The Biggest Lie in Politics

By Jay Rogers
Published May 19, 2016

Adapted from the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership

“Good people are obligated to support the lesser of two evils.”

Is this true? Should we support the lesser of two evils? No, for four reasons.

4. The lesser of two evils is still evil.

3. It rewards bad behavior. We cannot achieve victory by rewarding politicians who vote against our principles.

2. It demoralizes our own people. “There is no difference between the parties.” Therefore, non-voting is on the rise.

Best Reason:

1. It simply isn’t true. In most cases, the alleged “lesser” evil actually is the “greater” evil because it is more of a danger to liberty and freedom.

If you find yourself, in your own estimation, not supporting a “good” candidate, but a “lesser evil,” you must ask yourself, “Is this lesser evil, really the lesser?”

It isn’t the devil with a pitchfork that you should fear, it’s the one who comes smiling, preaching in a suit and tie, telling you everything that you want to hear despite his past behavior. “No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” ~ 2 Cor 11:14

Which is more evil?

George W. Bush gave us

• Medicare Expansion
• Bailout
• Patriot Act
• No Child Left Behind
• Increased funding to Planned Parenthood.

This led to the loss of House and Senate GOP seats in 2006

Barack H. Obama gave us

• Medicaid Expansion
• Stimulus Bill
• Patriot Act
• Common Core
• Increased funding to Planned Parenthood.

Obama led to The GOP gaining seats. Insurgent candidates such as Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio beat establishment GOP candidates.

The greater evil gives us something to organize against. The lesser evil causes us to accept the status quo and as a consequence lose influence. Remember that once most politicians are elected – especially most Republicans – their goal is to do as little as possible, to take no controversial stands and offend no one, in order to get re-elected. Special interest groups represent voting blocks that politicians use to hold on to their power.

Electing Donald Trump in 2016 would be a giant step backwards for influence of Christian principles at the grassroots level. Imagine Trump with a Democrat Congress negotiating and making “deals.” Now imagine Hillary Clinton with a solid resistance and a growing number of freshman Republicans in Congress who represent conservative Christian values.

The Biggest Lie in Politics is designed to separate legislative session from election season causing voters to forget the results this has always produced in the past.

“To achieve victory, first you must seek it.” ~ Howard Phillips

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Running Time: 195 minutes
