Twelve Reasons Why I Am Voting For Trump, part 1

For the time has come for judgment to begin with God’s household, and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who disobey the gospel of God?
-1 Peter 4:17

If you are a Christian conscientious objector and do not vote, I respect that.  My conscience is directing me to vote, and vote for Trump.  I have twelve reasons why.   Here are reasons 1-3:

1.  Babies  

Abortion is wrong and is legalized murder.  That's my view.  Trump wants to help our country, the people of our country, decide if they don't want abortion.  As you might know, a president can not really make or stop laws.  That is for the people to do, through the legislative process.

In the 1960's, each state was looking at abortion, debating it, and deciding if and when it could be legal.  It has always been the case that mothers or the child that they carry, die some times, during the pregnancy.  But, killing your child, as a form of birth control is wrong.

And life does begin at conception.  Mrs Clinton wants no changes, no reformation of abortion laws, including allowing elective abortions up to the time of birth.  The person who claims the banner of 'women' and 'women's rights' actually hates women, when she radically supports all abortion, everywhere and at every time.

2.  Children and their education

As adults of voting age, I believe we have to judge which candidate is better for children.  All the points below are points that will affect our children's future.  A society who forgets their children is a society that is going under.  Mrs Clinton's slogan and ad 'Our Children Are Watching' is a half-truth lie in that, sure they are watching; but this candidate does not have their interests in her heart.  See point 1.  

We home-school and I wish everybody did, but the majority of kids go to public schools.  Over these past 8 years of Obama, there has been something that they are implementing called 'common core', that the federal government is forcing on schools across the nation.  Educators across the political and faith spectrum have been raising the alarm about and rejecting common core.  Even how common core has been created and implemented has been at the least, dubious, and at worst, illegal.

There is pretty much nothing good about common core, from it's (crazy) math, to it's re-writing of history.  We don't want sociologists writing and forcing curriculum on children, that comes from an 'indoctrinational' mindset that is reminiscent of Nazi Germany.  Look it up and do your own research, if this is the first time you have heard this.  Trump wants to get rid of common core and let states and cities decide on educational standards.

3.  Future Vision

One candidate, Trump, has a clear vision for the future of America and thereby, the future of the world.  Bernie Sanders also had a message for the future that was a bit different, but was also appealing to many Americans.  I have listened to Mrs Clinton this past year and I have not heard a vision.  Do you remember Obama's vision from 8 years ago, that he gave?  'Hope and Change'.

Where is the hope and change that he promised?  I think American has less hope and things have only changed in a bad way.  A segment of the population does have cheaper health insurance.  Many people agreed that the system was dysfunctional, but we disagreed with how Obama wanted to fix it; and the argument could be made that he made it worse.

Four years ago, do you remember what the competing visions were?  Romney highlighted what was wrong and messed up and how he wanted to fix it.  Obama said Romney is bad.  That was Obama's vision for the 2012 cycle.  Obama's foreign and domestic policies in his first term were disasters.  His worst disasters were in Libya, Syria, and Iran; and guess who was his partner in all those bad decisions?  On the domestic front, one word describes Obama's failure: jobs

Trump's vision for the future in two words: security and jobs.  Hillary's vision: Trump is bad.  Yes, he has said she is bad too, but he has a way forward, a vision for the future.  What is her's, besides, "I'm not him"?

The Two Disciples and The Two Donkeys

When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus gave two disciples a task.  He said to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter, you will find a donkey tied up and a colt with it. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anybody says anything to you, say that the Lord needs it.” He sent them off right away.  Now this happened to fulfill what the prophet said,  Say to Daughter Zion, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble and riding on a donkey, and on a colt the donkey’s offspring.”  The disciples went and did just as Jesus had ordered them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and laid their clothes on them. Then he sat on them.
-Matthew 21:1-7

On what we call Palm Sunday, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. But, he had two disciples get two donkeys: a mother donkey and her colt. Jesus rode the young male who had never been ridden before. In his carefulness and perhaps kindness towards these two donkeys, he had th…

Teaching vs. Indoctrination

As usual, Paul went to the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures.
-Acts 17:2

There is a difference between teaching and indoctrination.  Education is not indoctrination.  But some secular and christian education is indoctrination masquerading as education.

If you are a teacher, whether you homeschool your children, teach at the pro level or you teach in your church; it is good to know this difference between indoctrination and true teaching.  Many people are indoctrinated today, rather than taught.

What you might notice, is that when you preach, whether you preach to a crowd or a few, it is easy to be an indoctrinator rather than a true teacher.  True teachers ask people questions and expect them to challenge and debate them.

God's Secret, Hidden People

(The children) of Elam 1,254.  -Ezra 2:7

Do you feel hidden?

The name Elam means secret or hidden.  Do you feel like you are on the shelf, not being used by God?  Maybe you are part of God's secret agents.

God has people who are in secret.

I have this idea that God has His attention on secret people.   I believe that God has rewards for secret people coming.  You may feel on the shelf, but you are actually hidden for a special purpose.  God has you in reserve.

The number one thousand, two-hundred, and fifty-four; tells us God's plan for his hidden, secret, and in reserve children

One thousand speaks of recompense.

Recompense means that you will be compensated or made amends to, due to harm or loss you suffered. In Genesis 20:16 is the story of Abimelech recompensing Abraham and Sarah.

Two speaks of fellowship, partnership, and co-laboring (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

There are hidden people who have felt like they are "going it alone", who are about to be joined by someone.  …
