It is so disheartening how the vast majority of those wearing the name "Christian" live with their heads in the ground, pretending everything's ok. It's a true statement that "all it takes for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing". We've been proving it in America for decades, and worst of all, the last three years. Wake up America! Wake up Christians! It's far past time for action and I pray not too late. Educate yourself as to the truth of what's happening in America and VOTE ACCORDINGLY before all is lost and we are free no more.
The picture above is from Fox news this morning. The article can be read here. It's not a new issue and there are so very many of similar import. I know we feel helpless, but we aren't, yet. Write your elected officials about things you see that are wrong, things that violate our constitution and our basic moral fiber. Fast and pray for God to extend his amazing patience and for His mercy to help us return America to a nation created for the sole purpose of freedom to worship HIM in any way we choose. As a former president wisely said, (paraphrased) as long as America serves our Christian God, America will be great. The audacity that our government uses our constitutional amendments to "protect" the "right" of citizens to produce pornography and even aspects of terrorism, but completely ignore the constitutional right to freedom of religion, the very first amendment, whether in schools, workplace, funerals or even in the pulpit is outrageous!
This is the first amendment in the Bill of Rights:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..."
My biggest grief isn't so much with a pagan government trying to do these things to Christian American, but rather with lazy, complacent Christians who do nothing, who hide from the truth and deny their true walk with their God. The Bible tells us clearly that we will have to actually put forth effort in our Christian walk, to grow as Christians and to protect the faith, to spread salvation and to serve the one and only true and living God. It was never going to be a matter of say a magic prayer and then rest in a pew once a week until we die and for some inexplicable reason the King of all creation would reward us with an eternity in heaven. Read the book! This is an active, vital, exciting and challenging walk to be in service to Almighty God. He has promised us that if we are actually living a faithful Christian life, we WILL, guaranteed, be persecuted. If you aren't being persecuted, you would do well to review your Christian walk and see if it lines up with the Word of God, which is what will judge all who ever lived in the end.
"Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." 2 Timothy 3:12
Jesus Himself told us: "Remember the word that I said to you, ‘ A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also." John 15:20
The hour is far past to act America! Write, call, pray, fast, talk to those around you, wake your churches to do the same and then VOTE! This one issue is just the tip of the iceberg of the ways our government is taking away our right to be faithful Christians. Look into it. The facts are available. We have even had Christian ministers in American jails for years now simply because they read the Word of God out loud in their public worship services - and still the American Christian church sleeps in it's blissful ignorance with their heads in the ground!
