President Bush, instead of listing the horrific past of Kerry, instead praised him. This leads me to conclude that George Bush was either lying last night or is stupid. Now I know the President is not stupid, you can not be stupid and fly a fighter jet at 900 plus miles an hour, you can not be stupid and land on a Carrier, you can not be stupid and get an MBA from Harvard. So, last night, the President missed an opportunity to truly define and explain Kerry, by choosing to take the politically correct road by lying.
What the President should have said:
My opponent has supported every form of infanticide proposed over the last 20 years.
My opponent has supported every proposition put forward by the radical left wing anti-family homosexual lobby since he first set foot in public office over twenty years ago.
Over the last 20 years, my opponent, the junior Senator from Massachusetts, the most liberal senator in the senate, has never voted pro-life, nor has he ever voted pro-family.
John Kerry, before coming to Washington as a Senator, came as a communist stooge for the Viet. cong. His anti war rhetoric is responsible for many names on the black marble wall on the Mall in Washington, D.C.
While he was before congress lying about fictitious atrocities that never happened, good honest US Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers and Marines were being tortured to death by the North Vietnamese in an effort to get them to admit to the atrocities that Lt.(jg) Kerry lied about.
I am pro-Christ, I am pro-life, I am pro-family, I support our men in uniform 100%.
My opponent, Senator John Kerry is not, I repeat, not an honorable man. He is a traitor and the blood of hundreds of US Service men is on his and his ilks hands through his never ending support of the enemies of this nation!
That is what President Bush should have said, but alas, President Bush missed a chance to demonstrate the same courage he demands of our troops as they fight the terrorists around the world. He had the opportunity to fight one of the worst internal terrorist and he blew it. He had the opportunity to articulate what the true moral differences between him and Kerry are last night and he didn't. And that is, an opportunity lost, and act of cowardice, and a shame.
When Jesus was faced with the same thing He didn't take the cowardly, politically correct way out, He instead looked the enemy in the face and said:
Matthew Chapter Twenty-three ACP/KJV verses 1-33
1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to His disciples, 2 Saying,
The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, 'Rabbi, Rabbi.'
8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass (search throughout) sea and land to make one proselyte (trainee), and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor (bound to do it)! 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty (bound to do it). 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by Him (God) that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by Him that sitteth thereon.
23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye (are) blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess (filth and sin). 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres (caskets), which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity (filth and sin).
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!, because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
President Bush had a missed opportunity last night, I and every other preacher out here understands what happened, for we have all been faced with the same dilemma. There are times when someone has died, a person we know to be unsaved, yet when that person's friends or kin tell us about that persons dying and say "he/she is in a better place now" we don't say "Oh, no he/she isn't, they are in a much worse place." We instead either nod our heads up and down in apparent agreement, a true and direct lie, or we say nothing, which is just as dishonest.
We all like to be liked. And oft times, the truth will make you very unpopular. But, the truth does in fact set you free, free from that gnawing feeling we get in our stomachs from lying. That gnawing feeling that the President has this morning for not telling to truth about Kerry last night.
Pray to the Lord asking Him to give preachers and the President the courage to tell the truth.
Lord help us to be 1/1000th as honest as You are.
May the Lord understand the importance of Mac and Cecily to this ministry. Lord I need them both healthy and able to continue to hold up their ends. Lord this cancer of Mac's is starting to get in the way, this ministry needs him whole, just a thought Lord, is all it will take, just a thought on Your part.
There is a young man, a veteran who suffers from some kind of chemical weapon exposure, in a Veterans hospital in Colorado, he is young, and he is saved, yet his wife just abandoned him. Please pray for him, Lord, help him and deal with her and those who hurt him, we ask this of the Father in Your name Lord Jesus, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, amen.
The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
