Is history repeating itself? In the 60’s and 70’s much turmoil caused by protests against war, against sexual purity, and against conservative dress played out during the time of civil rights legislation, and the Viet Nam war. Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated peaceful protest, but the Weathermen and the Black Panthers bombed. Iran held Americans as hostages. Israel was defending it's borders. The hippies dropped out, smoked pot, and made love not war.
Now we have the same conflicts going on. Pot has been legalized in 2 states. Same sex marriage is making its way into the churches, domestic terrorists are shooting people, and there are gang wars in the streets. Islamic terrorists are attempting to destroy the United States and Israel. Israel is still defending it's borders. Read here. Drug cartels and jihadists may be smuggling illegal aliens into the United States. See here.
Saw Megyn Kelly’s interview of Bill Ayers and Dinesh D’Souza last week. Ayers is still trying to destroy the United States and still hating it by continuing on with the story line that everything in the history of the United States is bad. D’Souza, an immigrant from India, points out the good that the United States has done in the world. See this blog here.
But is it really just a debate about politics or is it a clash of atheism and Christianity? Which belief system does the most good? I would say Christianity. But now the children of the militant anti-war, hippy, and baby boomers are of age and covering their bodies with tattoos and piercings. The media is more left leaning than it ever was. They are also ignorant of many things. See this blog here.
Some reasons that our 20 to 40 year olds in this country are leaning toward communism could be the influence of some pot smoking free love, anti war parents. Then there are some college professors who put pressure on students to buy in to atheism or communism. Another reason could be celebrities like Jane Fonda. Here is her story. Click here.
Yes, the whole world is in an uproar now as it was back in the 60’s and 70’s. Is history repeating itself or are these signs that Jesus will be coming back soon?
John 14: 1 "Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 "And you know the way where I am going." 5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?" 6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."
