The Democrat Party held their National Convention this week, nominating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as their nominees for President and Vice President.

Many of the luminaries of the Democrat Party made speeches at the convention, from former Presidents Obama and Clinton to Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and more.

So what does the Democrat Party stand for that half of our electorate will support? A simple and accurate answer to that question is: Romans 1:18-32. In other words, the party and its leaders “suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18) through their rejection of God and His law.

Think that’s an overstatement? Then tune in this weekend to The Christian Worldview to hear excerpts of various speeches from their convention and official party platform.

Democrat National convention party of Romans chapter 1 is a top will discuss today right here on the Christian worldview radio program where the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christians, and also to share the good news the gospel that all people repent and believe in Jesus Christ can be reconciled to God and be forgiven of their sin receive everlasting eternal life with God in heaven.

That is good news. Thank you joining us today. I'm David. We host our website is the Christian were going to discuss the Democrat National convention today that they held their national convention this week.

Nominating Joe Biden and Kemal Harris as their nominees for president and vice president. Many of the luminaries of the Democrat party made speeches at the convention that will hear from today from former presidents Obama and Bill Clinton to Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton to Alexandria Anacostia Cortez and many more.

So what does the Democrat party stand for that half of our electorate will vote for a simple and accurate answer to that question is of what they stand for is written in the Bible in Romans chapter 1 verses 18 through 32 get into that. In other words the party and its leaders from that passage in Romans one suppress the truth in unrighteousness that's aligned in Romans one will read it through how they do that through their outright and blatant rejection of God and his laws and think that's an overstatement, then you want to tune in today to the Christian Realty as we hear excerpts of various speeches from their convention and also read some excerpts from their official party platform. So this week in the lead up to the program I heard an interview because John MacArthur has been in the news a lot recently because of his church in California that has continued or opened up to have Sunday services. Despite the governmental orders in California to shut down indoor gatherings and so forth and so on.

So they're just going on meeting by basing it on the biblical command that were not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, even if there is a virus. We still assemble together doing in ways that the church decides can be safe and they're doing that they may meeting for a couple months now. There's been a lot of legal wrangling back and forth. He may be of seen John MacArthur interviewed on some the national news programs and and so he's been in the news recently for that and he was interviewed this week on a program called just the news by host David Brody and he was asked just about the state of the nation, not so much about the that the church reopening of the he was asked about that but specifically about the state of America. And here's what John MacArthur had to say about where America is spiritually made him wonder if you could address some of the spiritual state of our nation and as to how this is been kind of sucked up into the oxygen of all of that. Yeah, and in there. There are two ways that I that I would look at that David number one is this in Romans chapter 1 says in verse 18 the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness. Nothing could ever be more defining of America than that we hold the truth in unrighteousness.

When we were fit founded on Judeo-Christian ethics, morals and standards. The assumption was that the state nation started because people wanted religious freedom that's buried deep into the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment. So if any nation is ever held the truth, we have what we are holding it in unrighteousness this nation to be honest with you sort of collectively looks like the Jerry Springer show that and that really is what Romans one tells us Romans one says the wrath of God is revealed. And then it defines what that is. First of all, God gave them over to sexual immorality that that's the first thing that happens that's in Romans 124 second thing God gave them over to homosexuality.

Verse 26 2028. The third one verse verse 26.

Rather, verse 28 is give them over to a reprobate mind so what wrath is this well it's not eschatological wrath is not eternal wrath is the wrath of abandonment. When God abandons a nation to its own sins when God pulls back his restraints. What will you see the sexual revolution followed by a homosexual revolution followed by a reprobate mind.

And out of that reprobate mind at the end of the chapter comes all kinds of evil. And it also says even though they know these things bring about death, they not only do them but they applaud the people who do them so that that's the sort of Jerry Springer idea. So we're living in a time people say what the wrath of God must be near nowhere in it and the evidence is we've gone through the sexual revolution through the homosexual revolution and when you get the reprobate mind. What would that look like will that would be when your member you think your woman. That's when you've reached the level of insanity the other way I look at it is that is biblically speaking, we have a collision of sinners, of in the world were all fallen. Wages of sin is death and everybody dies. So how does God restrain sin. So society can flourish for his redemptive purposes and his glory is to put restraints restrain number one is the law of God written in the heart and the weapon is the conscience. So what needs to happen.

If you want to get rid of that is you rewrite the law you turned morality on its head turned it inside out and then tell people if they have a guilty conscience. They shouldn't because they're better than that. They shouldn't feel shame so you you do everything you can to assault the conscience and assault. The law written in the heart. The next restraint is the family. So if you want to get rid of that you destroy the family every way possible you go after the family we get that that's what's been going on for decades now the third restraint is the police so are we surprised when the police are now under assault. They've already done in the human conscience they've done in the family and now. Thereafter, the police defund the police spit on the police that that's the third restraint government. Romans 13.

The fourth restraint is the church. The church is salt and light in the world. So let's go after the church. This is a systematic satanically inspired assault on all the divine restraints in the world.

We shouldn't be surprised that it's happening because it's folded into the very wrath of God returns over a society to their sinful choices and the consequences are inevitable. While he set an awful lot of particular soundbites and in this is why I respect this man so much. Not only is he biblically sound and he's been teaching the same doctrines of Scripture verse by verse for literally 50 years in his church, Grace Community Church and of course you hear him on the radio as well, but he hasn't moved. He doesn't shift and he's a man he's a follow a fallible man.

He could know that he will be because he's 81 years old now is still doing the still fight the fight, but this is what I respect him so mushy his worldview.

His life is eternity. Everything is based on God's revelation in his word and he said a lot in there he he talked about America beating I we that we now hold the truth in unrighteousness is Romans one says despite the founding of our Christian principles that that is all rejected now, not by everyone but there is there is a general movement a large movement over our our society that doesn't want any part of those Christian values. We were founded upon Sica the Jerry Springer show location are familiar that show that was a daytime television show I think was back in the lobby.

The 80s maybe early 90s Jerry Springer was the host and he would typically bring in someone like a woman and a man who are having a problem in their marriage may be divorced and one was accusing the other of in infidelity or morality, then they bring in the adulterous person who is in the middle of their marriage in a fight would break out in mayhem what happened and they discuss the most you know, grotesque, immoral, perverse things on the program. That's what MacArthur is comparing America to at this point and if you read Romans one. He read a couple verses from it, but it goes on this. It's this is his digression and I would really encourage you to read up as it explains really what is taking place why what is taking place is taking place in our country's industry verses 18 through 32 for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men hears that this key phrase. Woodward starts out who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.

So there is a hiding, there is a suppressing there's a covering of the truth and in in the replacing it with unrighteousness. So it's it's the truth of God being exchanged for a lie and any good.

Paul was writing this letter to the Roman Christians he goes on to say that they those who suppress the truth, they they know about God. God is evident to them. His his invisible attributes, his eternal power. His divine nature.

They're all clearly seen, being honest understood through what is been made so there without excuse. He goes on to say that even though they they know God exist. They don't honor God or give him thanks but they're futile in their speculations are futile in their worldview and then what happens when you're futile in your worldview is your your heart was actually her heart is the that that the seed of your affections, your worldview, it's dark into the dark heart they profess to be wise as you can hear in the soundbites you play today.

These are all very captive captivating speakers from a certain standpoint they sound like they they know what they're talking about and they use the language to to mask unrighteousness and then they exchange the glory of God for for for the form of incorruptible man.

They worship man instead of the creator. And in verse 24 God gives them over this is that wrath of abandonment. This is a terrible kind of wrath, because if we don't have God's restraint in our own lives. If God does give this over to do what we want to do were going to go deeper and deeper into sin and that's what's taking place in our country God's given us over as a MacArthur saying that's what he believes I'd have to say agree with him. It's almost like America is a city member house sieges took place back in the day were that you have a walled city and NF for an invading army would come in this city would close all the doors and they did try to be safe inside their walled city from this foreign invasion then they bill the seed wrap on the outside and slowly over time. You know the people and says he would try to throw rocks or whatever they could to to kill the people who are trying to build the siege rat ramp so they could breach the walls and take over the city will work were under siege in this country as well were under siege all although Veit the siege ramp is not being built from the outside. The siege is taking place from the inside where you have a large percentage of our population who are just taking sledgehammers and hammering and breaking down the walls that got held up this this country from the beginning, and to be honest, I don't think there's much left of those wells is not going to take much much more for these walls to come crumbling down and then everything is going to to change in this country and I know that's not a very optimistic look at this country I buy could be wrong. It may be many years.

If you read Revelation, where the world is going. The world is going towards a globalist Dick a situation where there's a a 1 L of the world, a human leader and at attacking Christians in and in in Israel, and so forth. So were were going that direction. I just don't know when it just appears that America the strongest nation in the world which is kind of a restraint in the world from so many of the evil actors with their powerful economics are powerful military with her innovation with our our freedoms and our Constitution with the with the will of the freedom loving people on this with that is if that is just squelched down.

There's really nothing in the world from a standpoint to offset the rest of the evil in other places throughout the world. So that's what MacArthur said there is a wrath of abandonment taking place is country at this place. You said you gotta restrain sin through the conscience, the family, the police or law and order government into the church.

There's attack on all of those consciences don't listen to your conscience go with what you want to do the family disrupt the nuclear family is black as matter says define the police and by all means don't meet in churches will come back and talk more about the party of Romans one, the Democratic national convention. The Bible says that children should be raised in the discipline and instruction of the Lord is nothing more important than sitting, walking, talking and teaching your son or daughter to love and fear God, the church is swimming in children's resources, but it's also important to select ones that accurately represent God's word in the gospel and I store the Christian worldview.or we are intentional about offering resources to build a sound and strong faith in children, you will find several models for children Adam raccoon look serious and good news for little heart series.

We also have video and audio resources like video and Sugar Creek gang, browse the mom the Christian and then use them daily with the child. God has put in your life.

Thank you for listening for joining us today here on the Christian worldview radio program as we talk about the Democratic national convention which took place this past week will do the Republican national convention coming up after they take a whole there's recalling this program subtitling at the party of Romans one in light of that soundbite we played in the first segment from John MacArthur saying that this country is now, like that the Jerry Springer show. And it's a country that suppresses the truth in unrighteousness again, these are generalizations the you could sell when everyone, of course, not everyone does, that we would live in a country of 320 million, but now there is a a a big momentum. You see what's going on the streets and the government officials don't really do much about it. You see what's going on in educational system in in in a corporate American politics in higher education in the it it's it's it's given over to suppressing the truth in unrighteousness. That's a wrath of abandonment we we we don't want to get God to a van abandon us. We we want God to be convicting us in convicting our conscience and there's a is a pushback against all of that in this country. So I mentioned that the Democrat national committee platform and and that's nothing more than what a particular political party what the Democrat party either supports or opposes, so policies that either support or oppose understood or read about 15 of them that I took directly from the Democratic National Committee platform and there's different categories on you. The first category is bioethics and health issues. The Democrat national committee opposes all federal and state laws that prohibit or restrict abortion that the killing of unborn are partially born children noticed get that it it would be enough. If I read no more than that of the other 15 and then Arriba just consider that again. The Democrat party opposes all federal and state laws that prohibit or even restrict abortion. Abortion is the intentional killing. You could say murder of a human life in a mother's womb.

That's what this party and its candidates stand for. That's the first thing under bioethics and health issues. Number two supports the Democratic National Committee supports restoring taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America.

So not only do they oppose any federal, state law that prohibits or even restricts abortion.

But this support having you even if you oppose abortion through your taxpayer dollars funding the largest abortion provider in America number three, the Democratic National Committee supports medically accurate LGBT Q that's lesbian gay bisexual, transgender and queer.

Plus, inclusive age appropriate sex education. Okay for that to interpret that. That means that they want to have sex education for children in this country that promotes lesbian, Gay, bisexual, transgender is him and queer perverse sexuality. This is the Democratic National Committee platform number four it opposes conscience based exemptions that would allow medical providers, employers and others to refuse to provide contraceptives and abortifacients. What that means is that if you're a business owner and in this country and you're Christian and you oppose abortion. They are opposed to you being able to refuse because of your biblically informed conscience. Being able to refuse to provide in your health insurance plan to your employers abortifacients drugs that kill unborn children in the womb. There against that having a conscience based exemptions at the Democrat national committee. The last issue that pulled out of the bioethics and health issues for the Democratic National Committee platform as they oppose the lifetime ban on blood donation by men who have had sex with other men. That's a direct quote.

In other words, when men have sex with each other. There's a higher chance of the HIV virus. Of course, in the oppose the lifetime ban is apparently currently in place, edema, notice of blood donation by these men who have sex with each other.

This is from the Democratic National Committee platform next category as if that weren't enough, the creation creation care and environmental issues.

Interesting how they put creation care, because creation implies there is a create tour and they certainly do not believe in a create or otherwise they wouldn't be having all these other policies that defy that creator. Number one under creation care and environmental issues. The Democratic National Committee supports rejoining the Paris climate agreement, which is a very extreme environmental agreement that Pres. Trump got us out of number two supports eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2012 25 and supporting a national goal which achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions for all new buildings by 2030 other words, it's going completely away from from carbon-based energy in this country, so there's no more oil. There's no more coal, all those kind of things.

A firefighter of due for power plants and gasoline.

Everything else is completely transitioning our economy away from that.

Finally, under that category supports the creation of an environmental justice fund to make historic investments aimed at eliminating legacy pollution, which Dort disproportionately causes illness and premature death in communities of color. Low income communities and indigenous communities. So now you see how it's not only enough to it completely radically change our environmental practices, which I'm world for creation care, not this fort form of birth worship.

That really was what this is, but there is a there is a social justice element baked in to so many of the different policies of the Democratic National Committee you hear in the soundbites as well of the speakers at the Democrat national division, social justice, that with the way they define it it it sounds good is social and it's just what could be wrong with that, but it's really a form of Marxism.

That's divides the world between the oppressed and the oppressors and that the oppressors need to be toppled by the oppressed year hear more of that today discrimination racial issues is the next category the Democrat national committee supports ending discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity. Those the two. They want to add in, or disability. To that, to the Civil Rights Act they support establishing a national commission to quote examine the lasting economic effects of slavery, Jim Crow segregation and racially discriminatory federal policies on income, wealth, education, health and employment outcomes to pursue truth and promote racial healing and to study reparations that the paying of black people by the government for slavery. The offenses against them back in the slavery of sophists or for people who didn't commit these offenses today. They are to pay people who didn't weren't offended back when slavery was taking place out of the Democrats party stands for the support, allowing states to make their own decisions about recreation Rick recreational use of marijuana after surprise them. Ziprasidone does one make a federal mandate because they support drug use it in the population you get people all drugged up and not thinking clearly than they did the government can be more of your boss down the educational category. The Democratic National Committee supports universal preschool for all three and four-year-olds.

Now wonder why they would want that. Why would they want universal preschool for all three will because they can get you into their governmental educational system even earlier before you even have a chance to think clearly when you're three and four-year-old have the parents go off to work will take your children thank you very much and we will brainwash them according to our humanness ideology pretty clear they support K-12 instruction in civics and climate literacy.

Now here's were the codewords coming civics that's code word for what we've talked about Howard Zinn's version of American history that America is a terrible country we are founded illegitimately was founded on genocide were based completely and built by slavery and, therefore, that system needs to be toppled that's what they mean by civics. You have to know the how they use language to deceive and climate literacy.

That's another hug another codeword for radical environmentalism not not not stewardship of the earth which all Christians should support but using environmentalism to constrain and take peoples freedom away. They support or oppose this another one. Education Democratic National Committee opposes private school vouchers and allowing public funded scholarships to be used a private school so they want to continue the communistic based educational system in our country where you pay taxes, and the only place that your tax dollars can go is not to the school of your choice where you want to send your child that are attached that that taxpayer funding to you and think the years, your money, you can go spend that a public school private school Christian school or home school know they oppose all of that. All those vouchers it's only to be used in their government. Humanistic propagandist incubation corridors of public schools with a big Democrat national's committee supports for giving all undergraduate tuition related federal student debt for those earning less than $125,000.

So if you've gone to college if you taken out student loans and you don't make over hundred $25,000. Your debt should be paid for by your fellow taxpayers last two categories are read the Democrat national committee on LGBT issues lesbian Gay bisexual transgender supports passage of the equality act. Again, codeword equality, who could be against that.

But that would radically change Christian freedom in this country to be able to oppose or to stand against or stand for biblical morality. When we went over that in the previous show months ago on this program. They also support banning a converter quote conversion therapy practices. That's for homosexuals. Another was trying to have a a clinic that does counseling to to help people get out of homosexuality, they they support a ban on that number three they support allowing all transgender and non-binary people to identify and documents that reflect their gender identity will get to the last one, a religious liberty ran for the spring.

Find out were still working on holding a dinner event this year still working on some sort of the gathering which will update you in the coming weeks about even this fall. So stay tuned for some upcoming announcements from the Christian world you today in the program were talking about recapping the Democrat national convention which took place as last week and how is become the party of Romans chapter 1 where they don't see fit to acknowledge God any longer. God gives them over to a depraved mind reading from Romans one, now, to do those things which are not proper being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness and greed and evil and this is what that that party platform is as you as you read through haven't got to the last point yet whether it starts out in edge, never opposing all federal and state laws that prohibit or restrict abortion supporting taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood reducing completely reducing any carbon-based energy in our country going down to supporting preschool for universal preschool for three and four-year-olds looking into supporting the equality act LGBT issues applied banning of conversion therapy if for homosexuals and that's always the interesting one to me that you can't change your jet you can't change being a homosexual, but you can change your your your sex, your gender, it makes absolutely no sense at all. Of course there's no logic here and finally the one I want to get to that I would really should put a chill up with the spine of every single Christian listing today is the category of religious liberty. And here's what the Democrat net national committee says in their platform.

The Democratic National Committee opposes broad religious exemptions to allow business medical providers social servants social servants service agencies and others, to discriminate again another codeword discriminate who would be for discrimination what they mean by discrimination is a let's say that you have owner Christian business and you are a Christian photographer and you say you do not want to use your skills, your artistic skills who to participate in a homosexual so-called wedding and so you you denied servicing those two homosexuals will you.

The Democratic National Committee opposes you opposes any sort of broad religious religious exemptions to not participate. Business medical fries. Whatever, to not have to participate in things that offend their faith. So there against religious liberty. The red gas, religious liberty and for homosexual rights. Keep that in mind. Now, if you read all that you realize any any reasonable person would realize that John MacArthur is exactly accurate.

What he said about this country being in a situation of Romans one. Specifically, this particular political party which is pushing this agenda which I just read from their national platform. But the really disconcerting and disheartening thing is is that Christians broke professing Christians at lease believe are saying today prominent ones, ones that we once considered part of conservative evangelicalism are saying that you know don't be a one party voter Christians can be can vote for either party.

You can look at Luke Luke a look at this two ways it's a matter of conscience and you can vote either way and be in good conscience Jonathan Lehman replace soundbite from him.

He is the he is a works for nine marks ministries.

He is a edit editor for that particular ministry and trying to find his try to find his. As I hear his bio he's editorial director for nine marks nine marks is a collection of of church churches, the church network led by Mark endeavor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC. There are churches all over the country. There's a really well-known book called nine marks of a healthy church think it was called Jonathan Lehman works that organization.

He's an occasional lecture at Southeastern Baptist theological seminary teachers act as adjunctive Lee for the Southern Baptist theological seminary Southeastern Baptist theological seminary and reformed theological seminary, and oh by the way Mark endeavor Ligon Duncan others from this this theological world used to be speakers at the shepherd's conference with John MacArthur back in the day but there's been a split over the issue. Maybe not then maybe not spoken, but there's been a split.

They warned the shepherd's conference last year over the issue of social justice. That's what's been split over, and Jonathan Lehman was interviewed by Mark debt endeavor that the director of of nine marks ministries about voting and here's what he said about how Christians can really vote either way. Listen very carefully.

Maybe we'll even stop it as we go through to point out a couple things of what he is actually saying in this soundbite and so Christians going to culture questions gravity display and horticulture Christians going think that way. Satan is psyched the issue is issues division of the church and we don't trust each other, you're voting for them will. You must not care about justice and even those you love Jesus okay so that would be a you're voting for them that will be a Democrat so-called Christian Santa Republican Christian, you're voting for Republican, so you must not care about justice because that's what the Democrats are supposedly for the for the little guy. Remember, therefore helping people attacks. Redistributing wealth, they consider that Democrat so-called Christians will consider that to be charity that's never what Scripture says about charity. Charity comes from a willing person giving of themselves and and their resources that God has given not out of compulsion, but freely moving question your Christianity and rank division in the church.

Ligon I think this is where we have to allow for Christian freedom.

There he got allow for Christian freedom. In other words, Christians of good conscience can vote either way, Christians can vote for Republican or you can vote for that party and the candidates who support that list of platform of what they suppose to report that that goes directly shakes its fist in the face of God.

How can that be moving on and remember. Romans 14 and differently calibrated consciences effectively united around the gospel is not how I work out my decision on who or who not to vote for. So you can vote either way and be in good conscience I can understand.

For instance, how a person might not agree with that but I can understand how a person might decide will look here comes the rationalization of life, but in others been Republican pro-life will include candidates in the White House. The last number of decades, and yet the laws have been overturned. Meanwhile, I think this let's just say, thinking hypothetically the welfare policies these candidates is actually the number of real abortions in such and such a state. And actually the number of abortions down, so though they are pro-choice.

Anything that actually help the abortion issues as opposed to your Republican candidate. Okay so heat is created, the rationalization for Christians who who may not want to vote Republican. Thank you know what I'm pro-life but I support the welfare policies of the Democrat party. The redistribute redistribution of wealth and that is somehow going to reduce abortions more than the Republicans of Babel been able to do, though the presence of prisons are kings. They can't by divine fiat change the law of Roe V Wade that has to be done legally has to be done through majorities in Congress and so forth and so on. But there is the rationalization continuing might not personally agree with that argument.

I might say well it's wrong for reasons Z nonetheless. I can understand how a Christian in good conscience could make that argument, and therefore I'm going to leave space for that particular option for Christians, unlike possibly good to miss you. Other folks were pro-Nazi candidate. Okay, so now this this particular issue prior voting for a racially racist candidate that will be completely unacceptable. It's okay if you want to vote for Democrats because you think that there welfare policies were reduce abortion when it comes from voting for a candidate who is who is tinged with racism that will be impossible. This is the point of no reached Ku Klux Klan and the communist party candidate in China will restrict a bit more it's getting all parties are candidates that I think are beyond the pale as possible. We Shall Pl. in American history.

Were we we decide that this case were certain parties and I think some persons ready for life.

Nonetheless, I would say I think were still in a two-party system. Christians can good conscience make different kinds of arguments and we need to leave space for that last screenplay that last part. Again, I think were still in a two-party system will Christians can good conscience make different kinds of arguments and we need to leave space without last okay you think a Christian, a biblically sound born-again Christian can vote for that particular platform of the Democrat party that I just read that I don't see how a Christian amending. Of course they can. But I don't think they should at what when there is another option. That's not the biblically-based Christian party that God has put his finger on said this is the party of me absolutely not. But it's comparative so you need to know is it's comparative none of those things are read from the DNC platform.

Not one of them is in the Republican Party platform. You tell me that all that ungodliness in the Democrat National party platform is okay. Christians of good conscience can and should vote either way I you I don't see the biblical basis for that at all. That was Jonathan Lehman of nine marks ministries in this is that this is the real problem. By the way, is not shocking that unregenerate people support the Democrat National committee platform is that's not that's not shocking. The shocking thing is those who are professing Christians like Jonathan Lehman and those in nine marks and some within the Gospel coalition, and many others.try to get to in the last segment take this particular view that Christians of good conscience can and should vote either way. When there is a choice between rank unrighteousness suppressing the truth in unrighteousness and a much lesser version of that another party can vote either way.

The party of Romans chapter 1 don't forget to read that this week. Romans one verses 18 through 32 to describe what they're really party platform stance are thinking about Jonathan Lehman. The sound, but we just heard that Christians of good conscience can vote either way. Despite the fact that their party platform is is incredibly more ungodly than the Republican national party platform and in his issue of that the rationalization there that you you might come the conclusion that no welfare giving welfare to people who are poor or the black community and so was somehow going to reduce abortions, but the fact is has asked the taken place has the welfare state toward the the black community in this country was started way back when, 50, 60 years ago, has a really help reduce of no, there's a disproportionately high number of abortions taking place in some ways you could see maybe it's incentivized.

It even more so that that's a completely fallacious argument that he he tries to make there is justification for why you might want to vote for them. Secondly, look at the welfare has done to them.

Has it helped their the these cities where this takes place were these inner cities and black communities are over the last 60 years since that took place has all this welfare and government subsidies every thing else has it helped them in their run by the way by Democrats. Every single one of these big city inner-city areas is been run by Democrats for generations so that party is so good for black people for social justice. Why hasn't it worked in the last 60 years know it is hurt them more than far more than it is helped us get a couple of soundbites from the Democrat National convention will start with the darling of the Democratic National Committee which is Alexandria Cossey of Cortez. She's a congressperson from New York. She become very popular, very outspoken. She was given some speaking time short speaking time, but to listen to her short message at the Democrat National convention sounds like this is like it. The only thing she didn't say is the light workers of the world unite is straight out of the communism playbook is of Karl Marx wrote the speech for her, listen to this evening.

Thank you everyone here today and covering twice a better more just future for our country and our world.

Infidelity and gratitude to a mass People's movement working to establish 21st-century social, economic, and human rights. Again, codewords for Marxism and socialism. Don't be deceived, including guaranteed healthcare higher education with wages and labor rights for all people in the United States movement striving to recognize and prepare the wounds of racial injustice, colonization, misogyny and homophobia. Okay there it is again all oppressed versus the oppressor that this is perfect. Perfect example of where this party is today, that is this Marxism you listen to couched in the and the English language and to propel builders reimagine systems integration and foreign policy turned away from the violence and xenophobia of our past movement that realizes unsustainable brutality of an economy that rewards explosive inequalities of wealth and a few at the expense of long-term stability for the 90 that means we need to change a free market system which is developed incredible wealth for all people, by the way, in this country not just the wealthy is to have who have created this but also has given jobs other millions and millions of people. We need to transform that again a lot of code going on here for socialism, and who organized historic grassroots campaign to reclaim democracy. Okay, that's Alexandria Cossey of Cortez basically making a pitch for communism at the Democrat National convention.

The next speaker that were going to listen to is Pete Buddha judge remember him. He's the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

He ran for president. He is married to a so-called married to a man. He served in our military, and here's what he had to say proving again the party of Romans chapter 1, I believe in this country because America uniquely holds the promise of a place where everyone can belong. We know that for too many and for too long.

That promise has been denied. But we also know America is at its best when you make that circle of belonging wider just over 10 years ago I joined the military where firing me because of who I am wasn't just possible, it was policy now in 2020 is unlawful in America to fire someone because of who they are or who they love again. Codewords who they are and who they love, what is that mean who they are.

He's assuming that his homosexuality is who he is, is it's unchangeable and who I love, you should build the love for the mayor the person you love. You know, again, these are very effective arguments for for the for the unregenerate mind to easily get taken in by this because they have no standard for basis. Foundation for being able to push back against and say no this is not God's intent. This is bad for him.

Bad for society that we have the Pete man married to each other. Women married to each other not saying we should go out and shoot them.

That's not that's not the alternative. But when you promote this, it becomes the worldview of society gets taught in the school. Schools in the country only goes deeper into Romans one not only offends God, which is the worst thing we can do better hurts people it pulls them further away from God which every Christian should oppose the very ring on my finger wedding.

We celebrated here where I'm standing reflect how this country can change love makes my marriage real, but political courage made it possible, including that of Joe Biden who stepped out ahead even of this party when he said that marriage equality ought to be the law of the land. Marriage equality again codeword for marriage should not be defined as a marriage between one man and one woman is God defines that it should be whatever you want it to be whoever you love and right now as we can be male to male female to female that will change in time.

Now that the, the, the siege wall of the walls of that the country are crumbling it to become more and more like MacArthur's at the very beginning the show like the Jerry Springer show that we don't have much time left in the program they wanted to get to the main two candidates of Kemal Harris and Joe Biden himself. I'm not sure going to have time to do this solely my dues might continue this discussion next week because an important one that not only because it's important for us to understand what this party needs candidates actually stand for but is to be able to in our own minds understand the undermining taking place by so many in the professing Christian community that soundbite you heard earlier about how Christians of good conscience can vote either way I hope I hope it's clear yet they can vote either way, but just know that if you vote for the Democrat party and its candidates. You are voting for the more ungodly the more God rejecting of the choices again not to say the Republicans are the Christian party at all and make it very clear about that but comparatively there is no comparison get into this more next time. On the Christian review.

Thank you for joining us today. We do live in a changing and challenging word will world one that's filled with these codewords that we must discern, but in the midst of it all. Politics is not going to save America, there's one thing that can save America. Jesus Christ said I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father but through me. That is the only way that individuals can be saved believe in him today as your Savior and Lord and will talk to you next time on the Christian rule of you.
