“Mario, you are more politician than evangelist”, said the preacher. So, I asked him, “Why aren’t you speaking out against the policies that are destroying our nation’s morals? He said, “I would lose people in my church.” “In other words” I said, “you would lose votes.” You’re the politician not me.
Notable Christian leaders, specifically Max Lucado, have stated that they did not speak out against Obama but have now chosen to speak out against Trump. Lucado found Trump to be rude and again, feels his immigration policy is anti-Christian.
It makes zero sense. Obama was loading our children with debt. Obama was the most hostile president to the Bible in history. Obama gave us same sex marriage and fought to retain late term abortion. Obama opened the Pandora’s Box of political correctness that has the racists calling everyone else racist, and the fascists calling everyone else fascists. Obama is why our universities are a sick joke of intellectual dishonesty. Why are you vocal now and you never said a word to stop Obama?
The leader they gave a pass to was trying to drive the church underground, and the one we have now is the first president to address the March for Life and oppose the hideous Johnson Amendment that took away the free speech of pastors. Trump is fighting to give you a pulpit where you can speak truth without the IRS shutting you down. You oppose him now and were mum on Obama?
The most devastating charge against these pastors is this: they actively told their people not to vote for Trump. Had they been successful—Hillary would be president today.
Now, dear pastors, you have moved on to attacking Trump’s immigration policies. You don’t want a wall; you believe Jesus taught open borders. That means that you have swallowed the Kool Aid of the left.
You are siding with sanctuary cities. You are allowing a system that protects killers and punishes the American worker. You are siding against your own congregation. You are blatantly contradicting yourselves.
You once hid behind a bad exegesis of Romans 13 to justify your silence against bad government. When you finally grew a conscience and realized civil disobedience is scriptural you waste it on the wrong argument.
Illegals have killed and they will kill again. Democrats only want them here because they believe they’ll vote leftist. Ask God if you are not pawns in their game.
Is it unchristian to secure the borders? Let’s ask Jesus. “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.” –Matthew 24:43
I had a friend yell at me that Christians should stay out of politics. My reply to her was, ” that is the reason America is in the mess it is in.”
We must speak truth, even if it means losing “votes.”
Mario keep speaking truth !!!
Christians should defiantly be in politics!!!!!! ask the founding fathers!
Mario Murillo, you couldn’t be more correct if you tried! Recently when I heard of some 15 Pastors who were taking a stand against PR-Trump’s policy for immigration reform, I read it was Max Lucado and Beth Moore again in the forefront. Recently I was instructed by Holy Spirit to speak to Christians who claim they’re Democratic voters on my website Vimeo ministry. Because as I’ve understood it in The Spirit of Holy Father God, a person cannot be on 2 sides of this moral fence, you simply cannot be in favor of the current principles and policies of the 2018 Democratic party and be a true Christian!
To Kim Denner, I would say bless your heart, stick to your ability to speak the truth to your friends…my husband & I lost practically all real valid contact with our family members, due to our stand for Conservative views and values as well as proclaiming Christ The King as our hearts desire.
Thanks for your comments…I have posted many times this Question; Can someone please help me understand the Definition of a Christian Democrat? I have received 0 responses to this Question..
Awesome response. But it is sad to know that so many who “proclaim” the Gospel, “disclaim” a President, as imperfect as any of us, who will STAND for Godly morals and God’s ways! Thank you! I am appreciative of Mario Murillo for his bold stand. Although, as CHRISTIAN’S, we should ALL take a bold stand for Christ! The leftists are not intimidated to speak their “mind”, so why should we as people who KNOW the truth be ASHAMED to stand on the side that is choosing a Biblical answer for this Nation!!
So agreed !
Amen! TRUTH during a time were fear of speaking up for what s right is now wrong…
Amen ! The church should have been speaking out against corruption and ungodlines a long time ago instead of letting the corrupt heathens take over so we don’t offend anybody. Wake up Church and push back the darkness. The church has been given all power and authority in the earth, given dominion over the earth and the fullness there of. Why is the church allowing darkness to prevail ? Jesus is coming back for a victorious Church, let’s be victorious.
Thank you for your courageous and clear teaching
God did not give us a spirit of fear. This is who we are “Greatly blessed, highly favored, imperfect,but a forgiven child of God” Jesus is our Lord an Saviour. Our weapon is “PRAYER”. Pray for President Trump his family an all that support him. Pray also for Netanyahu his family an all that support him. Brothers an Sisters we know what PRAYING is, an general quarters sounded some time ago. May God Bless all my Brothers an Sisters out there.
You are so on target Mario. I will not listen to these religious leaders who kept their mouths shut when Obama was taking away our freedom from us and future generations and now they speak up against Trump. Sickening! I’m a Christian but I will watch and pray as Jesus said. By their fruits we know them.
Keep preaching the truth Mario!
Sent from my iPhone
So true!!! Thank you brother Mario!
Thank you for this post filled with Truth. It continues to amaze me the veil that is over the eyes of many in the church in America today. There is a parable that fits: the 5 virgins who had no lamp oil when it was needed. Sadly this is where it seems many are stalled today, without lamp oil to see.
I wonder why Pelosi chose to have a wall built around her mansion?
Thanks Mario,keep teaching the truth,it sets us free. Shine the light on the policies of those who allow evil to continue. Which will we choose. The right way,the left way,,,or Gods way!!
I am so glad you posted this Mario! Just another reason why God is in control and weeding out the sincere Christians from the fake ones. I often wondered why a lot of influential pastors would never talk about certain subjects that are just so morally important for people, especially our youth who are getting indoctrinated with such garbage and lies. But I know it’s because they’re too afraid of losing their mega audiences and mega money. It’s just really sad because by keeping silent, they will lose so much more in the end. That’s one of the reasons I find your posts so refreshing. Finally a pastor who’s not afraid to stand up for the true Gospel of Jesus!
I pray for more like you!
Nailed it. Max Lucado is a SHILL!!!
Mario, I live in Canada but I follow what is going on in America as your country is a huge influence on ours – ours right now could use “a Donald Trump”. Lance Wallnau recommended following you so I have. I also listen to Mark Taylor who
prophecied about Donald Trump becoming President long before it ever happened. He has been talking about Christian leaders opposing Donald Trump & how it is not a good thing. I don’t understand the Christians who speak out against him & better yet, I do not understand the Christians who exhort Obama. Obama sent his people to Canada to make sure that Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister (known fact) which is exactly what happened. He is a puppet for
Obama as our nation is heading the same direction yours was – but for God. If we could get unity among Christians we could conquer anything! I find it so disturbing what so called Christians do or don’t do. Thank you for standing & speaking truth. We need more bold & courageous like you! Praying for total healing (only an attack from the enemy as he doesn’t like what you are doing) &
I agree. As a Canadian Christian living in Alabama I am distressed at what is happening in Canada.
To our friends in Canada.
I believe that what is happening here in the U.S. will happen in Canada.
I have spent a lot of time in B.C. and found a smaller core of Believers than here but no less dedicated.
It’s through His Believers that the movement will be birthed to change your nation for Children.
it’s time for the real Church to stand up and be the mighty men and women God called us to be, Mighty warrior’s who stand up for what’s right, we allowed all this mess, God gave us power and authority, and he gave us weapon’s and a mouth quoting the word is one of them, our silence allowed this mess going on right now, and only our standing up for God and what right will change it, That man has done more for God and Christian’s than any President I remember or read about, we need to do a soul search and find out who’s side we are on, because some are under cover for the enemy.
Amen..God showed me a few years ago that His Church was a Sleeping Giant that needed to Wake Up and Become the Head and not the Tail any Longer…The Church needs to Wake Up, Find Her Voice, and Start being a Participator and no longer a Spectator in #MAGA…
Do not know where its at but I read in our Bible that a Nation without walls is no nation at all….so get er done . I have been praying for you Mario.
Ezekiel 38:11 “And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither walls nor gates,”
Proverbs 25:28 “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”
I find Left wing Christians live by the following distorted values which they will condemn you for ever questioning:
– they equate compassion entirely with welfare from the state where as in a rich society a job opportunity for the able-bodied legal citizen is the most loving, liberating option you can provide.
– if you object to paying more and more taxes then you are greedy but they can’t see that people wanting a bigger slice of the money they DIDN’T earn is greed on steroids
– They will quote you ad nauseum about compassion for the downtrodden (and I believe in a welfare safety net for people who have no other option) but miss that bit in Thessalonians: “If any would not work, neither should he eat”.
– They believe all people with money have ripped off others to earn it (envy) or at least the ones they don’t know.
– Unequal outcomes of income or power are evidence in themselves of unequal opportunities and oppression (not different choices which can sometimes be the case)
– Minorities and the poor are always the oppressed never the oppressor (this is cultural marxism not Christianity)
Joe Tenorio “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!” REV 3:16 one application of this verse I was told some years ago. it went like this ” Would have you fighting for ME, or Against ME. BUT you who are half in the fight and half out of the fight are good to no side in this war. “…. Elijah’s Challenge is and should be the Battle cry for all Christians. 1Kings 18:15-24 Elijah approached the people and said, “How long will you not decide between two choices?” “If the Lord is the true God, follow him, but if Baal is the true God, follow him!” But the people said nothing. the challenge was this : “You prophets of Baal, pray to your god, and I will pray to the Lord. The god who answers by setting fire to his wood is the true God.” what do we have to fear ?
So refreshing to hear the truth with boldness from the pulpit. God is on the side of truth. They call Trump a liar but cannot recall what he lied about. I repost everything you write. God bless and keep you
I agree with you . If we are living here then whatever goes in this country we have to respond to it . After all we are not told , be passive and let the ungodly run the nation . And one thing else , the Lord would not have told us go to all nation and preach the gospel . He would sed do not worry I bring the nation to you to preach to . Those brothers , are acting out sense being kind , but they should understand , this not kindness , this pure ignorency .
Thank you for taking a stand against the Evangelicals who do not support our President. One verse I like to use is: Acts 17:26 New King James Version (NKJV)
26 And He has made from one blood[a] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
Keep up the good work. I am so glad we finally have a President who stands up for Christians and is making necessary changes to get this country back on the right track. God bless you.
What is happening in societies around this world is not immigration. It is an invasion with the intent to populate, gain political control, establish religious control, and then radically re-educate and remake these nations. The lukewarm, spiritually deaf and dumb “church” are like sheep without shepherds. God’s intercessors who still know Holy Ghost and fire had best pray without ceasing for revival in America, beginning in the pulpit.
You are Absolutely correct..The Enemy has come into our Camps (Church) and has put the church to sleep. It’s Focus for the most Part is to be People Pleasers, and not God Pleasers..The message from the Pulpit is be careful not to offend and be politically correct…how sad….Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
Its impossible to be a democrat and christian Demys are against everything God is for.
THANK YOU PAULA..I HAVE POSTED THIS QUESTION MANY TIMES ON FACEBOOK AND YOU ARE THE FIRST TO CORRECTLY RESPOND…BLESSINGS.
Thank you for taking a stand!
Reblogged this on free73735 and commented:
So very glad to read this article and see the truth be spoken!
Mario, you have spoken the truth to those pastors. As I ponder their motivation in supporting those clearly hostile to the Church, and condemning those clearly in support of the Church, one phrase comes to mind: Titus 1:16
Awesome word! I stand with you!!
Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
Lucifer is at work to destroy our churches and country. Some/many church leaders would render Christ unto a Caesar of the NWO Babylon.
Thank you Mario I am running for Senate in Oklahoma and am floored by how many people in the church just don’t see it. They think they are more Holy by not getting involved in politics. We are to be the salt of the earth. Salt keeps stuff from decaying. When Christians pulled out of the political realm thinking them self to spiritual is it any wonder the decay in politics we saw over the last Presidents two terms!
Praying for you to win in OK!
Isaiah 9:6 (KJV): For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. The Church has once again fallen for the Deception..The Separation of Church & State many years ago put a Fear over the Church and caused them to retreat into the Four walls and just play Church..God showed me years ago that his Church had become a Sleeping Giant that needed to Wake Up and Become the Head & Not the Tail..The Church needs to Find Her Voice and Walk in All Authority and Power given to it be make a Difference and Be the Difference…amen.
Hello Awesome General and Ambassador to the Kingdom of Heaven Here On Earth..Thank You For Your Faithfulness, Boldness Among Our Sleeping Giant (The Church)..We are in the Midst of One of the Greatest Times in History..Alignment and Revival will Continue to Manifest as the Battle of Good vs. Evil continues on the Chess Board of Life. Thank You for Your Relentless Pursuit to Wake Up the Church that Continues to be more of a People Pleaser Than a GOD PLEASER..Just Like God gave Word through the Prophet to Jehu to Clean House, Drain The Swamp, we must have the Same Passion to complete the mission at hand..amen.
Isaiah 9:6, And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. ASV. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
So Many, Even in the Church ran for cover when Johnson Muzzled the Church at the Pulpit..What a Deception the Church fell for..Ran for cover and hid in the Four Walls, then allowed Man to become the Head and the Church the Tail..”The Government Shall Rest On His Shoulders” Hellooooo Church…Wake Up..The Church and Government are to Work Together, not be separated..The Enemy has cause this major Separation and Deception..It has Crippled and Stymied the Function and Effectiveness of God’s Church in Our Nation…Let Us Be Bold and Fearless in Proclaiming The Truth and Deception that is Taking Place…Our Commander In Chief’s Assignment in the Midst of Much Prosecution is Just the Tip of the Iceberg of Things to Come…amen..
Ps Mario, once again, thank you thank you thank you for boldness in calling out for making a political stand with godly wisdom. Praying for you and for the USA!
I always knew i was going to hear a ‘bold truth’ when Paul and Jan had you preach on TBN….I know you are paying a price for ‘telling it’….Thank you for opening your mouth wide and letting God fill it!!! Love, respect and prayers, dear Brother!!!
Halleluuujaaaah Great Powerful writings Brother. ????♩??Do NOT ever stop to tell the truth it is very Powerful. Thanx Brother. Blessings in JESUS @ Psalm 100 Shalom and Victory forever in JESUS @Rom.8.31 & 27
You know Mario that I was lukewarm on Trump, I voted for him of course because the alternative was unthinkable. I was wrong and you were right to enthusiastically endorse him. He makes funny tweets..what of it? Look at the conservative judges nominated, not to mention the Supreme court judge. Stands unashamedly pro-life. Over and over he does the right thing while the media loses their minds over his tweets. I’m beginning to think he’s crazy…crazy like a fox.
Some……or quite probably MANY who have kept silent regarding the last administration but are feverishly condemning this one, are forgetting, INCREDIBLY, and no one thus far has made ANY reference to the events that took place in history for the United States of America to even EXIST!!! I take GREAT OFFENSE to this fact that none have spoken of the millions of lives sacrificed, risking literally EVERYTHING to cross an ocean in order to worship God freely. The very fact that we are here is testament to those who’s courage, vision and calling were to bring about and establish the greatest country on earth. Only now to squander their freedom, “dumb-down” and dilute God’s word to justify their cowardice and weak, if not all but dead resolve to stand against tyranny, true fascism, idolatry, corruption, greed and iron-fist control on a people is an APPALLING and UNACCEPTABLE action and should NEVER be tolerated EVER AGAIN!!! It was tolerated and even justified in Europe when the Jews and countless others were mercilessly persecuted and ultimately exterminated in death camps like Dacau and Auschwitz. It’s like a cancer that starts out benign but over time and through blinders of ignorance and failure to extract it, it becomes, for lack of a better description, THE KRAKEN, THE TROJAN HORSE…….THE BLACK PLAGUE which destroys so many!
“Martin Niemöller”, a prominent Protestant pastor was a publicly outspoken enemy of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. He is perhaps best remembered for this quotation which I have stood and read in utter shame and horror on two occasions at the Yad Vashem (Holocaust Museum) in Israel. Let his words penetrate your very soul and please understand, what he was saying in nazi Germany over 80 years ago, is beginning to happen again HERE IN OUR BELOVED AMERICA!!!
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Speak Out! Do NOT keep silent!
This great nation’s very LIFE depends on it!
Pastors, you have a platform like NO OTHERS! Don’t squander it with this dribble about “keeping quiet” concerning what the government has instated as law. You must obey God and His calling upon you and His church!
If not us, His church, then who?
If not now……….when?
Pray God it is NOW ……. not later….
when no one can speak up.
God HELP them to understand!
God HELP them to believe they have a voice! Empower them with Your Holy Spirit! Give them the BACKBONE to TAKE A STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND GOOD IN YOUR SIGHT!!!
Give them COURAGE to overcome obstacles that come against them!
Give them BOLDNESS to CRY OUT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF FREEDOM!!! Give them a heart like David when he slew Goliath! He could not STAND to see Your people scorned and mocked! Look what You did with such a young boy, five little stones and a slingshot.
When we submit to God and HIS will first He not only CAN but PROMISES to work through us to accomplish the miraculous!
“Submit yourselves, therfore, to God; RESIST the devil……
AND HE WILL FLEE!!!!!
May God bless you beyond all reason, Mario. Thank you for speaking out the truth with courage and boldness!
Amen! It is time for True Christians to use their Voice. Thank you for using yours.
Thank God dear man of God, Mario, who is speaking out on this. God gave us borders all through the Bible. Many don’t it read anymore. Too much fear of the left satanic one world movement. Thank God for a Pres who stands against it. Thank God for VP Pence. Thank God for the Christian leaders who know Pres Trump is Gods choice.
In total agreement with you Mario! Please keep speaking the truth!!!
Just a thank you! And a prayer for you to be healed!
Then there is this smh
If we had not voted for President Trump we would have lose everything we hoped for in Christ Jesus. I only hope that he will become a born again Christian but thankful that he is our President.
Pres Trump is a born again Christian now. has been for a few years. I was watching the Jim Bakker show some time ago and Dr Don Colbert was the guest on there and he said that James Robison led the President in the sinner’s prayer and led him to Christ. I believe what he said on this.
I am surprised that I didn’t see that I had signed those remarks. Right on!
The left has a mantra, Christians are going to change their views to match our values…or else! Hillary actually came out and said it, she wasn’t supposed to do that, it was supposed to come as a surprise. Democrats want to import Muslims by the millions, why? To kill off the Christians that are opposing their perversion of America. The truth is, we are the only ones that can stop them and they know it. The problem is that the church doesn’t seem to know it. Pastors who support these radical leftists, either by direct action or by silence, are endangering their congregations. If the left succeeds in gaining absolute power as they intend, the purges that will follow will be a horrible nightmare for true Christians. People need to stop being blind followers of these pastors and start following Jesus!
Brother Mario first I want to say thank you for coming to Boise Idaho somewhere in the 90’smy granddaughter was only six and was crying and ask me to take her to the altar call….she is 32 ( I think) and has fallen away plz pray for her eyes too be opened to truth.
Second your so right about this So keep on keeping on Gods on your side.
Sister Paula Rohde
Jesus was totally political. He spoke about public affairs, he spoke about our justice system, he spoke about food distribution, taxes, he rooted out hypocrisy in the religious community, he spoke about what a great leader would be like, he spoke about marriage, the welfare of children, the poor, the lost, how to treat one another, debt, the greedy, he spoke about fear, prayer, the list goes on. Why would people think that we as a church would not have the same passion for politics! Jesus was Perfect when it came to politics!
We need to look & take warning ~ at Revelation 2: God said: The Ephesian church that had been so blessed with God had “LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE”, Oh they did many awesome “works”, but how did God judge them??? Because they were doing all works apart from “preeminent” ~ LOVE for Jesus ~ & The Holy Spirit to guide them!!! They didn’t Need the Holy Spirit, they must have thought??? How many in the “church” today don’t need or want Jesus & the Holy Spirit changing their work & plans??? So they are driven by a ‘Fear of loss’, & “love of $$” drives them… Good Question: Do we love Jesus with preminent Love & Who are we seeking to please?
“Oh, Jesus, get the Glory & Love, only You ~ deserve!!!” My husband, Ralph, taught on: “the Ephesian Tradegy” .. so fits today.
The Wall and the Door
“Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon. Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built.”
“I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved,’
A door is a part of a wall system
Its not about selling books or selling Bible studies. Its not about the offering plate. It’s about God. It’s about discernment and hearing the voice of God. It’s about being in touch with the Holy Spirit and discerning how God is the One responsible for Donald Trump and that God will fulfill His purpose through Donald Trump. We as Christians need to seek God as to whose voice lines up with His.
Sigh, so sad, but true! It’s actually the churches responsibility to care for the poor, feed the hungry, and heal the sick. We have abandoned our post in favor of mega church buildings and flirtation with the world…heavy hearted this morning….
Sad but true…..
there is no treaty that requires us to allow anyone to break our laws.
Thank God for you, Brother Mario!!!!
What would Jesus do? So many people don’t have a clue. God kicked the devil out of heaven and man out of the garden when he disobeyed. He had them build a wall around Jerusalem and then had a king help them rebuild it when it was damaged. So why do our enemies say that we are to love our neighbors when they are trying to kill, steel and destroy us? Why is it that most Christan’s don’t know the love or faith scriptures or the ones on healing or on prosperity? They do have the ones for pandering down pat though and some even teach that the poor are blessed. They ask what would Jesus drive? Then their answer use to be a VW Beetle, now it is a hybrid. Shows you how little they know. I believe He would drive a big double decker Greyhound bus for all his associates that traveled with him. Jesus is a King and we were promised the Holy Sprit to lead us in all truth. We need to be lead by the Holy Sprit and recognize the enemy at every turn. There is a difference between the government and the church. The church is to remain honorable and to spread the word of God. To teach and to set free those who are oppressed of the devil with truth and power. The government is to enforce the laws and keep people safe in the land. God set up two different systems for two different reasons. Good word Mario!
Glory to GOD, someone who speaks The TRUTH! Hallelujah! Thank you Mario.
If we stand for nothing we will fall for anything……
