The Error of Demanding Strict Conservatism


We hear it from conservatives across the country. We hear it from some Ted Cruz supporters. We hear it from the #NeverTrump people. They all demand strict conservatism from Donald Trump, and since they say he is nothing more than a liberal, then they say they will never vote for him. What is in the Bible that parallels this attitude, and what is the message God gives for us for those who are so adamantly stuck onto such strict doctrine? This is what I will cover here.

In Acts 15 it says:

And certain men which came down from Judea taught the brethren, and said, Except you be circumcised after the manner of Moses, you cannot be saved. When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain others of them, should go up to Jerusalem to the apostles and elders about this question. And being brought on their way by the church, they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy to all the brethren. And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church, and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them. But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses. And the apostles and elders came together for to consider this matter.

And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said to them, ‘Men and brethren, you know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, which knows the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Spirit, even as he did to us; and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now therefore, why tempt God to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.’

“…And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, ‘Men and brethren, hearken to me: Simeon has declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written; After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: that the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, says the Lord, who does all these things. Known to God are all his works from the beginning of the world. Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: but that we write to them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. For Moses of old time has in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.'”

So, what is this scripture saying to us, today? The #NeverTrump conservatives are the Pharisee Christian converts. The Pharisee converts in this passage were Jewish converts to Christianity but still believed that everyone must be circumcised to become a true son of God. They were basically hanging onto the strict conservative doctrine of the time. “You cannot be a Christian if you are not circumcised.” The #NeverTrump people say, “You cannot be our Republican nominee if you are not a strict conservative.” Is it not funny that such people did support John McCain for president and Mitt Romney as well as Bob Dole but cannot support Donald Trump, because they are worried he is not a real conservative? No, that is not the reason they do not support him. This is a spiritual issue that is causing this reaction in these people. These people are the Pharisees of Jesus’ time, and what did Jesus call the Pharisees? He called them hypocrites.

God is behind Donald Trump running for president. He is separating the sheep from the goats in this country. He is exposing what is foul in this nation. Donald Trump’s presence has truly exposed to the world where the Republican Party truly stands on the issues. I have been telling you the Republican and Democrat parties are the same. The difference between them is minuscule. One party may rush toward communism faster than the other, but they all keep pushing us closer to the dream state of a leftist. They are all blind to the consequences of where they are leading us. They all think that more government is the solution for all grievances. So, as long as these two parties are the dominant parties, nothing can ever change.

Donald Trump as president cannot change the direction of this country. Ted Cruz as president also cannot change the direction of this country. The direction of this country has already been set. We are moving towards destruction. The seeds of our destruction have already been planted. We are just waiting on the harvest.

God is giving us one last chance. It is not a man that can save us, but it is we the people who can save us. We have to repent as a nation. We have to stand up and demand all unrighteous laws be removed from the books. We have to have a national revival right now. Unless we do, then this coming presidential election will never occur. That is the message God gave me to tell you. The people of Judah did not listen to Jeremiah in his day, and most likely the people of the United States are not going to listen to me today, either. Our time is almost up. The time to act is now. Since my book which God told me to write hints at Obama staying in power, then our destruction is near, because once the election is canceled (postponed), then judgment will have begun and nothing will be able to save us. God will hear no prayer for saving this country once judgment begins. Our time of redemption will have passed.
