Most have the wrong image of how “Christians” are to act


We have the appeasers.
We have the love merchants.
We have the prosperity gurus.
All seek one goal to get humanity to come into their buildings called “churches.”
First off the “church of Christ” is not a building it is those that have accepted Christ as their Savior and strife to follow His teaches as best they can. Stumbling and falling, but growing stronger and ever forward are those that have accepted as their Savior, the Son of God.
Second, those that are the Body of Christ are to separate from those of the world. Not to mix and mingle with it, for the Bible states clearly the end result. Those of the Body re-enter the world. Now physically this is not something that can be done, but there is no need to get involved in the discussions about sports, celebrities or the latest fad. You simply state the truth, you have no interest and go on about your business.
Then who are we to fellowship with? The Bible makes it clear, we are to fellowship with each other. To be encouraged and up lifted by our fellow followers of Jesus. We are told time and again to do this, yet how many actually gather with those that are their fellows? Not enough I would gathers and many that thing just going to the buildings called “churches” is all they need do. They should seek to make friends from within the Body and seek to fellowship with them daily.
We are to be the light of the truth that shines into the darkness that is the world about us. Exposing sin into the light to shame and embarrass. Not with words, but with our actions. Not actions of looking down upon those that sin, but showing that we have no desire to partake of these sins ourselves. We are not to attack, berate or belittle, but to those willing to hear we are to reprove, rebuke and exhort when asked, but mainly we are to do it with our behavior and our attitude of not thinking we are better than those that sin, but their equals even though we do not partake of their actions, which are against God.
It is to be done in knowledge of what is within the Bible and knowing what is right and wrong. Then through right action we show those that are not doing right to at some point within their souls understand that they are wicked, weak and pitiful. For they will see you living in a way they thought impossible and will wonder and question their own lifestyles and behavior as it should be done.
Without knowledge of the Bible as well as the driving forces for sinful humanity you can give a false image, an image of hypocrisy.
Will all be able to accomplish a true image of our Savior? Maybe not today or tomorrow, but it is doable.
One of the main factors that drives people away from God is those that do seek to appease; those that do seek after only love; those that seek earthly rewards.
Yes Christ does seek after peace, but knows that as long as humanity is corrupt there shall never be peace, there will only be murder, hate and war. All driven by humanities selfish desires to say that only they can accomplish what is already promised unto them through the blood of Jesus Christ.
Yes Jesus does love, but the love is so great that He died for our sins to be washed away and never to be repeated.
Yes the Savior does promise rewards, but it is an eternal reward that will never be received here upon the earth, for only corruption comes from the earth and Christ Jesus our Savior is perfection and offers only perfect rewards that are beyond this failing and corrupt reality. Rewards that will last for billions upon billions of years once this reality has been replaced with the new reality yet to be. For God has said that once the testing of those in this reality is completed there will be a new universe and a new earth. One that will not see humanity as beings that walked upon this small planet of in the corner of a small galaxy, but as servants of the Most High, the Creator of all there is and all there will be, God.

Are you ready to go to jail?


As we get further into this century. As we look about us and more and more of the signs Christ warned us to look out for become a reality. We must come to the most drastic of choices.
Are you willing to be placed in jail? Have your job taken from you. Have your personal possessions taken from you. Be left with nothing but the clothes the government issues you to wear.
Well are you?
Many of you reading this will scoff or laugh at what I am stating here, of what I am asking here.
There is already evidence of this. The Mideast and the acts of ISIS against those that profess to be Christian and refuse to turn their backs upon their faith are brutally murdered. Christian are made to look the villain, the pariah, the small minded in this very nation.
Fewer and fewer go to church, many that are young don’t even know you are to go to church on Sunday mornings to worship the Savior and His Father the Creator of all.
Yet you do not see the time coming that will imprison you?
Sad very sad.

From corruption comes corruption, from perfection comes perfection


Any that think that humans can help humans achieve perfection or greatness is ignoring the evidence that has been given unto all throughout history.
Are we in a world that is run from Memphis, Egypt?
Are we in a world run from Babylon?
Are we in a world that is run from Imperial Rome, and we are all citizens of Rome?
Are we in a world that is run from Catholic Rome and we all answer to the Pope?
Are we in a world where we all speak French and ruled by a dictator whose last name has been changed to Napoleon?
Are we in a world that is run from Berlin and we call ourselves descents of the one true Arian race?
Are we in a world that is run from Moscow and we have red flags everywhere?
All these nations and groups sought after perfection. None are perfect. Most were even heinous and cruel.
All came from humanity seeking perfection and ignored that which is perfection.
Yet what is perfection? None can see it, none can touch it.
Yet it is there.
It does exist.
It is real and like all that is true perfection is eternal and immortal.
Yet none wish to hear the truth. They would rather take that which is perfect and turn it into corruption so that they will be equal to it, since they realize inside that they are corrupt and unworthy of perfection.
However, this is not the promise we are given by perfection. We are told by perfection that we too can be perfect.
How is this possible? How can corruption become perfect since corruption has only made corruption?
There is only one door.
There is only one way.
Yet they do not wish to hear this. They must be allowed to live as they wish, as they like, yet that is the problem with corruption and why it can only create corruption. Because what it desires is corrupt and not worthy of perfection.
But they do not wish to hear this. It goes against all they want. It goes against all they desire.
But there is only one door.
But there is only one way.
That way is Jesus Christ.
That way is to leave sin behind, to say I cannot live in the corrupt.
That is to say Christ forgive me. That is to say Jesus accept me as your child and love me as your servant. For only through Him and His blood that He shed for you upon the cross is the only way to truly reach perfection.

Review: Hillary’s America: The Secret History Of The Democratic Party


I cannot use my usual method of rating films here since that rating system was established for movies dedicated to escapism.
This movie is not for the escapist, but for those that wish to have their eyes opened to the facts.
Unfortunately those that need to see it the most will refuse to watch.
The only thing that bothered me was the ending when Dinesh D’Souza the producer and director as well as writer of this documentary did get a little too propaganda-ish with the patriotic songs.
He did though present good evidence and reconfirmed fact that I no longer hear mentioned.
Point Andrew Jackson sleeping with his female slaves, there is evidence that there were children born from these coerced unions.
Point that Woodrow Wilson did air the original “The Birth of a Nation” in the White House.
Point that the Klan did show in force at the 1924 Democratic Convention
Point that the Republican Party has always been against slavery and discrimination against not only different races but sexes as well.

Is this something that I feel someone especially those that are for the Democratic Party to watch? Most definitely, especially if you are black.

Overall rating I give it a 3 out of 5 stars to watch.

Stop falling for the propaganda (Biblical grounds for not voting Democrat)


But what is this “propaganda”?
It is the belief that you have no say so in the way your government handles issues. It is the belief that those you, yourself place into office know better than you yourself do. It is the belief that there is a separation between church and state.
In this last sentence here is what is true: The government cannot make a religion. Example: the Church of England which the head of this church is Queen Elizabeth. This was placed into the First Amendment of the Constitution for this very reason. Why? So the government cannot dictate to you how or who you are to worship, which is the very next statement in the same amendment. This is the only separation of church and state ever meant by the founding fathers of this nation.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Does this mean that the church cannot stick its nose into the government? No it does not.
John Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymen stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.
Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. “[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”
Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary said, “[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.”
So the influence of the church and of God are mandatory to the very existence of this nation per the founding fathers of this very nation. They understood the importance of placing God first in ALL things.
Now keeping these three quotes in mind above why support an organization that wishes to remove God from it. This is their stance of “faith”:
“Faith. Faith has always been a central part of the American story, and it has been a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history. We know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith and the countless acts of justice and mercy it inspires. Faith- based organizations will always be critical allies in meeting the challenges that face our nation and our world—from domestic and global poverty, to climate change and human trafficking. People of faith and religious organizations do amazing work in communities across this country and the world, and we believe in lifting up and valuing that good work, and finding ways to support it where possible. We believe in constitutionally sound, evidence-based partnerships with faith-based and other non-profit organizations to serve those in need and advance our shared interests. There is no conflict between supporting faith-based institutions and respecting our Constitution, and a full commitment to both principles is essential for the continued flourishing of both faith and country.”

This is closest they ever get to acknowledging God. It is just a punch of political double talk, it has no meaning or value it is just there to placate and subdue. They do not plan or want to have God first in anything they do. In fact their actions show they actually wish God, the Bible and Christianity removed from everything and everywhere.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
So what is good? To a true Christian it is to place God first and to follow His teachings as set forth within the Bible. So if the Bible states something is a sin and you know it is a sin and do nothing to stop and even encourage it you are guilty of this sin.
We are told to reprove, rebuke and exhort (2 Timothy 4:1-5) when we do this as instructed within the Bible to do people accuse us of judging them. Yes it also says within the Bible not to judge, but there is a difference. When it refers to those that judge they are guilty of the same sin and also are not working with scripture. Those that stay within scripture and can point out with evidence from within the Bible are not judging but are following what the Bible tells them to do… To reprove…. To rebuke… And then then exhort you with longsuffering to turn from your sin and return unto God and His teachings within the Bible. In most cases those that accuse you of judging are feeling the guilt within and lash out at you because deep down they know you are right.
So back on topic. The Democratic Party denies there is a God.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
This one sentence given by Jesus Christ should be enough to cause those that call themselves Christian to turn their backs upon the Democratic Party, but still many participate and vote Democratic, even though by doing so they are going against God as stated in James 4:17. What this means is that they wish to befriend the world and use the platitude “love the sinner, but hate the sin.” What they forget is that to love the sinner they must reprove, rebuke and exhort them NOT to sin. Look at the verses that follow closely:
1 Corinthians 6: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor pedophiles, nor homosexuals, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
What I want you to note is not what you expect. Look at: “And such were some of you”.
This is a key statement. It is stated in the past tense. They are no longer guilty of this for they have stopped doing it because they truly accept Christ as their Savior and were filled with the Holy Spirit. There are those that say you can live in sin and still be one with God. This is a lie. We are told to separate ourselves from those that sin. Since the Democratic Party supports homosexuality and says to them that not only can they stay this way but that they can now wed is embracing sin. Since it is through the efforts of the Democratic Party that Planned Parenthood commits Abortions and then cuts up the bodies of these dead human fetuses that they themselves killed is a sin. And they openly support it. I have evidence from both of my Senators that are both Democrats that they plan on continuing to support the funding of Planned Parenthood.
Harry Reid proudly announced in an interview that he lied about Mitt Romney to destroy his election. Barack Obama lied to the American public about the benefits of Obamacare. Hilary Clinton has been caught time and again in lie after lie about her e-mail server.
Proverbs 6: 16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Proverbs 19: 9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
John 8: 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
In addition we are instructed within the Bible to avoid those that divide us and do so with fancy speeches. This again describes most in power within the Democratic Party
Romans 16: 17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
So here is where the Democratic Party Stands:
1) They deny God
2) They support and openly encourage sin
3) They embrace lying
4) They divide us with the use of good words and fair speeches
James 4: 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
So it is clear that due to the denial of God, the open support of sin and the proud admissions of lying that any that truly call themselves “Christian” must now make a choice. It is a simple one. God or the Democratic Party. It is up to you, but remember now that you have read this post it is something that will be placed within your book that is being written by an angel that watches over you, that watches over you all of every single moment of every day. (Psalms 139)
Cast out evil and use your power at the ballot box and remove ALL Democrats from office due to their official stance upon God and their open support of sin. No longer call yourself a “Democrat.” I myself call myself “Unaffiliated.” Find those that truly support and live the values set forth within the Bible and know that even in the Republican Party there are wolves in sheep clothing amongst them as well, but at least they official acknowledge there is a God.

Do not think you can still mix within the Democratic Party and try to fix it from the inside-out. You must understand that most within it have embraced the world. They will not leave it. You cannot fix it. The Democratic Party is a lost cause to Christianity. The only way to fix it is to cause its destruction, which can only occur by its collapse due to a mass reduction of support for their actions, their candidates and their openly worldly policies.
This is a nation OF the People and FOR the people. Not those in power, but the PEOPLE. It is your actions that dictate where this nation goes. If you sit in your home and do not participate in the process that governs this nation then know this inaction can be used against you at the Great White Throne Judgement as well. It is time to show your faith and beliefs. You can no longer sit quietly and pray only. It is time to become an “activist Christian” in the political process of this nation, since we are to place religion into the government process. Become someone of action for God.
What are these actions? Writing your government representatives and show them your values and insist they support them, if they do not, remove them from office even to the point of a recall vote. Voting at ALL elections. Actively seeking candidates that truly support God’s values and teachings. If you can find none then you must run for office yourself. Remove any from office that have been in Washington for over a decade and especially do not follow the teachings of the Bible. Teach and spread the word of the Bible to ALL, get out of your house, get out of your churches and get involved and do this 365 days of the year, especially at your job. Let it be known to the world that you serve God and His son the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not live in fear, but be proud to call yourself a child of God.

Pride: the killer of a nation


Why do I say this? I have listened and I have read the reasons people are saying why they will not vote for the person with the best change to defeat the criminal Hilary Clinton. When you boil it down and get to the root of the issue. All I hear is “pride.”
The dictionary defines “pride” as this for this particular occasion:
“The belief that you are better or more important than other people.”
But let’s not stop there let’s look at it in the Hebrew and then the Greek as well:
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
ga’own: arrogancy – arrogance – proud in an unpleasant way and behaving as if you are better or more important than other people
Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
geah: pride – arrogance
1 Timothy 3:4 – One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Tuphoo – I puff up, make haughty; pass: I am puffed up, am haughty
Haughty – unfriendly and seeming to consider yourself better than other people.
At the core of all the talk this is what I hear.
“I cannot lower myself to cast this vote.”
“I will be tarnishing my faith if I do this. I am better than this.”
Here is what the Bible states that I feel is important:
Galatians 6:1 – Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. 2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. 4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. 5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct. 6 Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them.
Philippians 2:1- Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. 3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
Should we not be thinking of other?
Should we not being thinking of that unborn child yet to be conceived that will be killed before it can even breathe it first breath of air?
Should we not be considering those that are poor and suffering because of open boarders which is allowing those that will work illegally for less than the minimum wage to steal jobs from your fellow citizens of this nation?
Will we allow those that would steal your security from you so that they may make you cower in fear since the lawless will become more emboldened?
If the answer to these questions is “yes, yes, yes and no.” Then we should humble ourselves and swallow our pride and push the button for that person that is most likely not to cause those very thinks I just mentioned form taking place. These very things which are guaranteed under Hilary Clinton.
Romans 12:1 – And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. 3 Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.

There is a need for clarification in the “Lying Ted” label, Biblically.


This is a label that has not gone away. It is a label that was spoken of by the presidential nominee for the Republican Party, Donald Trump.
It has to do with Dr. Carson heading home for a change of clothes. A staffer in Ted Cruz’s election committee released a false narrative on why Dr. Carson was doing this. This action was not known nor supported by Senator Cruz. When the senator became aware he addressed it quickly and fired the staffer and then publicly apologized to Dr. Carson. Dr. Carson did not accept this apology, which is not how the Bible instructs us to act, but we are all human and flawed.
Donald Trump took advantage of this situation and so labeled the senator as “Lying Ted,” even though there was no factual foundation for this label, thus it was a lie.
Millions of voters jumped upon this bandwagon and to this day this the label has stuck.
Now that the facts of reality have been established let’s look at this from the Biblical point of view.
Let’s start with the point that Mr. Trump assigned a label to someone in a false narrative.
When someone calls someone a liar yet the very act of doing so is a lie, is per Matthew 7 hypocrisy.
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. 6 “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.”
So per the Bible the Republican Party nominee for the Presidency is a self-proclaimed hypocrite. There is nothing we can do to change this now so we are stuck with this choice, which bring us to Daniel 4:17.
“For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”
But back to the main purpose of this article.
So we have per the Bible established three facts.
1) Mr. Trump lied.
2) Mr. Trump has made himself a hypocrite
3) Mr. Trump has publicly stated he has never felt the need to repent his sins unto God or His Son Jesus Christ.
So what is to happen to liars per the Bible?
Revelation 21:8 “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
John 8:44 – For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Proverbs 13:5 – The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace.
Exodus 23:1 – You must not pass along false rumors. You must not cooperate with evil people by lying on the witness stand.
1 Timothy 1:8 – We know that the law is good when used correctly. 9 For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders. 10 The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching 11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.
So that lays the foundation of what God thinks of liars, now let’s move on to hypocrisy.
James 1:26 – If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. 27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
Romans 2:1 -You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things. 2 And we know that God, in his justice, will punish anyone who does such things. 3 Since you judge others for doing these things, why do you think you can avoid God’s judgment when you do the same things? 4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
1 John 2: 7 Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before. 8 Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining. 9 If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is still living in darkness. 10 Anyone who loves a fellow believer[b] is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.
Think that covers that, so let’s move on to repentance.
1 John 1:8 – If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.
Luke 13:1 – About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple. 2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered? 3 Not at all! And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God. 4 And what about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them? Were they the worst sinners in Jerusalem? 5 No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.”
Acts 17:30 “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him. 31 For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.”
So here is how the Bible see the actions of Donald Trump at the time he called Ted Cruz “Lying Ted.” As of now he has made no public attempt to apologize for his actions. There are those that say he has asked Christ to be his Savior yet we must remember the Bible also says this:
James 2: 14 – What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? 15 Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, 16 and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? 17 So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. 18 Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” 19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless? 21 Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was shown to be right with God by his actions when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. 23 And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. “He was even called the friend of God. 24 So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone. 25 Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. 26 Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.
But what are works?
First and foremost to place God at the center of your life and in every single aspect of it.
Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
This does not just apply for each and every person that professes to be “Christian,” but also for nations.
When doing this you place all the teaching of the Bible at the core of your everyday life. Yet millions that profess to be “Christian” do not do this.
It is rumored that he is new to Christianity, yet this does not excuse his past behavior. In fact it is required as was read above in repentance that he amend his past behavior whenever possible.
Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.’ 22 But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell. 23 “So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God. 25 “When you are on the way to court with your adversary, settle your differences quickly. Otherwise, your accuser may hand you over to the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, and you will be thrown into prison. 26 And if that happens, you surely won’t be free again until you have paid the last penny.
So with this foundation we see that Donald Trump is in the wrong and his action speak more of the world than of Christianity, yet millions of those that profess to be “Christian” flock to this man and say that Ted Cruz as wronged him. They insist that he is still “Lying Ted.” So they have born false witness against their neighbor.
So let’s look at how Donald Trump does behave. He is arrogant, he looks upon others and calls them evil names and parades himself to be better than any other person.
2 Timothy 3:1 – You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
Gee that describes Donald Trump to a tee. So Christians are to stay away from him, yet millions gather about him and hang upon every word. Yet since we are to stay away from him does this not mean he is of the world? So what does the Bible say about those that call themselves to be the bride of Christ yet they seek out the world?
James 4:4 – You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. 5 Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him. 6 And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. 9 Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
You have made of yourselves adulterers to Christ.
Yet due to this adultery we have only two real choices in this election, since the adulterers rejects those that were a better reflection of Christ. Both that are left are the lowliest, yet we must choose one. Is it the one that denies the very existence of God and thinks of herself as above the law and so above God? (Titus 3:1; Daniel 4:17) Or is it the one that knows there is a God but shows no real repentance.
Unfortunately we must choose one, but we must choose even though it is onerous and goes fully against our faith as true followers of Jesus Christ.
It must be Donald Trump, but unless he shows that he has changed truly for the glory of God we must replace him in the next election cycle with someone that is a better reflection of the Son of God.

2 Timothy 4:1-5

When those that think they are doing right when in reality, they are not


Here is one of the greatest challenges to any within humanity. Truly understanding if their actions are or ever would be considered “right.”
To have an understanding of this we must come to an agreement on what is “right.” Well for thousands of years there was such a document that did establish what is “right.”
For nearly fifteen hundred years those that were rich or had power knew the truth of what can be called “right.” Yet due to the infallibility of all humanity most fell prey to those sins and lusts that usually effect those that are rich and powerful. They desire more of both. Is this then what is “right?” in their minds they justified it to being so, yet in reality their actions for the majority were not right nor were they even close to being right.
Then this document came into mass circulation for even the most common of humanity to be able to read it.
They saw the corruption and sought, many times in vain to correct what was wrong with what was truly right.
Now we come to today’s society. Here we see those that protest the mistreatment of this group or that group. They take offence to how words are spoken. They take offence to how one group is treated differently in their eyes from another group. Is this the true pursuit of what is “right?” The answer to that is no. Yet if you say this you have automatically offended them and you are labeled the one who hates, when this is the furthest thing from the truth.
What is truly “right” can still be found within this document. This document is the Bible. This is where you can find what is “right.”
Then what is “right?”
It is the act of placing God at the center of all your actions and all your words. It is following the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is accepting Christ as your Savior and submitting ourselves to seeking after it till we are called to heaven that is what is truly “right.”
Yet there are many that will deny this and call people like myself, lunatic, mad man, and idiot.
Why? For this is not want they have been taught is “right.” They will strive to diminish and abolish what is “right,” for to them what is truly right is their freedom to live their lives as they see fit, no matter if it is acceptable to the “right” and the “norm” that has been established for thousands of years. For they have grown where those in the past of not grown, per them.
Yet if you read the Bible it is shown how many in the past that are considered to be sinners desired the exact some type of “right,” as they are seeking.
This in itself shows that they are not seeking after what is “right,” because it, in their eyes, is not the same unrighteousness as was born by those in the past.
Yet that is exactly what it truly is unrighteous.
You show them the truth, and they deny it, they reject it, why?
For to acknowledge it would mean they have hurt people in their selfish lusts and desires, they have hurt themselves. They fear that if what is truly “right” is righteous then they are doomed.
For they see no way out of being in the wrong.
Yet this is not what Jesus Christ promised us all. He have given us a way to seek after “right” and “righteousness” and it all lies through Him. All they need do is acknowledge Him and turn their backs upon unrighteousness, no matter its form. From living in sin to seeking after the destruction of others.
They must place God first in every action and every aspect of their lives for a failure to do so ends only in misery and agony that will last for all eternity.

A child’s mistakes


I was reading the other day where someone talked to Dobson about Trump’s “recent” acceptance of Christ as his Savior.
One sentence just got a hold of me and I have not been able to shake it.
“He is a babe in his faith.” I maybe paraphrasing this, but this was the point Dobson was making about Trump not appearing to act like a Christian.
Why it bothers me is this. The Bible makes it clear that when you accept Christ as your Savior your entire “self” changes. Is it a 100% change overnight? In most cases no it is not. I myself have been growing in my faith for thirty-one years, but I did make every effort to reflect my faith in Christ as best I could. Was I right in some of my perceptions of how someone should act and behave once saved? The answer is the simplest of all. No.
Why?
Because I was taking my faith and how it should appear by what I heard from humanity and not from the Bible. This a failing that most that call themselves “Christian” are now living themselves. They are living a life that is not Biblical and so in not truly “Christian.” That is why we now live in the era of the lukewarm. That is why those with eyes see and those with ears hear what is true and see the errors thousands if not millions that call themselves “Christian” are suffering from.
In the piece I read Dobson made no statement on how he is helping Trump to grow in his supposed new found faith. In fact from the way it was described Dobson had heard the confession to follow Christ as a second-hand statement. He himself never heard Trump ever confess his salvation to him in person.
Once in the courts this would not even be allowed. This was when the law meant something in this nation.
So why didn’t Dobson stand up to the plate and offer to take Trump under his wing and offer to guide him in learning how to grow in his faith? He could have, but the article did not mention it. This, however, is the problem with many in today’s clergy. They ask people to accept Christ, but it is extremely rare to see them guide them through these newborn steps toward an understanding of their new found belief that Christ is their Savior. Yet this is exactly what the Bible states MUST be done and it is to be done by church leaders, for if it does not these newborn babes in Christ falter and fall away truly becoming the lukewarm. A class of faith that is worse than the denial that there even is a God.
This is the very reason it took me nearly most of this last thirty-one years to reach a place that I feel I am on a solid foundation of the scripture and understanding in context the true message of Jesus Christ my Savior. This is why we now live in a time where there are more lukewarm than true and solid people that when they call themselves “Christian” it would be a reality, not a word spoken that has no meaning even to those that profess they are. Unaware of their own blindness to the true concepts of the teachings of Christ, which state clearly that you must place all others before yourself as an example.
Most that call themselves parents strive for the most part to guide and scold their children when required so that they grow into an adult to be proud of. That is the desire of Jesus Christ for those that ask Him into their hearts. Yet I see no true growth in Trump at this time. I still see the lies and the misguided statements that remind me more of a “Democrat” than of a “Republican.”
Now there are those asking why I had to mention the Democratic Party. That is simple. They removed during a previous convention the very mention of God from their platform. They have officially rejected that there is a God. Is it possible that one day the Republican Party may do the same? This could happen.
Why do I think this?
Because people no longer read the Bible. A majority take the words of other humans and accept that they are telling them the truth. Why? Because they have a title or a degree that says you must listen to their words for they have studied and learned the Bible. Since they have spent so much time studying how can they be wrong. Yet they are wrong. This is shown in the mere fact that there are so many factions within the “Church” itself. If we all knew the Bible we there would be no Baptist, no Catholics, no Presbyterians, there would be just Christians of one mind and one body.
That is why the Bible says we must learn the word of God ourselves and never to take the word of others at face value, but to confirm that what they say is true and accurate. This is how a child in their faith can grow into a spiritual adulthood. They need a mentor, they need to be instructed in the correct ways to learn the word of God and then when they make errors, which we all do and will continue to do till we are called into heaven, they will be corrected. Either in a calm and gentle manner or if need be scolded when they do something that is totally opposite the true teaching of the Bible which many do. An example of this would be getting a speeding ticket. For when you speed you are in violation of Titus 3:1. Yet people will say: “I was going with the flow of traffic.” So they were going along with other humans that are breaking the word of God as well and this is their justification for disobeying God? Yea I don’t see that holding up well when they stand before God one day.
This is why they need to read the King James Bible for it is the closest to the original message that was finished being penned 1900 years ago. Then we should strive to learn the original meaning of the words in Hebrew and Greek with the aid of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, which can be found online by the way. This is how someone grows in their faith.
Yet it is not just knowledge of the word of God, but it is applying it to everyday life. It has been said that the best study of the Bible is Satan himself. This is extremely true. You can know the word of God from cover to cover but if you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ than all your knowledge means nothing on that day you stand before God and His son.
Ponder and think upon these facts.

The sales pitch is on.


I am reluctantly listening, when able to the RNC convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
So far most of those that have made it to the airwaves, and also the on air hosts have, for the most part, joined in the sale pitch to push and to glamorize and glorify the presumptive RNC nominee.
Now I have regrettably been forced, mainly due to the actions of the other party’s nominee and those in the current government, to already vote for this man. Again I hate that I have been forced into this predicament, due to the weak minds and gullibility, due to improper education of most of the voting majority of this nation.
The biggest failure has been with the so-called “church” itself. Those that profess to be “Christian” yet have no true understanding of true belief and of God, Jesus and the Bible. These were those that voted for this man.
They have seen a showman and have swallowed his used car salesman pitch hook line and sinker. And I do truly mean “sinker.” A weight that will pull them even further into turmoil.
I hear the salespersons on the radio and on the TV. They sing his praises as if they are sing a psalm to and about God.
He is a man. He is a human. He is not Jesus the Son of God who took human form.
He will let you down. He will disappoint you.
Has this not been proven a reality with Barak Obama? Yes it has.
I still remember hearing my co-workers in 2008 singing that man’s praises. Yet today you will not hear one even admit they voted for the man.
Christians are not to vote as looking to humanity for an answer. They Israelites did this. They begged and pleaded from God for a king. God held off as long as He could. He gave the Israelites the judges. One of these judges was Samson. A man who became vain and self-centered. A man who did not realize the errors of his ways till God cast him down to the level of an ox and allowed his blinding. It was not until he had no sight that he saw the truth.
How did he redeem himself? Destroyed a temple and the pagans within it as well as himself.
When the nation finally united under one king. That king, committed adultery and murder. Yet he too saw the truth, but at great cost to himself. He lost his son, he had his blessing from God removed and was not allowed to build a temple to God.
Humanity needs to stop seeking salvation from other humans.
Humanity will ALWAYS fail you. Humanity will always fall for corruption and destruction.
There is only one way to salvation and that is through asking Jesus Christ to be your Savior. Then once that is done, to fully read and seek to truly understand for entire Bible. Not a verse here or there, which can be misunderstood when stated out of context.
You must come to learn the Bible in context and with full understanding for only then can you learn the true way to full and complete salvation.
Don’t listen to the sales pitch, look to the quality of the product you are “buying.” If the quality is flawed and breaks then it is not worthy of your investment.
