I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

On Friday, October 19, 2007, I began posting a thirteen part series on Barack Obama. The series was based upon an article published in World magazine on October 6, 2007. The following which is a paragraph from the article with my comments is from page 18 of that article.

“The Obama strategy is key to distinguishing himself from Clinton, who shares nearly identical policy positions on issues like health care, economics, and the war in Iraq. The goal is clear: Gain an edge by tapping into a segment of religious voters that Democrats have largely ignored in the past; insist that conservative Christians should compromise on principle for the sake of consensus. (Why??? He is not willing to compromise. He wants capitulation!!!—my addition) In his words, the ‘so-called leaders of the Christian right’ are ‘hijacking’ faith and ‘all too eager to exploit what divides us.’” (One of the major items that divide us is his insistence that it is proper to MURDER unborn babies!!!—my addition)

In this paragraph is the concept of compromise for consensus. Some, who want any Democrat defended, want to compromise in order to select a Presidential candidate who is perceived as being most likely to defeat any Democratic candidate. Political compromise under some circumstances is not only necessary but also desirable.

The real question is what issues are worthy of compromise. Should a Christian compromise his Biblically based moral values to achieve some important political goal?
Should he compromise in relation to the murder of unborn babies to decrease the number of unborn babies who are murdered? That is, should he capitulate on the demand to end the murder of unborn babies if some restricts are placed on the practice? Should he capitulate over civil unions for homosexuals if it means that homosexuals will not be allowed to marry? (Aren’t they basically the same thing?) Should he support a candidate who supports these issues if it means that the Democratic candidate will be defeated in November?

The only Biblical answer I can come up with is—NEVER!!! Do you think GOD makes compromises with EVIL??? Either murdering unborn babies is EVIL or it is not. Either homosexual behavior is SINFUL or it is not. Christians, if they are to be obedient to their SAVIOR, have only one option—to FIGHT against EVIL in what ever form it takes.
No one can unrepentantly compromise with EVIL and expect to stand before GOD uncondemned. We have no choice as a Christian. We can NOT capitulate to EVIL.

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” II Corinthians 11: 13-15 (NIV)

A snake is a snake is a snake. Evil is evil is evil. Sin is sin is sin. Satan is Satan is Satan. CHRIST is CHRIST is CHRIST. GOD is GOD is GOD. The HOLY SPIRIT is the HOLY SPIRIT is the HOLY SPIRIT.

“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 15: 57 (NIV)

“As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” Galatians 1: 9 (NIV)

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5: 11 (NIV)

“Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.” I Thessalonians 5: 21-22 (NIV)

“They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient
and unfit for doing anything good.” Titus 1: 16 (NIV)

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)
