What I am about to say will close the doors for me to preach in Atlanta. That is sad because it is a great city with many powerful churches. It is even possible that some will try to accuse me of being racist. A charge that I will summarily ignore. So don’t bother.
Atlanta is a snapshot of what happened Tuesday in urban areas across America. Let me begin by quoting Don Lemon, “White men are the biggest terror threat.” He says that remark is not racist because statistics bear it out. Fair enough.
Now let me give you some statistics. 90% of the African American vote in Atlanta went to the Democratic Party. We know that there are many black mega churches in Atlanta. It is impossible that only non-Christians voted last Tuesday. We are left with the inescapable conclusion that born-again and Spirit-filled Christians in large numbers voted for the Democratic Party. That is not racist it is simply a fact.
This is not just true in Atlanta. It is also very true in Houston. For that matter every city in America.
It is no surprise how this happened. It is the pulpit’s fault. Believers are fed all the verses on blessing and few that relate to conscience. This is how they can walk into a voting booth oblivious to the fact that the Democratic Party has declared war on the Bible. Hillary Clinton said, “we must change religious beliefs.”
Even if you buy the myth that Trump is a white-supremacist…a charge that even his avowed enemies find hard to say with a straight face, you are not innocent from knowing what you are voting for. A vote is not a statement just of what you are against but also what you are for.
What does the Bible say about abortion? Psalm 139:13 says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. The Bible clearly teaches that a fetus is a person not a glob of flesh.
Have you ever wondered why Planned Parenthood fights so hard to convince a fetus is not a person? Even they know, if a fetus is indeed a person abortion is taking a human life.
Therefore, abortion is murder. Of one’s own child! Late-term abortion is out and out savagery. The Democratic party not only defends late term abortion, they have said women “should celebrate our abortions.”
Democrats say that portions of the Word of God are hateful. We know the portions they mean. They are crusading to defend every sexual sin condemned in the Bible.
It is possible that your pastor soft-peddles or ignores these verses and tells you that grace covers this. The Bible says different, “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? The Democratic Party is not just saying they disagree with the Bible but that teaching certain parts of it should be banned because it is hate speech. Do you want the Bible banned? If we let them ban certain parts what is to keep them from banning it all.
My message is to all races. You can’t leave Jesus out of the voting booth. God will hold you accountable. God also holds pastors accountable for hold back vital truth and creating this moral confusion by not teaching the Bible.
A famous Christian Country and Western singer was asked why she supported same sex marriage. She said, “my pastor told me not to judge.” There it is. The Body of Christ is having what my good friend Dusty Kemp calls “an out of Bible experience.”
Many California Christians especially suffer from Biblical malnutrition. They can’t even fathom what is wrong with so many things that the Word of God calls sin.
America is seeing once again the damage done by Christians detached from their Bible. You raise your hands in worship. You sit in church and open your Bible and declare it to be the Word of God, and then you go and vote for the avowed enemy of the Bible? If you did that, then unlike the blessed man of Psalm one “who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly” you did.
