Hijacking Christianity

by | Feb 15, 2020 | Christianity Today | 16 comments

I remember that time when a newscaster asked me a ‘gotcha’ question: “What is your opinion on homosexuality?” My answer was simple, “My opinion does not matter, but I will tell you what the Word of God says about it.”

That ended that. She quickly changed the subject. She had hoped I would offer my own viewpoint so she could attack me as a homophobe. She, like so many on the Left, don’t want you to know they are anti-Bible.  Leftists know that millions of Americans believe the Bible is the Word of God.

When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, every time the devil asked a question, Jesus answered him with scripture. See how that works?

Pete Buttigieg is ‘married’ to a man, something the Bible condemns. However, that doesn’t stop him from quoting the safer parts of the Bible, so as to appear Christian. Like many hypocritical politicians, he knows being tagged as a Christian can get him votes. Obama did the same thing.

Pete believes there are mistakes in the Bible. He feels qualified to differentiate which verses we should believe in. That is a rare kind of arrogance, because he is not only placing himself above Bible scholars, he is exalting himself above God.

His brand of Christianity seeks to meld two utterly incompatible views, and he gets away with it because the media never questions anything those on the Left say. And, our culture is subjective, emotional, and rarely follows things out to their logical conclusion.

Now, take the religious tone out of this, and imagine a physicist who believes in gravity, but does not believe in Isaac Newton. He would be laughed out of the scientific community—just as Buttigieg should be laughed out of the presidential race for appropriating only the parts of the Bible he likes.  He is, in essence, hijacking Christianity.

This hijacking happened before. Obama believes babies can be killed at any point during pregnancy, and even if they should survive abortion. That disregard for human life is blasphemy in the Bible. Yet, he claimed he was a Christian. He hijacked Christianity to get votes.

He claimed ‘Gay love’ is a love from God. But the Bible clearly forbids such perversion, and lists it along with several other sins that are anathema to the Lord.

Time to let the Bible speak for itself. Take a look at this one verse from the Greek Interlinear New Testament:

9 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι ἄδικοι θεο βασιλείαν ο κληρονομήσουσιν; μ πλανᾶσθε: οὔτε πὀρνοι οὔτε εἰδωλολάτραι οὔτε μοιχο οὔτε μαλακο οὔτε ἀρσενοκοῖται

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor a catamite (a man who is used sexually as a woman), nor a sodomite (a man who uses men sexually as a woman),

10οὔτε κλέπται οὔτε πλεονέκται, ο μέθυσοι, ο λοίδοροι, οὐχ ἅρπαγες βασιλείαν θεο κληρονομήσουσιν.

neither thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor thieves will inherit the kingdom of God.  (1 Cor. 6:9-10)

Obama said if the winds of change turned against Islam, he would stand with Islam. How can anyone who calls Jesus Lord—as the Bible teaches—say that? For all this, Obama never hesitated to call himself a Christian. Sadly, even Christianity Today once carried an article defending Obama’s “conversion.”

The trend to uncouple Christ and the Bible is by no means limited to politicians. Even Spirit-filled believers are trying to do it. Most of us have heard preachers talk about their personal experiences that ‘transcend the Bible.’ One preacher went on my Facebook page and called the Bible milk that he had outgrown!

They will tell you they are trusting in the Holy Spirit more than ‘a book.’ But what they are really saying is that they trust in themselves more than the Bible.  The Holy Spirit would never condone abandoning the Bible.

By making same-sex marriage and Christianity compatible, Buttigieg has proven that he, too, is dangerous. By modeling a non-Biblical Christianity, he has shown us he is lethal.

I could respect an honest leftist who would admit they reject the Bible. I can abide them saying they believe the Bible is full of hate—because I can easily prove it is not.

A con artist like Buttigieg needs to be rejected for his massive dishonesty. To use Jesus to get votes, while you are living in open rebellion to the Bible, is to embrace pure evil.

CNN said, “Pete Buttigieg’s rise opens doors to donors that fueled Obama.” The best argument for rejecting Buttigieg is that he is following in Obama’s footsteps. We cannot let him hijack Christianity like Obama did.

    See Jude 1:5-7 which contains a severe warning concerning vile affections and filthy sexual perversion, that God views as exceedingly wicked. Where will such people who choose to live in this sewer wind up? The lake of fire which is the second death. In the light of these verses Buttigieg is a servant of satan pure and simple.

    The left has an evilness that has a very good press agent. They mask their evil with images designed to mask what they are. The left has become demonic.

    But, of course the devil is going to distort the Bible. Didn’t he quote scripture to Jesus? The oldest trick in the book is to try to make people believe a lie as if it were the truth. It has taken me many years to see with my own eyes how corrupt the left really is. It took Obama pushing the country in a direction that was not only against the Bible but against the very ones who deeply believe the word is true to see what they want to do. I have found out that I cannot by myself change the world but by praying together all of us believers can move God’s hand. I don’t fear Mayor Pete. My stand is on God’s word. For nothing shall be impossible with God. We thank you Lord for opening eyes to the real truth. God bless our great country. God bless our President Trump who is revealing how corrupt our government really is. God bless Mario Murillo for sharing his thoughts and opening minds to the truth. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

    Mario insights always help me. This post is no different however………. I must caution that the Obama quote about “winds of change for Islam’ is questionable as I believe President Obama was referring to post 911 sentiment. My thought is President Obama words were in general that we as a nation did not want to become commonly negative toward Muslims – remember doing WWII interment of the Japanese – however me being big on defense and safety was indeed for strong investigations of any one who leaked any negatives toward America or who promoted the Radical Views of Islam. My point is I err on the side of grace as much as possible as I know how weak I am in this life and I am happy my Christian friends do not hold me out to dry, but love me and try to see if I get back on the path – like my loving Lord gives me when I do not deserve it. God Bless Mario for all you do, you help me stay in the Good Fight.

      No…Obama wanted Americans to be negative toward Christians and persecute them, while he covertly embraced Islam ideology which is deeply anti-semitic and antichristian.

        Thanks, I am called politic all the time in church however my values are correct on the REFERENCED quote, however YOU ARE RIGHT President Obama was anti American, anti Christian as I think he did a lot of damage – was he or is he a plant, we cannot know – He got elected because people fail to get off their lazy butts and vote, very sad as now in Virginia they are in crisis as the turnout for so-called republicans and Christians I believe was extremely low so they will have to suffer the consequences. I apologize if my statements slant me to favor him, no but also I do lean to the grace part as my best hope is he is just an opportunistic man and goes with whatever gets him the most – bad yes but at least he is not a camouflaged Muslim.

    Just awakened from dream, that I cannot clearly remember, but reading this when I awakened is bringing it to my rememberance! Thank you for this

    Amen, Mario! Today I was reading the book of Malachi and found a wonderful picture of how the Lord views those who do not compromise and fear the Lord. First he addresses those who compromise by “rewriting” His word [Malachi 3:13-15]
    Then in Malachi 3:16-18 it says that He listens to those of us who fear Him talk with each other and a scroll of remembrance is written IN HIS PRESENCE concerning us and that we honor His Name.
    How fabulous!
    He said He will AGAIN make a distinction between the righteous and the wicked and will spare us in the day that He makes up His treasured possession. Then He goes on to describe the Day of the Lord.

    We must cling to the cross, hate what is evil, love what is truly good and reverence His holy name. May His kingdom come and His will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.♥

    Thank you for speaking the truth. We don’t need another like the last president leading our nation down the ungodly road to destruction.

    Even more dangerous than Pete B are the Christians who encourage his nonsense and tell us that such people are Christians, that they are saved, and we don’t have a right to call out blatant sin as sin. Compromising “christians’ such as this will have much to answer for in Eternity. Jesus called them, “The blind leading the blind” and He said they would, “both fall into the ditch”. That’s pretty strong words from the Master. Such people do so much damage to the Cause of Christ, leading multiple thousands down the wide path to destruction.

    Buttigieg is a Maltese surname meaning chicken owner or poulterer (literally “father of chickens”).

    If Christians cower from Biblical Truth and follow after Peter Buttigieg, plucking up his Antichrist leadership seeds, well, then, quite literally these chickens have found their “father”. What he feeds they ingest. What they ingest forms in the eggs they lay. And more chickens are born.

  10. Paul Bolin

    Always spot on my friend.
    Keep up Your Good work.

    Thank You

  11. Ronald J Wichman

    I couldn’t agree more.

  12. Ike Odumodu

    This piece is a wonderful exposition of the scam the Left is trying to perpetrate. However, God is neither a Republican nor Democrat. As believers, we have to realize that the world does not revolve around the US, but around the word of God. America (the world secular superpower nation), alongside the Vatican (the world religious superpower nation), are both critical in end time happenings. I believe Obama was an agent of Satan, but God allowed him to play his part in the fulfillment of entire events. He was the forerunner to Trump who (as we all know) is no saint either (remember it is not homosexuals alone who are damned according to the bible), but is today playing a very clever game with evangelicals. American evangelicals have been blinded by politics to the extent that they cannot identify the Lawless One (the Beast) whom we are told in 2 Thess. 2:8, that he should be revealed along with the Man of Sin before the RAPTURE (V.3). They have both been revealed already ‐ Google MIDNIGHT NOW by Ike Odumodu. No one can unseat Trump, whether the 2020 elections are able to take place or not. He has fulfilled enough of scripture for watching believers to realize his true identity, and if I’m right, then believers all over the world should be preparing for the appearance of Jesus Christ to take His Church as He promised. If I’m right, THEN it is God’s will that he shall be president until Jesus’s Millennial Return.
