Prov. 14:34 states, "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." 29:2 states, "Where the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." Is America divided? Several speakers at the Democratic Convention said our nation is divided. Others said it is one nation united. We know they cannot have it both ways. One said that the "Pundits like to dice our country into red states and blue states."
The same speaker said, "John Kerry, will never sacrifice our basic liberties nor use faith as a wedge to divide us...Now even as we speak there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes...well I say tonight there is not a liberal America and a conservative America." Another speaker said, "So we decided we'd ride this donkey as far as it would take us...Read my lips Mr. President. Our vote is not for sale." He cannot have it both ways. He cannot say, "Our vote is not for sale" and then say "We'd ride this donkey as far as it will take us" meaning, "W would ride the elephant (sell our votes to the Republicans) if they would give us more." The same speaker said, "And let me quickly say, this is not about winning an election. It's about preserving the principles on which this very nation was founded." Does anyone who knows the founding principles of this nation believe that statement? The Democrats said the nation was divided, was not divided, and yet they were going to heal the division, even insinuating that the party in power is responsible for the division that does not exist (they state). If the Republicans were not in office, there would still be a strong division in America, guided by the same principles that the nation was founded upon, not the political party or person occupying the White House. The uniting of America is impossible until the two come together in agreement. That will never happen. In fact, America as we have known it would not even exist were it not for the Conservative, Biblical theology embraced by the "Founding Fathers" and no amount of rewriting of history will change that fact.
A short definition of the present day Liberalism is "de-emphasizing of dogmatic theology." Conservative on the other hand would be the opposite, "emphasizing of dogmatic theology." That is what divides our Nation. I would vote for a Democrat if he stood for dogmatic theology against abortion and gay rights as a conservative, and I would vote against a Republican who stands for those issues as a liberal. Listen to Rev. Al Sharpton's statement: "The promise of America is that government does not seek to regulate your behavior in the bedroom, but to guarantee your right to provide food in the kitchen." Republicans stand for your right to provide food in the kitchen but stand against the sodomite's right to marry in opposition to that set forth in the Holy Word of God. God did not call for an election in Gen 19...He cast one vote and it was anti-sodomite rights, Conservative. This article is not an endorsement of a person or party, but a principle.
