Kansas City Sunday Night Contemplation: Does Jesus Love Prez Trump???



For those who already have forgotten, we started this week with discussing news of a Kansas City church praying "truth" amid an impeachment iniquity.

One week later and like it or not . . .

Revelation: The impeachment threat over Prez Trump Ukraine phone chat hot talk seems to be just another nothing-burger.

Still, images of campy movie doctored video of a MSM church slaughter by the fake-tough-guy fanboys of the Prez make great news fodder and remind us all that silly MAGA dad joke memes are nothing more than preaching to the choir and playing the same identity politics card that is often used to target progressives.

Nevertheless and because this country wasn't just founded on slavery and near genocide of the Native Americans but also THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE.

We offer this gathering of news & views from "many sides" on the topic of faith & Prez Trump.

Politico: ‘Render to God and Trump’ - Ralph Reed calls for 2020 obedience to Trump

LA Times: Trump Is Anti-Abortion. That Alone Explains Why Christians Favor Him.

Reuters: At evangelical conference, concerns about Syria but cheers for Trump

NPR: Generational Split Among Evangelicals Threatens Support For Trump

Guardian: 'A threat to democracy': William Barr's speech on religious freedom alarms liberal Catholics

Patheos: Donald Trump’s Catholic lawyer

AP: Religious right sticks by Trump as political heat rises

We're curious if any of our bloggy denizens can reconcile their faith with the nasty biz of politics and/or how a true believer in ANYTHING overcomes their inevitable moments of doubt.

In the meantime, thank you for reading this week and hopefully we'll have more for the morning of update.

Jesus loves everyone. Even Trump who is not Christian.

Trump is against abortion? Hmmmm. Wonder why he asked Marla to have one when she was pregnant with Tiffany.

Anonymous said...

We know of four he has paid for - but "Evangelicals" will still support him, after all, he's never PERSONNALY had an abortion.

Speaking of impeachment, did you all know that the dummocrooks have had three votes to impeach the President already and they failed miserably. One each in 17,18 and the latest was July 17 2019. It was shot down 332-95. There’s a wiki page devoted to this by the way. That’s why peelousy won’t take up a vote again, she can’t get enough votes for impeachment because even her own people know this is all bullshit. Funny how the media nevar reported any of these attempts.

God bless our wonderful President!

And we are now up to 124 murders, two more gunned down in the northeast area this evening.

Only total assholes like Byron gobbled up the impeachment crap.

Byron had Trump even headed to jail. Only person who needs to be back in jail is Byron himself.

9:47, your comment sounds like someone who considers The Enquirer as a news source.

Seems Jesus and Trump hung out with prostitutes. However, Trump raw-dogged 'em while his 3rd wife was home with their newborn. Does that count?

Jesus doesnt love everyone. He physically attacked people in the church treasury, called church leaders "sons are the devil". He also told plenty of people they were going to hell. He told his followers to "buy swords", google it and read that. One of his followers drew a sword and hacked off the ear of a soldier. He hates the proud and said those doing iniquity will go to hell. Does having sex with a porn star qualify as iniquity? God created hell for people, and jesus taught most people will go down the broad road to hell.

When Jesus died on the cross, that sacrificial act paid for the sins and saved his followers, BUT it also cursed to hell forever people that didnt follow him, respect him or believe him. Maybe you think he loves the people that are going to hell? Really??

greg said...

Luke 22:36. Jesus said "sell your cloak and buy swords". Look up the verse yourself. So Jesus loves everyone like Santa Claus??? You greatly underestimate God's wrath and discust for the human race. If your not for him, he is your enemy.

God Is Love, Jesus Saves KC said...

John 15:12: “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you."

Jesus Christ said...

Church night on the blog it appears - wtf?

greg said...

"Love each other" is a command to christian follwers. Doesnt apply to non-christians. All who go to heaven and hell are both sinners. The difference is how they respond to scripture, if they believe scripture is the word of God, if they believe God is the judge, but he saves repentant sinners, if they repent, if they believe, then they will be changed and saved from Hell. Otherwise God will kill them as he did when he sent a flood to kill all on earth but 8 people. Jesus is a judge, he will judge each person reading this someday. He will decide if you go to hell. Thats in the bible. Think John Wick killed alot of people? God decided to kill each person thats ever been born as a curse for their sin nature. You would have rebelled sgainst god like adam and eve. So your going to die.

According to the current Trend in KC churches, He would have to sport the LGBT flag to be loved. Paint the doors with red and white instead of rainbow and see how quickly people cry.

^^^Oh, come on. He hung around with twelve guys all the time. Do you think they went bowling?

Christ yes. Christianity no.

Why do people not ask if Jesus loves Clinton, Obama, Warren, Biden or any of the Democrats who denied him like Judas at the 2016 Democrat convention?

Fake Byron was in the coffee shop in Raytown about an hour ago. Now he is posting here. What a coincidence.

Well, if my nutty aunt on FB is to be believed and the portrait she posted is accurate.....Jesus is guiding Trump daily.

The TKC pro-Trump posters are like my nutty aunt.

Thank god trump was elected the fact that he was shows a higher power was looking after us. Can you imagine how bad it would be if that Marxist leftist thief was elected instead of trump? The criminal democrats could have destroyed our country by now. They have to all be voted out next time around to lessen the threat to our families and country otherwise we’re in trouble and I believe the only way we can fix it if nothing changes is to do to them what they did to mark rich, Vince foster and countless others.

Must have been a shared dream then, because the vast majority of us think @10:00 was correct.

Plenty of examples in the bible where God destroys people, tribes, counties that he hates. Don't be fooled into thinking God lacks deadly wrath. He hates the evil, the proud, the adulterers, the liars, the thiefs, the people that slander others with false accusations. People think that because God wont strike them dead the minute they do something wrong - that God wont do anything. Wrong! You pay for everything in the end (unless he has forgiven you). Trump does not appear to be a Christian, but only God knows for sure

going out on a limb here and saying Trump is not a Christian.

......Hey 9:34....So if 'jesus/god' loves everyone......
why does your god 'bless' innocent babies with birth defects?
......miscarriages and the like?
Just another way to show 'his' love........right?
What kind of god gives a baby a birth defect?
Let's hear your answer..........
...waiting.

Anonymous said...

Why does God all babies to have birth defects? There is one in my family. I understand that God wanted everyone to be perfect and healthy forever. But mankind rebelled against God, "to be like God", or take his place (like Satan tried to do) So then God brought death on all mankind as a punishment. So birth defects and other illnesses are part of the curse God placed on man. "The wages of sin is death". God doesn't love everyone. That's a lie. How many people has God killed? Every person that's ever died, that how many.

God is wrath not love. Read the book of Revelations in the Bible. In the future God will kill 1/3 of all trees and grass, poison all oceans, poison all freshwater streams, kill 1/3 of all fish, send 100lb hailstones down on the whole earth, let locusts with stingers hunt down humans BUT prevent any humans from dying -they will suffer and not be able to die even though they try to. Then release demons from hell on the earth, then send stars crashing into earth to ruin it. The sun and moon will disappear. Starvation will happen worldwide and finally the earth will melt and be completely destroyed. Where do you get the idea God loves everyone? He only loves his "own". The rest are killed. You need to read a Bible and not listen to some megachurch preacher on TV saying how you can get rich cause God wants you to be prosperous and happy.

John ingested some bad LSD on Patmos. Revelations is the result.

Actually it was God who wrote the bible, using men as his tool. Someday there will be no earth. it will be gone, burned up, that includes your grave

Hey 3:19......"Why does god all babies........what's the matter christian.....god put too much shit between your ears? Can't figure out how to compose a simple sentence ?
I believe you're right about one bir. def. in your family......I'm talking to it right now, seems to be you. I'm sorry for your rel. that god decided to "bless'........swallow it whole brother......your god is a murderer of babies inside their mothers as you know. Maybe if you pray enough god will stop
with his 'jokes' on us.....NAW.........
We'll stop them with science and rational thinking....that's what will put an
end to trump-ass-lickers like you, and Pence, and Paula White, and Pompuss-paio. Hate to keep kicking your ass......but it's the only thing
you understand.
Remember........T. I. N. G.
.....you're welcome!

I meant "why does God allow babies to have birth defects". One small typo and you criticize and go overboard. And claim I am my families own birth defect. Well let me inform you....God does as he pleases - he shows blessings, kindness, grace and providence to those that follow and respect him - and punishes those who mock him. So maybe God brings birth defects into a family like yours because you are God's disrespector. And God can do as he pleases - so he gave birth defects to your child. He can do as he pleases. or maybe its YOUR bad genetics, maybe you had incest in you family years ago and that sin has caused it. I cant say for sure. But God blesses his own. And punishes those that are not his own. A birth defect is NOTHING compared to eternal hell (no food, no drink, no beer, no friends, no sex, no music, no possessions forever). Hell is being far away from good. get your life in order as your on the wrong path. Don't argue with God as he can do as he pleases. What he says in right is right -cause he is God and he can create and uncreate too.

Dude, if your unhappy with life and the babies, you can complain to the almighty now in a prayer and ask why, or wait till your in front of the judgement throne. It might be a bit late when your in front of the judgement throne. At least the bad babies today were not born 30000 years earlier with no medical care, no painkillers, no heat and no a/c. At least today they live in the modern era. Shit, antibotics were just developed in the 1920's dude. Today is a great era to live

God told mankind not to sin. God said if you do "A" then "B" will happen and you will not like it. And we don't like it. What is "A"? Mankind tried to become and replace his own creator. Which is an impossibility anyway. But eve said "we will become like God". Maybe it wasn't an apple. But the intent was to replace and do away with our creator. So illness and birth defects abound!
