Divine Slander: These Things Ought Not To Be

Demons are not Divine

Rattling around in Satan’s tool box are highly specialized “tools”. Satan doesn’t use pry bars and sledge hammers to divide us; he uses demonic spirits like self-righteousness, criticism, judgementalism, false accusations and intolerance.

At least here in Texas, those nasty tools have been very effective to divide and conquer Christian communities. From my vantage point, it seems the presidential primary race spawned a wave of self-righteousness, leaving behind a debris field of sharp division among church-going Republicans.

Last weekend I saw first-hand, up close and personal, an example of all the above named tools set up on a “political workbench” in our Rockwall County Library. The finished product wasn’t something I would want to come out of my home workshop: ‘divine slander’.

“Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.” – Psalm 101:5

Crossroads of Politics and Religion

God gave us ten simple commandments for our faith. California Republicans gave us an eleventh fully compatible with the aforementioned ten. Speakers frequently attribute that Eleventh Commandment to Ronald Reagan; while he was not its source, he popularized it.

Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican.” 

The Bible has nothing good to say about self-righteousness and slander.

He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.Proverbs 10:18

During this 2012 election season, a wave of lies, slanders and misrepresentations divided our community and weakened our political influence. Bridges have been forever burned, relationships forever soured.

Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize – The Blessings of God

Blessings and cursings are the product of one’s heart. “…out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh”, said Jesus. His brother James admonished, “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.”

Trustworthy candidates tout their respective qualifications. They don’t slander opponents.

Jesus made very clear: we reap what we sow.

Let’s sow honor to reap honor. Let’s sow truth to reap truth.

  1. I’v researched all of the things on Medina and it all looks legit. This stuff is true. Look it up.How did he make it to the runoff? This judge is scum!

  2. Your scholarly research is amazing, Dallas Smith, simply amazing. Since you genuinely want to get to the heart of the matter, no doubt you’ll want to get solid facts from multiple news sources.

    I wrote this article titled “DIVINE SLANDER” to counter false accusations against Justice David Medina by the John Divine campaign that has sought to pile up accusations against a sitting Supreme Court Judge who is endorsed by a long list of Texas conservative leaders, including Dan Patrick, Jodie Laubenberg, Gregg Abbott and Rick Perry.

    Want to know the truth about the arson charges against Francisca Medina? Read these articles.

    We going to go a lot farther with the truth in our labors to elect good people to public offices.

    John Divine indicated very, very clearly in his speech last Saturday that he intends to legislate from the bench – I recorded the audio, in case you wish to review it.

    Particularly focusing on the arson charge against his wife, if you take the time to do your own personal research, instead of accepting slanderous and false information from the likes of that idiot Joe Pool, Jr., you will quickly discover the truth.

    Joe Pool, Jr. lied and David Medina properly challenged his lie: “That’s a lie and you know it.”

    Now, if you TRULY want to research, learn about John Divine from the Houston TEA Party Society: http://www.houstonrealty.org/SM%204-HRBC-9.pdf
