Biblically Correct Views on Political Issues

Updated on March 26, 2008

God will bless America if our Nation makes Him our LORD

 

There are some Christians that do not want to get involved in politics in any way. They do not even vote. This is one extreme view. On the other extremity some Christians want to really get deeply involved in politics. They even become candidates for election. The important thing is that Christians should take a firm stand on biblically correct views on political issues.

As Christians we should not be too concerned or worried about the economy of America. If America is truly a "One Nation under God" this nation will be blessed.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD (Yahweh), and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance." (Psm. 33:12)

We should elect a president who will restore America to God. Then God will bless America and its economy.

The Lord Jesus Christ said, "Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." (Mt. 6:31-34)

Criteria for choosing a Presidential candidate

"And Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly. You have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you. For now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. But now your kingdom shall not continue. The LORD has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you." (1 Sam. 13:13-14)

We need to find and elect a presidential candidate who is a person after God's own heart, someone who keeps God's commandments. Let us consider the moral issues of abortion and same-sex marriage (homosexuality).

Abortion is murder of babies before birth. Pro-Choice means the mother has the right to choose abortion. Pro-Life position is against abortion. Life begins at conception. Please go to this web site: http://www.geocities.com/prebirth_ark/diaryunborn.html

Same Sex Marriage is disguised as Domestic Partnership. Homosexuality is a deadly sin and an abomination to God (Lev. 18:22; 20:13; Rom. 1:24-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-10).

By placing the presidential candidates against these issues we can disqualify and eliminate the ones that favor abortion and same-sex marriage.

Hillary Clinton said: "I am and always have been pro-choice, and that is not a right anyone should take for granted." (Source: New York Times, pg. A11 Jan 22, 2000). Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton announced to a small group of homosexual leaders this week she has changed her mind about same-sex marriage and now supports it - sort of -

Barack Obama said: "Abortions should be legally available in accordance with Roe v. Wade." (Source: 1998 IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test Jul 2, 1998) He supports granting civil unions for gay couples and opposed a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. In March 2007, Obama initially dodged questions about the morality of homosexuality. He later went on to say on national television that he did not believe homosexuals are immoral.

Creationism is Biblically Correct

 

Many Christian denominations mix the biblical creation narrative with scientific evidence by accepting evolution as the process God used to create life on Earth. But many conservative and evangelical Protestants adhere to a literal view of Genesis, rejecting the idea that human life evolved from lower primates over millions of years. And some fundamentalist Christians maintain the process did indeed take six literal days.

Mike Huckabee, when pressed about whether he believed in a literal interpretation of the timeline laid out in Genesis -- that God created the world in six days about 6,000 years ago, he said, "I don't know."

"Whether God did it in six days or whether he did it in six days that represented periods of time, he did it. And that's what's important."

Huckabee's elucidation of his views during the debate drew a follow-up response from Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who, when the topic came up in the first debate, had said he believed that God's creation may be through the process of evolution.

"I admire [Huckabee's] description, because I hold that view," said McCain, an Episcopalian who has attended a Baptist church for several years. "There's no doubt in my mind that the hand of God was in what we are today. And I do believe that we are unique, and [I] believe that God loves us."

What would Jesus do ?

During the Republican Presidential Debate in St. Petersburg, Florida on Wednesday November 28, 2007. Governor Mike Huckabee was asked this tricky question: "What would Jesus do? Would Jesus support the death penalty?"

Huckabee: "Jesus was too smart to ever run for public office, Anderson. That's what Jesus would do."

The audience applauded and also laughed at his witty and humorous response. The former governor from Arkansas, also a former Baptist preacher, then gave the biblically correct answer. Here is what he said:

"I believe there is a place for a death penalty. Some crimes are so heinous, so horrible that the only response that we, as a civilized nation, have for a most uncivil action is not only to try to deter that person from ever committing that crime again, but also as a warning to others that some crimes truly are beyond any other capacity for us to fix."

(Applause)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Biblical Support for the Death Penalty

The Lord Jesus Christ said to a disciple who cut off the ear of a servant of the high priest; "Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword." (Mt. 26:52) God is very clear about the death penalty. "Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man."(Gen. 9:6)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mike Huckabee continued:

Now, having said that, there are those who say, "How can you be pro-life and believe in the death penalty?"

Because there's a real difference between the process of adjudication, where a person is deemed guilty after a thorough judicial process and is put to death by all of us, as citizens, under a law, as opposed to an individual making a decision to terminate a life that has never been deemed guilty because the life never was given a chance to even exist.

Cooper: Governor?

Huckabee: That's the fundamental difference.

(Applause)

      Any intelligent person can look no further than the United States in answer to your question. This is a nation that has been blessed beyond measure, yet isn't it interesting how far down America has fallen once people decided to try and ban God from this nation. Perhaps reading your bible might help get your thinking straight. Just look at what the Jewish people went through when they disobeyed God, but he continued to restore fellowship with them and bless them when Godly men stood by Godly principles and obeyed God.

      Well, I would hate to be such a blasphemer, but what evidence is there that Christian nations are any better off than non-Christian nations?

      If they are, it's because they went and converted people, killing because they didn't believe. Any economically feasible trading partner Christian Europe had was either forced to convert, or destroyed and left in ruin as a third world country. God isn't the one who has decided fates of nations. Ignorant Christians have.

      I agree with you on the death penalty. We should use it whenever the Bible tells us to use it. For solidly Biblical teaching on that subject, with no alterations to make it more politically correct for modern liberals, see http://www.godhatesrapevictims.com/
