Jesus Matters

       Black lives matter, all lives matter, blue lives matter, and we can be sure that there are likely several other similar phrases being yelled out back and forth from one group to another. More will surely come until Americans tire of this popular catch phrase. Black lives matter, the phrase that started this trend, began in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman whose famously known for murdering the defenseless young black teen Trayvon Martin after spotting him walking through his neighborhood. Trayvon Martin's tragic death resulted in marches and protests by both African Americans and White Americans throughout many urban neighborhoods scattered around the US. Then came further street demonstrations after the tragic deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo and Eric Garner in New York City. The BLM movement grew larger and stronger gathering more popularity and media mentions. One will often witness fights brewing between protesters and local policeman while the officers were trying to keep the peace. Politicians were forced to choose sides between the local policeman or the protesters. Liberal Media would often use comments by presidential candidates concerning the movement in order to influence voters to choose one candidate over the other. During the first Democratic debate in 2015 Bernie Sanders stated that "Black Lives Matter. Martin O'malley stated that "Black Lives Matter". Ben Carson, a black candidate from the Republican party, called the movement "silly". Hilary Clinton came up with "All Lives Matter". Looking at the situation while trying to think logically and without being influenced by the television one can easily agree that all lives matter but a lot of maturity and wisdom must be mixed in with this phrase. Of course blue lives matter. That is obvious. America cannot simply shoot down several policemen every time injustice is committed in this country. Such actions committed repeatedly will cause massive chaos. Policemen cannot continue to shoot down unarmed black men every time an officer gets upset or one suspects something bad  happened. Such foolishness has brought about this horrible mess in the first place. What about Jesus Matters? What if America believed that Jesus matters and preached this message as well as walked this message day in, day out with no hindrance from the media or so called equal rights groups? What if the ACLU instead of going after teachers who desire to bring their Bibles to schools or bosses who wish to openly pray in their offices went after old men who daily seek out young middle school, high school girls to join their harem, or sought after gangs who lure young boys out from school in order to help them make money out of selling dope out on the streets?
       Jesus matters and believing in Him will create much more progress in America than decisively favoring one group's cause over another. Unfortunately, many young black men, women, and white individuals have been fooled by the BLM movement into believing that they have their back, or that this movement is going to create any sort of gainful momentum for individuals representing any race or sex. Liberal Media has brainwashed many Americans into believing that Jesus Christ is just a character in the Bible meant to be preached within the walls of the church while kept out of the harsh life that often occurs within the everyday world. Jesus Matters and believing in Him while copying His ways would create much more progress and peace in America than every day screaming at people one's message of who does and does not matter. If only America would give Him a chance. If only Liberal Media will allow all Americans the Freedom to make their own choice.

Ezekiel 18:23
"Do I have any pleasure in the death of the wicked," declares the Lord GOD, "rather than that he should turn from his ways and live?
Ezekiel 18:32
"For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies," declares the Lord GOD. "Therefore, repent and live."

John 3:17
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
