That Time When Mark Dever Argued Single-Issue Voting Was Bad Because Republicans Can’t Do Anything About Abortion Anyways

Over the last several years, we’ve heard Evangelical leaders lecture the Church about how conservatives need to make room for the moral legitimacy of voting for Democrats because single-issue voting is bad. The reason, they argued, is that Republicans can’t do anything about abortion anyway, so voting for Republicans on this issue alone, and then judging your fellow church members who happen to be Democrats for not voting the way you do, is immoral.

One of the most biblically hypocritical movements in Evangelicalism is the legitimization of Christians who vote for Democrats. I’ve argued before that if you vote for a Democrat, you probably are not truly a Christian. I suppose there could be exceptions in extreme cases of deception or some form of delusion — but to argue that it’s morally acceptable for a Christian to support or put a Democrat in office, for any reason, is the height of rebellion against God.

Despite the fact that Democrats want to expand abortion, push homosexuality down our throats, and put in place policies of grand theft and redistribution, these Evangelicals, and particularly, Southern Baptists, continued their rhetoric that it is morally acceptable to vote for these people. Southern Baptist president, JD Greear, said it’s great while Mark Dever argued that not accepting the positive morality of voting Democrat is racially divisive. And David Platt went as far as to tell people that they should leave his church if they opposed making room for voting Democrat.

Here are Mark Dever’s words:
