Let me preface my remarks today with a simple formula. I can’t insert the “is not equal to” symbol you learned in the 5th grade… BUT…
- Christian is not synonymous with Republican
- Republican is not synonymous with Christian.
Now, YES… a VAST MAJORITY of American Born Again Christians flock to the Republican party. And politicians are quick to try to either A). support Israel while running for office or b). talk either about God, prayer, or maybe a lame quote from the Bible. note they’ll never quote something like John 3:3!
Most politicians stop the pretense as soon as they’re in office. Um… except the Donald. It seems he’s conducting Bible studies in the White House. right in the Oval Office. Guess what? I could be very wrong, but I think he won the election. And he’s carrying on far past the point where everyone else drops the pretense!
But here’s the flipside – there’s a political party who has seemed to make it a priority to legislate out of existence Christianity within America. And a lot of Christians STILL are part of that Party.
The Republican party pushed a member of a cult as a candidate for President, and suddenly Franklin Graham and countless others are rushing to embrace anyone who’s ever even driven PAST Salt Lake City as a fellow Christian.
No, let’s get our heads clear. We test everything by the word of God. Even political expediency. If your party routinely opposes God, Christianity, and the Bible, and exalts every manner of sin – as a Christian, you have only one response. Leave that party. Vote with your feet.
If your party attempts to push a member of a cult as President, then click on “other” at the ballot station and manually type in the name of another Candidate! The Republicans would have been astounded if they’d pushed a Mormon, only to find that a candidate who’d not gotten the nomination found himself President the following morning!
We as Christians need to send warnings to Washington DC – we matter. And we will not stand for any attempt to silence Christians, or to stand against the Bible. Here’s our answer to Pelosi Democrats and their agendas… we pull every Christian voter out of the Democratic party. Which almost happened last November.
If they lose enough elections, they’ll figure it out, and boot the Pelosi-ites out of office. That’s how we answer Washington. We vote. And at this point, you have to vote against things sometimes.
We also send a clear message to the Republican party, which I think they heard loud and clear – no moderate Republicans. No Liberal Republicans. High ye away to the democrats, if that’s ye platforme!
STAND for the Bible. Stand for God. Vote according to those factors, and sooner or later, the politicians get it.
And stop parroting political expediency. Ye are not your own, and ye were bought with a price. Not by politics, but by the Son of Man.
