He tells it like it is and even though he’s not the average politician, he’s followed by those who have held their anger with the government within. They yearn for new leadership without the ties to an overly corrupt body of administrators. Still he has been involved in some questionable ventures and comes off as the neighborhood bully.
She screams for assistance for the poor and needy, yet her lies have jaded her over the past administration. She continues to be investigated by the FBI and still is allowed to run for president of the United States. Her husband’s administration was filled with lies and scandal. Are we in for more of the same?
Our streets are filled with young people who haven’t had the benefit of learning how to respect authority , but they’re given more opportunities than the average guy. They don’t respect parents, teachers, law enforcement, fellow men – nobody, because they have never been taught. Now the protectors of the people have become the criminals.
Our classrooms are becoming unmanageable, because teachers’ hands are tied. They’re not allowed to discipline, because these youngsters’ feelings will be hurt. When parents are confronted about bad behavior, they defend the child and say it was the teacher’s fault. Instead of turning to their family for encouragement, they’re being swept up by gangs or recruited by terrorists.
Terrorists roam in every part of the world. Their insidious desire to be of value to anyone turns them into walking time bombs – hoping to go to heaven for the sake of their god. They have invaded our neighborhoods, our schools, our workplace and our communities. Terror is alive and well everywhere..
Churches fall away from the truth of God’s inspired Word – the Bible – and turn to “feel good” churches that refuse to mention the word sin. The devil loves to get into our churches and do his dirty work.
We are becoming a nation of political correctness and tolerance for just about any kind of behavior. In an effort to be kind, we are giving up our own rights.
I am a sinner. I know that I was born a sinner. I will continue to sin against God until I take my last breath. I may look like any other nice, old lady, but I get angry. I struggle over the state of our world. I hate it when I hear about abortion and the possibility of ending life of those who prefer to die. My temper flares when I see others being taken advantage of. I get out of control when I see or hear about children being abused in any way. I long for the day of judgment, but I still fear the result, because I am a sinner.
A while back there was new guy in town who captivated his audience. He was the current rock star – yet truly politically correct – willing to do anything for his fellow man. The people adored him, yet only a few days after they honored him with a parade, they were shouting insults at him, spitting on him, throwing rocks at him.
When we get wrapped up in our own problems – when the world seems like it’s got to end right now – when anger and rage and hate fill every corner of our existence – when we feel like there’s no hope – an innocent, willing servant comes to us. His mission was to buy us back – to save and forgive us from all shame and guilt – to wash us clean so that God would finally accept us as His children.
This is our only hope in times like this. God loves us in spite of our anger, hate and rage and He has everything under control. Even the yucky stuff!
For further comfort read Psalm 91.
