The Oxymoronic “Christian Left Blog”

The Christian Left Blog is anti-Christian, oxymoronic and hypocritical.  For starters, they actively advance their side of the “wedge issues” of abortion and “same-sex marriage” while pretending that we should just give up.  Unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortion was the #1 theme at the Democrat National Convention and “same-sex marriage” is the #1 issue dividing denominations — and not because the Bible-believers are trying to change things.

It is highly disingenuous of them to pretend that the church was pro-abortion and pro-gay theology for 2,000 years and then these mean conservatives came along to drive a wedge.

They are so sloppy and anti-scientific in their language. “Reproductive choice” is a popular euphemism for abortion, but 100% of abortions kill unwanted human beings who have already reproduced.  Don’t let them get away with putting a positive spin on death.

Picture

Predictably, they tout “marriage equality” but same-sex unions are not and will never be equal to real marriage because by nature and design they can never produce children and can never provide a mother and a father to a child.

The Bible couldn’t be more clear.  Even non-Christians and two out of the three types of pro-gay theologians* can see these truths:

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

And their slogan includes a straw man as well.  No one is claiming that homosexuals aren’t autonomous and don’t have the right of free association.

They use tired, horrible arguments like these:

If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one. But don’t judge others who may be in terrible circumstances that you can’t possibly understand. Especially when your judgements are based on a politically motivated and questionable interpretation of the Bible (at best).

Slave owners used the same argument: Don’t like slavery?  Don’t own one.  You could plug any crime in that sentence and it would be equally fallacious.  Every time it would ignore the victim, just like their pro-abortion reasoning does.

Those who say, “If you’re a Christian, you have to be against abortion, and therefore you must vote republican,” are simply reciting talking points from false teachers.

False teachers?!  Indeed.  It is the theological Left that denies essentials of the faith — Jesus’ divinity and exclusivity, the authority of scripture, etc.

In the end, if abortion was such a grievous sin Jesus would have mentioned it.  He said nothing.

Ah, the What Jesus didn’t say argument.  I am embarrassed for people that use that.  Here are the highlights of why that argument is so bad.  Click the link for more.

  • Arguing from silence is a logical fallacy
  • Jesus is God and part of the Trinity that inspired all scripture
  • Jesus supported the Old Testament law to the last letter
  • The “red letters” weren’t silent on these topics in the sense that they reiterated what marriage and murder were
  • Jesus emphasized many other important issues that these liberal theologians completely ignore (Hell, his divinity, his exclusivity, etc.)
  • He was equally “silent” on issues that these folks treat as having the utmost importance (capital punishment, war, welfare, universal health care, etc.)
  • He didn’t specifically mention child abuse and other obvious sins though that wouldn’t justify them
  • Abortion and homosexual behavior simply weren’t hot topics for 1st century Jews.  They actually thought that children were a blessing!
  • And Jesus never said anything about the “sin” of criticizing homosexual behavior and abortion, so it must be OK!

* 1. “The Bible says homosexuality is wrong but it isn’t the word of God” (obviously non-Christians) 2. “The Bible says it is wrong but God changed his mind” (only about 10 things wrong with that) 3. “The Bible is the word of God but you are just misunderstanding it”

  1. I just wanted to encourage you. I really appreciate your blog. I respect your logical arguments and your ability to maintain your moral high ground even with hot topics such as these. I agree that these issues are not gray at all, but black and white.

  2. But the good news is they have declared their independence from these “wedge issues”. That should mean either that they are no longer going to address them or they are admitting they are “independent” from all the biblical arguments made regarding them. In either case, they’re done. Right? (Yeah, I’m not holding my breath on this. Logic has never been their strong point.)

    • The independence they claim is they have made up their minds on them and that everyone who visits that blog must accept their position. They will continue to throw their position out there in future posting but you will not be allowed to comment with a different position. They are “independent” of having to deal with anyone who might challenge their world view.

  3. Well my first question is why are women “beings” and homosexuals “people”.
    That aside you have to admit they are correct, we are all autonomous beings and can make our own choices. And God will judge us accodingly.
    As far as abortion, I have to think that “in as much as you have done it to the least of these” applies here. And people will have to stand before God and explain why they killed a baby that he saw fit to create.
    “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13.
    I believe that people decide when to have intercourse, but God decides when there will be fertilization. I also believe there are no unwanted babies, God wants them all but people fail to do their part.

  4. I came across that blog a few weeks ago when my wife’s cousin posted a graphic from them on facebook. Wow! I concluded it would be more fruitful for me to poke myself in the eyes rather than read any more of that drivel.

  5. Pointing out the obvious: I can control my reproductive life, but that doesn’t give me the license to kill my kid. The question is not whether or not I need a good talking-to about what to do with my girl parts, but about whether or not it’s moral for me to kill my kid in the womb.

  6. You have a nice blog. Like you, some of my posts have been censored by facebook. Also, I debated the people who post on “The Christian Left” site. Basically, I just quoted Scripture to them. They had no meaningful answers. After I posted about 8 or 9 posts, they just deleted *all* of my posts. Incredible.

So, what do you think?
