2018 Midterm Elections – e pluribus non unum

Todd Starnes: The new chairman of the Allegheny County Democratic Party in Pennsylvania was forced to resign over a social media post that declared, “ I stand for the flag, kneel at the cross.”

Atheism, both practical and overt, is the governing spiritual force within the contemporary Democratic Party.

As I have before written, the clamor for so-called democratic socialism is practical atheism. Socialists do not know the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Jehovah-Jireh, The-Lord-Will-Provide, of Genesis 22:12-14. Instead of Jehovah-Jireh, they look to the state as their provider. Thus the Marxist-socialists demand free stuff – free education, free medical care, guaranteed incomes, etc.

What do I mean by practical atheism? The people who profess to be Christians but campaign for socialism and abortion-on-demand prove themselves atheists in practice, thus practical atheism.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20, Leviticus 24:17, Proverbs 14:27, 2 Samuel 12:15-23, and Exodus 20:13 testify to the fact life comes from God and is precious to him.

The Declaration of Independence demonstrates the Christian worldview of our Founding Fathers as expressed in the second paragraph: “We hold these truths to be self-evident…that all men are created…endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

A great many Democrats share the illusion of the Democratic Party as “a big tent party”, “a place for all of us and all of our views” as does Mark Salvas, the subject of Todd Starnes’ story.

The 44th president was and is a practical atheist. The 45th is not.

Businessman Donald Trump is a practical Christian, a new creature in Christ.

We the People of the United States of America are embroiled in a life-and-death struggle for the soul of this nation. You and I saw this first-hand in the Judiciary Committee hearings where the ideological attack on a Christian sitting Federal Judge by the entire Democratic Party was on display.

Which political party will win? Neither. Take heart in the Word of God.

Do not put your trust in [political parties],
Nor in a [particular candidate], in whom there is no help.
Psalm 146:3

Give us help from trouble,
For the help of man is useless.
Through God we will do valiantly,
For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
Psalm 60:11-12

By all means, block-walk, labor to get out the vote. However, it will not be our Republican platform that will move the undecided to vote for Republican candidates. It will be our love that wins them over.

1 John 4:8 – “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

Before you go out to win voters, first choose to love those who oppose you.

Soli Deo Gloria
