I haven’t been posting much of late and one of the main reasons is that I am struggling with just exactly what I want to post and what I should be posting. One the one hand I want to call attention to the actions of the “powers that be” and do my (tiny) part in rallying opposition to their destruction of our nation, our constitution and our founding principles. On the other hand I am hesitant to fan the flames of division that are tearing our nation apart.
The Bible teaches that I should put aside the concerns of the world, focus on Jesus Christ and spreading the Gospel. At the same time, we are not supposed to stand by and ignore the evils of the world. I have been praying on this for several and I think I have come to a place of clarity. I will continue to pray on this to ensure that my point of clarity is correct.
If Christians had united to stand against the rise of the Nazis and the Bolsheviks it is possible many millions of lives could have been saved. I believe we are at a similar point in our nation’s history. If we do not make a stand not only will our nation, constitution and founding principles be washed away but many thousands will likely meet their end and the Gospel will be subverted and suppressed.
So, I believe speaking out is not only a secular duty but a duty of my faith to speak out against the path our nation is on and the forces pushing us down that path.
“Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.”
Stay alert, stay prepared, stay safe and pray for our nation.
