America, we do not need to read a well-written, documented book to know who Donald J. Trump is.
He is who he has always been: the prototype of the “strong man” that the Bible refers to whose objective is to rob, steal and kill. Thus, if any American must read a book to come to the rational conclusion that Donald J. Trump is sociopathological, he or she needs to self institutionalize.
We will win
Blacks know that the GOP, Christian right-wing evangelicals, Trump loyalists nor President Trump can cause lasting or enduring problems for the Black community, because we spiritually understand that “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8: 31).
It is moral disciplinary time in the Black community! Too many institutional structures are morally and internally out of order; therefore, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” (Luke 12: 15).
Seemingly, there was a governmental conspiracy to promote warring gang factions in the Black community as a drug turf war and moneymaking enterprise. This ungodly socio-spiritual phenomenon is currently destroying any sense of a spiritually unified community.
Time to get serious
It is community, internal cleanup, “come to Jesus” time. The Black community must collectively come together in order to eradicate all criminal enterprises in our community based upon God’s laws, especially “thou shalt not kill, steal and bear false witness against thy neighbor” (Exodus 20: 13-17). This we must do in order to become worthy in the sight of God, and for the sake of our children and future generations.
We have lost two generations to the spiritual scourge of family breakdown and dysfunctions, drugs, and gun violence. Jesus spiritually warned us against allowing Satan to fill our hearts with evil for the love of money. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6: 12).
Blacks must morally and internally discipline themselves and move to a higher level of collective interdependence and collective responsibility, because no one can be better to you than you are to yourself.
Live from the inside
White privilege is the structural cause of institutional dysfunctions in the Black community, but in the 21st Century, Blacks are sociopathologically perpetuating the dysfunctions created by Whites. Blacks refuse to live from the inside (internally) to the outside (externally). Materialism as a way of life is a losing proposition. An external value orientation lifestyle creates confusion. God is not the author of confusion, but of peace.
Living by what you put in and on your body is a losing spiritual and physical proposition Ultimately, individuals can only their souls, not their bodies (Hebrews 9:27).
Churches must lead
Christian churches must play a spiritually pivotal role by ridding the community of houses of ill repute, gang-banging, and those with thuggish behaviors who will not listen nor seek to spiritually understand Biblical truths.
Blacks must relearn how to live as individuals of light and above reproach morally so that we reflect God’s goodness to others. “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy
Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God…” (Hebrews 6: 4-6).
