America needs to stand for the truth

Parent Category: Editorials Written by Amanda Mitchell Hits: 757

    Our country is in trouble in so many ways. Donald Trump was elected because he was at the top of the Republican ballot. Evangelical Christians are trusting him, though they may not like the way he acts. They will support President Trump just to be sure they maintain control of the government. Senators like Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruise and other true conservative leaders, both in the House of Representatives and Senate, will support him despite his poor or discriminatory choices.

    President Trump has ignored sound science, he has fired those who have attempted to be honest with him. President Trump is blind to issues presented by those he should trust and allows outside influencers to guide and promote his narrative. Then, he hires people who will endorse his lies. Even the vice president falls right in the line. Fox News Channel leads their broadcast towards the president’s false narrative. They search out their own doctors or scientist to back their false claims…therefore passing this on to their viewers. As a result, viewers believe what they hear…do not even question the validity of the source.
    The World Health Organization, top epidemiologists in the world agree that COVID-19 is real, very contagious and deadly. They also state that masks are vital in controlling this virus, yet President Trump has continued to say it is nothing and it will go away. He has put hundreds of thousands of Americans at risk by his inability to face or accept truth. Every American has access to both the truth and the lies, it is upon every American to search out the truth. Not to just hear and see what they want, and not what is just beneficial to their own agenda.
    America needs to stand for Truth. Christians you will recognize the following verse: II Timothy 4:3 King James: 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. NIV: For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
    Anyone who knows God’s word and believes God’s word, knows that Jesus is coming soon. We are living what Timothy prophesized in God’s word. Will people head to these warnings? The happenings in the government, including President Trump and the Republican Party’s actions, propagates falsehood, like increase in the stock market.
    What will Christians do? How can they blatantly disregard sound doctrine, be led astray so easily? The beginning of sound doctrines is the Holy Bible, but it is not limited to that. If science is advancing, there will always be professionals, scientists, epidemiologist, doctors, etc. who give facts. Please, listen to experts.
    No matter the color of our skin, our sexual orientation, or whether we are Democrat or Republican, we all bleed red and we are all Americans. There is a misconception that in order to be a Christian you must support the entire Republican agenda, meaning as a Democrat you cannot be a Christian. Democrats have spoken up against the mistruths, injustices, and crimes that have been waged against our democracy since President Trump became president. As Christians and as Americans, we must stand strong for our values, we must stand for truth, we must stand for justice, and we must fight for the Constitution of the United States.
    Our country is facing one of the most catastrophic times in history due to COVID-19, job loss and financial depression. It is vital that everyone register to vote and make sure to vote this November. Will Americans choose to keep President Trump in office where he will continue to lie, defile our justice system, and ignore that our country is not about the strength of the president but about the strength of our people united.
    “Are We living in the End Times?” written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jinkins is a book on Bible prophesy and shows us God’s plan during these sadly historic days in American History. As we Christians pray for health, safety, and moral wellbeing of our nation, let us wake up to what is happening to our federal government. Let us realize the importance of real science, real representation of Christian values, equal rights, equal justice, ethical leadership are the values of those who should be governing our precious democracy.
