In the United States, we have completely lost civility, moderation, humility, kindness, and love in our political discourse. Left, Right; it really doesn't matter anymore because most people are behaving poorly on both sides of the aisle.
Most people just believe their side is completely virtuous, on the side of the angels so to speak, while their political opponents are vile, untrustworthy, and deserve to be punished, and eventually likely eliminated. That's how the history of overly contentious politics has generally gone in this world. Angry words and accusations become war cries for destruction. Contention and hatred are the order of the day now. We can't continue like this anymore if we want to maintain a unified nation.
Matthew 12:25 -
"...Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand..."
We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ, His only begotten son, died for all of us. He died for Republicans, He died for Democrats. He died for liberals, conservatives, libertarians, Christians, non-Christians, black people, white people, males, females, immigrants and natural-born citizens alike. We are all children of the same God, and it's high time we begin to act like it.
It's not too late to turn the ship around and find common ground between all parties.
We will show how the gospel of Jesus Christ can return us to civility, unity, and a functioning Democratic-Republic, as God intended us to be from the beginning. However, even if you are not a believer, there is still more that unites us than divides us, and we can still find common ground. All for one, and one for all is a refrain we should all be aching to return to, before we destroy ourselves and everything we all hold dear.
