We Will All Be Made To Care

Today at the American Thinker Fletch Daniels has an article entitled The Democratic Cold War on Christianity is Heating Up. The day is coming when all will be required to say to God, "I am with you" or "I am against you." The Left is forcing this, and Christians will be made to suffer for their beliefs. But Daniels, for the sake of publication in the American Thinker makes the article about politics and the electorate:
One of the great unknowns in terms of the future electorate is the effect the Democrats’ increasingly radical anti-faith stance will have on its voting coalition.
Black and Hispanic Democrats tend to be far more religious than the white Democrats who are driving the party’s agenda. Will this alliance hold as the party increasingly kowtows to vocal anti-Christian Marxists? Will these voters start to defect as Democrats intensify their open war on people of faith?
These questions arose this week when the sad story emerged that Chick-fil-A would no longer support three mainstream Christian-based charities; the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home, all under the auspices that they are anti-LGBTQ.
While all that may be true, the real story is that the Left doesn't care about the LGBTQxyz people, nor does it have any compassion for these gender confused people. The Left sees this as a spear, and a wedge to drive between people pitting Christian against Christian, brother against brother and sister against sister. You will be made to care!
Any public person, group, company or church that identifies as Christian will be forced to take a stand on the question of whether or not they celebrate the LGBTQ lifestyle regardless of whether they want to or not, even if they barely care about the issue. That’s the plan. Because the Bible presents a clear position that is counter to the prevailing culture, it is an easy avenue of attack. The hate on this issue is one-sided. Christian theology teaches to love the sinner while hating the sin. Anti-Christian leftists practice hating the Christian while celebrating the sin. Christian unwillingness to celebrate the sin is the offense that cannot be overlooked.
A front-page article in USA Today noted that the Methodist church is about to split over this issue. Naturally, the article was sympathetic towards the LGBTQ movement and disparaging of Bible-believing Christians. But, churches that reject Biblical teaching have nothing left to stand on, for if some verses are untrue, then all of them can be cast into the fire. Churches that make these compromises become just another reflection of the dominant culture, salt that has lost its saltiness, which is indeed the point of the attacks.
Everyone, each individual, will be made to decide; whether I am on the side of God, or I am on the side of the culture, which unfortunately is on the side of The Evil One. For God is not on the side of men. God IS, and we must walk with him, not the other way around.

Mrs. PolyKahr once asked me how I became so radical. I told her that in truth, I have always believed these things. But as one by one my beliefs came under fierce attack, and I was forced to defend them, I went through a process of testing my beliefs against the arguments arrayed against them. Sometimes I changed beliefs, but that only made me more, in her words, "radical." That is because I found the arguments on the other side wanting.  They lacked truth.  Like all men though, I often come up short of my own beliefs, which requires me to pray for forgiveness and also strength and guidance.  Amen.
