Twenty-plus Democrat presidential aspirants have been reduced to basically five credible candidates—37-year-old Millennial and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is one of them, who could get the nomination or be on the ticket as vice president. If the aging Biden wins the nomination and presidency, then one day “passes,” we’d have our first openly practicing homosexual, accompanied by his gay “spouse” Chasten, as president of the United States. Time magazine already put them on the cover as our potential “First Family” (May 2019).
Interviewed for USA Today in an article titled “Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s Countercultural Approach to Christianity is What America Needs Now,” the “devoted Christian” takes aim at our president for hypocrisy; attacks the “religious right”; advocates our Christian faith going in a “progressive direction” and wants LGBTQ proponents to “beckon people onto the right side of history.”
While campaigning, he loves quoting Jesus telling us to care “for the least of these…” (Matt. 25:31) as he endorses abortion-on-demand up till birth for those most in need of protection, helpless babies in a mother’s womb. He criticizes fellow Indianan, pro-life Vice President Mike Pence, and advocates the abolition of the Electoral College.
Pete’s father was a Marxist professor who publicly praised the Communist Manifesto. He dedicated much of his academic career to the work of the Italian Communist Party founder.
Regarding Mayor Pete, multitudes in the media are giddy about his ascendancy but are downplaying the issue of his homosexuality and gay “husband” for political reasons.
Meanwhile millions are being desensitized to acceptance of homosexuality through multiplying gay characters in entertainment, pervasive gay pride events and children propagandized in schools. Recently USA Today celebrated the explosion of LGBTQ characters on TV with a front page story (11/8/19) even featuring a picture of the lesbian Batwoman as a superhero and a record 38 transgender characters!
Culturally Relevant or Biblically Faithful
While engaging in conversations regarding Mr. Buttigieg’s lifestyle and other “gay Christians,” we’ll need to “winsomely and skillfully “speak the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15). Remaining silent conveys support for what the Bible clearly reveals as serious sin before our Holy God. He may be articulate and attractive but the liberal Episcopalian Mayor Pete advances heretical positions to the masses.
Today people can self-identify as anything they want and society airbrushes away what in our heart of hearts we know to be wrong in order to appear non-judgmental, welcoming and politically correct. Majoring on people’s “brokenness” and minimizing their sinfulness, we’re viewing this conduct as “not so big a deal” to skirt accusations of “bigotry, hate speech and intolerance.”
For two decades presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren maintained she was a genuine Native American. She ignored the nickname of Indian “Pocahontas” and anyone questioning her real heritage was dismissed emphatically as a misogynist. “How dare people question what she says is true!”
Like in a paternity suit where an irresponsible and selfish man repudiates fathering a child until DNA proves otherwise, Ms. Warren finally capitulated and admitted the counterfeit label and her deception.
Whether it’s Mr. Buttigieg or simply people we know, a person claiming to be an authentic Christian and a practicing homosexual is, according to Scripture, a counterfeit convert.
In the gospels Jesus made clear the seven distinguishing marks of a genuine Christian. Uppermost is unswerving obedience to His Word (John 8:31), not selective or spasmodic adherence. “Whoever says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:4). In no uncertain terms, Jesus warned that on judgment day there will be those professing “Christians” sent tragically into eternal judgment for calling Jesus “Lord” but not doing what He said (Luke 6:46-49).
