“We are a good and moral people, and we form a nation that is the hope of mankind–quite possibly, the last hope of mankind.” –Eric L. Haney
“The earth for us is a place to live in, where we must put up with sights, with sounds, with smells, too, by Jove!–breathe dead hippo, so to speak, and not be contaminated.” –Joseph Conrad
It smells rotten and it jerks my jaws! Maybe it’s that poor, underprivileged prima donna of a quarterback. I would wonder how much of his money has he given to help? Has he been to Baton Rouge to help the people there? I saw where Convoy of Hope was on the scene but haven’t seen a truck from BLM. Rebel rousers don’t show up when there is work to be done, only when there is a means to cause strife and division. Helping people is not part of their agenda and it stinks.
Is that a dead hippo I am beginning to smell, or is it the rotting soul of America? What in the world are we doing when we allow a few to make policy for the many? How can we continue to make the pretense of a Christian nation (oh, that’s right our pseudo-president said that we no longer are)? How do we go on without being contaminated? I think Kipling had it right when he said, “We’ve go to do what we can till after the war.” The problem is that so many do not realize that we are in a war. The war is raging and it seems few are fighting. There is a war against the very foundations of morality in this country. The nonsense should be stopped, but then maybe people are becoming immune to the smell of the massive corpse.
Remove the cross and the Bible and the foundation stones of the country have been removed. The cross represents several things. First, the suffering, sacrifice, and death of the Savior for the sins of mankind. Remove the cross and hope is removed. Mock the cross and the Savior and what is left? Second, the cross leads to the tomb which states that the act is finished. Jesus was removed from the cross, placed in a tomb, and rose again. That brings up a third reason; it is a reminder of the hope that is ours. One day those who died under that cross will again tread this earth with the Savior. The cross is important because it represents sacrifice, not decay. So many have sacrificed, some given their all for this nation. They died for the fellow man; they died for the future of this country.
What really stinks is those who spout their mouths, spread lies, fill their pockets and spit on the sacrifice of those gone before. We must keep fighting the war. We must not become contaminated by the garbage that seems to surround us.
“How long, foolish one, will you love ignorance? How long will you mockers enjoy mocking and you fools hate knowledge?” –Proverbs 1:22 (HCSB)
