Empowering Christians to participate in our political process with knowledge, understanding, and courage.

    CCM017- Den of Vipers

    Today on Conservative Christian Movement, I’ll

    go over what we know so far on the 2020 presidential trail of tears, Democrat

    style.  I’ll talk about what we can learn

    from Frank Stephens, actor, speaker, writer and survivor of Downs Syndrome.  I’ll go over a couple of liberal meltdowns

    from the past week.  Links can be found at

    ccmpodcast.com.  Thanks for joining me.  I am Jeff Stipe, your host.







    Let’s get started.







    The

    verse of the Day:







    Matthew 12:34 (NIV)







    “You

    brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the

    mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”







    You don’t have to watch the news very long

    to see how this verse is so appropriate today. 

    Honestly, even Fox News struggles at times to report “fair and balanced”

    news.  When you look at CNN, MSNBC and

    other networks, the bias is amazing.  We

    have many “Broods” of vipers in our nation and in our world.  Even within the churches. 







    The verse of the day, at least to me and

    my podcast, means what is buried deep within your core will come out of your

    mouth.  Hate for hate, love for love, your

    bias shows.  Gone are the days when you

    would never guess someone’s political belief.  It is put out on display every day, full

    screen which is sad.  News should be rooted

    in fact. 







    Today’s political environment is no

    different.  I talked last week about the

    train wreck of the Democrats sitting on their hands with disdain on their face as

    the president spoke.  It’s really sad to

    see.  The divisiveness is thick and growing

    thicker.







    Den

    of Vipers







    It’s President’s Day in the US.  It’s only fitting to discuss the list of

    those who currently seek the nomination for president on the Democrat ticket

    for 2020.  The list is long, familiar (in

    most cases) and unsurprising.  Already

    the press is picking winners, yet pushing positive news for most of them.  All, of course in the name of ridding our

    country of the 45th president.







    Some are posting on Facebook (nameless of

    course), we celebrate 44 out of 45 presidents for obvious reasons.  This might be true for me but the one left

    out isn’t President Trump.  It’s sad as I

    said, the hatred for one man who beat out 16 others to become #45.  That is some feat, yet defeating him is some

    major goal in most liberals, both in congress and in the public.







    Since the State of the Union address,

    there have been 9 Democrats fully announce or explore the idea of running

    again.  To date, the three missing names

    are perhaps the most expected; Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders (though

    he is an independent).  I did not link to

    the article, but somewhere I saw up to 450 people have considered a run on the Democrat

    ticket in 2020.  I’m not surprised as

    there is a feeling of hope to run in the face of hatred for the president.







    The Hill listed the top 10 Democrats for

    2020: Some have announced, others have not.







    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)







    Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-TX)







    Former Vice President Joe Biden







    Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA)







    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)







    Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH)







    Senator Corey Booker (D-NJ)







    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)







    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg

    CCM 016- Hate of the Union

    CCM 016- Hate of the Union

    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.







    The

    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

    the world.  







    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

    normal occurrence.







    And now, my take on the Democrat

    Progressives reaction to President Trump. 









    Hate

    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

    possible first.

    CCM- 015 Suffer the Children

    Today on the Conservative Christian Movement podcast, I'll  discuss President Trump ordained by God.  I'll talk about the mid-term election, the 116th Congress which is in full and talk about why DC is so blue.  I'll unpack the abortion drama spreading across the nation like wildfire and continue calling out the insanity that is liberalism in America



















    You are listening to CCM Podcast Episode 15, Suffer the Little Ones.  This episode was recorded Feb 1, 2019.







    Thank you all for being here.  I am Jeff your host. .







    Notes for this episode can be found at CCMPodcast.com.  Let's get started…







    The verse of the day:







    Romans 13:1 (NIV) Courtesy of Bible Gateway







    "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God."







    You and I are subject to governing authorities.  There is no question about that.  The gulf between conservative and liberal thought these days is wider than ever.  In Episode 5 (Link below) I talked about the meat grinder called politics.  It's a wonder any Christian would want to serve in such a bitter world.







    President Trump is Ordained by God







    These days Liberals are so far left, blinded by desire to rid this nation of a president, no individual outside their circle can say nothing correctly.  If the president says the sky is blue, they would disagree.  Take what Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an interview with CBN. 







    "I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that He wanted Donald Trump to become president."







    USA Today wasted no time with the rhetoric train, bashing her for such a wild statement.  From our verse of the day, God puts people in places of authority for His purposes, not ours.  We don't always understand why but we have to live with it.  When Obama won his first term, I was saddened.  Then his second win, I might as well have been devastated.  But as I have mentioned before, losses in politics are opportunities to play the game differently.







    Yes, I agree with Sarah's assessment.  President Trump is the one God chose in 2016.  After all, the alternative was worse than Obama (my opinion).  USA Today calls out Christians for running to this verse when it serves a purpose.  I'm using it because for one thing, the Word of God is infallible, it is alive today as yesterday and we gain from it what God wants us to when we read it.  You might get a different message from the word than I do from the same scripture.  It's amazing that way.







    Obama's presidency was an unmitigated disaster for our standing in the world; not exactly a failure in the minds of the left.  President Trump has been willing to un-ring those bells.







    Is the president perfect?  No…  Nor was David who was clearly chosen by God to lead Israel at a young age.  Are we giving him a pass on his transgressions?  Maybe, but he is president and deserves at least a measure of respect for it.  Obama got that much in spite of "knowing" he was flat wrong.







    What we can see here, is no matter what you say, if you say it with a Christian tone, you'll get crucified for it.  But why? Better yet, what can YOU do about it?







    Charisma News actually put some dimensions around all the things (and people) liberals hate.  It's a substantial list but you can't add everything they hate to a list.  It just wouldn't be feasible.  The Constitution, Freedom, Israel,

    CCM 014- Why We Must Fight

    CCM 014- Why We Must Fight

    Conservative Christian Movement Podcast Episode 014- Why We Must Fight!



    You are listening to the Conservative Christian Movement Podcast, episode 14, “Why We Must Fight”. This episode is being recorded August 3rd, 2018. Show notes can be found at CCMPodcast.com.



    Welcome to the show! Today I will wrap up the Rules for Radicals with Rule # 13. I’ll talk through the myriad of news consuming our world today and talk a bit about where this show is headed and I’ll talk a bit about why it’s been so long since I’ve published an episode I’ll give you a glimpse of the emails I receive on a daily basis which confirms why we must fight. I’ll also give you the two questions to ask your elected officials which can determine their fitness for serving in our government. To end the episode, I’ll give more evidence of meltdowns from liberal minded people.



    Without any further delay, let’s get right to it.



    The verse of the Day



    Deuteronomy 20:1 New International Version (NIV)



    Going to War



    When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.



    The title of this episode, “Why We Must Fight” is a bit of a misnomer. I don’t speak of fighting in the physical sense, fist fights and violence. No, I suggest, and have done so in previous emails, we as Christians must be willing to fight the emotional, spiritual and electional (if that’s even a word), battles. We must understand the rules of engagement. And, as we have studied over the past several episodes, use the rules for radicals for the good of our Nation— for Christian Values.



    As we read in Deuteronomy 20:1, God delivers us when we need him to. We must just expect deliverance. We must be empowered in our minds to fight with God on our side. We must not be afraid of those we oppose. Some are Republicans, Most are Democrats, Socialists, Communists, and others. More an more, these groups suggest violence to silence God’s people. The USA will suffer if Christians are unwilling or unable to fight the fight being handed to us.



    Rule number 13 from Saul Alinsky...



    The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    This is the final rule as written by Alinsky. In case you’ve lived under a rock, this one is the easiest of all to detect. You can recognize it based on the number of people pointing to a specific target. Take President Trump for instance. Just in the past week we’ve heard so much about separating immigrant children, here illegally from their illegal alien parents. I won’t pretend to know what is really going on with this story, but one thing is clear. The president is the target, the press freezes him by talking about it non-stop, they attack him personally, claiming he has no heart and has feelings for humans.

    What you must fully understand, the rules for radicals were not based on logic, not based on fighting for the Constitution, or specifically to help we Americans be the light of the world. Not, quite the opposite is true. These were to bring about the liberal agenda. These days that means promotion of abortion, gay marriage, equal (special) rights for LGBTQ and whatever next letter happens to fit the agenda, and open borders.



    The thirteenth rule can be used when a specific person stands in the way of winning on any of thee issues. Now, with Justice Kennedy retiring, the rhetoric (and use of this rule) are ratcheted up. Interestingly as I’ll share later, Liberals know they will not win against the President and his pick of a new Supreme Court Justice. What they will do, is use the situation for fund raising. This will fund candidates in November in hopes of winning back control of both the House of Representatives and the ...

    CCM013- Rise Through Knowledge

    Welcome to the Conservative Christian Movement Podcast.  I am Jeff, your host. This is episode 013; “Rise Through Knowledge”. Today on the Conservative Christian Movement Podcast I’ll give details on  Saul Alinsky’s Twelfth rule for Radicals,   We’ll wrap up the conversation about the Johnson Amendment.  I’ll finish with more examples of liberal melt downs and talk Serenity in Politics, if there is such a thing.  Show Notes for this episode can be found at CCMPodcast.com.   Thank you for the opportunity to teach you.  Remember to Subscribe, Rate and Review the show.  Again, thank you for joining in, lets go!



    The verse of the day:



    Matthew 7:7 New International Version (NIB)



    “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."



    As we move into the US mid-term election cycle, you may notice many television ads, mailers in your mailbox and facebook this and that, all in the name of electing a specific candidate.  It is funny how every candidate is miraculously conservative on the Republican side and Liberal on the Democratic side.  The truth, however, most are less conservative— hence more liberal than they claim.



    There are tools out there to shed light on candidates claims to represent your interests.  For many years now we have all heard “I will fight abortion, protect guns ownership, protect property rights, cut taxes and bring sanity to our fiscal house.”  One candidate after another, whether local, state or federal has claimed on or more of these promises. The fact is abortion remains, gun ownership is at an all-time threat, property rights are dwindling and our fiscal house, well is crumbling.  I wrote a blog post in 2012 about the deficit.  At the time the National Debt was $16 Trillion.  To be clear a $1 Trillion has 9 zeroes behind it, yes 9! Today, the National Debt is $21 Trillion.  Since the US House of Representatives controls the budget, who is to blame?  Yes, Republicans, especially those of Moderate and Liberal bent.  Not one candidate for the House of Representatives stood in front of a camera and stated openly, I will ensure we reach $21 Trillion by 2018.



    Did you ask the question at the time “who should you vote for?”  Did you even vote in any of the elections since 2012?  Stats say about 3 in 4 Christians voted.  Unfortunately, as we have discovered in the last episode, #12 not all Christians are truly conservative.  I believe whole heartedly, a Conservative Christian is compatible with Biblical Principles.  Those who claim Jesus was a Liberal, are simply wrong.  You as an individual should be willing to help with your personal wealth, not ask the government to do it.



    I just recently created a video, seen at facebook.com/ccmpodcast, which shared iVoterGuide.com, a tool to root out those not-so-conservative politicians who would fail to live up to the conservative Christian values they run on.  This video, specifically created by request in Ohio is linked below.  iVoterGuide.com works across America by simply entering your zip code.



    The key is to seek wisdom to sort out the fodder by seeking wisdom.  As Matthew 7:7 states, “seek and you will find."



    The Twelfth Rule for Radicals—



    The Twelfth Rule is: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying “You’re right — we don’t know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us.”



     



    Bill Clinton, back in the day denied allegations of sordid acts with Monica Lewinsky.  He denied it to the end with a finger wagging in the camera.  The denial unraveled as more an more evidence proved the contrary.  You could call the investigation an attack on Clinton himself.  He was impeached not for the ac

    CCM 012- Speak the Truth

    CCM 012- Speak the Truth

    Welcome to the Conservative Christian Movement Podcast episode 012 titled "Speak the Truth". Today on the Conservative Christian Movement Podcast I’ll give details on  Saul Alinsky’s Eleventh rule for Radicals,   We'll continue talking about Johnson Amendment in depth.  I’ll finish with more examples of liberal melt downs.  Show Notes for this episode can be found at CCMPodcast.com.   Thank you for joining in, without any more Introductions, let's get started.



    The verse of the day:



    Proverbs 11:3 Living Bible (TLB)



    A good man is guided by his honesty; the evil man is destroyed by his dishonesty.



     



    In our political system we elect (hopefully) human beings, all of which according to the word are sinful beings.  I am sinful, you are sinful; we ALL are sinful and have fallen short of the glory of God.  That means none of us are particularly worthy of God's grace, though because He loves us, we are set free of our sins.  We are also limited in our capacity to live like Jesus lived.



    Aside from good works, our greatest sign of a moral compass is our honesty.  As we hire our representatives at the local, state and federal levels, more data exists, giving permanent evidence as to how well they have lived up to their word.  In that respect those who fall short can legitimately be fired, while those who have the fortitude to live up to their words and work hard for you, can be blessed with re-election.



    Making the choice to give the job and take it away is a personal task each of us, especially Christians, must take-- and take seriously if we are to every fight back from the brink of destruction for which turning away from God has led us.



    The Eleventh Rule for Radicals—



    The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside;



    The eleventh rule follows closely behind the tenth.  Sustainment of attacks is required.  But what is it that Alinsky means by "Counterside?"  Let's presume for a moment, any attack by an Alinsky follower is made up mostly of half-truths.  The activists publicly state something about company X and continue making the statements over time.  The company can react in one of a few ways.  They could simply ignore it.  They could make a simple statement in defense.  They could react with multiple statements.



    If reacting with multiple statements, by perhaps multiple people, there is a risk of contradictory statements or even a perceived admission of truth to the claim.  Therein lies the counterside.  Now the activist can act shocked at the admission, offer a "told you so" and then ratchet the pressure.  The counterside now is a changing defense which simply proves guilt in the mind of people.



    We see this tactic frequently in hopes of causing an outburst and the hope for increased negative tone on behalf of our president.  I've talked about Russia in prior episodes.  We have a full year of denials on behalf of the administration and a full year of accusations from Democrats and a possible presidential interview with the special counsel, Robert Mueller (which I fully expect to be a gotcha circus).  If I had a phone line direct to the white house, I'd say don't do it…  Fodder WILL follow.



    And now, part 2-- The Johnson Amendment



    We talked last week about Lyndon B. Johnson nearly losing a primary election to a candidate supported by a 501 c (3) organization.  This was the impetus to the change in the tax code.



    As a result, upon winning the election, Johnson saw fit to ensure this doesn't happen again.  What can we learn from this?  If a law is used to beat a liberal, change the law.  Any time we hear the Johnson Amendment in the news, it is reflective of conservatives and yes, Pastors in the pulpit.  You see,
