Liberal Christianity Is an Oxymoron

I know I’m going to get a lot of heat for this blog, and that’s alright.  I’m used to the hate these days from online readers and objectors.  But what I’m going to say in this blog WILL  be supported by those who IN FACT have the Holy Spirit in them – the leading gift from God when we become born again.  The Holy Spirit gives us the gift of discernment, and guides and leads us in truth as it is the spirit of God Himself, shared with His followers.

I know that some politically liberal minded people believe they are Christians for a gamut of reasons.  Some believe they have an edge on Christianity that conservatives are missing.  Maybe it’s because they believe in “fairness” to all people, or they believe in “giving to others”.  They see themselves as pet lovers, earth lovers, and lovers of all things and all people.  Or maybe it’s because they attend church every week.

Fairness, giving, loving God’s creations, and loving others ARE in fact scriptural and biblical, and I will give them that.  Sadly, however, there are MANY things within the liberal party that are ANTI-biblical AND Anti-Christ, and for some reason, these are skipped over in liberalism, or simply justified in some ungodly and “ignorant-to-His-Word” fashion.

I’ve also heard liberals argue that Jesus was a liberal.  Of course, conservatives will say the same but truthfully?  Jesus had no political affiliation whatsoever – especially with modern day American political parties.  Jesus had qualities of both parties, but leaned MORE towards the ideology of conservatives today.  Maybe not the love of our guns, but many other things, yes.

Let me explain some key points:

  1.  BOTH Conservatives and liberals believe in giving to others – with one difference:  liberals like the government to handle their money for them and give it away to whatever the government chooses, while conservatives would rather hold on to their money so they personally can give to the person, people, or organization of their choice.

This does not mean conservatives don’t wish to be taxed at all.  It simply means we like lower taxes, less government, and less federal power over the people.  “Render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s”….Yes….we get that.  This does not mean, however, that Ceasar should tax the people to death, destroy their finances, or kill their businesses.

2.  BOTH Conservatives and liberals believe in fairness to all, again with a difference.  Conservatives like to TEACH men how to fish so they can eat for a lifetime, Liberals want to give a man a fish so they can eat for a day.  Micro managing, control, and the belief that people are just “too uneducated” to care for themselves appropriately seems to be the way of the liberal, thus why the bigger government, the higher taxes, the more regulations.  This is not FREEDOM.  This is enslavement.  Conservatives like freedom.  No, we LOVE freedom, because we feel everyone is capable of doing and caring for themselves as they see fit, with as little government interference as possible.

Obviously there are cases of the disabled and elderly, or very young, who have no others to care for them, that need some assistance.  We conservatives would be MORE willing to help those if the government wasn’t tying our hands so much with regulations, taxes penalties and more.

Scripture actually told the Jews early on that they should all own their own land, care for the widows, use the land for food, resting it every 7th year.  It doesn’t tell us “let the government control and meddle in every aspect of your lives”.  God wants FREEDOM for us because with more freedom, we are happier, more productive, and more giving.  To be honest, God didn’t even want a King reigning over the Jews in their land, but since they wanted to be like other nations, they were granted a King.

3.  ABORTION:  Ahh….here’s a fun one.  I would like to ask liberals – WHERE IN SCRIPTURE DOES GOD CONDONE THE KILLING OF BABIES (His Creation) IN THE WOMB?

I would like to add as a side note – I don’t think it fair of the conservative Christian world to call ALL who’ve had abortions “murderers”, or even insinuate that’s what they are by calling abortion “murder”.  I think that is very offensive of Christians to the secular world and shouldn’t be uttered because it turns people away from Christ in our example.  God even tells us He studies the HEART OF MAN.  Many women have only 1 abortion, and deal with emotional trauma over that choice for sometimes a lifetime.  Have a little compassion and empathy!  God forgives those who seek it and wipes that sin away.  For Christian conservatives to call them murderers is just wrong.  Even just calling abortion itself murder insinuates those who have had one ARE murderers.  Might I throw in the “Plank in your own eye” verse here as a reminder.  And for those who disagree still, I’ll add “He without sin cast the first stone.”

I believe the sin doesn’t start with the abortion….it starts with lust in the heart, pre-marital sex, promiscuous sex, etc.  Maybe if more people got married before sex, stayed married having sex with only one person, there would seriously be a LOT less abortions.

The liberal party stands greatly on abortion.  They use abortion for one of their talking points, and a platform.  They call the fetus a “clump of cells”.  They say “it’s a woman’s right to choose.”  In the first week or so, yes, it is a clump of cells and frankly, most women don’t even have a clue they are carrying a baby until AFTER the cells have started to form together into a fetus.  I don’t EVER hear of abortions in the first 2 weeks after conception.  And almost equally rare is the abortion prior to the fourth and fifth week after conception.  And yes, it IS a woman’s right to choose abortion…just as it’s all of our rights to choose other sins.  Do you suppose Jeffrey Dahmer believed he had the right to kill those men?  Do you believe a porn addict has the right to watch porn?  Sure!  We all have free will.  But having a right doesn’t make the right RIGHT.  It doesn’t even make it moral.

If liberals love others so much, wouldn’t they stand against abortion?  KNOWING that these women were making sinful choices that could separate them from God FOREVER, all while condoning it?  Wouldn’t liberals, who as self-professing Christians, who are supposed to love God with every part of their being, NOT want to offend Him by standing by this sin?

James 4:14  For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” 16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.  17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

James 5:  19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.

4.  THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA:  Another platform the left stands on these days.  If I were a liberal, the SECOND Obama reversed on his stance that marriage is “between a man and woman”, I would have said “adios” to the liberal party forever – as a Christian.

It’s not that we conservative Christians don’t LOVE those who take part in sexual deviation.  We do love them, and we also know that their lifestyle choice is morally WRONG.  We all KNOW it is.  We know it in our hearts.  We Christian conservatives see it as those people are standing in a burning house.  Are we NOT to warn them and try to save them from the burning house?  Should we just stand by, idly, silent, with our cell phones in hand, recording it burn?  Political correctness says “yes” – that this is EXACTLY how we should be dealing with this matter.  That’s not love.  That’s hate in the most selfish way.

There is a perfect design in us that simply cannot be denied….the creation of man and woman, their organs, and both their body’s functionality.  If God wanted man to be with man, or woman to be with woman, He would have created just one sex.  THIS is why homosexuality and perverseness is so shunned in scripture and in the Christian world.  God doesn’t make mistakes. And you can forget the “born that way” argument…too many scientists have already proven there is simply no “gay gene” or a “transgender gene”.

For us to condone a sin, is the same as being guilty of said sin:

Romans 1: 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

I simply cannot fathom how any Christian can openly and forwardly declare themselves liberal KNOWING that the left stands FOR these blatant sins, some of which are called an “abomination” to the Lord they claim to love.

Just these 4 reasons alone I believe make a pretty darn good case to the title of this blog.  I could go into evolution, Marxism, loving the earth (which is really paganism), etc., but this blog is long enough.  Plain and simply, those that claim to be liberal AND Christian are no better than the Pharisees in Jesus’ day; hypocritical, and ignorant to God’s REAL teachings to all of us.  In conclusion, Liberalism and Christianity simply don’t mesh.

2 Timothy 4:  Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

I welcome friendly debate on this subject.  Hate will be trashed as I approve all comments.  Please, if you wish to be part of the discussion, comment below.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.  Peace to you all, today and every day.

  1. Brandy, as usual, your thoughts are spot-on. The Romans and 2Timothy verses are two that liberals like to ignore. You can’t have liberal leanings if you truly understand and accept Scripture. Liberal beliefs and Scripture are not compatible.

  2. Hi..Many many many years ago, maybe Christianity could walk in the foot steps of a liberal. Today? NO WAY!!!!!! Liberalism is totaolly against everything God is for. I remember in the 2012 DNC, they voted God out of their party. Maybe you saw that.
    God Bless
