A moral difference between the left and right concerns the way that each group seeks to improve our society. Left-wing beliefs are liberal in that they believe that society is best served with an expanded role for government. They have the philosophy and believe in one for all and all for one, looking to government to support everyone, looking to government as your god.
People on the right believe that the best outcome for society is achieved when individual rights and civil liberties are paramount and government power is minimized. Most people on the right are conservatives and believe that the best way to improve society is through the moral improvement of the individual.
Those on the left believe that the way to a better society is always doing battle with society’s moral failings. The left concentrates its efforts on combating sexism, racism, intolerance, Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia, and many other evils they consider wrong. Christianity and the U.S. Constitution are so-called evils they are working to eliminate.
The consequences of these left and right views are that the left is preoccupied with politics as the vehicle for societal improvement, and the right is more interested in fixing society through moral improvement.
Those on the left want spending on social programs and strong regulations on business. Those on the right want less regulation on business and reduced government spending. Those on the left support universal healthcare, and those on the right oppose it and favor competition from private insurance companies. Those on the left want amnesty for undocumented immigrants, and the right oppose it and want stronger borders.
Those on the left favor abortion rights, and the right oppose it. Those on the left support gay marriage, and those on the right oppose it, because such laws conflict with religious beliefs and restrict freedom of religion. Those on the left favor gun control laws, and the right oppose it and support the Second Amendment.
Conservatives have no interest in fundamentally transforming the USA into a one world government controlled by the globalists. Conservatives are against transforming a society that generally believes in God and Christianity into an atheistic and materialistic society which is going in the wrong direction. Conservatives believe that we must work on the moral transformation of each citizen, thus character development should be at the top of our list.
How does the Bible describe those on the left and those on the right? The Bible describes the final judgment in Matt. 25:31-46, “And before Christ shall be gathered all the nations: and He shall separate them one from another. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left” (Verses 32-33). The sheep on the right represent genuine believers in God and following His word. These believe that society is changed through moral improvements and character development. (This group represents about 38% of Americans.)
The goats on the left represent about 23% of Americans which are described as wicked and are always pushing a social revolution against God and Christianity. Very large portions on the left identify themselves as atheists or agnostic.
The bottom line is those on the left follow sin and evil; those on the right follow the moral high road and abide by the principles of God’s word. Those on the left have the Devil as their leader, and those on the right have Christ as their leader.
Who is going to win this battle? Rev. 20:1-6 shows the victory of Christ over Satan!
