Our country is more divided and divisive than I have ever seen it — it’s so sad. I believe this is a by-product of people in this country rejecting God and not honoring life. Since 1973, approximately 58,000,000 babies have been aborted. I believe that this rejection of God and life is part of the reason that people call good evil, and evil good. The Bible says, Woe to them who do such things. It’s a stern warning.
Today, people call morality hate and the protection of life uncaring. They say that, somehow, we don’t understand. This type of rhetoric is what is destroying our country. What is causing the divisiveness that we are seeing? Political correctness has replaced truth. True love is honest — tells the truth.
We all need to come back to making God and His word the compass of our lives. The Bible says if we judge ourselves, we won’t be judged. Evaluate your own life, your own heart, and see if God is truly first. Is the word of God leading your life or is something else?
We need to have the courage to call evil, evil and good, good! God is the author of all that is good, and He has told us what is evil — all immortality is evil, all murder is evil, and all lies are evil.
We need to respect life and to realize that all human life and the inalienable rights of all God’s creation are important. Why? Because we received them from God, Himself, and no one else. Let’s treat everyone with kindness and respect.
Just a thought,
