  1. This nation will fall, and continue to fall becasue of what the evangelicals teach on divorce and remarriage. The evangelicals must repent of teaching that the covenant of one-flesh marriage can end in divorce. We need a nation that has the spirit of Ezra, and that includes millions repenting of adulterous unions.

  2. The Trump appeal- As the white house spokesman stands up and tells what we think, see and know is not what is. Billie Clinton said something similar in his term. They float out a video reaction to Benghazi as the reason for a terrorist attack. America is now inundated with so much pc that the very resonance of speaking your mind is the reaction to the times we are in.

  3. I think it is crazy to say Megan Kelly was like a vulture to Trump. They asked the toughest questions and pointed out the biggest problems with all the candidates. Trump was the only one to cry about it later.

  4. Democrats and Republicans are both part of the problem. We should get rid of both parties. Nothing ever changes, except that the country keeps getting worse and worse. Why? Because there is only one agenda, which is to weaken America so that China can invade us and help set up the New World Order. They are getting rid of our guns, getting rid of our rights, and handing us over to the jurisdiction of the United Nations. Both parties are doing this. Members from both parties sit on commissions that are actively working to undermine the sovereignty of the United States.

    The NWO will be Eastern. Because the Chinese culture is intrinsically atheistic, it was not difficult to convince a billion people to embrace International Bolshevism, and it will not be difficult to manipulate that ambitious nation to be the cornerstone of the global republic. The Chinese and the Russians will prevail against Europe. The US, already impotent, will be dealt a severe blow by a vastly superior army. Do you think the two parties are doing anything to stop this from happening?

    Democrats pretend to care, and Republicans pretend to be patriotic. Democrats pretend to be the party of the homosexuals, and the Republican establishment is almost entirely queer. Republicans pretend to be against abortion, yet the Bush family founded Planned Parenthood, and Jeb Bush collaborated with Michael Bloomberg to continue its mission. Wake up. It is all deception.

    Only Christ can save us.

  5. It seems to me that many people value a candidate’s substance on political matters, on the things he would do responding to problems, more, than they do not like a candidate’s attitude or candor.

  6. I don’t know how it’s possible to get rid of political parties. People tend to band together because of like minded values or beliefs, knowing that there is power in togetherness, even if it’s only in part.

    However, if all people began to band together on godly values, for those things run together…..

  7. Why is the focus of this radio program about FEASTING on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil when god clearly commanded you NOT to eat of it?

  8. Hey John, the focus is on respect when you put a small g like you did above we see that you start off as a mocker. Capitalize the g in your life and the mocking will cease.

  9. Donald Trump comes accross as a strong person who has and perhaps, can, get things done by bowling over opposition, whether p.c. media or harry reid types. People seem to be looking for someone who is strong enough to really tackle the tough issues of the deficit etc. Trump is successful and seems honest in telling it like it is. His bold honesty is in stark contrast to most politicians. That said, I personally would rather see a man of wisdom like Ben Carson in charge.

  10. Noelle,

    Do you have sources for your statements on the Bush family, Planned Parenthood, Jeb Bush and Bloomberg?

    America has more guns now than ever in its history.

    I’m just curious about where you’re getting your information.

    Thanks!

  11. …the steady hands of a skilled surgeon. How can I not like Ben Carson? I know…there’s a lot of other good candidates too.

  12. Noelle,

    I’m sure those subjects are covered somewhere on the Internet, but I was looking for solid, reputable sources. If you don’t have any references to back up your sweeping claims, please just say so. You could say, “I read it on a blog post” or whatever.

    Your claims:

    “Republican establishment is almost entirely queer.”

    “Republicans pretend to be against abortion, yet the Bush family founded Planned Parenthood, and Jeb Bush collaborated with Michael Bloomberg to continue its mission.”

    “The Chinese and the Russians will prevail against Europe. The US, already impotent, will be dealt a severe blow by a vastly superior army.”

    Thanks anyway!

  13. Actually, the connection between Jeb Bush and Michael Bloomberg was mentioned in the debate. Bush claimed that he didn’t know that he was involved, that he was participating only for education-related items, or what have you. But it’s common knowledge that Prescott Bush helped to found Planned Parenthood. It also strikes me as odd that former first lady Laura Bush was a staunch supporter of abortion. You have to read between the lines. Don’t be so trusting. Bush’s little-known brother Marvin Bush also handled security for the WTC during 9/11. Notice a pattern of conflicts of interest?

  14. Noelle,

    I was about to say the same to you: Don’t be so trusting of everything you read on the Internet. Christians need to be more discerning about the websites they read–who hosts them, etc. There are “common knowledge facts” being spread online that are half-truths or myths.

    Prescott Bush didn’t found Planned Parenthood (it was founded by Margaret Sanger in 1921 as the American Birth Control League), although he was involved in later years, decades before abortion was legal.

    George H.W. Bush supported family planning (his nickname was Rubbers) as did the vast majority Republicans and Democrats. As the GOP platform moved to the right in the 1980s, so did he, embracing its anti-abortion platform.

    Bush II was also pro-life, but he compromised on funding Title X in ’07.

    Jeb Bush’s anti-abortion record as governor of Florida is without dispute. He cut off state funding to Planned Parenthood and prevented the use of public funds for stem cell research.

    I don’t notice a pattern of conflict of interest because I’m not into conspiracy theories and I fact-check everything.

    Politics is dirty. It’s impossible for a politician to keep his or her nose clean. Somewhere along the line, compromise is a given.

  15. Amy,

    Please fact check the fact-checkers, also. The media in this country tells us precious little about what is happening in the world today and in the machinations of our government. As you said, politics is dirty. Always be open-minded and always consider alternative perspectives. Tell you what–I will, too.

    God bless.

  16. Noelle,

    The paranoid and conspiratorial idea that truth cannot be obtained anywhere because of the big, evil media is bogus.

    We need to do our own research. We need to know the reputable sources. We need knowledge of the Word and mature discernment.

    The truth is out there.

    You’ve made several truth claims that you’ve been unable to back up. This just makes Christians look gullible.

    Now you’ve made another sweeping statement, “The media in this country tells us precious little about what is happening in the world today…”

    They do tell us what’s going on but some of it is colored by bias and some of it is half-true or not true — but certainly not all of it. Knowing where to go to get the full story instead of partisan sound bites is important, and so is reading widely.

    Blessings to you as well.

  17. Amy,

    No one would be able to make Christians look more gullible than they already look, especially when so many Evangelicals believe the people who hate them when they buy that somehow Paul’s Letter to the Romans justifies support for Zionism. In any case, we seem to be arriving at the same conclusion when we state that people should be wary of the media. The same media that convinces us that those ape skeletons in Africa are really the remains of human ancestors has been able to pull the wool over our eyes on many other occasions. That the Bush family has a connection to the eugenics advocate Sanger is significant. That George W Bush, whose wife is vocally pro choice, did nothing to legislate against abortion when he had control of both houses of Congress is also significant. As you said, use discernment, but don’t discern selectively.

    Thanks.

  18. As I read post 17, I couldn’t help but see that maybe this is a sign of a change to the moral right. Is America ready for change? Is it willing?
    I hope so.

  19. Noelle,

    You said, “That the Bush family has a connection to the eugenics advocate Sanger is significant. That George W Bush, whose wife is vocally pro choice, did nothing to legislate against abortion when he had control of both houses of Congress is also significant. As you said, use discernment, but don’t discern selectively.”

    First, the Bush family was pro-family planning, but not into the racist eugenics of Sanger. You are making a guilt-by-association argument. How is that different from what the media does? Are Christians who use birth control or natural family planning in support of Sanger and her racist eugenics programs? Of course not. (I’m not defending birth control, only making a point.)

    Second, I don’t think Bush II thought he could overturn Roe v. Wade. Electing a pro-life president isn’t enough.

    Also, look what happened in 1993 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. If there was ever a time to overturn Roe it was then, and it could have been done, but conservative judges wouldn’t do it.

    So I see this as a sin issue, not a partisan politics issue.
