Dr. Bobby E. Mills on the Blame Game
Blame, blame, and blame is the name of the President Trump White House Game: Oops Gang. The Trump administration is unwilling to take responsibility for their own decisions; therefore, Trump and The White House project the blame for their administrative dysfunction upon President Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Schumer or the Democratic Party in general. Above all, President Trump is a “blame-game-specialist”. Shame! Shame! Shame!
Question: What is it for The Trump White House to Lie? America, remember the story of “Chicken-Little” who was always telling people “the sky is falling; the sky is falling”. And, one day Chicken Little went out and the sky was falling; but no one would listen to him. America, understand well, and heed the unadulterated “Word of God” because Jesus said it best: “Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.” (Luke 11: 28). God has warned us concerning “individuals” such as President Donald J. Trump: “When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart. Who hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation (nation/world).” (Proverbs 26: 25-26). President Trump is a “fake-leader” with no shame in his political game; only an insatiable desire to blame “OTHERS” for his own failures. Question: Whatever happened to “I and I alone can fix it”. Tweeting, blaming previous Presidential Administrations and “ungodly-political-posturing” is not public-policy-decision-making.
Christian Right Evangelicals are seemingly more spiritually in tune with “SIN” than the righteousness of God simply because of their overwhelming support for a “No-God-Conscience” individual such as President Donald J. Trump. America, this is indeed a “mind-boggling” spiritually disturbing reality. Saying Lord, Lord and running with the devil is truly an ungodly abomination. The Christian church should never become a country club; whereby pastoral leaders espouse spiritual words of inspiration from pulpits that simply fall upon deaf ears in the pews. Now, we know why Sunday morning is the most segregated hour in American society. Shame, shame, because money is the name of the game, and now we know, what “In God We Trust” truly means to Christian Right Evangelicals. Christian Right Evangelical understand this: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Timothy: 6:10). But, nevertheless Christian Right Evangelicals: “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.” (Psalms 7:11).
Christians should never support ungodly leadership mentalities such as that of President Trump and his counterpart Russian-Dictator-Putin, especially with nuclear capacity at their fingertips. God has declared no more water, but the fire next time. Moreover, God has given us the privilege of self-governance: the “sacred” democratic right to vote. And, if individuals do not “intelligently” know what to vote for, just maybe they should stay home. By the way, not voting is not a godly choice, but it is probably more desirable than placing an ungodly individual in The White House (The Peoples’ House).
America has experienced (100) days of “HELL” because we have a spiritually misguided President who does not understand democratic leadership but has an ungodly love for “communistic” dictatorship. President Trump for the past (100) days has been acting as though he is “stuck-on-hellish-stupidity”. As a result, American society has experienced “HELL” and is spiritually upside down without positive solutions to any of its socio-economic problems. American society is in “socio-political-turmoil”: its democratic institutions are being compromised, and an ungodly war is on the horizon in order to protect against impending impeachment proceedings for treason. Moreover, making “off-the-wall” war talk, and sword-raddling, against an “unstable-dictatorial-regime,” together produce a recipe for world annihilation. We all know, that a “wartime” President will not be impeached or lose a Presidential election. America, remember what God told Samuel (Israel Last Judge) to tell the Israelites about their desire for a “KING”, as well as their desire to be like other nations: “And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them…And Samuel heard all of the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the King that shall reign over them.” (1 Samuel 8: 6-9). God warned the Israelites: A King can be compromised, but the Israelites could not compromise the man of God (Samuel). And, of course, Saul was not God’s choice for King of the Israelites. On the 99th day of his Presidency, Donald J. Trump told the world in so many words: “I was qualified to be President (American Citizen), but I was not ready to be President of a Great Nation. Because I did not know the complexity of “American social democracy” and the amount of “complicated-work” involved”. Once again, what ever happened to: “I and I alone can fix-it”? It’s not easy being the President of the greatest nation on the planet.
Unfortunately, the Republican Party has become a nationalistic (White-Privilege-Oriented) “Grievance Party”, that is, a Political Party whose “voting-base” is made-up of individuals who have “socio-economic-grievances” against our democratic system of government based upon race/ethnicity as “The-Angry-White-Privilege-Right”, not The Christian Evangelical Right. Base-line Republican voters are using socio-economic-issues simply as a way to mask racism, bigotry, and sexism. The Party of Lincoln is spiritually dead. The Southern Dixiecrat Party and the Party of Reagan is alive and well, but the Party of Lincoln (Grand Ole Party) is dead. To top it off, we have had disastrous Republican Town Hall Meetings that turned into shouting matches and mayhem, the legislative debacle of repeal and replace “Obamacare”, building a Mexican-Style-Berlin-Style-Wall, the General Flynn Treason Investigation, Presidential midnight tweeting, The Trump-style War brigade, and the North-Korean-Mad-Man-Show. Question: Three more years of this? God help us all, even though God has already blessed America. But, too many Americans refuse to bless and honor God!!! America, we are on the edge of midnight; and God is angry with the wicked every day as well as those who seek to perpetuate evil. Thus: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16). Amen! Amen! Amen!
