In a previous article told you about E. Ray Moore, the true Christian conservative candidate for South Carolina Lieutenant Governor, who is calling for parents to remove their children from the government education system and supports Christian, private and home school education without any strings tied to state or federal funding. “We cannot win this war we’re in as long as we keep handing our children over to the enemy to educate,” Moore said in April at a Liberty Rally in South Carolina. I recently spoke to Mr. Moore to have him expound upon his platform.
One of the main reasons for this failure is theological, including a refusal to follow long-established biblical principles characteristic of the evangelical movement in other arenas. Sola Scriptura should be followed in the realm of public policy and politics as well as doctrine.…But no, many Christian Right leaders are supremely pragmatic and operate under the lesser-of-two-evils approach when deciding between candidates and issues. . . .As Paul says in Romans 10:3, it’s a case of “Going about to establish their own righteousness, but have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.”…It grieves me to say it, but it appears that many of our Christian Right and pro-family leaders have been naïve and vulnerable to the con artistry of the political establishment in Washington, and especially of the Republican Party. The GOP now has a virtual lock on the Christian and pro-family voter, while doing little to further their agenda except dropping rhetorical crumbs from the table from time to time.
