Excerpt from Latest Newsletter


Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,


To go along with the theme of the August issue of The Lutheran Witness magazine, I would like to share just a few more thoughts, based upon wisdom of those fearing the Lord as the beginning of all knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). They are based upon a sermon once delivered by the Reverend Dr. Walter Maier. While giving credit to his message back in 1937, it is just as timely as I bring the thoughts forward to your attention today. Whatever the outcome of the upcoming elections, whoever is voted into power, the destiny of our nations will remain in the hands of God. After all the campaign "stumping" is ended, God's message for the up-building of our nation must be heralded with unceasing force; for national blessing relies upon neither party; it depends upon the almighty.


God reveals the divine direction for national strength and happiness in a program that is surprisingly plain. Compared to the lengthy political platforms, it pales in its simplicity, but great statesmen cannot but reverently acknowledge its unfailing truth. With the millions of words written in this election campaign in 2020, God's plan for national blessing, given in twelve short, unadorned words, may be discounted as too general and impracticable for our stern realities. But they do offer a happy solution to every issue before our country, for they penetrate the cause of everything helpful and everything destructive to our nation.
