Proverbs 6:16-19 Speaks to Hate on Display in Charlottesville, VA

Proverbs is considered wisdom literature. Let's pause for a moment of wisdom from that book and see what is worthy of being worked hard against, today, and always. There are far too many of all of these at work right now, right here. It won't stop is we don't stop it.


There are six things that the Lord hates,seven that are an abomination to him:17haughty eyes, a lying tongue,and hands that shed innocent blood,18a heart that devises wicked plans,feet that hurry to run to evil,19a lying witness who testifies falsely,and one who sows discord in a family.

I cannot tell you how repulsed I am by the hatred shredding this nation. It is time for all people of good will to stand up and cry out against hatred in all its forms.

Here's one action we can all take immediately: https://jsbrookspresents.blogspot.com/2017/08/write-white-house-now.html

If you need to catch up on what is happening, here's a couple sources of news available (to date it is reported that a car has run into counter protesters today with multiple casualties): http://www.dailyprogress.com/news/local/trump-condemns-unite-the-right-rally-violence-in-charlottesville/article_ef4ba358-7f6a-11e7-84cf-8f840f442510.html ; http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/12/us/charlottesville-white-nationalists-rally/index.html

Here's what the Governor of Virginia had to say about those who rioted. Note that he doesn't mention the counter protesters. Apparently the Governor didn't have any doubt who were the bad actors over those two days: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/12/us/charlottesville-white-nationalists-rally/index.html
