Real Power

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 6, 2020

         WE HEAR A LOT OF TALK ABOUT POWER WHEN IT COMES TO POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT. SUCH PHRASES AS “TRANSFER OF POWER,” “GAIN POWER” AND “BALANCE OF POWER” ARE FREQUENTLY USED BY THE MEDIA.

         ONE DEFINITION OF POWER IS: “THE CAPABILITY OF DOING OR ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING.”

         ONE CAN ARGUE – AND I DO – THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS USED POLITICAL POWER UNLIKE ANY RECENT REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. THAT’S ONE REASON, I THINK, WHY SO MANY WEAK REPUBLICANS FEAR HIM, BECAUSE HE MAKES THEM LOOK WEAK, LACKING CONVICTION AND PREFERING TO BE LIKED BY THE ESTABLISHMENT.

         BUT WHERE DOES REAL POWER COME FROM? IT COMES FROM GOD. HE ALONE HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE A LIFE AND FIT US FOR HEAVEN. ALL POWER AND AUTHORITY ARE HIS. IF CONGRESS COULD ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING THAT PROMOTED THE GENERAL WELFARE WOULD THEY NOT HAVE BY NOW? THINK ABOUT IT. WHERE DOES YOUR POWER COME FROM? I’M CAL THOMAS.
