“Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of The United States Again”

According to Frank Amedia, appearing on Jim Bakkers show in America. God has given him permission to say that “Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of The United States Again”.

Does this suggest that the fight for the next US election has already began? If so, is the tactic to say something along the lines of “God wants Trump to be president”, enough times that people accept it as truth?

Peace On Earth

If you give it a quick glance, this looks like a normal nativity scene. Except on the wall behind sits details of mass shootings in America, and the amount of people that died in those Mass Shootings.

rt.com reports:

The priest at St. Susanna, Father Stephen Josoma, told Boston 25 News that the move is aimed at getting people talking and stopping gun violence. “There’s cities, nursing homes, coffee shops, military installations, churches, theaters,” he said, noting the locations of mass shootings that have taken place across the country.

Josoma said the idea came after he and his parishioners were “discussing the gun control issue and how it seems to be stagnated across the country.” He went on to state that “this is not the picture of Christmas peace we want to have in people’s minds for years to come. It can’t be this forever, it just has to change.”

The signs sit underneath a banner which reads: “If you only knew the things that make peace.” The priest said he hopes they will encourage people to “look with an open mind and an open heart and continue the conversation.”

The signs have proven controversial online, with one person taking to social media to say that “mass shooters don’t deserve that kind of recognition. Church is for holy people. We should discard these monsters in active volcanos.”

Sofa feels that at a time when churches around the world sing about Peace on Earth, its good to see a church tackling how unpeaceful events have arguably become normalised.

“Blessed are the peacemakers”, and all that I guess..?

 

Trump or Jesus? The Sequel

August last year, I published a little post called Trump or Jesus? Which basically challenged people to try and tell the different between Donald Trump, and Jesus Christ.

With that in mind, I present the below…

Yes. He does say, “If Jesus Christ gets down of the cross and told me Trump was with Russia, I would tell him, hold on a second I need to check with the President if its true”.

At one point are we allowed to use words like “Cult of Trump”?

The Next American Civil War?

According to Televangelist Jim Bakker, any moves to impeach Donald Trump would lead to civil war in America.

“If it happens, there will be a civil war in the United States of America. The Christians will finally come out of the shadows because we are going to be shut up permanently if we’re not careful.”

How would a Christian led civil war work?

When Church Choirs Sing For America?

A number of Southern Baptist church choirs sang a song entitled “Make America Great Again”  at a Donald Trump rally on Saturday, which appears to have been hosted by  the First Baptist Dallas Church

“Make America Great Again,” was Trump’s campaign motto when he was campaigning to become President.

Personally I always thought that America was kinda great, except I’m now struggling with America needing a song about being great… AGAIN.

Can anyone explain why this song is a thing for me please?

(Update) This is now a CCLI Licensed Christian Worship Song, therefore this is part of the database of worship songs that people sing in Churches.

Does this mean that there are churches now singing “us more then other churches  please Lord?” Isn’t the Church meant to be one family, not separated by different countries / languages etc?

UCB Radio here in the UK are asking how political churches should be, shouldn’t political opinions should begin with themes such as, the homeless, the hungry, and looking after the fatherless and the widow. But some would just call me a left leaning liberal, so what do I know?

Donald Trump – “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”?

Donald-Trump-We're going to start saying Merry Christmas again.

Donald J. Trump addressing supporters at a 4th July event, where it seems that he got a big cheer when he said “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”

Question.
At what point did America stop saying Merry Christmas, and what does America say instead?

More Ways to Show Love and Acceptance.

So, lets face it. 2016 is an interesting year. With arguably negative political campaigns held on either side of the Atlantic, leading to negativity spilling out of the newspapers and impacting people in a real way. It feels like the world is leaving 2016 in a far more negative place then when it entered it.

I’m not going to write a full discourse looking at why this may be the case, instead I’m going to look at a few ideas of what could be done to improve matters. (There’s no way of phrasing the next sentence without being cheesy) How can we spread more love in 2016?

Because volunteers are awesome, and there’s probably something out there you’d like doing. (I personally know of opportunities to cook, and build lego.*) If nothing else, doing something good might help to improve your CV.
