Lunch with Demons

“Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late-term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb, right up until the moment of birth”  Donald Trump

It’s fashionable to dismiss Donald Trump as a pompous windbag.  But what other United States President chooses to speak to the Right to Life Movement from the Rose Garden?  Obviously, God isn’t a Republican nor a Democrat.

We pray for leaders like Moses who hear and obey the voice of God (cf. Exodus 3:13-20).

We need leaders who speak the mind of God and who are fearless.   But even in a time of war, God asks us to  “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am meek and humble of heart;  and you will find rest for yourselves.For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” (Matthew 11:28).  The Apostle faced his share of wickedness in high places.   And yet,  Paul recommended a change of weapons (cf. II Corinthians 10:4; Ephesians 6) always remembering to “speak the truth in love.”

With the exception of a few congressman and senators, everyone claims some type of  Christian or Jewish faith.   Why is there such a big gap in areas of morality?  My guess is its bigger than policies.

  Why is there such a big gap in areas of morality? 

Pope Francis says this about the need for a personal relationship:

  1. Faith is born of an encounter with the living God who calls us and reveals his love, a love which precedes us and upon which we can lean for security and for building our lives.
  2. For those early Christians, faith, as an encounter with the living God revealed in Christ, was indeed a “mother”, for it had brought them to the light and given birth within them to divine life, a new experience and a luminous vision of existence for which they were prepared to bear public witness to the end.
  3. Faith, tied as it is to conversion, is the opposite of idolatry; it breaks with idols to turn to the living God in a personal encounter.
  4. Faith is God’s free gift, which calls for humility and the courage to trust and to entrust; it enables us to see the luminous path leading to the encounter of God and humanity: the history of salvation.

If you claim a relationship with God but promote policies outside of God’s covenant, you may be entertaining a demon.   

Do you have a vital relationship with the living God?

Today’s  Psalm reminds us,  The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.”   God’s ways never change.   So. if you claim a relationship with god but promote policies outside of God’s covenant, you may be entertaining a demon.

Jesus promised believers an open invitation to a devine lunch (Rev. 3:20; John 6).   We have another open invitation on the table.  The Apostle Paul predicts a time when lunch with demons will be a national pastime (I Timothy 4:1).

Why such a disparity?  It’s because some congressman are sitting at the wrong table. It’s time to repent and choose what side we are on (Exodus 32:26).
