  1. Hi Josh,
    I would like to point out that we as Christians have a responsibility to God and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. ” Stand up stand up for Jesus ye solder of the cross, bring fourth the royal banner he must not suffer loss”.
    In the ballot box true believers (moth a tase a la thos) must take a stand for Christ and his word. Its Satan and his demons vs God , his only begotten Son and the Holy Angels. and unGodly evil men and women vs Godly men and women from the beginning in the Garden with Adam and Eve till now. We must love the sinner and despice his or her sin. Sermons of today are different from that of Johnathon Edwards, George Whitfield, Charles Spurgeon, D.L.Moody, Billy Sunday, Billy Graham and Puritans, and even Pat Robertson and the 700 club. We have the right as Christians to judge the content of character as stated by Dr Martin Luther King of our leaders ie. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton , and the federal government all 3 branches to a higher standard being our Constitution was written for a moral society as a christian nation. ie. the MayFlower Compact . Why did GOD blessed this nation in the first place? Being the great, great, great, great grandson of Elbridge Gerry Founding Father, signer of the Declaration of Independence and vice President under President James Madison it is not a matter of do not judge lest ye be judged . It is a matter of standing up for our way of life and the word of GOD and his Son Jesus Christ which we can do. We are GOD, soldiers. Thank you and God Bless you.
