I saw a bumper sticker on a car that said “Democrat and Christian.”
I just about drove off the road.
I will take to task any Christian who stands as a Democrat today. I suppose like “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) there could be a “DINO” but what would be the point? To believe that remaining a Democrat (as a Christian) will provide the opportunity to change the party from within is a worthy idea, but that’s all it is: An idea, a wish, a dream. The reality is the Democratic Party is so far left of “ethical soundness” and “rational public policy” it seems unreasonable to expect any change.
Now the DNC has made a complete turning away of all things religious and by doing so denies the fact that the Constitution was written to include the Biblical concepts of Life, Liberty, and the Providential Care of God.
In a summer meeting The Democratic Party passed a resolution that condemns religious affiliation and supports and praises the “religiously unaffiliated“: (emphasis added)
“WHEREAS, those most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of ‘religious liberty,’ to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities.
“BE IT RESOLVED, that the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE recognizes: 1. The value, ethical soundness, and importance of the religiously unaffiliated demographic, a group of Americans who contribute in innumerable ways to the arts, sciences, medicine, business, law, the military, their communities, the success of the Party and prosperity of the Nation; and 2. That religiously unaffiliated Americans are a group that, as much as any other, advocates for rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values and should be represented, included, and heard by the Party.”
Any Christian who sides with a political faction that supports abortion, same-sex marriage, and “humanistic values” is suffering from deception and needs to re-evaluate their salvation experience.
That is not open to debate with God. Whether you call yourself Democrat or Republican or Independent or Libertarian or whatever….you support and follow HIM, or you don’t.
