WHAT PRECISLEY IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA TODAY, 2013

“There is no power, but of GOD, the powers that be are ordained of GOD”

What is the role of the church? The church must continually ask the state (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government) whether its actions can be justified as legitimate action of the state, i.e., as action which leads to law and order, and not to lawlessness and disorder.
It is the churches role to help the state to be the state. If the state is not creating an atmosphere of law and order, as Scripture says it must, then it is the job of the church to draw the state’s attention to this failing. And if on the other hand, the state is creating an atmosphere of excessive law and order, it is the church’s job to draw the state’s attention to that too.

If the state is creating excessive law and order, then the state develops its power to such an extent that it deprives Christan preaching and Christian faith…..of their rights. The church must reject this encroachment of the order of the state precisely because of its better knowledge of the state and of the limitations of its actions. The state (Branches of Government) which endangers the Christian proclamation negates itself.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in a speech to his Christian brothers in church leadership 1933

Quoted from Eric Metaxas book: BONHOEFFER

What precisely is happening in America today, 2013?

Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Association of “Separation of Church and State” has been so fundamentally misrepresented that our current federal, state and local governments, academia, media and society as a whole view those who are Christian and believe that the biblical world-view is good and moral and right, are the blight upon American society as were the Jewish people in Germany during the Nazi Reich.

The church as most people see it today is divided, unsure of its purpose, and is therefore powerless. History does not lie! What happened less that 100 years ago is happening once again. While technology and advancement and most everything has changed since then, what our elected government officials are doing to restrict individual rights and outright outlaw all the other privileges the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights guarantees every American citizen, is an exact replica of what Hitler and his supporters did leading up to and once their democratic republic became a dictatorship.

The confessing church then went underground. Christians were intimidated, slandered, imprisoned and murdered because they spoke the truths of the Gospel in opposition to the inhumane and criminal actions of the Nazi Reich.
What will the professing church of Jesus Christ do today in America to confront those in government with the ever relevant truths of the Gospel whose actions are godless, immoral and inhumane? Only time will tell. But as world history shows, persecution separates the visible church from the true church. I do…..and I am prepared. Are you?

Meditate upon this…

“BLACK AMERICANS STILL CRIPPLED BY RACIAL POLICIES”

No, this is no longer true!

A black man, Barack Obama, has won the Oval Office…..twice! A black woman, Oprah Winfrey, has topped the highest income bracket in America. Black people born of every conceivable social class have attained the most coveted achievements the world-over. What more can black Americans hope for? In reality, these examples take all excuses away.

It’s black uneducated children living in godless fatherless broken homes surrounded by ignorant lazy adults whose dependence upon government welfare handouts along with unchecked drug and alcohol habits have nurtured a youth culture to have no respect for themselves or the lives of others, who are the ruthless criminals and killers of themselves and of innocents today. The prison population in America is what it is for these reasons.

No, racism will never be non-existent. There will always be insecurity and cruelty among every generation and social class of society. But the black Americans’ worst enemy are those of their own race. Barack Obama, Bernice King, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jamie Foxx, Malik Shabazz, and all the others… These are those who will not allow the financial conquests of racism to cease to inflame the black hoodlum youths lust for lawless behavior and for revenge for having been born black. Rather than incite already fragile racial tensions, black leaders should go to any length to educate the young and still impressionable black American youth to the possibilities of what their life could be like if they would only work for it.

Politicians, the media and angry black Americans need to stop blaming white people for the bondage blacks inflict upon themselves!

Government is not Exempt from the Rule of GOD

Ever sense GOD revealed to me the divine truth of Christ and of the work of salvation which only GOD can accomplish in my life, I have often thought about what my responsibility as a Christian is when faced with the blatant disregard of human life by another person.

Because of the life I have lived, I naturally react aggressively towards the person committing a criminal or inhumane act against another person. I despise viscous amoral people!

I am commanded by the teachings of Scripture to defend the revealed truth, to provide for my family and for the less fortunate. I cannot separate provision from protection. If someone were to attempt to harm myself, my wife or a child or one of the few people I have come to respect, I have no reservations with using any means necessary to stop this person.

I am currently reading the book: “Bonhoeffer – Pastor Prophet Martyr Spy” This book reveals the personal life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who though being a theologian and pastor and deeply convicted with the Christian faith, attempted to kill Adolph Hitler during the horrific reign of the Nazi Reich. He was murdered by the Nazi’s in a concentration camp just before the end of WWII.

Fast forward to today. Our own state and federal elected government officials are attempting to do what Hitler did during his rise to power. On all fronts and with no attempt what-so-ever to hide from us what they are doing. While the church, for the most part then and today, remains silent. The question that I have repeatedly asked myself is: “What is my moral obligation as a Christian when knowing that those in the federal government are setting up the American economy for collapse, and the inevitable chaos which will ensue when Martial Law is declared because everyone no longer has the means to provide for themselves and their families?

I am to proclaim the good news of the Gospel. This goes without question. Government offers no solution for the amoral plight of people today. Only Christ revealed and the transformation of a persons life by the work of GOD’s Spirit can change a society for the better one person at a time. This is not the thought I wrestle with.

I have though come believe that it is my responsibility to learn about what is happening, research the information to verify, and then tell people what their elected officials have done, are currently doing, and based upon their history, will continue to do to enslave all of us to the bondage of a tyrannical fascist socialist government rule. The America of 2013 is no longer the American ideal of 1776! America was established as a Constitutional Republic. “Rule by Law.” Republicans and Democrats currently in office, except for a very few, have no regard for the United States Constitution nor for The Bill of Rights of the citizenry. And yet the church has chosen to not hold these men and women accountable to their behavioral guidelines set forth in Scripture. Government is not exempt from the rule of GOD. Government is to be the example of GOD’s rule of law. Americas sacred documents cannot be rightly interpreted apart from the revealed truths of the Christian Bible. They are inseparable.

Secular ideology has never ceased to silence Christian morals in the realms of government, education, debate, and in every aspect of American life. But it is only the born-again church of Jesus Christ that has the authority to instruct those in government as to how they must act! GOD has spoken through Scripture, and as Christ’s disciples we have the moral obligation to proclaim to all people what GOD expects of each of us. As so many in government have done, it is the responsibility of the church to learn the facts regarding the world-view and conduct of every politician in the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. To make known this information so that the people of the states who have voted these men and women into office will have the information that is necessary to determine if one is morally capable to hold public office. The church has neglected this responsibility. And because of this neglect, the immoral conduct of American society is the result of the amoral conduct of those in leadership in first the church and in government.

The Christian life is not the crutch of weakness so many believe it is. GOD’s calling has consequence! Anyone can live the cowardly life of moral relativism and self servitude. It takes courage though to be the voice of reason and of accountability. The men and women who dare to believe the Gospel of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ are the most influential people among any society. The church must speak up…..with bold humility.

THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL IS THE GREATEST TRUTH IN ALL THE WORLD TO CONSIDER

GOD is love, but you must be made to understand that GOD’s love for humanity is conditional, and that condition demanded justice. Most people today do not have a correct understanding of GOD because far too many people in religious leadership themselves do not have a correct understanding of GOD. A price for your and my sins had to be paid. Christ died so that we could live, and only GOD could be the substitute in our place. GOD became sin so that we might be declared righteous. All false world religions are man’s attainment to the god of their choosing. The Gospel of Jesus Christ alone is the account of GOD’s redemption of man. The Gospel is foolishness to the sinner, but it is the power of GOD through the life-long work of salvation resulting in the transformation of one’s life to those whom GOD has called. Those opposed to this message reject GOD’s gift of love or have went out from Christian fellowship by choice into the world because you are not nor were you ever of us. Salvation is not something that you decide to begin one day. Salvation is the work of GOD. I pity you. It will be a terrible day when the unsaved of humanity stand before the one true GOD on their own merit to be judged, and are then subject to the eternal wrath of GOD.

The Christian Gospel is the greatest truth in all the world to consider. In all honesty, how could men have ever imagined and then written a story so unbelievable as what is presented in the Bible as GOD’s self-revelation to humanity? This alone gives evidence that the Bible is the only true revelation of GOD… GOD cannot, GOD will not conform to what we want GOD to be. We must conform to what GOD demands we become. Do not be wrong, your eternal life depends on the decision you make!
