Vote CLUMP or We’re all DOOMED!

Fall. Autumn. Harvest. It’s one of my favorite times of year. That’s why I’m just thrilled to pieces over all this Election Hooptie-Doo, and that segment of Western humanity wasting away billions of dollars and billions of hours on the election of another new politician who – surprise, surprise – once again promises to solve all our ills. Wow! Meanwhile, the King of all Creation orchestrates the beautiful sunsets and the awesome tapestry of colorful trees that this season brings, all while holding the entire World and each living soul in the palm of His mighty hand. Kind of makes you think, doesn’t it?

But yeah, I get it. I’m not new to this whole predictable mess of media hysterics and silly political theater. I mean, you’ve probably heard that saying of “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”? Well, it’s the same with the election business. I’ve been fooled once (or even twice) into thinking that somehow the election of certain key figures would save the world and avert some horrific catastrophe. But as a Christian, I’ve slowly come to see it all in a different light. One which places far greater emphasis on Christ and His Kingdom, and one which places far less – so very much less – on Humanist Institutions and their laughable attempts to rule in place of God.

Do I believe that if a certain political figure isn’t elected, we’ll end up doomed? Ha! Not at all. Sure, at one time I used to wake up on the morning after the election and sometimes get all depressed when this or that person or this or that issue was voted on in a way that I thought was unfavorable. It was kind of pathetic to be honest – but worse, it was a little self-serving. Because if I was entirely honest with myself back in those days, I just didn’t want a change that might require more work from me as a Christian. You know, because sometimes it just isn’t easy (or popular) to take a stand for the Lord’s Truth, and a lot of Christians (myself included) would rather have it easy. But does this make us better? Does it make the cause of Christ flourish? Hard to say. Although, I will say this: after years of having it pretty easy, it seems like the condition of Western Christians in today’s world isn’t so great – what with quite a large degree of apathy and ineptitude. But am I worried? Nope. God knows how to wake His people up. That’s why in the end, I’m confident that whoever supposedly “wins”, or whatever happens, God is King. He has a plan. Sure, it might not always be easy. But who knows…maybe He just wants to teach us to rely more on Him, and less on humanism. Whatever the case, I’m pretty excited for the future. Not a future of frail human ideas leading to a road of ruin – but a future based on the fantastic creativity and unmatched wisdom of God!

Just to be clear, I’m not talking about disengaging from society. Vote, or don’t vote in the election. But I think where it really counts is to be involved in your community. Be a great ambassador for Christ and His Kingdom to all those you know – like friends and family. Stand up for His Truth on a local level, where it really matters. If we all do this in our various communities, who knows what kind of BIG difference this could make! Far more so I think, than putting all your eggs in one basket over an election.

Note: CRUMP is the combination of the two big politicians involved in the 2016 American election. Of course the establishment would like you to believe they are as different as night and day. But are they really? And we do recognize there are other politicians involved too, like Gary Johnson (yawn), Darrell Castle (probably the most libertarian) and Tom Hoefling (who seems to advocate government force a tad too much). Have any other comments on the Christian vote, voting, elections, Christianity and politics or any other issue? Let us know!

Are Christians Being Used by Political Establishment?

martin luther, cartoon, illustration, progressive christianity, reformation, christian, christianity, Hebrews 4:12Government can sometimes be a tough subject in Christian circles. So much so it seems as if sometimes Christians are more prone to completely withdraw from the subject all together, rather than commit to whatever effort might be required in understanding history, God’s Law, and what the Bible has to say on government.

However, as a Christian who is interested in a variety of subjects (including art, government, culture and entertainment), I’m naturally always interested in hearing what others might have to say about Christians involved in these various areas of life. For example, in Episode 574 of the Tom Woods Show, host Tom Woods had a pretty interesting discussion with Paul Gottfried on Neo-Conservatives in the Republican Party. During the course of this fascinating interview, the subject of Christianity and Christian involvement in the Republican Party also came up. Following is a brief excerpt of what they had to say… (Note: For those who may not be familiar, Thomas E. Woods, Jr., is a senior fellow of the Mises Institute and host of the Tom Woods Show. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and his master’s, M.Phil., and Ph.D. from Columbia University. Woods has appeared on CNBC, MSNBC, FOX News Channel, FOX Business Network, C-SPAN, and Bloomberg Television, among other outlets, and has been a guest on hundreds of radio programs. Paul Gottfried, his guest for this particular episode, is a professor emeritus of humanities at Elizabethtown College and a Guggenheim recipient.)

Christian, cartoon, Romans 13, Ephesians 6, full armor of God, illustration, God and Government, Politics, Religious RightPaul Gottfried: I think a lot of it is simply the provincialism of the Neo-Cons. They despise the religious right, although they’re good on Israel or something like that. And they do provide the foot soldiers for the Republican Party. But I think they would be very happy if they could pull in Black and Hispanic votes, because that way they might be less dependent on these people in flyover country. I think they have utter contempt for the religious right. And the religious right have allowed themselves to be used so often, that I don’t blame the Neo-Cons at this point.

Tom Woods: They always huff and puff, and they threaten they’re going to walk out – it never ever happens. That’s one thing you can give credit to, is that the hard Left is not just satisfied with somebody giving a pretty speech and everybody in the audience knows the guy doesn’t believe it. They’ll sit in, they will disrupt things until they get what they want. Whereas you get out your copy of the Bible, and that satisfies these people. It’s almost like they deserve it. I mean, these are people who teach the total depravity of man, and they’re satisfied by a pretty speech. What is the problem here? It’s cognitive dissonance.

Paul Gottfried: There’s a total disconnect between their theology and their politics. Their politics assumes human perfectibility, that America is exceptional, that America is sinless and good and that we’re all living in the Kingdom of Heaven. Yet you’re right. Their religious view is based on total human depravity. I think they’re irreconcilable positions, but they’re probably not aware of the irreconcilability.
