Something that often bothers me is the fact that the MSM will sometimes have an anti-Trump, or generally an anti-America pastor who takes the Word of God and says it teaches things it outright does not teach. One example of this is whenever the issue of immigration is brought up and an anti-Trump pastor will try and shame the President and anyone who agrees with him for trying to “separate families at the border” or simply for not letting these people break our laws (not that they ever phrase it that way).
And it always leaves me rather perplexed that anyone who claims to have faith in the Lord and who claims to be a practicing Christian, even a pastor of a church, would ever go with whatever the Left stands for, considering what they stand for is often anti-Christian.
I believe the answer here is that said people are not truly Christian. They take advantage of the Word of God, the ultimate authority over anything, and interpret it to say what it very much does not say.
Returning to the topic of immigration, Leftist preachers are all too happy to jump at the verses where the Lord explicitly tells the Jewish people to allow for strangers to sojourn in their land, to not do them any wrong, to love them as yourself because the Jewish people were themselves strangers in the land of Egypt, but will completely ignore the fact that God also demands sojourners to obey the laws of the land of Israel and ought to be punished for breaking it, as would any Jew be punished for doing the same.
It’s one thing to welcome immigrants into our country, it’s another to be taken advantage of by people who break the law and demand we make changes to our system to accommodate them. One is fair and righteous and the other is the exact opposite.
So when the Democrat Party hires anti-Trump pastors and preachers who spew this sort of nonsense about accepting and welcoming such law-breakers and leeches in an effort to draw the evangelical vote away from Trump, I can’t help but laugh. The Party of Satan is trying to garner evangelical votes?
Actually, that makes an awful lot of sense. Satan loves it when Christians stray from the path of God, begin challenging Him and questioning Him, and ultimately renounce Him. Why would the Democrats, who espouse outright Satanic beliefs of infanticide and utter slavery over people, be any different?
I recently read an article from Michael Wear, a man who directed religious outreach for the Obama campaign in 2012, who warned 2020 Democrat candidates not to assume their extreme positions on abortion were mainstream in any way, shape, manner or form. That even Democrat voters aren’t quite that extreme about that stuff and if they continue to embrace their positions, they give good reason for Trump to call them out on their desire to execute babies (and he is right to do so, since that is exactly what they are doing).
But not a single one of them is willing to back off on that issue and maybe allow for some amount of restriction (something the vast majority of Americans want). The reason for this is multifaceted. First, the Leftist media, Hollywood and Twitter extremists will castigate them and rip them to shreds for letting off the gas on this issue. If they appear to be in any way compromising, they essentially become “owners of women’s bodies”. And while the far-Left is not the majority, by far, they are very loud and their megaphones are turned up even louder by social media, who are also extremists in their own right.
Secondly and finally, they are children of Satan, not of God. They have spent the better part of the last century trying to diminish the impact of Christianity and the Lord. Everything from banning God in the classroom to commercializing Christmas (and policing speech by forcing a switch to “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”) to removing God from the 2012 DNC platform and most recently, getting rid of “so help me God” from U.S. House Committee oaths earlier in the year has been a rather open attack and war against God and Christianity in America.
The 6th Commandment says “You shall not murder”. When a human fetus is brutally separated from his or her mother and the life that was growing inside that womb is eliminated, what other thing can we possibly call that apart from murder? And yet, this is the position the Left holds: kill the babies that are unwanted by the mother, regardless of anything else. A father wishes to save his child? Doesn’t matter if the mother doesn’t want the child. A mentally slow woman wishes to have a child? Doesn’t matter if the judicial system doesn’t think she is fit for motherhood and the most reasonable and logical course of action would be abortion.
Not one 2020 Democrat knows God. Even the gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana doesn’t know Him despite what he might say. All of them defy the Lord openly, hate Him vehemently, and seek to force that way of thinking on everyone else. The only Christian that would be willing to vote for them is a Christian that is absolutely not paying attention to the world around them at all or someone who isn’t a Christian at all, just says he is outwardly.
That’s not to say they can’t be changed by the Lord should He choose to. I used to be rather socially liberal about some things (particularly homosexuality and gay marriage) and would still call myself a Christian at the time. But by no means was I actually a good or knowledgeable Christian. Jesus was still my Lord and Savior at the time (still is, don’t misunderstand) and the Holy Spirit fully entered my heart, but my Christianity was in its infancy. I did not, at the time, understand why God forbade this or that, just knew that He did and wondered why. But I ultimately understood why He forbids these things: they are sinful and the Lord can’t stand even the sight of sin.
I used to think Man was naturally good until I understood that he absolutely is not. So Christianity is most certainly a journey not only of the soul, but of the mind. I say this because there may be some people out there who might take offense at being told they were not Christian who might disagree with SOME of the things I am saying. But the truth is that true Christians will abhor abortion, hate law-breakers and understand that while Trump isn’t perfect (obviously, since Jesus is the only One who is perfect), he is far closer to someone like King David (sins and all), who loved the Lord, than someone like Stalin, who hated the God he claimed not to believe in.
When looking at the Democrat field, and most Democrats in general, even the ones not running for President, I see the type of Stalinist bigots who would love nothing more than to send people like us to the gulags. No true Christian would support anything the Democrats have been supporting recently. Which is why I hang my head in shame whenever I read that some churches gave illegals sanctuary prior to ICE raids or that some Christians hate the fact that a Virginia pastor actually had the audacity to pray for the President. Such people are not Christians, in reality.
They may call themselves that and show outward expressions of faith, but the Lord is not in their hearts.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”
