One criticism of Christianity is that is arrogant and exclusive. While I agree that sometimes Christians can be arrogant to the detriment of the Gospel, it is Jesus Christ Himself who preached on the exclusivity of Christianity.

It was Jesus who said:

    “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

It was Jesus who said:

    “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)

It was Jesus who said:

    “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.” (Mark 7:9)

“…that you may keep your tradition.”

The Greek for tradition is paradosis and it means to pass down a teaching, in other words a tradition.

The Random House Dictionary defines tradition as “the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation.”

Are we not handing down to our children a tradition of 80/20 for the sake of the Republican Party? Why not obey God’s commands for the sake of not only the Republican Party, but also the sake of our nation?

Think on these things as you listen to Steve explain why he asked Pastor Bob why he believes so strongly that abortion is murder:

Steve Address Pastor Bob’s Certainty

How would you answer that question? Steve makes a good point. If someone does not believe that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible word of God, how do you make a case for abortion being evil? How do you convince the 80/20 crowd that under no circumstances can you vote for someone who is pro-choice, aka pro-abortion? Here’s Pastor Bob’s response:

Why Pastor Bob Believes What He Believes

“You’re selling out”

“You’re selling out!”


Does not the Holy Spirit yell that from within you?

Michael Reagan, how can you, as a born-again Christian, believe it is okay to vote for someone who is pro-abortion?

He’ll explain that to us tomorrow.
