Commentary by— the Fiery Evangelist
I’ve been thinking about religion a lot lately and specifically about Christianity. I’ve been wondering what in the hell is wrong with Christians today. Why don’t they stand up and fight back? Why to they turn a blind eye to their brethren being slaughters by radical Muslims in places like Syria, Egypt, Iran, Pakistan et al? Why do they not protest LOUDLY against the indoctrination in our public schools into Islam, Satanism, and everything else EXCEPT Christianity? Why don’t Christians stand up for their beliefs and faith instead of acting like COWARDS and being silent? Why don’t Christians take a stand for BIBLICAL morals and values instead of turning the other cheek when presented with any old SICKO perverted value that goes directly against their faith?
In times gone by our churches used to be Fortresses for the Faithful in which generations of the faithful were raised up to become Christian SOLDIERS so they could engage in the “good fight” for the glory of Christ. And our pastors used to be like commanding generals pointing us in the right direction in our ongoing battle between light and darkness, good and evil. Notice I said USED TO BE? That’s because today our churches are little more than nice social clubs and hospitals for the spiritually wounded and fearful and our pastors are little more than nurse maids!
I think MOST Christians have LOST their direction and forgotten their MISSION. I think MANY have been conned by the very false teachers and lying prophets that Christ warned us about! I think some have given into a LYING gospel of the world and forgotten the GOSPEL taught by Christ and the Apostles. In short, there’s no doubt in my mind that we are living today in the Great Apostasy as foretold in the New Testament when MOST people have turned away and against God in favor of the trinkets and dust collectors of the world. And for many their faith is no longer even lukewarm because, honestly, their faith is DEAD!
Jesus taught that when offended Christians are supposed to turn the other cheek but I do NOT think he meant that the faithful are supposed to keep turning that other cheek endlessly. Only a FOOL stands and allows a bully to slap him until he is down on the ground! Frankly, I think that by not speaking out and standing up for our brethren is nothing short of SIN! I think our silence sanctions the evil we see in the world and we are in fact supposed to be OPPOSING it not being silent about it and turning the other cheek.
NO I’m not advocating a violent and oppressive Christianity but what I AM advocating is a Christianity with some GUTS AND TEETH instead of this limp handed BULLSHIT we call Christianity today! As Christians we are SUPPOSED to speak out AGAINST injustice and abomination and NOT be silent about it! We are SUPPOSED to be “Soldiers for Christ” and “fighting the good fight” instead of hiding out in the dark damp halls of our churches. And, as Christians we are SUPPOSED to be putting on the whole armor of God and battling against darkness and evil in the world NOT ignoring it and most certainly NOT going along with it or sanctioning it through our silence!!
The wife of Reverend Billy Graham used to compare America to having surpassed anything Sodom and Gomorrah could every have dreamed of and I couldn’t agree with her more. America IS the modern version of Sodom and Gomorrah and somewhere in the depths of our souls we ALL know it. Yet, in this land of perversion, sin, and outright abomination Christians are silent, weak in faith, and fearful of being politically incorrect and hurting some SINNERS feelings, God forbid. Hey ya know what? Sinners feelings NEED to be hurt because just maybe their hurt feelings will lead them into the arms of God through Christ the ONLY Savior!!
Christians who are silent sanction the evil and perversion in the world today. Christians who don’t stand up for Biblical principles, morals, and values are not Christians with lukewarm faith but DEAD FAITH! Churches that are supposed to be FORTRESSES for the faithful but instead of refugee hospitals are churches that have FAILED their mission! And pastors who are weak-willed nurse maids only help support the LYING false teachers and prophets who preach a worldly gospel that stands in DIRECT opposition to Jesus Christ! Such pastors should find another line of work as they do NOT belong in the church especially today!
Finally, Christians seem to be looking for some person to save them when in fact the ONLY person that can save them and that DOES save them is found in the person of Jesus Christ. But I don’t see Christians looking to Christ for salvation. Instead I see them looking to people like Donald Trump or some LYING FALSE PROPHET who pastors a mega church and preaches a FALSE gospel…..you know the line…..”God wants you to be RICH!”.
Christians today need to muster up some guts and courage. They need to resume the fight against evil and darkness. They need to STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT for God’s sake! They need to once again PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ because contrary to what some believe the whole world today obviously has NOT heard the Word!! Christians…..REAL Christians are supposed to be leaders and beacons of LIGHT for those who do not yet know Christ. We are supposed to be leading via our own personal example of faith in our Lord. Our silence and complacency only teaches the world that any old sin and abomination is OK no matter how PERVERTED and disgusting it is!
So “what would Jesus do?” Well he sure as hell wouldn’t be silent and complacent in the midst of Sodom and Gomorrah like we are!!
Think about it.
