VOTING. Today is Election Day. But the problem is who IS NOT VOTING: PASTORS.
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” (Mark 13:22, KJV)
Interesting that even the elect, PASTORS and such, are so deceived by their own lofty ministries and the people that support them, that they as so above VOTING? It would seem they have made themselves equal to God.
Entirely too many Evangelical Pastors are not voting. Being in the Pastorate, one would think that they would be the shining example that they are called to be, but NOT SO. Self-martyred Pastors are put themselves on the Cross siting their many works being more than sufficient than dirtying themselves at a voting station.
Our country was built by a bunch of people that had enough of organized religion. They came here and FOUGHT to keep religious freedom, among others. A Pastor should be an expected example of keeping our freedoms free instead of this gnostic way of showing the hem of their garments. How did this debacle happen? PRIDE.
Is there so great a tribulation that these Pastors can easily ignore a civic duty that people died for? How dare they allow others that are not like-minded to decide the fate of those that WANT to further the cause of Christ!
The Pharisaical way of thinking is to keep the flock dumb and the Elect educated. The Body of Christ is made of many members, some that follow and some that lead. There is no greater a privilege than to lead and teach others in the way of the LORD. This is an office that is SACRED and revered, and should be used for the fullness of GOD, not self.
Precious Pastors: Lead your people in the way of the LORD and not your agenda.
Now, GO VOTE.
Being on Facebook I see a lot of profiles of prospective ‘friends’. I go right to their political and religious views to see what they’re really made of. Anyone can talk the talk but what is the basis of what you really believe?
One of the most confusing combinations is the Democrat Christian. I wish you could see me shaking my head and drawing in a long, deep, troubling breath. Maybe 50 or more years ago the Democrat Christian was not only possible but the norm, especially in the South. That was before Roe v Wade and the political blunder of legalized on-demand abortion. But now the Democrat Christian is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. You can’t have it both ways. Their view on Life is a bit cloudy.
The story of Barack Obama should be your warning shot. He believes himself to be a Christian but puts in bloated ideology within legislation that does not protect Life at any age or gestation. That being said, we are seeing more Democrat Christians running for office and expecting Conservatives to give them a second look because of their Christianity. Unfortunately, Christianity can be as ambiguous as political views. Every Christian that is part of secularism of any kind has their own agenda with their own beliefs – whatever benefits them, not the Kingdom.
The abortion agenda is forefront and will weed out the men from the boys in the political realm. You cannot be a Christian and a Democrat – you are either prolife from natural conception to natural death or you are anti-Life, period. There are no maybes or what ifs when it comes to Life.
Truly, there is only one reason a person can be a Democrat Christian: to get a leg up financially, politically and to be considered equal in the eyes of the government regarding everything from gay marriage to sharia law.
The lives of millions of children are in the balance. Vote Pro Life, not pro YOU.
