Seems it is true….There is really nothing new under the sun… Human nature seems to drag along drearily, hardly anything changing or advancing, [We lie, cheat, steal, deceive, and murder, as good today as we ever have.] And what I believe to be the root cause, ( Man’s rebellion against God, and his consequential downfall, from the original plan of our creator) seems to be staring humanity once again in the face demanding action & attention. Comparatively, Technology seems to reach to new heights, and take leaps and bounds almost on a daily basis…. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again, there is truly nothing new under the sun… Ecclesiastes 1:9….

So what did you learn and observe from the Vice Presidential debate last night?…. Here is what I have gleaned….. Actually it was a confirmation of what I’ve known for quite a while, as I’m sure some of you have….

Painting with a broad brush of course, there seems to basically be two types of people in the world….(As was put on display in the persons of Kamala Harris and Mike Pence) two types of people operating from two starting points, and differing modes of operandi… I believe resulting from their basic world view and belief systems….so…

Using Kamala Harris as an example, She is obviously self serving, self absorbed, and by her demeanor and attitude has placed herself in the proverbial Washington DC ivory tower, looking down on the rest of us peons… Please note that she made a point to tell Mike Pence that she & ‘Joe’ were also of Christian faith, although for the life of me, I struggle very hard to find evidence, though I am not her judge… However discernment has to come into play at some point with these and really all people…

Looking at Mike Pence… poised calmly and confidently on the other side of the plexiglass…( And please don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying that Mike is perfect because no one is) we observe a man speaking from his experience and his heart concerning the job that Donald Trump has done, and trying sincerely to point out the down turn and potential downfall America would take under the leadership of Kamala Harris and Joe Biden…. One of my favorite lines from Mike Pence yesterday evening was….”Kamala, You are entitled to your own opinion but you are not entitled to your own facts.”….Sheer brilliance on Mr. Pence’s part….

So if you’re not aware of it, I’ll remind you that here we humans are….stuck in the ancient, manifesting now in the modern, struggle between Good and Evil, God and the Devil, Roe vs Wade, China vs United States, etc… and most importantly Life-and-Death…. Because if we are serious, and really think about it, almost all the major issues of our times (& any times) end up having major impacts on life & death…

Whether we are aware of it or not, every day we make choices for either life-or-death, Good or Evil, God or the Devil…. On and on we go…. It’s really quite simple, there are people that get it, and there and there are people that don’t get it, and the latter seem to be blind and happy…. To me the line in the sand is, when these that are blind and happy are demanding that they stick their ideologies down our throats, whether we want them or not… and are seemingly willing to sacrifice ‘our’ well being, lives,, beliefs, with punishments & laws up to and including death…. So there you have it friends, my impressions of the Vice Presidential debate last night… Also I want to to say, that I was impressed with the ‘taste of civility’ that took place on the stage last night…littleraventhepoet.blog…Sincerely, Frank Payton…
