Definition of a Liberal or What God thinks of liberals


God himself gave the definition of a liberal when he said in an Old Testament prophecy, “The vile person shall be no more called liberal.” He was speaking of a time to come when vile people will no longer be allowed to hide behind the label of liberal--thinking themselves sophisticated and modern and open minded. But they will be shown for what they really are--vile.


Isaiah 32:5-8
5. The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. 6. For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail  7. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. 8. But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

The word Liberal by itself when looked up in dictionaries has mostly a desirable definition. But the scripture is clear that vile people are being referred to as liberal.  God said there would come a time when the vile would no more be called liberal. This shows that right now vile people are being called liberal and God says he will stop this practice some time in the future.  He also said the churl (rude and stingy) are being called bountiful.

There is another scripture in Isaiah 5:20 that addresses this.  It says, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!"

In Isaiah 32:8 (quoted above) it says  "But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand."  He is saying that the truly liberal or noble person will do truly noble things and stand.  You only have to examine the behavior of the liberals today to see that they are not noble or princely.  They are the people who want abortion on demand which is gruesome and horrid--not noble.  So we know the scripture is true that vile people are being called liberal.

The next time you hear anyone is a liberal, show them Isaiah 32:5 and tell them, "This is what God thinks of liberals."


Do not think that this page is an endorsement of the deeds of the so called "conservatives."  I am not playing politics here.   Politics has descended to the level of gang warfare with political parties being the gangs involved.


I keep hearing the word freedom, but there seems to be less freedom.  Democracy in some nations has become nothing more than the slaves getting to choose and vote for their slave masters.
