Racial Hysteria at Missouri University

"Black Lives Matter" Influence is Evident

Here we are again. Another social wave sweeping through an American city and institution. The ugly and destructive spirit of prejudice and hate has reared its ugly head and we are seeing the momentum is beginning to build. And if we're not careful we will see more chaos and destruction of our institutions dealt my a radical minority.

The resignation of Tim Wolfe, president of the University of Missouri system, is indicative of where this country is headed if leaders do not stand up for law and order. The comment that was made as participants were interviewed was, "I had no idea this would feel so empowering". Really? And do you think this will not lead to more of the same?

These participants even proclaimed that is was their intention to "tear down the system". Okay! But what do they want to replace it with? All this has arisen from the violence in the streets that we have already seen in Missouri. We've seen a cop tried and judged on the streets and in the media only to be vindicated in a court of law after evidence was presented that supported the policeman's claims of self-defense. But that didn't matter the community. The race card had been played and there was not taking if off the table.

This recent incident reveals the serious problem we now have in America with race and with the youth. This destructive spirit is manifesting itself in our streets, school systems and government and we need to know where it's headed.

Where else can we look for insight other then the scriptures? Isaiah tells us in 1:7, "Your land is desolate, your cities are burned with fire, your fields - strangers are devouring them in your presence; it is desolation, as overthrown by strangers. Next in Isaiah 3:4-5, we read "And I will make mere lads their princes, and capricious children will rule over them, and the people will be oppressed, each by another, and each one by his neighbor; the youth will storm against the elder, and the inferior against the honorable."

This is exactly what we're seeing unfold practically each day in America. This incident at the University of Missouri is a precedent that is monumental. It demonstrates that any protest can bring a school system to its knees. What's next is social upheaval of the American way of life. Abraham Lincoln's words come into play at this time and are worth remembering;

"America will never be destroyed from the outside, if we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves".

We need strong leadership in every facet of our country. Men and women who stand upon Godly principles, who are bold and courageous like Donald Trump, who will not be intimidated by a few radical, even demonic in some cases, socialists. Political correctness must be vanquished once and for all. What must be done to restore this country must be initiated in prayer.

I recently posted a prayer for America on my prayer page. If you believe in the power in prayer, and you should, then take a look at it and share it with as many people as possible and ask them to pray without ceasing. You can find the prayer called The Ephesian Prayer for America at God & Prayer. Remember, "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world".

God Bless You,

Luis Castillo
