you be fooled again??"
Many in Christendom are fired up about
some of the candidates in the elephant party believing them
‘divinely chosen’ so I am going to ask: will you be fooled
again???? How many thought Dubya was going to be a Godsend and
that he would lead us back to righteousness?? We were lied to
then (I told people then, 2000, he wasn’t a Christian yet I was
shouted down. I didn’t vote for him EITHER time.) and many of
the Christians in the nation bought it hook, line and sinker.
And where did it get us??? After 8 years of our ‘divinely
chosen’ president we ended up with a man in that office some say
is the AC. Some back then and again in 2004 said that he
wasn’t great but he was the lesser of two evils (refusing to
even consider a third party candidate whose values were true) so
we had to pick/stick with him. The lesser of two evils is still
........... EVIL!!! Now we are heading into the 2012 election
cycle and again the Christians are being told about ‘divine’
choices in front of them to lead America back to prosperity,
back to morality, and into a new golden age. So I ask
again will you be fooled again???
The kingdom we belong to is not of this world we need to stop
trying to make it of this world. That is not to say we should be
uninvolved but we need to stop trying to find a political
solution to a spiritual problem. We are not a chosen nation that
cannot be destroyed or will always find favor in God’s eyes. The
only chosen nation is Israel and even they were punish by
ceasing to be a nation for nearly 2000 years. America is not the
‘city that is set on an hill’ Jesus spoke of in Matthew.
Christians are. We need to focus on the true mission of the
church and stop trying to play the political game hoping one of
these times it’ll work and we will establish a version of the
kingdom here on earth prior to the second coming.

Also remember two things: Hitler was ELECTED into office then
became dictator and he used the church to help him greatly in
the early years before he turned on them.
