TRUMP AND THE CHRISTIANS
Pilgrims, I’m again caught on the horns of a dilemma about the false-positive analysis old Doc can’t step over, step around or pretend it is just a figment of my imagination concerning the looming Presidential Election.
I’m going to be bold and announce my voting preference, and then use scripture to defend my vote. It is a herculean task! After much prayer, I’ve decided I’ll cast my vote akin to the attitude found in the little boy who asked for a pony for his birthday. His father, ever the prankster, had a large box delivered to their house on his birthday. After the celebration and all had cake and ice cream, he was allowed to open the box. After ripping the paper and bows off the box, he opened it. It was a box filled with manure. Gasps, giggles, and shock filled the room. The little boy paused… then he jumped into the box and began slinging dung everywhere. He was ordered to stop. “What are you doing?” his father asked. Innocently, the boy replied. “I’m digging! I figure under all this poop there has to be a pony in this box someplace.”
Like the little boy in the dung-heap, I’m going to hold my nose and cast my vote for Trump. It will be the lesser of two evils.
Do I think there are more traditional, conservative, even biblically principled candidates in the race? Yes. I would love to support a candidate that quoted scripture and walked the talk. The list of candidates is slim.
I’m casting my vote for Trump for one reason: demographics. I know you can’t find that word in the Bible, but it is the one word all Christians must understand, before we vote.
God’s church on earth in the past fifty years paid little heed to this word. In fact, the only time we know about its truth and impact on our lives is when our preachers tell us about surveys and government statistics that are used to govern our lives. While the church spent its time seeking outcomes that were pleasing to heathens, Social Justice, save the Rain Forest, Feminist education, abortion on demand, rejection of Capital Punishment, are a few; Zero Population Control brought about a crisis biblical people don’t understand, don’t care about, and quickly dismiss as of little importance verses Global Warming and Ethical Treatment of Animals…which is an anathema to the Creator. If you differ, study the first few chapters of the book of Genesis.
Even today, it is said that eighty plus percent of Americans believe in God. I wonder why people lie so much. Christians and Atheists often vote for the same candidates that are avowed enemies of God and his Holy Word. Little can be ascertained by eye or ear that could convict any Republican candidate of being guilty of using the Bible to guide decisions one makes. Far less can be said about Democrats. One must look high and low to find an iota in their political platform that can be construed to come from the Bible’s principles. I’ll give them credit for accepting one biblical declaration. Jesus said, “The poor you will have with you always.” If you run a Political Plantation to enslave people, I don’t think this is what Jesus meant… then you use other peoples’ money to pay for the welfare slaves. This womb to the tomb care buys you votes, votes buys you power, and gives authority to dismiss and discount the majority’s wishes. If the majority is disgruntled, you corrupt the legal system and get favorable outcomes.
If one wanted to stretch the concept of a candidate emulating people of the Bible, Trump fits nicely. He would be comfortable at the Tower of Babble, a sympathizer with King David, only he has had several Bathsheba’s, and he could palsy-walsy with Solomon, the riches man of his time. As distasteful as that may sound, he is like a saint when put into juxtaposition with the Democrats and their ‘front-runner’ candidate and husband.
America is at a tipping-point in its history and Christians in this country will decide which direction it moves: deeper into bed with Atheists and Communist/Socialist ideology or recant and move back closer to its biblical roots.
Thanks to an aggressive Socialist President and a anti biblical government agenda, our laws now provide more protection and financial support for aliens than it does its naturalized citizens. The Muslim faith is an enemy of biblical people, and their worst Muslims, Terrorists, are waging war on a global front, and soon it will explode amongst our good people. It isn’t a matter of if, only when!
The average American citizen is quite ignorant of how the government operates, but, they do know something is ‘fishy in Denmark’ when it affects their lives. They know that their elected Congress does little to help, but too often hinders their pursuit of happiness. Their disenchantment with these elected officials has reached the point they want to emulate the Creator and blow up the entire system. Decade after decade these same political hucksters and hustlers use our tax dollars to buy votes that are usually used against the average citizen’s needs.
A Drill Instructor told me, “Son, if you take a knife to a gun fight, you’re going to lose every time.” It was his way of sending me a message about my less than stellar shooting at the range.
For most of my life, the Republican Party has not heeded those sage words of advice. The Democrats came to make war…even when all their signs said, “Make Love, not war’. Often the Republicans showed up with ‘pea shooters’ not even a knife.
The Republicans have held the majority in both houses for a year, what can our side show for its power? Nothing! We don’t even have the balls to force the President to issue a public veto on major news media.
As a Christian, I have fought diligently to keep amoral, Atheists Socialist out of Congress, with little success. I have supported candidates I thought would demonstrate the use of biblical principles and they would challenge others to follow suit, I have been greatly disappointed!
Trump needs to be a Christian’s candidate because he is the only candidate that can win in 2016. He will conduct a ‘scorched earth’ campaign and not care about body-count. When it comes to the Democrats and their candidate, he will celebrate the body-count. With a few exceptions, during my life, all Republican candidates refused to meet the enemy on the battle field and entered the arena with mixed emotions about winning the war.
Our milk-toast political campaigns have netted biblical people outcomes that God is surely unhappy with. The Bible and public prayer…except for Muslim’s, are forbidden by our own government. The debate about the origins of life does not include Creation. Condom cheerleaders (Sex Education) are in our schools, but they don’t teach abstinence as a better biblical moral choice. The Supreme Court is an enemy of biblical people.
I’m not a naïve boob that believes Trump can right this biblical ship. In fact, I don’t think anyone can or will until Christ returns. Trump can slow down the degenerate freight train that continues to change everything about America that once a citizen could be proud about. He can recognize a enemy verses an ally of America. He can negotiate. At the present time, we only compromise. He can inspire people! He doesn’t need a teleprompter to lead publically. He won’t go to Washington with the same ‘beholding’ pacts to special interests. He will rely upon the corporate business world to create decent paying jobs, and he doesn’t think it is the government’s job or that it has the ability to accomplish this task. He won’t bow to any other Countries leaders or dictators.
Independents will choose the next President. The majority of Independents usually find they are more comfortable under the Democrat liberalism/socialism flag, than a perceived restricted conservative/biblical political one. They want less government…but also less religion…especially if it comes from perceived ‘Bible-thumpers’. Trump isn’t biblical enough for a majority of Republicans, and he isn’t liberal enough for Democrats, but, he is a ‘middle-road’ candidate that will suit the political fancy of the Independents.
He says he believes in God. Even the demons do this. I’m not sure what he thinks about Jesus. If he attends church, I guess he is a C & E member. I don’t judge him because it isn’t my job as a Christian to do so.
Back to that word, demographic. Bernie Sanders, an Atheist old war horse will give Hillary a battle. Why? Because in the past three decades the millennial youth are Agnostics or Atheists, and the Conservative/biblical pool has shrunk greatly. They have rejected biblical thought. All Pilgrims can thank the Feminist agenda for this outcome. Like the foolish Democrats of the sixties, they are the new unwashed, airheads that don’t really understand anything about the world, but are determined to change it…not to please God, but Satan. Sanders’ has recruits that don’t even know who won the Civil War! Hillary does too…and any Republican candidate will too.
In my church, half the membership is Democrats! Since our spiritual leaders are part of the problem, the chances a conservative/biblical candidate can be elected is less than a snowball’s in Hell. Our goal is we must win! If we elect a person less desirable than millions of Republicans might choose, so be it. If Pilgrims demand the candidate meet the establishment’s conservative qualifiers, then we will lose.
One can howl at the moon in protest about not wanting to be a part of this fight if we abandon our perceived principles, but all that will do is hand us a trouncing at the voting booth. We must keep our eye on the target. Nothing biblical people and Conservative Republicans can ever be accomplished if we don’t defeat the enemy of the Creator.
Cruz won in Iowa, he or Rubio may win in New Hampshire, none of that matter. Iowa has six votes, New Hampshire has four. It takes two hundred-seventy votes to win an election. Our candidate must win where the Electoral votes count. Trump can deliver this vote.
If the biblical people in the Republican Party don’t unite and move forward together, America will become a Socialist/Atheist country where Biblical people will be persecuted. It is our choice. Trump is the man for the Republican Party at this time in America’s history. If we fail in this political task, we won’t get a ‘do-over’.
