Time for Healing? It depends on what their meaning of "healing" is
After 8 years of the venomous vilification of George W. Bush, liberals in the "mainstream" media, some of whom actually called for Bush’s assassination (veiled as a joke) – now say they want a new tone! “It’s time for the healing. they say” How magnanimous.
Marketwatch columnist Marshall Loeb wrote a piece today titled “How Obama Can Inspire a Nation” – in which he offered some suggestions: “The new president may seek to bind up the nation's wounds after a divisive election campaign. Thomas Jefferson, in his first inaugural in 1801, declared of the two major political parties of the time: "Every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We are all Republicans. We are all Federalists."
That is a great quote and it was then true as the primary beliefs were the same among most Americans. The differences that currently divide our country are fundamental. To forget about our differences and unite with the left would be a compromise that any God fearing person -who actually believes in the words of the Declaration of Independence- would be unwilling to make. To the left, the word “Creator”, the One from Whom our inalienable rights were endowed is just an affectation, an inconvenience that they would expunge like the 10 Commandments from an Alabama courthouse and our children’s classroom walls - if they could. In the midst of all the sophistry, they want us to forget who they actually are and from whom they take their orders (ACLU).
I –want - to support Obama because he is the President and quite a charming, affable one at that. However, despite the elegant rhetoric, if he actually does the things he has said he is going to do policy wise, he must be regarded as far from a true friend of liberty as he and his party have for the last 45 years labored to subvert the great pillars of this country expatiated in Washington’s Farewell Address (co-written by the great Hamilton).
It cannot be genuinely stated (reminiscent of Jefferson’s quote) that today “we are all Democrats. We are all Republicans”. To say so would be delusional. Our foundation, our worldviews are polar opposites. We are as two different countries from two different continents.
If reconciliation and “healing” means that I must allow the government to teach my children their brand of “tolerance”, if it means that I must stand by and let these people make a mockery of the institution of marriage – if it means that I must give approbation to the millions of innocent human lives being taken with the sanction of our federal government or the harvesting of human embryos for demented "scientific" experiments, then may God Strike me dead before I ever have the chance to make so egregious a compromise.
It would be better that they tie a millstone around my neck and to be thrown into the ocean than to cause even one of God's children to stumble.
I'm concerned as I hear Christian leaders handle this important subject because there will be a time when even the very elect will be decived. They are acting as though we don't have a clue what he's going to do. I have heard many say that he's our President and we need to pray for him.
As a Christian, I am and will be praying for President Obama. I will be praying that God will not allow him to do the things to this country that he has already promised that he would do.
If Obama is able to fulfill his campaign promises, I am praying that God will have mercy upon us and deliver us from this evil.
This past Sunday was “Sanctity of Life Sunday,” a day in which we prayed for God's mercy on us for the now 50 million innocent human beings whose blood is on our hands. When put into that perspective it testifies to God's mercy and patience. How reasonable is it to expect MORE patience from God, especially when we have a new President who has pledged to expand the atrocities through stem cell research.
It's a sick world out there and I get the feeling that Christian leaders are obtuse to the notion that maybe, just maybe God as he did with his CHOSEN PEOPLE Israel – has handed us over to our enemies. I certainly pray not but time will tell.
