Firefighters struggle to extinguish the fire. (from Reichstag fire – Wikipedia) When we have a problem, we can complain about it, or we can do our best to find a solution and implement that solution (see ARE YOU FOCUSING ON THE PROBLEM OR THE SOLUTION? – Citizen Tom).

Here of late we have had a big problem, and we have focused on the problem, not the solution. We have been engaged in a great struggle we call an election, a highly contested, angry election. On Wednesday that anger apparently boiled over. People — who is still being debated — stormed the Capitol Building. Supposedly, Trump incited his supporters to violence (not true, see PERFECTLY DIVIDED AND THEREFORE CONQUERED? – Citizen Tom). The accusation, unsupported by the content of Trump’s speech, is that Trump stirred up his supporters to invade the Capitol Building.

Here is a personal testimony. As a Trump supporter who was at the rally, I was astonished to hear about storming of the Capitol Building. The funny thing is I first heard the news of the invasion of the Capitol from Democrats, not Republicans, and I was angry about it. That was the last thing I wanted, and I think the most disappointed soul was President Donald Trump.

There is only one leader worthy of our complete submission. That is God, and He is merciful and gracious.


    • My privilege. Thank you for posting.

      A few days before the election I told my sister that we (America) would get the “leader” we deserved. Like the Israelites when they complained about having Judges and wanted a King, like other countries. America has turned our collective backs to God and said we want to be like other countries. 😦

      Pray that it can be corrected.

        Corrected? Depends upon whether we are willing to repent and turn to our Savior.

        The main thing Christians can do is behave in a way that would please Jesus. We have to study our Bibles and with in accordance with its teachings. Then, when the time comes we we be ready.

        1 Peter 3:14-17 New American Standard Bible

        14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you [a]are blessed. And do not fear their [b]intimidation, and do not be in dread, 15 but [c]sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a [d]defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, but with gentleness and respect; 16 [e]and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who disparage your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better, if [f]God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong.
