This election just gets worse and worse. And everyday Donald Trump says something offensive and so clearly non-Christian that it angers and saddens me that many people who claim to be my brothers and sisters are supporting and defending this man. That is why I am writing this blog.
I also have a YouTube channel AVoiceCrying33. I have been making videos ever since I was saved 8 years ago. It is very interesting watching my walk with God and thinking “did I really think that?”, “wow I can see when things started getting really bad”, and “oh gosh, I forgot that I had that hair style. I did not look good as a bleached blonde.”
I took my YouTube handle from Matthew chapter 3 verse 3. It is about John the Baptist quoting the Prophet Isaiah . And I am not saying that I am anywhere near John the Baptist. I am not even an Amos.
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord. Make his path straight”
I like this verse and I used it as a handle for two reasons. #1 the Internet is a vast wilderness full of porn, angry sarcastic political comments , and funny cat videos. #2 I am angry and upset and saddened by the state of the world and the false church. So I decided to cry out first on YouTube and now in written blog form.
The NIV says calling but I prefer the NKJV translation better. Crying is more descriptive.
Each blog is going to use scripture to show how Donald Trump is not just a danger to our nation but a danger to our faith and a danger to our souls.
I dream of this blog taking off. I dream of a movement. I dream of a third great awakening to rival the one in the mid 1800s. Sometimes my ego does intrude and I think of myself as a modern day Jeremiah, Martin Luther, or Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Some days I fear that if this does take off that I might end up like the last one.
But other times. I am filled with so much anxiety and depression that I get paralyzed and feel like God has abandoned me. Not because He ever would but that’s what I would do if I was God.
Thankfully I am not God. I am just a trying to be humble servant who is a voice crying out in the wilderness preparing the way for the Lord
