I’m still getting notifications from Bill Randles’ blog whenever someone posts a comment on his thread about Donald Trump.
Among those comments I came across the following from “Faith Contender”.
The first part refers to something I said about a statement made by Hilary Clinton shown in the video I wrote about here:
I tried to answer “Faith Contender” on Randles’ blog, however it seems like Randles deleted that reply, fortunately I kept a copy of it and reproduce it in full below. Note that both the actual content of the video AND what I wrote about it aren’t addressed. “Faith Contender” approaches the matter with collection of assumptions and second hand information ( such as “from what I heard she was referring to …”).
It seems like few of those commenting on Randles’ blog have actually viewed the video for themselves to make their own judgement, OR they are in agreement with its content and the methods used by its makers.
Faith Contender says:
What do you think she might have meant? That too many believers were engaging in heresy? First of all, no one has the right to tell anyone to ‘change their religion’! That is not their choice, it is ours. Second, this is a free country, and we have the right of freedom of religion acknowledged (we have the right anyway, only it is honored here… or it once was.) Third, from what I heard she was referring to gay marriage. Fourth, true believers will never change their religion or deny our faith. Fifth, no one has to do anything as no one can force anyone without their consent. Sixth, the only thing we ‘must’ do is remain loyal to Jesus unto death. Seventh, hillary has to change her religion. (One day every knee will bow… etc.) HA.
But yes, you do deceive yourself and I tell you this out of love.
Hi Faith Contender, I had decided not to comment here again, but I think you deserve a reply.
In NO way has anything I’ve said been intended as acceptance or support of Clinton or her beliefs.
I posted a link to a blog post I wrote about the video that Bill promoted above – and I pointed out that the video was a deceptive and manipulative piece of propaganda. GENUINE Christians should not (would not) resort to such tactics as those used within that video.
This is one of the clearest examples of what is done on the video:
After showing a short excerpt of Clinton speaking, the presenter returns and excitedly says:
“Did you see that? Did you notice that she said that the change of Christian beliefs is the unfinished business of the 20th Century? This means that she wants to persecute Christians.”
But let’s have a look at what she ACTUALLY said:
“I believe the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their society is the great unfinished business of the 21st century.”
Is that what the presenter has claimed she has said? Is there any truth to what he claims?
But then he continues, revealing the real agenda behind the video when he says
“God willing, Donald Trump will vanquish this witch…”
The issue I’ve been trying to address is NOT about Clinton or Trump – it’s been about the behaviour and attitudes of professing Christians, willing to lie and promote lies for a political agenda that has nothing at all to do with the Kingdom of God.
Does THAT make me deceived?
Does that make me a member of a religious cult “Prolly more than one”, as Jerrod* accused later?
