Lara Giddings Hates God

Lara Giddings Hates God

Perhaps you read this headline and agree with its sentiment. You could point to our premier’s presence on the radically feminist Emily’s List as evidence. You could, perhaps, refer to the numerous anti-christian pieces of legislation being put through parliament under her watch as further proof (i.e., euthanasia, gay marriage, the abortion legislation and same-sex adoption). However, the evidence that I will bring is far more damning and far more convincing that the Premier of Tasmania does indeed, hate God.

Romans 1:29b-31:

They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

In Romans 1 Paul reveals the heart of those who by their very nature are evil and hate God. They spend their time thinking up new ways to be evil and even their good deeds are an abomination to God.

Wait up a second, that’s a bit harsh!

You might think I’m being a little hard toward Lara Giddings after all, she hasn’t said anything explicitly anti-God has she? I can’t say for sure whether she has or not but it is beside the point because I wasn’t talking about Lara; I was talking about you! And me!

Lara Giddings, last I checked, is human and as a human she shares in one great common trait; an Adamic nature by which we all despise the God who made us and break his righteous laws wherever we can. It’s not that we do evil, but that we are evil. The Apostle Paul explains by quoting Isaiah the prophet:

“None is righteous, no, not one;
no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.
Romans 3:10b-12

No one is righteous, no one loves God. NO. ONE.

We are in the same state as Lara Giddings both geographically and spirtually. We do not love God and cannot love God unless…

UNLESS…

Jesus comes to us and gives us a heart of flesh. It is the regenerating work of the Spirit that enables us to turn to God. Without God’s power to raise us, we would still be dead in our trespasses and sins (Colossians 2:13) but God has made us alive in Christ.

paperDo you *tsk, tsk* and shake your head when you read the headlines? Do you see our politicians as enemies of God and of the Church? Remember that “such were some of you” and that God can take anyone (anyone!) and create in them a heart that is able to love Him. He did it for Abraham, He did it for Paul, He did it for you and He did it for me.

Lara Giddings hates God but so do we all outside of Christ. Pray for Lara, pray for Tasmania and pray that we will see in others what someone saw in us: a sinner who can, by God’s grace, love God.

    Which is why it is so important that the church seeks to please God first and man second. Salvation depends on the receipt of a new heart in order to repent and believe. God in his grace has chosen to use us to,live in a way he can use to draw those whom he has called to himself. “Hence the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.”

    Love Christ and live as you please.

    Euthanasia, gay marriage, abortion legislation, same-sex adoption, surrogacy and immorality. The Australian Labor Party supports all such life destroying policies. And Lara Giddings leads the party in Tasmania! You are correct in your understanding, Isaac.
    To be clear, the ALP (and most of its members) does not welcome pro-life values. Lara will be heading off to the United States very soon, anyway, Isaac – to continue her anti-life work after she loses the forthcoming Tasmanian state election on 15 March 2014. You may recall Lara left the state similarly after her last electoral loss?

    I am very pleased to report there is some good news for voters who support traditional Christian values in our communities in Tasmania!

    Please read the following web-site, which surveys all Candidates for the forthcoming Denison / Tasmanian House of Assembly Election 2014: http://survey.fava.org.au/elections/candidates/10557

    Madeleine Ogilvie of the Australian Labor Party is the stand-out candidate!

    The survey was conducted by Family Voice Australia, which partners with churches as a Christian voice to our nation upholding family, faith and freedom. Family Voice Australia seeks to honour God’s name and advance His kingdom. Family Voice Australia promotes God’s wise ways for a healthy society where marriage is honoured, human life is respected, families can flourish and fundamental freedoms are enjoyed.

    On a less positive note – concerning our current Premier’s presence on the radically feminist Emily’s List, perhaps it may be beneficial to clarify that radical feminism may be defined as a “current” within feminism that focuses on the theory of patriarchy as a system of power that organizes society into a complex of relationships based on an assumption of “male supremacy” used to oppress women.

    Radical feminism aims to challenge and to overthrow patriarchy by opposing standard gender roles and the male oppression of women, and calls for a radical reordering of society. Early radical feminism, arising within second-wave feminism in the 1960s, typically viewed patriarchy as a “transhistorical phenomenon” prior to or deeper than other sources of oppression, “not only the oldest and most universal form of domination but the primary form” and the model for all others. Later politics derived from radical feminism ranged from cultural feminism to more syncretic politics that placed issues of class, economics, etc. on a par with patriarchy as sources of oppression.

    Radical feminists locate the root cause of women’s oppression in patriarchal gender relations, as opposed to legal systems (as in liberal feminism) or class conflict (as in socialist feminism and Marxist feminism).

    Lara Giddings is not alone in her identity as a radical feminist. Sharon Carnes, a dear friend and political associate of the Tasmanian Premier is also noted for her extreme feminist values and policy proposals.

    As Tasmanians prepare to head to the polls to vote for a new leadership and government for our state, may each be mindful of the following words from scripture:

    “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

    Matthew 7:15-20 (King James Version)

    She definitely is ahead of the Libs in Denison. Although so is Alphonse Mulumba. I really wouldn’t know who to vote for in Denison, so I’m glad that isn’t my electorate.
