Trumpism: A Religion for Sheeple by I. M. Probulos

Like millions of Americans I’ve been following the 2016 Presidential election with awe and befuddlement. The selection of Donald Trump as the Republican candidate has surprised virtually everyone–except perhaps Donald Trump. While it appears that Trump has rewritten the laws of politics one only has to look to the oldest of institutions, religion, to appreciate how he operates and what he’s accomplished. Trumpism is not a political movement like socialism or communism. It’s a religion and its followers are sheeple.

Donald Trump’s rise to power goes beyond just a political movement–it has numerous features of a religion. Catholicism, Mormonism, Islam, and even Scientology have nothing on Trumpism. It includes:

1. A figurehead, prophet, or deity (Trump) [take your pick]
2. An easily-offended, thin-skinned, and neurotic deity
3. Commandments
4. Motivation by fear
5. Creating an Us versus Them mentality (slay all non-believers)
6. Sell to fantasies and wishful thinking (a wall, anyone?)
7. Simple language and parables (repeat it until you believe it)
8. Demands loyalty
9. Faith-based (facts and reason not necessary)
10. Women are second-class citizens
11. Numerous contradictions
12. Persuade the uneducated, and disenfranchised and gullible.

Short Stories from the Heart by Margaret Helms

Some years ago I was privileged to be a member of a writers’ group. We met each month at the library. A story we had written was to be read to the group at that time. This book is a compilation of those stories.

My family moved many times during my younger years. Every place brought new people into my life along with experiences that I would not have encountered, otherwise. It’s my desire that everyone who reads this book will feel blessed.

LIFE AIN’T PIE: A True Story of Adultery, Trials and Redemption by Charmaine Clark

A True Story by Philosopher-Poet Charmaine Clark who gives compelling accounts through deeply intimate stories of her life and the empowering spiritual truths she’s learned. Charmaine offers readers wisdom to navigate the journey from bitterness to Sweetness through grace, to discovering the voice God has given you. With a poignant history of sexual abuse, infidelity, addiction, and crisis of spiritual turmoil Charmaine lived much of her life feeling unworthy of love or value. And like so many of us, she struggled to adjust after the residue of life’s pains and heartaches covered her, but now she fiercely fights on after it all, after the life line of grace was thrown out to her pulling her from the storms that sought to destroy her. Charmaine’s compelling and invitational writing will draw you to the voice of God who speaks into your life saying you are seen, you are loved, and although life is not pie his grace is the sweetness to our bitter life moments. With timeless wisdom, LIFE AIN’T PIE will help you uncover your God-given identity and a voice of your very own.“God gave me the sweetest slice of them all.”

Bible and the Postmodern Man: Is the Bible Relevant in the Postmodern Age? by Ebenezer Afolabi

The Bible is certainly one of the oldest books written in human history. It was written in the century far removed from ours and its approach to life issues is quite different from ours. There are apparent cultural, historical, sociological, and philosophical gaps that exist between the man in the Bible and the 21st Century man. Consequently, the practices in the Bible are foreign to the postmodern man, hence, the Bible is considered irrelevant to him. The questions are, how relevant is the Bible in the postmodern age? Can the Bible proffer solution to the problems of the postmodern man? Does the Bible make any sense to him at all? Is it not contradictory to admit to the antiquity of the Bible and still believe in its relevance in the postmodern age? These are the questions this book will provide answers to.
