Choose Sin, Not Consequences

choose sin not consequencesChoose Sin, not Consequences

That is something to think about. It should actually be scary. Every human being has a free will. Every human being has the freedom to choose any sin (sins) that they would like to have in their life and to participate in. Any sin.

Some may say that I choose the lesser sins. The less evil sin. (As if there is such a thing in the eyes of God. The Bible makes it clear that one sin will send you to hell. Actually just being human and not accepting Christ will send you to hell.)
Acts 4:11-12, This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Continue reading “Choose Sin, Not Consequences” »

Are You Willing to Pick Up the Shovel?

god move mountainsAre You Willing to Pick Up the Shovel?

Many times we run into situations in life when we need God to do a miracle. Or at least it appears to us it is going to take a miracle. However, before we ask God to do a miracle, how about us doing our part first.

My experience has been many times individuals are not willing to pick up the shovel to move the mountain. Our God is an all powerful God and He can do amazing things on our behalf. He desires to do miracles in our life because of His love and so that He may be glorified so that others may know of His amazing love. But, He is not a Santa Claus. He is not a God that jumps through our hoops. We must be willing to do our part to move mountains. Continue reading “Are You Willing to Pick Up the Shovel?” »

What Should Americans Do?-Part Eleven

lead people to christWhat Should Americans Do?-Part Eleven
Lead People to Christ

What should American Christians do about the moral decline in America, the antagonism and hatred towards God in America, the threat of terrorism and specifically Radical Islamist, the Middle East Crisis, the racial divides, the overall ‘falling apart’ of our world as we know it?

So far we have said American Christians should:
a. Not do nothing
b. Repent
c. Vote
d. Pray
e. Weep! Be in Anguish
f. Speak Out
g. Walk in Holiness
h. Pray for Revival
i. Don’t Give Up
j. Pray for Mercy
k. Lead People to Christ

As important all of the above is, the most important thing we can do is Lead People to Christ. Our repentance, voting, praying, weeping, speaking out, walking in holiness, praying for revival, not giving up, praying for mercy may or may not stop what is happening in America and the world. What we can be assured of is if we lead people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and disciple them, they can join with us for America, but more importantly they will have eternal life, heaven will be their home instead of this earth. They will have eternal life instead of eternal punishment.

If we want to see abortion changed in America, then win people to Christ who support abortion. If we want to see homosexuality changed, win homosexuals to Christ. The same goes for winning Muslims to Christ. This will not stop all abortions, stop homosexual marriages, stop Islamic terrorists but at least we have done our part. Again, more importantly, there will be people in heaven that would not be otherwise.

You may not be able to win the world, but you can win one. You may not be able to change the world, but you can be a tool to bring change in a life.

Leading someone to Christ is not the end of your responsibility, it is the beginning of your responsibility. The next step is to disciple them. Raise them up to be individuals that live a life of repentance, not ashamed of the Gospel, living a life of holiness.

What would happen if every American did all of the above? God would be glorified. Our nation would honor God again. Of course, most Christians won’t do all of the above. BUT there will be a remnant. Will you be willing to be the remnant?

Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part One 4

choose evil less evilVoting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part One

First off we all know that unless Jesus Christ is running for office, whoever is running for political office is evil because we all fall short of the glory of God and are sinners. Sin is evil. However, most of the time when someone speaks of voting for the lesser two evils, the word evil is used loosely. What is normally meant is that both candidates are not the best choices for the political office, but one of them is the better choice in the mind of the person. Almost always this is going to be the case. Continue reading “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part One” »

Our Responsibility

In our last article we talked about the challenge when there is no clear evidence or option of voting for the lesser of two evils. Both candidates are ‘evil’. What should we do? What is our responsibility? Shouldn’t we as Americans and as Christians vote? Continue reading “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Two” »

Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Three 1

does character matterVoting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Three
Does Character Matter?

In our last article we stated that as Christians we should not vote for candidates that reflect evil. We should vote no in regards to both candidates if both reflect evil. In regards to evil how does character come into play? In other words if one of the candidates running for office appear to have policy positions that line up with Scripture, how much does their character, behavior, words, and attitudes come into play? Should we ignore these factors as long as they support what we support? Continue reading “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Three” »

Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Four 2

no not equal yesVoting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Four
A No Vote is not a Yes Vote.

Some will argue that if a Christian does not make the decision to vote for one candidate (hopefully the lesser of two evils) then they are voting yes for the more evil candidate. First off the assumption is that one of the candidates is a lesser evil (we will be addressing this in our next article:Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump). Second, NO is NO,not Yes!!!!

No is always no and never yes. No plus No is No. No plus No is never Yes. Just common sense tells us that Just logic tells us that. But sadly when it comes to politics many people do not operate out of common sense and logic. They operate out of feelings and emotions and they try to put guilt trips on those who do not vote for their candidate. Continue reading “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Four” »

Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Five 3

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

It should be very clear by now that as an American Christian that if we are confronted with two Presidential candidates that both have evil character traits, behavior, actions, words, that we should not feel the obligation to vote for one of them just because one seems to be the lesser of two evils. We certainly not vote for a candidate that is obviously ‘evil’ just because we think they support our values and political philosophy. One of the main reasons is that a person of evil character absolutely cannot be trusted.

We should not feel the obligation to vote for a candidate that is obviously not a wise choice just because people may try to make us feel guilty for not voting for the candidate. We addressed that in the article titled: Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-A No Vote is not a Yes Vote. Continue reading “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Five” »

Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Six 1

Trump ClintonVoting for the Lesser of Two Evils-Part Six
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump-Both ‘Evil’

Here are the character traits, behaviors, mindsets of both candidates. I would say that after looking sincerely at these two individuals there is not a lesser of two evils. I would say neither are qualified to be President and a Christian should not vote for either. Their vote should be no to both. If there is a qualified Third Party candidate vote for them. Or vote for a write-in. But do not vote for either. Leave the results to God. (Saying all this November is a long way off and who knows how things will end up in November. It may come out that there is a different Democratic candidate than Hillary Clinton-I believe there may be. It may be that Trump has an excellent VP that will balance him out. It may turn out that Clinton becomes so much more evil and Trump becomes less evil that Trump is an option-I don’t see how Clinton can become more evil than she already is and I do not trust anything sincere coming from Trump.)
