A Time To Heal?

Time Magazine has debuted their "A Time To Heal" cover featuring former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen Kamala Harris.

The debut post  reads: "President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Sen. Kamala Harris usher in a new era."

However, the remainder of the Tweet sounds more like a "Knights of the Round Table" episode than a "new era" healing.

Is it really a time to heal?

And what does the radical Left mean by "healing?"

Be informed, not misled.

After premiering their feature cover with Biden and Harris, the Time Magazine tweet immediately links to an article by Charlotte Alter that explains "How Joe Biden Won The White House."

Alter writes, 

"The only thing more powerful than a dragon is a dragon slayer. For four years [President] Donald Trump's penchant for division and chaos was the dominate force in American life. In the end after a long and excruciating battle , it was vanquished by Joe Biden's promise of decency, unity and national healing,"

She writes extensively how Biden outsmarted everyone, and although it wasn't the "easy landslide many Democrats had hoped for: Trump was defeated."

She then notes this: "But Trumpism seems more entrenched than ever in the GOP."

How does healing come when the dragon slayers are in hot pursuit?

So it isn't just Trump they want to slay, it's all those who agree with him on fundamental beliefs---the "deplorables", the people who cling to their guns and Bible, most recently Joe Biden referred to Trump supporters as "chumps."

The FOX hit comedy Family Guy imagined President Trump, his wife Melania, and Vice President Mike Pence hanging themselves in prison in an episode that aired just after Tuesday's presidential election.

The episode features Peter asking, "G**, can you believe Trump hung himself in prison?"

Later in the episode, Brian is reading the newspaper where he reveals that Mike Pence hung himself after coming out as a homosexual.

He says, "G**, I can't believe Mike Pence came out of the closet just before he hung himself in prison."

Peter's friend, Quagmire, is also seen reading the newspaper where he announces the death of Melania Trump back in her home country of Slovenia.

He says "G**, I can't believe Melania was deported to Slovenia then hung herself in a European prison."

Family Guy is not the only FOX show to depict President Trump's allies hanging themselves.

In an April 2017 episode, then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer was seen hanging in the briefing room on an episode of The Simpsons.

I know, it's called political satire. But in context, is it really satire?

Hanging or healing?

Under the guise of compassion, Michelle Obama tweeted Saturday that Democrats should reach out to Trump voters even though they supported "lies, hate, chaos, and division."

The message underscored the difficulties Americans will have coming together after a bruising presidential campaign---as well as Obama's own brand of divisiveness and condescension.

In a string of tweets, she ended with this: 

"Let's remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We've got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us."

Yesterday Pastor Jack Graham, pastor of the 40,000-member Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas tweeted this: 

"Theological progressivism which produces liberal Christianity is the greatest threat to America and the world. It destroys every school, institution, church it touches. This is the real battle for the future of our nation."

"Healing" really means "compromise" to the so-called religious left of the Biden's, Harris, Obama's, and too many others who name the name of Jesus Christ.

In 2016 it was Michelle Obama who famously told Democrats at their convention in Philadelphia, "When they go low, we go high."

National Public Radio (NPR) has written extensively---and glowingly---about what to expect during Biden's first 100 days in office, should he be elected.

The Washington Post says that Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders to tell the world that this country's politics have shifted and "that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities."

The takeaway--"radically different priorities."

Suggesting that now that the election is over, yet long before the legal votes have been counted properly, biblical Christians should put aside their deeply held biblical beliefs and "heal" into a radically different set of priorities, is like suggesting Abraham Lincoln have a come together summit with the KLU KLUX KLAN---before the Civil War was fought.

The culture war is real and it's spiritual more than political.

This is not a time to grow weary in well-doing and "heal" with the radical left. 

Stand fast for life, not abortion, God's model for marriage and family, not the "different priorities" of Joe Biden, the secular radical left, and the religious left.

Solomon, speaking about compromise in Proverbs 25:26 wrote: "A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Stand fast. Pray for our President. Pray for our country.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.
