The Reasons Used to Support Trump are the Same Reasons Not To

Make America Great Again?

Some of the reasons people use for voting for Trump are the same reasons not to.


It is argued that since Trump is from a very liberal New York that he has had some democratic leanings. …understatement of the year right there!

One poster writes that “I’m from Philadelphia and used to be a moderate”..

I too used to be from Philadelphia, attended city schools, and have never been a moderate nor a democrat. I had parents who were not political nor religious, but by the time I reached high school I knew then that Social Security was a con game. So location does not determine ones political leanings, nor policy positions, ideology does. Trumps ideology lines up nicely with the progressive democrats and republicans whom he has supported liberally in the past. He has stated on a number of occasions that he gets along well with Pelosi and Reid and Schumer. These are not the words of a Constitutional Conservative nor someone who values limited government. While Conservatives and TEA Party members were fighting Pelosi and Reid Trump was contributing to their campaigns. When we were attempting to remove Mitch McConnell for his feckless leadership Trump was supporting his renomination.

He’s a business man, and as such has had to get along with both sides to do business….

We Know So Much that Just Isn’t So


Ronald Reagan

“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.” Ronald Reagan

They say great minds think alike, or better put the student can only be as smart as the teacher (Matthew 10:25). Perhaps that is why Ronald Reagan shared the same thought as did Paul when he was writing to Timothy about those who did not believe what Paul was teaching. Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:7 they are “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Paul was referring to men or women who were willful, boastful, proud, arrogant, self-absorbed, money hungry, chasing after pleasures and not seeking God. These folks are constantly chasing one passion or another, looking for the next big thing, seeking fame and fortune, never acknowledging God, in fact, attacking what is good if it interferes with their personal pursuits. They are always learning but never able to grasp what is real and true. They believe that what they believe is truth, but who can blame them since they were taught by those who believed they too possessed great knowledge and charged handsomely for others to get that knowledge.

Unfortunately, all that knowledge left them bereft of truth but now they have been awarded a certificate of accomplishment validating their intellect, although like Reagan said, they know so many things that just aren’t so.

How is this possible? Can we avoid being led astray by our intellects? Is there a point where we become too smart for our own good? Continue reading “We Know So Much that Just Isn’t So”

America Needs A Vote for God This Election


While making his 50 state Decision America Tour Franklin Graham spoke about the need for God back in the American political process. He found fault with both political parties and called upon Christians to pray for their nation and to repent of their and the nation’s sins.

I agree with Mr. Graham that America has tossed God out with their progressive humanist secularism, but I can not lay the fault at the feet of the politicians the voting public chose. The focus of my concern is with the dereliction of duty of the Christian church, and the Christian home.

Persecuted Christians left their homelands and traveled across a dangerous sea to find a place where they could worship God freely and without government persecution. The pilgrims set up a colony in Massachusetts that had a lasting effect on the new nation being born. In fact, the Mayflower Compact was instrumental in the Constitution.

These brave men and women were not bashful about their devotion and service to God. They made sure that honor was given to God in their community. Parents taught their children the scriptures and made sure that they understood the importance of worshipping God in their lives and in their community.

Broken Fences


broken-fence

Do not move an ancient boundary marker
that your ancestors set in place.
Prov 22:28 (GW)
{Like} a city broken into {and} left without a wall,
{so} is a person who lacks self-control.
Prov 25:28 (GW)

What is dishonorably got, is dishonorably squandered. Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) Source: Philippicoe (II, 27)

Today’s youth are surrounded by a vast wasteland of open spaces with no fences or boundaries. Our society’s efforts to remove all barriers to one’s “self awareness” and “self expression” has rendered our children lost in a maze of choices. Each choice is held as equal to the other, none holding any merit as a better choice because having the right to choose is more important than choosing right.

We would never send a toddler out in the deep forest without a guide yet we are leaving our young people to wander around in this vast wasteland of choices with no boundaries.

The current influx of illegal immigration has awaken me from the slumber of live and let live to a more thoughtful and purposeful train of reasoning.

If anyone can do whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it, wherever they desire to do it, then we, as a society, has lost our moorings, and like a ship without a rudder we are adrift on life’s sea.

One must have a anchor point, a boundary, a place where there is no trespassing allowed. Just as with the first humans who graced this planet we too have been overtaken in our lawlessness from an unbridled greed and lust for more.

When there is no one to say no then we never learn the value of restraint. We never learn to appreciate that which does not belong to us. We never learn to appreciate the need to ask before taking or to respect the limits set by others. Continue reading “Broken Fences”

Should Evangelical Christians Vote for Trump?


A study guide for those who are heading to the polls this election cycle. The bible really does have a lot to say about exercising your faith in all areas of life, that includes your civic duties to society. Not voting or voting contrary to biblical principles has ripple effects throughout the entirety of society, and therefore your exercising your civic duty should be taken very seriously and approached prayerfully.

 

Evangelical Christians come in a variety of categories on the subject of politics. These different categories will help explain why some Christians who love Jesus and believe the Bible can vote for a man like Donald Trump who is opposed to what the Bible says on so many biblical issues.
