I often wonder how America, ONE nation under GOD, has fallen so far so quickly even as I already know the answer. It’s because we have left God behind and put other priorities ahead of him. I know I’ve been guilty of that. I often worry more about the rising inflation, gas and food prices, and how we’re going to make it to payday rather that giving my worries to God and having faith he will provide. I see Christians who are living in fear of a virus with a 99.9x survival rate simply because our media and government told them to. That manufactured fear allowed the governments to infringe upon our God given rights, which was the intended purpose. God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, he gave us a spirit of power.
I also know Christians and Preachers who actually believe we need to accept the homosexual lifestyle. Obviously they have not read Leviticus. They also believe it’s a woman’s right to choose whether to murder their babies. Didn’t Jesus say “Suffer the little children and forbid them not to come unto me, for to such belongeth to the kingdom of heaven”? Do these people actually think God is pro-choice? Do preachers that “marry” homosexuals actually believe God changed his mind about homosexuality being a sin?
God demands we be tolerant of others, to love they neighbor as we love ourselves. Tolerance however is not the same as acceptance. We should NEVER accept sin. That is how America has gotten to where we find ourselves now. How happy is God about a known Pedophile being “elected” President and that some “Christians” knew and voted for him anyway? How happy is God with the laws being passed allowing babies to be terminated AFTER they are born? How happy is God with us knowing we and our Church leaders haven’t been more outspoken? Maybe we’re too worried about our Churches losing their 501C3 status if they fight these laws?
It’s time we as Christians finally take a stand right now because our God given freedoms and the fate of our country is at stake. It’s not left vs right, it’s not Democrats vs Republicans, it is literally good vs evil. We have nobody to blame either but ourselves for letting our Country get this bad. God warned Isreal multiple times about changing their ways and returning to him before he let Babylon destroy them, just as he warned Sodom and Gomorrah about their immoral behavior.
We as Christians who love God are supposed to be an example and a moral compass. We do that by standing up to evil and fighting sin, not sitting still and accepting it. This Country was founded on Christian principles and God blessed it for a long time. It’s up to us to lead the way again and lead this Country back to God. For God said this.
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
If we are to survive and once again thrive as a nation, we as Christians can’t afford to sit back and be passive. We must stand for Christ and be his light. We must lead by example. It’s time for Christians to stand up and be Christians who live what we believe without fear.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 NIV
