America’s popular Secular/Religious ‘god’ has been reinstated in the Democratic Platform.
On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee suspended the rules of the convention and inserted language regarding God and the State of Israel back to its platform. They had to vote three times to do it – and they had to lie to deem it passed, even though it was clear that the measure did not pass a voice vote in the chamber. The original 2012 Democratic Party platform had excised all mention of God and Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
On the third vote, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the chairman at the time, declared that an amendment to the party’s platform – adding a mention of God – had been adopted. He launched into the statement that in his opinion, two-thirds of the voters said “aye,” apparently without considering the volume of the voice vote.
Delegates erupted and booed, jeered and shook their fists even as he was speaking.
This Secular/Religious ‘god’ of the Democrats sanctions the willful murder of 4000+ babies via abortion every day; homosexuality; and so-called ‘gay’/’same-sex’ marriage in defiance of the true Jehovah God of the Bible. But this Secular/Religions ‘god’ is also the all-inclusive government sanctioned ‘god’ of America.
A brief look at Republicans
1.) The 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision was given to us a by a majority of Republican-appointed justices. Six of the seven justices which voted in support of Roe v. Wade were appointed by Republican presidents.
2.) Roe v. Wade has been upheld and legalized abortion maintained by a majority of Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices for the last 36 years. Since the Roe v. Wade decision, Republican-appointed justices have always been in the majority by a margin of at least 7-2. Currently, 5 of the 9 justices are Republican-appointed.
3.) The 2003 Lawrence v. Texas case which decriminalized sodomy was given to us by a majority of Republican-appointed justices. Four of the six justices which voted in support of decriminalizing sodomy were appointed by Republican presidents.
4.) Remember also, it was a Republican-appointed majority Court which banned school prayer in the 1962 Engle v. Vitale case, and which opened the floodgates of pornography in the 1973 Miller v. California case.
Why we are where we are
If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. ~ Charles Finney
Silent and passive pastors are responsible for America’s spiritual and moral deterioration by their failure to proclaim biblical truth regarding God’s perfect law, marriage, divorce, moral purity, legalized abortion and sodomy.
“The truth is our nation finds itself in its current state because the people have turned their backs on God and is living in rebellion to him; the pulpits are full of hirelings and whores; and American Christians have embraced a superficial, narcissistic, man-centered Christianity. No political party can remedy this situation. Only the pure preaching of God’s Word calling men to repentance, faith and obedience to God’s Word will suffice.”
