Dear Mr. President: Mocking Christine Blasey Ford isn’t helping your cause

Published

on

A campaign rally may be the place to gather support and get wild cheers from the base, but President Trump needs to stop using it as a venue to discuss Christine Blasey Ford. When he does, his showmanship takes over and the result is a mockery.

It may be good fodder for his fervent fans, but it makes it harder for Senators to get the votes they need to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. Moreover, it taints those who end up voting for him, making it harder for them to win their elections during these extremely important midterm elections.

People don’t vote for Supreme Court justices. The President does not need to paint Kavanaugh’s accuser in a negative light at campaign rallies because it cannot have a positive effect on the outcome. Somebody needs to tell him he’s hurting his cause.

Many on Capitol Hill and in leftist mainstream media have gone after his comments, but the most glaring rebuke came from someone who has been in the President’s corner since before he won the GOP nomination.

‘Fox & Friends’ host criticizes Trump for mocking Kavanaugh accuser

https://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/409619-fox-friends-host-rips-trump-for-mocking-kavanaugh-accuser“The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides. Last night he chose to blow it,” Kilmeade said on “Fox & Friends,” adding that the FBI could be concluding its investigation into Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday.

“I wonder about the wisdom, as much as the crowd loved it, I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that.”

Kilmeade said that there were clear holes in Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, but cautioned the president against going after her publicly.

The President has a right to be skeptical of Ford and her testimony. It’s all starting to seem more and more like the political hit job Kavanaugh described than an actual victim seeking justice. However, being skeptical and handling it in a professional manner is very different from outright mockery of such a delicate subject.

All he has to do is allow the process, as convoluted as it has been, to complete its course. By attacking the alleged victim during a campaign rally, he made Republicans’ jobs that much harder and gave fuel to Democrats for their midterm election campaigns.

Ford’s accusations are seeming less and less credible, which is why the President needs to let the focus be on them and not on his mocking of her. There are times when he doesn’t have to be the center of attention. This is one of them.

    While Trump’s comedy act last night in Mississippi was funny, and he had Christine Ford pegged perfectly, he made a mistake in joking about her credibility, especially since just last Friday he was saying that she was credible and courageous. Trump did not help Kavanaugh and should have kept his mouth shut, something he is incapable of doing.

Strait is the gate and narrow is the way: Churches, stop pushing a ‘wide gate’ doctrine

Strait is the gate and narrow is the way Churches stop pushing a wide gate doctrine

The lukewarm nature of the modern church is easy to see when we look the way they handle faith and salvation. Churches seem to be very against the concept of the strait gate and narrow way as described by Yeshua. This should change.

Even if your church won’t change, you personally have the license to do so.

Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV)

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Rather than go into details in this article, I’ll leave it to this video I made a while back.

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died?

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died

History doesn’t tell us exactly when Yeshua was born. Luke tells us that He was about 30 years old when He began His ministry and we know it lasted approximately three and a half years.

And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, – Luke 3:23 (KJV)

We know that King David died in 970 AD. The math might start sounding pretty cool at this point, but I’ll elaborate.

Scholars put Yeshua’s birth to likely fall in the 6-4 BC range. Experts place the range of His death (and resurrection) between 30-33 AD as a result of the data that they’ve worked out.

If He did die in 30 AD, that would mean that he died exactly 1000 years after his human ancestor King David.

Some will point out that the calendars were changed, going from 364 to 360 up to 365 at different points within this time range across the various regions, but using the accepted calendars, we can claim that it’s possible for it to be a 1000 year gap. Knowing the amazing order and precision with which our Father has established His creation, it wouldn’t shock me to find out some day that it was precisely 1000 years all the way down to the second.

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth (and Nephilim were really giants)

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth and Nephilim were really giants

There are two camps of hermeneutics about how to reconcile the strange verses in the beginning of Genesis 6. We would like to demonstrate that the popular one is distinctly wrong and that the less popular one often takes Bible scholars down the wrong path.

It’s easy to see why the early church was very averse to the proper interpretation. They didn’t want to scare those new to the faith off with strange discussions of evil angels coming down to earth to take wives of human women, so they came up with an alternative to the obvious interpretation to better fit their sensibilities.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:1-2 (KJV)

The common interpretation is that the “sons of God” were the sons of Seth and that the “daughters of men” were the daughters of Cain. The phrase for “sons of God” in this verse, Bene Ha’elohim, is used many times in the Bible and always refers to divine creatures created by God. These were angels. That’s all there is to it.

For easy proof of this, we simply need to apply logic to a verse that follows.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:4 (KJV)

Sons of Seth that married daughters of Cain would not be able to yield giants (or as they’re called in other translations, Nephilim). Many of the earliest translations try to distort the words to fit their hermeneutics by saying that these weren’t really giants but were just really heroic but evil men. The 1599 Geneva Bible footnote says that “giants” could be interpreted as “tyrants.” This is false.

We go into much more depth on this topic and why many of the modern Bible scholars who are properly translating these verses tend to distort the truth in a dangerous way in our video.
