Or the misuse of our Faith
I am totally baffled by the large number of people supporting Alabama Supreme Chief Judge Roy Moore who has chosen to use the Christian Religion to propel his political ambitions. I am not confused by the Judge’s actions. His actions are easily recognized and our history has been filled with such desires. Judge Moore wants to go to Washington D. C. and hold office not very hard to figure out. Washington D. C. is a whorehouse with monuments. Most men go around with their penis in one hand and a fifth of whiskey in the other and most never know which is which. Our country has recognized the history of power mongering people and developed self governing system to deal with it. Ours in best known to man. On occasion it may need be corrected but seldom.
My disconcertion is the many, many Christians that wish to turn over my Lord and Savior over to these men and women to use as a tool. Proclaiming the word of God to assert their politicial power. The best known attempt of this political use of my religion was the use of text out of:
Genesis 9: 21 – 27
[21 Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. 24 So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. 25 Then he said: “Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brethren.” 26 And he said: “Blessed be the Lord, The God of Shem, And may Canaan be his servant. 27 May God enlarge Japheth, And may he dwell in the tents of Shem; And may Canaan be his servant.” ]
to justify their desire to keep African – Americans in involuntary servitude for 400 years. While we listen to the politicians spout the information we missed a very important spiritual principle that is given in this text.
Ask yourself if you are a Christian or a politician carrying a cross. If you are the latter, carry on, we know you and what you represent. If you say Jesus Christ is you Lord and Savior and you wish to propel political issues with spiritual principles, then remember the last time Jesus was turned over to politicians. We may wake up one Friday morning and look upon a cross and hear, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do”. THEY WILL CRUCIFY HIM!!!!
This is a strong statement and language may be offensive
