Words mean things
NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

President Donald Trump is once again facing a firestorm. This time, over his remarks about not wanting immigrants from what he called "S**Thole nations." The media and his opponents wasted no time in translating his words into the word "racist." Whether it was taken out of context or not, this President should know by now that every word he says comes under great scrutiny, and most of his words will be twisted and used against him. He should, therefore, curb his word usage and be more intentional about the messages he is sending. Otherwise, his effectiveness will erode. If politicians believe Trump to be racist, they will not want to be seen with him or work with him. The Bible has a lot to say about words.
 
Christ said in Matthew 7:12, " Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets." It's called the Golden Rule. It starts out by treating others the way you would like to be treated. This is how we as Christians need to view the world. It should be a foundation of our life's philosophy, something etched in our heart. Christ also said in Matthew 15:11, " Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man." No matter how much we want change in this country from the previous ways, we also must not abandon our Christian principles in the process. Accountability is key.
 
Proverbs says a lot about the words we use. 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." 12:18, "There is that speaks like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health." 15:1, "A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger." 13:3, "He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction." 10:19, "He that refrains his lips is wise." 25:11, "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." 29:20, "See a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him." There are many who believe our President's harshness is necessary and that some people may deserve it, but scripturally speaking, it cannot be justified.
 
James 3:5-8 says," Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and has been tamed by mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." Curb your tongue, Mr. President. Words mean things and the meaner your words, the meaner you are portrayed, and the less you will be able to accomplish. 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

ALERT ALERT

 Gun Control Crowd Silent After Black Female
 Kills Three In Maryland Shooting 

A 26-year-old female stormed a RiteAid distribution center with a pistol this morning in Aberdeen, MD, killing three before turning the weapon on herself, according to police.

“Our suspect is a lone female suspect, age 26, who had a last known address in Baltimore County. She has died at the hospital from fatal injury, a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said.

The shooter has been identified by multiple news outlets as Snochia Moseley, a disgruntled temporary employee who also happens to be a black female.

Normally in the case of a mass shooting incident like this, Twitter would be ablaze with calls for gun control measures, inane nonsense about terrorism, labels of toxic masculinity and dismantling gun rights groups like the NRA.

But something is different about today’s shooting: it was not carried out by a white male, leading to deafening silence from the usual suspects in the anti-gun world.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group partnered with far left Everytown for Gun Safety, has been silent except for a generic “condolences” message posted to its Twitter page.

The group’s founder, ever-outspoken Shannon Watts, has not said a word about the shooting on her active Twitter feed.

There has been nothing but silence from petulant David Hogg, face of the Hitler youth pre-pubescent gun control crowd, who rose to national prominence after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February which killed 17.

Leftist activist Michael Moore has not weighed in, either (literally or figuratively).

Nor is cable news playing the story on repeat with live coverage, a “BREAKING NEWS” chyron, and gun-control activists on call as guests during every segment.

If all of these “activists” truly believed in the cause, shouldn’t the standard be the same regardless of the ethnicity and gender of the shooter?

Big League Politics reached out to Shannon Watts to ask her just that. She did not return our request for comment.

The FBI, the DEA, the ATF, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police and the local municipal departments of Aberdeen, Havre de Grace and Bel Air are all investigating the incident.
