People in hell are not there because God didn’t want them, they are there because they didn’t want God! Or they tried to add to, take away from, or otherwise alter THE ONLY WAY To God and Heaven.

KEY WORDS ARE UNDERLINED FOR EMPHASIS.

John 8:31-32 King James Version (KJV)

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 10:1 King James Version (KJV)

10 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Acts 4:10-12 King James Version (KJV)

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Matthew 7:13-23 King James Version (KJV)

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

============================

THE THREE REASONS I WROTE THIS ARTICLE

  1. I have family, friends, and folk here on FB who are NOT saved/NOT Biblical Christians, they see, read, and hear what some who claim to be Christian say/post and it is NO different from what an UNSAVED, NON-CHRISTIAN would say/post. I do NOT want to be confused with these HYPOCRITES. So I am making it CLEAR what IS right, what IS wrong, what IS Christian, and what is NOT Christian for all the unsaved and/or backslid. 
  2. There are family and friends, and celebrities [keep reading] claiming to be Christian who regularly, and casually post profanity, and talk about drinking (booze), engage in immoral sexual acts, and smoking. THAT is NOT Christian. That is NOT Christianity. I am NOTHING like that. I am 100% AGAINST THAT. 
  3. Certain members of my family posted a meme with this message, I cleaned it up BECAUSE CHRISTIANS DO NOT CURSE, NOR USE PROFANITY: Civilian friends are friendly to your face- talk [profane word for poop] behind your back. Military friends talk [profane word for poop] to your face- and have your back. I politely addressed this bald-faced lie saying: I know many HONORABLE Civilians who are honest. And I know many DISHONORABLE Military personnel who are drunks, dopers, liars, cheats, and immoral. One of my own family then posted lying smack and said, ORDERING me: “Step down cuz. You obviously have never been a part of a team…” This was from a FAMILY MEMBER who had NOT even seen me since 1977, and has only heard snippets about me here on FB. I replied politely, yet straightforwardly That when he is wrong, he IS wrong. And Boy, are you WRONG.

So……

I wrote and posted this article in response to between 5-7 different people. Some are family, some are friends, some I just know from FB.

The theme may not apply to everyone on every point, but what does…please PRAYERFULLY consider it in the Light of God’s Word, The Holy Bible.

Some things to consider are, first, these Scriptures:
MATTHEW 7:6, 13-21
JOHN 7:24
JOHN 8:31, 32, 36-44
ROMANS 1:16-32
ROMANS 3:10-18, 23
GALATIANS 1:6-9
GALATIANS 5:16-25
II CORINTHIANS 5:17, 21
II CORINTHIANS 6:14-7:1
MATTHEW 5:6
MATTHEW 6:21, 33

Questions:
Is it CHRIST-LIKE to profess Christianity and to regularly, casually, daily swear, curse, use profanity?

Is it CHRIST-LIKE to make false statements about someone? Especially someone you haven’t seen at all, and heard LITTLE from since 1977?

Is it CHRIST-LIKE to say we love Jesus Christ with ALL our heart, soul, mind, and strength and then live in complacent disobedience or open rebellion against HIS Holy Word & HIS Holy Spirit?

Is someone even CHRIST-LIKE who in their very everyday character, behaviour, and life is NOT CHRIST-LIKE?

BTW, Christ-like=CHRISTIAN.

I used the term Christ-Like for 2 reasons:
1. To drive the point home.
2. A lot of folk PROFESSING to be Christian who do NOT POSSESS Christianity at all.

Pray.
Think.

Some may be questioning what is this all about.
Others are already mad/offended.
Some may be blocking me on FB even now.

Pray.
Think.

FIRST, ESTABLISH THE DEFINITION OF THE TERMS USED.

pa·gan
/ˈpāɡən/Submit
noun
1.
a person holding religious beliefs other than Biblical Judaism and Biblical Christianity, [MY NOTE:which we will see are one and the same thing.]
synonyms: heathen, infidel, idolater, idolatress
“pagans worshiped the sun”
adjective
1.
relating to pagans.
“a pagan god”
synonyms: heathen, ungodly, irreligious, infidel, idolatrous
“the pagan festival”

======================

NEXT, IS CHRISTIANITY BECOMING MORE PAGAN?

Yes.

Back in 1960 and before every mainline Protestant, Evangelical, Pentecostal, and Fundamental Christian church preached, taught, counselled, and thundered against:

ROCK-N-ROLL/CONTEMPORARY MUSIC: SECULAR OR THE PHONY “CHRISTIAN”

HALLOWEEN: IT STILL IS SATAN’S “BIRTHDAY”; WITCHES, GOBLINS, SORCERERS, DEMONS, SEANCES, FORTUNE TELLING, DIVINATION, WIZARDSALL STRAITLY FORBIDDEN REPEATEDLY IN SCRIPTURE

DANCING: THE SENSUAL MOVEMENT AND CONTACT MIXED WITH NON-CHRISTIAN MUSIC THAT STIRS UP LUST

GAMBLING: THE BEING A FOOLISH AND UNFAITHFUL STEWARD OF WHAT GOD BLESSED US WITH

TATTOOS/BODY-PIERCING: THE MAKING OF MARKS, WORDS, PICTURES AND SYMBOLS, AND THE PLACEMENT OF RINGS, CHAINS, AND GAUGES IN ONE’S BODY, AN ACT THAT ORIGINATED IN PAGANISM AND SLAVERY

IMMODEST DRESS: THE SENSUAL ATTIRE THAT ORIGINATED IN HARLOTRY, FORNICATION, AND ADULTERY

CURSING/PROFANITY: WAS EXTREMELY RARE, TO POINT THAT IT DID NOT EXIST IN THE CHRISTIAN’S LIFE AT ALL, NOW THERE THOSE WHO REGULARLY, CASUALLY, AND DAILY CURSE AND CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIAN…NOT KNOWING THAT SUCH A THING IS IMPOSSIBLE

In today’s “church” I have personally seen and heard ALL this taking place IN Christian’s lives, homes, and even IN The House of God, The Church!

Jesus was, AND IS, CLEAR:

Matthew 12:30 King James Version (KJV)

30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

=======================

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE ACTUALLY, REALLY SAY ABOUT JUDGING?

I will post entire Scripture passages to show what GOD really says. BUT…

Can we all agree that in The Bible there is NO higher authority than God/Jesus/The Holy Spirit?

IF YOU agree on that then let’s begin here:

John 7:24 King James Version (KJV)

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

This is The Lord Jesus Christ talking. HE speaks of TWO types of judging here. Superficial, hypocritical, and “righteous judging”.

The superficial/hypocritical Christ straitly forbids.

The Righteous judging HE commands.

Deuteronomy 1:12-18 King James Version (KJV)

12 How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?

13 Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.

14 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.

15 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.

16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

18 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

Here God commands, sets in order, and details the way to judge, judge ONLY according to God’s Word/Law.

Exodus 18:13-23 King James Version (KJV)

13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.

14 And when Moses’ father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto even?

15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:

16 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.

17 And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.

18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:

20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear Godmen of truthhating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.

23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

Psalm 149:6-9 King James Version (KJV)

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;

To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.

Malachi 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, betweenhim that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

[NOTE: In the original Hebrew of the O.T. and Greek of the N.T. discern means: to judge correctly. THIS is very important later on as we’ll see.]

1 Corinthians 5 King James Version (KJV)

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortionerwith such an one no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

[NOTE: God’s Word says Paul passed this judgment though NOT physically present. God’s Word IS Truth, IS Right, no matter the distance or location.]

1 Corinthians 6:1-10 King James Version (KJV)

Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this lifeset them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be notdeceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, norabusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 King James Version (KJV)

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

[NOTE: Here is the word DISCERN again, as 1st seen in Malachi 3:16-18. One of the GIFTS of The Spirit is “discerning of/judging of spirits”. THIS will be seen as very vital later.]

1 Timothy 5:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

2 Timothy 4:1-6 King James Version (KJV)

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

Titus 1:8-16 King James Version (KJV)

But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

1 John 4:1-6 King James Version (KJV)

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth notus. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

[NOTE: From Malachi 3 to I Corinthians 12, now here in I John 4 we see the NEED of DISCERNING OF/judging of spirits, doctrine, truth, error, and right and wrong according TO God’s Word.]

Matthew 18:15-17 King James Version (KJV)

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

[NOTE: This is Jesus talking again, the HIGHEST authority there is, and HE says HOW to execute judgment among the brethren in the church.]

Lastly, THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD, MISUSED SCRIPTURE PASSAGE IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE, by saint and sinner alike.

Matthew 7:1-23 King James Version (KJV)

Judge not, that ye be not judged.

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Thou hypocritefirst cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogsneither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you…

…13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and fewthere be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

===

Many stop at verse one like that is all that The Lord Jesus Christ said.

BUT place that INTO the proper CONTEXT of the rest of the chapter, and indeed, The WHOLE BIBLE, and you see Jesus Christ says in more detail in Matthew chpt. 7 what HE says in John 7:24. Jesus does NOT give a blanket prohibition of judging, BUT of superficial, hypocritical judging.

The Conclusion of the Whole Matter:

  1. STUDY GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  2. LEARN GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  3. BELIEVE GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  4. LIVE BY GOD’S WORD- AGAIN, ALL OF IT.
  5. And when God’s Word says something is right IT IS RIGHT regardless of who says otherwise.
  6. When God’s Word says something is wrong IT IS WRONG regardless of who says otherwise.
  7. Do NOT be shallow.
  8. Do NOT be hypocritical.
  9. Do NOT be hateful, hate-filled, NOR in anyway operate in hate.
  10. If you see a moral or doctrinal error PRAY FIRST. And ALWAYS respond IN and WITH LOVE, [Ephesians 4:15].

If you’re happy that someone failed so you can be the “Bible Cop”…then YOUR heart is not right. Pray. Repent. Get forgiveness. Get restoration.

Two things about Godly judgment:

MUST BE SQUARELY ROOTED IN GOD’S WORD- NO OPINION.

MUST BE COMPLETELY IN AND BY GOD’S LOVE- PERIOD.

You may be asking, “Why do you think this is so important, Rev. Larry?”

My answer…. think of the countless churches, homes, marriages, families, and lives that have been RUINED, some that went to Hell…because no one spoke God’s Word, The Truth, to them in love.

I hope this has been thorough enough. If the response demands it I will follow up….Scout’s Honor.

================================

NOW, FOR SOME SOUL SEARCHING QUESTIONS.

  1. Are we actually Christian if we regularly disobey and transgress God and His Word?
  2. Do we really love Jesus if we don’t obey Him/His Word?
  3. Is The Lord Jesus Christ TRULY our Lord and Saviour if/when we daily live lives that are contrary to and in conflict with His Holy Word?
  4. How does a person claiming to be Christian affect all the lives and souls of the unsaved who ARE watching and listening to THEM curse, swear, get all tatted up, drink, smoke, and are as immoral as the sinner is????
  5. When a person who claims to be a Christian but daily, and casually engages in and lives in sin stands before The Lord Jesus Christ on Judgment Day, what will The Lord Jesus Christ say to them?

=============================

COMMON EXCUSES.

  1.  NO ONE IS PERFECT. False excuse. Of course no one is perfect. ONLY Jesus/God IS perfect. I am NOT perfect- BUT that is NO excuse to be casual about sin, that GOD from Genesis to Revelation forbids and condemns! What IS the Christian response to this then? We are not perfect. BUT by God’s grace, the love of Jesus, and the power and working of The Holy Spirit we CAN live lives overcoming sin, and that ARE Holy.
  2. Christians aren’t better than sinners- just better off. Outright LIE. If Christians are NOT better than sinners than WHAT REAL DIFFERENCE DID JESUS MAKE THEN?!! No. In and of ourselves we are wretched. BUT a person who is solely in and of themselves is NOT saved. A Christian is NOT in and of themselves– we ARE bought with a price, new creatures IN Christ Jesus, victorious NOW over Satan, sin, and the flesh, and by God’s grace we ARE better than sinners.

===========================

CLOSING SALVO.

The false/bogus accusation levied at me that “I obviously had never been part of team” is an outright lie. Spoken in ignorance. But still an outright lie. In was also the hypocritical judging of person they had NOT even seen in 41 years, and has ONLY heard small, brief tidbits here on FB. They know NOTHING about me at all. Yet they did not hesitate to pass false, hypocritical judgment (Remember: there IS good, Biblical judging/judgment), and to outright lie about and to me.

The truth?

I’ve been a part of team…a LONG time. Several teams actually.

  1. I was a street preacher for 12 years. We (15 to sometimes 67 of us) met at church. Prayed for at least one hour. Then on Friday and Saturday nights went in groups of 2-3 to the WORST parts of the K.C. metro area- unarmed- and shared the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. There were times we saw people get on their knees on the sidewalk outside of the bar/nudey joint they just came out of, weeping, and give their hearts to Jesus. Over the 12 year period we had over 3,000 get saved one on one. BUT other times the 2-3 of us were surrounded by as many as 30, angry, violent people, who were arguing and threatening us. We guns pulled on us, knives pulled on us, threw beer bottles at us…remember, we were UNARMED. BUT GOD protected all of us. NOT one was ever hurt. A TEAM of prayer warriors at church. A team of evangelists on the streets, no more than 3 of us against sometimes 15-30 angry, violent people, one time it was against a group of 30 in the motorcycle gang The Black Vultures. We were threatened- NEVER hurt. We were a TEAM. Jesus IS THE Head, The Captain of our salvation. A Team. We had training. We had organization. We had discipline. We had on the spot instructions. We were UNARMED. WE WERE A TEAM.
  2. At Church, at least the one I go to [for almost 19 years] has order, structure, discipline, doctrine, training, teaching, on the spot counselling, a chain of command. WE’RE A TEAM.
  3. The Body of Christ. We love, listen, counsel, advise, learn, and pray for each other. We have each other’s back. WE’RE A TEAM.

If this is NEWS to you…you could have and should have ASKED about it first BEFORE making cockimamey judgments. Also…maybe it’s time to find another church if this is NEWS to you.

Now those who KNOW who this is about have CHOICES:

  1. Prayerfully seek The Lord and draw near to HIM.
  2. OR get mad and do “whatever”.

Those, in reality, are your ONLY two choices.

I can tell you to your face, up front, if ANYONE lies to me, lies about me, and/or makes bogus, false judgments again they are BLOCKED on FB. I love you. Will pray for you. But I aint hanging with ANYONE who is a liar. Period.

An End-Times Refocus.

PRELUDE TO THE REFOCUS.

I’ve written and spoke about this several times, even in the midst of writing and warning about political and governmental issues and politicians I inject that man/men/mankind is NOT the answer, The ONLY Answer is The Lord Jesus Christ, see HERE and HERE.

Some have said I, and Christians in general, should not ever speak or write about politics…keep that to yourself.

Jesus said that ye shall KNOW THE TRUTH, and THE TRUTH shall make you FREE. Jesus also said that The Bible IS TRUTH, and HE IS TRUTH. (John 8:31, 32, 36; John 14:6; John 17:17)

Jesus did NOT say this about love, mercy, grace, or compassion.
CHRIST SAID THIS ABOUT TRUTH.

We are told to speak THE TRUTH in love,
but nonetheless to speak THE TRUTH. (Ephesians 4:15)

The truth is NOT always pleasant-
What is pleasant is NOT always Truth.

Truth is NOT always popular-
What is popular is NOT always Truth.

What is Truth is always Truth…for everyone, everywhere, at all times.

Right is never wrong.

Wrong is never right.

IF you want be free?
Learn
Love
Embrace
Speak
And LIVE THE TRUTH.

An (Re)Introduction to The Terms Used.

BIAS:

Bias is weight in favor of or against an idea or thing; a learned, acquired world-view; an inclination of temperament or outlook/world-view… 

SOURCE .

Every source IS biased due to every source having a person/people involved. ALL people have bias, because ALL people have a world-view, a core of beliefs, opinions, principles, and values that make them who they are and guide them. Biases are learned via nurturing, upbringing, education, and personal experiences.

SOURCES: HERE . HERE . HERE . AND HERE .

WHY ADDRESS THIS SUBJECT?

BECAUSE the church is divided and fractured. It has been for a LONG time, but is growing more severe and corrosive. 

Within the Body of Christ today we have:

  1. People who blindly accept that a celebrity is a “Christian” even though they’re shacking up committing fornication, the woman gets pregnant out of wedlock, and the “Church” they go to has sodomites/homosexuals/lesbians in KEY LEADERSHIP positions.
  2. People who blindly say a politician is “The Chosen One” and support him/her even though this person is deeply and daily: profane, vile, depraved, perverted, lewd, dishonest on everything (aka a LIAR), authoritarian, despotic, arrogant, greedy, corrupt, fraudulent, and engages in bribery, blackmail, bullying, and treason just to advance himself/herself.
  3. People who say ONLY what agrees with them and their preconceived view(s) “is right”- ALL ELSE is wrong/”biased”, “fake news”, “the enemy of the people/state”.

There is much more. It IS much deeper than this…and MUCH worse than this…BUT these are what currently precipitated this article.

EXAMPLE 1.

If you’re rooting around in the dung heap of the:
“Prosperity gospel”, “Positive confession gospel”, “self-esteem gospel”, the “word of faith gospel”, or any other FALSE “gospel” for nuggets of truth, what you are engaging in is akin to dumpster diving for green bologna to eat when you have a FREE T-BONE steak dinner!
98% of rat poison is GOOD FOOD- it’s the 2% POISON THAT KILLS.
The same with dumpster diving for nuggets of God’s Holy, Eternal Truth in False teachers and False doctrine.
II CORINTHIANS 6:14-7:1 commands Disciples of The Lord Jesus Christ to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM.
You want Truth?
Pray.
Read your Bible.
Go to a good, Biblically-sound church with a Godly minister.
But dumpster diving in False doctrine WILL make you spiritually, morally, mentally, and emotionally sick, and it WILL steal, kill, and destroy you. (John 10:1, 10)

ON THE ESSENTIALS BE UNITED.

ON THE NON-ESSENTIALS BE CAREFUL.

EXAMPLE 2.

===

The FALSE Choice For Christians:
Either be a witness for The Lord Jesus Christ, or engage in the BOGUSLY titled “culture war”.
As Christians we ARE TO BE Light and Salt.
We are to have a Godly, Christian influence and impact on ALL of society.
“Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.”
IF a Christian is truly BEING a witness they WILL BE the Salt and Light Jesus told us to be. Read Acts, Exodus 18, Deuteronomy 1…and see what God’s Word says of Believers…and what God expects, and what WE should expect from leaders.
IF we truly are leading souls to Jesus AND disciplining them then we WILL influence and impact our society.
We have a Godless SOCIETY BECAUSE
We have Christless people.
Jesus wants His Disciples to BE Salt and Light in EVERY aspect of life, including society and culture.

===

EXAMPLE 3.

I hear Christians say we “can’t legislate morality”. Really?

ANY government at all is a legislation of morality.

It’s a matter for each of us to decide what we will comply with and what we won’t.

Laws against pedophilia are a legislation against immorality.

Laws against murder, rape, theft, arson, fraud, embezzlement, blackmail, mugging, abortion (see murder), pedophilia, ALL LAWS ARE THE LEGISLATING OF MORALITY. 

I have no problem with those. 

These same “Christians” say this because they are either ignorant, illiterate of God’s Word on the matter, OR they don’t want their life and choices scrutinised by the light of God’s Word.

The FALSE argument, based on a FALSE doctrine, that is based on OUT-OF-CONTEXT misreading of The Word of God. This out-of-context MISREADING happens due to: 1) lack of serious Bible study, and poor understanding of Bible doctrine, coupled with poor comprehension, and IN CONTEXT READING/STUDY; OR 2) a deliberate attempt to deceive, delude, and muddy the issue(s) with false, out-of-context “quotes”.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE ACTUALLY, REALLY SAY ABOUT JUDGING?

I will post entire Scripture passages to show what GOD really says. Let us begin.

Can we all agree that in The Bible there is NO higher authority than God/Jesus/The Holy Spirit?

IF you do not agree there is NO point in further discussion…UNLESS you’re truly open minded to The Truth.

IF YOU agree on that then let’s begin here:

John 7:24 King James Version (KJV)

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

This is The Lord Jesus Christ talking. HE speaks of TWO types of judging here. Superficial, hypocritical, and “righteous judging”.

The superficial/hypocritical Christ straitly forbids.

The Righteous judging HE commands.

Image result for RIGHT IS ALWAYS RIGHT.

 

===

Deuteronomy 1:12-18 King James Version (KJV)

12 How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?

13 Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.

14 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.

15 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.

16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

18 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

Here God commands, sets in order, and details the way to judge, judge ONLY according to God’s Word/Law.

===

Exodus 18:13-23 King James Version (KJV)

13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.

14 And when Moses’ father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto even?

15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:

16 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.

17 And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.

18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:

20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear Godmen of truthhating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.

23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

===

Psalm 149:6-9 King James Version (KJV)

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;

To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.

===

Malachi 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

[NOTE: In the original Hebrew of the O.T. and Greek of the N.T. discern means: to judge correctly. THIS is very important later on as we’ll see.]

 

===

1 Corinthians 5 King James Version (KJV)

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already,as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

6Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortionerwith such an one no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

[NOTE: God’s Word says Paul passed this judgment though NOT physically present. God’s Word IS Truth, IS Right, no matter the distance or location.]

===

1 Corinthians 6:1-10 King James Version (KJV)

Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this lifeset them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

===

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 King James Version (KJV)

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

[NOTE: Here is the word DISCERN again, as 1st seen in Malachi 3:16-18. One of the GIFTS of The Spirit is “discerning of/judging of spirits”. THIS will be seen as very vital later. I John 4:1-6]

 

===

1 Timothy 5:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

[NOTE: THIS IS A COMMAND.]

===

2 Timothy 4:1-6 King James Version (KJV)

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

===

Titus 1:8-16 King James Version (KJV)

But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

===

1 John 4:1-6 King James Version (KJV)

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

[NOTE: From Malachi 3 to I Corinthians 12, now here in I John 4 we see the NEED of DISCERNING OF/judging of spirits, doctrine, truth, error, and right and wrong according TO God’s Word.]

===

Matthew 18:15-17 King James Version (KJV)

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

[NOTE: This is Jesus talking again, the HIGHEST authority there is, and HE says HOW to execute judgment among the brethren in the church.]

===

2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 King James Version (KJV)

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

[NOTE: Via God’s Word we KNOW who to fellowship with- and who NOT to fellowship with.]

===

Romans 16:17-20 King James Version (KJV)

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

===

Lastly, THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD, MISUSED SCRIPTURE PASSAGE IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE, by saint and sinner alike.

Matthew 7:1-23 King James Version (KJV)

Judge not, that ye be not judged.

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Thou hypocritefirst cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogsneither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you…

…13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

===

Many stop at verse one like that is all that The Lord Jesus Christ said.

BUT place that INTO the proper CONTEXT of the rest of the chapter, and indeed, The WHOLE BIBLE and you see Jesus Christ says in more detail in Matthew chpt. 7 what HE says in John 7:24. Jesus does NOT give a blanket prohibition of judging, BUT of superficial, hypocritical judging.

The Conclusion of the Whole Matter:

  1. STUDY GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  2. LEARN GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  3. BELIEVE GOD’S WORD- ALL OF IT.
  4. LIVE BY GOD’S WORD- AGAIN, ALL OF IT.
  5. And when God’s Word says something is right IT IS RIGHT regardless of who says otherwise.
  6. When God’s Word says something is wrong IT IS WRONG regardless of who says otherwise.
  7. Do NOT be shallow.
  8. Do NOT be hypocritical.
  9. Do NOT be hateful, hate-filled, NOR in anyway operate in hate.
  10. If you see a moral or doctrinal error PRAY FIRST. And ALWAYS respond IN and WITH LOVE, [Ephesians 4:15].

If you’re happy that someone failed so you can be the “Bible Cop”…then YOUR heart is not right. Pray. Repent. Get forgiveness. Get restoration.

Two things about Godly judgment:

MUST BE SQUARELY ROOTED IN GOD’S WORD- NO OPINION.

MUST BE COMPLETELY IN AND BY GOD’S LOVE- PERIOD.

You may be asking, “Why do you think this is so important, Rev. Larry?”

My answer…. think of the countless churches, homes, marriages, families, and lives that have been RUINED, some that went to Hell…because no one spoke God’s Word, The Truth, to them in love.

=============================

BIBLICAL MAXIMS:

  1. WHAT we know and call Conservatism, God and His Word calls RIGHTEOUSNESS, aka RIGHT/MORAL.
  2. WHAT we know call Liberalism, God and His Word calls UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, aka WRONG/IMMORAL.
  3. THE MORE TIME PRAYERFULLY SPENT IN God’s Word the more Conservative we become. SOURCES: HERE . HERE . HERE . HERE . HERE .
  4. Right is ALWAYS right.
  5. Wrong is ALWAYS wrong.
  6. Truth IS Truth. Period. There is NO “That is ‘your truth’.” There is TRUTH and your/my opinion.
  7. Two opposing views are NOT, and CAN NOT, both be right. ONLY ONE can be right. EXAMPLE: 2+2 can NOT BOTH equal 4 and “any other number”. Gravity does NOT BOTH pull us down and and make us to float. Fire is NOT BOTH hot and cold.
  8. The closer we get to The Truth the more our thinking, doctrine, attitudes, speech, behaviour, and life become Right.

=============

IF YOU want to believe that a person who commits serial adultery, commits fraud, commits perjury, lies, admits to and brags about sexual assault, who is an egomaniac, sells out his/her country for personal favors/property/$$$, sells out their barely-there-thinly-veiled-pretense at RELIGION, berates and insults everyone, is a bigot, and a LIFE-LONG LIBERAL is “somehow”: The Chosen One of God, Godly, moral Christian, and is honest, and a true patriot servant…then go right ahead and do so. BUT DO NOT EXPECT rational, moral, praying, Bible reading, Reality based Christian Conservatives to fall for that nonsense. Especially when there is NOT ONE shred of proof to support your BOGUS claim.

IF you have any REAL proof present it to be examined and evaluated.

BUT DO NOT say all sources that disagree with you are biased, “fake news”, and lies…just because YOU don’t like it. THAT is NOT a rational argument.

THAT IS CHILDISH AND CHURLISH.

America is dying, if not already dead, because for too long too many have believed convenient delusions rather than HONESTLY examining ALL the evidence, facts, and eye-witnesses.

WORSE, The Church of The Lord Jesus Christ is exchanging the incorruptible Truth for a LIE at ever increasing rates til what passes for THE Church today bears little-to-no resemblance to THE Biblical Church of The Lord Jesus Christ at all!

============================

IN CLOSING I POST TWO MORE SCRIPTURE PASSAGES AND THEN A “SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE PAST”:

Ezekiel 3:16-21

16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

===

Ezekiel 33:1-20

33 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.

16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

=================

LASTLY, “THE SPECIAL MESSAGE”:

“Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death”

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not [Jer. 5:21], the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry  for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss [Matt. 26:48]. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If
we wish to be free– if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending–if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house?  Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?  Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us [2 Chron. 32:8]. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone [Eccl. 9:11]; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace [Jer. 6:14].  The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field!  Why stand we here idle [Matt. 20:6]? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

WHERE IS OUR EZEKIEL? WHERE IS OUR PATRICK HENRY?

What A (Christian) Man Wants

Prelude.

More specifically, what a Christian Man wants in a relationship. I will not pretend to “speak for all men”, I speak for me alone, but I do feel this WILL resonate with a lot of Christian Men, AND even Christian women.

What I USE TO Think was important, even necessary.

B.C. BEFORE CHRIST (CAME INTO MY HEART AND LIFE).

BEFORE I gave my heart to Jesus…the ONLY requirements for a woman were:

  1. Pretty face.
  2. Killer figure.
  3. Have a pulse.
  4. Like me.

AFTER BECOMING A CHRISTIAN: THE EARLY YEARS

I gave my heart and life to The Lord Jesus Christ when I was 17…so my list did change…some…at first.

  1. Be a Christian.
  2. Like/share some of the same hobbies/interests.
  3. Pretty face.
  4. Killer Figure.
  5. Like me.

It was not long though in my DAILY Christian walk that I saw and learned some things.

NOT everyone claiming to BE Christian IS one. A LOT of fakes, phonies, shallow, and wishy-washy folk who lay claim to being a Christian, but are either new/weak in their faith, or hypocrites. 

And sharing the same hobbies and interests IS good- it only goes so far.

LOOKS? Though nice, are NOT enough. NOT even close. A lot of fine women in the church world who are Jezebels, Delilahs, and sexual predators, (yes, female sexual predators ARE real. They live to seduce, conquor, then dump as many foolish Christian men as they can…I was married to one. The world calls them “Cougars”, God calls them wicked).

And like, even what a lot of Christians call love, is very shallow, transient, fickle, and flesh based. “I love you”…later that day…they’re flirting with someone else. THIS is definitely NOT love. Affection? maybe. Attraction? possibly, and quite shallow at that. Lust? mostly, sadly, and briefly…til their next conquest arrives.

So, What am I looking for, my REQUIREMENTS now? Glad You asked…

  1. BE A REAL, BIBLICAL, FAITHFUL TO GOD, FAITHFUL TO CHURCH CHRISTIAN. MUST have a track record of faithful attendance to the House of God, Prayer, Worship. MUST Have. MUST BE.
  2. MUST be Baptised in The Holy Ghost and Fire, or ACTIVELY seeking and praying for it…MUST.
  3. MUST LOVE The Lord Jesus Christ SO MUCH that worship is natural, easy, and a joy.
  4. MUST have a DAILY devotional and prayer time; MUST hunger, thirst, and seek after The Lord Jesus Christ with ALL your heart, with ALL your soul, with ALL your mind, and with ALL your strength. NO shallow, wishy-washieness. NO Biblical illiteracy. MUST be rooted and grounded IN and UPON The Lord Jesus Christ.
  5. MUST LOVE ME FOR ME. I am NOT a “project” for you to work on and change. Together we WILL be open and honest, and help each other to grow and BE more like The Lord Jesus Christ. That DOES mean helping each other to change, to grow IN Christ. It does NOT mean to change the very core person that Jesus created and saved. The change(s) that need to be made- make via prayer, love, PATIENCE, communication, openness, honesty, trust, respect, and, oh, PRAYER.
  6. MUST HONESTLY COMMUNICATE, MUST. No one is a “mind reader”. While I AM good at reading people and determining the general mood they are in- I can NOT read minds. COMMUNICATE. HONEST COMMUNICATION IS VITAL. NOT an option.
  7. DAILY GROW IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND IN OUR RELATIONSHIP TOGETHER. We should not be in the same place in our relationship 5 months, a year, 30 years in as we were when we first met. There MUST be a DAILY hunger, thirst, and seeking, a DAILY growing in The Lord.
  8. PATIENCE AND HUMILITY, are MUSTS. We ARE Christians (wont even date a non-Christian), BUT we ARE still humans and make mistakes, fall, sin. BE PATIENT. BE HUMBLE. This takes DAILY drawing upon GOD’S mercy, grace, peace, strength, and love.

It ALL begins with, centers on, is focused on, and ends with JESUS.

Yes, I DO want the passion, the affection, the intimacy…BUT ONLY as God prescribes, and ONLY in a LIFE built on and in The Lord Jesus Christ.

Lastly, I’ve finally learned, and am learning, to wait on GOD. Pursue The Lord. Trust Jesus explicitly and implicitly…in and for everything. Rather than worry, fret, and stew over “Where is Miss Right?”…BECOME Mr. Right and let GOD do what ONLY GOD can do.

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

The Answer Is NOT In Man

DELUSION. DENIAL. THE (ONLY) END HOPE.

PRELUDE.

The “THE END” has been coming on for a long time. In truth, since Christ’s first coming (virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, flawless doctrine, false arrest, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension) Christ and his disciples have said we were in “The Last Days”. In Matthew chapters 24 and 25, in Mark chpt. 13, and in Luke chapters 17 and 21 we see The Lord Jesus Christ giving great detail of  the sign of The End of the end. His disciples echoed that via the unction of The Holy Spirit in I Timothy 4:1-3; II Timothy 3:1-8, 12, 13; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Thessalonians 5:1-12; I Corinthians 15:51-57.

At this time we will focus on but one of these passages, II Thessalonians 2:2-12, (this will corroborated and elaborated on with other Scripture passages at the end).

DELUSION.

II THESSALONIANS 2:2-12

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

===

1 John 2:18 King James Version (KJV)

18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Matthew 24:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

…12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Romans 1:17-32

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

===

1 Timothy 4:1-3 

1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

===

2 Timothy 3:1-8 

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

===

Matthew 7:6-23 

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

===

In the above passages of Scripture we see The Lord Jesus Christ and His Discipes warn about and against False Christ’s, False Prophets, False Teachers, and even against False “Believers”.

Great detail is given to describe them, let’s collect and catalogue them into a list, then look at it:

MANY warnings against being deceived, deception, and delusion.

MANY warnings about those who reject and exchange Truth for a lie.

MANY warnings against exalting one’s self above The Lord God.

MANY warnings against False Christs, Prophets, Teachers, Believers.

MANY warnings about lying, covetousness, immorality, unholiness, wickedness, greed, fierceness/man’s wrath, and pride.

MANY warnings against heresy, blasphemy, seducing spirits/doctrine…

THAT sounds like someone…

HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO: This deals with the political delusion, but can be applied to the “prosperity gospel”, “positive confession gospel”, self esteem gospel”, word of faith gospel”…ALL are delusions, aka False.

A Democrat is President (BHO, HRC, Biden…) and a GOP Majority in BOTH Houses of Congress. This president apologises to all America’s enemies while attacking and mocking America’s allies. This President makes lurid, lewd, vile, and vulgar statements PUBLICLY about women, physically and mentally handicapped people, veterans (living and deceased), and their families, too), American Congressmen, Senators, and Judges.  This President lies habitually, regularly, and always; this President lies about their lies while telling more lies. This President falsely accuses many others of being guilty of what she/he is actually doing.  This President publicly and privately asks for, seeks, and receives information for personal favors from FOREIGN, ENEMY Nations regarding several elections, and the enacting of policy. This President has scandals about their scandals; they refuse to turn over emails, documents, tax records, and other evidence that has been LAWFULLY SUBPOENAED. This President orders, bribes and threatens all associated with them to NOT testify, and to NOT turn over any evidence. This president has 8 of their closest campaign and administration aides found or plea GUILTY to multiple FELONY charges, ALL that stem from doing precisely what this President told them to do.

This President can not spell, and has horrid grammar, it is so bad that 5th graders are scene smirking and rolling their eyes while in a photo op of this President speaking. This President in speeches, interviews, and on social media shows anger, frustration, rage, greed, lust, and a growing inability to speak cogently. This President’s mental and physical health is poor and getting noticeably worse each day.

This President after being investigated WAS determined that if she/he were NOT President that they WOULD be indicted, arrested, and on their way to prison. In documents, reports, and Congressional testimony…this President is accused, and guilty, of crimes…

Should, and would, the Republican Congress then move swiftly to impeach and remove Hillary? Obama? Biden? Kerry? 

The answer is clearly YES. Yes the GOP WOULD move to impeach and remove Hillary, Obama, Biden, or Kerry. And be quick and determined about it.

Well, there is a REPUBLICAN President that HAS done exactly, and ALL of this, and IS STILL DOING IT, AND MUCH MORE THAT WAS LEFT OUT DUE TO TIME AND SPACE RESTRAINTS.

This Republican President IS Donald Trump.

NEXT…

Every Conservative and every “Christian” defending and supporting Trump is, at best, DELUDED, or, at worst, as corrupt as he is.

====

DENIAL.

Right now, at this very instance, every defender and supporter of Trump is mad.

Be honest.

Ask yourself WHY are you mad?

I have many family and close friends, most are Conservative and Christian AND they KNOW and ADMIT that he has said and done a whole lot of these things…and yet…still, astoundingly, support and defend Trump.

WHY?

YOU KNOW FULL GOOD AND WELL THAT IF THIS WERE HILLARY OR ANY OTHER DEMOCRAT YOU WOULD BE DEAD-SET AGAINST THEM.

Yet because it is Trump saying and doing THE EXACT SAME THINGS YOU WOULD RIP BALLISTIC ON HILLARY ABOUT….you defend and support him.

WHY?

YOU argue and debate saying “But the judge picks” [BOTH Trump’s Supreme Court picks have ALREADY sided with the Liberal Justices at least TWICE. AND BOTH, along with Trump’s hand picked Crohn-ie for Attorney General, Billie “Back Scratcher” Barr, think that the President should be immune to scrutiny and investigation, and categorise investigation into REAL CRIMES and Impeachment as being a coup and an overthrow of government, while KNOWING that America’s Founding Fathers made it an integral part of THE CONSTITUTION.]

YOU argue and debate saying “But Trump’s tax cuts” [Which were written and worded to benefit WALL Street, NOT Main Street, and are grossly offset by Trump’s stupid tariffs/tax war on the poor, middle class, and the farmer, auto industry, and small business. Add to that Trump’s MARXIST $1,400,000,000,000 SPENDING BILL- that’s 1.4 TRILLION DOLLARS in one felled swoop!]

YOU argue and debate saying “Trump cut 60 million dollars from Planned ParentHOOD” [BUT then gave PP MULTIPLE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. That cut was like robbing a Quik Trip of a NICKLE!!]

AGAIN, WHY DO YOU DEFEND AND SUPPORT TRUMP????

WHY?

Trump is deluded and delusional. Corrupt and criminal. Depraved and dishonest.

Conservative, Christian, WHY do YOU support and defend him? WHY?

ADMIT you were, and are wrong. ADMIT that Trump is NO different than any Democrat, and far worse than many Democrats. ADMIT that Trump is corrupt, lying, a fraud, and a Criminal.

A Fundamental, Evangelical, Baptist Church sign reads:

 

THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE FOR YOU IS TO CONTINUE IN DENIAL.

 

 

==================

THE (ONLY) END HOPE.

The problem?

Too many have placed their faith, trust, and hope in MAN.

THAT is the root of Epic Failure. Period.

Even back with the Founding Fathers, Lincoln, Coolidge, or most recently, Reagan our faith, trust, and hope should not have been in man. 

They were good and great men…but…they were JUST MEN. And as such, like you and me, had faults and failures, sins…weaknesses.

THE Answer then, as it IS now, is ONLY put trust in those who ARE trustworthy and faithful, and ONLY as they continued to manifest and exhibit virtues worthy of following.

BUT NEVER were we, NOR are we, to place our trust in MAN. ONLY GOD NEVER FAILS.

Proverbs 3:5-6 

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

What has happened to the Conservatives and to the church world is too many got spoiled with having a Reagan that they looked for another Reagan…ignoring that Reagan was JUST A MAN, and like us all, had faults, failures, and sins. Reagan’s amnesty, though he intended it to have teeth, was the beginning of the end of our southern border.

No.

What we need is not another Reagan.

And Trump is FAR FROM anything remotely good/moral.

No.

What…WHO we need is The Lord Jesus Christ. Period. ALWAYS. ONLY.

To wrap this up…what does Rev. Larry Lee Wallenmeyer see and hear going on, and about to happen?

I see all that Christ Jesus and His Disciples mentioned above coming to a head, happening all at once… I see things have gotten steadily worse and worse, are at a horrid and depraved state GLOBALLY…also…I see NO ONE with the will or thew ability to do anything about it.

There IS a very small remnant that has not bowed their knee to Baal…very small remnant, Isaiah 1:9.

I see the entire world racing to Globalism/One World Government, looking for “The One”…and in return getting The Great Tribulation and Armageddon.

I see The Lord Jesus Christ coming FOR His Church, His Bride, soon…very SOON.

As the world rocks and reels toward ruin-
the Church of The Lord Jesus Christ is about TO RISE!

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

This IS Reality: Plain and Simple

The scrutiny of Trump & Co. pre-dates his 2015 announcement to run for President. Trump has been under criminal and civil investigation for decades. Due to his wealth, name, and notoriety he has escaped jail time, BUT has had large and heavy fines levied against him due his unethical, fraudulent, bigoted, and criminal activities. Trump is so crooked, so corrupt that by June 2016 (3 years ago)Trump already had 3,500 cases brought AGAINST him in State and/or Federal Courts!

For a VERY detailed look and listing of Trump’s Mafia connections, Russian mob connections, and Criminal activity read this: REMARKABLE TREASON .

So when one hears Trump and his deflect-n-defenders rattle off Putin/KGB talking points in Trump’s defense one should NOT be surprised. This is merely a continuation of “The Trump Life”.

Trump and his supporters, aka disciples, rattle off the litany of Proven-To-Be-BOGUS defense talking-points, like: “witch hunt”, “fake news”, “deep state”, “Crowd Strike”, “Obama/Hillary”, “exonerated fully”…

BUT…what IS The Reality of all this?

Under the Mueller probe alone 6 close Trump associates have been found GUILTY of crimes related to TRUMP! 

Since the impeachment and investigating into the Ukrainian blackmail and bribery two more of Trump’s associates are charged and arrested for crimes!

Questions:

  1. WHY would a “squeaky clean boy scout” hand pick and surround himself with nothing but crooks, liars, frauds, pedophiles, rapists, Mafia, Russian mobsters, thieves, and assorted CRIMINALS?
  2.  How come ALL of this “squeaky clean boy scout’s” closest friends, advisors, associates, business partners, family, administrative staff, lawyers are crooked, depraved, and corrupt, many either IN prison, indicted, or under investigation?
  3. How can someone be “squeaky clean boy scout” who has had 13 FAILED businesses, (MORE SOURCING), and has BANKRUPTED 6/SIX BUSINESSES, including hotels, resorts, his own airline, and even CASINOS! His supporter drones argue, “Yeah, but he’s NEVER personally be bankrupt, just his businesses.” Yes, which left ALL those employed unemployed and penniless, left the investors with yuge losses, BUT lined Trump (and the Mob’s) coffers with cash!
  4. Lastly, how can Trump be a “squeaky clean boy scout” when from the 1970’s-2016 he had ALREADY accumulated over 3,500 civil and criminal cases AGAINST him, and since 2016 has been Trump and his pals have been under court scrutiny by several state and Federal courts, by the FBI, by Special Counsel (Kudos Robert Mueller), by 3 Congressional committees, and at least 2 Inspector Generals, and now is being Impeached?

 

THAT was with what we knew in July, 5 months ago. Mueller stated emphatically that Trump could be charged with CRIMES upon leaving office…

And today…add to that this:

Over 500 law professors say Trump engaged in ‘impeachable conduct’ in his dealings with Ukraine

SOURCE .

President Donald Trump meets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the InterContinental Barclay New York hotel during the United Nations General Assembly, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, in New York. AP Photo/Evan Vucci

  • Over 500 legal scholars signed an open letter stating President Donald Trump engaged in “impeachable conduct” in his dealings with Ukraine.
  • The letter said there’s “overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election.”
  • The scholars said both chambers of Congress “would be acting well within their constitutional powers” if they ultimately vote to impeach and remove Trump.

====================

So…what are all you Trump supporters going to say about this?

  1. He’s innocent. (HA!)
  2. He’s being framed by “Deep State”, “Fake News”, Obama”, “Hillary”, “Biden”…(HA!)
  3. He’s uncouth, but not criminal. (HA!)
  4. Witch Hunt! (HA!)

 

 

REALITY IS THAT TRUMP IS:

 

This “witch hunt” sure got a LOT of “witches”…

 

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

Reality vs. Myth

In the Trump Universe of “Alternative Facts” the G.O.P., the former “Party of Lincoln, Coolidge, and Reagan”, the Republicans say THIS NONSENSE:

GOP impeachment report claims Trump did nothing wrong

SOURCE .

 

President Trump committed “no quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, or abuse of power,” Republicans on the House committees investigating the Ukraine controversy have concluded in a 110-page report reviewed by Axios ahead of its formal release.

Why it matters: The report provides the basis for Republicans’ rejection of Democrats’ anticipated articles of impeachment against the president for the remainder of the House proceedings…

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a statement responding to the report:

The Minority’s rebuttal document, intended for an audience of one, ignores voluminous evidence that the president used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political rival by withholding military aid and a White House meeting the President of Ukraine desperately sought. In so doing, the President undermined our national security and the integrity of our elections.”

MORE ON “ALTERNATIVE FACTS” . AND HERE .

Some pertinent and logical questions IF Trump really did NO wrong, then:

  1. Why fire Comey?
  2. Why pressure Sessions to “retire”?
  3. Why the continued train of lies about “witch hunt”, “deep state”, Obama, Hillary, now Biden, “Fake News”, and the stupid Alex Jones-esque conspiracies??
  4. Why the document destruction?
  5. Why the stonewalling?
  6. Why ORDER all involved to NOT testify and NOT provide evidence?
  7. Why tamper with evidence?
  8. Why tamper with and threaten witnesses?
  9. Why withhold evidence that has repeatedly been lawfully subpoenaed?
  10. Why say that you WILL, and then repeatedly refuse to testify and/or be interviewed UNDER OATH?

Not one bit of that is the work of an INNOCENT man.

REALITY SAYS:

Report: Trump Knew About Complaint Before Aid Released

He distances himself from Giuliani’s Ukraine work

SOURCE .

By Rob Quinn,  Newser Staff
Posted Nov 27, 2019 6:43 AM CST

(NEWSER) – New allegations in the New York Times could be big news for the impeachment inquiry, if they can be proven. The Times, citing “two people familiar with the matter,” reports that President Trump knew about the whistleblower’s complaint when he decided to unfreeze military aid to Ukraine. The sources say Trump, who released the aid on Sept. 11, learned in late August that he had been accused of wrongdoing in withholding the aid while pressuring Ukraine’s president to carry out investigations that could help him politically. Trump was told about the complaint by White House counsel Pat Cippolone and other lawyers who were trying to figure out whether they were required to submit it to Congress, the sources say.

Days before Trump released the aid, he told US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland that no “quid pro quo” was involved. According to the Times‘ sources, Trump would have known at the time that investigators suspected otherwise. Bloomberg reports that the president is distancing himself from Rudy Giuliani’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. He told former Fox host Bill O’Reilly in an interview Tuesday that he did not direct his attorney to Ukraine to push for investigations. “No, I didn’t direct him,” Trump said. “No, but you have to understand, Rudy is a great corruption fighter.” Giuliani has said his Ukraine investigation was “done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges.” (Giuliani says he’s not worried about Trump throwing him under the bus.)

=================

The LAST line above is pure fantasy. The reality is, YES, Trump knew he was being reported for “quid pro quo”, and, YES, Trump is distancing himself from Giuliani’s Ukrainian “work”…aka as further evidence and witness tampering. BUT…and with Trump this is a BIG butt, the last line saying Giuliani is not worried about Trump throwing him under the bus is pure fantasy, aka LIE.

Here’s the reality:

‘I have insurance’: Giuliani warns Trump to not throw him ‘under the bus’ over Ukraine scandal during Fox News interview

Published

SOURCE .

On Fox News Saturday, Rudy Giuliani sat for an interview with Ed Henry, and appeared to suggest that President Donald Trump wouldn’t dare let him go down for the Ukraine scheme, because Giuliani could take him down with him.

“I’ve seen things written like ‘He is going to throw me under the bus,’” said Giuliani. “When they say that, I say, ‘He isn’t, but I have insurance.’”…

…He also accused his indicted associate Lev Parnas of lying about the role of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) in the Ukraine scheme, and appeared to threaten him as well, warning that he “could make himself into another Michael Cohen” — a reference to Trump’s former lawyer who was excommunicated from the president’s circle and is now serving a federal prison sentence for fraud and tax evasion.

=====================

THE MYTH: Trump wont throw me under the bus. We have a “very good” relationship.

THE REALITY: Rudy threatens to take Trump down with him, AND threatens Lev Parnas, a former associate of HIS, who has been charged with fraud and corruption linked TO THE UKRAINE!

Pelosi to Trump: You’re Invited

Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer invite the president to stand up for himself

SOURCE .

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to testify in front of investigators in the House impeachment inquiry ahead of a week that will see several key witnesses appear publicly, the AP reports. Pushing back against accusations from the president that the process has been stacked against him, Pelosi said Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses. “If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ Face the Nation. Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants,” she said. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer echoed that suggestion.

“If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet. He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath,” Schumer told reporters. He said the White House’s insistence on blocking witnesses from cooperating begs the question: “What is he hiding?”

=================

Trump’s MYTH:

He said he’d provide “written testimony” UNDER OATH to the Impeachment hearings.

REALITY?

Friday, December 6th was the deadline to so. Did Trump follow through on the dual invitation AS HE SAID HE WOULD?

Let The Record show that the answer is NO. NO, Trump did NOT comply at all. Whine? Yes.

Blather with rage? YES.

Lie? OF COURSE, THAT’S ALL TRUMP DOES IS LIE.

But show up or send written testimony UNDER OATH?? Ya gotta be kiddin’ me! NO.

======================

MORE TRUMP MYTH:

Trump Says He Knows ‘Nothing’ About Overheard Phone Call

Diplomat says Trump asked about ‘investigations’ while talking to another diplomat

SOURCE .

…The first two witnesses were William Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs. Some highlights:

  • Another phone call: In a new piece of information, Taylor testified that a member of his staff overheard Trump ask about the “the investigations” during a phone call with diplomat Gordon Sondland, reports the AP. The call took place one day after Trump’s call to the Ukraine president in July. (Sondland and the Taylor staffer were in a restaurant together when Trump called.) During the conversation, Sondland told Trump the Ukrainians were poised to move forward. After the call, the Taylor staffer asked Sondland what Trump thought about Ukraine. “Sondland responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden, which (Rudy) Giuliani was pressing for,” said Taylor, per Axios.
  • More on that: Politico sees the call as “an explosive new detail,” and the Washington Post agrees, saying it ties Trump “more directly to the effort to pressure Ukraine to probe his political opponents.” Plus, it undermines Trump’s previous assertion that he barely knows Sondland. …Taylor said his “clear understanding” was that Ukraine aid and investigations were linked…
  • When Kent was asked if there was any truth to the theory that Joe Biden pushed Ukraine to fire a prosecutor in order to protect his son, he answered, “None whatsoever,” per the Wall Street Journal. He shot down the conspiracy theory, one pushed by the White House, that it was Ukraine, not Russia, that interfered in the 2016 election. “I think it’s amply clear that Russian interference was at the heart of the interference.”

 

Trump’s MYTH that he “knew nothing” about phone calls, knew nothing about Giuliani’s “mission” to and in the Ukraine????

REALITY is that a table full of people on TWO separate occasions heard on the Trump side and on the Sondland or Giuliani side the conversations!!!

5 Big Lines From House Panel’s Impeachment Report

Intelligence committee outlines case against Trump

SOURCE.

The next step in the impeachment process has unfolded: The House Intelligence Committee has released a 300-page report outlining evidence against President Trump. The panel is expected to approve the report in a party-line vote later Tuesday and send it to the Judiciary Committee ahead of that panel’s first impeachment hearing on Wednesday, reports the AP. Some of the big lines, from the AP, NBC NewsPolitico, and the Washington Post:

  • The impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, uncovered a months long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”
  • [T]he President placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the US presidential election process, and endangered US national security.”
  • To compel the Ukrainian President to do his political bidding, President Trump conditioned two official acts on the public announcement of the investigations: a coveted White House visit and critical US military assistance Ukraine needed to fight its Russian adversary.”
  • “President Trump engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction of this impeachment inquiry.”
  • “The damage to our system of checks and balances, and to the balance of power within our three branches of government, will be long-lasting and potentially irrevocable if the president’s ability to stonewall Congress goes unchecked. Any future president will feel empowered to resist an investigation into their own wrongdoing, malfeasance, or corruption, and the result will be a nation at far greater risk of all three.”

@RepAdamSchiff

Over 500 legal scholars agree President Trump committed impeachable conduct: President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking foreign interference in our elections for his personal, political benefit at the expense of national security interests.

SOURCE .

  • Over 500 legal scholars signed an open letter stating President Donald Trump engaged in “impeachable conduct” in his dealings with Ukraine.

  • The letter said there’s “overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election.”

  • The scholars said both chambers of Congress “would be acting well within their constitutional powers” if they ultimately vote to impeach and remove Trump.

Republican senator refuses to stop parroting Kremlin propaganda

SOURCE .

Sen. John Kennedy argued in a testy exchange with NBC’s Chuck Todd that “both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election,” claiming without evidence that former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko “actively worked” for Hillary Clinton.

Todd responded: “You realize that the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is Vladimir Putin. … Are you at all concerned that you have been duped?”

MORE SOURCES …CONTAINS VIDEO.

HERE’S THE KEY EXCHANGE:

KENNEDY: You should read the articles, Chuck, because they are well-documented. And I believe that a Ukrainian district court in December 2018 slapped down several Ukrainian officials for meddling in our elections as a violation of the Ukrainian law. Now, I did not report those facts, and reputable journalists reported those facts. Does that mean that the Ukrainian leaders were more aggressive than Russia? No. Russia was very aggressive and they’re much more sophisticated, but the fact that Russia was so aggressive does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko actively worked for Secretary Clinton.

TODD: My goodness. Wait a minute. Senator Kennedy, you now have the president of Ukraine saying that he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. I mean come on. You realize that the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is Vladimir Putin. … You have just accused the former president of Ukraine — You have done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you have been duped?

KENNEDY: No. Just read the articles.

What to do about a senator who neglects his obligations to attend briefings, who perpetuates propaganda from an adversary and who deliberately misleads the public by conflating meddling/interference by an adversary and public criticism of a candidate?

What to do about the Kremlin’s propagandists

SOURCE .

Dec. 2, 2019 at 6:45 a.m. CST

Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-La.) once before walked back an assertion that maybe Ukraine was responsible for meddling in the 2016 election. That has not deterred him from repeating the Kremlin’s propaganda. Appearing on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, he was at it again.

When moderator Chuck Todd asked him if he was not simply doing Russia’s dirty work, Kennedy responded, “I think both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election. I think it’s been well documented in the Financial Times, in Politico, in the Economist, in the Washington Examiner, even on CBS, that the prime minister of Ukraine, the interior minister, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States, the head of the Ukrainian Anti-Corruption League, all meddled in the election on social media and otherwise.”

This is false, patently false. None of these outlets identified manipulation or interference in our election. Individual Ukrainians have publicly criticized President Trump, but Kennedy prefers to utter the Kremlin propaganda line. He acknowledged that he did not attend a briefing that Fiona Hill referenced “that actually this entire effort to frame Ukraine for the Russian meddling of 2016, of which you, you just made this case that they’ve done it, that actually this is an effort of Russia propaganda, that this is a Russian intelligence propaganda campaign in order to get people like you to say these things about Ukraine,” as Todd put it. An incredulous Todd soldiered on:

TODD: They’re trying to frame Ukraine. You apparently were briefed about this in the United States Senate by intelligence officials. Are you at all concerned you’re doing Russian intelligence work here?
KENNEDY: I was not briefed. . . .
I wasn’t briefed. Dr. Hill is entitled to her opinion. But when the Economist magazine —
TODD: When does opinion, when does opinion become fact? Does 17 intelligence services saying it, does every Western intelligence ally saying Russia did this? I’m just sort of confused, at what point is it no longer an opinion for you?
KENNEDY: I don’t think it’s an opinion. I think it’s a fact.

Kennedy persisted in naming publications that did not confirm his claim of Ukrainian “interference.” Todd tried yet again:

TODD: I mean, my goodness, wait a minute, Senator Kennedy, you now have the president of Ukraine saying he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. I mean, now come on. I mean, I got to put up — you realize the only other person selling this argument outside the United States is this man, Vladimir Putin. This is what he [PUTIN] said on November 20th: “Thank God nobody is accusing us anymore of interfering in U.S. elections. Now they’re accusing Ukraine. Well, let them sort this out among themselves.” You just accused a former president of Ukraine. You have done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you’ve been duped?
KENNEDY: No, because you — just read the articles. . . .
TODD: Do you think there’s a difference in a country criticizing a presidential candidate who essentially endorsed another country’s invasion and annexation of a part of their country as equivalent to what Russia did with the DNC?

At that point Kennedy switched topics — to falsely claim Trump was not allowed to invite witnesses in the House Judiciary Committee’s upcoming impeachment hearings. (An offer is outstanding.)

What to do about a senator who neglects his obligations to attend briefings, who perpetuates propaganda from an adversary of the United States and who deliberately misleads the public by conflating meddling/interference by an adversary and public criticism of a candidate?

This article will concern itself with the one, focused fact that Trump is a lunatic. Let us commence, shall we?

 

President Trump.

 

The man in charge of the world’s most powerful military is a deranged lunatic

Ryan Cooper

SOURCE .

President Trump is facing down an impeachment inquiry, and his former subordinates are starting to disobey his efforts to keep them from testifying. After a lifetime of total impunity for alleged crimes, sexual assaults, and business failures, Trump is just possibly facing a serious consequence.

So naturally, he chose to upset his own caucus by randomly ordering a withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria and green-lighting an invasion by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan — thus throwing Kurdish militias who have been loyal allies of U.S. troops for years, and took thousands of casualties fighting ISIS on America’s behalf, directly to the wolves. Thousands are fleeing, and hundreds have been killed. After the House of Representatives voted 354 to 60 to condemn the action, Vice President Pence announced Thursday he had negotiated a five-day ceasefire to allow Kurdish forces to withdraw — which was over a week too late and, as Rachel Maddow outlines, gave Erdogan exactly what he wanted.

It turns out having an incurious, vicious dolt whose mind is clearly fading by the minute in charge of the world’s largest military is not so good.

It is hard to put into words just how weird and unsettling it is watching this oaf blunder his way around world politics. In some ways, it’s like being ruled by an abusive father. Every time something happens — like the unfortunate recent passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) — people are on tenterhooks wondering what horrible poison Trump is going to tweet. With such a cruel and graceless person, you can never be sure what is going to set him off, or who is going to be shoved down the metaphorical stairs. (This time it wasn’t so bad, luckily.)

But in other ways, it’s worse than that. The Syrian withdrawal was so abrupt and unplanned that U.S. troops couldn’t even dismantle their bases. In at least one case they ended up bombing their own weapons depot so it didn’t end up in the hands of Turkey — or worse, like the hundreds of ISIS prisoners who escaped from confinement, or were set loose by Turkey-backed forces. Russian state TV is running gleeful segments exploring all the expensive stuff and personal items that got left behind…

abandoning the Kurds like this might just be the most purely loopy foreign policy act an American president has ever done. The U.S. has spent tens of billions of dollars since 2014 fighting ISIS, propping up both the Kurds on one side and the Iraqi military on the other. The whole U.S. position in the region has been oriented around this goal. Now not only are we giving up on that entire project, seemingly because Trump had a short conversation with a quasi-dictator, we didn’t even give our former allies — who are incidentally about the most sympathetic group in the entire region — a few days’ warning.

One can criticize President Obama’s war on ISIS, but instantly pulling up stakes like this is far from some responsible wind-down of an overextended U.S. military. It is a stark demonstration that the United States’ decisions have become impossible to predict because its president is an irrational maniac.

‘No idea too lunatic’: how Trump’s shock troops attack US democracy

SOURCE .

Donald Trump once declared: “I alone can fix it.” He never made the claim: “I alone can break it.” When it comes to softening up institutions, eroding norms and chipping away at the foundations of democracy, it takes a village (IDIOT).

While the president has led the way in stirring outrage, he is aided and abetted by an entire ecosystem of activists, officials, politicians, pundits and social media stars. Far from being a lone voice screaming into the void, Trump can be confident that every baseless conspiracy theory he generates will be echoed, endorsed and enlarged – whatever the cost to the rule of law.

“There’s no idea too lunatic or extreme that Trump cannot find someone to amplify them for him,” said Charlie Sykes, a conservative broadcaster and journalist. “This is the new political normal. It’s no wonder that Trump is not deterred from saying crazy things, because he knows there will always be someone willing to go out there and repeat them.”

A case in point is the fallout from the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump has spent two years throwing out words like “coup”, “deep state”, “hoax”, “treason” and “witch-hunt” with unnerving insouciance. When Mueller’s report emerged last month, Trump falsely claimed it totally cleared him of collusion and obstructing justice. There duly came a chorus of support, from Republicans in Congress to the extreme fringes of the web.

Emboldened, Trump is going further. He alleges without evidence that the FBI committed treason, spied on his election campaign and tried to rob him of victory. Last week, he gave the attorney general, William Barr, authority to declassify information about the origins of the investigation. Again, there is enthusiastic backing from cheerleaders who holler “investigate the investigators” and suggest that Barack Obama, not Trump, should be on trial.

====================

Trump is melting down. Again.

SOURCE .

August 19, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. CDT

Uh-oh. President Trump is in such a state of panic about his dimming reelection prospects that he’s getting his lies mixed up and occasionally blurting out the truth.

 

“It’s tough for Apple to pay tariffs if it’s competing with a very good company [Samsung] that’s not,” the president told reporters Sunday — flatly contradicting the ridiculous and utterly false narrative that he has spent months trying to sell. Trump apparently forgot his standard lie that China is somehow paying “billions of dollars” in tariffs, acknowledging instead that they are taxes paid by U.S. companies and, ultimately, the American consumer.

This reflects more than just the difficulty of juggling multiple lies. Evidence suggests that Trump is melting down. Again.

And for good reason.

Fears of a global recession, greatly exacerbated by Trump’s erratic and self-destructive trade policies, have sent financial markets tumbling. A sharp downturn would close off one of the principal lines of attack the president was hoping to use against his Democratic opponent. He tried it out at a rally in New Hampshire last week: “You have no choice but to vote for me,” he told the crowd, “because your 401(k)’s down the tubes, everything’s gonna be down the tubes” if he loses. “So whether you love me or hate me, you gotta vote for me.”

Fact check: No.

Trump is flailing. He berates his handpicked chairman of the Federal Reserve, Jerome H. Powell, for not cutting interest rates fast enough to goose the economy. He practically begs Chinese President Xi Jinping for a meeting to work out a trade deal — any trade deal, apparently — and is met with silence. He threatens more tariffs but then backs down, at least for now. According to published reports, he sees himself as the victim of a conspiracy to exaggerate the growing economic anxiety in order to hurt his chances of winning a second term.

He entertains grandiose, almost Napoleonic fantasies purchasing Greenland from Denmark in what he calls “a large real estate deal,” perhaps, or imposing a naval blockade to force regime change in Venezuela. He apparently spent much of this past weekend fuming about not getting credit for how his New Hampshire rally broke an attendance record for the arena that had been set by Elton John.

And Trump can’t seem to stop railing against a recent Fox News poll that showed him losing to four of the leading Democratic contenders. The president seems to consider Fox News his administration’s Ministry of Propaganda — indeed, that is the role the network’s morning-show hosts and prime-time anchors loyally play — but the polling unit is a professional operation. “There’s something going on at Fox, I’ll tell you right now. And I’m not happy with it,” Trump told reporters Sunday . He added a threat, saying that Fox “is making a big mistake” because he is “the one that calls the shots” on next year’s general election debates — the implication being that Fox News might not get to broadcast one of them if it doesn’t toe the party line.

 

For the record, Trump’s claim about his political standing is that it couldn’t be better — but could be better.

“Great cohesion inside the Republican Party, the best I have ever seen,” he tweeted Monday. “Despite all of the Fake News, my Poll Numbers are great. New internal polls show them to be the strongest we’ve had so far! Think what they’d be if I got fair media coverage!”

An hour later, he was back on Twitter to attack Anthony Scaramucci, who famously spent 11 days as White House communications director and recently became the latest Trump supporter to hit the “eject” button. Predictably, Trump called him a “nut job,” claimed to barely know him and dusted off the ultimate insult, calling him “bad on TV.”

 

The astonishing thing is that the president of the United States is, let’s face it, raving like a lunatic — and everyone just shrugs.

===============

TRUMP INSISTS HE’S SMART ENOUGH TO COMMIT CRIMES

“If I wanted to do quid pro quo, I would’ve done the damn quid pro quo.”

Last Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal editorial board ran a unique defense of Donald Trump in which it contorted itself to argue that while the president may have “wanted a quid-pro-quo policy ultimatum toward Ukraine,” people should consider the possibility that he “was too inept to execute it.” Most individuals facing impeachment would be grateful for this ridiculous theory, especially considering the evidence thus far suggests that Trump did demand a quid pro quo from Ukraine for nearly $400 million in military aid, a fact acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney just came out and admitted to the press before trying to walk it back after realizing how bad it sounded.

But Donald Trump isn’t most individuals. Instead, he’s an abnormally sensitive lunatic who flies off the handle at the slightest provocation, real or imagined, and would rather people think he’s “like, [a] really smart” criminal than dumb and innocent. And we know this because apparently Trump saw the editorial and insisted as much.

A source familiar with his reaction to the editorial told the Daily Beast: “[The president] mentioned he had seen it and then he started saying things like, ‘What are they talking about, if I wanted to do quid pro quo, I would’ve done the damn quid pro quo,’ and…then defended his intelligence and then talked about how ‘perfect’ the call [with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky] was.” Another person familiar with the matter confirmed the account. “He was clearly unhappy,” the first source said. “He did not like the word ‘inept.’”

While sad and pathetic, the story is not hard to believe. Trump has, of course, famously referred to himself as a “very stable genius,” challenged his former secretary of state to an I.Q. test, and claimed to posses “great and unmatched wisdom.” In March 2016, he said he doesn’t need to consult with experts on foreign policy because he relies on himself and his “very good brain.” On one occasion, when asked by a critic to prove his allegedly off-the-charts I.Q., he responded that it was “the highest, a$$hole!” On another, he literally tweeted, “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.” So yeah, this anecdote checks out.

TRUMP on Sondland, his current ambassador to EU and $1 million donor to his inaugural: “I hardly know him.”

“She wouldn’t hang my picture in the embassy … it took like a year & a half or 2 years for her to get the picture up … this was not an angel, ok?” — Trump says one of his big beefs with Ambassador Yovanovitch was that she wasn’t eager to hang up his portrait

[ME: WHO, BESIDES TRUMPSTER, WOULD WANT HIS PIC UP??]

Trump’s ramblings on how many “stars” he’s made over the years are completely off the rails

[ME: WHO CARES?!!]

Trump on Adam Schiff: “I want to put that guy with his, uh, with his — way. I almost said something that might’ve been slightly controversial.”

[ME: LIKE THIS HOUR LONG DIATRIBE IS “SANE”- EXCEPT FOR THIS PART HERE!!!]

Trump on Hong Kong protests: “We have to stand with Hong King, but I’m also standing with President Xi. He’s a friend of mine, he’s an incredible guy. We have to stand … if it weren’t for me, thousands of people would have been killed in Hong Kong right now.”

[ME: MEGLAMANIACAL MUCH, TRUMPY??]

Trump claims that if he hadn’t fired Comey, “I would have been in some trouble right now, because they were coming after me … turned out to be the best move I ever made — firing Comey. Because they were looking to take down the president.”

Sounds like obstruction!

[ME: IT IS OBSTRUCTION!!]

“Are you sure?” Trump’s effort to exonerate Russia for interfering in the election on his behalf was a bit much even for Fox & Friends

Are you sure?” Trump’s Ukraine conspiracy theory was a bit much even for Fox & Friends

Trump pushed a debunked conspiracy mere hours after Fiona Hill described it as Russian disinformation.

We should stop calling CrowdStrike a conspiracy theory and start calling it a Russia propaganda fabrication.

There’s no theory to it.

Trump is a raving lunatic. An egomaniac. A narcissist. A pathological liar. 

And this maniac is in charge of the largest nuclear arsenal on earth!!! 

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

What The Bible Says About Trump

SIMPLY SCRIPTURE AND DIRECT, IN CONTEXT COMMENTARY: GOD’S WORD ON TRUMP.

TRUMP HAS DONE, IS DOING, AND IS THE ABOVE. ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE EITHER KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT TRUMP, OR IS A LIAR.

THIS APPLIES TO THE TRUMP SUPPORTER MOST OF ALL. ANYONE WHO DEFENDS AND SUPPORTS TRUMP, AND SAYS HE IS GOOD IS ABHORRED.

ALL THE EVANGELICAL LEADERS AND PROSPERITY HERETICS WHO PROSTRATE BEFORE TRUMP AND COVER FOR HIM…THIS IS YOU. TRUMP IS WICKED.

THIS IS Trump and ALL of his defenders. Lie. Name call. Slander. Malign. Libel. Curse…and then say they didn’t mean it, or didn’t mean it “that way”.

Again, THIS IS TRUMP. Dissembleth means: TO LIE, TO DISGUISE YOUR REAL INTENT WITH FEIGNED WORDS.

ONLY those WILLFULLY blind and deaf do not see that this IS Trump.

Trump is PART of God’s JUDGMENT on America’s sins.

I am contending against the EVIL of not only Trump, but of ALL Liberalism. I will NOT forsake The Law of God to praise a very unworthy man.

How can anyone, especially a Christian, read The Holy Scriptures and NOT see that THIS IS Trump?!!

Proverbs 28:15-16

15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.

16 The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.

THAT IS Trump. Clearly.

=================================

CLEARLY THE LATTER IS TRUMP.

THIS SCREAMS “TRUMP”!

TRUMP. PERIOD.

TRUMP IS THE LATTER PART OF THIS SCRIPTURE, THE WICKED.

TRUMP, THE GIFT RECEIVER/OVERTHROWER.

To WILLINGLY ASSOCIATE and BEFRIEND the Wicked IS to BE wicked. That IS Trump and his Defenders.

Trump & Associates.

Trump supporters, are YOU listening??

Trump IS an abomination to The JUST. If he’s NOT an abomination to YOU…then you are NOT just.

====================================

Daniel 11:36-39 King James Version (KJV)

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

That speaks of The Anti-Christ, but Scripture speaks of “many antichrists” as forerunners to THE Anti-Christ.

1 John 2:18 King James Version (KJV)

18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

===========================

2 Thessalonians 2:2-12 King James Version (KJV)

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

What Christian, KNOWING The Scripture can read ALL this and deny that this firmly, clearly, and directly speaks of Trump and his defenders and followers?!!

================================================

Romans 1:18-32 King James Version (KJV)

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

THIS DIRECTLY APPLIES TO TRUMP AND HIS DEFENDERS.

==================

Galatians 5:16-25 King James Version (KJV)

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

====================================

2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 King James Version (KJV)

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

AND, LASTLY…

Christian, you can NO longer defend, support, or walk with Trump in ignorance. If you walk with him any further it is because you’ve chose to follow a wicked, dishonorable, vile man. And that means YOU ARE IN AGREEMENT WITH HIM.

“It’s Over” Says TrumPutin.

Trump says ‘it’s all over’ for impeachment inquiry after Sondland testimony

SOURCE .

NOTE: The source is Fox “News” …so the REAL reporting is buried 6 paragraphs in, but then runs for 6 paragraphs.

HERE is the truth, NOT Trumpy “McLiar” is claiming:

While Trump argued that Sondland’s statement proves there was no quid pro quo between his administration and Ukraine — the matter at the heart of the impeachment probe — Sondland gave a more nuanced account.

He confirmed he never heard directly from Trump on a quid pro quo linking military aid for Ukraine to politically advantageous investigations.

But Sondland said “we all understood” that a meeting at the White House for Ukraine’s president and a phone call with Trump would happen only if President Volodymyr Zelensky agreed to an investigation into the 2016 U.S. election and the Bidens. And he said he came to presume aid was linked to investigations too.

He said he sent an email on July 19, just days before the July 25 call at the center of the impeachment inquiry, where he laid out the issue in detail to members of the State and Energy departments and White House staff.

Sondland added: “It was no secret.”

Sondland testified later that he worked with Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Ukraine at Trump’s “express direction” and pushed a “quid pro quo” with Kiev because it was what Trump wanted…

Sondland “pointing a finger directly at Trump,” he said this: “I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’ As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes. Mr. Giuliani conveyed to Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker, and others that President Trump wanted a public statement from President Zelensky committing to investigations of Burisma and the 2016 election. Mr. Giuliani expressed those requests directly to the Ukrainians. Mr. Giuliani also expressed those requests directly to us. We all understood that these prerequisites for the White House call and White House meeting reflected President Trump’s desires and requirements.”…

…”Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker, and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States. We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders.”…

…”In July and August 2019, we learned that the White House had also suspended security aid to Ukraine. I was adamantly opposed to any suspension of aid, as the Ukrainians needed those funds to fight against Russian aggression. I tried diligently to ask why the aid was suspended, but I never received a clear answer. In the absence of any credible explanation for the suspension of aid, I later came to believe that the resumption of security aid would not occur until there was a public statement from Ukraine committing to the investigations of the 2016 election and Burisma, as Mr. Giuliani had demanded.”

MORE SOURCING .

Ooops!

The TRUTH, per usual, is quite different than what Donnie “Little Hands” TrumPutin claims.

========================

Lead attorney for the Clinton impeachment, Ken Starr, weighed in:

In speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, the head prosecutor in Bill Clinton’s impeachment hearings said Sondland’s testimony “doesn’t look good for the president, substantively.” Starr continued, “It’s over … The articles of impeachment are being drawn up, if they haven’t already been drawn up. … This obviously has been one of those bombshell days,” said Starr, who added that Democrats will claim Trump “committed the crime of bribery.”

“YEAH, BUT DIDN’T TRUMP’S AND THE REPUBLICAN’S STAR WITNESS HELP TRUMP’S CASE??”

WELL, READ FOR YOURSELF:

SOURCE .

How Republicans’ star impeachment witness turned on them

 

*He acknowledged that he lacked a full understanding of the fact that many people involved in the Trump administration’s push for an investigation into an Ukrainian natural gas company on whose board Joe Biden’s son, Hunter sat, viewed that pressure campaign as synonymous with a call to investigate the Bidens.
“I now understand that others saw the idea of investigating possible corruption involving the Ukrainian company, ‘Burisma’ as equivalent to investigating former Vice President Biden,” said Volker. “I saw them as very different. The former being appropriate and unremarkable, the latter being unacceptable.”
*Volker initially said that investigations into Trump’s conspiracy theories and the release of almost $400 million in military aid for Ukraine were not mentioned in a July 10 meeting at the White House. But on Tuesday, Volker said he now knows that the investigations were mentioned.
*Volker said in his October testimony that any conversations with the Ukrainians about making an announcement on the opening of an investigation into the Bidens had ended in August. But on Tuesday, Volker acknowledged that US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland had told a top Ukrainian official on September 1 that he believed the military aid was tied to the announcement of an investigation.
Those are big changes, with big implications.
No longer is Volker claiming — as he did in his original testimony — that there were no efforts on the part of the Americans to force the Ukrainians to announce an investigation had ended in August, long before the September 11 decision was made to release the hold on nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine.
No longer is Volker claiming that the idea of investigations — into the Bidens and into a debunked conspiracy theory that Ukraine somehow had meddled in the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton and might be in possession of the hacked Democratic National Committee server — never came up in a White House meeting two weeks before the July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
No longer is Volker claiming that no one thought the push by some members of the Trump administration to investigate Burisma had anything to do with investigating a potential 2020 presidential challenger to Trump.
And then there was what Volker had to say about Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani — and his negative impact on Trump’s view of Ukraine. As Volker said Tuesday:
“It was clear to me that despite the positive news and recommendations being conveyed by this official delegation about the new President, President Trump had a deeply rooted negative view on Ukraine rooted in the past. He was clearly receiving other information from other sources, including Mayor Giuliani, that was more negative, causing him to retain this negative view.”
Which, again, wow.

======================

Donnie “Little Hands” TrumPutin, his “associates”, and sycophant supporters all whine that “the deck is stacked against” poor widdle Trumpy-poo…well, he has been given an open invitation to join the hearings and given a personal account of himself.

SOURCE .

Pelosi to Trump: You’re Invited

Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer invite the president to stand up for himself
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to testify in front of investigators in the House impeachment inquiry ahead of a week that will see several key witnesses appear publicly, the AP reports.
Pushing back against accusations from the president that the process has been stacked against him, Pelosi said Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses. “If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ Face the Nation. Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants,” she said. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer echoed that suggestion.
=====================

So, um, why wont TrumPutin go, swear an oath to tell THE TRUTH about all this and clear things up?

There are two reasons TrumPutin can’t/wont testify under oath:

  1.  TRUMP IS SUCH A RAMBLING LIAR NONE OF HIS ADVISORS OR ASSOCIATES WILL LET HIM TESTIFY,
  2. TRUMP IS TERRIFIED OF THE TRUTH COMING OUT BECAUSE IT PROVES HIM GUILTY.

ONLY those with their head firmly buried up their own, or TrumPutin’s butt believe Trumpy is honest, innocent, and sane.

So as I close…IF TrumPutin’s/GOP’S “star witness” and EVERYONE ELSE associated with Trumpster and Pence say they are guilty…well, does it really matter what Donnie “Little Hands” TrumPutin says?
