One time my son told me of a hilarious conversation that he had with some liberal friends who loved Obama. They were mad at Trump and vociferously running him down and he asked why they were so upset with him. They replied because of the tax cut.
He asked why they would be upset that they would pay less taxes. They responded that corporations would get lower taxes too.
They both work for corporations, and he asked why it would be bad for the corporation that they worked for to get a tax break too??? Wouldn’t the corporation be better able to give raises to employees and bonuses if they paid less in taxes? Wouldn’t these tax savings in part be used to expand which would create more job opportunities which would allow for promotions?
They quickly changed the subject and started deriding Trump because he wasn’t even capable of getting Obamacare repealed.
Incredulous at their answer my son asked, “Now let me get this straight, you are mad at Trump because he couldn’t get Obamacare repealed, and yet you love Obama who got it passed???
That one got them to scratching their heads and at that point, my son gave up and decided just to change the subject. He described this couple as being “good people” and said better friends could not be found. When I queried him on where all that bitterness towards Trump came from, he laughingly replied that he didn’t know, he guessed that they were just raised as liberals.
I told him that it was a case of constant propaganda from liberal networks that despise Trump. Is it just me or does anyone else find it odd how the mainstream media can take totally illogical thought processes derived from Democratic talking points and make otherwise seemingly intelligent good people believe the lies instead of using common logic?
Several years ago, I was involved with a movie about Jim Jones, the preacher who convinced his following in Guyana to drink poisoned Kool-Aide and commit mass suicide. As I went to the set and saw the story unfold, I began to understand the depravity of what this man was teaching his flock. It was amazing to learn of the mind control that he was able to exert over the people.
Highly esteemed Soviet-era Communist ruler Lenin once said, If you tell someone that snow is black instead of white long enough, they will believe it. Hitler and countless other dictators through the years have demonstrated this same point. Through the years with the advent of the Internet, social media, and micro-targeting techniques, propaganda has been perfected. North Korea, China, Cuba, and Iran are all extreme examples, but they pale into insignificance when compared to what Satan is doing right here at home in turning people away from God. He is the master of deceit and is in my mind the primary reason that Christians are the most persecuted people group in the world today.
Look at the changed views on illegal drugs, marriage, abortion, pornography, anarchy, pedophilia, and so on. Our society is abandoning morality and as a result, the world is following our lead. Things are acceptable today that were taboo just a few years ago. Whatever subject the Bible states is right, is deemed wrong, and what is wrong, is deemed to be right. It is happening in schools, churches, government, businesses, media, families, and the arts and entertainment industry. Constant bombardment and mind-bending brainwashing.
My hope was to put a dent in their effort by using the Jesus Alliance and other ministries to post-biblical truth daily to millions of people. Alas, we were and still are vastly out financed and outnumbered. Don’t get me wrong even if we reach a small number of people for Christ it will still be well worthwhile.
I pray daily for God to directly intervene and that whatever administration gains power will appoint decent and moral judges, and undo so many antichrist policies. I believe that the prayers of millions of Christians around the world can be effective and ask you to cry out to God yourself. The Bible predicts this satanic deceitful activity will increase right up until the end and many will fall victim to it, but as always, we are given instructions on how to combat it . . . Keep the faith and study God’s word the Holy Bible to find your truth in this deceitful world. If someone is advocating sin, you will know where it is coming from – Hell! Think it through logically.
Stay with the truth!
At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, and many false prophets will arise and mislead many. Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved . . .
