2000 Years of Deception and Error, Part 2B: Politics of the “Christian” Right

My intention in writing this blog (which I haven’t been able to do until now because of nests of related error I found on the way) is to make readers aware of what I perceive as a massive political agenda on the right (not that the left is better), which couches its goals in “Christian” terms, thereby gaining much support. It is my opinion, that these errors that have come down to us through the years, are contained in the beliefs of certain people and churches, and give credence to the folk that are into setting up a “Christian” political system, some of the elements of which I talk about in my Constantine/Augustine blog. I found the following news item on September 30, 2007, which reinforces my thought:

Christian Conservatives Consider Third-Party Effort

My comments about the article:

• Why is the Council for National Policy meeting in Salt Lake City?

• What is their agenda? (Notice the word secret is used.)

• Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family “is perhaps the most influential of the group”. He’s a part of a number of websites I’ve seen lately. (More on him in a later blog.)

• I’ve not heard of Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, but, as I will be discussing in the future, “family” and “pro-life” seem to be rallying words and a banner many belief systems can agree with.

• Pew Research Center has been popping up in my recent research. My observation is that it is very ecumenical.

• So Pat Robertson of CBN has provided coverage for Mr. Giuliani, and the reason the CNP met was to think up an alternative person for president. Are they going to pit two different “Christian” thoughts regarding a future president against each other?

Perhaps you would like to research the Council for National Policy. Just keep in mind, that, as you probably know, the reader needs to be discerning.

My comments about the people in the Council of National Policy.

• It would seem that these supposed evangelical leaders want to, in the name of Christianity, run the goverment.

• These leaders are banking on their “Christian” rhetoric about morals, etc. to gather folk to support them. Apparently, they must think this is a huge group and that they are in control of it.

• They don’t seem to know that you can’t legislate morality. The heart is desperately wicked…

• We’ve had pro-life presidents, but still no change, and things are getting worse.

• Perhaps if these so called Christian leaders would concentrate on spreading the gospel (as Jesus commanded), instead of working towards a “Christian” government, we would have seen a turning of the hearts of people to God’s ways. Only God can change a heart. You can not superimpose rules, on people to make them change.

  1. I didn’t read all your links, just what you posted. So, I am wondering what your position is. Is it your position that Christians should not be involved in politics? What is the “massive political agenda on the right” that you refer to? Is said agenda, in your opinion, anti-Christian, pro-Christian, or neither? Is it your position that these people (who “couch” the goals of said political agenda in “Christian” language) lack sincerity (that is, their motives are not pure/their actions do not stem from what they believe is the right thing for them to do)?
    Who do you think ought to run the government?

  2. Hello Kevin,

    Thank you for writing and for your questions.

    As to Christians being involved in politics, Daniel and Joseph were certainly used of God. As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour, I do what He has given me to do, whether it is a job in business, education, the auto industry, the home, the political arena or any other area.

    As I continue with the series “2000 years of Deception and Error”, I hope you will understand why I say “massive political agenda on the right.” My point is that there IS an agenda and that is to control the government and that they are using Christians who are unsuspecting or not well founded in God’s Word, by their quasi-Christian rhetoric.

    As to their motives, I don’t know. I would imagine that some are doing what they think is the right thing to do, which is part of the deception. I like to “follow the money trail”, but at the same time remember:

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”—Ephesians 6:12
