I Like Your Christ, But Not Your Christians

Do You Know A Hypocrite?

I think we’d be surprised to know how many people in this  actually like the person of  Christ, but aren’t keen on becoming a . Sound familiar?

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another. Romans 12:10.

We must not allow ourselves to become self-absorbed and so forget the claims of God and humanity upon us…. God would have us more kind, more lovable, less critical and suspicious. O that we all might have the Spirit of Christ, and know how to deal with our brethren and neighbors!

We must forget self in loving service for others…. We may not remember some act of kindness which we do, it may fade from our memory; but eternity will bring out in all its brightness every act done for the salvation of souls, every word spoken for the comfort of God’s ; and these deeds done for Christ’s sake will be a part of our joy through all eternity.

When we pursue toward our brethren any course save that of kindness and courtesy, we pursue an unchristian course. We should manifest courtesy at home, in the church, and in our intercourse with all men. But especially we should manifest compassion and respect for those who are giving their lives to the cause of God. We should exercise that precious love that suffereth long and is kind; that envieth not, that vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked and that which is not evil.

Where Jesus reigns in the heart, there will be sweet love, and we shall be tender and true to one another.

You should give no occasion for faultfinding. A moment’s petulance, a single gruff answer, the want of Christian politeness and courtesy in some small matter, may result in the loss of friends, in the loss of influence.

God would have you appear at your best under all circumstances—in the presence of those who are inferior to you as well as in the presence of equals and superiors. We are to be followers of Christ at all times, seeking His honor, seeking to rightly represent Him in every way.

Let self drop out of sight, and let Jesus appear as the One altogether lovely.

We should seek to live for His glory alone, not that men may praise us.

Trump: Dangerous Idiot—President Mike Pence: Dangerous Hypocrite? #2 Of 2

President Mike Pence: Dangerous Hypocrite?

(Part 2 Of 2)

 

On August 6th I wrote an article titled ” If Our President is Found Guilty Of Treason: Then What” That article is part one of this two-part letter to you. As a lot of you know, that by our Constitution the answer to that question is, the Vice President, Mike Pence becomes the President. Many folks that are hooked to this blog as well as people that I personally know have told me that in their opinion Mike Pence is more dangerous than Donald Trump. Personally I have though that these folks couldn’t be right, could they? So, I started digging for more information on our possible next President, for your knowledge, and for mine. The rest of this letter to you is information that I have gleamed off of various news agencies, I will document them for you as I go along.

In 1998 when Mike Pence was a radio host in Indiana he argued that a President could be removed from office on “Moral grounds” when he was referring to President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Now that he is Donald Trump’s Vice President he has changed his opinion on this matter. There is no way that Mr. Pence can say that he was unaware of Mr. Trumps morals when he was asked to be Trumps running mate. Politics and big dollars make many folks change their religious ideologies, it looks like Mr. Pence is one of those folks.

During this time that he was a radio host Mr. Pence said that a President needed to be held to a higher moral standard than “our next door neighbor.” He argued that the ‘First Family’ must be role models for the rest of the country and the world.

Their headline was “Is Mike Pence Really A Hypocrite?”

 

Mr. Pence detailed how President Clinton had broken the law by lying to the Grand Jury which is Perjury and Perjury is a Felony in the U.S. Legal System. He said that Presidents that commit perjury should resign or be impeached.

10 Things we should know about Mike Pence’s political views and his religious beliefs. You may agree with some of his thoughts just as I did agree with a couple of his views from a Biblical view-point. Then again, you may agree with or disagree with all of them, I did not cherry pick the information given in an attempt to swing an opinion in either direction.

1.) Pence didn’t want women in the military. In 1999 a woman in the military fell in love with another soldier and he used this as his basis for his view-point.

2.) In 2000 Mr. Pence wrote an op-ed in which he said “smoking doesn’t kill”. He said this as he was taking money from big tobacco companies for his Congressional campaign. In 2016 during the Presidential Campaign he reworded his view-point to “smoking isn’t good for you.”

3.) While running for Congress in 2000 Mr. Pence wrote on his website that money funding research for HIV/AIDS should be moved to fund ‘Conversion Therapy” “Which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.”

4.) Mr. Pence told ‘The Hill Newspaper’ in 2002 that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he doesn’t attend events that serve alcohol without her. He has been blasted in some circles for being unfair to women, excluding them from important meetings saying that he is anti women because of this ‘moral’ policy. Personally I Agree with this policy from a religion stand point and from an ‘I love my wife’ stand point, but that is just me and my being old-fashioned.

5.) During his 12 years as a Congressman Mr. Pence co-sponsored multiple pieces of legislation for a “Federal Shield Law” which would have allowed reporters to keep confidential sources secret, even if the government requested those sources. Now, as Donald Trumps VP he is against this legislation.

6.) Mr. Pence in 2006 cited a Harvard researcher in remarks where he declared that same-sex marriages would bring about a “social collapse” in America.

7.) In 2011 Congressman Pence authored a bill to completely defund Planned Parenthood and he signaled that he was willing to prompt a government shut down in order to pass this bill.

8.) In a bid to limit abortions, Mr. Pence in 2011 sought to change when Federal funds for abortions could be used. The current stature was applied in cases of rape or incest. Mr. Pence wanted to change the term “rape” to “force-able rape.” Folks, I have a question for you, when is “rape” not force-able? If rape is not forced upon a person then isn’t it considered to be consensual sex?

9.) While Governor of Indiana Mr. Pence signed the “2015 Religious Freedom Restoration Act” which was meant to allow businesses in the state of Indiana to cite religious beliefs as a reason to refuse services to members of the LGBTQ community.

10.) While Governor of Indiana Mr. Pence was blamed for a HIV crisis in his State after he moved to slash funding for Planned Parent-hood in 2011. A local Planed Parent-hood facility had to close in 2013 because of the spending cut. That facility was the only HIV testing center in Scott County which faced a deepening drug use problem that was believed to have hastened HIV out breaks.

“The danger of having a President Pence, Trumps critics yearn for his exit, but, Mike Pence is the ultimate Corporate Inside Man who poses his own risks.”

Bannon: “Pence is the outreach guy, the connective tissue between the Trump Administration and the most conservative wing of the Republican establishment.” Mr. Bannon also says that “Mr. Pence would be a President that the Koch brothers would own.” “Pence’s political career through-out has been sponsored at almost every turn by the same donors whom Trump has assailed. Pence is the inside man of the conservative money machine.”

 

“On Election Night of 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Mid-town Manhattan in an upstairs Suite above the Ball-room there was an even more VIP that existed. Doug Deacon, a Texas businessman and a political donor told me that ‘it was amazing.’ In the VIP reception area alone I counted at least 8 or 9 billionaires.” Deacon said “he’s (Pence) really the contact to the big donors. Deacon said, that since the election I have attended two dinners for the wealthy backers at the Vice-Presidential residence. If Pence were to become President, the Government would be run by the Koch brothers-period. Pence has been their tool for years.”

I had a meeting with Mikes mother (Nancy Pence Fritsch) and she said to me “the family identifies as Catholic, and Mike was an Alter-boy. Religion is the most important thing in our lives, she said.” “But we don’t take it seriously.”

In Mikes Congressional Campaign he used personal donations toward personal expenses such as his mortgage and groceries. This wasn’t illegal, but it violated the trust of his supporters and sullied his “Pious” image. He upset a lot of his backers. It was partly because of immaturity, but he really was kind of full of shit. He comes across as Mid-western nice, but he is mean and shallow.”

 

In 1999 Mr. Pence took a job offer as President of the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, a tiny new ‘think tank’ that promoted free-market policies. They were known for being anti-union. They also opposed health, safety and environmental regulations. Also, because he was taking campaign contributions from big tobacco companies Mr. Pence said in 2000 that smoking doesn’t kill people. He said that a greater scourge than cigarettes was “big government disguised as do-gooder, healthcare rhetoric.”

Mr. Pence served in the Congress for 12 years yet he never, not once, authored a single successful bill. He was against George W. Bush’s expansion of Medicaid coverage for prescription drugs and the “no child left behind” program. Once Barack Obama was elected President Pence he became the early voice of the ‘Tea Party.”

Pence sponsored an unsuccessful amendment to the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) that would have made it legal for government-funded hospitals to turn away a dying woman who needed an abortion to stay alive.

Pence calls “Global Warming” a myth. He may well feel this way because the Koch Brothers own several coal-fired power plants and oil refineries which release some 24 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year. He voted against putting a tax on company’s carbon emissions. Carbon dioxide is said by most scientist to be the biggest reason for global warming. This tax would have cost the Koch brothers millions of dollars each year. It was after this bill failed to pass in the Senate that Mr. Pence became the “Koch’s guy” and they have been showering him with money ever since.

“that Pence has a fatal flaw, he is to political and ideological, his focus is always on the next step up, not on his job at hand.

Pence brags about how good the state of Indiana was doing for the people financially yet when he left office Indiana ranked 38th in individual income.

Source: Michael Maurer, the owner of the Indianapolis Business Journal who is a Republican said in reference to Pence 

“It, his hypocrisy, just exploded in his face. His poll numbers were terrible. I bet he’d never get elected in Indiana again. But he went from being a likely loser as an incumbent governor to the V.P. of the U.S. but Indiana is still reeling from having him as our governor.”

Well folks, I think I now know a good bit more about why people from Indiana have been telling me how dangerous Mike Pence would be as our next President. I now see why so many people call him a hypocrite, a fraud, and dangerous. Most of the time I have associated the word hypocrite with something to religion yet in reality I associate it with a person who says one thing and does another. To me, a person who claims to be a Christian who worships money and human power over others, which also means they are also lying, is the worse kind of hypocrite and it appears to me that this definition fits Mike Pence quite well. Think back to the statement of his Mother about religion and I quote “religion is the most important thing in our lives, but we don’t take it seriously!” Just think about that statement, the most important thing in your life, but you don’t take that most important thing seriously, whew, what a ringing endorsement for the quality of a person, and by his Mother no less.

 

 

 

So, Ted Cruz In Total Desperation Plays “The Woman Card” With Carly Fiorina

 

So, the Texas hypocrite and habitual liar Ted Cruz has chosen a woman to be his running mate, how pathetic, how desperate. Senator Cruz trying to jolt some life into his campaign has chosen former Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina to be his Vice Presidential running mate. If you remember Ms. Fiorina when she had to drop out of the race a couple of months ago was only poling around 1%. Mr. Cruz out of obvious desperation is trying to take female voters away from Mr. Trump and Mr. Kasich in these few remaining primaries, still hoping to keep Mr. Trump below the 1,237 delegate total so that there can be a contested Convention this summer. He thinks that if Mr. Trump can not win on that first ballot that he can still steal away the Republican nomination. One thing that I don’t hear the talking heads on TV mentioning is that if Mr. Trump does not win on the first ballot that he can win on the second ballot and that having a woman on his ticket will help him. I have a question for you, why do you think Governor Kasich is still in this contest? Governor Kasich is still in this race for that same reason, hoping for a contested convention. Think about the reality of that situation, if no gets the nomination on the first ballot we all know that the delegates will not vote for Mr. Trump yet if that happened, there is no reason that the ‘unbound’ delegates would then turn to Cruz as there best option. Unbound delegates would much more likely vote for Governor Kasich simply because most everyone hates the ground Ted Cruz walks on, they will not give him the nomination. Mr. Cruz is also trying to persuade the RNC that with Ms. Fiorina as his running mate that they are the best choice to confront and beat Hillary Clinton in the election November 1st. Obviously this article is just the opinion of one old man but I do believe that I am correct on these issues, what do you think of this opinion about Mr. Cruz and his weaknesses such as putting a very much not liked Ms. Fiorina on his ‘ticket of hate’?

Hopefully Mr. Trump Is Indeed The End Of The Tail That Has Been Waging The Dog

THIS IS A COPY PASTE FROM THE REAGAN REPORTS!  (My personal comments are just below this article, please read that paragraph also. I do agree and I do disagree with what is being said in Mr. Reagan’s report, please check my comments out at the bottom also.)

Donald Trump News
Lindsey Graham: Donald Trump Could Spell End of GOP

Sen. Lindsey Graham is warning that Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump could destroy the GOP.

In a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday, the South Carolina Republican offered why he is supporting Sen. Ted Cruz.

“I’m supporting Cruz because I think he is a reliable conservative; I think the election will be much more competitive with Ted Cruz,” he said. “The people of New York voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump in the Republican primary — I respect that.

“I have never been more worried about the Republican Party breaking apart than I am today.”

But Graham did concede that the excitement over Trump shows people are tired of “big-government liberalism.”

“What we have to do as Republicans is offer an alternative that’s common sense, that people can understand, that’s hopeful and optimistic, not hateful,” he said. “I pray the Republican Party can nominate somebody that can beat Hillary Clinton.

This is an issue that folks like Senator Graham are dead wrong on. There are reason that the Republican Party has less than half of Americas registered voters not counting 50% of the eligible voters that don’t bother to even register because neither of the two party’s represent them. There are reasons that the only way the Republicans can win an election is if there is a very low voter turnout. Folks like Senator Graham as well as the Tea Party folks are the tail that has been waging the dog for way to long. I am a registered Independent who usually vote for a Republican because of the even lower quality of the Democrats candidates, not because of the quality of your candidates. About half of the people who do go vote are voting against the other candidate, not because they really like the one they did vote for, it is called voting for the least of the two evils. I am a very conservative southern white Christian male whom is supposed to be the kind of person that is the base of your party but you do not represent anything except your own wallets, not the wallets of the American workers. This is why someone like Mr. Trump whom is an ego maniac is the only Republican that can beat Ms. Hillary (whom I can’t stand) this November. Mr. Graham, Mr. Trump represents far more Republicans and us Independents than a lying hypocrite and fraud like Mr. Cruz. Put it this way, I as a conservative Christian person would never ever vote for Ms. Hillary, unless Mr. Cruz is the Republican on the November ballot. Hopefully Mr. Trump is in deed the person that “ends” the so-called Republican establishment because you do not represent but about 10% of all the American people. I do not agree with several things that Mr. Trump speaks about wanting to do but I know that the Constitution will limit some of his ideas yet he has got to be better than anything the candidates the Republican establishment as been putting forward.

 

Is Ted Cruz (A) Anti-Christ? Or Is He Simply A Fraud And A Hypocrite?

 

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has first gone around the state of Texas and now the whole country lying to all he meets by saying he is a practicing Christian when he is by no means any such a thing. Lying, yes lying, plus add in other qualities like a fraud, and a thief. O, and let us not forget that as Mr. Trump said  about Mr. Cruz  when he refereed to him as a “very nasty person”, and Mr. Trump ought to know that quality very well, he has made a lifetime of being nasty to people for the purpose of his own personal gain. The Republican establishment chastised Mr. Trump for those comments even though they all know that he spoke truthfully about Mr. Cruz. The very recently retired Republican House Speaker  (John Boehner) shortly before he retired last year called Mr. Cruz “the biggest ass-hole in the Congress”. But then again when another now former Republican Senator Mr. Bob Dole was their Presidential Candidate they keep quiet that within the Senate he was known as ‘Mr. Nasty’. How does a political party whom claims the highroad claiming to be the most Christian Party put forth and then back people whom they know are very hate-filled people?

 

Just like ‘we the people’ have learned that Hillary Clinton is an habitual liar and that there is no way to trust anything that comes out of her mouth, Ted Cruz is proving to be the same. Mr. Cruz ran his Texas Senate campaign as him being this staunch conservative Christian yet it has been proven that he  is a liar to the core of his being. He told all the people of Texas how he was the outsider whom was not beholding to the Wall-Street Bankers, that he was a poor man whom had to mortgage all they had to come up with the money to fund his Senate campaign, liar! He received a little over one million dollars from two Wall-Street bank, the biggest was for $700,000.00 from the very bank that his wife worked at. You did hear that correctly. Then by law and by Senate rules when he was elected to the Senate he had to tell them all of the loans that he had (because the people have a right to know whom they/he is beholding too) there too, he lied. He didn’t mention those loans from the Wall-Street Banks because it would have shown the people of the great state of  Texas that he was a liar and a fraud. Now in the first political pony show that was held in Iowa yesterday his personal staffers were calling up other people’s staffers telling them that his Christian opponent Dr. Ben Carson had suspended his campaign when he had done no such a thing. Cruz is the only candidate that pulled this dirty trick. It is said that all is fair in war and politics but this itself is a lie if you are really a Christian. Cruz knew very well that if Dr. Carson did drop out of the race that he (being he claims to be such a Christian) would pick up a lot of Dr. Carson’s Christian voters, thus helping himself and hurting a person whom is an actual Christian.

 

If a person is truly a Christian we are supposed to try our very best to walk after the heart of God, not be an habitual liar, fraud, thief, law-breaker, and a hypocrite. There is no way that a person whom is a Christian (we must try our best to walk that walk of light everyday of our lives) would ever be considered by those whom know him well as the “biggest ass-hole” in the Congress. Mr. Cruz has proven himself to be little more than an apostasy, at best. At worst, he is one of the Anti-Christs trying to fill the seat of the current Demon that sits in the Oval-Office right now. We the people deserve a lot better human being in the White House than this fraud and habitual liar. Is it possible for Mr. Cruz, Mr. Obama, or Mrs. Clinton to ever speak the truth to the people? They seem to be three of the worse overall quality people who the U.S. Senate has had to offer up as Presidential candidates since, well, Bob Dole.  I don’t mind these folks running for public office because we are all suppose to have that right here in America. My issue with some of these evil characters is when they are claiming to be a Christian when it is very plain that they are capable of anything, no matter how dirty or illegal or unethical they perform their lives. People like Mr. Cruz will say or do anything it takes to win, and friends that is not walking after the heart of Jesus. I believe that Mr. Cruz is a person whom will just make our country even more gridlocked because he refuses any comprise on anything. I am  a conservative Christian person but I am also a realist, if our country, our people, are to prosper and if the Nation is to be strong we can not have a person in the Oval Office whom will never negotiate or compromise in the effort to get our Nation back on our feet again.  This will not with such an habitual liar as Mr. Cruz in the Captains Chair.
