One witness is not enough to convict anyone accused of any crime or offense they may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse someone of a crime, the two people involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the LORD before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time. The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against a fellow Israelite, then do to the false witness as that witness intended to do to the other party. You must purge the evil from among you. The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you. Deuteronomy 19:15-20 NIV
Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free. Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of one who gives gifts.The poor are shunned by all their relatives— how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will perish. Proverbs 19:1, 5-9 NIV
For all those who say–they love The Lord and obey His Word–we cannot ignore the fact that much of our constitutional laws are based upon the foundations presented in The Word.
Today’s blog is dedicated to those in Congress–those elected to serve the needs of all Americans and not just a few; those elected to make wise decisions for all Americans and not just a segment of America–not vengeful ones. It is the people–Americans who vote–who determine who the lawmakers are in great expectation that the laws will be just and equitable for all Americans. We, the American people who put you into office, also have the right to recall each every person who is not fulfilling the oath taken to serve the needs of Americans.
“I, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” (Oath of Office)
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
— U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3
Since I have never chosen to run for a public office, I cannot claim to have any knowledge or experience in the process, but as an ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I can claim and affirm knowledge of God’s and His intent for all people living in harmony and peace and do so–every time I write a blog or a book–testifying of His Goodness.
As a community activist for over 40 years, I also know that corruption runs rampant in public offices because people–mere flawed human beings–are not perfect. However, being a “mere flawed human being–is an understatement when describing the current PE–Trump’s history–lack of any public service or altruistic conduct for any length of time is appalling in light of his current rant against Representative John Lewis.
Quite frankly, his lack of judgment and decency regarding the democratic process should disqualify him from ever holding a public office and he is certainly not “the legitimate president of the United States of America” with his ties and affinity to Russia. His ties are yet to be determined by your standards, but it would appear that with his son bragging about the amount of money pouring into the Trump Organization and the Dworkin Report, you have the two witnesses that settle that matter. We know from Trump’s own lips–(though with his propensity to lie one never knows what is truth), that he admires a murdering dictator, has developed an affinity to re-model our democracy to align with fascism, and thinks that Putin will be our friend.
I’m not sure what the vetting process is or should be, but it is obvious that a psych evaluation is needed before 1/20/17 and preferably by a reputable psychologist who has no personal ties with him. The “medical letter” Trump has already presented as proof of his medical history–on the surface is a joke and so is the doctor who wrote it–as a long time friend.
I would not have thought that members of Congress–both in the House and in the Senate–would have tied themselves to such a despicable person as Trump–who by the way will never be respected by me or many others. He has not earned respect and every time he opens his mouth–he digs deeper into the hole of total ignominy (disgrace; dishonor; public contempt). With public contempt and that should include yours–he will never be in a position to govern America when he cannot “govern himself.”
Trump lacks impulse control and self-discipline; he’s a pathological liar and sensationalism entertainer who cannot separate reality from his alternate universe. His personality disorders are leading him into making a mockery of the entire process of taking the office of President of the United States. His involvement–and I’m just as sure he was involved with the rigged election perpetuated by Russian hackers as the reports proclaim–either with knowledge and we know with approval from all he said during the campaign–should be grounds for his immediate removal from the position.
In fact, since it appears from every thing that has surfaced that he won the election by unfair and unethical process laced with corruption–the 2016 Election should be nullified and a federal election scheduled as soon as possible.
I’ve dedicated this blog to you–Congress–in the hope that your conscience will be your guide and that you will uphold your oath of office to preserve and protect the rights of all Americans as prescribed by our Constitution. Trump will not keep an oath–and he has proven that by all he owes money–with a signed contract–and he has shown total disdain for all we–those who love America–hold dear.
I pray you will hear The Lord speak to your hearts and you will obey to please Him, not me.
Lord, speak to the hearts of every person in a public office and especially those who proclaim to have a relationship with You. Remind them of Your Word and the obligation they have to defend the rights of the poor and needy, to judge all matters fairly and equally, and to uphold the oath they swore in Your name. Move upon them to set all wrongs right before lives are lost and wars declared. In Jesus’ name we pray and thank You, Amen!
