So, "What Do You Think of the New Omnibus Spending Bill?"

Last week Congress passed the most immoral spending bill in a long time---perhaps ever.

Late in the day on Friday, some Republican lawmakers were pleading with President Trump to veto it.

He said, "I'm considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill ...." But in the end---he didn't.

Some of my friends have asked, "So, what do you think of the new omnibus spending bill?"

Government funding was set to run out last Saturday at 12:01 AM. The president threatened to veto the fix, but in the end, did not do so.

The Heritage Foundation's Daily Signal published this after Congress passed the bill, but before the president made his decision regarding a veto.

You will note the sentiments of at least 11 GOP lawmakers who were not happy about it.

I agree. It is the most immoral legislation I have seen---beyond anything I personally expected with the GOP supposedly in control of the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office.

This is why the Bible instructs us not to put our trust in "man," but in God. Men (and women) fail. God does not.

More than one of my friends have asked what I think about it.

I agree with a growing number of pastors and Christian leaders---in many of whom I have a great deal of confidence. They include Pastor Jack Graham, Pastor David Jeremiah, Tony Perkins and others.

They have signed the following statement. I join them:

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.
