This is what happens when you have the biggest liar in U.S. as your leader. No one can trust him or us anymore. #BLOTUS is destabilizing the entire world while he flaunts his immorality and ignores the Constitution and all it stands for.

before and after (part 2)…

Here is another small illustration of the difference a year makes. The world’s confidence of our nation’s leadership and our doing the right thing just continues to plummet as the world realizes we now have a lying, egotistical clown in our highest position of power.

Who do we trust for our safety?

The Scripture tells us that our safety does not come from military power. The Old Testament is full of the prophets telling the people not to trust the weapons of war to protect them. There’s a clear message that hoping to find security through the military is a dangerous and  false hope.

The Bible tells the people of faith that “our hope is in the name of our Lord, who made both heaven and earth.”  It’s a message we desperately need to hear and to heed today.

We have the largest military budget the world has ever seen. No other country, no other 12 countries, spend as much on national defense as the United States. This is not just wrong. In a world where we have 20,000 of our human family dying daily from hunger and malnutrition, spending this amount on military defense is both abhorrent and morally repugnant.

We can end hunger in the next 15 years according to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. But we will never do it wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on wasteful, unnecessary, and sinful military spending. It’s time to trust in the Lord.

ignorance is not a virtue

Ignorance is not, and has never been, a virtue. Neither is lying. This is what is so disconcerting about the approval and election of #BLOTUS to the highest office of our nation.

The almost incomprehensible ignorance and the continuous torrent of unabashed lies of #BLOTUS boggles the mind and turns the stomach. I remember when the President of the United States could be both trusted and respected. It’s only been a month, but already seems like a different age.

“in God we trust” (wrong)

Our true values are diametrically opposed to the values taught by Jesus the Christ and the precepts and teachings of the Bible. Our values are wealth, power, greed and selfishness.; none of which Jesus taught or practiced.

Faithfulness means a lot of different things to different people. But lets not confuse the misplaced values of our immoral society with the practice of loving everyone we meet even more than we love ourselves.
