A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

TL A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART (23)SOCIALISMLEARN ABOUT SOCIALISM

I’m old enough to remember when the words socialism and communism were regarded as evil in the United states.  The freedoms and capitalism our country was founded on were to be guarded and protected above everything else.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb.  – Benjamin Franklin

Since I don’t have children, I’m not up to speed on what is being taught in the school system, but it’s my suspicion that history lessons are not at the top of the list…  am I right?  A couple of encounters with the youth of Wichita, Kansas has shown me that they are not well-rounded in their knowledge of history.  People, if we don’t know where we came from and learn from past mistakes – we are surely bound to repeat them!

The socialist candidate makes it all sound so appealing, doesn’t he?  He’s going to GIVE some folks everything at no cost – well, isn’t that special???  Guess what…  A college education will still cost somebody – do they care about that?  Somebody’s taxes will go sky-high through the roof to GIVE others everything for free.  Does that matter?  Raising taxes by as much as 98% which is just crazy…  to GIVE a college education to another.

There is something in the capitalist world that accomplishes the same thing – they’re called SCHOLARSHIPS.  There are scholarships by the truckload that yes, have to be EARNED, but if you want a healthy chunk of your college education paid for – that’s possible in a capitalist nation!  No, nobody is going to give you a free lunch – because as my mother always told me – there’s no such thing as a FREE lunch.  Somebody is going to pay for the lunch – please remember that.

DIE FOR YOU

I love America, I love my freedom AND I want to uphold our precious CONSTITUTION.  Never in the history of this country has there been a socialist running for president.  I don’t want to feel the Bern…  our country would soon feel the burn from the Bern.  The insane part is that he’s not even a registered democrat…  huh???  How does that happen???

Look, I’m just asking that you have all the facts about Socialism before you vote.  As always, it’s my prayer that we are less red, less blue – and blend into a united purple as we kneel in prayer before our GOD to seek His face and turn from our wicked ways – only then will our sin-sick nation be supernaturally healed.

PRAYER FOR AMERICABe an informed voter.  Please read about the practice of SOCIALISM in other countries and pray in these last days before the election.  🙂

2 CHRONICLES 7:14 ON 7/14

TL 2 CHRONICLES 7 14 ON 7 14

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  – 2 Chronicles 7:14

The Bible is known as Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (B.I.B.L.E.), and of all the instructions in there, these are, in my opinion, the most important ones of all.  In America, we have become the most torn, divided, weak, ungodly nation.  We need to humble ourselves before God and pray with humble hearts and spirits, asking forgiveness for wrong attitudes, seeking His answers.  He promises to heal our land…  but there’s something we have to do first.

AMERICA'S IN HIS HAND

So often we are tempted to seek answers from other sources.  Just today I watched an advertisement on television for physic readings.  Of course, they cost $1 per minute, but promise that all your answers will be revealed to you in the reading.

We must seek answers for ourselves and our nation from a higher being – God!  We don’t need to speak with people who read stars – but to God who made them!  Putting all pride aside, humbly bow before the heavenly Father with no hidden agenda – but a genuine desire for His wisdom for our future.  Humility is something you can fake before other people, but remember, it’s not something that you can fake in front of God.  He already knows your heart before you begin to pray.

Do Americans even admit to wrongdoing anymore?  Do we feel any degree of shame?  Do we say the word SIN?  Is everything just a mistake… an OOPS – as we half-heartedly laugh it off?  Is God laughing at sin?  I don’t think so.

There’s a reward for faithfulness…  He will HEAL our Land!  Does it need healed?  Do we understand that if we do this – He will do that?  Do we care?  Does it matter?  Hello…  is this thing on?

Here’s what trips us up…  TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS…  we don’t WANT to do that because we’re having too much fun!  There’s even debate among Christians as to what IS considered sinful these days!  Are there consequences to sin?  You have to ask?  Look around you.  Is it easy to walk the straight and narrow?  Of course it isn’t.  Is it worth trying?  Well…  yeah.  The thing is, we have a loving and kind heavenly Father who will forgive our SIN in Jesus’ Name.  Every time we slip – He will forgive us – but we need to humble ourselves before Him and ask.

OK – so we have our B.I.B.L.E. and we’ve read the instructions to ensure that America gets healed by God – His promise to us.  What are we waiting for?   🙂
