False Prophets and Political Christians

I have seen a definite rise in false prophets and so-called “political Christians,” which are those people who use the Bible to defend or justify mostly political issues without much consideration of what Jesus actually said. I have also seen: a number of people using ministries to spread political Christian messages; politicians talking about the “evangelical vote;” and folks acting like simply because the President sat in a room while some people prayed and took pictures, he must somehow be a follower of Jesus.

Watch out, Saints. End times prophesy predicts the rise of false prophets, and so we shouldn’t really be surprised by that. But remember that, whenever anyone uses God or the Bible to justify a particular political, legal, or social issue, Jesus was neither Republican nor Democrat. He is both conservative and liberal, and would likely find fault with parts of both sides. Line everything up to Him. Line it up to love.

By the way, we had to stop giving to a particular Christian legal organization because it slowly crossed that line between doing purely God’s work in this world to representing radically conservative views that only hurt God’s people. Normally I would spot such a change, but I got caught off guard on that one.

Right before the election, I said the current president wouldn’t win, but that if he did, we should watch out because it meant it was a supernatural event. Now that we’re in it, start brushing up on your supernatural principles, end times prophesy, and what you will personally do to get ready.

Denise and I have been a bit too busy to write. She has an excuse, as she works more than anyone I know. But I did want to mention that my new album was just released and it’s being rejected more than usual by the secular radio (probably because I have scripture on the cover and tunes with titles like, “Come Holy Spirit”). It’s still doing pretty good (on 135 stations) but I’m convinced this relative rejection is due to the word “Christian” and what the false prophets have done to it. Every time, for example, a group of us lays hands on the president and acts like everything is okay — i.e., that he actually believes in what’s going on and is somehow following the teachings of Jesus on a daily basis — makes people think that we followers of Jesus don’t know what we’re even talking about.
