The incident today in Charlottesville, Virgina was horrific and downright uncalled for. On the one hand I don’t see a hate group having civil rights when what they stand for goes against everything that is right and decent that this country is suppose to stand for. Racism continues to raise its ugly head in more detestable and despicable ways everyday. This was just the latest action in an ongoing white supremacist movement that seeks to divide our nation into classes. The REAL TRAGEDY is that we have a president that is really for what they stand for. This is the MAKE AMERICA GREAT MOVEMENT that he campaigned on. So in his small mind its really OK!!!
The body of Christ must look to Jesus during these difficult days ahead . 2 Timothy 3 says”
3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
If you know and understand these things you will do well. Don’t let your own surpressed prejudices overtake you in the days ahead. Always let the love of Christ be your guide and allow the Holy Spirit to control your actions and decisions.
