All Christians who read the Bible are well acquainted with the fact that there are traditionally the four canonical gospels referred to that were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, four of the early followers of Jesus Christ. The Gospels tell us of the life of Jesus, his wondrous works and miracles, his eventual crucifixion at the hands of Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate resurrection leading to the creation of Christianity, one of the major religions practiced in the world today.
History tells us that the four recognized gospels were probably written between the years AD 66 and AD 110, and each one telling in their own interpretive way the life of Jesus Christ and his divine role.
Though they may differ in some ways, the gospels teach us some basic truths laid down by Jesus Christ. Included in these truths are that human life is precious, including the life of the unborn in the womb. While the word ‘abortion’ itself does not exist in any Bible translation, the Bible clearly says that the killing of an unborn child is “murder”. And goes on to say that “anyone who causes the death of an infant in the womb must pay with his own life”. That seems pretty cut and dried, no wiggle room there.
And then you have the issue of homosexuality and how it is viewed in the bible. According to biblical interpretation homosexuality is condemned because it overturns the fundamental design by God of human relationships, which describes the complementary relationship between a man and a woman. In 1st Corinthians it states pretty clearly that homosexuals, along with a bunch of other miscreants won’t be inheriting the Kingdom of Heaven. Again, no real wiggle room there.
Certainly there are those defenders of abortion as well as practitioners of homosexuality who will take passages contained in scripture and twist them whatever way they need to in order to justify what they do. It’s the way of things now, to perform whatever moral gyrations one has to in order to feel better about themselves.
Which brings us to the Gospel according to Elizabeth and Pete, and all the other twenty-something Socialist Democrats currently running for the party’s nomination for President of the United States.
Each and every one of them has defended ending the life of an infant right up until the moment of birth. Each of them publicly celebrates the practice of homosexuality, including homosexual marriage, as well as enthusiastically defending the rights of those suffering from the mental illness of transgenderism. If you feel differently for moral and religious reasons you’re condemned by them as a “hater”.
Recently Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg tried to lay claim to being good Christians, when in reality they might be leaders of what can only be called the new Progressive Christianity movement. Apparently it’s a movement that teaches one that as long as you practice a progressively pure ideology, then anything goes. No consequences for your choices and decisions. More than enough wiggle room to allow for whatever morally repugnant, deviant, or other hedonistic practice that one might want to engage in. Absolution provided by the Socialist Democrats!
Abortion and the homosexual agenda are certainly controversial subjects with about as many opinions about them as there are abortions performed annually in America, literally millions.
In the case of homosexuals personally I could care less what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms, as long as innocent children and farm animals aren’t involved. They will ultimately answer for it, as all of us will for our transgressions and shortcomings. But what I do take umbrage to is Socialist Democrats trying to convince us that they have anything in common with the Christian Evangelical community.
Their last candidate for president was the most dishonest, corrupt, and despicable politician in American history to ever run for the highest office in the land. They knew it, and they let it happen anyway. So I certainly don’t need to hear preaching of the Gospel according to Socialist Democrats. Nor do I want any lecturing from them about morality or religion, particularly when they haven’t a clue about what they’re talking.
