The "rule of conversation" don't talk politics and don't talk religion. Leading up to the US Presidential election we are being forced to talk about both. I believe everything happens for a reason and God could not have chosen a better time to "test" us as believers as the called out chosen ones. Make no mistake about it.... this election is a test of your "faith", "belief", "moral compass", your decision will determine not what you won't stand for but Who You "will" Stand With.
The bible say "This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." Duet 20:19. God does not set before us the choice of "death and curses" Which will you choose this election?... "death" or "cursed".....lol Allegory....but a hidden "truth" if you will just catch it.
"Fear and Love" is the motivation that control behavior. This entire election has been about "Fear"......Both candidate tagline... headline should read "Vote for me! not because I care, but because the option of my opponent is much more to be feared and down right scary" the bible says, God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of "love" and of a sound mind. In the wake of this election consult your "inner conscious" who is fit to be the Leader of the FREE WORLD the one who has the spirit of death or he that brings a curseth spirit. Wait..... don't answer that......
Listen! Before Christ went to the cross he said to the disciple "watch and pray" not necessarily to change the course of God's plan, but so they could be strengthen in their "faith" in order to endure what was about to happen to their leader, their way of life, their systems of beliefs. He urged them not to fall asleep because what was coming was happening whether they were ready or not and He who they called Rabbi, Teacher, Leader was going to the CROSS to suffer and die. But wait!!! remember, He did not leave them with out a Comforter......
When I was in IRAQ I used to tell my Soldiers to EMBRACE the SUCK!!! The Strength "United" in Christ Kingdom. There are some things we can not escape they are inevitable, however, we can be Comfort knowing that the Spirt of God lives on. So hold your head up!!!! Don't be Afraid, Be Strengthen in Your Faith and let not FEAR BE what control you in CHOOSING WHO YOU WILL STAND WITH!!!!
