Hard not to talk politics. Something running through my head during this time is a poem written by Hiram Mann. a New York City attorney who died at age 83 in 1955, had these lines published in the Wall Street Journal in 1947:
No man escapes
When freedom fails,
The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: “Appease, Appease!”
Are hanged by men they tried to please.
My dad had that in his wallet for years. As a child I thought that was Stalins Russia and Hitlers Germany but now I know all to well we are heading down the same path, if only everyone else could see that. Any way, we aren’t there yet and I hope the Lord comes back before than. My hope is in Jesus alone and as the Bible says in Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Another good one is Isaiah 45:6b-7 I am the Lord, and there is none other. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all thesethings.
