Leftist Lies about Christianity

There is a new anti-Christian meme floating around social media. And like many of these memes they paint a picture that is not true to Holy Scripture.

The latest one starts off with an individual admitting he was a sinner. And then lists his sin as being left-handed. It further states that his sin is listed in the Bible 25 times. Without referencing a single verse.

At the end of this meme the individual states that society has learned to accept left-handed people so its not longer a sin.

Now anyone who has actually READ the Holy Scriptures or who has studied them, as all believers and followers of Jesus Christ are called to do, will be able to tell you without a doubt that being left-handed is not a sin anywhere in the Bible.

Yes the Bible does talk about left-handed people from time to time. But the point is not that they are sinners because of the hand that the use. In most cases the left-handed individual is called by God to something very Holy. Just that their left-handedness is rare just as it is today. They are far more right-handed people than left-handed. But it is not a sin.

Every sin that is listed within the pages of Holy Scripture are behavioral actions done or in some cases not done. And it is clear that every human on Earth is a sinner and in need of God’s salvation through Christ.

At no point in the Bible is a sin based on the status or attribute of any person. It is always their actions or lack of actions that are an offense to God.

The meme’s purpose is to discredit Christianity, the Bible, and followers of Jesus Christ. It attempt to equate the in-born handedness with the sin behaviors of sexual immoralities, hinting that both are in-born.

This is of course a false doctrine invented by man to raise himself above his Almighty Creator in order to justify his own actions.

Society cannot and never has been able to dictate to God on what is or is not sin based on how “enlightened” that society has become. Sin is sin and will always be sin. God doesn’t change and his laws do not change either.

On April 26th the Iowa Governor Terry Branstad issued a proclamation. This in itself is not unusual. Anyone can request the Governor to issue a proclamation on anything impacting the entire state. There is even an online web form for this submission.

But this particular proclamation has received a lot of hostile press and feedback. Why you might ask? Because this proclamation calls for reading the Holy Bible.

The proclamation gives a history of how the Holy Bible shaped our nations foundation. And how past Presidents felt and spoke about God’s Word to mankind.

The proclamation gives the testimony of who reading the Holy Bible helps solve the problems we face today as a nation and as individuals.

It also calls for anyone who wishes to participate in reading the Holy Bible with others on the steps of all 99 county court houses from June 30th to July 3rd. And the proclamation encourages all Iowans to read the Holy Bible daily until the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Three anti-Christian groups are considering litigation and have condemned the proclamation. These are the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and the Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers.

These groups are siting the so-called belief in the “separation of church and state” as the basis for their litigation and complaints. This is a false belief for various reasons.

The “separation of church and state” is not in the Constitution or in any statute or law of the land. It’s always called up by anti-Christian groups as part of their hate speech against Christianity.

What the Constitution does say in the 1st Amendment about religion is this:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

This means Congress, the legislative body of the United States, cannot create a law establishing a national church. Like the Tudor Kings did in England with the Church of England. The Queen is still the head of that church. Nor can Congress write a law preventing anyone from worshiping as they choose to do so.

This is the sole basis from those anti-Christian groups against the Governor’s proclamation. And it just doesn’t hold up.

The proclamation is not an act of Congress. It does not carry the weight of law or any legal authority. It is not a law. It is completely voluntary without any obligation being required.

For those who do not wish to be involved with a religion or those that do not believe in the divine. They don’t have to read the Holy Bible at home or anywhere else.

They don’t have to join those who are reading the Holy Bible on the court house steps at the end of June. They can just walk on by and ignore them.

But their goal is to destroy the Christian faith and persecute all who practice it. So these anti-Christian groups will continue their assault anyway.

In issuing this proclamation the Governor hasn’t violated any law or principle of our government. He has merely exorcised his office in conjunction with his faith.
