Position Clarity!

Position Clarity!

It is not my desire to mislead or deceive anyone about what I believe.

I am a “True Born-Again Believer” in The Word of God–not man’s religions or positions–especially when they oppose God’s intent for mankind and my relationship with Him cannot be shaken by anything mere mortals do or say. 

Being “pro-choice” is not embracing or embellishing killing unborn babies. It is an acknowledgement–that God gives–choice. We make choices and deal with the consequences of our choices–whatever they are. But I will not impose my beliefs or thoughts upon anyone who wants to “choose” differently.

I know because of observations and excellent reading comprehension skills that President Obama is not responsible for the debt he inherited and I resent the allegations that he is. A war–ignited by a Republican president–is responsible for the debt. If we’re going to execute/implement God’s Word in our daily lives; we must be willing to practice all Of His Word–not just the portions that appeal to us. The greatest commandment–given by Jesus is that we learn to love–unconditionally. That does not mean we promote sin, but love the sinner–so they’ll see Jesus in us–and want to change the direction of their lives.

The party of obstruction–the do-nothing party that has been angry for over eight years–simply because of the color of the President’s skin, needs to get over their bias and look in the mirror–and see truth for themselves. The Republican party has done nothing but get in the way–especially when they won’t even allow a vote to be taken–probably fearful of the outcome of the outcome.

And if love–“perfect love casts out fear,” why are they using fearmongering tactics to convince and persuade anyone to do anything?

The Evangelical Leaders who support bigotry, hatred, fearmongering and narcissism do not speak for me and I would hope, they don’t speak for anyone who has a relationship with Christ. God speaks to me through Holy Spirit, guides me in His Word to confirm what He says, and gives me the courage to stand on what He has said to me. No party politics will ever dictate my decisions about anything since none of the platforms will provide a heaven or hell for me.

Hmm! Is that clear enough?

Still praying for America–that God’s Wisdom will guide every voter, not party affiliations or hopes in a mere mortal.

What’s Next?

What’s Next?

Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and to insight, “You are my relative.” They will keep you from the adulterous woman, from the wayward woman with her seductive words. With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk.All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life. Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths. Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death. Proverbs 7:4,5; 21-27 NIV

No matter how many times it said, many refuse to listen to the wisdom that resides in the pages of the book of Proverbs.

Wisdom–usually referred to with a female pronoun throughout The Word–is compared to “an adulterous woman” (not so wise) in this passage,  one who has no integrity, scruples or values. To keep this all in context, one must read the entire seventh chapter. However, if we look beyond the pronoun reference and see the character traits of the adulterer, we see how all of this connects and is applicable to daily lives–especially in the political arena.

Let me see if I could put this into perspective–based on the facts as they are revealed. The male pronoun reference embellishes the character traits of a person who is gullible and easily manipulated. The warning against the adulterous woman is to make sure all understand that manipulators use enticing words, playing to a person’s weaknesses and desires and will offer whatever they want–in order to get what they want. Of course, if a person is gullible and easily manipulated–because of a lack of knowledge–they will believe and follow the manipulator–and end up traveling the path of destruction–by their own choices.

We have two choices–one not much better than the other–but choices nonetheless. We must choose between a blustery, dictatorial, narcissistic, bigoted, hate and fearmonger who doesn’t have a clue about how much of anything works outside his own delusions of grandeur. One who backpedals on a daily basis, and doesn’t feel he has to play the game by the rules and when people disagree with him–watch out for vitriol–as he attempts to bully by intimidation.

And the other choice–someone who has been proven to not always tell the complete truth–(though all politicians lie) and for some–as they see it–refuses to take responsibility for her actions. Though she has been cleared of wrongdoing in two major investigations–Benghazi and the email probe–opponents refuse to let her “carelessness” go. Okay, so she was careless–or stupid–but unfortunately, stupidity is not a crime or more people would be locked up and then there wouldn’t be anyone eligible to run for any public office–especially in this election cycle.

What I don’t understand is why–anyone would choose a man who has openly stated that his daughter is so beautiful that if he wasn’t married, he’d date her. That statement sent warning signals to me–especially in light of his inflated ego and view of self. Does he really think it was appropriate to admit he’d like to sleep with his daughter? Why would anyone want a man in the position of President of the United States–who praises the likes of those who hate and kill–indiscriminately? And then there are other pending lawsuits that, if ever revealed, will expose the true nature and character of a child molester.But then I guess the answer is in his enticing words (not necessarily truth)intended to ignite and promote hatred of others while making himself appear more capable and knowledge than he is.  He is his best publicist for not many others have said anything about his greatness or his wealth.

I’m still praying for all Americans who will be voting this fall. And for those who think I’ve gone overboard with what I have to say about the election and applicability of God’s Word, you’re entitled to think whatever you like. I’ve learned to respect people who disagree with me without trying to tear them down for doing so. If that same courtesy is not extended to me–God’s got my back. I’m especially praying for those Evangelical leaders who are deliberately leading people down a garden path–not of God–but out of fear, proving they do not trust God. Fearmongering works best when a candidate has nothing of substance to say about the real issues–that affect all Americans. Where love resides, there’s room in the heart for fear!

Until we realize we all–black, white, yellow, brown, red–Believers of Christ and non-believers, gay, straight, male or female–belong to the human race and we should all be treated with love and compassion as Jesus would do. So what happens next? That depends on how open hearts are to hearing Holy Spirit speak–even when it means putting aside political ideologies that ignite hatred and bigotry. God knows best and in the end–it will all be as He planned it.
