Who’s the boss?

I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning.

Suppose you’re on President Joe Biden’s executive department staff. So he’s your boss and your job is to serve him in whatever capacity he hired you for, at his direction and behest. No one is above him and no decision you are faced with in his employ is made apart from considering if it is in line with your boss’s will. That’s how it should be, right?

Now suppose instead that your decisions and choices are made with your own preferences and goals in mind, apart from and in opposition to what the president has decreed. You still consider yourself subject to him, you meet with him once a week or so to hear what he has to say, but your actions and convictions demonstrate that he is not your primary concern or authority. How long do you think he’d keep you on?

It’s the same with our position under God’s authority. Self-proclaimed “people of faith” like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and others, demonstrate by their anti-biblical views and actions that in their eyes God is not their boss but merely someone to whom they claim allegiance and expect to receive benefits from. He is not their primary authority or consideration; they themselves are. In effect, they are their own god.

The very first and most important of the Ten Commandments God gave his people is this: “I am the LORD your God . . . You shall have no other gods before me.” Jesus summarized our responsibility to God this way: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.” And what does loving God look like? Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” So true faith in the God of the Bible is above all a submission to him as our ultimate authority.

If God’s will and his commands are not our primary consideration, then can we even claim to have faith? True, biblical faith cannot be separated from a proper fear of God, which is another way of saying, “I recognize and accept that God is Ruler of the universe and I am subject to him in all things.” Without that, our “faith” is mere assent that he exists.

So Biden, Pelosi, Clinton and others, in affirming that killing children in the womb is acceptable, and homosexuality and transgenderism are good and right, demonstrate that their own personal preferences and goals take precedence over God’s will. They are in open rebellion against their Boss. They have made idols of progressivism, acceptance, and power and are submitting to them instead of their Creator. 

Who or what we worship is seen by what we value. If we value “a woman’s right to choose” over God’s right to forbid the unjustified killing of innocent human beings created in his image, we are worshipping the idol of human autonomy, not God.

Joe Biden is a phony, as I wrote about before, and so is every self-identifying Christian whose views and actions align with God’s will if and only if his will just happens to align with their own.

But he’s a “devout” Catholic, we’re told. I don’t want to hear anymore about Joe Biden’s faith. I’ll believe it when I see it.
