As a strategic political media consultant for over 16 years, there were countless evils done against my conservative Christian candidates. The news media being liberal and slanting the news or writing fake news against someone who doesn’t share their same beliefs was not invented in the last election cycle.
Lies by Democratic Party candidates, lies by the media, dirty tricks, and vote stealing I have experienced it all first-hand. We were fortunate to win most of the races of those who hired us. One thing that I learned over those years is this: Evil eventually self-destructs. It makes strategic mistakes that cost its minions elections, loses empires, and if we read the prophets and Revelation, evil loses in the end.
Romans 12:21 says, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Ephesians 6:11 says, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Further explaining in verse 12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6 goes on to instruct us to put on each piece of the armor that we may stand, pray with all perseverance, and finally to speak boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel. This is our strategic game plan to overcome the evil of those godless communists and anarchists who wish to tear down our nation.
Since losing their fourth special election-all of which was conducted with vulgar, hate-filled, and accusatory rhetoric, replete with lies and fake news-Hollywood radicals are beginning to turn on their political arm—the Democratic Party. Moreover, the visceral language is continuing from the most radical haters.
I am hearing that mainstream Democrats are starting to turn-off to this narrative. While they are died in the wool Democrats and will vote for any stooge the party puts up, they may just stay home because they don’t want to be associated with the hate. We may be reaching a point where the lack of civility will have a rebounding effect and increase the negatives against those running on the “resistance” ticket.
This is the basis for my encouraging you to engage with people, especially those you know who may not agree with you. Gently query from a position of fairness when they make a statement, by asking open-ended questions beginning with “Do you think…” In your dialogue, promote civility as the better path.
Show others the Christ in you through your kind way of expressing that the current narrative does nothing to solve any problem, except to bully and demean others. Lead them to reasonable conclusions by appealing to their sense of fairness and decency. We have an opportunity to overcome evil and counter this coup because decent people are beginning to reject the violent dialogue.
Have a Blessed and powerful day!
