American society is at a spiritual crossroads because of the merciless, brutal, police murder of George Floyd.
Which way America: spiritual unity or societal chaos? Can Americans become better people rather than bitter people?
America’s president would never militarize internal law enforcement (communism). The
ungodly non-leadership mindset of Trump has placed American democracy on trial.
Moreover, Trump’s mindset (I and I alone can fix it) has brought all of the apostles of greed and the generals of racial superiority into centralized governmental power.
The “I” that Trump references is the “I” that is in the middle of “sin.’’ All human beings are in relationship to others because everyone is born into a family structure. Family is the basis of all societies. No individual can exist in isolation because we are all interconnected.
America is facing a tri-factor of national disasters: COVID-19, Economic Injustice, and Civil Unrest. Adding insult to injury, America has a presidential leader that cannot spiritually lead, will not follow others, and will not step aside.
One of the most dangerous forces in the world is an individual that thinks he knows everything about everything, but really knows nothing about anything.
Americans are crying out for human dignity and godly justice for all in the immortal words of Rodney King, “can’t we all get along?”. The GOP has made an unholy bargain with the devil and history will harshly judge The GOP and President Trump, because they placed American society on a pathway to become bitter Americans rather than better Americans.
Know this; Trump has a ‘mob boss, chaos mentality,’ because he does not know how to be a presidential leader.
America is facing the righteous judgment of God! The question is: “how do we repair the spiritual, moral breach in American society?”
When individuals around the world demonstrate against the inhumanity of America’s criminal injustices toward Blacks, it is time to get right with God.
God is our peace and Jesus is the repairer of the breach, and can tear-down the socio-economic-barriers that divide us, and make us “one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all”.
