There is a short video which was included in the original article from Christian News Network, and it is included here. It would behoove everyone professing to be “Christian” to open and listen to it, and especially Democratic candidate for president, Pete Buttigieg.
Do not be deceived by the words of Mr. Buttigieg. Do not get ensnared in the corrupted modern-day version of what passes for Christianity and being a Christian, which means saying you’re one, wearing a piece of jewelry resembling a cross, perhaps, and speaking continually of love, love, love all you need is love, like you’re the 5th Beatle, and reciting “Do not judge” without having an inkling of context and what Jesus was completely saying in the Sermon on the Mount, or the context of the word “love” in Scripture — which is not worldly emotional love, or the ways in which the world defines that most overused, misused word by the people of the world.
There are very few real disciples of Jesus Christ on this earth. A remnant of the total population.
Why? Because there are few who are truly REGENERATED, TRANSFORMED, RENEWED OF MIND AND SPIRIT, INDWELT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT — MAKING JESUS LORD OF THEIR LIVES.
Read the following article about Mr. Buttigieg. Who may state with his lips he is a Christian, but by his friuts and by his words expressing his what appear true beliefs? He is as much as Christian as the dead tree on the edge of my driveway which must be cut down and cast into the fire one day soon.
Mr. Buttigieg has the cunning and beguilement of the serpent in the Garden on his tongue and lips. And there is a reason for that. He has learned well from the master whom he serves.
Selecting certain words, passages, twisting and perverting them to suit his efforts. He attempts to remove and replace an unchangeable all-knowing, all-powerful, everything, Creator of everything God with modern-day philosophy and the individual man and woman knowing more, knowing better than God the Father of all true believers, God the Creator of all things known. Using words and passages he knows will eleict the desired response in his modern-day, unknowing, ignorant of the truth, of Scriptures listeners.
Anyone truly indwelt of the Holy Spirit, anyone truly walking along Jesus Christ as His earnest, faithful, obeident disciple in this life, presently, not in the past, presently KNOWS there are NO INCONSISTENCIES in the Bible through their study and discernment of God’s inerrant infallible living Word. Discerning wisely. Rightly dividing. Understanding context. KNOWING provided by and through the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Mr. Buttigieg is gaining in the polls.
Mr. Buttigieg lead in a straw poll in Iowa among all the democratic candidates running to be the President of the United States of America.
Read the article below, if not familiar with this person and gain much clearer insight into his real beliefs and who he truly serves. His true inner beliefs are the worlds, not God’s, not Christ’s, not the Holy Spirit’s, not what is contained in the Scriptures.
And if a person is not serving the Lord there is only one other entity they can possibly be serving.
And his place is where lying, deceitful, antichrist, selfish men and women lowering of God, denying the Word of God, imagining they can pick and choose what to belief and refuse to believe, denying Jesus unfruitful dead branches are hewn off and cast into the lake of fire — for eternity.
Don’t beleive this? To harsh? Judgmental? I strongly urge and suggest you then spend much less time online on various websites and activities and much, much, MUCH more time in earnest prayerful study and meditation within and upon all of God’s Word.
All I will finish here in saying is, anyone who professes with their lips they are a Christian? And also are practicing homosexuals and lesbians? And they support the murder of children through the euphemistic term “abortion?” I do not judge them, will not be there ultimate judge. I can only pray they come out of darkness and are released from the bondage, enslavement of who they serve and come into the Light, the Truth, the Way, and the Life. To salvation and to Jesus. Truly.
For if not? Then Jesus will judge them should they never repent of their sin and their lives lost walking in darkness serving the devil rather than the Lord.
And, oh, what sadness and tragedy that would be.
No, I do not sit or stand in judgment. Judgment is the Lord’s.
But we are clearly instructed to discern wisely. To rightly divide the Word. To obey God our Father and know, to KNOW, and that knowing only comes through genuine repentance, a changed heart and mind of an individual, a renewing, a transformation within the individual. Not merely in joining a church, going to a church, identifying with a denomination, or wearing a fine metal cross on a fine metal chain around ones neck — in which their words, their fruits will possibly hang them in the end…unless…they repent and learn what being born again truly means, what being a genuine disciple of Jesus the Lord truly means…

Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg: “There Are So Many Things in Scripture That Are Inconsistent” (Video)
Reprinted from: Christian News Network
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who identifies as Episcopalian, asserted that “there’s so many things in Scripture that are inconsistent internally, and you’ve got to decide what sense to make of it.”
Buttigieg had been asked what he feels about the contention that so-called “progressive Christians” are disregarding the Bible because of their liberal views on issues such as abortion and homosexuality. He himself is homosexual and believes that women should have the “right” to choose abortion.
“Well, I think for a lot of us — certainly for me — any encounter with Scripture includes some process of sorting out what connects you with God versus what simply tells you about the morals of the times when it was written, right?” he responded.
The South Bend, Indiana mayor pointed to the penal law under the Old Testament, claiming that it required a man to personally kill his sister if she was unfaithful to her husband. Buttigieg said the punishment “found its way” into the Bible because it was considered a just criminal statute at the time.
“For example, the proposition that you should execute your sister by stoning if she commits adultery. I don’t believe that that was right once upon a time, and then the New Testament came and it was gone. I believe it was always wrong, but it was considered right once, and that found its way into Scripture,” he opined.
“And to me that’s not so much cherry-picking as just being serious, because of course there’s so many things in Scripture that are inconsistent internally, and you’ve got to decide what sense to make of it,” Buttigieg continued.
“Jesus speaks so often in hyperbole and parable, in mysterious code, that in my experience, there’s simply no way that a literal understanding of Scripture can fit into the Bible that I find in my hands.”
As he did in September, the presidential candidate alleged that there are “so many parts of the Bible that associate the beginning of life with breath that there’s plenty of Scriptural basis to reach different conclusions about that [and abortion].” He said that it shouldn’t be the government’s job, however, to decide where life begins, no matter one’s view.
“[Republicans] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally. Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently,” Buttigieg stated at one point during a Sept. 6 appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show.
As previously reported, Rhyan Glezman, an evangelical pastor who is also Buttigieg’s “brother-in-law,” has repeatedly spoken out against the Democratic candidate’s views on the Bible and morality.
“Pete, I would really like to know one verse that supports the killing of God’s greatest creation. It’s outlandish to say that the Bible (God’s word) supports the killing of babies at any stage of life,” he Tweeted on Sept. 22.
1 Peter 1:20-21 reads, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation, for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 similarly says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
