Say Goodbye To The Confederate Flag

Two loyal FHG followers’ commented on my post, Say Goodbye To The Stars And Bars (the flag for the Confederate states during the Civil War) last week.  Both their comments compelled me to write this follow-up post.

Here’s what my dear blogging buddy Butch Dean wrote in his comment:

“Removing symbols will not change bigotryanything…it would be like putting band-aids on cancer. The core problem is the need for heart surgery to cut out the hate and bigotry…only Jesus can do that.”

He is exactly right.

Ridding our landscape of symbols of hate and racial discrimination might help keep America beautiful. But heart surgery by the Great Physician is the only remedy for the hate and bigotry and gun violence prevailing in our country.

We can’t legislate it away. We can’t wish it away. We can’t stop it. We can’t ignore it. And we can’t  hope it will go away.

We are powerless to control it all.

We are all at the mercy of Almighty God. Only God can heal our land. He can heal it. He can allow us to continue our downward spiral into apathy and anarchy. Or He can say to Jesus, “Go and get my children.”

I wish it were time. I’m ready to go home. How about you?
