The hypocrisy of Trump, the GOP, and Evangelicals over Baby Alfie

Published

on

The year was 1982 when a baby boy who became known as Baby Doe—because giving the child a name would validate his life—was born in Bloomington, Indiana. The boy was born with two conditions: Down Syndrome and a correctable birth defect that made eating food orally impossible. Instead of having the surgery done, parents accepted the advice of an obstetrician who advised that the parents do nothing and thus allow the boy to die of dehydration or starvation after a few days. According to the doctor, being a Down Syndrome baby meant that the child’s life was not worth living.

“I believe there are things that are worse than having put [such] a child die, and one of them is that it might live.”

Though an older story, Baby Doe is an example of how America is guilty of murdering the innocent for the sake of convenience. Since Roe v. Wade, America has slaughtered over 60 million Baby Does while still in the womb. And while it’s tempting to judge another country for practicing infanticide, we will be equally judged by the ultimate judge for doing the same thing.

And it isn’t changing anytime soon.

Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood is America’s primary provider of baby-killing services, the budget deal passed by Donald Trump and the GOP provides approximately $1 billion to Planned Parenthood to finance the murder of approximately 600,000 unborn Baby Does during the next two years.

Let’s not forget the socialized medicine part of the equation either. The death panels in Great Britain decided to kill Baby Alfie, and under Obamacare, similar attitudes about who is worthy to receive health care are being formed. Despite promises to repeal Obamacare and stop America’s march toward socialized medicine, Trump and the GOP refused to repeal Obamacare, and they continue to look for ways to save it.

As we approach the midterm election, the Gang Of Phonies are resorting to and relying on the make-a-promise/break-a-promise/repeat playbook they always use when they seek votes and money they haven’t earned. And unfortunately, the Fellowship of Pharisees surrounding Trump and supporting the Republicans continue to play along as they exchange G-O-D for G-O-P.

Preaching the gospel of “cheap grace,” these heretics and charlatans continue to proclaim that Trump is God’s anointed as they defend his immoral behavior and boldly declare that he is “the most pro-life president ever.” Meanwhile, Jerry Falwell, Jr. is warning the body of Christ to reject “fake Republicans,” which translated simply means any Republican who refuses to support Trump unconditionally. Tax cuts and a seat at Trump’s table are paramount to pesky trivialities like abortion and infanticide of millions of Baby Does.

I’m often criticized by Trump-humpers and defenders of the lying liars in the GOP for demanding that our political leaders be ethical men and women of integrity. They say that my expectations are too high; that such “perfection” doesn’t exist. In reality, they are simply attempting to rationalize their decision to compromise their convictions and to defend their slothfulness as they perpetuate the binary lesser-of-two-evils lie that is Washington politics.

In the end, America continues doing the same thing over and over, allowing the status quo to continue while babies—born and unborn—are murdered for being the wrong sex, having Down Syndrome, being a burden on the healthcare system, and for simply being a disposable inconvenience to a woman’s “right” to her body.

Baby Alfie, like literally millions of babies before him, is the tragic story of how little we regard God’s greatest gift; the foundation of our existence and our God-given rights . . . LIFE!

While it’s right to be outraged over Alfie’s murder at the hands of doctors and authorities and to demand justice for his death, we need to realize that we are guilty of the same deeds and that we deserve and will likely receive the same judgment.

I leave you with these prophetic-sounding words from Thomas Jefferson as etched in stone at the Jefferson Memorial:

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are a gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

Acts 17:11 – ‘searched the scriptures daily’

Published

on

Acts 17:11 searched the scriptures daily

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. – Acts 17:11 (KJV)

We’ve talked before about doing daily Bible study, then we made sure to expand on what we were promoting by reminding people that Christianity itself should not be a task. Now, we’ll go to the source (as we should have done from the beginning) and point to scriptural backing that we are not only supposed to read the Bible, but to search it and use at as the ultimate reference.

This verse is often quoted out of contest. It points to the Bereans as true students of the Word. There are even ministries today who herald to the Bereans and continue in the works that were alluded to in this chapter. The reality is this: the Bereans were Jews who studied fervently and as a result they were easily converted to belief in Yeshua as the Messiah.

If there’s any one takeaway from this (other than the call to continuously study and find truth in the Bible by applying the teachings of the Bible itself), it’s that those who are the most steadfast in their studies, whether it’s of the Bible or of this world, are the ones who are easiest to bring to the truth. Christianity and all religions have gained an unfortunate label of being only for the “weak of mind” or gullible people. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s not necessarily about intelligence. It’s about discernment. Those who see the world through the lens of common sense and an unbiased intellect are the most likely to come to the faith. They simply need a little Biblical worldview prompting.

Petition Capitol Hill for Term Limits

Sign the petition. We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.

Matthew 22:37 – ‘love the Lord thy God’

Published

Matthew 2237 love the Lord thy God

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. – Matthew 22:37 (KJV)

We’ve all heard this verse, but have we really contemplated it? This is a verse that sits in the middle of many different things happening. The Pharisees and Sadducees were questioning Him. His answers were profound and defining.

This important portion of this message is echoed three times: all. Love thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all they mind. This is the most important Commandment according to Yeshua.

Scouts BSA: Proof that moral leadership matters in life

Scouts BSA Proof that moral leadership matters in life

In the Age of Trump, where the Fellowship of the Pharisees and their so-called evangelical followers have given “God’s chosen president” a “mulligan” for his sexually immoral past in exchange for a seat at his table, the damage being done to the Gospel of Christ is obvious.

Another consequence of this kind of hypocrisy has been the destruction of moral leadership in nearly every area of American life. For example, let’s take a look at Scouts BSA, formerly known as the Boy Scouts of America.

In a report by NBC New York yesterday, we learned that nearly 8,000 adults are suspected of sexually abusing more than 12,000 children in the Boy Scouts over the years, and that these incidents have been kept secret according to victim’s rights attorney Jeff Anderson.

“For many, many years there’s been an excavation of what are called the ‘perversion files’—those are files held and hoarded at the Boy Scouts of America headquarters.

“Those ‘perversion files’ that they’ve had reflect that they have removed thousands of offenders of childhood sexual abuse over the years and they’ve kept that in files secretly.”

While the abuse appears to have been going on since the 1940s, recent decisions by the Boy Scouts created an environment that essentially guaranteed it would happen with greater frequency, thanks to the institution of LGBT-friendly changes to their leadership requirements.

In the summer of 2015, then-president of the Boy Scouts and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates abandoned the organization’s commitment to develop moral character by lifting the ban on homosexuals serving as leaders due to fears of possible lawsuits.

The lawsuit excuse was a lie as the Supreme Court had already upheld the BSA’s right to exclude homosexuals. In reality, Gates, the guy responsible for ending the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, simply wanted to open scouting to the LGBT community, regardless of any consequences. Moral considerations be damned.

Here’s an irony for you. Scouts BSA announced a few months ago it may go bankrupt due to the lawsuits over sexual abuse and declining membership. I guess Gates missed that one.

By the way, Scouts BSA also made a policy change in February 2017 to recognize children by their “gender identity,” and the reason Boy Scouts of America changed the name to Scouts BSA is because it’s now open to girls. How long will it be before we hear about a “straight” leader sexually molesting these new additions to the Boy Scouts?

In the end, however, it’s not an LGBT or straight issue; it’s a moral leadership issue. Unfortunately, morality no longer exists in the Boy Scouts because their first duty to God no longer exists, due in no small part to the rise of the lukewarm church and cheap grace theology.

Moral leadership matters in life; and in politics as well. But we’ll never see it again in America unless something changes in the heart of the church.
