I am alarmed at how withdrawn many Christians are from the current political posture and direction of America.
Many accuse Christians who are concerned and involved of making idols of a political party or of leaders of the particular party they are supporting. They see politicians and civil government as evil and something Christians should not concern themselves with.
Everything is going to happen just as it is appointed to happen is their attitude. It is as if they believe Christians have no responsibility in this world other than reaching the lost for Christ.
American society is in a steep moral decline. Abortion is no longer a decision of saving a woman’s life but an accepted form of birth control. Even within many so called Christian denominations homosexuality is an open and accepted way of life.
While tolerance is demanded of Christians the intolerance of Christian tenets of faith and of our Savior by another religion is widely accepted and justified by people in high places of government.
While Jesus did say we are in this world but not of this world He never excused us from presenting, defending, and supporting truth and life in this world.
In this world, and especially in this country, we defend our right to teach and practice what we believe through the casting of our vote. Our freedom can be taken away! “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing ” (Edmund Burke).
Christian, you have a responsibility. If you choose not to fulfill your responsibility then when the faithful Christian Church is further attacked over the next four years you will have no right to complain.
Ministers . . . The Church is under attack. Under the current flow of things I perceive over the next four years intensified persecution of faithful ministers and of the Church of our Living God.
Any Church refusing to ordain same sex marriage and not accepting homosexuals into ministry or leadership positions within the church will, at the minimum, have their tax exempt status taken away.
After this, because of extreme taxation and the inability of local faithful assemblies to pay, they will be forcibly closed. Government agents will come. They will confiscate all the Church property and lock the doors. The meeting place will be closed and Christians will be forced, if they are to remain faithful , to meet incognito or in hidden places.
The Christian message is already being labeled as a message of hatred.
Many Christians today desire to see the Church as it was in Acts during the beginning. Careful what you pray for!
Christians . . . Take a stand . . . Support the path you determine best leads to continued Christian freedom in this country.
