  1. White evangelicals… not black. There's a difference. Black evangelicals are the polar opposite. They both overwhelmingly democratic not because they believe it everything they say or do but because they believe that the social issues I'm more important than one single issue like evangelicals from the white race. Most black people are against abortion but they also understand without structure to take care of the families what are you going to do. Black evangelicals take care of the Here and Now not what the future may or may not hold. There's an understanding that people are hungry now people are homeless now people need bills paid now people need daycare now. That's why they vote democratic, Democrats are for the programs that are needed to take care of your poor and unhealthy. Republicans are against it but they still want you to bring children into the world that they are unwilling to take care of. They are willing to sell their souls to the devil for a dollar as long as they don't have to pay taxes.

  2. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

    But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

    I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

    Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 1 John 2:18-23

  4. American evangelical christianity is, first and foremost, a political cult. It bears very little resemblance to any form of Christian practice elsewhere in the world, which stems largely from the fact that early American preachers had to careful repackage the bible for a nation of slave owners; unsurprising, since the bible is, in essence, the story of a slave rebellion.
    As a result American evangelical christianity all but ignores traditional Christian ideology about fairness, compassion, love, tolerance and forgiveness, and concentrates on a politically motivated conservatism which has little or nothing to do with any theological source. The blonde, blue-eyed "guns, hate and shame" Jesus of American evangelicalism is a cultural/political construct entirely distinct from the Jesus of the New Testament.
    At it's heart American evangelical christianity is a political movement dedicated to the furtherance of white supremacy, unfettered profiteering and extreme social conservatism…it exists in a cultural bubble and has very little to do with actual religious practice as known by the majority of practicing Christians worldwide.

  5. If Christianity means loving God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and loving your neighbor as yourself, then people of both political persuasions do not adhere to Christ's core doctrine of sacrificial love.

    Is it God's will for his servants to get involved in politics?

    What does the word politics mean? According to the Royal Spanish Academy, it has its meaning in: said of a person; who intervenes in government affairs and state affairs.

    What surprises me the most is, to see the manipulation of leaders not only politicians but now also within our churches, who seek to please the 86 million members belonging to Protestant churches in the United States, without a doubt the one that manages to sweeten the ears of his future voters will be guaranteeing his electoral victory, even if his real agenda is VERY DIFFERENT from his political campaign promises.

    But nevertheless God tells us in Jeremiah 17: 5 "Cursed is the man who puts his trust in man." God's word is very clear about not getting involved in politics; And especially, to those who received a call from God. The word of the Lord says: "No one who militates becomes entangled in the affairs of life, in order to please the one who took him for a soldier." 2 Timothy 2: 4.

    Jesus teaches us that we have to be obedient to governments and, at the same time, fulfill their obligations to God.

    As true Christians that we are, we should not take parties or positions in politics, if we believe that everything and absolutely everything happens because God allows it, because even bad things work for good and our attitude and our example of life must be testimony and an example to the world.

    In the same way that God allowed a people to be able to choose between a criminal or an innocent who was condemned on the cross for our sins, in the same way that God makes known to us that there will come a day when Satan will rule in the earth, and he will allow it … so we should also put our eyes and our trust in the will of God. We cannot serve two masters at the same time … want to please God and flirt with the world as many "Christian Leaders" are doing.

    We are Christians, let's imitate Jesus.

    Jesus said “My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight …; But my kingdom is not from here." So our kingdom is not part of this world, let's stop fighting and sowing weeds, when we should be looking for more of the presence and communion of our creator, depending, trusting and accepting that at all times his will, not the will of man, will prevail. .

    Although we respect our rulers by divine mandate, Christians should stay away from politics.

    No political party has the market cornered in Christian beliefs and, despite religious rhetoric on each side, the greatest interest in each contestant IS ONLY THEIR POLITICAL CAREER they love politics more than GOD and to achieve their election they are capable of disguise their true intentions and defame even their own mother in order to achieve their purposes and achieve support.

    So we should not be surprised at all the maneuvers they make to win political backing.

    Political parties are tasked with many things, but carrying out the Gospel is not one of them. However, Christians continue to fall into the sinful temptation to limit the practice of their faith in accordance with their political beliefs and are often only willing to follow Jesus to the point where it agrees with their partisan ideologies.

    Followers of Christ must realize that the Kingdom of Heaven will never be fully realized through worldly governments or carnal politics, but rather through the love of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. And according to the Bible, we can tell what the fruits of this kind of godly kingdom are like: joy, peace, happiness, self-control, charity, grace, forgiveness, justice, hope, and love.

    Should Christians vote for the lesser of "the two" evils? Not.

    In the same way that a candidate is associated in some kind of depraved activity; Hatred, abuse, corruption, contempt, racism, pride, arrogance and the use of sacred things in vain as blasphemy to God, are not exactly "A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT"

    Jesus was neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and surprisingly he distanced himself from the political institutions and movements of his day. Jesus was persecuted, arrested, tried, and finally tortured on a cross for refusing to submit to the laws of government authorities.

    The first generations of Christians were similarly murdered and martyred for refusing to abandon the Gospel for any kind of political cause or authority, remaining faithful to Jesus, despite having to sacrifice literally everything.

    That is why we must never allow our faith to be overshadowed by politicians, political systems, or the myopic motivations they represent, because the way of Jesus is better than any policy. Christians are called to put God first over EVERYTHING: This includes elected officials, political parties, laws, and even our own interests. Doing this is often irrational and almost always counter-cultural, but this is what it means to be a true follower of Christ.

    POLITICAL PROMISES OR MANIPULATIVE STRATEGIES OF MANY POLITICIANS ARE SOMETIMES INTERPRETED AS TRUE MIRACLES. BUT NOT EVERYTHING THAT REFERS TO MIRACLES POINTS ONLY TO HEALING AS WE SEE IT IN THE MIRACLE WHERE WATER IS CONVERTED INTO WINE BY JESUS.

    "When that Man of Evil comes, it will be the work of Satan. He will come with great power and will perform all kinds of false miracles"

    2 Thessalonians 2: 9-12

    God gives men the leaders they deserve as judgment so that we are not a country that can be judged, but in fact we are a country that has already been judged!

    The bible teaches us in the gospel of the apostle John about the Spirit of God and the spirit of the antichrist in 1 John 4: 1 it says "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits if they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. "

    The mere fact that Trump portrays himself with a bible, attends church, talks about Christ, and signs laws or treaties that in any way favor the church does not make him a true born-again Christian in the spirit, after a genuine repentance, much less all this qualifies him to call himself as he did on television "The Chosen One of God" Also the apostle Matthew alerts us according to the gospel in Matthew 7: 15-20 That by their fruits we will know these wolves in disguise of sheep. It is useless for someone to pretend in front of others to be someone they are not.

    In the Apostle Paul's epistle to the Church of Galatians 5: 16-21 he tells us about the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. You can find in verse 20 onwards the following words that characterize the works of the flesh; "Enemies, Lawsuits, Jealousy, Wrath, Struggles, Dissent" Then to add to this he tells us the word of God in Proverbs 6: 16-19

    "Six things the LORD hates, And seven things abominate his soul: The haughty eyes, the lying tongue, The hands that shed innocent blood, The heart that devises wicked thoughts, The feet in haste to run to evil, The false witness that speaks lies, he who sows discord among brothers. " Do you think that because you go to church, or because you appear to believe in God or to be a Christian / or you really are? If when leaving church you treat others with contempt, humiliation, indifference or anger? Someone calling himself God's chosen one cannot speak or behave as Trump does.

    Finally, in the same verse of Galatians 5: 22-23 the apostle Paul tells us what are the true fruits of the presence of God in the life of a human being, these are; "Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance." Sorry, but as much as I try to be fair, I can't find any of these qualities in Trump.

    The second commandment says; you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain; for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. Exodus 20: 7

    I recommend everyone to seek more of God through his word, so that he can give you the gift of discernment.

    God's peace be upon you, Blessings!

  6. Those “innocent door knocker” signage are ANYTHING but innocent. They are a clear violation and every church that uses them or any other avenue to promote their political ideology, such as “brunches, “ ought to loose their tax-exemption status. Period. This country isn’t drowning in a swamp…it’s drowning in scum.

  7. Evangelical Christian Right is such an oxymormon, like they aren't even really Christian just some misinterpreted cult of Westernized Jesus and technically they can't be right, if you submit yourself to another higher authority you are still under some autocratic government.

  8. Religion has no place in our government other than that stated in our secular Constitution. We Americans will not stand quiet for an overturning of our country to a theocratic authoritarian government to any religion. Freedom of religion is the right of everyone, and the fallacy the Christians don't appreciate that right already is nonsense. The Bible actually promotes abortion in 10 places. One of those actually says that that a woman injured who looses a child must pay here husband money to pay for the loss of his property. Digest that. The entire Old Trstiment probes that God is definitely not pro-life. The history of religious atrocities have followed those straight into our current history. Wise up. I see this attempt to turn America into a Christian State no different than the power grabs of ISIS and the Taliban, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. This Evangelical power grabs intent of our country is hypocrisie and religious intolerance; a quest for power over others and monetary gain for their hierarchy. As I said in the beginning Americans, true Americans who cherish our Constitution and have sworn to protect it from enemies both foreign and Domestic, will not accept an intollorant theocratic authoritarian overthrow of our country. It's unacceptably un-American, and insurrection.

  9. Religion is not the problem, but when religion takes the place of reason, and when people start saying my religion is better than yours that’s what is problematic.

    Same goes for ultra left also!
