On Tuesday the Ides of March (interestingly enough) a blogger by the name of Matt Walsh wrote an anti-Trump post for “The Blaze”. An online publication site owned by Rafael Edward Cruz supporter Glen Beck.
In his post, Matt attacks not only Trump, those that generally support Trump, but those conservative leaders who also support Trump. Following the lines of other Cruz slappies Matt goes on to imply that if one supports Trump that you are anti-Christian, and not really a true conservative.
He also uses Holy Scripture to prove his point of view. Quoting Ephesians 5:6 and 11, and mentioning the Books of Colossians and 2nd Timothy.
But he forgets, conveniently, to quote Scripture that would have a lot to say about the end times of our day that would put Rafael Edward Cruz in a bad light.
Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
2nd Timothy 3:5
having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
2nd Peter 2:1-3
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them — bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. There condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction had not been sleeping.
The fabricated stories out of the Cruz leadership at the Iowa Caucus that resulted in the greed of a Cruz win. In Iowa, most people outside of politics just don’t understand just how easy that could have been avoided. All the Cruz leadership had to do was call the Carson leadership to confirm. They all have each others numbers here in Iowa. But it’s obvious it wasn’t done which indicates the deception towards Iowa voters was planned.
I could name names as Matt did in his post. But the Cruz leadership in Iowa know who they are and they know full well what they did was wrong.
Those of us Christian Conservatives who are supporting Donald Trump know he isn’t the ideal candidate. But he is an honest one. Our nation has drifted so far away from the original intent that someone who stands firmly in that spot is truly unelectable. Small steps are needed to bring us back. And we start with Trump.
Remember to check Holy Scripture into the character of the men that God himself chose to lead His people. Many of them are not at all godly and all of them had deep character faults. God qualifies the called. He does not call the qualified. This is all for God’s Glory not ours.
