Deceiving Christians

Mark Charles Hardie left another comment claiming as a candidate for President he is supportive of faith based Conservatives. The thing is he left the comment on this post: “This is Why we Call the Gay LobbyFascist!” Even that post was made in March 2015, Mr. Hardie’s first comment was made on August 7, 2015. Mr. Hardie’s comment was supportive of the homosexual agenda alluding to supporting same-sex marriage for after all, Jesus told us to love our enemies. Also he made it clear he was running for both the Senate to replace Barbara Boxer in California and as the Democratic nomination for POTUS.

As a Biblical believing Christian Mr. Hardie’s assertion that the Jesus paradigm of love your enemies was a poppycock stand in validating a homosexual lifestyle. I also questioned the validity of his candidacy for either the Senate or the Presidency. As of now I could not find a campaign website to examine his politics so I relied on searching out the few places asserting he is running for Office and that had some profile info. Frankly the info is a bit fantastic to believe as credible but there is a nagging truth he is a blogger for the Left Wing favorite the Huffington Post. I have no doubt this adds an air of credibility among Lefties (aka Progressives, Democrats, Marxist Utopians, et al).

I dismissed Mr. Hardie’s first comment with this post: “Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love yourEnemies’?” This was posted on August 8, 2015.

Mr. Hardie’s second comment was not post on the 8/8 post but rather on 8/8/15 on the same location as his first comment but after my response to his first comment with a standalone post. Ergo, I am uncertain if Mr. Hardie actually read my dismissive post. Here is that second comment in order for you to ascertain for yourself if read my response or if he is simply proclaiming his Christian faith (which is a bit of a mystery if you take a look at “Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love your Enemies’?”):

SUPPORTING CONSERVATIVE VALUES AND INSPIRING PEOPLE OF FAITH

This is a message from Mark Charles Hardie. I am a candidate for president of the United States and United States Senator representing California.

First, I want to inspire conservative people of faith. It’s vital to have faith in God. I know that keeping a strong faith and strong trust in God can protect people from spiritual attack by the wicked.

Second, I do not believe that Christians should compromise their beliefs. Instead, I think that Christians should “return to Christ”. I think Christians should return to Christ-like love and self-sacrifice. However, Christians should not be weak. Instead, Christians should seek to “cast out demons” and rid the world of Satan. I believe that Satan is defeated by the blood of Jesus.

Finally, I will proclaim the majesty and power of God for the rest of my life. (Minor editing performed)

You see, I am having a bit of a credibility issue with Mark Charles Hardie. Mr. asserts something that every Biblical Christian would shout “Amen” or “That’s good preaching”. For my point let’s re-read a portion:

“First, I want to inspire conservative people of faith. It’s vital to have faith in God. I know that keeping a strong faith and strong trust in God can protect people from spiritual attack by the wicked.

Second, I do not believe that Christians should compromise their beliefs. Instead, I think that Christians should “return to Christ”. I think Christians should return to Christ-like love and self-sacrifice. However, Christians should not be weak. Instead, Christians should seek to “cast out demons” and rid the world of Satan. I believe that Satan is defeated by the blood of Jesus.” (The BOLD emphasis is mine)

This is the same guy that wrote:

“… “Gay People Belong To God”. In other worlds, I meant to say that God Almighty created all human beings–both gay and straight. Jesus of Nazareth says, “Love your enemies”. I think Jesus wanted to open our hearts to people who may seem different. I was speaking of radical Godly compassion.” (Quoted from Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love yourEnemies’?)

Although Mr. Hardie is implying homosexuals are the same as heterosexuals in the eyes of God Almighty. I do not agree with that sentiment. God specifically calls homosexuality an abomination; however doesn’t use a singular descriptive word, rather God is explicitly descriptive:

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18: 22 NKJV)

In the HuffPo blog post Mark Charles Hardie is doing a good thing; viz. condemning violence against homosexuals because of their sin-life choice. Old Testament justice according to the Law of Moses given by God Almighty proclaimed a death penalty for breaking this commandment. God did NOT endorse torture which is what occurs when gay-bashers commit violent acts against homosexuals. BUT thanks to Jesus Christ the Son of God we are no longer subject to the penalties and curses of the Law of Moses because faith in the risen Lord delivers those who believe in Christ.

It has taken a few centuries for the Scriptural view to catch up with Christian practices. Death in this life is no longer a penalty for sin. Sin opens people up to – regardless of faith in Christ or not – to the consequence of separation from God. The degree that God-separation manifests in this life is between God Almighty and the individual committing sin. The Word of God does teach us that black-hearted unrepentant sin will manifest in the Last Judgment. Thus I pray for homosexuals for all humanity has in one way or another fallen short in matters of sin until the Return of Christ Jesus.

BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN I WILL STAND WITH VALIDATING A HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLE which is still an abomination in the sight of God. Violence is wrong but so is homosexuality.

Thus even though Mark Charles Hardie is condemning gay-bashing, he also implying that homosexuality is a practice that must be accepted in our culture. Our culture’s Christian heritage has slowly been whittled away by a Leftist agenda which exemplifies Secular Humanism as superior to God’s Word. Although I am increasingly in the minority opinion in our representative Republic, it is my belief that the Christian paradigm as stated in the Scriptures is superior to Secular Humanism. Hence the words of Mr. Hardie in his February 2015 HuffPo post does not match what he is telling Christians in his first comment nor in his second comment I cross posted above:

“…

Today, as I reflect upon the pain inflicted on this particular gay man, I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice.

I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.

My proposal calls for the creation of “California LGBT Police Departments” throughout the Golden State. These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers. The goals of these proposed “LGBT Squads” are to better serve communities while minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence.” (Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right; By Mark Charles Hardie; The BlogHuffPost Gay VoicesHuffington Post; 02/25/2015 3:56 pm EST – Updated: 04/27/2015 5:59 am EDT)

Mark Charles Hardie’s HuffPo post simply DOES NOT line with the words used in both his comments. His assertions and proposals are simply ungodly and abominable in the sight of God. It is my opinion Mr. Hardie wants Christians to compromise their beliefs. He is either lying to Biblical Christians or he Lying to Homosexuals or he is lying to himself. AGAIN this is not a guy that deserves a vote especially from Biblical believing Christians.

Holy Scriptures for Mark Charles Hardie and Believer’s in Christ to Consider

18Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘I am the Lord your God. 3According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. 4You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the Lord your God. 5You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord.

22You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18: 1- 5, 22 NKJV)

And New Testament

Matthew

17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.19Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

38“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’[a] 39But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

John

8But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2Now early[a] in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught[b] in adultery, in the very act. 5Now Moses, in the law, commanded[c] us that such should be stoned.[d] But what do You say?”[e] 6This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.[f]

7So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[g] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[h] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her,[i] “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[j] Has no one condemned you?”

11She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and[k] sin no more.”

12Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (Matthew 5: 17-19, 38-39, 43-46; John 8: 1-12 NKJV)

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!


Sodom_and_Gomorrah by John Martin

Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.” (Bold Text Editor – Mark Charles Hardie quoted)

 

Now that is a quote of Mark Charles Hardie considering the very Words of God contradict that homosexual activist thought:

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.

 

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. 26 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), 28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. (Lev. 18: 22-29 NKJV)

 

Thank God we longer live under the Old Covenant for the penalty for disobeying God then was physical death by execution. Thank God we live under the New Covenant in which the sacrificial Blood of Jesus delivers humanity from the authority of Satan’s domain and transfers them to the Kingdom of God’s dear Son Jesus Christ. Sins are forgive in Christ and the penalty of violating the Old Covenant are remitted in Christ. This means unrepentant to the end humans are in Second Death (See Also HERE) danger of eternal damnation separated from the mercies, glory, presence and benefits of God’s Kingdom. ONLY believing in the Redemptive/Resurrection work of Jesus Christ saves any human from the Second Death.

 

AND YET the mercy and Grace discovered in the New Testament Word of God still testifies that homosexuality is an unacceptable abominable lifestyle.

 

4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. (2 Peter 2: 4-11 NKJV)

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

 

32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1: 18, 24-28, 32 NKJV; But you should read the entire Romans chapter one-NKJV)

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!

By Matt Barber

March 10, 2015

EagleRising.com

 

While they always disguise it behind the euphemistic language of “tolerance,” “equality” and “social justice,” on occasion the homofascist left will admit to its designs on fascism. There are some who doubt those of us who have long warned that many homosexualists intend to compel, through any means possible (up to and including physical force), Christians and other dissenters to fully surrender to their radical homosexual activist agenda.

 

Mark Charles Hardie, a Huffington post columnist and 2016 candidate for the California Senate, is helping to make our point. In a February 25 column headlined, “Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right,” Hardie goes full Rainbow Shirt. Under the pretext of “minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence,” he shares that he has submitted “an innovative proposal” to the California State Senate to create “LGBT Squads” to enforce the “gay” agenda.

 

“My proposal calls for the creation of ‘California LGBT Police Departments’ throughout the Golden State,” he writes. “These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers.”

So much for ending “discrimination” based on “sexual orientation.” Heterosexuals need not apply. In order to earn your pink, taxpayer-funded jackboots in this lavender brute squad, you must possess an aberrant sexual appetite for members of the same sex.

 

Hardie then assumes the persona of Martin Luther King Jr.’s evil twin.

“I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.”

 

Wow. Sodomy-based “marriage,” something that the very almighty God to whom Hardie refers has expressly called “an abomination,” is now, somehow, a “fundamental human right,” which He has “bestowed.”

 

The cray cray continues: “I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice. I now understand that LGBT communities worldwide must be empowered with the weapons to fight for justice.”

 

To be clear, Hardie, a former staff attorney for CA governor Pete Wilson and “public affairs intern” for Senator Barbara Boxer, is not calling for metaphorical “weapons” to enforce the “gay” agenda. He means weapons weapons. You know… guns.

“Today, in a major step towards fulfilling this lofty dream of social justice, I submitted an innovative proposal to the offices of California State Senator Mark Leno and California Assembly Member David Chiu,” he continues. According to Hardie, in order to enforce his homofascist version of “social justice,” armed “LGBT squads” are “vital.” “[I]t is also vital for LGBT communities to wield police power backed by the force of law. In other words, we must not only demand ‘gay rights,’ but we must also demand ‘gay power.’”

 

Yikes.

Hardie concludes by dedicating his column to “the memory of Matthew Shepard.” Shepard has become a bit of a mythological figure in our culture. He is, ironically, the poster child for “anti-gay hate crimes.” I say ironically because, while the mainstream media perpetuated the myth that Matthew Shepard was murdered as a result of “homophobia” during the commission of an “anti-gay hate crime,” it has now been revealed that, in fact, Shepard was a young, HIV positive crystal meth addict who was in a homosexual relationship with two of his drug dealers. These fellow “gay” druggies brutally (and tragically) murdered him during a drug deal gone bad. They are both serving life sentences for their crimes. (Bold Text Editor’s)

 

And so here we are. A California senate proposal for armed “LGBT squads” built upon the phantasmic foundation of the world’s most famous “anti-gay violence” myth.

 

What could possibly go wrong?
