Re­claim lost virtues

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

I be­lieve Pres­i­dent Trump is try­ing to help this coun­try re­claim some lost virtues, but it seems that the crit­ics are op­pos­ing him at ev­ery turn. The Demo­cratic sen­a­tors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives are work­ing hard to op­pose ev­ery­thing he does. Even some of the Repub­li­cans are stand­ing against him.

If Amer­ica is once again strong it must come from our homes. The home unit is the old­est known to man and I have said, and still be­lieve, if the home unit as God cre­ated it ever fails, so will this coun­try.

How can we, as grass-root Amer­i­cans, help our pres­i­dent make this coun­try stronger again? The church can be a great sup­port, but the min­is­ters preach­ing must quit tip­toe­ing through the tulips and preach the word of God out of a ded­i­cated love for God and stop wor­ry­ing about what men will think of them. It is also my be­lief that our churches are only as strong as the homes that make them up. So to strengthen the church, we must strengthen the home, and the re­sult will be a stronger na­tion that will make our pres­i­dent’s job eas­ier.

Do our homes have godly fa­thers and moth­ers? Or could it be we are ex­pect­ing our TV pro­grams to help our chil­dren grow to ma­tu­rity? If we do not have an in­flu­ence on our chil­dren, who will? I doubt you want that an­swer! I close with this text on be­half of Pres­i­dent Trump from 1 Ti­mothy: “I ex­hort there­fore, that, first of all, sup­pli­ca­tions, prayers, in­ter­ces­sions, and giv­ing of thanks be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in au­thor­ity; that we may lead a quiet and peace­able life in all god­li­ness and hon­esty.”
