Pastor Steven Andrew: Again…


Last week I posted quotes from articles written by this pastor Steven Andrew (Just Musing) and I see Christian NewsWire has a new article, by the same pastor, up today: Pastor: ‘God Says Romney is Accursed’ (Galatians 1:9) – Unite GOP with Santorum for God’s Economic Blessings

I can’t help but find these (this one and the earlier ones) interesting…

Christians are called to unite the GOP with Rick Santorum. This is because the Bible says that Mitt Romney opposes Jesus Christ and Christians. Romney is against everything the USA was founded upon,” says pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries. “God promises to fix the economy if we vote for mature Christians (Exodus 18:21),” he adds. “God says that the economy declined for taking God out of government, 53-plus million abortions and homosexual sins,” explains the pastor, who is also author of “Making A Strong Christian Nation.”

The ministry president hopes pastors will rally the GOP for Santorum. He asks Catholics to vote for Santorum, instead of non-Christians. If Catholics voted for Santorum he would have won Ohio by a big margin he believes. “It’s over for Newt Gingrich. Don’t waste your vote. Unite with Santorum to have a Christian in the White House,” he adds.

So Exodus 18:21 is proof “God promises to fix the economy”

Really?

  1. What Bible version is he reading because mine says:

    No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2Tim 2:4

    And I just checked Ex 18:21 and it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with God fixing the economy. Maybe I need to get me one of them new bible versions cause mine is all different

    • No it doesn’t appear to me to have anything to do with God promising to ‘fix’ the economy either.🙂

      Wonder how many of his readers will bother to check it out?

  2. I just love these little “God for Dummies” manuals that these folks put out. They simplify “God’s” message so much that a person doesn’t even need the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit to figure it out. Doesn’t that concept reveal a lot?

    • Yes, it reveals they’ll misapply and misrepresent any scripture to support their agenda. Aha!

      Another one who is good for doing this is David Barton. I was just reading his latest:

      quote….

      In the past, we have chronicled how David Barton uses the Bible, in particular Matthew 20:1-16, to promote an ultra-right-wing economic view by claiming that Jesus opposed the minimum wage and any sort of employment discrimination laws.

      Barton’s interpretation of this passage is particularly absurd since, as we have noted before, Matthew 20 is the famous “Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard” in which Jesus explains “the Kingdom of Heaven is like a landowner” who pays all of his works the same amount, regardless of how much they worked. The point of the parable is that no matter how late in one’s life one comes to Christ, the Heavenly reward is the same; those who embraced Christ on their deathbed will receive the same eternal reward as those who were Christians all of their lives because of God’s generous love.

      On his “Wallbuilders Live” radio program today, Barton once again trotted out this parable, this time to declare that employers have no obligation to be “fair” to their workers and to suggest that Jesus also opposed unions:

      The Bible says [the worker] started grumbling about what happened, grumbling about his wages and Jesus answered and said to him “am I being unfair to you friend? Didn’t you agree to work for a day’s wages? You take your pay and go. I want to give to the one who was hired the same as I gave to you. That’s my choice.” Here it is, Matthew 20:15. “Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money?”

      Now, two things come out here, is if an employee agrees to work for an employer, that’s a contract between the two of them … and Jesus points out that you can go to a different vineyard if you don’t like what I’m paying. You’ve got the free market, you can go choose a different employer. You agreed to work for me for this wage and that’s what you’re going to get. So first you get the inviolability of contracts between employers and employees … and whatever is fair has nothing to do with it. That’s not their responsibility to be fair, it’s “I gave my word, that’s what I agreed to work for.” So Jesus says, as an employer, isn’t my money mine to do with as I please?

      Second point is, where were unions in all this? The contract is between an employer and an employee, not between a group. He went out and hired individually the guys he wanted to work.

      more here: Barton: Employers Have no Obligation to be ‘Fair’ to Workers (and Jesus Agrees)

    • pj, You just don’t get it. Jesus was saying that God gives the POOR (in SPIRIT) that which they could never earn (ETERNAL REWARD) with hard work. Barton is saying the same thing: God gives the RICH (in MONEY) that which they could never earn (more WORLDLY RICHES) with hard work. Don’t you see? Its (almost) the same thing. Just a little twist to make it easier for people to understand (and vote the RIGHT way of course!).

    • Well duh!🙂

      Ahaha…

  3. Lord have mercy on the people who call this man “Pastor”, because they are blind…

  4. Barton apparently missed this warning

    And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in [his] wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger [from his right], and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
    Mal 3:5

  5. Barton forgot Jesus’ other economic tip about spending all of one’s money to invest in pearls, not just any pearl, but expensive pearls! That’s the key to the market right?!!?

    Those who have ears to hear, let them hear
