A very interesting narrative is going on in the general election this year and it has to do with who is deplorable? Deplorable as defined means: Deserving strong condemnation. Synonyms of Deplorable: disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, unworthy, inexcusable, unpardonable, unforgivable. It also means: Shockingly bad in quality. Synonyms of Deplorable: lamentable, regrettable, unfortunate, wretched, atrocious, awful, terrible, dreadful, diabolical. In a more simplistic definition, deplorable is a very, very bad description to be given to any person.
Now, in the political world, deplorable is what each party wants to call each other every election cycle. Republicans call democrats wicked and immoral. Democrats call Republicans racists, sexists, homophobes, and xenophobes. If I were allowed to bring judgment upon the guilty I would say both parties are guilty up to their proverbial necks. Only God will render what punishment will be allotted for those who think and act this way.
In the religious world in which I live and abide, a deplorable carries a completely different meaning. Deplorable simply means an abomination: a thing that causes disgust or hatred. Now, for all the people who think that they can say and do whatever crosses their minds, listen well.
Homosexuality is an abomination and thus is deemed deplorable. This is not homophobia. No! It is a deadly sin. Abortion is an abomination and thus is deemed deplorable. Adultery is an abomination and thus deemed deplorable. Fornication is an abomination and thus is deemed deplorable. Racism is an abomination and thus is deemed deplorable. Sexism is an abomination and thus is deemed deplorable.
Unlike Mr. Trump who encourages his followers to hate non-white people under the guise of “Anti-political correctness”, Christians cannot and must not act or think this way. Women cannot be slandered and demeaned because they are the weaker sex. All such actions as these are rightfully called deplorable. Mr. Trump will pay his debt in hell for encouraging hate groups like the KKK, Alt-Right, White supremacist, and skin heads to say and do hateful things. If you are a Christian, please refrain from such actions as these, for you are endangering your own soul by doing so.
Mrs. Clinton gives her followers the right to engage in sinful acts such as being gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. All these acts are an abomination before God and should not be encouraged, but discouraged. She also gives right for women to have abortion which is an abomination. To be fair, Donald Trump also is in favor of the LGBT community and gay marriage and rights, and has been on both sides of Roe vs Wade (Abortion) throughout his life. Nevertheless, these are deplorables.
The fact is, most all Americans are pure deplorables. America is filled with wretched people, and yet they are so wicked they don’t even know it. What is sad is many so called Christians are just as deplorable. Do you know how many adulterers are in the Lord’s church? One too many! Do you know how many fornicators are in the Lord’s church? One too many! Do you know how many liars are in the Lord’s church? One too many! Do you know how my racists are in the Lord’s church? One to many! Do you know how many greedy are in the Lord’s church? One too many! Are there gays in the Lord’s church? Most likely. Are there Christian women who have abortions who are in the Lord’s church? Most likely. I am not worried about the deplorables of the political world, but rather the deplorables in the Lord’s church.
When it comes to politics, no one has the moral ground to stand on. Deplorables will vote for deplorables. Very few Americans would vote for a real Christian who stands on the Word of Truth as their platform. Therefore, when it comes for your time to vote, vote for the person who personally is less deplorable and don’t expect moral values to proceed from them. Why? Because they are deplorable!
When it comes to Christianity, there is a moral ground to stand on: It is the perfect Word of God. God is perfect, Christ is perfect, the Holy Spirit is perfect, and we can be perfected if we abide in God’s perfect Word (Jn 8:31,32 f; Matt 5:48). If we obey the gospel of Christ; If we continue in the doctrine of Christ and his apostles; If we endure trials and tribulations; If we do these things, we will not be judged deplorable. Thus, the opposite of deplorables are the saints of God. However, anyone who rejects the gospel and doctrine of Christ are deplorable, and will be cast into the lake of Fire with Satan and the false prophets (Rev 20:15).
