Elizabeth Warren is a Terrible Bible Teacher


Yesterday there was an article posted on CNN and found in Time Magazine referencing the favorite Bible verse among Democrats.  In fact, this verse was turned into a PAC to draw evangelical Christians into voting for President Obama.  Here is the verse.
And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did [it] to one of the least of these My brethren, you did [it] to Me.' Matthew 25:40 NKJV
Here is an "exposition" of that passage from the Democratic perspective.
The passage teaches about God in each of us, that we are bound to each other and we are called to act, not to sit, not to wait, but to act all of us together. -- Elizabeth Warren
I really hope this woman has no aspirations of teaching a Bible class.  First of all, God is not in each of us.  That is more in line with eastern mysticism than Christianity.  The Bible (the book she is using) teaches that the Holy Spirit (that is God) resides in the hearts of those who believe in Jesus.  God is not in the unbeliever.  The unbeliever is spiritually dead.  She then goes on to say that Jesus is teaching that we are bound to each other.  I really have no idea what she means.  As a believer, I am bound to God and to my brethren as the body of Christ.  As a married man, I am bound to my wife.  But I am not bound to anyone else.  I have a calling and a responsibility under God to help others, but I am not bound to them. 

Getting past her political and inaccurate exposition on the words of our Lord, we need to examine to what end she is taking this.  She claims that we are called to act, and while technically correct, she misapplies that calling.  God never compels us to do anything.  We are not called to act collectively, but we are called to act individually.  We all have a personal calling and responsibility to reach out to those to whom God tells us to reach out to.  We are not called for form a society where government takes money by force and uses that money (after squandering much of it on waste and bureaucracy) to use it for what it deems necessary.  Her viewpoint is not one of using the Bible to define her actions, but using it to try and justify her position.  Unfortunately for her, this one passage does not exist in a vacuum and when examined in light of the rest of Scripture, her position is untenable.  In fact, government taking money by force and using it for what it deems necessary only works to hinder or prevent people from following their individual callings. 

However, this passage does have a solid message for Elizabeth Warren and all the so-called Christians who followed into this lie.  Who is the least of all?  Is is the poor?  Is it the widow?  Is it the orphan?  All of these are low, but there is one that is even lower.  The least of all is the unborn child.  The unborn child can not exist outside the protective environment of his or her mother's womb.  They can not walk, they can not talk, they can not even eat or digest food.  They are trapped in a womb with nowhere to run and even if not trapped, they have no ability to run.  The unborn child is the weakest, lowliest, most vulnerable class of person on the face of the earth.  If Elizabeth Warren believes that God is in everyone as she claims to believe, then her own convictions betray her.  God does not need to judge her on His standards and she has failed even on her own standards.  This same is true for all who follow in her lies.  If God is in everyone, then is God not in the unborn child?  If God is not in the unborn child (per her philosophy) then when does God enter?  Does He enter concurrently with birth?  Does He enter when the mother decides the keep the child and by that action "allows" God to enter the child?  If she believes in God then she judges herself with her own belief.  If God is in everyone then God is in the unborn child.  Of course, God is not in everyone, but everyone is created in the image of God.  The unborn child has a soul and is created in the image of God. 

That said, how can Elizabeth Warren believe what she says about Matthew 25 and yet still be full on in favor of abortion?  She has no problem stealing my money to pay for a program she deems necessary yet she has a problem with protecting the life of truly the least among us?  How can anyone who reads Matthew 25:40 and believe it compels government to compel people to give more money but yet it does not compel government to protect the very life of the ones who can not even speak (or vote)?  The fact of the matter is that she is a hypocrite using the Bible to try and justify her wicked views.  If she remains unrepentant and she does not truly accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, it will be to her own destruction.  Sadly, many will choose politics over God and follow down the same spiritually deadly path.  Quite honestly, if you are a Christian, how can you ever support any politician or movement that actually promotes the legality of the slaughter of unborn children?  Quite honestly, I have to doubt that you are.  You have chosen your "god" that that "god" is idolized as a donkey or an elephant.  I said elephant because this is equally true for those who support pro-choice Republicans.  God never tells us to choose the lesser of two evils, probably because the lesser of two evils is still evil.  God tells us to choose righteousness. 

So for all of your out there who think that sacrificing our unborn children on the alter of convenience is right or that these children are acceptable collateral if it means getting other things you want from the political party you like, then I have a message from Jesus to you.  I am not saying you will lose your salvation, but I am questioning whether you even had to begin with because the fruit your are producing is in the form of chemically burned or dismembered children. 
Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do [it] to one of the least of these, you did not do [it] to Me.' And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.  Matthew 25:45-46 NKJV
