Caesar’s Coliseum of Political Entertainment


Hope springs eternal with every presidential election, even for the balloters who proclaim they vote for the lesser of two evils.  They also say candidates have a lot in common with used car dealers.  Interestingly, politicians and car dealers seem to fly the biggest national flags for some reason.  You know, the bigger the flag, the more patriotic and honest they are. (Cough.)  Some folk, on the other hand, don’t vote, knowing the candidates are just gladiators in Caesar’s Coliseum of Political Entertainment.  As a matter of fact, Republicans and Democrats may be the two sides of the same coin, and alternate who is going to be the head or the tail.  In the end, though, the country gets who they deserve, which usually isn’t too good.

One of the common traits most candidates have is their delusionary self-confidence in solving all the ills of the nation and world – by their own strength.  Their mantra is, I’m gonna do this, I’m gonna do that; thereby, reeling in the naïve who gulp down the hook, line, and sinker.  This political rhetoric may remind one of the Bible character Lucifer, commonly known today as Satan, after he was cast out of heaven, and is the father of lies.  He had the original “I disease“ which is inherited by his offspring today.  His sons and daughters make, in essence, the same boasts as he did, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”  God’s prescription and cure-all for this malady is to be “brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”  We also know Satan brags he can give the power and glory of all the kingdoms of the world to whomsoever he will if they worship him.  They’ll be the superpower!

And if the winner of the election manifests the symptoms akin to the fallen one, more than likely the yearly State of the Union Address will be an optimistic prophecy of the future, rather than what the state of the union actually is.   Perhaps the State of the Union Address should be changed to, “The Dream State of the Union;” a carrot being held forever before a mindless mule that keeps plowing the fertile fields of taxation for his master.

As some may recall, the country has been publically notified on occasion (even by prominent government officials) of a certain declaration of the Almighty, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  Unfortunately, the number of God’s people may have declined substantially, and now the vacuum is being filled with the wicked likes of Islamic terrorist and other antichrists, who thumb their noses in the face of the only true God and his Son Jesus Christ.

A parting question: Has America turned from the God of the Bible to its own self-destruction?  If so, then, for the love of country, “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  And by the way, I didn’t say it; he said it – the Lord Jesus Christ.   Remember, the truth is in the Bible, or the truth you are trying to avoid.




The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
