Jesus Without The Junk: Who Are You Listening To?

By Molly Painter

This ministry does not endorse a political party and does not promote particular candidates who are running in any given race. What we try to do is be objective in giving another view to readers which comes through much prayer and a lot of fasting.
It is shameful for anyone who has the ability to influence the multitudes because of their station in life to abuse that sway by belittling and degrading the person who holds the highest office in this nation.  We may or may not respect all that our elected leader does, but as a matter of character and integrity, we need to respect the office that man holds.  Because of the United States’ struggles, other nations may not revere us like they once did, but the world still watches everything we do and say.
Several weeks ago, a music celebrity called the president, the attorney general and the vice president “criminals.”  He then elaborated by saying, “We need to chop their heads off in November.” Folks at this particular gathering clapped when he finished speaking, though several appeared to have glazed over looks on their faces.  
This celebrity then “went off” on a member of a news crew using phrases that had to be bleeped out.  He was insulted when the secret service questioned him and downplaying his comments by saying he made them in “fear.”  (Some people do not think the rules ever apply to them.)  He then called himself a “perfect human being.”  Did I mention that this man refers to his Christian faith in interviews and attends church regularly?  
With that being said, God’s Word is clear about the fact that we need to submit to governmental authority (Romans 13).  If you really want change (the way you state you do) to come in the upcoming elections so we can save this nation… then fast and pray.  The power of prayer coupled with fasting will tear down the strongholds that are trying to strangle this nation.  Words are empty and sometimes just out of line.…action is what is needed.
