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

Published

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.

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!

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…

In a statement, the office said that the aspiring rapper’s cause of death was not yet determined. “Cause of death has not been determined,” the office said in its statement. “Toby was traveling back from Canada and did not get home to be with his family until after midnight last night so there is no statement. We just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss.” TobyMac — real name Kevin Michael McKeehan — was touring in Canada when he received the news of his son’s untimely death. Last year, TobyMac released a song called, “Scars, dedicating it to his first-born son. The Christian artist posted a video where he explained the meaning of the song saying it was intended to provide encouragement and support for parents who sometimes “insulate [hardships] from the ones we love, our children.” “So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy,” TobyMac explained. “I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” Here’s a few lyrics from the song that illustrated what the Christian rapper said: When life cuts so deep Try and remember You are not alone We’ve all been there Scars come with livin’ You are not alone We’ve all been there So lift your head, lift your head Lift your head to where your help comes from Yeah,…
