with their primary job and have to burn off some of the pent-up energy I guess.

Usually it's a lot of pushing and shoving and bellowing and pawing the dirt but, rarely are there injuries.  It's funny because often when the bulls start fighting there will be a few of the cows pick a fight with some of their pasture mates too.  It can turn into a three-ring circus pretty quickly. 

It seems to me that's what is going on in Washington right now.  The Republican Bull and the Democrat Bull are pushing and shoving and making a lot of noise about who is in control.  The media is piling on and picking sides (a lot like the cows referenced above) and adding to the hoopla.  Then there are the inevitable social media battles where fans of each side post and re-post the propaganda put out by their side.  It would be humorous if it wasn't so serious in the potential ramifications of what they are all fighting about.  Just remember, God has given Satan dominion over the world.  I expect nothing good to come out of any of it.  Fortunately, although living in this world, I consider myself no longer a part of it.

"We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one." 1 John 5:19

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
