Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.   Heb 11:1

   Revisionism is the newest rage in America.  If we don't like a period in history, or a historical figure, we will revise their contribution, change it, remove it, or simply ignore it.  Tearing down statues, defacing buildings, burning flags, or screaming and ranting do not change facts.  We can tell children that periods in history didn't happen, or should be forgotten, but that does not mean that truths cannot be learned from things we dislike, or with which we disagree.
   When totalitarian regimes throughout history have taken over countries, they have all acted the same way... destroy history and "we will write a new story."  Except the old story keeps popping up. Stalin and Lenin tore down all the statues of the czars, renamed cities, and turned old royal palaces into government buildings full of gray faced bureaucrats.  Hitler re-created a new reality and murdered millions of people in Europe to fit his "new world order."  Yet, it was the very Jews Hitler tried to eradicate that searched the world over to bring escaped Nazis to justice.  China was radically altered by Mao tse tung's Cultural Revolution where millions were killed, imprisoned, or sent to reprogramming camps...yet history keeps intruding...like the famed Emperor's terracotta army...showing the Chinese people rich history.
   The new "cancel culture" is not new at all.  Social media has become the updated Joseph Goebbels Nazi propaganda machine.  Uniformity of thought is revered and no public figure, movie star, news personality or commercial enterprise dare disagree. You will be harassed, called terrible names, and may even be physically assaulted, or fired from your job.  Today anything or anyone we disagree with cannot be listened to, discussed, or they are simply shouted down.  Welcome to the new Nazis!  The Nazis under Hitler harassed, beat up, drove out, or murdered their opposition until the German people acquiesced to the unthinkable...the murder and incineration of millions of people. 
    The uniqueness of the American experience has millions of people worldwide lining up to get into this country.  Let's state what needs to be said...this nation is far from perfect.  Our record in many areas, including race relations, treatment of Native Americans, and public corruption is often very bad.  But this is still the best country in the whole world where there are millions of immigrant success stories and amazing miracle discoveries, inventions, and innovations still happening every day.
     The hypocrisy of the news media allowing politicians who they agree with, to get away with being part of the problem for 25 or 30 years.  Often these pious new found problem solvers are coming up with solutions 20 years overdue.  And the media applauds these people that now "really" care.  Though the media and the Hollywood Elite tell us on the 24/7 news cycle how horrible we are and how its okay to tear the country apart...beware...they are insulated and isolated in their ivory towers and gated mansions.  They hypocritically hire private security companies and bodyguards and tell you that "we" don't need police.
     If we ever needed to pray as a church it is now.  If you don't know what to pray, pray in the Holy Spirit...but pray!
"Come now, and let us reason together," says the LORD, "Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool."  (Isaiah 1:18)
