What American Political Party is Right?


















At present in America, a great battle and political war of ideologies is raging for the heart and soul of this nation.

With their  lawlessness  moral relativity and socialistic, big-government/ nanny-state ideology, the Left says, "We are right!"
.
With their compromise of core values and lack of rooted principles, the Moderates say, “We are right!"

With their morally conservative principles and small-government philosophy, the Right says, "We are right!"

My dear friends, who is really right? Well... I would personally say with all authority and passion true conservatism is the best ideology for fallen man in this fallen world. As a matter of fact... I know it is with all of my being. True conservatism was our Founding Father's belief and vision for our nation and its posterity.; but the truth of the matter is None are right. before Almighty God and the light of ETERNITY, ALL these political ideologies are flawed (some way more than others) and in the end and left unto themselves are doomed to stand before the ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (1 John 2:17, Rev. 21:1,4)

The Bible states, But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:21-23).

What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one (Romans (3:10-12).

"For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth". (Rom. 10:2-4)

That's right! In the light of ETERNITY it really doesn't matter which American political party you belong to or affiliation you have. What ALL humans (Left, moderate, Conservatives, religious, non-religious, etc...) need is the perfected RIGHTEOUSNESS demanded by Almighty God and His Saving solution for their soul (John 3!6-17, Acts 4:12, Acts 16:28-30, 1 Tim. 2:3-6). "ALL" have fallen short of the Glory of God! "ALL" have violated and trespassed against the RIGHTEOUS demands of their Creator! "ALL" absolutely need the RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God requires and "ALL" do not have it!

We can endlessly talk and argue about the virtues and evils of various political ideologies and philosophies pertaining to this life, but to be ready for ETERNITY one must posses the RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God requires. Today ALL on the Left and the majority of those on the Right DO NOT offer any solutions for the personal demands of ETERNITY.

The bottom line regarding the question on the table is this: The only One who is RIGHT and PERFECT is none other than Almighty God! Only Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS, i.e., Right! Man and his thoughts - no matter how seemingly good and noble - are not not EVER could be. Man is not perfect, but is a continual and perpetual violator of the Laws and Absolutes of His Creator (Rom. 7:7-25).

You see, it doesn't matter to which political party you belong or affiliation you have. Ask yourself this sober question: Am I absolutely perfect and sinless? Realistically and honestly, everyone’s answer to this question should be a resounding, “No!” This means that you are in desperate need for a Savior to deliver you from yourself with all of its imperfections and sins (no matter how few these may be, or however well you may compare with your neighbors, friends, family, foes, etc.). Almighty God has provided a PERFECT Savior for you if you would only receive him. Almighty God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be your Savior. ALL ideologies and philosophies apart from the absolute TRUTH of God's Word are ETERNALLY bankrupt. However... in light of our bankruptness, Almighty God has AWESOME good news (the Gospel) for you and for the ENTIRE world!

The Bible states, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18).

Almighty God sent His Son to be our Savior. In Christ alone is found the perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS which Almighty God demands of us and has provided it for us in Jesus Christ. The Bible states:

"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth" (Romans 10:4).

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:30-31).

My dear friend, Do you personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? In the face of today's many ills and instabilities, may you be objective in the light of Almighty God's PERFECT Word and humble yourself before His RIGHTEOUS presence. May you choose to consider and then place your FULL trust and faith in the only RIGHT and Perfect One and His saving solution for your fallen humanity. May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

There is no political solution to aspiritual problem. Choices are made, either serve God or serve Satan, it's that simple. God makes everything simple where Satan everything complicated. Goats on the left Sheep on the right. I am a sheep. Yeshua is the Messiah.
