The Democratic Convention shocked the nation when it decided to take God out of its party platform.The shocked response brought a swift reversal to the platform (over the objections of at least half of the delegates present) but didn’t change the direction of the party.
The Democratic party abandoned God in practice long ago when it decided to make the right to have abortions a major plank in its platform!
They used to pretend they wanted abortion to be “rare.” They also claimed they only wanted to save the life of endangered women and eliminate the products of rape or incest. But that was never true!
Liberal policies have led to the deaths of 1.2 million babies in the USA per year (and assisted in the deaths of 42 million babies per year worldwide). Only 1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest and only 6% involve possible health issues for the mother or the child.
That means 93% of all abortions occur because the baby is simply unwanted. The baby is the wrong gender (usually that means a girl) or simply an inconvenience to one or both parents.
Though many Democrats believe in God they are ignoring the standards for living righteously revealed in His Word. His greatest commandments are to love God supremely and to love one’s neighbor as oneself!
An unborn baby is one’s neighbor! In Proverbs 8:36 (NKJV), God issues a clear warning: “But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.”
A love for abortion, or any other unjust destruction of life is a clear statement of hatred for God, the giver and sustainer of life! The Democratic Party, therefore, reveals a hatred of God by its love of death. How can Christians align themselves with such a platform? To honestly proclaim the name of Jesus Christ we must depart from iniquity!
Let’s look a little deeper into God’s standards. (Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV)
16 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.
I have seen plenty of evidence of these abominations in the administration running this country for the last four years. Pride, lies, shedding innocent blood, and sowing discord are standard practice.
As for sowing discord, President Obama has the country divided into so many factions it’s hard to keep track. Instead of being united patriotic Americans we are now vehemently divided into red vs blue, black vs white, young vs old, rich vs middle class, union vs non-union, 99% vs 1%, taxpayers vs benefit takers, Occupiers vs Teapartiers, conservatives vs progressives, Republicans vs Democrats, rule of law vs anarchy, etc. ad nauseum.
Proverbs 26:23-28 (Holman Christian Standard) further instructs us.
23 Smooth lips with an evil heart are like glaze on an earthen vessel.
24 A hateful person disguises himself with his speech and harbors deceit within.
25 When he speaks graciously, don’t believe him, for there are seven abominations in his heart.
26 Though his hatred is concealed by deception, his evil will be revealed in the assembly.
By the grace of God, an open mic revealed Obama’s dislike of Netanyahu, and his plan to more aggressively cooperate with Russia after the election. His actions: An apology speech in Cairo, Egypt (which encouraged the Arab Spring and led to the unstable mess in the Middle East right now); bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia; hosting Ramadan parties in the White House; refusing to acknowledge Islamic terrorism; placing Muslims in Homeland Security positions; favoring Muslims for immigration; and welcoming Muslim Brotherhood officials to the White House, as well as financially supporting their activities abroad. These actions clearly reveal his Islamophilia and disdain for America’s security.
If you haven’t seen the movie, 2016, I encourage you to see it if you can. It doesn’t reveal everything there is to know about Obama’s hidden past but it shows you enough to warn you against voting for him again.
27 The one who digs a pit will fall into it, and whoever rolls a stone- it will come back on him.
28 A lying tongue hates those it crushes, and a flattering mouth causes ruin.
We don’t have to judge President Obama’s heart to assess the results of his rhetoric and his actions. Our economy is in shambles and the Middle East is on fire. We are living with the ruin caused by voting in “a flattering mouth” in 2008.
God has graciously given us a chance to repent and turn away from the path of destruction Obama is leading us down. Please pray for wisdom and vote to Restore America!
