The Real Cause of our Divisions

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 11, 2021

         WHENEVER I SEE CONFLICT – WHETHER IT IS BETWEEN POLITICAL PARTIES, OR THE HORRIFIC IMAGES COMING OUT OF THE CAPITOL IN WASHINGTON LAST WEEK, IT REMINDS ME THAT SATAN IS IN TEMPORARY CONTROL OF THIS WORLD. IT ALSO CAUSES ME TO REMEMBER THE WORDS OF JESUS TO PILATE AS THE ROMAN GOVERNOR ASKED HIM IF HE WAS A KING. JESUS REPLIED THAT HE IS A KING, BUT THAT HIS KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD.

         PAUL SAYS IN ROMANS 8 THAT GOD HAS BUILT FUTILITY INTO THE WORLD IN HOPE THAT THE WORLD WILL TURN TO HIM. THE PSALMIST WRITES THAT GOD “SITS IN THE HEAVENS AND LAUGHS. THE LORD SHALL HAVE THEM IN DERISION.”

         DON’T BELIEVE ALL THE TALK YOU HEAR ABOUT HEALING AND RECONCILATION. THAT DOESN’T SELL IN THE MEDIA OR IN FUNDRAISING. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS – LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES – WILL CONTINUE AT EACH OTHER’S THROATS, SADLY, BECAUSE THEY WON’T TURN TO THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN TRULY HEAL THE CAUSE OF THE CONFLICT. THAT CAUSE IS SIN AND THE HEALER IS JESUS OF NAZARETH.

         POINT FINGERS AND BLAME AT VARIOUS GROUPS IF YOU LIKE, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE CAUSE OF OUR SEPARATION FROM GOD AND FROM EACH OTHER. I’M CAL THOMAS.
