Following the election Sean Hannity was interviewed by telephone on Fox News. Hannity was asked what Trump needs to do in order to find a way to work with Congress. Hannity turned the question around and said, “I’d tell Congress that they need to find a way to work with Trump.” The Apostle Paul reminds us that there is a worldly point of view on reconciliation; however, people of faith are to see things differently. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor 5:17-19 NIV).

-----Hannity knows the Lord through the Catholic church. Glenn Beck also knows the Lord, but through the Mormon church. Knowing the Lord is like seeing things through a pair of glasses. Knowing the Lord through the doctrines of a church is like tinting the glasses. And the further that church’s doctrine extends beyond what’s written in God’s Word, the darker the tint, until finally the believer may be struggling to see things through a pair of glasses tinted to nearly opaque.
-----Of course, visual problems come not only through the out-of-scriptural-bounds of church doctrine tinting up people’s glasses. Truth gives each person the spiritual duty from of occasionally cleaning from his glasses the films of his own sweat vapors and the smudges and grime of his own fingerprints. This is the action of humility.
-----Then, seeing how rebellious churches have become in regards to teaching doctrines carried far beyond what’s written, seeing how proud of their personal “right to my own opinion” are the people of today, and seeing how pristine, non-tattered, and completely free of finger grease are truth’s research materials -yes, as in “been hardly used“, I am not in the least bit surprised that even someone who loves the Lord as much as Beck and Hannity can believe things as stupid as a vote cast for McMullin, Johnson, or anyone other than Trump in an election like this is not half a vote for the lying, criminal Clinton, or that Congress better get on Trump’s wagon (the presidency is just one of three equally powerful, SEPARATE branches of government.) Even the great Mark Levin, the constitutional attorney and scholar, completely mishandled significant, factual subtleties that reveal with a very bright light why our Constitution used the specifically different term “natural born citizen” when enumerating the legal criteria for presidential qualification instead of the then and now and always been common “citizen of the United States”. Any intelligence risen past the level of doggone fool understands two terms are different because their meanings are at least subtly different. But when glasses are overly tinted and all smudged up with sweat vapors, peanut butter and jelly, axle grease, nose pickins, and everything else of the hands’ daily life, all important subtleties for knowing the truth are just no longer visible. And even worse, while wearing these glasses working more like blindfolds, careless lips, even Christian lips run around flapping out “Who’s to say what’s true?” -dissing the very concept our Lord Jesus says we must be.
-----Brothers and sisters, don’t buy the tinting our churches love to sell. And for Pete’s sake, wash your hands before touching your glasses. Occasionally clean the sweat vapor off them with the pure and simple Word of Truth, especially after going through dire straights such as this recent election.

Love you all,
