Friends, polling shows that most Americans associate Planned Parenthood with women's health and that most have not seen the videos exposing their butchery. This news blackout shows the control that the leftwing collosus has over the flow of information. Google and Facebook routinely parse headlines and censor voices to shape perception. The average American does not question what they have been fed by their colleges, by CNN and the news networks. Comedians like Tina Fey and John Stewart are accepted as sources of truth. Populist soundbites promoting suicidal Marxist thought are served up by political pied pipers and gobbled up by unthinking fools. Unaware of the routine suppression and distortion of truth, Joe Blow American truly believes that he is informed.
Then there are those who are immersed in the minutiae of life who have no notion that passing on a prosperous country where liberty is valued has anything to do with them. They live a life completely consumed with temporary pleasures and recoil at the suggestion that they should give any attention to anything more weighty than the latest sitcom or their fantasy sports league.
In the Dark Ages many communities became so isolated in their own villages that they had no connection to the real world around them, and they sank into an immeasurable ignorance. Could we be moving into a Second Dark Ages? Although the world is saturated with information, people do not avail themselves of truth. The information they consume is either worthless or poisonous to the future of the very life they now take for granted as Americans. They have become detached from reality and unmoored from the very foundations that support their existence. And now that America has all but discarded any belief in the need for any sense of moral restraint, there seems to be a vacuum of courage and leadership. Will we see any sound leaders step up to fill this void? Will we see a New Renaissance or will we devolve into a third world backwater that bankrupts itself pampering and feeding the ignorant masses of a mindless and self-involved populace and see 1000 years of unfathomable ignorance and suffering? Only time will tell I suppose. One way or another, this story will come to an end one day.
However I do know that after a long captivity God had this to say to His people as recorded in Jeremiah 29:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
Two things I am sure of from this 1) you still have a purpose to pursue even in the darkness and 2) the darkness won't last forever there is a God who remembers you and is thinking of you. Call upon Him, pray unto Him and He will hearken. -JC HALL
