This election has become even more important than ever before. Regardless of whether a justice to the Supreme Court is confirmed before the election or not, both scenarios could bring more violence and destruction.
Our Constitution and the extent of governmental control is at stake. Hell will break forth in the coming weeks, but we must stand firm. Prayer before the fact is a weapon to use against the agitators. The battle is the Lord’s. Our weapon is prayer. Become the remnant that sees ahead and prays ahead.
We must pray and vote as if our 244 year experiment in freedom and equality is on the line. It is! Our very existence as we know it depends on what we do in the next few weeks.
China is not our friend and we can thank numerous past Presidents and Congress who enabled China for years. President Trump is right to be hard on the communist regime. From crackdowns in Hong Kong, to silence and denial on the Wuhan virus and constant harassment of Christians in China which include confiscation of private property and imprisonment. Human rights is a joke. We need a tough policy on China. Below is a tweet from Sen. Tom Cotton, he is one of the good guys!
Washington, D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after China passed a national security law for Hong Kong:
“Xi Jinping and his Communist thugs must face severe consequences for crushing Hong Kong’s freedoms. The House of Representatives should pass the Hong Kong Autonomy Act to impose punishing sanctions on Chinese Communist Party officials. The administration should consider all options at its disposal to deny Beijing the benefits of Hong Kong’s special financial and economic status. We cannot ignore China’s draconian actions.”
Please don’t misunderstand my comment. Our leaders are making difficult decisions in difficult circumstances and we need to pray for them. My comments are more about how people have reacted. How willingly freedoms are being given up just to feel safe. How many freedoms are people willing to give up in order to feel safe about any national foe, whether COVID-19 or the next threat?
A sense of social responsibility has entered our culture like I have never witnessed. Have you seen mask wearers at the grocery store look condescendingly at the non-mask wearers? There seems to be a new breed developing of those who choose the good of the collective state and feel a sense of righteousness for their views and choices. If this choice of the collective over individual freedoms continues unstopped, we will be headlong into socialism and not even realize it.
This super social responsibility is fueling a perceived obligation that government is our ONLY provider for safety. Christians who have a biblical worldview (and many don’t) should question the unchecked willingness of people to obey any authority other than the God of the Bible.
I was born in the 1950’s.
I graduated High School during a turbulent time in American history. Vietnam war hippies, flower children, drug abuse, death and total distrust for Government and politicians. Distrust for any over the age of 30. Feeling that my generation would change the world.
We became the world.
We grew up, had families, got jobs and blended into the culture. We became just what we had earlier despised. No worries, we all do it. Where are those rebels now? Why is it so easy to trust people with an agenda? Why do we trust when it takes our freedoms away? Why do we walk lockstep the party line without question and them become informants for the “ruling class”? Lines are being blurred between liberty and the good of all. What will we look like as a society when this crisis is over. Can we go back to normal? What happens when the next crisis hits? Listen close, that sound you hear just may be the beginning cracks of our Constitution.
Rebels without a cause become sheep.
We live in a wild and crazy world. The Middle East is always one spark away from all out war, Russia and Ukraine, chaos in Africa, protest in France, N. Korea, and of course China.
Interesting that all the NATO leaders may publicly say they are not fond of President Trump, they sure do like to have their picture taken with him. Trump is always the most popular leader at all these events. Could it be they recognize a real leader when they see one?
What we need in this world is more Donald J. Trump and less of the soy boy leaders in Europe. If war broke out or disaster hits, it won’t be France, or Germany or Canada that responds. It will be the good guys in white hats from the United States of America. Pay up, sit down and shut up soy boy.
It’s clear from the Democratic candidates on the stage that if you own a gun for the protection of your family —they are coming for it!
@tperkins. Family Research Council
Rumor has it that man child Beto just spilled the beans about making guns illegal. None of the Democrats wanted the whole truth out there. Beto said we are coming for your guns. That won’t play well in 2020. Keep it up dems, you are destroying what little chance you had at making the Presidential election even close.
I honestly can’t figure out why they are doing what they are doing. I’m glad, they are showing all of us just who they really are. Bunch of socialist! America is not there! Maybe some day but not now, thank God!!
It is the best of times and the worst of times. We are in a battle for the soul of America, a philosophical civil war. Not with guns or bombs or sword, but with ideas and speech and political correctness that has run amuck. So much so we are destroying the very language we communicate with. Meaning of words have change, are you male, female, x, use the wrong pronoun you could get arrested. We are not fighting left vs. right, one political party against another, this war goes much deeper. Into the very depths and heights of spiritual warfare. We are fighting right vs. wrong and light vs. darkness. Our fight is for who will control our nation. Sinister forces are in play today to discourage and defeat the very plan of God for America. The Pilgrims dedicated this new land for Almighty God, and He has not relinquished His hand or sovereignty over us. We are in the fight of our lives, for the Devil knows his time is short and is doing all he can with the help of his minions to defeat the plan and purpose of this great nation. We are God’s land and never shall we turn from that! Will we have to fight? Yes! The dark side has money, media, and foot soldiers that will do anything to win, but we have a mission from Almighty God. Psalms 94:16 says “who will rise up for me against the evildoers?” America is the last and best hope for mankind. If we fail, the world is lost. America has sent money technology and most importantly missionaries to spread the Gospel all over the globe. We are a beacon of hope and light! Arrogance? No! A mission from God! Only Jesus can save our nation and world, but without the uniqueness of America and its freedoms and morality the world is a dark place. We in the church need to understand that the darkest of places need the light of the Gospel and the morality of a Godly people. So often we hear that the political realm is to dirty for Christians, however Jesus ate and communicated with what the religious leaders of that day called sinners and unclean people. We are called to be light and salt. Light illuminates and salt preserves. Salt can also be an irritant to a wounded nation, as we call out immorality and greed. Can we win this battle? Yes a thousand times yes, but will we? We have reaped in America what we have sown. That is a law of God. We reap after we sow and we reap more than we have sown. Now we must sow into politics to reap a harvest.
Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a reproach to any people.
Well it has begun again.
Elizabeth Warren: I will do every thing I can by executive order on gun controls.
Our Constitution will always be under attack when socialist speak. The first order every totalitarian government gives is to take away your means to defend your self. Think about that.
You can never legislate morality.
Evil people do evil things.
God have mercy on our nation.
