“He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” Matthew 12:30
As a Christian – a “Born Again Christian” and saved through the blood of Jesus Christ who died for all my sins I am writing this open letter.
The world today is divided into astonishingly different ideologies. It has nothing to do with politics or ideals, hopes or dreams. There are people who believe in “Worldly Ways,” and other people who believe in “Godly-Ways.” In actuality there is God’s world and there is Satan’s world. Bibles are now distributed throughout the world. So there are no more excuses for those who choose deliberate sin. The sheep are separating from the goats like never before. It is as plain as day…everyone must take a stand. It is time to stop catering to those who willfully sin at Satan’s table. God expects more of His children. We are to be a light to the lost. We know right from wrong, and we need to stand up for it for what is right.
We Christian’s are said to be about 80% of American society. We are the only hope to turn our country around so God will have mercy on our nation. I wrote on this topic four years ago, and things have only gotten worse throughout the world. God gave us the hope of prayer, and He tells us to pray unceasingly. Although the end game is in God’s hand and it’s already written…we don’t know the entire ending…only God does. Many Christian’s are still a work in progress, but they can pray for the wisdom of God’s will for America. We know that His will is not for failure or to condemn. He gave Sodom and Gomorrah the chance to change their ways many times. He loves all his children, but He can not accept sin, for He is a Holy God.
The Bible tells us that intentional sin without remorse is unacceptable to the Lord. Unfortunately, we live in a society that not only accepts abominations unto the Lord, but embraces them. The murder of a fetus and babies that are viable (can live outside the mother’s womb) are accepted throughout the entire world. Illegal drugs, sexual perversion, lack of morals, and kids hooking up are all considered a person’s right to choose by secular society. Many churches now condone homosexual Pastors. The marriage bed has been defiled by blessing marriages that are not of one man one woman. God gave Eve to Adam to pro-create. All these sins are accepted as a normal part of being a human being. Well the Bible says sin is normal and is a part of being human, but only through Christ can we make the right decisions. No where in the Bible are any of these things acceptable. But in today’s secular society all these things are considered a person’s right to choose.
If America’s way of life becomes like all the other nations that are not “Under God” what will happen to the lost and lonely who are caught in the middle? Who will they fashion themselves after?
The women were once the backbone of America, they held the home together. What happened to them? We have lost them to the world of pride. Like Eve in the Garden of Eden they have succumbed to the pride of wanting to be like God. Eve went to Adam and he, too, in pride, wanted to be like God. Satan roams the earth as a hungry lion devouring all he can. The women who encourage a secular society by voting for, abortion, defiling the marriage bed, choosing not to marry but living with different partners, spoiling their
children out of guilt because they are out working and not at home, encouraging lust by their dress and behavior, demanding a place in a man’s world…I do not believe they are happy. Medical studies prove they are not.
Christians have remained silent for too long, we have allowed atheists, and communist, socialists, and extremists to rule our land. We know that Christians will be persecuted for honoring a Holy God. The good news is that all those in Christ have no fear. Sadly the once vital God fearing America who now worships Satan instead of God will be devastated. We need to pray for the lost because they know not what they do. Pray they will recognize God’s ways, and the beautiful world he gave us, His love, His forgiveness, and His majesty…Pray that all will acknowledge the one and only loving God, the Father of mankind who gave them their freedom of choice. Pray they will not choose the way of Satan, the great deceiver, the author of everlasting destruction.
