How To Heal Our Divisions

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 8, 2018

         IT IS SAID THE DIVISIONS IN WASHINGTON AND AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE WORSE THAN THEY HAVE EVER BEEN. I DON’T KNOW. THE COUNTRY WAS DIVDED DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND CIVIL WARS. WE WERE DIVIDED OVER WORLD WAR ONE, UNTIL THE JAPANESE BOMBED PEARL HARBOR WE WERE DIVIDED OVER WHETHER AMERICA SHOULD ENTER THE WAR AGAINST GERMANY. AND THEN THERE WAS VIETNAM, WHICH I LIVED THROUGH AND AS A REPORTER COVERED SOME OF THE ANTI-WAR DEMONSTRATIONS. DIVISIONS WERE STRONG THEN OVER LYNDON JOHNSON IN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND LATER RICHARD NIXON AMONG REPUBLICANS.

         THERE IS A CURE FOR WHAT AILS US. POLITICALLY, THE CURE IS SUCCESS, WHICH PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE ENJOYING WHEN IT COMES TO POLICIES THAT BENEFIT MOST AMERICANS AND THE NATION. SPIRITUALLY, THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER. IT IS REVIVAL. PAST REVIVALS HAVE BEEN SENT BY GOD IN RESPONSE TO A CONCERT OF PRAYER. NO ONE WAS ABLE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR THEIR HUMAN EFFORTS AND GOD WAS GLORIFIED.

         DO YOU SEE ANY OTHER WAY BACK? IT’S NOT THROUGH POLITICIANS, OR EVEN GOVERNMENT. THINK ABOUT IT AND PRAY FOR A REVIVAL. I’M CAL THOMAS.
