Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: It has been painful to watch the effects of several decades of reprogramming generations of American citizens to believe that just because something offends you, it must be eradicated or removed. Yet we are witnessing this very thing. The entitlement mentality to not be offended, to have free college, abortion on demand, to not have their feelings hurt to to determine one’s sex by the mood or mode one gets up with in the morning has driven our society to the edge of uncertainty. This has been the same in South-Africa!!
Despite the fact that only a few hundred white nationalist protesters (who held a permit) were going to rally in Charlottesville to exercise their free speech guarantee (guaranteed by our Constitution, despite its despicable message), Antifa and assorted alt-left protesters swarmed the area in a counter-protest, leading to a violent confrontation. In this wake, large cities and small ‘burbs are now facing the very real problem of a few activists raising cane and demanding that we erase every aspect they unilaterally have decided is offensive and unworthy to be part of the very history of our country.
Emerson once said “every history should be written in a wisdom which divined the range of our affinities and looked at facts as symbols. I am ashamed to see what a shallow village tale our so-called History is”.
We cannot learn from our history, with both its bright and dark moments, if that history is erased because people have worked themselves into a frenzy claiming to be “offended” by it. Regardless of our persuasions, those events are lessons to be learned so that we can remember the mistakes as we strive to become better. In the final evaluation, this obsession with the “offensive” is really just a strawman argument designed to recondition weak minds who cannot discern truth from fantasy.
At this rate, Jesus words will be at the front and center of the vernacular ringing with unfettered truth when He said:
“21 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rise against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone on account of My name, but the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next. *Truly I tell you, you will not reach all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.…” ~ Matthew 10:21-23~
We encourage you to stand strong…all these events are just signs and part of the Convergence of Events that must happen before Christ returns.
