News media, such as the Associated Press, are attempting to label Christians who believe their faith values should be reflected in society as “Christian Nationalism”–a white supremacist, extremely dangerous people group. The media are trying to establish the narrative that those seeking to advance biblical values in national politics are a “threat to democracy.” Democracy is the buzz word that has become ingrained in the American lexicon as who we are and why we are successful as a nation. But nothing could be farther from the truth. The United States is a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. Calling America a democracy is a deceptive lie and a Trojan horse to tyranny for the ignorant and uninformed.
The essence of Democracy is anarchy where might makes right and those who shout the loudest rule. The definition of Democracy as provided by Merriam-Webster is: a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections. A Republic is defined as: a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law. God established His earthly government by handing down laws and a system to provide people representation in Exodus 18:21 where able men, men of truth, were selected to rule over the people. Democracy is satan’s counterfeit in rebellion against God’s law.
America’s Founding Fathers rejected democracy because they saw the results of it in France, where anarchy prevailed and there was mob rule. The rule of law is key to a Republic. And all law is based on God’s law. Responsible people are elected to uphold the law in a Republic. In a Democracy, people are ruled by public opinion and the laws become subject to the whims of the people. A Democracy can fall quickly to the sway of public opinion. America’s Republic has been strong because its elected representatives are sworn to uphold the basis of the Republic, which is the Constitution derived from Biblical law. America is the only such government in the world.
Democrats by the very nature of their political party want Democracy. And many Republicans have also bought the lie about the United States being a Democracy. Democracy looks like this: illegal immigration, illegal aliens voting, homosexual marriage, gun control, speech control, religious persecution, soft tyranny, sexual grooming of students in public schools, abortion without restriction, Godlessness, secular humanism, and evolution. Bottom line: Democracy was spoken about by Moses in the Bible as a bad thing. In teaching the Lord’s statues, Moses wrote in Deuteronomy 12:8, “You shall not at all do as we are doing here today—every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.” Don’t buy the lie of Democracy. Open the eyes of your heart and fix them on Christ.
