The "religious left"

(Matthew 7:21-23)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord bless me and my family today. Help us to never forget to honor You and praise Your holy name. Thank You for Your blessings. Let us be good stewards of those blessings and never forget to reach out to others and be a blessing to those who cross our path each day. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: For decades now I have been warning people of the “religious left,” the “fake church,” and those who call themselves Christians yet adopt beliefs that are in total contradiction to the Bible. So it is no wonder that satan will use such minions to persuade weak Believers to support a lifetime baby-killer, supporter of sexual deviants and perverse marriage, and the enemies of Israel for President! Josh Dickson, an evangelical Christian who has been active in the Democratic Party for nearly 10 years, was appointed National Faith Engagement director for the Biden campaign. Right away red whistles and bells should be going off, since evangelical Christian active in the Democratic Party, Faith Engagement Director for the Biden campaign are oxymorons! A recent Christian Post article said Dickson was born into a conservative family in which many attended Moody Bible Institute, and his upbringing involved attending church on Sundays and Wednesdays. He stated that his faith also led him into the public service arena after college and chose to be a teacher in the South Side of Chicago. He said that in his first year as a teacher he started to see a lot of systemic injustice in our country, and through the life experiences of his students and their parents and the community he started to look more deeply in the Scriptures. Dickson was inspired to change his political affiliation after reading then Sen. Barack Obama’s bestselling book, “The Audacity of Hope.” Dickson believes some evangelicals are moving toward supporting Biden. An example of this, he said, is seeing evangelical leaders' embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement. Again, NO TRUE EVANGELICAL LEADER would be embracing a Marxist movement that seeks to destroy the nuclear family as is the stated goal of the BLM movement! Dickson believes that Biden, a practicing Catholic, is an authentic man of faith whose faith and values inform his political participation. THERE YOU GO! WHAT FAITH HAS INFORMED JOE BIDEN TO VOTE 100% OF THE TIME OVER A 47 YEAR POLITICAL CAREER TO SLAUGHTER INNOCENT BABIES? WHAT FAITH HAS INFORMED JOE BIDEN TO SUPPORT AND ADVOCATE FOR SEXUAL DEVIANCY AND PERVERTING GOD’S HOLY INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE? WHAT FAITH HAS INFORMED JOE BIDEN TO SUPPORT THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL? Dickson is the type of “Christian” I have warned you about, whose life if NOT guided by God’s Word but by this fallen world. Joe Biden, based on his 47 years in public life is no man of faith, at least not the Christian faith! If God allows Joe Biden to be elected President, he will be nothing more than a puppet for Barack Obama’s 3rd term. The real persecution of Christians in this nation, the first REAL PERSECUTION we will have ever really endured on this soil will begin January 20th 2021!

"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" Luke 6:46

The "religious left." In case you have been sleeping, there is a new group of people in our nation who call themselves the "religious left." This is a relatively new term so you may not be familiar with it. That is why I felt it was so critical to take the time today to insure you not only understood what it means, but who actually makes up this new group of people. Forty years ago, this group didn't even exist. They have actually evolved and grown tremendously over the past decade.

The "religious left" is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals. Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the "religious right" or the "Christian right." The "Christian right" is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political issues.

These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage, family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive to remove God from the public square. Those in the "religious left" actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, immigration, social justice, welfare, and education.

There is nothing wrong with pursing these noble social issues, Believers should be more involved on those fronts. The problem with this group is their anti-Biblical position on the key spiritual issues of our day and their involvement in these ecumenical movements that require you to set aside the Absolute Truths of the Bible.

I watched with interest many media reports about faith with an advocate of baby killing during his 47 years of public service, Joe Biden. He dealt with various faith-related issues in the context of his own personal faith. I watched in amazement as he talked about how important his faith was, and how it guided him, gave him strength, and went out of their way to position himself as a man of great faith.

Like my dear mother used to tell me, talk is cheap. I refuse to try and judge someone’s heart, that is something only God can and will do. However, I have every right to judge people on their actions in accordance with God's Word. How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to support the legalized slaughter of over 4,000 innocent babies every day? How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to redefine God's Holy Institution of Marriage? How can you say you are a person of faith, yet support special rights for people who have chosen to engage in perverted sex acts God calls an abomination, including their ability to adopt children into their deviant lifestyle? How can you call yourself a person of faith and support the enemies of Israel?

I guess the real question becomes, what is the faith of those in the religious left really in? It is inconsistent to say you are person of faith yet continually take a stand in complete opposition to God's Word. Jesus said that if you love Me, you will obey Me. That means His Word. Of course, those in the "religious left" has been born out of the liberal "churches" of our day who make a mockery of Christ as they operate in open rebellion to the Truth of the Bible while claiming to be followers of Christ.

Those in the religious left support the legalized slaughter of babies, redefining marriage to include men with men and women with women, perverting the family by brining children into homes with homosexual parents, and embrace ecumenical fellowships with all of the cults and false religions of the world. They deny the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, have rejected God's Word for the Absolute Truth it represents, and have bought into the lie of the world that there are "many roads that lead to God." These are the people who make up the "religious left!"

I love you and care about you so much. It is beyond me how a person can consider themselves a Christian, which means they are a follower of Christ and automatically a follower of His Word, yet take a public position in complete opposition to that Word. You better wake up, since this is the largest growing segment of Christendom, this apostate group who calls themselves Christians but go to churches who operate in complete rebellion to Christ and the Bible.

This is the group that is Biblically illiterate since they don't even believe the Bible to be true. These are the people who see nothing wrong with electing a member of a satanic cult to the White House because they think a Mormon is a Christian. They are the politically correct crowd who has bought the lie a woman has the right to kill her baby. They are the group who lambastes those who speak out against the sin of homosexuality, calling them names like "intolerant" and "hateful."

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,
