THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD
We may not want to acknowledge or admit it, but we are
all sinners saved by God's grace! However, being under
grace does not give us a "license to sin!"
Yes, we have all been like sheep and have gone astray,
each of us to our own way! However, we have a loving
Savior who is able to "Save Us and Change Us!"
We become new creatures in Him and the old man has to die,
and that is the purpose of our baptism! Our hearts must be searched regularly so that we may repent, asking God to forgive us and to help us turn from ALL our sin!
AMERICA HAS BLOOD ON HER HANDS
America has murdered "more than 60 million babies legally" since 1973. Christian believers know that abortion is wrong, but because they know that doing something to stop it will "involve sacrifices" they would rather not make, they don't really make an effort to learn more about it.
While it is no secret that "Extreme Radical Feminists" continue to promote and justify their profound abortion agenda all across the globe. Organizations and our own government officials alike are very active in this "pro-abortion" campaign.
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGALIZED
The history of same-sex marriage in the United States dates from the early 1970's, when the first lawsuits seeking legal recognition of same-sex relationships brought the question of civil marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples to public attention though they proved unsuccessful.
On June 26, 2015, the "U.S. Supreme Court struck down ALL bans on same-sex marriage," legalized it in all fifty states, and required states to honor out-of-state same-sex marriage licenses in the case of Obergefell -vs- Hodges.
AMERICA IS DISGRACED
WASHINGTON - CNN: One week after the landmark Supreme Court ruling that allows same-sex couples to marry, the "White House was illuminated in rainbow colors for the evening," a nod to the achievement of the "Gay Rights Movement!"
Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to then President Barack Obama, also tweeted that the rainbow illumination reflects "what we always knew in our hearts."
WASHINGTON - CNN: During the Obama administration, the LGBTQ community saw an unprecedented expansion of rights and discrimination protections. Hate Crimes Prevention Act was passed in 2009, (Aren't All Crimes Hateful?) gay people were permitted to serve openly in the military, (who really wants to know) and in 2014 an executive order banned companies that do federal work from discriminating against LGBTQ workers, among other milestones.
NO TRUER COLORS
President Obama said, "I didn't have the chance to comment on how good the White House looked in rainbow colors... to see people gathered in the evening on a beautiful summer night an to feel whole and feel accepted and to feel they had a right to love, that was pretty cool. That was a good thing."
While, his wife Michelle Obama and her daughter Malia, then 16, snuck out of the White House that night to join in the celebration and fun, with a size-able crowd outside of the White House!
The crime rate in many major American states such as, Chicago, Oregon, New York, and California is "through the roof!"
Violent crimes can be described in many different ways,
but it usually included murder, robbery, assault,
George P. Floyd Jr, was an African-American man killed during an arrest on May 25th, after a store clerk alleged that he gave him a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. Floyd had lost his security job during the Covid-19 pandemic in Minneapolis.
VIOLENT CRIME CONTINUES
Nightly protests passed their 100th day this week. Over the course of nearly three months, crowd sizes have at times exceeded 10,000 people and on other occasions been fewer than 100.
Between May 29 and August 27th, the Portland Police Bureau declared 23 riots and 22 unlawful assemblies, that doesn't include nights that started as unlawful assemblies and were later declared as riots.
WE ALL HAVE SINNED
It is certainly the truth, that we are all guilty before God. We have all sinned, and have short of God's glory. The entire race of mankind lies under the stain of original corruption, and every particular person stands charged with many substantial wrongdoings, or our sins.
We have all gone astray from God our rightful owner, alienated ourselves from Him, from the ends... He designed us to move towards the ways that He appointed us to move in. Still, we
are apt to wander, like true sheep, when they have gone astray, to find the way home again.
It's time to repent and return to our Lord and Savior
