Many reporters, many bloggers, many regular people are all talking about Mitt's Flip-Flops in his campaign for President.
Interesting to learn is that Mitt's campaign strategy is based on the Apostle Paul's First Corinthians, which Mitt is using as a playbook the way many business people use Sun Tzu's Art of War as a blue print.
Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. (1 Cor 9:19 NIV)
Various newspapers have reported how Mitt changed his position on abortion to garner more votes. Of course, he cleared this strategy with the Mormon elite first in Salt Lake City. Mitt was running for Senate against Senator Ted Kennedy, and his Mormon Pro-Life position was working against him. So Mitt changed appearances to win the Pro-Choice votes. He made "himself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible."
This didn't of course mean that Mitt Romney was really Pro-Choice, just another wolf in sheep's clothing.
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (although I myself am not under the law), so asto win those under the law. (1 Cor 9:20 NIV)
To the Second Amendment voters, Romney is a 'hunter,' although it has been reported that Romney doesn't even own a gun. Maybe for a Republican that is good though; Cheney shoot enough people 'accidentally' for disagreeing with him on hunts.
To the gay marriage proponents, Romney while governor took on the cloak of the LGBT movement, appearing to be their friends; then come along the National Organization for Marriage, and Prop 8.
To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. (1 Cor 9:21 NIV)
To the Pro-Choice voters, Romney appeared as a Pro-Choice candidate, and will justify his position as a change in view; which is hard to image a high-ranking Mormon like Romney, would really be anything other than the Mormon Pro-Life candidate.
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. (1 Cor 9:22)
To wins souls to Christ, especially in Paul's day performing missionary work in the Gentile world, I can see where Paul would have to be a shape-shifter to appear as one he is preaching to. But do we want a politician who will say whatever it takes, to steal a vote? Because that is what Romney is doing when he says he is Pro-Choice; but he isn't. He hopes some voter is uninformed enough to vote for him based on his one position statement, which isn't sincere.
To win souls to Christ, to be concerned about a person's salvation, and "twisting" the truth, like the Mormon Missionaries do, isn't ethical. Biblically based, but not ethical for politics. Surely if Mormon Romney in France as a Missionary lied to a French man/woman just to get them baptized; surely those individuals wouldn't be in the Mormon cult still today.
I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in it's blessings. (1 Cor 9:23 NIV)
Romney is doing all of this, so that he can win the reward of being crowned an Apostle in the Mormon cult after he successfully completes the mission of being a two-term proxy for Mormon President, Prophet Thomas Monson.
Do you not know that in a race all the runner's run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. (1 Cor 9:24 NIV)
In order to fulfill the White Horse Prophecy, Paul is telling Romney to keep his eye on the prize; the Oval Office.
Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get to a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. (1 Cor 9:25)
Two crowns; one won't last, one will. The first crown in the race is the Oval Office which only lasts from four to eight years. The second crown is an Apostleship in the Mormon cult.
Strict training, reshaping his image in his run for Governor, and his run for Senate. Learning from each election, and how to "compromise" his Mormon faith on issues like Pro-Choice - but since it was a fake position only his faith wasn't compromised, just his integrity.
Therefore, I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. (1 Cor 9:26 NIV)
The Romneys are a pioneer Mormon family, who have an ancestor who was an Apostle. Mitt's goal is to become an Apostle, which will be his "reward" after successfully serving two terms in the White House. The American Presidency is just a stepping stone to get there.
No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. (1 Cor 9:27 NIV)
"I will not be disqualified for the prize," that truly sums up Romney's attitude and his drive to win the White House, whether is takes lying about the jobless rates of women since Obama took office, lying about his position on Pro-Life, refusing to discuss the influence of the Mormon Cult on his "presidency."
What ever it takes.
Sorry Mitt, I don't see an honest, faithful Christian - I see a Mormon who would say anything to get the White House, and push the Book of Mormon.
Romney comes from the top of the Mormon Pyramid. You don't have a higher Mormon pedigree when you have a Pioneer family history, an ancestor who was an Apostle. You have to watch out for the Elite White Boys Only Club (EWBOC).
