Why I Am No Longer A Republican

Today I have resigned from being a Republican of 19 years. I have found that the GOP has become increasingly liberal, while the Lord has caused me to become more biblical (and no, I haven't arrived and yes, I still have sin I deal with as the Lord convicts me of it by His Spirit and Word).

Here are some of my reasons for registering under "Decline to State" (I cannot find one party that reflects Biblical principles across the board):

I do not believe in:

Voting for “the lesser evil” which IS voting for Evil. I cannot do that while holding Christ Jesus over my name.

Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It is violent. It hates the Only True God. It denies Jesus Christ is God. It denies the Trinity. It denies Scripture. It seeks out blood of all who reject its system and thinking. Convert or Die is NOT peaceful.

Big government

Big spending

Raising taxes

Approval or acceptance of homosexuals

Illegal Immigration

Lying about Illegal immigration amnesty by calling it a “visitor” program

Encouraging illegal activity by giving benefits (free health care, education, etc)

Any type of homosexual “rights” that are different from those that are in the Constitution for EVERY American

Same-sex “marriage” even at the state level

Campaigning for Mexicans in Mexico

Compromising with the Democrats on any issue such as education or health care

What I Believe in:

Fearing God, never man

Trusting God, not man

Pro-life EVEN WHEN THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER is at stake. Either I am pro-life totally or not at all. Either I trust God or I don’t.

Smaller government

Minimal taxes

Backing our soldiers

Enforcement of existing laws; in particular that of illegal immigrants

No hypocrisy in enforcing laws for those in leadership versus the common man

No benefits for non- American citizen

No approval of homosexuals on any level

No same-sex “marriages” or anything “like” it on any level

Principles are what guide me in every situation. My principles are from Scripture. If I make loopholes or exceptions, then they are NOT principles but just opinions. Biblical Doctrine is not optional.

Daring to be a Daniel. He was a man of integrity before God and man. He did not compromise for the sake of his life or position. He obeyed God rather than the king. He was consistant behind closed doors as well as out in the open.
