After my satirical The Christian Case For Joe Biden 2020, it becomes necessary to give this topic a more serious confrontation. When every political issue is to some degree a moral issue, the issue of voting in general is also a moral issue. Christians have often argued for the application of Christian Liberty on political matters because such matters are one of deep conviction. However, before we can discuss Christian Liberty (Romans 14), we need to first discuss the relationship between faith and works.
14 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? 17 Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.
18 But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” 19 You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder. 20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God. 24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.James 2:14-26
We show our faith by our works. Otherwise, if our faith never tangibly manifests itself, it is dead. Our politics is part of our works. There is no separating politics apart from the rest of our works which should all point to God and bring glory accordingly.
So now that we have established that politics is part of our works, what is a good work and what is an evil work? Since good an evil are objective, we are not yet ready to discuss Christian Liberty. Are certain parties irredeemably evil? If you say no, then perhaps make a case that the Nationalist Socialist German Worker’s Party is not given over and Christians can work within the party. But perhaps hindsight bias makes this question unfair. A current example: the Chinese Communist Party. Can Christians support this party and not be in sin? Now, these are extremes, but these parties have well surpassed the threshold of “given over.” So the question here is: what is the threshold. Many Christians argue that it is abortion. Abortion is certainly sinful, and the more widely available abortion is the more it occurs. Transgenderism is sinful as well as inextricably connected to child abuse. Progressive income taxes are partial; therefore according to the Bible, they are unjust; therefore, they are a sinful policy for a Christian to support. In fact, the Bible calls a tax higher than a tithe tyranny (1 Samuel 8). Can a Christian support a political party that believes in tyrannical taxation? This series of questions can get far more exhaustive. This is not about a single issue. This is about a comprehensive biblical worldview. The ability for the Christian worldview to have a seat at the table is paramount for a political party to be supportable under the umbrella of Christian Liberty. But when we apply the principles that the Bible teaches about politics (2 Timothy 3:16-17), we see that the Democrat Party is given over (Romans 1) while the Republican Party is undecided. There is no room in the Democrat Party for a Christian worldview, just as there is no room in the Nazi Party or the CCP for a Christian worldview. Therefore supporting such political parties is merely supporting the Satanic agenda they propagate.
Joe Biden is hardly an exception. His campaign was dead before being necromanced by unidentified party bosses prior to, Super Tuesday. The question of Hunter Biden is a simple one: is Hunter Biden an entrepreneur starting a business to sell access to his father? Or is he merely a Fredo trying to operate the family business. Both answers are bad, but I believe the evidence points towards Hunter Biden being as incompetent as Vasily Stalin. Therefore the, marred by corruption, character of Joe Biden is perhaps as horrendous as his policy positions. Therefore, it is immoral to support an evil man who will enact evil policies.
Now that the parameters for Christian Liberty are established, we can discuss what Christians’ legitimate options are within there conscience. I think a solid case can be made for Donald Trump, but that is a topic for another video. I think it is possible to make a case for Kanye West. I think it is possible to make a case for not voting at all. And I say “make a case” because Christians will be called to give an account for our words and deeds, not because our salvation is dependent upon it but rather our rewards in Heaven. So what every case you make, make it a good one.
