Politics as Usual or Are Things Changing?

It is also very important to understand that literally, one man changed the course of this country’s direction in late 2016. He was panned by James Clapper, John Brennan and Barack Obama. They warned incoming president Donald Trump to fire the guy because they said he was trouble. Turns out, this guy had already met with Trump (unknown to Clapper and the others), and had warned him that the “deep state” wanted to take Trump down. He outlined how they were attempting to do that. He also told Trump that every phone in Trump Tower was bugged. They were listening and recording. The next day, Trump moved his transition team to a safe place in New Jersey.

Is It Okay If I Hold a “Little” Grudge?

Can you imagine the tremendous emotion Joseph felt? The text says he “could not control himself,” so he ushered everyone out except his brothers. Then he tells them who he is and weeps! His brothers were stunned. They were beside themselves with fear. What would Joseph do to them? They feared imprisonment or death. They did not understand and it took them until even after their father had died to realize that Joseph meant them no harm (Genesis 50:15-21).

So Let Me Get This Straight…

No, all of these things are actually bad because they corrupt justice. Please don’t tell me this nation, like many others, is not heading toward judgment. We have essentially turned justice on its head and deserve what we have caused or allowed. It is in vogue to blame victims, censor truth, and applaud evil. The nation that does that cannot hope to stand long.

When Christian Leaders Fail

The church does no good by allowing fallen leaders to remain in their positions of authority. They’re actions have brought disrepute on the Name of Christ. Their hypocrisy is what they then become known for and while this has nothing to do with a need to forgive, it is clear that according to Scriptures, they have lost the ability to oversee and manage people because they failed to oversee and manage their own lives.

Knowing God’s Will: Living It!

God’s clearly wants Christians to be loving, especially to one another. How often is the exact opposite of this on display to the world? God wants us to refrain from all forms of sexual immorality. God wants us to no longer lie, cheat, steal, or commit other crimes. If we are not faithful in obeying these things, how can anyone think God would be willing to live other aspects of His will in and through us? It won’t happen.

Modern Christian Mysticism Stems from Existentialism

The mystic becomes his own determiner of truth (his own god). He needs nothing outside of himself to verify his experiences. He leans heavily on his own inner feelings to determine the veracity of his experiences. If an experience seems good to him, it is good. The Bible is secondary, at best, if used at all.

Professional Pulpit Profiteers

The documentary is interesting, though not eye-opening. We are all well aware of the abuses financially, sexually, and otherwise that these “men/women of God” have been involved in and in some cases, continue as though they’ve done nothing wrong. Won’t it be nice when the Lord returns? This kind of chicanery will evaporate like fog on a hot day.
