With Friends Like These...
There is a marked difference between stabbing someone in the back, and premeditated, coordinated betrayal. One is an act of cowardice, the other is slimy and off-putting, and reveals evil intent in a way that leaves you speechless, and wondering how some men can sink so low.
There is doing someone dirty, then there’s doing someone low down dirty, as the kids like to say. What we did to Israel at the United Nations recently was low down dirty. If you could blend the worst of Judas, Brutus, and Benedict Arnold and somehow produce a singular action, it would likely be the action the United States undertook regarding Israel and its vote for UN resolution.
It’s one thing to feel a knife plunge into your back, it’s quite another when the person stabbing you is kissing your cheek, shaking your hand, and calling you brother while twisting the knife. We have done an awful, awful thing, and if there was any doubt as to this current administration’s feelings towards the nation of Israel, no shadow of doubt ought to exist any longer.
What’s worse, is that they won’t even own up to their actions, like some overgrown toddler who kicks a puppy in full view of seven billion people, then vociferously denies having done it.
If this is the way we treat our allies, why would anyone want to be our ally? If this is the way we treat supposed friends and partners in a uniting cause, what assurance is there that we will step up and do the hard thing when we chose betrayal over fidelity when no one was holding a gun to our head, or putting pressure on us?
What we have to understand here if we have a hope of processing just how nefarious this resolution is, is the fact that this is a war against the God of Israel Himself, and the Jewish people are simply collateral damage. The issue was never the settlements, it was the temple mount and wailing wall, essentially Judaism’s most sacred religious sites.
Hatred for the one true God and anything that would remind the world of Him will only continue to grow, and this latest shot across the bow ought to remind us all just what these last days will look like, and allow us to wrap our minds around the fact that the whole world will be against Israel at some point in the near future.
Although I know many of you who read my writings count yourselves among those who stand with Israel, there are some of you who would simply shrug at what I have written, and wonder to yourself what it has to do with us. We are, after all in America, so how could our betrayal of Israel possibly affect us here in any way?
In order to unravel that yarn, we must first understand that within the pages of the Pentateuch there are traditionally contextual passages, ceremonially contextual passages, then there are general proclamations by God Himself which amount to nothing less than covenants, that are neither geographically contextual, nor have an expiration date.
Among God’s many proclamations, there is one which is covenantal that applies to this recent event more than any other and it is neither ceremonial nor traditional, but rather a covenant He made for all time, for all peoples, and for all circumstances which had the seed of Abraham as its primary and singular focus.
Genesis 12:1-3, “Now the Lord had said to Abraham: ‘Get out of your country, from your kindred and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’”
What we have done is nothing less than provoke the wrath of God by our actions, and though we might readily forget many a thing – even who our friends are and who are enemies are – God does not forget. God keeps His covenants and this ought to be a reason for great concern and trepidation for this nation. God keeps His covenants, He does it from a position of omnipotence rather than one of impotence, and so there is nothing standing in His way, nothing that can stop Him, nothing that can keep Him from carrying out His promise.
Deuteronomy 7:9-11, “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; and He repays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack with him who hates Him; He will repay him to his face.”

For the past few weeks I’ve been buried under an avalanche of hyperbole, baseless supposition, and borderline hysteria. Oddly enough, contrary to what one might expect, these suppositions had less to do with the electoral college, or the election, and more to do with Christmas, the validity of Christmas, or whether or not we as Christians should even make mention of it.
With titles so grim and dire as to make any clickbait site salivate at the potential of hits, I was bombarded with warnings ranging from being physically punished to having my salvation stripped from me if I were to commit the seemingly unpardonable sin of saying Merry Christmas.
If such hysteria were contained, if it was only a handful of people forwarding the e-mails declaring that if you say Merry Christmas you are unknowingly and unwittingly pledging fealty to Satan, then I’d let it go, and move on to other matters. It does, however, become a problem when I get the ‘is this true?’ e-mails along with the convoluted ramblings of lonely men who have nothing better to do than to create an issue where no issue exists.
As such, here I go making friends again: First, I do not care what day Jesus was born on! It could have been March 12, June 17, August 9, or yes, even December 25. I am not celebrating a day; I am celebrating an event. It is the reality of the birth of God’s son that we are remembering and reminiscing over. It is the reality of God’s love made manifest and the hope of mankind being born in a manger in Bethlehem.
It matters not a whit what day this took place. All that matters is that it did. Jesus was born of a virgin, in a manger, in Bethlehem, and the angels declared “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
The reality of Christ’s birth is not something we remember on one day during the calendar year, it is a reality that we live every day of our lives. It is something upon which we meditate and reflect because it was the embodiment of God’s love for mankind made manifest in the living, breathing, animated reality of Jesus Christ the Lord.
So, to answer publicly the questions I’ve received privately throughout the past few weeks, I do not believe saying Merry Christmas is akin to taking the mark of the beast, nor do I believe that reflecting upon the birth of the Son of God is a sin, whether you do it on December 25th, or on January 22.
As long as we remember that Christmas is not about glut and gifts, or trees and treats, as long as we remember that we are celebrating an event and not a day, and that this singularly history making event made a way for us to be reconciled unto God, then Merry Christmas to you!
With love in Christ,

A Stay of Execution!
A stay of execution does not a pardon make. I realize that for the individual being walked up the gallows, feeling the rough noose slipping over his head and feeling it tighten around his neck the distinction is meaningless at best, but once he has had time to process, once he has had time to assess, once he has time to come to terms with the reality that he will live to see another sunrise, eventually, inevitably, he will be confronted with the unyielding reality that sooner or later the walk down the gallows will commence anew, and the feel of the tightening rope will once more be a reality.
What happened in America last night was a stay of execution. It was not a pardon. We must be very clear about this because I know as surely as I am sitting here that the voices will begin to chirp anew insisting that God has somehow forgiven a nation that never repented of its sins, and that He has somehow restored a nation that has never humbled itself. Just because we managed to dodge a protracted, painful, and pernicious suicide by political correctness last night, it does not mean that we have somehow come into fellowship with God anew as a nation.
It simply means that God has shown this nation grace, He has stayed its judgment for a season, and if true change is not evident beginning with the church and sweeping out from there, when next He weighs us, when next He will be called upon to once more decide whether He will stay our execution or allow judgment to be poured forth, we will be judged not only for what we are profoundly guilty of up until this point, but also for the season of grace we will have once again squandered from here on in.
Yes, I do believe last night was an act of sovereign grace. If this election had gone the other way, I am certain we would have been at war with Russia within six months of Madame Chairman Rodham being sworn in, and that the persecution against the household of faith would have been accelerated to a breakneck speed.
A merciful God has once more shown this nation mercy, and now it is up to us to decide what we will do with the mercy we’ve been given. It is up to us to decide what we will do with the reprieve and stay of execution that was handed down by the Judge of the Universe.
This is just the first of many critical moments we will have to face as a nation, and if you think it will be rainbows and kittens from here on in you are fooling yourself.
So, yes, take a second, breathe a sigh of relief, say a prayer of thanks, enjoy the sunshine on your face, but then roll up your sleeves and get to work. Not tonight, not tomorrow, not next week, not whenever we get around to it and we have nothing left on our agenda.
The countdown clock has already started ticking, and in what will seem like the blink of an eye this nation’s case will once more be up for review. What we do from this point to that will determine whether we still have a future, and whether our stay of execution will once more be extended.
Do I believe that we’ve avoided judgment altogether? No, I do not, but the best we could have ever hoped for was a reprieve, a delay, a season of grace wherein we could return to the purity of simply being about our Father’s business and preaching Jesus unashamedly once more.
We have so much work to do, and time is shorter than we might think.
With love in Christ,

The Last Stand! (Partial Radio Transcript)
(As of the airing of this broadcast new evidence has come to light wherein one of the highest members of the Clinton campaign, namely her chief of staff, is actively participating in satanic rituals, something called spirit cooking, which is as occult as occult can get. Sorry to spoil it for those who are still riding their high horses, imbued with their own sanctimony and self-righteousness, but these two candidates are not equally evil. One is surrounded by individuals who by all accounts are actively practicing satanism, have been known to try and find levers by which to influence the church, and who will likely do all in their power to eviscerate and silence the church once they come into power. Anyway, since someone went through the trouble of typing out the radio program, I wanted to include a portion of it. Make no mistake; this is the last opportunity you will have to affect change in this country. What you do with this opportunity is solely on you.)
So here we are. By the time the next program rolls around chances are a new president elect will have emerged, and there will either be a lot of snowflakes sitting in the corner, sucking their thumbs and thinking about cutting themselves, with the Hollywood elites packing up in anticipation of moving to Canada, or there will be the average folks who will mourn in silence as they always do, and just buckle down and keep trying to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads.
As I’ve said on previous occasions on this program, I do not believe that the polls reflect the reality on the ground, and I do believe it will be a surprising turnout, as well as a surprising result, but the apparatus has been at this for so long, the machine is so well oiled and ready for this last hurtle that it’s still up in the air as far as I am concerned. All things being equal, if this were a real election where dead people didn’t vote, and where ballots weren’t stolen, and where machines didn’t magically switch your vote to the other candidate, and where you weren’t intimidated when walking into your polling station, this whole issue would be a nonstarter. It is because corruption is so prevalent, and a certain political party has adopted the ‘win at all cost’ mentality that this thing is still a tossup.
That said however, I must confess to a certain level of glee upon hearing that the FBI is reopening the whole sordid case of the e-mails and the scandal that has ensued. It is doubtless that Madam Chairman Rodham is likely having the worst week ever, and even with the bias that is at this juncture undeniable the polls are starting to show it.
So if anyone listening, which I must confess is highly unlikely, but if anyone listening is still on the Hillary Depends sponsored tugboat to prison, then you are on it with the full knowledge of just how corrupt the entire machine is, just how deplorable this entire crime family is, and you have no excuse.
Now, I do want to say, that if they reopened this case, then there’s something there, and it’s not a slap on the wrist kind of something. If James Comey put his career on the line in order to send letters to congress informing them that they found more evidence, then whatever that evidence is, is earth shattering.
So, it is likely that if Madame Chairman Rodham does become president elect, she will be indicted, so let the words ‘President Tim Kayne’ roll across your tongue a few times. Just do it, please, for me, say it, say it out loud without throwing up a little in your mouth. President Tim Kayne. President Tim Kayne.
Now I want you to use your imagination just a little, and imagine the ever emasculated, effeminate, non-confrontational man that Mr. Kayne obviously is sitting across a table from Vladimir Putin, or Xi Jinping, or Tayip Erdogan, or even Angela Merkel. Yes, I honestly believe that even Angela Merkel can browbeat Tim Kayne into submission. That is how weak of a man he seems to be by all indications.
So, yeah, it’s about more than Trump versus Hillary. There are so many more tangential and tertiary issues that we must contend with that taking this election lightly will be our own undoing.
On the other hand, President Mike Pence does have a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Again, not telling you who to vote for, but if you are looking for a Christian to be one heartbeat away from being the most powerful man in the world, then the Rodham Kayne ticket is not the ticket for you.
Like I’ve said before, and there is no obfuscation here, I like Mike Pence. I say thing having done my due diligence, having done my research, having listened to his speeches, and yes, I like Mike Pence. He is solid. I like him a lot, and knowing that God works in mysterious ways, who know?
Anyway, yeah, if you’re still voting for Hillary, I can’t help you, I’m sorry you hurt your head, and I’m sorry logic and reason have escaped you altogether.
Just as an aside, the reason this whole thing has been reignited as far as the e-mails scandal is concerned, is because of something found on a certain Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Now in case you don’t know the name Anthony Weiner, he is a former congressman from the state of New York who was disgraced for various reasons, the latest being sending lewd messages to a sixteen-year-old girl. The man is a sexual predator. Not someone who made lewd comments, an actual, honest to goodness, keep your children away from this man, sexual predator. By the way, he’s now checked into a sex clinic. As far as what a sex clinic is, your guess is as good as mine. But yeah. Good times.
Two things here, because the need to be pointed for the sake of logic and reason: First, this was an elected official. The people of New York elected him as their representative in Congress. So the idea that the best, brightest, most selfless most moral individuals get into politics needs to be reassessed. Yes, there are some exceptions, such as the aforementioned Mike Pence, but by and large politics is a cesspool, and even dipping your toe into it for a minute is likely to give you a staph infection.
The second thing worth noting is that this is the kind of chaff Chairman Rodham surrounds herself with. This is the kind of bottom feeding, sleazy, sort of sends chills up your spine people she likes to have in her cabal. Oh, by the way, Senior Weiner’s now estranged wife is also Hillary’s right hand person. Just in case you know, details didn’t make their way in your twitter feed as you were too busy tattooing ‘I’m with Her’ on your forehead.
If you’re with her, you are with a criminal, an individual who has one position in public, and one in private, meaning you don’t know what she really believes, or worse, will believe whatever the person paying her the most money wants her to believe. If you’re with her, you are with an enabler of sexual assault, you are with an individual that has no scruples or moral compass, or true empathy for the plight of those around her. If you are with her, you are with late term and partial birth abortion, you are with the persecution of the saints, you are with the betrayal of Israel, you are with the individual who wants the nation your ancestors bled and died for to become just another tin pot banana republic wherein she is the tyrant and we are all her subjects. If you are with her, you are with bondage, you are with the silencing of dissent, you are with tyranny.
Like I said, I’m not telling you who to vote for, just laying out the facts.
I had this conversation with a friend the other day, and he is as American as American can be. His ancestors came over on the Mayflower, his people lived through the civil war, and he was trying to say that he was undecided as far as who he was going to vote for, or if he was even going to vote in this election.
I explained to him that I should have less of a vested interest about this nation’s future than him, because my people never shed blood to defend its freedom, my people did not die trying to make the dream of a constitutional republic into a reality, and my people never gave their last full measure in defense of liberty.
Again it’s not about voting for a man or a woman to be president, it’s not about Trump or Chairman Rodham, it’s about the future of the nation, and what you want this nation to look like come November 9th.
It’s about doing what we can to slow down the decay, the decline, the corrosion, the corruption, the graft, and the implosion, of this once great nation, and perhaps even righting some wrongs along the way.
Yes, I believe judgment can be delayed. As I’ve said before, I do not believe that one candidate winning over the other means that God has foregone judgment altogether. But it can be delayed, and a delay is the best scenario we can hope for as a nation.
Nineveh’s judgment was delayed for 120 years. Personally, I’ll take whatever delay we can get because our judgment has been long in coming. So if it’s four years, then we have four more years to labor, to preach, to call people to repentance, and to lift high the banner of Christ. If it’s eight years, then eight years it is.
The point is, if the other candidates happens to swindle this election, somehow, then I think we’re at war with Russia within six months of her getting sworn in. The problem here is that you can’t un-break an egg, you can’t un-spill milk, and your regret over the sanctimony others injected into you and that you embraced will be utterly useless. Some things you can’t walk back, take back, or undo, and this election will be one of those things, for better or worse.
Not to belabor the point any more than I have, but I do believe this is the defining crossroads of this present generation. We will look back on this coming Tuesday and either breathe a sigh of relief over what we managed to delay or avoid, or we will weep bitter tears, and point the finger at one another, and perhaps rightly so, for allowing a handful of Mormons and political hacks who will be unemployed if Trump wins,to sway our vote.
There is one other thing that is worth noting here, and it’s something that to the best of my knowledge no one has brought up, and that is the potty mouth audio is the worst they had on Donald Trump. How have I come upon this conclusion?
Well, news that they were reopening the investigation into the Hillary servers came out on Friday afternoon or so. If they had anything more in their arsenal as far as Trump was concerned, it would have been blasted on every major news outlet come Monday morning. The fact that they haven’t come out with anything more, the fact that there’s no more audio, video, or drawings from when he was a toddler, means that after having spent the better part of four decades in public life, after having been a wealthy entrepreneur all of his life, the worst they have on Donald Trump is that he has a potty mouth and said something unseemly eleven years ago.
And you know it’s not like they haven’t tried. You know it’s not like they haven’t combed and scoured the sewers of New York for anyone who will come forward with some sort of evidence as to Trump having done something truly vile.
It also tells me that there’s nothing on his inner circle either, whether that be his children, or men like Rudy, Doctor Carson, Newt Gingrich, even Chris Christie, who I guess has bridge gate hanging over his head. However, bridge gate is like a raindrop in a tsunami when compared to the absolute onslaught of lawlessness being brought to light regarding Chairman Rodham and her ilk.
They’ve got nothing, and they know they’ve got nothing. So all we’ve got is potty mouth eleven years ago, and him calling a woman who was supposed to be the face of a new chain of gyms porky, because she’d put on fifty or so pounds. That this woman was an accessory to murder and was actually on trial for attempted murder seems to have escaped the Clinton camp.
If they had any sort of evidence based accusations, they would have trumpeted it already.
That’s right, evidence. Not hearsay, evidence. You know the stuff they have on Hillary Clinton that is so damning and overwhelming that the head of the FBI felt it was imperative to reopen the investigation ten days before the elections, evidence.
It’s only picking between the better of two evils when you compare these two candidates to a third, as yet unnamed party, someone of high moral integrity or the such. When you compare these two candidates to each other, it’s no longer the better of two evils. One is starting to look like a saint comparatively speaking, and you know I’m right even if you don’t want to admit it to yourself.
I don’t know what more I can say about this that hasn’t been said, but I’m just going to keep on saying it because there are still Christians out there who decided the best course of action was no action at all, and that is not an option come Tuesday.
With love in Christ,

On the Elections (Radio Show Transcript)
Welcome to the program and thank you for joining us. Yes, indeed, this is the light of truth radio broadcast, I am your host Michael Boldea, we are live, and boy has this been an interesting week.
If you happen to own stock in the company that manufactures Milk of Magnesia, Maalox, Mylanta, or Rolaids, well, congratulations, this week likely made sales spike and you just made a nice chunk of change. For everyone else, it was just heart burn and uncertainty and vitriol, and everything else that this election cycle has wrought.
As I’ve said from the beginning, and will continue to insist upon until this drama is over, man cannot save what only God can, and God will only save it if repentance is evident and forthcoming. That said, I disagree with the premise that the difference between these two candidates is like choosing whether you want to be butchered by a box cutter or a scalpel. A more apropos comparison is whether you would like to hit a wall going 150 miles per hour, or 45 miles per hour.
At 150 miles per hour death is certain, it is a foregone conclusion, and all that’s left to decide is the color of the casket and whether or not you will have bagpipes at your funeral.
At 45 miles per hour there is still a chance of survival, although you may break a few bones, not look as pretty, and hurt for some time.
Now, I realize bombastic pontification is fun for some, but I find it useless. I also realize that it is human nature to try and cloak cowardice in nobility and make it out to seem something it’s not, but as a former candidate for president pointed out not so long ago, this is a binary election. What does this mean? Well, it means that this is a two horse race, and one of the horses is going to win, like it or not.
These are your two choices kids, and make no mistake, one of these two bastions of virtue will be president of these United States come January. That’s it, no other options on the table, nothing more to say about it, no what if scenarios, that’s it. Yes, I’ve heard the rumors of Marshall Law being declared and the current crop of politicians remaining in the white house indefinitely, but I don’t give it much credence. It will ignite a civil war almost instantly, and I don’t believe the armed forces would go along with it to be quite honest with you.
Those who wear the uniform, those who serve in the armed forces, they are by and large noble individuals who adhere to the constitution of the United States, and who have sworn to protect the nation from all enemies both foreign and domestic. The news is already leaking that there is much unease and dismay among those in the FBI and the Department of Justice for not prosecuting Hillary Clinton on her crimes, so it’s not as though the entire populace working in government at this moment in time are heartless, soulless zombies.
The higher ups, the top tier, the echelons who have seized the reins of power? Oh yes, to be sure they are, but that’s a handful of people who only have bluster and words to keep them in power.
It’s like ancient Rome all over again, wherein the slaves didn’t realize the outnumbered the Romans 3 to 1 until the moment they did. The reason it took them so long to realize they outnumbered their masters is because there was no uniform for them to wear. They dressed in regular garb, and so they could never identify each other as being slaves, or deduce just how many there were.
This is where the Clinton campaign made its first tactical, and quite frankly, unforced error. They gave the slaves uniforms. They labeled the common folk, and allowed them to identify each other and realize that they outnumber the masters. You’ve all heard it, it’s been out there for some time: Deplorables. Just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? But see, people started looking at who exactly was included in this basket of deplorables, and realized that they too had been included and a lot of their family and friends and acquaintances, their mechanics and their doctors and their garbage man and their manicurist and their pastor and their professor.
Let’s face it, contrary to what Bill Clinton said, it’s not just southern rednecks with no teeth and overalls that will be voting for Donald Trump in less than thirty days. The people started to look around after having ascertained what defined a deplorable, and came to the conclusion that there were far more deplorables out there than the system would have thought possible. You know, the people who keep getting told that they are in the minority because they oppose abortion, or are told they are bigots because they like to feel safe in their own towns and homes, or are told they are intolerant, unchristian, and hateful because they insist on some sort of vetting for immigrants from Middle Eastern countries. Once they were defined, those people started looking around, and lo and behold, more and more deplorables came out of the woodwork, and they realized this may well be the last and final opportunity to overthrow the empire, and upend the power structure.
I know Christians have this tendency of comparing Trump to Biblical figures, from Cyrus, to Samson, to everyone in between it seems, but I’ve never gone there, will not go there, but what I can do is say that Trump, at least to me, seems more of a Spartacus than any Biblical figure in particular.
As I’ve told you before, I am a student of history, and once upon a time, before babies, and writing books and radio programs and such, I used to devour the biographies of historical figures. If you don’t know, Spartacus started out as a man of the system, a soldier who served as an auxiliary in the Roman army in Macedonia. He then deserted the army, left the system behind, was captured, sold into slavery, and became a gladiator of great renown.
Spartacus started out with 70 odd men, and built up an army of slaves that estimates put at 120,000. He was a man of the people, and the people followed him, and with everything the Roman empire threw at him he always grew in notoriety. So, again, you can make comparisons to a lot of people regarding a lot of things, but this is 2016, and this is a game for all the marbles. No one is pulling any punches, and cornered sewer rats are quite the violent little things.
Again, all this from an objective bird’s eye view of the situation, because as I’ve stated before, I’m not about to go politicking on behalf of anyone. This program is about truth, about Jesus, about pointing out things that the feckless and spineless either refuse to point out, or do not see because of their biases.
As far as the eleven-year-old audio tape of Donald Trump saying unsavory things, yes I heard about it, it is, as many in his own campaign have said, indefensible, but what I find most alarming is that the perverts, pederasts and pedophiles seem to have all of a sudden discovered morality and are incensed by Donald Trump’s words. They even insist that it disqualifies him from being president.
Come on, seriously? If you put out absolute filth every single day of your life, if you’ve pushed for the removal of God from society and an embracing of every aberrant, reprobate, immoral, abominable, filthy, dirty, animalistic, hedonistic practice under the sun for all of your adult life but find what Donald Trump said beyond the pale, irredeemable, and unforgivable, you are a hypocrite, a liar, a fool, and a buffoon.
I know the pampered ears of those who couldn’t bear to hear such language are all aflutter, but I’ve heard worse talk from teenagers in the park where I take my daughter to play. Do you know the stuff kids are saying nowadays? Do you know the kind of language children are using? And yet, we are to believe that the Hollywood elites, and the higher-ups of the Democratic party are all innocent little lambs who only come out of their respective churches to have lunch before they run right back in to sing hymns and meditate upon Scripture.
Said the Fox to the chicken,
Said the fox to the chicken,
Come away from that mangy old dog,
‘Cause he barks and he gruffs and he’s loud and robust,
Get away from that mangy old dog.
Said the wolf to the lamb,
Said the wolf to the lamb,
Get away from that barking old mutt,
All I want’s to play, and he’s in the way,
Get away from that barking old mutt.
For those of you who understand what that meant, congratulations. If you think that the godless have your best interest at heart when they’re trying to fan the flames of anger because of something a man said eleven years ago, you’re fooling yourself. The wolf will never want what’s best for the lamb. The fox will never want what’s best for the chicken. Keep that in mind.
The only people that have a right to be incensed about what they heard on that audio are the Amish, and the Amish have no electricity, so that’s that. What boggles the mind is the double standard in today’s politics. Apparently a private conversation 11 years ago trumps actual rape nowadays. Apparently the words men speak trump their actions nowadays. Apparently selling out your country and your countrymen, using a political office to practice pay for play politics, and making every political decision you’ve ever made via the prism of personal gain is not nearly as bad as something someone said eleven years ago.
I’m not getting into this any further, and for those of you who keep writing in asking what about what so and so said, you are big boys and girls, and you can make up your mind for yourself regarding this election. My position has always been for you not to put your faith in a man rather than in God, or hope that things will change drastically in this nation without the dawning of repentance in the land.
Oh, and one more thing, because I really, really hate it when people try to use the Word of God to make a political point, when Paul is laying out the qualifications of a leader, it is the qualifications of a spiritual leader, and not a political one. Paul lays out the qualifications of a Bishop! So for someone to write a ten-page tome on how Donald Trump is not qualified to be president because he doesn’t meet the qualifications Paul set forth in first Timothy, sorry kids, 80% of pastors practicing today don’t meet the qualifications Paul set forth in first Timothy.
Sanctimony is disingenuous, and falling off a high horse may be dangerous to your overall health.
I realize full well that something someone said eleven years ago is of extreme import, but I don’t know if it is quite as important as the following:
1. Having no borders therefore having no country.
2. Going to war with Russia because once the American domino falls the only ones opposing globalism will be the Russians.
3. Allowing for Christian persecution on a grand scale, and the marginalization of all that is decent and good and just.
4. Having your right to protect yourself and your family legislated away by a Supreme Court that will be beholden to unscrupulous politicians and their agendas.
So, you weigh it out in your head and your heart, and you conclude for yourself what you’re going to do on November 8. What I’ve laid out is not partisan, it is not subjective, it is fact, proven, and confirmed.
If you want to get deeper into it, we can, from the undeniable disdain for God and anything having to do with Christianity, to the cult of baby murder, to a desire to do away with the second Amendment, all of it is there for you to see, documented and self-evident.
Another thing that is evident and self-evident is that they did this exact same thing to a man by the name of Herman Caine back in the 2008 elections. Remember him? Nice, grandfatherly type, soft spoken, with his nine, nine, nine plan? He got accused of rape by a handful of women who amazingly dropped their accusations right after Mister Caine dropped out of presidential contention. Who’d have thunk it? The problem is that they’ve been using the same playbook for so long the people have gotten wise to it. The people, yes, the common folk, those deplorables who are only good for whipping and paying taxes and being told they are ignorant and stupid for believing in God, and that they are worthless to society if they do not embrace every evil under the sun, the people have gotten wise to their tactics. They have cried wolf one too many times, and now no one believes them anymore.
Enough of politics though, because I’m about to get angry, and I don’t want to get angry because when I get angry I tend to run off at the mouth and I may say something that might offend the sensibilities of the modern day two faced hypocrites in the church.
As an aside, there was even talk by a high level staffer in one of the two parties to actually infiltrate the Catholic church and start veering it away from its positions on abortion, homosexual marriage and the such, (all this thanks to Wikileaks by the way, and if you want to know what your elected officials think of you, your faith, your country, and your beliefs, I don’t know, maybe read a few of those e-mail exchanges), but the point I was trying to make is that although they are in the beginning stages of infiltrating the Catholic church, I think they’ve already infiltrated the evangelical church.
If you marched in a gay pride parade waving a rainbow flag but can’t possibly bring yourself to vote for Trump because of something he said eleven years ago, well, let’s just say you are disingenuous at best and leave it at that.
Did you know they just came out with a study that an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be heard sixteen days after conception? Sixteen Days! Let that sink in.
For the love of all that’s just and noble and human, let that sink in. Sixteen days! Sixteen days after conception you can hear the beating heart of the baby you and your significant other conceived.
But yeah, I’ll vote for the murder mills to keep churning out baby parts because a man said something horrid to another man in a camper eleven years ago.
Trump has a potty mouth; yep, all the reason I needed to vote for the other side!
Sit on the sidelines if you must; your choice, your call. Just do it for the right reasons, and not because some bloated has been on some mountain somewhere is telling you to do it. He’s got round the clock security, and lives in a fortress on a mountain. He will be unaffected by the tide of jihadi warriors coming to exact vengeance on the Great Satan.
We all live with the consequences of our actions, don’t we? Sure, we can repeat the ‘God’s in control’ adage to ourselves to make ourselves feel better about our indecision, but God uses people, He always has, and if the ‘God’s in control’ excuse were a viable one, then Peter, Paul, and the rest of those who died for the gospel’s sake were fools for not simply shutting up, doing nothing, and letting the storm pass over their heads.
God was in control then too, wasn’t He? Why did they have to stand? Why did they have to fight? Why did they have to defend the truth? Why didn’t they just shrug their shoulders, and comfort themselves with the ‘God’s in control’ mantra?
Why even do this show? God’s in Control! Why even preach the gospel? God’s in control! Why did you swerve when that drunk driver veered into your lane? God is in control! Why do anything other than gaze at our navels, pick our noses, and decide on which buffet we will congregate at after we sing a couple hymns and hear a message on the benefits of positive self-esteem? God’s in Control!
I’ve been dealing with this all week, and it’s getting to me. I despise disingenuous arguments. I despise copout mantras that make no sense if they are taken to their logical conclusion. Most of all I despise the weakness and instability of the modern day church, and their inability to incorporate the wisdom of Solomon into their decision making process.
The truth is this: We have a choice between two very flawed candidates. One plans on destroying the very country you and your children reside in and sacrifice on the altar of globalism, while the other has personal moral failings going back eleven years, and chances are a lot more recent than that. One of these two is going to be president. There’s no way around that now.
One of them by all evident data loves this country, surrounds himself with capable, even tempered, and yes, oftentimes Christian individuals, and could just have easily stayed in his penthouse suite, watched soap operas and played with his grand kids the rest of his life, ‘cause let’s face it he doesn’t need the money, while the other has been sucking at the teat of the taxpayer for most of her adult life, and public service has made her a very wealthy woman. The only way you can become wealthy in public service is to use the power and position of your office to peddle the influence thereof for cash. It’s how Romanian politicians are filthy rich while the people are living hand to mouth.
For these people, the agenda is supreme. It is singular. It is all. There is no family, no love, no friends, no patriotism, no fidelity to one’s constituency, just the agenda. Globalism in all its deformed, decrepit wonder.
While all this political theater is going on, you have this current administration playing checkers with a chess grandmaster, and trying to pick a fight that they will ultimately lose. The latest, and this is the kind of diplomacy we’ve been getting for the past few years, is that we are planning to allow 9,000 ISIS fighters to escape, so they can attack Russian troops. Simultaneously, Vladimir Putin just ordered Russian Government officials to immediately bring back any of their children or family members who happen to be studying abroad.
This has the potential of turning very ugly, very quickly, and this time the American citizenry will suffer the consequences of our government’s actions in ways as yet not quantified or calculated.
I will make a prediction, again, prediction not prophecy, but the slimmer the chances of the Democrats winning the presidency get, the more this current administration will try to goad the Russians into a skirmish. If they see that their agenda of globalism will be hampered, they will try to take out the Russian threat to it before the inauguration of the next president of these United States.
So that’s it. That’s the truth. Do with it what you will. Unlike many others I will not tell you what to do because I believe you are intelligent enough to make up your own mind, and follow your heart.
With love in Christ,

Homosexual Marriage Part 2 (Radio Show Transcript)
So before we get into this let’s clarify some things for the peanut gallery.
It is likely that whenever you bring up the topic of homosexuality in a crowd, there is always one clown that will bring up the passage in Leviticus where it talks about shellfish and wearing mixed fabrics in the same context as homosexuality.
For some reason that shuts Christians down and for the life of me I don’t understand how that is. Either you don’t know enough of the Word of God to combat this foolish argument, or you’re just averse to confrontation.
There is this push to make the church world think that the topic of homosexuality is reserved to the Old Testament, something we could easily overlook or dismiss because it’s mentioned in the same breath as eating shellfish or wearing mixed fabrics.
Honestly, the only thing I detest more than intellectual dishonesty is intellectual dishonesty perpetrated by an individual void of intellect.
But just in case one of these mental midges brings up the shellfish and the fabric thing whenever discussing this topic refer them to Revelation 22:15.
Revelation 22:15, “But outside are the dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”
If that passage isn’t quite clear enough, how about 1 Corinthians 6:9-10?
1 Corinthians 6:9-10, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Nope, doesn’t say one thing about those who eat shellfish or who wear mixed fabric clothes, but it sure does mention the sexually immoral doesn’t it? It sure does mention both homosexual, and sodomite doesn’t it?
Come on. It’s intellectually dishonest to try and somehow conclude that the practice of homosexuality is not a sin in the sight of God.
We can get into that whole Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve thing, but it’s childish, and we’re past that. We’re past it because the endgame here isn’t homosexual marriage, it is the desecration of God’s creation, it is the ruin, the violation, the defilement and sacrilege of God’s crowning creation, the only thing created in His image.
This is the devil’s endgame, and the church is just sitting there picking its nose going on about Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve.
The minions of Satan have already moved on from the issue of homosexuality and now the battle ground is transgenderism, a wholly new perversion of God’s creation.
It’s not about how you were born, but what you identify as that trumps everything, including natural law. There are actually people going along with the madness of calling Bruce Jenner Kaitlyn because he put on a dress and some lipstick. Seriously? Come on now. We can’t be this foolish and self-destructive.
All I know is this: if you’re a man wearing a dress trying to go to the same bathroom my little girl just went in, it will take an act of God to keep me from putting you in the dirt.
I’ve had it with this lunacy. I’ve had it with the church sitting by and not even voicing an objection to this rot, this infection, this pollution, this perversion of the natural and the normal.
No, I am not a violent individual. In fact, I have never done violence to anyone in my life save for punching my brother Sergiu in the arm a few times during horseplay. So those of you that were warming up your fingers getting ready to send me a sternly worded rebuke for having the audacity to say I would defend my little girl from pederasts and perverts, spare me.
There is absolutely no passage in the Bible that would mandate my sitting idly by while something like that happened. Period!
I will endure persecution for my Jesus, I will endure trials and tribulations for my Lord, I will suffer the loss of all things for His name’s sake, but there is no glory or spiritual connotation to putting my daughter’s safety at risk because some mentally ill individual decided this was his special playtime.
Once there were warriors among us. Once there were men of valor among us. Once there were those who stood against overwhelming odds because it was the right thing to do, and not the expedient thing to do.
What has happened to the church? The only individuals representing the household of faith right now are either fossils who should have retired with the end of the Reagan administration, or feminized, soft footed, limp wristed girly men who go out of their way to be politically correct from the pulpit lest anyone’s feelings get hurt.
There is no need to discuss homosexual marriage, because homosexuality itself and the practice thereof is a sin in the sight of God. An abomination in fact, and no amount of sensitivity training can get around this fact.
The math is simple on this matter. Do you love God more than you love your sin, or do you love your sin more than you love God?
If you love God more than you love your sin, then you will repent of it, abstain from the practice of it, and draw ever closer to God. If you love your sin more than you love God then you will attempt to find loopholes where none exist, you will attempt to twist the word of God to suit your lifestyle, and you will seek out preachers and teachers that will give you a pass and not insist upon repentance.
Now before we get into this whole ‘animals in the wild sometimes have homosexual tendencies’ red herring, you are not an animal. If you think you are, then that’s on you. You are, as I’ve said before, the crown jewel of God’s creation, with the ability to abstain from sin, with the ability to walk away from it, with the ability to distance yourself from those things you know might lead you to sin in the first place. So enough with the penguin that may have been homosexual.
If we really want to upturn the apple cart and at this juncture why shouldn’t we, what we should really be discussing today isn’t homosexual marriage, but rather why the church by and large has been so silent on the matter, and so unwilling to call sin by its name.
The number one reason the church, or at least those who are the supposed representatives of the church have been so silent on the matter of the sin of homosexuality is because they themselves are compromised.
“Oh, no he didn’t!”
“Oh, yes he did.”
There is a reason the Bible gives detailed instructions as to what a bishop or an overseer of God’s people should be. There is a reason the Word of God gets specific about the virtues a leader should possess, and the vices he ought not possess.
Let’s just read it because this is more telling as to why lethargy, indifference, lukewarmness, and outright apathy has gripped the church.
1 Timothy 3:2-7, “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous, one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.”
Now that’s a lot to unpack. Nothing about education, pedigree, the right look, but a lot about being temperate, sober-minded, the husband of one wife, not greedy for money, not covetous, not given to wine, and a plethora of other things.
The reason today’s leaders cannot stand against the darkness is because they fail to meet the criterion set forth by the Word of God for being a leader in the first place, and being compromised individuals themselves, they cannot speak against sin.
It’s hard to rebuke homosexuality when you are getting massages and the such by strange fellows in strange places isn’t it? It’s hard to rebuke adultery when you’re on your third marriage, and your previous two wives have filed restraining orders because you were known to drink a little too much and use their faces as punching bags.
It’s hard to rebuke drinking when you get arrested for a DUI. It’s hard to preach against the dangers of drugs when a search of your car turns up crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
The reason the world is slip sliding into hell is because the spiritual leaders we’ve appointed in authority over us are men who will not speak the truth for fear of being called out on their own sin.
The reason the church is largely ineffective in the world is because those who ought to be preaching the righteousness of God and holiness unto God are too busy pandering to whoever will give them the biggest donation or finance the purchase of their next mansion.
How much do you have to hate someone not to tell them the truth? How much do you have to hate someone not to tell them that save for repentance and being washed clean in the blood of Christ they will spend eternity in the outer darkness where there is but weeping and gnashing of teeth.
You can’t have your sin and Jesus too. That’s just the way it is. Just as an adulterer must repent of his adultery to be reconciled unto God, just as a liar must repent of his lying in order to be reconciled unto God, a homosexual must repent of his homosexuality in order to be reconciled unto God.
Just as there is no such thing as a vegan carnivore, there is no such thing as a homosexual Christian. The terms are mutually exclusive. You may have been homosexual then by having found Jesus you no longer practice it, but you cannot be reconciled to God and still actively practice homosexuality.
Through repentance, Jesus will forgive your sin, but He will not pander to it. There are no special dispensations for homosexuals wherein they can keep living in sin and still be walking in God’s will.
What we have to realize that although homosexuality is a sin like any other, it is also different than any other sin in that for those who practice it, it becomes their identity.
The last time I checked there were no onanist pride parades, or fornicator pride parades, or adulterer pride parades, or liar pride parades, but there sure are a plethora of homosexual pride parades aren’t there?
Homosexuality is one of those sins that consumes the entirety of an individual and they define themselves by this one thing.
The number two reason the church, or at least those who are the supposed representatives of the church have been so silent on the matter of the sin of homosexuality is because they have altogether stopped preaching repentance, or the need for repentance.
We’ve embraced this la-dee-da, do what you want God needs to fill heaven sort of mentality, and we have altogether done away with the Word of God as pertains to salvation and what is incumbent upon us to do in order to attain eternal life.
We choose to gloss over or otherwise pretend as though we’ve forgotten that Jesus told the adulterous woman to go and sin no more, or that He along with all His disciples preached repentance, or a turning away from the world and the things thereof.
How can men know of the need for repentance when those we’ve entrusted with feeding the sheep refuse to speak of it? How can men know of the need for repentance when instead of feeding the sheep of God’s pasture, the so-called shepherds are too busy stuffing their own pockets?
When the Word tells us that without holiness no man shall see God, it is not exaggerating and it is not hyperbolizing. We need to stop listening to the fools who insist on twisting the Bible to suit the masses, and widen the path that is by Christ’s own declaration, narrow.
The third reason the church, or at least those who are the supposed representatives of the church have been so silent on the matter of the sin of homosexuality is because it’s good cover for their own failings and shortcomings.
In the twisted minds of some, if we can somehow agree that homosexuality is no longer a sin, then nothing can be deemed a sin any longer. If this is not an abomination in the sight of God, then why would He have a problem with a little pyramid scheme, or being overly friendly with the secretary, or using church funds to see the world first class, or dozens of other things for which men’s consciences once troubled them, but no longer.
We love to play the comparison game. “I may be bad, but at least I’m not as bad as so and so.”
“I may have had an inappropriate relationship with the deacon’s wife, but at least I didn’t text pictures of myself to teenage boys.” Thank kind of justification. If you don’t know who did it, it’s been done, and by a high profile preacher to boot.
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
