Is the 2016 presidential election shaping up to be a nightmare for true Christians? Unless God intervenes and moves on the hearts of more believers to vote according to the Bible, it appears more and more likely that our choices will be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton is staunchly pro-abortion, pro-socialism and homosexual marriage, while Trump is–well, who really knows because his current stances seem to contradict his checkered past. But one thing we know for sure–while he claims to be a Christian, his actions and language are not what we are used to hearing from Christians.
Every election is a choice between the lesser of two evils, so is this one any different?
In our first segment, we also get an update on Christian persecution in the Middle East with William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition. Murray has a brand new book out – just released this week entitled, Utopian Road to Hell: Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning.
“William J. Murray masterfully educates us on the utopians’ swath of destruction throughout history and warns us of the dangers of present-day utopians fighting to hold power. We must heed the warning of George Washington when he said in his 1796 Farewell Address that it is important for those entrusted with the administration of this great and free nation, “to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another.” We must reclaim the freedom of the individual to avoid the continued path down the utopian road to hell.
“Utopian dreamers are deceived and deceiving. Their “fight for the people” rhetoric may sound good at first, but history proves egalitarian governments and the cultures they try to create destroy freedom, destroy creativity, destroy human lives, create poverty and misery, and often spread beyond their borders to bring others under slavery. Utopians believe that through their own personal brilliance a better society can be created on earth. When the belief in man as a creation in the image of God is completely rejected, the use of slavery and mass execution can be justified in the name of the creation of a utopian state for the masses.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20
Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. Galatians 6:9-10
Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens. Exodus 18:21
