Youth Inspires Hope for America
As a political activist and soldier in the army of the Lord fighting to stop the Left's hostile takeover of our country, my responsibility is to keep our troops encouraged. “Trust in God and keep your powder dry.”
Candidly, some days are harder than others to stay encouraged. We are bombarded daily with polls and claims by the Left that they are winning and we are losing.
My black brother lives in Baltimore. He was liberal, but has recently embraced conservatism. He once was blind, but now he sees. I've been sending him my articles for years. He said, ”I can't talk to anyone about this stuff.” Fellow blacks reject any criticism of Obama and my brother explaining the folly of voting Democrat. Despite glaring facts proving otherwise, they believe cops routinely murder blacks. My brother said it is as if they prefer to believe a lie rather than the truth.
Even more discouraging, a prominent black conservative succumbed to drinking the Left's/Democrats' Kool-Aid. He said police brutality is the cause of the riots. No, cops are not the problem. Democrat policies that eat away like a cancer at the core of the black family, entrenched entitlement mindsets and the Left's racial bigotry of low expectations are the problem, not cops!
An interviewer asked me how to get through to the black community. I replied, “I don't know.” If you're white and try to deal with issues devastating the black community, Dems and the MSM call you a racist. If you are black trying to help your people, the Left calls you an Uncle Tom. All I know to do is to keep writing articles, keep doing interviews and keep praying.
Still, there is a temptation to believe the Left's messaging that we conservatives have become a small minority and that they have won the battle for America.
A man of God in the Bible named Elijah faced similar feelings of discouragement. He said, "I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too." (1 King 19:10)
Man, can I relate to his frustration.
But God told Elijah to chill out and that he was not alone. “Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel -- all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him." (1 Kings 19:18)
In other words, Elijah wrongly assessed the situation through his limited perspective. The Left is like the man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz. They yell at us from behind the mainstream media curtain, using the MSM microphone to sound all powerful.
While many have drunk the Left's poisonous Kool-Aid which is sweet with government redistribution, handouts, and class envy, I believe conservatives are still the majority in America. God has reserved a remnant of mighty patriot fighters who will not quit; armed and dangerous with truth, the shield of faith and love for their country. These patriots will not bow down to Liberalism, nor kiss its ring. God and us are a majority.
Libs do not care about what we boomers think. Their strategy is to infect the hearts and minds of our children and our children's children. While polling seems to show that liberals are winning the battle for our kid's minds, God has reserved a remnant.
Please listen to this truly inspiring speech by the young Christian Karis Peters.
Even if you are not Christian, it is refreshing to see that not all young people are infected with the highly contagious virus of Liberalism.
I remain hopeful for the future and encouraged to continue fighting. After hearing Karis, you will too.
