“The Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, the residence of former U.S. president Donald Trump in Palm Beach, Florida, on August 8, 2022.”
That’s what Wikipedia wrote.
Wikipedia can’t be trusted as truthful because it can be written by most anyone–and carries a strong bias.
I would have written: “The FBI unnecessarily fomented a ten-hour raid on the home of former president Trump on August 8, 2022, something never before seen in the history of our nation.”
See the difference? Here’s why it’s important.
We have spent some weeks describing the immense problem of decay of conscience in American culture and other nations. I believe pastors and Christian leaders are primarily responsible for dimming the lights of God’s love and truth in today’s world.
Last week we looked at the role that the media plays in exploiting the “dull lighting” with a firehose of darkness–from the Internet, to our cell phones, television, videos, and even the music play lists we frequent.
It’s easy to point fingers at pastors and media giants–but we must not start there.
Conscience decay begins with you and me.
So many troublesome things are happening in 2022 that it’s often hard to raise our eyes and see God at work.
But three recent Supreme Court decisions are great cause for joy:
- Striking down the New York concealed carry law (2nd Amendment right to bear arms),
- Affirming religious liberty (Coach Joe Kennedy praying at school), and
- The Dobb’s decision striking down Roe v. Wade.
These stand out as bright rays of sunshine and wonderful answers to prayer, perseverance, and maybe a turning of the cultural tide.
Especially the defeat of Roe v. Wade–on June 24, 2022.
After forty-nine long years, life wins.
