To Lead Astray…Even The Elect
The Mind of Christ
To Lead Astray…Even The Elect
Those who are unspiritual do not receive the gifts of God’s Spirit, for they are foolishness to them, and they are unable to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. Those who are spiritual discern all things, and they are themselves subject to no one else’s scrutiny.? “For who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?”But WE have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:14-16
I have taken to writing what I see as a glaring hole in the way things are presented today in our politically correct milieu. There seems to be so much fear out there when it comes to the issues of sodomy, race, abortion and the like, that people on the right side of these issues are afraid to even call the sky blue on a clear day. Liberals use euphemisms like “women’s health” to justify the wholesale murder of innocent children in a womb. Why is there a need for these euphemisms if aborting a life in a womb is so pleasing to God? Is abortion a sin that needs to be repented of or not? Is it the murder of a child that God, the Author of life, created or not? If these two questions are hard for you to answer then you are so indoctrinated with political correct dogma I fear for your soul. Of course it is murder and of course it is not pleasing to God to kill His children.
I haven’t heard a TV preacher yet speak the unadulterated truth about even this one issue for fear of looking to Old Testament like (meaning = not compassionate enough). Jesus said of John the Baptist that none was greater than him of all the prophets and he was beheaded because he called adultery, “adultery.” He didn’t use a euphemism the ease the ugliness of what Herod (the king) had done. One of the first things the new president has done is to sign the executive order to put back into place a policy that will use your tax dollars to make it much easier to murder more babies here and overseas. Is abortion murder? YES! The fact that we as Christians even have to debate this is absurd! The Scriptures are so very clear on this that it pains my soul to see how muddied we have become with the lies of the left.
“This is what the Lord says, who made you, who formed you in your mother’s body, who will help you;” Isa.44:2 NCV In Isa. 44:21 – The Lord tells us to remember this… and then goes on to say:24 "This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself, 25 who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, NIV
The fact that abortion is the killing of those precious to God is the “milk” of the word! It is not a deep concept. But it shows you how far we have fallen that this truth has to constantly be re-established even among believers!
Which brings me to the issue of aborting a life today. How has this become a “minor” issue? How has this become less important than the color of a man’s skin or the state of the economy? Well, obviously it is the result of the overwhelming deluge of the liberal press making one issue appear far more critical than it actually is; while ignoring the murdering of people in the womb. They euphemize the killings by calling it women’s health issues and using propaganda to cast doubt that it is even life and completely ignore the issue of who is the very Source of that life.
Sadly, we Christians go happily on our way voting for people who will continue the mass murdering of our children. Judgment will begin with us. May God have mercy on us and give us opportunity to repent of this most heinous offense before God.
Does God care about war and about poverty and about social injustice? Duh? I just love how the left can accuse Christians of not caring about these issues when it was Christians who fought with their lives against slavery around the world including England and America. But somehow if we don’t make race inequity our number one concern we are somehow racist—far from it. There are black babies and white babies and brown babies and red babies and yellow babies all being sacrificed to the god of self-indulgent convenience. These killings are no different than the pagan sacrifices of babies to the fires of Molech referenced in the Bible.
Leviticus 20:3 I will set my face against that man and I will cut him off from his people; for by giving his children to Molech, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name.
How is burning child in the womb with a saline solution any different? Hear me! There is no difference in the eyes of the One who gives life! We have compromised our most precious gift, that of the innocent lives of our children because we have become dull. Our hearts have become glazed over with the fear of being accused of being racist or compassionless or a radical fundamentalist.
I have heard many times the liberal left trying to link fundamental Christianity to radical Islam. How pathetic is this? One is fighting for the life of children to be born while the other is fighting for the death of all, including children, who refuse to agree with their culture of death. My weapon of choice is the unadulterated truth spoken in love, unapologetically. Their weapon of choice, terror. True Christians know very clearly 2 Corinthians 10:4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. Why is there not a tumultuous outcry against this hideous accusation against the Christian faith. We all agree that under the guise of Christianity some horrible things have been done in the past. A past filled with superstition and institutionalized Christianity. Those who have the Spirit, those who have the Mind of Christ, know these people in no way represent the Christ who laid down His life for who so ever will accept His life as a sacrifice for their sin and salvation. I think we have forgotten the battle between the spirits and the Spirit. I don’t excuse the liberal press for this hateful comparison that has no basis in reality because Christians have so flooded this world with acts of sacrificial kindness that it would fill their papers and newscasts everyday if they so chose to report them. But they do not have the Spirit nor the Mind of Christ so I understand their ignorance but not their hateful attacks.
We must remember that there is a battle in the spiritual realms. The prize--hearts, minds and ultimately the eternal soul’s destination. Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Also the Word of God is very clear that the natural mind does not comprehend the mind of Christ as the theme verse of this blog contends. We also read in Galatians 5:17, For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other…. So the reality that we are in a war for truth should be no surprise to the true born again believer who is seeking to please God by loving and serving others. What so alarms my soul is how utterly shallow our faith has become that we are so willing to compromise the most precious, the most vital, the critical truths of God’s Word because we are so afraid of being tagged a bigot or racist or whatever by the liberal media. These people have no spiritual discernment. They do not have the mind of Christ nor the Spirit of Life living with-in them. My heart breaks every time I see a minister on TV apologize for speaking the truth to those who are destitute of the Spirit. They cave under the pressure of a false worldly standard propagated upon our society by a godless liberal press. They should use this as an opportunity to even further proclaim and clarify why they said what they said in light of God’s Word, mercy and grace.
Did I say godless liberal press? I have seen surveys that say that over 90% of national journalists believe that you don’t have to believe in God to be moral. Surely their chosen moral value system will not line up with their Creator's value system. (He is their Creator whether they acknowledge Him or not.) They stand in judgment of God’s Word instead of seeing that God’s Word is the ultimate Standard. So why should we care what they say except to see it as an opportunity to more enthusiastically proclaim the truth in love. Listen, if we cave into their godless views, we will not be able to preach and teach basic truths in God’s Word—even so basic as proper sexual behavior! Perhaps that will be my next writing.
For now I want us to simply see that we have elected a man into the most powerful office in the world that has views on the sanctity of life that I believe are opposed to the Creator’s. Elections have serious life and death consequences. We have no right to kill our children in or out of the womb. But we have put ourselves on a throne that belongs to the One and only Creator. This blog is not an attack on the new president but a cry for clarity, a cry for the true church to stand up and be heard. This is the glaring question—How can we think that the blood of these innocent babies will not be on our hands if we vote for the one who promotes this massacre of not only our children but children all over the world? If you are a Christian and you voted for Obama and haven’t considered this issue of life and death, then you are responsible for your vote and for the actions of the one you voted into office. How can you not know you bare responsibility for his actions? How can you reconcile this? Will God wink at this or is it another one of those sins for which our Gracious Savior hung on that horrible cross? What we do matters.
Has God allowed Obama to be the 44th president of the United States? I believe He has – whether this is a judgment by giving us what we asked for or a true deliverance has yet to be seen. Of course he has already signed the executive order that will swing wide open the gate to kill more babies just like he said he would. He had the most liberal voting record in all the Senate. Yet I have talked with some Christians and read commentary like that of a catholic bishop that justifies supporting Obama, buying into the secular value system. I also noticed that the bishop hadn’t once cited Scripture to support his view. He basically believed that the abortion battle is unwinnable so why fight it! Let’s focus on other intrinsic evils! I believe that anything we can do to make it harder to kill babies is a step in the right direction even if it only saves one helpless child. If you think God will not hold this nation accountable for all the blood that has already been shed, you are gravely mistaken.
Pray hard for Obama, that his heart will be totally surrendered to Jesus and that he would submit his will, mind and strength to the authority of God’s Word and not the foolishness of man’s fallen thinking. Pray that he will truly repent and be born again and have the Spirit in him and have The Mind of Christ.
