Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV) "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."
Proverbs 27:17 (KJV) "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
Someone forwarded a graphic to me that got to me to realize just how far America has fallen.
The graphic stated:
1944: 18 year olds stormed enemy beaches, parachuted behind enemy lines, and charged into German machine gun fire.
2018: 18 year olds need safe spaces, blankies, bubbles, coloring books, gun free zones, and counseling for “ptsd” caused by opposing views and offensive words…
I knew many of those 18-year-olds who fought to preserve America’s freedom. My dad was one of those, enlisting in the US Navy in 1940 at the age of 18. He signed up for 6-years active duty and was stationed in the Pacific when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, the event that forced the United States to enter World War II.
Dad saw the battles at Bougainville, Saipan and the Solomon Islands. He admitted that most the young men and even the older men present at those battles were afraid, fearing for their lives, but their patriotism and sense of duty to protect America was stronger.
They were willing to rush into danger for the sake of their country. They were willing to sacrifice time away from their family and friends, along with the comforts of home. They willingly gave up their warm beds for wet and dirty foxholes. They willingly gave up mom’s home cooking for military rations, which many compared to dogfood. They willingly gave up the smiles, laughter and support at home for the grimaces, crying and discouragement of war because they loved America.
Then there are the same aged young people who in 2016, whined and cried because Hillary Clinton lost. They walked out of classrooms and sat on the lawns and sidewalks where their instructors brought them hot chocolate, crayons and chalk. This generation is lost and angry if their cell phone dies. They protest if anyone dare says anything negative about them, about their liberal idols and about their liberal ideologies.
Rather than feeling grateful for what America has to offer, as those 18-year-olds who did in 1944, these 18-year-olds feel they are entitled to everything, regardless if they work for it or not. They feel that everyone owes them everything, which is why they are so gullible into believing the lying promises being made by socialists like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and most Democrats.
Instead of fighting for what’s right, they whine and cry for the right to do the opposite. In 1944, those young men fought to protect their traditional families and today’s young men fight to destroy traditional families.
In 1944, those young men fought for the right to preserve the freedom of speech and religion for everyone while today’s young men fight to suppress the freedom of speech and religion of anyone who doesn’t agree with them.
The scariest part is that many of those young men and women who were 18 just a few years ago, will be voting for the first time in 2020 and you can be assured that many of them won’t be voting to protect families, freedom of speech and religion or out of patriotic duty. Instead, they’ll be voting for the socialist Democrats because they have been brainwashed by 12-years in the public education system.
In 1944, our young men fought against socialism, fascism, and Nazism.
In 2020, our young men and women will vote for socialism and communism.
