The First Amendment versus the Greatest Commandment

The first amendment versus the Greatest Commandment

Let’s have a contest. The First Amendment versus the Greatest Commandment. Which is more important to Christians?  Let me rephrase that.  Which should be more important?  It’s the Greatest Commandment, isn’t it?  Or did I miss something?

Look to the Bible as our guide in the future

Look to the Bible as our guide in the future

Look to the Bible as our guide in the future. That’s a partial quote from one of our previous presidents. Any guesses as to who it was? Do you think he was Christian? Here are a couple clues. For decades after his death … … suffered a reputation as one of the nation’s worst presidents, consistently ranking in the bottom 10 in polls of historians.

Is this a bit of Hell on earth?

Is this a bit of Hell on earth?

But somehow, like the serpent convincing Adam and Eve they wouldn’t die, Trump continues to convince too many Christians that he’s good for us.  However, I can’t help but wonder, is he telling us that if we follow him, we won’t surely die?  And as I show in The Problem of Free Will, the Hebrew says “die die”.  As in die physically, and die spiritually.  Depart from this earth.  Go to Hell.

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?  DACA is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  I don’t mean conservative Christians as a group.  I mean each and every individual who considers themselves Christian, especially the conservatives.  What is your stance?  And, how do you feel about the leaders you support – both politically and within your church organization?  

If Trump is anointed by God – WHY?

If Trump is appointed by God - WHY?

According to an organization calling themselves Religion in Public, Trump is appointed by God to be President of the U.S.  Fine – anyone can say that.  Anyone can even believe it.  But my question for Evangelical Christians – WHY?  Why do you believe Trump is God’s anointed one to be President?

Who loves you? The Government or God?

Who loves you? The Government or God?

Who loves you? The government or God? Does that seem like a dumb question?  Honestly, it did to me.  As soon as I typed it and saw it on the screen.  It’s like, why do I even have to ask that question?  But I do.  It’s a question that apparently needs to be asked over and over again.

Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation

street sign - corner of religion and politics

Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation.  I wrote this about two and a half years ago.  It’s amazing how much things have changed in that short time.  It look at different forms of government, with different combinations of intertwining between government and religion. 

But now, here in the U.S., it’s getting really hard to tell which one we are anymore.  Less and less a democracy – and more and more a weird kind of theocracy / dictatorship combination.  It’s scary.  Not just for what its doing to our country, but also to our salvation.  Especially those who are pushing and supporting the strange and unBiblical alliances being set up here.

Do not be afraid. Unless I hate you?

Do not be afraid. Unless I hate you?

Do you know what “Do not be afraid” is supposed to mean to Christians?  And if you’re a “Trump” Christian, do you understand the significance of adding “unless I hate you”?  Christian or not, I’ll tell you, there’s no place in the Bible where you’ll find “unless I hate you” said in the same sentence as “do not be afraid”.  So why do some Christians insist on hating?

Satanic temple statue is one reason why separation of church and state is a good thing.

I mean, it’s not like the satanic temple is out there forcing anything.  They’re just taking advantage of things that Christians have pushed for!  What are we thinking?  Are we thinking?

Do we have eyes to see?  Do we have ears to hear?  Do we understand our own Scriptures?  Do we even read them?  Are we – Christians – so busy pushing our own agenda, rather than Jesus’ agenda, that we’re actually the ones bringing ourselves closer to the end?

Our Thoughts and Prayers Go Out … Our hearts go out

Our Thoughts and Prayers Go Out … Our hearts go out

Yes – thoughts and prayers are important.  Prayers, especially.  But having said that, sometimes that’s not enough.  For better or worse, Jesus left us with the commands to be His representatives on earth – Christians.  As such, sometimes what we need to do is truly be His representative.  To do the things He’d want us to do.
