Church Cliques and Political Picks
DISCLAIMER: This blog post is purposely hyperbolic and any similarities to persons living or dead should be viewed as a sign that that person needs Jesus....I mean REALLY needs Jesus.We're one month away from the election and it seems that the campaign team of Ben Winston has started to amp up their campaign tactics weather you're a willing supporter or not. The other night, after coming from a delightful night of hearing the Mississippi Mass Choir, I drove through Lumberton and noticed a lot of newly placed "Help Ben Win" campaign signs. I thought to myself that a lot of people have went over to the dark side. Well, the next morning, I was contacted by several people that said that someone had placed a Ben Winston campaign sign in their yard without their permission. I like to say I was surprised but that's the nature of Ben's supporters; they slither around at night and trespass on people's property in an effort to give others the impression that he has their support. I advised several of the people I spoke with to throw the signs in the trash because they were placed without permission. There were some that felt that this matter should be considered harassment. I didn't agree but I told them that if they threw away the signs, the person slithering onto their property at night would get the message that they don't appreciate the trespass and Winston's campaign will suffer the loss of another sign they purchased. There's plenty of idiots that willingly support Winston and no one should try to deceive people by placing signs in their yards without their permission. But that's the nature of Winston's supporters.
The type of person that support Ben Winston will call concern calamity and will consider questions as a form of dissension. I've noticed that Ben's supporters are spineless. If you call and leave them a message they will then turn around and discuss the message with everyone else except the person that called them. Can you say coward? They will say they are not comfortable with your spirit but don't have a problem looking/using your "gifts" that are displayed on every surface in their lying den (intentional spelling), the foyer, the main area, restrooms and even the fellowship hall. So what is it that really troubles you? Amazingly that troubling spirit didn't prevent requesting an investment into this scheme/scam that didn't yield any return. As a matter of fact, the money invested was not returned in the same manner it was presented but now you're troubled. You should be because you know that it was nothing more than a pyramid scheme but that's what predators do. Those that support Ben are generally known for throwing temper tantrums/rocks from the pulpit and on social media but can't address you when they see you in person. Those that support Ben Winston can see wrong in others, especially those spreading the word of truth, but give Nadab and Abihu a pass because they're "yes men/women". A lot of people support Ben because of what he can do for them or for promises he made to them or for money he took from his church to fund their trips while looking the other way while he continue to bring desolation to the City of Lumberton. Those that support Ben think it's not appropriate to question a minister that left his "calling" for politics but prays in the marketplace every weekend. Somehow, the supporters of Ben Winston forgot or have opted to forget that Passah (a lot of black people, not all, don't say Pastor, they say Passah because they're usually being pacified) Ben Winston went to court to have 82 year old woman kicked out of the church where he was the pastor because she allegedly called his wife a female dog. Surely a person that reached that age and still possess the ability to live independently has some sort of discernment but people are discouraged from telling the truth; even in the church or should they be called social clubs because it seems that the mission of Christ has been replaced by serving the Passah and not the One True Living God. One thing I've learned over the years is the fact that kids and old people are usually the most honest people but I don't think that's a reason to kick an elderly lady out of church. Interestingly, it seems that it's normal for ministers to kick people out of church. Thank God they don't have ownership of heaven.
Last time I checked, even God could be questioned but ministers, who claim to be called by God, have a problem when they're asked a question. Interesting. I think my message was conveyed and I'm sure I won't be contacted because my number is public. Maybe I'll get another video emailed to me with a sinister laugh at the end. Whatever the case may be, I'm shaking the dust from my feet and moving. Regardless of where they go, they can't forget where they started but then again revisionist history is all the rave these days. I can't blindly follow Ben Winston because he's a minister because I see what he's done to this city and now I'm supposed to reward him by giving him a better position? He's not willing to do anything to move Lumberton forward but now he want another chance at a County position. Ben is comfortable plotting with liars and thieves just like many of his co-laborers are comfortable with active drug dealers and loan sharks sitting under their teachings without changing professions. As an avid reader, I know that many failed to question Jim Jones because he was a pastor. Since he treated his post as that of a ruler and not a shepherd, he lead his congregation to their death. I pray that you don't suffer the same fate. The dirty tactics are running rampant but I hope people don't fall for the deceptive tactics. If you want to see how Ben Winston will serve as Supervisor, take a look at the videos showing how he's serving as Mayor. In less than two weeks, Ben Winston and the rest of his cronies will take the stand in the case that's becoming known as The City of Lumberton vs. The Lumberton Informer. I guess the citizens will get another glimpse of the Winston machine because two news outlets are going to be present to cover the trail; just in time for the more news clips before the November election.
