Split Down the Middle and Choosing Sides

Suppose that the U.S. polarization became so trenchant that the nation agreed to split down the middle Ė one side for the "right" and one side for the "left." Such an idea sounds bizarre but two historic happenings took place in America that could have had that kind of outcome.

Split Down the Middle and Choosing Sides

Article#: 783

In the most important category, nothing has changed since the garden of Eden. There are only two options, only two choices, only two camps, and the wages of sin are still death. God had placed two special trees in the midst of paradise. One was the Tree of Life, of which Adam and Eve could freely eat. The other was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. God said concerning it, Genesis, chapter 2, verse 17:

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The two options were and are obedience or disobedience. Christians are often accused of having zero tolerance and being narrow-minded. This assessment is true. If you are surrendered to the word of God, you will have zero tolerance for the doctrines of men and of devils. It’s a matter of Godliness, for God has zero tolerance for the doctrines of men and of devils. Remember, truth knows no opinion. If 2 + 2 = 5, no other conclusion will do. On the other hand, Satan’s camp seems very tolerant. Satan’s camp is the "big tent policy." You can be an atheist, a Satanist, witch, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or a member of any one of the presumed Christian groups who have cast off God’s word for their own. You can be a murderer, rapist, homosexual, adulterer, drunkard, pedophile, etc., etc., and be well accepted in Satan’s tent. This looks like tolerance alright, but don’t be confused by the list — they all have one common denominator and that is disobedience — the second option that existed in the place once called Paradise. Choose life. Choose Jesus Christ and join the camp of the blessed. Click on to "Further With Jesus."  NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 4, verses 18 and 19:

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 3, verse 33:

The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 10, verse 16 and 17:

16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.

17 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.

There are only two camps. The difference is light versus darkness, obedience versus disobedience—just two camps.

MAN SAID: The Bible is not the foundation of correctness and morality. We will create our own way—a better way than the God of the Bible.

Now THE RECORD. America today is becoming ever so much more polarized with the two political camps directly opposed to one another. Did you ever hear the old jaded cliche, "I don’t want to talk about politics or religion"? The reason these two are clumped together is because they are one and the same. Almost every political position has a religious root. The conservatives of America are typically Bible-believing Christians. Many have not considered this, but conservative views are basically Biblical directives. Conservatives believe in self-determination, pro-life, capital punishment, a Christian confession, pro-marriage, and so on, because God believes in these things. Conservatives are against Karl Marx’s communism, much of the welfare state, homosexuality, gay marriage, adoption rights to homosexuals, pornography, atheism, drunkenness, dope, and more, because God is against these things. The liberal platform, on the other hand, has taken up position 180 degrees out from the Biblically-based conservative position. Thus the political terms, "the Right," for the conservatives, and, "the Left," for the liberals—two camps.

To demonstrate another infallible proof that God is and that He has authored the Scriptures which clearly depict the two camps, let’s see what would happen if carnal men actually had their way. Suppose that the U.S. polarization became so trenchant that the nation agreed to split down the middle — one side for the "right" and one side for the "left." Such an idea sounds bizarre but two historic happenings took place in America that could have had that kind of outcome. Those two events were the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.

The demographic profile of the new Right Wing America would be comprised something like this:

  • All followers of Jesus Christ and the Bible;
  • Industrialists looking for a stable work force and business-friendly mind- sets;
  • An entire network of support businesses to uphold the new industrial base;
  • Those who want less government involvement in their lives;
  • Anti-abortion people;
  • Patriots who pledge allegiance to the flag;
  • Those against drugs;
  • Those who favor capital punishment;
  • Those concerned with increasing military defense;
  • Those against homosexuality;
  • Those against pedophiles and bestiality;
  • Those against pornography;
  • Those against gay marriage and adoption of children by homosexuals.

The demographic profile of the new Left Wing America would be comprised something like this:

  • All anti-God people and most evolutionists;
  • Those who don’t want to pledge allegiance to the flag;
  • The liberal-minded media;
  • Communists and socialists;
  • The ACLU;
  • All liberal-minded college professors;
  • Those who want big government;
  • Homosexuals;
  • Abortion-rights advocates;
  • Those interested in reduced defense spending;
  • Those taking advantage of the welfare state;
  • Minorities who have been made to feel disenfranchised;
  • Anti-capitalists;
  • The N.O.W. crowd;
  • P.E.T.A.;
  • Hollywood (the vast majority);
  • Pornographers and those who love pornography;
  • Pedophiles;
  • Dope addicts and peddlers;
  • Those who want same-sex marriage and adoption of children by homosexuals;
  • Those against capital punishment;
  • Witches and Satanists;
  • All members of the occult;
  • Those who want to legalize drugs;
  • Those who want the age of sexual consent dropped to include children;
  • Those who want more vacation days, sick days, personal days, and a four- day work week;
  • Prostitutes;
  • Muslims;
  • Those who hate America;
  • All thieves;
  • All rapists;
  • All murderers

Which side of America do you think would prosper? Which group has the best tools to succeed? The right-wing, Bible-based, conservative group would yield positive and abundant fruit. Satan’s anti-God left-wing would follow his M.O. and self-destruct.

Without the right-wing to support them, the left would soon be reduced to a Third World country. There are only two camps. Choose Jesus Christ—the new and living way.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 4, verses 18 and 19:

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 3, verse 33:

The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

GOD SAID, Proverbs, chapter 10, verses 16 and 17:

16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.

17 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.

There are only two camps. The difference is light versus darkness, obedience versus disobedience — just two camps.

MAN SAID: The Bible is not the foundation of correctness and morality. We will create our own way—a better way than the God of the Bible.

Now you have THE RECORD.
