Let’s face it (pun intended), Carly won’t help Cruz.
Cruz is dropping like a rock. He is a phony politician who, in Indiana of all places, calls a basketball “hoop” a basketball “ring”. I don’t know what’s worse, listening to Cruz’s phony speeches or listening to someone scratch their fingernails on a blackboard.
Or how about when Trump has his ' little wine & little cracker' during communion.

Trump, not Cruz, exhibits the favor of God(grace) in this race. A characteristic of having the favor of God (grace) upon your life is you become a mirror to others and reflect back to them what emanates from them. By that I mean, when you have the favor of God, those that bless you will be blessed, and those that curse you will be cursed. Those who are with you will prosper, and those who come against you will fail. We see the latter phenomena in the current Presidential race as Trump has been pointing out, as those that have come against him have failed, and that will go for Ted Cruz as well, who will, like those before him (Jeb, etc.), become road kill in front of the Trump express rolling down the highway of history. The GOP elite can’t stop Trump. Nor can Mitt. Nor Beck. Nor George Soros. Nor the politically correct media. Not even the Pope can stop Trump. Nor can Vicente Fox. Nor can Obama. Nor can China, or Mexico, or anyone else. No, there is no one, absolutely no one, and absolutely nothing, that can stop Trump because if God be for Trump, who can stop Trump?
No matter what Trump does, no matter what he says (sometimes IN SPITE of what he says), no matter who is plotting against Trump and no matter what they do, no matter how the politically correct media tries to spin Trump negatively, no matter how many anti-Trump tirades and commercials fly in the face of Trump, Trump prospers! And that ladies and gentlemen, is the favor of God! That is amazing grace!

“God has also chosen Cruz and Kasich and Bernie and Hillary for this moment in history.”
No. There can only be one POTUS and so God is only calling ONE person to that position.

I do not underestimate what God can do in a persons life. I believe Trump will not be the same man when he leaves office than when he went in. In retrospect, I think it will be clear Trump had the hand of God upon him at this point in time.

The OT verses I quoted are from Proverbs and are not part of the law of Moses and so are still very much valid today.
The context of the Scripture I quoted from Daniel makes no mention of correction versus blessing. I believe America has been cursed the last 7 plus years with Obama in office, but blessing in coming to America in the form of Trump to yes, make America great again. When God chooses to bless a nation, He doesn’t always choose one of His own—case in point: Cyrus.

No, I am suggesting Trump is looking at things through the lens of leading this country and it is in line with what God expects of rulers/kings.
 April 14, 2016 at 3:50pm
Putting the NT verse I cited aside, the OT verses I cited do speak to justice as men speak of justice.
Regarding Trump’s life, while I do maintain Trump has been chosen by God and exudes the favor of God(grace) in this election cycle, I do not maintain Trump is Godly. To the contrary. And that is very much in line with what it says in Daniel:
“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.”
And I challenge any and all believers who know the Holy Spirit take the pulse of the Holy Spirit and see if the Holy Spirit agrees that God has chosen Trump for America at this point in our history.

As a Bible believer, I am glad to be pulling the lever for Trump. God gives everyone certain talents and abilities. They are God’s gifts to each one of us whether we believe in Him or not, whether we follow Him and His ways or not. God knows what talents and abilities America needs in the White House right now to rescue America from swirling down the toilet bowl. We are in need of a rescue so fast it’ll make our heads spin! And there is only one man God is calling to do that for America right now, and that is the one man who is exuding the favor of God(grace) in this current Presidential election race, and that man is Donald J. Trump!

The attitude spoken of by Trump here actually is more in line with what God expects of rulers and not individual believers. In the Bible, God holds nations to different standards than He does for individuals. On a personal, individual level, of course we are called by Christ to love and forgive and turn the other cheek. But on a national level, God expects nations/kings to execute justice:
“By justice a king gives a country stability”
“When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.”
“For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”
am: I didn't vote for Trump to teach me the Bible. I want him to fix the mess Obama and the Democrats left us in.
Am123, are you suggesting that Trump knows enough about the Bible that his answer implied that he knew he was held to a different standard as a ruler than an individual?
I see no evidence that the man has anything other than a shallow surface understanding of ANYTHING he talks about, let alone the scholarship required to understand deep Biblical meanings and interpretations.
am: With respect, our definition, as human beings, of "justice" may not be exactly what is meant in these Scriptures you're quoting.
In the New Testament, the Greek word used for "justice" is "dikaiosýnē", which literally translates to "divine approval". So, it's really not speaking about men's versions of "justice". The Biblical usage is actually speaking about what is deemed right by the Lord, not by Earthly rulers, kings, Presidents, or Republican candidates.
SO, one is to ask himself, "what is right by the Lord"? Can you tell me? Does Trump's life's example exemplify what is "right by the Lord"?
If you still think so, God bless you and good luck.
I don't happen to think Trump's examples reflect what is "right by the Lord", not even his attitudes. Having the "eye for an eye" attitude doesn't express what is "right by the Lord" either.
So, respectfully, I disagree with your ultimate conclusion that God's will is for this man to be our leader.
"The attitude spoken of by Trump here actually is more in line with what God expects of rulers and not individual believers."
In practice, Trump looking to get even with those he thinks has wronged him.
Feud with Megan Kelley
Going after Ted Cruz's wife.
Threatening to sue about the CO convention, even though the rules were out long before he was the frontrunner (even before he officially entered the race).
This is not a man that is seeing the nuanced difference you are claiming.
As to God's hand on him, if God is using Trump, I'd suggest it is more to punish us for our continuing godless society rather than because Trump is in any way righteous. Maybe He will use Trump to bring us to repentance as He used Israel's enemies to bring them to repentance.

If the Lord says don’t do it, I am the Lord, that’s good enough for me not to get a tattoo.
April 14, 2016 at 12:13pm
The command against a tattoo is not that same as the command against eating pork. The command against a tattoo is emphasized by the follow up “I am the Lord”. Clearly, it is displeasing to the Lord to get a tattoo. But as for dietary laws, we are free from dietary laws in the New Covenant. But as I said, a Christian can be forgiven for a tattoo, but it is more displeasing to the LORD to get one than not to.
 April 14, 2016 at 10:57am
“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.”
That’s pretty straight forward. One can always change your eating habits or whatever now and in the future, but once you get a tattoo, there’s no going back. It’s displeasing to the LORD to get a tattoo, that is clear.
I think the moral of the story is yes, people can be forgiven for tattoos, but they shouldn’t get them in the first place. It is Satan that drives the tattoo trend, not the LORD, who clearly does not approve of tattoos. Show me someone covered with tattoos in professional sports for example and I’ll show you someone with character flaws.
So if I follow your logic, the choice to eat pork is less of a sin than the choice to get a tattoo, based on the length of time one has to endure the result of the choice?
Google Tattoo Removal. LASER , Times Change , See Tim Tebow Or Does He Count ?
The command was also given to the Jews at a specific time in History for a specific reason. Jesus fulfilled the law and the law clearly did not apply to Gentile believers (or else the early church would have circumcised all the new Gentile believers). This is also evident throughout the NT where Christian Jews were trying to impose aspects of the law on new Gentile believers. The early church addressed it in Acts and Paul addressed it as well.

It sure looks like the downturn coincides with Beck’s constant bashing of Trump.
Beck isn’t going to be a happy camper when Trump sweeps the Northeast and clinches 1237 going into CA and NJ.

If Cruz didn’t lie so much, Trump wouldn’t call him lyin’ Ted.
If trump had good ideas he wouldn't have to name call. His ideas are stupid like a dog with a very bad brain. Sad.
I'm laughing in your face and I love it. Hahaha.
Hehe good one!
If no one hits the 1237 by convention, and the GOPe throw in a RINO, I think Cruz and Trump should team up and run 3rd party. I know they pretty much hate each other, but it might be more theatrics than it is real. I think they can get over it long enough to whoop whoever GOPe throw in there. I for one will only vote Cruz or Trump. They try shenanigans, and I'm out.
New York elected de blasio and countless other anti American morons…. Way to show your true anti conservative and anti American colors.
Brilliant, trump touts antirepublican new york values to brain dead crowd. There are more republicans in new york on primary votes, they disappear in real election. WHY? democreeps are creepily interfering in republican politics. REPUBLICANS TOO STUPID TO STOP IT. every new york vote costs 5 in the heartland. TRUMP will change his message to his real beliefs briefly to win ny. then go back to lying. lying ted? ted wont change his message to please democrat jew yorkers (think sara silverman and howard stern)
“He is Lyin’ Ted,” Trump replied with a smile. “You know I came up with the idea.
What an idiot!
He just said he came up with it!
Ted Cruz is not a liar. Trump came up with the idea to call Cruz a liar.
And you're a lyin' queen.

Bravo Mr. Trump. This belies the image painted of Trump by his enemies. I think the biggest surprise many of Trump’s critics will discover is that he is a good person and he wants what is best for America.
Too bad there is no proof of this. But of course you Trumpsters will condemn Cruz with no facts.
It is amazing that people will believe anything trump has put out over the so called news.
It reminds me of a movie Idiocracy.
See the difference from Cruz to Trump is that if Cruz has sinned, he’d ask for forgiveness but Trump has made it known that he’s done nothing that requires him to go to church and ask for forgiveness from God. While Cruz has the humility to come before God, Trump equates himself to God. Big difference.
Yes because when the National Enquirer says "she delivered an alien, see pictures inside of real life alien baby" I don't check sources I say it must be true! And these are the Trump supporters. Sigh.
 March 25, 2016 at 11:04am
In the general election, Trump will draw the Democratic base right out from underneath them. Trump will get a large chunk of the black vote. Cruz or anyone else can’t do that in the general election. When was the last time the Republican GOP candidate got a large chunk of the black vote?
That support is only going to grow when he announces Carson as his running mate.
That will also go a long ways toward making idiots like Whoopi Goldberg shut up about how "racist" he is.
The Democrats have crossed over so they can cause chaos. You can be sure they will be backing their progressive communist (whichever one it is) this fall. Same reason Soros is funding Kasich. To cause chaos at the convention.
Just trading one oppressor for another.
Although Trump may just be more racially egalitarian in his oppression than demoncrats.
What you say may be true, but we're trying to get a President that'll respect the Constitution, not one to cherry pick it. If Trump wins the nomination, I hope it'll be the first, but I highly doubt it. I'm in it for Cruz. However if Trump wins, than I'm in for Trump, but only very nervously and if he does what he says he will do, then he'll be a great President, if not then it's all hot air and I hope Cruz runs against him in the 2020 primary.

America has been cursed with Obama, but blessing is coming to America through Trump.
