Why does God seem only to be brought up by the GOP?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, Heaven knows why God is a GOP issue, is a reprint of a Mike Royco 1992 column he wrote when former President GW Bush who “slammed Democrats for not mentioning God in their platform.”
The purpose of this post is to question the reason for his statement, “Hey if God is a Republican, how come his son was a Jewish liberal?”
King Solomon – Proverbs 1:24-26 When Wisdom Calls Out to You
24Because you refused my call, and no one took outstretched hand 25because you neglected all my counsel, and wanted none of my correction, 25because you neglected all my counsel, and wanted none of my correction, 26in turn I will mock your calamity; I will sneer when terror strikes you, 27when your dread comes like a storm, and your destruction like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish overwhelm you.… 26in turn I will mock your calamity; I will sneer when terror strikes you, 27when your dread comes like a storm, and your destruction like a whirlwind, distress and overwhelm you
What’s My Point?
The above proverbs are the words written by King Solomon to explain what can happen to people who reject the call of the wisdom from God.
In My Opinion,
When I read liberal news columnists today, it sounds to me that perhaps because they reject the wisdom of God, they are now making sounds of their “destruction like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish overwhelm you (them).”
What’s is really wrong is not that the GOP mentions God in politics, rather it is the liberal vanity viewpoint that they are wiser than the Spiritual Wisdom of God.
Perhaps, if more politicians would call out to God to help guide them to make decisions of love and wisdom for our nation, both political parties might get along better than the present display of divisiveness we read and hear about in the news.
Perhaps if both political parties would read up on the wisdom of Solomon, they might hear the call of wisdom, and make the necessary adjustments to govern more wisely that often times results in their losing elections.
Do you have any objections to hearing a politician mention God when they seek assistance to help them govern us with the wisdom of his son who Mike Royco described to be a Jewish liberal?
