Group Think: Unvaccinated Americans are Villians?

CNN host Don Lemon ignorantly urges Americans to curse fellow Americans who have not been vaccinated.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

Public education has infected our people with false histories and Marxist ideology: critical race theory, the 1619 project, and transgenderism, to name a few.

President Reagan famously observed: “The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

What would Jesus Do?

Answer: “Bless those who persecute you [who cause you harm or hardship]; bless and do not curse [them].” Romans 12:14 AMP

What do those verbs mean, bless and curse? James, the half-brother to Jesus and author of the book of James in the New Testament, gives us a major clue. In James 3:10 (AMP) he writes, “Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. These things, my brothers, should not be this way [for we have a moral obligation to speak in a manner that reflects our fear of God and profound respect for His precepts].”

Blessings and cursing are things we say. They are sentences, selective words with the power to either honor God or to dishonor Him.

In Luke 6:27-28 (AMP), Jesus instructs us, “But I say to you who hear [Me and pay attention to My words]: Love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies, [make it a practice to] do good to those who hate you, bless and show kindness to those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

Instead of angry responses to the ignorant bleats of ‘talking heads’ on TV, let’s entreat the God of the Universe, to reveal the truth to them, to save them. One divine revelation can change the world.

Blessing someone who curses you is contrary to human nature, but if we truly want good outcomes we must follow God’s way.

By the way, I am ‘preaching’ to myself.
