Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

I have so many things to say, but no safe way to say them. I’ve been told that if I say anything, I’ll be “cancelled” by one group or another. I haven’t always done the safe thing, yet I mostly choose to do the right thing.

There are too many people with too little actual openhearted exposure to the struggles of others. Deep seated stereotypes and grievances fill the thoughts of minds to the point that nothing new can fit in. They don’t understand and may be too afraid to care about the pain of others. Facing reality is of course very scary.

We all need to seek to understand what our minority friends and neighbors are going through. And take time to listen and seek to understand the emotions they are going through. This is required if we actually love those around us.

I have seasons where my fire needs to be stoked. Often I may be upset at the situation that pushed me into a better position for my love, for my neighbor, to burn more intensely. But I understand this cycle, the Spirit moves me for the purpose He created me for. The love of God must burn more intensely within me and this causes the love for my neighbor to burn more righteously.

Jesus said these are the top two commands; love the Lord with all your mind, heart, soul and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.

Yet, I see many fellow Christians around me who are always simply going through the motions of religious ritual. They seem to refuse to be moved from their present state of smoldering. Piles of wood have been laid around them, but the wood has smothered the fire. The wood has never been allowed to dry. It stays wet with the with the heavy dew of indifference.

Now, here we are again, many minds are still closed and pyre’s formed. Their fire is no more than a small flicker trying to burn the sacrifice of faux indignation.

I’m calling you out to do something more than pose for a social media picture.

Let the hurting grieve with a shout and fierce resolve. Let us all be active to the betterment of the situation that caused the pain in our neighbors, and let us love with action and not simply words.

Love and pray deeply enough to change yourself and seek to change the circumstance of the hurting. Be a change agent. If protests are not for you, that’s fine.

What I do may not be seen in the public square, because that’s not everyone’s role, but my resolve is to be part of changing the circumstance of the hurting with the gifts and the circumstance God has given me in order to do His will. I will use my influence in my situation to bring change.

WHY HAS YOUR LOVE TURNED COLD?!

Trump Hasn’t Done Anything for Evangelicals!

Who has done it?!

I tried to hold silent all week about this kerfuffle over an article in Christianity Today magazine calling for the removal of President Trump. And I did.

I tried to hold silent when evangelical “leaders” got their feelings hurt about the article and started writing letters and posting long messages on social media about how horrible the article was and how wrong it was to question their support of President Trump. And I did stay silent for a while.

Here’s where my indignation needle went wacky.

I continually saw these evangelical “leaders” giving praise and thanks to President Trump for all the great things he has done for evangelicals.

Let me remind you all of the one truth, God did that! Donald J. Trump did not do anything for evangelicals. God did.

I know why evangelicals had to vote for Donald Trump. It is because we didn’t want the other candidate to win. We will not vote for a candidate who advocates for the abortion of babies on demand. And we will not vote for a candidate who would take away our religious freedoms. This is the same reason we have to vote for Donald Trump in 2020, because there is no better choice. I don’t know what the Lord’s plan is but He does and that’s all that matters.

Do not dare try and tell me that President Donald Trump is my hope, my safety, my protector or savior of my country.

Donald J. Trump is simply the vessel being used by God at this moment in human history to move forward His plan. Just like the rest of us, President Trump has a purpose, yet the praise always goes to the Lord.

God is my stronghold, Jesus is my savior and the Holy Spirit is my sustain. God will protect His children and God will punish the wicked. And if God chooses to continue to bless the United States of America that is His plan and we are all along for the ride.

Just like the rest of us, Donald J. Trump says some extremely ill advised things on social media and when he gets behind a microphone. This happens too often with him, and because of that he does not seem to have the emotional intelligence needed to be the President. Sometimes he makes me want to crawl under my chair when I read his social media posts. Somebody please send the man to a diversity and inclusion class! I know he doesn’t mean some of the things he says in the way that they sound, he’s just ignorant of the perceived undertones.

Pray for our president and our government, and that God would continue to bring forth His plan for our country and His people (born or unborn). But praise be to God that my real home is with Him and in His kingdom.

Let me remind you why I know who is in control.

Take a moment to reflect on Egypt and Pharaoh in the Book of Exodus. Who hardened Pharaoh’s heart? Why? God wanted to show Egypt and the Israelis who He was and His power, to bring glory to His name. Who caused pharaoh to change his mind and release Israel? God did that!

Let’s reflect on Shalmaneser king of Assyria, he was sent to punish Israel for its wicked ways. Let’s reflect on Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, sent to punish Judah for its wicked ways.

Who sent them? Who is in control?

And when the appointed king, who was sent by God, becomes arrogant and prideful, will he go unpunished? No, he will not. (See examples: King Saul, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod Agrippa, etc..)

“All this happened to Nebuchadnezzar the king. Twelve months later he was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon. The king reflected and said, ‘Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?’ While the word was in the king’s mouth, a voice came from heaven, saying, ‘King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: sovereignty has been removed from you, and you will be driven away from mankind, and your dwelling place will be with the beasts of the field. You will be given grass to eat like cattle, and seven periods of time will pass over you until you recognize that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes.’
Daniel 4:28‭-‬32 NASB

My Two Beautiful Feti

They act almost like real humans but we all know they aren’t really human. I mean they were c-section fetuses. They never actually passed through the matrix which gives humanness.

But they are doing fine.

In some ways these two fetuses are just like real humans. They eat solid food and drink water through their mouth. Actually they do things almost exactly like humans come to think of it. But they’re not real humans.

I tell the big one, “Good job bro you went poo poo in the potty.” And then he smiles with his human looking mouth.

My wife and I talked about having real human children one day but for now these fetuses keep us happy and busy.

I’m hoping fetuses are allowed to vote and be recognized as a protected class one day.

The Attempted Coup and the Useful Media Gullibles

The thirst for power has corrupted the Democratic party even more than it already was. Color me surprised. Mueller has exonerated the Trump campaign and anyone affiliated with it of collusion with Russian.

After two years, a force of hundreds and gathering opposition research on everyone who ever talked to the Trump campaign, nothing.

Oh, but all that data must be released for the Democrats to see it all under the guise of transparency. We all know why you want to see all the underlying data. You are corrupt politicians who have no morals.

Lies, divisiveness, click baiting, relevance seeking ex-“intelligence” chiefs committing treason, all of it because their candidate lost and their power was gone.

No you can’t change the rhetoric to obstruction now. You all said you had evidence of collusion and corruption. Schiff, Brennan, Clapper all lied.

Daily breaking news alerts with these power hungry spotlight worshippers trying to take control of the country by weaponizing the gullible media and our Justice Department, is treason.

It’s the same tactic our own CIA uses to take down governments in other countries.

If this happened in any other country it would be considered a coup attempt. And it was a coup attempt. And it should be treated as such.

These Democrats are the Russian assets destabilizing our country. They aren’t even hiding it, their candidates are all espousing communist ideals and disguising it behind socialism.

Dear President Obama, the 1980s are calling and they are offering us its foreign policy back, because the cold war is on and the enemy has infiltrated our country and has blinded half the people with promises of free money, cannabis and unfettered abortion access.

These are not honorable people who made an honest mistake. They are dishonorable and must be punished to the extent allowed by law.

And their allies in the media must be labeled as frauds and all press passes revoked for all government activities.

These media outlets (CNN, MSNBC) are no more than tabloids not fit for consumption. Those press passes should be given to outlets that actually investigate and distribute real news.

It is time for a full accounting of who created the fake news that kicked off this investigation and what lies were used to push this narrative. We now know this was all a ploy to gather opposition research and to grab power via future elections through dishonesty, and possibly directly orchestrated by Russia in collusion with the Democrats.

Many Will Fall Away And Will Betray One Another

At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.

Matthew 24:10‭-‬12 NASB

Have you noticed a falling away of many? How about betrayal and hate?

I know this time of devisiness in the United States is not unique. And I know that other areas of the world are experiencing turmoil of real physical consequences already.

Even this country has had times of internal struggle to the point of civil war in its past.

Yet, this current episode of venom and vitriol in the United States is particularly worrisome. Because any conflict within our borders will be seen as weakness by the adversaries of democracy that have been waiting to destroy it for so many years.

Digital manipulation of “evidence” and the rapid dissemination of that “evidence” using the internet is going to cause another war that I’m not sure this country will come back from.

A war against Christianity with the mob mentality we saw last week on social media will soon turn into real physical violence against Christians.

If propaganda through radio and newspaper helped start world wars in the past, then the digital media of today will soon bring about a war against God’s people that will escalate very quickly.

We know as Christians that our war is not against flesh and blood but against the forces of darkness in this world and spiritual forces of wickedness (Ephesians 6:12‭-‬13). So stand firm and put on the whole armor of God and be prepared to give a reason for the hope you have in Christ Jesus (1 Peter 3:14-16).

But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.

1 Peter 3:14‭-‬16 NASB
