Choose Wisely

Dear Editor,

Is it just me, or have you noticed that you “doubt” anything you read anymore? Are you doubting what is real and what is just propaganda or hype? Are you doubting Snopes? Are you doubting the news on TV?

I can remember a time when if you saw it on the 6 p.m. news at night you knew it was true. This is by design, people. They want us to believe there are no absolutes … everything is relative … everyone has a valid “reason” for everything they do that is clearly against God’s covenant with His people in the Ten Commandments.

I suggest to you that many of us are at fault for this happening in how we rear our children. When they misbehave or do something blatantly wrong, the first thing out of our mouth is “Why did you do that?” Folks, this is setting them up to think “well, if I can come up with a good enough excuse, I won’t be in trouble.”

Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are the party of excuses. They are the party of playing the victim card. They are the party of denying God’s word as absolute. They want us to believe wrong is not really wrong — it just depends on the circumstances. They want us to believe sin is not sin — because there are several religions and each should person should choose the religion that suits “their” needs. They want us to believe one can break the laws if they have good reason.

There is only one God, and He has told us what the absolutes are in how to know what is morally good and what is morally wrong.

In the 2016 election, we have two main candidates, both who have sinned and fell short of the glory of the Lord, like we all have.

However, Hillary refuses to admit that she does anything wrong and that she is above the law.

Trump is for securing our borders and not allowing people in who don’t honor the rule of law.

Please, please understand that this election cycle will prove if we are a people who believe there are absolutes or we are a people who believe everything is relative. Or in other words, this election is morality vs. conformity.

Vote Trump, because Hillary has proven she lies so much she has begun to think that even if she lies it’s OK because she had a good reason for it. She is no more different than the terrorist Islamists who claim it is acceptable to lie as long as their goal is jihad and world domination. She is a power-hungry woman who has no moral compass, period.

Sure, Trump has sinned, too, but he truly loves America and he truly understands the number one job of the president of the United States is to protect its citizens! He will secure the border and he will bring jobs back to America! And he knows capitalism beats socialism every single time. Socialism does not work — never has, never will!

You are responsible for the direction of your life.

Are you going to let government be God?

Individualism vs. collectivism. Absolutes vs. relativism. Morality vs. conformity. Right vs. wrong. Capitalism vs. socialism. Trump vs. Hillary. Choose wisely, because your future depends on it.
