Over the weekend as cities in America were vandalized, the Lincoln Memorial was defaced with graffiti. The national monument honors Abraham Lincoln, who resided as president during the Civil War, a bloody battle fought over slavery and the treatment of black Americans.
It was at this same spot Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke to a massive peaceful assembly saying,
“We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline,”
Today, the very steps he walked are desecrated with black paint. At least two black officers have been shot and killed, multiple law enforcement shot, countless injured in riots across the country. This is part of the solution?
The large-scale destruction of city blocks across a torn nation wasn’t caused by concerned people who were peacefully protesting the senseless and tragic death of George Floyd. Though I was disheartened and infuriated something like this happened again in one of our major cities, this mayhem has nothing to do with justice.
…Make no mistake: America is under attack – from within!
Racism is not a skin problem, it’s a sin problem! It’s a heart issue and a symptom of a morally bankrupt society that needs God.
…This goes beyond ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and other groups. The left is following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals combined with the Cloward-Piven Strategy to overwhelm the system of free market capitalism and representative government in America.
These two influential, Marxist political philosophies have helped shape the direction of our nation over the past 50-plus years and have helped bring our nation to the precipice of economic and moral destruction.
…Keeping it all in perspective, the Bible warns us that lawlessness would increase as the love of many grows cold. Though evil abounds and always will, we are not to conform to the world, but overcome evil with good. Sin is the problem, Jesus is the answer. Paul wrote this to the church in Galatia about those who believe and accepted God’s offer of forgiveness:
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus… There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)
That is the only distinction we need draw. We recognize people as either saved or unsaved; spiritually alive or dead to sin. What side are you on?
