When Integrity Is Lacking!

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us. For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. Titus 2:7,8, 11-13 NLT

POLITIC ALERT!

At what point–in this election cycle–are people going to admit that Donald Trump would not make a good presentative of who Americans are?

Though I have tried to refrain from giving him attention, his actions–cannot be ignored. This is not about hatred or bigotry or incompetence–it is about the fact that this man has no apparent moral compass and even with his lame attempt to apologize, sincerity is seriously lacking and the fact that he attempts to deflect and dodge–turning the blame onto Bill Clinton.

Bill Clinton acted foolishly and immorally before he was voted as President and afterwards and he was punished for his actions. And no matter what Hillary did–as the woman wronged in the situation–the women who chose to involve themselves with her husband cannot justify their actions and in no way should anyone attempt to hold Hillary accountable for what her husband–who is not seeking the presidency–did. In fact, I don’t know too many women who wouldn’t have done the same thing Hillary did–letting those women know, she wasn’t a doormat. The repeated lies that Bill abused women should stop and I pray that God will deal with those who originated the lie. Those women knew he was married and many of them plotted to get next to him in order to undermine his position.

I am so tired of the deflection and dodge game continually presented by the Republican party surrogates that I am beginning to doubt their relationship with God.

How can anyone–purporting to be a true Believer–continue to justify and gloss over Trump’s behavior by blaming others?

Trump has repeatedly shown the world that his inflated ego will not allow him to seriously admit wrongdoing and truly be contrite with his abject apologies. His combative attitude is not lost to those who are watching what he does with clear vision–our minds are not blinded by party loyalty, but we see truth–in all of its glaring glory–and the man is not fit to be president of the United States.

Where there is no integrity–evil lurks–ready to spread its poisonous venom onto all who get in the path. And anyone who continues to justify the evil is just as evil as the evil itself.

Do I believe he is irredeemable? I don’t know; only God knows. Do I believe–as some evangelicals are promoting–that God chose Trump? NO! For anyone to believe that lie–especially someone claiming to be a Christian–either doesn’t truly know God through His Word and in Relationship with Him or they think God is a moron. Heaven help us all!

Until integrity and truth reign in the hearts of man and woman–we will continue to see this debacle–total exposure–for all the world to see and then wonder–“What’s wrong with those Americans?”

This American understands the problem and I have more questions than answers, but I will not sit idly by and say nothing about the danger that lurks if America puts this man in the White House. He claims, traveling around the country has changed him, but we see no evidence of that when he continues to mock the disabled, continues to belittle minorities and women, and has no problem backpedaling faster than a spinning top spins. Someone truly needs to explain to him, “the art of sincerity” and “how to avoid deflection and dodge ball” when running for the highest office in the land.

If ever we needed the wisdom of God to pour out on the planet, that time is now.

Lord, show us who You are in a very public way, redeeming the time for those of us who Love You and will not bring shame upon ourselves or You.

  1. Mary, I am sorry…but you are blinded to the truth about this upcoming election… You say Trump is a liar…and you question all the evangelical people who back him…

    They are backing the Republican party Mary…because they are pro-life, and because they want to see a small government again who puts the Constitution (based on godly principles) before their own political agenda !!

    Is Trump a Christian ?? He doesn’t act like one… But neither does Hillary with her known lies, and all the dirty money she has made for her husbands and her speeches to foreign countries, who support the Muslim beliefs about gays and keeping women under their thumbs… This money was given in hope of favors, because of her position as Secretary of State… Heaven help us if she becomes President with Bill, to really bring this country to total socialism…

    Mary, Hillary has been caught in several lies to congress…the FBI…and even to the parents of the 4 people killed in Benghazi, when she told them face to face about the knowingly false information that the video was to blame for their death…

    There were e-mails found between Hillary and her daughter, where Hillary told her that night that it was a terrorist attack by radicals (not about a video) !!

    I understand Hillary wants to repeal the legislature so that tax dollars (even from organizations that object to abortion), can be used to pay for abortions…

    Yes, women have the right to an abortion…and they will have to face God for that decision… But we as Christians should not vote for a political party that SUPPORTS abortions !!

    You have no likes on this post because you are wrong !! I don’t know of but a few true Christians who support Hillary… Are all of the dozens of my Christian friends wrong, and you are right ??

    You say the Holy Spirit has told U to support Hillary… I am sorry Mary… But this cannot be anything but an evil spirit that is urging your support of the Democratic party…

    I tell you this in love and concern for your beliefs…

    Blessings in Christ, bruce

    • Bruce,
      I don’t write “my blog” to get “likes” and by now I would have thought you had figured that out. I write to express my thoughts and truth as I see it. If you choose to put party before country, that’s your business. I choose to live–representing who I serve–and not ashamed of it.

      No one knows with any certainty what will happen with Supreme Court appointments and we cannot predict anything other than saying, God’s plans will be fulfilled. I just happen to believe that Trump was not God’s plan and I’m not alone in seeing that.

      I have not been blinded by the lies perpetuated by news media who will do anything to diminish Hillary as a viable, qualified candidate.

      There is no evil lurking in me or over me, just guidance by Holy Spirit in me. You don’t have to believe it; I know it.

      And let me share one other thing with you. Your constant disapproval of what I write indicates a superiority complex–thinking you know better what’s for me than I do. Is that because I’m a woman and you think I need a man to guide my thoughts? I have a husband who knows The Lord and we both live for Him. And quite frankly, my husband is the only man I care about and what he thinks. So your patronizing attitude is not welcomed and if you truly love God, you’ll spend more time listening to Him than Fox News or any other bigoted media.

      When we get to heaven and stand before The Lord for judgement, I’m confident l’ll hear, “Well done, daughter!” So what you or anyone thinks, matters not since the only ONE who has a heaven for me, is God.

      I’m praying that truth will find its way into your heart and all those who promote fearmongering, hatemongering, bigotry, and the abuse of women.

      Love you still, Mary.

      • For all who are interested:

        I am not afraid of any who disagree with me and encourage an intelligent exchanges of views based on facts, not opinions from bigoted mediums like Fox News, Breitbart or others who only present one-sided lies and brainwash their constituents who are gullible enough to believe them. The Bible–God’s Word–is my standard and benchmark and even when it appears that my thinking is off track, I would suggest confirmation or refutation be made through Holy Spirit–not any media controlled by those with biases–one way or the other. I consult Holy Spirit on a continuous basis and I know when I’m off base, He convicts me–and what I wanted to say–is never seen.

        As stated above to Bruce, I do not write this blog to get “likes” but to express my thoughts and truth as I see it–since I cannot imagine what truth looks like through the minds or eyes of others.
