John MacArthur Says Democrats Adopted The Sins Of Romans 1 As Their Platform. Thank God When Prominent Christian Leaders Speak Out

For the official record, I actually made this same observation and point back on August 6.  I said:

The lowest point a culture can get is not abortion, as hateful and evil as abortion is; it is the moral crime of condoning and in fact honoring and celebrating homosexuality. It is in the Bible in black and white.

I can explain to you why that is.  It is because after God created man in His image He said to humanity:

God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” — Genesis 1:28

And from the very outset, from the Tower of Babel on, depraved, sinful, wicked man has had an “alternative” to the plan of the God who created one man for one woman.

It is no surprise that the Democrat Party – the party of genuine evil – would slander and pervert God’s will and plan by endorsing global warming and population controls and the most egregious slap in the face to His will of all: open recognition and celebration of homosexuality.

And I am glad to learn that John MacArthur is saying it too.

John MacArthur knows the Bible like only a few other human beings in the world today know it.  That kind of confirmation from a man I have deeply appreciated for years is powerful.

We are facing a tsunami of genuine evil pouring over this nation; and we are just about to find out what happens when a patient God finally gets angry.  And the most degenerate symbol of that is the embrace not just by the Democrats but by the nation they demagogue to of open homosexuality and its replacement of marriage.

It is also the most degenerate symbol of how our political and judicial branches and the decisions they make are rigged.  The people overwhelmingly vote year after year in state after state to either ban gay marriage or to define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.  Over and over again.  And liberal activist judges decide their morality ought to replace God’s.  Over and over again a Democrat-appointed liberal judge ignored the will of the people and decided that men not being allowed to marry other men somehow violates the Constitution.  Listen: any gay man can legally marry any woman eighteen or older who is crazy enough to have him; same as me.  Because that’s what real marriage is: the union of one man with one woman.  Nobody was deprived of their rights; a homosexual man CAN marry but he refuses to exercise his right.  You don’t get to substitute one right you freely chose not to exercise for another right created just for you; or if I forego on my right to eat brocoli tonight, does that mean I have the right to rape somebody?  A gay man chooses not to marry women and now I have to treat what God calls the “abomination” of the union of sodomites with the same dignity that I treat marriage?  And redefine not only marriage, but the family and society in the doing?  I mean, really?  I don’t think so.

But that is where the Democrat Party has pushed America.  And the fiscal cliff is not the only cliff America is falling over.  Or the worst.

Anyway, all that said, here’s what John MacArthur said:

Pastor John MacArthur: Democrats ‘Adopted The Sins of Romans 1 As Their Platform’
By Jon Street
December 10, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Evangelical pastor and author John MacArthur  said that the Democratic Party has “adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their  platform.”

“And as you know,” MacArthur told his Southern California  congregation on Sept. 30, “I’m not one to talk about politics as such,  but I was essentially amazed that one of the historic parties here in  the United States adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their platform. This  is a new day in our country. Parties which used to differ on economics  now differ dramatically on issues that invade the realm of God’s law and  morality.”

MacArthur is an author, pastor of Grace Community Church  in Sun Valley, Calif., president of The Master’s College and Seminary,  and a teacher at Grace to You media ministry.

“In an ideal situation, their platform would mean that the government  passes out condoms so people can fornicate at will,” said MacArthur.  “For those who happen to get pregnant in the process, the platform  advocates that you kill the baby at the will of the mother, up and including  the ninth month.”

“At the same time,” he said, “it advocates homosexual marriage,  which is an oxymoron, an utter impossibility, and a gross violation of the law  of God. And then, to add to that, the murder of abortion and then the  platform originally leaving God out. All of that is Romans 1.

“Romans 1 says God will judge, God has judged, throughout human history, nations that experience sexual freedom,” he said. “Romans Chapter 1 lays that out clearly. The wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against those who advocate sexual freedoms, sexual conduct outside of marriage. And that’s an indication of a demise of a nation.

“And then Romans 1 also says God will judge those nations that advocate homosexual behavior, men with men, women with women, doing what is unnatural,” said Pastor MacArthur. “They are also haters of God, haters of God.”

The Democratic Party voted to include support for same-sex marriage  in the party’s platform at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in  Charlotte, N.C.  At the convention, the party also affirmed its  endorsement of Obamacare, which includes a regulation requiring virtually all health-care plans to cover, without co-pay, sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing  drugs.

Upon approving the platform, the audience initially “booed” a  reference to God, although the mention of God was ultimately kept in the  party’s platform.

But MacArthur is not the first person to not the contrast between the Christian views espoused in St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans and Democratic Party views on such issues as homosexual marriage and abortion is not new one.

As CNSNews.com reported in 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at a campaign stop in Nelsonville, Ohio that the Sermon on the Mount is “more central” to his faith “than an obscure passage in Romans.”

“I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage,”  Obama said, “But I think that it is a legal right that they should have  that is recognized by the state. If people find that controversial, then  I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is,  in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in  Romans.”

Three days later, Obama told ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts that his views on gay marriage  were “evolving” and that the issue of gay marriage is also an issue of  “how we treat other people.” Citing his Christian faith, Obama added  that the root of his faith is “not only Christ sacrificing himself on  our behalf,” but also the Golden Rule: “Do to others as you would have  them do to you.”

In Romans 1, it states:

26 That is why God abandoned them to degrading passions:

27 why their women have exchanged natural  intercourse for   unnatural practices; and the men, in a similar  fashion, too, giving up normal   relations with women, are consumed with  passion for each other, men doing   shameful things with men and  receiving in themselves due reward for their   perversion.

28 In other words, since they would not consent to   acknowledge God, God abandoned them to their unacceptable thoughts and indecent behaviour.

29 And so now they are steeped in all sorts of  injustice,   rottenness, greed and malice; full of envy, murder,  wrangling, treachery and   spite,

30 libellers, slanderers, enemies of God, rude, arrogant and   boastful, enterprising in evil, rebellious to parents,

31 without brains, honour, love or pity.

32 They are well aware of God’s ordinance: that  those who   behave like this deserve to die — yet they not only do it,  but even applaud   others who do the same.

Here is a link to the King James   version of Romans 1.

There’s about a 2 1/2 minute video of MacAurthur preaching at the title link.

Pretty soon the Antichrist will be here, and people will have to choose whether to take his mark or die of starvation because you won’t be able to either buy or sell without that mark.

You seriously need to think about what you have been voting for and what you will be held responsible by a just and holy God for voting for.  If you are a Democrat, you PERSONALLY are responsible for every single one of the 55 million innocent human beings who have been murdered because of your vote for the Democrat Party.  We could do the math, figuring out how many Democrats have been elected since Roe v. Wade in 197.  It would probably be something like ten thousand babies were murdered for every single Democrat elected to office.  It is evil.  And you will burn in hell a trillion times a trillion years for each and every single nanosecond of the lives that each and every one of those babies should have had but didn’t because you decided it was legal to murder them.

And you will be held to account for the cancer you were to culture and to the world you were supposed to live righteously in but refused.  Because when you voted Democrat you voted for the homosexualization of society.

I want to understand how Democrats who call themselves “Christians” can justify voting for the wickedness of Romans 1 that God says will bring about His wrath on that nation and on the souls who practice such abomination.  I want to know how you plan to explain how you felt no fear of God when you destroyed 55 million of His precious little image bearers.  I want to know what you will say if God tells you that Jesus couldn’t die for your sins because you aborted Him in Mary’s womb.  The ugliness of abortion is greatest when it is applied to the meaning of Christmas.

And I want you to know that the hoofbeats of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse are sounding closer and closer and they’re riding harder and faster because you’ve allowed them to come with what you’ve done.

    Hi Mike,

    I listen to “Johnny Mac” on Grace to You somewhat regularly. I heard a large portion of this message on the radio.

    Here’s a thought for you: “Do you enjoy being Salt and Light to politically and theologically liberal ‘Christians’?”

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Truth Unites… and Divides,

    No, I really don’t. In the same way that most Christians who were martyred probably didn’t enjoy being martyrs either. But somebody needs to try to explain that “the last days” arises because of the very political and economic choices we have already made and are making now.

    People need to understand that the beast doesn’t just suddenly show up out of nowhere. Rather, the Antichrist will be riding the wave of a history that has turned demonic. He will be able to take hold of the socialism that has already come before and shape it to his own totalitarian ends. That’s what the mark of the beast is all about: either worship the beast or no big government bennies for you. It will just be a logical extension of Obama’s “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.” Because in the same way, “you didn’t build the economy, government did.” And “you didn’t create currency, government did.” And therefore the government ought to be able to have complete control over these things. And the Antichrist is going to seize that control that liberals have spent the last sixty years trying to give him.

  3. FMC Says:

    Much is always said about the antichrist in the last days, but it seems that little attention is given to the third person in the satanic trinity, the false prophet, who will deceive the world into following the antichrist. In my humble view, the false prophet, even though they both get their power from satan, may actually be more powerful than the antichrist because of the fact that he deceives through lying signs and wonders.

    A long time ago, I read a book that analyzed all the major civilizations that fell. I can’t remember the title or the author, but, after much research, he concluded that the major theme among all of them was a drastic moral decline, especially in the area of sex and mainly homosexuality. In recent years, I have noticed a noticable increase in homos and it seems like many of them are younger, that the younger generation is well populated with them and the trend is increasing.

    To accept and practice homosexuality is spitting right in God’s face. Personally, I think it offends Him most when his own creation does not acknowledge or respect Him as creator. Obviously, homosexuality is the epitome of this. Most of the homosexuals that I know had a strong hatred towards God and his ways. It seems that often the two go hand-in-hand. I tell you what, though, I will never accept it. Damn those God-hating, liberal democrats. I have always wondered if Barney Frank really knew that his lover was running a homosexual prostitution ring out of his apartment. I bet not only did he know, but that he was “physically” involved.

    FMC,

    Revelation 13:4 tells us that the political beast, the beast from the sea, would receive the power of Satan, which is not the case of the false prophet. And the false prophet performs his signs and wonders on the behalf of the political beast and it is the political beast whom the world will worship. So on that level, the political beast is the one who is “more powerful,” on my view.

    That said, you make a very interesting point about the false prophet. Revalation 13:11 says “Another beast,” meaning another of the same kind. There will in fact be two beasts, two leaders who rise to power in these two spheres of “the two unmentionable subjects” of politics and religion.

    You’re right; the only miracle the first beast performs is his rising from a mortal head wound. That said, you can’t argue very successfully that it will be the false prophet who causes him to rise from the apparent dead; he isn’t even mentioned for another seven verses.

    The second beast rises from the land, and he clearly is a religious leader.

    What’s interesting is that it is this religious beast who causes people to take the mark of the beast – which is an economic act almost as much as a religious one. It will result in the complete takeover of the economy and the global money supply in a system that will enable Antichrist to monitor every single financial transaction on earth. But this economic takeover will be instituted on religious grounds by a religious leader.

    That used to puzzle me. I think I understand now.

    Today, right now, liberals argue for the massive growth of government. But they don’t argue it in economic terms; they argue it as “social justice.” Obama himself may have summed it up best in an exchange with ABC anchor Charles Gibson:

    MR. GIBSON: You have however said you would favor an increase in the capital gains tax. As a matter of fact, you said on CNBC, and I quote, “I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton, which was 28 percent.”

    It’s now 15 percent. That’s almost a doubling if you went to 28 percent. But actually Bill Clinton in 1997 signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20 percent.

    SENATOR OBAMA: Right.

    MR. GIBSON: And George Bush has taken it down to 15 percent.

    SENATOR OBAMA: Right.

    MR. GIBSON: And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased. The government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down. So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?

    SENATOR OBAMA: Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.

    Do you understand what happens (I know YOU do, FMC)? Gibson factually demonstrates that tax hikes are economically stupid because the government actually takes in more revenue if taxes are LOWER. And Obama grabs the horns of that dilemma (that what he wants to do is stupic economically) and says that it’s “fairness.” Obama yields the economic argument and switches to a different category. In other words, right now, liberals are NOT making an economic argument; they’re making a moral one. That we ought to do what’s “fair” and have “social justice” even though the economy will be smaller and weaker as a result of their “fairness.” Which is a religious argument already.

    And again and again Obama has been depicted by the mainstream media propaganda machine framed with a background that makes him appear to have a halo. His followers have described him as a messiah many times.

    What we’re going to see in the Tribulation is a religious system erected around a political leader. We of course saw that in ancient times; we’re going to see it again (to the extent we haven’t ALREADY seen it begin in Obama).

  5. Dog Walker Says:

    I got the podcast of Mac preaching on Romans 1. That is a good voice to have stuck in my head. Thanks for pointing to that.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    The only thing that beats mac and cheese is Mac and Romans, I’d say.
