That’s not salvation. That’s Satan’s mind-job to get people spinning their mental wheels, wasting their time and money in ways that keep them busy and feeling good about themselves so they have reason to ignore the truth: No one is righteous, not even one, except for Jesus Christ. While faith without deeds is indeed dead (James 2), wrongly-placed faith is also dead. Furthermore, the kind of “deeds” mentioned in the Qur’an aren’t deeds at all, but rather, heinous if not mindless acts of violence extolled by a mad man and perpetrated on innocents by mad men. It’s JUNK, and I can’t even call it junk “religion” because there’s absolutely nothing religious at all about raping, maiming, dismembering, beheading, and otherwise murdering other human beings.
“…a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King
The 2014 elections are by far the most important elections to date of this century. Despite governmental reassurances to the contrary, America is tottering over the brink of economic collapse. Vote wrong, and we most certainly will lose. Vote right, and we might be able to haul her back from the edge.
As a registered Independent, I spent all afternoon Sunday reviewing not only the positions, but also the voting records of all 21 positions (42 candidates — half Republican, half Democrat) on my ballot. Given my “preaching” here on Facebook, I wanted to be absolutely certain I was electing the best candidate for each position, and not just “voting party line.”
I based my decisions mostly on their voting records. The criteria was simple: Had they supported and defended the Constitution,
“the supreme Law of the Land,” as per their oaths of office? Or were they perverting our government by actions which undermined our Constitution and the rights and freedoms it recognizes and protects?
It was close in only 5 of the 21 open positions. The other 16 positions were slam-dunks.
In ALL cases, however, the records of the Republican candidates made it clear they stood for our rights and freedoms, while the records of the Democrat candidates made it clear they stood for bigger government at the EXPENSE of our rights and freedoms.
Sunday’s exercise was yet another of countless confirmations that the Democrat Party itself is no longer American, that it has been usurped by a mix of communists, fascists, socialists, muslims, opportunists and just plain idiots, to be used solely for the purpose of pulling the wool over the eyes of mostly lower to middle-class voters in order to remain in power, raise taxes, and siphon off a great deal of our hard-earned tax dollars into their own pockets and those of their friends.
To be fair, some Republicans are doing this, too, but I continually find they’re doing so to a far lesser extent.
Bottom line: I remain an Independent voter, yet cast all my votes towards the Republicans. My decisions were not based on the color of their party, but on the content of their character.
I’ll leave you with one last observation. Five years of digging into what goes on behind the curtains in both parties have lead me to conclude what the Democrats say about the Republicans are largely lies, often made up on the spot, and that the elements in the following graphic are largely true:
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican, not a Democrat, and for many very good reasons which are even more sound today than they were back then.
