“Hey! Shut up! Don’t lie to me. You think I’m blind. But I’ve got eyes to see.” Yeah, a lot of what’s going on in America reminds me of those first couple of lines from Bonnie Raitt’s song “Have a Heart.” And I know it’s not a direct correlation, but it’s how my Rhyme and Reason brain works. It connects that rhyme and those lyrics with how ne’er-do-wells who practice to deceive would actually prefer to silence the opposition.
And right now they silence the opposition through a faulty system.
But given time you can expect them to escalate their strategy to include physical harm…and even death.
And to most people (sadly) my assertions will sound like paranoia or a conspiracy theory. However, most people aren’t aware of how human nature is basically deceitful and wicked. So, the most despicable deeds throughout human history tend to repeat. With the acceptance of the majority who don’t learn from history. And don’t care to learn.
And that’s how we arrive at this increasingly divisive point in America’s history. Through a system that actually encourages divisiveness. Yeah, you read that right. Democracy encourages a divided nation. Or, at the very least, provides means for division.
Because, like I’ve said many times, it’s crucial to remember how all the self-serving politicians were voted into their positions. Voted. And if you’re a Christian, you should make it a point to examine the Bible to see if voting is God’s preferred method for establishing governments and authorities. (spoiler alert…it’s not)
Even though I’ve mentioned how I’m not a Trump fan, I know what Congress is doing to him is evil and self-serving. And, like all deceitful and wicked people who ever lived, they do it in the name of protecting you and me from bad stuff.
But, ironically, they ARE the bad stuff.
Because they’d rather gain the whole world, as they lose their souls, than trust God and risk losing their temporary authority.
I read this quote from Harry Truman (a Democrat president, believe it or not). It’s from a message he delivered to Congress, August 8, 1950, on the “Internal Security of the United States.” And it shows how far America has fallen in essentially one generation.
“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.”
And if you haven’t gotten the sense that America’s citizens are currently living in fear of the government, you should pay attention to what that government is doing to the current president. Then, ask yourself, “If they can do it to him, am I truly safe?”
They answer is “no” by the way.
Now, they misconstrue what you say.
So, I recommend that, today,
Put your trust and faith in The Way.
