As a Christian, I must question my moral compass from time to time. Lately, events in America are trying to say the least and give us cause to reflect on who and what we are. Clearly, the world has flipped upside down – where right is wrong, and wrong is right.
I’m sure in history, things have been worse. In fact, one example comes to mind. The Bible story about Sodom and Gomorrah. We seem to be similar in too many ways. That was the reason God destroyed the place and everything in it.
I reflected on how I seem to hate Democrats. I don’t want to hate anyone – life is too short for that emotion. So, maybe despise is a better word. I despise the actions of the leadership in our nation, and I despise the support they receive from nearly half the population.
We’re told to love our neighbor as ourselves. But the good book also says God hates lies and liars, hates murder, and He wants us to keep the Sabbath day holy.
When I look at the platform, legislation, and actions of Democrats, they are against most all of God’s commands. They are demonizing anything Christian. They murder babies in the womb. They lie incessantly. They promote same-sex marriage and champion LBGT as they legislate in favor of perversion of all that is good in our society.
Their anti-prayer stance in school and removing the Ten Commandments from school and the public square should have given us more than cause for concern. It should have moved us to action. Systematically our elected officials are desecrating everything that made this country great. One only needs to watch the evening news to see the result of their support and encouragement of lawlessness. Or the tearing down of historical statues, rioting, looting, and murder. They hold sacred only their determined move to secularizing our society. THAT fundamentally changes our country founded on Judeo-Christian values.
I’m sure you have guessed I’m one of those Christian people who are getting in the way of the progressive socialist left wing’s agenda. They are the power elite who are pushing for a ‘one-world government’ and total control of all inhabitants of planet earth.
Okay, so you’d have to conclude that by default, I must hate Democrats. You may be right because they hate everything that I hold dear. The Democrat party is incompatible with my faith, my country, my heritage, and indeed America’s heritage.
Free will was given to us by our creator, and we make choices each day that define us. It is up to every individual to choose what to support – Good or evil. And that means choosing to support the Democrat platform that is diametrically opposed to God’s commandments or to support the opposite of what they stand for.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord, and that means supporting God’s will for our lives. Choose wisely, Pilgrim.
