DNC chairman Howard Dean in Reno, NV
"I haven't seen gay marriage in the Bible once," Dean said in the keynote address at a Democratic fundraiser at a Reno hotel-casino.
"But I've seen a lot about helping people who are poor and including people and not leaving anybody behind," he said. "Those are core values of the Democratic Party and they also are core values of an awful lot of evangelicals."
Rick Warren, a best-selling author and pastor at a Southern California church, is an example of an evangelical leader who is setting aside "those things that divide us" and doing things "that bring people together — things that really are in the Bible," Dean said. He said those priorities include fighting poverty, global warming and the bloodshed in Darfur.
Let me be very clear, Satan likes nothing more than to be mistaken for God. If any follower of Christ believes that any materialistic goals are more important to God than ones's mind and heart, they are mistaking Satan's goals for God's. Without deminishing the physical needs of a hurting world, that should never be a disciple's primary goal. To say a good 'evangelical leader' is one who stops speaking about those things that divide and only those things that 'bring people to together' is a man inspired truth, not God inspired. Our Lord most assurdely divided during His walk among us on earth. He also united us all in the fact that none of us, on our own, will or can be saved without following Him and His commands. Yes, you must die to yourself and to this world's offerings and live for Him. That indeed seperates a many hearts and minds, sons and fathers, mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters.
Believe it or not, but many people around the world live in poverty beyond our population's worst nightmares all the while with hearts filled with joy and peace . Satan, however, would much rather pervert the truth than to prevent you and I from hearing the truth. The very truth of God found in His holy word, the Bible.
When Howard Dean tells us what is 'really' in the Bible, we should all shudder. He is perverting the word of God, just as Satan prefers. He is not preventing us from reading and studying it. Nope, Howard Dean and many other Liberal minds are perverting it. II Corinthians chapter 11, verse 13 says: "For such are false prophets, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the Apostles of Christ."
Final thought: What do you think is the number one method Satan uses and spreads like a cancer even from our pulpits every Sunday morning?
He gets people to question and deny the authority of scripture! Genesis 3, Did God really say that? are you sure God really ment that? The very armor, and only armor that protects us from such false doctrine and teachings. How clever, eh?
As long as you think feeding, clothing, and holding hands across america at the cost of scriptural authority is a good thing, you remain a willfull perverter of God's truth in Satan's control.
