Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

7:38 PM - The Nature of a Career Politician

This excerpt from an excellent article explains perfectly why the political elite do not understand or care about Trump's popularity and also why Trump does not understand why the political establishment is cheating on him.

The political elite are a different species of human. They have no morals, no sense of right or wrong, nobody to give account to for their crimes. The have sold their souls to obtain the riches and power they have, mindless puppets of the devil they serve. But what they fail to realize is that they will one day face somebody even their god cannot save them from. Hell and the lake of fire will open wide to receive almost all of them. Perhaps a very few will barely be saved.

----------------------------------

In my years of working closely with government leaders (and would-be leaders) from my own country and internationally, I've learned over time that there's a mind-set that's common to those who have made politics their life's work. They think fundamentally differently from businesspeople who learn to make things work both practically and economically over an extended period. The latter must do so, or go out of business. Political leaders, however, don't have this restriction. For them, the job is not one of being profitable and effective in satisfying the public with a good or service. For them, profitability is irrelevant. Further, they need not satisfy the public; they need merely to succeed in imposing their programmes onto the public.

Career politicians assume that the nature of leadership is to burden the populace with legislation and taxation. They truly don't understand the concept of limited government. It's an absurd anomaly to them, so the question is therefore only the manner in which they burden the populace. Lessening the burden is simply not an issue. Whilst they understand that voters wish to be told that the burden will be diminished, it's not by any means the intent of leaders to do so. In a politician's mind, the purpose of the existence of the populace is to fill the trough for the leaders. And, of course, the fuller, the better.
