    The Christian right has their man in office. Yet you see the grief he is given. And the masses are against him and those who voted for him, and are prevailing. Because the masses are the leftist liberals, and anti-Christian.

    To the believer, I say, buy a gun now. While you can. The next president is probably going to be a liberal leftist. Then it will be too late. Now is the time to prepare.

    If you don't need that gun, praise God. But if you do need it and don't have it, shame on you and grief to those dependent on you.

    my two cents.

    I am still confused how someone like Trump became the Christian Rights go to man. He is a man of opportunity and the way to get to where he was was to change views he has held for most of his life to appeal to the certain groups.

    It is not just the Christian right that voted for Trump. Many conservatives and some democrats also who were just fed up with the whole lying political system voted for him. In the end you only have two people to vote for. His voice was the voice of anger and disgust as to where the country was going.

    Christians vote, hopefully, every election. The one they vote for is not their 'go to man'. But they try and vote for the one that best represents their views as Christians.

    The greatest proof that he, as opposed to Hillary, represented those views, is the extreme opposition he faces daily.

    That is shocking, since I voted for neither of them and still managed to vote for a President.

    Well, your free not to have to vote. That doesn't mean you avoid the consequences. Christians can bury their head in the sand all they want and say I as a Christian won't vote because God is going to take care of it. Then happily live with what you have as being from God.

    Leftist liberals, aiy? There are people from both the left and right wing that are saved born again Christians, not all of the left are bad, and not all the right are good, there has been extremes of right wing Christians simply calling the Left wing all sorts of things and singling out Muslims like they did to the blacks, they had forgotten that Muslims can be saved too, and it was not really a good display of the love, not every left winger is of the devil and not every left winger is carnal, we gotta remember the left wing is compassionate, they accept people with open arms, they help the broken and many get led to Christ because of it, not all the left wing has twisted the gospel. There's also the extreme of left wing, which you are all aware of, but neither the right extreme or left extreme is good, a bird cannot fly with one wing. If you read about the life of Jesus, you will find he was more left wing than what some Christians might think him to be, after all what kind of people did Jesus feel compassion for, didn't he eat with the sinners? He cares for the broken people. A lot of scripture the far right uses is old testament and extreme right wing-ism could be compared to the Pharisees and the Ku Klux Klan. But we are under the covenant of grace.

    And we don't need no gun, if we got the good Lord. But I hope & pray the best for Trump, because that's what we are meant to do as Christians, no matter what leader you get, if you get a leftist liberal next, pray for him or her, if you a get right winger as President, pray for him or her, instead of attacking them. ;)

    yikes, Stranger. I mean, i knew you had it bad, but not this bad. What scares me most is that there are surely a lot of other people who imagine they are Christians too who feel the same way. Does your country need an enema or what :lol

    It's stuff like this that makes me fear for our country. We had a "liberal leftist" for the last eight years. Gun sales were at a peak because "Obammy's gonna take our guns, hurr durr." 2nd Amendment's still very much in the Bill of Rights, and likely always will be despite anti-gun rhetoric from the left because repealing an amendment is a lot harder than it sounds, especially one of the original ones.

    Relax there, Wyatt Earp. Nobody's going to take your guns.

    I know you didn't ask me but I own two firearms. I own them for personal protection from other U.S. Citizens and for fun. Not because I think Biden or Clinton is going to come get them in 2020.

    If you have only seen the show, it all would be confusing. But it was just a show. Trump is a nice, respectful, and decent guy. Those who meet him all agree. I met him some years ago and talked with him for 10-20 minutes, and I concur.

    We need to remember that he went up against generations of corrupt political establishment and a corrupt media...and he won, because he got ugly where ugly was called for, and still managed to get the message out to enough real people about the truth of what he really is like...and by the will of God. The battle is not over yet.

    Yes God can do all things. Strange how he uses man to accomplish His will.

    Matthew 10
    28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.


    Sounds like good advice.
