In our secular society, there is a mighty struggle with the voting-block. That struggle consists of those who support godliness and those who oppose. This oversimplification of the categories suggests, nonetheless, where a problem lies. In the media we hear reports that some on the “radical right” want to take us back to a time when there were “morality police.” The people on the “godless left” want to take us into an arena of moral debauchery that Rome, of many years ago, had sown to its own destruction.

It is interesting to note that in Scripture the Lord had condemned many things, and though many things were condemned, it is also worth noting that He condemned those who supported those many condemned things. “Although they fully know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32, NET). This is stated in a context where the Lord gave up on those who know and practice such evil things. Consequently, it is fair to say that the Lord gives up on both (be sure to read thecontext)!

An interesting question that arises from such a remark is how is it that one supports such things? One can support such evil activities by engaging in them. This we know and no further comment is needed. However, unbeknownst to many people is the fact that one can support such evil activities by promoting those who support the practice. Some of the people who believe such things believe they are the enlightened ones living in an enlightened society, not encumbered by “traditional morality” of the past. They have come to accept a “new” morality, a morality that is judged by the person, not an all-powerful God that condemns (or saves) for all eternity. In fact, this “new” morality is supported by a god of one’s own making. This is our current political environment.

Do you support Democrat or Republican? Do you support Christian or not Christian? Do you support Secular Progressivism (liberals), Don’t Know (moderates), or Traditionalists (conservatives)? On such thoughts as I have expressed, this is where I get into the most trouble; but be that as it may, let us state it plainly.
