I am sickened President Obama used the occasion of the memorial service in Dallas for five of that cities slain police to once again pontificate a distorted view of American history and a deceptive line of reasoning on racial divisions. The president is either entirely self-deluded or is what I believe him to be, a 21st century Pharisaical politician who has used his own racist prejudices and views of the United States to enflame racial tensions.
None of us choose our birth family; however, everyone should understand our choice of friends reflect who and what we are. President Obama’s network of friends and confidants (Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, and too many others to name) are racists, bigoted, provocative race baiters who threaten our communities, cities, and nation with anarchy.
The president’s rhetoric at Tuesday’s memorial service does not hide the reality that, when it comes to a love for this nation and using his platform to bring reconciliation and healing, “The emperor wears no clothes.”

I am sickened by this President’s penchant of marching in the blood of the slain to make political points!
Call me cynical, but I am becoming of the opinion some of the tragedies assailing our nation seem to come on the heels of bad political news for the President and his party (i.e. Hillary Clinton’s email scandals, her shameless, undeniable lies to the American public, the spineless FBI Director’s “investigation”, and the Attorney General’s dereliction of duty).
This White House seems to practice the political philosophy of Rahm Emanuel, former chief of staff for the president and currently the mayor of bloody Chicago, who has stated, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
In my opinion, the President has spent 7.5 years race baiting the black community and, instead of the peace and unity he promised, he has precipitated the ethnic, class, and race hating our nation is experiencing. The president has repeatedly assailed the character of our law enforcement, making politically charged statements before there was evidence to support his assertions of racial bias.
Are there “bad cops” in blue? Absolutely; however, it is reckless and irresponsible to assail the character of the men and women in blue when they risk their lives everyday upholding the law.
Mr. President, if you want to be a crusader for right and justice, instead of attacking law enforcement, tell the fools who refuse to obey the instructions of police officers and resist arrest they are doing so at the risk of their lives.

This Sunday morning Hillsdale Baptist Church will begin an eschatological series titled “The Signs of the Second Coming of Christ and the End of the World”. Our focus for the next several weeks will be Matthew 24-25, a passage of scripture traditionally referred to as “The Olivet Discourse”. This Sunday morning’s message is titled, “The Coming Storm” and is an introduction for our prophetic study of the last days.
My friend, the parallel between the LORD’s prophetic description of the signs that would mark His Second Coming and end of the world and world events unfolding in our day is undeniable. There is a revolution underway in our world, a growing spirit of rebellion, a hatred of law and authority, a vacuum of leadership, and an abandonment of moral principles that precipitates the cry of the world for peace.
Sadly, the church, the very institution God entrusted with the one and only answer for sin and guilt, Jesus Christ, is compromised, tainted by sin and its testimony marred by eroding convictions. My friend, the Bible still has the answer for hope and God’s call to His people to be holy is unchanged.
I invite you to join us at Hillsdale this Sunday as we look at our world through the prism of God’s revelation!
