Is the US on the verge of civil war?
Civil War Starts At The US Capital
Trump supporters strike first as the second US civil war breaks out at the Washington DC capital building. Could that be the headline tomorrow? One would hope not but, intolerance and hate are alive and well in the United States.
Both sides lay the blame on the other. Both sides claim the other side does not understand them. In fact, according to a Pew Research article, only 2% of Biden voters and a similar share of Trump supporters believe the other side understands them very well.1 And today, Trump’s supporters launched an invasion of the Capital building.2 Is it the start of the second civil war?
Is The United States Really On The Verge Of A Second Civil War?
One would have plenty of reason to believe the civil war is beginning. Our county is divided, and if you pick up the paper or open the digital new app, it is not hard to find references to hateful Christians. When did Christians in the US become hateful people?
You won’t have to look much harder to find a common theme in the mainstream media and on social media that Trump supporters are bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic zealots that don’t know their heads from a hole in the ground. David Remnick of the New Yorker contemplates how Trump may have damaged the US and caused untold deaths from COVID-19 because he ignored science and told people not to wear masks. 3 By now, Hillary Clinton’s famous reference to Trump supporters as the “deplorables Apparently, we make up about half of the country, but who’s counting?
Christians Are Hateful
And Christians are hateful for believing the Bible. We are sliding down the proverbial slippery slope and fast. But is it really Christians that the mainstream media and many Hollywood elites are hurling insults at? Or, more likely, could it be the Christians that believe that the Bible is true are the targets of all the hatred?.” Considering that roughly nine out of 10 members of Congress identify as Christian, I think we can safely go with door number two.4 Otherwise, every member of Congress would be vilified as hateful by the press.
Trump Supporters Are Misogynistic, Homophobic, Bigots
Of course, they are. Why else would they support Trump? I don’t know, why is it ok to support a person who has a woman doing pornographic things to him while he talks on the phone to dignitaries. Because supporting pornography is ok, but supporting a helpless baby is not. Surely you follow the logic. We can look at this more later. First, back to the Christians.
Why Bible-believing Christians Get Vilified
So what is going on? Why Bible-believing Christians constantly get vilified? Well, give it a thought for a second. Why was Jesus crucified?
Its The Bible Stupid
No one wants the truth to get in the way of their contrived facts. Jesus said he was God and he brought light to a dark world. That is all it took. Because we cannot afford to have someone get in the way of what we hold so dear to us. We want to believe we are good, not sinners. John 10:31–33 (ESV)
31The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” 33The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”5
In the Bible, we are told Christians will be persecuted “12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted”.6 But do not despair because we are also told that we will inherit the kingdom of Heaven. Specifically, it says “10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”7 We are also told there will be false prophets in Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”8
I would not presume to know if Congress is filled with false prophets, but one could wonder. Many say they are Christian, but you also say they don’t believe in the Bible. Maybe not in so many words, but it is implied. For example, if one in ten Congress members are Christian and believe the Bible, how could they say abortion should be allowed? Argue all you want that a fetus is not a baby, but we are also killing babies born alive, and it is legal.
Why Do So Many People think Poorly Of Trump Supporters?
If it gets in the way of what your preconceptions of the truth are, it must be wrong. It’s pretty simple when you think about it. It’s that pesky truth again. I will also admit his personality did not help but why did the mainstream media make it their mission to crush him?
Again, will say it is because the truth gets in the way of their facts. The mainstream media could not give Trump credit for anything. The economy was strong, unemployment at one of the lowest levels ever. In fact, unemployment among blacks was the lowest ever. But those truths got in the say of the mainstream media’s preconceived notion of facts.
Science is what the media hangs their hat on. We must follow science above all else. But wait, wasn’t it science that once thought it was a good idea to perform lobotomies on people they deemed mentally unhealthy. You would not find a reputable scientist advocating that now.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, reputable doctors were on TV telling us masks would not help. But then they said they will help. Science is fallible but to say so would be blasphemy.
Civil War Is Inevitable
If people cannot find a way to come together, civil war is going to happen. Why you ask. Well, mark my words on this one. If Trump supporters start demonstrating and damaging property, it will be the vilest, horrific thing to happen in decades. Nevermind that progressive Democrats were doing exactly that and getting away with it.
And if Trump supporters attempt to take over a neighborhood and call it an autonomous zone, there will be an outcry. It will not be tolerated and the autonomous zones will be shut down before they get started.
If you doubt there will be no tolerance for Trump supporters just look at the news today. Already, world leaders are condemning the people who were violent at the Capital. 9 Most people are accusing Trump supporters. Where was the outrage and concern when progressive Democrats were taking over cities and destroying businesses everywhere? It was nowhere. The only concern was the government being too violent and aggressive against the protesters.
So yes, this will lead to a civil war. At least it will be characterized as a civil war. Because that is how the media will portray it and people will believe it.
There may or may not be a civil war in the near future. I don’t know. But I can tell you you the United States will fall. Just like the Roman Empire and the Soviet Union.
We the people will guarantee it.
