Reply November 6, 2018 Varnel Watson oh dear Terry Wiles Nelson Banuchi seems like FL, VA, OH all blue Jan Dixon Sykes Dave Larson Reply November 6, 2018 Dave Larson Go Blue! Republican politicians need to be sent to their rooms without their supper for at least two years – and THINK about how they let The Party of Lincoln become The Party of an Infantile Monster. Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson Dave Larson the people have spoken – they want Trump Some churches have regarded voting as an act of worship So be it@ Reply November 7, 2018 Dave Larson The People also spoke in 1930s Germany, Rev. They wanted Adolph. And the churches gladly joined in. How’d that work out for ’em? Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson True, but what do we do now? How does the church benefit? Reply November 7, 2018 Dave Larson U spiritual blasphemy and betrayal of our faith by sugar-coating it with “Some…regarded voting as an act of worship”? Reply November 7, 2018 Dave Larson What now? We start by calling BETRAYAL what it is…and Resisting – not just Trump, but Trumpism in or churches. Will YOU do this? Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson hence the danger of kingdom-now theology Angel Ruiz Reply November 7, 2018 Dave Larson (My cybercafe is closing down now. Bye for now. Reply November 7, 2018 George Parker Reading this stuff, I now don’t understand why churches don’t understand each other. Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson agreed, and that is why our perspective always live what we speak and speak what we live, representing and giving out the message of Him who can “rescue [others] from the domain of darkness” – which even America is part of – “and transfer us to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Col 1:13). We are in America but not of America. Terry Wiles the stay-trib church of Link Hudson cant survive American elections but will survive the Tribulation Tell me another one It is my desire to follow the Word of God as closely as I can when deciding how I should cast my ballot. I will not vote according to any political party but to God’s Truth, knowing that whoever gets elected will have the power to make policy that agrees with God’s Word or disregards it. The Biblical Perspective on the Issues: I will vote for the most pro-life candidate possible, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood. (Proverbs 6:17) I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who do not. (Genesis 12:3) I will vote for the most pro debt-reduction candidate, because the borrower is the servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7) I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because God says that if the man will not work, let him not eat. (2 Thessalonians 3:10) I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate because God is for marriage between a man and a woman, as defined in Genesis 2:24. I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government’s purpose is to reward good and punish evil. (Romans 13) I will vote for the candidate who stands up for Christian rights and will not discriminate against Christians, so that we may live a peaceful life in godliness and honesty. (1 Timothy 2:2) From Dominic Russo Reply November 7, 2018 Jan Dixon Sykes Trump: pro life, check. Pro Israel, super check. Pro debt reduction, check. Pro work, super check. Pro marriage, thrice check. Pro law & order, super check. Pro Christian rights, super check. Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson best thing since sliced bread Reply November 7, 2018 Nelson Banuchi All that a Christian does, thinks, and feels should be an act of worship (Romans 12:1)… including voting. Reply November 7, 2018 Varnel Watson I disagree Nelson because they start bowing Reply November 7, 2018 Nelson Banuchi Well, perhaps we could do away with eating because one can become a glutton. The point is, all our acts ought to be in the spirit of worship towards God; if we transform such act to the worship of idols, then that’s on us. Reply November 8, 2018 Varnel Watson someone saying you did not worship God because you did not vote for Trump may change your mind at times Reply November 8, 2018 Nelson Banuchi Troy Day that’s a misunderstanding of what I’m saying and the demands of the Christian life and worship. Bible reads, unless I’m mistaken, whatever you do, not naming specifics, do all for the glory of God; and to do all for God’s glory is worship. Reply November 8, 2018 Varnel Watson not you – there are actual articles and sermons out there saying you did not vote as act of worship to GOD if you did not vote for Trump Reply November 8, 2018 Nelson Banuchi Troy Day Well, pastors preaching stupid sermons is not my problem. Reply November 8, 2018 Varnel Watson Stupid YES, but flipping like Dr. Brown for financial gain is NO small thing for multitude of followers Reply November 8, 2018 Nelson Banuchi Followers will be followers… Reply November 8, 2018 Varnel Watson what about church followers who follow spiritual leaders who flip on political issues ? Reply November 8, 2018 Nelson Banuchi Troy Day That’s up to them; they have the right to follow whom they choose, wisely, blindly , or otherwise… Reply November 8, 2018 Varnel Watson well no and yes – the BIBLE says not to worship false gods Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
