The Great Separation is my message about the division in America today. America’s division has escalated to where we have become two nations in this trying year of 2020, akin to the times of the Civil War.
In society today, social mores (what’s that?) have all together eroded to a new all-time low, where what’s right is now defined as wrong, and to where what’s wrong is now defined as what’s right (or acceptable), and generally goes unopposed.
In this episode, we will seek out God’s Word for biblical understanding about the intense political upheaval America is going through. What should we expect in the very world around us that is undergoing this “Great Separation”?
In many cases, and according to scripture, this separation will penetrate down to family and friends suddenly finding themselves on opposite sides of the dividing line as it pertains to life and Godliness, including:
- Life vs. Death
- Producers vs. Takers
- People who seek truth, beauty, and light vs. people who seek power, hate, & darkness,
- Political party lines (Demon-crats vs. Republicans)
Biblical Reference: Luke 12:50 – 56
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. 56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

In this episode of “The REALLY, Real, Deal”, Reverend Craig explores the nation’s “failure to restrain” evil, and the lack of leadership and action from the Church (including Republican Watchmen, the media, the medical community, the police departments, politicians ,and others), and its consequences.
Judgement comes not only to those who commit acts of evil (sins of commission), but judgment also comes to those who fail to restrain evil (sins of omission). Refer to God’s Word found in 1 Samuel Ch 3,

In these tense times that we are living in, can we hold fast to being conservative in the teaching and promotion of conservatism?
Our conservative opponents will define us if we fail to define ourselves. The Democrats define a Conservative as, One who wants to conserve the past, or as, One who is against change. This is a lie. True Conservatism is conservation of what God has already created.
Conservatism dates to the relationship between God and man. So, what does a True Conservative want to conserve? Simply, the idea that our rights and freedoms come from God, and not from our fellow human beings.
In February of 2019 Reverend Craig was the closing speaker to a nation of pro-life supporters as part of the Commonwealth for Life March on Richmond. Nearly 3,000 grass roots activists traveled near and far, and held an orderly rally on Virginia’s Capitol Square on the steps of Gov. Ralph Northam’s front door.
The rally was held in protest of the Left’s pro-death agenda for infanticide (murder) following Gov. Ralph Northam’s advocacy of “late-term abortion”, which he stated would allow a baby to be “made comfortable” but terminated after birth.
Meet Barbara from Harlem.
Barbara was a generational neo-liberal by default. She asked no questions and she had no answers. When it came time to vote, she would just reflexively pull the lever to vote for Democrats, which was expected of her.
In her own words, Barbara states that, “Most of my fellow Black Americans do not fully understand what the term “liberal” means, or who or what they are voting for. And, in turn they do not realize how harmful those “liberal” policies are to our freedoms and liberties as Americans.”
Evangelist Dr. Alveda C. King is a frequent visitor of The REALLY, Real, Deal.
Evangelist King is the daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and his wife Naomi Barber King.
During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda’s family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama in the heat of the struggle. “Daddy’s house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky, his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement,” she recalls.
In commemoration of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the King family legacy, check out her uncle’s brilliant speech, “The Street Sweeper”.
God bless you,
