TW Editor’s Note: For the record I believe “Friends Don’t Let Christians ‘BE’ Republicans Either.” Who we are supposed to be as Christians is MORE AND MORE LIKE CHRIST. I came close to deleting this but instead I urge you to consider that while all the things spoken of by the author of this article might be correct the end result of writing, and having people read, this article will not be the redemption of any Democrats. Rather the result will be to push more into the corner to fight for their positions. Weather the author of the article has the intent or not he will further divide Americas and yes Christians. If that is indeed his goal he will succeed, but hopefully not for the readers of TennesseeWatchman.com. The truth is while the issues mentioned below do not originate with the GOP they are maintained by Republicans weather the Democrats are in power or not. Is Obamacare gone? Has “Planned Parenthood” been defunded? Have the corrupt judges who have been consistently NOT been operating “in good behavior” still holding court in spite of the Constitution’s requirement that they be impeached? Did you know YOUR CONGRESSMAN is 100% at fault for the aforementioned failure to impeach? Did you know it only takes ONE congressman to file articles of impeachment? That means your congressman could have done it and Congress would have been REQUIRED to hold an investigation and send their finding to the Senate. It is time to STOP BEATING OUR CHESTS and admit we have been HYPOCRITES. [Mike Warner, Editor, TennesseeWatchman.com]
The following article got me banned from a so-called “Christian Theology and Debate Group” on Facebook. Who knew it was run by leftists? I guess that means I’m doing something right.
I have, for many years, been referring to “christian” Democrats as heretics.
I believe this phraseology to be accurate and have written at some length on the subject in my articles entitled The Heresy of the Christian Democrat, Who are Our Enemies, God’s Mercy or a Tyrants Chains and the hyperbolically (sort of) titled Hillary Clinton: Satanic High Priestess.
However, I find myself in need of continuous prayerful affirmation of my position and I imagine many of you struggle similarly. The spirit that drives the liberal bleeding heart narrative is powerful.
“Helping the poor” is the cheese in the rat trap of liberal progressivisms spiritual wickedness. Christ was compassionate, Christ said help the poor, Christ said to care for the least of these. All of these things are irrefutable. But, they are not the entirety of our Christian experience.
The liberal “christian” Democrat is fond of throwing out the portions of scripture that doesn’t fit their narrative and in reaffirming my position that they are heretics I have been very cautious not to do the same.
When asked what the greatest commandment was Jesus said:
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
Nowhere does Jesus say:
“Go forth and rid the world of poor and needy persons”
“Render to Caesar what is Caesars so that Caesar can help rid the world of the poor and needy persons”
” Murder unborn children; worship false gods, such as allah; appoint ministers given over to sexual perversion; ignore the teachings of Paul; call my Word fallible; set government up as a benevolent god; steal from your neighbor in the forms of wealth redistribution; blaspheme the Holy Ghost by stating that it is, in fact, medicine, science, and the government that controls the lives of men and not the desires of a compassionate God, or crucify me afresh by stating that there is no need to be forgiven of your sins.”
Godly, Christian charity is incumbent on the individual. Government mandated charity is the first step on the slippery-slope of socialistic, communistic tyranny. We made that first step almost 100 years ago with Social Security.
The ways in which Democrats break from sound teaching are myriad and I won’t enumerate each and every one of them here for the sake of brevity, but I encourage the reader to break down the 10 commandments, the Democrat agenda violates all 10 and beyond.
Liberal progressive “christianity” is a lie from the pits of hell wrapped up with a tidy pink bow of “love”.
“Love is Love!”
“God is Love!” and He says sin is sin and it should be named and repented of.
The lie of the “christian” left is perhaps the most dangerous twisting of sound doctrine that I have ever experienced, and in my opinion is very similar to the type of deception the Antichrist will use to deceive the world.
Islam and Christianity are already being combined in the mission field across the world. Muslims are proselytizing with billboards, tracts and street-walking evangelists the way Christians used to. It is against school policy for Christians to pray or say the pledge of allegiance, but it is not against school policy to teach Islam and allow the Muslim students to break for prayer.
But, Islam hates Jews, Christians and gays, you say. How can they be aligned with the Democrats who are have a large contingent of Jews and gays?
This is a question I had been asking myself for some time and the answer is actually plain as day. Democrats, American Muslims, refugees, the LGBT community and now “Vegan ISIS” aka the AntiFa, have one thing in common that makes them allies against white, Christian, colonialist American pigs.
Victimhood. In their psyches, they are all victims and we are their oppressors.
Everything Islam believes flies in the face of everything a born-again Christian believes, yet they find common ground with Democrats, that should scare you. There is an ungodly cabal of Muslims in the American Governmental system and I have heard it said when the total population reaches 10-12% what was once known as America will be lost.
There is a reason that we are not mentioned in the End Times and it could quite possibly be that America no longer exists.Many have pontificated that the US could be absorbed by the UN by then or rendered financially irrelevant by Chinese debt collection.
The purpose of this piece, however, is not to further conspiratorial mumbo-jumbo of which we cannot know the validity, but to highlight that which God’s Word tells us is true.
Radical Islams preferred method of executing infidels is beheading.
“Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also, I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God (the Bible) and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4 ESV)
I know that many of my friends and followers on Facebook have family that are self-proclaimed “christian” Democrats. God will bless them for helping the poor, but there is so much more to the Gospel of Jesus Christ than that.
If we hold to the tenets of what Jesus Christ himself said the greatest commandment is, a Christian can in no way, shape or form ever align themselves with a teaching that enables the persecution of the church ie,; Islam. Let alone the murdering of the unborn, gay marriage, etc, etc listed above.
To reiterate the first half of that greatest commandment.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:29
Be kind to your neighbor, regardless of their race, color, religion or creed and you have fulfilled the second half of the “Greatest Commandment”
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”
The heresy of the “christian” Democrat is not a trifling matter, it is not a joke, it is not a small thing that we can agree to disagree on, like full immersion Baptism or the length of shirt sleeves; this is a major offensive by hellbound demonic hierarchies to deceive and divide even God’s elect.
If your sister is falling for the trap, having smelled the sweet savor of the “helping the poor ‘cheese’” warn her; pull her back. I know it smells good, but it is rotten inside!
If your brother has swallowed the lie, tell him.
If your father has gone astray, go after him.
If your mother has decided she no longer cares about the 3000 unborn that are murdered everyday, as long as the drunken hobo gets a cheeseburger, you need to have a sit-down.
“If your brother sins against you, go and rebuke him in private. If he listens to you, you have won your brother. Matthew 18:15
I know many of you don’t want to hear what comes next, so I will pose it as a question.
What do you do with your biological relatives that will not repent, will not heed the Word of God and insist on continuing on in a perverted Gospel and indeed are spreading said perverted Gospel believing they are doing God’s work?
My wife and I have been blessed in that most of our family and close friends have not fallen into this trap, with notable exceptions, who long ago stopped following me on Facebook and sadly, will never read this.
It is what it is.
When Christ himself hung on the cross, only John was there. When He was telling the meek they would inherit the earth and handing out free bread and fish there was 5000.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
[Jesus] While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brother stood outside, asking to speak to him.
But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12-46-50
In Luke 9:60 Jesus said unto him,
Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
Sadly, we must be willing to let the non-believer and the heretic depart, even if the same blood runs through our veins.
