Un-Christianity Today

20 12 2019

 

Franklin-Graham-640x480Last night I read the editorial from Christianity Today magazine. It was a rehash of Democrat talking points cleverly couched in religious and moral superiority. Name-dropping Billy Graham backfired immediately with Franklin Graham’s denunciation of the article, and revelation that Billy Graham voted for Trump, knew him personally and “He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.”

The Bible exposes the self-righteousness of the editorial. Only when one feels morally superior does he forget this fundamental truth. No man knows another man’s heart:

“Judge not, that you be not judged.For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:1-5

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 2:11

President Trump will ultimately be judged on the fruit of his actions, not his words. Of course he offends many with his words, but what does he actually do, not in the past, but in his presidency? I maintain that his policy accomplishments have done more for Biblical standards in our nation than any President since Reagan. Whether it is from his heart or political expediency is not for me to judge or even know. But I do know that when I go into that voting booth in 2020 my vote is for the candidates who stand for pro-life, pro-Israel, pro-family, pro-America (not a globalist), pro legal immigration (not open borders), pro-school choice, pro-jobs and pro-minorities. Is President Trump a flawed human being? Of course! Show me one person without sin (other than Jesus) and I will hand you the stones. Compare the platforms of the parties and vote for the party which most closely lines up with the Bible. No contest.

I agree with Billy (and Franklin) Graham. Donald Trump (like Cyrus of old) is God’s man for this hour in America.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for the seasonal rains.

Israel & U.S. Prayer Call

30 05 2019

Pray for President

Israel is going into unprecedented new elections this September, for failure to form a governing coalition. In America, calls for impeachment are rapidly increasing. We join with Franklin Graham’s call for prayer and include Israel in our petition before Yehovah. Both President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are under spiritual attack as I have been saying for months now by the evil spirit of Haman (see here).

Here is Franklin Graham’s call to national prayer:

Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump.

President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.

This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.

We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”               1 Timothy 2:2–3

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
