The God Is My Co-Pilot, But John McCain Is My Wingman Heresy.

by @ 6:40 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

I noticed an online advertisement today, that basically takes a heretical statement and compounds it. I’m sure you who have learned God’s place is above your own, already know God is not anybody’s “co-pilot”. So you already know how horrible it is to claim the creator of all things is somehow sharing or even under your command. Given somebody has to be in the role of “pilot” and the “God is my co-pilot” statement places God as equal or subservient to man. And we all know, when we get on a plane, we don’t consider the co-pilot as leader, but rather the pilot. Anyway, God made all things, including humans who fly planes, see Psalm 139:13. So He’s way above even “pilot”.

But this advertisement I saw today. Here’s the actual product page. Take a look at this:

John McCain: Wingman 3.5″ Button (blue)

TEXT READS: God may be my co-pilot, but John McCain is my wingman.

God, creator of all things, creator of the creator of the button, gets a “may be” placing at “co-pilot”. And then John McCain gets wingman honors. Since when did God become so common to man, that we treat Him that way? And since when did John McCain become so near deity, that he gets to play the role of “wingman” to God’s “co-pilot” status? It’s just heresy compounded with more heresy.

It just makes me think of scripture like the following.

Romans 1:21 (New American Standard Bible)

21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

People, God should not be spoken of in the ways used by those seeking political power and to peddle buttons! It is heresy, God should not be spoken of in such common ways.

John 18:36 (New American Standard Bible)

36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

Please don’t attempt to reduce God to some earthly rider of a plane, or some politician as the “wingman”. If God is your co-pilot and McCain is your wingman, that would make McCain God’s wingman too. Does God have a button that says “John McCain is my wingman”? Of course not.

Please avoid these heresies, that are used for nothing but political gain.

How easy it will be for people to worship the Antichrist as God, if they today see a political candidate as being near His level. Dear Christians, avoid these things.

    Religious right leads to heresy.

    Remember the old-school heretical lines spouted out by “preachers” and their “sing-song” delivery back in the day:

    – “God is better than Coke, He’s the real thing!”

    – “God is better than Campbells soup, He’s um um good!”

    – “God is better than Timex, He takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin'”

    …and on and on.

    What do you expect from a culture that believes that God serves at their pleasure?

    I grew up hearing my father saying those words. I know it is a lack of fear of the Lord. Most of us were never taught to fear God, our focus was always on ourselves and God might be a second runner up in some cases.

    Failed attempts at making the gospel relevant I imagine.
