the Golden Pig

No photo description available.

I find it frightening that there are far too many who see Trump as a savior. Since the Liar-in-Chief demonstrates his blatant opposition to Christ with every vindictive breath, every statement and every action, this is beyond sad. Dangerous is the word that comes to mind.

Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham support this lying, greedy, racist, adulterer with the full knowledge of who and what he is. They don’t care. White, Right-wing Evangelicals adore him because #BLOTUS has “blessed” their own bigotry, fear and hatred.

The bottom line is one can worship anyone or anything they desire. But…I do not think that anyone can worship Jesus as Lord and also worship the “golden pig.” The two are mutually exclusive.

 

Pence’s piety paradox

The Piety Paradox: America is simultaneously the most professedly Christian of the developed nations and the least Christian in its behavior. http://www.marioninstitute.org/node/230 God's Political Party: The Ten Commandments of our Party of God. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/540924605219994639/ “The fruits of Christianity were religious wars, butcheries, crusades, inquisitions, extermination of the natives in America, and the introduction of African slaves in their place” - Arthur Schopenhauer

Actions speak far louder than words. And the reality is that no amount of lying can cover up the lack of love, caring and compassion that is missing from this man’s life. Christianity is not a cloak of respectability to be worn to cover immoral actions.

the great divide

What a wonderful illustration of the great divide. This delightful cartoon tells the story of one of my favorite quotes.

“The distance between us and the poor is the distance between us and God.” 

A church that is happy and taking its ease during these times is a church that doesn’t comprehend the love of God, or the gospel of Jesus Christ. And any Christian leader that isn’t outraged at our government’s treatment of the poor and marginalized needs to wake up and pay attention.
