Politics and Faith
Our country is in an interesting place politically right now, and has been for quite some time. Some people are very extreme with their political views and convictions, listening to and repeating everything they hear on the news. Other people completely ignore what is happening politically and fail to stand up for their faith and what the Bible says. They don’t want to cause conflict or hurt someone’s feelings.
I want to make one thing very clear. Regardless of how vocal you are about your political stance; one thing should remain true for all followers of Christ. Your politics are to be influenced by the Bible. Let me say it again. Your politics are to be influenced by the Word of God. Many believers today have developed an entire worldview that is separate from the very Word of God. Your politics should be influenced by the Bible.
If your politics are not influenced by the Bible, there is something wrong. Because God has used Israel, we must stand with Israel. Any policy or plan that hurts Israel does not align with God's plan.
Many people have been seduced by the socialistic and Marxist direction that our country is taking. At this time, the left is pushing for bigger government and more socialized programs. We see a strong divergence from the Word of God and a great hatred toward Israel arising in our country.
This is not just some political agenda flowing today that will take its course. We need to embrace Scripture on this. If we don't align with Israel and stand by Israel, we are not standing with God. This is very important. If anyone wants to hurt or destroy Israel, they are aligned with the evil one. They are aligned with the dragon who wants to destroy Israel.
I stand on the Word of God. Politics have gotten so distorted. We need to stand with Israel.
It doesn’t matter if you lean ‘left ‘ or ‘right’ - that is irrelevant. Your ‘lean’ should be aligned always with God’s word!
Yes, we need to stand with Israel. But ‘socialized programs such as Social Security and Obamacare help people. Your comment about the left is offensive. Jesus helped people.
There is nothing offensive about Dr. Dodd's comments about the left. The policies of the left are offensive to God.
