Now If That Isn't an Irony!
All through my Christian life—for 55 years—so many Christians emphasized that the only way for all humans to have peace is for humans to accept Jesus as their Savior, to become a Christian.
Then they will change, peace will come in their lives, and they will act in peace, and eventually—at least by the time Jesus returns—peace will come to all of the world.
Here’s one famous phrase—“The Prince of Peace is the only one who can change it [stop war, stop hatred, stop injustice, etc.] by changing one heart at a time.”
BUT the EXACT opposite has happened. For generations.
In every generation, the vast majority of those ‘changed-one-heart-at-a-time,’ born-again-devout Christians are the very humans who are most pro-war, even strongly supporting the slaughter of civilians, and often emphasizing nationalism!
They even now are claiming that everyone ought to put “America First”!
Arrest a 12-year-old disabled girl at the hospital where she just had surgery because she isn't a native citizen, even though she has lived in the U.S. since she was 3 months old.
Send her to a border station internment place by herself.
Forcibly separate thousands of children, including over 100 under 5, from their refugee parents, and move them to facilities far away from their parents in other states!
Utter selfishness, injustice, and no peace.
Now if that isn’t an irony.
Seek the Light of justice, reconciliation, compassion, human rights, equality, and so much more.
Act today for those who are impoverished, those who are suffering, those who are oppressed.
