Yes it is true that we are in the midst of a highly contested and very tight election. But current events and global unrest should trump the day.
For way too long we have allowed the founding principles of our nation, biblical principles, instructions and Godly wisdom to suffer abuse, correction and even abandonment.
In all humility and fairness, she has seldom been perfect and above reproach, but on the whole, she has served as a beacon of hope, fairness and justice for many a nation in their time of need. And she must rise again in the strength of her people to lead with integrity, honor and righteousness.
Political correctness, diluted half-truths and blatant misrepresentations have infiltrated our communications channels; once trusted journalist in search for the truth. Public reason, sound debate and discernment staggers about, shell shocked and tone deaf, amidst the barrage of incoming and conflicting messages.
Reason, common sense and traits of character worthy of praise and emulation have been beaten into shapes that no longer represent the essence of their former selves. In the process, Godly wisdom and spiritual insights have been watered down in such a way as to dilute the very essence of wisdom, knowledge and discernment.
Gone are the inspiring speeches of leaders past whose spoken words proved evident that they had spent time in the presence of God. Now more than ever before in our nations history it is critical that we all place less attention to our political affiliations and rally around fundamental principles of decision making.
Now is the time to once again consider the teachings and lessons of days gone by to strengthen our understanding of God’s perfect plan and to work together towards fulfilling His purpose.
Today, we who call this nation home, who believe she should stand resolute in liberty and for freedom around the global - call back the presence of God and the wisdom of His Word to rule once again in the hearts and minds of those with whom we have entrusted this nation.
Not only for this nations survival and future prosperity, but also, for the many nations of the world that look to us for help, support, guidance and leadership.
It is way past time for all people of faith – whose God is known as Love and whose actions and teachings profess love over hostile violence and division – to rise up and demand that truth be told and lies be exposed.
