For anyone who may not currently know, please keep alert:

WASHINGTON – Televangelist Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Coalition, endorsed Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday.

“It is my pleasure to announce my support for America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, a proven leader who is not afraid of what lies ahead and who will cast a hopeful vision for all Americans,” Robertson said during a news conference with Giuliani in Washington.

The former New York mayor backs abortion rights and gay rights, positions that put him in conflict with conservative GOP orthodoxy, and has been trying to persuade evangelical conservatives like Robertson to overlook their differences on those issues.

Now, for those who may not realize the significane of this,

Pat Robertson (Marion Gordon Robertson) founded the Christian Coalition of America in 1989 and headed the organization until his resignation in December 2002.

Robertson is the founder and chairman of The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) Inc. — described as “a dedicated earth satellite station” — based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, from which he broadcasts and hosts the “700 Club” program. Robertson is the founder of International Family Entertainment Inc., Regent University, of which he is president and chancellor, Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation, American Center for Law and Justice, The Flying Hospital, Inc. and “several other organizations and broadcast entities.” [1][2]

Now to many, this is a great shock…..but in all honesty, I was amazed to see that there have been many things which Mr.Pat has done contrary to Scripture that could be considered on the same LEVEL as what Rudy supports, which of course is the devaluing of life.

Has anyone ever seen the movie “Blood Diamond”?? It contained many truths/factual information regarding the explotation/murder done by many dictators to the people in Africa that often takes place in order to recieve the diamonds/jewlrey we in America wear without any thought……….

Funny, however, is that Robertson has actually supported the trade. Of cours, it wasn’t made as public as other information…..but I was quite shocked to learn of it. Go here to find out:

Ironically, prior to the incident, Robertson DENOUNCED BUSH for wanting to take the man down whom actually was greatly financing Robertson.

As another wisely said on the issue, “Robertson had millions invested in gold in Liberia and when it was time for Charles Taylor to be ousted, Pat suddenly felt it was a bad idea for the Bush Administration to do so. He claimed the nation would “descend into chaos” and that Muslim radicals would take over. Instead they’ve got a new President and Islamists have not taken over. Liberia is a nation that has been fairly well pimped by folks looking to make an easy buck and Pat was doing the same in my opinion. Although he claims he was going to use the money for aid and evangelism. In keeping Taylor in power there would have been more continued chaos than there was in Taylor’s being removed”

That said, Honestly, I don’t think anyone should be shocked by the issue. For someone to support other ventures that cause bloodshed/violence, it makes sense for Robertson to do as he did with Rudy in light of the abortion issue..

 

As John Bunyan once said, “Sins never travel ALONE…” AND THE sins one says yes to are the same ones that bring in/open the door for all of the other ones that may’ve been deplorable & what you’d originally rejected…..& regarding Robertson, if there is acceptance of one evil because of the profit it gives you, then it becomes that much more easy to disregard another when similar situations arise.

 

There are many other things which Robinson has done that should give many Christians pause before endorsing him or holding him up as truly “SOLD OUT FOR GOD”, & IF ONE were to follow the bread crumb trail, it might lead you here:

Matthew 7:15-23

15) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

16) You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?

17) Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

19) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

21) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22) Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

23) And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

 

Can’t claim the NAME of CHRIST when one doesn’t have the NATURE, regardless of whatever good he or she does in his name or how it may’ve blessed someone. There are many good deeds that people who are atheist do, as well as people from other religious backgrounds who do humatarian work….but at the end of the day, what matters is whether or not those actions were built upon the solid WORD OF GOD/CHRIST’S WORDS……..

 

The Wise and Foolish Builders

24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
