Biden-- On Trump And His Bible

Most of us are aware that President Trump walked across the street from the White House to the historic St. John's Church that rioters set fire to Sunday evening. He stood in front of the church and held up his Bible. Which ignited a firestorm of rage and hatred from his political enemies---Joe Biden, none the least of them, has weighed in.

Biden's condemnation reveals more about Biden than Trump.

Be informed.

This is the transcript of Biden's comments about Trump and his Bible:

Joe Biden: “The president held up the Bible at St. John’s Church yesterday. I just wish he opened it once in a while, instead of brandishing it. If he opened it, he could have learned something. We’re all called to love one another as we love ourselves. That’s really hard work. But it’s the work of America. Donald Trump isn’t interested in doing that work. Instead, he is preening and sweeping away all the guard rails that have long protected our democracy. Guard rails that help make possible this nation’s path to a more perfect union—a union that constantly requires reform and rededication, and, yes, protest from voices that are mistreated, ignored, left out or left behind.”

Let's talk about Biden's "path to a more perfect union."

First, that statement is an echo of President Obama who used it often as an enabling deception as he tried to dismantle the foundations of our culture and our economy---remove the guardrails. He called it "remaking America."

Abortion, and Biden's path to a more perfect union

Axios, not a conservative news source, was apparently trying to warn their fellow pro-abortion pilgrims when they published an article a while back noting how Biden has wiggled and flopped on the issue of abortion.

Fortune Magazine is also expressing concerns about what Biden really believes.

Recently at Limestone College in South Carolina, Biden told the students:
"I'm prepared to accept for me, personally, doctrine of my church about when life begins, but I'm not prepared to impose that on every other person"

He repeated what he has said many times,
"I will support codifying Roe v Wade into federal law, if elected."

During the campaign, Biden's people told NBC that Biden is absolutely supportive of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits abortions being funded by taxpayer dollars.

But the same week, facing criticism from fellow presidential candidates, Biden told the far Left Huffington Post:
"If I believe healthcare [ that's a code word for abortion] is a right, as I do, I can no longer support the Amendment."

He says his flip-flopping on abortion over the years, including the Hyde Amendment, is because "circumstances have changed."

Circumstances are always changing. Constructing our core moral beliefs on "changing circumstances" is called "foolish" by Jesus: Like the man who built his house on the sand.

Perhaps Joe should open his Bible, as well.

Codifying Roe v Wade essentially puts the so-called "right" to abort unwanted children essentially out of the reach of those who seek to overturn the law.

Fortune also notes that abortion is not the only issue Biden has split from his Catholic Church's official stance.

He is a longtime supporter of LGBTQ demands and a supporter of so-called "same-sex marriage."

LGBTQ and Biden's path to a more perfect union.

John Hirschauer wrote an excellent article in the National Review in April about Biden's position on LGBTQ. Biden has laid out his plan for the LGBTQ agenda when he becomes president. You should know what it is.

There are about 3 main promises in his promise to the LGBTQ community.

1. He highlights his pledge to ensure that "the discriminatory lifetime ban on blood donation" for gay men---a ban he bases on "stigma" remains lifted, [Obama era] and he promises to implement "regulations that are based on science."

Interestingly, science and data say that about 2% of the American population are homosexual men, but they make up nearly 70% of the national HIV caseload. HIV is transmitted through blood.

2. Biden also promises to "decriminalize HIV exposure and transmission" because such laws "perpetuate discrimination and stigma towards people with HIV/AIDS."

3. The third prong of Biden's more perfect union involves changing the "underlying attitudes about LGBTQ+ issues" through "public information campaigns."

I suppose that would amount to a campaign against churches who do, in fact, open their Bibles, and continue to "cling to their Bibles" and maintain the outdated view that God's plan for human sexuality does not include same-sex relations. God calls them an abomination.

If Joe would open his Bible he would see that the God of love, also is the God of Truth. An open Bible would show that God says (Romans 1) that because people have rejected His Truth, He has given them up to uncleanness and a debased mind resulting in "women exchanging the natural use for what is against nature, and men leaving the natural use of the woman, burning in lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful..." calling it "the penalty of their error."

Climate Crises and Biden's path to a more perfect union.

This is the headline: "Biden Names Ocasio-Cortez, John Kerry to Lead His Climate Task Force, Bridging Democrats' Divide."

The subhead says, "Progressives applaud the former vice president's embrace of Bernie Sanders' climate advisers. One analyst called the panel 'the climate Dream Team for Democrats."

You can read the article, or simply fill in the blanks. It's a nightmare, not a dream.

The takeaway.

Sadly, Joe wants to be seen as religious, but certainly not biblical. His would be a difficult path to walk: claiming to believe something in one's heart while leading a nation down the path to destruction under the guise of "not wanting to impose his beliefs on others."

James describes a "double-minded man" as unstable in all his ways.

The book of Romans speaks about those who have seen or known the truth of God but acting against His Truth as "Professing to be wise they became fools."

Which path will America choose? Jeremiah (6:16) put it this way:
"Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls."

The people of his day said:
"We will not walk in it." In 2020 we will have opportunity to make our decision as to which path we believe is pleasing to God, and the path to a more perfect union."
