Just musing..

I actually put this post together Feb. 29th but stuck it in save draft. But today I thought to drag it out and post it mainly because Christian Newswire has yet another ‘news’ item up today from this guy.  

Two items at Christian Newswire caught my eye,

Pastor Says ‘Obey God and Turn Away from Obama’ — Jesus Says Obama is Not a Christian

“Christians are to obey God and turn away from Barack Obama — Obama is lost in sin,” says pastor Steven Andrew. He is president of USA Christian Ministries and author of “Making A Strong Christian Nation.”

Pastor Says ‘Mitt Romney Would be God’s Judgment on the USA’

“God says it is sin for a Christian to vote for Mitt Romney because Mormons preach a different gospel. Romney as president would be God’s judgment,” says pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries. 

The one from today, 

‘God & Santorum vs. Satan & Romney’

Pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries, submits the following and is available for comment: “The GOP election is ‘God and Santorum vs. Satan and Romney’,” says pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries and author of “Making Strong Christian Nation”. “If you want God’s blessings for Americans, then vote for Christian Rick Santorum, not Mormon Mitt Romney,” he adds….

“God’s issues or ‘social issues’ are the most important election issues because God rewards nations who obey Him with prosperity and sends famine to those disobeying Him (Deuteronomy 28, Nehemiah 9:32-38, Leviticus 26),” the author teaches in “Making A Strong Christian Nation”.   

What interested me was that so many of these Pastors talk about God’s judgment on America (unless their candidate wins) but seem to forget “judgment must begin at the house of God….” 1 Peter 4:17 

12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Just musing…

  1. The Mirror Translation Romans 12:16 Esteem everyone with the same respect; no one is more important than the other. Associate yourself rather with the lowly than with the lofty. Do not distance yourself from others in your own mind.
    12:17 Two wrongs doesn’t make a right. Never retaliate, instead cultivate the attitude to anticipate only beauty and value in every person you encounter.
    12:18 You have within you what it takes to be everyone’s friend, regardless of how they treat you.
    12:19 Do not bother yourselves to get even dear ones. Do not let anger or irritation distract you; that which we have in common with one another (righteousness) must set the pace. Scripture confirms that the Lord Himself is the revealer of righteousness.
    12:20 “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.” These acts of kindness will certainly rid your enemy of the dross in his mind and win him as a friend.
    12:21 Do not let evil be an excuse for you to feel defeated, rather seize the opportunity to turn the situation into a victory for good.

    CHAPTER 13
    13:1 Submit to the authorities with your whole heart. Any authority only has its relevance in God. God is a God of order.
    13:2 To rebel against a God ordained structure of authority is a criminal offence.
    13:3 Rulers are there to encourage good behaviour and frighten off any evil intention.
    13:4 They represent God’s desire to protect you and to do you good. The sword they carry is not for decoration, they know how to use it against evil.
    13:5 Do not let fear of punishment be your motivation, rather embrace a good conscience.
    13:6 The taxes you pay is to show the government that you support what they represent on God’s behalf.
    13:7 Fulfil all your obligations to the government; whatever the tax is that they require of you. Give them their due honour and respect.
    13:8 Remain debt free, the only thing we owe the world is our love. This is the essence of the law.
    13:9 Love makes it impossible for you to commit adultery, or to kill someone, or to steal from someone, speak evil of anyone, or to covet anything that belongs to someone else. Your only option is to esteem a fellow human with equal value to yourself.
    13:10 Everything love does is to the advantage of another; therefore love is the most complete expression of what the law requires.
    13:11 You must understand the urgency and context of time; it is most certainly the hour now to wake up at once out of the hypnotic state of slumber and unbelief. Salvation has come.
    13:12 It was night for long enough; the day has arrived. Cease immediately with any action associated with the darkness of ignorance. Clothe yourself in the radiance of light as a soldier would wear his full weaponry.
    13:13 Our lives exhibit the kind of conduct consistent with the day, in contrast to the parade of the night of intoxicated licentiousness and lust, with all the quarrels and jealousy it ignites.
    13:14 By being fully immersed into Christ makes it impossible for the flesh to even imagine to find any further expression or fulfilment in lust. Jesus is the supreme authority.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
