I actually put this post together Feb. 29th but stuck it in save draft. But today I thought to drag it out and post it mainly because Christian Newswire has yet another ‘news’ item up today from this guy.
Two items at Christian Newswire caught my eye,
“Christians are to obey God and turn away from Barack Obama — Obama is lost in sin,” says pastor Steven Andrew. He is president of USA Christian Ministries and author of “Making A Strong Christian Nation.”
“God says it is sin for a Christian to vote for Mitt Romney because Mormons preach a different gospel. Romney as president would be God’s judgment,” says pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries.
The one from today,
Pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries, submits the following and is available for comment: “The GOP election is ‘God and Santorum vs. Satan and Romney’,” says pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries and author of “Making Strong Christian Nation”. “If you want God’s blessings for Americans, then vote for Christian Rick Santorum, not Mormon Mitt Romney,” he adds….
“God’s issues or ‘social issues’ are the most important election issues because God rewards nations who obey Him with prosperity and sends famine to those disobeying Him (Deuteronomy 28, Nehemiah 9:32-38, Leviticus 26),” the author teaches in “Making A Strong Christian Nation”.
What interested me was that so many of these Pastors talk about God’s judgment on America (unless their candidate wins) but seem to forget “judgment must begin at the house of God….” 1 Peter 4:17
12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
