“An American Noel”: If Jesus came today, my 2nd favorite Christmas Song.

“An American Noel”: If Jesus came today, my 2nd favorite Christmas Song

My 2nd favorite Christmas song is a folk song by David Carter and Tracy Grammer. This little known song is beautiful in it’s simplicity. It poses a “What if?” What if Jesus was born today?

four in the mornin at the trade winds motel

the register reads all full up and the clerk thinks, just as well

but out in the tool shed by an old coleman lamp

a little family makes its meager camp

The ancient Hebrews believed that the Messiah would be born in a regal family. They didn’t suspect that He was going to be born of a lower middle class working family from Nazareth of all places.

In John 1: 46 Nathaniel asks “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” It would be if the Messiah was born in downtown Detroit or in the Appalachians .

Jesus came to save us all, but he also came to speak up for the oppressed and the poor.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,

because he has anointed me

to proclaim good news to the poor.

He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners

and recovery of sight for the blind,

to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”[f]

When Jesus said this in a synagogue in Nazareth, his hometown, people knew that He was declaring that He was the Messiah. The wealthy and the powerful feared and despised Him. They plotted to kill Him and they did.

I believe that Jesus will return in all of His Glory. I believe that the wicked will be punished, the mourning will smile. The hungry will be fed. But if God decided to try it again, to come to the world in the flesh, he would be called a Marxist. He would be ridiculed on Fox News. Franklin Graham and other religious right leaders would want nothing to do with him. Trump would call Him a loser and his so called Christian supporters would agree.

Things haven’t changed much between 30 AD and now. Technology has advanced. We like to think of ourselves as more civilized but really deep down we are still the same greedy, prideful, sinful people we always were. And there are still the poor and the oppressed who are mocked. There are politicians who rig the system to benefit the wealthy. Just look at the tax monstrosity that Franklin Graham was silent about.

But there are also true believers, those who love God and serve Him and wait on baited breath for Him to return. They are wandering souls who live in the world but don’t really belong. Jesus gave hope to them when He walked the earth. He gives them hope today. I have a wandering soul and Jesus gives me hope and joy . I pray that He returns and returns soon.

and there comes a savior

and a preacher in the park

and he camps with the homeless

where they shiver in the dark

he delivers salvation

to the weary and the cold

and he brings joy, joy, joy to the wanderin soul

he brings joy, joy, joy to the wanderin soul

Wonder What Jesus Thinks About Christmas? :10 Best Christmas Song

I was going to write five blogs on the worst Christmas songs and five of what I think are the best. But there is so much negativity in the world today and I didn’t want to add to it. So I decided to write about my top ten Christmas songs.

Sure I could write about how the brat from “I’m Getting Nuttin’ For Christmas” deserves to get nothing and is symbolic of American youth. I could write about how “Santa Baby” is a song about a woman who is going to offer sexual favors to get what she wants from Santa. Don’t get me started on the Michael Buble “Santa Buddy” version. I could write about how Rudolph teaches a terrible story about only accepting people who are different if they could do something for you. If there was no nasty snow storm, those other reindeer would continue to treat him like Trump treats minorities.

I could also write about how a 1940’s flirtation song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is now the perfect song for today’s sexual molestation and harassment news. I could make a parody using Al Franken, Kevin Spacey, Roy Moore, Harvey Weinstein or Donald Trump.

But I am not. Instead I am going to write about a lesser known folk Christmas song that asks the question, “Wonder What Jesus Thinks About Christmas?”

Every year round this time you get two groups of fundamentalists. Those saying that anyone who celebrates Christmas is a pagan worshipper and those saying that there is a war on Christmas and the secular left is attacking the faith.

First off, yes. The early church co-opted pagan festivals, the Solstice and Mithras celebration as recruiting tools. But I am not worshipping Mithras this season. I am celebrating the fact that God loves us so much that He became one like us as a lowly babe in the manger. Second I don’t think that Jesus cares if we put Christ back in Christmas. I think He cares more about us putting Christ back in American Christianity.

But this song written by Danny Tate does make some very good points, even if it is one of the most depressing Christmas songs ever made.

Some of the lyrics are:

People go in debt this time of year only to regret this time of year. The lonely feel much lonelier, no one to dry their tears. I wonder what Jesus thinks about Christmas?

I am single. I have never had a serious girlfriend. This time of year is tough. It is a time of family. I am blessed to still have my folks, but at 40, it would be nice to have little ones to buy presents for.

But we do make Christmas out to be this big production that more often than not falls flat. It becomes more about gifts, rushing, drinking, loneliness, parties. Christmas has become a commercial holiday. A holiday about consumerism. We consume vast amounts of food and get stomach aches. We buy massive presents and go into debt. We gorge on Christmas TV watching beautiful yet imperfect people learn lessons, some through supernatural means and some not. We listen to Christmas carols but we get numb to it all. I know sometimes I do.

After all the shiny toys have turned to rust. I wonder what Jesus thinks about Christmas?

I don’t think He would like all this hullabaloo. He was a very humble man. I think he would enjoy the sentiment. I think He would cry at the end of It’s a Wonderful Life. I think He would love the “Spirit of Christmas.”, the Spirit Of Love For mankind. This is the Spirit that can transform a miserable old skinflint like Scrooge into one of the best men in Jolly Old England. The Spirit that can make the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes in one day.

Many movies and TV shows talk about the Christmas spirit. But after Christmas there is a let down. With the true Christmas Spirit, there is no letdown. The true Christmas Spirit is the Holy Spirit. One of the greatest gifts that God has given us. Jesus called it the Comforter.

John 14 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

I use the King James Version here because the New International Version uses the word “advocate” but I like Comforter better.

When you give yourself to Jesus, when you allow Him into your heart, He gives you comfort like you have never known.

In this wicked world–a world of greed, a world of hatred, a world that seems to be going insane with an insane leader at the helm–the Holy Spirit is a comfort. It lets me know that things are bad now but they will be OK.

So What would Jesus think about Christmas? I think He would say, “Enjoy the good things. Listen to your Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas CD, eat your cookies, watch Odie give Garfield that back scratcher and Garfield give Grandma those letters, but remember the Christmas season only lasts about 25 days. He is forever and He wants to spend forever with you.

I Wonder What Jesus Thinks About Christmas?

Also some people might consider this blasphemous or sacrilege but I wanted to have the picture for this blog be Jesus dancing the Charlie Brown Snoopy Dance. But I will do one better. This is a sketch that Saturday Night Live did about 20 years ago and it shows Jesus today. Some may consider this blasphemous but some truth can be found in a secular comedy show and I love this and I cried at the end of it just like Jesus and then I danced like Him too.

#4 Weirdest Christmas song: Santa Claus is kinda scary in a Roy Moore sort of way: Santa Claus Scares Me

I know the title is a cheap shot. Roy Moore has not been convicted of a crime. But there is enough evidence that he chased after 14,15,16,17 year old girls when he was in his early 30’s. Calling one of them when she was in Trig class, hitting on Wendy Miller when she was 14 and playing an elf at Gasden Mall. The accusations of Leigh Corfman and Beverly Young Nelson of groping and other forms of sexual misconduct are quite credible, even Mitch McConnell said so.

But back to the song. This song is written and sung by YouTube performer Tessa Netting. She acts as a cute kid with pony tails who is kind of creeped out by Santa Claus.

“Santa Claus Scares me. No I’m not lying. Why does he come into my house when I am asleep. That’s kind of creepy”

If you think about it, the thought of a man invading your house while you and your family are sleeping is kind of disturbing. It reminds me of what Colin Quinn said in anSNL sketch in which he played an ex-con Santa, talking to an irate parent “But, when you think about it, what does Santa do every year but commit a form of home invasion? A very loving and generous home invasion, yes.. but still home invasion.”

“Why does he watch me? Santa’s a stalker”

He knows when you are sleeping. He knows when your awake? I am surprised that most kids are not frightened out by this concept. I guess the idea of gifts might make it less creepy to Children. But if it was anyone else but Santa who watched little boys and girls when they were sleeping, you would call the police.

The letter Netting’s character writes to Santa is hilarious. And singing this while swinging her candy cane like a sword.

“He sees me when I’m sleeping. He knows when I’m awake. I better watch out. I’m going to cry. Don’t come in for goodness sake.”

With all the allegations of sexual misconduct of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, the Olympic gymnastics doctor and yes Roy Moore. This song in a way makes Santa Claus creepier.

The song is pitch perfect. Tessa Netting is great as the little girl. Her facial expressions are hilarious. I would recommend listening to this song this Christmas.

But back to Roy Moore. He scares me even worse than Santa. He is a Bible thumping fundamentalist who wants Christian Sharia Law. Yet he himself possibly molested young teenagers. He may be innocent of the molestation charges. But he did go after them before he was married. He like many single fundamentalist view virtue as a prize. They want an innocent wife that they can mold and then control.

But yet Republicans will still support this man. Even if the allegations are true, they will support him because he is anti-abortion, anti-gay, and for a tax bill that would make the Old Testament prophets scream.

But he is just one man from an ultra conservative State. But I do worry. What if the Moores, the Pences, the rest of the dominionists who want to make America into this twisted Christian “utopia”, What If they get their way?

Now that should scare us.

Don’t spend a Christmas with a Dalek. He will EXTERMINATE them: #5 Weirdest Christmas song

I read that in order to be a successful blogger you have to write, write, and write some more. I have the creativity but lack the discipline. So this Advent I have decided to try to write a blog a day. And in this Christmas season I decided to have a little fun. I will share with the you the readers some of my favorite, least favorite, and strangest Christmas songs and carols and talk about what they mean to me and how they interact with today’s climate.

20 Days till Christmas I will break my blogs into 5. The 5 weirdest and most bizarre Christmas songs, the 5 songs that I hate the most, my 5 favorite Christmas songs, and my 5 favorite Christmas carols. The difference between songs and carols in my mind are that songs are more individualistic and singular and carols are more religious and have been passed on through the generations.

I will continue to write about Donald Trump, Franklin Graham and the religious right. But enough about xenophobic people who play on hatred and fear. I am going to change topics and talk about Daleks.

I am a huge Dr. Who fan. Still David Tennent as the tenth, I guess now the eleventh doctor. And I willu be there to see the thirteenth Doctor team up with the first Doctor. And I will Cry when Robert Capaldi’s Doctor regenerates, I will cry. The Doctor Who Christmas Special has become a yearly ritual.

But in 1964 a year after Dr. Who premiered, the pop band the Go Go’s came up with I’m Gonna Spend My Christmas With a Dalek. It’s a pop song where a couple of teenage girls and a Dalek sing about how happy they are celebrating Christmas.

These are some of the lyrics.

I’m gonna spend my Christmas with a Dalek

and hug him underneath the mistletoe

and if he’s very nice

I’ll feed him sugar spice

and hang a Christmas stocking from his big red toe

And when we both get up on Christmas morning

I’ll kiss him on his chromium plated head

and take him in to say hi to Mum

and frighten Daddy out of his bed

Now everyone knows that the Daleks are genocidal robot monsters created by genocidal mad man Davros of the Planet Skarro. Although this was eleven years since the great Tom Baker’s Genesis of the Daleks. (Yes I am a nerd.) Even during the first Doctor’s time the Dalek’s were monsters.

They wouldn’t want to eat more pudding, they would want to turn the whole family into pudding. But still this song is catchy and I like it. It makes no sense unless this Dalek has a major malfunction.

Also truthfully, the Cybermen scare me more than the Daleks and the Weeping Angels scare me even more. Blink terrified me. But you know what they don’t scare me as much as what our president could do.

Now is 11/9/2016 a fixed point in time? Or could Dr.Who and her, yes her, next companion go back in time and prevent it?

Does God listen to the religious right’s prayers after gun massacres?

Another mass shooting another round of right wing pastors and politicians talking about “thoughts and Prayers” and “it is too soon to do anything.” And this massacre is all the more painful because it occurred in a house of worship.

I am not going to talk much about the gunman here, his motives, the fact that he was a domestic abuser kicked out of the military and shouldn’t have had access to a gun that most people shouldn’t have access to. An A-15 semi-automatic. A gun made to kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time and a weapon that is putting millions and millions in the pockets of the gun manufacturing lobby.

But again, to the prayers. We should pray for the victims. We should pray for those who lost loved ones. We should even pray for the family of the shooter. I am a Christian and I believe in prayer and I have no doubt that the victims are in a better place, a place that I wish I was in right now.

But back to the Ted Cruzes, the Hans Fienes, and all the politicians and pastors who speak of thoughts and prayers and talk about how we are a Christian nation and condemn the wickedness of this world. Back to their prayers. I know this will be controversial but I don’t believe that God listens to their prayers and I have scripture as proof.

Isaiah 1:15

When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood.

Just like ancient Israel. We are a wicked nation. We are a nation where our leaders are bribed by the National Rifle organization. An organization that used to be responsible until the extremists and the gun manufacturing lobby took over in 1977.

HOW MANY MORE. HOW MANY MORE MASSACRES. How many more children have to be sacrificed on the alter of the NRA.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/06/us/texas-church-shooting-victims-list/index.html

Many children were killed, total families destroyed. Could a semi-automatic ban have prevented this, maybe. Maybe not. But that doesn’t mean we should do nothing .

Even if a ban would just save 50 people it would be worth it. 50 mothers, fathers, children, wives, husbands, etc that would not have to go through the agony of never being able to see their loved ones again.

We are Christians. We are commanded to love God with all our heart, soul and strength and love our neighbor as ourselves Matthew 22:36-40

How can we do this while we put a weapon above both God and the lives of our neighbor? And why do we do this? Out of some nebulous thing called freedom? We are a nation that is a slave to the NRA. We have no freedom but with Jesus. And He said “those who raise the sword shall die by the sword.”

The orphans and the widows of gun violence are crying out for a solution or at least for our leaders to do something instead of quoting the party line. Yet all we hear is “our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families”

Empty words without action. Your prayers are worse than saying nothing. Because you bring God info your hypocrisy. Your pockets are full of NRA bribes and your hands are full of blood, just like Isaiah said.

No other Christians in the world have a love affair with guns. Only in America this idolatry reigns. It sickens me. You may ask who is Hans Fiene? He is a pastor and writer for the Federalist who wrote an article about God and the shooting and how prayers are answered.

My next blog will be taking his article apart.

It is not easy to be a Christian. We have atheists who attack us as heartless hypocrites and we have heartless hypocrites who prove them right. Thankfully we have true Christians who speak up against those who take bribes and search after gifts.

If I was alone I would beg Jesus to take me now, but no, there is work to do. We must speak up for those who can not because they were killed.

The Ex Agnostic and the Actor: a film starring Kevin Sorbo

I have an idea for a movie. It is about a lapsed Catholic who left the church because of the sex scandal. A man who suffered from severe anxiety and depression. A man who considered himself a loser who hated himself and the world.

A man who would not come to Christ because he saw a hypocritical church. A church that cared more about money and politics than anything else. But during the 2008 election, he saw Sarah Palin. He thought how can there be a good God who would allow so many people to support tax cuts for the wealthy, and mock the working poor, and support unjust unpayed Wars etc.

He writes 10 of the top evangelical Leaders asking them how they can support politics that go against scripture. But then a minister from the Saddleback Church contacts him and this man realizes that he was not angry at God but at man. And he prays and God leads Him to a Christ centered church. He sees a Pastor talking about how you could be evangelical or social justice based but you are serving God. That only through Christ we can have healing both individual and societal.

The film’s hero became born again. He felt the Holy Spirit overcome him and he became a follow of the one living Christ. But he realized that he almost gave up an opportunity to know God because of the wickedness of hypocritical men. And how these wicked men block people from the Kingdom of Heaven and make these converts twice the children of Hell as they are.

So he tries to bring atheists to the faith and to bring these lost apostates back to Jesus. He watched a great movie called What If? One of the best movies he has ever seen. A movie staring Kevin Sorbo of Hercules fame. An actor that this man enjoyed since he first saw him as a suspected stalker on an episode oThe Commish and as a nerdy computer programmer on an episode of Murder She Wrote.

It is A great movie about a Trump like businessman who is greedy but due to a miracle wakes up married to his high school sweetheart with kids and a pastor of a small church. By the end of the film this lost soul is a born again believer. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1468387/?ref_=nv_sr_3

Our hero’s faith is as strong as ever. So he decides to seek out the actor on social media and finds out that the actor is just like all the politicians and religious leaders that kept him blocked from God. At the same time, he is hanging out with some of his friends who happen to still be atheists who hate Christianity for the very same reasons that this man did and they make fun of stupid movies. They watch a terrible movie about FDR attacking Japanese and German werwolves. A movie that has FDR saying “Does my cock still work?” And has his secretary licking condiments off of FDR’s polio paralyzed legs. And while this man is watching this horrid piece of drek, he sees the actor, the star of What If? Playing a stoned Abraham Lincoln in a dream sequence where FDR is stoned. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1811315/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

This insenses our main character so he makes a YouTube video directed to Kevin Sorbo. This is in fall of 2014. https://youtu.be/STyZdjvpC-s

In 2015 a wicked man runs for president, a man who starts his presidency with a slanderous attack against Mexicans. The election gets worse and worse. His fellow Christians couldn’t vote for this man could he? We have Kasich, a decent man running against a wicked woman. They would support him right? Kevin Sorbo wouldn’t support Trump? A man who attacked a POW, a man whose all campaign was based on fear and hatred.

But somehow neither the son of a president nor John Kasich, the candidate this hero of the film voted for got the nomination but a wicked man who stands for everything that Jesus stood against. So our hero makes another video entitled “Kevin Sorbo: Be a Hero Of Faith” in September of 2016 https://youtu.be/Oaz-1g3ymzc

And in October of 2016 a tape comes out with the wicked man bragging about him chasing after a married woman and talking about “grabbing them by the pussy”.

Even with a wicked woman running, they wouldn’t vote for him would they? This Actor. This man with a film that says “God’s Not Dead” would not support a man such as Trump could he? Trump is pre saved Ben Walker on steroids, at least Ben Walker never grabbed women’s genitalia in the movie.

But Trump did win. And this actor continued to support this president. He continued to promote atheistic economic policies. He continued to practice this twisted nationalistic Christianity and every post broke our hero’s heart. The election and the aftermath almost was enough to make this man lose his faith. But even a thread of faith in Jesus Christ is stronger that Damascus Steel. So he continues to make videos and blogs opposing the religious right. A crusade to bring Franklin Graham and Kevin Sorbo back to the light.

He posts one more video in March of this year. https://youtu.be/svOe88bn_xw

So this man continue to try to communicate with this actor via Facebook and Twitter trying to get him to fight for Christ instead of for the opposite of Christ. All the while being attacked by his followers.

How will this movie end? Will the actor realize the error and admit and speak out against the lies and to be an inspiration to agnostics and atheists like the film’s protagonist was? Will Kevin Sorbo use his prophetic voice for good? Will he help bring both the atheists and the apostates back to Christ or will he be just like any other false prophet?

I am praying for the former because I am a Christian and I believe in miracles and happy endings.

So “God’s Not Dead”, “What If?”, and “Let There Be Light” how bout “The Ex Agnostic and the Actor for your latest production? It would be an honor to work with you to show the world that GOD IS NOT DEAD. It will be an honor to show the world WHAT IF? We fight for justice and become the City on the Hill again what will God do with us? And then in this nation full of darkness. A nation where a president symbolizes hate, fear, and lies. We can start a revival to rival the 2nd great awakening and then LET THERE BE LIGHT

Let’s do it Kevin Sorbo. Let’s make a feel good movie.

The Paralyzation Factors of Fear and Laziness

I am a Christian. I also suffer from severe anxiety and depression. I don’t know if that is my curse. That with my empathy comes depression and with my creativity comes anxiety.

I don’t know. All I do know is that if a demon came to me and said that he could take away all my anxiety, fear, and depression but I would lose my empathy and creativity, I would say “get behind me Satan”.

But the problem remains. I have these two things. I know God tells me not to worry. He tells me that He loves me. He tells me not to fear because everything will turn out well in the end. But yet I still find myself paralyzed with fear, doubt, and depression.

It got so bad I had to put myself into a halfway house the week after the inauguration. I have done a lot in my ministry. I have sent letters to newspapers in the primary states. I have made videos pleading with the voters of states not to lead us to this point. I walked out of a Ted Cruz town hall meeting with both my head and my Bible held high.

I made more videos. I preached at the Capital. I know I am only one man. But it is very discouraging. So what do I do, I find comfort in TV and my projects.

I know I watch too much tv. These are only the first run shows that I watch on a regular basis. The Simpsons, Elementary, Supergirl,24 Legacy,  Timeless, Legends of Tomorrow, NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, Law and Order SVU, Supernatural, and Saturday Night Live. That is 11 hours of TV and that is not counting the shows I watch that are in reruns.

When I am not doing that I am working on projects like trying to find out how many Twilight Zone actor says are still alive using IMDB. Or making huge musical parody lists on YouTube.

These things comfort me. It is a drug for me. I still pray. I still listen to the Daily Audio Bible podcast, I volunteer with my church, I hang out with friends.

But lately when I try to do Kingdom work, I feel paralyzed. The world is so big. It is so dark. This administration is so bad. There is no love, there is no peace, there is no kindness, only hate and fear.

So I retreat back into TV and my projects. I have made videos, I have written letters, I have preached. I still believe that God wants me to fight for His kingdom. To be a voice in the wilderness. A voice that shows an unbelieving world that the 2TimothyTrump style of Christianity is an apostasy.

I want to help start Christian protests around the nation speaking up for the refugees being turned away, the families that are being ripped apart by ICE agents. I want to speak up against those that chose money over God while still talking about how “America is a Christian nation” on TV.

But how to go about that I have no idea. I am the type of guy that give me a task and I will go and do my best. But I feel aimless and without direction.

My church is starting a group seeing what we can do as Christians protecting those who are hurt by 2TimothyTrumpsm.

Well I am going to leave it here. The Simpsons episode where the Simpsons go to Boston is almost on.

Donald Trump an Antichrist? 2 John 6-8

In this blog I am not going to go into Revelation or into end times theology. Donald Trump could be the anti-Christ foretold in Revelation or the anti-Christ could be a man named Zapp Dax from the year 2876. I am not going to go Into that. I am a pre-millenialist that means that I do take Revelation literal and I do believe that there will be a man who epitomizes all that is wrong with humanity and will lead many in a final battle between good an evil.

Here is a joke for those who like Eschatology That is end times theology. I am a generation Xer, that means I am a pre-millennial. The generation that is being born right now is post-millennial. And if we see a person in his or her 20s they are a Millennial.

Anyway. I do believe that Donald Trump is an anti-Christ. Anti means either against or opposite.

2 John 6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.(notice that Trump walks in many things but he never walks in love)

7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

They may believe in the Christ. But they don’t believe Jesus the Rabbi and the Christ who died for our sins are the same people. The religious right act like Jesus was born and then went to the last supper and was crucified and then rose again. They do not believe that Jesus walked the earth teaching us sinful humans how to be better people. He taught us to be what we were supposed to be before the fall. I believe that we can’t do that without the Holy Spirit guiding us.

But they never quote Jesus’ teachings. They quote the Old Testament, the epistles, and Revelation but they rarely use His words. He who taught us not to serve money. He who taught us to love our enemies. He who taught us that we must live by love,truth, and faith. They quote none of this. They deny Jesus daily in what they say and what they do.

And Jesus’ own words from John 14 23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

Logic dictates. If don’t follow His teachings. they don’t love Him. Therefore they do not love and serve Him but a false Christ. An anti-Christ. A Christ that wants you to hate your enemies. A Christ that wants you to favor the rich over the poor. A Christ that wants any Tom Dick and Harry to buy a semi-automatic.

This is not Christ. This is the opposite of Christ. This is anti-Christ. Is there any person on earth that is a better example of the Spirit of the anti-Christ than Donald J. Trump? Jesus is humble, Trump is proud. Jesus loves His enemies, Trump slanders them. Jesus told the rich young man to give up all of his belongings. Trump’s whole life has been about accumulating wealth.

Now will Trump win in November? Will he become a terrible dictator? Will he form an alliance with 9 other neo-fascist nations? Will he start a persecution that will be even worse than Hitler’s? Will he decide that He is God and demand that everyone worships him?

I don’t know. But I do know this. Even if he isn’t THE antichrist. He is a antichrist. And our nation, the world and my faith can not afford an antichrist as the leader of the free world.

Do Not Throw Your Pearls Before Trolls:Matthew 7:6

I have an addiction almost as invasive and almost as damaging as my struggles with porn. This addiction is political online debate.

On Facebook I follow Kevin Sorbo, Franklin Graham, and about a dozen other Christian sites. By and large most of them are nothing but attacking Hillary and praising Trump. I don’t have as much of a problem with the former but a I do with the latter.

So I go on those pages showing them the scriptures that I base my argument on. They are Matthew 5-7, Galatians 5, and 2 Timothy 3. There are many more but they are the most succinct. They don’t care. They don’t want to read my scripture and question what they are doing. It is like talking to a brick wall.

I do so hoping and praying that just one who sees my posts will leave this death cult of American Fasicst Christianity. But they don’t. They just attack and attack.

Another thing that really bothers me about the site other than the very unChristian posts is that when they talk about sin. It is sexuality all the time. Like we are supposed to be the sexual moral police. But they never talk about the oppression of the poor. They never talk about economic immorality. They don’t talk about the rampant gun violence, they don’t talk about creation care. All they talk about is homosexual this and transgender that.

One of the main reasons why I have come over on the pro gay marriage side is because those who are most against it. Those who take the Bible literally without historic context when it comes to sex abandon their literal interpretation. It is the hypocrisy that I can’t stand.

This is not healthy for me. Jesus knew that. It takes energy to evangelize the faith. It takes energy to do God’s Kingdom work. So don’t waste that enemy on people who will just trample on  everything you say like swine trample of the pearls in the parable.

So if I am giving up on talking to those who are lost but are filling their hole with hate, fear, and self righteuous judgement. I will contact my brethren. The mainstream churches. These are the churches that I believe can make a change. All we have to do is get off our buts and fight the power, the powers that be.

Sorry for going Public Enemy. But this anti-Christ spirit. This counterfeit  Christianity of fear, hate, pride, and lies has to be fought and has to be fought hard. By the real Christians fighting fear with faith, Hate with love, pride with humility, and lies with the Truth of God.

Many of the fundamentalists may be lost. But there are many seekers. Many atheists who view this anti-church as the true church. If we do this right, with God’s help we could lead thousands home.

 

Matthew 7:6
6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
