What’s this world coming to? Did you see George W. Bush sitting with Ellen DeGeneres at the Cowboys game Sunday? Did Hell actually freeze over? How dare they be seen together in public having a good time! Aren’t they sworn enemies?? That is how some on the “woke left” reacted after a photograph of the former president and the talk show host surfaced. Twitter almost blew up dogging DeGeneres for being seen associating with such a horrible person. So much so that she had to put out a video response explaining her actions. In the video she says that we should be kind to all people, even those of a different political party.  https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/ellen-degeneres-receives-backlash-for-sitting-with-george-w-bush-urges-americans-to-be-kind-to-everyone.html

Really, is this what we have become? Sadly, yes, this is what happens when we allow agenda driven media to control the dialogue.  Every morning and evening the agenda driven media gets on the airways and draws lines of morality along political lines.  They make their case so clearly that simple association with the other side is grounds for dismissal, labeling and eventually termination of your career.  Another example of how far the media has taken their cause, The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a formal complaint against the judge in the Amber Guyger case.  Why, because she gave her a Bible and offered to pray for her after the sentencing was over.  According to them there is no mixing of religion and the law. https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/judge-says-she-told-amber-guyger-god-can-forgive-you-and-has.html    https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/atheist-group-judge-committed-ethics-violation-by-giving-bible-to-amber-guyger.html 

When we allow society to remove the influence of the Church we lose all common sense.  It wasn’t Ellen who taught us to love thy neighbor, it was Jesus.  It wasn’t a judge who taught us that God is love, it was Jesus. When we exchange Christian influence for the talking heads of today’s media as our source of truth this is where we arrive.  Their goal is the destruction of those who do not agree with them.  Make no mistake, these folks don’t want to coexist, they want the elimination of everything and everyone who does not agree with them. Now, more than ever, the world needs to see what it means to be a real Christian and a valid alternative to hate.  There is hope for those who have been misled and it begins with you and me.           

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13
