Over the last few years I have been woken up and have seen many things that are going on around the world and here at home. I have decided that I would no longer be a part of the silent majority but I would wake up and stand up and fight for what is true and just.
Our nation and our society as a whole are falling fast. We no longer even have the ability to say what is right and acceptable. In the United States, like all other places in the world, there has always been evil but there has also been good. The battles are not Republican or Democrat = the battles are between good versus evil GOD versus the Devil. Many want to negotiate what is tolerable and have lots a gray but this is wrong there is little gray – there is right and there is wrong.
In America we have what I see in the Democrat party those who believe that nothing is wrong – it’s all good and acceptable after all “one man’s wrong is another man’s right”.
Then you have the Libertarian Party that many within that Party say that they may well know and believe in right and wrong but they cannot say what someone else believes. After all it does not affect me. This is a false argument meant to make evil acceptable. Many Libertarians are very open about their views of legal prostitution, drugs, and any other vice that can capture the heart and soul of man and condemn one to everlasting damnation.
Then you have the Republican party the Right Wing The bible says “A wise man’s heart [is] at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left” Ecclesiastes 10:2. The Republican Party platform and its core fundamental beliefs are very clear they stand up for what is right and against what is wrong.
There is a movement to take and corrupt the Republican Party from within. To help dilute the lines of right and wrong; to bring in lots of gray arias. There are many who believe we should no longer fight for the lives of the unborn. There are some who believe we will die as a Party if we stand for legal immigration and against lawless illegal immigration.
Even now I get emails from respectable people within our Party that say we should not stand up and enforce our laws because we will lose the Hispanic vote. By saying that they seem to be suggesting that Hispanics by nature are law breakers. That is not true! The Hispanic people are no different than any other people. They love GOD and Family they are pro-life and love this county.
One of the telling moments of this for me came some time back during the last election cycle. One of the Party committees I am on was interviewing people that wanted the right to vote within the party to see if their personal beliefs lined up with the Republican Party Platform. The question of Marriage came up and this person was a person of the church. This person taught Sunday school and was a person of faith. Someone asked about the view of marriage being between one man and one woman. This person said they could not totally agree with this part of our platform. Questions and discussion went around with all the members of the committee and the true answer to why this person could not agree with one man one woman came out. This person said “I believe some people are born that way”. So I jumped in and said “you state that you are a Sunday school teacher? The answer was “yes:, then I asked “do you believe the Bible is the Holy and inspired Word of GOD?” The answer was “yes”, so I said “you agree then that we are all made in the image of our creator?” The answer was “yes”. So I asked do you then think GOD is Gay? Then immediately without hesitation one of the Republican Committee members looked me in the eye and said “You may be surprised one day”. We are being attacked from all sides and from within.
We need to stop accepting what we know to be wrong and stand up and be bold in what we know is truth. This does not mean as Christians we are perfect we are not. I am far from it every time I turn around I fall. I, like all of us have evil within that I fight everyday and some battles I win and some I lose. Some will see me fall I am sure and try and use this against me this is nothing new. People always look to destroy people that stand up for what is right and good.
We are not perfect but that does not mean we do not know what is right and what is wrong. We may fall and sin and do evil that after all is the nature of man we were born into sin. But by the grace of GOD and through his Son Jesus Christ we all have hope. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me“. We may sin but we continue to fight to do better and we do not have to accept evil and say we can’t stand up because we will fall. That is a cop-out! We need to stand up and to not be silent. To steal a phrase from another community we should be “loud and proud”. Stand up and fight for what you know is right, win or lose, it really does not matter. What matters in the end is that we stood up and fought and that we stood for what it is we knew in our hearts was right and pleasing in the sight of God.
Remember when you are in the battle and the world seems to be against you and you are all alone on the road fighting for biblical values. the Bible says “Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” So if the whole world was on your side you would be going the wrong way. So stand up and fight the good fight. and remember ”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places“.
Yes Jesus did preach love and forgiveness and we should love everyone. We need to love the sinner but not the sin.
