The Political Date Rape of Christianity

Spiking the WineBecause offering an alternative to the failed two-party system we see utterly destroying our constitutional republic is too deep an issue for blogging to handle alone, I have thus far resisted the near-necessity of encouraging Christians to abandon this system.  But now that my book (UNGOD: Unmasking the Dark Image of Hell) is available and outlines for us the Divine blueprint for appropriate human government, I shall hold off no longer.

Let’s begin with the Democrat Party.  Above all, a Christian’s highest allegiance should be to the Word of God, yet millions of professing Christians cast their votes in favor of the Democrat Party despite this progressive, secular, totalitarian, faith-despising party’s absolute hatred for the Scriptures.  How is that so many who claim to love God can routinely cast their votes in favor of a party and its slew of sponsored legislation that clearly contradict God’s stated views on the sanctity of human life in the womb (Exodus 21:22-25; Luke 1:39-45), the sanctity of monogamous heterosexual marriage (Leviticus 18:22; Malachi 2:15; Romans 1:26,27), the danger of multiculturalism (Exodus 20:3), the necessity of national separation and sovereignty (Genesis 10-11; Numbers 34:1-12), and the necessity of an armed citizenry (1 Samuel 14:19-22; Luke 22:36), to name but a few?  The answer is simple: errant compassion.

Decades ago, the secular progressives (the Marxists and their cousins) realized they needed to co-opt the Christian community in order to remake America in their Hellish image.  So they courted Christians and our churches, and while we weren’t paying attention they slipped the mickey of compassionate government into our communion wine.  We’ve been drunk on it ever since, and they’ve been having their way with us because of it, using us to craft Compassionate Governmentand sustain a fiendish, Orwellian-style government that is about to overwhelm and crush us and all things noble.

The Bible makes clear that compassion and human government are two ideas that should not cross paths.  Because of the existence of the sinful nature, God has instituted and given to government a role upon planet Earth, and that role is always stern – never compassionate (which is just one reason why government is designed to be small).  Compassion is a role expected of people, not government, and any charity done through government is therefore illegitimate and dangerous.  The forced redistribution of wealth under the guise of compassionate government openly violates the Tenth Commandment (you shall not covet) and the Eighth Commandment (you shall not steal).  How sad that we should need reminding that governments are meant to uphold the Commandments, not pilfer them.

The Good Samaritan was not a government agent or agency; he was a concerned human being.  Religion (not government) that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after widows and orphans in their distress… (James 1:27a NIV).  Yes, Jesus is compassionate, and so should His followers be.  But He is also the Lawgiver, and we don’t have the right to violate His Law in the name of compassionate government.  Any people who rely on government to accomplish charity are a people with no soul.

Adam-RepublicanNow to the Republican Party.  Whereas the Democrat Party has been guilty of date raping Christianity, the Republican Party has merely descended to the point where they treat Christianity like a prostitute: every two to four years they come our way, pay for the use of our services and, once elected, go back to their now-secular mistress.  Though their noble beginnings were founded by us, today they despise us, are embarrassed by us, and have a vision for government that runs nearly as counter to Scripture as that of the Democrats.  They (and their rising stars) will take us to the same destination as the Democrats, only more slowly.  It’s time to be done with them.

The truth of the matter is that both the Democrats and Republicans rely heavily upon professing Christians in order for their parties to exist and hold power.  What I am proposing is that all Christians withdraw their support from both of these destructive political parties and form a truly Biblical political party built upon a platform of Biblical government (which is basically a return to the purity of the Constitution).  There are so many millions of us that we could politically own the nation within two to three election cycles if this were done well and properly.

Top 10So what would a Biblical government look like?  It would be stern in nature, small in scope, strong on sovereignty and separation, monolingual and monocultural.  Its people would be tremendously free, lightly governed and highly responsible for their lives, their families and their actions.  It would be devoid of compassion and charity, defined roughly by the following ten basic duties of government:

  1. Pass a simple system of laws that honor and protect humanity’s most precious asset – the image of God in us (Genesis 9:6b; Exodus 20:2) – and enforce that system of laws (Genesis 9:5,6).  It should:
    • Ensure capital punishment for murderers (Genesis 9:6), other serious offenders (Leviticus 20) and repeat offenders (Deuteronomy 21:18-21)
    • Fine and/or physically punish minor offenders, after which they are to be set free (Leviticus 6:4,5; Deuteronomy 25:2,3).  There would essentially be no prison system
  2. Maintain an open, fair and free justice system (Exodus 18:21,22; Deuteronomy 19:15)
  3. Quarantine those with dangerous, infectious diseases (Leviticus 13)
  4. Ensure the private ownership of land (Numbers 26:1 – 27:11; Joshua 13-21)
  5. Maintain secure borders against the rest of the world (Joshua 13-19; 2 Samuel 8:6,14)
  6. Maintain a national language (Genesis 11:7-9; 2 Kings 18:26) and culture (Exodus 20:3)
  7. Avenge and protect the blood of its people upon the world stage (1 Samuel 15:2,3)
  8. Maintain its roadways that its people may move about freely (Deuteronomy 19:3)
  9. Mint the coin of the realm (Exodus 30:13)
  10. Tax all of its people an equal percentage of their income to maintain these services (Leviticus 27:30)

All else would be left to the realms of personal freedom and responsibility.

American Christians have sinned by aiding and abetting in the creation and sustenance of a governmental system truly odious to God, and if America falls into serfdom to that system there is a Dark Age sniffing around the corner.  Please consider buying a copy of UNGOD (the proceeds go to charity) and joining the noble cause of reclaiming and restoring to America (and beyond!) the idea of legitimate and appropriate government.

  1. Whoa! Barry you are on a roll now. Any ideas on logistics? Where to start organizing?

    Democrats and republicans all work for the ultra rich bankers. Each “party” just placates to a different group of voters. Corporations are now government as in every large empire and at the end of the empire the population of poor is so swollen that the corporations use their power to control the population. Only each attempt is followed by a mighty saving hand of God. The current law of economics thwarts the law of God. Every empire used a law of economics to create unjust scales and balances which God detests. As long as we can not have access to our natural resources directly those thieves who claim superiority will continue to have the hand of oppression on the multitudes.

  3. How do you feel about the Constitutional Party? It seems like they are closer to the goal than the two leading parties are, though I can see some areas where they may not match up with the list you presented.
