Drifting Into the Abyss

This ran at the Visalia Times Delta on August 31, 2016.

This is a political worldview essay.

Obama has decided that giving Iran, a terrorist nation, 400 million in cash, which some say commits three felonies, is a judicious move.

This Christian disagrees.

Liberals say that the government should solve most of our problems.

Christians know that is pure folly.

Modern liberalism proclaims that science disproves God.

Christians know that science is the study of how God made the world and how God made us.

Obama thinks giving terrorist Iran over one billion dollars of American taxpayer money is prudent. Boatloads of Christians strongly disagree.

Modern liberalism junks God by saying it is, “common sense” to believe there is no God.

Christians observe all of creation and realize there has to be a first cause and know unequivocally that God is the author of all that we can see and behold.

Modern liberalism says pretty much any sort of sex is acceptable. Rampant disease reveals the lie.

Christians know that people love their sins so they reject God.

Modern liberal media thinks that Christianity is something to be attacked.

Christians know that all men are accountable to God for their actions.

Modern liberalism does not see the relationship between socialist systems and the massive failure that they produce such as the USSR, Venezuela and Obamacare.

Christians know that any political system that rejects the God of the Bible oppresses people.

Modern liberals see no consequences in rejecting God both in this life and eternally. Christians look at the history of Israel and the history of mankind and see that those who reject God eventually suffer disastrous consequences.

Modern liberals conclude that there is no God and He has no claim on their lives.

Christians know the first claim God has on us is that He created us and the second claim is that Jesus died for each and every individual person as a ransom. Neither of these claims are trifling matters.

Modern liberals think that all employers should pay for employee contraceptive.

Christians know that this is simply a diabolical attack on Christianity and that reasonably priced contraceptives are readily available at thousands of local stores.

When I ask liberals about Bill lying to a grand jury, Hillary lying about Benghazi, and Hillary lying about her email server, the typical response is, “yes, but they got away with it.”

Christians do not take delight in evil.

In the 1930’s Hitler decided that killing Jews is acceptable.

Many Christians like Dietrich Bonhoeffer disagreed.

Liberals today have decided killing Americans in the womb is just fine.

Many Christians strongly disagree.

In the 1930’s Hitler told the churches to submit to the state, just like Obama has told American churches what to do.

Many complied. Some did not.

Modern liberalism is on the wrong side of history.

Christians make mistakes but more often than not work to get things right.

Liberals reject God so that they can do whatever they want.

Christians recognize that doing whatever you want eventually leads to destruction.

Liberals protest often enough around the world – usually trying to get a government to act.

There were 7000 Christian martyrs in 2015.

Christians know that oppressors will kill them for their faith yet they do not flinch.

The Founding Fathers sacrificed their fortunes and lives to birth our great nation.

Whose side are you on?
