New Yurica Report article

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]sunfell)

Katherine Yurica writes some very interesting, and damning stuff- with Biblical references- about the Dominionists. Her latest article, The Big Lie GOP Combatants Tell about Democrats pulls no punches, either.

An excerpt:

“Democrats are liberal godless humanists.”

First of all, Republican Combatants—those folks who either have the innate talent to aggressively attack other folks or have been trained to attack Democrats wherever they find one, whether it be on message boards and blogs on the web, over the air waves, in our churches, in the media, and from every dominionist organization and at every family reunion they attend—the first thing is to notice they all have one thing in common: they have to lie about Democrats and liberals,[1] but Democrats don’t have to lie about them!

The reason Republican Combatants have to lie about Democrats is this: if they told the truth—everyone, including all true Christians would either leave the militant Republican Party and join the Democrats (or other parties), or would actively seek to change the Republican Party back to the party of Abraham Lincoln. So my point is this: GOP Combatants have to slander and stigmatize democrats as a fundamental matter of tactics.

Of course all Christians know that the Bible teaches that slander is a sin.[2] But most folks don’t know that the Bible tells Democrats exactly what to do when they have been slandered. Nevertheless, the Lord, thundering down the paths of time speaks to His beleaguered people through the prophet Isaiah:

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from me, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17 KJV and compare the Amplified Bible on this text[3])

Notice the Amplified Bible says “…and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong.”[4] The Lord is telling his people that they have the responsibility to make it clear the accusations are wrong! That’s pretty darn significant because we are required to “condemn” the statements and expose the falsity, and hence the immorality of the statement makers!

So what is one of the single deadliest-sock-dropper-slanders levied by political combatants against Democrats? It is this combination of terms:

“Democrats are liberal godless humanists.”

Isn’t that a humdinger? If I heard it once, I’ve heard it scores and scores of times. But if you’re a Democrat and if you are a born again, spirit filled Christian, the Republican Combatants are still calling you “a liberal godless humanist!” Who-eee!

It’s important to realize as Christians that these folks are speaking against Democrats on one level—but if we apply Jesus’ words to this situation, we find this verse: “inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it onto me.” So biblically their sin is against Jesus Himself.[5] But if we dwell on the implication of the political combatant’s allegation that Democrats are “godless” for a while, it’s clear that regardless of an individual Democrat’s faith in the Lord—the Combatants are actually disenfranchising members of the brotherhood and sisterhood of Jesus Christ! Hence, if you are a Democrat—you are not a Christian! The mind leaps to that conclusion without effort. Whether Christians who are Democrats know it or not, they have been kicked out of the “body of Christ” by political hacks. This is stunning in its political and social implications!

I usually just dismiss the slander with a look that would make a lonely cloud cry on a sunny day! I used to think, it wasn’t worth my time! But I’ve come to realize that there are a whole lot of folks who can’t tell what’s wrong with the accusation and because someone they respect said it—they believe it. And so a whole lot of folks follow the slanderers and every new fangled twist and turn of the doctrines of the men who are running the GOP show.

Just for a second or two, can we agree that the GOP “show” is something different than the Gospel of Jesus Christ? It’s just a thought.

The GOP political tacticians and combatants have found attacking the faith of Christians who are Democrats is a politically rewarding exercise. But at the same time, as we shall see, this is the biggest whopper and mistake of all time!

Okay, so let’s get on with the lesson for the day: How does one condemn false statements?
