Why Is That?

November 27, 2016

If you are a Christian conservative, you might be asking the question, “Why Is That?” regarding the great divide that has happened during and after this contentious election of 2016. The liberal lunatic policies over the past 8 years under the 0bama BADministration has brain-dirtied many groups of people, especially many of the self-named  “coddled childish” Millennials. Those that “came of age” during that time most likely don’t even know about correct history because of the liberal leftist lies that have been drilled into their brains.

Why Is That?

Well, by the end of this post I’m going to make a simple, but hopefully accurate, attempt to answer that question.

Fellowship of the Minds reports: “Hillary Uses Jill Stein to Steal Election Via Voter Recounts in Battleground States.

Read it all at that link, but here is a pertinent excerpt:

Jill Stein made her intentions known on her Facebook page around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 23. By this afternoon (Nov. 26), Stein has raised more than $5.8 million, with the goal now upped to $7 million. See for yourself at Jill2016.

In other words, in just 3 days Stein raised $5.8 million, all by crowd funding! The same Jill Stein who was the only candidate on the November ballot to rely on public money — four federal payments totaling $456,000 under the Presidential Election Campaign Fund — for her own failed presidential campaign.

So who are these millions of Americans who are donating to Stein’s vote recount war chest?

As in robots. Machines. Not real people.

How do we know this?

Because the donations came in and are still coming in in REGULAR intervals — even at 3 a.m. when most Americans are asleep.

Two days ago, freelance journalist Jim Stone wrote:

“JILL STEIN’S ELECTION RECOUNT IS BEING PAID FOR BY A BOT! A bot is pulling cash from a central fund, and giving it out at a pre determined rate. Go to Jill Stein’s fundraiser page and watch the progress. You will see that her funding is coming in at a PERFECTLY CONSISTENT 160,000 an hour. I watched this yesterday and last night carefully, and noted that at night, when everyone is sleeping and right through the time when the whole world slows down, her donations for this came in like clockwork, with no deviation from the steady pace whatsoever. The only way that can happen is if a bot was set up to fake her getting donations from multiple people, and whoever set it up did not consider the fact that practically everything would come from America, and practically everyone is asleep at 3AM. LAST NIGHT IT SHOULD HAVE SLOWED DOWN. IT DID NOT. IT JUST MARCHED RIGHT TOWARD THE FINISH LIKE AN OBEDIENT SOLDIER. It went straight to 2.65 million by six AM. I can calculate: IT WILL GO TO 4.5 MILLION IN 28.125 HOURS. Oh, a few people will pitch in for real, so I’ll say 27 hours . . . . Yes folks, we are watching the election steal as it happens. They could not do it by threatening electors, so now we have this. And it is all based on false claims, because Michigan CANNOT BE HACKED. Michigan has a CERTIFIED [paper] VOTE. There is NO WAY THIS IS LEGIT. And that means ONE THING – there are liars doing it, powerful liars who know in advance they are going to find what they are looking for.”

Yesterday, the Wisconsin Elections Commission said it had received Stein’s petition for a recount.

What you can do:

(1) Spread the news by publicizing this post on social media and via email.

(2) Keep the recount honest by:

  • Volunteering for the recount. Sign up here.

  • Politely warning the election officials in the 3 battleground states that you’ll be watching:

My husband correctly stated that the two months prior to Trump being inaugurated will be very dangerous times.  I must agree with him because the satanic globalism billionaire goons and their minions will NEVER rest until they get their “power” back!

Why Is That?

Next, we have the truth about the death of a horrible dictator – Fidel Castro, yet pansies (like Colin Kaepernick) say the dumbest things!  Why?  He probably doesn’t  know (or, more likely refuses to acknowledge) the decades of suffering under Castro’s tyrannical communist rule!

Why Is That?

Kingsjester’s blog nails it with the truth, once again!

I could go on and on…but my savvy readers here know what’s going on and most of you are aware of the reasons for it.

While reading an article over at WND, I ran across some comments that explain why the globalists, often with differing agendas, unite together for the same cause.

Why Is That?

WND: Fight Over Gay Wedding Cake Given New Life

Now, this news report discusses a case in Northern Ireland. However, the same religious discrimination problems have come up here in the United States.

Excerpt:

The infamous Northern Ireland case penalizing a family baking company for refusing to promote “gay” marriage with a wedding cake may have a new life.

WND reported earlier when an appeals court in Belfast refused to offer relief from the penalties for Ashers Bakery in Northern Ireland for violating that nation’s nondiscrimination laws.

And it was reported that the owners were considering taking their fight to the European Court of Human Rights.

But now, according to the Belfast Telegraph, a door has opened.

Senior judges in Belfast say that a section of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 may give the McArther family, which owns Ashers Bakery, a path to the Supreme Court.

“You need to make a decision whether you wish to pursue it,” Judge Declan Morgan told lawyers for the family this week.

David Scoffield QC, for the McArthurs, told the court: “We are happy to look at that and confirm our submissions in writing.”

The Court of Appeal last month affirmed a fine for Ashers for discriminating against Gareth Lee by refusing to make a cake for a “gay” wedding.

The bakers said they didn’t care about, or even know about, his sexual choices, but the message was what their Christian faith would not allow them to promote.

Last year a Belfast County Court ruled the bakery discriminated against Lee on grounds of sexual orientation and religious belief or political opinion. The firm was also ordered to pay £500 compensation.

The family’s representatives explained the rejection of the cake order was solely because of the message that violated their faith – it had nothing to do with Lee himself.

John Larkin, Northern Ireland’s attorney general, backed the McArthurs. He said they should not be forced to endorse a message with which they disagree.

Officials with the Christian Institute, which took part in the fight on behalf of the family, have reported that Larkin also has the option of seeking higher court review, but that was on hold pending the family’s decision.

Simon Calvert, of the Institute, said the family’s representatives had asked the Court of Appeal whether there was any further appeal route available.

Why Is That?

You may be asking, what does each of these separate incidents have in common?

Well, I think that the following comment thread over at WND explains it quite well:

Tatiana Covington

And this is all about a cake?

nomark to Tatiana Covington

No.  It has nothing to do with a cake.  It has to do with freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the right of religious conscience.

aurora9

I had once seen a video on my computer of a gay person who wanted to order a cake, with a gay inscription, at a muslim bakery.  The owner had directed him to a different bakery but was not prosecuted for it.  There is nothing fair about globalism and they lean in favor of Islam, as many of us have already witnessed!

nomark to aurora9

The reason for this is Christianity threatens globalism because it puts God first, family second and the state third.  That undermines them.  The reason globalists not only “tolerate” Muslims but in fact encourage them, is the globalists see Islam kinder spirit and global government is using Islam to destroy Christianity.  The globalist adhere to the tenant “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” and so embrace Islam (for now).

Also you can see how they have tried to associate radical Islam with all religions.  It didn’t work, in fact it back-fired, but that was the plan.

Recall HiLIARy Clinton stating that

“And deep-seated cultural codes and religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”

 

Go listen to the video where you can listen and watch her state this!

I STILL thank God every day that she lost the election!

The question, “Why Is That?” has now been answered.

“The idea of the free man in God has always been terrifying to tyrants” – Billy Graham

November 17, 2016

“The idea of the free man in God has always been terrifying to tyrants, and that is why religious liberty is being curtailed in so many parts of the world today.  Give people the Bible and freedom to proclaim its message, and they will soon be free.” – Quote from Billy Graham speech, “Will America Survive” speech on New Years Eve, 1975.

America has been under the influence of political tyrants, especially over the last eight years under the Obama regime.  The fact that America voted against the tyrannical, socialist, pro-Islamic radicalism, immoral, deceiving, Christian-hating and liberty stealing agenda of the Democrats on November 8, 2016 shows that despite the overwhelming support by the media-of-mass-deception for Hillary Clinton, the public was not fooled.  Millions of Americans saw the awful truth about her via social media, online news sites and blogs (especially through Wikileaks and Project Veritas) , and made their decisions in the voting booth to be sure that the Clintons never attain any leadership position in the White House ever again!

One of the latest posts over at The Last Refuge blog shares a video and commentary about Hillary Clinton’s first public appearance since losing the election.

There are hundreds of comments there, but I wanted to focus on a few that I found quite telling.

First, I will share my reaction after viewing the video.

christinewjc says:

November 17, 2016 at 8:14 am

I watched the video hours ago, but if I recall correctly didn’t the woman who introduced Hillary claim that she has known her for 45 years? Does that mean that she only knows the public image (and obviously fake image) or does she also know all about the crime family side of the Clintons?
With all the evidence of corruption and deceit that was exposed by Wikileaks and Project Veritas, how could a woman who runs a children’s charity ever think that HilLIARy would be suitable as president?
Does anyone know whether or not the disgusting pedo island child abuse ring will ever be completely exposed and participants prosecuted? Is that investigation still ongoing?
How could any woman ever think that Hillary isn’t evil?
I continue to thank God each day that America was saved from the evil of the Clintons! I pray that they will now remain in the dustbin of history.

Then, there was this comment:

JoD says:

November 17, 2016 at 8:20 am

She might have just launched HER new campaign….
Beaten down and emotionally broken….Time for a Pardon!!
Please explain:
If she didn’t do ANYTHING wrong, why does she even need a pardon…hmmm?

My reply:

christinewjc says:

November 17, 2016 at 9:18 am

That is an excellent point JoD! Why did Jesse Jackson need to get behind a podium and say that 0bummer should pardon her…if she didn’t do anything wrong? Answer: They KNOW about all of her criminal activity (some of which has been exposed online but not all of it by the media of mass deception) and they are all probably scared that once Trump gets into office, she will be prosecuted.

Next this commenter makes a good point:

Phil aka Felipe says:

November 17, 2016 at 8:43 am

Children’s Defense Fund? She’s what the children needed a defense against. Thank God, He provided Trump to Defend The Children – from her!

My reply:

christinewjc says:

November 17, 2016 at 9:49 am

Agree totally with your comment! Anyone who supports partial birth abortion when a baby in the womb is pulled out of the mother’s body except for the head and then killed with scissors cutting at the back of the neck isn’t a “defender” of children!

Next, these comments stuck out in my mind as apropos for discussion here at Talk Wisdom.

North Wind says:

November 17, 2016 at 8:51 am

If Hill and Bill are connected to the pedophile ring uncovered in wikileaks, then this whole speechifying thing by Hillary is totally sick and twisted!!!

She may or not get her just desserts here on Earth, but I guarantee you, she’ll get them after death (only God knows a person’s heart, to be sure, but I can find no evidence that she belongs to Jesus).

Phil aka Felipe says:

November 17, 2016 at 9:42 am

“I can find no evidence that she belongs to Jesus”.
He is the good shepherd. His sheep hear His voice and He knows them and calls them by name and they know Him and follow Him.

The voice of another they will not follow because they are a stranger or a hireling or a thief or a robber. The thief comes to steal or to kill or destroy. Hirelings care not for the sheep. John chapter 10.

The fruit is evidence of who she follows and those that follow her indicate they are not His.

The FACT that Hillary Clinton’s hatred towards God was very evident when a woman at an event had to stumble over the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance and then ended up eliminating it from the Pledge that day, tells us where Hillary stands regarding God.

My reply to Phil aka Felipe:

November 17, 2016 at 10:04 am

So true Phil aka Felipe! Her hatred of Christians has been very evident for most of her life. She labeled us as being in a “basket of deplorables.” The term “deplorable” is an adjective, not a noun!

adjective
1.
causing or being a subject for grief or regret; lamentable:
the deplorable death of a friend.
2.
causing or being a subject for censure, reproach, or disapproval; wretched; very bad:
This room is in deplorable order. You have deplorable manners!

Word Origin and History for de-plor-a-ble
adj.
1610s; see deplore + -able. Perhaps from French déplorable or directly from Late Latin deplorabilis. Johnson (mid-18c.) noted the weakened colloquial use of the word for “very bad.” Related: Deplorably.

Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper

She is a deplorable person! Her attitude during her entire life has obviously rejected the saving power and grace of Jesus Christ our Lord. And, she hates those who are born again in Christ and follow Him.
She is part of “the world.”

Jesus warned and told us:

Jhn 15:18

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
Read all of John 15:18 – 25.*

There are those who will forever refuse the redemption offered by Christ. All we can do is continue to share the Gospel. Those who reject it, we have to be willing to “shake the dust from our sandals” and say, “so be it.”

Mat 13:40

“Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.

Mat 13:49

“So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,

Mat 13:50

“and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

 

Now that Donald Trump is our President-Elect and Mike Pence is our Vice-President Elect, we need to keep them and their families covered in prayer.  We need to pray for those chosen to be in his Cabinet and all who will be given positions in our federal government.  We need to pray that the Supreme Court justices chosen will uphold our U.S. Constitution (especially freedom of religion, freedom of speech, life, liberty, association, and the pursuit of happiness for all – even those babies in the womb) and make decisions accordingly.  Prayers for protection, prayers for them to keep their campaign promises to We The People, and prayers that their solutions to the problems here at home and around the world will be successful.

*Jhn 15:18

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.

Jhn 15:19

“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

Jhn 15:20

“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

Jhn 15:21

“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.

Jhn 15:22

“If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.

Jhn 15:23

“He who hates Me hates My Father also.

Jhn 15:24

“If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father.

Jhn 15:25

“But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’[fn]

Jhn 15:26

“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

Jhn 15:27

“And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.

What Matters Most on This Election Day, 2016?

November 8, 2016

One of my first thoughts upon awakening this morning was, “thank God this election season will soon be over!”  In a previous post, I included the following graphic:

It reads:  “Giant Meteor 2016.  Just End It Already.”

I thought it was funny and very apropos for how so many people are feeling after this long, crazy, and vitriolic campaign season!

Secondly, after lifting up prayer to Jesus I was given the thought, “what matters most on this election day?”

People are SO anxious, afraid, sleepless, grief-filled, concerned, and worried about who will win. I can’t say that I blame them, because there is a LOT at stake. The direction that our nation will go depending on who “wins” will be like night and day! There are many good reasons to be highly concerned because the candidates and their party platforms are polar opposites.

There is a battle going on in this nation, and it involves good vs. evil. There are mini battles going on too, especially in regards to Christians and their choice for president.

I now present just one example.

In the comment thread of a former post, a commenter seemed bothered by the fact that certain prominent Christians differ over whether or not to vote for Donald Trump.   It seemed to me that the commenter was pushing the idea onto me that James Dobson is correct to warn others against voting for Trump.

I wrote:

christinewjc Says:

James Dobson has his opinion, but so does another Christian believer, Joel C. Rosenberg.

GMpilot  replied:

GMpilot Says:

Let them fight it out, then. You’re not denying it. That alone is significant.
I’ve made my decision as, I suspect, have you.

My reply:

No need for them to “fight it out.” Both men are born-again Christians, so whether or not one or both are wrong about either candidate does not ultimately affect their salvation. THAT is what is significant, not your opinion or feigned consternation about their voting choice.

We are all sinners. There are none righteous – no not one. We are saved by grace through faith through the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. His resurrection to life proves who He is and we can rest in His promises.

Elections come and go. Presidents are elected, then after 4 or 8 years, leave office.

This Billy Graham quote applies more now than when he first said it back on New Year’s Eve, 1975:

I believe that every problem facing us as Americans is basically a spiritual problem. Crime is a spiritual problem. Inflation is a spiritual problem. Corruption is a spiritual problem. Social injustice is a spiritual problem. The lack of will even to defend our freedoms is a spiritual problem.

The damage done by those in positions of power who do not adhere to the commandments of God are egregious and damaging to our people, the nation, and the world.

However, God is still on His throne in heaven and we know where all of this is going.

The good is always there.

The bad and the ugly are in existence for a time, but one day, evil will be swept away.

Galatians (see Galatians 5:16-5:21 below)* tells us how damaging the “lusts of the flesh” are to our souls.  We are told in many places within Scripture of this fact, and it is why Christians, through the power of the Holy Spirit indwelling us, can endure the longsuffering (see Galatians 5:22-5:25 below)** going on in this world.

Why?

Because it isn’t our final home.  We are told in many places within Scripture of this. Many of the most significant Bible verses are those stated by  Jesus, Himself.

Jhn 16:33

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[fn] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Jhn 14:2

“In My Father’s house are many mansions;[fn] if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[fn]

Jhn 14:3

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

What this means most of all (e.g. “He has overcome the world”) is that His ultimate plans will not be thwarted; even though the evil ones think they can oppose God’s ultimate purposes.

Despite the evil intent of the God haters, they are (unbeknownst to them) being used to achieve more believers in Christ!

The Gospel continues on, being preached throughout the earth and Christian believers will ultimately be with Jesus in eternity. What goes on here on this earth is insignificant compared to where each of us will spend eternity. Even more important is Who we will be with! Jesus Christ!

Yes, GMpilot. I have made my decision and you have made yours. And, I’m not talking about this particular election.

*******

*Galatians 5:16-5:17

Gal 5:16

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Gal 5:17

For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

Gal 5:18

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Gal 5:19

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[fn] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

Gal 5:20

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,

Gal 5:21

envy, murders,[fn] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

**Galatians 5:22-25

Gal 5:22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Gal 5:23

gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Gal 5:24

And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Gal 5:25

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Breaking! Counter-Coup ‘To Stop Hillary’!

November 2, 2016

Wow!!!  The following video is going viral and can also be found on The Drudge Report under the headline, “Gov’t Insiders Helping Assange!”

I watched this video last night and I have to admit that I slept more peacefully!

For additional information and analysis,  see:

Barry Soetoro’s Channel Video: Breaking! Counter-Coup ‘To Stop Hillary’ Announced By US Intel Agents!

Excerpt:

Published on Nov 1, 2016

(BREAKING) STEVE PIECZENIK ANNOUNCES ‘COUNTER-COUP’ BY U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY TO BLOCK HILLARY CLINTON FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

THIS COUNTER-COUP HAS TWO MAIN AREAS OF ATTACK — IT WAS ANNOUNCED NOVEMBER 1ST (ONE WEEK BEFORE ELECTION 2016).

HILLARY CLINTON IS A CAREER CRIMINAL WHO HAS CORRUPTED KEY FEDERAL OFFICIALS AT FBI AND DOJ. THE CLINTONS HAVE STAGED A COUP ON THE US GOVERNMENT. THIS COUNTER-COUP IS AN EFFORT TO WARN — AND UNSEAT — THE CROOKED HILLARY CLINTON REGIME.

HOW DOES WIKILEAKS PLAY INTO THIS COUNTER-COUP? HOW DOES THE ANTHONY WEINER SCANDAL HELP US TAKE BACK THE USA? WATCH FOR THESE ANSWERS!

Well…it’s more like “the November 1st” surprise!

The first thought that came to my mind after listening to that video was a phrase from the lyrics of a song called, “Heroes.”

“We Can Be Heroes, For Just One Day…”

Here’s a favorite version done by The Wallflowers:

“Heroes” Lyrics:

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim

Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day

I, I will be King
And you, you will be Queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

I, I can remember
(I remember)
Standing by the wall
(By the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads
(Over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
(Nothing could fall)

And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes just for one day1

We can be heroes
We can be heroes
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be heroes

TalkWisdom Reports…You Decide!

Theory: Why Hillary Can’t Think – What If It’s Medical?

November 1, 2016

That is a question that I think every voter needs to ask, research, understand,  and determine for themselves before voting on November 8, 2016.

When I find something that I want to report via another blog’s comment section, I need to learn to get on it right away;  especially when the comment section balloons to over 1,100 comments!  Makes it time consuming to locate it later.

Even though part of my purpose here is to discuss something that I originally found very disturbing and serious regarding Hillary Clinton, I ran across this humorous political cartoon.

It was too funny to pass up!

Sometimes we all need a break from the seriousness surrounding this election!  We still need to be able to laugh!

Now on to my original intention with this post.

Oh wait…then there was this, too:

But really, I DO want to get serious here.

Ah!  Finally found it!  It was in a comment thread over at The Last Refuge blog.  Over 1,145 comments so far!

Before I share the information, I want to tell readers about a phone conversation that I had yesterday with my 92-years-young mother.  She is, and has been, a lifelong Democrat.   (She has her health problems, but I’m so grateful to God that He has given her this long life.)

As a child I was happy attending the Democratic picnics in the N.J. town where I grew up.  I remember the joy and elation my parents felt when John F. Kennedy, being the Democratic nominee in the 1960 Election, won the election. I was in first grade and only six years old at the time.  Granted, we all know that JFK wasn’t a perfect man (none of us are!).  However, his ideology and what he stood for in life was more conducive to what most Conservative Christians still believe today…56 years later.

My dad died in 1994 at age 71. I know he would never agree with the current progressive, far-out-leftist politics of the current Democratic party.

My mom, on the other hand, takes almost everything that she watches on TV as truth. All the spin that was presented by the Hillary-backing media was enough to convince her that she should vote for Clinton to be the first woman president.

That was her attitude months and even just weeks ago.

Yesterday, she shared remorse about mailing in her ballot for Hillary. She said that what is being reported about Clinton now makes it difficult for her to know what to believe about the woman.

Months ago, I told her that I’d rather not discuss this upcoming election because I instinctively knew that we would disagree and even way back then I was a Never Hillary voter.  She droned on about how “wonderful” she thought Hillary was and I just said to her that I have seen Clinton lie constantly and could not vote for her.  At the time, I was also  a skeptic regarding Trump.  I didn’t want to argue with my elderly mom, so we stayed clear of that subject until yesterday’s discussion.

With that being said, here is a link to several videos over at YouTube where a doctor shares his expertise on why he thinks that Hillary Clinton has Parkinson’s Disease.

The final video that has been posted by a commenter over at The Last Refuge reveals much about Hillary’s bizarre behavior.

 

wolfmoon1776 says:

This woman is one bad judgment after another. At first we want to believe that she’s just saying all this crazy stuff – that she just lies pathologically to skate out of trouble or attack Trump.

But what if she – or even just some part of her – really believes it? What if it’s actually medical?

VidZette.com video:  Hillary Clinton – Why She Can’t Think.

In my mind, this is the worst of the numerous cover-ups going on concerning Hillary Clinton. How so many people can think it’s OK to attempt to conceal her ailment from the public and allow her to run for president, become the nominee, and then to arrange for her to cheat at the debates, is not only desperately mean…it’s beyond comprehension!

That video above helps to explain why she looked down at her podium so often during the debates.   It is suspected that she had the answers in front of her on a small lite screen.  My husband noticed that, particularly at the third debate. It is also suspected that she had answers being fed to her via an earpiece.

What is the end game in all of this?

I think it was to have her be the next puppet “president” (like 0bama has been)  under “Dr. Evil” billionaire George Soros.  We have suffered through 8 years of nation-wide calamity and damage!  We don’t need or want such deception and evil to continue to destroy our beloved nation!

I continue to pray that God sees us through this terrible time of deceit being perpetrated against Americans and that no matter what happens on Election Day 2016, we can come through either the devastation or the joy that will ultimately result from the choice that is ultimately made on this upcoming fateful day.

Dear Christian readers,

You might find any or all of the articles in this month’s Decision Magazine helpful.

Every article is very informative and I encourage everyone to read them.

I’d like to end with this quote from Franklin Graham in the “Message for a Troubled Nation” article:

Our job as Christians is to make the impact of Christ felt in every phase of life–religious, social, economic and political. But we cannot do it in our own strength or wisdom. We can only do it if we surrender ourselves completely to God. Be an advocate for God’s truth, for His righteousness. And let’s elect men and women to office who will lead this nation back to really being on nation under God–one that can truthfully say once again, “In Almighty God we trust.”

Ultimately, we know this eternal truth:

Rom 8:35

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Rom 8:36

As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[fn]

Rom 8:37

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Rom 8:38

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come

Rom 8:39

nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

This “House of Cards” Circus Election!

October 31, 2016

My husband told me last night that what we are seeing in this crazy circus of an election season is that it all resembles so much of what the Netflix series “House of Cards” portrays about government sleaziness  and corruption.

 

One commenter over at Amazon wrote that the series was about:

“A shadowy and corrupt world for power and self-advantage.”

Another commenter wrote:

“I’m as cynical as it gets when it comes to government, but the plot is just ridiculous.”

After all, it’s Hollyweird work at play so why would anyone think the plot wouldn’t be ridiculous?

Another commenter wrote:

“I liked it because of the great acting but the story is very, very dark so not for everyone.”

That comment is enough reason for me to not view the series.

It was interesting to find a blogger this morning who wrote a post that mentioned the same comparison as my husband did regarding “House of Cards.” In the past, I have never felt the desire to watch any of the episodes and do not care to view them now. However, the blogger over at “Hillbuzz” put forth some great points about the re-opening of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Hillbuzz: 9 Days Before the Election: Huma Abedin Clearly Belongs in Prison

It is best to go to the link and read it all, but here are some highlights:

So, all weekend everyone has been losing their damn minds over Comey’s letter. I’ve read all of the various theories as to what’s going on and I draw the following conclusions:

1. Hillary Clinton has been caught lying, because something on Huma Abedin’s computer is so obviously confidential and not-all0wed-to-be-on-Huma’s-computer that everything Hillary said to the FBI and to Congress is obviously a lie. She will either have to admit gross incompetence or she’ll be proven to be a liar…and something on Huma’s computer will prove this.

****

2. Huma Abedin needs to go to prison. Do you remember Scooter Libby? So much crazy stuff happens now every day that this feels like it happened in the 1800s, but it was only just 2005 (11 years ago). I had to look up what exactly Libby went to prison for, but it is much less terrible than what Huma Abedin has clearly been up to. Libbey was charged with obstructing justice, lying to the FBI, making false statements to various people, and perjuring himself. This was all about Valerie Plame, the CIA-agent who was the wife of Ambassador Joe Wilson. Her cover was blown and the FBI investigated Libby for being involved in blowing her cover as a way for the Bush Administration to get back at Wilson for speaking out against the Administration’s war plans. The FBI came down hard on Libby and he went to jail. Why the hell isn’t Huma Abedin in handcuffs already?

3. I think James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and others involved in making the investigation go away in July need to go to prison too. So, you let Hillary off the hook when obviously something bad was going on…and it’s so bad that right before a presidential election James Comey pops up again like a whack-a-mole to reignite all of this. So why the hell wasn’t a proper investigation conducted in the first place? What corruptocrats were behind that? All of them need to go to prison. At this point, Donald Trump needs to call for the reopening of Alcatraz to hold all of these high-ranking people who deserve to go to prison.

****

4. I’m seeing people speculating that the FBI might be completely corrupt and untrustworthy, but that the local police in New York City are still honest and decent enough to have found an angle to bring the Clintons down. Preet Bharara needs to be looked at for the position of Comey’s replacement as FBI Director. Who better to go after everyone in the FBI who is corrupt and went along with James Comey in July? Bharara appears to have been the one who realized that something the NYPD found in Anthony Weiner’s possession contradicted everything that Comey said on July 5th.

What I think they found is something that shows “intent.” Remember how Comey made the bizarre assertion that the FBI could let the Clintons do whatever they wanted and not prosecute them because nothing showed “intent”?

Well, what if Bharara (everyone seems to call him “Preet”) discovered something on Huma’s computers that showed intent? If that was found, then Comey could not ignore it…because Comey made such a big deal about his claim that “intent” was required for prosecution (even though the law did not actually require “intent”).

What I believe happened is that the NYPD turned everything over to Bharara like they were supposed to do. Bharara is not scared of anyone and is pretty much an American hero and a new version of Elliott Ness. Bharara saw that he could easily contradict Comey and I bet he went to the FBI and said that unless they do what they are supposed to do and stop playing politics that Bharara would have his own press conference and bring the FBI down.

I must admit that I had not heard about Preet Bharara before reading Kevin Dujan’s post, so I did a search and found out what type of man he is.

Wikipedia: Preet Bharara

Wow! The man has been actively fighting corruption for most of his career. There were only two minor controversies that he was apparently involved in listed at the Wikipedia site.

A Daily Mail article claims that he was actively investigating the Clinton Foundation.

Numerous articles can be found by doing a search. It appears to me that this man could be considered a hero for doing his job properly and exposing the corruption that needs to be brought into the light of day. It’s nice to read about such a great person,  because individuals like him appear to be so rare in the current political cesspool of corruption!

Unintended Consequences of Walking According to the Course of This World

October 28, 2016

Over the past several days, I have noticed that blog readers have landed here at Talk Wisdom after they had done a search for “rowboat with Trump.”  Several new visitors have become followers here, most likely due to that particular post.

Yesterday, Megyn Kelly (of Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File”)interviewed far leftist Michael Moore (never thought I’d EVER write his name on this blog!)  on the Fox News Channel regarding his latest documentary entitled, “Trumpland.”  [Readers can do a search for the interview and clip I’m referring to in this post.  Caution, disgusting language is used in the documentary clips.]

It’s interesting that Trump and many supporters cheered the quote that Moore made in the movie for why so many Americans are backing Trump.  However, Moore appeared blisteringly angry during the Kelly file interview that a clip of his movie was being used as a positive reason for people to actually vote for Trump.

It’s quite the juxtaposition, isn’t it?

Some might label this as unintended consequences.

Perhaps some might call it karma.

Others may say it’s kismet.

The Bible tells us what is most important in all of this!* (see below)

It appears that Moore’s “positive” comments about Trump and why his followers are voting for him may backfire on his desire to push Americans to vote for HilLIARy!  It’s like an act of God has done this…in that Moore’s additional comments after the positive comments he made about Trump and his followers may end up getting lost in the shuffle and not even heard by many voters.

The millennial generation, in particular, has a much shorter attention span and often only reads quotes via Twitter, or just the brief memes on Facebook.  If they don’t see the entire movie and only hear about (or, just read) that quote, then they may take what was only said in that pro-Trump quote clip and think that it makes total sense NOT to vote for HiLIARy, and to then cast their votes for Trump on November 8th!

Look, I don’t know for sure what kind of president Trump will be if he wins.  The unknowns about him could be cause for concern.  I truly hope and pray that he will stay committed to his promises on the campaign trail.   However, I do know for a fact that HRC would be an absolute disaster for our nation! 

All of the corruption that has been exposed about her, (i.e. the cheating of the Democrats, the dishonesty of the Clinton campaign, the criminality of the leaked emails, the quid pro quo connections between the Clinton Foundation and campaign donors,  the corruption of the FBI director, James Comey, and the now damning evidence against him that has been brought out…  etc.) that has all been exposed via Wikileaks and Project Veritas proves this fact!

No matter how much evidence of evil and corruption is released about crooked HiLIARy, there will always be people who will choose to ignore it. That’s truly sad and disturbing…to say the least!

*******

Ephesians 2:1-10  tells us about the consequences of “walking according to the course of this world” verses “being made alive by grace through Christ Jesus.”

Eph 2:1

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

Eph 2:2

in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

Eph 2:3

among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

Eph 2:4

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

Eph 2:5

even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)

Eph 2:6

and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

Eph 2:7

that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:8

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

Eph 2:9

not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Eph 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

A Christian Voter: “I believe Trump is our rowboat. Except he’s more like a battleship!”

October 24, 2016

The following essay [below] is copied from Freedom Is Just Another Word blog. It appears to have been written for email distribution.

Regular readers here know that I am a NEVER HILLARY voter, but that I also have had several concerns regarding Trump for president.  With all of the research I have done and how far the media of mass deception is “in the tank” for HiLIARy, I still feel that he would likely be light-years better than crooked Hillary. Since we only have those two main candidates to choose from in this election,  being a “hold your nose and vote for Trump” voter is far better (IMHO) than voting for corrupt, untrustworthy, and serial liar Hillary.   The more I read about her and her cohorts in crime, the more I realize that people who are voting for her are most likely one of the following types of voters.

  1.  Ignorant of the Clinton crime family.
  2.  Choose to ignore the evil, corruption, and lying that she has been involved in over the past 8 Obummer years, and during this election season.  Do the research and see that she is involved in over 30 years of corruption!
  3.  Know about one or both of the above, and simply just do not care.
  4.  Are spiritually blinded and therefore complicit in such blatant corruption.
  5. [Add your own judgment of the situation!]

She should be in JAIL!!!  NOT running for president!

My conversations with Christian friends and relatives have informed me that many will vote for Trump, while just a few may vote third-party. Here in blue Dem California, it most likely wouldn’t matter how Christian conservatives vote, anyway. This state hasn’t [electorally] voted for a Republican presidential nominee since Ronald Reagan in the ’80s! I highly doubt that CA would collectively, and/or electorally, bring a state victory for Trump in the presidential election.

[On a side note, I watched a recorded program on Reagan’s presidency last night which reminded me that he won 48 states against Walter Mondale with a whopping 525 – 33 electoral vote count!]

Anyway, with that said, I present the following argument as to why HiLIARy should be summarily rejected for the presidency, and why this particular Christian voter and writer [NOTE:  no name was given on the essay] encourages others to vote for Trump.

 

A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE ON THE ELECTION

This may be the best and most honest political promotion statement you will ever read. It decidedly does not brush objections aside. You hate Hillary? READ it. You hate Trump? READ it. You think there’s no choice? READ it. And, read it with your grown-up hat on. We’ve all been dealt huge responsibility with this election. The first step toward accepting responsibility is accepting it, and the first step toward accepting it is recognizing it. READ THIS. Read every single word. It’ll take you about three minutes.
=============================
Are you sickened and despondent with the current campaign and upcoming presidential election?

I consider myself a conservative and do truly believe our country is at a political/economic/moral/social crossroads. I need to let you know I could/would never vote for Hillary Clinton to lead this country. To me, she represents everything that is wrong with our current political structure. On the flip side, I look and listen to Donald Trump and I cringe at every rude, insulting comment he makes. If you find yourself in a similar state of mind, please read the following article:

A Message For Christians About Donald Trump

Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
“A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof at home with massive flooding up to the 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says “No, I’m waiting for God. I prayed and I know he’s coming.” Second Rowboat arrives. “No, I’m waiting for God.” 3rd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”

Water rises. The man drowns. Now he’s meeting God in heaven. The religious man says, “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”

God says, “Hey dummy, I sent you 3 rowboats. Are you blind?”
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?

Maybe God is trying to tell us something important–that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural-born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished. Maybe the rules of gentlemen don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.

Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford or Paul Ryan? Did any of them win? Did they lead the GOP to “the promised land?” Did they change the direction of America? No, because if you don’t win, you have no say.

Paul Ryan couldn’t even deliver his own state, Wisconsin! And as leader of the House, Paul Ryan rolls over to Obama like my dog rolls over for a scrap of food, or a steak bone. Nice, but obedient. I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog. My dog is actually a pretty good defender and loyal.

Maybe God is knocking on your door loudly, but you’re not listening. Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time. Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead. It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone. Finished. Kaput. Adios.

And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different. Someone you haven’t ever experienced before– because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.

Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church. Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.

I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary, God is a pretty tough guy. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.

Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude. When we won WWII, was God “nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan? Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton so the good guys can defeat evil?

It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.” That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.

And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan aren’t nice at all–because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America. And God can’t allow that. Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.

“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isiah 40:30-31)

God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.

So let me repeat my message to Christians: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”

 

I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat. Except he’s more like a battleship!

No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time. Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values. The choice should be easy for Christians. It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the American dream.

Have We All Been Duped?

October 22, 2016

This is a question that appears in a new post over at Inquisitr.com – Wikileaks Election Truth Bomb: ‘There Is No U.S. Election’ Presidents Are Selected Not Elected.

Excerpt:

Using their Twitter account, WikiLeaks has dropped a massive election truth bomb on concerned U.S. residents and livid voters alike. According to WikiLeaks, despite the rancor and enthusiasm monopolizing the lives of most Americans this month (and for a dozen or so months prior), there is no U.S. election. It’s not real. It’s a dog-and pony show designed to give American citizens the illusion of having a choice.
 
As YourNewsWire reports, the WikiLeaks election stunner was catapulted onto Twitter just after WikiLeaks trounced President Barack Obama by publicly releasing a batch of his emails and in response to criticism of WikiLeaks for doing so. Indeed, WikiLeaks was accused of playing “partisan” political games and trying to influence the outcome of the current U.S. election cycle.

[Christine includes:  We already know that Hillary is Obama is Soros!

H/T: Pastor Ward Clinton]

 
[In] a nutshell, U.S. presidents are selected, rather than elected, and all of this election drama is nothing more than a political farce. Drama of the worst kind. And divisive, too.

I don’t know much about that site so I hope and pray that this Wikileaks information is not true!  However, I would not be a bit surprised if it turned out to be true.  I think that President John F. Kennedy tried to warn us:

One ray of hope:

Despite whatever well-laid plans the so-called “shadow government” may have had for the current election cycle, it’s apparent in the WikiLeaks email dump that nobody really accounted for Donald Trump’s popularity among his fan base and potential voters.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign pollster Benenson Strategy Group says she is tanking

October 21, 2016

Oh my gosh! Just as so many alert Americans have suspected, the media of mass deception polls have been allegedly “skewed and narrative [driven]” in order to prop up the dying campaign of HilLIARy!

Excerpt:

(4) Americans are catching on to the fake polls:

The BSG report says “The public has lost faith in polling” because:

“Poll-driven narratives have been pushed too far, alienating most of the voting population. The use of polls as a psychological weapon has also been noticed (especially on social media). As the poll-gap narrative becomes ever more extreme, obvious visible evidence (rally-size, yard-signs, bumper-stickers, memes / social-media posts) becomes more and more obviously contradictory. Attempts at shaming outspoken poll-deniers such as Bill Mitchell on Twitter have failed in 2016 where they succeeded (Dean Chambers) in 2012. We are in uncharted territory.

Even hooks into non-philosophically compromised pro-Republican polling outfits such as FOX, Rasmussen, and Gravis have not produced substantial results.”

In other words, the phony polls are not working because the American people are not stupid — we can see that the polling data contradict the HUGE turnouts for Trump rallies compared with Hillary’s anemic rallies.

 

Hopefully, this means that the massive voter fraud they are planning (and, most likely have already started carrying out with mail-in ballots) will be overcome so that this election won’t be stolen by another lying, scheming, crooked Democratic candidate!

Go over and read the PDF link that Fellowship of the Minds so brilliantly salvaged where there is a discussion about the usual methods of choice to try and scare voters away are listed and [called “Non-Recommended Salvage Options”].  They surmise that such methods probably won’t work this time, so they need to consider using the “FIRESIGN” effect.

This is almost too crazy to believe…isn’t it? It’s like that mind control device developed by The Riddler in the Batman Forever movie!

Talk Wisdom Reports…You Decide

Fellowship of the Minds

A document has surfaced online — a report titled Salvage Program from Benenson Strategy Group, the pollster and strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The report looks professional and credible. It’s called Salvage Program because its goal is to “salvage” — to rescue, save, recover, restore — Hillary’s campaign, which is tanking.

In the words of the report (my words are in green):

“At this point Donald Trump has both momentum and enthusiasm. Distrust in the mainstream media is blunting the impact of the collective polling narrative [which implies that the polls we are told are fraudulent — their data manufactured to favor Hillary]. As Election Day approaches, Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings have crashed to historic lows (12%) in non-partisans and Donald Trump is consolidating support (97% of LV Republican-identifying respondents are either enthusiastic or very enthusiastic about voting for Trump).”

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed God’s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). It’s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because it’s tainted by man’s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we can’t find on our own. It is God’s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a “post-truth” world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? It’s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. It’s what’s true for me—my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects God’s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have God’s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truth” (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, “The entirety of your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). When Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6), He wasn’t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesn’t change from person to person. It doesn’t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is “no one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].” This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal.
