In defense of myself I would like to offer this disclaimer. Although I am a registered Republican I no longer share the values of the Republican Party. I am not one of their hacks and I have not been a consumer of the “Democrat bad…Republican good” kool-aid dispensed by most conservative talk radio hosts. I don’t support either “party.” But I am a realist. Either the Republicans or the Democrats will be in power come January 2013.
Before I get too far into this writing I want to give credit to John MacArthur for prompting me to put onto paper what I, and obviously he, have been thinking for the past month. I believe we would both agree that the inspiration of this writing, and his sermon, has come directly from the Holy Spirit. What I am offering today is not plagiarism, but merely an elucidation of a youtube video of a recent sermon by MacArthur. You can listen to his sermon here. It is only 4 minutes.
I do believe both political parties are under the control of The Evil One…but to say that there is no difference in the two parties would be untruthful. Neither party honors God. But one party hates him. Openly. It is towards them today that I wish to squirt my ink.
I come from a long line of Democrats. I was raised Catholic, my father was a unionized factory worker, and there was very little knowledge of God in my family. That does not mean we were not raised in church because we were. My mother, a “protestant” had to pledge to raise her children in the Catholic tradition in order for the marriage to take place. She was faithful to that, and my father dutifully took their five children to Mass. Please…before you attack…this is not an indictment of Catholicism. It is merely MY experience on my journey to Christ. One can be religious and not have a relationship with the Lord.
I was raised in a religion, but I had no knowledge of the Savior. I met him in 1988. It changed everything about my life. Today I consider myself a “Christocrat.” I vote the Bible. It is hard to find Biblical values in either party. Christians are deceived. They do not understand that much of the war on Christianity is being waged by the Republican Establishment.
Have you noticed how much they hate Todd Akin…and Sarah Palin…and especially “those right-wing pro-lifers?” Have you noticed how the Tea Party has been co-opted by the Party bosses? I believe the Tea Party has struggled because they have attached their horse to the Constitutional wagon…rather than to the Bible. But that is a commentary for another day. Today, I would like to aim my keyboard at God-fearing Democrats…like my late father. Wake up! Your party is controlled by “haters of God.” They claim to represent God, the Democrats do…but not the One True God. They worship the god of diversity, or tolerance, or inclusion, or self…but they hate Jesus.
I’ll say it more clearly. The Democrat Party leadership worships a false, universal god. They hate the God of the Bible. They love everything the Bible hates. President Obama is a lot like I used to be. I went to church, called myself a Christian, but I had never met the Savior. Like so many today, I tried to represent the views of a God I did not know. Because I didn’t know Him, I didn’t know His Ways. Yet, I thought I was a “Christian.” The only Scripture I knew was “live and let live”…except that isn’t in the Bible. I thought “liberty” meant “license”…the right to do whatever I wanted. Meeting the Savior changed all of that for me. It helped me understand the “why” to all of His rules. God’s precepts are protective, not punitive. I now understand what I could not understand before.
The First Chapter of Romans is devastating to the God-haters. It is a treatise on the degradation of the culture. I plead with you to take a moment and read the link I provided. It is a picture of a rotting society. And it is the platform of the Democratic Party. They support in their platform everything Paul speaks against in Romans. The Democratic Party supports the god of “self.” Here is their official platform. Read it for yourself.
The Democratic Party is leading America towards God’s wrath. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness," The Democrat Party supports what God hates. Complete abortion-freedom paid for by government funds. By killing an unborn child they show that they are “without natural affection.” It is not natural for a mother to not love her unborn child. A baby has to die because a woman has a choice? They serve the god of self. They support not only the recognition of, but special treatment for homosexuals. “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
Although they eventually recanted, they removed the name of God from their platform. “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge…haters of God.” The platform supports the belief that man is wiser than God. “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” Yep. “Their foolish heart was darkened.”
The consequences of being ruled by those with darkened hearts have been devastating to America. According to Romans 13 the purpose of government is to punish evil and reward the good. “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.” Really? Why are so many good people afraid of our government? But what happens if the rulers cannot determine good from evil? Or worse yet…”call evil good and good evil.” What if they believe behavior that results in death is “good”, but defenders of life are “evil?”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” No wonder there is so much woe in America.
The first sign of judgment on a nation is God’s abandonment. “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind…” America is under judgment. How do I know? Just look at our citizens. “Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful..”
The Republicans are a mess. They offer very little alternative. But we must start with the repudiation of a Party that openly supports what the Lord opposes. Wake up God- fearing Democrat voters. This election is not about Obama, or the economy, or debt, or George Bush. This is about the repudiation of Satan’s Party Platform.
Are you a Democrat or a Christian? A Christian cannot vote for Satan’s agenda. I believe you will be held accountable for who you support with your vote. Think deeply about Paul’s warning at the conclusion of Romans 1. “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
To permit is to participate. To vote for is to support. “Have no pleasure in them that do them.” Do you vote Biblical values or Union values? It is the morality, stupid!!
Let’s take out Satan’s Party Platform. Let’s expose one party at a time. We can deal with the phony Republicans after this election.
