Thoughts on the Election from Doug Phillips

Doug Phillips assures us that there are some things this election won't change:

  1. God is still on the throne.
  2. The Scriptures are still the only rule of action for Christians.
  3. The duty of believers at the ballot box is the same today as it has always been. We may only select leaders who meet the Scriptural requirements for civil magistrate. Leaders need not be perfect, but they must be qualified.
  4. The obedient response of the elect of God to the Lord Jesus Christ and His law-word, not Muslim extremists, political activists, or the results of presidential elections, is the key to national blessing.
  5. The results of the presidential election, regardless of who wins, will work together for the good of the elect of God.

Doug also reminds us of our responsibility as believers:

    American Christians have a biblical duty to pray for, love, and honor the chief magistrate in our nation. We also have a duty to help our President by holding him accountable to his oath of office to uphold the Constitution, and his non-optional, biblical duties to uphold and enforce the moral law of God.

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren" (Romans 8:28-29).

There's quite an interesting backstory on this. Evidently, if you're in Doug Phillips' church, Boerne Christian Assembly, and you don't agree with his political views, you can be excommunicated for it. This is what happened to Jennifer Epstein. In response to Doug Phillips' article she submitted a written rebuttal. In response Doug Phillips demanded an apology. When she asked for what she needed to apologize he said, "You're going to pay for this." He made her pay, along with her entire family. They were excommunicated in what Little Bear Wheeler likened to the Salem Witch Trials.

Personally, I don't understand her continued fixation on Doug Phillips. And as I understand it, his wasn't the only church that had problems with the Epsteins.

Doug Phillips is now selling a sermon, "Biblical Principles Of The Ballot Box." It sounds like it may be good. I wish I could listen to that sermon. Why doesn't Doug just put it on Sermon Audio so everyone can hear it without having to pay $16? That's a lot to pay for just one sermon.

In it Doug talks about supporting "third parties." No surprise there. His father heads up a third party. Isn't it obvious that the only third party he's really talking about is the Constitution Party? When Doug says third party he's not talking about the Green Party, Libertarian Party, Reform Party, etc.

I used to be a member of of the CP. Its motto is "Principle Over Politics." After years of finding myself a disillusioned Republican, I thought I'd finally found my home in the CP. I found out what a bunch of meaningless fluff "Principle Over Politics" really was when Howard Phillips (Doug's father and CP founder) sold out to the Mormons in the Nevada state party over abortion. Mormons believe that abortion is not only acceptable in the case of rape and incest, abortion is strongly encouraged. Mormons call those babies "womb trespassers." They believe those babies have no right to exist. They're encouraged to kill them. Howard sided with the Mormons and said that it was a matter of "state's rights" and that the other CP state parties couldn't impose their will on the Nevada party. The Nevada party was completely out of accord with CP's national platform which is 100% pro-life. Many of us wanted to throw the Nevada Party out. Howard fought hard to keep them in. For years he'd ridiculed the "big tent" philosophy of the Republicans, and he was right to do that. When forced to make a tough decision, he went big tent himself. Like thousands of others, I left the CP in disgust.

I happen to support a particular Republican candidate this time, and no it's not Huck or Romney or McCain or... He happens to be a real Constitutionalist. He's as much of a Constitutionalist as any candiate the CP ever had. I know he won't win the Republican Primaries. So I'll write him in, or perhaps he'll go Independent after he loses the Republican Primaries. I can vote my conscience that way, and I won't have to hold my nose voting for a third-party candidate in a third party that's even more hypocritical than the Republicans.

I still believe in principle over politics.

If Ron Paul isn't the GOP nominee, then I will be writing his name in on my ballot. Period. I don't see myself going back to the CP.
