What Do I Mean?

What do I mean when I write, “Christians will not/can not vote for or be a Democrat.” There is much disagreement this and I understand, but here is the reason(s).

The platform of the DNC supports:

“We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion.”Abortion is the murder of the unborn and newly born infants.

“Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights.” Gay rights which in and of itself is sodomy. There is more, but this is enough.

The Word of God is Clear

The Word of God refers to murder and sodomy as sin and I will not categorize one as being worse than another for Scripture simply states that all wrong-doing is sin. Jesus is clear about those who claim to follow Him, “A good tree doesn’t produce bad fruit; on the other hand, a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit. 44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. 45 A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.” Luke 6:43-45. And James writes, “Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and evil, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save you. 22 But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but one who does good works—this person will be blessed in what he does.” James 1:21-25.

No, Christians will not vote for nor participate in the political process as a Democrat primarily for the reasons that are stated in writing within the Democratic National Convention platform.

However, there is another reason that is not stated, but has played out on the International scene. The support of Israel is a powerful statement and has been made by the Administration of Donald Trump. The Bible has this to say, “The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Jesus is Lord.

The Holman Christian Standard Bible is used for each Bible quotation.
