Oxymoron: a figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.” Christian-Democrat is an oxymoron.
Can a Christian be a Democrat; that is the question. First, we must define our terms. According to the dictionary, a Christian is someone who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. Well, what are His teachings? Jesus summed everything up in Matthew 22:37-40. He said in response to the scribes: … “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and most important command.  The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.  All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.” To understand what this means, we must look to the Old Testament for clarification. The Bible tells us how to live the Christian life in Exodus 20:3-8,12-17: Do not have other gods besides me.  Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.  Do not bow in worship to them, and do not serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, bringing the consequences of the fathers’ iniquity on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me,  but showing faithful love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commands.  Do not misuse the name of the LORD your God, because the LORD will not leave anyone unpunished who misuses his name.  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy:  Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.  Do not murder.  Do not commit adultery.  Do not steal.  Do not give false testimony against your neighbor.  Do not covet your neighbor’s house. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. All of these commandments are repeated in the New Testament except for the one about the Sabbath (this may be discussed in a future post).
What is a Democrat? According to the dictionary, it is “someone who believes in the political or social equality of all people.” On the surface, that sounds nice. However, that simply is not practical. Regardless of any type of society, there always has and always will be those that have much and those that have little. That’s just the reality. The Democratic Party today does not look like the definition. Now, let’s take a closer look at the two.
We know from recent events that the Democrat Party supports the racist, anti-family, anti-Christian, anti-USA, communist, violent, Black Lives Matter organization. This is in direct opposition to several of the commandments, including the one about honoring your father and mother. The BLM promotes the breakdown of the family unit. With most black children already living in fatherless homes, it will only worsen if they win.
Christianity teaches us that murder is a violation of God’s Word. The Democrats support Planned Parenthood, which specializes in the murder of unborn babies. The Democrats even support and promote the murder of newborn babies simply because the mother decides that she doesn’t want the baby. How abominable this must be to a Holy God.
Adultery is also an abomination to God’s Word, yet former President Bill Clinton was a keynote speaker at the 2020 Democratic National Convention. He is also highly regarded in all Democratic circles. This is a man who has committed multiple confirmed cases of adultery, at least one in the Oval Office, while he was president. In addition, Joe and Jill Biden were married to other people when they started their adulterous affair. Now he is the Democratic Presidental Nominee along with his running mate, Kamala Harris. She has also been involved in multiple adulterous affairs.
Do not steal is another commandment that Christians uphold. However, during the recent riots by BLM and Antifa, the rioters became looters by destroying property and taking everything they wanted. This illegal activity has been condoned by the Democrats in Congress as well as the party itself.
The ridiculous impeachment hearing, the attempted coup against President Trump, and the hearing to confirm Justice Cavanaugh are just a few of the many instances of giving false testimony or outright lying by numerous Democrats in Congress.
Christians are also taught not to covet the possessions of others. Yet the Democrats obsess about the amount of money and property some people have and want to steal from them and give to others.
According to the Democrats, there are at least 63 different genders. This is absolutely asinine to anyone with a grain of common sense. Genesis 1:27 says: So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female.
The evidence is overwhelming. Anyone who supports the Democrat Party, platform, or candidate, is not a Christian. The Word of God is clear. You cannot violate practically every commandment and also follow the teaching of Jesus Christ. You cannot call yourself a Christian.
If you have read this and realize that you have been hoodwinked by the Democrats, and want to follow Jesus Christ or maybe you are a Christian that has been fooled and want to get back to The Word, there is still hope for you. Fortunately, we have a loving God who is always willing to welcome you into His family or restore fellowship to those that have strayed away. The Bible tells us in Romans 10:9, If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For the believer who needs to come home, 1 John 1:9 says If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
