Three years ago a precocious fifteen year old, Caiden Cowger, started his own “Christian Conservative” news and commentary site, The Cowger Nation. He asked me to join him, writing twice a week, growing and expanding his readership. I wrote over two hundred pieces for the Cowger Nation but left abruptly two months ago after the site descended into Trump mania. Before I left the managing editor, and chief Trumpet on site, challenged me to a bet. The bet, for a New York bagel, was that Donald Trump would walk away with the Republican nomination for President and leave Ted Cruz in his dust!
My parents raised me to be cautious about placing bets. However, this one is a sure win, for me! Last night’s Iowa victory was a first big step on the way to renewed blessing from God for our nation, and a cleansing of the evil within the Republican ranks. I am sorry to report that Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Matt Drudge, Ann Coulter, too many at FOX News, Dr. Robert Jefress, Phyliss Shafley, and even Dr. Ben Carson have shown they are not committed to truth and righteousness.
These are amazing times, where the truest content of a man’s character may be revealed. I am sorry to see formerly respected people bowing to power and cooperating with evil to gain a win.
This isn’t just “politics.” What we’re experiencing now is nothing short of full-on spiritual warfare! As a Christ-follower I believe it is my duty to be in this fight. Watching from the sidelines as one “too righteous” to care about politics is not an option. I pray that God permits this nation to return to its founding principles. I am willing to do my part in an effort to help others better understand what those principles were.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
