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.
Hugs and choclate,
