We used to speak kindly, have manners, were courteous to one another, and honor those who served our country in uniform. A man stood by his word, no paper contract needed, a promise was a promise; we were honorable compassionate people. Today? Look at the current level of hate and violence from those so-called peaceful “can’t we all just get along” progressives over our recent presidential election. Did conservatives act that way in the previous two presidential elections? No, they did not! What has happened to us?
I think it is the removal of Jesus and the attack on Christianity from our culture. The minority has succeeded to ruining our country at a cost born by the majority; we have lost our foundations…the America Tree has no roots anymore! With no roots, we have no nourishment getting to our branches; with no nourishment, our branches produce bad fruit or no fruit at all.
“For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:43-45 ESV)
The ugly hateful actions of the Phelps family church out of Kansas has been in the news for some time. Chances are good that you have an opinion on their sick events. Clearly, this so-called church is not following the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Our culture would say that they have a right to say what they wish…okay, maybe so; but to have a right to do something doesn’t mean you HAVE TO DO IT if the action lacks decency. Relativism (where our culture currently stands) says everybody has a right to say whatever they want, no matter how hurtful. Relativism says that everybody has a right to think whatever they want and call it “truth”. No! There is indeed such a thing as “absolute truth”…God’s truth! Of course, when you remove God from the equation, you conveniently take away all Real Truth, decency barriers fall away, and you are free to now push your liberal agendas any direction you wish to go. Greed and power take over decency!
