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!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
