1. “Former billionaire Sam Bankman-Fried, founder of cryptocurrency exchange company FTX, funneled millions of dollars to Democratic campaigns, becoming one of the party’s largest donors, second only to George Soros.
“Bankman-Fried donated nearly $38 million during the midterm cycle, according to Federal Election Commission data. His company also reportedly set up a website, Aid for Ukraine, to raise funds for Ukrainians amid the ongoing war against Russia. The initiative was powered by the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, FTX and Ukrainian-web company Everstake.

The index currently estimates Bankman-Fried has no material wealth.” FOX NEWS, Published November 11, 2022 1:26pm EST

If a political party happens to endorse or policy, a plank of a platform or a program which aligns with the teachings, doctrines and practices of the Bible, we consider that to be coincidental, and we cooperate in those cases as a co-belligerent only.
(A CO-BELIGERENT is someone who may not have any sufficient basis for taking the right position, but takes the right positions on a single issue. I can join with this person without any danger as long as I realize that he is not an ALLY, that we are cooperating only on a single issue.
1. So when it comes to issues of the common good, such as proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, ending abortions, preserving religious freedom, healing racial divisions, or relieving poverty, we can be CO-BELLIGERENTS and cooperate with people or organizations who do not share our Christian convictions. But we must not be drawn into becoming full ALLIES and careful not to disclose detail about our organizations, personnel or our ongoing methods, lest our CO-BELLIGERENTS would use these against us on other issues.
