I won't pull any punches. I'm challenging the church to embrace its call to be salt and light to the world once again, and to vote this November based on biblical values instead of groupthink party affiliation.
As I was studying 2 Kings 16, I realized there is an eerie similarity between that particular time in the kingdom of Judah and the present situation in North America and Western Europe.
To summarize: After Ahaz, the king of Judah, defeated the nations of Israel and Syria through the help of the king of Assyria, Tiglath Pileser, to whom he turned for military help (instead of to Jehovah), Ahaz visited Damascus and copied the altar erected to their god, and replaced the altar of the Lord with this foreign altar.
In the past 60 years we have witnessed the United States gradually shift from a Judeo-Christian worldview in science, law, economics, family, and psychology to a naturalistic, humanistic worldview that presupposes no transcendent values and exalts humankind as a god unto themselves!
Even the evangelical church has been negatively affected by this humanistic worldview resulting, in much compromise and cultural accommodation.
In this message (below) I also challenge fellow believers, including my African-American brothers and sisters, not to vote for pro-choice candidates (for example, President Obama) because these candidates are (ideologically) committed to their genocide!
Before you tune out at this point: Listen to the audio of this message as I point out the history of Planned Parenthood and how its founder, Margaret Sanger, was a white supremacist who started the first abortion clinic in Harlem because she desired to exterminate the black race!
Not only that, but she planned to utilize black ministers to use religious reasons to convince blacks that abortion was the right thing to do! Unfortunately, she has been largely successful because presently there are more black babies aborted than are born. This is a modern-day genocide!
Here are two quotes from Margaret Sanger:
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” (Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.)
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” (Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North)
I hope you will listen to this audio and pass the word along before Election Day this November. It’s not too late to bring our values into the voting booth!
