Events in Dallas

Recent events in Dallas have everybody on edge and thinking of racial tension with a renewed sense of urgency. Many people blame "Black Lives Matter" for much of it, while others say it is the behavior of white police officers in the first place that have brought all of this upon them. It seems that the racial divide as widened since the president was first inaugurated. Do I blame the president for that? No, not really. I blame people in general. I blame evolutionists, who made this idea of different races popular. What? Evolutionists? What have they to do with it, you may ask?

Discussions of different races and humans vs. "subhumans" became more widespread after appearing in certain literature early on that promoted the theory of evolution. Some early adherents of the theory began discussing the different "races of man." The Bible makes no such distinction of race between any group of people. In fact, quite clearly there is one race of humans: mankind.Moreover, if you wish to leave the bible out of it and approach the subject from a purely scientific point of view, then you will soon discover that DNA makes the case for only one species of man.

The cure for the ills of society, when it comes to racial tension, is clearly mentioned in the Bible: JESUS. The following gem is taken from the Book of Acts, chapter 17 and verses 26-28: And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. (KJV)

My thanks to my pastor for pointing these words from Acts out recently when teaching from the book.

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Comey Testimony

It's been a while since I have seen the kind of hype that there has been around having Director Comey testify in front of the Senate today. It seems worse than Watergate! There also seems to be no evidence thus far except for of the here-say variety .

No less than 5 times did he call President Trump (or his administration) a liar. Aside from what that does to the office of the President, it takes away from getting things done that so desperately need to get done. Now, please don't misunderstand, if there has been serious wrongdoing on the part of the Trump administration, then they need to be called out on it. We have already recently had 8 years of "anything-but-transparency" in Washington.

Reading the New York Times would lead one to the conclusion that this was a bad day for the Trump administration. I'm not so sure of that. I'm not huge fan of the President, but have to say that I did not hear anything qualifying as evidence to bring about impeachment pro…
