A Word to Christians About the Election

America, we made a mistake by electing the current occupant of the White House. By staying home to avoid voting for John McCain and/or Mitt Romney, we empowered and allowed the abomination of this administration to flourish.

The damage has been so great that America is now one president away from a complete transformation to secularism, a loss of our Judeo-Christian foundation, the loss of our position as the stabilizing force for good in the earth, and the leading voice of the gospel to all the world. If elected, Hillary Clinton will be the president who finishes the job. She stands almost entirely against everything we, the church, are for, and for everything we are against. Hillary is pro-abortion, including partial-birth abortion, the most insidious evil of the last century; will raise taxes while continuing out-of-control spending; will further weaken our military; is for completely open borders; is pro-gay marriage; supports Obamacare; has no respect for our Judeo-Christian heritage; sells influence; and is a proven liar. Do not be fooled—she will completely finish what Obama started.

The notion peddled by some "Never Trump" Republicans that they can keep Hillary from accomplishing what she wants for 4 years, then replace her with someone they prefer, is laughable. The fact that they should know this, and don't, is truly scary. Even more frightening is...perhaps they do. The Republican Congress has done nothing to stop Obama; why should we believe they will do so with Hillary?

A Republican controlled Congress has done nothing to defund Obamacare, slow down the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt he has accrued, prevent his treasonous acts with Iran, defund Planned Parenthood and their selling of babies' body parts (can you even believe such a thing even exists, and that the Obama’s and Hillary condone it?!), or stop any number of other inappropriate actions and wasteful expenditures. Much of Washington, DC is an out-of-control cancer that must be cut out.

To be sure, there are Republican leaders who desperately want to change things but the entrenched, lobbyist-owned, career politicians–many of them liberals in conservative clothing–have neither the will, backbone, and perhaps not the intellect needed to change it. Radical surgery is necessary. Again, it is laughable to think that the leadership of this weak and diluted Republican Congress would be able or willing to stop the agenda of the libs once they enjoy an even greater momentum from another White House win. Someone please tell me why we should believe that. If the Republican Party has not sold us out, why did they spend $18.2 million on Bush's election in 2004, $53.5 million for McCain in 2008, $42.4 million for Romney in 2012, and $0 on ads to elect Trump?! They have sold us out.

I also want to make an appeal to those who say their conscience won't allow them to vote for either Trump or Clinton, so they simply won't vote at all. I sincerely respect your convictions, but in this election, that argument fails the logic test (as does voting for someone who cannot possibly win). Trump’s potential negative developments do not come close to the magnitude of those Hillary would produce. We simply cannot—regardless of our concerns regarding Trump—allow all the above-mentioned consequences to happen.

There is no option, in my opinion. We must vote for Donald J. Trump, as the only alternative to the complete and utter destruction of our way of life.

I am sure there are those who will say that I'm an alarmist, and over-dramatizing the circumstances we face.

To those who would say that, I can say only this: to see how Trump would actually lead, I would challenge you to look at those with whom he has surrounded himself: Pence; Carson; Huckabee; Giuliani; Christie; Gingrich; Palin; trusted generals; law enforcement officials; border patrol officials; evangelical leaders of all races; and otherwise, ethical, conservative leaders. What does this tell us? It is probably the greatest indicator of who Trump now is, clearly making the case that he has changed his moral ways over the past 10 years, as he claims. I personally believe he has changed. I also believe God has gripped his heart for the nation, and is in the process of further transforming Mr. Trump. God has certainly allowed him to be humbled.

Do NOT fall for the propaganda. Do NOT be mislead - we have one chance to turn this around. And now is that time.

Hear, hear! This says what many are thinking. If only people would listen!

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, Ed & Marianne. And yes, I put it on FB, too.

In 2008 only 63% of Christians voted at all and a disturbing number of them voted for Obama. Both Ralph and I believe in Donald Trump. He is brash, loud and opinionated, he speaks his mind and he is the first man in the political scene in a very, very long time who says what needs to be said. He is smart enough to get the right kind of people around him to run this country. He understand debt and how it is dragging us down.
We still have trouble grasping the fact Hillary actually is running to begin with. The lies she has been caught in, the collusion and manipulation that has been done in her campaign and the graft and double dealing of the "Clinton Foundation" is beyond belief. Yet here it is....two weeks to the election, more documented misbehavior and she is still leading. One poll stated that people identified her as more Christian than Trump. She strongly supports Abortion.

Voters need to look hard at the future of another 4 years of the Obama agenda plus the addition of Clinton greed.

Be safe and God Bless.

Rev. Paul said...

Exactly, Fiona. Thanks.

I haven't prayed this hard in my entire life.

Not so much for myself, but my son, my stepson and his wife and coming baby, and all the others who will still be here after I pass on.

If The Hildebeast "wins" (or likely they steal this election) then I firmly believe the USA, as we knew it, is gone forever.....

Rev. Paul said...

Jim, I agree on every point. Sad, but I've arrived at the same conclusion.

This is what the Never Trump people are too bull headed to understand.

I shared this on my fb page, and oddly, the Tardis came up as the associated graphic. I have no idea why, but maybe a few more people will read because of it.

Be safe and God bless you all.

Amen Paul.
I wish my writing skills were 1/10th as good as yours.
Would it be possible, to share your well written thoughts with others?

Take care, be safe.
God bless

Rev. Paul said...

Linda, thank you. Re: the TARDIS, it's pulling an image from my sidebar. Other blogs do the same thing on FB, when I link to them. FB used to display all the graphics from the linked site, and allow me to scroll them - or use none at all. No longer.

PH - thank you.

Griz - thank you for your kind words; I believe when an article like this one comes along, it's more divine inspiration, and less me. But yes, please feel free to share.

Griz Alaska said...

Thank you Sir,
You have been given a divine gift.
And know how to properly use it, for sharing his word.

On a side note.
It is/has been a long hard fought fall campaign.
I am now officially out of Trump/Pence campaign signs and stickers, to hand out.

Rev. Paul said...

Griz, that's why I'm pleased to share the words I receive. They're not mine, nor merely for me, and it would be wrong to cling to them. :)

Re: the Trump/Spence materials, I'm not surprised. But I think the Dims & MSM will be, in another couple of weeks.
