"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. -- Matthew 25: 31-32 (ESV)

Thanks to the growing infection of the New Apostolic Reformation within the body of Christ the lines are getting blurrier about politics and Christianity. Because one of the seven mountains of culture the NAR adherents falsely teach must be conquered is government the church has become overly enamored with the political sphere. That infatuation is at its heart corrupt because politics is corrupt. I like to use the Titanic analogy. The ship has hit the iceberg already, Jesus is the lifeboat and politics is the argument over who is best suited to drive the ship into the icy depths. Where do we find the majority of Christians in this country? Are they directing people to the lifeboats or arguing for their captain? Beloved, and hear me very plainly here. Neither party cares about the cause of Jesus Christ. The things of God are utter foolishness to those who are perishing, regardless of political party. Many however believe they have figured out the recipe to the secret sauce. They have squarely aligned themselves with one party, even if they must resort to the lesser of two evils argument. The problem with that is they quickly lose sight of the fact that they still have chosen evil. One such person I came across recently was Dr. Mark Creech, columnist for the Christian Post (article linked above). He recently wrote about a six-term North Carolina Democrat legislator, Rep. Bill Brisson of Bladen County, announcing he was changing his voter registration to Republican. He changed because he felt that the party had become too liberal for him. Brisson is a secular politician who has every right to make that assessment. Dr. Creech however is supposed to be a reverend that is representing Christ. So let us reason together beloved and see the NAR mindset at work.

"I don't claim to speak for Rep. Brisson, but I suspect, knowing his love for the Lord and his unflinching commitment to a righteous culture, it became increasingly difficult to stay in a political Party that supports policies far removed from Christian teachings. In fact, I personally believe a lot of Christians who are in the Democrat Party should consider changing their registration." -- Dr. Mark Creech

Herein is the crux of the problem within Christo-politics. There is no such thing as "righteous culture." The entire term is biblically absurd. Romans 3 teaches us that none are righteous. None seek after God. The NAR however believes in a Christian utopia set up within the United States. A fantasy land where if only the unsaved goats would behave better then God might somehow spare America the judgment that all nations must face according to our key verses today. The NAR teaches this nonsense because they like the sin and excess they enjoy in Sodom right now. They do not want their apple cart upset. They like selling doves in the temple for four times their worth to foreigners. When Creech says he thinks Christians who are Democrats should consider changing their registration he is setting up the fallacy of a righteous party. None are righteous. Just take a look at Alabama right now! Is there anything righteous about a senate candidate who has five women accusing him of sexually predatory behaviors when they were underage? What has been the Christian response? One Christian office holder tried to say that because Mary was a teenager it was ok. Others have flat out said that even if the allegations were true they would still vote for Roy Moore. Think about how chilling that statement is. That as a Christian it is more important to have a Republican in office then worry about whether he is a pedophile. Where is our faith? Where are our morals? You might scream Bill Clinton at this point and you would be absolutely right! That is the entire point! None are righteous. Creech continues:

'"Why?" you ask. "Can't I be a Christian and a Democrat too?" The question is somewhat like the one an elderly parishioner of mine asked me many years ago when I paid her a pastoral call. She said, "Pastor, can I still dip my snuff and go to heaven?" I replied, "You most certainly can, but you'll have to go to hell to spit." My attempt at humor wasn't meant to say she would go to hell if she kept dipping. It was only a light-hearted way of trying to convey that her use of tobacco wasn't consistent with a better Christian walk.' -- Dr. Mark Creech

So being affiliated with the Democratic Party is now akin to being addicted to tobacco? The worst part here however is that last line. According to Creech being Republican is more consistent with a better Christian walk. Wow. What staggering arrogance. He now lists six areas that show the gap between the two parties and holding a "Christian worldview", which he is quoting from Wayne Grudem, in Politics According to the Bible.

'1. Liberal versus conservative views of government. Democrats represent a group who favor more government control of individual lives and government-enforced equality of income. Republicans typically believe in smaller government and allowing people to keep the fruits of their labor, rather than confiscating their wealth and giving it to people the government believes should have it.
