Clear Difference in Political Philosophy of Two Major Partys

Postby philosophicallyfrank » December 16th, 2019, 2:52 pm

For the first time in a long, long time, their will be a major difference between the Democrat and Republican candidates for President in 2020. It appears that also for the first time in a long, long time, the Republican Party will be close to being a unified party. The Democrats will be a divided party but definitely close to being a party of Socialism/Communism. They will be diametrically opposed to each other more so then they have ever been before. Even Richard Trumka, Pres. of the AFL/CIO has said that he supports Trump for re-election because of the totally unrealistic goals of the Democrats. The Republicans will be for the strict interpretation of the Constitution and the freedom & liberty that is the result of the Constitution. The Democrats will be for Socialist/Communist ideas of total gov't. control of everything that we will be allowed to do. Don't forget even Bloomberg when he was mayor of New York; he wanted to outlaw soft drinks that businesses could sell to 16 oz. Even in Western Europe where semi-socialist governments seemed to be flourishing are beginning to run into financial problems even with their very high rates of taxation on all income levels. Especially their health care systems are having more and more financial difficulties and people are having to wait for months to get services. So, next year is a good time to for everyone to do their duty and vote; but, vote intelligently by paying attention to the issues not only for the Presidency; but for all the various offices from the Federal level down to your local offices. Politicians at all levels are too often doing as they want to rather then what their voters want done.

We all should do that and the world would be a much better place. However, we need to rediscover the one true religion that Jesus gave us. There are an estimated 40,000 different denominations and sects and the number continues to grow. It's become "DIY" Christianity (do it yourself). We need to return to Jesus' Church and not whatever we want. #1 Corinthians, Ch. 1, vs 10 says the following:
[10] Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that you be perfect in the same mind, and in the same judgment.
So there is only one true set of teachings of Jesus and therefore only one true Church that teaches what Jesus told us. We need to quit expanding the number of different churches teaching different things and revert back to the Church that Jesus, Himself, founded with Peter. And the Bible, while being without error, is not the sole source of Jesus' teachings and the Bible says so itself. Check out the last verse of the last chapter of the Gospel of John. "Sola Scriptura" is an erroneous teaching: "Beware of false prophets". Martin Luther was not about starting a new church; but, tried to correct the abuses that existed in the Catholic Church at the time. The Catholic Church has two elements: the divine and the human; the Divine is is what Jesus said that He would protect; while the human is always susceptible to the temptations of Satan. That's why the Church has Confession; since we all will at times fail; but, we can pick ourselves up confess our sins and return to the good graces of Jesus. Why confess our sins before a man; because we have to humble ourselves in asking Jesus to forgive us our sins thru another man. Jesus humbled Himself when He went thru His passion and crucifixion for us. It's not asking too much for us to humble ourselves when asking forgiveness of Him. Twice Jesus said that He would protect His Church: Matt, Ch. 16 vs 18 and Matt. Ch. 28 vs 20 and a third time: John Ch. 14 vs 16. Anyone who "claims" to believe in the Bible has to turn to the one true Church that Jesus, Himself, founded. Jesus has never returned to found another church; all of the other so-called Christian churches were founded by men and women not Jesus. Having a "personal relationship" with Jesus can only be achieved by belonging to His Church. One can not pick out one item in the Bible and reject another part. Everything in the Bible has to be taken in the context of the entire Bible. There are no conflicts within the Bible. Your salvation comes only thru His Church.

P.frank admits that Martin Luther wanted to correct the abuses of the catholic church. Why can't he admit, then, that the church was and still is corrupt?

There is a crucial difference between the Catholic Church and all the other "so-called" Christian churches. There are two parts in the Catholic Church; the divine (Matt. Ch. 16 vs 13 - 20) and the human. No other church has a divine part; they were all founded by humans and while professing to believe the Bible; they concentrate of some passages and totally reject others. And humans are susceptible to the temptations of Satan and that applies to Catholics (clergy and laity) as well. That's why the Catholic Church has Confession. We, all, will fail at times; but, we can pick ourselves up, humbly confess our sins and try again. We can not achieve perfection in this life; although, we should try to reach it.
