Why Get Into Politics on A Christian Website?
Let me start by saying I am neither a Democrat, Progressive, Socialist, Marxist, Communist, Libertarian, or a Republican. I am a conservative in my politics. As noted in the Mayflower Compact by this country's founders I believe God played a distinctive role in America's beginning:
"In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith,
Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.
In Witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord, King James of England, France and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domini, 1620."
I have often heard from some pastors that politics should be left out of our discourse with unbelievers. I agree with that because we should be proclaiming the Gospel before anything else. However, politics is such a heavy influence in everything around us that it is sometimes impossible to not mention it. Everybody will agree that abortion is a political issue to a degree. Are Christians not supposed to mention that abortion is murder and God's wrath is coming because of this? Evolution is the greatest lie and myth in mankind's history and it needs to be exposed because it attacks the very foundation of the Bible. To show how evolutionary scientists lie to promote their godless agenda Global Warming is often brought as a prime example of their methods.
Global Warming (Cap and Trade) is a key political issue used by Democrats, Socialists, Progressives, Marxists, and Communists to further government's control over its people and restrict our freedoms while redistributing the wealth.
Politics plays a prominent role in the far left liberal Main Stream Media, newspapers, magazines, and every other anti-God institution that tries to remove anything decent from our society and promote every form of debauchery. Should not we as Christians expose these tactics to those oblivious to these devious methods of indoctrination?
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
I believe the strongest scripture for the marginal use of using political arguments to destroy ungodly positions is found in 2 Corinthians:
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled."
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
We are to commanded to cast down "arguments" and everything that "exalts itself against the knowledge of God." Evolution, Abortion, Global Warming, Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism, and The Democratic Party all do this.
"They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy."
Although I only mention politics in a few areas, I believe it is our duty as Christians to expose the lies and methods of those who are corrupting our children through; schools, evolution, television, movies, and every other lewd and debased form of entertainment to drive our children away from God and any sense of morals.
"At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!"
You can be sure that Satan and his minions will try to change the laws in America to persecute Christians and promote Humanistic Ideals. You can see it all around us, can't you? In Islamic countries if a Christian tries to witness to a Muslim they will be arrested. You can't even bring a Bible into Saudi Arabia.
You don't think things like that can happen in America? If we keep letting Democrats, Socialists, Progressives, Marxists, and Communists get their way and passing insane laws it soon will.
"He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time,"
I heard a saying that is pretty much true. Republicans today are like the Democrats of old and Democrats today are like Socialists. Our country is heading for Marxism, Socialism, etc., and if it wasn't for our Constitution restraining our corrupt politicians America would have long ago become a Marxist utopia.
I came across a very informative comment regarding the issues I have brought up:
"Lincoln started the process of getting Black people removed from their chains. Obama and the Democrats are busily forging new chains.
As a Black male who is a Libertarian and a constitutional Conservative, some people think I am an extremist. Anyone voting Democrat is a fool!
Evidence? So called 'progressives' never look at the destruction their great theories actually cause in reality. They only claim there was opposition or it was improperly implemented (shut up and give me more money)."
God is in control, He still reigns! Whatever happens, His Will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
"And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he (God) doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?"
Open your eyes, propaganda rules the affairs of sinful man. Don't believe what you hear, investigate for yourself. Your professor, teacher, mom, dad, sister, brother, children, government, mentor, pastor, priest, rabbi, iman, friends, uncle, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, or anybody else that you idolize will not be there to save you. You alone are responsible for what you believe.
"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire," Revelation 20:11-15
If you persist in your arrogance and unbelief you will be deluded as judgement and you will believe any lie to soothe your sinful ways. There is a choice for you today; right or wrong, light or dark, and good or evil. God gave you a free will to worship Him or not, the choice is yours.
"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
