The Mouthpiece

Yes. I believe in God. I believe in His son Yeshua/Jesus as my Lord and Savior. And I'm pondering what I've heard and have watched with regard to what is going on in this country.

What has me upset right now is how the Christian community is treating each other over certain candidates. Believers are being divided and acting no better than the world. This is a concern for me.
Where is their discernment? What happened to walking in the fruit of the spirit? Love. Peace. Joy. Kindness. Generosity. Patience. Faithfulness. Integrity. Self-control.

Did anyone ever consider that some of our candidates are being used as God's mouth pieces? Remember, He spoke through a donkey. (A pun would be great right here. But I refrain.)

It is clear and loud what is being said to me. Christians, Messianics, and fellow Believers, have you asked God to forgive you? Repented lately? Or is a church sermon, for you, a moment of positive thinking?

The Almighty has standards for everyone. This includes those of us who confess we beleive in Jesus.

Believing is more than just saying so. It's supposed to be a way of life. But look at us.

We divorce. We remarry. We backstab. We schedule our lives around useless TV shows. We gossip. We lie. We slander. We don't take a stand for our poor and homeless. We don't take care of our widowed or elderly. We don't help our own families. We're vain and self-seeking. We allow babies to be aborted. We allow fornication and other sexual immorality. We don't seek God on a daily basis unless it fits into our schedules. And there is more to this list that it would take up my whole blog so I won't go any further than here.

WE CHRISTIANS ARE LIVING IN A CLOSET FULL OF STUFF THAT SHOULDN'T EVEN BE THERE.

The leaders have been and will continue to be a reflection of our own hypocrisy if we don't repent.

And if you don't understand what repent means, here you go: it means to change one's mind and to totally turn your back on something.

And what's sad: THE MAJORITY OF OUR PASTORS DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO REPENT.

Donald Trump is a picture of America's Christain values. They're stuck in the past. They think we're great. They think positive thinking and going through religious motions will pull them through. They're not even sure if they need God's forgiveness.

Once again, America will get the leader she deserves. And whoever that is will be a reflection of who the majority of us are.

PLEASE NOTE: This post is not to promote or not promote any politician. This is something, I've been pondering in my heart. America needs a change and it's not necessarily a political one. We need a spiritual change of heart.

Just saying...

Hugs and choclate,
Shelly

  1. I can say from the outside looking in that our Prime Minister chose when he won the last election not to stoop to negativity, to be an adult, and to appeal to the better side of people. It's an example that many politicians would be wise to heed.

    1. I agree with that, Sir Wills. I've been keeping the boob-tube off and reading mostly headlines, nor even the full article on the campaign trail. And finding things on YouTube if it interests me.

    2. I also agree. I hope in November, our people will elect a leader as wise as Canada has chosen, William.

  2. Going through the motions won't do it. Only accepting Jesus means one is saved.
    We really need to start praying.

  4. Shelly, I've moved from church to church since I was a teenager, and I've always been disappointed. Maybe it's like the old joke about not wanting to belong to a club that would have me as a member. Maybe I expected too much, expecting the people and pastors to be better than I am. I am a Christian. I've accepted Jesus as my Savior. But I'm human. I'm flawed. I still mess up, a lot. I've wondered if I'll ever "measure up." But God has shown Collin and me his love in ways that make me see He loves us, warts and all.

    1. He loves us. No doubt. His grace and mercy are evident everyday that we wake up. I'm just amazed at how some people I know and some celeb Christians are behaving with regard to this campaign. The name-calling has been horrendous. Free speech is being attacked from all sides.

  5. You are certainly right, Shelly. Some of the things people say is positively mind blowing. There are all too many examples of not-like-Jesus behavior in the political realm. What a wonderful reminder that God may be using some of these candidates to speak through.

  6. Each day, I light my prayer candle for those in need. The action gives me the incentive to be a better person that day. May our positive thoughts outweigh the negativity of others.

  7. There is not one candidate that I identify with. This makes me sad and worried. If only we would do EVERYTHING with Jesus in mind. Not our perception of Jesus, but how he lived--in total love. Of course if we all did that, live like Jesus would live, there would be no need for his sacrifice, nor would Satan be able to reign. This is the world we live in--super self-centered, where sin looks like the right thing to do.
