The problem we see before us -- Republicans, Democrats, Roe v. Wade, LGBTQ, political correctness, etc. -- is really none of the above.

It is, as John Bunyan, a prodigious sinner found in prison, where he wrote the book "Pilgrim's Progress" and spoke of "Vanity Fair,'' which is typical of the world today, where most are out for themselves, and care little about others, and John Newton, who chained Africans in his slave ships, and thought naught of sacrificing them to the angry waves, the stormy waters.

But God got a hold of him and he became a Christian pastor and wrote the song, "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saves a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.''

What I am trying to say is no one seems to care about God today. But the Bible, written over a period of 1,500 years, by 40 different writers, led by God, tells us what is real today, the Word of God. He is more important than either political party.

Yes, we need change today, but the change is to realize God himself, in the person of Jesus, the Messiah, suffered the awful pains of death on the Roman cross, taking upon Himself, the sins of all mankind, to save by His atonement. And He rose from the grave to give us eternal life and love for one another.
