God Does Not Rely On The Political Decisions of Men

I asked Pastor Woodrow Walker II, Sr. Pastor of Abundant Life Church in Lithonia, GA if Christians should be involved in politics. He replied, “Well, there is an aspect of politics we must be involved in, but we must not allow our politics to control every decision that we make…”

I asked Pastor Walker why so many Christians voted for Obama when Obama supports “partial-birth-abortion” and “same-sex-marriage”, which are completely against Biblical values. Pastor Walker replied, “President Obama has become, pretty much, a symbol to bring out in many people’s hearts and lives the things that had pre-existed beforehand. I don’t agree with the position of “partial-birth-abortion.” I do not agree with “same-sex” marriage. None of those things are things that I agree with, but I also have to look into the history of the positions that many African-Americans have taken. I believe that as a believer, we must be empathetic if we’re to win anybody. What I mean by empathetic is I don’t want to know just what your problem is, but how did you get to that place of having that problem. And, I believe that we live in a very sick society….we have to look at sin as sin…”

Honestly, I could not follow him. Off camera, before the interview, I asked Pastor Walker if he voted for Obama or not, and he would not answer me.

We did agree on the most important thing – “love God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.”

    WE MUST NOT BE ASHAMED TO STAND UP FOR JESUS. DO NOT HIDE AS A COWARD. TELL PEOPLE YOU DID OR DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA. IF WE VOTE FOR RACE WE ARE NOT UP HOLDING CHRISTIAN VALUES. OBAMA HAS A DO NOT STAND FOR THE WORD OF GOD OR UNITY IN THE WORD OF GOD. MORALE ISSUES WILL BE WHAT WE STAND ON ,NOT FRIENDS OR COLOR OR GROUPS. IT IS THE WORD OF GOD WE JUDGE A PERSON BY. WHAT DO I MEAN JUDGE BY. WHAT FRUITS ARE THEY BEARING IN THE WORD OF GOD. GOOD FRUIT AS A CHRISTIAN OR FOLLOWING THE WORLD. THE PASTOR IS WRONG NOT TO SAY WHAT HE STANDS FOR. WE WILL BE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST OR JUDAS. WHICH ONE ARE WE. FOLLOW JESUS AND LET THIS WORLD GO . AMEN.

    Empathy and Sympathy are not the same things. If we as Christians are suppose to come out and be separate from them, as the Bible speaks of, then we shouldn’t be projecting our feelings and emotions (empathy) into another’s situation. We should be basing our responses upon what the Bible shows us. Yes, God says to love your neighbor as yourself (so generally that would mean to want nothing bad to happen to them, because you wouldn’t want anything bad for yourself and to show them the plan of salvation because wouldn’t you want the plan of salvation shown to you), but the Bible also shows us that God respects life, even the littlest of these (he knew you before you were born, so you were still in the womb and saw you as a person), he also shows us what a family marriage should be in the Bible. Adam had Eve as his help mate, not Adam had John, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph and Mary, etc… So, should I be sympathic if people have the Bible, Churches, TV Church programs available in the USA where they can hear and learn the word of God and what expects of his created and then engage in or have an abortion or live in homosexuality openingly or hidden? I personally don’t think so. It would be more proactive to pray in agreement with others for them to be saved and come out of lifestyles or other activities that would be against what God shows us the way we should go. I don’t believe in hating the people, as I believe they can be forgiven of these sins if they accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and ask for forgiveness and come out from doing those things, not to do them anymore. Even though, Satan can have a real stronghold on some and they’ll fail, but they need to ask for forgiveness again and then truly try to never let it happen again. They need to gather around themselves true Christians as examples and hopefully friends to help them, and need to separate themselves from those who will try to pull them back into activities or lifestyles that could make them sin again, doing those things God shows us is against what he had planned for his creation.

    If a person takes his argument to its
    furthest conclusion, it allows the individual license to continue in
    any type of sinful behavior or actions or beliefs that they choose
    because of their experience. As a believer we still have a
    responsibility to follow the directives given to us by God through
    his word regardless of what we’ve been through, experienced and or
    feel. Mankind has never lived in a world that was perfect or sinless
    therefore he cannot use his experience of being hurt or send against
    as substantiation for doing the wrong thing. Yes sin is sin, but just
    because a person has been sinned against does not give them the right
    to make decisions based on negative treatment by others. If this were
    true then mankind could never be expected to do the right thing at
    any given point in time.

      Matt, It’s too Bad and so Sad that we have an anemic Church that professes to live one way but lives another way entirely…I believe this pastor is compromising the Gospel of Jesus Christ and leading the sheep to slaughter..I agree that we have compassion for others who are living a life of desolation, but we don’t join them in their misery…when we compromise and make this choice, most of the time WE become just as blind as them…when we are called to be the salt and light to this dying world it does not mean lay yourself upon the Alter of Baal.

    I don’t agree that we have to empathize with beliefs that are contrary to the Word. That is making excuse for sin. The fact that Obama is so antiChristian should override skin color. It’s obvious the pastor voted for Obama because of color. He chose color over faith. Not a good thing for a “pastor.” He will answer to his Maker for such actions.

    I can see the “hope” of choosing a leader who promises to do what only God can accomplish.Many people reject God because they realize the depth of their depravity and wish to believe the rules can be changed. They cannot believe choosing to believe in the grace provided by His Son’s sacrifice as adequate to making them acceptable to the Creator. The next best thing, evidently, is to believe the lie that man can heal himself, and be acceptable. Obama embodifies that hope. So the downtrodden vote for a man that says, “the world has held you back, I will make things right.” The ruined my life crowd votes for him because he says, “Your mistakes should be ignored because none of it was your fault.” The truly poor vote for him because he uses man’s greatest fault…envy…by saying, “We will take from the rich and give it to you.” And the pattern of man’s fault’s are countered by sayings of “hope” by Obama which brings votes his way. As scary as this is, our direction is our own doing. Obama cannot fix it, that is a lie. We know who can make it right.
