Don’t ask me which it is. I don’t know. What I do know is that all of this involves two people and two families, and a whole nation.My heart cries in pain no matter who I think of or what I think of when I see this topic anywhere. And I confess, I have stayed away from it just for those reasons. What I do know is that the state of social well-being in this country is of concern to many people these day’s. Political Correctness has now gone way too far. You can not find the truth in a search engine, you can not find truth on CNBC, you can not find truth on FOX News, even blogging is a far cry from the truth. We can not tell the truth from propaganda in any form, let alone chose between the truth’s that are forced at us by biased media and politics. The truth does exist and it is an absolute truth. All of this hurts even more by the ugly presence of Hate, Fear, Anger, Revenge and the lack of LOVE!
As of April 2014 there continues to be more race generated comments and propaganda from all sides, and the most shameful part is our own political representatives push it to the limits. They are supposed to represent the people and the nation as a whole. The lies just continue… Maybe we are now a mixed nation with Christianity no longer dominate, but that does not exclude us as a nation of God-fearing people. We have run astray and it is time to turn back to what makes this country great.
We have been lying to our selves as individuals and a country as a whole. We have convinced ourselves that we have the power to take control and that we are correct. Now that we are “Politically Correct” can we get down to the Truth?
The Truth lies in our faith as individuals and as a nation. Matter of fact; globally! Think of that…the whole world. Yes all the people’s of the world.
I ask you: “Where is your faith and whom do you put your faith in?”
We are told and sold many different idea’s. Are you giving your soul in the process? That is a heavy price to pay.
And for what? Money, fame, politics, power, are all the wrong reasons when you can by FAITH (not buy faith), gain more than anyone on this planet has to offer. It is not for free and it is not easy. The false profit is what you get when you subscribe to the “Traveling Medicine Man” or the current, and most popular self healer teaching professor. The true prophet’s leed you to Jesus, and by totally entrusting your faith in him, and only him, and following in his footsteps, there you will find the only absolute truth. It is a journey of Faith.

You may prefer this way. I highly recommend it. It is a simple prayer with consequences beyond anything that you have ever experienced. Pray to Jesus and ask him into your life, this you will never regret.
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your name.
Faith is not based on ETHNICITY, THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN, or GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
FAITH as defined by;

Faith by Webster’s American English Dictionary copyright 1999: 1.) allegiance 2.) belief and trust in God 3.) confidence 4.) system of religious beliefs.
Faith by The Holman Bible Dictionary copyright 1991: Trusting commitment of one person to another, particularly of a person to God. Faith is the central concept of Christianity. One may be called a Christian only if one has faith.
Our English word “faith” comes from the Latin fides, as developed through the Old French words fei and feid. In Middle English (1150-1475) “faith” replaced a word that eventually evolved into “belief.” “Faith” came to mean “loyalty to a person to whom one is bound by promise or duty.” Faith was fidelity. “Belief” came to be distinguished from faith as an intellectual process having to do with the acceptance of a proposition. The verb form of “faith” dropped out of English usage toward the end of the sixteenth century.
Conclusion Faith is what we believe, it is Christianity itself, but primarily it is the relationship we have with God through what Jesus accomplished in His death and resurrection. William L. Self
Following Jesus is by “FAITH” and it is for everyone, no matter where you are.
