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.

There Is A Greater Foundation

July 5, 2016

A young man recently told me that he plans to vote for HiLIARy Clinton.  During a previous conversation weeks ago, I briefly mentioned several of the scandals that she has been a part of  (Benghazi, emails, Clinton foundation corruption etc.) and I told him point blank that she belongs in jail!  I didn’t see the need to repeat my concerns about her a second time.  I instinctively knew that they would fall on deaf ears.

Knowing that I’m a conservative Republican, he asked me who I was going to vote for.  I said, “I just can’t vote for Trump.”  He said, “So, you’re abstaining from voting then?”  I replied, “When it comes to voting for president this year?  Most likely, yes.”

I explained to him that living in ultra liberal California (he likes to call himself “progressive”) means that my vote for any Republican candidate (since Reagan, who I think was the last Republican presidential candidate to win in the state of California) won’t count for the final outcome in this state anyway, so why cast a vote for someone in whom I have doubts about for the highest office in the land?

I read a very good and interesting article on another blog this morning. The blog is named “We The People of the United States”(In Support and Defense of the Constitution for the United States of America) and the essay is entitled What Is True Social Justice?

The author is a Trump supporter. “Miri” makes the point that the GOP Illuminati is frightened by Trump. I think I could agree with that. Many bloggers have written about the not-so-secret “one party system” disguised as Democrats vs. RINOS in Congress. The fact that the RINO leadership in both the House and the Senate have done NOTHING to stop 0bammy’s destructive policies is proof enough for me. In fact, there are rumors that there are GOP elitists (elitists…in their own corrupted minds, that is) who would rather vote for HiLIARy than Trump. As I have written before, Trump would be light-years better than HiLIARy (and 82% of people in a new poll taken in Virginia think she should be prosecuted), but I still think that Trump’s “you’re fired” attitude towards others is troubling.  What’s more disturbing is perhaps it would cause him to never take proper advice from anyone in his future presidential cabinet. We already have that with 0bummer, who has consistently ignored what military officers and advisors have been telling him regarding fighting ISIS for 7 1/2 years!

Not to mention the continued harassment of 0bummer admin’s plan for ‘summer of chaos’ and martial law (revealed through Black Live Matter hacked messages).

In the first link above (WTPOTUS), we read the FACT that 0bummer’s presidency in the White House has been a fascist’s dream!

Excerpt:

According to one definition, fascism

stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition …

Kagan, who was once a Republican and who is married to Victoria Nuland, must not have been paying attention for the last 7 1/2 years during which Barack Hussein Obama II has placed the U.S. well down the path towards fascism.

We currently have a president who refuses to enforce immigration laws, and other laws as well; who thumbs his nose at Congress, the courts, and the Constitution; whose wife dictates what school children must and must not eat; who uses the power of his office to menace the media; who, as a candidate, formed a “truth squad” that used prosecutors and sheriffs to police what people said about him; who threatens banks and businesses to make them to bend to his will; whose “justice department” warns states that they’d better not try to keep people from using a bathroom (or dormitory, or gym locker room, or shower room) that doesn’t conform with their birth sex, and which threatens citizens that they’d better not say anything on social media that criticizes Islam … Well, you’ve got the picture.

The author goes on and writes:

I do completely agree with Brookings that

distribution based on social justice is the main problem of the world today.

Because through this concept of social justice, communists, socialists, fascists, liberals, and progressives have incrementally instituted our “present system” that features producers from whom wealth is taken and recipients to whom other people’s wealth is given.

There are as many definitions of social justice as there are fish in the sea, but the definition doesn’t really matter. What matters is how progressives use that phrase as code words for Marxist redistribution of wealth.

When Trump met with many evangelical leaders a while back, there was some speculation that Trump may now be “a baby Christian.” Well, I read Marsha West’s recent column over at Renew America (see the links within for explanations of what she is claiming) entitled, “James Dobson reveals who he believes led Donald Trump to Christ,” and I wasn’t really comforted by what I read there.

James Dobson starts off by writing:

Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No.

So…who is Paula White?

It is no secret that Paula White is a WoF prosperity preacher. Sad to say that any person that rejects the true Gospel of Christ and embraces WoF’s false health & wealth gospel, as she does, is not a regenerate (born again) Christian. In fact, those who have bought into WoF beliefs are caught up in a cult. WoF is not historic orthodox Christianity – not even close! Its teaching on faith is right out of the New Age playbook:

      Faith is a tangible

force

      . This

force

      is released through the spoken word, thus name-it-and-claim-it. When we speak words of faith,

power

      is discharged that will accomplish our desires. Through faith we can have health, wealth, success – anything we want!

 

Moreover…

Alleged laws of the universe can be manipulated independent of God. Does this mean God is subject to the laws He created? According to word-faith theology, yes. (Source)

The prosperity “gospel.”

*Sigh*….

Sounds like something that Trump would embrace because he lives in prosperity and “The Art of the Deal” is his gospel! I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with this businessman’s success, but such success is only temporal. “You can’t take it with you” as we all know, and one day he will stand before Jesus Christ either at the Great White Throne Judgment (if not saved)

 

 

or the Judgment Seat of Christ (if he is saved and redeemed by the true Gospel of Christ).

The book of Jude warns us of the “prosperity gospel” heresy and all kinds of false “prophets” who would skew individuals away from the true gospel of Jesus Christ!

Ms. West concludes her essay:

And if it’s true that it was Paula White, as Dr. Dobson seems to think, then we can surmise from what we know about this woman, that Donald Trump did not hear the true Gospel of Christ from her. Sadly, what he heard instead was the false prosperity gospel that saves no one.

I’ll close with a warning from the Apostle Paul:

      But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron…

1 Tim. 4:1,2

We can hold out hope that one day Trump will be genuinely born again in Christ. Until then, if he is elected this November, we can hope that God will use this secular man (in a similar manner as He used Cyrus in the Bible) to renew and rebuild our currently beleaguered Judeo-Christian nation.

 

A little history about King Cyrus.

2Ch 36:22

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying,

Ch 36:23

Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the LORD God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May the LORD his God be with him, and let him go up!

Cyrus made this proclamation 48 years after the temple was destroyed (2 Chronicles 36:18,19), the year after he conquered Babylon. The book of Ezra tells the story of this proclamation and the return of the exiles to Judah.

Second Chronicles focuses on the rise and fall of the worship of God as symbolized by the Jerusalem temple. David planned the temple, Solomon built it and then put on the greatest dedication service the world had ever seen. Worship in the temple was superbly organized.

But several evil kings defiled the temple and degraded worship so that the people revered idols more highly than God. (Sound A LOT like today…doesn’t it?) Finally, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon destroyed the temple (36:19). The kings were gone, the temple was destroyed, and the people were removed. The nation was stripped to its very foundation. But fortunately there was a greater foundation – God himself. When everything in life seems stripped away from us, we too still have God- his Word, his presence, and his promises.

Sam Vaknin: Evaluating the mental health of a public figure.

May 4, 2016

Last evening I was walking the dogs when my husband texted me that Senator Cruz was suspending his campaign. When I returned to the house, I texted one of my friends and lamented that we do not have anyone to vote for in either the primary or the general election. She wrote back:

Yes, I am officially a never Trump…

If doesn’t matter because he would be as bad as Hillary…

With this development in the presidential race, there are people cheering, while others are truly sad and groaning in despair!

I will be meeting with another friend this afternoon who is pro-Trump and will probably be ecstatic that he is now the presumptive republican nominee. We have been very close friends for about 26 years and rarely disagree on anything. However, we do disagree about Trump.

Previously, I wrote this post where, I tried to warn my friend that Trump doesn’t appear to be a genuine Christian believer in Jesus Christ.  However, in order to not sound too harsh about my reservations regarding a Trump presidency, I also wrote, “we aren’t electing a ‘pastor in chief’ and she agreed with that.”

Excerpt:

We got on the subject of Trump’s faith, and I shared with my friend the research I had done on him (some of which is in this post).

My friend didn’t know this information about Trump, (especially the point that Trump doesn’t see the need to ask God for forgiveness) and being a devout Catholic I think that it concerned her as it has concerned me. However, I did say that we aren’t electing a “pastor in chief” and she agreed with that. I stated that in the Bible, God has used non-believers to carry out His eternal plan. We know from history that many of these types of leaders (the various “isms” like communism, Islamism etc.) have wreaked havoc upon their own people.  The Bible warns us about the adversary, Satan who comes to “steal, kill, and destroy” through the use of such evil leaders.  God can use even this as a form of chastisement to turn people back to God.

My question.  Do we need more chastisement after the last 7+ long egregiously aberrant years under the current hoax and chains administration?

Well, a good blogging friend of mine wrote a post LESSONS IN SCRIPTURE: “We’re Electing A Leader, Not A Pastor”. Upon reading it, I found myself agreeing with him on many points!

Excerpt:

Well, for all our ‘technological advancement,’ our founders were far wiser than we are today.  They understood the perils of pride and arrogance, and that, if we allowed it to govern us instead of God’s Word, it would cost us our liberty.  If you doubt this, then open this link and start reading their words.  I am pretty sure they would condemn anyone who says “we’re electing a leader, not a pastor.”  But then, you might disagree…

In the Founders’ Words: the Essential Role of Religion in Public and Civic Life

Next, I ran across the following (absolutely devastating!) post over at Gulag Bound.

How Bad a Narcissist is Donald Trump, Really? Sam Vaknin Explains

There is so much to read at the link that it is difficult to excerpt! However, here are a few:

Vaknin: Evaluating the mental health of a public figure requires an inordinate amount of research. Over the past 5 years, I have watched well over 600 hours of Trump in various settings and read everything he has written and was quoted as saying. I have no such in-depth acquaintance with the other candidates except Clinton.

Trump is a malignant narcissist. This view is shared by dozens of mental health professionals who went on public record with their analyses of his mental infirmity. He is dangerous, antisocial, destructive, vindictive, sadistic, and hypervigilant (paranoid and hypersensitive).

[Vaknin]: Trump is so unfit to be president that I am not sure where to start. But here are a few issues that are likely to raise their collective ugly heads even in the first weeks of a Trump Presidency:

Trump regards himself as omniscient, an authority on anything and everything, from aesthetics to ethics. He, therefore, lacks intellectual curiosity and regards outside advice as both superfluous and injurious (because it implies that he is less than perfect). He is likely to surround himself with timid yes-men and sycophantic acolytes, and generate an impregnable echo chamber rather than a council of wise men and women.

Trump’s grasp of nuanced reality, weak as it already is, is likely to deteriorate further to the point of paranoid psychosis. Faced with opposition, however tenuous, he is likely to react by scapegoating and by inciting street or state violence against targeted groups. Trump is the state, so his enemies (anyone who as much as voices doubt or disagrees with him) is, by definition, an enemy of the state.

[Like] all narcissists, Trump believes that he is universally loved, adored, and admired. He attributes this ostensible (and utterly delusional) blanket approbation to his effusive charm and irresistibility. He is firmly convinced that he can motivate people to transgress against their own moral convictions and to break the law, if necessary, just by the sheer force of his monumental personality. Trump idealizes and then rapidly devalues people, collectives, and institutions. Trump is in sempiternal flux: he is inconstant in his judgements, opinions, views, and fleeting attachments.

Trump is intellectually lazy, so he is a firm adherent of shortcuts and of “fake it till you make it.” It is a dangerous approach that led him to botch numerous business deals and inflict untold damage and suffering on thousands of people. [AW: e.g., bankrupt businesses, Trump University.]

Trump is authoritarian in the worst sense of the word. In his disordered, chaotic mind, he is infallible (incapable of erring), omnipotent (can achieve anything if he just sets his mind to it), and omniscient (needs to learn nothing as he is the fount of all true, intuitive knowledge). This precludes any proper team work, orderly governance, institutional capacity, flow of authority and responsibility, and just plain structure. Trump is an artist, led by inconsistent and intermittent inspiration, not by reliable, old-fashioned perspiration. He is not a self-made man, but a self-conjured caricature of a self-made man. Trump is guided by his alleged inner divine wisdom. He is a malevolent guru and cult leader, not a politician or a statesman.

Ironically, Trump’s much trumpeted grandiosity is fragile because it is based on delusional and fantastic assumptions of perfection and intellectual brilliance which are hard to defend. Hence Trump’s relentless and compulsive pursuit of affirmation and adulation. He needs to be constantly idolized just to feel half human. Criticism and disagreement, however minor and well-intentioned, are perceived as unmitigated threats to the precarious house of cards that is Trump’s personality. Consequently, Trump is sadistically vindictive, aiming not just to counter such countervailing opinions regarding his Godlike status, but to deter and intimidate future critics. [AW: behaviors unfortunately lumped nebulously together in the media as “bullying”]

The author being interviewed in that post certainly has done far more research than the average person. He has spent over 600 hours on diagnosing Trump!  He has written books on malignant personality disorder!

Sam Vaknin is the author of “Malignant Self-love: Narcissism Revisited” and other books and e-books about personality disorders in general and pathological narcissism in particular. His work is cited widely in both scholarly literature and the media. His YouTube channels have 45,000 subscribers and more than 15,000,000 views.

Ugh…our future as a nation needs to be held up in much prayer and we need to cry out to God for forgiveness and healing!  If we are not entering into the end times that leads to the future Great Tribulation, then we are certainly experiencing the “birth pangs” that Jesus told us would happen the closer we get!

Rom 8:22

For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

***Dear believers in the Lord Jesus Christ! ***

Rom 8:19

For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

Rom 8:20

For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;

Rom 8:21

because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 

***PLEASE read all of  Romans 8  for needed encouragement!***

 

2Ch 7:14

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Rush: Liberals see right wing as bigger threat than Islam.

March 29, 2016

WND has an article up today where radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh makes the claim that conservatives are a bigger threat to liberals than Islam.


Rush: Liberals see right wing as bigger threat than Islam
‘The left thinks we’re unjust and immoral’

Excerpt:

“Who are their biggest enemies? Christians, conservatives, right wingers. The left, which is Islam – militant Islam is on the left, just as the Democratic Party is,” Limbaugh continued. “Take a look their common political opponents or other kinds of enemies. It’s us, folks. This is the thing that a lot of people can’t get through their heads. We had 9/11. We had Fort Hood. Do you have Obama condemning it? Obama will not condemn it.”

Limbaugh went on to say that Europe is importing its own destruction, given that Islamic radicals have vowed to use Western freedom as a tool to bring about its destruction. The host said the cultural transformations happening in Europe give Americans a glimpse into their own future unless they act now.

“For some reason, Obama and his crew do not look at Islam as a threat to their power. Terrorism is a threat to their power, but they see that in us. We are a threat to their power – and we are. We’re trying to take it away from them. We’re trying to beat them in elections. That’s not allowed. That will not happen. We pose too big a threat to them. They could peacefully co-exist with all these other people. They’re on the same place in the political prism. They’re both out there on the left. Both have the same common enemy: The United States, Great Satan.”

Limbaugh said liberals find America an unjust and immoral place because its founding included slavery, while Islamic terrorists come to the same conclusion because the U.S. is populated with infidels.

“You listen to the ex-president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and you couldn’t tell the difference in what he says about America than Joe Biden on the campaign trail, or Obama,” said Limbaugh.

“They talk about this country in identical ways. They talk about Republicans in identical ways. We are their biggest threat, making us their central enemy. The American left, Democratic Party, and liberalism worldwide, its enemy is conservatism. Conservatism, if ever it succeeded – really succeeded – would vastly shrink the source of power, wealth and existence for all these people, and that is government.”

;

I found the following photo back in 2010 which was taken during an anti-Israel march in San Fransicko.

Notice what is in the photo below.  The man holding the sign is wearing Muslim terrorist garb.  The man walking next to him is wearing a commie red t-shirt with the image of Che Guevara!

How ironic that the Muslim man is holding that sign (below)!  Here’s a quote from Che Guevara that may explain their union of nefarious ideologies:

“I don’t care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.”

Che Guevara

H/T Brainy Quote

I wish that more Americans would heed Ronald Reagan’s advice:

Ronald Reagan

“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

Ronald Reagan

I must admit that I found it confusing when I first heard about the march and saw that photo! However, by the year 2013, it became much clearer why these two evil ideologies would march together in anti-Israel solidarity!

Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil (Thomas Mann).
(H/T – Atlas Shrugs)

The following is an excerpt from my former Talk Wisdom blog essay entitled, Why The Unholy Alliance of Islam and Communism? Taqiyya?

What those two men (seen in photo below, marching together, BTW, in an anti-Israel demonstration during the Bush presidential years) represent is the forming of an alliance between radical Islam and Communism!  Also, notice what the sign says:  “Thank You S.F. (San Francisco) Liberals – You Die Last.”  How ANYONE could possibly support either group is beyond any semblance of reason!  Liberals are being USED by both!  Yet they are either complicit in either ideology or just too damn ignorant to realize it!

I thought that the evil alliance of radical Islam and Communism (Putin and his ilk) would one day need to battle against each other for dominance of the world. This may still happen. Perhaps the caliphate-hungry Iran is using Communist Putin in the usual Muslim deceptive tactics known as al Taqiyya?  Muslims might join together and tolerate Communists in an old taqiyya-style kind of temporary alliance.  Why?  Because of their joined hatred of Israel!  They are uniting with the intended plan of making a future collaborated attempt at destroying Israel!

But then, which one [Islam or Communism] will ultimately win out?

Well, this terrorist’s quote shows what radical Islam believes:

“Sons of Islam everywhere, the jihad is a duty – to establish the rule of Allah on earth and to liberate your countries and yourselves from America’s domination and its Zionist allies, it is your battle – either victory or martyrdom.”

Ahmed Yassin
H/T Brainy Quote

And, where does the U.S. fit into this picture?

If the Lord Jesus Christ tarries, then hopefully America will break free from this egregiously criminal ObamaFRAUD tyrannical government with a new conservative leader who will help get us back on track towards restoring our beloved Constitutional Republic!

If not, then we might very well be headed into the fulfillment of end times *prophecy.

Government Intrusion Into Our Private Lives is at An All-Time High

March 15, 2016

Tonight’s second (or is it the third or fourth?  I’ve lost count!) Super Tuesday primary may very well end up being the political death knell (rhetorically speaking) for at least two of the remaining four Republican candidates for president.  But if they do well enough to stay in, I wouldn’t mind.

I have written about my reservations and fears regarding Trump, but if he ends up being the Republican nominee, he would still be light years better [IF, and only IF he is being honest about his conservative political views] than Lying Hillary or Commie Sanders!

I recently ran across several articles about an author named Cheryl Chumley.  Very astute and smart woman!  I particularly liked the summary written below regarding her thoughts about illegal immigration and how the Democrats misuse the Bible, our Constitution (and practically anything else) in order to demonize those of us who want to secure the border once and for all and prevent illegal immigration.

Received an email from WND this morning which shares the fact that the Bible is on the side of secure borders.

Excerpt:

In Exodus 22:21, God commanded the Israelites, “You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.”

Some American Christians [the leftist ones – Christine adds!] have interpreted that passage as a mandate for the United States to excuse and accommodate illegal immigrants.

But award-winning journalist Cheryl Chumley notes a “sojourner” is a temporary visitor; illegal aliens seek to remain in the country, so that passage does not apply to them.

Moreover, she pointed out, God Himself was the one who separated the peoples of the Earth and confused their languages in Genesis 11, thus creating nations. So national sovereignty is perfectly biblical.

[The] Bible does not teach that breaking the law is OK, she asserted. She cited Proverbs 28:4, which reads: “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law strive against them.”

Chumley said it is unseemly for a nation based on the rule of law and Judeo-Christian values to reward illegal immigrants for their law-breaking by putting them on a “path to citizenship.”

“I don’t understand why the lawbreakers are given extra concessions while the citizens are put in a second-class state,” she told WND in and interview.

Well, many Americans who now are aware of the games of the Washington establishment on both sides of the aisle understand!

Chumley also wrote a column explaining why Trumps Fight is Really a War on DC.  This is why the establishment Republicans will probably do ANYTHING in order to keep Trump from the nomination.

In the comment section,  “ejim” wrote:

The battle isn’t “R” vs “D” and hasn’t been for years, it is very much Ruling Class vs. Citizens. The population/voters are made up of those that understand what is being done to our lives and our country and those on the opposing side that are content in their belief that nothing is different and our government knows best. The Donald has struck a chord with those of us that are resisting the destruction of our nation.

I think that is very true! The TEA Party tried to warn people about 0bama, but not enough people were listening. After 7+ horrid years of failed and destructive policies, who could blame people for wanting an anti-establishment Republican candidate?

Another commenter shared what I am worried might happen with a Trump presidency:

krowbro • 12 days ago

The one thing that draws me to Trump is the fact that so many in the establishment, both Democrat and Republican, are trying so hard to stop his freight train. On one level, I can’t help but wonder if Trump is executing a con, claiming to support positions that he has no intention of implementing. But if that were the case, then it seems that those in opposition would be in on it and either overtly or discreetly support him. It would have to be one heck of a conspiracy to think all of this is coordinated to fool the American public into voting for the status quo yet again

Because Trump has been supporting so many Democrats over the years, how could we trust that he is genuine with his rhetoric espousing conservative principles, goals, and action?

FYI: President Trump has a great Agenda:

•Lower/simplify taxes, and eliminate the IRS asap

•Stop IL-LEGAL immigration, anchor-babies, and AMNESTY

•Replace ObamaCare with market-driven TrumpCare

•Balance the federal budget in 4 years

•Down-size the bloated, corrupt US government and USPS

•Re-negotiate all international-trade agreements

•Expand the US Supreme Court from 9 to 15 Justices

•Remove Ryan and McConnell from leadership of Congress

•Impose TERM-LIMITS on Congress and US Supreme Court

•De-fund PBS and the Dept. of Education and Common Core

•Make English the official language of the USA

•Audit the Federal Reserve banking system

•Thorough investigation of 9-11 and BenGhazi

Although I can’t claim being at any of his rallies, I have heard what seems to be the same rhetoric over and over again without hearing any specifics on how he would accomplish these goals. I have watched every debate and heard maybe 4 or 5 of these items listed as goals. But again, no specifics on how he would accomplish them.

Another commenter had these important facts written down:

The Tyranny of the Establishment.

The establishment politician has betrayed America in their conduct and our trust in government is completely broken. A government has become tyrannical in….
– Using its power to persecute its adversaries and critics (IRS scandal)
– Using its power to hide and betray Americans of its failures (Benghazi)
– Using its power to protect favored establishment political elite from prosecution (Hillary email)
– Using its power to go against the popular will of the people (Obamacare)
– Using its power to overturn governments in which it disagrees (Ukraine, Syria, Libya,etc.)
– Using its power to advance and protect elite interests to the detriment of Americans (TPP and failure to prosecute Wall Street for the last financial crisis)
– Using its power to reshape America into the poster child of globalist and UN initiatives, against the will of Americans (open borders).
– Using its power to extort from the productive class to grow their political base among the bribed non-productive class (tax increases)

I agree most with what “Dawg em” writes here:

Dawg_em • 12 days ago

I’m coming to the conclusion that, setting his crony capitalist tendencies and previous support for liberals and their ideals aside, Trump’s narcissism may indeed be compelling him to make his mark on history by turning this country around and making war on the DC establishment.

While I don’t believe the ends justify the means, and I have trust issues with people who run for office that decide to make adjustments to previously held positions, I also believe God can use anyone he chooses for His purposes.

So the real question becomes: Have Americans repented enough to again receive God’s grace and much needed healing? I pray it is so.

In This Highly Contentious Political Season, Seek Out the Truth

March 12, 2016

There are several bloggers who are covering the Moveon.org thugs who, unfortunately, shut down the free speech rights of Donald Trump to speak in Chicago. How is it fair for these agitators to prevent his supporters (or those who just wanted to see what he had to say) to threaten violence in order to keep Trump from exercising his free speech rights to speak at the rally? I have chosen just to link to them so that you can see for yourselves what transpired.

1. The Last Refuge: Eyewitness Account From Chicago Trump Rally

2. The Last Refuge: Far-Left Anarchists With MoveOn.Org and Bernie Sanders Take Credit For Chicago Political Mayhem…

Because I believe in our nation’s First Amendment free speech rights, I DO think that these paid George Soros thugs have the right to protest. But I also think that the Trump rally should have also been given the right to have his voice heard. After all, if Bernie Sanders (a Socialist who would wreak even more havoc here in the U.S. than 0bama already has over the past 8 years) has the right to spew his far leftist, Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals rhetoric and techniques (a book that was dedicated to Lucifer!), totalitarian, anti-Capitalism, and anti-Israel beliefs; then someone like Donald Trump should be able to speak at rallies, too.  Plus, I can’t even get started on the liar Hillary, who continues to campaign despite the fact that she deserves to be indicted for her crimes!

With that said, I must say that I continue to believe that Trump is not the best choice to run on the Republican ticket. Of course, this entire scenario will play itself out and we will see what happens in the future. But I happen to think that the MORE people who hear Trump’s empty rhetoric, the better it will be for the other candidates. Case in point, the last Republican debate (which was the best IMHO) revealed the stark differences between Trump and the remaining candidates. The following post shares a few of my thoughts regarding why any of the other Republican candidates would be better than Trump.

Which One of These Is Not Like the Others?

Anyone who has been watching the news on the media of mass deception already knows about the comparisons of Trump to Hitler. Are such comparisons legitimate? Or, are they far-fetched fantasies within the anti-Trump groups of people who oppose him as a candidate for president?

Well, my Christian blogging friend over at Oil For Your Lamp has a well thought out post which discusses this very issue! Readers may or may not agree with what he wrote, but I thought that the comparison of Hitler’s style of rhetoric prior to 1939 which mesmerized the German people and Trump’s current style was absolutely chilling and definitely thought-provoking!

HISTORIC COMPARISONS: Is The Comparison Of Trump To Hitler ‘Legitimate?’

I like the fact that the author asks the question for readers to decide for themselves if such a comparison is true (or perhaps similar).

Excerpt:

OK, now, whether you love him or hate him, the best story on the comparison of Trump to Hitler is probably the Glenn Beck piece.  That is because Beck explains why the comparison is legitimate by pointing out that the people making these comparisons know history better than the average person.  By that, Beck means they know who Hitler was before he became known for starting the Holocaust and WW II.  The people comparing Trump to Hitler are not saying Trump is the 1939-45 Hitler, but the 1929-1938 Hitler.  Hitler was a different person before 1939, and it is that person to whom people are comparing Trump — and as you will soon see, they are correct to do so.

Now, before we begin looking at the similarities, let me suggest that you not look for exact matches.  Trump does not need to be repeating, word-for-word, the same things as Hitler to be using the same tactics.  Nor does Trump have to advocate the exact same program to be pushing the same agenda.  What we have to do is look for things that are similar between the two and then see if they both point to the same underlying agenda and tactics.  So, with this in mind, let me share a few useful links and highlight a few key points in them and let you determine whether or not they bear any resemblance to the things Trump has been doing and saying on the campaign trail.

I would encourage all to read the entire post:

HISTORIC COMPARISON: Is The Comparison of Trump to Hitler Legitimate?

Now, some readers may think that I might be siding with the Moveon.org thugs that prevented Trump from appearing at the Chicago rally.  Well, you would be COMPLETELY wrong about that and I can prove it!

Those thugs were all for another Hitler type liar, propagandist and America-destroying thug back in 2009!

Canada Free Press: Is Obama Studying the Hitler Handbook?

Just a little excerpt which, in hindsight speaks of 0bama:

The transformation of youth………how does this happen? How does one focus these young minds?

Hitler had it nailed down. He knew that youth were the future, more teachable and moldable. The adults of Germany remembered living under democracy and might not be so easily fooled by Hitler’s slams against democracy. Remember, Hitler was a socialist voted into power by a democracy! Does this sound familiar anyone? Can you think of any other country that as a republic or democracy voted in a socialist who wants control and power? Gee………

The Historic comparison post links to several other must read posts, including a post at Business Insider which revealed (back in Aug. 2015) that Donald Trump’s Ex-wife Once Said He Kept a Book of Hitler’s Speeches by His Bed.

Now, everyone can decide for themselves whether or not the ex-wife was bitterly gossiping against her ex or telling the truth.  However, if you read that link you will find out even more chilling information from individuals who apparently discussed the issue with Trump.

In my own mind, the two previous posts that I blogged about first stood out for reasons not to trust Trump. Many other reasons have been added since then and I thank my blogging friend Joe for his timely post on the current contentious issues surrounding the Trump campaign!

Bibi Netanyahu is a very wise man!

March 8, 2016

I ask visitors here, can you really find any truly logical reason to blame Prime Minister Netanyahu for cancelling his “meeting” with 0bama? Past history has shown 0bama’s constant disrespect for Israel’s Prime Minister and the unconscionable, ill-advised, and disastrous Iran “deal” is most likely the culprit in this scenario.

Israel’s Netanyahu cancels US visit, catching White House off guard.

Excerpt:

A report in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz cited sources close to Netanyahu who claimed “no appropriate time” could be found to hold the meeting. 

The Israeli Prime Minister’s Office said Tuesday that Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. informed the White House last week there was a “good chance” Netanyahu would not make the trip.

An Israeli official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly, told the Associated Press Netanyahu wanted to avoid meetings with presidential candidates.

The unusually pointed pushback from the White House was the latest signal of ongoing tensions between the U.S. and its closest Mideast ally, which have never fully recovered since Obama incensed Netanyahu’s government by pursuing and then enacting a nuclear deal with Iran. The flare-up comes just days before Vice President Joe Biden is set to meet with Netanyahu during a visit to Jerusalem.

This isn’t the first time Obama had been caught off guard by Netanyahu’s travel plans. Last year, the White House accused Netanyahu of a breach of longstanding diplomatic protocol when he announced plans to speak to a joint session of Congress without consulting or notifying the president. Netanyahu used that speech to implore U.S. lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear deal, which Israel sees as emboldening its archenemy.

I do not blame Netanyahu one bit for cancelling (or not accepting in the first place) the visit with the worst pResident in U.S. history!

God forbid that the absolute ungodly ugliness of either of the two Democrat candidates gets into office! America has suffered enough under the 0bama BADministration! We definitely don’t want a repeat of liberal leftist lunacy!  What a disaster it would be to have either the perpetually lying Hillary Clinton or obviously Communist Jew-hating Bernie Sanders !

Dennis Prager (who happens to be a religious Jew) describes in less than five minutes how the runaway liberal leftist policies are there for the purpose of the undoing of the American Revolution.  In this short video, he explains how the far left has undermined our Republic and why either Clinton or Sanders needs to be defeated in the election coming this November!

Prager’s comments:

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – There are two types of people in this world – those who see only the trees and those who see the entire forest. Talk radio host Dennis Prager assured CPAC attendees that he falls into the latter category.

“We have today an undoing of the American Revolution,” Prager said Thursday during a speech on the main stage at CPAC. “I say this without rancor; I say this without exaggeration. The American Revolution’s ideal, especially of small and limited government, is being undermined. The left represents Europe; the right represents the American Revolution. It is a battle between the American Revolution and the French Revolution. It is nothing less than that.”

Prager, a WND columnist, explained that just as Christianity is based on a Trinity, America has a trinity of values as well: liberty, In God We Trust, and E Pluribus Unum. He lamented that Americans have not taught that American trinity to their children.

“The left is undermining all three aspects of the American value system,” he said. “It prefers material equality to liberty.”

He noted 70 percent of millennials, according to one Pew Research poll, don’t want freedom of speech if that free speech might hurt someone’s feelings.

“After 50 years of left-wing indoctrination, people don’t believe in freedom of speech, they believe in the right not to be offended,” he said.

Regarding our national motto of “In God We Trust,” Prager said our nation needs God if it is to maintain a constitutional system of government.

 “I don’t care if you’re a social liberal and a fiscal liberal, or just a fiscal liberal, this country was founded on the belief that freedom was only possible and small government is only possible if people are accountable to a morally judging God,” he declared. “I understand the origins of America were God-centered because either God gives us rights or people give us rights, and there is all the difference in the world.”

Regarding E Pluribus Unum, which means “Out of many, one,” Prager said the liberal doctrine of multiculturalism and the grievance industry are undermining national cohesion.

Do Bernie Sanders Supporters Know About This? (It’s Awful!!!)

March 8, 2016

During a visit to my former blog, I ran across quite a disturbing article about Bernie Sanders at Daniel Greenfield’s Sultan Knish blog:

Sultan Knish blog: Bernie Sanders is not a Jew

Excerpt:

His first and foremost allegiance has always been to the left at the expense of the Jews.

Bernie Sanders cheered the Sandanista regime whose mobs chanted “Death to the Jews,” “Jewish Pigs” and “What Hitler started we will finish.” He did not invoke the Holocaust when a synagogue was firebombed and in an echo of Hitler’s Germany, its president was forced to scrub the streets.

The anti-Semitic regime that Bernie Sanders supported ethnically cleansed the Jewish population of Nicaragua. It marched the indigenous Indian population into churches and set them on fire.

And Bernie Sanders defended the Marxist terrorist regime that was committing these atrocities.

Bernie Sanders was equally enthusiastic about Cuba and the Soviet Union, two other Communist dictatorships that were persecuting the Jews. Sanders did not see fit to invoke the Holocaust on behalf of Jews actually facing anti-Semitic persecution the way that he has invoked it on behalf of Muslims.

But perhaps he thought that, like the other victims of the left, they were getting what they deserved.

When Bernie Sanders went on his visit to the USSR, there were no more concentration camps in Europe, but there were still Jews locked up in the gulags of the Soviet Union. While he was admiring Soviet youth programs, Jewish refuseniks were still being denied permission to leave the Communist dictatorship. 

While American official visitors often met with political dissidents, there is no sign that Sanders did so. It would have been out of character for a man who had justified Communist crackdowns on the opposition to have met with enemies of the regime. For Bernie Sanders, the Sandanistas, Castro and the Soviet Union were models to be emulated and victims of capitalist repression by America, Wall Street and its evil corporations. Much in the same way that Muslim terrorism against Jews is excused today.

Bernie Sanders invokes the Holocaust when asked about his Jewish identity, not because he has empathy for Jews, but in a classic leftist maneuver to distract attention from that lack of empathy. His conception of the Holocaust is detached from Jewish suffering. It is purely about his leftist politics.

Surreally he references the Holocaust only to add that it taught him that politics is “important”. The Holocaust has no Jewish meaning for Bernie Sanders. It merely validates his self-importance.

At a Democratic debate, when asked about the historic nature of the election, he avoided saying that the first Jewish president would be as historic as the first female president. Instead he mumbled that it would be his “views” of “taking on the big money interests” that would make him historic.

Bernie Sanders does not want to be the first Jewish president. He wants to be the first Socialist president. There is nothing Jewish about Bernie Sanders except his vestigial accent. He makes common cause with anti-Semites because Jews don’t matter to him, only the agenda of the left does.

That excerpt is only the last half of the post!  Go HERE TO READ IT ALL!

I wonder whether or not the lefty Millennials (who apparently support him is large numbers) know anything about his past and/or the horrible views he has and the harm that he has done against the Jews and Israel?

He sounds eerily similar to the evil George Soros!

Ugh!!!

My friend Steve at Cry and Howl shared a link to an article that I think would benefit everyone who has been following the election.

American Thinker: ‘Nice’ losers, Nasty Winners in 2016

Excerpt:

The presidential candidate of Midwestern nostalgia, Ohio governor John Kasich*, is a nice man. Unfortunately, the 2016 election cycle is a meat-grinder: equal parts unpredictability and contentiousness, not decency. Therefore, “nice guy” candidates like the highly likable and eminent Dr. Ben Carson, in the same Kasich mold, trail badly in the polls.

In any case, the electorate is disillusioned by the establishments of both political parties, as well as the propagandist, one-sided MSM that carries the Democrats’ swill of half-truths, misleading statements by omission, and outright cover for lies (like Joe Biden’s 1992 “misunderstood” objection to an end-term Republican president making a Supreme Court nomination.)

All under Mr. Obama’s golf-playing watch: 10 trillion in additional debt; almost 8 more years of economic downturn; 93 million able-bodied Americans unable to find employment; Democrats’ pandering to Radical Islam, illegal aliens and Black Lives Matter; Europe awash in 60 million migrants and the Middle East on fire with terrorism. And lest I forget, our pro-Islamic president‘s crowning legacy: the high probability proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East under the control of Iranian ayatollahs.

To any clear thinking person, is it any surprise that everything is “throw the bums out?” (This means you too, House Speaker Paul Ryan, with your “fresh start” 2 trillion dollar budgetary capitulation to Democrats.) In 2016, it takes no genius to realize that voters are fed up to their eyeballs. Consequently, Kasich’s fond Americana of homemade apple pies or “I Love Lucy” reruns is out-of-step with the timbre of the country.

Be sure to read it all! It’s a must read today!

I finally figured out why many evangelical Christians have voted for Trump and will vote for him when the primary hits their states. It’s not only the establishment Republicans the voters are fed up with; but it is also the political “elites,” the Republican Senators and Congressmen who got into office stating their conservative values and intentions (which many sadly backtracked on!), the media of mass deception, or the complete disaster of 0zero and his BADministration.  It is also because voters are fed up with the donor class!

I have been getting so many annoying emails from every candidate except Trump. We all know why he doesn’t need to do that. However, my fear is that Trump would turn out to be another 0bama with an “R” next to his name if he gets into office.

  •  One note of disagreement with the author.  I have heard several times in the past that Kasich puts on an act about being nice in the public eye but he is very foul-mouthed, mean and vindictive behind closed doors.  Here is a comment at the American Thinker site about him:

kentramsay • 5 hours ago

Anybody who says John Kasich is a “nice and authentic man” is completely ignorant of John Kasich. Kasich is a very mean and vindictive man. Shortly after becoming governor John Kasich went against the will of the people and the legislature of Ohio and used “executive authority” (illegal) to cram Medicaid Expansion down the throats of the citizens of a state who had just elected a legislature that had voted this down. Then after doing this brazen act against his own citizens, Kasich worked with union thug money and Chamber of Commerce money to target the state legislators who actually had done right and represented their voters in this matter. Katich essentially targeted every conservative state rep for elimination with campaigns of lies and Alinsky deceptions. Just like the stuff of Trump. Kasich is a liar and a bully and the public crying sensitive metrosexual persona he puts on is a complete act. He is a very bad man.

For I am persuaded…

February 27, 2016

A blogging friend of mine on his private blog recently wrote about the fact that it seems as though politicians need to put on a disguise in order to appeal to the ideology of the voters that they want to attract to their campaign.

In a recent discussion with my 28 yr. old daughter, she told me that she doesn’t like any of the presidential candidates on either side!  However, she hasn’t studied their ideologies or campaigns yet.  I encouraged her to do that.  Sometimes it comes down to choosing the lesser of two evils.

When another celebrity (Arnold S.) ran for governor of California I could not vote for him.  Instead, I voted for Tom McClintock.  Tom didn’t win the election but I have never regretted that particular vote; especially with how horrible Arnold was as governor and the scandals he was involved in.

I have observed over the years that the same need for disguising oneself is often true of judges. We have found that the Supreme Court judges that were nominated and confirmed by Republican presidents in the past have often turned out not to be as conservative as they previously claimed!

Recently I read about a secret meeting between 0zero and Justice Scalia just hours before his death. In another blog thread (need to find it) there was evidence of a “cease and desist” order which threatened against people reporting this or blogging about it!

79% of Americans believe with great certainty that there absolutely was foul play involved! The criminality of this BADministration is so blatantly evil it hurts my heart, mind, and soul to even think about it anymore! What’s more, they don’t even hide their pact with Satan!

WND:
Obama picks side in ‘hail Satan’ abortion fight

Administration to argue on behalf of industry against safety regulations for women

We are certainly in the throes of the end times! The evidence is so clear and all around us! Thank God for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior for we know Who wins in the end!

God’s written Word, the Bible, and God’s Living Word, Jesus Christ comfort us through all the pain and suffering in this fallen world!  Nothing can touch my spirit because Jesus Christ has promised me (as well as all those born-again in Christ) that He will never leave me or forsake me!


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.

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.
