While these are carnal issues you bring up it displays a shocking disconnect with reality. Have you paid any attention to the deficit under the leadership of the party you are extolling as righteous? Church houses are only affected because they crawled into bed with Satan by accepting the 501 3C tax free status. I understand that there are forces in the world that do not care about the plight of people trying to escape poverty, starvation and crime but I do not expect the church to be leading the charge against such people. You need to go back and read your bible. As for state indoctrination it has been happening since the beginning of time. I am not saying the concerns are not real, just that your proposed solution is entirely carnal and relies upon wicked men, from one party or the other. The bible says to train your child up right, not elect politicians you think care.
"If politicians and their political parties, the media, Hollywood and academia can convince people on these issues, then they can convince them on anything else, including the rejection of the gospel. This is the reason many youth abandon Jesus and the church after they leave home and go to college." -- Bert Farias
No, now you sound like heretic Andy Stanley. The reason why kids go off to college and come back in revolt of religion is they were never saved to begin with. How could they be when they attend a church that does not preach the Gospel and feeds them pizza parties and veggie tales? The world is powerless regarding the efficacy of the Gospel. The bible says they love the darkness and sin, which is why they reject the light but kids of the apostate church have probably never heard the actual Gospel to begin with. Local church teachings on the love of God along with youth targeted heresies such as IHOP, Bethel, Jesus Culture and Hillsong combine to produce kids who we swear are saved but Jesus does not know them. The problem is not with the world behaving like the world Bert. It is with the church behaving like the world. It is a spiritual problem fought in the heavenlies and on our knees -- not resolved by another carnal politician who assures you he has your back.
"Did you know, based on the politics of Twitter, Facebook, Google and other liberal and Democrat-run organizations and companies, that it's "hate speech" if you say Islam is not a peaceful religion or homosexuality is a sin or transgenderism is wrong? But they are perfectly fine with banning Chick- Fil-A at airports or removing a monument cross or a nativity scene at a public place or just harassing Christians. Can you not see that voting for politicians with strong core moral values and truth and righteousness affects you personally, your family, children and grandchildren? But the change is gradual and so subtle, like the proverbial frog in boiling water. What one generation tolerates, the next generation celebrates. We are seeing it all around us. Politics and politicians continually make decisions that affect these issues. If you love God and you love people, you will be passionately interested in what values and principles are being legislated by our governmental leaders. This is politics, my friends. How can you say God does not care about politics?" -- Bert Farias
If I was to respond carnally I would state how much of a snowflake Farias sounds like at this point. Christians are not persecuted in this country Bert and it is an insult to those in the world that actually are to even infer it. Do you think Christ cares if a nativity scene is in the town square? He wasn't even born in December! Do you think he cares if a memorial cross is removed? What bible do you read? What politicians do you see with strong core moral values and truth and righteousness because the standard-bearer of the party you endorse is the guy that has lied over 10,000 times already in office and once bragged about grabbing women by the genitals. How can I say God does not care about politics? Because I have read the bible! Nowhere does He care about the carnal politics of man -- nowhere.
"As I examine things in the political realm since Donald Trump has become president, here is something I see. In recent attempts from the Democratic Party to unseat president Trump and run him out of office, I have noticed the dominant influence of the dirtiest politics I've ever witnessed in my lifetime and how the FBI, the attorney general and FISA court judges all fell under the sway of this extreme avarice for political power. We have sunk to new levels of "low" evil and the slimiest kind of wickedness and corruption when you add media power to magnify and propagate political power in order to destroy a sitting president. We have moved further and further away from the position of a party that offers to provide the best leadership to truly benefit the people into a political party that is willing to overthrow its own freedom to be in power. God help us!" -- Bert Farias
Bert, now you are just lying or woefully deceived. You need to turn off state sponsored television and think for yourself. You are making a pitch here for the Republican Party. Yet all of the FISA judges that approved the warrants in the case you are referencing were GOP appointed. The FBI leaders you are slandering were all Republicans. The Special Counsel is a Republican. These are not the points however. What is missing here of course is anything remotely biblical. These arguments are entirely carnal in nature. If you think Donald Trump is a great president you have that right. You do not however have the right or biblical backing, to claim he is the second coming of King Cyrus with an Elijah anointing, and a Deborah mantle. You do not have the right to use your standing as a minister to advocate for evil.
"We need to be praying and looking to the Lord for the best leadership for this country and stop thinking we can do this without Him. This is an early reminder to get engaged in the political process and let the Lord guide you in your vote in 2020. Look carefully at your candidate and make sure that what they stand for politically and personally is what best represents your values and the direction you want for the country." -- Bert Farias
