God Endorses Strong Borders and Nationalism and so Should You, Christian
D.C. McAllister hit it out of the park again this week with her article destroying the claim that voting for Trump is akin to "idolatry." For some reason, there is a small group of Christians working overtime this election to convince the rest of their brethren that a vote for Trump is worse than a vote for Hillary Clinton and those of us who would dare to disagree are in danger of losing our souls. To persuade these Christians, it should be enough to point out that Trump is running on a pro-life platform with a solidly pro-life running mate who has a record of protecting the unborn. He's running against the party of Satan, whose candidate admits on television that a pre-born person has no rights, even up until the moment of birth, and we can and should still rip the baby to pieces if her mother is too inconvenienced. Enabling pro-abortionists in the Democrat Party to continue expanding this death penalty for the innocent cannot be something true Christians support. If you are a Christian who thinks you can vote for a pro-abortion Democrat (or withhold your vote from a pro-life candidate when you know it will benefit the pro-death candidate) without responsibility for your immortal soul you really need to watch Father John Lankeit's homily here for some difficult truth. The short of it? Your soul will be in grave danger. You should not be taking communion. You should be ashamed of yourself and fall on your knees begging for repentance and turn from evil. Amen.
While Trump's pro-life stance is clearly biblical, what about his other big platform issues? The first issue that Trump supports that Christians should embrace is nationalism over globalism. Nationalism is something that the Bible clearly supports. Evidence for this exists in Genesis in the story of the Tower of Babel.
Now the whole earth had one language and few words. And as men migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, "If now, while they are one people, all speaking the same language, they have started to do this, nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do. Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth. (Gen 11:1-9)
This story gives us an important lesson in globalism. God knew that when all the people of the earth get together and unite without Him, it inevitably leads to some very bad crap. We can see this with the European Union and the destruction of what used to be sovereign countries—raping and pillaging, destruction of security, hygiene, safety and sanity. There is a reason Brexit happened. The EU "unity" wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
Without God, unity can merely become a despotic source power that is abused. Consider atheistic Communism and secular socialism. Concentrated, centralized power can be a serious problem indeed, if God is not its center and source. Meditation by Mgr. Charles Pope, Archdiocese of Washington
The book of Revelation warns of the end of times where a great power will be given "authority" over "every tribe and people and language and nation." (Revelation 13:7) This is not a good thing. Most Christians are in agreement that consolidated authority over the globe brings terrifying judgments (bring on the giant stinging insects, fire rain, blood rivers, and mass beheadings!). It is interesting to me that God has warned through Daniel and the apostle John that we should be wary of any figure or figures who try to centralize governments. Both parties in America have been working toward a centralized world government for many years. The fact that Donald Trump is a lone voice calling for a renewed American nationalism that rejects globalism makes my Christian sensibilities sing, glory be to God, let heaven and earth rejoice! (And it should be noted that he makes the globalists act like vampires doused in holy water, melting and screeching obscenities..so he's clearly doing it right.)
