Former President, Jimmy Carter, 98, recently went into hospice care as he opted to no longer receive any medical care as the aging president inches closer to his last day.
“After a series of short hospital stays, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention. He has the full support of his family and his medical team,” a statement from the Carter Center read.
Jimmy Carter may be very well remembered for many of his charitable contributions and what seems to have been his care for humanity. Carter and his wife founded the Habitat for Humanity project which has helped countless people be able to rebuild homes after disasters or provide homes for the needy. In that, he should be remembered well.
Despite his Southern Baptist roots, Jimmy Carter is just as much of a far-left progressive God-hating Democrat as anyone. In 2000, Jimmy Carter left his Southern Baptist church where he taught Sunday School over the denomination’s stance on women pastors—much like the debate the Southern Baptist Convention is still having today. In 2000, the conservatives in control of the denomination introduced the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 which took a hard-line biblical stance on women serving as pastors.
Jimmy Carter, much like many Southern Baptist leftists today, didn’t care what God says—he only cared about himself.
“I’m familiar with the verses they have quoted about wives being subjugated to their husbands,” he told the paper. “In my opinion, this is a distortion of the meaning of Scripture,” Carter said at the time. “I personally feel the Bible says all people are equal in the eyes of God. I personally feel that women should play an absolutely equal role in service of Christ in the church.”
But that wasn’t Carter’s only rebellion against God, he also didn’t believe that the lives of unborn children were worth protection. According to Carter, though he stated that he was “personally” against abortion, he still fought relentlessly to protect the abortion industry and keep it legal. Imagine making this kind of argument for the murder of toddlers: I wouldn’t personally murder my toddler, but I think if another woman chooses to do so, it should be legal.
After the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Carter’s organization issued a statement lambasting the Supreme Court for taking the right to kill children out of the hands of doctors and mothers.
But perhaps worst of all, Jimmy Carter blasphemed Jesus stating that Jesus would approve of “gay marriage.”
“I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else,” he said during an interview with the Huffington Post, describing himself as a “born-again” Christian who teaches Sunday School at a small church of about 30 people.
Complete and utter blasphemy—describing Jesus as someone who would approve of what God has called an abomination. Carter fits the perfect description by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:32, “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.” There is no way around this. Jimmy Carter worshiped a god of his own creation, a god that would approve of unrepentant sin, a god who would celebrate sodomy.
Carter has already stated that he doesn’t care what the Bible says, he cares more about his own personal feelings. This has been demonstrated in practically every area of his life and ministry through his own words. Will his charitable works and contributions earn him a spot in Heaven? Will his seeming care for humanity get him into Heaven? After all, he screeches the words “Lord, Lord” rather often.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ —Matthew 7:21-23
These works of Jimmy Carter’s, though they seem well-intentioned at times, are like filthy rags in the eyes of God. Jesus himself said, not once, but twice, in Luke 13:3-5, “No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
Yet, it appears that God has been extremely merciful with Carter, giving him 98 years, so far, and a little more time even today, as an opportunity to repent and believe in Jesus—the real Jesus—as his Lord and Savior.
