VP Pence Urges Evangelicals To Act

With a voice of urgency, Vice President Pence is giving a rally cry to Christians and conservatives---especially biblical evangelicals.

Other Christian leaders are joining him saying everything is on the line---"God help us if we fail to fulfill our moral responsibility."

I agree, and join them in the most important call to action in our lifetime.

VP Pence calls for action.

Last weekend at a gathering of evangelicals---values voters---Vice President Pence told the audience, "The other side is mobilized and some say they're motivated as never before. But I say we must match---in fact I say surpass---the American left and their enthusiasm. And if we do, we will win."

He was, of course, talking about the upcoming mid-term election.

He's right. The clock is ticking toward the November 6 midterm elections. But there's more than mere enthusiasm that is driving the Left.

Some are predicting a so-called "Blue Wave", in great part due to the Left's hatred of President Trump and his pro-life, pro-religious freedom and pro-capitalist policies.

Some polls support that prediction at this point.

It doesn't matter to these folks that consumer confidence was reported yesterday to be at an 18-year high. Nor does it matter that the Conference Board Index is at 134.7---only 10 points below the all-time high.

Remember Bill Clinton's slogan, "It's about the economy, stupid?" Well, it isn't.

It isn't even about what's best for the country in the mind of the motivated Left. It's a spiritual contest between good and evil---biblical values vs. secular humanist ideology.

The Left with their humanism and secularist worldview vs. conservative Judeo-Christian values upon which this nation, unlike any other, was founded---and has prospered.

It's not about freedom. It's about control and moral tyranny. It's about redefining or destroying the institutions that God has created---marriage, the sanctity of life, human sexuality, religious freedom---while imposing a secular right and wrong that's relative, and based on nothing more than how one "feels" at any given time.

For several generations we have seen public education teach our children relativism, evolving "truth" and "fluid beliefs"---no absolutes---all based on how one personally feels.

Example: Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono (Hawaii)

Sunday, Sen Hirono was on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper.

Responding to an editorial in the Wall Street Journal that suggested that this chaos surrounding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is damaging our U.S. justice system, because allegations are believed because a woman made them---not whether they are actually true.

In her rambling response, Hirono said: "It is really important, not only for these survivors to be heard, but if their stories are as credible as Dr. Fords's story is, they need to be believed."

How does she know Ford's story is true and credible? There are no witnesses that support her story. The people she named as witnesses say they don't even know what she's talking about---it never happened.

Then Hirono explained how she gets to the "Truth" about the matter.

She told Tapper it's about Kavanaugh's "ideological agenda."

Because Kavanaugh's beliefs do not support her beliefs about abortion---anyone who testifies against him must be believed. They're credible because they believe the right things---in this case about abortion.

She does not stand alone in this belief. This is representative of secular humanistic beliefs.

James Dobson is shouting the rooftop.

He says, "God help us if you and I fail to fulfill our moral responsibility."

He says this upcoming midterm election is far more significant than any in our lifetime---probably in the history of our nation.

"Everything is on the line," he says---"and a wholly new interpretation of the Constitution looms before us. Socialism would replace freedom and free enterprise if Christians don't participate" in the upcoming election.

Powerful social movements and passions are blowing in the wind and most of them have dangerous implications for the institution of the family, religious liberty, our children and unborn babies---and the country at large.

The outcome of many local elections will come down to who decides to vote.

If we sit this election out, because we're sick and tired of the chaos, or, God forbid, someone told us "Christians shouldn't be involved in politics"---God help us. We bear responsibility for the consequences.

And elections do have consequences.

Encourage people in your church to vote. Ask your pastor to mention it from the pulpit. Encourage people in your family, your community and your social contacts to vote.

Your responsibility is to know the issues. Be Informed.

Dobson notes that:
"We are plagued by hatred and strife," pointing to the words of Abraham Lincoln on the occasion of his second Inaugural address on March 2, 1864. The war had 18 months to go, before the North would achieve victory.

Lincoln had said years earlier in his "House Divided" speech, "This government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free."

He was right. It did not. But it cost the lives of over 600,000 of his countrymen to resolve the conflict.

In the throes of war, Lincoln said, "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us finish the work we are in..."

Stand strong. Not in anger, but in conviction. Conviction based on God's Word.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
