“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away” (Isaiah 64:6).
When Jesus died on the Cross, He died for the sins of the whole world. He paid the debt for our sins that we could never pay. Three days later He rose from the dead; He conquered sin and death for those who would trust in Him. We must repent (agree with God that we are sinners) and believe that Jesus died to pay our sin debt. And when we do this, He becomes our Lord and Savior and we are reconciled to our Father in heaven. This is also known as being born again from above.
“Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:5-6).
The Religious Left
There is a group of people who call themselves the “Religious Left.” If they are saying that they follow God and His Word but they are progressive Leftists, then I have news for them. They are not fooling anyone, and since they believe that religiosity makes them acceptable to God – the name “Religious Left” is nothing but an oxymoron.
I would love to hear one of the “Religious Left” explain to a person how to be made right with God. I have a strong feeling that it would begin something like this:
“Well, you see there are many ways to reach God. Different people see God through the lens of Buddha and some through Allah …….etc etc etc.” These people would be sharing New Age teachings, and both teacher and student would miss the mark; and unless the Lord opened their eyes to the Truth, they would both perish.
During the last election, the Left saw the power of the Evangelical vote. You know the old saying: “If you can’t beat them – join them.” But in this case it is a devilish plot to make people believe that one can be pro abortion, pro gay marriage, pro transgender and Israel hating – yet still throw in that word “Religious” and that somehow gives them a outward semblance of holiness.
NOTHING could be further from the truth.

‘Religious left’ emerging as U.S. political force in Trump era
Since President Donald Trump’s election, monthly lectures on social justice at the 600-seat Gothic chapel of New York’s Union Theological Seminary have been filled to capacity with crowds three times what they usually draw.
And Satan could not be happier.
In January, the 181-year-old Upper Manhattan graduate school, whose architecture evokes London’s Westminster Abbey, turned away about 1,000 people from a lecture on mass incarceration. In the nine years that Reverend Serene Jones has served as its president, she has never seen such crowds.
The Reverend is a woman. Oh, I’m shocked!
“The election of Trump has been a clarion call to progressives in the Protestant and Catholic churches in America to move out of a place of primarily professing progressive policies to really taking action,” she said.
These “progressives” in the Protestant and Catholic churches are also known as “lost.”
Although not as powerful as the religious right, which has been credited with helping elect Republican presidents and boasts well-known leaders such as Christian Broadcasting Network founder Pat Robertson, the “religious left” is now slowly coming together as a force in U.S. politics.
Oh, these folks were also there. But now they call themselves “Religious.” (like putting lipstick on a pig – it’s still a pig)
This disparate group, traditionally seen as lacking clout, has been propelled into political activism by Trump’s policies on immigration, healthcare and social welfare, according to clergy members, activists and academics. A key test will be how well it will be able to translate its mobilization into votes in the 2018 midterm congressional elections.
In other words, will Organizing for Action be able to gather these pretenders together and get them ready for battle?
“It’s one of the dirty little secrets of American politics that there has been a religious left all along and it just hasn’t done a good job of organizing,” said J. Patrick Hornbeck II, chairman of the theology department at Fordham University, a Jesuit school in New York.
Actually there has ALWAYS been unsaved people but they never wanted to use the term “Religious” before.
“It has taken a crisis, or perceived crisis, like Trump’s election to cause folks on the religious left to really own their religion in the public square,” Hornbeck said.
Religious progressive activism has been part of American history. Religious leaders and their followers played key roles in campaigns to abolish slavery, promote civil rights and end the Vietnam War, among others. The latest upwelling of left-leaning religious activism has accompanied the dawn of the Trump presidency.
First of all, those who wanted to abolish slavery were “Republicans” and those who marched against the Vietnam War were “Hippies.”
Some in the religious left are inspired by Pope Francis, the Roman Catholic leader who has been an outspoken critic of anti-immigrant policies and a champion of helping the needy.
Oh, for sure – Pope Francis should be the Pied Piper of the Religious Left!
Although support for the religious left is difficult to measure, leaders point to several examples, such as a surge of congregations offering to provide sanctuary to immigrants seeking asylum, churches urging Republicans to reconsider repealing the Obamacare health law and calls to preserve federal spending on foreign aid.
So let me get this straight: Congregations of the Religious Left allowing illegal immigrants to live in their “churches” Umm…..that’s breaking the law. And when they say “Federal spending on foreign aid – that translates to “Keep giving money overseas for ABORTIONS.
The number of churches volunteering to offer sanctuary to asylum seekers doubled to 800 in 45 of the 50 U.S. states after the election, said the Elkhart, Indiana-based Church World Service, a coalition of Christian denominations which helps refugees settle in the United States – and the number of new churches offering help has grown so quickly that the group has lost count.
Wouldn’t it be great if these same Leftists cared as much about babies in their mother’s wombs as they do about illegal immigrants?
“The religious community, the religious left is getting out, hitting the streets, taking action, raising their voices,” said Reverend Noel Anderson, its national grassroots coordinator.
So I guess they realized that the Woman’s marches with obscene hats and foul language wasn’t a big hit……..Yeah, they were pretty gross.
In one well-publicized case, a Quaker church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on March 14 took in a Honduran woman who has been living illegally in the United States for 25 years and feared she would be targeted for deportation.
I have no words for this one.
‘NEVER SEEN’ THIS
Leaders of Faith in Public Life, a progressive policy group, were astounded when 300 clergy members turned out at a January rally at the U.S. Senate attempting to block confirmation of Trump’s attorney general nominee, Jeff Sessions, because of his history of controversial statements on race.
This is a blatant lie.
“I’ve never seen hundreds of clergy turning up like that to oppose a Cabinet nominee,” said Reverend Jennifer Butler, the group’s chief executive.
Yeah, and you didn’t see it now either.

Satan is getting desperate because he knows that he has but a short time.
Why don’t we cut to the chase and call these folks what they really are:
The Church of Satan
If I sound frustrated and angry, it’s because I am.
It’s called righteous indignation.
