Dr. Ben Carson Is Right - Why Would Any Traditional Christian Want A Muslim President...?

Updated on September 23, 2015

Dr. Ben Carson Is Right - Why Would Any Traditional Christian Want A Muslim President?

Years ago, in this very forum, I wrote why I could not, in good Traditional Christian conscience, support Governor Mitt Romney for President because of his Mormon Faith, which, to me, is idol worship and a grave offense to Traditional Christianity. The sick irony is that Governor Romney is more Christian than the professed Christian President Obama says he is. A President Romney would never in a million years support gay marriage or gives his perverted, demonic blessings to the ongoing murder of babies via Abortion - what did President Obama recently say to his 'peeps' at Planned Murderhood (Parenthood): 'that they are doing the Lord's work.'

I am indeed a lawyer by training... but among my average grades, I did excel in Con-Law and notwithstanding what Article 6 of our vaunted Constitution says about not having no religious tests for being President, like Dr. Ben Carson, what Traditional Christian would want a Muslim for a President? For the Traditional Christian, the American Constitution is not a substitute for the Bible nor does it take precedence over the Bible and its Holy, sacred teachings. Furthermore, I do not treat the Founding Fathers, brilliant as they were, like any of the sojourning Pilgrim pillars of the Bible nor can the former compare morally to the latter... Thomas Jefferson has 'nothing' on the Apostle Paul!

The Traditional Christian cannot or should not accept anything that is anathema to our Christian Faith, much less our governance, even if our secular Constitution permits such liberties. Though we respect the principles in our Constitution, if there are principles that conflict with the tenets of the Bible... the Traditional Christian must always - not that we do all the time - choose the Bible. It is why we, as Traditional Christians, do not support the killing of babies through Abortion, notwithstanding the fact that the Supreme Court found, supposedly in our Constitution in 1973, the right to murder children (Roe v. Wade, which permits Abortion) or do we support the recent Court decision that sanctioned gay nuptials. It is in our Bible, as a matter of fact, our first law, the first Commandment proscribed that we should have no other god, but Christ Jesus... and if this is so, why would Dr. Ben Carson or any other Traditional Christian want a Muslim as President...?

Do not tell me that often repeated lie from the pit of Hell that the Muslim god is the same as the Lord of the Bible - once again, in the four Gospels, the Lord Jesus told his Disciples to go and preach His Gospel to all the world... including Saudi Arabia (Mark 15:16; and Matthew 28:19). Moreover, listen to what is written in the Gospel of John 14:16, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through Me." It must be noted that the Apostle Paul, when he first got converted, went to Saudi Arabia and I am certain that if the Muslim faith were established then, the Apostle to the Gentiles would have seen it as worshipping idols, an affront to the Biblical First Commandment. The omniscient God, through His Son Christ Jesus, of the Bible showed and inspired the Apostle Paul to write that if anyone comes preaching a different/another Gospel - Muslim/Sharia Law or Mormonism - even if it were from an angel of light, including Mohammed or Joseph Smith, that they be accursed (Galatians 1:8).

The chutzpah of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is having the nerve to call for Dr. Ben Carson to drop out of the Republican nominating process - does not Mr. Carson have a First Amendment right to speak too? If the public at large has a problem with Dr. Carson's position on having a Muslim for President... then they should voice their opinion by not voting and supporting the good doctor's candidacy. As a Traditional Christian, there are behaviors I try my best to abstain from and foremost among them is not to worship idols, in allegiance to the Biblical First Commandment or support anyone, especially in authority, like someone vying for the American Presidency, who might posit such a position. I, for one, understand Dr. Ben Carson's position of not wanting to vote for a Presidential candidate that is a Muslim, and, as I mentioned above, to show that I am not partial... I also did not vote for Governor Romney based on simply his Mormon Faith - but I also thank the Lord that He gave me the insight ahead of time not to also vote for that charlatan Christian, President Obama.

      Dr. Ben Carson is what America needs. This man has class in every direction. I am sorry to see that he is being attacked for stating something that makes perfect sense. The left is so outrageous and desperate to tear down Christianity that the most frightening thing for them is President Carson.

      Humanity takes precedence to you - but to me it does not... that is why I write opinion and published your response.

      Getting into this debate is diverting the attention of Americans from the real issues that confront them. Nobody is electing a Muslim President, diversity needs to be embraced and is here to stay, humanity takes precedence over religious beliefs, its all about spreading love not hate, so on and so forth.

      Wake up and do some real good for all God's creation - humanity and all other living beings.

      I fully agree with his position, not because I'm a Christian, but because I'm an American. Our Constitution will never take a backseat to Sharia or any other religious based laws, especially when the latter can so easily be manipulated.
