When Evil came to my City, Orlando, first I Cried and then, I Prayed! I'll continue to Pray, but I am all cried out!
When Evil Came to Town
Evil entered into my backyard, close to home, too close for comfort!
Yesterday I cried.
Yesterday I prayed.
I will continue to pray, but Today.....
I am just angry!
Yes... you can be a Christian and you can be pissed-off, all at the same time!
It is infuriating to me what Political Correctness has done and continues to do to us.
It has weakened us!
It has people; including acquaintances...including the Media...including the President of the United States....scrambling to find something Tangible to place all of the blame on, instead of calling it what it is... pure unadulterated Evil!
Evil in the form of radical Islamists created the carnage in Benghazi...Paris...Fort Hood...San Bernardino and so on and so on and now it is responsible for the carnage in Orlando.
Guns, pipe bombs, box-cutters, machetes, knives, vehicles, improvised explosive devices, (basically anything and everything that they can get their wicked, wrong-doing, evil hands on) are tangible tools...a Means utilized by All of these Evil Doers, as they seek to conquer and destroy.
Evil wins, when Evil is ignored!
Evil thrives, when it is packaged up into little packages and labeled 'Something Else', 'Anything else', 'Other', 'Unsolved'...as long as it is in Politically Correct little tangible packages.
Every time these 'labeled' little packages are put away, closed off and ignored in some back storeroom, Evil triumphs!
These individuals, these Evil Doers, have chosen the wrong path, a path far removed from Holy God and his Holy Word.
A path far removed from The Way, The Truth and The Life!
It is time to start calling it what it is, especially when you are the President of the United Sates for crying out Loud.
For crying out Loud!
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!
I am working on containing my Anger....
In the meantime,
I will continue to pray for the City of Orlando!
I will continue to pray for this Nation!
I will continue to pray for this World!
- I am praying for the families of all those senselessly murdered and for the survivors of this latest massacre, to be able to move on with their lives, in as healthy a way as is humanly possible.
- We cannot begin to understand their mental and physical pain, but God does!
- I pray that if they do not already know Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with him, they'll get to know him.
Also, for those on the path, far removed from God, I pray that they can be reached. I pray that their children can be reached, before another City awakens to such horrific News.
Holding on, in Faith....
Personally, I do not understand how anyone gets through the day to day or through these trying times that we are in, without it!
We must be resolute and unwavering in defeating Evil, but a very important first step, is recognizing it and calling it by its name.
Evil abounds, but God is Ever-Present!
The Town Failed to recognize, Evil
It deeply saddens me that Orlando's Mayor, along with the City of Orlando, chose not to recognize Evil and call it by its name, but rather look to the Past for something, anything 'tangible' to place blame on.
They needed to make a sacrificial offering to please the P.C. crowd and so.....
they chose to place all blame, target all hate, toward a statue, which has stood in Central Florida for over 100 years.
In record time, the statue was dismantled and if it has not already been, it is scheduled to be relocated to a cemetery.
The statue's crime?
It has stood In Memoriam to fallen Confederate soldiers that lost their lives during the Civil War!
- I need someone to put all of this, (erasing of History) into perspective and make some kind of sense out of it, because, I can't get there!
Once again, I find myself working on containing my anger, well aware that if every single piece of America's History is replaced or destroyed - renamed or banned.....
Evil with still exist, as it has since the beginning of time.
Once again, reminding myself, (ignorance) and Evil abounds, but God is Ever-Present!
