I wish I could say I was shocked and outraged. I even wish that I could say I told you so, but I can’t because I was both hopeful and yet truthful with myself.
“In whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” II Corinthians 4:4
When Christ opens a heart, a person’s eyes are opened to see things clearly. The illusion of the world is revealed—its inconsistencies and lies—and this knowledge is then used to turn him to the pursuit of the invisible kingdom, the kingdom of the Son of God. He can discern things he never before could have and enjoy a revelation that is freeing.
It is estimated that across the United States 50,000 new laws are passed every year. In twenty years that is one million new laws. Each law could be construed as a means to take away a public right. At a minimum, the government has determined that a million rights that we had twenty years ago may no longer be rights. In fact, the government does not seem to believe that we have rights that cannot be eroded while at the same time an attempt is being made to stir women into thinking that abortion is a right!
You see, Ted Cruz believed that all rights come from God alone as did the founding fathers who wrote our constitution. He was not shy in saying how and why he believed God was the source of all truth. I believe that was the catalyst for his demise. It is quite clear that not all believers listen to the logic of Jesus, and it is a mistake to believe that carnal man wants the truth (neither did the believer when he was carnal).
It is only as we love the TRUTH of the bible and Jesus’s words, that true things become appealing and compelling. It is a sad day to know how lost this nation is and how many reject the truth. Ted Cruz did not compromise his message and he had the honor of delivering it to millions across this nation. He many not have won the Republican nomination, but he was able to lift up the word of God to those who would listen. He was able to tell his story of redemption and that of his family. He would have a made a great president representing the people and the God that died to serve us all.
You see our job as Christians who want, in our own very small circle, to leave an eternal legacy of truth must not dissuade men concerning their inconsistencies and illogical thinking, but to persuade people of the TRUTH.
TED CRUZ got involved in politics because he saw things clearly and assumed that constituents wanted to hear true things. He is probably disappointed to the extent that carnal, fallen man does not want to hear true things no matter how intellectual or refined the thought might be. How sad for our nation and for those that think their own personal rights trump the truth. How very sad.
