These wonderful ladies and gentlemen truly create a peaceful and academically productive atmosphere for all Joliet high school and grade school students.
The battle of good and evil in the U.S.
To the Editor:
In August, I submitted a letter to the opinions page that never got published. It dealt with racism toward white people, gun control laws, fact-checking and the need to overthrow an evil element that has risen in this country. Apparently it was too hard-hitting for the owners of the paper to publish.
Understand that there is a spiritual war going on between evil and good. Anyone who has any common sense can see it playing out in this country. One side breaks laws, makes up lies and fabricates stories in an effort to remove a sitting president. They accuse the president of crimes that they themselves have committed. The other side exposes the lies and begins investigating the corruption.
This infuriates the other side and scares them, as they know they have broken the law. They try to do anything to remove the president and stop investigations from proceeding. They try to cover up their evil, but slowly it is coming to light for all to see.
I can see in John 8:44 where the devil is the father of lies and how his children follow in his path. By their fruits you will know them. I also know how many are waiting for the 7th trump when Christ returns to restore order on earth and rule in righteousness. I think we are seeing a type of that happening, as we have a Trump in office that is trying to make things right for the American people. Perhaps he is a chosen vessel. Acts 9:15.
As this spiritual war plays out, it is nice knowing which side will have victory. Let their lies and deception continue and be exposed for what they truly are, satanic.
Everyone is wrong about something
To the Editor:
Regardless of your intelligence, everyone is wrong about something eventually.
Isaac Newton,with an IQ in the 160s, practiced alchemy. He mistakenly believed you could combine two ordinary base metals and transform them into gold. He was wrong. He also believed that rays of light were particles. They’re actually wavelengths.
In the Old Testament book of Daniel, he called Belshazzar the son of Nebuchadnezzar. As it turns out, he actually was the son of Nabonidus. The prophet Daniel also predicted that Antiochus IV would die between the Mediterranean Sea and Jerusalem. The truth is he died hundreds of miles to the east in Persia.
If science and religion can both be wrong, what can we really accept as true? The answer, not surprisingly, is very little. Even mathematicians debate the validity of “proofs” from various theorems. AI actually posits the hypothesis that much of the math we know is possibly just an illusion.
When it comes to history, and especially politics, each has to be interpreted by human beings with biases and prejudices. I guess we should all take Edgar Allan Poe’s advice: Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.
