For Those Who Feel Angry and Afraid Following the Election of 2016


Open hand raised, Stop Hating sign painted, multi purpose concepPresident-elect Trump has said that it’s “Time for us to come together as one united people.” President Obama agrees. So does Hillary Clinton. You can see their videos at my author Facebook page.

America has elected a new President, and given him a united House of Representatives, and Senate.

This is Democracy at its best in a Democratic republic. We survived President Obama’s reign and, while continuing to pray for him, we worked hard to prepare for the 2016 election.

By the results of this historic 2016 election, a great portion of America has said:

  • “No” to corruption
  • “No” to the the entrenched “powers that be” on both sides of the aisle
  • “No” to politically correct buzzwords and clichés that have categorized and defamed fellow citizens who disagreed with the liberal agenda and its extreme positions
  • “No” to involuntarily disarming our citizens and quashing the 2nd Amendment
  • “No” to illegal immigration at the expense of Veterans and our own poor people
  • “No” to the violence and horror of ISIS and Apocalyptic Islamic terror worldwide
  • “No” to circumventing the American Constitution and the Legislative branch of government
  • “No” to radical socialism/communism–we are not going to be another Europe
  • “No” to the attack on the freedom of biblical religions
  • “No” to lawlessness, violence, and looting in the streets of America
  • “No” to the disrespect toward the rule of law
  • “No” to a continued erosion of our military readiness in light of increasing threats worldwide
  • “No” to apologizing around the world for our great nation
  • “No” to faulty and deeply flawed treaties and trade agreements
  • “No” to the irresponsible spending that places the burden of our national debt onto the backs of our children and grandchildren
  • “No” to the weight of governmental bureaucracy and bloated Federal offices
  • “No” to increased regulations that drive small businesses out of existence
  • “No” to the erosion of free speech
  • “No” to the unwillingness of politicians unwilling to cooperate in order to make America excellent for ALL its citizens

Shortly after the election, one of our young adult relatives wrote a scathing post on FB toward those who did not vote as she did. When my wife gave her a gentle admonition to not allow politics to instill in her bitterness, or resentment, our relative tore into my wife with disrespectful vitriol. It felt to my wife as though she had been slapped in the face.

This young adult was not brought up to treat family members that way–or anyone for that matter. I’d be surprised to find out that the adults around her modeled disrespect for elders or anger and hatred toward those with whom we disagree. Yet her own political agenda meant more to her than hurting or accusing her family member in a mean-spirited response. We can only hope that her heart will soften as she matures. I’m hoping that this was just a bad moment for her and not her typical way of treating people with whom she does not see eye to eye.

For those of you who are angry and afraid, we hope that your maturity and your love for this nation will overcome your anger and disappointment at the results of this hard-fought election and that you will help to tone down the shaming, name-calling, hatred, bullying and fear-factor. Political beliefs should not triumph over love of friends and family. I mistrust any worldview that treats people with hatred and anger, or that devalues or objectifies its opponents.

We can agree to disagree amiably yet still value and respect one another. As Hillary Clinton and President Obama have said in post-election speeches: Support the new President-elect. Give him and his team an opportunity to fulfill the office that the nation has elected him to.

Listen to Trump’s acceptance speech and help him to fulfill it for ALL Americans:

As one who voted for Trump-Pence, I am celebrating America’s victory, but not your defeat. All gloating is birthed and nurtured in an evil disposition.

May God Bless you  . . . and the United States of America

QUESTION: Honestly, how would you have hoped that Trump supporters would respond if Hillary had won the election?

How Should We Respond To Apocalypse Date Setters? – YouTube


It’s really important to remember what Jesus said, “No one knows . . . ” when the end will come except for the Father. Therefore ANYONE claiming to know is flatly contradicting Jesus and therefore IS IN SERIOUS ERROR!!

Jesus went on to say that we should know the times and the season of His return. But NEVER will we know the EXACT day, hour, or year of His return.

So, if leaders claim to know . . . get away from them as fast as you can unless they’ve PUBLICLY repented of date-setting.

 

Are Some People Born Gay? – YouTube


Here’s the best presentation of this question that I’ve ever seen. If someone is seriously interested in the question or wants to know if scientific proof supports the LGBT orientation / lifestyle, he or she will find the facts very helpful.

Welcome to America – YouTube


We welcome Muslims who wish to assimilate as Americans. And we want you to know that if you hold to the best in Islam, you will remain welcomed. But if you choose the path of Jihad or support of murderous individuals and groups, you will not find a home here.

Let Bill give you some sage wisdom and good advice so that you can enjoy a new life here.

 

Action Steps for “Peaceful” Muslims


I wrote this post five years ago. I repost it today because it’s worth repeating.

I address all peaceful Muslims who sincerely believe that their faith is a religion of peace; yet, feel threatened by the increasing separation from mainstream Americans. We want to love, respect, and trust you. But that must be won by your actions.

I believe that you believe what you believe. You really think that Islam is peaceful and will bring world peace. If Islam devoured the world there would be peace for a short time following the fall of the last free nation and the indoctrination of several generations of children. But then (or perhaps before) the fallen nature of man would have no restraints and you would see the horror of totalitarianism. You would witness a world of bondage, slavery, sexual perversion cloaked in religious dogma. You would see a nightmare like none you’ve ever imagined nor has entered the mind of a human being. Unless you look at some of the places around the world where Islam reigns. They are nations of fear and desperation, bondage and poverty of spirit. Women are enslaved. Creativity is crushed. Violence and evil rule.

The peace would be shortlived. It would disintegrate in the turmoil of the spirits that animate all substitute religions (as opposed to a relationship with Yahweh). The violent and martial spirits of Islam would surface. The anti-semetic spirit that animates totalitarian worldviews would arise and not be satiated until the genocide was complete. Then it would turn and devour everything human as Satan does wherever he manifests.

See here’s the TRUTH.

Behind every doctrine, belief, or faith that denies Yahweh–the ONLY living God–is a spiritual distortion which the Bible calls a “stronghold.” It is a lie or half-truth that presents itself as the truth. All stronholds have the following in common:

  • They substitute people, animals, idols, or false gods for Yahweh.
  • They appeal to religious rules and regulations that appease the god being worshiped.
  • They require absolute obedience based on law, not love. They enslave people. Liberty and freedom of worship are their absolute enemies.
  • They deny what God says about himself.
  • They are spiritual in nature, thus very difficult to get at.
  • They exchange the truth of God for a lie.
  • They raise up zealots who would kill those who disagree or diverge.

Since you have embraced several cognitive distortions: “Allah is god.” “Mohammad is his prophet.” and  “Our religion is a religion of peace.” you have embraced three strongholds which have set themselves up against knowing Yahweh and his Messiah.

I suggest therefore, if you are a sincere person, that you take the following action-steps:

Embrace the true Prince of Peace. Yahweh is the Savior of all men and women, nations and tongues. He is not a Western God but the God the entire cosmos. According to the Apostles, Jesus, His unique Son, is his ONLY means of salvation for ALL. The bible calls Jesus–“Prince of Peace” or “Peaceful Leader.” He is the exact representation of Yahweh’s character/person. He is alive, not dead. He lives and is with you now if you are still reading this post.

Believe the truth. The truth has power to demolish “strongholds” and every pretense that sets itself up against the knowledge of Yahweh–God. Contrary to popular notions, not all truth is relative. The truth that God himself has proclaimed or that Jesus has stated is the absolute, TRUTH.

The power of a lie is broken only by the truth. As long as we remain in the age of grace, Jesus is saving the world, not judging it. This truth breaks down the lie. Then when the lie is exposed, we are free to choose. Have you come into freedom or bondage when you converted to Islam?

What about those who choose against our God or Jesus?

He does not tell us to kill them or to rid the world of them. True disciples of Jesus and of God the Father, are commanded to LOVE them. We do that by speaking truth (hoping to awaken people everywhere from their demonic dream). We serve those we love. We pray for them. We care for them in acts of kindness and compassion. That’s the fruit of true disciples of Jesus. And . . . I’m convinced that many world religions, including Islam, have just enough of the truth in them to lead people to the Heart that has created and today rules the Universe–Yahweh, the ONLY living God and His Messiah–Jesus of Nazareth. Even your own prophet spoke of Jesus and his importance. Why did he even bother to acknowledge Jesus?

Take a Stand! If you are sincere in your claim that you are a peaceful Muslim, if you denounce the behavior of your fellow Muslims who have chosen to live out the Qu’ran literally and follow the violent lifestyles of Mohammed and Suleiman, and other champions of your faith, then stand publicly against their understanding of Jihad. Take a stand against the notion that “Sharia Law” is the destiny of the peoples of the world. Speak out against the lying and deceit that goes on as some Muslims seek to deceive in order to become accepted. Under the strategy of assimilation they are a 21st Century Trojan Horse in the midst of the nations where they live. Anyone who lies to win converts is not of God. Jesus said that liars are of their father, the Devil. For the Devil is the Father of Lies and has lied from the beginning. That’s his atmosphere. The bible later states in several places that the Lake of Fire awaits ALL who LIE! True disciples of Yahweh or of Jesus, may lie–but they cannot justify it, nor will they go unpunished for lying. Allah, on the other hand, approves of lying–that is why all Muslims (peaceful or jihadist) must ultimately decided how one God justfies lying and how the other God judges lying. They are not the same God. Which will you follow, the god of lies or the God of truth?

Stand against your personal sin. Embrace a jihad of righteousness in your inner being. Jihad, “struggle,” should be against your own personal sin just as each follower of Jesus has confronted his own sin-nature and reckoned it crucified with Jesus. We put off the old and put on the new committed to living peacefully and in love with our neighbors–regardless of their faith. We only expect the same freedoms. Islam does not respect that freedom.

Make A Choice! The great prophet Joshua said to the people,

   “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord [Yahweh].”” (Joshua 24:15, ESV)

I want to challenge you who claim that Islam is peaceful and is not out to place everyone under Sharia law or enslave the world, to TAKE A STAND! You should be denouncing and refuting those who so interpret the Qu’ran to say that Islam is to rule the world. You should be supporting the freedom and liberty that you claim to value as citizens in this free nation. You should recognize and support the free choice of every human being to worship as their conscience dictates. NO ONE has the right to force ANYONE to embrace a particular religion or dogma. We are free. And when someone becomes a follower of Jesus, they have been set free from sin and from religion.

“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1, ESV)

The ONE TRUE God values FREEDOM that is what originally made the United States great and Free. We have traditionally been a nation with open arms. We welcome ALL who will come and EMBRACE OUR VALUES, SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE, and UPHOLD OUR FREEDOMS. That is why you are welcome here. The price of freedom: is to stand against Tyranny wherever it is found. Will you stand with me, with us? By standing up without fear and confronting the evils of radical Muslims, you will win our respect and trust.
