Riots are always evil because they’re violent, selfish, and lack self-control–the key quality of a self-governing people.
It is no mistake that God inspired the Apostle Paul to place “self-control” at the end of his list of godly character qualities (Galatians 5:19-23). It is the one that controls all others.
All who participated in the Capitol riot should be prosecuted and jailed. Their behavior led to five deaths, property damage, fear among our lawmakers and angst among the populace.
But the Capitol riot has now ignited a far greater evil in America.
Fascist fury has been unleashed.
We are less than one month away from the certification of the 2020 presidential election. Most people believe that only a miracle can give President Trump a second term.
Yet, mounting evidence exists of systemic voting fraud in America. And historical precedents tell us that no president in history gained a large number seats in the House of Representatives and lost the election (Republicans have won sixteen so far including many women and people of color).
Yet, the odds favor Joe Biden becoming the 46th president of the United States.
If the vote stands, we are a foolish nation.
During Israel’s ancient history, the nation turned away from God to follow other paths. During one decline, Elijah admonished the people to “stop wavering between two opinions (1 Kings 18:21). “If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal follow him.”
Baal represented a heathen tyrant who encouraged sexual debauchery. The living God stood for truth, goodness, and beauty.
In Elijah’s day, Israel could not make up her mind. God’s ways or Baal’s? The people had to choose.
Same in 21st century America. Election 2020 appears a split decision between secular progressives and traditional people of faith.
Here is my take on Election 2020.
