In this election we saw two more states added to the legalization of same sex-marriage. According to cbsnews.com “New York, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont — and the District of Columbia already allowed gay marriage. But Maryland, Maine and Washington are the first to approve it by public vote. The other states’ laws were enacted either by lawmakers or court rulings.”
I believe that as we see the continual decline of society and we continue to go deeper into what is prophesized concerning the moral condition of the world in the last days, we will see all of our states legalizing same-sex marriage. I also see abortion being legalized in all of our states.
We also saw in this election two states legalizing marijuana; so what is next? Cocaine? In a Democratic society we will go as far as the people wants to go; that is the problem with total political freedom…the people get to decide and things can get legalized if they follow the proper legalization process.
Conservatism seems to be politically sound and, to an extend, it has a form of Godliness, but at the heart it is also filled with man-made religion, idols and false ideas of who God really is. Conservatism will eventually also fail because it places the emphasis on the individual; just as liberals place the emphasis on government.
There is an accepted arrogance and unhealthy pride about conservatism in America that strives to place this nation above all the nations in the world. Conservatives like to call themselves exceptional, they like to call it America’s Exceptionalism.
In this election, for example, Latinos, like never before, were almost inexistent in the Republican Party. You wonder why? It is very difficult to attract people of other cultures when you already come across as viewing yourself as better than them. The Bible tells us in James 4:6
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” NKJV
It seems like we continue to mix the things of God with the things of this world. We use God as an ingredient that adds a needed seasoning for a particular selfish agenda. Politics is to be respected, but politics is not the answer; politics does not have the power to change and transform a person’s heart. Only God can change us!
Liberalism will eventually destroy this nation as it has many nations around the world. Liberalism dances with socialism; socialism is the heart of communism and I believe that we already know the condition of the communist nations around the world. On the other hand, Conservatism dances with Capitalism and the problem with Capitalism is that it dances with greed as greed dances with pride. These are man-made ideologies with very little Biblical foundation.
We are not called to mix in, we are called to be holy and we must be careful that we do not allow secular ideologies with forms of Godliness to take us out of the path of righteousness. Liberalism will never die in this world, as we know it. Liberalism is bold in expressing their resistance against God that makes it friendly to the god of this world.
Conservatism is dying and will die without any hope of resurrection. It may sound terrible, but it is actually good news. Good people, good morals and good conscience are not enough to change the world. The church has the message of hope; the church has everything that the world needs. We are the light and the salt of this world.
I can feel the rain coming down and the ark of our salvation is already in place. Church, get up and speak…it is your turn now! Our hope is in Jesus; He is our only Savior and our only Lord! I end this article with these words:
“16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” Romans 1:16 (NKJV)
Government deals with politics and politics deal with government. No doubt that the Democratic Party has become increasingly liberal; and liberalism, we know, will always resist the absolutes of God. That is the reason why Liberalism has no problem promoting same sex marriage and abortion.
Liberalism places the focus on Government as the source of HELP for a society. Liberals will always advocate for government programs, which require big spending and higher taxes. We witness how on there own Democratic Convention they refuse to allow God and Israel to be mentioned. Under great resistance a motion was made to allow God and Israel to be mentioned in people’s speeches. We all watched, as God and Israel were boo-ed!
It is virtually impossible right now for the Democratic Party to be able to reach out to the Christian community with their current platform. Likewise, it is virtually impossible for Republicans to be able to effectively reach out to the non-Christian community.
Often times the Republican Party presents itself as the Party on the side of God. The Republican Party, up until recent years, strongly adapted a Conservative ideology that promotes small government, low taxes, strong military and the creation of an environment where small business can be created to flourish.
Conservatism promotes freedom of religion. However, they have adapted two un-negotiable items in their political platform that are the result of religious convictions: Same sex marriage and abortion. The Conservative movement has passionately made their stance very clear against same-sex marriage and abortion and I applaud them for it. The problem is that the laws on these maters are changing. Beloved, we are in a free country and there are ways to change things legally.
Conservatism can only go so far; in this election America spoke very clearly against conservatism. No other President in the history of this nation has ever won an election with such terrible numbers in our economy, unemployment, deficit, etc. In any other time in history it could have been a very simple task to defeat the current President. However, President Obama ended up with a very clear Presidential victory, by far.
