My People Perish For Lack of Knowledge (Hosea 4:6)

My People Perish For Lack of Knowledge  (Hosea 4:6)
Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr.

By Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr.


You should know that New York State Governor, Kathy Hochul, recently made the following announcement:  She said that "New York will not allow Republicans to come and change our Reproductive Laws”.   What she really meant to say but did not have the audacity to plainly say it, is that “New York will not allow the Republicans to come and change their (the Democrats) radical Abortion Laws.” 

She made this declaration apparently too ashamed to use the word "Abortion". The Leftists Democrats have, for too long, controlled the verbiage and they have successfully done so for the purpose of confusing voters.   They hide behind the words that are less harsh and as a result easier to swallow.   They change the language (actual words) to conceal their true intentions (agenda).   The Left knows that they will face the voter’s repudiation which can result in their loss on election day.  So, the truth is hidden behind carefully selected language, crafted to purposely confuse the voter.

This change in words is a clever, sophisticated, but a deceiving strategy that too often results in uniting a large block of voters, who do not fully understand this play on words and their true hidden meanings.   Therefore, words used in place of the actual words appear to be something they are not.   

This is intended to, deceitfully, hide Democrats Leftists Agenda.  An agenda that most people, especially people of faith, do not support.  The voter will unknowingly vote for pro-abortion candidates, and for the very policies they abhor.   Abortion and Late term Abortions become laws disguised as “Pro-Choice Rights” or “Reproductive Rights”, etc.

Most Democrats and elected officials, either willingly play into this game of semantics or they are too ashamed to publicly say what they really mean.  They will not campaign as a pro-abortion candidate, and instead they campaign as a “Pro-Choice” candidate.   You see how easier that is to swallow?  I guess this makes them feel better about themselves. They convince themselves that they are doing something “Nobel”, something great that would benefit women and their unborn children.  

During campaign season, we often hear candidates and elected officials proudly say that they support a "Women’s Right to Choose” or they will promise to protect "Reproductive Rights.”  But don’t be fooled.  Please know that these nice phrases are synonymous to saying they support “Abortion”.  That my dear reader, leads to the end of an innocent life.   As the saying goes “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.”   

It is important for you to know, that we as Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, and believers in the Holy Scriptures, believe in “Reproduction”, not “Abortion”.   Reproduction produces Life while Abortions always Lead to Death.    Supporters of Abortion recognize this fact, so they will go all out to transform the harsh word of "Abortion" and turn it into something it is not.   Abortion is not “Reproductive Health”.  Abortion is not about being “Pro-choice” when the only choice is the death of the unborn.  Abortion is not about a “Women’s Health” when women too often have suffered with emotional, mental, and physical ailments following her abortion procedure.

It is unfortunate that far too many Christian voters and people of faith have been purposely deceived and do not know that when they support and vote for a person who publicly says that they are “Pro-choice” or “Pro-Reproductive Rights” they are voting for a person who supports the death of an innocent life who is still in their mother’s womb.  

It is important for you to know that the Left is very aware of how crucially important words are in today’s culture and how words convey emotions and transform one's thinking.  They know how to use certain words or terms that will convey emotions in the hearts and minds of the electorate.  Words have been changed to such a level that if we are to use the original terms, we will be confronted with insults, criticized, subjected to name calling and condemnation from the Left. 

For example, persons entering the U.S. illegally; can no longer be called “Illegal Aliens”.  Now an easier term to swallow is "Undocumented Immigrant”.   Please note, that although this play on words may sound great, it does nothing to help solve the serious problem of illegal immigration.  The individual is still here Illegally, disadvantaged, and still faces the problems and hardships that come with it.    

Another example on this play on words, is that many reject the use of the word “Homosexual”.  You are “Homophobic”, a “bigot” or a “Preacher of Hatred” accused of “hate speech”, and other derogatory terms, if you dare use the word “Homosexual” instead of the word “Gay” (note the original meaning of "Gay” was to be joyous or in a state of happiness).  

Now Drug Addicts, and Alcoholics, are called and treated as “Persons with Disabilities” or “Persons with Substance Dependency”.  Failure to use the proper verbiage will subject you to accusations of being “insensitive”, “hateful”, and you're accused of having discriminated against that person.

It is very important for you to know that in Washington D.C., individuals dressed as members of the clergy, gather in front of Abortion clinics to pray, and proclaim that abortion is a righteous "Sacred and Holy” act.  Can you imagine how far we have fallen as a society when the truth no longer matters?

A person who enters a life of Prostitution, obviously, were called “Prostitutes”.  Now they are to be called “Sex Trade Workers” or “Employees of the Sex Industry”. This makes the selling of your body sound more respectable and acceptable.

These changes in our language, this game of semantics, and the transformation of the true meaning of the word has negatively impacted our society.  It has caused much confusion, division, misunderstandings, and the condemnation of Christians and other groups of faith.  This has proven to be detrimental to the people of our City and State.

The Leftists, Socialists, Communists, and Progressive’s goal is to permanently transform our vocabulary.  Why? Because they know that whoever controls the language, controls the culture, the hearts, minds, and successfully controls the agenda.  Changing the vocabulary, conceals the truth and pushes forward the Leftists “Progressive” agenda.

My advice is this; let’s keep true to our words and keep their Rightful Meanings.  Let’s say what we mean and mean what we say.   If we believe in what is written in Scripture, that in the beginning God created everything and named all things.  Then let’s keep it real. The word of God says that "He never changes" (Malachi 3:6) and that He is "the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrew 13:8).   We cannot think to be wiser or more intelligent than The Creator of the Universe.

This is not based on Racism, Discrimination, Homophobia, let alone Hate speech.  This has everything to do with the Truth, Transparency, Liberty, Freedom of Religion, and the free exercise thereof.
