Let the reader take heed." -- Tedd Mathis
Absolutely ridiculous. A vote makes no claim that Christ is in harmony with Belial or makes no claim to every single part of a platform as good or evil. Neither party cares one bit about the cause of Jesus Christ. Think about the danger of what Mathis is proposing here. Not that we are misinformed or even wrong somehow for casting a vote but rather that we have sinned! The inferred righteousness upon the party that gave us Roe, Gingrich, Livingston, Hastert and Romney is beyond stupid intellectually and equally unbiblical. When we stand before Christ we will have enough to answer for regarding our own lives, let alone what other people did. That would mean that everyone who voted for George Bush are guilty of the million dead in Iraq. The GOP platform expressly speaks to tax and service provision to the needy that has impoverished a generation. Now you are guilty for those sins because you voted? This is bad and dangerous theology. No one party has any corner on righteousness. All have turned away.
This is what NAR dominionism does to you though. It blinds you from the obvious fact that you have become a shill for a political party that is just as unsaved as the one you hate. Please, before I get all the whataboutism remarks, I do not play that game either. This is not an advertisement for either party. Both are evil. Both are of this world and we are not. I can look at both platforms and find the majority of what is proposed is against God or at least the resulting behavior is. This is not about telling you who to vote for. It is fine if you come to the same conclusions as Pastor Mathis about only voting for one issue or one party. The issue is in pretending your decision somehow is more righteous than any one else's. The issue is in minimizing sin to the point of absurdity. That because there is a little "D" next to someone's name, you must vote for the other guy. Doesn't matter if he a child molester or a Mormon, he is now the righteous choice of God. Do you think that serves the cause of the Gospel? Is that for the Lord's sake? No, it is most certainly not.
