What “God,” Debbie Wasserman Schultz?


During the 2012 Democratic National Convention, platform collaborators intentionally omitted any mention of God and words supporting Israel.  Voices of outrage called for an amendment to add these references to the DNC’s stated tenets.  The DNC Chair walked onto the stage, explained the amendment, and called for a vote.  Loud boos echoed across the spacious vista, derisive jeers signaling God and Israel should be left out of the party plank.  The Chair, obviously under pressure to the pass the amendment, called for a vote three times.  Finally, he said,

“It passes.”

And then he whirled and strode off the stage.  More boos thundered around the auditorium.

Yes, the DNC booed God.  I thought,

“It can’t get any worse than this.”

I was wrong.

After the Kermit Gosnell trial, the abortion debate raged with greater fury in various state legislatures.  One particular state capturing much of the news was Texas.  Lawmakers there presented legislation banning abortion at the 20 week mark of pregnancy.  Enough research exists to prove babies in the womb suffer feelings of pain from this point on.  Both sides of the argument lined up at the Capitol Building, each side waving signs to express their personal ideologies.  Those to the Left claim Conservatives wage the real war on women, hindering them from healthcare services, while the Right insists the real war on women (and men) commences when a little girl (or boy) is ripped barbarically from the womb.  The debate and shouts intensified as lawmakers ended the public arguments and called for a vote.  While waiting on the tallied results, pro-life advocates stood on the Capitol steps singing “Amazing Grace.”  Pro-abortion proponents screamed at the make shift choir, even chanting “Hail Satan” to drown out the song of praise.

Unbelievable.

Because we live in America, the right to honor Satan exists, but to pay tribute to the Prince of Darkness over the innocence of unborn life in the womb is sickening.

Just a few days ago, DNC Chair Woman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox’s “The Kelly File.”  Megyn Kelly asked, ‘At what point does the fetus deserve protection or have constitutional rights?’  Schultz responded in this manner,

“We believe that decision is best left not to government but between a woman and her doctor. So, there isn’t — I can’t tell you a specific date and time past which we on all –in all cases are certain that that choice shouldn’t be made. Because that decision is very unique and individual to the woman, and should be in consultation with her conscience and her God and her doctor, that is a decision left to her.”

Obviously, Schultz is not referencing the God of the Bible but to “gods” dreamed up by fallen humanity to assuage their guilty consciences and to endorse their barbaric practices.

In reality, abortion mirrors in part, idol worship discussed in the Old Testament. Cultures outside of Israel sacrificed to a false god named Molech.  In Leviticus 18:21, the Law instructs,

“Do not permit any of your children to be offered as a sacrifice to Molech, for you must not bring shame on the name of your God.  I am the Lord.” (NLT)

Pagan cultures worshipped Molech, sacrificing their children to him.  But since Molech only existed in their deceived and deluded imaginations, the god of this world received glory in these sacrificial rituals.  In other words,

“Hail Satan.”

Today, abortion advocates scoff at the idea of Molech, considering the ancient worship rituals as savage and inhumane.  Instead, pro-choice voters bow at the altar of organizations like Planned Parenthood, pouring money into the coffers of doctors willing to surgically removed an unplanned burden.  In a spiritual sense, every knife’s slash chants

“Hail Satan.”

There’s good news.  One day the chant “Hail Satan” will cease.  In fact, one day Jesus will order,

“To Hell, Satan.”

Forevermore he’ll dwell in the Lake of Fire, free to champion death no more.  What a glorious day!

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Should Pastors Get Involved in Politics?


The year is 1776.  An imminent revolution looms against the British.  Peter Muhlenberg addresses a large crowd, quoting Scripture saying,

“In the language of the Holy Writ, there was time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away.  There is a time to fight, and that time is coming!”

Marching to the rear of the building he rallied the men, asking,

“Who among you is with me?”

Three hundred men rose to their feet, ready to fight for liberty.  Some might be surprised to know this dramatic scene played out in a Protestant Church service.  No, Peter Muhlenberg wasn’t a lay person from the congregation, but the Pastor.  His fiery sermon challenged the men of the Church to rise up against the tyranny of the British Crown.  After quoting from the book of Ecclesiastes, he shrugged off his black robe.  The congregation sat stunned, realizing their Pastor was wearing a military uniform.  Hence, the Reverend Muhlenberg’s actions birthed the Black-Robed Regiment.

The British coined the name “Black-Robed Regiment” as they blamed these courageous Clergyman for American Independence.  Modern historians write:

“There is not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been discussed by the New England clergy before 1763.”  (The New England Clergy and the American Revolution, by Alice M. Baldwin)

Founding Fathers also noted the significant role played by men who stood behind a pulpit.  John Adams remarked,

“The pulpits have thundered.”

Godly men pounded their lecterns reminding their congregations from whence they came.  Sermons stoked the fires of patriotism.  Adams singled out several ministers…

“…Characters the most conspicuous, the most ardent, and influential” in the “awakening and a revival of American principles and feelings” that led to American Independence.  (The Works of John Adams)

Many colonial pastors admonished their congregations to prepare for revolt, and several ministers stepped from behind the pulpit and joined their congregants on the front lines.  In 1898, Bishop Charles Galloway said,

“Mighty men they were, of iron nerve and strong hand and unblanched cheek and heart of flame.  God needed not reeds shaken by the wind, not men clothed in soft raiment, but heroes of hardihood and lofty courage…And such were the sons of the mighty who responded to the Divine call.”

Today, America needs Clergymen to rise up once again.  Many pastors shy away from social issues and political ideologies for fear of alienating members of their congregations or fearing unwanted attention from the ACLU.  Pastors need not endorse candidates to counter the culture.  Delivering pro-life messages or sermons on traditional marriage should be on the preaching agenda.  Currently, our government and elected officials appear to be in a rush to pass legislation antithetical to the teachings of the Word of God.  For the sake of our future generations, Pastors and Christian lay people need to commit themselves to righting America’s spiritual ship.  Famed Reverend Charles Finney of the Second Great Awakening delivered the following admonition,

“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits.  If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.  If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If the Church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.  Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren, but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

May Christians Stand.
