No, because I don't understand what in the world you're talking about.
Jesus said "My Kingdom is not of this World" and "But seek first the kingdom of God". Given that the biggest preoccupation of Christians today is the holding and wielding of earthly political power, are they seeking for the Kingdom of God in a voting booth?

Sounds a bit like Trump to me….

More to the point though….every partisan seems to want to lay claim to Jesus. Why would he vote for anyone or get involved in the political sphere at all?

“Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's"
That was the pre-Ruger era. Today he'd say render 30 rounds of 5.56 unto Caesar and the rest will be all good

I note that Jews have just closed this holy day on Thursday, Yom Kippur, a few hours ago on the east coast of the U.S. I hope that their names have been enrolled in the eternal Book of Life this day. I'm not Jewish, I no longer think that I'm Christian, either, although I was raised in Christianity. What all of us must seek is to do right.

Now this thread has double meaning, because I have very strong feelings that Jesus wouldn't have voted for Joe Biden and I'm extremely curious what motivation Christians have for voting for the biggest idiot that the democrats ever nominated, and second,.. Biden is so unlike Christ that he pretty much does the opposite of everything that Christ would do. Now, I'm not saying that Trump's perfect, neither of us are except for Christ,.. it just completely boggles my mind how and if Biden could still have Christian supporters right now if any.

Is this satire? I never know when it comes to American righties.

You mean Jesus would have voted for a narcissistic pathological liar who loves "grabbing pussies" and cheated on his wife with a porn star? Before or after that liar went through the eye of the needle? :p


I think Jesus was a pretty cool guy. But if the things written about him are somewhat true, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't care much for worldly leaders who hold material power and wealth. He would be more concerned about those who suffer because of them.

Somehow the voting booth didn't matter.

So is God's Grand Plan for the Future contingent on who sits in the Oval Office?
No, as it's the person that does the voting. God gave us free will to choose.

God's grand plan was for us to be enjoying his kingdom and living with him right now, but Satan took Adam's domain and became the "god of the world." Do you agree?

Also, do you think God lives in our universe? I don't think he does as he hates sin.

Nope.. Satan has never been powerful in my world.

That's a dangerous attitude. He has a healthy respect from me as I've seen what he's done.

Maybe it explains your... never mind.

It seems we are near the end times. Sir Isaac Newton predicted around 2060 and I think that's a good guess.

Why? The end time prophecies are being fulfilled.

Today’s news is full of false religions, warfare and natural disasters. This fulfills the tribulation.

Paul the apostle warned that the last days would bring a marked increase in false teaching. We have replace truth with falsity of evolution and evolutionary thinking. The atheist scientists rule now and the Christians likely won't be able to teach creation science in time, if ever.

Does this describe the majority of people today? They are lovers of self and self-interest, lovers of money and luxury, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy (atheists?), without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. I suspect yes due to not believing in God anymore, i.e. faith in no God/gods or atheism.

Prophecy of apostasy. We have embraced moral relativism, a philosophy which is tainting even the church. For example, many denominations are having a hard time defining marriage as being between one man and one woman, and many religious leaders today are openly supporting homosexuality. God said it is an abomination, a detestable sin. It is "shameful" and "unnatural."

The formation of the European Union and a reunified Germany fulfills the ten horned beasts that will rule before the second coming of Jesus and the rapture. Who talks about the rapture anymore (see my last comment)?

Israel now rules on its own.

I suppose Jesus said to beware as Jesus will come like a "thief in the night."

But if you vote for the right people....

one of those apostles ....

if evil wins on Earth, no one will be spared, that's why martyrs that die are saved - what you predict will be your own demise. if you are alive when they triumph - you will be one of them.

The only problem I have with this is that Donald Trump isn't my God,.. Jesus Christ is.
Is Donald Jesus' Vicar on Earth?

So,.. you think that Jesus would approve abortion? Or the LGBTQIA community?
Where did Jesus say to followers to seize earthly political and put a stop to anything?

If your objections to abortion and the LGBTQIA community is they're sins, don't forget to use the awesome power of the gubbermint once you gain control against the greatest sin out there. Refusing to be a Christian.
