That memorable phrase from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade can perhaps be no more relevant than it is in this day.
Like many others, I watched Donald Trump’s recent speech (in which he announced that he’s running in 2024) and like many others- I didn’t see that it contributed to making the day “one of the most important days in the history of our Country” like he mentioned. Personally, I thought it was one of his better speeches because it briefly and pointedly addressed many key problems in our country.
...except there was no mention of God.
I’ve been saying for some time now (to a mostly-empty room) that this is a time that goes far beyond Red vs. Blue; it is a fight for the planet as well as the country- and it is a fight between Good versus Evil. Rarely is anyone within earshot convinced, which I find to be remarkable, because how else would one frame the argument that we should be able to kill a baby up to the day of its birth? What type of person allows the promiscuity of a woman to be placed higher than a life? In what context is teaching youngsters how to put a dollar bill into a drag queen’s thong appropriate? In what universe, exactly, do we need to teach grammar school children about sexuality, and support changing their gender without a parent’s consent, or even knowledge?
I beg that these times represent that of the most open and flagrant abominations in our history, and the most open attack on the family, the person, and the soul that we have seen in some time. These attacks are by no means the first, but in our times they are the most open and aggressive.
And nothing- NOTHING- will save this country aside from repentance and a turning back towards the faith and morals of our Founding Fathers.
Now, I understand freedom of religion and such, BUT there was an assumption of a basic set of morals, honor, and integrity, that I find sorely lacking today. I’m fairly certain that Ben Franklin didn’t think that he needed to consider the local library’s drag queen story hour when he was considering the future of the country….
In short: I wish the best for President Trump, but I believe that whatever anointing he had in the past- unless he shifts towards repentance, though he may win (doubtful!), the country will continue to lose, and with that- the world.
God will not bless the murder and mutilation of children.
