Elections and wolves in sheep’s clothing

/ 04:02 AM November 24, 2021

Election season has begun. People have started going crazy, including so-called servants of God.

Guard against churches, ministers, pastors, and priests who barter their pulpits for “offerings” or donations from candidates who buy votes. They are those who exploit their members, pray over “anointed ones” and raise their hands; those who solicit attention or are lured by political courting during elections. They invite/allow candidates or politicians to their “prayer meetings” and sell their souls to the devil in exchange for political favors and pieces of silver.


Don’t believe their “hints” or endorsements. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

The church’s role is to guide the flock toward being filled with the Holy Spirit and having the mind of God in electing the right leaders for the nation. However, the church getting embroiled in politics or endorsing candidates is evil, because it always is apt to endorse not the will of God, but the parochial agenda of the politicizing church and personal interests of its false leaders—to the nation’s doom.


What does mobilizing “millions” of their cultic followers exactly mean to these wolves except to dictate upon the blind and muster votes to build political clout in the guise of religion or a morality movement? Leave them alone and so be healed and truly saved—through Jesus Christ (not religion).

“For much of human history, religion may have been a necessary evil, but why was it more evil than necessary? Isn’t killing people in the name of God a pretty good definition of insanity?”—George Washington

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits…”—Matthew 7:15-16
