Throwing the First Stone: Roy Moore and The Nonexistent Political “Moral Superiority” of Liberals
A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection
3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” 6This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” – John 8: 3-8 (ESV)
Yesterday, as I was engaged in one of my favorite activities perusing Facebook Political Pages, I came across a meme which a Liberal “Troll” had posted, using an image of Jesus to attack Alabama Republican Senatorial Candidate, Judge Roy Moore.
I am not going to repeat the wording, However, it had something to do with Jesus speaking to a woman about rape.
The galling thing about it, was that not only was it a blasphemous and downright stupid meme, the useless individual who posted it did not even believe in Jesus Christ.
For the last couple of decades, Modern American Liberals (i.e., Democrats and those too ashamed to call themselves Liberal Democrats and who instead refer to themselves as “Independents”) have always approached the topic of politics as if they were innately possessed with some sort of “moral superiority” that had been gifted to them by the God of Abraham, whom they don’t even believe in.
Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Political Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being…until they need to reference Him for political leverage and justification.
Don’t believe me?
Remember what happened at the 2012 Democratic National Convention?
Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.
C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.
More information from the Associated Press:
Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
The move came after criticism from Republicans.
Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.
He called for a vote three times before ruling.
The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.
Liberals’ self-righteousness even allows them to blame natural disasters on a sitting Republican President by claiming that he does not have “a fear of the Lord”, even though nationally known Christian Author and Radio Host Dr, James Dobson spoke to Donald J. Trump before his election and found him to indeed be a Fellow Believer…a Christian American.
Funny. I did not realize that natural disasters were a Presidential Power given by the Constitution.
TheHill.com reports that
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump’s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the “wrath of God” or have any regard for the “existential consequences” of his environmental policies.
“I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility … this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is set to air on Sunday.
Brown, who studied to become a Jesuit priest prior to entering politics, has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration.
His latest comments come as the southern portion of California battles massive wildfires that in just a few days have damaged thousands of acres of property and destroyed hundreds of buildings.
Trump declared a state of emergency in California, which permits federal assistance to supplement the state and local response to the fires.
The order allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief efforts in the areas affected by the wildfires.
Northern California grappled with a series of wildfires earlier this year that took the lives of 44 people and resulted in billions of dollars of damage.
It tickled me to read that old hippie and former boyfriend of Linda Ronstadt (look her up, children), Governor Moonbeam himself, attempting to sound pious.
After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.
And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.
What is amazing to me, though, is how, even though Obama is no longer President, American Christianity is still constantly attacked on all fronts: militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.
From allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Moore to illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22
When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV
Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.
There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.
At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14
This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to do in our society.
If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, and now, after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.
It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.
Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way…as the past year since November 8th, 2016 has plainly showed.
For Liberal Democrats to attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against the actions and policies of President Trump and Republican Candidates for Congress, after turning their back on God for years, is a display of hypocrisy that would had made even the ancient Pharisees blush.
In fact, their desperation reminds me of a passage found in the New Testament,
22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ – Matthew 7:22-23
One must always be careful…because when you point a finger at someone, there are always four pointing back at you.
Just ask Al Franken.
