    Either candidate came to your church?

    WikiLeaks: Even Clinton's Team Knew She Looked 'Insincere' Going To Church


    I would hope the pastor would preach the hard hitting, clear gospel message with clear vivid detail of the results of receiving and of rejecting that message.

    Maybe also something of 1 John 1:
    5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.

    Then watch for their response.

    If either one walk into a church I was at. I would ask for forgiveness and than stick my head between my legs and kiss my butt goodby. I know lighting will strike that church like no one has ever seen since Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Pray that the spirit would bring the word to life that it would produce life in the hearer.

    Jesus prevented his disciples from calling down fire from heaven on at least one occasion. I think that restriction still applies.

    I would pray that their hearts would become "the good ground", that the "seed" would take bear "fruit".

    I would welcome them from the pulpit, as I welcome any guest. In the pastoral prayer, I would ask God to guide them in the path ahead. Other than that, I would conduct the service as if they were not there, following the spirits guidance throughout.
    Now, AFTER the service, when everyone had left, Judy and I would have a little extra prayer time. If Trump, we would thank God for the opportunity to meet him. If the Hildebeast, we would ask God to cleanse the church from any lingering spirits.

    If Trump showed up, I'd welcome him with open arms.

    If the "beast" came through the doors, I'd sit in the back pew, ready to run when the roof comes crashing in.

    If Trump showed up... I'd want to shake his hand.

    The beast? I'd bring marshmallows for when it burst into flames.

    God loves sinners
    Just not the sin
    Even as man in his un regenerated is an enemy of God , he still shed his blood for all
    Jeffrey Dahmner reportedly came to Chrst in prison before he died

    I guess we can afford to be nice.

    God is nice to us even though we don't deserve it.

    We don't have to worry about how to punish them. God has that all wrappe up. If we knew what all He has in store for them, we would pity them...or laugh at them--see Psalm 52:5-7.
