Yes, I have to say it: O YE OF LITTLE FAITH. Why all the wishy washy? Didn’t the last Presidential election teach Christians anything at all? The Pew Research Center showed that half of all those that claimed to be protestant/evangelical voted for one of the most progressive liberals in history. What happened? And why did many Christians stay home?
Our faith ebbed, the nation choked, and we are headed in the same direction unless the Church shows up and VOTES. Today’s average Christian has lost the one love that Jesus left with us, a ‘mustard seed’ faith: “So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Matthew 17:20-21.
Mustard seed faith, a way made for us is lying on the side of the road unused and ignored. Where were we weak?
As the pulpit goes, so goes the NATION. In this article regarding how Christians and denominations vote, it’s quite plain that the ‘Church’ has gone away from the Bible and instead toward social justice and liberal rhetoric. The Protestant Church leans toward the social justices to recruit and strengthen waning church attendance, using these so-called ‘social justices’ as a standard to what they really want – abortion on demand, gay marriage and rewriting the Bible to suit their vulgar agenda.
This is how Obama was elected in 2008 and 2012. But interestingly, in 2012 79% of Mormons voted for Romney and in this election cycle they are voting Democrat. Quite telling, isn’t it? Without Jesus, which Mormons are, there is only hope in ‘social justice’. So, in 2012, their faith was in another Mormon.
In a recent article, a Georgia Pastor was told to give up his sermon notes and even his Bible: “Walsh is a leading health expert who was previously appointed to President Obama’s Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDs, but the state’s Department of Public Health ended up rescinding his employment after it investigated his Christian views on marriage.”
Obviously, no Pastor or Minister or ANYONE should give up their religious freedom for any reason. Pastor Walsh failed to understand that you cannot serve God and a liberal government: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon,” Matthew 6:24. This example should chill you to the bone. Every Christian, Church, Bible study, and fellowship is subject to this if we continue to allow liberal democrats to lead this nation.
There is much to learn from all of this and past election cycles. We are not electing a Pastor; even churches mess that one up. We are electing a person(s) who will strengthen our Constitution, the military, the Church. So, Go out into ALL the world, continue to pursue the afflicted and hopeless and voiceless.
So, where is YOUR faith?
