WHY WOULD YOU WANT THESE PEOPLE RUNNING OUR LIVES?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Theodore R. Davis’s illustration of President Johnson’s impeachment trial in the Senate, published in Harper’s Weekly. (from here)

As the picture above reminds us, we have been through this before. After the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, President Andrew Johnson proved to be a disappointing replacement. So Republicans, solidly in the majority, contrived charges against Johnson so they could replace him.

What about now? Here (speaker.gov) is a copy of a memo Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent her caucus. It includes these words:

The facts are uncontested: that the President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests.

The weak response to these hearings has been, “Let the election decide.”  That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections. (from here (speaker.gov))

President Donald Trump responded to Pelosi…

REMEMBERING THE LESSON OF THE PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins (1822) by William Blake, Tate Gallery. (from here)

The outcomes of the 2019 elections just concluded in Virginia were not what conservatives hoped and worked for. The State House turned liberal with the assurance that the 2018-19 agenda posed by progressives in Richmond will now be enacted in 2020 to the detriment of the populous. Some of these issues include gun control, abortion to term and beyond equal to infanticide, transgenderism and sex education in the schools under the guise of non-discrimination, and decreased parental rights. Additional legislation will involve increased taxes and road tolls, passage of ERA, immigration expansion and more.

What happened that turned this election on its head? Candidates campaigned feverishly and got out their word about the issues. Or did they? ‘Bland’ topics like traffic and school trailers were issues both sides pretty well agreed on. But…

ARE YOU PART OF THE PROBLEM?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Consider the importance that the Apostle Paul attached to preaching.

Romans 10:14-17 Good News Translation (GNT)

14 But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed? 15 And how can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? As the scripture says, “How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!” 16 But not all have accepted the Good News. Isaiah himself said, “Lord, who believed our message?” 17 So then, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ.

How do we come to know God? Someone shares His Word with us. How do we teach our children what we believe? We teach them, and we choose what they learn and who teaches them.

What is happening now? Our government…

IS COMMONSENSE ENOUGH?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

What is commonsense? Well, here is what the dictionary says.

common sense
: sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts
She’s very smart but doesn’t have a lot of common sense.
rely on common sense for personal safety

Apparently, commonsense is just the minimal amount of good sense most of us have, but what is good sense? Well, here is the applicable definition.

sense
6a: capacity for effective application of the powers of the mind as a basis for action or response : INTELLIGENCE
b: sound mental capacity and understanding typically marked by shrewdness and practicality

also : agreement with or satisfaction of such power
this decision makes sense

Notice that the definition of “sense” here is secular. Does “practicality” address the ability to discern good from evil? No.

Supposedly, people suddenly started using the word “commonsense” the way we do today in…
