Happy Memorial Day Sunday!
The Necessity of War
This morning, I’m praying for my fellow Americans: specifically, I’m concerned about our fading patriotism. Especially over the past several years, I see more and more Americans failing to comprehend the necessity of military force.
Cowards Always Downplay The Heroes
I’m very sad for our loving soldiers who leave EVERYTHING to fight for us, sacrificing their legs and arms and minds and lives, so that the rest of us can keep on living our blessed and peaceful lives in this beautiful land… and their war stories are never PROPERLY memorialized in this cowardiced (my new word), modern American society. Sure, we hear about the death tolls every now and then, only to rouse the flag burners and fuel the rapidly growing anti-war sentiment.
What About Diplomacy?
As a Christian, I want peace without war whenever this is possible. I’m all about diplomacy, fully understanding that diplomacy only works between two HUMANE parties.
Todays America has NO IDEA how inhumane so many people groups have become in this 21st century civilization. Many Americans reason that if we will just withdraw our troops from every international conflict and mind our own business, then these evil terrorists will eventually develop a conscious and they will stop destroying innocent lives… and we’ll all live together in love and harmony.
Todays America has NO IDEA how fundamentally CONSUMED WITH HATE these people are. Radical Islam, which is the ONE and ONLY religious system behind every terrorists organization… their hate is not built upon a few series of negotiable disagreements. They thirst for the blood of Jews and Americans, just because we are! They believe their God commands them to kill innocent civilians… that they are supposed to take over the world.
How Does God Feel About War?
If we do not employ military force to execute strong punishment on these terrorist organizations, the time will come when they capture us within our own borders! Yet, some people in todays world, ignorant of the scriptures, claim that using military force as a means of punishing our domestic and foreign enemies is an unbiblical thing. How does God really feel about this?
Romans 13:2-5 “So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.”
Reclaim the Bravery!
I support our military! I believe in the causes for which they sacrifice! I applaud their NOBLE actions! I THINK ABOUT THEM every day, wondering how they are doing and how they families are doing… PRAYING for their success and for their safe return home!
Without war, there would be no peace! Without war, there would be no safety! Without war, evil would prevail over good! Without war, there would be NO America!
God help America to reclaim the BRAVERY that once burned brightly in the hearts and lives of our founding fathers! On this Memorial Day Weekend, let us CONCENTRATE on the meaning of this very important holiday! Let us never defer the challenges of our generation to our children and grandchildren, just because we are too cowardly to KEEP ON PAYING THE PRICE OF FREEDOM!
So, today… I am a GRATEFUL man! I’m thanking God for the sacrifices upon which I’ve built my life! God bless every family who’s given one of their own for all of mine!
Unfortunately, I’m out of time for today… realizing this blog could have be written so much better. I do hope that it inspires you… to HONOR our fallen HEROS… and pray for our living ones… and ALWAYS PASSIONATELY support the BEAUTIFUL men and women of our armed forces… even when it’s unpopular to do so!
I just finished praying for you… hope you have a most triumphant day… love you all!
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
