Communication or lack there of:

Recently, I have lived in the cesspool non-communication. Communication is used in a manner to control. I don't like being controlled. Open and honest communication leads to trust and vulnerability. There are not many people who like to do this. I have been kept out of the communication process at times and it stinks. My point is this: What would Jesus have us do? I say He wants open and honest communication. He came for us to have a relationship with him. He didn't give us a list of do's and don'ts. He died for a relationship. He wants to communicate with us. How can we have a relationship with people who don't want to communicate with us? Lack of communication leads to mis-communication which leads to hurt feelings and mistrust. I never realized how important communication was until the last few years. I make a living as a communicator and am a student of communicators. Ronald Regan was called the Great Communicator. I miss him and loved him as President. He always made you feel good about being an American and just a human being. When I think about the communicators that I enjoy, it is those who make me feel better about myself. John Maxwell, Joel Osteen, Andy Stanley, Rick Warren, Bill Hybles, John Ortberg, Chuck Swindoll, Ed Young Jr. Wayne Cordeiro and others make me feel good. There are some who argue that we need messages that step on toes and stuff. I feel the Bible and the Holy Spirit are there for that. There is enough junk in the world to bring us down that I like to be around those who make me feel better. I appologize that I have failed to communicate in a manner that leads to intimacy. I have decided not to do this to others. I believe that communication leads to a relationship and need to have healthy relationships.
