Christianity Today Does Not Speak For Me
By Grant Phillips
Christianity Today was first published as a Christian magazine in 1956. As a teenager in the 60s, I often read the articles that were provided therein. Our strongly conservative Southern Baptist church occasionally provided free copies to those who attended the services.
HOWEVER, as the years drifted by, the content of this magazine began to change. The focus changed. The Gospel of Christ was exchanged for a social gospel. The dial moved from right to left, and now is about as far left as one can get.
Christianity Today was a strong Barak Obama supporter and now has shown their true colors in their sanctimonious attempt to include all Christians in their discrediting President Donald Trump. They have even attempted to use the name of Billy Graham to support their cause. Thankfully, Franklin Graham “nipped that in the bud.”
The Democrat arm of our two major political parties has fallen under the spell of Satan’s whispers. It is consumed with hate, greed, jealousy, vindictiveness, and evil on a scale never seen before in our country’s history, and there is much in our history to be ashamed. Does that mean the Republicans are little angels? Of course not, but they still retain some semblance of conservatism and decency.
Do you reader, support abortion, the horrific murder of babies? Do you support homosexuality (God does not)? Are you opposed to the nation Israel, the apple of God’s eye? Are you against actually obeying the laws and Constitution of our country? Are you opposed to the true Gospel? Would you rather not protect our country and its citizens? Is it your wish to eliminate anything related to God, specifically Jesus Christ in our schools, and everywhere else in society? Do you prefer, “Happy Holidays” to “Merry Christmas?” Do you believe there are many ways to God? This is only a partial list, but if your response is, “Yes,” then please hop on the band wagon with those who prefer to follow any and everything that is contrary to the will of Almighty God.
President Donald Trump was not elected to be the pastor or religious leader of this country. He was elected to be our President, a SECULAR position. No, he is not Mr. Perfect, but who is? The President, Congress and Judicial bodies of our government are in place for the benefit of the American people to protect our interest. President Trump is doing his best, and has accomplished much, despite the liberal arm of Congress, the media and Hollywood. There is no way he would have ever been elected or accomplished what he has to date without the help of God. We need to think about that…real hard.
There is much more I could say about this. There are many names that could be mentioned, but I am not writing to sling mud. I am writing to encourage those true Christians who may be still on the fence to look past all the smoke and mirrors and actually listen to what these people are saying and to ask the Lord God to show them the Truth. Jesus said, “…I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 emphasis mine) The liberals would have you believe they have the truth. They do not. Most everything that comes from them is a lie.
“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” (Ecclesiastes 10:2)
I don’t expect you to just take me at my word either, but if we are a child of God, we need to listen to HIM. I pray that God, the one and only true God of the Bible will again bless us with President Trump’s re-election. I also pray that our Lord will continue to protect him from harm, and that President Trump will listen to the advice God sends his way. How this man has lived under the strain of 24/7 attacks from every direction is beyond me. We must remember though, we do not pray facing Washington D.C. We pray facing, metaphorically, Heaven. President Trump is only a tool that God can use, but he can use him to bless us if we pray.
God gave us a glimpse of true evil in the previous Presidential administration, and we nearly got more of the same in the last Presidential election. For some reason He chose to give us another chance in our current President. If any of the Presidential nominees are elected in the next Presidential election, expect the worse because that is exactly what we will get. The Democrats have nothing to offer but socialism and failure.
Christianity Today does not represent me. The impeachment the House just voted on is nothing but a three year witch hunt and sham fueled by satanic hatred. Imagine how much more could have been accomplished by our political leaders if they had not frittered away time and money on their own selfish hatred. Even if both parties came together singing Kumbaya around the campfire while holding hands with President Trump, will that help? The obvious answer is, “No,” (but it wouldn’t hurt). The only perfect political structure is one ruled totally by God, specifically the Messiah Jesus Christ, called the Millennium (or 1,000 year reign).
I close with one request. If you haven’t already done so, pray for God’s guidance and His will to be done. Then look for the Truth in the Bible. Any true Christian who will consume God’s Word will readily see that Satan is having a field day with those who are supposed to be representing the American people. Here is the bottom line: This isn’t about politics. It is about spiritual warfare.
“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:12-13)
