I want to tell you how much I like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. In fact I’ll go beyond that and I’ll say that I love Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Jesus said “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Matt. 22:39).
I love them so much because they’re doing a fabulous job of wrecking the party of death. What’s the party of death? The party of death is the general grouping of all politicians who work to implement the “liberal” culture of death. The culture of death is abortion, homosexuality and socialism.
I hope you don’t mind my getting a little bit political. I take up a wide variety of subjects in my Defending the Faith articles and some of them have political implications. In this article I’ll expose the roots of the culture of death. This will give you keen insight into the political and cultural division in the western world and how it can be remedied.
Someone might say “Bill, it’s not nice to call leftists ‘the party of death!'” I don’t engage in crass name calling. “Party of death” is merely descriptive. They stand for abortion. Abortion is murder. Abortion is death. The people who promote it, promote death. If death is what they work to implement, why not simply describe them as the “party of death”?
Let me be clear on this: I’m not calling the Democrats the party of death. There are millions of Republicans and independents who work to implement the culture of death. All the so-called “progressives” are in the party of death though I do admit that the Democrats overwhelmingly make up the party of death. The once proud Democratic Party, former champion of the working man, has devolved into being the advocate for abortion and sexual deviancy. I’m also quick to point out that there are some pro-life Democrats.
Our country, the United States of America, is sharply divided today. In fact, all of western civilization is divided today. It’s divided along the lines of life versus death. The Democratic party and the liberal Republicans have been implementing the culture of death and have been largely successful.
The division is not over raising taxes on Bill Gates and the other billionaires. Taxation is dust on the scales compared to abortion. Abortion is blood and guts. It’s 50 million babies torn limb from limb, feeling excruciating pain as they die. It’s been legal to murder the preborn in the U.S. since 1973. Homosexuality is not a lifestyle but is a death-style. It’s a psychopathology that leads to depression, dysfunction, despair and suicide. Socialism is really just a euphemism for totalitarianism. Socialism is total government control and destruction of economic freedom.
The party of death works for the death of the unborn, the death of sexual purity, the death of liberty and the death of Israel.
Nancy P. Pelosi (1940- ) of California, Speaker of the House, is a hyper-partisan, uncompromising and thankfully ineffective promoter of the party of death agenda of abortion, homosexuality and socialism. I like her so much because she’s so hyper-partisan she’s not able to cobble together an effective consensus to fully implement the death agenda of her party. Furthermore, her public statements are so revolting that mainstream voters are largely inclined to reject her and her party at the next midterm elections in 2022. I like this lady!!
Charles E. Schumer (1950- ) of New York, Senate Majority leader, is an East coast, liberal hyper-leftist uncompromising, divisive figure. He is also, thankfully, ineffective in getting the death agenda through. His demeanor is such that the voters of mainstream America find him revolting and he is a poster child of the Democratic party. We will see the party of death voted out of office in 2022. His sharp NYC accent and his overbearing style is a sad emblem of the party of death. You’ve got to love him!!
The party of death knows that it has lost mainstream America. This accounts for their attempt to open the borders wide and bring in a new electorate. Bringing in immigrants from poor countries that demographically and statistically vote overwhelmingly for the Democrats is a plain and transparent strategy. Biden has indicated his intention to open the way for the 16 million or so illegal aliens in the country to have a clear path to citizenship so they’ll be able to vote overwhelmingly for the party of death. You can be sure that if this goes through that there would likely be another 16 million trying to come in after that. This would turn America into a multicultural, overcrowded, poverty stricken, third world country. It would be a one party country. The U.S. would be a country run by the party of death with abortion, homosexuality and socialism legislated and almost impossible to uproot for generations.
They say they want to open the borders because of compassion to bring in poor people to help them build better lives. I have news for them. Mexico is not hell and America is not heaven! t has nothing to do with compassion. We’re not stopping saints from entering Paradise. We were building a border wall to control our border. Mexico is a beautiful country. I’ve been there. The people are friendly and hard-working. When they come to our country many go to our inner cities, to the cesspool of pornography, drug abuse, alcoholism and violence. Innocent Mexican farm boys are corrupted by the vice that is in our inner cities.
The rich liberal Republican corporation people want millions of immigrants to exploit as cheap labor. The liberal Republicans and liberal Democrats are joined together in the party of death.
The worst thing the liberals do to us is appoint and confirm pro-abortion judges that read their left wing opinions into the constitution. Liberal activist judges is how we got Roe vs. Wade (1973, abortion) and Obergefell vs. Hodge (2015, the decision that forced gay marriage on all 50 states). They also work to disarm the people so only police and criminals have guns so the people would be at the mercy of both. They also work against school choice so all children are forced into government run schools teaching the gay agenda K through twelve. Add to that lax law enforcement, rising crime rate and host of other “progressive” goals.
Pelosi and Schumer recently completed an unwise, unconstitutional impeachment trial against former president Trump. This showed the party of death to be vengeful against Trump and disdainful of constitutional limitations on Congressional power. The voters hated it. The voters saw the party of death with its mask off. They will vote it out of office in 2022. It’s been said that if you see your enemy making a mistake, don’t interrupt him. We let Pelosi and Schumer proceed with their kangaroo court impeachment. We watched them shoot themselves in the foot. You’ve got to love it!!
The whole division in America and, in fact, all across the Western world, really boils down to two religions. One religion, which I will call the religion of death, is atheistic materialism. It claims there is no God; just matter and energy. Life formed by random collisions of atoms. Human life is not sacred. Just kill babies in the womb and kill babies by partial birth abortion while they’re being born. They claim there’s no law from God, no absolutes, just man’s law changing from year to year.
The other religion which I will call the religion of life is the claim that God created us and gave us His law, his absolute morals that apply to all people in all cultures at all times. God gave us the concept of the sacredness of human life, because human beings are created in His image. The sacredness of human life is the basis of all human rights. God’s laws of traditional marriage consisting of one man and one woman is the basis of romantic love and good child rearing. God’s concept of property rights is based on the eighth commandment: “thou shalt not steal” (Exodus 20:15). The Bible gives us the Protestant work ethic. The early Americans said: “Put your hands to work and your heart to God.”
Which religion is true? How do I know that the religion of life is really true? I will give you the proof in one word and that one word is MIRACLES!! Yes that’s it. It all boils down to miracles. It’s like that scene in The Graduate in which a man speaks to Benjamin Braddock and says simply “plastics.” It was fatherly advice to give him some career counseling to go into plastics and make a lot of money. One word explains it all.
God gave us miracles. God signs His work with miracles. God signs His Bible with miracles. I’ve often said that Jesus Christ came and fulfillment of over 300 prophecies that were written in the Old Testament hundreds of years before his birth. No other person in all of world history can make anything like this claim. No other leader in any world religion can make this claim. Fulfilled prophecies are miracles!!
I could mention other miracles that show that the religion of life, biblical Christianity, is the true religion. I myself have seen miracles. I prayed for a woman and saw her leg healed right under my hands as I prayed! There are millions of others who have received miraculous healings and answers to prayer. There are meetings held by healing evangelists in which dramatic healings occur.
Mahesh Chavda, a Christian Minister, was preaching in Belgium and a woman, blind from birth, received her sight instantly during his sermon. I questioned him directly about this and he told me the details. A doctor was in the congregation and he confirmed the miracle.
God gives His offer of forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ who died for our sins and was raised from the dead. If people cling to their religion of death, the religion of materialism and atheism, they are on the road to damnation. If they reject God’s offer of forgiveness they will be damned. They will be separated from God’s love in the afterlife. They will get what they want but they won’t want what they get.
“I have set before thee this day life . . . and death” (Deut. 30:15). God freely offers forgiveness through Jesus Christ to those who repent and turn to Him in humble prayer and ask for forgiveness. I invite you to turn to Christ today to receive forgiveness of sins.
Steps to salvation:
Jesus said “Ye must be born again” (John 3:7).
Prayer to receive salvation:
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
To receive the salvation that Jesus purchased for us at the terrible cost of His suffering and death on our behalf I invite you to pray this simple prayer:
“Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Jesus, the promised Messiah, to die for my sins. I admit that I am a sinner. I repent of my sins and I ask for your forgiveness on the basis of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I ask you to fill me with your Holy Spirit to empower me to serve you under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, Amen.”
If you prayed this prayer in the humble sincerity of your heart then you have received everlasting life, which includes power to live right in this life and entrance into heaven in the afterlife!
