I am thinking on things that are TRUE and the tragic truth of the state of the Union.
Tyranny has once again risen in our day.
Who will stand and be the Light of Christ for those who live in darkness?
These are words written in Vienna Prelude about the overthrow of Democracy in Germany:
"Why abandon truth because it's out of favor? Hold on to truth long enough and, without a doubt, the world will turn and someone will see you've got it and ask if there's enough to share! You'll hand it out with joy, and there will be more and more to go around... Most of the darkness in this world is due to truth being out of favor. And folks being scared to death to stand up, hold up the light, and speak the truth about the Lord for fear they'll be out of favor too. So we betray the light for safety's sake. Hide the fire inside a clay pot. Prefer the darkness. The blindness. Because it's safer. You don't get noticed that way. The Light shines again when someone brave-- it only takes one –stands up and says, 'Here it is! Here's the Truth!'"
