As a Christian, I can’t vote for a candidate that supports abortion. Life starts in the heart of God. The Bible establishes that before we were formed in the bellies of our mothers, He already knew us. (Jeremiah 1:5) In the eyes of God, please hear this, killing a child in the belly of his/her mom, is the same as killing a child who is already born. Think about that for a minute!
As a Christian, I can’t vote for a candidate that supports same sex marriages and passionately endorses the destruction of the Biblical family unit. God knows best! He called many things an abomination including homosexuality. It is not the only sin, but it is the only sin that is aggressively demanding recognition, approval from the law, and approval from God’s people, but I don’t see them seeking approval from Muslims.
As a Christian, I can’t support a candidate that refuses to stand side by side, in full cooperation, with the nation of Israel. Nobody messes with Israel and get away with it. Blessings and curses flow directly and depend strictly on our treatment of Israel. (Genesis 12:3) Israel is the center of the world, not the United States.
As a Christian, I can’t support a candidate that endorses government control. Even God gave us a free will. The government’s purpose is limited to the protecting our nation, to keeping our infrastructure in good condition and to the protecting of the law of the land [The Constitution]. Outside of that we, the people, decide what we want to eat, where we want to go, what we want to do, how we want to do it, and what we want to have in accordance with the law.
I can’t support a candidate that promotes laziness and overwhelms society with government handouts. My Bible tells me that if you don’t work, you don’t deserve to eat. (2 Thessalonians 3:10) Laziness is indeed destroying our society, that is because the Bible tells us in Proverbs 10:4, “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” (NIV)
As a Christian, I can’t support a candidate that over taxes me. God Himself only asks for 10% plus whatever else you choose to give from your heart cheerfully. I proudly pay my taxes, but I most also provide for my family according to First Timothy 5:8. Leave the money I work for in my hands; I’d rather support God’s Kingdom than government failed programs.
As a Christian I can’t support a candidate that is weak in the protection of the people that are called to serve and protect this country. The Bible tells me that one of the functions of a Godly government is to protect us from evil according to Romans 13:4-5. We are in trouble when that government becomes evil itself and attempt to paralyze its citizens from the ability to defend themselves. I have a problem when one of our dear soldiers, is left in a prison in Mexico for seven months over some foolishness.
You may say, we should not take into consideration a political candidate’s religious views. To that I respond, that if a candidate practices these Godly fundamental issues, it will be a good foundation for everything else.
I must also say that as a Christian, we are running out of options. Prophetically speaking I see the day when we will look for The Constitution to display laws to protect our freedom to be Christians and that freedom will be taken. We will look for fairness in the court of law and we will only see injustice. Christians in other nations are currently being persecuted, but the day will come when the United States government will openly and without reservation persecute the Christians of America.
An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director.
While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.
In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot.
In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona. On June 8th 2021 Angel started his home church, not as a starting point, but as a closer way to how the church is suppose to look like according to Scripture.
