Mark Caserta: Raise your hands to fight!

24 Nov

The battle belongs to the Lord!

Mark Caserta is an opinion columnist and editor for Free State Patriot

Have you looked around lately?

It’s as though people are walking about dazed and confused as to how our country hit rock bottom so rapidly.  Drivers stand at the fuel pumps shaking their heads at skyrocketing gas prices.  Grocery carts seem less filled as shoppers attempt to navigate incredible pricing.  Lines at benefacting institutions inundated with people hoping to be able to provide for their families this time of year.

I downloaded a police scanner to my phone the other night, simply needing traffic information, and I had to delete it!  The flurry of activity of the downtrodden and hopeless was inescapable!  It made me anxious and irritable, just as the mainstream media news does to so many people!

There was a time when evil tried to disguise its antics, but that’s no longer the case.  It’s ramped and in your face!  Government officials are wielding the power they’ve finagled to obtain for years.  “We the People” have become the enemy of the left.  The Constitution of the United States is being portrayed as an antiquated document written by white supremacists in an era falsely portrayed by historians.

I’m appalled at those claiming to have “awakened” to social injustice in our nation when they don’t know the first thing about history!  It’s akin to those engaging in a riot when they haven’t a clue why they’re there.  They simply join the emotions of the moment.

Abraham Lincoln once was quoted as saying, “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next”?  I believe we are in the season of harvest for just that sort of progressive planting by liberals. 

For decades progressives have fought tumultuously to remove any semblance of God from society, beginning with the classroom.  Without the Bible, morality and principles fall on a sliding scale commensurate with the movement of the day.  Activity one witnesses on mainstream television would have been deemed highly inappropriate even 20 years ago.

Liberals operate in a process called, “desensitization”.  Their modus operandi is to gradually move the needle of acceptable behavior with an infinite number of small victories.  Incorporated into a long-term plan, these wins moderately but consistently produce an altered degree of acceptance.

We essentially have become desensitized to the behavior and allow it to exist.  Yes, we allow it.

Why do you think the Bible says dozens of times that God’s Word is everlasting? It brilliantly reflects the holy, unchanging character of God Himself!  God knew that mankind, in their consistent failures, would attempt to change the rules to accommodate their lustful behavior.  Hence, removal of God’s Word is prerequisite to an adaptive and progressive lifestyle.

So, what does all this have to do with what’s happening around us?  Everything!  Understand, God’s strength is made manifest in our weakness.  We must humble ourselves and seek His face in resolving the world’s problems.

No man or woman is going to be able to repair the devastation in which we find ourselves.  God may choose to use them as an instrument, but His Will and Works will be the key.

Every election season, people ask me how they should vote.  I will continue to recommend they become knowledgeable about the issues and pray about how and for whom to vote.

Only God knows at this point. 

I heard a pastor from my church recently say, “When I raise my hands to fight, I raise them like this!”  He had his hand raised in the air, praising God!

Good words for us all.
