IT IS LIKE TEACHING YOUR YOUNG SON TO SMOKE DOPE

I remember it like it was yesterday. I could smell marijuana smoke. I looked over the fence into the yard of my neighbor, Sam, because the smoke was coming from his back porch. Sam was teaching his thirteen-year-old son how to light up and smoke dope.

It was not hard for him to interpret my glare. He defensively explained that he didn’t want to lose his son—that it is “better that he does it at home with me, than behind my back.”

Apparently, sitting his son down and explaining why it was dangerous and stupid to get stoned, was not an option. But, he was not saving his son—he was destroying him.

In the same way, a prominent Evangelical ‘scholar’ explained why—even after he and his group called ‘Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden’, were used and lied to—he still supports Biden, because, he admits, he doesn’t want to lose the kids!

He said there are “many younger evangelicals who are not happy about … the way in which their parents and grandparents have endorsed and defended the Trump administration. We … don’t want to lose them to evangelicalism because of what is perceived as mean-spirited, highly partisan commitment on the part of the older generation of evangelicals.” Wait, what?

How is what he is doing any better than what my neighbor Sam was doing?  He is saying, the younger generation must not be lost! So, what is his plan for keeping them? ‘Let them smoke wokeness’ and, worse still, ‘let’s smoke it with them.’

So we should smoke woke with them because we are afraid of losing them?

Really!? Sell their souls to Biden? Expose them to the toxic fumes of radical abortion—the heresy of multiple genders—bending to Red China—heaping massive debt—seizing guns—censorship—racism and victimhood—because these poor, innocent youngsters are offended by Trump’s tweets? Forgive me, but where is the adult in the room? The Christian adult!

Millennials must not be classified as some exotic new human species that must be excused from correction and common sense. That is the greatest insult—and the purest form of hatred.

“Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise, you will destroy their lives” (Proverbs 19:18).

I stood before 2,000 youth at a Christian college. I said, “If you are not careful you are going to be the most boring old people America has ever known. If you look in my smart phone you will see pictures of people being saved and healed. If I were to look in most of your smart phones, what would I see, pictures of food?

“Imagine years from now, showing those pictures to your grandchildren. “Grandpa, what is this a picture of?” And you sheepishly answer, “Well, that was my breakfast.” And then they will ask, “Why are there 17 pictures of grandma in front of a mirror that are all exactly the same?””

Believe it or not, these young men and women did not race to a safe place or assume the fetal position. They laughed. They reacted the way young people have for generations. Why? Because we forgot the obvious. Because in our zeal to prove they are different, we have forgotten they are just the same as the youth of every generation. Scared and teachable.

If this prominent evangelical were right, millennials would not be crowding the front of our tent to be saved. They can take the truth. More of them than you realize are ready to hear the other side of the story—the story about America’s decency, and the good things this nation has done in history.

It is the professors who have changed. It is the villains who have changed. It is the Democrat Party that has changed.  And I do not care who this offends: if we do not want to lose them, we must risk losing them by speaking the truth, in love!

Dear Christian professor…so what if you keep them Christian by letting them support Biden? What happens down the road when they read about Hell in the Bible? And, yes, when you quit preaching anything that you are afraid might cause you to lose them, where will it end?

When I get a chance to reason with youth, many of them wake up out of wokeness.  Catch phrases die after they are challenged to check their validity. When they spout stuff about Trump, I challenge them to show me, “When did he say that?” They are even able to handle the fact that I am working and praying for Trump to be back in the White House.

I know when it is time to preach Christ and leave Trump and Republicanism out. I also know when it is time to confront a generation that has too much at stake to be coddled, hoodwinked, and appeased.

Stop smoking dope with them. Love them enough to tell them the truth, and do not destroy them!

HOW LOVING JESUS AND AMERICA BECAME A NATIONAL THREAT.

I begin with a story. A therapist takes chalk and draws a straight line across the blackboard. “What does that make you think of,” he asks the patient. “Sex,” replies the patient. Then the therapist draws a triangle and asks again. “Sex,” comes the answer again. Finally, the therapist draws a circle and once again the reply is, “Sex.”

Putting the chalk down the doctor says, “I don’t need to go any further. Obviously, you are obsessed with sex.” The patient indignantly retorts, “ME!? You’re the one drawing the dirty pictures!” 

“Woke” people only see dirty pictures. “Woke” folk believe they see all things clearly. “Woke” individuals do not see their own bias, overreaction, or falsehood. To them, society is only drawing dirty pictures. Even the act of opening their eyes to reality offends them.

Science, truth, and history are all evil to the “Woke, if it contradicts their fantasy. In Portland this past October, they even toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Wait what?

Here is an example of what may happen if you ask a “Woke” person a fair question. Question: “How can you say there was no election fraud? There were several million more votes cast than there were registered voters?”  Woke answer, “That doesn’t matter, because you are a racist.”

They see America and American history as a cancer to be excised from the earth. While America’s history does contain some wrong acts, if a fair comparison of American history is made with the history of every other nation, America will look amazing. 

America is so great, in fact, that it is the only nation in the world where even those who hate America do not want to leave and go to live anywhere else.

Why do they want to destroy the most decent society in the world? Because in their rebellion against reason, they have come to believe their own lie. If you want to understand why there is so much hypocrisy on the Left, it is because they are fixated on what is wrong with everyone but themselves.

In a free society, “Woke” people are entitled to their opinion, but they are not entitled to their own facts. When the facts show that you are lying—that you are breaking the law in order to destroy people—that you are viciously excluding individuals in the name of inclusion—that you are smothering freedom in the name of equality—that you are abusing your political power to abolish the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then you must be opposed, exposed, and prosecuted.

The latest ‘dirty picture’ is a thing they call Christian Nationalism. They are saying that loving God and loving America is a dirty picture. The goal is to break up the voter base that loves Jesus and America. They want to shame us into being silent and they want us to leave the frontlines of the culture war right when we are needed there the most.

The oxygen-deprived Evangelical leaders who have signed on to this myth of Christian Nationalism, should be ashamed—ashamed of violating their calling and of betraying their congregations.

Here is the big picture: They invented the threat of Christian Nationalism in order to stop Trump. They have tried everything else to do it. They do not want him to even be able to run for office. First, they impeached him. Then they used the silly optic of National Guardsmen forced to guard a non-threatened Washington D.C.

Now they have turned to their final option: Invent Christian Nationalism in order to hold Christians and Patriots up as the greatest threat to America.

If you love Jesus and you love America, then listen very closely: do not negotiate with crazy. Do not buckle under their delusions. We must all stand our ground and reinforce the truth that our Founding Fathers were indeed moved by the hand of providence to construct a constitutional republic that is the best arbiter of freedom and justice the world has ever known.

But, until the “Woke” stop focusing on the perceived problems of society and begin to work on their own character, they will push for radical and fundamental change in our institutions and beliefs.

Recently, Dennis Prager said, “Conservatives believe that America can be improved, but should not be transformed, let alone, fundamentally transformed.

“The founders of the United States recognized that the transformation every generation must work on, is the moral transformation of each citizen. Thus, character development was at the core of both childrearing, and of young people’s education from elementary school through college.

“As John Adams, the second President said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

“And in the words of Benjamin Franklin, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.”

“Why is that? Because freedom requires self-control. The freer the society, the more self-control is necessary. If the majority of people don’t control themselves, the State, meaning an ever more powerful government, will have to control them.

“From the founding of the United States until the 1960s, schools and parents concentrated on character education. But with the ascent of left-wing ideas, character education has all but disappeared from American schools. Instead: children are taught not to focus on their flaws, but on America’s flaws.

“Social issues have replaced character education.”

We must never surrender our Faith in Christ! We must never “let our good be evil spoken of.” Our awesome God is still at work. This “Woke” nightmare is one that America will soon wake up from.

Hijacking Christianity

I remember that time when a newscaster asked me a ‘gotcha’ question: “What is your opinion on homosexuality?” My answer was simple, “My opinion does not matter, but I will tell you what the Word of God says about it.”

That ended that. She quickly changed the subject. She had hoped I would offer my own viewpoint so she could attack me as a homophobe. She, like so many on the Left, don’t want you to know they are anti-Bible.  Leftists know that millions of Americans believe the Bible is the Word of God.

When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, every time the devil asked a question, Jesus answered him with scripture. See how that works?

Pete Buttigieg is ‘married’ to a man, something the Bible condemns. However, that doesn’t stop him from quoting the safer parts of the Bible, so as to appear Christian. Like many hypocritical politicians, he knows being tagged as a Christian can get him votes. Obama did the same thing.

Pete believes there are mistakes in the Bible. He feels qualified to differentiate which verses we should believe in. That is a rare kind of arrogance, because he is not only placing himself above Bible scholars, he is exalting himself above God.

His brand of Christianity seeks to meld two utterly incompatible views, and he gets away with it because the media never questions anything those on the Left say. And, our culture is subjective, emotional, and rarely follows things out to their logical conclusion.

Now, take the religious tone out of this, and imagine a physicist who believes in gravity, but does not believe in Isaac Newton. He would be laughed out of the scientific community—just as Buttigieg should be laughed out of the presidential race for appropriating only the parts of the Bible he likes.  He is, in essence, hijacking Christianity.

This hijacking happened before. Obama believes babies can be killed at any point during pregnancy, and even if they should survive abortion. That disregard for human life is blasphemy in the Bible. Yet, he claimed he was a Christian. He hijacked Christianity to get votes.

He claimed ‘Gay love’ is a love from God. But the Bible clearly forbids such perversion, and lists it along with several other sins that are anathema to the Lord.

Time to let the Bible speak for itself. Take a look at this one verse from the Greek Interlinear New Testament:

9 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι ἄδικοι θεο βασιλείαν ο κληρονομήσουσιν; μ πλανᾶσθε: οὔτε πὀρνοι οὔτε εἰδωλολάτραι οὔτε μοιχο οὔτε μαλακο οὔτε ἀρσενοκοῖται

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor a catamite (a man who is used sexually as a woman), nor a sodomite (a man who uses men sexually as a woman),

10οὔτε κλέπται οὔτε πλεονέκται, ο μέθυσοι, ο λοίδοροι, οὐχ ἅρπαγες βασιλείαν θεο κληρονομήσουσιν.

neither thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor thieves will inherit the kingdom of God.  (1 Cor. 6:9-10)

Obama said if the winds of change turned against Islam, he would stand with Islam. How can anyone who calls Jesus Lord—as the Bible teaches—say that? For all this, Obama never hesitated to call himself a Christian. Sadly, even Christianity Today once carried an article defending Obama’s “conversion.”

The trend to uncouple Christ and the Bible is by no means limited to politicians. Even Spirit-filled believers are trying to do it. Most of us have heard preachers talk about their personal experiences that ‘transcend the Bible.’ One preacher went on my Facebook page and called the Bible milk that he had outgrown!

They will tell you they are trusting in the Holy Spirit more than ‘a book.’ But what they are really saying is that they trust in themselves more than the Bible.  The Holy Spirit would never condone abandoning the Bible.

By making same-sex marriage and Christianity compatible, Buttigieg has proven that he, too, is dangerous. By modeling a non-Biblical Christianity, he has shown us he is lethal.

I could respect an honest leftist who would admit they reject the Bible. I can abide them saying they believe the Bible is full of hate—because I can easily prove it is not.

A con artist like Buttigieg needs to be rejected for his massive dishonesty. To use Jesus to get votes, while you are living in open rebellion to the Bible, is to embrace pure evil.

CNN said, “Pete Buttigieg’s rise opens doors to donors that fueled Obama.” The best argument for rejecting Buttigieg is that he is following in Obama’s footsteps. We cannot let him hijack Christianity like Obama did.

HOW THEY GOT IT SO WRONG

Christianity Today was founded by Billy Graham who, to the best of my knowledge, never supported same sex marriage, abortion, or Barack Obama for President.  More on this in a moment.

First the big news:

There’s a big noise because the editor of Christianity Today, a prominent evangelical magazine founded by Billy Graham, called for President Donald Trump to be removed from office in an editorial published Thursday.

Mark Galli, the magazine’s editor in chief, wrote that “the facts in this instance are unambiguous.” His editorial was entitled, “Trump Should Be Removed from Office.”

He continued, “The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”

Before you panic and think something devastating has happened, let’s review the history of Christianity Today and take a look at some of the other things they wrote and see how consistent they are about immorality.

In a piece they published in 2012, they chastised the church for doubting Barak Obama’s Christianity. They even called the article “Our Evangelical in Chief.”

Stating, “That the true religious identity of the world’s most famous, most powerful man could remain a mystery to so many is itself a mystery. Before and especially during his presidency, Obama has been extraordinarily open on matters of faith, providing ample evidence for his repeated claim to be a devout Christian. The evidence may even suggest Obama is our evangelical-in-chief.”1

The article even questioned why we would prefer the Republican candidate over Obama, since Obama’s beliefs were closer to ours than Romney’s.

“While there are plenty of legitimate policy reasons that evangelicals might support Governor Romney, their willingness to overlook their desire for a coreligionist candidate may also have at least something to do with the fact that 24% of them—higher than any other religious group—believe Obama is a Muslim, and even more are unaware (or unconvinced?) he’s a Protestant. What if more evangelicals knew Obama largely shares their religious beliefs?”1

Then there was the article by Ed Stetzer making the case for voting for Hillary Clinton. First they promote Obama and then Hillary. The following includes the most disturbing justification for being Christian and being okay with abortion from Deborah Fikes then leader of the The World Evangelical Alliance, presented in Christianity Today.

Stetzer wrote, “Two weeks ago, Deborah Fikes offered her endorsement of Hillary Clinton as part of a series of endorsements of major and minor party candidates. I also asked the major party endorsers to come back and answer questions and respond to objections often surfaced by Evangelicals.”2

Here is an excerpt of Ms. Fikes’s original endorsement:

“My recent resignations from evangelical leadership positions to endorse Hillary Clinton speaks volumes of how important I believe it is that she is elected in November. The toxic tone and atmosphere that surrounds Mr. Trump and is fueled among his supporters has done irreparable damage to not only our country and the future of the GOP but also to the public witness of evangelicals in America who are seen as some of his biggest supporters.”

On abortion: “As a mother, it is difficult for me to think about this from the unborn baby’s perspective but I have even more compassion when I think about the women who have abortions. Maybe this is because I envision the unborn babies being welcomed into the arms of Jesus but when I think about the mother, I think of the burden she may carry for the rest of her life.”2

Ms Fikes salves her conscience imagining that the baby—who can feel pain as they are dismembered—is okay because they end up in the arms of Jesus.  Furthermore, that is preferred to…and this is her definition of a child which is: “the burden she may carry for the rest of her life.” Why would a Christian publication try to find a rosy side to abortion? And why say it in such an inelegant way?

The most maddening part is that this magazine still claims a connection to Billy Graham, who preached against everything they are condoning. Small wonder that Franklin Graham repudiated this article in Christianity Today.

Please don’t waste one minute worrying that this attempted broadside against an innocent man will damage our righteous cause. Instead, stick your finger in a glass of water. Then pull your finger out and see how long the hole lasts. That’s how long the suggestion put forth by this post-Christian magazine, calling for the impeachment of President Trump, will last…
