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.

If this doesn’t galvanize outrage.

If this doesn’t galvanize national outrage, I know God will judge us. Not gradually, not down the road, but right away. I believe we will see destruction on a scale we never dreamed imaginable. I believe heaven will revoke our right to exist as a nation.

The Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam—a medical doctor—said, if a fully formed baby survives an abortion attempt the baby should lay on the table until the mother decides to kill it or let it live. I quote: “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother” But it gets even worse…

This came from a centrist democrat. He is not known to be part of the wacko wing of his party. They have come this. He is declaring the mainstream opinion of the democrat party. What we have here is a defining moment. We are faced with a political party that sounds like a sociopathic butcher. They believe a wall is immoral but letting an infant die on a table is progressive.

We have left the realm of speculation. They blaspheme the very definition of civilization. They have—in my opinion—less decency than a Satanist Priest offering human sacrifice. At least the devil worshiper is not couching their depravity in polite terms.

Let me explain where we are: New York has legalized a form of ritual murder of innocents—a ritual unknown among savages. The Governor of Virginia echoes his approval in order to spread this sadism to Virginia. There is nothing left to think about. There is no place here for neutrality. This a clear choice between God and Satan.

Silence in the face of this unspeakable evil, is itself evil. Our theological differences don’t matter now. Every church must voice its outrage. Every pulpit must thunder its outrage. You must take a stand on this debauchery or stain your soul.

I have been a minister for 50 years. I saw the free love and leftist joy ride of the 1960’s. But I have never seen Americans plunge to this level of evil. I have never believed judgement on America was inevitable. Now I am forced to change my stance.

Judgement will come if all decent Americans do not find the requisite outrage—do not act as a single voice of condemnation to the most shameful, wicked, and repugnant practice in American history.

Call who ever you have to call. Write whatever letter you have to write. Preach whatever sermon you have to preach. Take a stand or lose your country.
