How do we stand with Christ and not stand with politicians? All the Apostles, prophets, and ministers of old taught us how to stand with Christ. None of them taught us how to stand with their national leaders and politicians other than to simply pray for them. Pray we must. Pray specifically that they will follow the law of God, treating everyone with dignity and respect. Also, pray that we will have an open door to share the eternal Gospel with them. We were taught to pray that they would rule righteously so that we, as God’s children could live in peace. We were taught to stand with Christ contrary to what our rulers did or didn’t do. Are we truly standing with Christ today? This is a question that should reach deep into the heart of every professed believer in Christ. This is a question that will haunt every believer who is sitting on the fence trying to stand with their national leaders and Jesus Christ at the same time. This is a question that will drive a deep wedge between true believers and those who are pretending to stand with Christ alone. This is a question that will separate the flock. This is a question that will eventually expose the wolf who has entered God’s vineyard.

How is it in our national interest to send money, some call it blood money, to countries for seemingly humanitarian purposes to have that money enrich its leaders to live in luxury and its military to purchase weapons on the open market? How is it in our national interest to gamble the possibility of having those same rebels who received weapons, training, and money to turn against their own people because of their religious believes or give them the ability to invade another sovereign nation? I am here to say with the loudest voice that I can muster, screaming from the rooftop that it is not in our national interest and must have been written by corrupt politicians. Let’s look at the specifics. Continue reading Corrupt Foreign Policy – (Gaza, Syria, Iraq, and Israel)
What is Truth?
There are many voices coming at you. Everyone’s an expert. There is talk radio, cable news, Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals. Who is telling the truth? We are pulled in many different directions. Maybe it’s because we are listening to the world and not listening exclusively to God. Have you ever noticed that the world typically gives you two choices and then allows you to make a choice? They claim to have given you enough information from both positions to lead you to make the right choice – a choice that you assume is the truth. However, what if it were neither one of the choices? What if it were something completely different? Continue reading What is Truth?
