    Nelson Banuchi first OFF I’ve known Dr. Eddie L. Hyatt NOT to be a political poster. We would agree that these 3 concerns / convictions are deeply Christian and at the same time very very important for the future of Christian in post-Nov-elections America. This goes hand by hand with what Micael Grenholm just posted:

    This is lunacy. “Under the Trump administration, the EPA has taken a more industry-friendly stance, weakening greenhouse gas rules around oil drilling and vehicle fuel efficiency, as well as tearing up an Obama-era plan to limit pollution from coal-fired power plants.

    And also on Forbes highlighing how charismatic pastor @Greg Boyd “was among the rare voices within traditionally conservative evangelicalism to show any distinctive courage and moral clarity” https://www.forbes.com/sites/robasghar/2018/06/19/the-collapse-of-evangelical-leadership-was-inevitable-its-resurrection-isnt/

    The writer of the above article cited three of our founding fathers to help reach his point. These are men that I respected down through the years but and it is a big but when you really study their background. Washington sent his troops into Indian Villages with orders to kill every one in the O. T. fashion, men, women and children. Then he would claim the land that they were on as his own so that by the time he became president he ” owned” 4,000 acres. Franklin was known, while he was in France as a womanizer. Jefferson took a razor and cut out all the miracles in the new testament. The writer of the post was vague in his three points but they are written in evangelical code so that we know what he means.

    Jim Price 2 of them were known masons on the other hand but the author is spot on the Republic and real American republicanism not this new breed of new-reps that alike Trump who is NOT a real republican but a choice of GOP can swing either way. I’ve warned Jan Dixon and others how this neo-republicanism borders Marxism – the author asks the question right on Nelson Banuchi Christians Can Disagree on Trump and Still Be Family? – I see a major split on that brother https://stream.org/christians-can-disagree-trump-still-family/

    Nelson Banuchi Jim Price for this reason Micael Grenholm has written in PCPJ the following:

    Is it honorable or Christian to win votes on the backs of marginalized people? We could do better than this if we got creative and put our heads together. But we are too caught up in partisian politics hijacking issues that affect real human beings to either get or maintain power. I know the immigration system well and politicos are using something that strikes passion to get what they want, they are using fear to manipulate us. Don’t fall for it.

    CONCERNING WASHINGTON AND THE IROQUOIS. There were a number of Native American tribes who joined the American cause in the American Revolution. Virtually all the tribes in New England joined their colonial neighbors in the conflict, probably because of the ministry of Jonathan Edwards and David Brainerd to their parents and grandparents. Further south, the Oneida and the Tuscaroras also joined the American cause. Many of these natives served as minutemen and they joined Washington’s army at the Siege of Boston. The British were able to persuade the Iroquois and other tribes to join their side through promises of land guarantees and claims of certain victory over the Colonists. They also incited the natives to attack vulnerable English settlements. Washington was far from perfect, but he considered the attack on the Iroquois during the war an act of self-defense and part of the defensive war against the British and their allies. As president, Washington showed great respect for the sovereignty of the various native tribes and worked tirelessly to establish treaties with them. Alexander McGillivray and 26 other Creek chiefs signed a treaty with President Washington in New York, and it was said that Washington treated the Creek delegation to dinners, parades, and diplomatic ceremonies that equaled those accorded to any European diplomatic mission. The Cherokee chief, John Ross, esteemed Washington so highly that he named son George Washington. During the 1830s-40s when the U.S. government was running roughshod over many of the tribes and their treaties, Ross longingly recalled how the first president had dealt justly with the native peoples.
