Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: The dilemma


I have been in a quandary since the withdrawal of what I consider the last candidate that showed Christian values when Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. Now I am aware of what has been said about him and I have made it clear in the past I had my own reservations about him. However, I know without a doubt that there is none running that can truly say they are “Christian” now. There will be those that will challenge this belief, but I base my belief solely from the Bible and what it teaches. Again there will be those that will challenge this, but I will not be swayed in my understanding of the word of God.
I see time and again those that state they are one with God, but their words and their actions tell a different story. What the Bible makes very clear is that God is to be the center point of our existence. Then I hear people say “where does the Bible say anything about voting?”
Didn’t I just say that GOD is to be the CENTER of ALL that we do? This includes every action that we make. Every choice that we make. Does not “all” include voting? Yes it does.
This is the mentality of those that think they are “Christian” these days. They are so blinded by the words of others and their own lack of knowledge of the Bible that they do not see their own blindness. Why do you think it is called “blindness?”
2 Corinthians 4:3 – If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. 4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
Revelation 3:17 – You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.
This is the state of many that have stated their choice for those that are now left running for president in the United States. In the Democratic Party, a party that openly supports sin, condones human sacrifice and denies the very existence of God. There is a liar and criminal running yet most in her party have supporter her. The rest support a person whose beliefs is to take form others and give to those that the government deems worthy of it. This is slavery and those that are taking and wishing to receive are the new masters in this slavery. But again they do not see it this way for they are blind to the truth because of their own selfish desires and lusts. For to them they are their own god and all must revolve around them. They do not see that they are sinning most grievously against God. This is understandable to them since most of them deny there is a God.
Then we have the person that many that think they are “Christian” have voted for proclaiming him the savior of this once proud nation. They do not see that they have placed this human above God and above the true Savior Jesus Christ.
As “Christians” we are to place God at the center of ALL. Every action especially actions that affect how we are to be lead within a nation MUST be centered upon the teaching and values of those taught by Jesus Christ. This includes those additional teachings that were given to us by the apostles, those personally chosen by Christ Himself to spread the word of salvation and humble service to God though Jesus Christ.
Now what many did not see due to their blindness is that this last eight years has been a judgment by God against the United States of America. For this nation has sinned grievously against Him.
This election was God’s test to see if we have learned from His judgment. The answer was made very clear as one by one those that professed to be a servant of God were rejected by the primary voters in state after state.
Then we came down to Ted Cruz. A human, a flawed man. A man who did not commit adultery. A man who did not lie. A man that is accused of adultery by someone that openly admits to truly committing adultery and states plainly that he will continue to live in this sin. A man that didn’t lie is accused by someone that cannot say the same thing on the same topic and so in fact is continually lying.
Yet this sinner is who the people have chosen. This man that is a true definition of the word “heathen.”
It is clear now that it is more judgment that is going to come raining down upon this once proud nation. A more severe judgment. Yet still those that are blind attack those that are warning them that this is not going to end well for all.
Yet the blind are smug and feign righteous indignation. Making themselves out to be better and smarter than those that have read the Bible and see the signs of Biblical history once again repeating itself.
As I see this, hear this and read this, I can come to only one conclusion. I must vote for God. I must vote for Jesus.
Now comes the comment from the reader: “But you just said there are none that are Christian running.”
That is what I said. That means I must vote for Jesus. I will not vote for any in the presidential campaign. I will go to vote. I will vote for those that are running for congress, senate, state offices and local offices, but I cannot in good conscience vote for any that openly oppose God and His Son my Savior.
Does this mean I will be handing this nation over to the Democratic Party? Most likely, but it is not due to my actions that this will happen. It is due to every single person that calls themselves “Christian” and forgot to place God at the core of their lives. It will be the fault of every person that says they are “Christian” and voted for someone that is more a reflection of Satan than of Christ.
True Christians would only seek out someone that is a servant leader as is required by the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself.
Mark 10:42 – So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
The majority has chosen judgment over salvation. God has ask for our repentance and it has been resoundingly rejected. Now we are to enter into an even more harsh judgement. Does that require more of our freedoms to be taken from us? Yes it does. Does this mean we are to suffer financially? Yes it does.
For God is to be the center. Not ourselves, not our possessions, not humanity, but GOD. If this means we must suffer to awaken to the truth then let it happen. Then let those that say they are “Christian” really come to a realization of who it is they are really worshiping, for it is not God nor His Son.
