Christian Beliefs 101

Will All Christian Democrats Go To Hell?

It’s perfectly okay to kill babies in the womb, to take prayer out of school, to remove God from many aspects of life in America, to disrespect God openly in life, art, movies, etc. and just head on up to heaven after you die —NOT!

Don’t worry, there will be plenty of Christian Republican there as well; in addition to all those people that think they are Christians but don’t have a clue that they are not (Mark 16:17, Matthew 7:14, and Matthew 7:21). Not even close. I don’t vote, never have. I have alway believed that my citizenship was in heaven and I was just passing through this world. Where would I ever get such an idea?

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. —Philippians 3:25

Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather correct them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. —Ephesians 5:11-12

Plead ignorance at the Great White Throne Judgment – maybe that will work

You can’t honestly believe for one moment that a Democrat who professes to be a Bible-believing Christian is actually going to make into heaven, while also professing to be part of a group that believes that murdering innocent babies in the womb is a constitutional right. I realize that in today’s world there are exceptions for just about everything. So a possible exception for Christian Democrats who could conceivably make it into heaven might include Christian Democrats that aren’t aware of what their Democratic Party Platform,  and various other Democratic groups and leaders, actually stand for. Take the Democrats in Virginia who want to allow abortion up until labor, and after birth. Yes, I said after birth. Is that still technically an abortion. NO! It’s called murder; even by Democrat standards is called murder. (Democrats Overplay Their Hand on Abortion) Professing Christianity and belonging to a group that believes in the murder of innocent babies in the womb is kind of like saying you are a Satanist, but that you don’t really believe all that Satan stuff (and I’m sure that some do). If you allege yourself to be a Bible-believing Democratic Christian you should practice the following words in front of a mirror. It starts with, “But I didn’t know.” That way when you stand at the Great White Throne judgment you’ll be ready to answer. It won’t do you any good at that point, but at least you will be prepared —kind of.

If you put on a mask and go to a rally, or go up and down the street with other people shouting, screaming and hollering, one thing or another, you can’t say, when you are questioned on your conduct, that you were just out for a walk with some like-minded folks —you’re a protester. It’s not just what you say, it’s also the company you keep.

Can two walk together unless they are in agreement? —Amos 3:3

The above scripture means that you can’t, or certainly shouldn’t, associate with people unless you are of the same mind. No matter what you tell yourself, or how you justify it.

How many friends do you have that are murderers?

If you are the kind of Bible-believing Christian who believes that abortion is truly murder; then how can you have friends that believe murder is okay? That would, of course, be your Democratic Christian friends, some Republicans as well, and then let’s not forget about all your unbelieving friends. So, then you may start thinking, or reasoning, ‘Well, killing an unborn baby isn’t really murder, it’s just kind of like murder.’ Either it is or it isn’t, unless you allow yourself to be deceived by the Devils’ reasoning, which is, ‘It’s just one bite, it’ll be okay.’ Whatever, and I mean whatever, your justification is for killing an unborn baby in the womb, it’s murder.

How many people do you know that are in the abortion industry, in any fashion; whether it be a doctor, nurse, abortion clinic worker, advertising company employee, Planned Parenthood employee, and so on? And you as a true Bible-believing follower of Jesus can still be friends with them? I’m sure they are very nice people, with the exception that they believe murdering unborn babies is okay. You work with these people, they live next door to you, you go to church with these people, you send your children to activities with the children of these people, you watch television that features and supports these people, you go to movies that are made by these people, the sports industry is overrun with these people, corporate America bows down to these people; and you have no problem associating with people who believe it is okay to murder innocent children in the womb. If that is you, then in the world of the Bible, we would call you a hypocrite.

Do not be unequally yoked togehter with unbelivers. For what fellowship does righteousness have with unrighteousness. —2 Corinthians 6:14

I have the solution to how to prevent true Bible-believing Christians from becoming friends with the unsaved

The solution involves identifying ourselves by what we believe, not just by giving our name. You shouldn’t even assume that your church is filled with true Bible-believing, like-minded believers. So instead of just saying your name when you meet someone, you would also give that person a one or two sentence statement about your most basic religious belief. What a novel concept. This would take the guesswork out of trying to figure out what someone actually believes and help with the decision to either become their friend, associate with them, or avoid them altogether. It would go something like this: ‘Hi, I’m Bob, and I believe that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I also believe every word that God said in the Bible and I try to follow those words as best I know how.’ Then there is Larry. Larry introduces himself and says, ‘Hi, I’m Larry. I’m a Democratic Christian. I believe in Jesus and that unwanted babies in the womb can be murdered if they are really unwanted. After all, women have the right to choose.’ And then there is Tom. Tom introduces himself and says, ‘Hi, I’m Tom. I don’t believe in any of that Bible nonsense. There is no God, just look around the world, any rational person can see that there is no God.’ This would make the Christian walk a little bit easier, for real believers anyway, because we could avoid some of the relationships that would serve only to drag us down. And we would be able to more easily identify those people who do not share our biblical values because we, as believers, don’t want to associate with anyone who is being deceived by the Devil.

We know that we are of God and the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one. —1 John 5:19

God gave us the Holy Spirit who dwells inside of us, and because of that we also have the ability to exercise spiritual discernment. Now, that is clearly not working in most professing Christians which begs the question; ‘are these professing Christians actually born-again believers?’ If they are, and I won’t say they aren’t, but if they are, then why aren’t they exercising that ability with their choice of friends and associations. Maybe they just don’t know any better, or maybe they are what is referred to as ‘baby Christians’ and they haven’t read, or their preacher hasn’t gotten to, that sermon yet. Either way it’s time to grow up.  The world, for Christians, is not getting any less complicated, and without the exercise of spiritual discernment you will not be able to stand against all the wiles of the Devil. And how do we do that, you ask?

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, aginst the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. Therefore take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your belt fastened with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and having your feet bound with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God praying always with all prayer and requests in the Spirit, and watching with all perseverance and petition for all saints. —Ephesians 6:11-18

Didn’t God say that he knows people even before He formed them in the womb?

Let’s look at the abortion issue another way. Tens of millions of babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade in 1973, and most of them were black Americans. This primarily has been the result of the Democratic Party’s belief in the right of a woman to have an abortion, I’m sorry, to choose. Christians believe, well, Bible-believing Christians believe, that abortion, or the killing of the unborn, is murder. The Bible has a really interesting verse in the book of Jeremiah relating to the involvement of God in the process of a baby growing in the womb.

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.—Jeremiah 1:5

That should be the one verse in the Bible that does it for any Christian believing in abortion. Just a quick side note about the Roe v. Wade decision by the United States Supreme Court in 1973. It was a 7-2 decision by the justices; and the majority was a conservative appointed court. Oh, and one of the dissenting votes was from a Democrat.

There is the argument by pro-choice believers that the Bible is silent on the subject of abortion. Not exactly true. More like it was understood by believers from the days of Moses until now that murder was wrong and the Bible didn’t need to go into detail about murdering unborn babies as it was clearly understood. Here is an interesting link to Baptist Press. The article is entitled, “ANALYSIS: Does Scripture address abortion?

I’m not trying to judge anyone, because in all honesty, these people are big boys and girls, and I just don’t care enough about the decisions they make about their lives to care, beyond the fact that they are deceived and are going to stand before God and try to explain why they were part of a group that, as a rule, hates Him, hates His family, and believes it is okay to murder children in the womb.

Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather correct them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. —Ephesians 5:11-12

The argument that Christian Democrats are going to heaven just like Bible-believing Christians is absurd. You can’t support or be part of a group that openly pushes an agenda that is anti-Christian, and openly anti-God, and then think that you as a Democratic Christian have a relationship with God where everything is just fine.

How does that involve me or any other legitimate Bible-believing Christian? The Christian Democratic agenda, relating to the acceptance of things that are forbidden in the Bible, is unfortunately no longer just done in secret or the privacy of one’s own home. It is openly in the public eye and affects every aspect of a Bible-believing Christian’s life. These people want the right to have their beliefs accepted but trample on the rights of others, namely Bible-believing Christians to express theirs. Isn’t that the height of ignorance, intolerance, hypocrisy, and bigotry?

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck —it’s a duck!
