Today on the Conservative Christian
Movement, I’m making a change versus
what I planned from my last Episode.
Instead of the planned topics, I am choosing to summarize the State of the Union speech from February 5. I’ll do so in a way most other commentators are
not; by building the Democrat party
platform for 2020 based on their reaction
to the president’s comments in the State of the Union. I’ll get back to business as usual next
week… Welcome back to the Conservative
Christian Movement Podcast. This episode
was recorded February 8, 2019. I am Jeff
Stipe, your host.
Let’s get started.
verse of the Day:
Proverbs 29:2 (NIV)
“When the righteous thrive, the people
rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.”
This is perhaps the most applicable verse when considering Christian participation in politics. The founding fathers preferred righteous leadership over wicked rule, which was so prevalent
in their struggle for independence. I
talked at length about this in episode 2 (A Journey to a New World).
Our nation struggles today with a shifting
away from simple Biblical principles which were woven into our Constitution
willfully by framers who believed not only in the infallible Word of God, but
the positive influence in both our individual walk and our nations standing in
Slowly, over time, Liberals have loaded
the courts to speed the separation of Church from the state, something never
intended before. In each of the Seven
Mountains mentioned in episode 1 (Change the world). These are Religion, Family,
Education, Government, Media, Arts &
Entertainment and Business. Liberals (of
which Republicans are often a part), amplify
sin to normalize it and desensitize
you to it though these 7 mountains.
The ultimate goal is to minimize YOUR
impact as a Christian for the good, while making sin an acceptable and expected
And now, my take on the Democrat
Progressives reaction to President Trump.
of the Union
This week, President Trump gave his State
of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. As is usually the case, he made statements,
some cheered, others jeered. I’ve heard
many critiques of the speech and of the Democrat reaction to those
statements. To which I thought, their
reaction signifies their beliefs and ultimately their party platform.
I will preface this statement by stating
openly, the Democrat party HATES President Trump. They hated from the start, the plan he put
out as a candidate and the steps he has taken to “Drain the Swamp” in DC. But I digress…
The president put forth his message in
hopes of unifying the un-unifiable. Hi
message spanned the gamut of “Can’t we all just get along” to wow, our nation
is in great shape. There was little
patting himself on the back. Honestly
the year has been a pretty good year for our country and is set to continue for
the near future.
It wasn’t all bad. I’ll start with the glimmer of hope which has
already faded out to nothingness.
It seems we can all get along with
Birthdays, women in the workplace and economic development for women in foreign
countries. We saw the house chamber
erupt into Happy Birthday (a first ever) and a unified “U-S-A” chant another
