Birds of a feather flock together: racists, terrorists, patriots, genocidal maniacs, suicidal murderers, guntoting loose mouths and idolaters. That is how nations are made. It is the pattern that explains tribal and religious beliefs and fantasies. Demonic forces are at work in the phenomenal growth in idleness, wealth, cold hearts, and political mayhem.
Magically making the grade
The truth about my country and the United States which we are slow to recognize and wrestle with is that skeletons emerging from the closets and multiplying through illegitimate alliances. Church and state, God and country, law (debt) and grace, are great talking points that cannot be spun into greatness.
National greatness promised to Abraham
We do not consent to theft, bigotry, nationalism, extrajudicial killings, oppression of resident foreigners, or xenophobia because the practices secure jobs for our loved ones. The bigots in government – in Canada and the United States – may not be statistically the majority but the media silence should not blind us to the fact that every fourth person will lie and steal, peek into your business without a cause.
The bigot in the White House is a semi-literate charlatan who thinks that greatness comes with winning elections. If we wanted proof that politics will never be spiritually alligned look no further than our own nations. Then we all have the Bible with uncontroverted evidence of the greatest collection of laws and promises ending in catastrophe.
Keep prioritizing and serving yourself and wither like grass
When was America great?
Many people in North America have trouble separating reality from virtualization. A nation is not great because of the goals it sets. People are not Christian because they go to church, and leaders who do not read the instruction manual are useless scarecrows. The church has a different standard of greatness. Service!
Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy.
