Darkness descended on the United States last week when the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Trump on a party-line vote (with four Democrat defections).
It happened–despite any evidence of a crime–to nullify the votes of 63 million Americans in the 2016 election. It was a sad day for truth, democracy, fair elections and love and light.
Merry Christmas, America.
But the ugliness of this sin or all sins combined do not rank as the greatest power in the universe. This week we celebrate the awesome reality that will ultimately triumph in history.
The Incarnation of Jesus Christ: God’s Love & Light.
This week the U.S. House of Representatives will likely vote to impeach the 45th president of the United States on bogus charges and no crimes–a horrible misuse of our Constitution.
Impeachment is not a legislative process–it is a political one. Everything we hate about politics will be on display by the Democratic Party on Thursday, December 19.
It will be one of the worst days in the history of our glorious republic.
Over the next two weeks I want to talk about the two greatest realities in human life. One is agonizingly negative–the ugliness of sin. The other is gloriously positive–the magnificence of God’s love.
Let’s discuss the bad news first.
This Present Darkness: Impeachment
As impeachment-mania rages in the mainstream media in the United States, and as President Trump counter punches Joe and Hunter Biden with allegations of nepotistic corruption in Ukraine and China, I hear some voices in the background.
They are extremely agitated, cunning, reckless, and running scared.
There are other voices I long to hear, but in today’s column I will focus on the background wails that seem to be rising in the United States and all over the world.
I hear a cry of desperation.
