Did God die in the DNC?


"Once we try to intellectualize the faith which has been given to us, we often times lose it. I have seen this more times than I would like to admit."
Years ago there was a movement called "Is God dead"? It was like, okay, at one time humans needed a God, but do longer. The "fairy tale" God is dead. It caught on to some degree, but fortunately, not enough.
Today in a political sense, the evangelicals and born again Christians seem to have gathered on the Right side of the aisle, and the ones who think God is dead, seem to gravitate towards the Left. Not 100% for each - but there sure seems to be a majority on both sides.
I have thought about this issue many times. What is it, about the Creator of all things, great and small, that would cause Democrats to boo His name at a convention? To willingly and joyfully kill His unborn children? Would cause Democrats to want the name of "God" out of any oath? Out of our money? Out of everything? What is it?
I would like to ask Mazie Hirono (D-HI) what the answer is. Why her? Mazie has said the Democrats are so much smarter than the rest of us, most can't understand them. Yes, they are that cerebral. I would however, like to give it a try. But wait - maybe that is the answer embedded in the question. Democrats have drunk their own bathwater for so long, they now think they are the Guardians of the Universe. Smarter than any perceived, or real Creator. And this - is exactly why the Bible tells us to believe as children. Once we try to intellectualize the faith which has been given to us, we often times lose it. I have seen this more times than I would like to admit.
But there is another side to this coin. The evangelicals, and born again Christians on the Right, believe in the strongest of all terms that this nation has been blessed by God for a reason. A big part of that reason is that we recognize God as sovereign. He rules. He is our Father. To dismiss our living God as a fairy tale, or obsolete, or "dead", has not worked well for civilizations in the past. Nor will it work well for civilizations in the present or future.
Did God die in the DNC? No, God is alive everywhere. In everything. The only thing which died in the DNC, is faith in God. But here is the good news - no the very good news for the DNC. Come back to God, come back to the Word, and you will be forgiven. For not only do we worship a living God, we worship a God of grace. A God of forgiveness. Take this offer. It is the best one you will ever receive.
ps. If you are a Democrat, and have a strong belief in God, try and steer your party back to at least the center. Try and fix their misguided view on abortion. Sixty years ago, the differences between the two parties were not that big. Faith in God was not an issue. The gulf was not that huge. Today, it is like night and day.
