4-19-21 Party Picks

How did two losers like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris rise to the level of president and vice president of the United States? Well, for one thing they did so by dishonest means. A blatantly biased big tech, big business, and big media, plus unverified mass mail-in voting being the main reasons.

When I call them losers, I’m referring to their own runs for president. Prior to 2020, Joe Biden had 2 failed attempts as a presidential candidate. His big break came when Obama picked him for VP. Obama needed a moderate with lots of experience who would not outshine him. Biden was the perfect choice. He then used that fame to successfully run for president.

Kamala Harris, though much younger, similarly failed in her own run for president. As I recall, she dropped out before the first primary with less than 2% of the vote. Gender and color are more important than qualification to Joe Biden. He foolishly committed to picking a woman (preferably of color) as a running mate and Kamala Harris was the best he could do. That’s how we ended up with two losers running the country. They were party picks, not the people’s choice, unlike Donald Trump who won the nomination on his own. He was clearly never the choice of party leaders.

I find very little to commend in our current president. He claimed to be a moderate that would unite and heal the nation. That was a lie. He has abandoned every moderate policy he ever had in favor of the radical left. Some think it’s senility, but I don’t. He’s just an old, corrupt, self-serving politician without core values.

The next two years are going to be scary. “Trump hate” seems to be the only policy these people have, and we’re beginning to see the fruit of their folly. But hold on; they will lose big in next year’s mid-term election, and 2024 should be real interesting.

4-12-21 The Kids

I heard Nancy Pelosi say the other day, “It’s about the kids.” Well, I don’t think the left-wing policies of her party are doing the kids any good.

The coronavirus shutdowns promoted by the Democrats have done incalculable damage to our young people. Children are at no greater risk for this virus than for the common flu. One angry parent told his school board, “Figure it out!” The evidence now shows that there’s little difference between states that shut down and states that didn’t. Will the left ever admit they were wrong?

Democrats are also pushing this divisive critical race theory. It’s nothing but Marxist propaganda, teaching our young people to hate white, Christian America. That needs to stop. Taxpayers should have a say in what’s being taught to our children, since we pay for it.

Democrats also promote transgenderism, the misguided notion that you can change your sex. In some liberal states, the bodies of healthy minors can be mutilated without parental consent. That’s nothing but child abuse. The worst kind of abuse is child abuse.

Finally, Democrats and some Republicans are saddling our children with a crushing load of national debt. Imagine a parent, instead of leaving an inheritance, leaving a million dollars of debt for his children to pay off. That would be extremely irresponsible, but that’s exactly what we’re doing to our children and grandchildren.

Unless these and other errors can be corrected, the hope for a life of freedom and prosperity for the next generation will be greatly diminished.

4-5-21 Worth It

I have sometimes heard it argued that even if I knew that Christianity wasn’t true I would still choose to be a Christian because of the benefits of living a Christian life.

Well, I’m not sure I agree, and I know the apostle Paul doesn’t. He wrote in I Cor. 15, that great resurrection chapter, verse 19, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.” He seals the argument in verse 32, “If the dead do not rise, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” In other words, why suffer loss for the sake of Christ if there’s no eternal gain (resurrection)? You would be wiser to just live (like the world does) for the pleasures of sin for a season, if a season is all there is.

Now, the hypothetical argument is flawed because the reason we experience such blessings in the Christian life (love, joy, peace, etc) is because it is true. If Jesus were simply making false claims there would be no Holy Spirit to bring about this awesome change in our lives through regeneration.

It appears that a fresh wave of persecution is coming for Christians in America. Will we stand true to the Lord and His Word? Is it worth it to suffer the loss of reputation, job, and freedom? I would argue that it is, precisely because He is risen, He is Lord, and He is worthy. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

3-29-21 No Confusion

For those of us who believe in the absolute inspiration and authority of Scripture, there’s no confusion about gender. Genesis 2:18-25 describes the creation of Adam and Eve, and Jesus affirmed monogamy in Matthew 19:4-5, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?”

The Bible further states (James 3:15-16) that Satan is the author of confusion, and he’s obviously doing some of his best work today with the LGBTQ movement. He has cleverly turned this alphabet of sexual disorders into a civil rights issue, and if you dare object, you’re a hateful bigot.

Since when is sharing Biblical truth about sin and salvation a hateful thing? I would argue that it’s the most loving thing you can do. Affirming someone in their sinful behavior is not. It’s a counterfeit love, with dire consequences.

If you will only look into the Scriptures with the Holy Spirit’s help, you will, as Jesus said in John 8:32, “know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Free to know and love God and keep his commandments. You will no longer be deceived by the world, the flesh, and the Devil. You can then join in the battle for Truth on God’s side, win others, suffer persecution for righteousness sake, and experience great joy.

It makes me want to sing, “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.”

3-22-21 Royal Pain

I’m not a big royal watcher, but you can’t miss the hullabaloo over the Meghan and Harry interview with Oprah. It’s hard for us commoners to feel sorry for those of such wealth and privilege, but they do have their burdens to bear.

The British Royal Family is not unlike any other family with a mix of good and bad behavior and tragedy. The problem is that everything is magnified by the media. I think the whole conflict is overblown.

If Harry and Meghan want to live an American lifestyle over a British Royal lifestyle, fine; let them. It’s completely understandable. It’s doubtful that Prince Harry or his descendants will ever ascend to the throne with his father and brother ahead of him.

I was disappointed to hear Meghan Markle play the race card against the royal family in the interview. That was unfair. We don’t know who said it or the context in which it was said. The comment about skin color may have been completely innocent. The gene pool mix is fun because you never know what you’re going to get. A little color in the royal family would be a good thing.

There are examples of racism in America, but the left is trying to make the exception the rule. Don’t buy it. It will only trap you in a victim mentality. Instead you ought to take full advantage of the wonderful opportunities out there for everyone, especially minorities, to be successful, and if you encounter a few jerks along the way just laugh them off.
