Question: How Do You Respond To Those Who Say You Do What You Do To Get Attention?
Donald Bohanon: It depends on what you mean when you say attention. If you are talking about drawing attention to God and the truth as is outlined in God’s word.
And dispelling the lies and false information that conflict with God’s word then yes. I would certainly be doing it for that kind of attention because that’s what we are commanded to do by God. And that’s why other true servants of God do it as well.
And I would be no different in that regard. The goal is always to draw attention to God and the truth outlined in his word. But if you mean to get attention with the sole objective being to impress certain individuals, ie, liberal celebrities, etc, then absolutely not. Anyone who thinks I do it for that reason is absolutely ignorant and doesn’t know or understand me at all. Or what I’m doing.
Otherwise, they wouldn’t make ridiculous statements like that. My goal from the very start has been to teach the truths of the Bible. Not garner the attention of wealthy liberal celebrities. I could care less about what a liberal celebrity thinks about what I do, or anyone else for that matter.
Now if I had come out in support of many of their twisted views and destructive agenda. I would be labeled a pioneer, knowledgeable, insightful, a trail-blazer, honest, a forward thinker, progressive, etc, etc, etc. As opposed to an attention seeker. Only if my views line up with theirs would I then be praised and rewarded.
The motivation is not to get the attention of liberal celebrities and or wealthy liberals in hopes of impressing them. Many who live in complete defiance of God’s word and promote rebellion against God’s word, and wouldn’t be my kind of people to associate with anyway. So why would I want to impress them when in most cases we have nothing at all in common and don’t share the same views or world view? How much sense does that make?
Normally when you have views that conflict with theirs or you expose them and their lies, they normally respond with ridiculous claims like that. Among other forms of biased, inaccurate, criticisms.
My goal and objectives have always been to teach the truth to the masses and impress God. Not liberal celebrities. I could care less what delusional, materialistic, arrogant, self-willed, self-righteous, prideful, egotistical, self-glorifying, liberal celebrities (which include false ministers) think about what I say and do.
As much as they would like to think that, and deceive themselves, nothing I do is centered around them or based on impressing them. That’s really ridiculous and shows how ignorant and arrogant they really are. And how much they are totally missing the point and the objective.
They only normally come to mind when I see something they’re doing that can be defined as misrepresenting God and very destructive and I call them out on it. But outside of that their views regarding what I do and why I do it are irrelevant to me.
And nothing that I do is to get their attention or impress them. In many cases, they are the real attention seekers. Not the other way around. They will understand what I was doing in due time.
And will realize they should have been listening and acting (if they don’t make changes) as opposed to criticizing. I don’t necessarily have any bad feelings against them or anyone else. They are just obviously ignorant, blind, and ill-informed. That’s the truth of the matter.
