America Needs Someone Else Besides Trump and Biden (Gospel Light Minute X #457)

America Needs Someone Else Besides Trump and Biden (GLMX #457)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #457 titled, “Who America Needs” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

Which issues matter most to you? According to a keyword analysis of the candidates’ websites, some of the issues listed reflect the hot topics in this year’s election: covid-19, civil rights, climate change, military families, foreign policy, student debt, refugees, gun violence, unemployment, immigration, economy, and supreme court. If you’ve been paying attention to the debates, ads, and campaign speeches, you can probably identify which candidates are responsible for pushing many of these topics forward.

Regardless of who wins this election, these issues will continue to be at the forefront of our national discussion for years to come. Why is that? Why do some conflicts and problems never seem to go away? Part of the reason is the gridlock which seems to define our government. Neither side wants to lose, so the divide between left and right becomes more entrenched with each passing year.

On another level, though, we see that the issues facing America have their roots in human nature. We want what someone else has. We don’t want to share what’s ours to meet the needs of others. We argue and fight to protect what we think we deserve. We are envious. We are greedy. We are selfish. We hate.

Where do these problems originate? What can be done to fix them? While each candidate has a plan to deal with the symptoms of our society’s ills, none of them can fix the root cause. Jesus Christ said in Mark 7:21-22, “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness”.

The main problem we have in America is the same issue which has plagued mankind since the beginning of history—the problem of sin in the human heart. Despite our best efforts, we will not find the remedy to this problem in any policy or president. There is only one person who has the answer for sin. He is not a Republican, nor is He a Democrat. He is Jesus, the Son of God.

Jesus came to earth to solve the problem of sin. Before He was born, His mission was announced by an angel. Matthew 1:21 says, “He shall save His people from their sins”. When He began His ministry of teaching, healing, and performing miracles, He was introduced as “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world”.

Our sin must be put away before we can walk with God and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. When Jesus died on Calvary’s cross, He “suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God”. He was then raised from the dead so we can be forgiven and set free.

Jesus said in Mark 1:15, “Repent ye, and believe the gospel”. To receive the blessing of salvation from sin, we must turn to God in repentance—we must shift our position from unbelief, sin, and self-righteousness—and put our trust in Jesus. The Bible says in Acts 16:31, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”.

When you stand before God some day, He probably won’t ask who you voted for in the 2020 election. The only question which will really matter then is the one I ask you now: “What will you do with Jesus?”

If you want to be saved from the wrath to come and from an eternity in Hell, and if you believe that Jesus Christ suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
