I know this is a re-hash but it is that important: Why Christians should never vote for Trump

I start straight from the Bible:

2 Peter 2:1 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Trump has made it clear He is unrepentant. He has made it clear that he has committed adultery many times and would never stop committing adultery. Luke 16:19; Exodus 20:14; Proverbs 6:32
1 John 3: 7 Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. 8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.
Isaiah 29:13 – And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote
2 Peter 2:2 – And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
The other day John Boehner called Ted Cruz Satan and then turned his support to Trump.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
NLT – In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money
Trump tax plan – All other Americans will get a simpler tax code with four brackets – 0%, 10%, 20% and 25%. If you make less than $25000 … zero taxes ($0 to $25000 = 0; $25001 to $50000 = 10%; $50001 to 150000 = 20%; 150001 and up 25% but major corporation loop holes still in place). So since tax loop holes in place approximately 19% of the American public would carry the tax burden for the nation… those making between $50001 to 150000.
Cruz tax plan – Under the Simple Flat Tax, the current seven rates of personal income tax will collapse into a single low rate of 10 percent. For a family of four, the first $36,000 will be tax-free. The Child Tax Credit will remain in place, and the Simple Flat Tax Plan expands and modernizes the Earned Income Tax Credit with greater anti-fraud and pro-marriage reforms. As a result, the Simple Flat Tax will ensure that low- and middle-income Americans have greater opportunities (all major corporation loop holes removed) tax burden even across the board.

4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
NLT – Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done. They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight. They are a disgrace and a stain among you. They delight in deception even as they eat with you in your fellowship meals.
Trump delights and is proud of his lies and makes no attempt to hide them.
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
They are empty vessels filled with nothing but themselves and their lies. And what is the fate of those that call themselves “Christian” that continue to follow them?
NLT 18 – They brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. With an appeal to twisted sexual desires, they lure back into sin those who have barely escaped from a lifestyle of deception. 19 They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you. 20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
They are following the road to damnation and no longer salvation and as a result they shall suffer more for they once knew the salvation of Jesus Christ.

Understanding the word “conservative”

It is defined as this from the “Cambridge Dictionaries Online”-
“tending to emphasize the importance of preserving traditional cultural and religious values, and to oppose change, esp. sudden change”
Traditional – existing in or as part of a tradition; long-established. synonyms: long-established, customary, time-honored, established, classic, accustomed, standard, regular, normal, conventional, usual, orthodox, habitual, set, fixed, routine, ritual;
Religious values – Religious values are ethical principles founded in religious traditions, texts and beliefs. In contrast to personal values, religious-based values are based on scriptures and a religion’s established norms.
This is the core definition of what a “conservative” is and should be. However in two recent occasions I heard things that do not follow this definition.
The first was during a symposium on marriage during the 2016 CPAC conference. One of the people there supported homosexual marriage and yet called himself conservative.
The second was from a broadcast from Breitbart News on SiriusXM, in which the host of the weekday morning broadcast stated that religion had no place in conservativism.
This is counter to the definition of “preserving traditional cultural and religious values” so in my eyes this person at CPAC and host of Breitbart Mr. Stephen K. Bannon should not call themselves “conservative” but “progressives.”
Progressivism is a broad philosophy based on the Idea of Progress, which asserts that advancement in science, technology, economic development, and social organization are vital to improve the human condition.
Simply translated a progressive believes that humanity does it all and there is no need to include God into the equation and those that adhere to the belief in a God are out of touch with reality. This is totally counter to what a conservative is, but this is the mind set of those in today’s society since God has been removed from schools for fifty years now.
They have fallen for these misguided beliefs and feel that the existence of God is a misnomer due to all the corruption and ugliness within society. What they do not realize is that this corruption, even though present in the past has grown like a cancer throughout society today due to the mere fact that GOD WAS REMOVED.
Mark 7:20 – And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
When God is removed from the picture and they are not shown that God must be the center of their lives and they must accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. The result is corruption and ugliness for that is all that humankind is capable of causing. Look to the French Revolution, which led to Napoleon; look at Socialism which turned into Communism which led to millions dying in Siberian Gulags; look at Nazism which led to the Holocaust. These are examples of where God was removed from the equation.
So to be a true conservative you must maintain that there is a God and that the teachings within the Bible are to be followed.
That being said at this time many that call themselves “conservative” are following a candidate for president that totally opposes all the true “conservative values.” That person is Donald Trump. In fact if you listen to him, other than the fact that he has no true plans and how to accomplish ANY of what he states he will do, he actually talks like a “progressive.” This means he is opposed to God, this was proven when he stated his favorite verse in the Bible is “an eye for an eye,” the last verse any true Christian would ever support. Yet millions that say they are “Christian” support him. What does this say about these people? The answer to that is not one they wish to hear and it is not good.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: An echo from the past seen through the imperfect mirror called humanity

As I watched both the “King of the Kings” and the “Son of God” this holy Easter weekend. It struck me suddenly as I watched the sentencing of Jesus that Passover day nearly two thousand years ago. I watched as Pilate asked the gathered crowd before him which of the two men, Barabbas or Jesus he should release.
In reality we do not know the makeup of the crowd as has been portrayed multiples times in shows and movies. What we do know was the choice and the choice was made by the people.
What struck me and caused me to look upon this sentencing in a new light was the events the United States finds themselves in one again. The selection of a president of this nation. What has caused me to make this comparison between the two was how the Republican primaries have been unfolding.
It has come down to two men for the people of the nation to choose from. Now there will be those that will insist that this comparison is foolhardy on my point. Why this is, is because they have no true understanding of the salvation of Jesus Christ, which was given unto all humanity willing to hear and answer when He rose from the dead three days after that very trial.
For any that truly hear and understand when they think upon this comparison they will see exactly that which I have seen myself.
On the one hand we have our Barabbas. He is a liar. He lives in lust and freely admits that he has cheated upon his many wives including the fact that he will do the same with the current one. He graves after money and power, prideful and arrogant. He says he will accomplish great wonders yet the very next day or even the very next hour he states something totally opposite. Yet still millions flock behind him and call him savior of the nation. The Bible shows him to be a false teacher as seen in the words of 2 Peter 2. Yet still millions flock behind him and call him savior, and no I am not being flippant with the word “savior.” For when you look at what these people say and how they respond and act when they are challenged. The worship him and adore him as that very word “savior.”
Now we have had at minimum three possibly four men in the Republican primaries that can be called “Christian.” Those that were a better reflection than what is left were not supported by the people. Now we are down to one that even comes close to reflecting Jesus Christ. Is he good reflection of Jesus? No, but who is. What can be said is that he is a better reflection than any other of either party that this nation picks from.
So we have a Barabbas and we have a weak reflection of Jesus. Yet how has the vote been going? To date the people as in that time two thousand years ago have been picking Barabbas over the best choice. It is sad that it is not the man that will be crucified but this nation which will be placed upon that cross this time.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: the shallow Christian

Yesterday, after the primary results were released about Arizona and Utah a blaring fact was made clear. Christianity is no longer a true faith, but a group of people living within a machination that they use as an excuse to feel they are redeemed, saved and able to be welcome in heaven.
I decided to make a small comment on a radio personalities Facebook page. It was clear and to the point. That point being that Mormons, a group of people that have been convinced by another book that their founder added to the Bible, in other words a cult, showed more knowledge of the true Bible then those that profess to be “Christian.”
Let’s just look at this last Tuesday’s primary results. Per Pew Research, 53% of the people of the state of Arizona say they are “highly religious” ( Now Utah is said to have 64% that state this, but we must also note that Utah is the home of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and as was point out above have added to the Bible, which is seen as a cult by Christendom (
Now as I have pointed out in a previous post. Donald Trump fit the description of a false teacher ( Now as was shown to me yesterday there are those that think just because Mr. Trump does not profess to be a religious person he cannot be called a false teacher. Is his actions those of the world? Yes they are, then he is of the world. Does he profess to be knowledgeable and command your attention? Yes, then he is a teacher and since he does not follow the Bible he is a false one. A false teacher is a still false even though he is not of a religion and turns you away from the truth of the Bible.
Now that we have the ground work established. Here is the percentage of the vote for a Donald Trump the false prophet and for Ted Cruz the man who is human, but is a better reflection of Jesus Christ than Mr. Trump ever will be.
47.1% or 249,916 people voted for Mr. Trump in Arizona.
24.9% or 132,147 people voted for Mr. Cruz.
Now this is from a state as shown above is said to be 53% “highly religious.”
Now let’s look at Utah with a Mormon population that is 58% of the state per
Donald Trump got 14.0% or 24,864 people
Ted Cruz received 69.2% or 122,567 people
This is how the polls should look when all those that call themselves “Christian” vote for the person that is the closest reflection of Jesus Christ.
NOTE: Since Mr. Kasich has shown he supports Homosexual marriage (see first Republican debate) he is on par with Mr. Trump and not Mr. Cruz.
This vote is both a blessing and curse. For God has given the citizens of the nation the ability to show their belief in God and their faith in Him by choosing the leaders of this nation. When we do not vote our belief in God or His Son the Lord Jesus Christ but for our personal wants, desires and lusts; than the voter is voting for sin and the world and are showing the curse of the vote, not its blessing. So they are showing that they are shallow Christians, or as the Bible says that which they are, which is hypocrites.

The vote, an instant snapshot of where you stand in your belief of God

“But that doesn’t tell anyone if they belief in God.” Will be the first thing people will say or think when they see this title, which is why it is entitled this way.
The vote is a snapshot into your state of mind. It shows how you were raised, it shows how you were educated. It shows if you have studied the person you are voting for or if you are just reacting to what is popular, what others are basically telling you is the way to vote. If this is not a look into your mind, then what is? The answer is there is nothing else that fits this description. So yes it can be said it is a look into your belief of God.
This election has shined a light on the beliefs of the voters more than it has ever before. It has shown that this nation is in dire need of returning to God and the teachings of the Bible.
The news pundits have made it very clear the importance of this very fact. They say that the “evangelicals” otherwise known as “Christians” are spit in their vote. But if you listen carefully that is actually not true, but at the same time it is true. They go on to say that those that practice their faith have not voted for Donald Trump, which is has it should be since he per the Bible fits the description of a false teacher (2 Peter 2). However, these votes have been split between mainly Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Those that are active in their faith are in reality the true Christians, because they are active in their belief of God and strive to follow the teachings within the Bible. Anyone can say they are “Christian,” but it is their actions, the way they think, what they say and how they vote that shows if they are truly a believer.
This is why the vote is an instant snapshot of where you stand in your belief of God.
Someone that does truly belief there is a God, and that this life we now live is merely a stepping stone to that which is greater and eternal will strive to reflect the Son of God and His teachings.
These teachings include calling a sin a sin, for He died upon a cross for these sins. We are told that once we accept Him as our Savior to continue to live in sin is an insult unto Jesus Himself, and those that do this are in actuality not a child of God, but of His adversary, Satan (1 John 3).
So then how a person votes shows how their mind is attuned to the teachings of the Bible, and how informed they are about who they are voting for and how willing they are to listen not only to God, but upon what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears.
Then when it comes time to vote, they will be voting as God desires, but if they do not listen as was witnessed in 2012, God’s wrath will ultimately come into play. As has happened in the last eight years with the destruction of this nation’s image throughout the world, amongst other things.
Those that truly know God, knows that He must be first in ALL that we do. Since the vote is included in “all” then we must think. Is this someone that reflects God? If the answer is no, then that person is someone we should not vote for. If they curse, are vulgar, support sin and declare that sin is more important than God, they are not “Christian,” and so should not have our support for how they act reflects upon us and in reflection upon us reflects upon God.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: my statement to Breitbart

At the end of the show on Patriot you had a phone call, which at the end of which it was thrown out the need to separate church and state.
I have to say I was taken aback by these words coming out of the host mouth. Here is the reason. I see any that throw out that belief to be on the left, yet this is called a conservative show.
The Constitution says the government cannot establish or as the less informed would say “make” a government run religion. It then goes on to state that the government cannot to quote “impeding the free exercise of religion.” That is all it says. This means that every court decision that for example removed God from school, removed the Ten Commandments from public property were in fact a violation of the first amendment. Since the court is a branch of the government and their decisions impeded the free exercise of religion.
Should religion be involved in government? You have said no it should not. I say it must be involved. Should Ted Cruz be using it as a shield? No he should not, but it is something he should not be ashamed to state either. Does he throw it out there too much? Possibly.
Does making religion be involved in government make a theocracy? No it does not. William Penn was a Quaker, yet most of how the Constitution and the Bill of Right which was formulated and then finalized, was based upon the colony of Pennsylvania’s constitution written by him. Is this nation a theocracy? No it is not, yet it was in basic senses written by a religious person.
One of the main reason this nation is in decline is due to the fact that God was removed from our schools. Here is what the Bible does say:
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.”
Titus 3:1 – Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.
As for the misquoted statement of “give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God which is God’s” that is referring to tithing otherwise known as taxes when referring to the government end.
Any that call themselves Christian should always place God first (Mark 12:29-30). If you place God first and foremost in your mind then God IS always involved in all that you do even in government. Otherwise government is impeding the free exercise of having God involved in your life.
Many chose not to have religions involved in their lives and that is their choice, but to continually state that the church and state must be separate is actually socialist and communist thinking. God must be involved in everything especially the governing of a nation, whose existence is controlled by God per Daniel. So you must have religion involved, but not to the point of a theocracy, but still involved.

Tomorrow’s primary vote…. PLEASE READ

In a previous post I showed straight from the Bible how Trump fully fits the description of a false teacher (A true reflection of 2 Peter 2). Now I am fully aware that many will vote for him. I wish they would not for the reason I just stated. I have also shown that no one that calls themselves “Christian” should ever support anyone from the Democratic Party (Stop falling for the propaganda [Biblical grounds for not voting Democrat]).
Will people listen to me? That in itself is laughable. Not because people do not read these post, but people do not truly believe in most cases what I am saying. Why? Because not enough people know the Bible.
The Bible clearly states that we are to place God first in EVERYTHING that we do. That includes voting. So if we place our Creator first, by using the teachings of the Bible we are to pick the person that is the best reflection of Jesus Christ. Someone that is servant leader.
At this time due to the number of delegates already won by the candidates. There is only two Republican candidates at this time. Since we as Christians should not vote for Trump or the Democrats that leaves only one person we should vote for.
Following what was just stated. Tomorrow do not vote for Trump, Kasich or Rubio, and never vote for any person for any position of the Democratic Party.

A true reflection of 2 Peter 2

Once again I was drawn to re-read 2 Peter 2. Why? For I have witnessed a false teacher and many have chosen to embrace his words.
The details of want to look for in false teachers is made very clear in this chapter of this book of the Bible. So let us look at these details.
Lust of uncleanness – lust – epithumia – desire, eagerness for, inordinate desire, lust
Uncleanness – miasmos – the act of pollution, defilement
Defilement – to violate the sanctity of; the sully, dishonor
Sully – to damage or ruin the good quality of
Despise government – despise – kataphroneo – I despise, scorn, and show it by active insult, disregard
Government – kuriotes – lordship, domination, dignity
Special note: 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.

Presumptuous – tolmetes – a daring, bold man
Selfwilled – authades – self-satisfied, arrogant, stubborn
they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities – afraid – tremo – I tremble, am afraid
to speak evil – blasphemeo – I speak evil against, blaspheme, use abusive or scurrilous language about (God or men).
Dignities – doxa – honor, renown, glory splendor
Speak evil of the things that they understand not – understand not – agnoeo – I do not know, am ignorant of
sporting themselves with their own deceivings – sporting themselves – entruphao – I revel in, live luxuriously
deceivings – apate – deceit, deception, deceitfulness, delusion
Having eyes full of adultery – adultery – moichalis – (a) an adulteress (that is, a married woman who commits adultery), (b) Hebraistically: extended to those who worship any other than the true God
that cannot cease from sin
beguiling unstable souls – beguiling – deleazo – I allure, entice by a bait
bait – An allurement; a thing intended to tempt or entice
unstable – asteriktos – (lit: unpropped), unsteady, unstable, unsettled
unpropped – having no prop : unsupported
unsupported – not supported physically, financially, emotionally, or spiritually
souls – psuche – the soul, life, self
heart they have exercised with covetous practices – heart – kardia – the heart; mind, character, inner self, will, intention, center

with covetous practices – pleonexia – covetousness, avarice, aggression, desire for advantage
2 Peter 2:17 – These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

In every single detail this describes Donald Trump. A false teacher, a corrupter of the Body of Christ.
So go ahead and continue to support him. However, in this case it is not just your sorrow, but the sorrow of all those that you say you love and those that are yet to be born in this nation.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: My take away from Super Tuesday

First I must make it clear that I believe that no leader that is in power is there without it being allowed by God.
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.
We have experienced eight years of the “lowliest of people.” Now though we see the uniqueness that God has bestowed upon the people of the United States of America for as Abraham Lincoln said we are a: “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” This means that the “lowliest of people” can include every person that has the ability to pick the leader of this nation.
This was reflected in the 2012 presidential race when millions stayed home and handed the second four year of this nation over to the person that has disgraced and torn down and apart this nation. Any sins committed by the current president that added to the death toll not only in this nation but the world is now upon their hands as well.
We are again in a position of having to vote for the lesser of two evils. However we have not quite finished with picking which of the evils we are going to be forced to vote for. It is a vote that we must make. It is not something we can pass on for we are the people. This is the uniqueness of the United States of America.
It is clear that people do not wish Washington D.C. to continue to work as it has, and all I can say is it is about time. This election is not like any other in the history of this nation though. Within this election hangs the balance of not just the moral foundation principles this nation was founded upon, but its continued belief that it is a nation “under God.”
The primaries has exposed the true flaw within this nation at this time, for the most part, even in those that profess to being “evangelical” it is corrupt, sin filled and lost. No longer following the teachings within the Bible. As a result this nation is in decline, and why? Because God is punishing this nation.
To a degree it has worked. Those that profess to be conservative, which the core meaning of this term means to follow the teachings within the Bible, are coming out to vote. They are doing the complete opposite of what occurred in 2012. However about half of them are not following the precepts set forth within the Bible of what they should seek within their leaders. Now it is important at this point to say that we are all human and we cannot find the perfect leader. That will not happen until He sets foot upon the Mount of Olives once gain.
So we must seek after someone that comes as close as possible to a servant leader. This is not the way many are thinking though. Instead they are supporting a vulgar, arrogant as well as other traits that are totally opposite that which someone calling themselves “Christian” should even be proud to say they support. It is nearly as bad as someone who would call themselves “Christian” and support any Democratic candidate since that party openly supports and even encourage multiple sins within the Bible.
Still they support this person. Why? Many say and the same time professing to be “evangelical” that he reflects them. Not that he reflects Christ, but them. That is not placing God first. That is placing themselves first. If people are not willing to humble themselves and say: “because he reflects God.” Then in reality they are being selfish, self-serving, the Bible has a name for this. It is called sin.
We had people this year that were a better refection of God, but people ignored them. Why? Because these people were not angry enough to stand for them. They did not promise great rewards in the manner these people have come to expect to get their rewards; Here and now. Again this is not Biblical. For Jesus made it clear our reward is not in this live but the next and we are to look for someone that is humble and speaks truthfully.
Now as I stated, those men are no longer in the race. We are now down to who is the lesser of the evils. We have the man that is totally oppose the values of God and is all about getting the rewards due us here and now. We have the turncoat who came in to the senate under the promise to reform that body but in last night’s election came in a strong second in Virginia because Washington D.C. voted for him. And then we have a man that has faltered in parts of his campaign with falsehoods that may or may not have been to his knowledge. With him though it appears he has kept his word for Washington D.C. dislikes him.
So who is it to be? The person who is the opposite of Jesus Christ completely. The turncoat who sold out to greed, or the person that may have approved lies?
Per the Bible it can’t be the first two, then it has to be the last.

The “Evangelical” vote

This is this great word that the media is using to define those that profess to be “Christian.”
Now when you listen carefully to those in the media they divide this group even further. They say: “those that are strong followers of their belief” and then “those that do not fully practice their belief.”
This is the important division in this statement. Because in actuality they are giving you a false image of the truth.
I have listened to or watched every primary to date as of Super Tuesday and every single time they give this division of those they are calling “evangelical and/or born again.” Every single time the will say that those that DO NOT fully practice this “evangelical belief” have overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump.
But those that DO practice their “Christian” values are split between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
What this speaks to is a complete misunderstanding of not only the media, but of the American public at large.
The term “evangelical” is defined per the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as: of, relating to, or being in agreement with the Christian gospel especially as it is presented in the four Gospels.
Now to be in agreement with the gospel or more accurately the Bible you say that your Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ and that you strive to reflect the teachings found within the Bible.
To endeavor to be a reflection of Jesus Christ you would say that you are practicing your faith. So those that they are calling “moderate and/or not following their beliefs” are per the definition given above are in reality what can be defined by the Bible itself as the “lukewarm.”
The “lukewarm” per the Bible (Revelation 3:14-22) makes it clear that in the eyes of Jesus Christ they are worse than an atheist and are spit out of the Body of Christ by Jesus Christ Himself. Simply they are not “evangelical.” They should not even be counted as that term.
What doesn’t surprise me personally is that they are showing the world what God already knows. They are not Christians. Why?
Look who they are supporting. Someone who is proud, arrogant, clearly states he has never asked forgiveness. He has been caught in lies. He is called a con-artist. He reflects everything that those that are true “Christians” would never even consider. They are voting from anger, again something that is against the teachings of the Bible.
So this misnomer that they are a reflection of the “evangelical” electorate is another attack on Christianity. An attack designed to belittle and dismiss not only Christianity, but what true Christians follow: The Bible and in so doing discount and diminish God Himself.
So per the media themselves those that practice their faith are the true “evangelical” and deserve to be called this. They though are showing their humanity as well. For there is enough evidence that shows Marco Rubio is not worthy of their vote. The biggest of these is the mere fact that those in Washington D.C. are supporting him. This says he has sold out to the greed that has corrupted this nation’s government. Does this mean Ted Cruz is worthy of their vote? There are factors that say no as well. This is why the vote is split.
What is clear is in reality we are getting a real picture of Christian faith in the United States of America. We are seeing in each primary in real time just how far this nation has fallen away from Jesus Christ. We are seeing that many who may honestly believe they are “Christian” are in fact in even worse shape spiritually than those that totally deny the existences of God.
We are seeing it is due to their hypercritical life style that they are why Christianity is failing in this once Godly nation. Now you need to understand what the word “hypocrite” means. It means to act, to play a role. This is what those that do not practice their beliefs truly are per the very definition of the word, because they do not “practice their beliefs.” Why? Because by saying they are Christian and not following the Bible wholeheartedly they are in essence playing out a role, acting as if they are faithful to Jesus. However by not following the teachings within the Bible they are just performing upon the stage of life. Then once they leave the limelight they return to their sins which are more important to them than God.
They are today’s equivalents to the Pharisees, which were the core conspirators in the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. If this one sentence does not send a wakeup call to these people, nothing ever will. This is truly a sad statement, but it is a statement that must be said. I will leave the readers here to truly think on what they just read.
