RED LETTER HYPOCRISY

30

Reading a post from the Red Letter Christians today and you would assume the name Red Letter would mean Jesus’ words alone, but you would be quite wrong if you did.

The article was on a protester that protested the Trump Chicago rally because in their mind Trump is a racist. Why, because Trump in the past has called people names and wants to build a boarder.

Now mind you I’m not a Trump supporter, I have a different candidate that I am supporting but this is not the point.

Tony Campolo and his Red Letters don’t see the hypocrisy in all this as a matter of fact they publish the hypocrisy.

What is the hypocrisy, it is that one can protest a candidate because they don’t like them. Let’s call him a racist because he shoots his mouth off now and again but nothing about why Biblically one needs to disrupt presidential rally.

Never mind the candidate supports abortion, has no clue of what it means to be a true Christian, has no intentions and will not repent of any violations of God moral code even though he believes to be a Christian and this from a group that insist they follow the words of Jesus.

The second hypocrisy is the protester makes it plain that Trump is the target based on he called people names making him a racist. Let’s forget that two candidates Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton have promised abortion on demand be the main stay law of the land if elected. There will be no protection for the unborn with a democratic candidate with both candidates in clear violation of the 6th and 8th commandments but I guess red letters don’t agree those are worth protesting.

Amazing how progressive Christians won’t see truth because it clouds their agenda. True sin in the mind of a liberal Christian is negative emotions; it is symbolism over substance something well defined in the Red Letter Christian.

CONSERVATIVE CONTRAST

24

There is a contrast that separates conservatives and conservative Christians in general and the news of this week shows this contrast well.

Make no mistake conservative and conservative Christians are not at odds with each other, most of the time they are very tightly joined but when theology is involved Christians will start to circle the wagons of their faith more so than the average conservative.

This week in the news shows us this contrast with the Christian faith in The God of the Bible and the defense of Donald Trump. Christians are dealing with so called liberal Christians that assert that the God of Islam is the same God of the Bible while conservatives are dealing with the defense of free speech of Donald Trump from calling Hilary a liar to speeches by Trump causing peaceful Muslims to become radicalized for saying maybe some Mosques need to be shut down.

Both issues are slightly related to each other but still both issues have complete non related outcomes. For the conservative it’s like a fresh drink of water to have a candidate say what everyone is thinking. We know Hilary and the DNC is in a constant lie and most Americans are in fear of Muslims and what kind of violence can ensue.

For the Christian conservative that follows Jesus the idea that Allah and “Elohim or I Am” being the same god is heresy at best it is defiantly is not a heterodox in any stretch of the imagination no matter how much liberal Christians want this to be true. Yes while Christianity, Islam and Judaism fall under the idea of theism Christians are by no means worshiping the same god of Islam.

While conservatives deal with free speech and the undermining of the liberal agenda that marks the main stream media and the DNC the conservative Christians deal with both issues since truly a conservative Christian must make all issues be a part of the Christian view and that includes dealing with candidates that people inside the conservative cause don’t necessarily agree with or even have any reason to side with. The goal would be to work inside the Christian world view in the hopes it works with the moral law of God and the American view of freedom and the constitution that our founding fathers and framers developed for us.

For the most part Christians in general whether they are conservative or liberal battle the political and religious end of their ideology. Liberals will tend to leave the politics in favor of liberal theology while conservative Christians normally will not.

Conservative Christians understand the fabric of politics that is woven into religion. While conservative Christians normally will not allow politics to make or break their theology, politics does impact the society we live in and can effect how that theology is spoken, delivered and received making politics important in not only the Christian world view but the world view in general.

What conservative have to understand, whether they are non believers of God or bordering on atheism, whether they are Jewish or apart of polytheism is that Christianity is the cornerstone of the American foundation of this county. People like Dennis Prager know and understand this and they know and understand how much the belief in God and Christianity in general has shaped this country.

One of the main reason why liberals want to fundamentally change America is because people are not  bowing down to progressiveness that does not believe in secular relativism. Not only is America too white, too capitalist it is also too Christian and that cannot be a part of a liberal America.

Conservatives have known they all are an enemy of the liberal, harsh words enemy but sadly it’s true. Liberals have no need for conservative values, yes some may love God but for the most part they dislike the idea that requires repentance and a declaration to follow Jesus in the same breath. Liberal Christians want that red letter love and nothing to do with obedience to God because that takes away the idea of free will and autonomy.  Liberal Christians that believe in repentance, following Jesus and being obedient to God always throw in the love first for everyone that questions disobedience and demands repentance not fully understanding that with love comes obedience but before all that we need to truly repent.

While conservatives in general do not need to completely know and understand the theology of Christianity  or each individuals philosophy they do need to know and understand how Christianity and the belief in the God of the Bible have shaped this country. Knowing how gives understanding how conservatism works in a joint effort of multi beliefs.

Christian conservatives have to balance these multi beliefs and they have to learn it is not a deal breaker to work with beliefs that are not Christian beliefs but still function with in Gods moral law. Not everyone will follow the conservative Christian idea that is for sure but we can still live and work in the same world, we can still share in ideas that will grow this country for the better.

Taking the conservative ideas that are not Christian in general and transforming and changing these multi views into a Christian view might still could be done. We  just have to view core beliefs as important to all conservatives hard to do sometimes but important for stability. Building on a good conservative idea that is not Christian can be done and for the believer may even be an idea that can be transformed into the Christians world view.

As we go into an election year understand it will be a fight but I believe it is key for conservatives to stay strong, stay logical and stay united. Liberalism and moderates riding the fence lack logic and unity something the conservative idea should do its best to capitalize on. The goal is simple, bring back America before we loose it.

THE DEBATE

Tonight another GOP debate, I do have a dog in this fight because frankly the DNC is full of has-been old white guys or socialist on the verge of being a communists so I’m not thrilled with ever voting demo-liberal I’d rather vote for a paper towel over Bernie Sanders or Clinton.
What I read on the Emags and Twitter is tonight’s debate is over substance this will separate the adults from the children. (Can’t say men from boys since Carly is running).


What does substance mean, and what does it mean from a liberal network like CNBC. No more questions like “would you really let a woman die and not let her have an abortion” Megan Kelly should have been fired for that moronic question to Scott Walker.
I don’t have faith in CNBC, they do good when they show formula 1 Grand Prix’s for NBC Sports occasionally but besides that who watches CNBC well I guess you will be if you watch the debate.

Will Trump bounce back will Carson surge forward will Rubio scream I don’t know.
One thing I guess is this debate might thin the herd a bit, maybe Bush stumbles maybe Christie has mob ties.

One thing I do hope is that they the candidates put their energy in defeating the socialist democrats yes the democrat socialist that is what Sanders identifies himself and what he and his party wants for this country.

Forget the back stabbing guys and gal let’s focus on winning the prize regardless if you are nominated or not.

WHY TRUMP ?

7

I was reading a blog by a fellow blogger on one theory why Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls right now.
Normally I don’t trust polls I mean when was the last time you were asked to respond to questions on a poll for me it’s been years so I wonder what kind of people have the time to take polls.
The blogger actually had a decent theory one I wouldn’t necessarily refute but I felt it was short on reasons and I think there is more to why Trump is doing well.
Interesting Jeb Bush made a statement to Fox News a few weeks ago when asked the same question. He responded “ask me again in two months”. To me that was good response, Trump is high on insults and telling himself how good he looks but short on debating skills not that it is presssing in leadership but one still needs to get their point across in a full on debate with 8 other self absorbed people who all want your vote. (Special note Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal are exempt from this, you know where my vote is going)
So why is Trump doing so well, first off the GOP got its rear end handed to themselves by moderate candidates with the likes of John McCain and Mitt Romney even more reason not to trust so called experts of Karl Rove and Ann Colter who shoved these two losers down our throats.
The DNC and its establishment has kicked the GOP candidates around for the last 8 years and now finally a new non establishment candidate comes out and swings back at the government and its minions. I believe this has gotten people to perk up and open their eyes and start listening.
Yes the Donald says things that may seem inappropriate but I believe that is what people want to here. Trump says what you and I have been saying for over 8 years.

Even Ben Carson has said some so called PC incorrectness  that you and I are saying to ourselves right now so it’s no surprise to see Carson leveling up to Trumps poll numbers

8.

Trumps appeal is he hits back, he calls it as he sees it. Somebody makes fun of Trump or talks ill of him and he does the same back.
Trump gets in their faces and tells everyone he can do it better, whether he can or not does not matter right now people are tired of being pushed around by our government and they love it when somebody pushes back.

People are tired of the same old game one reason why I think Bernie Sanders is doing fairly well with liberals. Sanders is adding something new to an already socialist Democratic Party by promising more extreme socialism of free this and free that by way of class warfare, Bernie’s going to stick it to those rich Wall Street guys and take what it yours and give it to everyone or at least back to the government to spend more.

Trumps saying and doing what people want to do and what people want to hear out of a candidate regardless of the substance or lack thereof.

Whether or not Jeb Bush is right; for now the rest of the insider candidates have to be worried about what if. What if Trump or Carson keep rolling on and one of them wins this thing?

Final thoughts, although I’m not a fan of either Trump or Carson at this time I do see something good about these two men. They are standing up to the establishment and showing future GOP candidates what needs to be done.

Cowering to RINO’s like Rove, Romney and misspoken commentators of Colter and the moderates at Fox News won’t get you support of every GOP voter.

What voters want is a man or a woman that can simply say yes or no. Simply put in Matthew 5:37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one

MONDAY THOUGHTS 1

monday1

Greetings this Monday; some of us decompressing over the weekend depending on what we did. I guess the big news of the week going through the weekend has been the visit of Pope Francis. He has gone home now but as Monday arises I can see a division of both Catholics and Protestants, liberals and conservatives over Sir Francis’s visit to my country.

I can only offer my opinion as to why this is, why one man can divide when such a visit should be unity. First to my Catholic friends there is no disrespect to the Catholic doctrine on my part I’m only giving my assessment of Francis’s visit. I know Catholics will say they are not the cause of such division and I also know Pope Francis has an agenda and I’m sure has no plans to change that agenda.

The reason why there is and maybe continue to be a division is simply Pope Francis is a socialist and he brought his Marxist ideas with him. If you don’t think Sir Francis is a socialist you need to lift your head out of the sand.

I personally felt if you get a chance to speak in front of Congressmen and Senators and you are a professed man of God you need to preach the Gospel not preach your political agenda. Open the speech up with prayer for one; condemn abortion and the funding of groups that would sell murdered body parts it’s not enough to just say all life is precious when Planned Parenthood is buying  Lamborghini’s off the organs of our unborn children.

A statement was made that Pope Francis’s visit to America was a slap in conservative’s faces and I have to agree with that, it’s also a big letdown of one person not preaching the Gospel.

I know Catholics by in large love this man so do liberals and that alone sets off red flags in my direction. What is most disheartening to me was a few comments I made on twitter this week and the comments it received by what I considered as good conservative men of God that happened to be Catholic. It broke my heart to hear such comments I will not go into details and who left the comments but if you know what the word idolatry means there is a big concern here for me and for Christians that praise one man might need to do a personal heart to God’s heart check on themselves.

The other big news item of course is Donald Trump, a few of my aunts and uncles have been out my way for a visit this week asked me what I thought of Mr. Trump and my statement was “I wish he would leave and let people like Cruz and Jindal takeover”

If you think Trump is the GOP saving grace you could be right but I don’t think he is. Like Jeb Bush said on Fox News (no I’m not a Bush fan) check back with me in two months and see where we are, Responding to Trumps popularity.

I agree with Jeb I really don’t think Trump can debate well. I mean watch him in a debate, he calls people names, says I can do better than you, almost childlike responses.

Is Trump better than any democrat well yeah that’s a no brainer. It’s also a testament to a candidate that gets into it with Trump like what Rubio has been doing, shows me Rubio needs to drop out he is way too inexperienced to be running a campaign as is Trump. As a Christian Trump is all over the place, I like how he has pandered to the Christian GOP group but I’m not sold on if he really knows who Jesus is.

Boehner resigns yippy it about time don’t let actually let the door hit you as you leave you have been an embarrassment to the GOP and have done nothing to further the advancement of America. When fools like Harry Reid say it’s a loss for Boehner to leave that is when you know it’s time for fools like Boehner to leave, McConnell needs to follow right behind him.

These are my thoughts this Monday feel free to add your own and enjoy the week.
