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?
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?

Try “Hillary Clinton, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States: Is Hillary Clinton Fulfilling Biblical, Islamic, Catholic, Buddhist, and other America-Related Prophecies?”
Ask yourself. Do they need a longer title for the book?

It seems that Bible verses can be spotted in many places. Cards, “inspirational” posters, Bibles, and now… a rifle.
Whilst I’m sure that being an English guy living in England, means I’m going to struggle to understand why online gun shopping is a thing, let alone why there would be a Bible verse “laser engraved” onto it, I do wonder…
Why is this a thing?
It seems this gun also comes with (what looks like) a badge with a cross, and text saying “If God Wills It”.
Here’s some of the rt.com article on this…
A Florida gun maker has launched an ‘ISIS-proof’ assault rifle, complete with a Bible verse and a symbol of the crusades. The firearm boasts three settings – ‘peace,’ ‘war’ and ‘God wills it’ – and has been condemned by Muslim groups.
The ‘Crusader Rifle’ was “designed to never be used by Muslim terrorists,” and is inscribed with Psalms 144:1: “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”
Made by Spike’s Tactical in Apopka, Florida, the gun is also inscribed with a Knight’s Templar Long Cross – a Christian crusader symbol.
“Off the cuff I said I’d like to have a gun that if a Muslim terrorist picked it up a bolt of lightning would hit and knock him dead,” Thomas said.
The firearm – which costs $1,395 – appears to be a popular choice. According to Spike Tactical’s website, the ‘Crusader Rifle’ is taking up to two weeks to ship “due to overwhelming media response.”
The gun is also being proudly sold at Florida Gun Supply, a store that recently came under fire for declaring the premises a “Muslim free zone.”
“It’s not because we want to have war. It’s because our desire is the same desire as everybody else – we want peace. But unfortunately, if we want peace, we have to prepare for war,” Florida Gun Supply owner Andy Hallinan told RT’s Ruptly agency.

I still haven’t worked out, why this is a thing yet..
Maybe I’ve simply missed this, I knew that Independence Day was a big deal in America (the movie kinda gives that away), but I didn’t realise there were Independence Day celebrations held in Churches.
The Independence Day Church Service was covered in an interesting blog from Benjamin L Corey over at patheos.com :
If your church is going to be holding an Independence Day celebration this year, I hope you’ll think this through and decide to skip it. Celebrating Independence Day at church is among what I believe to be the most offensive things we could do in a place that is supposed to be reserved for worshiping the God we see fully revealed in the person of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the one who taught his disciples to pay their taxes, and nonviolently love their enemies– even to be willing to lay down their lives to love their enemies.
Strong words, but at the very least it seems that Independence Day services can be an excuse for…
FIREWORKS IN CHURCH!!!
