The Social Gospel is Deceitful

When describing the people who will not be going to Heaven, my heart is deeply saddened because they have absolutely failed to understand the Truth of the Gospel Message.

I have often written that Democrats and those who vote for that platform will not be going to Heaven because of the immorality of the platform supported therein. Within the Democrat platform is found broad support for various immorality standards among them are homosexual and abortion support. Read the rather long document for yourself and be satisfied that this statement is correct.

Recently a pastor who supports the DNC platform also disagreed with this statement from Paul, “For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity to indulge your flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law can be summed up in a single commandment, namely, “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” However, if you continually bite and devour one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, live by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh. For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, envying, murder, drunkenness, carousing, and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: ” Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!” Galatians 5:13-21 NET2.

The reason for his disagreement is what is known as the “Social Gospel” that stretches the purpose and meaning of the New Testament. There are basically two Gospels being supported in America: 1. Evangelism toward the salvation of the lost and the literal interpretation of the Bible, and 2. Social Justice and Reformation and an understanding of the broader meaning to the Bible. This is also referred to as Progressives.

For this and more we are also able to understand why Democrats are not supportive of the Constitution as it is written or what Conservatives refer to as the ‘Originalist View.’ The same can be said in reference to the literal interpretation of God’s Word.

The Social Gospel and Progressive Socialism in America go ‘hand in hand’ and this is why Democrats calling themselves Christians are found therein. These words of Jesus are difficult for those supporting the Social Gospel and Progressive Reform in America, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it. He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.” Matthew 10:34-42 NASB.

The difficulty of Jesus’ statement is not vv. 40-41, but 34-39. And so far as Paul’s statement in Galatians chapter 5 everything is okay until Paul wrote, “Those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.” What do you think?

Jesus is Lord.
