Pastor John MacArthur #fundie #wingnut #homophobia #transphobia christianheadlines.com

Pastor and author John MacArthur says in a new interview that President Trump phoned him this summer to offer support and that MacArthur told him “any real true believer is going to be on your side” in November.

MacArthur’s congregation, Grace Community Church in Los Angeles County, Calif., has defied state and county health restrictions that prohibit indoor worship services. He made the comments in an interview with Ryan Helfenbein of Liberty University’s Falkirk Center. The Democratic Party platform, MacArthur asserted, is antithetical to Scripture.

“He called me after the Sunday morning service, and he was very gracious and said, ‘I just want to thank you for taking a stand. Church is essential, and I'm glad you're doing what you're doing.’ And then we talked a little bit about why, from certainly a biblical standpoint, Christians could not vote Democratic,” MacArthur said. “Because there’s no way that a Christian can affirm the slaughter of babies, homosexual activity, homosexual marriage, or any kind of gross immorality – no way we could stand behind a candidate who was affirming transgender behavior, which of course is really the reprobate mind of Romans 1.


“I'm not at all surprised that you have an assault on the conscience by the Democratic Party, where homosexuality, immorality at any kind of level, transgenderism is fine, acceptable behavior and we ought to make laws to normalize it,” MacArthur said. “I’m not at all surprised that the family is destroyed through divorce and abortion, which is the destruction of the very reason for marriage. I’m not surprised that they're screaming to defund the police, because that's the next restraint to go. And I was just waiting for when they were going to hit the church.”

For decades, PC culture has dominated many of America’s college campuses, a fact highlighted in Allan Bloom’s ground-breaking 1987 book “The Closing of the American Mind.” PC culture tries to shame and silence those of us with traditional beliefs as though we’re bigots or rubes.

I know about PC culture first hand, having graduated from Yale University in the 1980s. Recent events at my alma mater and on other campuses reveal that this PC monster is starting to eat its own, and the progressives, I’m happy to say, are finally getting concerned.

We’ve talked about the whole idea of “The Coddling of the American Mind,” of universities dealing with emotionally fragile young people as if they were children. As part of PC culture, a surprising number of schools, including Yale, now annually give advice to students on what kind of Halloween attire is appropriate, to avoid offending anyone.

Well, a couple of professors had the temerity to question whether such coddling is appropriate in a university setting. One wrote in an e-mail to students, “Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious... a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive?”

The professor continued: “if you don’t like a costume someone is wearing, look away, or tell them you are offended. Talk to each other.”

This advice was too much for one Yalie, who launched a profanity-laced tirade at a professor and demanded more coddling: “It is not about creating an intellectual space,” she screamed. “It is not! Do you understand that? It is about creating a home here!”

Then, of course, there are the goings-on at the University of Missouri, where anti-racism protesters blocked and shoved a student photographer who tried to cover their demonstration.

The students chanted, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, journalists have got to go.” Even a Missouri communications professor supporting the rally joined the mob and was caught on film saying, “Help me get this reporter out of here. I need some muscle.”

Writing in the New Yorker magazine, Jonathan Chait, who is no conservative, notes, “The upsurge of political correctness is not just greasy-kid stuff, and it’s not just a bunch of weird, unfortunate events that somehow keep happening over and over. It’s the expression of a political culture with consistent norms, and philosophical premises that happen to be incompatible with liberalism.”

It’s a culture that brooks no opposition and will use force when it can. Chait says it’s time for progressives to get serious about the PC monster and stand up for pluralism—before it’s too late.

So while we can celebrate the fact that the secular media are finally becoming indignant over the political correctness monster that they themselves in many cases have fed and pampered for lo these many years, maybe we should pause and ask this question: What is our role? How should followers of Christ respond?

It’s easy to laugh at the contradictions and confusions of political correctness, to fold our arms and watch the chickens come home to roost. But perhaps we ought rather to engage. Yes, we’ll take our lumps when we do. But this is no time for “I told you so’s”. It’s time to set an example of civility--by more consistently speaking the truth in love, whether the issue is race, gender, human sexuality, religion, or poverty.

As our old friend Chuck Colson once said, “… in a democracy, civility is not an option, it’s a precondition that makes our system possible . . . Without civility, political discourse becomes hostile and polarized. In the resulting chaos we become vulnerable to tyranny.”

It’s good that political correctness on campus is being exposed for what it is: tyranny. To begin putting the PC monster back in its cage, a renewed commitment to civil discourse is in order. Let’s lead the way.

We are now beginning to see the Imploding of our culture. It started with just a few rare incidents that were quickly swept under the rug. Now it is involving Major College Campuses involving tens of thousands of our future leaders. Before long America will look like a Communist country. You will be afraid to say ANYTHING because your neighbor is watching you and will turn you into the authorities who will take away your home, your job, and maybe even your family members, (although they may leave the family members because we all know that in many of today's marriages, the "Til Death do you part" phrase actually means till death OR til times get too rough!)

Unless we, The People, start getting tired of this real quick and start doing something about it, we are heading down a dark slippery path real fast, and that path ends in quicksand!!!!

It is sad when people try and insult others for supposedly not being in the 21st century for not sharing their views. How juvenile! PP may provide many health services it their primary one is to kill babies. It is ironic that people have issues with religious people pushing beliefs in to government policies but have no issues with their secular or anti religious views on everyone through government policies. All views should have a voice in politics not just the non religious.Jason James sure has no problem shoving his anti God views on others. You forget Mr. James that it also says the free exercise there of.(exercise of religion) which lately you anti God/bible secular folks seem to like infringing on. if we are going to make assumptions, you like to call all people who follow God/bible as thumping and shoving our views on you yet that is what you are doing with your secular views. Thanks for proving my point that you are no different than most atheists. If you opened your bible you would also know that God commanded us to share the gospel to everyone. If we do not share our faith and keep it to ourselves we are disobeying God. How will others hear about the Lord and his love for us and his wanting us to repent and turn our lives over to him (John 3:16-21; Matthew 28:18-20)

The left is always stealing Christianity's symbols, concepts, and language and reinventing them under their own banner--for example, the rainbow, stolen by the homosexuals.

Case in point: The phrase "politically correct." Yes, ironically, it too was stolen from us.

The alleged politically correct are neither biblically nor politically correct. One cannot be truly politically correct without being biblically correct. Politics cannot be severed from religion anymore than morality can be severed from legislation. One's political persuasion is a reflection of his morality (or, more often than not, his immorality) and one's morals determines his religion. Thus, applied politics is applied religion and applied religion is applied politics.

It is therefore imperative that we get our religion correct that we might get our politics correct

Henry Wilson #fundie christianheadlines.com

Have yet to read or hear of a comment from any LGBT advocate which made a lick of sense. Of course..... they are advocating for satanic immorality. That is why everything they say is not only ridiculous but also personally offensive and insulting to anyone with an ounce of morality in their soul.

Henry Wilson #fundie christianheadlines.com

In Britain, Ireland, Canada. etc it is now illegal and a hate crime for Christian preachers to preach that homosexuality is a sin. Our time is coming in this nation if we do not stop this nonsense at the border. And even worse it will happen that to say killing babies in the womb and harvesting their body parts for subsequent sale is sinful, will also be a hate crime. Get ready. The internment camps are coming. Sooner than you may think.

The USA and other western countries have become totally satan possessed, and are far from the words of Jesus, and the Bible...under the guise of "freedom" they allow every imagineable degration to the human body, physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually...yet millionaire preachers from the USA in particular, run all over the planet trying to bring "christianity" to other people...they should take the sliver out of their own eyes and start converting the people in their own countries first...

James Smith #fundie christianheadlines.com

In the sense we have not established Christianity (or any other religion for that matter) as the official religion in our legal system, no we are not. Until the Supreme Court began to remove God from the public square beginning in the 1940s, however, in terms of values, sentiments, beliefs and adherence to a certain way of life...we most certainly were. Not any more, however. Not since the godless Radical Left took control of the government, media, education, arts & entertainment, and almost all other public institutions.

America was founded on Christian principles and we were a Christian nation as God established his kingdom on earth. But as we have aged it was not gracefully as the lack of faithfulness yielded to secularity attitudes and carnality in our instead of of the Bible....our decisions which further caused our fall from grace shows we have yielded to lower elements of man... look at all the decisions from taking prayer out of school to the 10 commandments to even gay marriage and you can social problems increase as we stray further from our true identity... I understand why Jesus wept over his nation as I too weep over mine. I come from a military family and know the influence of God in our patriotism and seeing the decay of our morality by rejecting the truths that our forefathers laid down thru Gods Word I actually fear for the next generations truly we have entered the last days... Please father God bless America... Am I still allowed to say that?

Robert Lee Ellis #fundie christianheadlines.com

Proverbs 29:2 should be considered when making a statement that being a Christian isn't the best choice. This nation was founded on the God of the Bible. Read Christopher Columbus notes! He said it wasn't compass that guided his vessel, but the hand of God! We are reaping the effects of a generation of illiterate people in history and Bible.

"O Yahweh, ... in wrath remember mercy." (Habakkuk 3:2)

Perhaps now Christians will wake up to the fact that we've been had and cease promoting the document responsible for this decision: The biblically seditious Constitution.

Consider the following sampling of reasons the Constitution stands as the genesis for today's horrific decision:

1) Unlike their 17th-century Christian Colonial predecessors, the 18th-century founders failed to expressly establish government and society upon Yahweh's unchanging morality as reflected in His commandments, statutes, and judgments, including those regarding the perversion of homosexuality.

2) Article 3's usurpation of the biblical magistrate appellate system for the Constitution's unbiblical litigant appellate system without which this issue would have never been before the Supreme Court to decide, in the first place.

3) Article 6's Christian test ban by which biblical qualifications were all but eliminated and without which it was inevitable that America would end up with today's Supreme Court Justices who are responsible for today's decision.

For more, see online Chapter 3 "The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YAHWEH" of "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt3.html.

Then Chapter 5 "Article 3: Judicial Usurpation."

Then Chapter 9 "Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land."

Now the persecution of Christians will escalate, to help them "overcome" their faith as Obama stated yesterday. Won't cut some flowers, won't take photos, won't allow your church sanctuary for weddings...no matter to the new orthodoxy. You will bend your knee to the messianic state. No matter that the right to decide such issues at the local level, no matter that we once had a Tenth Amendment, five people, elected by no one, dictate to local citizens what they must do. The forcing of beliefs is from the other side, not from Christians.

This decision on homosexual marriage by our Nation and its so called leaders is an abomination to God. That is what He calls it in His Holy Word. I will follow the only Commander and Chief I have, Jesus. This perverted court has just put the final nail in America's coffin. God must act as He has done with deadly force in the past against this Sodom and Gomorrah government and its Godless and unconstitutional acts. They have giving our Lord and Savior no choice.
"A county not ruled by God's law will be ruled by a tyrant." William Penn. Our weapons will be useless against what is about to come upon us and it happened because the moral people and our sons and daughters in the military of this Nation have not stood their ground and said, "Enough is enough.” “You are destroying our Constitution.” “We will not bow down to evil and take this any longer."
I for one absolutely will not comply with this ruling no matter what the cost. If at least half the people in America take that stand maybe we can be saved from His wrath. My earthly father risked his life to fight for our freedom in WWII. I fought for it in my classrooms and during my time in law enforcement. Now we are not free by this judgment to say, “NO!!”. We are no longer free and children will suffer the most. For the first time in history we must have our military and law enforcement step up and stop this decay and side with the Founding Fathers and the Bible based Constitution they signed in the beginning. Our military and law enforcement swear by oath to, “Protect the Constitution.” It was not protected today. The rights and freedoms of Godly Americans who follow God’s laws have been ripped from our lives this tragic day. DO SOMETHING!!!!
