We say this to Maxine Waters and every person who tells people to sin. We needed to interrupt our examination of different scholars because the abuse of the Bible, the abuse of God is not limited to Jeff Sessions only. Everything we say here applies to both sides of the issue and beyond that issue. You can read the full article here:
At a weekend rally in California, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters encouraged her supporters to “absolutely harass” Trump staffers when they visit restaurants, gas stations or departmental stores as a way to protest the president’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy.
Ms. Waters is probably reading a different Bible than we our. Ours says that we are not to return evil for evil. Our Bible does not instruct us to harass those we do not like, but to pray for them. Our Bible tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves, not to set them up as possible targets for evil. The distortion of the ‘zero-tolerance immigration policy’ has reached its zenith. Also, our Bible says we are to obey the government except when their commands, etc., lead us to disobey God. Ms. Waters’ Bible seems to be saying a lot of different things. By the way, stopping illegal immigration is not against God’s commands or instructions.
“I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it is wrong what they’re doing on so many fronts but they tend to not want to confront this president,” Waters told her supporters in Los Angeles Saturday, according to a video.
Wrong in whose eyes? Governments have difficult jobs to do. They need to govern wisely but it is rare for them to make a decision everyone in the country is going to agree with. When it comes to children, the government is in a no win situation and that is unfair. The children are being used for whatever purpose the parents and other adults have in mind, so why aren’t Ms. Waters and her supporters outraged at those actions? They are just as sinful as the ones they claim the government is committing. Remember the distorted and misused image on Time’s cover? Ms. Waters and the Left do not have clean hands nor a pure heart in this issue.
Why is not Ms. Waters outraged that so many people are disrespecting the laws of America and other western nations? Escaping poverty is not a reason to ignore one’s country’s laws. But people lose their heads when children are involved and stop thinking rationally, logically and biblically. The government has the right to handle the nation’s affairs as they see fit. God will bring them into account for their actions. He will also bring into account those people like Ms Waters who advocate bringing evil to those they do not like. We do not throw out biblical instruction just because children are involved.
Waters also told the crowd “God is on our side,” in reference to Trump’s immigration policies.
Sorry Ms. Waters, but when you do and advocate that evil be done, then God is not on your side. If you recall, God punished sinful unrepentant children when it was time for them to be judged. He did not throw out his rules just because a child was involved. God is on the side of honesty, honest justice, mercy, fairness and other non-sinful actions for all parties involved, not just for a few favored God is not on the side of those who do evil, whether they are Republican or Democrat, Conservative or Liberal. God is on the side of those who obey him and Ms. Waters is not obeying God. She is not even close to it.
While you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don’t know the Bible. God is on our side, on the side of the children, on the side of what’s right …,” she said.
Again we must say no to Ms. Waters. Her side is not right and she knows the Bible less than Mr. Sessions does. She is telling people to disobey God’s word. But we are not the only ones who see the evil in her words. As you read that article you will see that there are those who have realized how dangerous her words really are
“This is an elected official in America coming very close to encouraging mob violence… This is also very disturbing,” he tweeted.
Then the words of the restaurant owner do not help in this issue
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
If she wanted to uphold her morals and make an uncomfortable decision then she should not have asked Ms. Saunders to leave. It is clear that her morals come from a different Bible than the one we read. Ms. Saunders and her party had done nothing wrong. Jesus ate with sinners and did not kick them out when they wanted something to eat. Surely, the owner of that restaurant is not greater than he. There is also no biblical instruction to throw people out of a restaurant when you merely disagree with them politically.
Our Bible says to feed your enemies, not persecute them. Our Bible tells us that the only time Jesus threw someone out of a place was when they made his father’s house a mockery. What is clear is that both the owner of the restaurant and Ms. Waters have no idea what the Bible says. What is also clear from this and many other incidents, is that people from both sides will use the Bible to their advantage and support their agenda. Our Bible tells us to not throw the first stone when catching someone in sin.
We are sure that Ms. Waters, the restaurant owner and so many others are not without sin. Christians cannot throw the first stone but seek to humbly obey God even in this immigration and political issue. We are not going to solve any problem by exploiting it for political, spiritual or other gain or by encouraging others to sin.
In an interview aired Saturday on Trinity Broadcasting Network, Trump told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee that Democrats failed to “sit down to draw an agreement that’s good for security.”
It is pretty hard to get rational, logical and biblical conversations going when one side is being irrational, illogical and unbiblical. Remember children are not the defining point on what laws are to be obeyed or not. Hell will be filled with children who did not repent of their sins. If you need an example to support that statement, then go to Genesis 6.
When God says everyone thought of nothing but evil, he did not exempt the children. Romans 3:23 & 6:23 do not leave children out either. It would be wise to teach your children the ways, laws and commands of God so that they may obey God, live long, miss hell, and not be used as pawns by others.
