Kindness being shown throughout
To the editor:
My intent in writing this letter was to commend those who have shown exceeding kindness to needy neighbors during this mandated lockdown due to COVID-19.
However, our country only sinks into deeper levels of depravity, specifically, rioting. Whatever the reason, it is merely an excuse to bring America down. The latest check indicates the fascist groups are succeeding. These anti-American socialist workers of iniquity are well organized. No normal person innocently carries a Molotov cocktail in the back pocket.
That SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule lifted off and docked with the International Space Station on 31 May seems not to matter.
We are the strongest, most powerful nation on earth. Able to repel any foreign invading force, America now appears helpless to prevent civil war and insurrection from ripping our country apart from the inside.
This insurgency is nothing new. When America was merely 50 years old, Abraham Lincoln dealt with mob violence and talked of how America could only be destroyed by a coup from the inside.
How can America overcome the hatred that has been feverishly festering ever since Hillary lost the 2016 election? But keep in mind: The national problems are moral and spiritual, not political.
Horace Greeley remarked, “It is impossible to enslave mentally and socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.”
Sadly, no conservative in power advocates righteousness from a Biblical perspective, including our President. Still, God may be using him to expose the out of control corruption in Washington DC.
America right now is simmering in restrained anger but it will soon reach the boiling point again. Anarchists’ god is power and control.
You, dear reader, need to seek the God of the Bible. In his great love for his creation, God sent his only Son to redeem you and me. While we were yet sinners, Jesus freely sacrificed himself for us on a cruel cross.
Delve into the Holy Scriptures and obey God. When Jesus prayed for His disciples to God the Father, He said in John 17:3, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Do you know Jesus as Savior and Lord? He is how you find forgiveness, peace, and joy. Don’t buy into race hatred. We’re all one race, made in God’s image, accountable as individuals.
