Perhaps the real question is, will there be a healing of America after this horrifying presidential election is over. These days, I always feel like the purveyor of bad news. Doom & gloom!! It just might be too late.
We are in the midst of an election, that contests the personalities, personas, and massive egos of the two worst candidates for the Office of The Presidency, in the history of our nation. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and most of the others are, to use a worn out phrase, “rolling over in their graves” as I write this. Just the same, one will be president when the dust settles. I have made my decision, based on the “lesser of two evils” concept.
An America that is so ideologically split, where right is wrong and wrong is right, where heroes are culprits, and demons are heroes, has little chance to “kiss and make up” when the blood stops flowing. We live and work side by side, we act like all is well, but we are really Martians and Saturn dwellers. Neither candidate will promote healing, but even if they did, we wouldn’t stand for it.
As a nation, over the past 50 years, we have learned to worship hell, and curse Heaven, and we are split in the middle as to which is which. In many cases, both the political left and the right, has abolished God in favor of man. We are currently experiencing the results of that decision.
Healing as a nation, might not be in the cards for us. Maybe this time the split, the divorce if you will, is permanent.
The only thing I would wish, is that everybody (me too), would come to their philosophy honestly, rather than it be born of selfishness, or planted by so-called leaders of either movement, or worst of all, absorbed from a media that is so one-sided in its (often lies) news, as to be like a paid member of one party. Don’t be a follower, be a thinker. Come to your own conclusions. The crowd is a lonely place.
For me and some of you, we are also followers, but not of man. God has all the answers, as politically incorrect as that is to say. He is The Provider of Healing. If it is too late to heal as a nation, then heal personally instead.
4. I sought the Lord, and He Heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5. They looked unto Him, and were lightened; and their faces were not ashamed.
I think occasionally, we need to look at the circumstances that we all are stuck in. Just the same, in my next political article I will return to the hard facts.
God Bless, Wayne
