Are Professing Christians the Problem?

Intensity flows through my veins when God is in anyway connected to evil. It is inconceivable to me that anyone, especially Christians, would place causation of evil upon Him to whom the angels cry, “Holy, Holy, Holy.”

“In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.” Job 1:22 ESV

The slaughter of God’s children, inside their mother’s wombs, to the god of feminism is the most unconscionable act of Satan and sinful humanity.  Nothing matches the wickedness of this anti image-of-God, anti life-of-God, anti prized-creation-of-God abomination.

Please don’t believe that God wants, wills, or somehow is a more glorious God because of wickedness. By definition, to God nothing can be added and nothing can be subtracted.  If you can improve God, He isn’t God.  If you can reduce God, He isn’t God. God is truly the Self-Existent, Self-Sustaining, I AM.

Every four years (The United States Presidential election cycle) I beg and plead, rebuke and exhort any Christian who will give me a moment of their time, to disavow any allegiance to the works of Satan.

Born in 1960, my life has been lived under ten Presidents of the United States. Each president has claimed, to my knowledge, the name of Christ.

  • President John F. Kennedy  –  Catholic
  • President Lyndon B. Johnson – Baptized in 1923 at the “Christian Church” also called the “Disciples of Christ”
  • President Richard M. Nixon – Quaker also known as the Religious Society of Friends
  • President Gerald Ford – Episcopalian
  • President Jimmy Carter – Baptist
  • President Ronald Reagan – Disciples of Christ
  • President George H. W. Bush – Episcopalian
  • President Bill Clinton – Baptist
  • President George W. Bush – Methodist
  • President Barak Obama – Unspecified protestant

With this presidential history the United States has become as ungodly as any civilization in history.  These men have led our country into possibly the greatest spiritual decline in the history of the world.

This version of “christian leadership” has produced rampant debauchery, unprecedented vileness, and moral depravity beyond measure. Without a doubt these presidents have led the United States to a precipice of Divine judgement.

Who were the folks casting ballots for this type of leadership? What is the fiber of the folks who tirelessly worked these long and difficult campaigns? What is in the soul of the donors who sacrificially contributed for these elections?

The VAST majority are those who claim to be professing Christians. Professing Christians empowered this historic spiritual collapse. Professing Christians cheered the selection of anti-god, anti-Bible supreme court justices (I don’t capitalize because my Supreme Court is in Heaven).  Professing Christians say, “Personally I oppose abortion, but I feel it is every woman’s personal right to chose to kill God’s baby in her womb.” Professing Christians cheer on sexual sin as the freedom of personal choice.

The equation looks like this:

Professing Christians casting ballots + Professing Christians as Presidents = the greatest spiritual decline in the history of the world!

There must be something WRONG with professing Christians.

On September 12, 1960 presidential candidate John F. Kennedy spoke to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association.  Listen to the gigantic spiritual errors in the soon to be president’s speech.

I’m grateful for your generous invitation to speak my views.

While the so-called religious issue is necessarily and properly the chief topic here tonight, I want to emphasize from the outset that we have far more critical issues to face in the 1960 election: the spread of Communist influence, until it now festers 90 miles off the coast of Florida; the humiliating treatment of our president and vice president by those who no longer respect our power; the hungry children I saw in West Virginia; the old people who cannot pay their doctor bills; the families forced to give up their farms; an America with too many slums, with too few schools, and too late to the moon and outer space.

These are the real issues which should decide this campaign. And they are not religious issues — for war and hunger and ignorance and despair know no religious barriers.

Fifty-six years later, amidst this significant spiritual collapse, professing Christians are still saying, “We have far more critical issues to face in this election…than the fear of God, faith in Jesus, and obedience to God’s word. The real issues which should decide this campaign are “too late to the moon and outer space.””

What might be wrong with “professing christians?”

  • Professing Christ without knowing Jesus
  • Professing Christ without obedience to the Holy Bible
  • Professing Christ and believing that God needs darkness to somehow help His light
  • Professing Christ and believing that no amount of sin is a deal breaker
  • Professing Christ but replacing “thus saith the Lord” with, “I think…”

Every day, without exception, in this presidential election cycle, I hear professing christians speak opinions that will only push this nation further to the cliff of God’s judgement.

When I say “The greatest spiritual decline in the history of the world came from the ballots of professing christians and their leadership selections,” I speak against the tide of “tolerance” running rampant in this country.

Jesus’ best friend revealed the intolerance of our Lord.

Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8

Maybe professing christians who make a practice of sinning are of the devil?

Maybe believing that God needs the works of the devil is exactly what the devil hopes one will believe?

My take on Romans 12:9 is that sincere love must hate what is evil and cling to what is good.  Is it possible that professing christians think they have sincere love but do not hate what is evil?

I try to live honestly before God and people.  I don’t recall any one ever saying to me, “Kent, I don’t know where you stand on this issue.” I HATE what is evil (to the degree that I understand evil) and I HATE suggesting that God is the cause of evil and I HATE when good is made evil and evil is made good.

I ask God to help me CLING to the goodness of the image of God in all people, even those who who make evil a practice and those who are, in essence, evil people.

It seems a majority of professing christians must hate what is good and cling to what is evil otherwise 51,923,070 little US citizens would have been welcomed to embrace their first breath.

Don’t welcome evil as something that enhances God but make your vote a “destroying the works of the devil” ballot.

Do more than profess Christ.
