I beleive that Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be one of the greatest jurists in American history! What a very solid Christian! What a testimony to us all! A big part of me would like to see her as President! I think of purity when I read her story, I have the same opinion of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, I pray she runs for President one day. Leaders like these two give me hope for America. The light of Jesus sure does shine in the lives of Judge Barrett and Governor Noem! I pray for leaders in America that are PURE. Pure living and pure thinking in the ways of our Lord.

Purity is very rare in American politics!

when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 1 Peter 3:2

Way too many BIG EGO’S in American Politics and Journalism! EGO STANDS FOR EDGING GOD OUT!!!!!!!!!

It is very sad to me to say that American politics and journalism stinks to high heaven! There of course are exceptions, but they have become rare in this Country that I love so very much, but I see Satan ripping it apart, using many politicians and journalists.

The Scriptures call the mind of the natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4, “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim. 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan.

In our opinion: Barrett doesn’t need notes to be principled. That’s hard for Congress to understand
Amy Coney Barrett held up a blank pad of paper in the face of senators with mountains of notes. The irony is rich.

I love this message from Billy Graham for ‘such a time as this’ It would be a better world if most politicians would shut up and listen!

Am I wrong to insist that if my friend can’t speak with kindness, not to speak at all?

 Am I wrong to insist that if my friend can’t speak with kindness, not to speak at all? From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

Q: My wife is a good person but has a temper that flares often. She is always remorseful after speaking unkind thoughts and words and is as quick to apologize as she is to hurt others with a quick tongue. Am I wrong to insist that if she can’t speak with kindness, not to speak at all? — F.H.

A: Most people at one time or another have apologized for something they’ve said. The reason in most cases is that people don’t first stop to think about the words that proceed out of the mouth. It may not be because of trying to deliberately hurt someone or to be malicious. It may not even be part of a serious conversation. Nevertheless, reckless words roll off the tongue. Once spoken, the damage is done. Words spoken or written are difficult, if not impossible, to take back.

Jesus warned that people will have to give account one day for every careless word they’ve ever spoken (Matthew 12:36). Those are sobering words. But the answer to reckless words isn’t to try to keep silent! Instead, the Bible says, we should seek to speak graciously, because the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18).

We must guard our tongues, and use the tongue for good instead of evil. Many relationships have been destroyed over hurtful words or criticism that spiraled out of control. Friendships have been broken because of angry thoughts that slip out. Harsh words can’t be taken back; no apology can fully repair the damage.

Jesus Christ wants to be ruler over every part of our lives, including the tongue. We should commit our speech to Him, and ask Him for the wisdom to know when to speak and when to keep silent, and to use the tongue to encourage and help others.
