A recent Daily Citizen column by Walter Williams will both awaken and frighten any thinking person who claims even a smidgen of knowledge about — or belief in — either the Bible, world history or current events.
From Proverbs we know that those who would entrap us use our own worldly self-interest, ignorance and gullibility to hide from us those traps they are setting for us. Even though God’s Word gives us guidance for identifying and avoiding these traps, we continue to be snared by the glib tongue and the fake smile of both the politician and the preacher.
From history, we know that an abundance of evil rulers came into power saying they would bring help and security to those blissful souls whom they ultimately controlled and frequently killed. Williams’ citing that our 20th century was a time when more were killed by their governments than ever before is very hard for you, I and other Americans to believe will ever happen to us or our children. Are we more ignorant than that we are willing to admit?
From our current news media, we know of mass killings in scattered locations on a daily basis. All the while our bloated governments and fun-filled religious institutions continue to assure us, “We are here to help you.” Beware of those who advertise that their only goal is to help you. Too often, they seek only to help themselves!
Check out 1 Thessalonians 5:21, reliable world history sources and what’s happening around you. Then, make your own decision, but know your decision will greatly affect your children and your grandchildren.
