America at risk…


HOW DO WE UNITE A DIVIDED NATION?

img_1348Saturday, February 11, 2016 in the Chattanooga Times Free Press op-ed section there were opposing opinions on the same subject.

Clarence Page wrote “‘Fake News?’Look Whose Talking.” Cal Thomas wroteMajor Media Remain In Denial.

These men are miles apart on the political spectrum. They are looking at “their” side and making a case about what they believe are lies told to Americans.

There are two biblical truths I think Americans should consider:

  • A house divided against itself cannot stand.
  • Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.

In the op-eds, Mr. Page complained because of what he believes are lies told by President Trump. Mr. Thomas complained because the press ignored the lies of the previous administration and failed to realize that this very behavior led to their stunning loses in 2016. 

I understand how these men feel! Both make some valid points, but if we do not get beyond this place, the Bible teaches that we will crumble as a nation. So where do we go from here? How do we stop quarreling and become peacemakers? We would all benefit from doing just that and perhaps save our nation…
