I read somewhere that it’s probably a good thing not to speak carelessly. If memory serves, it had something to do with having to give account for every careless word spoken, not before your or spouse or your kids, but before God on the day of judgment.
Since for the past two weeks there has been enough hyperbole being regurgitated to drown the Statue of Liberty, I wanted to take a breath and objectively assess the speed with which the dismantling of America would be taking place over the next few years. It was never a question of whether they would try; it was always a question of how quickly they would move with some of the more damaging ideas.
If the past two weeks are any indicator, we’re in for a bumpy ride. Although for the sake of my children, I would like to add my voice to the chorus declaring that days of merriment and glee, sunshine, and unicorns are ahead of us, all indications point to the fact that we have reached our apex and are now undeniably on the decline as a nation.
If the powers that be get their way, sooner or later, more people than not in this country will know what rat on a spit tastes like. I know, I know, you think I’m just having fun with words, but look at all the things people said would never happen here, that are. We’re on a greased bobsled going downhill with no rails or way of slowing down.
One of the most disturbing things to have taken place over the past couple of weeks was the insistence that we weren’t killing enough babies in country, so we are now financing the slaughter of the innocent abroad as well. It was a practice that had been halted for the past four years, but no more.
Now, I know Christianity has had a makeover over the last couple of decades. It’s slapped on some lipstick, put on a low cut dress, and did its hair all nice and curly to appeal to the younger generation. But that’s not biblical Christianity, and try as we might, the Word remains stubbornly consistent when it comes to things like shedding innocent blood. No matter how much the newly minted non-binary intersectional pastors insist that baby murder is pleasing in the sight of the Lord, the Book says that any land that sheds innocent blood will be called to account for it.
That’s just one thing of three dozen things that have taken place since this new administration was installed, and as time goes by, we may yet delve into some of them.
This nation and the world as a whole is about to become very volatile. Weakness and uncertainty always invite aggression, and soon those who had for the past four years been restrained due to fear of reprisal will start testing boundaries once more. You don’t have to take my word for it; you’ll see it soon enough with your own eyes.
So what do we do? Simply put, we keep fighting the good fight. We remain the happy warriors we’ve always been, knowing that this life is but a vapor, a fleeting, passing thing like the flickering of a firefly in the dead of night. Eternal life beckons to us all, and how we get there will make no nevermind once we are there. If need be through trials and tribulations, then so be it.
With love in Christ,
