Can Democrats be Christians?

| September 11, 2012

A Christian who votes for liberals is telling us that they love God but would rather follow the doctrine of Satan, or, that they truly do not understand that liberal Democratic policies stand in direct opposition to the Bible on virtually every point. In fact, I dare say that today’s Democratic party has become the new anti-Christian party of our times.

And any Christian who votes for liberals is in a sense casting their vote for the Antichrist and his policies.

I know this may sound extreme to some, but this is because they don’t know what Satan’s doctrine is. I do, because I have studied it. The problem is, that when I say liberals follow the doctrine of Satan, people who have not taken the time to study God’s Word picture me accusing liberals of meeting in dark caves in the middle of the night standing in the center of a pentagram covered in blood and offering human sacrifices to Satan.

This is not what I am talking about.

You see Satan is not stupid enough to come out and tell everyone what he’s really trying to do. So he packages and sells his teachings as things that help the poor and needy, bring peace on earth, and liberate mankind everywhere. Basically he has figured out a way to do evil but make people believe that he is doing “good”, just like Obama and the liberals have done today.

For it would almost seem as though Satan handed over his playbook to them because everything they do seems to be in step with it.

(Read Deception = 90% Truth and 10% Lies)

Here is the message God has for them:

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; and that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” –Isaiah 5:20

You know if I was uneducated in the Bible and the true nature of politics, and I just listened to political speeches on TV rather than doing my own research, I would want to vote for the Republicans after listening to them, but then after hearing Democrats make great speeches with all kinds of promises I would change my mind and want to vote for them.

And then if a Republican came back around to make some good points explaining to me why Democrats are wrong, I would be lost in a sea of confusion not knowing who to vote for. And this is what happens to so many unsuspecting people today.

So how are we ever to know who to vote for or which party mostly aligns with God’s Word?

Well, the first place to start would be by simply comparing and contrasting the policies of liberalism and conservatism with the Ten Commandments from Exodus 20 and see how they measure up.

Let’s do that.

1. Thou shall have no other gods before me.

Conservatives believe, like our Founders, that our rights and privileges come from God rather than government. Therefore they push for a small government with limited powers. Their aim is to restrict the government from assuming the role of God. Now notice I said conservatives. Not all Republicans are conservative. For there are many neo-cons and lukewarm Republicans that have slipped in who are almost just as bad as liberals. Sometimes worse, because we think they are on our side.

(Concerning neo-cons read “Political Idolatry”)

Liberals believe that government should take on sort of a “father” role by providing numerous programs and benefits to graciously bestow upon its children. They feel that the government should provide them free health care, free housing, free meals, free college, and on and on the list goes.

They look to government for blessings rather than God (Jer 17:5).

Liberals also believe that we can build a utopian society based upon multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance, apart from the teachings of the Bible. They dream of a world when we humans can put aside our differences, band together, and co-exist as one big happy family here on earth without having to follow the Commandments of our Heavenly Father. That is to say if they even believe He exists.

Bottom line, liberals have placed the gods of humanism, multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance before God. Man and Big Government are their gods.

(Read Forced Worship of Diversity and the Intolerance of Tolerance)

In addition to this liberals believe that they, the tolerant and enlightened ones, are progressing towards a more perfect state of being. And they take the high moral ground of deciding for themselves what is moral and what is not. My friends, anytime someone makes up their own moral code apart from God’s law, they are assuming upon themselves the role of God.

And this act of rebellion comes from the very heart of Satan’s doctrine. It was the same doctrine he convinced Adam and Eve of when he told them that if they disobeyed God they too could be gods deciding for “themselves” what is good and evil (Gen 3:5). They don’t need God telling them what to do.

How long will people be duped by this nonsense?

Well, if you’re not convinced that the Democrat Party is the anti-God Party of our day, then watch this video taken at the 2012 Democratic Convention. Three times in this video a majority of Democratic delegates shouted out “No!” to having the name of God added to their party’s platform.

Three times! If this doesn’t convince you, then I don’t know what will.

2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous GOD.

Idolatry is an act of treason against God and is a capital offense according to His law. Neither party should take this commandment lightly.

And we must be ever so careful because this commandment can be violated in many different ways. You don’t have to actually carve out and worship an idol made of metal or wood to break this one. It can be violated simply by forming your own perception of God different from what is revealed in the written word, the Bible. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard liberals say that their god would never be against things such as homosexuality and gay marriage and that he loves and accepts everyone just the way they are. They don’t need to change a thing.

The only way they can say this is if they’ve created their own god that perhaps they are more comfortable with.

(Read “Another Jesus”)

Republicans, more specifically the neo-conservatives, often break this commandment by putting all of their heart and soul in trying to spread Democracy around the world rather than focusing on building the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. The fact is, anytime we try and bring freedom to the world by any other means than through the teachings of Jesus Christ we will fail. You simply cannot have freedom without governing according to the Commandments of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ. Period.

In the near future I’m going to point out the fact that many neo-cons in the Republican Party have fallen into this idolatrous worship and idolization of Democracy leading much of the party along with them.

Because many do not look past the worshipping of idols made of wood, metal, or stone, this is probably the single most violated commandment of them all. Even by those with good intentions. They don’t stop and think about if what they are doing is equivalent to this or not. This is why we must always, always, consult God’s Word before believing in a particular political philosophy.

(Read “Destroyed For Lack of Knowledge”)

3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

To take the Lord’s name in vain means to carelessly use it, swear falsely by it, or to esteem it lightly.

Believe it or not, there are many liberal politicians today who violate this commandment repeatedly by including the words “God bless America” or mentioning God in their speeches just to convince Christian voters to vote for them. Case in point, the removal of God and the reinstatement of it to the Democratic Party Platform. Come on, anyone with any common sense at all knows that the only reason for Obama wanting it back in there was to make it look like liberals believe and follow God just as much as conservatives do, when they do not.

(Read “A Godless Party Expels the Creator” by Patrick Buchanan)

They’re just using the name of God to deceive voters. Plain and simple. And God doesn’t like it!

For you see, unless you sincerely want to serve God and obey all His commandments, you had better not use His name, because you will pay for it.

Yes, I am talking to you liberals who tell others that you are Christians when your beliefs and actions are in opposition to God. Beware my friend.

Another thing. When our elected officials take office they place their hand upon the Bible and swear by God that they will faithfully uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States. When they don’t follow through with that pledge they are guilty of taking the Lord’s name in vain!

There is no other way around it.

But for some reason, countless liberal politicians and judges could really care less about their sacred oath and move right ahead anyway to go around, pervert the meaning, or destroy the validity of the Constitution. It isn’t uncommon for them to say that the Constitution is a living document that must be changed to fit the needs of the times. Liberals think that way about the Bible too.

On the other hand, most conservatives I know take their sworn oaths seriously. They truly believe in protecting the Constitution, they fight to uphold the second amendment which gives us the right to bear arms, they stand up for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to private property. While liberals are constantly trying to take away our guns, trying to restrict our free speech by labeling it as hate speech, trying to prevent us from worshipping God by banning prayer from public schools, and trying to take away our rights to private property.

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.

Although the specific day and the religious rituals connected with this commandment have been fulfilled in Christ (Col 2:16), the law of the Sabbath is still very much in effect. You cannot work seven days a week without breaking down and getting sick. The body needs rest. Nor are employers allowed to make employees work more than 6 days in a row without being in violation of God’s law.

But you see, the difference between liberals and conservatives on this one is that conservatives emphasize hard work and personal responsibility while liberals believe in less work, more benefits, and practically unlimited rest.

And often overlooked is the part of this commandment where we are told we must “work six days” before we can rest. Hard work is necessary before one can truly enjoy “rest” and feel a sense of accomplishment. I’m not a medical doctor but I know from my personal observation that “work” actually cures many of the mental anxieties and depressions that are so rampant in the United States today, much better than a pill made in a laboratory somewhere can.

Work is just part of God’s natural order of things. Physical exercise and productivity are a must to keep both the mind and body healthy. We cannot escape this.

But many liberals I know think that they should be able to rest and enjoy the same things as a wealthy person even though they they’re not willing to work as hard as them.

5. Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Conservatives value the Biblical marriage between a man and woman, while liberals promote gay marriage and promiscuity. The family is the most basic structure of a nation, when the family goes, so does the nation.

You see this commandment did not say honor your “two daddies” or your “two mommies”, but yet, liberals support gay marriage and believe in giving gays and lesbians the right to adopt children. This is totally against God’s natural order of things and is a gross violation of His law.

And if liberals keep succeeding in re-defining the definition of a family I assure you our days will not be long in the land. The Government or a dictator will soon take the place of mommy and daddy in America and begin to control everything we do.

(Watch “Victory Over Evil”)

6. Thou shalt not murder.

This is simple. Conservatives fight to protect the unborn while liberals want women to have the right to murder her unborn baby if she so chooses.

Bottom line. Christians who vote for liberal candidates that support abortion, whether they realize it or not, have become an accomplice to murder the same as if they stood behind and gave aid to someone committing murder on the street. My friends, the day the Democrat Party began endorsing abortion should have been the day that every single Christian abandoned it!

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Of course both conservatives and liberals have violated this one. However, conservatives take a very dim view of their own who have done this and usually pressure them to resign. But oftentimes liberals really don’t think much of it and many times even celebrate those who have committed it. Case in point: At this year’s Democratic Convention liberals sat there starry eyed while Bill Clinton spoke to them.

Everyone knows it. Liberals commit far more acts of sexual immorality than conservatives. This is because they do not have an absolute moral standard like conservative Christians have to go by.

It wasn’t conservatives sitting around naked, having sexual orgies, and smoking pot at Woodstock in the 1960’s, it was liberals.

Besides that there are a countless number of policies pushed by the left that actually promote sexual immorality, like wanting to give out free condemns at high schools with taxpayer money.

8. Thou shalt not steal.

The core of the liberal Democratic Party’s polices violates this one in a big way. For their whole socialistic philosophy aims to take from those who produce wealth and give to those who do not. They want to take from the “have’s” and give to the “have not’s”.

This is none other than “theft” by forced redistribution of wealth.

(Read article titled “Marxism disguised as Christianity”)

I don’t care whether the money is redistributed through a progressive income tax system, numerous welfare programs, or Obama Care. It is still stealing! And they have the audacity to call it compassion? Oh they better enjoy it now, because there is a day coming when liberalism will be exposed for its hypocrisies and lies. And everyone will then know that all of those years liberals claimed to be champions for the poor and middle class that they were nothing but bold faced liars and hypocrites.

As it is written:

And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

The vile person shall no more be called liberal, nor the churl bountiful.

For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

The instruments of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. –Isaiah 32:3-7

9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Oh boy, where do we even begin with this one.

Liberals constantly lie and use slander against conservatives, they simply cannot be honest about what they really believe and what they want to do or else they would never get elected. So they with their liberal media and Hollywood work around the clock, 24 hours a day, devising ways to make Christian conservatives look like the villains rather than the good guys that they are.

They say that conservatives hate the poor, want old people to die, and if elected will bring us back to the stone ages.

There can be nothing further from the truth. Conservative Christians want people to be able to advance toward the gates of the Eternal Kingdom. It’s the liberals and their masters the Kenites who are trying to bring back the old pagan governmental system called the Beast (See Rev 13:1-2) that oppresses and drags people down to hell with them.

(Read “Prince of the Earth”)

10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

Anyone who holds on to liberal, socialist, or progressive ideologies, or votes for candidates who do, completely violates this commandment.

Class warfare is a perfect example of this. Liberals play on the “envious” and “covetous” desires of people to gain votes. They say things like, “It isn’t fair that someone making over 200,000 should be able to keep all of their income, the rest of you ought to be able to have a piece of what they have. So let’s raise taxes on them so the rest of you can have a little more for yourself.”

In other words, wanting to tax rich people at a higher rate like our current progressive income tax system does is a direct violation of this commandment.

This commandment states that every individual has the right to his own personal property and no person, or government can justly take that from him. Now of course the government can exact a flat income tax of 10% across the board. Some say 13% but the important thing was that everyone, whether rich or poor, would pay the same rate. A family making 50,000 a year would pay 5,000. A family making 100,000 would pay 10,000. And someone making 1,000,000 would pay 100,000 in taxes.

Proposed 2013 Income Tax Brackets from http://www.mydollarplan.com/tax-brackets/

But under the current progressive system, a family making an income of 100,000 pays 25% in Federal Income Tax. That doesn’t include property tax, sales tax, county tax, gas tax, and countless other taxes. And a person making more than 199,000 pays 36% in federal taxes. A system like this is not only unsustainable, it is downright destructive.

Raising tax rates among the wealthy is like saying you want more apples but you’re stupid enough to cut down the trees that produce them!

Conclusion

It’s no wonder why liberals want to remove the Ten Commandments from every public area of life. They don’t want us to see how poorly they measure up! They are also afraid that if our children looked up and saw the Ten Commandments on the wall at school that they would have a hard time brainwashing them to believe their lies. And the child may then begin to see through the evils of liberalism and see it for what it really is.

The Doctrine of Satan himself.

Well, up until Election Day I’m going to continue to write blogs like this one comparing and contrasting the various political philosophies of liberalism, conservatism, and libertarianism with the Word of God. I’m going to analyze topics like equality, free trade, taxation, redistribution of wealth, gay marriage, the economy, and whatever else I feel is important to cover. Don’t miss any of these!

    Seeing the 2013 tax brackets makes me sick. It’s eye opening to compare the Ten Commandments to our government today. Seeing how the liberals and others are breaking them and disobeying our Heavenly Father makes me so mad and sad. Our country and government needs a lot of prayer. Thank you Pastor Ben for this article. I would love to read more of what God’s Word says about these issues. Blessings to you, your family and ministry. You are in my family’s prayers. Keep going! 🙂

  2. Kristen says:

    This is what the tribes get for wanting a “king” to lead them instead of God. Crappy leadership on both sides of the fence. Very sad.

    Thanks for the comparative way of showing it against Biblical teachings. It is really too bad people want to throw the OT out the window. This is so simple a child can understand it.

  3. Lois Sackett says:

    I enjoyed this teaching very much. As Susan said in her above comment in comparing the government with the Ten Commandments is eye opening. Thank you for a very articulately written teaching from our Fathers Word. YHVH Blessings to you and your family.

    I truly love your works… however, the first paragraph I do not agree with.

    This is judging everyone as a group.. and it is wrong. There are Christian democrats and Christian republicans and Christian independents..etc etc Example: A democrat can be against abortion and a republican can be for abortion.

    I myself, do not consider myself right wing or left. There are just as many bad people on both sides. Many well known politicians who claim to be Christians and vote as the majority of Christians want them to vote, get caught with their pants down in a public restroom soliciting sex with same sex men.

    I pray and ask God to help guide my hand and mind when I vote.
