“I have alternately been called an Aristocrat and a Democrat. I am neither. I am a Christocrat.” -Benjamin Rush -Signer of The Declaration of Independence
On Wednesday, I did a show with Pastor Greg Locke from Mount Juliet, Tennessee.
I personally think Greg is a cool guy and that he has done good things on behalf of the Church in America. However, where he got my attention was when I saw his video on social media platforms highlighting his unconditional support of the president, regardless of what he has done (Maybe he did not know). It needed to be corrected (2 Timothy 3:16) so, I decided to bring him on the show.
One thing throughout the show that I wanted to highlight is that our rights come from God (2 Corinthians 3:17) and that law under God is the standard, not our favorite politicians (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 25:1).
We are, in fact, to judge our representatives, in our representative government, by their fruit that they bear (Matthew 7:16) and on this radio show, I did just that. I brought forth their fruit.
I kept hearing from Greg (Unbeknownst to him I hope), who was feebly attempting to justify the unjustifiable in defending the president that he is a baby Christian. OK, let’s put that in the light of Scripture.
I cannot find in Scripture where a baby Christian becomes the standard (John 14:6), nor can I find where they are to be excused from responsibility when it comes to their choices and their actions (Deuteronomy 30:19).
What/ do they have some special mercy from the Lord to continually bring forth corrupt fruit and leave a trail of destruction behind themselves? No, in fact, just the opposite is to be the case!
Then again, we must remember that the president has never asked for forgiveness, which explains the corrupt fruit, and explains, THANKS TO THE MODERN GOSPEL (Galatians 1:8), that he has never repented. Isn’t that the scriptural prerequisite in coming to the Lord (Galatians 3:24)? “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2).
Matthew 3:8 is clear, “Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.”
In other words, they are to prove, by the fruit which they produce that they have repented of their sins and have turned to God (Psalm 19:7), and this by putting on the new man and not holding to the old man (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:24).
What is the fruit of repentance?
“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.” -2 Corinthians 7:10-11
And speaking of grace, what does the Word of God teach us of grace?
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” -Titus 2:11-15
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” -2 Peter 3:18
In conclusion: Mercy upon a people, and a nation, is to bring judgment upon the heads of the wicked in protecting the innocent, not subjecting yourself to the opposite (Isaiah 26:9).
Therefore, mercy and grace are not responsible for transgressing the law and bringing forth corrupt fruit, rather just the opposite (Romans 3:31). The former is clearly unscriptural.
Those that yield themselves to this unscriptural folly deserve the hell to which they are subjecting themselves (Psalm 9:17).
