David Brooks Summarizes The BOistan Problem

Trump’s Enablers Will Finally Have to Take a Stand - The New York Times:

When you lash out at someone in anger, you have an extreme tendency to unwittingly admit the truth of your own soul. It tends to be unavoidable. Here is Brooks on Trump:
"He is a slave to his own pride, compelled by a childlike impulse to lash out at anything that threatens his fragile identity. He appears to have no ability to experience reverence, which is the foundation for any capacity to admire or serve anything bigger than self, to want to learn about anything beyond self, to want to know and deeply honor the people around you."
What a wonderful statement on the human condition and the condition of man in BOistan. "Slaves to our own pride". Jesus diagnosed PRIDE as being at the center of both the original fall and the ongoing nature of fallen man. So, we all -- like Brooks in this column, lash out like children and what we see to be a threat to our fragile identities, unless our identity is in Christ.

America was a nation "under God". It revered God, our Founders, the Constitution and the Family.

BOistan is a nation without reverence. Each persons own truth is supposedly "sacred" and to be revered, which means in reality that only the truth of "The Party" (TP-D) is actually to be revered and admired, or at least submitted to. Brooks wants TP to be revered, and anyone that doesn't bow to TP must be destroyed ...
You either stand with a man whose very essence is an insult to basic decency, or you don’t.
At one time in a country known as America, the fallen nature of ALL was an "insult to basic decency", but all were worthy of redemption by Christ's Blood.  We were and are ALL filthy sinners, thus "insults to basic decency", but we are also all precious in that God loves us and wants to save us. We were a nation "under God", with a limited government and a shared morality.

In BOistan, 60 million innocent babes in their mothers wombs have been declared to be "unfit for life" and "decently"? slaughtered.  When man takes such power to himself, the entire concept of "decency" is destroyed and replaced by POWER. Brooks believes that POWER  actually IS "decency". When you replace God, you have to -- power is all that remains.
There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame.
Speaking out for God's decency has already become a cause for shame before our children and grandchildren, and many Christians have already paid a HORRIBLE price for their faith. Defending the Constitution, the right of the unborn to live, the right of prayer, the right to honor marriage as between a man and a woman, the right to understand humanity as male and female -- all these and more have been declared "immoral before TP", and those who hold to these timeless values in the face of  the power of TP are regularly shamed by the educational and media system.

Since they are shamed by education and media, they are often shamed by their own children and grandchildren who can't stand up to the deluge of the left wing machine. Each time we are shamed we pray harder that there will come a time when they come back to the love of God and we will see them in eternity.

TP has indoctrinated the young to dishonor their parents and grandparents if they refuse to bow to the "truth" of TP vs the Truth of Christ. The government of TP is declared to be "god" in the stead of God. TP breaks the 4th commandment to "honor your father and your mother", with "shame your parents into supporting TP, or at least into keeping silent under threat of losing contact with you". What a friend Satan has in TP,

BOistan stands as a monument that "power" and "decency" only go together in the hand of God. Christians pray to God, not BO nor Brooks.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
In BOistan it is the duty of all who obey Christ to do whatever we can to oppose the immoral and ALWAYS highly imperfect government.

Trump is certainly an imperfect vehicle, however compared to the alternative, he is a Rolls Royce!
