Keep the Iowa Standard Going!
Hillary Clinton is at it again. She claims to be a Christian and often quotes from the Bible. In June of 2018, she condemned “those who selectively use the Bible to justify” their political decisions, something she and her follow-Democrats do all the time.
She claimed that the Bible is “the biggest influence” on her thinking:
“At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it. I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement.”
She often cites the Bible in her speeches. The latest example comes from comments she made at the funeral of Rep. Elijah Cummings where she implied that President Trump and his wife are like King Ahab and his Sidonian Baal-loving wife Jezebel. The former Secretary of State said that like Cummings, the prophet Elijah “stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”
Here’s the problem with the comparison. It was Ahab who followed the pagan religion of his wife Jezebel. “So he erected an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he built in Samaria” (1 Kings 17:32). He also made an Asherah pole as part of pagan worship. It’s no wonder that the Bible says, “Ahab did more to provoke the LORD, the God of Israel, to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him” (1 Kings 16:33).
The Democrat Party has positioned itself as being as pagan as Ahab and Jezebel.
Democratic lawmakers in Massachusetts want to take “God” out of the oath of office for every elected official in the Bay State.
The bill, proposed by State Representative Mindy Domb, D-Amherst, would amend the state Constitution — the oldest in the country — from “so help me, God,” to a longer, secular version: “This I do under the pains and penalties of perjury.”
Once God is removed from an oath, the State becomes the new god. When Florida no longer required Notaries to affirm “so help me God” on their written oath of office, the Rev. Gerard LaCerra, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Miami, commented, “What are we supposed to base our commitments on if something like this is removed? The State?” Yes!
The Democrats are today’s Baalists. In addition, they are also worshipers of Moloch. Abortion is their pagan blood sacrament.
“Virginia politicians including Governor Ralph Northam recently repulsed countless Americans for casually endorsing the abortion of babies all the way up to literally the moment of birth and even beyond…. If the left is so literally hell-bent on having the right to put an infant – not a mere “clump of cells” but a live infant outside the mother’s womb – to death, then there is no moral limit to what they will do in service to their satanic vision. The Democrat Party is the face of Moloch, the Canaanite god whom Milton called the ‘horrid King besmear’d with blood / Of human sacrifice.’ It is a cult of criminality and death. On every political issue, Democrats take the side of chaos and destruction, crime and disorder.”1
The following statements are from officials at Planned Parenthood in praise of Elijah Cummings because of his support of killing unborn babies, of which the highest percentage are black babies:
After her marriage to Ahab, Jezebel “cut off the prophets of the Lord” (1 Kings 18:4). It was Obadiah who hid 100 prophets in caves: “Has it not been told my lord what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the LORD, how I hid a hundred men of the LORD’s prophets by fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water?” (1 Kings 18:13–14). The Democrats have continually attacked Christians for standing up for their beliefs. Bakers have been sued because they refuse to offer their services in support of same-sex marriage.
One baker was fined $135,000.
Don Lemon asked Beto O’Rourke the following question at the CNN town hall meeting on LGBTQRXTV issues:
“Do you think religious institutions like colleges, churches, charities, should they lose their tax exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage?”
“Yes. There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution, any organization in America that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us. So as president we’re going to make that a priority and we are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”
This is the work of a Jezebel.
It gets even worse if that’s possible:
At almost the same time as the CNN town hall, the Little Sisters of the Poor, who serve the elderly and impoverished, were again in court asking for protection from the ObamaCare mandate that tells them they must include contraceptive coverage in their employee health plans. It’s been a long legal journey: The Supreme Court has already been involved. So has the Trump administration, whose directives regarding religious protection have been challenged by certain states, which got injunctions, which have been upheld by the appellate courts. The Sisters are forced to appeal to the high court again, which will, please God, affirm, with clarity and force, the constitutional rights without which they cannot exist.
The Democrats have been working overtime to keep God out of their policies while claiming God for support. But which God? When Democrats use the word ‘god,’ they mean Baal and Moloch.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them (Matt. 7:15-20).
Don’t misunderstand me. Neither party is excited about God and His laws. While people like Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi claim to be fans of the Bible, they deny its moral precepts on abortion, theft, and same-sex sexuality. There are many in the Republican who are equally godless while claiming to acknowledge God. In both cases, they violate the Third Commandment, taking God’s name in vain.
The party of Ahab and Jezebel is the party of bloodshed and theft. When Naboth would not sell his vineyard to Ahab, Ahab sulked but Jezebel took action. She brought in false witnesses and confiscated his property and later killed him (1 Kings 21:1-16).
The Democrat Party is the party of confiscation. It continually wants to confiscate more property via taxation to promote programs that are unconstitutional, immoral, unproductive, and create dependency. Wealth redistribution is theft; it’s Jezebelian.
It remains to be seen how long it will take for the majority of Americans to see the wickedness of the party of Baal and Moloch and throw Jezebel down:
