PRAY FOR AMERICA! URGENT AND EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! An Open Letter to My Christian Brothers and Sisters:
For my Christian Brothers and Sisters who are either considering voting for Hillary Clinton; considering simply not voting; or who are considering voting for one of the other ‘Protest Candidates’, I would ask you to sit down and read what God has already said to us about your coming decisions. I believe we all can agree that this election is not like any other in recent history. Unfortunately, it would take very little for this election to be the very last one in which Americans might actually be able to vote in the future. What I am asking you to do is to stop and think about the decisions you are making and whether that action is truly what the Lord has instructed us to do. I will submit to you that ANY vote which is cast, or not as the case may be, due to emotion or due to simply not liking a candidate is a vote that very, very probably is a vote AGAINST God’s word. Let’s take a look and see if that probability is justified.
Very few people in America are excited about the choices we have in this election – and I’m one of them. However, we have moved way beyond the personal opinions of what we think about a given candidate – and that goes for any of them. In this election, every single American will take a stand on the word of God by how he or she votes – and that’s just a plain, simple fact. God has already spoken has to ‘how’ we should choose our leaders. Whether you and I follow what he has said will determine whether America continues to exist as a Christian nation; and how you will answer to Him when the time comes.
Let’s keep this as simple as possible; because frankly – it is very simple if you look at the facts. First of all, to those of you who are considering voting for one of the two ‘Protest Candidates’, ie, Gary Johnson or Jill Stein. A vote for either one of these candidates is a wasted vote; you know that and so do I. Neither of these two candidates has ANY chance of winning. Most of you are considering voting for one of these two people as a ‘protest’, as an option of not voting, or just to make you feel better. It will accomplish nothing to help America that desperately needs your help right now. The simple truth is that one of the other two candidates, either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump WILL be our next President – unless Barack Obama pulls a ‘fast one’ on us, which is possible. But for now, let’s consider the question of where these two candidates stand in relation to how a Christian should be voting.
Let’s start with Hillary Clinton. There are many issues that have come up during this campaign that you and I as Christians should be VERY concerned about, starting with:
1. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
Hillary Clinton has made it very clear as to how she feels about you and I as a Christian and she has no hesitation at all telling you precisely what she intends to do about it. In April of 2015, before a meeting of ‘Women in the World’, she made it very clear of what her agenda for Christians would be; and here is the headline:
Hillary Clinton: Force Christians to Change Their Religious Views to Support Abortion
“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion. “Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” Quote by Hillary Clinton
So much for Religious Freedom.
Hillary Clinton’s most passionate agenda is abortion, period. She has repeatedly refused to answer questions as to whether, as President, she would support ANY limits at all on late-term abortions. While there was a time several years ago in which Clinton suggested she would ‘consider’ some restrictions on late term abortions – while running for President, she has steadfastly refused to discuss ANY restrictions on abortion.
Folks, as a Christian, the word of the Lord is very clear about this subject and with Hillary Clinton as President, abortion WILL become the law of the land. I hope that you have considered what marking a ballot for someone who will implement the killing of millions of unborn children will say to our Lord after He has been so perfectly clear on this subject:
Proverbs 6:16-17: “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.”
Deuteronomy 27:25: “Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.”
Deuteronomy 19:10: “That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.”
The time for us as Christians to take a stand against those who will do all in their power to go against the words of our Lord is way past due. Throwing your vote away on a protest candidate or staying home because you don’t like the choices won’t get it done. You and I have a responsibility to our Lord Jesus – and no excuse will be good enough if we fail to deliver on that responsibility.
3. The Supreme Court
America’s new President will immediately appoint a new Supreme Court Justice. If that President is Hillary Clinton, her first nominee will throw the Court into a far left majority. Names on her ‘short list’ of possibilities, so far, include the names of Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch.
The first case Clinton would push will be to further legalize the killing of the unborn, once again, Hillary’s greatest passion. Hillary rabidly defends abortion as a matter of “rights” for women. Every single passage in the Bible dealing with this subject points us in the opposite direction. God is VERY clear that life in the womb is very precious to Him and the shedding of those innocents makes Him furious! ANY vote for Hillary Clinton is a direct voice against the words of our Lord.
4. Further Warnings About the Supreme Court Under a Clinton Presidency
Over the course of the next four years, the new President will very likely be presented with other ‘replacement’ Justices. On age alone, consider the following:
Justice Ruth Joan Bader Ginsburg is 82. Liberal judge.
Justice Anthony McLeod Kennedy is 79. Swing vote of the Court.
Justice Stephen Gerald Breyer is 77. Liberal judge.
The current political leanings of the US Supreme Court stand at three conservative Justices, four liberal Justices and one Justice that may vote either way. The replacement for Justice Scalia, a staunch Conservative, under a Clinton presidency will be a liberal as would any other Clinton appointment. Under a Clinton presidency, the voice of the Court could easily wind up being six liberals and three conservatives; a devastation to not only the country and the Constitution, but also to Christians as the court would move decisively left and AGAINST the teachings of the Bible. Make no mistake, a Hillary Clinton court would move immediately to her stated bias against Christians and our way of life.
5. Clinton’s Marxist Base
Hillary Clinton’s entire political life has been greatly influenced by Marxist Saul Alinsky. The Alinsky teachings can be found in her statements, in her actions and in her stated goals. Clinton’s college senior thesis was done on Alinsky and his teachings have continued to be the political motivations in her life.
For those of you who are not familiar with Saul Alinsky, I urge you strongly to read the following article about the close relationship between Clinton and Alinsky – and just precisely what the motivations of these two people are; and I assure you – they are ANYTHING but Christian.

6. The Second Amendment
Regardless of what your feelings are concerning the rights of Americans to own firearms, I would suggest you at least have the knowledge of the following:
Hillary Clinton is committed to doing away with the Second Amendment of the US Constitution at her earliest opportunity. She is on record stating that gun control will be at or near the very top of her list of immediate actions if she is elected President. Although she will not comment on continued questions regarding outright gun confiscation, many on the left are convinced this is where she is headed if elected. Clinton has previously endorsed the writings of Alinsky on this subject as well as others: Quoting Lenin, Alinsky wrote in his book, Rules for Radicals: “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.”
May I remind you, that history finds that more people have been murdered by their own governments AFTER the governments managed to confiscate the weapons of their citizens – than any other mass murders in the history of mankind.
The Bible carries many verses about protecting one’s self and others from harm. None is more clear than the following found in Nehemiah 4:
17 Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon. 18 As for the builders, each wore his sword girded at his side as he built, while the trumpeter stood near me. … 21 So we carried on the work with half of them holding spears from dawn until the stars appeared. …. 23 So neither I, my brothers, my servants, nor the men of the guard who followed me, none of us removed our clothes, each took his weapon even to the water.
Hillary Clinton will destroy your ability to protect yourself, your family and others!
7. ISIS and the Great Trojan Horse
Regardless of your feelings about the “Refugees” coming out of the Middle East – ‘feelings’ must now consider facts as they have engulfed Europe on a massive scale.
FBI Director James Comey has recently released a statement that tells of more than 7,700 TERRORIST attacks in America over the last year. Do you remember hearing about 7,700 TERRORIST ATTACKS in America over the last year? No, you do not, because they were not reported by the national news media or anyone else. Those attacks have been hidden from us – on purpose.
Europeans have had their homelands stolen from them by the great masses coming from the Middle East. The media will tell you this ‘Refugee’ crisis is filled with women and children simply trying to escape a war torn tragedy. Have you seen the videos of the mass of humanity moving across Europe? Can you find the masses of “women and children”? No, you cannot because the swarm of humanity is 95% men, of fighting age, unattached and swearing they will take America next.
Hillary Clinton says she wants to bring in 500% MORE “Refugees” from the Middle East and says she will vet them all. FBI Director Comey, Homeland Security and former intelligence military officers ALL have said without any reservation whatsoever that these ‘Refugees’ CANNOT BE VETTED – as for the huge majority of them, there is no information about them to vet. Stand way back and see this reality as it really is – this is the INVASION that the Koran demands from its followers.
8. GAY MARRIAGE, SODOMY, GENDER REBELLION
For the Christian who believes that gay marriage, sodomy and gender rebellion are simply a ‘right’ for those Americans to be entitled to, I would once again suggest strongly that you consult the Bible on these subjects as well. The stance taken by Hillary Clinton on these subjects is in direct opposition to what the Bible teaches.
The deviant ‘rights’ DEMANDED by the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer) organizations are in DIRECT opposition to the Lord’s words and are in DIRECT opposition to His teachings. Make no mistake about this issue; the LGBTQ will not stop until it has destroyed every shred possible of ANY church that takes an opposing stance on these issues. If Hillary Clinton is elected President, she will then take the lead of these organizations as Barack Obama has done for the last eight years.
9. Hillary Clinton; Liar
Hillary Clinton is without any question whatsoever, the most dishonest politician the United States has ever witnessed. Her entire political life has been filled with lies, deceit and deception – and at a cost to others which have included broken countries; broken families; deaths of numerous people in her wake; and a selfishness seldom seen in the history of mankind. She has lied about the Irish peace process; her vote in favor of the Iraq war; her reason for illegally using a personal email server; her exposure of sensitive classified documents of the US; that her family was dead broke when they left the White House (they claimed income of $12 MILLION for that year); about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia; where Chelsea was on 9/11; who she was named after; Benghazi… and the list goes on and on, and on and on. We don’t need another liar-in-chief. We are just finishing 8 years of a lying President; and that didn’t work!
There can be no justification whatsoever for voting for a person such as Hillary Clinton; at least no justification by a Christian. JUST BECAUSE SHE’S A WOMAN ( and you might be considering voting for her just because she is a ‘woman’) DOES NOT MEAN SHE CAN’T BE A MONSTER! NOTHING about this woman can be considered moral, ethical or responsible. She has no emotions – she has no soul. But it is up to the Christian, himself or herself, as to what you do. Your country, your family and your way of life hangs in the balance; but most importantly – your relationship with Jesus – and He has already spoken as to the path He expects us to take.
Now let’s talk about Donald Trump. For a great many of us, Donald Trump is our choice for President only because he is the lesser of two evils. His life, in many instances, has been like the old saying goes – “rude, crude and socially unacceptable”. He has offended many by his personal behavior and has turned off many by his manner of speaking and his bluntness. He is certainly not “politically correct” or smooth talking as a career politician. But aren’t the ‘smooth talkers’ exactly what we are tired of hearing in our leaders? Wouldn’t we really rather hear the raw truth coming from real emotion and make real informed decisions for a change? To his credit, Trump is also putting up his “Life, his Fortune and his “Sacred Honor” to save this country. Would you run for this office? Would you make the personal sacrifices which he has? But as I stated at the start of this letter to you, ANY vote which is cast, or not as the case may be, due to emotion or due to simply not liking a candidate is a vote that very, very probably is a vote AGAINST God’s word.
Very little is known about what Donald Trump would actually do as President. What he is saying on the issues, in almost every instance, is in direct opposition to the stances taken by Hillary Clinton. But we don’t know Trump like we know Clinton as she has had years upon years of a proven track record and where she intends to take America. Trump has not.
The election of 2016 CANNOT be about feelings and/or personalities. 2016 MUST be about issues and where each candidate intends to take America and our families. So let’s talk about what we do know and what has led so many Christian leaders around the country to come to the endorsement of Donald Trump.
On Religious Freedom, Trump has assured Christians all over the country that our Christian rights WILL BE PROTECTED;
On Abortion, Trump was at one time pro-choice. Today he says he is pro-life and has been since 2011. The National Right to Life Committee has endorsed Donald Trump for President.
On the Supreme Court, Trump has put out a list of people he is considering for the next appointment to the Supreme Court. That list features a large majority of sound conservative candidates.
On the Second Amendment, Trump has endorsed the US Constitution as the law of the land. He has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
On ISIS and the Great Trojan Horse, Trump has said he wants to halt all Muslim immigration into the US until a foolproof system is set up to find out who the people are who want to come into the country.
On GAY MARRIAGE, SODOMY, GENDER REBELLION, Trump has said that he is pro traditional marriage; but…. Trump’s position has continued to “evolve” and change on gay marriage, sodomy and transgenders and has been very difficult to tie down. Instead of making it very clear where he stands, he continues to cause more questions than answers to the irritation of most conservatives and Christians.
On Honesty, Trump has coined the phrase of Hillary Clinton as being the ‘World’s Biggest Liar’. While we cannot judge how often Donald Trump has lied to the American public, comparing him to Hillary Clinton on this subject would appear to be like comparing the knowledge of calculus by a 9th grade student to the knowledge of the holder of a PHD on the same subject!
Most of the people that we personally know who have met and talked with Donald Trump come away with a good understanding of where he wants to take America; and they have been seriously impressed. By far, most of the Christian leaders we are in touch with, have reached the same conclusion. From a Christian perspective, which is precisely where we all should be, there is absolutely no doubt as to where our voting responsibilities should be. While Donald Trump is certainly not our first choice for President – he is far, far preferably to a woman who is set on turning America into the Marxist society of her life dream.
In the end, we all must face the Lord with this choice of our life time. I pray that you and your family will pray very long and very hard about the choices you make in this election. Our choices will effect hundreds of millions of people worldwide – and they cannot be undone.
