DNC… I Don’t Understand…

Maybe I’m simple… maybe I’m old school… maybe I’m old.  But maybe I’m right…

I don’t understand…

Why the Democratic leadership removed “God” from their platform (I heard their “reasons” and don’t agree with the rationale),

Why there were so many on the floor of the convention who were so upset when God was reinserted back into the platform,

How anyone can affirm a national platform that is staunchly pro-abortion,

How same sex marriage can be touted as a right by national leaders and the judiciary?

I have a problem that a group desiring to lead the nation would even think of… much less actually carry out… removing God from their platform.  That is a HUGE statement of what the real leadership believes and desires.  And don’t think for one minute THE leader of that group didn’t sign off on it.

I have a problem with abortion (Just because something is legal does NOT make it right).  Therefore I refuse to support a platform that affirms and promotes abortion.

I have a problem with same sex marriage and I refuse to support a platform that affirms and promotes it.

Maybe I do understand.  Maybe we are experiencing the continuation of Romans 1:21 ff…

Although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22  Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up… 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 28  Since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

  1. They don’t like what God says is right, just or moral. They had to get rid of God from their platform, they really didn’t have a choice, he was getting in the way.

    Jeremiah 6:16 This is what the Lord says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’

    Right on point Ron. Good post. There is no question that they followed their beliefs when they first took God out of their platform. That is why chaos ensued when they tried to put one simple acknowledgement of God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel back in the platform. There is also no question that their leader approved despite their efforts to convince the public that his intervention was the reason for their about face. He may have intervened to get God and Jerusalem back in the platform, but only after seeing the outrage that followed and the inane attempts by his followers to defend the indefensible.

    How wonderfully put, Br. Ron. This is right on the mark. The only reason God was mockingly reinserted was to hopefully gain a few votes. I am deeply disturbed about his way of thinking and have written him to let him, meaning the President, know how I feel. The response I got back was a form letter to let me know that he endorsed those things because he believed is equal treatment for all. We are treading on dangerous ground when we begin endorsing and supporting those things that are contrary to God’s teachings. I told him this too. But I do not support him and pray that the majority of Americans will reject him as well.

    I am reminded of this passage in the scriptures 2 Chronicles 7:22, “Then they will say, ‘Because they abandoned the Lord, the God of their fathers who brought them out of the land of Egypt and laid hold on other gods and worshiped them and served them. Therefore he has brought all this disaster on them.’”

    Pray for Harvesters! As we can see, there is Much work to do!!
