The Moral Argument for God’s Existence.

  An atheist might say you can be good without believing in God. However the question isn’t can you be good without believing in God but can you be good without God? Here’s the problem if there’s no God. What basis remains for objective good or bad, right or wrong? If God does not exist objective moral values do not exist. Here’s why. Without some objective reference point we    really have no way of saying something is up or down. Gods nature however provides an objective reference point for moral values. It’s the standard which all action and thoughts are measured. However, if there is no God then there is no objective reference point. All we are left with is one persons view point as opposed to some other persons view point. This makes morality subjective not objective.  It’s like a preference for vanilla ice cream. The preference is in the subject not the object. Therefore it doesn’t apply to other people. In the same way subjective morality applies only to the subject. It’s not va

Who Would Jesus Vote For?

                                      Who Would Jesus Vote For?

    Someone asked me this question the other day. Does anyone remember the 1985 movie “Brewster’s Millions”? It’s a movie starring Richard Pryor. He inherits a fortune, 300 million dollars. But in order for him to get it he must first spend 30 million in 30 days but end up with no assets but the cloths on his back. One of the ways he spent most of it was on an election campaign. He didn’t want to be elected nor any of the other candidates. So his campaign slogan was “none of the above”.

    I think this is a good answer for the question, “Who would Jesus vote for?”. Jesus’ message for us today would be the same one he had for people back then.

    Jesus told Pontius Pilate that His kingdom was not of this world. It was from another place. Jesus wouldn’t attach Himself to any particular secular political ideology back then nor today.

    If we think about it, if He did vote one way or another this would then attach the gospel message of the kingdom of God to that secular political view. This in turn would alienate everyone that held the opposing political view point by erecting a barrier for people to receive the gospel of the kingdom of God which leads to the forgiveness of sin and the gift of eternal life.

    You see Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. His focus was and still is His kingdom. If anything, He wants all people everywhere, from every nation to vote for Him to be Lord and Savior.

    If you are a follower of Jesus Christ you are an ambassador of Christ. You are a Christian which means Christ like. You represent His kingdom not the kingdoms of humanity. We must be vigilant about attaching Jesus to a worldly kingdom or nation.

    Jesus didn’t send the disciples out to restore the earthly nation of Israel. He didn’t send the disciples out to make the Roman Empire into a Christian Empire. He sent his disciples out into every kingdom and nation for the expressed purpose of inviting all people out of every nation and kingdom into His Kingdom, the kingdom of God.

Matthew 25:32 (NIV)

[32] All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

Revelation 12:5 (NIV)

[5] She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.

Revelation 7:9 (NIV)

[9] After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

John 18:36 (NIV)

[36] Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world., .....But now my kingdom is from another place.” 

Now with all that being said, as Christians that live in a country that has the privilege to vote, allowing us to live in peace and promote God’s will for humanity even if humanity rejects their Creator. 

What are something’s we need to keep in mind? Not only is the Bible inerrant, it is also sufficient for informing believers how we are to act. Now when it comes to voting our focus is not on people but ideas. Since voting is a deed therefore we need to exercise this deed with this scripture in mind, Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, …”

No one is without sin. Every politician has skeletons. Unbelievers are in darkness and believers have their faults. So it’s not about the person (flesh and blood) but about the ideas they promote or support.

As followers of Jesus we are to take every idea and make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 

Now we must be wise about what political parties are saying. We must filter out propaganda from truth. We must examine the agenda of political parties. Then we must vote for the agenda that aligns more with God’s will.

Here are some ideas that are against God’s will:

Murder of the unborn 

The LBGT+ agenda

Transgender ideology 

Sexualizing kids in school 

Radical Gender Theory 

The destruction of the nuclear family

Men competing in woman’s sports

Promoting hormone replacement therapy and genital mutilation for kids

Critical Race Theory

Personal pronouns

Allowing strangers to enter your home without your permission 

Removing the ability to defend your family and yourself

Suppress peoples freedom to speak

Hostile to Christ’s values

To vote in support of these ideas would be, without reservation, against God’s will for His people and for all of humanity. To vote in support of laws that validate abortion would be carrying out Satan's will not God’s will.
