Is It Time for the GOD Party?

Posted July 8th, 2013 by Jim Ettwein

The GOP is seemingly ineffective.  They can’t get candidates elected any more.  And when they do, their mainstream candidates look like Democrats.

The Democrats are forever intent on replacing traditional religion with the new sacred worship of environment, or pseudogods like immigration amnesty, government healthcare, and government takeover of personal responsibility.

Is it time for God to exercise His muscle and might?  Is it time for us to call upon God to help us restore America to its former greatness?  Will God recognize our pleas?  Or have we descended too far for Him to help?

god wants to talkThe best answer may be through our own existing channels of mass communication.  Our churches.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking.  They can’t do that because they will lose their tax-exempt status.  Yes, this is always the threat of the government.  I say, let them threaten.  The church is mightier than the government.  The church is the foundation of American society.  While we serve God, the government should serve us.  We’re in the middle of this equation, not the bottom.

Suppose the churches began organizing and promulgating a message of truth.  A message of hope. A message of strength.  Recently a minister in Delaware decided to hold a religious service on the beach.  The government refused permission for him to do it, citing the mythical “separation of church and state” clause.  He did it anyway. Over a thousand people showed up.  He plans to hold seven more such events.

We need to remember that the Constitutional protections are there so that we may practice our religion freely, not under the thumb of government permission.

Imagine a Sunday, some weeks from now.  Millions of Americans are gathered in their churches.  The churches preach a message that we haven’t heard in a long time. Not that they don’t tell us, but perhaps not in the same way.

Imagine that they issue a rallying cry to all.  They ask us to think of our history and our commitment to each other.  Not to the government.

It’s time that we took America back. It’s time we reinstated the values our founders instilled in us.  Those values were based on Judeo-Christian values.

American can be great again. If we can convince God that he should help us.

    The “Godless” parties of the politically correct Democrat and Tepublican parties ate an offense to all of the God loving and God fearing people of this once great Republic. He and our founders, must be weeping for what has occurred just in the past decade where killing of the unborn, and gay rights have taken center stage and God and Creator, the Ten Commandments have been deleted and ridiculed on a regular basis. Only when these deviants come to their senses and recognize that our Rights are endowed by our Creator will we return to the Republic that we once knew.

    I do think we need a replacement for the Republican Party. Not a great idea to call it the God party. Mainly because a lot of people react to a party that openly has religion at its core like it was the PLague. Perhaps Founding Principles Party? What ever it’s called, it has to be VERY clear, that it isn’t the same old “democrat lite”.

    Both the religious left and the religious right are already active in politics.

    You want belief in God as a prerequisite for membership in a new political party? They do that in Iran, but it’s called tyranny. The current Republican / Democrat divide identifies candidates just fine. You just don’t like being outvoted on certain issues.

    Actually, the churches DO NOT NEED TO CARE about 501(c)(3) status.

    According to the Internal Revenue Code, “a church, its integrated auxiliaries, and conventions and associations of the church are excluded from taxation.” United States Code, Title 26, 508(c)(1)(A).

    Section 508(c) of the Internal Revenue Code provides that churches are not required to apply for recognition of Section 501(c)(3) status in order to be exempt from federal taxation or to receive tax deductible contributions. Churches are automatically exempt from Federal income tax, and contributions to churches are deductible by donors under section 170.

    The IRS *wants* churches to apply (for “clarity” in deductibility of contributions, of course) — and they can then threaten to take that status away. There are some legal groups hoping to get a case underway so they can get this thrown out wholesale; the IRS has backed down EVERY time they are called out on this threat, as they do NOT want it to go to court.

    What we’ve got now Bro are the Soros Socialist Cartel Party, the EBT Card Party, the Illegals-In-Your-Face Party, the Public Sector Union Party, and the Go-Along Me Too Party.

    Over in the corner is the snake-bit quaking remnants of the TEA Party, – still trying to figure out how as grandparents they out-maneuvered and branded as being in a hate group. They never saw it coming….

    Any God Party you’d try to start would be infiltrated from the start by the Socialists and the Muslim Brotherhood…. And probably a couple of DHS agents for good measure…

    While we can pray for God to save our nation, we need to get ourselves right with Him as individuals first. If we ask Him to fill up our hearts with His spirit, to strengthen and guide us, then we can help strengthen and guide a nation of lemmings who’ve allowed themselves to be bullied into hiding their own faith behind closed doors, while the atheist freaks are in the public square poking God in the eye, and forcing all Americans, through legislation, into complying with pure unadulterated swill.

    God may not care about politics, but He expects us to do our duty in choosing our leaders. When we whine about our choices and stay away from the voting booth, we’re letting the freaks make our choices for us.

    Most of us already know the true history of the founding of this nation. We all know why the Pilgrims came here, and we know this is a nation created on Judeo/Christian principles. We know Jesus is not just a good man, but the Son of God. (Better break out the smelling salts for all those open-minded progressives whose brains are falling out!)

    We know about the Mayflower Compact. We know that God is referred to 4 times in the Declaration, and we know what God-given unalienable rights are.

    As devout Christians, with all of their faith in God and the Bible guiding them, the Founders put their lives, their families and their fortunes on the line to give us the gifts of freedom and liberty, as unique and rare then as it has become today. They couldn’t have accomplished what they did without faith and trust in God. Neither can we save ourselves without Him.

    We know God’s truth. He expects us to spread it. When we ask Him to forgive us for abdicating our duty in honoring Him, he’ll save us. Maybe. If we’re sincere.

    One thing’s for sure. Now that we’ve been relegated to the gutter, we’re in a perfect position to get on our knees.

    Only the Devil delights in lying to us. Only distracted idiots and imbeciles willingly follow him.

    Who will we follow?
    Better hurry and make up your mind.

    “pseudogods like immigration amnesty, government healthcare, and government takeover of personal responsibility”.

    I’m a committed Christian and I’m certain that what the Lord cares about is how your country treats its poorest and most vulnerable people. He doesn’t care about how much tax you pay or how big your budget deficit is.

    Look at the history of Israel and you will see that that is the reason why God took them away from the Promised Land. Repeatedly, the Bible makes references to the Israelites being concerned only with self-enrichment and talks about the Lord as being the God of the poor, the widow and the fatherless.

    Imagine a Sunday, some weeks from now. Millions of Americans are gathered in their churches. The churches preach a message that we haven’t heard in a long time. Not that they don’t tell us, but perhaps not in the same way.

    Imagine that they issue a rallying cry to all. They ask us to think of our history and our commitment to each other. Not to how big our houses are. Not to where we will go on our next holiday. They ask to think of how we can take back our society, of how we can eliminate poverty, of how we can truly care about each other. Because that’s what God wants us to do.

    You talk about God like he lives down the street…he doesn’t…he lives only in your mind. As such, his alleged wishes ought have no place in a political system covering all of the people. In fact, his alleged wishes are merely your wishes…and they are no more God-like and no better than the alleged God wishes the terrorists have in their minds.

    You don’t need a God to beat the Democrats…you need objective, logical thinking…read thefrontiersmen.blogspot.com

    Throughout our nation’s history, churches have done what no government can ever do, namely teach morality and civility.

    Boris, For too long the churches have confused charity with “social justice”. If the churches don’t start preaching what’s actually in the Bible and standing up against the deceit of political correctness, there won’t be church to go to, a pew to sit in, or a place to “hear the message” anymore. ALL things are possible WITH God. Nothing is possible without Him.

    …and Ray, the devil delights in deceit. Thanks for fulfilling THAT “logic”.
