"Faith" Takes Forefront In Georgia Election

Associated Press says Georgia has become the nation's hot spot this winter before twin senate runoff elections on Jan 5. 

AP also says "faith" has taken the forefront in this battle for control of the US Senate and possibly the US government.

Former Speaker of the House and Georgian, Newt Gingrich, says: "America's future depends on the outcomes of the elections for the US Senate in Georgia."

Politics in America often comes down to the issue of "faith", because no matter how hard the so-called progressives work to erase our heritage of Christian faith, it remains. 

Sometimes "faith" is a facade to fool the public---sometimes it's true biblical faith. We the People must be discerning.

That's the case in Georgia.

Be informed, not misled.

AP leads the people

Featuring the two Democrat candidates, black pastor Raphael Warnock and Jewish Jon Ossoff, in their choice of the photo atop their feature article, Associated Press begins with this: 

"Bishop Reginald Jackson stepped to the microphone at a drive-in rally outside a church in southwest Atlanta as his voice carried over the loudspeaker and the radio to people gathered in, around, and on top of cars that filled the parking lot."

"Let's keep Georgia blue," Jackson shouted, "Let's elect Jon Ossoff [and] Raphael Warnock to the United States Senate."

Bishop Jackson presides over more than 400 African Methodist Episcopal churches in Georgia. Jackson, shouting to the cars parked in the lot, said, "Do I have a witness?" "Somebody say amen." The horns honked.

Democrat candidate Warnock is senior pastor at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, the congregation led by the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.---and his father before him.

If biblical truth mattered, Warnock would be a heretic, but it doesn't matter to AP. And it probably won't to many who claim to be "religious."

AP immediately goes to work trying to help its public to understand how Warnock has been misunderstood, maligned, and misrepresented by conservatives and biblical Christians who have misunderstood his anti-Semitic rants over 25 or more years of "ministry." 

They are many. The pastor is also anti-military, often anti-American, and always anti-conservative.

He is well known for his ongoing defense of Barack Obama's pastor for 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

In fact, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has even suggested that Georgia may not be politically ready for Warnock because of his "faith" based beliefs.

The AJC notes that Warnock even defended these comments by Rev. Wright from his pulpit regarding America:  

"The government gives them drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law, and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no. Not God Bless America, God d**n America! That's in the Bible, for killing innocent people. God d**n America for treating her citizens as less than human. God d**n America as long as she keeps trying to act like she is God and she is supreme."

Only after these and other similar comments became public---and a political liability--- Mr. and Mrs. Obama threw the pastor who had married them and dedicated their children under the proverbial bus. Until then, they had no problem with his words.

Rev. Warnock has continually and publicly supported Wright, explaining these and other similar comments have been taken out of context.

Ossoff, a Jew, has defended Warnock in the past because they are not running against one another, rather both are running against Republicans.

Newt Gingrich on the consequences of the Jan. 5  senate election in Georgia.

Gingrich told his interviewer that "America's future depends on the outcomes of the elections for the US Senate in Georgia."

The interviewer told Gingrich: "A lot of people in the audience are discouraged...they think it's [the election] not going to be legitimate---there's no point in voting....Do you have a message for these people?"

Newt urged Georgians to vote and volunteer as poll watchers.

Then said this:

"My message is very simple. The future of the United States depends on the outcome of the Georgia Senate races. If you don't want a radical left-wing America dominated by left-wing judges with massive tax increases, with a policy, frankly, of appeasing China, and you don't want that kind of future, you have to go out and vote. And then frankly, you have to volunteer as a poll watcher and make sure they don't steal the election. But I think these things are vital and I don't think we should in any way underestimate how really important the Georgia Senate race [is]."

He also said the 2020 election, "may be the biggest Presidential theft since Adams and Clay robbed Andrew Jackson in 1824."

Newt noted that in 1824, 

"Andrew Jackson had 40% of the popular vote, but the guys who came in number two and three combined in the House of Representatives and John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay decided that even though Jackson got the most votes, he wouldn't be president. So Jackson spent the next four years attacking them for representing a corrupt establishment and decisively beat Adams in 1828, and really caused a dramatic uprising against the old order because people were sick of it."

He also warned that Democrats focus on election mechanics while Republicans focus on political campaigning, highlighting the get-out-the-vote efforts funded by Mark Zuckerberg and other far-left operatives.

The takeaway.

Both deception and corruption is rampant in our culture---and it always has been because mankind is flawed---broken by sin---imperfect.

First and foremost we must continue to preach the gospel, because that ultimately is the only answer and the only hope for humanity. 

And because we are called "salt and light" by Jesus Himself, we must not "become weary in well-doing."

Carry on knowing God is in control.

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