One huge reason our country is losing its way and its morals is because so many of Gods people are silent as to the wrong doing of our leaders. Instead of being a light to the world we are silent and therefore complicit. Just like the man who rapes an innocent child, rather than trying to stop it we decide to get on our knees and pray for the one who rapes. Even civil law teaches silence makes one guilty of participating in the crime.
Of course if you are a Christian who believes socialism and such is not a Biblical issue and that the Bible is silent as to the direction our country should go my only suggestion is that you study Gods word much more.
Time after time Gods word commands Christians to speak out against wrong doing. Few will read this so I will not take the time to cite many Biblical examples but if you are a Christian you should know better.
No where in the Bible does it tell Gods people to just be nice and be pushovers. We are not called to be nice, sweet and understanding of wrong doing. We are called to be Biblical. We are in a war according to the Bible with Satan who makes his home in high places.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
Where do you think those high places are, the garden club? The longer I am a Christian and the more I study Gods word the more I hate sin and believe we as Christians should cry out against the wrong doing our leaders are perpetuating on this once great nation that has been blessed in the past by Almighty God.
Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1 Timothy 5:20
This my friend is the opposite of being silent. If Nathan the prophet would have been silent regarding David’s sin what would have become of David and Israel? Instead Nathan the prophet pointed his finger in the face of David and said, “Thou art the man.” It just so happens that when all this took place David was the King of Israel.
Be silent to wrong doing all you want as to our leaders in high places and you make the Devil smile.
You want God to bless our nation? You want God to shower His blessing and I tell you it will never happen if Christians insist on being silent, not just in their prayer closets but openly against those leaders who lead us down the path of wrong doing. More later as I recall…….
