I am very grateful that we are approaching the time of year when professed Christians celebrate the birth of their savior. As a believer, I do not disrespect anyone who may have other beliefs, but I stand by what I believe.
So much has transpired over the last two years, that it is only by our faith and belief that we are able to press on. A syndicated newspaper recently quoted the vice president of the United States as saying that he and the president are believers.
He reportedly testified that the two of them have faith in the same one that will be celebrating his birth at Christmas. I personally find that the actions of these two, do not line up with the teachings of the life of Christ.
The last two years, in fact, tell a very different story. Christ would never do the things that these men have done and are striving to get done. From the time of his birth until the time of his departure, Jesus spoke in terms of love, caring for one’s fellow human beings, taking care of the elderly, widows and children; never did he speak or act as our president and vice president. The life of Jesus was entirely different.
Our president and vice president proclaim to be truth tellers. However, they have lied and upheld liars. Through all of the actions that have been taken by these two, believers know that because of the birth of Jesus, unjust actions taken by these men and their followers, including the passage of that horrendous tax bill that takes from the poor and gives to the rich, serve to strengthen our resolve. We will stand firm in our faith and knowledge; and this Christmas season will mean even more to us. You see, we walk out on our faith and knowledge of Jesus’s love and grace for us daily.
In my opinion, the evangelical supporters of these men, and not the true teachings of Jesus, will soon see the errors of their ways. As we move toward that glorious day of the birth of Jesus, we have some evangelical leaders who contemplated voting to send an alleged child molester and racist to the Senate. The president, who professes to be a believer, is a nonapologetic alleged sexual harasser himself. One cannot be a believer if he cannot admit to or confess sinful misdeeds or actions.
Brother L. Davied Bond spoke beautifully to these lamented facts, in his letter (“High morals have left us,” The Daily News, Dec. 4). No matter how men try to distort the truth with lies, the day of celebration of the birth of the truth has and always will reveal a lie for what it is. These so-called dark days will pass. This is why we do not worry about what individuals in high places and their supporters may do or say, for they will all know the truth. Immorality will not win. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
