The Government Can’t Save You

The government cannot fix what is the people’s problem.

The government can’t make people understand that the freedom we scream for is already here. We scream for freedom, but we don’t recognize that we already have it. Compare North America with any non-democratic country run by a dictator. Appreciate the freedom we do have. 

In spite of that freedom, others seem determined to take it away. They randomly shoot people they don’t even know. They use racist slurs to anyone and everyone.  They call out death threats to people they don’t like. Comedians are physically attacked on stage because audience members ‘didn’t like the jokes.’

We have become like wild animals in the jungle, consumed with the “I” of ourselves.

Shame, embarrassment, humiliated? Yes, I feel all of those today and so should you.

“But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward. But my people have not listened to me or even tried to hear. They have been stubborn and sinful—even worse than their ancestors.

 “Tell them all this, but do not expect them to listen. Shout out your warnings, but do not expect them to respond. Say to them, ‘This is the nation whose people will not obey the Lord their God and who refuse to be taught. Truth has vanished from among them; it is no longer heard on their lips. For the Lord has rejected and forsaken this generation that has provoked his fury.’ (From Jeremiah 7:24-29)
