Another Democrats-In-Heaven-Post Comment

Editor’s Note: Another dear friend, and regular follower, whom I’ve known most of my life (We grew up in the same small Iowa town) commented on my post about Democrats being in heaven. Ronn is a dear brother in Christ as well and we have remained in touch with each other most of our adult lives.

Your friend Scott made some good points in his commentary, and as a fellow conservative, I’m sure we agree on the vast majority of issues.

But in all due respect for his sincerity, I believe he went too far. Before any of us predicts whether or not Democrats or liberals or Catholics or Mormons or gays or abortionists or any other group we feel in strong fundamental disagreement with will be in heaven, we need to take a deep breath and refrain from casting stones pertaining to eternity.

BTWThe Bible has plenty to say about that! We must not be like the proud haughty Pharisees who gave thanks they were saved and not like those sinners over yonder.

Jesus was very critical of those in the church who suffer from the sin of pride. Only God knows what is on any individual’s heart and their personal relationship with Christ. It is not for us to judge another human’s salvation or lack thereof. “Judge not, lest ye be judged!”

Personally, I myself am vehemently pro-life and adamantly opposed to abortion, but that still doesn’t give me the right to condemn to hell every woman who is conscientiously pro-choice.

  1. Very good. Amen and amen. I seem to remember that we are saved by grace through faith, not by our behavior, our opinions about things, or by our political affiliation. For if our behavior can send us to hell then we’re saying our behavior can save us. Neither is true. And I’m not saying that we should give license to sin, or that we shouldn’t stand up for righteousness, but that it has nothing whatsoever to do with salvation.
