Just A Word About One Christian's Opinion of Ted Cruz's Last Stand

AM SO BUSY RIGHT NOW, I HARDLY HAVE TIME TO TURN ON MY COMPUTER.  Still I stay in touch these days on my phone. Then when I have something to say, however trivial and shallow,  I rev up the computer.  Today is one of those days.

Tuesday may be Ted Cruz's last stand. For me---an evangelical Christian---it's not a minute too soon.  Ted Cruz, and especially his loudmouth father inappropriately imploring the Body of Christ to vote for Ted or else doom will descend on all of us,  has become a monumental, desperate bore to me in this election.  No candidate, not even his son, can save us outright from the moral, political and fiscal slippery slope we're careening down at warp speed.Whatever any of us, including me,  thinks of Donald Trump or doesn't think,  the Cruz team, seems over the top and frankly has become so unattractive,  I've totally withdrawn my potential support.   I'll take a shot of Jose Donald any day over the heavy-handed Cruzes.

Please let it be over for Ted Cruz tonight.  Then send Cruz's father to a retreat center somewhere to chill out and pray for our country.

Now back to my move.

Variously attributed to Ruth or Billy Graham is the saying that "If God does not judge America--He will surely have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."

One of my favorite ministers gave a sermon in which he observed that God's Personnel Department has the strangest selection criteria imaginable. Try to think of one biblical character chosen by God for a task, often in answer to prayers, that you would have chosen. Not many, and yet look how they did.

The Donald could be the instrument of judgement or revival. Praying for the best, planning for the worst.

Absolutely true, Treg. God does have a strange and unlikely personnel department and who knows, maybe that's why Hillary might be next president...an instrument of judgment. In any event we'll undoubtedly get what we most deserve. Great comment...thanks.
