      thanks for visiting my Blog: CityofGod.blog. Unfortunatelty I am going to spam your comment. I see your SECT believes in the Word of God. Possibly your Sect dropped John’s Gospel? You know Ch1 Verse 1?. There are over 44 single typed spaced pages that describes Jesus Divinity…..I list them in 1 of my Essays…. /here is a sample: john Ch1
      1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. [4] In him was life, and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it

        You do not seem to see how the apostle John looked at his master and how he wanted to write a book in the trend of the Genesis, this time looking at the beginning of the New World. He speaks about the Word, that what comes about when the voice of God sounds. It was that Eternal unseen Spirit God Who told in the Garden of Eden that He would sent a solution against the curse of death. That man sent is Jesus. God also declared that man of flesh and blood, who was seen by many (who did not fall death), to be His only begotten beloved son. That you do not want to believe those words of the heavenly Father and have yourself adhering to the false doctrine of the trinity, makes you more belonging to a sect than me? I belong to the real followers of Jesus Christ who worshipped not a three-headed god, but like Christ did not pray to himself, but to the God of Israel, I prefer praying to that Only One True God Who is One, like the Bible tells us at several places.

        If you do not want to believe that Jesus is the Way to God and that he really died for the sins of many (whilst God cannot die), like the Bible tells us, is your full right, but that does not make me going to call you a spammer, even when you put such a reaction here instead on the appropriate writing..

        Concerning placing a posting as spam is doing it injustice and putting that person in problems, because than he comes on the spam list. If you do not like what they are saying you do not have to place the writing and you can delete it. But placing something what you do not like under the heading spam, without that person spamming is a horrible act and unjust. Imagine that people would do that to you and you would become listed to the spam list, having all your reaction than also coming under those spam notices, which most people even do not check (like I do not check all what is in my spam list).

        Concerning John 1:1- and other verses you can find enough material to look at on one of my religious websites.
        But please consider if God is always telling the truth and knows everything and compare it with Jesus wondering if he is always telling the truth, not telling lies and as such not sinning, and if he knew everything. Also compare what both persons say about each other.

        (John 1:1-3) “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

        This passage is usually the chief reference on which the pre-existence and deity of Christ are argued.

        You seem to forget that modern English and ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek do not have identical rules of grammar and style, translators must often add words for the sake of clarity. As such we can find the added indefinite and definite articles and as such the words “a” and “the”.

        Therefore we always should see everything in context. You probably only know the Jehovah’s Witnesses translation “In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.” (NWT) and think it to be wrong but it is a very correct translation of the manuscript which can be found similarly translated in other versions:

        “The Word was in the beginning, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a God.” (The New Testament in An Improved Version)

        “In the beginning existed the Logos, and the Logos was with God, and the Logos was a god.” (The Monotessaron)

        “In a beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and a god was the Word.” (Emphatic Diaglott – interlineary side)

        I also want to remind you that Christ was not literally the Word. He was the word “made flesh”. (John 1:14). The Greek word “logos” translated “Word” expresses the divine intention, mind, or purpose.1 Young defines “logos” as “a word, speech, matter, reason.”2 In the a.v. “logos” is translated by more than 20 different English words and is used for utterances of men (e.g., #Jo 17:20) as well as those of God (John 5:38).

        The Word is a matter of “speaking”?. John looks now at the beginning of the New Word in which Christ Jesus is the First Born. In the ancient world god spoke and it came into being. It is in that way John sees the speaking of God again. In the Garden of Eden spoke God to the first man and promised them a solution against the curse of death. That solution for John has now come into the flesh and as such the Word of God (God His speaking or God His promise) came into the flesh or became a reality.

        “In the beginning was the Word  …  all things were made by him.”3 “logos” does not in itself denote personality. It is personified by the masculine gender in the a.v., The Diaglott avoids confusion by translating the pronouns in the neuter-“through it every thing was done.”4 An Old Testament parallel to the personification of logos is the personification of wisdom: “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.” (Proverbs 8:22, 23). In this passage, wisdom is personified as a woman. (Proverbs 8:1, 2).

        “All things were made by him”-John is apparently alluding to the creation recorded in Genesis. God spoke, and it was done (e.g. “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” (#Ge 1:3). Notice another allusion- #Jo 1:7,8). But this creation was not accompanied by Christ, but by the “logos” of God. This is indicated by several passages:

        a. “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” “For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.” (#Ps 33:6,9). See also #Ps 107:20; 147:15,18,19; Isa 55:11).

        b. ”  …  by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water  …  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” (#2Pe 3:5, 7).

        c. See also (#Heb 11:3) cf. (#Jer 10:12, 13).5

        It is a pity you do not believe God His Own Words. Look at what happened <hen Jesus was baptised and there too was there the Voice of God and God Spoke, so thta His Word resounded.

        “21 Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.  } (Lu 3:21-22 ASV)

        “ and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, {1 } This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. {1) Or This is my Son; my beloved in whom I am well pleased. See Mt 12:18 } (Mt 3:17 ASV)

        “ And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him: And a voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.” (Mr 1:10-11 ASV)

        “ And John bare witness, saying, I have beheld the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven; and it abode upon him.” (Joh 1:32 ASV)

        “ For he {1 } received from God the Father honor and glory, when there was borne such a voice to him by the Majestic Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: {1) Gr having received } (2Pe 1:17 ASV)

        You further seem to ignore

        “18 {1 } Behold, my {2 } servant whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, And he shall declare judgment to the {3 } Gentiles. {1) Isa 42:1 ff 2) See marginal note on Ac 3:13. 3) See marginal note on Mt 4:15 }19 He shall not strive, nor cry aloud; Neither shall any one hear his voice in the streets. 20 A bruised reed shall he not break, And smoking flax shall he not quench, Till he send forth judgment unto victory. 21 And in his name shall the {1 } Gentiles hope. {1) See marginal note on Mt 4:15 } (Mt 12:18-21 ASV)

        “ The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his {1 } Servant Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he had determined to release him. {1) Or Child; See Mt 12:18; Isa 42:1; 52:13; 53:11 } (Ac 3:13 ASV)

        “ and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, {1 } This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. {1) Or This is my Son; my beloved in whom I am well pleased. See Mt 12:18 } (Mt 3:17 ASV)

        “ While he was yet speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” (Mt 17:5 ASV)

        Also forgetting that Jesus was seen by many, whilst God can not be seen by man and is declared to be an eternal Spirit God who knows everything and can do everything but can not be tempted and man can do God nothing. Though Jesus was tempted more than once and got even killed by man, and at the end of his life still did not know a lot of things, even not when he would return. In case Jesus would be the all-knowing God than Jesus would have lied though Scriptures tells us that God does not tell lies. So why do you not believe the words of Jesus when he declares his heavenly Father to be greater than him?

        “27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. 28 ¶ Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe. 30 I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world cometh: and he hath nothing {1 } in me; {1) Or in me. But that…I do, arise etc }31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (Joh 14:27-31 ASV)

        “17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work. 18 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will. 22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that {1 } hear shall live. {1) Or hearken }26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have {1 } done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. {1) Or practised }30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 31 ¶ If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth. 34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved. 35 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. 36 But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (Joh 5:17-36 ASV)

        “ Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (Joh 8:42 ASV)

        I sincerely hope one day you shall come to believe the Words of God like they are given in the Bible and that you shall come to believe in the Only One Eternal Spirit God that no man can see.

        “ And he said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” (Ex 33:20 ASV)

        “ See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having.” (Lu 24:39 ASV)

        “ {1 } God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. {1) Or God is spirit } (Joh 4:24 ASV)

        “ Concerning therefore the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no God but one.” (1Co 8:4 ASV)

        “ Hear, O Israel: {1 } Jehovah our God is one Jehovah: {1) Or Jehovah our God, Jehovah is one; Or Jehovah is our God, Jehovah is one; Or Jehovah is our God, Jehovah alone } (De 6:4 ASV)

        “ See now that I, even I, am he, And there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; And there is none that can deliver out of my hand.” (De 32:39 ASV)

        “ one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.” (Eph 4:6 ASV)

        I also shall pray you shall come to recognise Jesus is the sent one from God and shall accept as your saviour and the way to God

        “ but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,” (Ga 4:4 ASV)

        “ Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief:” (1Ti 1:15 ASV)

        “ Wherefore also he is able to save {1 } to the uttermost them that draw near unto God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. {1) Gr completely } (Heb 7:25 ASV)

        “ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but {1 } by me. {1) Or through } (Joh 14:6 ASV)

        “ I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture.” (Joh 10:9 ASV)

        “ through whom also we have had our access {1 } by faith into this grace wherein we stand; and {2 } we {3 } rejoice in hope of the glory of God. {1) Some ancient authorities omit by faith 2) Or let us rejoice 3) Gr glory; Ro 5:11; Heb 3:6 } (Ro 5:2 ASV)

        “ for through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father.” (Eph 2:18 ASV)

        “ by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” (Heb 10:20 ASV)

      Having been raised a Conservative or Old Roman Catholic (with the different services on Sunday and the Saturday rosary) I recognise something in your story of Lucien J. LeSage, Jr. and his change of denomination. You though came into a trinitarian Baptist community. I came onto the non-trinitarian Baptists who like the Holy Scriptures present us the Word of God, believe only in that Word of God , who is only the One Creator we have to worship.
      After the Baptist churches in Europe started changing to the American Baptist Union Churches I like many others did have to make a decision about faith, either going whit the new trend of the trinitarist church or changing denomination again staying faithful to the Word of God which demand we only keep to One God and not maker or pray for any pictures of God.
      In the protestant churches all over Europe we saw the pictures and statues of holy figures, Christ and even whom they say is God, being brought in to the church-building and houses of the believers. In some places it is like the iconoclastic fury did not happen in the 16th century.

      By taking Jesus as god it is a pity you are minimalising the death of Christ, because God is an eternal Spirit who can not die, but according to the New Testament and civic documents the Jew Jeshua from Nazareth, know as Jesus Christ, really was put to death on a stake, was buried and resurrected on the third day he was in the underground or hell (sheol= grave, sepulchre).

      By the taking out of the dead we got an example of what can happen to us as well. Jesus, who was lower than angels (though God is the Most High of all) was made higher by his Father and allowed to sit next to Him (not on His chair as the God) to become a mediator between God and men.

      I do hope you shall once come to see the importance of that mediatorship and the value of Jesus his kingship here on earth, before he shall hand over the Kingdom back to his Father.

    Thanks, Marcus,
    When Jesus Gave up the Ghost on the Cross, it was His Soul that had been Made an Offering for sin, returning to God ( as our soul will return to Him when it is requested ).

    This Doctrine:
    THE PROOF OF THE UNITY OF THE DIVINE ESSENCE:
    that THERE IS BUT ONE DIVINE TRIUNE GODHEAD,
    is THE Doctrine of a Trinity of Persons.
    God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit,
    in the Unity of the Divine Essence is of pure revelation.
    Not from a man or a ‘church’, but from God’s Word.
    The ‘idea’ that Jesus died, while God is a Spirit and can’t die, is wonderful.
    Leaving it there and building a ‘teaching’ apart from God’s Word is not.
    Why?
    The Spirit doesn’t die with the death of the body.
    Isn’t that a little simplistic ?
    Jesus’ Spirit never died.
    That there is a God, and that there is but one God,
    Who is a Being that Possesses of all Divine Perfections,
    may be known by the light of nature:

    But the teaching and understanding
    that there is a Trinity of Persons in the Godhead, Who are Distinct,
    and Not divided from Each Other,
    is what natural reason could never have discovered.

    The books of the Old and New Testament
    contain the “pure word of prophecy”.

    We “do well if we take hold of them, as to a light that shines in a dark place”.
    This “pure word of prophecy”, as “a light that shines in a dark place”
    is our guide in all mysterious doctrines
    and allow ourselves to RECEIVE the REVEALED WORD of GOD,
    on the subject.

    What would GOD have us to understand ?

    WHAT DOES GOD HAVE for YOU ?

    If we leave God’s Revealed Words on any subject
    and are led and governed by the false reasoning of our carnal minds,
    or reasoning of others, some man-made “religion”,
    or even our “Study Bible’s”comments and footnotes,
    it is no wonder we run ourselves into mazes,
    and their find it difficult to get clear minded
    and sober toward our reverence and worship
    of Almighty God.

    “To the law and to the testimony,
    if any speak not according to this word,
    it is because there is no light in them”.( Isaiah 8:20)

    So, there you have it.

    Most “Religion” was just done away with,
    By God, HIMSELF.

    Certainly, we know this should make
    most of the Craigslist Religion forum pack it in.

    And ‘the like’.

    Since this doctrine is revealed in scripture,
    it ought to be an article of our faith;

    Although it may contain some difficulties,
    which we cannot account for,
    however, what do we expect
    when we have God explaining Himself to us ?

    WE were ALL Born sinners.

    Which, IF NOTHING ELSE Means:
    WE…>>>…ARE…>>>…NOT…>>>…GOD…!!!

    And yet this is a ‘teaching’ or ‘doctrine’ of great importance.

    Evidence, of the importance of THE PROOF OF THE UNITY OF THE DIVINE ESSENCE:
    THERE IS BUT ONE DIVINE TRIUNE GODHEAD.
    may easily be given by the fact of the great opposition
    which Satan has made against it.

    Satan has, indeed, used his recourse in many tactics, stratagems,
    wiles, and cunning devises to support his own interest,
    and hurt the interest of Christ.

    But there are two ways more especially, which Satan has taken for this purpose:

    One is, to attempt to depreciate the Divine Being
    ( in the carnal minds of individuals )
    in One or Other of the Three Glorious Persons
    wherein the teaching of the Divine Godhead subsists,
    by defaming God the Father, God the Son, or God the Holy Spirit
    in Their Characters or Their Offices.

    And the other to attempt to depreciate the Divine Being
    ( in the carnal minds of individuals ),by Satan,
    is to magnify and exalt the reason of man, man’s intellectual powers,
    and the freedom of a man’s will, in spiritual and divine things.

    So, Satan’s first tactic mentioned
    in attempting to ‘belittle’ GOD
    Satan employs all his strength and cunning,
    either to destroy or make confused and unclear
    the proper Deity of the Son and Spirit, within the Divine Godhead
    and to bring their respective Character and Deity of the Son and Spirit,
    the Divine Offices of the Eternal Son and Holy Spirit
    and God the Son’s Divine Works
    and those of the Holy Spirit’s Divine Works into contempt;
    OR, SATAN introduces a total confusion into the Sacred Trinity,
    by denying a distinction of Persons in the Godhead.

    Then, in SATAN’s second tactic to attempt the defamation
    Of man’s understanding of the One and Only True and Living Triune Godhead
    is by setting up the thinking and reasoning
    inside the sin cursed minds of men,
    so men will believe that they are endowed with ‘special’ powers
    and abilities to convert themselves to something pleasing to God,
    and to do everything that is spiritually good and acceptable to God,
    and therefore ‘man can decide his own present or future happiness.

    This is Satan’s design to throw a blinding veil
    over the Glories of Eternally Divine Giving Grace,
    and render the Merits and Value of Jesus Christ,
    and the Operations of the Holy Spirit, unnecessary.
    Biblically speaking, however,
    the Eternal Divine Godhead has Revealed to mankind
    that this entire scheme of Satan is properly called Antichrist.
    God tells us, “he is Antichrist that denies the Father.”
    “Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ?
    He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.”
    I John 2:22
    Plain ?

    The one, also, who says ( whether it is Satan saying it or his servant ),
    That the Father is the Son, and the Son is the Father,
    as if there is no sense in which they are distinguished
    and allows of no distinction between Them,
    confounds them both;
    and by confounding them Both,
    tacitly denies that there is Either.

    Don’t do that.

    By using God’s Words He has REVEALED to mankind

    REVELATIONS of GOD:
    I. To to prove the Unity of the Divine Essence, or that there is but one God.
    II. That there is a Plurality of Three Persons;
    God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, in the Godhead.
    III. That this Plurality is neither more nor fewer than Three;
    Who are God the Eternal Father, God the Eternal Son, Jesus the Word,
    and the God the Eternal Holy Ghost.
    And, IV. We will consider the several Characters, the Proper Deity, and Distinct Personality of each of these Three Divine Persons.

  7. Hi!
    This is Saswata here for The Mystic Sandbox.
    If I recall correctly, I think you wanted me to guest write. I love the idea.
    I’d like to know more on the same.

    Regards.

      Sjalom, nice to hear from you and having you remembering my request.

      I do strongly believe people can influence each other and by pulling a chain of positivism could bring something positive going in this world.
      It’s a proven fact that an attitude of positivism and gratitude contributes to our well-being. In this world where much more thought is going on about materialism, I would love to see more impulses going around getting other people to bring to think more about better spiritual values and the so necessary love for our neighbours and environment.
      Many are looking for life-answers and for solutions for their many problems. In the lifestyle magazine Stepping Toes I want to offer ways of making an easier and better living. On From Guestwriters I would love to bring several writers together who bear in them that positivism that is so needed in this egocentric world. I would love to find several articles and poems and perhaps also some short-stories, published that can inspire people to come to a positive attitude and to have them thinking about the beauties in this world. Photographs, illustrations and texts that can contribute to have a nice view of what is going on or moving around in this world would be welcome.

      It would be nice to have different writers on From guestwriters, who bring different ideas about life matters, ways to come at ease, share their ideas how to relax and to make stronger minds and personalities.

      Whilst on Stepping Toes the main point of view would be form a non-trinitarian Christian view with a concentration on the reason why and how to come to a better living, on From guestwriters want to show the importance of a multiracial world with different religions that when there is understanding and knowledge of the other people can live together in peace. In order to bring such understanding it would be nice also to have people of different religions letting others to have a better insight in it and showing others that though people might think differently they still can be able to live in peace with eachother and perhaps on several points can have more similar ideas than they originally would think.
      The simple act of walking is wonderful. Stop by a rehabilitation center and you’ll see someone who is unable to move around like they use to.

      The ‘guestwriters’ as such could present the readers with all sorts interesting reading material, which they think more people should get to know or should find to read. As such you may write your own articles about different subjects you think could be interesting for others as well, concerning the included categories. (In case I would have missed an interesting category, you think I have missed, you may say so, that I can think about it and ad it.) Any article you come across your web-surfing, and you think would be interesting for others as well, in case it can be reblogged, you are also welcome to reblog on From Guestwriters, so that people can find in it a place where they can find a selection of interesting material. That way, having different co-authors and searchers on the net, we could build up a sort of free Readers-digest.

      Most interesting when you publish an article would be when you also ad related articles or give the reader some links to continue their reading. Those links may be to your own articles and to other material you could find on the net. Some quotes from those article could always get our readers to have a look at the articles. (We noticed that links with quotes get better results for people looking further than placing only the link. – though I agree I had already negative reactions from bloggers because I placed such quotes > in such case I leave them out, and like those who do not backlink I not link any more to them either.) By bringing other bloggers also to the attention of our readers, we can help them to make their own selection, being able to find some writers to their liking. Lots of people do not have enough time to scam the internet for good articles, so it would be nice if we could make a good selection so that they are happy to stay with us and to follow the presented tracks to get more reading on the subjects they are interested more.

      It also would be lovely when we could find some writers who make a review of interesting books, theatre productions, films, and television productions, or present some good poets, lyricist, a.o. writers.

      Perhaps it may interest you to share with us some of your poems and other writings.

    I found your latest post very interesting. 2016 was a disheartening year to watch on the news. It looks to me as if evil has been growing and becoming widespread; or it was there, but it is now coming into the light where everyone can see it.

    I think the impression other countries have of the United States is that it is a land full of rich people, or people who don’t suffer like in other countries. But the reason, I believe, Donald Trump was elected was because people who, had lost their jobs because corporations moved overseas, were fed up with regular Republicans and Democrats. No matter who was governing, the poor were never helped.

    The working poor in the U.S. have a very hard time paying rent and if they get sick, most can’t afford to pay a doctor or have insurance. Obamacare is good for those who can’t work, but for those who do it costs a lot of money. What do you pay? The medical insurance or the utility bill?

    My sister became ill (Gulf War Syndrome and autoimmune disease) and had to quit her job at NASA. She eventually became homeless. She came to live with us but her allergies in our part of the country made her worse than ever so she moved down to Washington, State. It is one of the few places in the U.S. that has almost no pollen.

    She lived in her van in campgrounds. She has met many homeless people over the last 3 years. More and more come. Most have an illness and cannot work. There is no welfare for sick people unless you have children. So, people get their food from churches. You cannot get food stamps if you don’t have an address.

    Anyway, this is a long way of saying how poverty is huge in the States. The poor were hoping Trump could help them get good-paying jobs again.

    The other people who voted for him in a huge bloc were Christians. They finally saw their chance to get a Conservative on the Supreme Court who would overturn abortion laws and ban it completely. They know Trump is an awful person, but they have joined with the Devil to do the work of the Lord. They also hate the “gay laws” where men were allowed to come into women’s bathrooms if they said the were transgenders. They hate gay marriage and want that overturned.
