God’s Christmas Gifts to America

Yesterday a women on the Electoral College was telling a commentator about how she was receiving death threats if she would follow the law of her state by casting her electoral vote for Donald Trump. As I pondered the kind of nation that we have become, for the most part against the will of the American people, this question came to mind that I would like to ask all of us.

Which America do you want?

·        The America of the Left in which people make death threats in an attempt to subvert the outcomes of fair elections or the America of the Right that accepts them?

·        The America of the Left in which a President uses his phone and pen to overrule the Constitution and rule of law or the America of the Right in which the law is upheld?

·        The America of the Left in which activist judges overturn election results when they do not agree with their liberal agenda or the America of the Right in which judges observe their constitutional roles?

·        The America of the Left in which we must bend over backwards to accommodate Muslim sensibilities while running roughshod over Christian ones, or the America of the Right in which the president-elect wishes us Merry Christmas?

·        The America of the Left in which university campuses are ruled by totalitarian administrations that punish students not espousing their liberal ideology, or the America of the Right in which students can discuss differing ideas freely?

·        The America of the Left in which students potentially exposed to ideas with which they disagree and “microaggressions” are provided with “triggers” to warn them and “safe spaces” in which to hide, or the America of the Right in which students are taught to stand up and defend their positions?

·        The America of the Left in which schoolchildren are taught to celebrate homosexuality or the America of the Right where the Bible is read and children are led in prayer?

·        The America of the Left in which biological men are given entrance into the shower rooms of girls with total disregard for the modesty and protection of women, or the America of the Right in which people use bathrooms and shower rooms corresponding to their biological gender?

·        The America of the Left that spends irresponsibly, mounting up trillions in debt, or the America of the Right that pursues prosperity?

·        The America of the Left in which government expands exponentially and the ruling class imposes its will on the people, or the America of the Right in which small government is responsive to the will of the people?

·        The America of the Left that makes its primary solution to poverty government handouts, or the America of the Right that makes its primary solution to poverty jobs?

·        The America of the Left that decimates the middle class, leaving a large underclass and a handful of very wealthy, or the America of the Right that promotes the expansion of the middle class.

·        The America of the Left that brings in foreigners to take American jobs and forces those being replace to train them, or the America of the Right that protects American workers?

·        The America of the Left that leaves our borders unprotected, encouraging illegal immigrants to enter and to be supported by hard-working Americans, or the America of the Right that protects its national sovereignty?

·        The America of the Left that frees criminal illegal immigrants to rape and murder American citizens, or the America of the Right that deports them?

·        The America of the Left that engenders division of race, gender, income, and religion, or the America of the Right that seeks unity and peace?

·        The America of the Left in which rioters are glorified and policemen are vilified and murdered, or the America of the Right that respects those maintaining law and order?

·        The America of the Left that opts to send women into combat, or the America of the Right that fights to protect them?

·        The America of the Left that insists on radical rules of engagement responsible for the killing of many American soldiers, or the America of the Right that cares for the welfare of our brave people in uniform?

·        The America of the Left that has become militarily weak and disrespected, or the America of the Right that advances peace through American strength?

·        The America of the Left that prohibits the development of our oil, natural gas, and coal resources, making us dependent on foreign nations, or the America of the Right that advocates for the development and use of clean fossil fuel and resulting energy independence?

·        The America of the Left that permits the killing of unborn and being-born babies, or the America of the Right that protects them from being murdered?

·        The America of the Left that promotes sexual promiscuity and infidelity, or the America of the Right that advances family values?

·        The America of the Left in which the entertainment industry glorifies every sort of indecent language, promiscuity, and violence, or the America of the Right that advocates for entertainment in which parents, religion, and authority are respected and decency is maintained?

For any rational person the choice is obvious, which leads to two conclusions, both related to the Christmas season.

First, God has blessed America with a very wonderful Christmas gift by deposing Barack Obama and terminating his efforts to fundamentally deform America by implementing his Leftist agenda, and by preventing Hillary Clinton from following in his footsteps, and instead gifting us with Donald Trump as president-elect, who is committed to make America great again and who greets the American people with “Merry Christmas.” Lord, this Christmas we thank you.

Second, the America of the Right, the one described above that we love and cherish, is the outgrowth of our Christian heritage. Jesus makes all the difference in nations and cultures, and it has been His Word and influence that made America great. Ultimately the greatness of our nation can be traced back to that manger in Bethlehem on that first Christmas day. Jesus is God’s ultimate Christmas gift to America.

This reality leads us to this concluding thought. I am convinced that Donald Trump will do all within his power to make America great again, to restore the America of the Right. However, the accomplishment of that task will also require the reestablishment of Christian culture in America. It will require God’s people purifying their own hearts and lives, praying and working for revival, and functioning as salt and light in our society. This Christmas I would challenge all of us to commit ourselves to the task of returning America to its Christian roots, and in so doing standing and working with Donald Trump in his efforts to make America great again.
