A Lesson in Voting Contrasts

I can certainly appreciate the fact that Pastor Miles of The Rock Church has chosen not to reveal to his congregation who he plans to vote for. It’s probably wise to do so when he knows that people in the church likely don’t agree on who would be the best candidate.

However, I can also see the merit for pastors and conservative Christian authors to make their case for who they think is best to vote for.

For example, David Kupelian makes a good case for supporting President Donald Trump.

Open Letter To Christians

The part about “pro-life Evangelicals for Biden floored me! !

“Last week, a new coalition calling itself Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden urged pro-life Christians across America to support the most radically pro-abortion presidential and vice presidential candidates and party platform in American history.“

Go read it all. The convoluted twisting of what it means to be pro-life is ridiculous!

    CJW: I can certainly appreciate the fact that Pastor Miles of The Rock Church has chosen not to reveal to his congregation who he plans to vote for. It’s probably wise to do so when he knows that people in the church likely don’t agree on who would be the best candidate.

    Or it could be simply that it’s nobody’s business whom Pastor Miles plans to vote for.
    As a pastor, he knows his choice will automatically influence others. He can tell others about the candidates, but it’s up to the individual to decide whether to vote for one or the other. If he does otherwise, then he’s campaigning, which churches in the USA are not allowed to do. No house of worship wants to lose its tax-free status, but being openly political is one of the fastest ways to do it.

    For example, David Kupelian makes a good case for supporting President Donald Trump.

    He also makes a better case for removing him, in the very same article.

    Yes it is—but no less convoluted that your own meaning.
    Although it’s been years, I’m sure you remember Paul Hill. He, like you, was rather…selective in his definition of ‘pro-life’. I’ve met one or two like him.

    Kupelian: Friends, we are blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on earth. Our forefathers came here at tremendous risk to life and limb to establish a free Christian nation and many died in the process. I’m not asking you to risk your life – just to vote.

    Oh, but he is. Or maybe he hasn’t heard of COVID-19? Because he ignores that, and instead focuses on what he sees as Black Lives Matter’s agenda of ‘revenge, destruction and revolution’. Not a word about the 227,000 (and counting) Americans who have died from it in the past eight months. Not a word about Trump’s denying, delaying, distracting and diverting any useful information about it. He claims we’re “turning the corner”. It’s more like “circling the drain”.

    …And you need to vote for the presidential and vice presidential candidates who will champion life and not death; freedom and not socialist totalitarianism; traditional values and not progressive-left “there-are-100-different-genders” sexual anarchy; freedom of speech and religion, not censorship and “cancel culture”; Rev. Martin Luther King’s vision of a color-blind society and not Black Lives Matter’s vision of revenge, destruction and revolution.

    Dr. King did indeed have a vision of a color-blind society, and was murdered by someone who thought he was pushing too hard for it. I remind Mr. Kupelian (and you) of a quote from an earlier president:

    ”Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
    –John F Kennedy, 13 March 1962

    Yes, that line is a door that opens on both sides. So which side are you on?

    GM,
    Thanks for letting me know about the broken link. WordPress has updated the editing process and this tech challenged blogger had to do some extra research. Hubby to the rescue!

    Anyway, it seems to me that this so-called Leftist “pro-life” group is using replacement psychology in order to make people believe that killing babies in the womb is preferable to their gobbledygook political beliefs re: what constitutes being pro-life.

    An abortion sadly ends a life in the womb. Go see the movie “Silent Scream.”

    In the Bible, Jesus famously said:

    Luke 17:2 – It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

    The cruelty of abortion is unconscionable! I recall in the past that HiLIARy stated that abortion should be, “safe, legal, and rare.” Well, its certainly not “safe” for the baby. The “legal” part was decided by 5 of 9 justices. And the rare part doesn’t exist – at least not anymore. I am in the process of reading a commentary about the history of it all. Yes there may be times where an abortion might be necessary to save the life of the mother, or, because of severe defects in the fetus found early in the pregnancy might warrant such a procedure.

    But in today’s political climate, we have a Virginia governor who explained how when a botched abortion ended up in a baby being born – that baby should be comforted and kept warm until it was time for it to die by some other method. That’s infanticide! It’s just so ugly to even imagine that type of absolutely cruel mentality.

    As a mother who miscarried in between my two children when I was pregnant for only a few weeks, I understand the hurt, tears and pain of loss that women must feel. Of course, there is Forgiveness through Jesus for women who made the horrible choice of abortion.

    Recently I heard Candice Owens share some dreadful statistics.
    Something like 400 out of every 1,000 black babies are aborted. 104 out of every 1,000 white babies are aborted. Looks like abortion advocate Margaret Sanger got her racist death wish.

      Well, what does constitute being pro-life?
      If that was strictly practiced, there would be no soldiers, on the grounds that war means fighting, and fighting means killing. Or does being pro-life apply only to certain lives—the ones that appeal to you?

      In the Bible, Jesus famously said:
      Luke 17:2 – It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

      True, but wasn’t Jesus referring to children who had already been born?
      I don’t recall reading a single biblical passage in which he addressed the subject of abortion. If you know where one is, please refer it to me. I might not like it, but I won’t ignore it.
      According to the news, some 400+ children held at the southern border for months have not been reunited with their parents, because the government admits that the parents cannot be found. Oh, but those children are long out of the womb; their lives are less important, biblically and politically. They’re neither American nor white, so they don’t count…right?
      It seems that somebody out there doesn’t mind offending those little ones.

      You’re not pro-life, Christine; you’re pro-birth, which is something else again.

    GMpilot,

    I am wondering from all of your posts do you consider yourself an atheist, or agnostic?

    Even secular people try to fill the void in their lives with something. It might be with their children, animals, or even nature. We as humans have an innate subconscious need to want a part of who we are to carry on after we our physical body is gone.

    Your protests against Christianity lead me to question what you are filling your soul with.

    Are you a cultural Marxist? There is a Utube video by Dr. Voddie on Cultural Marxism that I think might be of interest to you. Tell me what you think after you view it.

    Theism is based on belief; gnosticism is based on knowledge. Didn’t they teach that at BioLA?
    I do not know if any gods exist, but I don’t believe that any do. I am, therefore, an agnostic atheist. Other kinds exist; an agnostic theist doesn’t know if gods exist either, but she would believe in them. Got it?

    Even secular people try to fill the void in their lives with something. It might be with their children, animals, or even nature. We as humans have an innate subconscious need to want a part of who we are to carry on after we our physical body is gone.

    True, but you Christians conduct yourselves as though who you are—not ‘a part’ of it but all of it–will carry on after your physical body is gone; that “eternal soul” business. Most assume that ‘soul’ equates with ‘personality’, and that both will go on forever.
    Among the priesthood, denying that ‘innate subconscious need’ has always been regarded as a cardinal virtue.

    Your protests against Christianity lead me to question what you are filling your soul with.

    You’ve tried to tell me about my soul before, but you couldn’t define it or describe it. So how do you know what it is, let alone if I have one? If you can answer that, then we can discuss what I’m ‘filling’ it with!

    Are you a cultural Marxist? There is a Utube video by Dr. Voddie on Cultural Marxism that I think might be of interest to you. Tell me what you think after you view it.

    I’ll tell you what I think of it right now: what is a ‘cultural Marxist’? It sounds like your Boogeyman of the Week.
    I don’t consider myself a political Marxist, and I don’t know what a cultural Marxist might be. Fill me in, then I may try the in-depth briefing.

      Ummm… GM – that was L asking you the question.

      Since I recently watched it, I can highly recommend seeing the video. IMO, a few sentences of summary will not include the importance of the history of cultural Marxism. You would likely gain a heap of knowledge, discover how and when it started, experience the impact of knowing the truth about it, and benefit greatly from the in-depth analysis that Dr. Voddie provides in his video. I certainly learned a lot from it!

    I stand corrected, hostess. My apologies. But my question still stands.

    L, I did not ask for a history of cultural Marxism; I asked what is a cultural Marxist? One does not need to read a history of theism to know what a theist is (and it’s possible to look up its history if one wishes to).
    If you can’t explain the concept simply, then you don’t understand it well enough.
    From my first glance, it takes this gentleman over an hour to define it. I assume during that time, he provides adequate historical support for his claim. But I don’t consider myself a Marxist of any kind. One does not have to be a Christian to take an anti-Marxist position.

    I should have guessed you wouldn’t bother to answer. So I did a swift Google search for Dr, Baucham, and not only did I find him, I found this. It took me ten minutes to learn what he describes as ‘cultural Marxism’. Only then did I sacrifice an hour listening to him.
    It seems to be a winning subject for him; he’s done at least three more such sermons.

    So now I’ll rephrase my question, L: do you think I’m a cultural Marxist? It’ll be fun to read your explanation!
