This is not a time to panic, America!

Updated June 2024

On April 12, 1861, Fort Sumter was invaded by the South Carolina militia triggering the Civil War. As you hopefully know, I am not an alarmist, but the January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol by right-wing rioters certainly emphasized the depth of division in America.

Today, there are serious talks of a second civil war, states considering seceding from the Union (Alaska, Texas, California . . .) and polarizing politics paralyzing Congress!

The results of the 2024 presidential election could light the fuse on these explosive divisions.

However, this is not a time to panic! It’s time to fervently pray for our republic, to repent of any hatred and anger we may feel toward our perceived enemies, and to work at defusing this explosive atmosphere in our own communities. May God help us all!

God is on our side . . . and theirs
Both the North and the South in America’s Civil War firmly believed God was on their side.

To angry voters . . .
If you’re “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore,” then this post is for you!

There is no peace on earth

Will God’s will be accomplished on election day?
God has a record of working through ungodly rulers!

What would Jesus say to a Church divided by politics?
Jesus lived in a politically-charged culture even more divisive as today!
