GOP Candidates, Jesus, and Barabbas

As not only citizens of this wonderful nation, but children of our Heavenly Father, we have an obligation to vote. With that being said, don't be fooled in thinking that the way you vote (or not vote) will not be recorded in the record books in Heaven. We have a responsibility to research each candidate and vote for those whose values are aligned with our sacred US Constitution (and for members of the LDS church, for those that mimic what our gospel teaches--that's Freedom). 

You may scoff at what I am saying, but someday you will answer to GOD on how your choice effected this great nation, our rights, and our religion. 

It's so simple to me-- Lucifer is never changing, he is always trying to destroy good and make evil look so enticing. I've pondered this thought for some time now and I honestly don't mean to offend anyone by saying this, but we are at a serious crossroad. It's interesting how two thousand years ago the people had a similar choice between good and evil. The Children of Israel voted to have Barabbas--a robber, murderer, and insurrectionist--released from prison when they clearly had a better choice. Jesus Christ was kind, loving, performed miracles, spoke of GOD, and promoted peace yet his own people were so filled with hate and anger that all common sense left them when they chose to let Barabbas free and crucify Christ. 

The people in the United States of America have become so entitled, so angry, so uneducated that they are willing to mimic the Children of Israel in their choice for their President. It's no secret that Donald Trump is wealthy, successful, loud spoken, and willing to say the things that many, many Americans are thinking, so they therefor believe he would make a great President. But this is no reason to ignore the crude, horrific words, threats, accusations, and lies that come from this evil man's mouth and crown him with the center seat of this great nation.

Ted Cruz was born for this responsibility. As a child of immigrants fleeing communist Cuba, Ted was educated in our constitution since his early elementary days. After memorizing the sacred document as a teenager, he recited it across the US with a group of high school students called the Constitutional Corroborators. He has a history of standing up against the Establishment and fighting for the Constitution, which equals freedom and peace. I honestly can understand why the people of the United States, more specifically the GOP, can't seem to comprehend the truth about Ted Cruz, because it doesn't fit with their agenda and Ted Cruz doesn't bring the same ratings ($$) that the Donald does. 

Former GOP candidates that I highly respected, along with other prominent Republicans, have sold their souls and endorsed Donald Trump. What's in it for them? We may never find out.

Somedays I feel like Pilate's wife--with a sinking feeling for the future--standing back watching these things unfold, unable to understand why the angry people are so unwilling to think logically in the choice between good and evil.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
