While the Republican Party acknowledges Jesus Christ, apparently as one god among many other gods, the Democrat Party is just as wicked in what it does also. This year the opening prayer was met with booing.
First, before you start playing sides as though the RNC is any closer to the true and living God than the DNC, consider that on Tuesday July 19, 2016 California lawyer Harmeet Dhillon provided the opening invocation for the RNC, chanting a Sikh prayer in her native Punjabi and then translated it into English. That prayer was based upon the teachings of Indian Guru Nanak.
Second, the RNC closed out their convention by allowing a Muslim, Sajid Tarir, to offer the benediction last night at the Republican National Convention. Let’s not forget that they also held up as their nominee a Mormon who holds to historically heretical doctrines regarding God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son, as well as redemption.
Now, consider the godless Democrats.
Dr. Cynthia Hale provided the opening prayer, which was met with both cheers and boos, mostly from Bernie Sanders supporters.
Jeffrey Walton reports on Hale:
Hale pastors Ray of Hope Christian Church in Decatur, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. Active in Democratic politics, Hale also featured prominently at the first official event of the DNC Black Caucus on Sunday, July 24, a community worship gathering held at Philadelphia’s Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church titled “DNC Black Caucus: Our Values, Our Voices”.
According to coverage of the event provided by the Philadelphia Sun, Hale made it very clear that there is a war on Black people and her support for expected Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton:
“I feel like there is a war on Black people. Not just police, but by civilians. 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act we are still fighting racism,” said Hale citing notable cases in recent years of police murders of Black men and woman and the murder of teenager Jordan Davis by a White armed civilian.
The worship service packed in nearly 1,000 persons.
Here is what she prayed.
“We have an opportunity, O God, to give undeniable evidence of our commitment to justice and equality by nominating Hillary Rodham Clinton as our candidate – hallelujah – for the highest office in the land. God, you have given us wisdom. Now give us courage for the facing of this hour. Unite us, O God, in one party. It is in your mighty name that we pray. Amen.”
Now, the fact that you have a woman “pastor” doing this is a problem in and of itself. However, it is disturbing to ask God to bless a pathological liar like Hillary Clinton and to claim that promoting her is “wisdom” from God. Apparently, Dr. Hale hasn’t read her Bible very well to know what true wisdom is.
Not only does Clinton have decades full of scandals that exemplify her and her husband’s corruption, but take a look as she cheers, applauds and laughs as “under God” is taken out of her introduction.
So, it appears that Sanders’ supporters were not booing prayer per se, but rather what was contained in the prayer, namely the promotion of Hillary Clinton. With that in mind, let me say that I would have booed it too, but I would never be caught dead or alive at a DNC. OK, maybe I would if they had dead voters listed there.
God has commanded that we have no other Gods before him (Exodus 20:3). Yet, both parties are literally hell bent on violating that commandment. According to the words of Scripture, God isn’t listening to either of these parties and their fake prayers because they still have iniquity in their hearts (Psalm 66:18).
