“There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown, and let everybody pray that it’s not a tie, for we couldn’t go through with this thing again. And, when the votes are counted, let everybody, including the candidates, get into a good humor as quick as they got into a bad one. Both gangs have been bad sports, so see if at least one can’t redeem themselves by offering no alibis, but cooperate with the winner, for no matter which one it is the poor fellow is going to need it. So cheer up. Let’s all be friends again. One of the evils of democracy is you have to put up with the man you elect whether you want him or not. That’s why we call it democracy.” Will Rogers

Another one from the Sage, Will Rogers: “If you ever injected truth into politics you have no politics”

What happens to all the money that these folks raise and then lose? I do not know as I have and never will never give to a political campaign. All of our resources are given to ministry and to our daily living.

I wonder if politicians realize God is watching everything they say and do?

Remember now, sadly only 6% of Americans hold a Biblical Worldview, this is from Barna Research. This is why we are going to hell as a country.

FGGAM Shares a Biblical Worldview Everyday:

“The Biblical worldview says there is a God—One who is personal, powerful and caring—who created the world and everything in it. It states unequivocally that man is created in God’s image, living in essence as God’s co-regent over creation. Mankind—born and unborn, rich and poor, able and disabled—has intrinsic worth. Almighty God is a sovereign God, ruler over nations, states, empires, and governments. He is to be worshiped and obeyed through the precepts and principles revealed in His infallible Word. He not only exists, but He is sovereign over all of history according to His wisdom and purposes, and He is intimately involved in every aspect of life.”

You can preach to the issues in America and the world without politics, PREACH JESUS! The Ten Commandments, The Great Commission, build bridges of love and trust with the Word of God. Hate and wicked words will just get you more hate. be Jesus like! Do people see the love of JESUS in you?

On our Great Commission trip to California, I talked to several people that told me politics has led them to leave the Church. Our Great Commission Trip I get this comment so many times when I am doing  street ministry. The trip to California and back really got me even more in-tuned to this concern I have had for 7 years. Many Pastors and congregants have made politics a religion, its like its more important to them than JESUS and HIS ways. My spirit is still destressed by the Pastors who have and still stand with wicked politicians. I am always reporting on news from a Biblical Worldview, not a political worldview. I have said for years politics is destroying America. Many Christians have gotten caught up in this evil storm. We need a peacemaker here in America to bring us back together. THAT IS JESUS!!! JESUS!!! These crazy politicians just fight and fight. Not all, but most. I am blessed to know more  than a few godly politicians. We have to start some where, building bridges of love and trust, that is JESUS like. I hear all the time that people say they see so called Christians behaving badly. They want no part of it. I am getting the craziest emails from GOP candidates here in New Mexico as the primary approaches. One keeps sending me an email that says, “The left is attacking me I need your help now.” Really???!! Put on your big boy pants! I laugh at these politicians that try to play off our emotions. Sad! One GOP candidate says, “You are one of a few we are sending this email to.” Right! This is not my first rodeo boys and girls! Many act like we are dumb. I am a registered Independent, as I will not be attached to the dysfunction of either party. I vet my candidates by the Word of God.

Satan is working overtime to tear down Pastors and congregants with politics. I rarely hear anything about the politicians faith in God, just vote for me and send money. When I preach I will address the issues we are facing by a Biblical Worldview. I also we state till I die, we must carry out The Great Commission. I have had so many people as me if I have a Church, they want to hear my messages. That is not what God has called me to do. I am just a simple Pastor traveling around, and also using this website, social media, radio and newspaper to carry out The Great Commission and building bridges of love and trust.

I love getting out on the road and talking to people, you really get the pulse of the Country.

We have to love people, show them the love of Jesus, not a political platform! A JESUS PLATFORM! This is the only way to save the Church and America.

Seek JESUS FIRST HIS WAYS, HIS WORDS.

From CHURCHLEADERS:

VENTURA, CA – Barna Group [on April 27] released their latest survey on the well-being of pastors, finding that the number of pastors who are “seriously considering” leaving full-time ministry sits at 42%. This number has increased 13 percentage points since January 2021, when 29% of pastors were considering quitting ministry.

Among pastors who have considered leaving full-time ministry, the top three reasons that have influenced their thinking are the immense stress of the job (56%), feeling lonely and isolated (43%), and current political division (38%).

THE CHRISTIAN POST REPORTS:

“Gallup has found that trust and confidence in organized religion have plummeted over the past two decades. In 2021, only 37% of the public reported having a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in religious institutions, a massive decline since 2001 when 60 percent reported feeling confident,”
