I try never to get into fights with ugly people because they have nothing to lose. The truth always engenders wrath in the hearts of the ill-informed and the dishonest. This is the case because of men’s negative response to the truth. The same truth that makes some angry, blesses others. It just depends upon how truth is received. The three statements below are true, regardless of man’s response to them:

The greatest danger facing Americans is the intellectual zealot – sometimes called a “progressive” in the political arena – who seeks to establish a new international order.

I have always believed that the United States is the greatest nation upon earth and has no reason to be annexed to the rest of the world to survive. Those who want a new international order want a world government and a world religion, plus the right to make decisions for the rest of us, whom they view as incapable of making our own decisions.

No person or group has ever worn the badge of hypocrisy with greater pride than the Pharisees and Sadducees of the New Testament times. They managed to “corner the market” on this despicable inconsistency. They worked overtime to keep their pet sin alive. Most people couldn’t stand to see them coming, much less to grace their presence. They were both tolerated and despised.

Oh really? Do people go as they are to eat out? Do people go as they are to their physician? Do people go as they are to meet some prominent politician? How come a politician is more important than God?

A preacher began his sermon by saying, “Brethren and sisters, here you are, coming to pray for rain. I’d just like to ask you one question. Where are your umbrellas?”

Today’s Americans, including some who have embraced Christianity, could very well be asked, “Where is your faith?”

I found the following little poem in my files (the author is unknown).

Doubt sees the obstacles –

Faith sees the way!

Doubt sees the darkest night –

Faith sees the day!

Doubt dreads to take a step –

Faith soars on high!

Doubt questions, “Who believes?”

Faith answers, “I.”

The above shows us the difference between doubt and faith. Some doubt whether America will survive as a nation. Well, that depends, doesn’t it? Here is the answer: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord...” (Psalm 33:12)
