ATLANTA, June 1, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Evangelist Alveda C. King:
Last night I made a huge mistake and broke a cardinal rule of mine. While I should have been sleeping, I read a post about a weird anti-woman diatribe against Ivanka Trump. My mind was still reeling over the Rosanne debacle. The grim reaper of social divisiveness was at work big time.
All of the media attention - television, film, radio and social media - to the emotional tirades and strife filled content (intentional and unintentional) is currently jamming frequencies of healing, reconciliation and unity.
On our radio show Changing Your Community Broadcast, my friend and cohost Emmanuel Boose makes some good points. We should not fan the flames of anarchy. Also, selective judgment is fake justice. If you're going to clean house, be thorough. Talk about draining the swamp...
Can we PLEASE take a step back from political enmity and emotional tirades; stop taking the stealthy anti-Christ bait of strife and division; and try to love each other, not as color blind but as One Race/One Blood human beings?
Yes. I broke my own rule and ignored my own advice against consuming inflammatory verbal and visual garbage when I should be sleeping or praying:
Philippians 4: 6-7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
My rule: In the ongoing effort to overcome evil with good, it's wise to avoid intake of a dietary overabundance of vitriol and divisive media driven cerebral dishes at odd hours. In other words, flooding your senses with negative and inflammatory reports early in the morning or late at night is bad for your overall health.
We are facing sensory diarrhea. Are we becoming so anti-everything that we are disrupting all that is good about humanity? Yes, people are dying prematurely. Yes, people are suffering. Yes, we need help. But devouring each other in strife won't solve our problems. We need a spiritual antacid.
We need a good dose of reconciliation. It won't hurt to take a bit of time and smell the roses. Promises are being kept from the White House (which lest we forget was built with free labor by our African ancestors).
Across the nation job rates are up, lower tax rates boost families and the economy, lower regulations stimulate growth, no longer punishing business, babies in the womb are safer, (in)justice overhaul is in progress. Let's continue to Pray for America.
