Who Are We?

          Nigger, spic, kike, honky, fag, wop, mick, wasp, kraut, jap, chink, gook, - let’s see, did I leave anyone out?  I wouldn’t want to offend anyone by omission.  I have known people who seem to hate everyone. “Prejudice is a distinction we make about people that God doesn’t make.”[1]  I can truly say that after having lived for sixty eight years, and having been exposed to this kind of hate and even worse, I truly don’t hate anybody.  Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight; Jesus loves the little children of the world.”[2]  If you, as I do, believe that the Bible is the word of the one true and living God, you would also know that we are all of one bloodline.  We are all the same family regardless of our differences.  Kind of gives you a different perspective on discrimination, doesn’t it?

          Since we are all basically the same, our only real differences are our ideas.  There are those that I disagree with and am disappointed with.  Those who tell lies and make statements and/or decisions which affect my life and that of my family, without knowing or caring what they are doing, anger me.  There are those that will stand for the Bible and our nation the way it was founded, and those that would tear down the nation and its relationship with God that most of us are so fond of.  Some people are too lazy to study so they are easily led.  “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”[3]  Our nation is in the process of perishing due to many peoples lack of knowledge concerning the founding of the country. Throughout history, there have been those, because of greed and hunger for power that seek to control the lives of others.   Our country has never been free of these people, which is why for so long they have been plotting in the background.  Only recently have they gained the powerful positions in such abundance.  I am content in the belief system I have.  I believe in God, family and country in that order. I am absolutely convinced that the Bible is true because it was written under the influence of the Holy Spirit.  Some people say it is not trustworthy because it was written by men.  These people seem to have no real concept of the Holy Spirit and if I remember correctly, Jesus was a man when He was here.

          Many people need to determine the basis of their unbelief.  Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”[4]  The farther away we get from God, the worse off we are.  "If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under."[5]  “’In God We Trust’ is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan.  We adopted this motto because Christian men and women - on Christian principles - founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.”[6]

          When I was a child, I was taught that curse words were used by people who didn’t know how to properly express themselves.  Prejudicial words as far as I am concerned, are in the same category as curse words.  Although I still find myself falling into this category at times, it still offends my heart.  What I find truly offensive are those people who purposely and maliciously accuse someone of being a racist for political purposes.  This is a common tactic of the progressive movement.  ‘White boy’ was shouted by a protester during a speech by Michael Johns at a Tea Party meeting.  As far as I know, there has only been one person beaten up at a tea party meeting.  A black Tea Party attendee was attacked and beaten by SEIU[7] thugs using the ‘N’ word because he was handing out free flags.  “I have heard over and over again that the law abiding members of the Tea Party movement are racist and hate mongers.  The progressives have done everything they can to discredit this movement within the parameters of Saul Alinsky's ‘Rules for Radicals,’ by clothing health care reform "with moral garments."  If the Tea Party movement is racist then why can't the accusers provide audio or video substantiating this claim?”[8]

          If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you have to act.  Arm yourself because that is what you will have to do spiritually; if you are on the side of truth, justice and the American way.  Put on the full armor of God.  Carry the sword of the Spirit in your heart.  Our best political weapon is the vote.  “The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man

for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.”[9]  “Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.”[10]  “If America is to survive, we must elect more God-centered men and women to public office, individuals who will seek divine guidance in the affairs of state.”[11]  This was the thinking of the founding fathers.

          Only if we are aware of whom we are, will we set foot in the right direction to restore this country to its rightful place in the world.  Study, doubt everything you hear or read until you have verified its truthfulness.  Once you are armed with the confidence of your convictions, get out there and vote.
