The special election that happened recently in Pennsylvania for its 18th district had GOP candidate saying that Democrats were energized by a hatred for the country, the President and God…
No one in their right mind is going to say that they hate God. But pause for a minute. Let’s pop the hood on the tension that exists in our culture right now and see what it is that characterizes the lines that are being drawn every day with ever increasing vitriol and passion.
If you fly the banner of the Democrat party, you, by default, are siding with a party that champions Partial Birth Abortion, Same Sex Marriage and the Doctrine of Entitlement, correct?
Partial Birth Abortion. Granted it’s an extreme version of a “woman’s right,” but it still falls under the category of abortion and that is something the Democrat party supports. According to Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez, “…all Democratic political candidates must be 100 percent pro-abortion, or, as he put it, ‘pro-choice.’”
Same Sex Marriage. Every one has the right to be happy. If an individual feels romantically drawn to a person of the same gender, that is their choice and it needs to be honored. Not just tolerated. It has to be honored. Hillary Clinton said before the United Nations: “Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal, or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”
The Doctrine of Entitlement. Your future is restricted by virtue of any one of a number of factors including racism, poverty and those who would impose their moral preferences on you in a way that is aggressive and therefore destructive. And not just in the present. Our country is guilty of generations worth of injustice and bigotry and the fallout translates to whole people groups who rate reparations and special consideration.
Now, this isn’t the whole of the Democrat platform, but we’re on the same page – we’re reading from the same piece of music. I’m not coloring outside the lines…
Now, let’s go through these one at a time.
Abortion. You’re ending the life of the child that’s growing within you because you don’t want the responsibility of raising a child. You argue that it’s your body and therefore your “right” to terminate your pregnancy.
You have the right to say “No” to being intimate with a man. You don’t have the right to end the life of another human being. It is not a random organ that you’re destroying. An abortion doesn’t remove your liver. An abortion kills the child that depends on you for its life and you’re destroying it.
You know, the God you love and revere.
Everyone has the right to be happy. After all, it says so in our Declaration of Independence: “…life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
But who gave you those rights? According to Tom Jefferson, God gave you those rights. But that’s where it gets a little twisty. Because He also gave you some moral guidelines and you see homosexuality addressed specifically in both the Old and New Testaments.
Detestable. That’s how God refers to homosexuality in the book of Leviticus. You can also read about it in Romans 1:27.
As far as “entitlement” goes, the fundamental flaw in the Democrat platform is the way in which it glosses over incriminating statistics such as the High School dropout rate and children born out of wedlock within the black community. However economic disparity is obviously precipitated by a such dynamics, the battlecry is “institutional racism” and other such mantras.
Scripture says if you don’t work, you don’t eat (2 Thess 3:10). If you’re going to quit High School and then insist that you’re worthy of some kind of assistance because of an institution that was ended at the expense of 360,000 caucasians who fought and died as part of the Union Army, you’re not asserting racism as a topic, you’re attempting to use it as a tactic.
You are responsible for your actions. On Judgment Day, it says in Romans 2:6, “God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” You will not answer for what has been done to you or what has been said about you. You will answer for what you did and what you chose. Insisting that your path was hampered doesn’t change the fact that you’re still responsible for your path. You also see that illustrated in the parable of the talents in the book of Matthew.
But that’s not consistent with the Democrat platform where the emphasis is on systemic flaws, cultural hardships and anything else that can be shaped into a credible sounding argument. Never mind the Absolute of God’s law or the Resources He makes available.
Do you smell that?
At every turn, on every topic, you want to maintain a conviction that is contrary to Scripture. You use words like “social justice” and “compassion,” but in the absence of godly wisdom, justice is nothing more than favoritism, compassion is a mere subsidy and love is a form of manipulation.
You may not hate the god you allow into the halls of your mentality, but that god isn’t the One Who authored the Bible or crafted the universe. That god is the host of the heaven referenced in the musical “Spring Awakening” where all will be forgiven.
No, you’re right. You don’t hate your god.
But you have very little patience or time for the God Who condemns the very behaviors you want to insist are noble. Don’t kid yourself into thinking you’re fooling Him…
…or anybody else.
