I Didn't Say It – God Did
Biblical ignorance and unrepentant intolerance for those of us who are neither ashamed nor afraid to stand up for our belief in Christian principles are the benchmark of those liberals who feign enlightenment. Such is the case with Michael Ross who writes a national political rebuttal carried by examiner.com. Typically I ignore the rationale of a monosomic cretin in instances such as this, but sometimes a fool needs to be answered.
Not surprisingly, like many who reject the truth in favor of their own understanding, Ross took exception with my recent column “Saul, Herod, and Obama” (http://newdailyrant.wpengine.com/saul-herod-obama/). He wrote, “Like many self-proclaimed Christians on the far right, Mychal Massie…evidently believes it is entirely his right to decide who is or is not allowed to call themselves Christians.”
Well, “Sluggo” (as in Smith), allow me to retort. What those like him do not grasp is that salvation through Jesus Christ is real and verifiable. The fact that he and his kind choose to minimize and/or reject the Word of God is neither my concern nor my problem (and no I’m not saying I do not believe in evangelism). I submit that the only reason, he was upset by my words is that he was convicted by them. And I’m not a self-proclaimed Christian as he means it — I am one with Christ through my born-again experience. The Word of God identifies me as a child of God. And even though the assignation of Christian was a first-century put down of the followers/believers of Christ, the people embraced it, and so it continues today.
It seems that Ross also took exception with my condemnation of Obama for his advocation that homosexual sensitivity, etc., be taught to children kindergarten through fifth grade. His attempt at insulting me for having written (several years ago) that Obama was conditioning children to embrace an aberrant and debaucherous behavior pattern is pathetic. But here again his logic is as flawed as he is because you don’t teach children K-5 to embrace homosexuality without the anticipation of some of them not practicing same any more than you teach K-5 English without expecting them to speak it.
Ross displays not only his ignorance, but also his absence (or complete rejection) of biblical understanding is presented for the world to see. Yes, I said that true Christians cannot support a man like Obama who is more of an abortion advocate than Planned Parenthood (See: Darth Democrat; 11/16/04). Yes, I said that no true Christian can support someone like Obama who advocates and stridently believes in everything God’s Word speaks against.
Ross and those of his persuasion would do well to read Romans 8:5-27. I direct him and his ilk to James 4:8. Yes, I said that no true Christian can support the likes of Obama. I’m neither ashamed of saying it, nor am I remotely inclined to apologize for saying it. But I am willing to make a deal with Ross and all those like him. I believe what I believe, and he can believe whatever — and when I get to heaven we’ll see who was right.
Ross and those of his persuasion are upset, but they are arguing with the wrong person. They shouldn’t be upset and arguing with me; they should be upset and argue with God. He said it. I’m just repeating what He said. I base my beliefs on the Crucified and Risen Lord. Who do Ross and those like him base their beliefs on? I’m betting it’s the very one Jesus said He “beheld fall like lightning from heaven.” (Luke 10:18)
