Leaders Must Oppose the Wicked

“A wise king winnows the wicked, and drives the threshing wheel over them.”
(Proverbs 20:26)

This verse speaks to the responsibility of those who have been elected to rule in our state civil government. The rulers’ responsibility is to punish those who do evil and reward those who do good. When a ruler violates God standards by protecting those who practice wickedness, he has abrogated his authority and those in lesser magistrate positions must interpose themselves to protect the citizens from those who violate God’s laws.

The primary purpose of civil government is to punish those who do evil and protect those who live honorable, virtuous, law abiding lives.

Those who support Planned Parenthood and promote the killing of unborn babies and defend the selling of their body parts for profit, those who accept, affirm and celebrate the perverted homosexual lifestyle, those who consent to allowing and who promote homosexual marriage, which is really a mirage because it is a lie, those who would allow perverted men, who claim to be women, to use women’s public bathrooms, showers and locker rooms, those who want to teach the perverted homosexual lifestyle to children in the schools, these people and their political movements are hell bent on destroying anyone who has the courage to stand for Christ and the Word of God. They want to create moral anarchy in society and overthrow the teachings of the Bible, and destroy Biblical standards and Biblical Christianity.

“Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” (Romans 1:24-32)

We have a three-fold responsibility. Firstly, we must proclaim the good news of the Gospel to these lost souls and call them to repent of their sins and place their trust in Jesus Christ, who died to pay for the penalty of sin. Secondly, if they refuse to repent and continue to promote their reprobate behavior, then they must be reprimanded, rebuked and winnowed. Finally, we must oppose any ruler who justifies these wicked people and their anarchist political movements.

A spiritual war is underway for the soul of America. A major front in this battle is being waged in the civil government arena. Those Christians who are serving in elected offices must “put on the full armor of God, so that they will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil… and take up the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:10, 17)

Our enemies are Marxists, Alinskyites, socialists, communists, anarchists, atheists and secularists. They will use worldly wisdom to persuade us to tolerate their evil actions. They will manipulate the language to make their behavior seem harmless and even wholesome. They will deride and attempt to intimidate anyone who refuses to endorse their agenda. We must fill our minds with God’s word, so that we can gain God’s wisdom, and instruction, discern the sayings of understanding and receive instruction in wise behavior, righteousness, justice and equity. Then we must oppose their worldly philosophy with the holy scripture. God’s word is our most effective offensive weapon and we should use it at all times to refute our opponents.

The enemies of liberty have organized a radical movement to destroy President Trump and to intimidate anyone who opposes their wicked goals. President Trump will not be intimidated. He has demonstrated the courage of his convictions. We must follow his example.
