Burnt Out on All the Hate and Division? There’s A Simple Antidote.

Published

on

It’s hard not to fear for our nation right now.

Ironically, even if you fully support Trump’s policies and believe they’re the right thing for the nation, the left is so hysterically opposed to everything he says and does, and increasingly hateful towards those who support him, that it can sometimes cancel out all the gratification of a pro-American, small-government, conservative administration.

While passionate clashes between ideological opponents is nothing new to our young nation, many alive today can’t remember a time when Americans were so greatly divided between what appear to be irreconcilable differences, and it’s definitely hard to ignore.

At the very least, it’s exhausting.

If you’re feeling tired of all the chaos, hatred, and division, commentator Billy Hallowell has a simple answer, an antidote to everything plaguing our nation that we definitely need way more of.

Jesus.

“There are nine key words in the Bible that could fix our personal and cultural conundrum. Ironically, our culture keeps ignoring these simple solutions,” he says.

“Chaos. Confusion. Anger. Bitterness. Division. We’re experiencing some truly painful paradigms in the modern era,” he explains.

“These emotions and realities are, of course, nothing new and have ebbed and flowed in their intensity and cultural presence throughout human history. Meanwhile, the solutions have actually remained entirely constant.”

“The Bible is filled with transformative information that, when properly applied to individuals’ lives, changes not only hearts, but also collective societies, as the scriptures serve as an essential guiding light.”

Preach it!

So what are these nine words we need to pour all over our culture right now?

No matter what, we can always rest on these powerful words from the book of Galatians, which tell us “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

Whatever is going on around us, nothing is stopping us from displaying the fruit of His Spirit and allowing His healing power to take shape in the lives of those we impact.

Save conservative media!

Mississippi Governor Delivers Message Condemning The Burning Of Church That Opposed COVID-19 Restrictions

Published

on

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves released a statement on Thursday condemning the burning of a church that had opposed the restrictions put in place concerning the spread of the coronavirus. The church had filed a lawsuit against the state for its prohibition on large gatherings. Reeves took to Twitter and stated that he was both “heartbroken and furious” with the shameful action that was taken against the church. “What’s this pandemic doing to us?” he asked in his post. “We need prayer for this country.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The church, First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, burned to the ground sometime early Wednesday morning, according to police. Grafitti was found in the parking lot reading, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.” The burning is being investigated as arson. “We’re in a time where I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a growing hostility toward churches, across the board,” Thomas More Society senior counsel and lawyer for the church Stephen Crampton told Fox News. “And now, here are churches like First Pentecostal that are sort of stirring up the waters by being outspoken and somewhat firm about seeking to protect their constitutional rights.” The church had filed a lawsuit back in April after the pastor of the congregation was given a ticket for holding a drive-in service on Easter, which happens to be one of the most important holidays for Christians, who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead on that day. This belief is the foundation of the Christian faith and it is shameful to not be able to celebrate it together with other believers. Especially when this church was willing to compromise and simply worship from their vehicles and maintain social distancing guidelines. A district attorney later ruled in favor…

Additional California Churches And Sheriffs Join In Defiance Of State, Local Orders

Published

on

Phase 2 of California’s plan to reopen officially kicked off on Friday, but that part of the plan still didn’t allow for the opening of houses of worship for in-person services, something that clearly violates the First Amendment rights of the citizens of the state. While Gov. Gavin Newsom has done his best to strike at the heart of the Constitution by instituting strict stay-at-home orders in the name of safety and security, true patriots have stood up and said enough is enough. Several thousand church leaders in California have stated that they are now planning to reopen for services regardless of what Newsom says about it. They are joined in their defiance by a long list of sheriffs who are actually taking up the mantle to defend the Constitution. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: California Church United, a network of 3,000 California churches, representing 2.5 million members, announced it plans to open May 31, instead of waiting until the state implements phase 3, which includes allowing modified reopening of houses of worship. Many churches are reopening nationwide on May 31, a date specifically chosen because it falls on the Day of Pentecost, a significant date on the Christian calendar. Some plan to open Sunday, May 10. “Our churches are part of the answer, not part of the problem,” Danny Carroll, senior pastor at Water of Life Community Church, said at a news conference held at the Water of Life mega church in Fontana, Calif. “We’re an essential part of this whole journey and we’ve been bypassed … kicked to the curb and deemed nonessential,” Carroll said. Gov. Newsom has acknowledged the work put forth by folks in various faith communities in helping to care for the homeless and others who are in need during the crisis in a press…
