Ferguson: A Single Peacemaker Needed

ML

Matt. 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.”

I am praying for one man or woman to become a peacemaker in Ferguson. There is a lot of hurt and wrongdoing there. However, if the right person decided to make a difference, he or she could change all of that. This person needs to be an African-American. A caucasian doesn’t understand and can’t relate to the feelings stirring in Ferguson. I pray for someone who esteems their country and fellow-man. Someone who is action oriented, progress driven and above all a peacemaker.

Ferguson urgently needs a catalyst, who will take the moral high ground and work towards making life better for those who live in Ferguson. This person elevates the justice system and its processes. While advocating, to increase the voice of the black community, by adding more African-American police officers and government officials. At the same time, creating a better community for everyone living there.

We need to honor the expressed wishes of the Brown family for peace, while maintaining a law-abiding and respectful attitude towards those who protect and serve us. A sense of duty and integrity should be established, to safeguard our fellow mans property and livelihood. We need to preserve authority and the laws meant to protect us and our families. Let’s unite and pray for our leaders, regardless of political affiliation or race. We are all part of the human race.

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

Thankfully, in America we have the right to speak out against oppression and injustices. However, we should do so in a peaceful and civilized manner. Our goal should always be to unify and improve our circumstances and those of our brothers and sisters. Looting and rioting only distances and divides us as a nation. We are blessed to have a multitude of examples of peaceful protesters, who were able to change the course of history.

A God Less America Requires Grace

Why are Christians turning away from the people who need God the most? Jesus’ gravitated towards those everyone else reviled. He chastised religious leaders for the cold hearts and arrogant attitudes they displayed. Today most Christians have the same hypocritical ideology.The hearts of many Americans are broken. A country that was founded on a belief in God, is slowly turning its back on him and the people he loves. The reason God is being taken out of America may be because of the haughty attitudes and beliefs we profess to have.

Let’s take ownership for our part in this. Why do we spew hate and judgement at gays, addicts, etc.? Aren’t we suppose to love our fellow-man? “Judge not, lest you be judged.” It is a verse most of us know by heart. Yet we dismiss it as soon as we assume someone is sinning. We are all sinners! There was only one man who walked this earth, who did so perfectly, Jesus. Let’s reach out to anyone who needs God. I don’t care what they do in the bedroom or in public. John 3:16 New International Version “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” There is no fine print, it says whoever, not everyone but (fill in the blank).

Let’s bring God back to America by acting Christ like. That is where we get the term Christian, it means Christ like. We aren’t the judge, our heavenly Father is. Thank God! I don’t want to be judge, jury, and executioner. He takes care of that. And he does it far better than we do. We tend to magnify others flaws and minimize our own. We need to focus our attention on our own sins. Over and over Jesus said our first priority should be love. Let’s love each other unconditionally. The way our Father loves us, despite ourselves. The way I love my children, I wouldn’t turn against them for any reason. God bless you!

Obama’s Intent to Make Us More Like China

fool america

Despite the recent mid-term elections showing the majority of Americans are disappointed with the way our President and his party are leading our country, our leaders are striking out on another endeavor we oppose. Of course elected officials are supposed to represent the people, and profess to do so during any election. However, President Obama is about to make an announcement that will open up our borders in an unprecedented move to harm the American people. I have been searching out reasons why he would make a move like this, since he is on record as saying that such a move would be detrimental to our beloved country.

Most people believe the move is  being made for the financial gain of the elite. Which makes an awful lot of sense, considering the recent history of the democratic party. We have been on a downward trajectory of separating the wealthy from working class Americans. Burdening the working class with an increase in the cost of living along with stagnate wages and opportunities. While passing ever-increasing measures solely for the benefit of the wealthy. At the same time increasing government control and dependency. So how would open borders benefit our elites?

It occurs to me, we would become more like China. The country we are currently in debt to. China has a population problem, as you know. They do not have a workforce problem, however. Therefore, wages are unbelievable low, making them the perfect place to manufacture cheap goods while paying low wages. By the way, China has an extreme gap between the wealthy and working class. This socialist economic style has pushed China ahead of the game in terms of exporting.

What does Obama’s plan mean for us? With open borders there would be an influx of cheap labor. We have already seen an erosion in our economy with illegal workers. Wages would stay low or because of a rise in available workers decrease. Meanwhile, big business would see an increase in profit. With more workers competing there would be no need for benefits for hard-working Americans. We would be grateful just to have a job. Of course shareholders would smile all the way to the bank as stocks rose. I have experienced firsthand my benefits slipping away to boost the bottom line of large corporations. Get ready for this to be our new norm as Obama pushes us toward a Socialist regime.

Please pray for our country!
