To vote or not to vote—that is the question on the minds of a number of Christians. Sadly, it is one that has caused division among the brethren. We’re not voting for a pastor; we’re voting for a president. And this just so happens to be the most important presidential election in history. Our national sovereignty and freedoms are at stake.
Some Christians have the attitude that they shouldn’t vote, because God is in control and will choose the leader we will have. That’s the same thing as saying we don’t need to spread the gospel or be His “watchmen and on the wall.” Yes, God is in control, but He gives us the choice whether to do His will or not.
Sure, we know that, according to God’s Word, global government will happen, and it will be headed up by the Antichrist. Should we just sit back and let the globalist candidate win so it will hasten things along, and we can be supposedly be raptured that much sooner? No. Did it occur to those of this mindset that the Rapture won’t be held up if we vote against the globalist puppet? God may want us to hold on to what religious freedoms we still have and keep the United States of America’s national sovereignty until the catching away of Christ’s true followers.
What we know Hillary will do is the same thing Obama has done, which is to deliberately ruin this country. Both are Marxists—always have been from their college days. Marxists believe they must deliberately tear down this country just like the globalists believe in order to “transform” it to the system they believe in. They use social unrest and revolution to reach this goal. Obama even said during his campaign for president that he intended to “fundamentally transform” this nation. Not enough people bothered to check into his past to find out just what he meant by that. And many are just as brainwashed as Obama & Hillary, thanks to the infiltration of the Marxists/ Socialists/ Communists into our education system. All three systems of thought are closely related.
Here is an excerpt from the article “What Obama and I Learned at Columbia: How to Destroy America From Within” by Wayne Allyn Root:
“It’s always about lying to cover up the Marxist agenda of destroying the middle class, redistributing wealth, and putting big government in control of our every move. Why the lies? We were taught at Columbia that ‘It’s for the greater good’ and ‘We know what’s best for those people’ and ‘The ends justify the means.’”
This reminds me of Islam’s Qur’an with its permission to lie for the cause of Islam. It’s called taqiyya, and this radical Democrat administration has lied through its teeth countless times,and still is, as is being proven by the Wikileaks emails coming out. That’s why all of a sudden people are suddenly in the last month coming out of the woodwork, claiming Trump fondled them or made sexual remarks to them. The goal is to distract voters from reading Wikileak’s October surprise emails that prove just how corrupt Hillary and her cronies are. Those that have come out have been proven to be lying. I wonder how much they’re getting paid.
I saw a post recently from a group of Christians, accusing those of us who are voting for Trump as falling away from the faith. To back up their position they used the following article from the very liberal left Washington Post, of all places. It was written by Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. It’s titled “If Donald Trump Has Done Anything, He Has Snuffed out the Religious Right:”
It appears that Moore, a former DC Democrat staffer, by his strange silence when it comes to Hillary, is actually working for her campaign, going after Trump like an attacking grizzly bear. He condemns Christians who are voting for Trump, calling them the old religious right guard & says he’s thankful this new generation of pastors don’t follow their example, but instead stick to the gospel. Seriously? Let’s see:
Moore recently looked on, grinning, while Andy Stanley said pastors need to take the spotlight OFF the Bible! Yes, he made such a statement. But what does God’s Word say?
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness…” (2 Timothy 3:16).
From the article “Crisis At Andy Stanley’s North Point Church,” Todd Pruitt pointed out an example of some of the entertainment Stanley’s church has to attract the young crowd. There was a boy band performance of a song with the lyrics, “Baby, love the way you turn me on.”
Pruitt said, “You may remember Andy Stanley famously saying in a sermon earlier in the year that people who go to smaller churches are ‘lazy’ and don’t care about their children, because those churches cannot provide the same sorts of experiences as do big churches like North Point. When I watched this video one of my first thoughts was, “How lazy it is to go to a church like this.”
And have you seen some of what passes for Christian entertainment at Hillsong’s mega church? There’s nothing Christian about it.
“Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play” (1 Corinthians 10:7).
What about Joel Osteen, who also has a mega church filled with those “who will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they have gathered around themselves teachers to suit their own desires” (2 Timothy 4:3).
Let’s talk a bit about what Russell Moore stands for, since he sits upon his high horse and looks down on the Christian Trump voters.
Russell Moore wants to have open borders and let all the Muslims come in that want to. Like Rick Warren and his ilk, he promotes worshiping with Muslims, saying they’re just like us and worship the same God. No they’re not and no they don’t! I will never stop exposing this lie, so I will reiterate for the umpteenth time about Islam and its agenda.
Islam and the Qur’an, both an invention of Mohammad in the 7th century A.D.—a man who advocated child marriage and consummation of the marriage once the child had her first menstrual period (his bride was six years old)—commands that Muslims infiltrate other countries, populate and dominate to take over the world, but not assimilate to the culture of their host country in the meantime. Their Allah, says you must die while killing for him as the only guarantee of salvation. Our God came in the flesh to die for us so that we may be saved. Their version of Jesus (Isa) is a Muslim and is not the Son of God, didn’t die on the cross, and will come back and kill Christians and Jews who won’t bow to Islam, then live for 40 years on earth before dying and being buried next to Mohammad. It is blasphemy to say that their god is our God.
Moore should know that God forbids worshiping with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14). Our Father in Heaven tells us to come out from among them (2 Corinthians 6:17). Moore even supported a lawsuit to build yet another mosque in New Jersey, claiming it’s a Baptist’s duty to support “soul freedom” for everybody? Soul freedom? What kind of new age talk is that? Besides, these mosques are known to support terrorism, which the liberal left globalist leaders refuse to acknowledge. They do everything they can to avoid saying the word “terrorism,” and refuse to associate it with Islam. A cursory reading of the Qur’an shows that the terrorists are following the Qur’an. Muslims even tried to build a mosque near ground zero, and Barack Hussein Obama defended their right to do so. Thankfully, this blatant in-your-face endeavor was defeated.
Though Russell Moore claims to be pro-life, when he was asked to comment on a Southern Baptist church’s plans to build an abortion clinic, he was completely silent. When Jim Fletcher, who writes a weekly column for the Rapture Ready website titled “Israel Watch,” asked for Moore to comment on what people are saying are Moore’s less-than-stellar feelings for Israel, he got his assistant to say he had no comment.
Many of these “new way of thinking” pastors do not support Israel at all, but are pro-“Palestinian.” And all they seem to really care about is filling those seats and raking in the money–forget about preaching the gospel. They are on the left, and apparently so is Russell Moore.
“A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right, but a fool’s heart to the left” (Ecclesiastes 10:2).
Lest one think I’m making these things up about Russell Moore, they should visit the website Pulpit and Pen. They can type Russell Moore in the search bar, and come up with a number of articles.
We have been given two choices for president. Both are flawed. But God can and does use all kinds of people to fulfill His purpose. Examples of this can be found all through the Bible. We must vote for the one who most closely supports the things that God would have them support. One of the candidates actually does support Godly principles and one fights against them. So, for me the choice is obvious.
“God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God” (1 Corinthians 1:27-29).
Did these accusers consider that just maybe these stupid remarks from years ago that came back to haunt Trump may well have been a humbling experience for him? He did apologize and also prayed for forgiveness before the debate. Hillary has apologized for nothing. And she only made excuses for calling Trump supporters deplorables. Perhaps God is working on a change in Donald Trump? Regardless, God can use him for His purposes.
There are some political hypocrites coming out against Trump. For example, Hillary Clinton trashes Trump for the locker room remarks he made eleven years ago when she’s tried to destroy women whom her husband, Bill, has done more than talk about. He actually sexually molested them.
Vice president Joe Biden said Trump’s remarks years ago were a “sexual assault.” Really? Have you seen all the online photos of Biden caught ON CAMERA trying to snuggle up to even young girls’ necks. It’s disgusting.
Then there’s former two-term governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who says he can’t vote for Trump after hearing about those remarks. Oh my goodness! We’ve been hearing for years about Arnold fondling women who did not give him permission to do so. And his wife and him split up when she found out he had a teenage son by the maid. I also read some very nasty remarks he made about women too, including saying the P word. These remarks were so lewd, I will not repeat them here.
And how about Michelle Obama saying she was “shaken to her core” by Trump’s remarks he made man- to-man to Billy Bush all those years back, and that she’s “never heard men talk this way.” Well, how about the fact that she and her husband invite rappers to perform at the White House that sing filthy lyrics. Two years ago Michelle took her young daughters to a Jay Z and Beyonce concert. Look online to see the gyrating and poses, not to mention lyrics straight out of the gutter from those two.
Obama slammed Trump for his remarks back then, yet he himself back in 1995 in a speech at Cambridge while reading from his book “Dreams of My Father,” read a disgusting line using the P word. What was the point in that? He had a whole book to quote from. Surely he didn’t have to go there. Also, there is a video out there of Obama and a plane full of female reporters. They must have been from the liberal mainstream media from the sounds of their approval. It’s something once seen you can’t unsee. Obviously he lacked discernment or just didn’t care that everyone has a cell phone with a camera these days that records. To be honest, I wouldn’t bring this kind of raunchy stuff up about our leaders if they weren’t trying to point out the splinter in Trump’s eye while ignoring the plank in their own.
I was caught off guard recently by some Christians who came out pretty forcefully against those of us Christians who are voting in this election, accusing us of falling away from the faith. I spoke with some of my sisters in Christ about this. One of them is Alice Johnson Childs. Here is what she had to say:
“We have a Hollywood-ized and romanticized notion of history. We tend to see things through rose colored glasses. Great men such as Winston Churchill and General George Patton may have been crude, rude, impolite, bombastic and sadly, most probably lost. But God used both of them to save and preserve America and Europe.
It’s better to have a morally upright person (even if he is lost) than to have a leader who is totally without any moral character or restraints whatsoever. A lost person can be led to the Lord; but not one who has been given over to a reprobate mind. Hillary openly and admittedly worships the occult. She, by her own and Bill’s admission, has been channeling the “spirit” of whom she believes is Eleanor Roosevelt for decades.
An amoral person is much worse than an immoral one. An immoral person at least is capable of recognizing and admitting that what he is doing is wrong. In doing so, there is at least the HOPE of redemption. An amoral person HAS no moral compassion or compass whatsoever and their lack of such doesn’t phase them in the least.
Amoral people are true sociopaths who have lost any ability to feel or empathize with others because their consciences have been seared and they have been “given over” by God. For those whom God has given over, they are as destined for Hell as if they were already there. They are the truly frightening ones.”
Geri Ungurean, another sister in Christ, pointed me to Dr. James Dobson’s article “A Christian Pastor’s Analysis of the U.S. Election Drama.” He mentioned leaders like Winston Churchill and General George Patton, who were less than godly men, whom God used mightily. Here is an excerpt of some other things he said:
“When I first heard that Trump (DT) was entering the race last year, I told my wife that perhaps it was a good thing for the party and America. I knew that he was not a “saint,” but I thought that he would be like a bull in a china shop. He is a disrupter and I believe America could use a fresh thinker, especially in the political arena. I didn’t think he would get the nomination, but that he would shake up politics as usual. I was correct on the shaking up!….
I think it would be awesome to have a righteous leader, one that understood the intricacies of the economy, health care, defense, immigration, with great sensitivity to religious institutions, a heart for the poor, a vision for the future. If that leader was a praying person, formidable in the word of God and loved the local church, I would rejoice! I do not think that is the choice we will have in November.
Instead….we will look for someone who is imperfect, yet will fit the times we are living in. Particularly, that ‘whomever’ we vote for, will be someone who might possibly have the opportunity to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices. That could radically shape our culture in America for the next 30 years. The America of our grandchildren could be very different….and that may not be good. We cannot stand on the sidelines. A non-vote is a passive vote for a direction we may very well regret.
So….is Donald Trump good for America? I honestly believe that he has been already. He has shaken the political system. Do his comments offend me? At times! Do I agree with all he says? Not at all! But could he be a “Cyrus” being raised up by God to preserve America? Nobody liked Gen. Patton, but he sure WAS an instrument of the United States for the right things.
This I know. I will vote for the best chance for America. I will pray for our leaders as I have already. In the end – God will continue to be my source and my hope. I do believe that God has had a hand in America’s history. I hope and pray that He will also have a saving hand in America’s future.” – Dr. James Dobson
“As it is written: ‘None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one’” (Romans 3:10-12).
If Jesus had not died for our sins, we would all be lost—every one of us. He offers us the free gift of salvation if we would accept it. Sadly, many will not.
In closing, I’d like to say that there are more Christian pastors who say we should get out and vote in this very important election than those who say we shouldn’t. And they say we should vote for the one who will not allow our country to continue on its far left path to destruction. Those who are loudly proclaiming that we’re lost, are being self righteous and are causing needless division among the brethren. There are some excellent pastors online who tell us to vote and vote for the candidate who most closely holds to godly principles. Here’s an example of them: J.D. Farag, Amir Tsarfati, John Haller, Franklin Graham, Robert Jeffress and David Jeremiah.
I plan to listen to them and get out and vote for Trump, who may not be perfect by a long shot, but who just might be like Cyrus and others who were not someone you’d think God could use, but perhaps God will use him to hold onto our national sovereignty and what religious freedoms we still have left until the Rapture, enabling us to continue to spread the gospel and be watchmen and women on the wall until the trumpet sounds, and Jesus catches us up to meet Him in the air.
After that, the global government these radical leftist democrats are leading us into will no doubt quickly form, led by the Antichrist. And the global false Harlot “interfaith” religion that Russell Moore and others are leading their flocks into will lead them to destruction if they don’t wake up. Don’t be one of the left behind. Now is the time for salvation, and Jesus is the ONLY way to salvation.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved” (Romans 10:9-10).
