My 87 year old black dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I phoned, “Dad, what do I say to Christians who support Trump rather than Ted Cruz?” Dad replied, “Trump says he is a Christian.”
Matthews 7:16 – “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”
Ted Cruz is the only candidate who grasps the intensity of the Democrats’, mainstream media’s and homosexual activists’ assault on religious liberty. Cruz has a peerless record of furiously fighting against it. When the Supreme Court, in essence, made it against the law to follow God’s Word which disapproves of homosexuals changing God’s definition of marriage, gay activist George Takei, said this is only the beginning. Because black Justice, Clarence Thomas ruled against twisting the Constitution to please homosexuals, Takei called Thomas “a clown in blackface who should not be on the Supreme Court.”
Folks, imagine the mainstream media firestorm had a Republican called a black Supreme Court Justice a clown in blackface. Takei is allowed to make such a racist comment because his anti-Christian agenda is the same as today’s Democratic party and mainstream media.
Christian clerk Kim Davis was thrown into jail for not issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples. Ted Cruz led the charge, “I Stand with Kim Davis!” Cruz said, “I call upon every believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis.”
Trump sided against Kim Davis. Trump said, “You have to go with it. The decision has been made, and that is the law of the land.”
My fellow Christians, make no mistake about it. The Left is coming after us, determined to make us embrace all forms of anti-biblical behaviors. Noncompliance will result in ending your ability to earn a living and even jail time.
Christian “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson said, “If you’re homosexual, He’ll take it away. If you’re an adulterer, if you’re a liar, what’s the difference? If you break one sin, you may as well break them all.” Phil continued, “Why don’t we just love each other enough that we wouldn’t want to do these things to each other.” Robertson was stunned by the mainstream media firestorm. Robertson was suspended from his hit TV show, intensely hated and accused of spreading hate. Naive 67 year old Robertson said, “All I did was quote from scriptures.” Sorry Phil, quoting from the Bible is no longer permitted in today’s America; swiftly becoming criminal. Public outcry got Phil back on his TV show.
Phil Robertson endorsed Ted Cruz and spoke at a Cruz rally. Robertson rocked the house, receiving long enthusiastic applause when he said Americans should spend more time being biblically-correct rather than politically-correct.
Remember the attack on a bakery owned by a young Christian couple with five kids? A lesbian who the bakery had served for years, asked for a cake for her wedding to a woman. The bakers said doing so would betray their faith. The bakers, Aaron and Melissa Klein, were state ordered to pay the lesbian couple $135,000 in damages. The Kleins were also ordered not to speak publicly about their case; repealing their First Amendment rights.
Now get this folks, Christians around the country sent funds to a website to pay the Klein’s fine. Homosexual activists successfully closed down the website. Another website picked up the baton to save the Klein family’s livelihood. Clearly, the fine was not about paying the lesbian couple. It was about punishing the Kleins; sending a message to Christians and Christian business owners across America. Buck us and we will destroy you.
Aaron Klein posted, “We stand for God’s truth, God’s Word and freedom for ALL Americans… We are here to obey God, not man, and we will not conform to this world. If we were to lose everything, it would be totally worth it for our Lord who gave His one and only son, Jesus, for us! God will win this fight!”
If we know nothing else about Ted Cruz, we know he has proven himself to be a man of great faith and a man of his word. Ted Cruz vows that on his first day as president, he will direct the DOJ and IRS to put an end to the persecution of religious liberty.
Cruz also vows to drop the Obama Administration’s lawsuit against Little Sisters of the Poor who have been ministering to the elderly and dying for over 100 years. The nuns said their faith prevents them from funding contraception as mandated in Obamacare. The Obama Administration says screw your faith, comply, or be disbanded.
Cruz’s first day in the White House, includes a promise to instruct the DOJ to investigate the videos exposing the reprehensible evil behind the walls of Planned Parenthood. The vile government funded baby killers have been proven to be nothing more than an abortion factory and dead-baby-body-parts chop shop. Cruz wants the DOJ to prosecute PP for any criminal violations.
Fellow Christians, I pray that you let the spirit of the Lord lead you in your decision regarding our nation’s leadership. In His Love, Lloyd
