Christian values

Understanding the word “conservative”


It is defined as this from the “Cambridge Dictionaries Online”-
“tending to emphasize the importance of preserving traditional cultural and religious values, and to oppose change, esp. sudden change”
Traditional – existing in or as part of a tradition; long-established. synonyms: long-established, customary, time-honored, established, classic, accustomed, standard, regular, normal, conventional, usual, orthodox, habitual, set, fixed, routine, ritual;
Religious values – Religious values are ethical principles founded in religious traditions, texts and beliefs. In contrast to personal values, religious-based values are based on scriptures and a religion’s established norms.
This is the core definition of what a “conservative” is and should be. However in two recent occasions I heard things that do not follow this definition.
The first was during a symposium on marriage during the 2016 CPAC conference. One of the people there supported homosexual marriage and yet called himself conservative.
The second was from a broadcast from Breitbart News on SiriusXM, in which the host of the weekday morning broadcast stated that religion had no place in conservativism.
This is counter to the definition of “preserving traditional cultural and religious values” so in my eyes this person at CPAC and host of Breitbart Mr. Stephen K. Bannon should not call themselves “conservative” but “progressives.”
Progressivism is a broad philosophy based on the Idea of Progress, which asserts that advancement in science, technology, economic development, and social organization are vital to improve the human condition.
Simply translated a progressive believes that humanity does it all and there is no need to include God into the equation and those that adhere to the belief in a God are out of touch with reality. This is totally counter to what a conservative is, but this is the mind set of those in today’s society since God has been removed from schools for fifty years now.
They have fallen for these misguided beliefs and feel that the existence of God is a misnomer due to all the corruption and ugliness within society. What they do not realize is that this corruption, even though present in the past has grown like a cancer throughout society today due to the mere fact that GOD WAS REMOVED.
Mark 7:20 – And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
When God is removed from the picture and they are not shown that God must be the center of their lives and they must accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. The result is corruption and ugliness for that is all that humankind is capable of causing. Look to the French Revolution, which led to Napoleon; look at Socialism which turned into Communism which led to millions dying in Siberian Gulags; look at Nazism which led to the Holocaust. These are examples of where God was removed from the equation.
So to be a true conservative you must maintain that there is a God and that the teachings within the Bible are to be followed.
That being said at this time many that call themselves “conservative” are following a candidate for president that totally opposes all the true “conservative values.” That person is Donald Trump. In fact if you listen to him, other than the fact that he has no true plans and how to accomplish ANY of what he states he will do, he actually talks like a “progressive.” This means he is opposed to God, this was proven when he stated his favorite verse in the Bible is “an eye for an eye,” the last verse any true Christian would ever support. Yet millions that say they are “Christian” support him. What does this say about these people? The answer to that is not one they wish to hear and it is not good.

The Christian Crossroads called the Vote


Those that call themselves Christian are at a crossroads. For too long they have set by quietly and allowed too much to happen that is now destroying the very society that once flourished within the borders of the United States.
The most powerful tool at their disposal is the ballot box, yet they do not bother to vote.
In the last major election, many that call themselves Christian refused to vote for the Republican candidate for president due to that fact that he is Mormon.
As a result, the current president was re-elected and the United States has stated its spiral into quickly become a third world country. This is the fault of those that refused to support a Mormon and instead did not vote or voted for the man now in office.
This is not how those that call themselves Christian should act. They should vote their values even if a person that is running does not follow theirs.
Those that call themselves Christian should know what their values are. Not only are they listed as the Ten Commandments but also we are supposedly taught to be like Christ.
Jesus taught many things. It took four book from four different apostles to gather the most of the view of how we should live and act as Christians. Yet many that call themselves Christian do not live their life’s like they should.
Many chose to live for themselves and think only of their own reward and glory upon this earth. This is totally opposite what Christ said is correct and righteous to the Christian faith and believes. Many seek out for the rewards offered in this temporal life we now live in. What they should be seeking is their reward beyond this life.
Right this moment someone who calls themselves Christian just said there is not reward beyond this life.
Then I say to those that just said that; then you are simply acting and not truly Christian.
Which explains why you have not voted for Biblical values, as you should, but for your own selfish desires and wants.
Christians are called to be humble, to place all others before themselves, especially if they seek to be a leader.
Christian values do not support those that wish to commit sin. So how in good conscience support those that wish to legalize anything that is called a sin within the Bible. You should not be able too if you vote your faith.
Yet time and again that is what happens and even more and more each year.
As a result, this nation is on decline, because those in power to not respect not only Christian values, but God Himself. Repeatedly we hear more and more of those wishing to replace Christian values with so-called values that actually discriminate against those that are Christian. Houston, TX is the most visible at this time, but many others are out there.
First and foremost, go vote. Then when you vote, vote for God.

President Obama in an interview with Al Sharpton – “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and I tell them, I said, ‘You know what, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure our voters turn out.’ ” (The man who has lied to America has ordered the Democrats running for office to lie.)
