A MERRY HEART IS GOOD LIKE A MEDICINE

Those are the words of a Jew named Solomon, and they are still true.

America desperately needs this medicine. Hate and rage are taking over the hearts of Americans, and the sad thing is that the President, using his Twitter account, is driving the hate just as eagerly as Maxine Waters, AOC, and Bernie Sanders.

Thus, the average American sees and hears the hate from CNN and from the White House. Famous people compete to see if they can out hate other Americans. Hate is preached from church pulpits just as eagerly as from university professors.

This WILL destroy America if it goes on unchecked. You can make a difference. Will you make a vow to stop hating and find ways to be happy? 

Don't tell me you cannot be happy until all the evil and ugliness is gone. That will never happen. It is up to YOU to decide if you will be part of the solution or continue to be part of the problem by feasting daily on evil reports and the rage of other people.

Here is Eddie Jaku, a man with plenty of adversaries in his past whom he could rage at and hate. But, Eddie consciously decided one day to abandon his sour spirit and vow to be happy and help others be happy.



If you are only content when you are raging and roaring with hate for other people, you are a dead man walking in the dark. You are NO USE to the rest of the world, and you are no use to yourself. You will die an angry person, and no one will miss you.

1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Do you and I remind anyone of Jesus?

Final thought: I suspect that 90% of hate is caused, not by righteous indignation, but by fear. If you would sit still and medicate about the people, groups, and cultures you hate, you will find that at the root of that hate is fear of something about them.

Get rid of the fear, stop believing the propaganda, block all your alleged "friends" on Facebook who post fear bombs, and see what happens.

For starters, can you name even one politician who does not fan the fires of fear? They know it sells well and moves people to hate. Teach a man to hate a Republican, and he will vote Democrat, and visa versa. Politicians are some of the worst fear mongers in modern society.

But, preachers are guilty of teaching us to fear. They paint mind pictures of the wicked so vividly that we stop seeing the wicked as candidates for salvation and start fearing and avoiding them. After all, those nasty girls with the see through blouses are just too wicked to hand a Gospel tract to, right?

Here is a preacher who uses raw fear to panic the listener. Notice how even the music is calculated, with its hammering heartbeat percussion, to panic the listener.

What can fear do to you if you let it go unchecked. As I write, the news sources report that Jeffrey Epstein, the famous pedophile, just hanged himself in jail. 

Why? 

Answer: Fear

How are you living today..... who are you listening to today..... where are you going today..... which will most certainly land you in a state of fear?

And, once you can put a name of someone on that fear, who will you then hate?

It starts getting very practical, right?

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Are you the most frightened of the fact that you must love if you want to escape fear and hate?

I don't write these blog posts to give you the warm fuzzies. Thus, some hard questions that you and I need to answer honestly.
