WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE

“I am going to vote my conscience.” More often than not, the person who says that, actually means the opposite. They really mean, “I am going to do what gets me off the hook.” They are appeasing the secular culture that hates Trump.

This need to appease the culture, has created strange hypocrisies. Many American believers now accept same-sex marriage. They know what the Word of God says about sexual immorality, but they also know the price they will pay for openly opposing gay marriage, so they ‘virtue-signal.’ They say all kinds of ethereal sounding words, like being ‘compassionate’ and ‘tolerant,’ so as to look righteous and avoid persecution. Its pure double-talk.

When it comes to Trump, their hypocrisy swings to the other extreme. They go from a lax moral standard, to one that is not just strict—it is impossible. They want a sinless candidate. Sadly, Jesus is not running for office. However, as soon as these hypocrites saw the winds of culture turn against Jesus, they would not even vote for Him.

Isn’t it funny how this sinless standard was never a part of Christian circles until people started hating Trump? All candidates are imperfect, and yet Christians voted for them.

So, what is the honest definition of ‘voting your conscience’? Voting your conscience means to do the right thing. James 4:17 says, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” This is why many who claim to vote their conscience are actually violating their conscience.

The Democrat Party has left no doubt about the evil they mean to do. They want a godless America. They want to kill babies at, and even after, the point of natural birth. They condone riots, looting, and even murder. Every city that Democrats control is a smoldering wreck. Do you want them to control the nation? How can you deny the apocalyptic devastation that would ensue if Joe Biden ever won the presidency?

At this point, if you deny these facts, you are practicing evil—you are an accomplice to evil. To use spiritual camouflage while doing this, only deepens your betrayal of God’s kingdom. It is wickedness.

And don’t forget their radical agenda for your church. It was not a virus, but their venom that shut down your church. They declared war on all churches, long before the pandemic. They are lying about their motives. That’s why churches are closed while big-box stores, casinos, thugs and looters are open for business. They have singled out the church. Do you see what are you doing to your own church by letting them win?

What does it mean to do the right thing? I mean the right thing not only for your church, but for your children and grandchildren? What is the right thing to do? Stop Joe Biden from becoming president.

How do we stop him? There is simply no option, but to pray, and then, vote for Trump. That is the only way you can stop Biden. Voting for some obscure “pure” third candidate is, in reality, a vote for Biden. There is simply no way around it. Yes, you are helping Joe Biden win by not voting for Donald Trump.

Every Pastor who reads this, needs to face their own hypocrisy. You need to do the right thing. You need to stand in your pulpit and instruct the people to register to vote and to cast their vote for Donald Trump.

Please quit hiding behind the discredited notion that you want to keep politics out of the pulpit. This election left the political arena when Democrats veered left and sold themselves to work wickedness.

Not voting, when you can vote, is also evil. Sitting this out is to side with the evildoers. Again, the right thing to do is to stop Joe Biden and the avalanche of socialism that he will bring with him. The only way to stop him is to vote for Donald Trump. It is the right thing to do. Not doing it, is wrong.

Detrick Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Now that you know what it truly means to “Vote your conscience,” you know what you must do.

PASTOR: CAN YOU LIVE WITH KNOWING YOU ALLOWED A PRESIDENT HILLARY?

PASTOR: CAN YOU LIVE WITH KNOWING YOU ALLOWED A PRESIDENT HILLARY?
‘That’s the real question for all of these people talking about their ‘conscience”

By Pastor  Carl Gallups Pastor of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Florida

Sen. Ted Cruz told conservatives at the Republican National Convention to “vote your conscience.”  Republican strategists linked to establishment figures like Jeb Bush are leaving the GOP because they can’t bring themselves to vote for Donald Trump.   Elected Republicans, cowed by the media, are piling on Trump in defense of Khizr Kahn.   And Marvin Bush, brother of George W. Bush and Jeb Bush, has endorsed Gary Johnson for President because he “wants to have a conscience.”

But pastor Carl Gallups, author of “Be Thou Prepared” and a prominent Christian supporter of Republican nominee Donald Trump, suggests the real moral burden lies with those who refuse to oppose what he believes is the frightening candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

“Will my conscience allow me to act in a manner so that Hillary Clinton will win the presidency and thus destroy this nation and the future of my children and grandchildren?” asked Gallups rhetorically. “That’s the real question for all of these people talking about their ‘conscience.’ Everyone else is going to have to live with the consequences of all of those who simply opt out of this election by not doing what they can to stop Hillary Clinton.”

Gallups recently appeared on The Jim Bakker show to explain what he said was the critical importance of Christian participation in politics. He was critical of those who said Christians should stay out of the political process.

“We’re citizens and we have a right to be a part of the political process but more than that, we have a responsibility to be a part of all of that,” he said.

Gallups suggested many pastors have been convinced, incorrectly, they don’t have the right to speak out about political issues from the pulpit. The leader of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Florida said the difference between “political: and “spiritual” issues is often overstated.

“Pastors have been brainwashed, not all pastors, but a ton of them have been brainwashed or intimidated into believing that they can’t stand in their pulpits and say, ‘Thus sayeth the Lord,’” said Gallups. “Regardless of what the government says about it.

“That’s the dirty little trick that’s been played on the church, the pervasive politically correct atmosphere. Let’s take an issue like abortion – is that not a biblical issue? That’s a biblical issue, that’s a deeply spiritual issue. It goes to the demonic. But the government has stepped in over the decades and said this is a political issue. And we always hear the phrase ‘separation of church and state.’”

Gallups argued Christians need to understand they are not electing a pastor but someone who will set policies for the nation. The best they can hope for, said Gallups, is to have a leader who can provide space for Christians to promote their faith and create a revival.

“We need people who love America and love the Constitution,” said Gallups. “We need people who understand America’s history and its foundation, who love the rule of law. And who will protect that, because if that’s in place, then we are free to do what we’re supposed to do. It’s not the president that’s supposed to be preaching the Gospel, it’s you and me. But we can’t do it if we have people in power who are constantly holding us down and trying to crush us out of existence.”

Gallups told WND that is precisely what Hillary Clinton is trying to do. He urged Christians to understand the dire consequences which will result if another President Clinton gets to determine the Supreme Court.

“These are just the facts – Hillary Clinton would replace Justice Scalia with another liberal, perhaps even ultra-liberal justice,” he said. “This devastating maneuver would give the ‘progressives’ a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court. And that doesn’t count the times that Justice Kennedy might vote with the liberals (as we have seen him do on several occasions), giving them a 6-3 majority decision.

“And don’t forget: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 83. She has had numerous and serious health problems, including pancreatic and colon cancer, and heart problems. Justice Breyer is 78. Justice Kennedy is 80.”

Gallups said the ironic result of Christians sitting out of the election because of “conscience” could be the end of America itself.

“It is entirely within the realm of possibilities that the next president could nominate up to four justices to the Supreme Court in the next few years,” Gallups warned. “If that president happens to be Hillary Clinton, because millions of Christians ‘couldn’t vote against their conscience’, she would seal a far-left activist Supreme Court for many decades to come. And don’t forget, she will be appointing numerous lower federal court justices on top of that! America as we have known it would be toast. Plain and simple. And the end would come like a flood.

“Our nation would be ruled by unelected and largely unaccountable far-left judges. An uncooperative legislative branch would be ignored, as Hillary’s government would merely rely upon liberal judicial fiat for its law.”

Gallups cautioned Americans against assuming the Constitution would protect their rights, as the Supreme Court has shown it is willing to radically reinterpret the supreme law of the land.

“If you have a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court, for starters, many of your First Amendment rights would be gone,” Gallups said of the consequences. “Your right to bear arms would be ancient history. Whatever privacy rights you have left now will also evaporate. Government intrusions and atrocities, all committed with the Supreme Court’s sanction, will sweep down upon us. Look what has happened, even without a liberal majority on the Supreme Court. Listen to what Hillary is openly and currently boasting about doing should she become the president. Her agenda is evil – and it is clear.”

Gallups urged Christians to examine their conscience in a different way. He asked believers to really ask themselves if they are willing to inflict such a fate on their fellow Americans and fellow Christians.

“Do you really want to take this chance?” he asked. “Do you really want a president that couldn’t even pass an FBI background check to be employed as an agent? Do you really want Bill Clinton back in the White House and thrust onto the world scene as a world leader? Do you really want all the Clinton baggage we were so glad to see leave the White House years ago simply step back in for four or, perhaps, eight more years?”

Gallups told Jim Bakker he doesn’t believe Donald Trump will somehow save the country by himself. But he said as a Christian the stakes are too high to do anything but stand with the Republican nominee.

“I don’t think Donald Trump is the savior of America,” concluded Gallups. “I don’t think he is the perfect candidate. There are parts of his platform I don’t agree with. But I’m saying on November the ninth, after the election, it is going to be one of those two people, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. So that’s what I tell Christians – get out, get engaged, be the salt, be the light, or we’re going to lose everything we have.”

 

How is voting for Ted Cruz, voting your conscience?

How is voting for Ted Cruz, voting your conscience?

By Mario Murillo

I am a simple man asking some simple questions.  If the reason you can’t vote for Trump is that he has sinned then please tell me something:  How then, is voting for Cruz voting your conscience? 

-His super PAC released photos of Melania—with Ted’s full knowledge—before Trump said anything about Heidi. 

-The Cruz campaign lied about Ben Carson dropping out of the race to help Ted win Iowa. 

-He mailed out a fraudulent “VOTING VIOLATION,” form.

Donald Trump has never claimed to be the super-Christian that Ted Cruz claims.  Trump even humbly said to evangelicals “I am grateful for your support even though sometimes I don’t feel I deserve it.”

Isn’t Cruz just the opposite?   Didn’t his campaign feel entitled to the evangelical vote? Haven’t they castigated us and questioned our Christianity for not supporting him?  

Didn’t he stand stand foursquare with Mormon commentator Glenn Beck—and, in my opinion, his tacit approval made it look like Mormonism is the same as Christianity.  Ted never condemned Glenn’s decreed to southern evangelicals: “You are not obeying your God!” because they voted for Trump.

However, the thing that seals the deal for me was his behavior at the Republican National Convention.   Wasn’t Ted standing there like a smug martyr parsing words?  Wouldn’t  King Solomon have seen right through him?

In 1 Kings 3, Solomon discovers who the real mom is by threatening to cut the child in half.  The real mom says, “let her have the child but don’t divide it.”  Didn’t Ted Cruz prefer to divide the child?  

I am sorry, but I can’t see how this was courageous conviction. This did not look like Martin Luther nailing truth to the Wittenberg Door—this looked like a man simply out for himself.

 

Was he so filled with revenge (for a fight he started) that he had to lie one more time?  Didn’t he lie when he wrote his name on a pledge and gave his word to endorse the eventual nominee?   Proverbs 15: 4 “ But he honors those who fear the Lord;  He who swears to his own hurt and does not change.”

As I said in the beginning…I am a simple man asking simple questions.

P.S.  None of this is said in anger or disrespect…I am a simple man asking simple questions.  Please don’t tell me I am lying about Ted Cruz.  These are all facts.  Please comment but be aware that it is a waste of time to post vitriol, abusive language or nutty spiritual gobbly-gook.  Thoughtful rebuttals are most welcome.
