In our world of increasing deception and group think, I often lean on Bill O’Reilly’s “No Spin News” as a solid news source. It’s worth the monthly fee ($5.25) to get an honest view of national and world events.
I agree with O’Reilly about 90% of the time because our worldviews are closely aligned. But this week I disagreed with him on the House of Representatives “Speaker” vote. He thought it was a waste of time with too much grandstanding.
I view it as representative government making a much needed comeback.
I’m sure you continue to pray for the evil Russian invasion of Ukraine. Civilians have been killed, millions have fled the country, but most have remained to fight for their freedom.
Then there’s the “truth” problem. Russia feeds us worthless propaganda. Ukraine puts the best face on their brave resistance. And the world press–not holding to a fear of God and commitment to the ninth commandment–feeds us numerous falsehoods and ideology-driven narratives.
I will speak to the lies and character we need starting next week. Today, let’s answer why Putin invaded Ukraine.
Fourteen years ago, while taking a prayer walk in the east Texas countryside, God spoke to my heart that the world was about to change–radically. I thought it would happen immediately (prophetic people sometimes get the right idea but miss the timing).
Looking back, I believe the Obama years accelerated change in America–and now it is upon us.
We’re entering a new world–a new era in history. The critical thing we must develop is the character necessary to survive and thrive in it.
Character is destiny.
