Voting Cruz: Has God Abandoned America?

As Cruz-mania skyrockets exciting millions, I still get emails from professed Christians ripping me to shreds for choosing Cruz over Trump. These anti-Cruz Christians dig deep, coming up with reasons so weak not to choose Cruz that they equal saying Cruz took another kid’s candy when he was seven. Then, they fall back on rehashing Cruz’s eligibility.

Frankly, anti-Cruz Christians have me scratching my head. Clearly, these Christians are willing to overlook all of Mr. Trump’s shortcomings, anti-Christian political positions and liberal leanings.

Meanwhile, they “passionately” leave no stone unturned, relentless in their attempts to discredit and disqualify the only presidential candidate with a proven record of faithfully standing up for Godly principles and values. What is up with that?

A highly respected theologian used Romans 1:18-32 as the text for his sermon. The verses speak of people so stubborn and in love with their sin that God turned His back on them; giving them over to reprobate minds.

The theologian asserts that our nation has become so evil that God has turned His back, abandoning America. Unarguably, wickedness is reigning supreme, unchallenged everywhere you look in America. Religious freedom in America is under assault like never before; Christians jailed for not embracing behaviors which God calls abominations.

Romans 1:18-32 not only condemns certain behaviors, it expresses God’s wrath against those who “approve of those who practice them.” I thought, “Whoa, by demanding that believers speak approvingly of what God calls sin, government is mandating that Christians defy God, subjecting themselves to His wrath.” Could you imagine a day would come in America when Christians would be persecuted for not placing government’s authority above God’s?

God calls Christians to be salt; to make a difference in our world. Sadly, far too many churches are silent regarding sin, afraid of financial loss and federal government retaliation. Some churches tolerate everything in the name of love. “…if the salt loses its saltiness…it is no longer good for anything…” Matthew 5:13.

Then there are Christians who believe we have already lost America’s culture war, causing them to concede social issues. They ignore their selected presidential candidate praising and supporting Planned Parenthood; exposed as a dead-baby-body-parts-chop-shop for profit; intact heads selling at a premium. These Christians are willing to turn a blind eye to PP’s horrors; put the issue of Americans killing over 3,000 babies per day on the back burner. Yeah, that’s what Jesus would do.

Cruz is the only GOP presidential contender who believes social issues are a priority; vital to who we are as a nation.

Ted Cruz has a long history of defending religious liberty on numerous occasions including defeating atheists who sued to tear down a cross from a veterans’ memorial.

Decades of allowing the anti-Christian movement to go unchallenged has many Americans flat-out afraid of having a man of God in the Oval Office. Countless movies and TV shows portray Christians as over-the-top fanatics, haters and whackos.

Ironically, America was founded upon a foundation of Christian principles and values, which have made America great and exceptional. Flipping through TV channels confirms how far off-the-rails our nation has fallen folks.

Anti-Christian zealots, typically liberals, love to point out the shortcomings of those professing Christianity. Liberals despise behavioral standards of morality, which explains their visceral hatred for Christianity. Liberals absurdly claim that unless you can walk-on-water, you have no right to espouse behavioral standards.

Well, Christianity “ain’t” about being perfect or doing enough good works to outweigh one’s bad. Christianity is about repentance and totally trusting Jesus to get into heaven. Surrendering one’s life to Christ gives them a heart for God. They desire and strive to do the right thing, though they fail repeatedly. “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41

Ted Cruz does not profess perfection. The man was wise enough to realize that he is a sinner in need of a savior, Jesus. He surrendered his life to Christ. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:10

History chronicles that people have suffered severely when ruled by leaders who believe there is no power above theirs. “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” Proverbs 29:2

Another liberal position has me scratching my head. Islamist believe their faith permits them to kill a disobedient wife and behead homosexuals. Islam advocates violence against non-believers (infidels).

Fight those who believe not in Allah…” Qur’an 9:29

And yet, liberals passionately defend and protect Muslims while throwing everything including the kitchen sink at Christians; claiming that Christianity is the archenemy of women and homosexuals. Christianity says, “…with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.” Jeremiah 31:3

What is up with liberals’ not seeing the obvious contrast between the religion they hate and the one they demand that Americans respect? Obama’s DOJ vows to jail anyone speaking badly about Islam.

I am voting for Ted Cruz, the only candidate I know will fight the Left’s relentless insidious quest to turn our nation away from God. I pray that the theologian’s scary sermon is wrong; that it is not too late – that God has not abandoned America.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

God bless, Lloyd

    Wow! Very powerfully written! I have had these same thoughts but I’m not nearly as eloquent with “the pen”. Thank you Lloyd, for voicing the thoughts of this Christian so well! I’m gonna share this, quoting a few of your statements above. I hope this gets around quickly. There isn’t much time left.

    Thank you Lloyd! I am deeply troubled that God is giving us exactly what we are asking for. Hillary on the left and Trump on the right. Both representatives of immorality. But as Christians, we must continue to reach out to the lost daily, and I appreciate your faithfulness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

    I don’t question whether Cruz is eligible. My thinking is he’s unelectable because of his overt pandering to the Christian right. Trump is our only hope for beating Hillary Clinton, and beating Hillary Clinton is our only hope for survival as a Country. Plus, I’m not 100% convinced as to Cruz’ Christianity. Sometimes it looks more like a dog and pony show that he trots out in highly religious States, where he knows that showing off his “Christianity” will buy him votes. Nor am I convinced (as many people are) that Trump is an ungodly man. Reagan was a Christian, but he didn’t make a big public spectacle of his Faith, and he was a great President. Two Presidents I recall in recent History who made a lot of noise about their Faith are Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, and they were both horrible Presidents. That’s my perspective. Think about it and take it for what it’s worth.

    Yes, Lloyd…I thank you for your eloquent words, of which I am lacking these days.

    I think Cruz is the only man who is strong enough to beat Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in a contest.

    Cruz has studied the Constitution and probably knows it as well as Mark Levin, well, almost.

    Ted is also a very Christian man although many doubt his faith, but again, that is due to the negative press about him.

    “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

    Only God can get Cruz elected in a Godless country. I hope and pray that God hasn’t abandoned America totally.
    Thank you, and keep up the great writing, Lloyd.

    I’m with you Lloyd. I appreciate you standing up for what is right. Our only hope is God and people like you who say what needs to be said.
    Thank you and your wife for campaigning and speaking out.

    This is America and people have a right to vote for who they want. Lloyd you taught me tolerance as you never gave me a bad time for being an atheist. I’m a Trump supporter and have no problem with you and Mary being Cruz supporters. The Republican party is diverse and I think it’s so much stronger when people can agree to disagree on issues.

    Having said all that, Planned Parenthood is inching me closer and closer to becoming pro-life with their gruesome practices, special interests and corruption. It’s comical how they’re suing someone who exposed them. But worst of all, they target minorities for abortions they profit of off. Racism and exploitation never died at Planned Parenthood. Eugenics is still alive and well. Sick!

    Mr. Marcus, you have always been right on target. And with this commentary…again right on. Nail meet hammer head!
    Just a curious question. Is your/our support of Cruz been the reason The Daily Caller has limited your articles? I miss seeing them
    Keep the Faith, Brother
