Who is “the enemy” ?

DNC

     Recently a Democratic Presidential nominees gaffe referred to the Republicans as “the enemy”. The GOP establishment immediately took umbrage that she would call them, or in fact, any American “the enemy”. The old guard have no enemies in politics it would seem.They have “friends” on the left. They have “colleagues” on the left. What they were in fact saying is that politics is a job, and a game to be played with the lives and freedom of 350 million people, not a duty, nor a battle. The GOP establishment reminded Americans in that moment that their default reaction is “go along to get along”. They should have responded in agreement  that the Left is the “enemy” of freedom and liberty. It is my belief that the potential DNC Candidate gave the more honest assessment of the DNC’s feelings about Conservatives in America. It was a tactical error on her part, but the sentiment is shared by the true zealots of the DNC, and is reciprocated by the true defenders of Conservatism. Those patriots of the GOP are still marginalized, but they are growing in power, led largely by Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and others.

   We are the enemy of the liberal progressives (now admitted socialists) and their twisted vision for Barrack Obama’s stated “fundamental transformation” of America. Let us not forget that to “transform” ie; remake America you must first unmake America. Anyone who would attempt to unmake America is an enemy of the people, and an enemy of God. Any such agenda is led in the spiritual realms by the adversary of our souls, Lucifer. (1 Peter 5:8)

Ephesians 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

    The United States of America is one of only two nations whose very existence is based on a Covenant with God, not Allah, not Buddha, not Krishna, but Jehovah God, Yahweh, Elohim, Israel being the other. If we, as a society, allow ourselves to be dragged further and further to the left, further away from Biblical truth, further away from Righteousness, we will have become complicit in breaking a promise to God, and our destruction will be certain. Is the preservation of our Covenant promise to God worth fighting for? Are those who would break that promise influenced by the enemy of our souls? How do we then fight that battle?

1 Peter 5:6-10 (ESV)

   Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (ESV)

  For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

   We must check our own thoughts against scripture. We must recognize who we are dealing with based on the fruit they bear. (Matthew 7:16) We must pray, read, and study. (1 Timothy 4:13) We must share, tweet, and engage. (Matthew 20:19-20)

    83% of all Americans claim to be Christians, yet we are being steamrolled politically by a very small percentage of Godless, yet very vocal, liberal and humanistic minority.

    It is time for the slumbering giant to wake up and push back. Push back in prayer. Push back by running for office. Push back by teaching your children the Bible and the Constitution. Push back by using your social media accounts for something other than watching cat videos. I will be here, doing the same!

  1. I wholly reject the confusing of the Right with Righteous. Conservative politics has little to do with God, and in some instances I would say contradicts Godliness, such as the indifference for the plight of the poor, or creating a substrate for material greed and worshiping it. It is a false equation which should embarrass anyone making that point.

    Further though I agree that politics is not a game and its implications are life changing for all citizens and should therefore be taken seriously, it is clear that this does not mean physically attacking an ideological opponent. When Clinton mentioned Republicans as one of her enemies it was clearly tongue in cheek. Either way, it was referring to the fact that Republicans have made her personally into a target of political attack for years, not the other way around. She sees Republicans as her enemies, not herself as the enemy of Republicans. Another misrepresentation in your self righteous essay.

    Though Centuries we have developed the civility to fight ideologically and politically without treating each other as real enemies, ones that you would beat up or shoot at. It appears that you are taking the diametrically opposing path, using a miss-quote, humorlessly processed, to justify expression of hate in the political sphere. That is regression, not advancement.

  2. One more thing, it is misleading to say Democrats are now Socialists. There is a clear distinction between Socialist and Democratic Socialist, which is what Bernie Sanders ascribes to.

    Socialism is autocratic and based on “reforming” the system into a dictatorship that replaces private businesses and industries with state institutions, also referred to as Centralized Planning. Democratic Socialism is the approach Democratic countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Australia, and Israel have taken at different times. It does provide safety nets for the middle-class and the poor, and seeks to balance out inherent injustices caused by deregulated industries. Muddying the difference is ideologically insincere if not intentionally malicious and deceptive. It’s a shame!

    • Thank you for your comments!

      However, I have but one question for you. Do you believe that Satan exists and is the ruler of this world, as scripture says?

      If you do, then you also believe he has an agenda to separate God’s creation from having fellowship with their Creator. Bearing this in mind we must then conclude that we are being tempted everyday to turn our backs on God and proceed down a path of distraction, sin, and eventually eternal separation.

      While I agree that as a general rule “politicians are politicians” and most are in fact liars, the GOP’s current stances are most accurately in line with scripture. Capitalism is , in the long run, the most effective way of helping the poor and middle class. On the surface grabbing up that monthly check from a Socialist (or Democratic Socialist) Government seems more effective, but in the long run is unsustainable, leading to Communism, Government control of virtually everything, and as we saw with the USSR, and others, collapse.

      Your comments speak of righteousness, as if you have at least some knowledge of the concept, but your counterpoints are entirely secular, and humanistic in nature. There are some true biblical conservatives currently running for the GOP nomination and fighting to pull America back towards our roots, rather than continue our devolution into a totally godless, atheistic society. The scariest thing I see amongst those who would share your view is that they see no slippery slopes, and believe that their own opinion of Gods written Word trumps His intended guidance. The whole of scripture, in it’s original languages, supports Capitalism, Religious Freedom, Sanctity of Life, Sanctity of Marriage, Gun Rights, Support of Israel, and tells us that Isaac and Ishmael (fathers of Judaism and Islam) are eternal enemies, that the Nation of Israel are Gods Chosen People, and those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. All of these stances are , at least in word, are the stances of Conservatism. The condition of the hearts of the men in question are unknown to me, but scripture tells us we will know them by their fruit.

      We are indeed engaged in spiritual warfare, not a physical one, and there is no grey area.
