This blog may be considered offensive and blasphemous to some but I urge you to keep on reading. No Offense to Russell Moore. He is one of the conservative evangelicals who spoke out against the evils of Donald Trump and is being attacked for it.
Rev. Moore, I respect you. The alt-right and many conservatives may hate you but remember, they hated Jesus first. Remember Luke 6
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
The alt-right has risen. It has the ear of the president. Personally I don’t like the word Alt-right. It makes this movement seem more benign than it is. It is white supremacy. It is nationalism. It is bordering on fascism. But the media calls it the alt-right.
They have added words to political lexicon over the last year and I will address them through a Christian lens.
The first is cuck or cuckservative. This comes from the word cuckold. The definition of a cuckold is the husband of an adulteress, often regarded as an object of derision.
They use it against sell out conservatives who actually want to do some good for the nation like Jeb Bush or John Kasich. They say that they sold out to liberals and are emasculated.
This brings me back to that question. Is God a cuckold? And the possible offensive answer is yes. God loves us with an undying love. But He won’t force himself on us. Throughout time, he saw people claiming to be His fornicating with idols like Moloch, Asarte, Appolo, Diana.
The Bible has used the imagery of an unfaithful wife to describe an apostate nation. His prophets used this description to describe ancient Israel.
Ezekiel 16 is a heartbreaking chapter describing how God found the Israelites, loved them, made them strong and beautiful.
6 “‘Then I passed by and saw you kicking about in your blood, and as you lay there in your blood I said to you, “Live!”[a] 7 I made you grow like a plant of the field. You grew and developed and entered puberty. Your breasts had formed and your hair had grown, yet you were stark naked.
8 “‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your naked body. I gave you my solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Sovereign Lord, and you became mine.
9 “‘I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. 10 I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments. 11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, 12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was honey, olive oil and the finest flour. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen. 14 And your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendor I had given you made your beauty perfect, declares the Sovereign Lord.
God loves us. God wants what is best for us. God makes us the people that we should have been without the taint of pride and sin. We are beautiful to God. He loves us. But ancient Israel let pride and lust lead her astray
15 “‘But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute. You lavished your favors on anyone who passed by and your beauty became his. 16 You took some of your garments to make gaudy high places, where you carried on your prostitution. You went to him, and he possessed your beauty.[b] 17 You also took the fine jewelry I gave you, the jewelry made of my gold and silver, and you made for yourself male idols and engaged in prostitution with them. 18 And you took your embroidered clothes to put on them, and you offered my oil and incense before them. 19 Also the food I provided for you—the flour, olive oil and honey I gave you to eat—you offered as fragrant incense before them. That is what happened, declares the Sovereign Lord.
God had prophet Hosea marry a prostitute named Gomer to show the pain that He feels when he sees His children throwing their adultery in His face.
The same is happening today. We have “evangelical Christians” who may have once loved Christ but are laying down with other lovers.
It would be one thing if they cast off God and said “I don’t love you or need you anymore. I found a better and stronger love”. That would be bad enough but what American evangelical Christianity does is worse. She still claims to love God and fight for “Christian” values all the while opening their legs or going on their knees for the oil industry, the NRA, for racial and national pride.
They do this knowing that God is watching. They throw their wanton adultery in their maker’s face. They do this while they go to prayer breakfasts and talk of making America Christian again.
So, back to the question. Is God a cuck? Is God a cuckold. I believe he is. But what is worse, The Husband who loves his wife and knows that she is sleeping with other men under his nose or the unfaithful wife who opens her legs to every Tom, Dick, or Harry that will promise them a campaign donation or a gift.
I think the answer is obvious.
