Christians are being attacked on multiple fronts here in America. Our own government, which was built upon the rock of God’s fairness, equality, faith, and morals is attacking us.
Allow me to provide a few examples: In 2006, State Senator Obama visited Europe and the Middle East, where he made a series of speeches. Before his final speech, Obama stood next to Turkey’s President and stated that in the US, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.” Perhaps this is what recently led Michelle Obama to say that President Obama ”knows we are going to have to change our traditions and our history”. I wonder if some of that history-changing has to do with denying that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles created by God-fearing men?
In a written statement, the Pentagon told Fox News that “religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense” and that “court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis, and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the outcome in specific cases”. A consultant that has been brought in to help the Pentagon develop new policies on religious tolerance says that sharing the gospel with someone else is like “rape” and that he would like to see “hundreds of prosecutions to stop this outrage”. His name is Mikey Weinstein, and he is the president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. In the past, he has described Christians as “human monsters” and “enemies of the United States Constitution“. He says that sharing the gospel in the military is “sedition and treason” and should be punished as such. Why in the world would such a man be brought in to advise the Pentagon about religious tolerance?
Obamacare would like to force us into buying a product that we as Christians (the overwhelming majority of) do not want to be a part of, the morning after pill (abortion pill). If we pay for Obamacare, we’re paying for the pill. In Venice, Florida authorities are cracking down on Shane and Marlen Roessiger for holding a Bible study in their home on Friday nights. The meetings consist of at most 10 people gathering for a time of prayer and Bible study, but authorities in Venice insist that this is a “zoning violation” and Shane and Marlen Roessiger are being threatened with a fine of $250 per meeting. These are just a few examples of our own government waging War against Christians.
If that alone doesn’t bother you, how about some statistics: In a survey by Lifeway Resources that some 54,000 plus Americans between the ages of 18-29 contributed to show, 65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either. 65% rarely or never attend worship services of any kind. 67% don’t read the Bible or any other religious texts on a regular basis. That is a solid two-thirds of American young adults who don’t even have the slightest connection to traditional Christianity. One survey conducted by the Barna Group found that less than 1 percent of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 23 hold a Biblical worldview. The Barna Group asked participants in the survey if they agreed with the following six statements….
1) Believing that absolute moral truth exists.
2) Believing that the Bible is completely accurate in all of the principles it teaches.
3) Believing that Satan is considered to be a real being or force, not merely symbolic.
4) Believing that a person cannot earn their way into Heaven by trying to be good or by doing good works.
5) Believing that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth.
6) Believing that God is the all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the world who still rules the universe today.
Less than 1 percent!!! That as an American, as a Christian is a hard pill to swallow. Never before in U.S. history has an entire generation rejected the gospel as much as the current one has.
Just as scary, from 2000-2010 the number of muslims and muslim mosques in America has literally Doubled, all while the number of devout Christians has dropped. The same is happening in Europe, where is quite possible by 2020 that Muslims will out number Christians.
Now for a global ray of sunshine, the number of Christians in countries such as Africa, Asia and Egypt have risen considerably in the last 10 years. Hopefully it’s a sign that the work of Lottie Moon and other women and men like her is paying off. As I hope it would, given the dues they’ve paid.
As for America’s youth, they’re not stupid. They know what is real and what is not. The Church in America is broken. It is very rare to find a church where authentic Christianity is being practiced anymore. If the Church in America would repent and turn back to real, authentic Christianity at least we would have a chance of capturing the attention of those young Americans who are honestly looking for the truth.
Excerpts from our United States Declaration of Independence.
:The separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s “God” entitle them,
:We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their “Creator” with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
:appealing to the “Supreme Judge” of the world
We can not let Our Creator, the Supreme Judge, Our God be taken from us or our youth. We must fight for what we believe in. The word Revival is not strong enough. God needs foot soldiers on the ground Here and Now. There is no time to waste. With enough people, enough voices, enough examples of Christianity (ourselves) and God by our side….we can win this war for souls in America.
Dear Lord, I pray for your helping hand, to bring about an uprising of your followers. That we may evangelize like never before. That we may spread your word faster than the cancer that is eating away at the very heart of our country.
In Jesus holy name I pray, Amen.
