The real reason Trump yells “fake news” and constantly denigrates the press is that the press refuses to allow his lies, his racism, his ignorance and his sexual misconduct to be ignored. The press continues to show the real Trump to the world.
Trump flees from the press like a roach flees from the light, and for the exact same reason. Once decent folks see the ugly reality that is Trump they want to spray insecticide to rid their surroundings of such a loathsome creature.
When those that care join together with one voice there is unimaginable power. We can truly transform the world. Never be afraid to stand up and speak out. It’s the only way to overcome the lying and the greed.
Not the Ten Commandments, for sure, but this is still a nice concise primer on a subject with which the the church continues to struggle. Perfect love casts out fear. The church’s fear of homosexuality is a perfect illustration of this. We all need more love and less fear.
Love is not just an euphoric high of emotions. Love is an intentional lifestyle that is lived out in every decision and in every moment. It is humbly attempting to model ones life in a manner that reflects the love, mercy and grace we have all been given. Love is just the recognition that our entire lives should be a unending thank you for the grace we have received without cost and without measure.
