Pence-Ive About Trump? Maybe This Helps…


Last week a dozen folks from our church traveled to Red Oak, Iowa.  We served in that community, sharing the Gospel with over 200 people at the Montgomery County Fair.  Our booth (Crossroads Community Church, Red Oak, IA) was situated across from the Republican’s table.  Mike PenceOn Saturday afternoon, I had the privilege of meeting United States Congressman, David Young.  After we discussed his spiritual life (he’s a born again believer), I posed a political question.  I wanted to know his opinion of Trump’s Vice Presidential pick, Mike Pence.  Young expressed complete Confidence in the Indiana Governor and assured me this man’s evangelical faith was the real deal.  In fact, he believes Pence will be a fantastic help to Trump, especially in the matters of what it means to truly be a follower of Jesus Christ.  Now home, I decided to do some personal research on Mike Pence, verifying the Iowa Congressman’s glowing endorsement.  So, here’s what I discovered:

  1.  Mike Pence has worked as a Lawyer, a political talk show radio host, a Congressman, and now serves the Hoosier State as Governor, elected in 2013.
  2. Pence’s family raised him as a staunch Catholic.  He attended Mass several times a week as a child and served as an altar boy on multiple occasions.
  3. He committed his life to Christ in college.
  4. A personal mantra about himself is, “Christian, Conservative, Republican…in that order.”
  5. From the Roll Call website:  “His reputation as a culture warrior was unsullied. He opposed federal spending on embryonic stem cell research, was active in efforts to advance a constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage, fought expansion of abortion rights and got new federal funding for Planned Parenthood cut off for a time.”
  6. At last December’s Republican Jewish Coalition’s Conference, Pence said concerning Israel, “Israel’s enemies are our enemies, Israel’s cause is our cause. If this world knows nothing else, let it know this: America stands with Israel.”

Governor Pence would be the first to say he’s not perfect.  In fact, he calls himself a “pretty ordinary Christian.”  But, his record in politics speaks volumes, Obviously he strives to make political dealings based upon his knowledge of Scripture and his walk with Jesus Christ.  While in Congress, he was characterized as one of the strongest social Conservatives in the Republican Party.  Maybe…just maybe…a little Pence might wear off on Trump.

And that wouldn’t be a bad thing.

Do You Really Care About Our Kids?


God has blessed my family with six children, three boys…three girls….a modern day Brady Boggs8Bunch of sorts.  When our family piles out of the Suburban or walks into the grocery store, our presence raises eyebrows.  I wish I had a nickel for every time a person asks, “You know how that happens, right?” My favorite response is, “My wife knows, but she won’t tell me.”  Truth be told, we love kids.  It’s that plain and simple.

We (our family) associate or tend to support a political Party that champions children, starting at conception.  We proudly claim to be the Party of Life.  And that’s the case for the GOP unless the preferred Candidate fails to receive the Party’s nod for nominee and then some moan and groan, threatening to support a third Party candidate or refusing to vote in November.  But my third Party candidate is pro-life, you say.  That’s great, but in our overwhelmingly entrenched two-party system, a third party candidate only serves to steal votes away from either the Democrat or Republican nominee.  In this case, Donald Trump stands to lose the most from individuals dead set against the GOP nominee.

Am I one hundred percent convinced Trump’s a true Conservative?  Absolutely not!  He concerns me…a great deal.  However, am I convinced Hillary Clinton plans to perpetuate Obama’s legacy by sticking America with a third term of Obama’s ideologies?  Absolutely!  She’s promised as much.  And this is one of the only things she’s said that can be trusted.

Time and time again I converse with Conservatives who won’t vote for Trump because their conscience won’t allow it.  Well, if that’s you, I pose the following questions:

Will your conscience allow Hillary Clinton to nominate four or more Supreme Court Justices?

Will your conscience vote for Hillary, a woman worshiped by the nation’s largest abortion provider?

Will your conscience vote for Hillary even after she claimed Margaret Sanger as a hero?

Will your conscience vote for a woman who lied about Benghazi, blaming the attack on a YouTube video?

Will your conscience vote for a woman who compromised national security by unilaterally deciding to utilize her own private server and email?

Will your conscience vote for a woman whose husband sexually harassed and assaulted scores of women?  (Hillary called the women’s charges, “Bimbo eruptions.)

Will your conscience vote for a woman who’s been called “extremely careless” by the FBI?

And let me ask again, will your conscience permit you to allow Hillary Clinton to nominate four or more Supreme Court Justices, who enjoy lifetime appointments?

A vote for a Third Party candidate or boycotting the ballot box in November is a vote for Hillary…a violation of the conscience many claim the desire to protect.

Trump’s not perfect…not even close.  And we really don’t know how America will fare under a Trump/Pence Administration.  Clinton’s track record speaks for itself; Hillary’s term in office might be America’s death knell.

So I ask, do you really care about our kids?
