Laying Aside a Root of Bitterness

In spite of the desperate times in which we live, there has been a certain indulgence in bitterness among conservatives.

There are those who wanted a “different” candidate to be nominated and rather than looking at the bigger picture, of the threats to liberty, freedom, and the nation itself, would rather nurse their wounds. Because of their bitterness, they have even threatened to vote for the non-conservative candidate.

See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.  Hebrews 12:5 NIV

We cannot afford the luxury of bitterness.  Laura Ingraham spoke last night and made reference to “wounded egos”.  We cannot afford the luxury of “wounded egos”, jealousy, or bitterness.  This is where the rubber meets the road.  While all Christians and Catholics recognize the problem of sin, oftentimes it can be in terms of a “vertical” recognition, that sin separates from God and that forgiveness for sin is required for fellowship with the Lord to be restored.

However, there are always horizontal consequences to sin as well.  We need to fellowship with people around us: in our homes, in our communities, and in our places of employment.  When it comes to political parties, there is a very practical reason to be cleansed of the sin of bitterness.  The scripture says it will cause trouble.

There are enough troubles in the world today.  Radical Islamic Terrorism is bring death and destruction worldwide.  Governments are corrupt.  Nations are in turmoil.  There are economic problems from individuals / families that cannot find work to nations that are in debt.

This is not a time to pull apart in various factions.  It is a time to join together, lay aside past feelings of bitterness, and work to elect Donald J. Trump.  His determination, gifts, skills and past record will help return freedom, jobs, and the Christian ethic back to this nation.

As Newt Gingrich pointed out, in November, there is either a vote for or against the Constitution.  We know who supports the Constitution and rule of law (Trump) and who does not (Hillary).  We must elect Trump.  This nation is at the point of no return.  There are two choices, Trump or Hillary.  Trump will bring the nation back from the brink of death.  Hillary will push it over the cliff.

It is time to give up bitterness so we can all work together to elect Donald J. Trump in November because there will not be another chance.

    What dribble !! Hateful resentment and bitterness has been a hallmark of liberals for generations. Conservatives are those who stand firm for preserving tradition and Christian ideology. Why is it that a distinction is made between “Christians AND Catholics?” Are Catholics not Christians?

    Wow. First I assume that this article is not presented by, or on behalf of the RCC in the US, else its tax exempt status might come under scrutiny. This article is from an individual Trumpster who speaks of setting aside bitterness among Republicans in order to unify in bitterness against Democrats. Isn’t that special.
    Perhaps the “bitter root” Hebrews refers to is Trump himself. That seems a far more likely interpretation. As for bitter roots, few can display fiercer hostility to others than Laura Ingraham! The author speaks of corrupt governments, and let us not forget the financial and sexual scandals the Vatican itself is embroiled in, and note that it is in no moral position to reflect on the politics of other countries.
    I think Kaine may pick up some Catholic votes this year. If we really want to change things, we have to change Congress. The Presidential election strikes me as theatrics designed to distract us from what’s really important – fixing our dysfunctional Congress. Don’t allow my distaste for Trump detract from my distaste for Clinton – I will be voting Libertarian – the lesser of evils.
