For some, it's Nothing; for me, it’s MORALS

By: Woody Godbey

I made a statement that I didn't leave the democratic party when I voted for Reagan but the Democratic Party left me. What I meant by that was morally more than politically but they go together. I can't be a part of a political party who embraces homosexuality, same sex marriage, abortion and a ton of other issues that go against Gods commandments and Christian values.

It gripes me to hear the abortionist say that the Bible is silent on when life begins. Here is an easy to read version of what David said about his beginnings. "For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, he days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!" (Psalm 139:13-17)

God himself puts us together in our mother's womb and determines the span of our lives. The life growing inside the womb is "fearfully and wonderfully made." It is not a blob of tissue, as some would have us believe. God knit together a precious human person. You can believe what you want to, but a Christian must look at when life begins through the lens of Scripture and disregard the Democrats definition and Planned Parenthoods manifesto. Ask yourself, "What does God say?"

The Bible says, "He that knows to do good and does not, to him it is sin." So if a person knows that abortion is sin and knowingly supports a political person or party who embraces it, are they sinning? I'll just say this, as a Christian I will not knowingly vote or support a person or political party who embraces and promotes abortion. It's not only the democrats, I will not vote for anyone who doesn't come to the table with Christian morals and family values. I'll stay at home before I do that. Some might say, you have to vote for the lesser of the two evils or it's un-American not to vote. I know but I have a problem supporting people who "embrace" blatant sin!

It's sad, but when it comes to abortion many women decide to abort a baby based on how they personally "feel" about it. You can thank the radical feminist movement that helped deliver Roe v. Wade to desperate women and now it's legal to terminate a life because, among other reasons, the pregnancy was unplanned, therefore inconvenient.

Abortion is not the only moral issue Christians face today. What about homosexuality? And on this issue the Bible is definitely not silent. Look at what God says about it, Genesis 19, Romans 1:26-29, 2 Peter 2:5-9 and Jude 7. It is clear from Scripture that God deems sodomy an extreme sin. So, should Christians believe what the Bible says or believe the propaganda coming from the democrats and radical "gay" activists who have a political agenda? Rosie, Oprah, Whoopi and Ellen have more influence than God. What a shame!

If you're a liberal, stop kidding yourselves, homosexual sex goes contrary to the way God designed the human body. That's a no brainer folks! Homosexual sex is unnatural. In Romans 1:26-31 no less than twenty-three punishable sins are listed with homosexuality numero uno. Here it is in an easy to read version, "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion" (Romans 1:26, 27). What Paul is saying is that lesbians and "gays" suffer in their mind, emotions and body for their "shameful lusts." Both the desire and the act of homosexuality are condemned in the Bible as sin.

Committed Christians should find abortion and homosexuality deplorable. Which raises the question, "What exactly does is mean to be a committed Christian?" Listen to what the Apostle Paul says, "We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, 'I know him,' but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did" (1 John 2:3-6).

In case you haven't noticed, there are a multitude of fakers in churches, false converts. A false convert doesn't know Him (see 1 John 2:3-4, 1 John 4:6-8). He fakes it, but time exposes his hypocrisy. Judas is a good example of a false convert. He faked it for 3 ½ years. He was so trusted, he looked after the finances, but the Bible says that he was a thief (see John 12:6). When Jesus said that one of the disciples would betray Him, they said, "Is it I, Lord?" They suspected themselves, rather than the trusted treasurer. When Judas went out to betray Jesus, some of the disciples thought that he went to give money to the poor. He fooled everyone but God. The Scriptures tell us that Jesus knew from the beginning who would betray Him.

As a Christian what are we to do about the mess we're in? Well, one thing we can do is to think biblically. Before making any decision God's people must ask themselves, "What does the Bible say?" God Bless!
