Pastor John MacArthur: Democrats ‘Adopted The Sins of Romans 1 As Their Platform’
CNS News ^ | 12-10-12 | Jon Street

Posted on 12/11/2012 8:56:08 PM PST by ReformationFan

Evangelical pastor and author John MacArthur said that the Democratic Party has “adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their platform."

“And as you know,” MacArthur told his Southern California congregation on Sept. 30, “I’m not one to talk about politics as such, but I was essentially amazed that one of the historic parties here in the United States adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their platform. This is a new day in our country. Parties which used to differ on economics now differ dramatically on issues that invade the realm of God’s law and morality.”

MacArthur is an author, pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, Calif., president of The Master’s College and Seminary, and a teacher at Grace to You media ministry.

“In an ideal situation, their platform would mean that the government passes out condoms so people can fornicate at will,” said MacArthur. “For those who happen to get pregnant in the process, the platform advocates that you kill the baby at the will of the mother, up and including the ninth month.”

“At the same time,” he said, “it advocates homosexual marriage, which is an oxymoron, an utter impossibility, and a gross violation of the law of God. And then, to add to that, the murder of abortion and then the platform originally leaving God out. All of that is Romans 1.

"Romans 1 says God will judge, God has judged, throughout human history, nations that experience sexual freedom," he said. "Romans Chapter 1 lays that out clearly. The wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against those who advocate sexual freedoms, sexual conduct outside of marriage. And that's an indication of a demise of a nation.

"And then Romans 1 also says God will judge those nations that advocate homosexual behavior,

I’ve read many of his book and value each one. I think he makes excellent points on this issue.

A magnificent declaration by MacArthur. He speaks for all of us. This remark needs to ring in the halls of congress, as a clarion call to “get a clue, America”. Good for John.

“Romans 1 also says God will judge those nation”

Unless we repent we are toast.

Could be too late.

Too many babies have been killed in the womb. With taxpayer dollars. With the full blessing of the law. No one blinks at the mass killing that continues year and year.

We have a president who rejoices at every baby who is killed. He even funds it as a “health” benefit.

I believe the three best preachers in America are Pastor Dr. MacArthur, Pastor David Jeremiah, and Dr. Pastor Swindoll. One of them is my favorite, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that all three are faithful to bring the Word of God to America.

And Dr. MacArthur is right on target about the Democrats and Romans 1. (And what he says is that the sin described in Romans 1 will NOT bring about the Judgment of God. He is saying that the Judgment of God is here, and the sin describe there are symptoms and keymarks of that Judgment.

I agree. I think it was Billy Graham who once said something to the effect if God doesn’t judge America soon, he’ll have to apologize to Sodom & Gomorrah. We are probably past due our national punishment. Alas, the patience of God may be beyond our comprehension, yet we know it eventually has a limit.

All orthodox expositors of the word of God. I would add R.C. Sproul and Douglas Wilson to that list as well.

Wouldn't do any good. Glenn Beck believes the Book of Mormon trumps the Bible.

I do agree with those who say we are past due for judgement. And that being the case, what about the rest of the world which is many times worse than the USA?

I see many dark clouds on the horizon. Pity the soul that does not know Christ, for they are without excuse in a society that has such easy access to the word of God.

The problem with Beck is not that he doesn’t have the word of God available to him and he doesn’t read it. No, GBs problem is that he doesn’t really believe it. He is into some “different gospel” which is no gospel at all. Gal. 1:6-7

Sorry to say it.

The ONLY reason G*D has not judged America is the we(for the most part until recently) have supported Isreal. We abandon that support and we had better stand by to stand by.

Actually, Romans 1 says homosexuality is the judgment. "God gave them up to depravity" because they forgot God. What we are seeing is God giving up this nation for forgetting him. Regardless of the votes of the people, homo-promos are winning the battle.

I agree. We will be disgarded as if we were never anything at all.

And we voted for four more years of this.

I would add "sermonaudio.com" also. It has an archive of thousands and thousands of sermons. Lately I've been really hooked on Voddie Baucham. He is an incredible teacher and preacher of God's word. He's definitely my current favorite.
