Yeah, he did.
Which is a good lesson about God. He has the taste of his followers, being sort of indifferent to the fact (because they were non-Jewish), but using it as a lesson against the Jews. "Look, even these people of Nineveh can repent, and do so in a heartbeat." You see, God is like his people. When God was simply the God of the Jews, that was one thing (note the Judeocentric mindset of the early Old Testament, making war on behalf of the Jews, but seeing them turn away again and again).
But by the New Testament, it looks like God finally had enough, and left the Jews. A reading between the lines though has a very spurned lover feel, that God must be a very lonely God. Jesus (and God) was still trying to reach the Pharisees, the Jewish people in the Temple, but the people who needed God most were the outsiders. The Gentiles (ultimately), the poor, crippled, blind, leperous, and those burned by the Jewish religion, those where the ones helped by Jesus. Jesus calls the Jews out, but his main point is "Look, your duty is to these people." Unfortunately , today, these very outsiders seem to have gotten the idea that Jesus was preaching against them (why anti-God movements like atheism or pop religion are rampant). Well, if you come across as arrogant, best to leave that part of you behind. But God wants to help, and has trouble when people push him away. Hell, I have trouble reaching out to people who push me away. It's a defense mechanism that doesn't really work. We need relating to people, the natural world, and yes God. We as a race are programmed to be imperfect.
But the more we try to be perfect, the more we fail. You are not Christian, you are not Jewish. But look at the Pharisees and the front they kept up to avoid being vulnerable, and do the opposite. At some point, we need help. God himself all too apparently created us for company, and we've kinda missed the point, focusing on religion and how we can't be a part. So don't, but do seek out God's help. He needs us too.
Not only did Nebuchadnezzar see the writing on the wall, but those who followed also distrusted God and wanted themselves to be worshipped, but by the time you got to Darius, they actually cared for Daniel and had to be tricked into hurting him. In other words, each generation was a little better. It usually took a major upheaval for them to see sense though.
Trump himself appears to have become more evil during his presidency. Despite people looking to him for answers to corrupt politics, near the end of his presidency, he supported the vaccination system that Biden now uses and takes credit for. This is why I say that I no longer support politicians. Will you listen to me this time, when I say I don't care for such leaders? I only care that the current leftist leadership is forcing the churches and shops to behave in a way that is pushing people away, using their fear for safety to screw with economies and with the basic treatment of other people. And I care that they're largely going along with it, to my great disappointment.
You know what I'm noticing though? The shops, for reasons of greed, are actually more inclined to defy these mandates to stay six feet away, to only take the vaccinated and leave people who haven't the right credentials without service, and to turn away those without masks. That is, Jesus said to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, visit the sick, and imprisoned. While stores don't visit the sick, they welcome the sick for entirely selfish reasons of wanting income. These people, and not the temples and churches, are doing what Jesus said. Only a few churches are. Though I don't blame them, their hierarchy has fucked them over.
Now, Biden and those in charge are trying to inflate the economy, screw with our borders, and sabotage normal lives any way they can. So yes, I have a problem with how evil these leaders are.
But the people who defy them are doing an admirable amount of good. For the entirely selfish reasons of securing good press, Food Lion takes credit for people's five dollar gifts to send boxes that say "Food Lion Cares" to the poor. Now these have cheap non-perishable items, and they largely give food bank fresh food on the verge of rot, but the average churchgoer is not able to give this amount of food. When we look at the people who care nothing for God or man, but for the sake of their own success will do for others for good press, we should take this as an example.
The church is in need of reform, as is government. Both have been part of something wicked and unjust, to make millions of people feel as outcasts for something that doesn't kill most of the people who get it, and where births far outweigh deaths.I went into a church a few months ago, and they asked about my vaccination status, something nobodt outsude of medicine has any business knowing. I left, feeling rejected by the people who claimed to be people of God. This isn't right, not at all. Regardless of how many people are sick, a church's first priority is to be a Traveler Welcome Home (as in, "traveler, welcome home"), the secobd traditionally was to work with healers to provide treatment. But no treatment can be done, and visitors are turned away in many cases.
If you think that GOP is bad, by all meand do better. Give to charities not on their virtue signalling about race or gender, but on their ability to help. Heifer could use your donation. So could battered women's shelters and those for LGBT people. I would say also help the environment, but many of those organizations have become worthless, so I will instead say to plant trees.
