Vivek Ramaswamy and Evangelical Christians: A match not made in heaven
By Michael Bresciani
August 24, 2023

Without doubt, someone on Fox will, during the first debate, bring up the fact that Ramaswamy took scholarship money from the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship to attend Yale Law School. Also, the $90K used to attend Yale was granted in the same year Vivek made $2.2 million according to his tax returns. While Fox now is showing favoritism for Vivek, it was fox that first reported this fact.

3 Serious Reasons Not to Choose Vivek

First Reason

Some Evangelical Christians are leaning toward Vivek’s candidacy, which for many Christians only lends credence to the fact that Christianity is plunging into apostasy.

Vivek is a practicing Hindu.

Ramaswamy has the right to choose any religion he prefers, but that takes away nothing from the severe warning given by Christ.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Vivek wants the Christians to overlook the polytheism of Hinduism, which is breaking the very first and most important commandment of the Ten Commandments. He cites the “commonalities” of Hinduism and Christianity.

The worship of other gods is idolatry, because first, there are no other Gods, and second because we have been commanded not to worship any other deity.

“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me” (Deut. 32:39a).

We cannot raise a defence on the day of judgment based on similarities.

The truth is that nothing in any world religion compares to the sacrifice made on the cross to cover the sins of men.

If Vivek cannot see that difference, he would surely not see the right way to lead our nation.

Second Reason

Ramaswamy has publicly stated that he thinks all foreign aid should be suspended for Israel by 2028, which is the year the $3.8 billion annual aid package to Israel ends.

The decision to end aid to Israel runs contrary to every doctrine of scripture. Christians are called to aid and support Israel throughout all time. Even though they are still in unbelief and are rejecting the gospel to this day, the day of their national conversion is near. Our support will help to bring that about.

Far more important is the fact that the U.S. is running out of reasons for God to withhold his protection for America. We are taking a headlong plunge into perversity under the guise of diversity. We have supplanted the full knowledge of our iniquities with an unknown quantity now commonly referred to as equity.

We are virtually and literally offering up our children to the demons that now engineer the new trans movement, and after all this, do we think it’s time to have a moratorium on aid for Israel?

There is a fixed meaning to the verse below, that even a child could not miss.

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Gen. 12:2-3).

Third Reason

Vivek Ramaswamy has never held a public office and is a young man who is without political background. He has never faced the enemies and resistance like Trump or DeSantis or many of the other GOP candidates that are on the campaign trail today.

He is floating somewhere between the 30-year-old limit for a Pharisee to start a public ministry, and the sixty year old requirement to become a judge at the gates of the city in ancient Israel.

In modern terms, he is an upstart.

Yes, some of his exuberance and strong stands against wokeism are truly inspiring, but that does not answer the big question.

Could he lead, inspire, and ultimately defend our nation in these troubled days?

In the light of the aforementioned the only answer can be – no!
