With only days to go before America decides who will occupy the White House it is abundantly clear that Democrats are rousing every effort to appeal to the vast crowd of “millennial” voters.
They are the young, educated and liberal leaning voters that we have prepped with liberal indoctrination for about one full generation.
The adage about wasting a mind has changed and they are the proof. Now it’s – “an ideology is a terrible thing to waste.” It has not been wasted on them.
Their greatest worry is global warming and high tuition for college. They think a degree and some open ended living will get them through life in a land where nothing can go wrong and war or any foreign intrusion can be warded off by either ignoring it or by some simple diplomacy.
Under Mao, China underwent the crushing of its own heritage and history as the Chairman indoctrinated an entire generation with nothing more than a little red book, a comic book styled communist quotes manifesto. It piqued and aroused an entire generation of youth to pull down the very foundations of a once proud and free nation.
The sudden onslaught of Marxist ideology in China was forced on them by Mao. In America it has been fed to our young, a spoonful at a time over the last full generation. They have now grown up and are paralleling the behavior of the Chinese youth to the letter.
They are now willing and actively pursuing a national posture that dismisses our foundations. Both founding Biblical principles and constitutional underpinnings are being trashed or disconnected by degrees.
We have come full circle.
Nothing indicates this more than the new and fully accepted policy regarding abortion.
From 1978 to 2015 the Chinese forced their “One Child” policy on the people. It was abortion by government. Starting in 2016 they began to engage in a two child policy.
In America it was decided by nine justices of the Supreme Court that abortions would be made “legal.”
A Special Warning for all True Christians
It is far more disconcerting and almost impossible to explain 56 million abortions performed in America for two very distinct reasons.
First, we have a choice in spite of Roe V. Wade to ignore the law completely and as moral people – refuse to abort even one single child. That choice was forgone for a “play but not pay” new morality that gives up the difficulty of parenthood for the lazy man’s refusal to be inconvenienced. We call it things like “planned parenthood” but in reality it is circumvention of parenthood by means of murder.
Secondly, we all know that any person with an ounce of conscience and or knowledge of the Bible’s teaching on life and death dare not use the phrase “social issue” or “legal issue” regarding the killing of the unborn.
It is a moral issue, no more and no less.
As pertaining to defense of victims of crime and defense of our nation and in some cases the defense of other nations it is covered in many bible verses such as the following.
“For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.” (Ro 13: 3-4)
All other killing is addressed with one single verse of scripture, a commandment.
“Thou shalt not kill.” (Ex 20: 13)
Unborn children are no threat to citizens; they are not combatants and pose no eminent danger to anyone in our nation. Taking their lives for any reason is to break the commandment with full recalcitrance and concomitant culpability – we will be held accountable.
Are we culpable (guilty) for the immoral choices of our chosen candidate?
The simple answer is – yes, but to be fair let’s consider this. When a murder has been committed in our land, all those who took part are held accountable, not just the one who stuck the death blow or pulled the trigger. All willing conspirators or participants will be charged with the same crime.
It is here we must remind that Hillary Clinton stood up in the second debate and proclaimed before the entire nation that she stands firmly with the decision of Roe v. Wade and will do everything she can to stop it from being overturned.
We may not like to hear it, but to pull the lever in the voting booth for Hillary Clinton makes us fully complicit with her stated position on the continuation of abortion.
Three things clearly change the minute we vote for a pro-abortion candidate. In fact we cancel any excuse we now think we have.
- We cannot shift the blame to nine black robed justices now or on judgment day.
- We can no longer hide behind the overused common lazy man’s excuse – “it’s the law of the land.”
- We will be able to say – I did not directly support or cast a vote to abort innocent lives.
For the Christian this is an impossible choice. It is a choice that puts us in direct disobedience to the commandment of God.
It goes without saying that in the last day Hillary will not be standing alongside the apostate Christians ready to help in their defense.
In fact, unless we choose wisely against such a choice we will be standing next to Hillary with no defense at all.
There is time to re-consider for both us and Hillary – but not much time.
There is still time to avoid turning our nation into – “Chairman Mao’s America.” We must shut off the raging rhetoric just long enough to hear the melody wafting in the air; it is the piper with fair warning to all, but especially the Christians.
“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, and saying, we have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.” (Mt 11: 15-17)
