Mullin's re Christian Politicians"
Hey John and Doves,
Steve, your post:- http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2011/stevem812.htm
A very good point indeed. Who knows what goes on in another
person's heart! If Bible believing Christians just kicked back,
awaiting the Rapture - evil would run rampant. I am guessing
that we're all expected to use our gifts,
fully......until......! It's very difficult and I have to
pray very hard about it. We have no right to judge anyone as
'not really a Bible believing Christian' by the way they deal
with our current reality. That's our LORD'S territory. Can you
imagine Sarah Palin (for example) making it as far as the
elections whilst preaching the Rapture??? Methinks, NOT. Not a
chance. Plus - we have no guarantee that the Rapture is going to
take place as soon as we're all praying and hoping for. It could
(please God, NOT) be delayed for another couple of years. I
would not be a politician for all the tea in China,
BUT........someone's got to do it.
My only bench mark to judge others by, is the nation of Israel -
God's Beloved Wife and the Jewish people. If they curse Israel
and the Jewish people, then they are NO Christian. Finished.
There is no doubt left in my mind. Scripture is VERY clear about
it. Sarah Palin is Israel sympathetic - seemingly, without any
hidden agenda. I am suspicious of Glenn Beck only because of his
Mormon faith - otherwise, I am thrilled at his outreach to
Israel. It's a tough one.
It's all in our LORD'S hands, Steve. Praise His Holy Name -
because it's very difficult to sift the wheat from the chaff
In Jesus' Beloved Name
