Will Cruz Sell his Soul?

Postby Ged » Wed Mar 08, 2017 12:00 am

On Wednesday night Ted and Heidi Cruz will dine with Donald Trump at the White House. Now isn't that ducky? :iwantsomething: The report never said if Melania would be there, or what would be discussed, but I'm picking that Donald hopes to 'butter up' Ted to support his 'Obamacare-lite' Health policy.

Now, as we know, Cruz has been staunch in his demands to completely scrap Obamacare. So, what will he do? Will Cruz sell his soul for a mess of pottage?

Im voting that he'll eat his dinner, wipe his mouth, and say, "Sorry Donald." What do you think?

"Sell his soul"?

What exactly is that implying?
1 Corinthians 1:9

Hasn't Cruz already done that?

The latest news is, Donald Trump calls Obamacare replacement 'The World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017.’ He's full of praise for it!

What do his "In Trump we Trust" supporters think of that?

Well, it seems my hunch is shared by the media. Headlines say, "Trump Courts Cruz in WH Dinner to Help Grease AHCA" I may be wrong that Cruz will stand up against Trump again, but one thing is obvious; Trump has caved already!

I think Ted Cruz's father stole Ted's soul, when The elder Cruz went on with Kenneth Copeland, and said how God told him that Ted was anointed by God, to be the next POTUS.

I still can't get over how God broke His promise to make Cruz next POTUS.

It is funny you should use the word soul. What you see of Cruz is not Cruz, but a projection of the oversoul of his predecessor Oswald. When Oswald was banished back to the void by Ruby, the "animus" or essence of said oversoul took on the mantle of Cruz for a reason yet to be discerned. Because, who can understand celestial beings?

But anyway, 'soul' is both an understatement and overstatement of the many aspects of Oswald. Cruz manifested with the attributes of the more stable portion of his being, while the wild and chaotic side was manifest in Trump. So he is not one entity but the fragment of many under one 'soul' if you wish to call it that.

I guess God must have sold out to Trump. ;)

Well, since a good chunk of them are oldish and poorish they'd be wise to oppose it. Here's the AARP's take on the matter. The TL;DR version of the letter is that they think it would badly hurt their members and they strongly oppose it.
If you're accustomed to privilege equality may feel like oppression.

Well, in fairness, there has been a lot of silly talk about Trump being the "Lord's Anointed" too. That sort of talk gives Christians a bad name.
