At some point, we must offend.

There are reasons the original 12 were so bold.  There are reasons they preached letting the chips fall where they may.  They understood that at some point, they must offend.  They disregarded their personal safety—and for good reasons.  Those reasons escape today’s motivational-speaker-preachers who live not to offend.  They just don’t get it.

At some point, we must offend

By Mario Murillo

There are reasons the original 12 were so bold.  There are reasons they preached letting the chips fall where they may.  They understood that at some point, they must offend.  They disregarded their personal safety—and for good reasons.  Those reasons escape today’s motivational-speaker-preachers who live not to offend.  They just don’t get it.  Here is how A.W. Tozer described the true preacher, “they serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Before some lazy reader jumps to a wrong conclusion let me say—we are not to try to offend.  We are not to give offense.  My point is that leaving truth out to avoid offending is a disaster—when it is wildly successful, it is an even greater disaster.  Spurgeon said, “It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap its hands and shout ‘Well done’ to a Christian man.”

It is a great evil when congregations reward you, yea enrich you, and raise you to superstar status because you keep God’s rightful demands off them.

When you take aim at a vastly successful far-flung enterprise, you are easily rejected because how can you deny its effectiveness?  How can you keep from sounding petty and jealous?

The reason it is hard to see why it is valid to criticize attraction churches is because we don’t know what might have been.  We don’t know how America would look like today had we obeyed the Holy Spirit instead of the laws of marketing.

They did not offend and they also did not stop the moral avalanche.  On their watch, we lost marriage—we lost millions of unborn—we lost so much that we cannot even recognize America.  And most ironically, after all the efforts to avoid offending, the public hates the church more than ever.

Here are the reasons we must offend:

Preaching the entire Gospel releases power. 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Romans 1: 16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…”

Why is the phrase power of God in two verses that deal with the offense of the Gospel?  Why would Paul even use the qualifier “I am not ashamed?”  Because, as a top-flight intellectual, he was keenly aware of the parts of the Gospel that tweak the human brain, and offend “proper society.”  He welcomes the tweak because it releases great power.

The American Church has a day of reckoning with American culture.  The clash is inevitable because our society has become an open sewer, a bastion of banality where madness has the microphone.  We have the one message that should not be hidden or redacted.

When the suffering soul tastes peace that passes understanding, and joy unspeakable—when marriages are healed—when suicidal teenagers are filled with a will to live—when the lame walk, the blind see, cancers vanish and addictions break in one-step instead of 12, then the Cross, the Blood, and repentance become—what they truly are: the best thing humanity has ever heard.   We must offend in order to heal.

Is Donald Trump mentally ill?

Is Donald Trump mentally ill? Is he a malignant narcissist…like Hitler was?  Hundreds of mental health professionals put together an organization called Duty To Warn.  Psychologist John Gartner, the founder of Duty To Warn said: “If you take President Trump’s words literally, you have no choice but to conclude that he is psychotic.”  Imagine what the media would do if anyone said that about Obama?

Let me me clear the air on my opinion.  Not only is President Trump sane–he is the sanity that we have been waiting for.   He is crazy like a fox.

What is going on here should enrage you.  It is something born out of total desperation. It is a  much darker and vicious threat to our freedom than you know.  More on that later.

Gartner goes on to say, “We believe that just as we are ethically and legally obligated to break confidentiality to warn a potential victim of violence, our duty to warn the public trumps all other considerations.”

Here is their diagnosis of our president: “His narcissism is evident in his “grandiose sense of self-importance … without commensurate achievements.” From viewing cable news, he knows “more about ISIS than the generals” and believes that among all human beings on the planet, “I alone can fix it.” His “repeated lying,” “disregard for and violation of the rights of others” (Trump University fraud and multiple sexual assault allegations) and “lack of remorse” meet the clinical criteria for anti-social personality. His bizarre conspiracy theories, false sense of victimization, and demonization of the press, minorities and anyone who opposes him are textbook paranoia. Like most sadists, Trump has been a bully since childhood, and his thousands of vicious tweets make him perhaps the most prolific cyber bully in history.”

Here is their goal: “Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment because he is too mentally ill to competently serve.”  To this end, they will stage a nationwide march on October 7th.

Look closely at their final warning: psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton warned against creeping “malignant normality.” Under a malignantly narcissistic leader, alternate facts, conspiracy theories, racism, science denial and delegitimization of the press become not only acceptable but also the new normal. If we do not confront this evil, it will consume us.”  Their multicity March for Sanity on Oct. 7 to “make America sane again.” “Hope to see you there, he says, “assuming we’re all still here.”

If Trump stays in office we will not know truth from falsehood?  We will deny science?  The Press will be delegitimized?  The world will end?  Okay, I ask you, who are the real psychotics?  And where was their mental health integrity during Obama’s reign of terror?

Narcissist?  Obama said of his presidency “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Alternate facts?  In Beaverton Oregon, Obama said he visited all 57 states.

Bully?  When Obama knew that Americans were being tortured and killed in Benghazi, he and Hillary hatched a lie to protect his reelection.  Then he went to bed and slept soundly.

Psychotic anti-social behavior?  In the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2012 Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”  What makes this sick is the way liberals defend that statement.  They say it was among a list of other things that should also have no future.  One of the things on that list is the killing of Coptic Christians.   Obama conflates words against Mohammed to murder.  This is pure Sharia.

It should be no surprise that is also the credo of the antifascists who are destroying free speech on campus: “your viewpoint equals violence, so I am right to riot.”

Conspiracy theories?  The Russians hacked and won the presidency for Trump.  Where’s the evidence?

Global warming of the brain: When noted meteorologist Anthony J. Sadar suggested this:Attacks on skeptics do a disservice to scientists and their profession.”  We was met by a truly unscientific and psychotic firestorm.

The press destroyed themselves.  It wasn’t Trump.  Long before anyone knew who the Republican candidate for president would be they were busy colluding to elect Hillary Clinton, tossing all journalistic integrity out the window.

Of course Trump Tweets.  When 89% of the press has sworn to run you out of office by lying, cheating and slandering…how else do you tell your side of the story?

The real mental condition of today: Trump derangement syndrome: A irrational hatred that negates facts, rational thinking, and emotional balance.  It must become lewd (Stephen Colbert).  It must become delusional—“I lost because of the FBI and misogyny.” -Hillary Clinton.  It must become violent, “I have thought about blowing up the White House”-Madonna.

Now in an act of total desperation a group of mental health workers take it to the next and most dangerous level.  Here it is unvarnished:  If Donald Trump is mentally ill because he opposes our politics.  Conflating mental illness with disagreeing on policy is the stuff of Nazism…the very thing they claim to be against.

The most chilling phrase is “you have no choice but to conclude.”  You must agree with us or you are nuts.  They are taking us down the road to a day when mental illness is simply disagreeing with them.  God help us if the government ever gets behind this.

Remember, this is desperation.  The left is running out of options.  By any means necessary they must get Trump out of office.  It’s like the argument in the school yard.  When the one guy had no more ammunition he would just say, ‘aw, you’re crazy.”

No matter how you cut it.  These “workers” ignore psychosis when it advances their cause.  And who are these people anyway?  Every one of these shrinks are loyal Democrats.  The article was printed in USA Today—a mouthpiece of the Hillary Campaign.  Enough said.

YOU’VE LOST ME

“You’ve lost me.”  That’s the despairing voice of millions of our children. “I don’t get your anger.  I don’t get what you are trying to tell me.  I can’t understand the things you say are important—you’ve lost me.”  What will become of them?  What nameless horror awaits them in the future?  They know that are not valued.  They know they don’t really matter to America anymore.

They are trying to tell us, “You’ve lost me because you do not care about me.”  Tragically, the majority of people who are in their lives, on any given day, do not care about them.   In fact, these activists do not care about anybody’s children—not even their own.

The left really doesn’t even want children.  Seattle and San Francisco have more dogs than children.

In all the noise “progressive” education is making about sex education, diversity and human rights one thing is painfully clear: none of it is about the child.  The noise is for a minuscule number of grown ups–not the children–that liberals see as oppressed.  For Social Justice Warriors there is no tomorrow.

In a telling moment on Fox News Tucker Carlson asked Bruce/Kaitlin Jenner the reason for his/her activism.   The answer was illuminating: “so the next generation will be tolerant of those like me.”  It’s not about what children are going through—it’s not about building a future for them…no, it’s about the cause—the forced transformation of how children should think.  It’s about bulldozing over our current values, no matter what the cost or who it hurts.

Teachers unions make sure the damage begins early.   Most grammar school classrooms are echo chambers of indoctrination.  Your little girl is shamed for not accepting her duty to bring down the patriarchal system.  Your little boy is shamed for, well, being a boy.  Your child is taught to hate America and everything it stands for.

Of course, these lefties have no solutions.   They only have grievances.  They know what they want to tear down.  Then there are the universities.

The welfare of the next generation also means nothing to modern universities where, inflammatory rhetoric trumps reading, writing and math.   Campuses are churning out automatons who can’t think logically, defend their rage, or read their own diplomas.

Look closely into the eyes of protesting students—especially the younger ones.  You will see half-baked convictions.  You will see hysterical behavior from an unsure devotee.  They don’t know if it’s right but they do it anyway out a dysfunctional need for the approval of pseudo-intellectual tyrants.  They want academic approval—chanting and screaming, then like battered children, they’ll glance over at the abusive parent and ask, “is this what you want me to do?!”

And what these professorial bullies want them to do is believe something utterly stupid: i.e. “Your words are like physical violence to me, so I must use violence to silence you.”  Many student protesters can’t explain their protest—heck, they can’t even spell it.  Check out a few of their protest signs!

That brings me to my most important question:  How will they be able to feed themselves with this bogus education?  How will they survive?  Most importantly how will they value freedom enough to protect it?

They are urged to explore their urges—to operate on free-floating anger.  But they cannot persevere.  They possess no marketable skill—nor the will to gain such skills.

Why on earth are we giving these villains destroying our children quarter.  Here’s something all sane people laugh at:  federal funding for institutions who want to overthrow the federal government.  Liberal education is turning into the crime of the century.  They have disgraced themselves.

“You’ve lost me.”  That phrase should awaken a fire in your soul.  Begin with your own child!  Hold them like you never held them before.  Give them the weapons to defeat destructive emotions and dastardly ideas.  Remember how we made fun of home-schoolers…not so much now huh?

I once sat at a round table discussion with other media ministries.  They were talking about future vision and what their ministries would look like in 5 years.  There were a lot of lofty projects in the works.

When it came my turn—they were not prepared for my answer.  I told them I was re-calibrating everything to go after the young.  I told them I was in the throes of fresh surrender to the Holy Spirit.  I told them that we hear the cry of a tortured generation.

I told them the young need meetings where supernatural power gives them proof of Christ.  They need events where the preaching fills them with direction—where God puts the Holy Ghost on them to make them mighty souls the gates of hell cannot defeat.  We need to do way, way more but this is a start.

We have only just begun to fight for them.  I hope you’ll join me in this fight.  At least I hope you will answer the call of God.

One thing I know beyond all knowing—when this generation of children says to me “you’ve lost me,” I will roar back—there is no way we will ever lose you!

AN INCONVENIENT FIRE

Bad news for the lukewarm church, fake preachers, and left-wing God haters.  In this moment of depravity and despair a single shaft of light has pierced the darkness and started an inconvenient fire.

AN INCONVENIENT FIRE

By Mario Murillo

What is this fire doing?  It is spreading an insatiable hunger to know God—just God.  A growing number of believers want to know God Himself—they want just Him.  They are not thinking about anything He can do for them.  They must know Him—more than oxygen, food and water—they must have God!

This fire awakens an ancient hunger—the hunger that possessed saints of old.  A.W. Tozer said, “Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God. They mourned for Him, they prayed and wrestled and sought for Him day and night, in season and out, and when they had found Him the finding was all the sweeter for the long seeking.”

And those who already know Him want to know Him better.  Tozer continues: “Moses used the fact that he knew God as an argument for knowing Him better. “Now, therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, show me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight”; and from there he rose to make the daring request, “I beseech thee, show me thy glory.” God was frankly pleased by this display of ardor, and the next day called Moses into the mount, and there in solemn procession made all His glory pass before him.”

But why would this be the worst nightmare to masked Antifa thugs, tepid seeker churches or false ministers?   Isn’t this fire pulling saints off the front lines into a full-time pursuit of God?   How can this be a threat?  It is the greatest threat!   NOTHING TERRIFIES SATAN MORE THAN A WIDESPREAD HUNGER TO KNOW GOD:

-It puts them into the place and condition that Jesus has yearned for His church.  They are in God’s presence devoid of ideas, agendas, or blueprints.   Their intercession is no longer contaminated.  Prayer is no longer a booster rocket for pet projects.  They are self-emptying to see God in His beauty.

God has triumphed over their dead works.  By doing this He kills the source of their anxiety, cares and inadequacy.   David Wilkerson said, “I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak.”

-They are suddenly alive the real horror—their own flesh.  The issue is no longer the depravity of the culture but their personal carnality.  This inconvenient fire struck Isaiah with such agony he tossed his prayer for influence and power aside.  All he can cry is; “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.”-Isaiah 6:5.   Isaiah is unmade to be remade.

In the towering glory, you see the indescribable.   You see how victorious God is.  How inevitable is His victory!  You see Satan’s utter defeat.  You are transfixed by the wisdom available—the resources at Gods’ disposal—the tactics He can use.  His mighty plan makes our plans microscopically puny.

God will declare to you what He said to Isaiah: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” -Isaiah”- 55: 8,9.

-Here’s what makes this fire so inconvenient:  It was simply not in the plan.

-It was not in the plan for the lukewarm convenient church to level off and be overruled by inconvenient fire.  Attraction based churches fold when God Himself becomes the attraction.

-It was not in the plan for fake ministers to ever stop lying, prospering, or fooling the masses.  The light and heat of this fire will expose and topple them.

-It was not in the plan for left-wing God haters to see their plan to eradicate Christianity from America neutralized by inconvenient fire.

This spreading flame—and the powerful vessels it creates—was simply not in the plan.   So emerges a new vessel—a designed weapon.  An inconvenient person appears on the American stage.  They will own a passion you cannot stop—words you cannot gainsay—and miracles you cannot deny.

WE BETTER START TALKING TO EACH OTHER

One of our regular donors wrote: “How could you go to Bethel in Redding?!  I can no longer support you” They withdrew their monthly support to help me win souls.  Now, I will answer their question with a question.

We better start talking to each other

By Mario Murillo

One of our regular donors wrote: “How could you go to Bethel in Redding?!  I can no longer support you” They withdrew  monthly support that helps me win souls.  Now, I will answer their question with a question.

How could I not go?  Bill Johnson is my closest brother.  I grew up with the Johnsons.  Earl Johnson was like my dad.  Earl gave me one of my very first revival meetings in 1970.

How could I not go?  When Mechelle and I were divorced and churches slammed the door in our faces, it was Bill who never wavered and stood with us until, our marriage was miraculously restored 11 years ago.

How could I not go?  I want to save America.  I stand before thousands of young students at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry—students on fire and yearning to be used of God—students who are teachable.  We desperately need young soldiers to expand our outreaches, and they need an outlet for their fervor.  I would rather calm them down a little than to try to resurrect some cold, dead cynical student from a stuffy, skeptical, Christian College.

How could I not go?  Bethel is a growing force in the Body of Christ that cannot be dismissed.

Our nation is in the most dangerous condition I have seen in my lifetime.  Satan is raging through our culture with virtually unobstructed access to your children.  The church meanwhile is sidelined for stupid reasons.  The Holy Spirit is grieved that we cannot pool our considerable talents and resources to overwhelm the enemy.  Signs and wonders would flow on a dramatically higher level if national eldership flowed in humble unity.

Face to face meetings automatically dial down divisions—polarity declines wherever communication begins.

I could use debate skills to make a case for glaring doctrinal error in everybody from the Assemblies of God to Calvary Chapel.  If that statement offends you…look out!  The greatest heresy is to believe you have achieved doctrinal purity.

That everyone is off on some point of theology is no excuse for heresy—it is motivation for hope.  To correct error, let’s start with our own.  Jonathan Edwards said,” A true saint is suspicious on nothing more than his own heart.”

Not only that, much of what we hear comes from unreliable sources.   In other instances, words were said or written in a moment of excitement.   Perhaps, with brotherly and sisterly love the people we criticize  would tell us “I never said that,” or, “I am sorry, I’ll take that back. I should have said that better.”

There are many false teachers and false prophets roaming America.  That is a different matter.  They need to be exposed.  Sin needs to be exposed.  However, we will not rightly discern truth from error while we are painting with the broad brush of doctrinal paranoia.  I know you have seen the hilarious websites where “truth warriors” list everyone they think is a heretic.  Almost everyone is on that list and it grows daily.

Another big question is this: are we moved by anger rather than true discernment?  Did that former partner of ours let their feelings about Bethel supersede their love for lost souls?

It’s not just heresy hunters that are a threat.   Every preacher who grows more isolated from other leaders is also a threat.  Instead of talking to each other, preachers continue to throw red meat to their base.  This is why we are getting further away from each other.  The grace camp keeps getting more hyper.  The repentance camp keeps getting more judgmental.   The prosperity camp keeps getting more materialistic.  The seeker camp casts increasing doubt on the Bible to gain acceptance from the mainstream public.

Preaching your pet doctrine to the exclusion of all others helps to kill America.  Ignoring the rest of the Body as you expand your empire is a betrayal of Christ—no matter why you do it.

Bottom line:  If you are not alarmed by destruction of the presidency—If you do not see the iron-curtain of mind control ringing down on our colleges—If you do not see the killing fields of drug gangs expanding in our inner cities—If you are blind to the avalanche of immorality and perversion—If you cannot see that time is running out, or that business as usual means certain death…then, you my friend, are an enemy to revival and America.

We need to pray together.  We need to obey God together.  But first, we better start talking to each other…fast.

 

 

Don’t blame Trump. You are doing this to yourselves.

Right now, the media, universities, and the Democratic Party’s credibility is imploding. They yearn to blame Trump.  The truth is, they are doing it to themselves.  Tragically, they are basking in their self-inflicted wounds.

Don’t blame Trump.  You are doing this to yourselves.

By Mario Murillo

Right now, the media, universities, and the Democratic Party’s credibility is imploding.  The press is crying foul.  They claim the president’s attacks erode democracy. The truth is, they are doing it to themselves.  Tragically, they are not only missing the point, they are basking in their self-inflicted wounds.

Secular progressives from all of these institutions have gone off the rails.  Old Democratic Party leftists will not even consider self-examination.  They are the aging actress still trying to get free meals off her looks.   The damage is now clear!   Unable to take anymore, many mainstream liberals are quietly excusing themselves …quietly because of the left’s slander-terror campaign against any liberal who openly disagrees.

The exasperating—over-the-top—leftist behavior has given the base combat fatigue.  Not to mention the fact they look and sound just plain loony.  The new radical left is trapped in a twilight zone.  They are too big to be an insane asylum and too small to be a national movement.  They are merely an elite, out of touch group of bullies who—for the moment at least—hold the microphone.

It’s a fact of life: the public will hold you accountable even when you don’t hold yourself accountable.

It’s a fact of life: silencing people does not convert them.

The Trump excuse has worn thin and now the left must pay the piper.  They told the lies.  They colluded to elect Hillary Clinton.  They own the narrative that is spewing venom.  They are the ones who look unhinged.

fatigue

Here’s an all points left wing loon bulletin:

The University of Michigan has banned whiteboards in the dorms to cut down on hurtful words.

From the Devolving, Democratic Congress:  Maxine Waters calls the entire Trump Cabinet “scumbags.”

From the fading CNN Bunker:  A father asks Chris Cuomo, “what if my twelve-year-old daughter doesn’t want to see male genitalia in the girl’s locker room?”  His answer, “her overprotective father should teach her tolerance.”

A terror group in the Bay Area who call themselves By Any Means Necessary say that they break windows, set buildings on fire and beat people to silence speakers on campus.  Oh, and not on just any campus but Sproul Plaza at Cal Berkeley: the birthplace of the free speech movement.   They said, “Our violence is an act of self-defense.”

When you scream that the enemy is white male Christians—when you use violence to stop free speech—when you say gender is not scientific—you not only sound crazy, but you show the public that the real racism, sexism, and hate is coming from.

You are driving folks to conservatism.  You are the early committee to reelect Trump.  You are alienating America.  A part of me doesn’t want to tell you this.  Napoleon said, “never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

WE WON’T FORGET

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

We Won’t Forget

By Mario Murillo

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

Schumer, Pelosi, and you gaggle of Dem leaders who remain silent in the face of anarchy—do you honestly think we will forget?  We will remember your tacit approval of these riots.

We aren’t fooled by your support for open borders.  It’s not about equality…it’s about staying in power.  How can we forget that?

You hapless Hollywood haranguers who spewed murderous venom—comparing Trump to Hitler, and for calling not only for his death, but for the death of his entire family—will not be forgotten.

haraugne

You nattering nabobs of journalism will live in infamy.  CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times…you have sold your souls to override the will of the people.  Thanks to the internet, social media, and yes, bloggers, you will be fact checked into irrelevance.  How rich!  You complain that Russia hacked the election…while you were the hack of the century for Hillary.   We will never forget how you are still trying to manipulate reality.

We will remember how you all thought you were a resistance movement.  No one said it better than John Feehery in his article for The Hill entitled Dem resistance is futile:

“America is not on the brink of civil war. Trump is not Adolph Hitler or Benito Mussolini. Nor is the so-called “resistance” really a resistance. It’s a political movement.

It’s certainly no French Resistance, which arose after the Nazis invaded and then occupied France in 1940. 

The French resistance movement started slow but picked up steam as the German regime revealed itself to be a murderous, plundering, racist group of thugs. By 1944, the resistance became a full-fledged army, capable of going behind enemy lines, cutting off telephone lines, blowing up train tracks and otherwise causing mayhem.

The Democratic resistance movement isn’t capable of stopping Trump’s efforts to appoint his own Cabinet officials because Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) helpfully changed Senate rules right before he retired. 

Nor will Democrats be able to stop Trump from appointing his highly-qualified pick to the Supreme Court. 

They aren’t much of resistance movement because Trump is not a Nazi and because the United States is not Germany in the 1930s.

An imperfect understanding of history is every bit as harmful as complete ignorance of history. 

The Democrats, and more than a few Never Trump Republicans, imagine themselves to be brave, solitary figures standing against the rise of a brutal dictator.

That ridiculous. 

We not only have plenty of institutional checks and balances arrayed against any potential dictator. We also are, as a people, a nation that takes its liberties pretty seriously. 

We are not the Weimar Republic. We don’t have inflation hitting 300 percent. Unemployment is not at 30 percent but at 4.8 percent. 

We might have our fair share of disagreements, but we have a constitutional process to resolve them amicably, without bloodshed.”

hillary-supporter-attacks-elderly-pro-trump-supporter

We will not forget how thugs, thieves and liars tried to pawn themselves off as guardians of liberty.

We are only two years away from having to remember.  We will not loot, lie, or burn… we will vote.  We will enter the booth with vivid images of both your lawless behavior and the politicians who sided with you.

But there are other things we will not forget: 

We will not forget the soldiers who died to give us the freedom of speech that you are so wholeheartedly abusing.

We will not forget the unborn whose rights—in the name of rights—you have so blatantly disregarded.

Most of all, we will not forget that we are one nation under God.  We will never forget the holy advantage prayer has been in every national crisis.  We will never forget the Bible—the sacred scriptures that formed the character that made us great.

Lastly, we won’t forget the power of forgiveness.  Many young hearts, because of peer pressure, are being swept up in a frenzy of deceit.  We know Christ has the power to open their eyes and give them new life.  We will never forget compassion and the Good News!
