“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that naturewill reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds.... "-Abraham Lincoln (the first great leader of the Republican Party)
The Republicans of the day worked to pass the Thirteenth Amendment, which outlawed slavery, the Fourteenth, which guaranteed equal protection under the laws, and the Fifteenth, which helped secure voting rights for African-Americans.
How did the Party go from Lincoln to Limbaugh? From light to darkness? From leadership to talk?
It’s time that the Republicans do the work laid out by their first great leader.
Proverbs 14:23 (New International Version)
"All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty."
