This is our final program before election day on Tuesday, November 3, when the American people will choose which governing worldview they believe best for the near-future of our nation.

Will there be a deeper dive into Socialism, the worldview that replaces God and His Word with tried-and-failed big government political, social, and immoral policies based on sinful human reasoning, advocated by the Democratic Party?

Or will it be American Exceptionalism, the worldview of limited government, separation of powers, individual liberties, free market economics, and biblical morality based largely on a Christian worldview, advocated by the Republican Party?...

Final thoughts on election preview would be respect God or reject God of the topic will discuss today right here on the Christian worldview radio program were the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview.

Christians and to share the good news that all people can be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ and David.

We are hosting our website is the Christian worldview.org well, thank you for joining us for this final broadcast before the election practices. Our final program before election day on Tuesday, November 3, when the American people will choose which governing worldview. They believe best for the near future, at least of our nation will there be a deeper dive into socialism.

The worldview that replaces God in his word with tried and not tried-and-true tried and failed big government, political, social, and immoral.

Yes, in moral policies based on sinful human reasoning which is advocated largely by the Democrat party today or on the other hand, will be what I would describe as American exceptionalism, American nationalism, traditionalism, the worldview of limited government, separation of powers.

Individual liberties enshrined in our Constitution free market economics and more biblical morality based mainly largely on a Christian worldview advocated by the Republican Party, not never in my lifetime, at least has the division between our two main political parties been so great and yet the decision for the Christian voter has never really been more straightforward. The Democrats are party that basically rejects God will depart Republican Party. Generally, at least respects God to join us this weekend. As we discussed some final things to consider leading into the election in the first segment here.

I like to talk about keeping the right perspective gave her people say most people that this this election is the most important election of our lifetimes. And I think that actually is true.

We say that seemingly every election. The reason were saying that every election released the last let's say for five elections is because the mainstream of the Democratic Party is more left now than any point in our lifetime even more than one Pres. Barack Obama took office in 2008. In other words, the political parties are so far apart now.

You're such a huge gulf between them which whatever party is chosen to take powers going to take the country down to such greatly divergent paths almost going opposite directions, and for all the people who think all we need to we need a leader who can bring unity. There is no chance for unity it in America today because the viewpoints of the parties are so diametrically opposed.

So I really believe there there is an excess stencil threat to the traditional American way of life.

If the Democrats gain a lot of power in this particular election and gain more power going forward. There is even I think danger of of foreign intervention, foreign control of our country. What whether it's a takeover that's pretty extreme with our great military but you know militaries it is controlled by people and when bad people unwise ungodly people make bad decisions because her humanistic and sinful. Everything is on the table. Remember Nate and no nations forever kingdoms and empires rise and fall, I believe, are at a very critical turning point potentially in this country and if it's not now could app another four years another eight years. The left hates this country you have to yet it's hard to get your mind around this is a great nation but the left hates it, as it's currently operating and believes it will be better as you're seeing on the streets took to burn it down and remake it in their own image. This is why they tear down statues of historic American finger.

This is figure. This is why they slander Christopher Columbus in the founders and the Constitution, a sitting senator Sen. Ed Mark Markey. Not sure where he's from, but he said this this week about the, the, the original is in the idea of interpreting the Constitution as it was originally written. He said in a tweet original is him is racist. Original is him is sexist original is him is homophobic arisen. Regionalism is just a fancy word for discrimination. That's a sitting senator in the United States Senate essay saying basically if you interpret the Constitution according to the original intent of the Constitution.

That's racist, sexist, homophobic, and discriminatory. That's what they want to tear down the country so you have to understand how much they hate this country because of the Christian values is founded upon how intent. They are on remaking and according their own humanistic socialistic ideology so there was a response to that tweet from someone who agreed and the response was original is him doesn't exist. The law is meant to be interpreted under the Constitution.

If you interpret the way they would've 100 years ago. Then you'll get the same anti-woman anti-black anti-LGBT Q values that they had 100 years ago so I I I read that just to give you an idea of how the left thinks I think a lot of times Christians and conservatives can kind of think you know are all pretty close.

If we can, just, you know, just kind of find some common ground or what's for the common good. No no no, they are so diametrically opposed to the traditional American worldview. You can even understand it.

You can even hardly understand the way they think and how much they hate the way the country is currently operating how much they can't wait to be able to change all those things. What they're really saying is we need to remake the Constitution and when someone says that then everything that state because the Constitution is the guiding document for how our nation operates and gives us the limited government, separation of powers. Individualize all those things that have made America the greatest, most freest country prosperous charitable country in the history of the world.

That's because of the Constitution. The framework of our law and what they're saying is remake it. You can't interpreted the weight originally was. We need to redo it. Now that being said is a little prelude want to spend the rest of this segment saying in spite of this excess stencil threat this great division.

The true believer has really nothing to fear. No matter what happens in this election and Isaiah wrote in his book of the Old Testament you Israel was there were times of Israel history they would they would seek the Lord there be blessing with her many times when they would go their own way and worship false gods and there be God would allow foreign ungodly nations to take them over and oppress them and they'd have famine impact all kinds of negative things would happen. God was using these things a try to draw them back to to repentance and to follow him and in the passage nods. Isaiah 40 I think is a good one for Christians to keep in our minds as we go into the selection on on Tuesday so we keep things in perspective of God's perspective sows want to read a few paragraphs out of that chapter of Isaiah 40 starting in verse six, a voice says callout. Then he answered, what shall I call out and the prophet says all flesh is grass in all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the Lord blows upon it.

The people are indeed grass.

The grass withers, the flower fades with the word of our God stands forever.

In other words, this US lot election. Whoever is elected president is not going to change the word of God. No matter what the left tries to do second and change God or his word or his plans.

Verse 10 behold, the Lord God will come with might with his arm ruling for him, behold his compensation is with him and his reward before him like a shepherd. He will tend his flock in his arm.

He will gather the lambs and carry them in the fold of his robe he will gently lead near the nursing use.

In other words, whatever happens in the election. Everyone will Democrat Republican anywhere in between. Everyone is still accountable to God's just judgment. Our political affiliation doesn't matter before God from a standpoint of were not judged on our political affiliation.

We are judged based on our works. What we have done with God's offer had have we have we accepted received by faith God's offer to forgive our sins, or are we going to try to go some other way our own way to try to develop some form of works righteousness to be right with God. God rejects that, but he accepts the one who in repentance and faith accepts his offer on his terms of reconciliation verse 12, who was measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and measured the heavens with a spam and calculated the dust of the earth with the measure and weighed the mountains and a balance in the hills in a pair of scales who has directed the Spirit. The Holy Spirit of the Lord, or as his counselor has informed him, with whom did God consultant who gave him understanding and who taught him in the path of justice, and taught him knowledge informed him of the way of understanding their all rhetorical questions as no one known as taught got anything God is not wringing his hands in heaven right now single. I hope they do, they elect Donald Trump or someone I know he's not doing that he's not powerless.

He's actually going to ordain exactly what will happen in this coming election. He will cause it is all either going to give America over to the. The sinful desires that that though the worse fallen desires of this country for his purposes. Or he's not.

He's going ordain you not wringing his hands. Verse 15 behold, the nations of the world are like a drop from a bucket and are regarded as a spec of dust on the scales.

Behold, God lifts up the islands like fine dust that you lift up sand in your hand. Even Lebanon is not enough to Bernard's animals enough for a burnt offering all the nations are is nothing before him. They are regarded by him as less than nothing in meaningless does not put America in perspective, we have the greatest nation, the most powerful prosperous nation in the history of the world and it's like a speck of dust on the scales is a drop in the bucket to God. Do you not know goes on in verse 21. Have you not heard has not been declared to you from the beginning.

Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth. It is he who sits above the circle of the earth and its inhabitants us were like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens, God does like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to live in it. Is he God who reduces rulers to nothing. Who makes the judges of the earth meaningless scarcely have they been planted scarcely have they been sown scarcely has their stock taken root in the earth, but he merely God merely blows on them and they wither in the storm carries them away like stubble, to whom then will you compare me. God says that I should be his equal, says the holy one. Raise your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the one who brings out their multitude by number, he calls them all by name because of his greatness. The greatness of his might and the strength of his power. Not one of them is missing that this should remind us who is in control. Do you not know have you not heard the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth that he does not become weary or tired. His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives strength to the weary and to the one who lacks might he increases power though young men grow weary and tired and vigorous young men stumble badly. Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired they will walk and not become weary. If you are listing today and you are a true follower of Christ, God will be your strength. Whatever comes our way. After this election, United States of America is a lot more to come to today in the Christian worldview. Hope you'll stay tuned.

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 gospel and I store Christian worldview.org we are intentional about offering resources to build a sound and strong faith in children, you will find several models for children and raccoons look serious and good news for little heart series. We also have video and audio resources like PO and Sugarcreek gang browse the mall. The Christian worldview.org and then use them daily with the child of God is put in your life. That's not Christian worldview.thanks for joining us today on the Christian worldview radio program on David, we host our web diet is the Christian worldview.org were going over some final thoughts before the election coming up on Tuesday. Will it be respecting God or reject God as he went over the first thing we talked about it for your Christian if you're a true follower of Christ. God is guaranteed no matter what kind of trials and tribulations come our way and that doesn't mean you won't have them you absolutely absolutely will have them think about the apostle Paul what he went through in life but God was his strength.

You have comfort in perspective and hope in the midst of it in the midst of our fallen world, and so we read that passage from Isaiah 40 because God is in control of the affairs of our world.

He's in control of the selection he is he is causing his prophetic plan for the world to unfold right before our eyes.

There is nothing anyone can do to stop it or slow it down. He is going to put the party in power. He wants for his purposes may be for our discipline. It may before America's destruction is hard to say that they may before our repentance are, or may before blessing, but it's always going to be ultimately for his glory. But let's be clear. Revelation it is very clear that the world is going to get to at some point in history, and no others can be sooner or later it's going to begin. It's going to get to a terrible this antichrist led globalized unified world ruled dystopian planet world America is and mentioned that dicey anywhere in the Bible.

I do know what that means as far as what the future of this country is prophetically but is not mentioned, at least clearly in Scripture may be part of that one world final Confederation. II don't know. So it is not a matter of if, though the world is going to get to that point. But when God is bringing it to that point because then he's going to send his son back and he's going to judge the world and it doesn't mean that we should sit idle and welcome it and just be passive to this and do nothing. In the meantime but it is coming, and the signs are really everywhere.

But whatever happens, Christians were still the same mandate.

The great commission is still the great commission that we are to to go make disciples of the nations to evangelize to disciple to to live for righteousness and stand for righteousness in our own lives and in our in and in the country were to oppose evil there are to be ambassadors represent Christ. And if that doesn't matter. No matter what the pool the political situation is were citizens of heaven, but were still citizens of America and were thankful to God for what this country has been and is but that could change again nations aren't forever. We may be very sad about the country. We may be very sad about our people that they believe so many lies are contrary to the truth of God, but remember we still have the good news for us and for them. That's what God's given us.

That's a great hope now as we talked about ruling the program today that this election is really about. You could divide into two different camps. It is going to be about American exceptionalism traditionalism, let's say American nationalism, or it can be a Marxist socialism. And that's not meant to, you know, try to be exaggerate.

That's really what the Democrat party believe today's a Marxist socialism. The former American exceptionalism is mainly based on respecting others a respect for God. There well Marxist socialism is based on rejecting God.

It's it's man's best attempt to order government society. In his own fallen worldview. Socialism is is a big is big government control over every aspect of life and we arty have some socialism in our country. Let's be honest, our educational system is socialist. The fact that you pay taxes, coerced taxes out of you, and that money can only go into a federally controlled public educational system that that's a socialist worldview plan is is the educational system. America yes you can if you want you can pay the homeschooler send your child to a public or private school, but basically we have a socialistic government run federally controlled educational system, the welfare state is another. Another good example of how we have tenants of socialism and Arst account. Our country now. Well, there could be a very minimal safety net believe a very very gigantic six safety net in this country, welfare state, a redistribution of of those who produce to those who don't produce. That's a L element of socialism. We have a a very entrenched secular, atheistic separation of church and state mentality in government that has led to un-biblical morality.

It's leads to the redefinition of marriage, it leads to taxpayer-funded abortion. It will lead even more to euthanasia. It has led and will lead to more Christian marginalization and persecution. These are all elements of socialism and all the things being proposed by the Democratic Party government run funded healthcare, a government guaranteed income.

The green new deal and radical environmentalism, a globalism focus on globalism which really to do that, then you have no borders. You you disallow open immigration so we do have already ever. Some people say this, we developments of socialism. Yes, we do. There are but the point is they want more.

They want us to go fully into socialism and maybe eventually into calming is not read article this week by Audrey Conklin's you are an article for for Fox News and she said it was just it was just a reporting article about the victims of communism Memorial fund foundation, which was does a annual poll assessing Americans attitudes toward socialism the victor.

It's called the VOC the victims of communism Executive Director Marion Smith attributes this trend trend as well as another national polls to a failure of Americans at American educational institutions, definitional misunderstandings and a double standard in media and on social media.

She says we are seeing the high watermark politically of socialism and Marxism in the US.

Never before in history has the US seen positive opinions of these ideologies. To the extent that were seen today. That's just a fact. She says that's quite a statement.

Never before have we seen such positive viewpoints on socialism and Marxism goes on the say support support for progressive self identified democratic socialist politicians, including former 2020 presents a candid Bernie Sanders and represented Alexander Causey of Cortez has increased among young voters, the national black lives matter group part of a political and social movement against racism and police violence ostensibly that many American citizens and corporations have endorsed was cofounded by Patrice colors and Alisha Garces who have called themselves, trademarks us and owe Paul to Mattie who observed Venezuela's 2015 election at the invitation of that socialist government to Mattie, one of the founders of black lives matter was swarmed by government critics during the election on Twitter after posting what the what the relief posting about the relief she felt being quote in a place where there is intelligent political discourse unquote the founders of black lives matter said about the totally failed just corrupt socialist oppressed country and have a Venezuela There is also been a decrease in the number of young Americans who believe angles Frederick Engels and Karl Marx their Communist manifesto secure something this believe it secures liberty better than the Declaration of Independence quote you combine the lack of moral reckoning about the legacy of communism with a failure of education to teach basic 20th century history about socialism and you add on a normalization of the term socialism of Marxist rhetoric and that leads to a dangerous normalization of socialism as a path forward. This is the victim of victims of communism organization foundation writing this particular piece so the reason again. The reason the country is so divided right now is because of the Democratic Party has moved so far to the left another to tell you that it's trumps fault. It is rhetoric. It's everything else they blame Trump for everything, but trumps policies are are actually very mainstream conservative. They're not anything that's unusual in American history for conservatives.

When do you think the left would like Trump if he did the exact same person of policies but had the personality of Mike pence. No, they would hate him. Maybe not quite as much because Trump has a way of sticking in their eye as he is doing these conservative policies of the good makes it a little more divided. But now they would hate of Mike pence just as much of you is doing the same policy because it's a worldview divide Democrats to say how far they've gone left there pushing policies on America that are completely unheard of in our history where is trumpet sort of a mainstream conservative, not a mainstream public as he's more conservative than that I think too many people surprise, but he is the same conservative ideology that's been throughout most of American history. Where is the Democrat party has gone so far the office unheard of in our history we think about this. They redefined the God's institution of marriage, during the Obama term is never done in human history.

They they moved us down the road, which then moved us down the road toward full integration and advocacy of homosexuality.

Now, transgender is him never done in human history and more recently we now see that critical race theory is now mainstream in this country that America is founded by racists is systemically racist.

We need to defund the police we need to expand the number of people on the Supreme Court's we can have a liberal majority. We need to give statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico need to abolish the electoral college in abolish the fossil fuel industry to Biden said in the last debate we need to have a universal bake it be basic in income.

I mean, this is radical leftism socialism godless okay it's not that the Republican Party is gone way to the right and the Democrats are going where the left is at the Democrat party has gone. Just wait until after the golf is so extreme now that there can be no unity. That's why there's so much at stake.

This is far more by the way this election is far more than present Trump versus VP Biden. This is the most important contest because that holds the most power but it's because the political platforms and political ideologies are so far apart now and that's what makes the ramifications of this election so important will come back and talk more in this election preview on the Christian worldview. After this, David. We hear host of the Christian worldview for over 15 years.

That is really what's on the ballot coming up here in our national election come in. Many people already voted, but that's really the question one party generally respects God. The Republican Party still does that. While the Democrat party completely almost completely rejects God.

I believe, is look at the party platform for the programs on this leading up to the election and just look through it with the what policies it supports were discussing this today and we we just went over in the last segment why they're such a great division because the party platforms are so far apart the policies they want to enact are so far apart. Trump is traditionally conservative.

That's pretty mainstream conservative over the many, many decades of this country's doing basically the same things in a limited government and economic prosperity in reducing taxes and things like this. While the, the Democrat party has moved so far to the left and so there's no there's no chance for unity or common ground when you have completely different objectives and the fact that VP Biden former Price, VP Biden chose, what Harris who is the most liberal member of the Senate. She's in the U.S. Senate. Junior senator from California just shows you that she's she's even considered to be more liberal than Bernie Sanders. The Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders MFS she was asked about this in assembly was a 60 minutes interview, Nora Ord O'Donnell asked her this about her.

Her liberal leanings. Look how she responds very different in the policies that you've supported in the past are considered the most liberal United States Sen. I somebody said that in that actions Mike pence on the debates, nonpartisan gum track has rated you as the most liberal senator. You supported the green new deal. You supported Medicare for all you've supported legalizing marijuana. Joe Biden doesn't support those things. So are you bring the policies those progressive policies that you supported a senator into a Biden administration very, very good question. If you could see the video of this, you would see the look on, let Harris his face is like I can't even believe you are asking me this?

You're not supposed to ask me a question like this notice.

Watch the dodges going forth here when I will do and I promise you this, and this is what Joe wants me to do this was part of idea. I will always share with him my lived experience as it relates to any issue there is a code word lived experience as as if you lived experience is should be a basis for truth, that we confront Promised Joe that I will give him that perspective and always be honest with him and is that any socialist or progressive perspective. Now it is the perspective of a woman who grew up eight who comes the identity politics a black child in America who was also a prosecutor who also has a mother who arrived at the age of 19 from India who also you know like hip-hop what you want enough to give you an opportunity to address this because the Republican national convention present.

Trump made the case that Joe bindings can be nothing more than a Trojan horse for socialist policies for the left wing of the Democratic Party are you going to push those policies when you're VP I she's asked like three times.

She's not getting any kind of answer black society are you going to push those policies when you're VP I am not going to be confined to Donald Trump's definition of who I or anybody else's.

And I think Americans learned that that would be a mistake to just just about not because you have fought for Medicare for all, not something that Joe Biden supports.

If you become vice president would you say to a president lying you know what let's we should really be pushing for Medicare for all, not a public option. That's just not gonna do it. That's not my value.

I would not have joined the ticket if I didn't support the jealous proposing and so our plan includes expanding on everything that Joe together with Pres. Obama created with the affordable care act. By contrast, Donald Trump will going to the attack on down Trump.

Basically she she's socialist okay just she doesn't want to use that term about herself because she knows has negative cons connotations, but she is and so all these other folks like Bernie Sanders and and and Elizabeth Warren, who probably likely part of a Biden Harris cabinet people like that running the country meets its apps just just listening to that some it's it's it's unthinkable that, let Harris with her quote lived experience in her socialist viewpoints could be president of this country if something were to happen to Joe Biden. He gets sick and dies or he gets assassinated or he resigns or whatever happens, he becomes meant mentally incapacitated chemo to her as president of this country with her leftist worldview and the rest of the people in the cabinet and this is why to me whenever I see a black lives matter, sign in someone's yard.

I just shake my head as it while you perk promoting a Marxist organization which seeks to end to disrupt the nuclear family coming there there there advocating for the destruction of the fundamental building block of this country mean and then and then what makes even more incomprehensible.

Beyond that, one thing because it probably on save the probably just blind you're dead in your trespasses and sins, and you just can't see it.

We get it you scales on your eyes, but what's even more incomprehensible than that is seeing, hearing, reading professing Christians say they're going to vote for this party. When there other options whether it's Republican or or third-party whatever to say you're going to choose. This party, the Democratic Party, when there other options that are far less antithetical to a Christian worldview is is really beyond me. Now, on the other hand, you have Republican party in Trump who believe in American traditionalism exceptionalism American nationalism. Not quite sure what the best word fortis and they're not the Christian party. By the way, they are not going to save America spiritually.

End of sentence but they will retain a country that our founders originally intended. So Christians can worship freely. And that's the whole reason the Pilgrims and Puritans came here, but I can try to limit or restrict or abolish your ability to have free worship of God or the freedom of speech, or the freedom to have the Second Amendment to defend yourself there there and they're not there going to restrict or potentially even overturn abortion as as opposed to having taxpayers funded. This is the American genocide. I know there how you can say what Trump hasn't done enough.

He is over why think is more difficult than that.

But at least you're not trying to expand it as this is not a sacrament, literately sacrament to the Democrat party to dismember and suck out babies from a woman's womb to put it graphically know they still believe Republicans doing limited government, the separation of powers. Because of this sin nature of man.

Individual liberties of freedom of speech and religion, Second Amendment, healthcare, education, whatnot they do spend too much for for sure were too much in debt. I have no idea how that's all gonna work out someday, but they believe in economic opportunity versus redistribution is him. They want control immigration versus having the country overrun they want law and order, rather than just like looking the other way or trying to call the violence on the streets of peaceful protests. They believe the national defense, strengthen yourself, knowing your threats in the world want take away our country.

Basically they follow the biblical mandate of Romans 13. For rulers are not a cause for fear for good behavior, but for evil behavior. Do you want to have no fear of authority do what is good and you will have praise from the same fortis, a servant of God to you for good for you.

Do what is evil, be afraid, for does not bear the sword for nothing for it is a servant of God and avenger who brings wrath and the one who practices evil, the Democrat party completely has that flipped you do what is good.

You abide by your conscience and your business, your Christian conscience you're kissing Christian convictions and you can be prosecuted for not servicing eggs: quote same-sex wedding there there there calling what is good, evil, where is that the GOP still sees that it's that it's a good thing to have religious liberty just a huge, huge, diametrically opposed difference. The core God-given mandate for government is basically to punish evil that's really it just to create a stable society to punish evil punished those who would harm people in society and the Democratic Party today. You can just seat on the streets. They fail on this most basic God-given government duty solicit transition to this issue of of Christians trying to create this moral equivalency between the parties. Today, when it's so obvious how different and how diametrically opposed to these party or one party read basically rejects God, the other party generally. Like I say, their party of Christians are party of God with generally still have respect for God know you read this article last week from John Piper.

The well-known evangelical pastor and writer highly respected, and so forth. Basically saying that he doesn't get Walden industry what he wrote. Actually, this is a long-overdue article attempting to explain why I remain so baffled that so many Christians consider the scent that the sins of unrepentant sexual immorality, unrepentant boastfulness, unrepentant vulgarity, unrepentant infectiousness and the like to be toxic to be only toxic for a nation while policies that endorse baby killing sex switching freedom, limiting and socialist overreach are viewed as deadly. These mean he was referring to the first half that paragraph is referring to Donald Trump's unrepentant, sexually immoral and boastful and vulgar as as if Joe Biden, Harris or not.

By the way, okay he's saying is just as deadly that that those qualities of the leaders person.

His personal character are just as deadly as baby killing abortion.

Transgender is him limiting your your your your individual liberties and socialistic overreach.

So was very glad this week.

I'm looking to going to the rest of Piper's comment on time but after this next break to go into the response from Wayne Gruden wrote a response. He said a respectful response to my friend John Piper about voting for Trump riddim is a professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix seminary in Arizona at this break were to read just a couple portions of this article that completely dismantles this moral equivalency. Then John Piper wrote in his column that's coming up in the Christian worldview who is George Soros and what does he believe, are you religious believe in God know Soros told independent newspaper in Great Britain. It is a sort of disease. When you consider yourself some kind of God, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it all.

Will that be respect to God or it will be reject God which party is going to be chosen part is that which ideology does the American people want for our future. That's really what the decision is working to find out, likely on Tuesday. Maybe not. Maybe it's getting your protracted accounting who knows what's what's gonna happen your everything's all bets are off this year in 2020, but was reading before the break. This article by John Piper and also we both of these articles like to really encourage you not have time.

In one segment to go over both of them, but we have them both likely of John Piper's article and also Wayne Gruden's article basically Gruden rights. This, he said I would sorry belly. He sent his column is a good friend, a child, Piper. He sent his column to John Piper before it was posted on the Christian Post but succumbed pretty pretty nice guy. He said I would summarize Don Dr. Piper's argument as follows number one the personal sins of a leader can be as harmful to persons intonations as morally evil laws to summarizing Piper's arguments. Christians communicate a falsehood. When we act as if policies and laws are more precious than a certain kind of person number three the horrible sin of pride leads people to other sins, including defending abortion and therefore voting for a clearly boastful candidate like Trump might also be indirectly supporting abortion. Number four. Voting for either candidate would compromise a person's Christian witness. My reply Gruden rights you need to read the article for yourself.

It's a complete and utter takedown of what John Piper wrote number one.

He says there is a difference between the personal influence of a leaders example which may be rejected and laws that compel obedience. Piper's argument fails to recognize that people can decide not to imitate the sins of a leader, but they cannot do that with laws with policies, laws require obedience, but millions of people have seen and decided not to imitate Trump's character flaws. The most frequent, and I hear from trump supporters something like I don't like his insulting tweets or his personality, but I'm supporting them anyway because he is brought sub about good laws and policies. Americans are perfectly free to say Trump's boastfulness offends me. I don't want to act that way myself. But if laws are passed and upheld by the courts that enforce the LGBT Q agenda, no creative professional like a cake direct decorator photographer floors will be free to say I believe same-sex marriage is morally long.

I won't use my artistic talent. The decorated cake celebrating same-sex marriage no high school girl be free to say I won't undress and change my clothes for a gym class because there are boys in the locker room will claim to be girls, no Christian adoption agency will be free to say we will not place children with same-sex couples.

If Democrats gain control of our government and the Supreme Court and enact their desire policies. No Christian taxpayer will be free to say I refuse to pay that portion of my taxes that the government is using to pay for abortions. No business owner will be free to say I will not buy medical insurance for my employees that pays for abortion and sex change surgeries.

They will only be two choices violate your conscience or else be driven to bankruptcy or go to jail.

That pretty much puts in perspective doesn't.

In other words, yet we don't know why never have ever and not know Christians are respected ever stood up for the sins of Donald Trump's personal sins that we spoke out against them, but we are saying that the policies of Donald Trump are far better than the not just the sinful policies of the Democratic Party, but the wicked policies there's a difference.

There's a difference between sinfulness and wickedness.

Both candidates running for president. Our sins are sinners were all sinners office and involuntarily got the glory of God. I believe down Trump is a sinner but at least he trying to do somewhat God honoring policies well. Joe Biden is a sinner who's trying to implement that with the Democratic Party wicked policies and if you really want to compare character what you frame the two candidates out. Trump is always given. The one who is that the lesser character he's yet he's a sinner like the rest.

Rosie Briggs exaggerates he's narcissistic. He reviles but so is Biden. He breaks exaggerates and he's narcissistic and reviles and then he forces his wicked policies and the Democratic policies on us as well. He's been involved in unrepentant sexual morality.

He was accused by his wife's ex-husband of adultery. He's been accused of sexual harassment Tara Reid back in 2020 of this year from a previous time in 1993 will go on the whole thing done of time. We he's been unrepentant factious message on tighter. Piper writes about he's criticizing reviling voters who don't agree with them and also the scandal that hasn't even seen the light of day that probably most of you haven't even heard about because it been a complete blackout of the press is Benny unrepentant lying and corruption with his families involved in involvement in business in Ukraine and China frankly just on that point alone. He should be disqualified from being present because he so compromised by one of our enemies China so don't don't don't lease. Don't try to tell me about you know Joe Biden is this this great moral character and he's gonna bring unity and dignity back to the, the Oval Office, I don't think so.

Not not even close. So John Piper and many other professing evangelical such as Tim Keller.

They may be sincere and they can they're entitled to their own opinions but their moral equivalency reasonings about kind of both parties.

You'll have equal backbiting of different bad things, but you know there's really Christians can be associated with either of them is not only I believe wrong, but it really opens the door for Christians to vote for the party of Romans one, the party that has rejected God, and in support of their not just sinful policies but there wicked policies so what we do.

I have no idea which party is going to take power had on Tuesday, who's going to become president. Which party will take power. Some say Trump sky when the landside pole say the blinds get ON Acura posters. I just saw on TV last. I think Biden is going. So what are we as Christians to do.

We we obey what first Timothy chapter 2 says. First of all, then all rights I urge that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made in behalf of all people for kings and all who are in authority asked both Republicans and Democrats.

By the way, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, for there is one God and one mediator also between God and mankind, the man Jesus Christ, who gave himself as a ransom for all the testimony given at the proper time we need to pray, we need to trust God not worry God is in control even if America votes for the God reject hers over the God we specters God will work it together for his glory, his purpose and his plans for the world and will even be for our good. Somehow hard to even see how that would be.

But God is higher thoughts and higher plans and we have reduced was pray for a country Lord we are going into a very very important election that has a incredibly diametrically opposed directions for a country, but we know you are in control. We you know you're going to ordain the outcome. We trust you for whatever the outcome, and we embrace our calling and our responsibility as believers to pursue the great commission. No matter what happens in this country knowing that you will support us, strengthen us in whatever happens coming for.

We pray for our nation are present in our vice president. All our leaders that those who reject you would be convicted and you bring them to saving faith and that those who honor you and respect you with their person and policies will be blessed. We pray this and commit this all to the one name that's above every name, Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank you for joining us today on the Christian worldview will have much to talk about next week.
