  1. As a new president is about to enter office I offer on his behalf the same daily prayer I've uttered for over 30 years: God grant the wisdom of Solomon and Joseph. Spare this land for the sake of the righteous. Use our leaders to prosper & protect your church & your church to prosper and protect this land. In Jesus' name, Amen.
  2. I was raised to believe we would all be called to Utah in the last days, though I'm not sure if it is real doctrine. Also, I've been told we would have a Mormon president eventually. Is this rumor urban legend or another piece of doctrine? Thanks guys!s
  3. With protests in many cities around the US I wonder if protesters will ever recognize the real problem. It is not Donald Trump and all he has said (as bad as it is). The fundamental problem is that over time we have allowed one person to have such power over us. On his word alone the country can go to war, he can issue executive orders effecting 100's of millions, and he can even tell store owners who is allowed in their bathrooms. A recent article I read said it so well: Unfortunately, I don't think the protesters will see that power is the problem. I suspect nothing will curb the power of the President or this National government short of internal conflict, if even that does. Instead, the left will try and elect someone who can "stand up" to the right. In return the right will try and enforce their will, and the real loser in this game will be our personal freedom. Am I just pessimistic? Does anyone ever see the possibility that the President, Congress, or this machine we call government will lessen it's hold over us?
  4. The Democrats and moderate Republicans are, once again, falling into Trump's trap. This feud the media's reporting on, between Trump and the Kahn family, is built on a silly narrative. The argument is that Kahn's son died serving our country, so, since Trump is blaming the father for his criticism of Trump's immigration policies, Trump must be anti-vet, anti-military, and, of course, completely anti-Muslim. This foolishness is likely to help Trump for two reasons. #1. Nobody is talking about Hillary Clinton. Even President Obama is focused on Trump. Don't forget Trump's key strategy in the primaries--all news coverage--even 'bad'--is free advertising. #2. Does anyone seriously believe that Hillary Clinton will be more pro-military, pro-vet, and pro-American greatness than Trump? How many vets are seriously considering voting for HRC, because Trump allegedly disrespected a vet's family? The narrative in a few weeks will be how amazing it is that Trump recovered from this mess. Many moderate and liberal pundits will also be shaking their heads at why Hillary has gained no traction. Never mind the obvious--nobody is listening to her or talking about her, because the news is all about Trump. Oh...and however obnoxious people think he is, he sure comes across strong. Isn't that his rap--he may be a jerk, but he's one that will fight for us (the working man, the American nation, etc.)? BTW--I'm not endorsing anyone this year. I'll cast my vote, and get reconstructive surgery to re-attach my nose the next day.
  5. In past presidential elections ideologically-driven party members found themselves frustrated. Do I vote for the moderate, compromising candidate who is likely to win, or do I side with the person who will fight the good fight, tooth and nail? Recently, this struggle faced Republicans, more than Democrats. Both McCain (2008) and Romney (2012) presented as conservatively as they could, but those on the right saw them as weak “go along to get along” politicians. Democrats had the presidency, and while a few liberal activists wished Obama would do even more, very few would accuse him centrism. Conservatives were asked to hold their noses and for “the lesser of two evils.” This year is a different scenario, but with the same dilemma—on both sides of the aisle. Democrats face a choice between Hillary Clinton, perceived as a centrist, with experience, and potential legal problems, on the one hand, and a socialist, promising big government programs, and to "soak the rich," on the other. Republicans appear ready to nominate a populist, who takes “extreme” positions that are left, right and centrist. His fiery, confrontational style has thrown the moderates in his party into a huge struggle. The mantra from both parties’ leadership is the same: vote for the lesser of two evils. If you cannot vote FOR our candidate, then vote AGAINST the opponent. What is different this year is that some Sanders supporters may vote for Donald Trump, if Clinton is nominated. They are not party loyalists, and prefer Trump’s confrontation of the establishment to Clinton’s defense of status quo. Likewise, some Republicans will abstain from voting for President. A few may vote for a third party candidate. Some will even vote for Mrs. Clinton. As a Christian, a minister, and a chaplain, I struggle with this dilemma. Do I vote for the lesser of two evils? Do I abstain because I find all choices morally objectionable? Do I pick a third party candidate, or write in one of the losing candidates, just to make a statement? Thomas Trask, former General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, recently declared that every Christian should vote. If we do not know who to vote for, he insisted we get on our knees in prayer, and seek God’s wisdom. This is wise counsel. Personally, I’ve determined that I will vote, and I will choose one of the two major party nominees. America’s two-party system works. It generally leaves us with a president who has won a majority support and relatively broad approval. Which one will do the least to undermine society’s virtue? Which one will, at least indirectly, protect religious liberty and public morality? Both candidates have leadership skills, and can garner wise counsel, to rule competently. So, my choice will be based mainly on social issues, and on the candidates’ fidelity to the Constitution—especially the underlying understanding that our rights and freedoms are God-given, and that our laws merely protect what the Almighty has already provided.
  6. Every day there is a portion of my praying that goes like this: Lord grant our church and political leaders the wisdom of Solomon and Joseph. Use Caesar (government) to prosper and protect your church, and your church to prosper and protect this land. Many feel that Caesar may be growing increasingly hostile towards the church. If so, let us double our prayers, and work even more faithful for the protection (spiritual and physical) of this land!
