Minnesota Undercover – Part Three

Tim D. McConnaughy Jr.

 

 

Jacob assured me he would be glad to help should the need arise.

“Thank you.” I told him feeling grateful for his help.

I still had questions I wanted to ask her. Did she have family in the area? Where was she headed to before we were forced to evacuate the airport? And none of us knew her name.

Jacob interrupted my thoughts. “So you’re a Christian?” he said directing his question to me. I sensed an air of disappointment in his voice.

“Yes I am,” I said. “But I need to clarify the word Christian because it means different things to different people.”

I wanted to clarify what I meant in detail but still wondered what he meant by saying he was more Jewish so I decided to ask.  “I am curious about what you meant when you said you were more Jewish? More Jewish than what?”

Jacob seemed hesitant to answer. “Um, that’s a good question…..” he paused for a moment, then continued. “I believe in God from the Torah, but there are things in the Bible I don’t believe.” he said.

“Like what?” I quickly responded.

Traffic had been steadily crawling on the interstate for some time now, but at least we were moving—even if it was only about fifteen miles per hour.

Jacob continued. “Well, like the Messiah—Yeshua as mentioned in the New Testament. I don’t believe He has come yet despite what you probably believe.” he said. “The Jesus mentioned in the Bible makes outrageous claims about His deity which I just don’t see as possible. There are other things I don’t know but we can discuss them if we have time.”

Russell quickly spoke up. “Well to me all the religions are a load of bunk.” He said sounding irritated at the direction of the conversation. “Especially when they teach that if you’re not a follower of them you must be killed.”

Why Everyone Should Support Ted Cruz for President


Ted Cruz is not a perfect human being (only Jesus is) but I believe Mr. Cruz is the best choice for President right now in 2016.   I cannot vote for him in the party primary election being from California but maybe you can and if so, should be voting for Mr. Cruz.

Godly Reverence

Mr. Cruz is man who operates in the fear of God and knows that without God giving him breath and life he can do nothing.  In light of the recent Brussels attack, we need men and women who fear and live in reverence of Almighty God of the Bible.    When people don’t fear God (or pretend He doesn’t exist and worship other gods) they will do anything even if it is what God hates or calls evil.

Compassionate and Caring but Hates Evil

I do not know Mr. Cruz personally but as a fellow person who seeks to follow Jesus Christ, I know he is a man of integrity, honesty and one who seeks to stand up for the truly down-trodden, persecuted, and victimized.   Mr. Cruz like the rest of us is not perfect or sinless because only Jesus was both, but like Jesus, I believe Mr. Cruz hates what is evil and will expose it as far as is humanly possible with God’s help.

More Reasons I Support Ted Cruz (and why you should too)

Of course, there are more reasons to support Ted Cruz for President but I only wanted to mention a few here.    For example, besides his desire to fight for this country and protect it from bad guys,  he truly cares and supports our veterans and those serving in the Armed Forces to protect our freedom.  He’s pro-life, pro second Amendment, anti-establishment, a true conservative,  pro Biblical marriage,  knows who hates us and wants us destroyed, supports Israel,  is not Obama, is not Hillary, is not Bernie,  knows the difference between right and wrong according to God’s standard, will stand up for what is right according to God’s standard and not human standards,  will fight against what is wrong according to God’s standard,  believes and trusts in our Creator God,  prays for guidance that comes from God,  knows how and where life began, and did I mention he supports Israel despite growing world antisemitism from countries like Iran that state Israel should not exist.     Let us pray and support Ted Cruz because we need true men and women of God who are able to expose what is evil and proclaim what is true.
