Another mass killing has occurred, this time it was not with guns but with a rented truck and carried out by an Islamist soldier in the likes of attacks carried out in Europe. Families are mourning the death of their loved ones, and others are hoping for the recovery of the injured. Is this beginning to make you sick to your stomach?
Any devastation of massive proportions brings out the best and worst in human nature. Upon seeing the destruction and human suffering, many people’s hearts are moved, and the desire to help the unfortunate takes over. Loving your neighbors is manifested in displays of compassion and heroism even to the point of putting your life on the line and in the process lending a helping hand. On the other hand, there are a few that let their evil tendencies take over to exploit the crises for personal gain; these people are devoid of compassion. The good hearts always surpass those of evil, and that is always the good news.
Monuments such as statues, sculptures, paintings, obelisks, parks names, and constructions represent cultures, ideologies, religions, or just remembrance of a person of renown and their contribution that honors their memories, which may date back to thousands of years. However, even those, in time, have been destroyed for varied reasons.
Editor’s Note: We are living precarious times where so much has flipped upside down that it has become difficult to tackle each issue as it comes. It’s not because it is impossible, but it is coming from every direction and people, specifically, Christian America is so weakened that many are unprepared and fall into the trap. However, there is hope. We have the instruction manual to pull us out of the rubble of humanistic ideology. It is important to understand first what it is we are up against to do battle spiritually, individually and collectively. The darkness may be unhinged and believe it has free reign to control and overpower God’s people. However, light breaks through darkness anytime, anywhere it shines; and it is time his people learned to discern this darkness and how to stand against it with wisdom.
The following editorial was written April 2016 but is an important reminder to all of God’s people that we need not fear what lies ahead. Please read and be encouraged that with God we are the majority, and have all necessary tools to become the head and not the tail.
The increase of suicides in America is rapidly rising. They include people of all ages who apparently don’t know how to cope with life. Those who commit suicide think it is the only alternative to end their problems. Most families, civil government, and social institutions, for the most part, have a sense of impotence.
George Washington wrote to John Hancock (Circular), June 11, 1783, thinking that after serving as the Commander of the Continental Army he was ready to retire to the place he missed the most, his estate in Mount Vernon, VA. However, the instability of events after the War of Independence needed urgent attention.
Beware! We are approaching a dangerous social climate of bloodthirsty savages like a pack of ravaging wild beasts, and they must not be brushed off. The demand for the execution of President Trump and GOP elected officials is not a laughing matter. Reprehensible voices are being raised like a choir throughout the media fueling the discord and driving an even wider wedge between left and right.
The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, who opened fire on Republicans and other people at a baseball practice the day before the Congressional baseball game, was no psychopath, he doesn’t fit the clinical profile as some pretend to portray him. According to The Week, restaurant owner Charles Orear was acquainted with Hodgkinson through some work they did together in Iowa on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Orear described Hodgkinson as “more on the really progressive side of things,” as well as being “a quiet guy” and “very mellow, very reserved.”
President Trump’s speech on Thursday, June 1, 2017, triggered the expected and augmented HYSTERIA, not only in the U.S. swamp but also in the worst arena, the international community. The Europeans are unhinged, and with the help of those American wannabes-European decrying the end of the world, saying people will die, the collapse of the nations is imminent, the oceans will rise destroying coastal cities, Trump must be removed, and the merry-go-round continues.
What we are seeing is nothing bizarre or unheard of that is overtaking this nation. We are simply witnessing what other countries live day in and day out: it is the result of power hungry elites motivated by selfish interest and using the history illiterate populace in an attempt to gain control at any cost. Even though America was born with a different vision than the one that now dominates, we must admit it is swiftly transitioning to be part of an odd world that will not end well unless it changes toward the right direction.
“The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society – and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic.” – Eric Fromm, Swiss Psychologist (The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness)
The Democrat National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez doesn’t care to hide the radical ideological agenda of his political party. Now, he demands that Democrats stop hiding the agenda that is well-known, and that is to get in line with Planned Parenthood or get out of the Democrat Party.
Reasonable, responsible parents want the best for their families; this truth applies to Christians and non-Christians alike. Good intentions are not enough, and every one of us is responsible for the social outcome for the present and future generations.
