They betray Christ with a kiss and a few sly talking points about the importance of “reproductive choice.”
By Matt Walsh
A lot of Christians think that taking the Lord’s name in vain means nothing more than uttering a swear word or yelling, “Oh my God” in horror as the opposing team intercepts a pass and takes it 65 yards the other way. But the Lord did not issue this commandment simply to prohibit slips of the tongue and overly emotional exclamations during football games.
If you want to know what taking the Lord’s name in vain really sounds like — and why it’s considered such a grave moral violation — all you have to do is watch the end of last night’s vice presidential debate.In fact all you really need to do is listen anytime a pro-abortion “Christian,” particularly a Democrat politician, speaks up to defend their position. After all, when a Christian who endorses the slaughter of innocent children is called to justify this detestable and heretical view, there are only two ways he can respond:
I have yet to see a Democrat select the first option.
Instead, every time, they do what Tim Kaine did at the debate. They betray Christ with a kiss and a few sly talking points about the importance of “reproductive choice.”
And it’s more than that, of course. Christians who support abortion are guilty of creating scandal, leading others away from God and into evil. I should note that Jesus said it would be better to jump into the sea with a stone tied around your neck than to cause someone else to sin. Not that I’m urging Tim Kaine to drown himself. I’m simply telling you what Christ had to say on the subject.
These Christians are also guilty of denying countless passages in Scripture and rejecting some of the most fundamental and foundational doctrines of our faith. In other words, they’re guilty of renouncing their faith completely. They’re guilty of being religious hypocrites who confess the faith from their mouths but deny it with their deeds and in their hearts.
