At the end of the day: Light Wins
By Teresa LeNeave
Defiance works to our good and to our detriment. Sadly, most defiance is destructive.
The ancient law God instituted about marriage being between male and female; man has defied and changed. The ancient law of "only one true God"; has been defied and everyday wars are fought over it. The ancient law of always being honest and truthful; has been defied and people live like honesty means nothing anymore. If being honest is not required for the highest office in our land, then why not?
We can't really judge others for being defiant because we, too, are sometimes defiant. Answer these questions? Do you LIKE to be told what to do? Do you LIKE your spouse to tell you to pick up your socks or carry out the trash? Do you LIKE to go to work every day and follow the bosses' whims even if they are in the best interest of the company?
You see, it is our nature to rebel. If you have a child you know I'm telling the truth. Defiance is born into our DNA, but I see something else arising from the political arena and that is gross arrogance. Arrogance stretches the envelope just a little. Where is respect, kindness, honesty, and integrity? How is it that a political leader can be "too Christian", which has been said about some, but they can't be "too worldly"?
On the good side of defiance is the need for Christians to stand up and be heard. If everyone else can stand up for what they believe in, why aren't we? Why did Christians sit on the sidelines and let prayer be ripped from the halls of our schools? Why do we let other religious leaders be spoken of in public places, but not Jesus? I don't understand why one name can be spoken of in public, but not the other. God is Creator and he will get the last word, for sure. May our leaders (especially those seeking the highest office in our land), seek to create not only a strong and powerful nation, but a godly nation. The Bible says, "God is Light." Let's be on the side of Light because light is always stronger than darkness.
