Mike Pence misuses the Second Greatest Commandment in incremental support of adult homosexuality & transgender surgery for adults
This is what much of America’s evangelicalism endorsed. Rather than earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 3), they earnestly contended for a pro-homosexual ticket. I’m not against those that voted that way, I am empathetic toward their reasoning. But to contend for a President and not the faith is idolatry. But hey, “he’s a lesser of two evils,” they said. But I say evil is still evil.
When Pence was not blaspheming God by coddling & praising two sodomites in the White House, he was desecrating essential Doctrines with his heretical soteriology. And now, as a Presidential hopeful, he molests God’s second greatest Commandment.
In the below video, though Pence is against gender transition for children under the age of 18, via chemical or surgical treatment. But he again cowardly and incrementally capitulates to an approval of adult homosexuality. The Bible calls this being double-tongued or double-minded.
Pence’ abuse and misuse of the second greatest Commandment reminds me of all those pastors during Covid (i.e. Hinn & Buice). Who twisted this same Text, telling everyone that the best way to “love your neighbor as yourself” was to Unbiblically and sinfully close your churches, “stay at home,” and/or to wear a face diaper.
The love that Pence speaks of is not a Biblical love, but it is a worldly, sensual, self-love. Back to the Second Greatest Commandment.
The following two Commandments are not exclusive, they are mutually inclusive. In other words, if you falter in the second Commandment, you are not Biblically loving God.
The Bible says in Matthew 22:36-40,
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
These two Commandments are a covenantal summarization of the Ten Commandments. The first half being vertical, or, our duty to God. And the second half is being horizontal, or, our duty to man. We cannot, and are not loving God with “all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” if we are sinfully accepting, tolerating, congratulating, acquiescing to, or celebrating the sins and lawlessness of the horizontal.
Though every Christian falls short (me included), but Jesus told us in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” And if we were truly to love God Biblically, we would love what God loves and hate what God hates.
