The danger to the gospel comes however in that most "Christians" consider
Catholicism to be the same as Christianity and assume that we have similar
doctrines. This is false and ultimately the lie that the devils of Rome would
have us believe and has made significant and unholy inroads with.
As proof of these unholy inroads into the minds of Christians consider this
quote from a woman that is a typical belief held by many evangelicals today.
"I'm a Christian and [Romney] is a Mormon," said Tamara McGhee, 45, a teacher
from Douglasville, Ga., who remains undecided between
[Newt] Gingrich and
"That may create some bias with me because we have very different religions."
The danger here (and unfortunately most ubiquitously) is not in her correct
conclusion that Mormonism is not Christianity, but in her incorrect conclusion
that Catholicism is Christianity and therefore a safe vote. She is concluding
like most evangelicals that Catholicism is the same religion as Christianity.
Thus the danger. When a works-based abominable religion such as
viewed and understood to be true Christianity, the gospel [see Justice of God] is in trouble.
And when pope Santorum continues to push this agenda that they are the same, it
becomes more and more ingrained and more and more dangerous.
Therefore for the sake of the gospel of salvation by faith alone in
Christ alone (even at the expense of the country), if I were forced to choose between a wolf
that looks like a wolf (Romney) over wolves in sheep's clothing (Gingrich and
Santorum), I would choose the wolf that looks like a wolf.

Thank you for your email. As important as it is, protecting people from false gospel falls under the
"second" commandment, while protecting the Lord's honor falls under
Jesus' "the first and great commandment":
Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?" Jesus said to him, "‘You
shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with
all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like
it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’" (Matthew 22:35-39)
We cannot and must not prioritize protecting people from false gospel if it
requires us to side with someone who calls
Jesus and Satan
brothers. There is no
greater blasphemy and attack on the honor of our Holy Lord and Savior, Jesus, whom we are to love
first and foremost as above.
