There is a liberal amount of bitterness in the United States these days, especially since the election of Donald J. Trump as our president. Why? It’s due in great part because liberal Democrats in the world of American politics suffer from the same spiritual condition as the rest of humanity in that we are all born with an original sin nature.
One way a sin nature manifests itself is through bitterness. Today’s liberals are extremely poor losers and therefore have become a very bitter group. This group includes liberal politicians, liberal mainstream media news people, and liberalism supporters in general.
It’s really not surprising that radical liberals are bitter people. Unlike the Christian population of America, secular liberals have in large numbers rejected a faith in God and also in the liberating forgiveness of sins found through a belief in God’s living Son, Jesus Christ, as the “one and only” Savior from all of our sins.
Liberals are seemingly only happy when they are in a position of governing control over masses of people; thereby making it possible to force their radical liberal ideas and ways upon others—even though their leftist extremism is most often embraced by only a small percentage of our society.
But their viewpoints are presented in such a way (with the help of the liberal mainstream media), to make it appear as though they are speaking for a majority of American citizens. As we all should know by now, deception is another favorite tactic radical liberals love to employ in order to achieve control over the American populace, as many as they can indoctrinate with their often twisted propaganda.
When in control, liberals are a very prideful, self-centered, arrogant, boastful, pompous, and overall egotistical bunch. When not in control liberals cannot accept their rejection as being at all possible; so their bitterness evolve into other sinful behaviors, exhibited in such undesirable and ugly ways as wrath, anger, clamor, vilification and malice toward any person or group opposing them.
The Bible speaks about bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, vilification, and malice:
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and tender-hearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ, God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:31-32)
“Do not let the sun set upon your anger, and do not give the devil a foothold.”
This is great advice for all of us to heed, but it seems radical liberals do not believe in the old adage of “Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.” This is not just any old adage, but is actually Scriptural biblical instruction for us to follow and which we should apply to our lives in order to make our lives better.
Let us review some of the biblical proverbs from chapters 10 through 15 of Proverbs that warn of the “folly and foolishness” of certain human behaviors and ways of thinking; all of which the Lord views as sinful wickedness.
The following are just some of the proverbial examples of behavior and thinking we would be wise to avoid. It’s obvious these proverbs still speak perfectly to us today. The proverbs are listed in order as found in Proverbs chapters 10-15:

When reading through this list of proverbs, think about the bitterness found in the public speaking and behavior of liberals in mainstream media and the Congress ever since the election of President Donald J. Trump.
Remember, the proverbs listed above are found in the Word of God and there is nothing in the Bible that God did not want in the Bible.
It’s up to each of us as individuals to accept or reject God’s Word and godly wisdom.
Don’t you think it is time to put away bitterness and get out the Word of God?
Your decision not only affects the future of our American society, but also has everlasting and eternal consequences for you.
