Democrats try to Deceive Christian Conservatives
The above constitutes the original theme of this Thread, and I wish to further treat that, logically flawed, statement. Just for what it’s worth, I
doubt the existence of truly “Christian” Conservatives in the sense of the Reality of the Truth of the Universal Body of Christ. For that major
reason, and many, many, others, I challenge, and will continue to challenge, the use of that genre of terminology regards Politics and the Secular
World. Why? Because such a “paradigm” as “Christian” Conservatism has come to represent runs counter to the very fundamental beliefs and
doctrines of the entirety of the Christian Faith, itself. Before I go any further, I MUST state that I speak on this thread, (and the rest of ATS), as
an individual Christian man, and not for the Faith of my Ministry as the Body it is. I cannot speak for that in a Political forum simply because it is
against the Law for me to do so. In other words, the opinions I express on these forums are my own, and not necessarily that of the Church and Faith I
represent. This secular fact does not just affect me, but, every other Ordained Minister and Lay Person in America.
It appears to me that those who define themselves politically as “Christian” Conservatives also identify with what has come to be called the
Christian Right. In my mind, personal Faith, and religious education, there is, and has never been, anything “right” about the “Christian
Right”. What has been proven by Fruit and Act by these people over time and analysis is, though they well may be politically “conservative”,
they are, at the same time, Biblically Liberal; lauding both the Name of Jesus and the Holy Bible and Scriptures to support political platforms, Wars,
and bad secular Law. That such is done selectively, taking Scriptures out of context and twisting meanings to their own ends to instill Fear and
create division and schism in the Body of Christ, is completely juxtaposed to the intended meaning of the Bible and the Christian Faith. No greater
example of this sort of divisiveness (though not strictly Biblical) can be found than in the title of this Thread. The same “device” is
represented. Let me get specific.
One of the hallmark themes of both the Christian Conservatives and the Christian Right is “Christian Family Values”. Yet, at the same time,
Christian Conservatives largely support the War in Iraq. How can this possibly be, as War divides Families by sending Sons and Daughters, and in this
one, Parents of small children, into harms way? What are “Christian Family Values” and a “Christian Family” if not the crux, Love-functional,
unit of the Body of Christ, the Secular Community, and the Nation, itself? In the Eyes of God, nothing justifies War, and it is a totally secular
practice prosecuted by Natural Men—not God. (Don’t even think about Old Testament examples, as that is a dead book and Testament to the true
Christian as it is no longer the Law; and only a moral dictum for the purpose of conviction and that is all.)
I have seen a decay from subject here, as well, as we speak of the abortion rights controversy, which is off-topic for this thread. It is enough to
state that it is the long-held dictum of Faith that Life begins, now, in the same it has begun since the Beginning. That is when God breathes the
Breath of Life into the Body, just as was done in the case of Adam and Eve. The learned of the Faith understand that Time to be on the taking in of
the First Breath.
Another kindred issue is Women’s Rights. I will say this once. The translation of the Hebrew text as regards Women as “Helpmeets” is the 12th
definition of the word. The First Definition is “equal”, and the Text itself does NOT contain the appropriate and common modifiers required to
lend any other definition. IOW, the word is used in the literal sense. Personally, I hold with the intended and original definition, and not the
definition as miss-transcribed.
In closing, I am merely going to say that there is no “conspiracy” or deception in “Democrats deceiving Christian Conservatives”. None is
needed, as the Christian Conservatives seem to gbe doing a good enough job of deceiving themselves, and by their own hands. Just make sure that they
don’t deceive you in the process, and Poison your Well as they certainly have others.
I’m done here.
