I don’t marvel at the words of Christian leaders anymore because I know they never spoke for God and they never will. These Christians have somehow constructed their own Faustian model of a deity that deals in gifts of valuable items such as no abortions, conservative judges, no immigrants of color and oppression of the poor and homeless. These Christians view this Faustian bargain as normal in the course of politics, but they choose to ignore the underlying cost requiring their soul to profess allegiance to their idol God. I’m mistaken? Well Proverbs Chapter 28 verse 4: ‘They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.’
Another false belief of these ‘Evangelical Christians’ is that they have the right to judge everyone else’s sins and transgressions because their sins and transgressions are not as bad as those other heathen peoples’. Oh and Proverbs Chapter 28 is a good one to spend a little time in meditation. Moving on, I can see the benefit of a dissociative mind because God and his way of doing things can be quite frustrating if you want to have in place a structure that’s based on money. I mean money is the fastest way to get someone who doesn’t have it to do your bidding right?
Let’s review before we continue. Only God can judge each and every one of us for the conduct of our lives. We as American citizens can judge the conduct of our elected leaders. Understand the difference? I hope so. Now say for instance that you drive your friend to the bank and he goes in and robs it. You drive off and go by the grocery store. Your friend the bank robber knows you have need of food and he gives you some of the money he stole to purchase it. Are you complicit now in the theft at the bank? Hint, we know you are because you drove him away from the bank after he robbed it. Yeah, your friend didn’t earn the money honestly nor did you purchase the groceries honestly.
You can say all you want that Senator McConnell outsmarted President Obama after the death of that Supreme Court Justice by not allowing him to seat Justice Garland. You know Senator McConnell broke all rules and protocols of decency by withholding that seat. Yeah, let someone cut in line in front of you and see how you react. There is no such thing as all is fair in love and war. You can’t assign decency or honor to someone because they hold a position of authority! Get it through your lying head! Let’s go back to the Holy Bible for a moment and remember King Herod partaking of his brother’s wife Herodias. John the Baptist said it was wrong and he literally lost his head for telling King Herod he was wrong right? Careful casting your pearls before swine because the swine will come back and tear you apart.
Finishing my point that only in a cocooned world of Evangelical Christians can evil gifts be seen as beneficial and good for Christianity. Now let’s define a couple of words such as honor and righteousness. Honor as I would define it over the course of my life is a belief in a standard of behavior that cannot be questioned in its’ display of all that is good. A respectful mastery of one’s own spirit that is wholly benevolent and protective to the weak and duly subordinate to a just Higher Power. Righteousness is possessing of virtuous characteristics such as truth, humility, dignity and ethical conduct to name just a few which comprises a life that holds such traits as tenets to live by defines a person of honor. So, to conclude this post, don’t try to tell another person that a politician, leader, parent, or any person in authority is good. Let their behavior be displayed to the entire world as evidence in itself. Isn’t that what your parents taught you? Judge a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Didn’t Dr. Martin Luther King say that? Oh, I see, now that you’ve made a little money and are enjoying the pleasures life has to offer, things aren’t so right and wrong anyone more huh?
