If You Vote for Obama, You Are Going to Hell!


















Gotta love Janet Porter. In her latest article to WorldNetDaily, she warns all Christians who plan to vote for Barack Obama that they should also plan on a one way trip straight to hell.

She doesn't mean a collapsed economy, or increased socialism or any other such hyperbole. She literally means hell. As in fire and brimstone.

Some extracts:

To all those who name the name of Christ who plan to willfully disobey Him by voting for Obama, take warning. Not only is our nation in grave danger, according to the Word of God, so are you ... [T]his election is not about race. It's not about the economy. It's about obeying God.

Be forewarned: If you willfully disobey God on life and marriage because of race or false hope for the economy, you will usher in the kind of change that brought the Soviet Union to collapse.

Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (Matthew 7:21-23)


For Porter, the choice is a simple one: McCain equals heaven and Obama equals hell.

To those who call themselves by the name of Christ who ignore what God says about life and marriage, who and are clinging to a fantasy of economic gain, think again ... Then obey Him in the voting booth and out of it. If not, do us all a favor and quit calling yourself a Christian.

It's not a total loss. I have it on good authority that they have great BBQ in hell!

I love how she chose to use a Biblical verse (Mark 10:7) in which Jesus is denouncing divorce as proof gay marriage is an abomination in the eyes of God.

Even I could come up with better scriptural support than that.

Oh and when she quotes the scripture listing things God hates, she conveniently ignores:
-A lying tongue
-And one who sows discord among brethren.

Maybe its just me, but telling the Christian community you either vote for McCain or go to hell falls neatly in both of those categories.

But seeing as the general population of the christian community is known for dismissing some sins(divorce any one?)and obsessing over others, this is not really a surprise.

What Kind of Change?

Once upon a time, there was a charismatic and eloquent young leader who decided his nation needed a change and that he was the one to implement it. The people were receptive and ready for change.

He spoke passionately when denouncing the existing system and the media loved him. Nobody questioned what he believed in or who his friends were. He would help the poor and bring free medical care and education to all. He would bring justice and equality. He said I am for hope and change, and I will bring you both. Few people bothered to ask about the change, and by the time the executioner’s guns went silent, all personal firearms had been confiscated, along with most personal freedoms.

When everyone was finally equal, they were (and are) equally poor, hungry and miserable. Their free education was (and is) all but worthless. Their free and universal health care was (and remains) a travesty. When the change was fully implemented, the country had been reduced to Third World status. More than a million people fled in small boats and rafts.

The charismatic young leader was Fidel Castro; the nation is Cuba.

The citizens of the United States would never fall for a charismatic, eloquent young leader who promises hope and change without asking, “what kind of change, and how much will it cost us?” – would we?

Wake up America before it is too late!

The Focus on the Family stuff made me realize how susceptible people are to fallacious and far fetched argumentation; this type of analysis makes me frustrated and sad.

It is not heretical to think that killing infant children is an action that leads down the road to hell. It is totally orthodox to call homosexuality a sinful lifestyle and want to restrict the role of homosexuals in society.

You can even hold Obama in contempt for that old comment he made in San Fransisco about "clinging to guns and religion" or to acknowledge that the Saul Alinsky school of radicals and community organizers just doesn't realize the importance of God's word and that there is nothing more offensive than to belittle someones belief in a good God, an evil Satan, and a true Bible.

However, there are good reasons to vote for Obama. His administration would probably have more intelligent people than a Republican administration. He seems to have the charisma to mobilize people to carry out policy initiatives. The vast majority of these policies would probably make America a better place. John McCain definitely isn't a saint, and Palin seems to have the current events knowledge of many of the eighth graders that I teach.

Perhaps a better topic for an article would be, "Will Obama go to hell if he uses his platform to appoint people in favor of killing babies, empower homosexuals, and belittle and marginalize biblical convictions?"

I like the new title you propose, and he might...

But, it's not up to me and that's what I have to keep reminding myself of. In the end, it doesn't matter what happens on this planet. I won't be an eternal citizen here, Praise God because He's still in control and He will reward His faithful.

Another thought...

So, because I believe that people should be able to donate to whatever (accountable) charitable organization that they want, that promotes their belief systems; instead of just allowing the government to take more money from us in the form of "taxes" and then give it to liberal, unaccountable organizations (that do whatever they want with the $$) that makes me a racist, close-minded, horrible, conservative Christian.

I see, it's ok for heathens, pagans, nominal christians and others to vicariously give to gov't sponsored organizations/ charities through their taxes and "feel good about it" because they are doing their part. (They have too... It doesn't mean as much, and I don't want to support those organizations that don't promote accountability). So let me keep more of my money and I'll still help.

When I was young and immature, I wondered why the mission that my step-dad (pastor) preaches at once or twice a month required the homeless guys to hear a Christian Gospel message before they fed them. Now I know, it's 2-fold. They want people to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, and they don't want their $$ to be wasted on an organization that isn't promoting what they believe and attempting to hold the people accountable for what is being invested in their lives.

I am a realist however that probably only 20%-30% of those guys/ families ever gets off of the streets completely and into a good job, but that's a much higher percentage than most of the secular ones that don't have any requirements at all for accepting their free handouts/ services.

From here forward let it be known that all christians who feel good that their tax dollars are given to gov't sponsored organizations and charities are to be labeled as "nominal christians".

"Now I know, it's 2-fold. They want people to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, and they don't want their $$ to be wasted on an organization that isn't promoting what they believe and attempting to hold the people accountable for what is being invested in their lives."

Don't forget #3: Because many christians long ago lost faith that God could reach out to people through their actions alone.

Only ever said by those who think truth is only ever on their side at all times.

Response to grinth's statement of:
"From here forward let it be known that all christians who feel good that their tax dollars are vicariously given to gov't sponsored organizations and charities are to be labeled as "nominal christians". "


Maybe, that's between you and God; only he can judge your heart. The only thing people can see/ hear is your fruit. I know that in the Bible Jesus said "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's..." when he was speaking about tithing. If you consider yourself a Christian and don't ever give to your church or any other accountable charitable organization out of the abundance that God has given you, then I think possibly you should re-evaluate your financial priorities.
