Should Christians be one issue voters? with Scott Klusendorf | 🎙 Podcast


1280 Posts



The creator of VeggieTales, Phil Vischer, just put out a video causing some Christians to doubt the importance of voting for pro-life candidates. Frank wrote a response to the video that you can access at On this show, pro-life author and trainer, Scott Klusendorf, joins Frank to discuss the flaws in Mr. Vischer’s video and to make the case for life in a concise way. They also respond to some of the most prominent pro-abortion objections and show that Christians do not qualify a candidate on one issue, but we rightfully disqualify a candidate on one issue. Just watch the one minute video at to see why (this is a video that YouTube tried to censor).

    I completely agree that abortion is wrong and I completely agree that we are talking about a human life here, but why do you never talk about pregnancy complications and medical emergencies that make an abortion necessary? Those type of situations should be on the table when talking about abortions. Yes, the baby is a person and yes, the baby is a valuable life, but what about pregnancy complications that make abortions necessary? They do occur, so they should be talked about, however rare they are. Just because these complications are rare does not mean we shouldn't take about them, because we definitely should. I will email you about this, Turek, because I think I can be better detailed in an email than a YouTube comment. So keep an eye out for that email. I'm a Christian and I am pro-life and I want the access to abortions limited and I want women to be better on what pregnancy is in the first place, but I also realize that making abortions completely illegal will cause more problems than it will solve. This is a complicated issue. I feel strongly about this issue for personal reasons that I will lay out in that email. I pray that you will answer my email on a future podcast, because it does need to be talked about. Turek, you're a smart person and I completely agree that abortion is morally wrong, but grey areas do exist here. Expect that email.

    Keep up the good work. God bless.
    ———————————————————— sincerely a nerdy Christian.

    Now let's tell you a story about a man named Jesus:

    A god assaulted, by proxy,
    inseminated a 'virgin' named Mary, in order to bring his son incarnate into our world.
    A cowardly action…
    Mary and her fiance?,
    ….Joseph, had to travel to Bethlehem to register for the census.
    There Mary gave birth to a son of a god.?
    God put a star in the sky to guide people to the baby?
    In a dream God told Joseph to take his family to Egypt.
    Then this God stood by and watched as Herod killed thousands and thousands of babies in Israel in an attempt to kill Jesus. (wow!)

    As a man, God's son claimed that he was God incarnate: "I am the way, the truth and the life," he said.
    This man performed many 'miracles'. He healed lots of sick people. He turned water into wine. These miracles prove that he is God? Miracles??
    But he was eventually given the death sentence and killed by crucifixion.

    His body was placed in a tomb.
    But three days later, the tomb was empty.
    And the man, alive once again but still with his wounds (so anyone who doubted could see them and touch them), appeared to many people in many places.

    Then he ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of his god the father almighty, never to be seen again.

    Today you can have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.
    You can pray to this man and he will answer your prayers.
    He will cure your diseases, rescue you from emergencies, help you make important business and family decisions, comfort you in times of worry and grief, etc.
    This man will also give you eternal life, and if you are good he has a place for you in heaven after you die.

    The reason we know all this is because, after the man died, four people named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote accounts of the man's life. Their written attestations are proof of the veracity of this story.
    This is the story of a Jesus. ""

    Do you believe this story?

    You are Delusional !!

    *However any debate on this is useless – since a god needs to be proven – First.

    However, …. any debate on this is useless, since a god
    needs to be proven – First.

    Thus says the Lord:
    “Stand in the ways and see,
    And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,
    And walk in it;
    Then you will find rest for your souls.
    But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

    also thinking about the rape talk, abortions give sick men pretty much the green light to get away with committing crimes with out having a consequence.

    Man, I get it’s important I do, but I hope they’ll release some more apologetic videos soon that are less political. I already know I can’t vote, I just want this whole political bs to be done for so we can go back to discussing Christianity and how it’s true.

    How important is to know God The Most High? Genesis 1:1 Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus said in response: “I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to young children. 26 Yes, O Father, because this is the way you approved.

    Revelation 14:7 He was saying in a loud voice: “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of judgment by him has arrived, so WORSHIP THE ONE WHO MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA AND THE SPRING OF WATER.”

    Hebrews 1 Long ago God spoke to our forefathers by means of the prophets on many occasions and in many ways. 2 Now at the end of these days he has spoken to us by means of a Son, WHOM HE APPOINTED OF ALL THINGS, and THROUGH WHOM he made the systems of things.

  26. Ephesians 5:8

    John 17:17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. John 7:28 Then as he was teaching in the temple, Jesus called out: “You know me and you know where I am from. And I have not come of my own initiative, but THE ONE WHO SENT ME IS REAL, and you do not know him. 29 I know HIM, because I came from him, and that One sent me. John 5:26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted ALSO to the Son to have life in himself.

    Absolutely not. We’ve got at least 10 issues to consider, maybe more:

    1. Most critical: whether or not a candidate supports the sanctity of life in utero. Infanticidal maniacs like Kamala Harris (who just happens to be Joe Biden’s VP pick) must be avoided like the plague on all Christian ballots.
    2. In second place: whether someone considers the rights of Christians to be superior to the made-up “rights” to sleep with members of the same sex. If they do, good. If not, and if they are bought and paid for by “bake the cake bigot” activists, avoid them.
    3. Whether or not they want to cheat by adding extra seats to the Supreme Court. If they do, that’s swindling — not only a sin (1 Corinthians 6:10) but also a crime.
    4. Whether or not the person misdefines greed as anything other than “covetousness of neighbor’s money.” If they do change the definition of greed from the one I just provided to something else to falsely accuse everyone with whom they come into contact of it, avoid them. Socialism = blatant violation of the 10th of the Ten Commandments because it’s an outward expression of coveting something that is your neighbor’s — namely, their money.
    5. Whether or not that person demands that we give up our security without also giving up theirs. The vast majority of those “no borders, no walls” people have walls around their own properties and live in gated communities. This makes them hypocrites if they don’t tear down their own walls and open their own gates.
    6. How long they’ve been in government without accomplishing anything. If they’ve been members of any of the two houses of Congress and either haven’t done anything for their constituents or, in the worst cases, have done things that represent everything their constituents don’t stand for (that means you, Katie Porter), then they must be avoided at all costs.
    7. Whether or not they change the definition of racism in an Orwellian manner and use self-refuting statements like “all <X> people are racist” all the time, in blatant violation of Galatians 3.28. If they do, they are to be avoided at all costs.
    8. Whether they believe in moral relativism or agree with us that morality is objective, not subjective. If they are the former, then they can’t be trusted.
    9. Cultural relativist politicians also can’t be trusted, for the same reason as number 8. We were commanded by Jesus to “go and make disciples of all nations,” NOT to “let unbelievers from all nations come in and make unbelievers out of you” which is what inevitably will happen if we flood America with unbelievers (especially Muslims) from abroad.
    10. Last but certainly not least, whether or not they support Israel’s sovereignty over those surrounding Israel who want to destroy them. If they don’t, they can’t be trusted.

    Didn’t watch this but it’s not even about the issues this election. Look at the platform. Left = Evil, Right = Good (or closer to it at least). You just cannot vote Democrat as a Christian. And it’s even bigger than D vs R, a vote for D or not voting is a vote for global government, and they are not friendly towards Christians!

    Donny Boy says he's sending the military to "distribute" a untested DNA changing quantum dot mark of the beast tattoo / vaccination that destroys our connection with God and tracks everything we do which we'll have to get in order to travel or buy food and medicine because of an imaginary pandemic, and Dershowitz said that they can physically force everyone to take it! And I know Trump said you'll have a choice, a choice of taking it or going to a FEMA quarranteen / death camp! And the Luciferian government still has 30,000 guillotines and millions of coffin liners that they bought along with billions of bullets during previous administrations.  
      I have lots of info about all this in my playlist titled REALITY 102 for everyone but the faint of heart.
       The first half of the first film has the most important information you have ever seen! You should pray before watching it. God have mercy on us!
       P.S. I disagree with lots of things she talks about concerning scripture in the second half of the film, and she obviously doesn't know her bible has been changed, but maybe God will reveal more truth to her.

    If Democrats and Republicans only had small disagreements on things maybe not, but when one party is for murder of children etc it's pretty cut and dry.
