To the Editor:

Our national politics seem like a professional football game where one team is playing tackle and the other is playing touch. Announcers are extremely biased. The refs penalize only one side and don't care what fans think.

So, what do we as a nation do if both parties don't play by an established set of rules? Our founding fathers realized without a God centered basis, our system will not work.

Please remember that no one is the enemy. Satan has been deceiving humans for a long time and is very good at it. We may be very near the end when God sends Jesus back. Revelation 12:12 warns "Woe to the inhabiters of the earth for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows he has but a short time." We are here on earth for a very limited time; James 4:14 “For what is your life? It is a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.”

The time we spend here on earth is just a proving ground for eternity. You will spend it with God or in a place prepared for the devil and his angels. The choice is up to us. What we do with and for his Son Jesus determines your eternal reward.

You owe it to yourself to take some time to know where you will spend eternity! Hebrews 9:27: “As it appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

There is good news, 1John 5:11-13” "And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has life; and he that does not have the Son of God has not life.

Put your confidence in Jesus and his atoning blood shed when he died. Don't put your confidence in man! Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thy heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths."
