    So how do we treat other people?

    How do we treat people who could make a difference in our lives?
    Do we ally with them or alienate them?
    What does the media say we should do?
    Do we believe the media more than the Bible?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It's a frame of mind. Think good thoughts do good things, that is our purpose on this planet.

    Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

    The blame game is 'he's not my President'.

    Wait four years, maybe eight then I'll push for the things I know we need,

    but the other side of equally unpleasant people are thinking the same thing, they won't support any good policies you want, they will demonize them and when your team get in they'll be thinking, just wait until we get back in

    and nobody gets any good thing done.

    Through the psycho-semantics the devil plays both ends against the middle.

    It's like watching two dogs tied to two ends of the same leash expending all their energy choking each other because they want to go two opposite directions.

    Blame? He has gone out of his way to make the point that he is not my President. It's not something I decided.

    Those four years or eight years will happen anyway, you won't make them pass any faster by willing them to. The only thing you can be sure of is you'll be four or eight years older and what you want done you won't have done anything to contribute to getting it done.

    What did I think when Donald Trump got in? His detractors said he is an egotist - name a President who wasn't, I'm pretty sure there were a few, but most had a high opinion of themselves - so I'd let that one pass.

    Except doesn't the desire to be exalted sound a lot like wanting to please people? A lot like wanting to be a popular democratic leader?

    Work with him, not against him.

    If you really think he is a hopeless case, as bad as G W Bush or Ronald Reagan, or Bill Clinton,

    then look for a replacement. How is it the Democratic Party is once again unable to find a good candidate? One is nearly dead and the other has no vision of the future except one that will cost the entire wealth of the country to get it, and nobody seems all that clear about what 'it' actually is.

    Christian politics does not exist until people take priority over power and wealth. Jesus said that the Kingdom is among us. We are to live as if we are in the Kingdom of God. So our politics should give people their God given dignity no matter who they are and we should refuse to take up arms even if we have to give up our lives. War is exploitation of the people for the benifit of the Powers of the wealthy class. Remember whom Jesus criticised it was not the riff raff but the Pharisees a scribes and the wealthy those who were meant to serve the people. So get money out of politics deconstruct lobby groups only the people as individuals should have access to the government. Remember that priests bishops etc. are the servants of the servants of God. Everyone on this earth is a child of God whether you consider them an enemy or not we are to love them and give them hospitality. Why Donald do the devils work unchallenged? Why are churches silent about the political causes of homeless, the poverty, the channelling of the wealth of the people to the satanic hoarders who are taking from God's children.
    Give your tithes to the charities not to the Churches because then you are not just giving to yourselves.
