"One more time. It is time for the church to become the church. I mean a Holy Bible teaching church. Would that solve all our problems? Nope. But most of them I suspect."
I really love (not) the Loony Left. I love (not) how they manage to twist and tort everything which is good in our country. A good example you ask? The First Amendment. They have taken a bedrock principle of our founding - freedom FROM (a state mandated) religion, and twisted it into "freedom from any religion". Ergo, we have kicked God out of the schools. In addition, many of the progressives and socialists on the Left have shown a disdain for the Holy Bible. They really do dislike the fact the Holy Bible has rules. But what many really hate is this - the fact that Jesus is the only truth and the way.
But - when it comes to cornerstone issue such as the sanctity of life (abortion), the church (for the most part) takes a pass. Seems like only some Catholic parishes are on-board with protecting God's most innocent creation. And this is where the real evil comes in. I know some practicing Catholics who put more faith in the Democratic platform than what the churches teaching is on the sanctity of life. However, It gets worse. Lutherans, Methodists, Baptists, non-denominational - they are all weak kneed, and mostly silent on this most important issue.
I have addressed this before. I will do it again. NOW is the time for the church to be the church (once again). Was the church ever intended to be comfortable place? Sometimes it was intended to be not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. it was also intended to be a place to be a place of worship, and then become trained and anointed. Why? So one could go out in the world and practice what Matthew 28 commanded us do to. If you don't know what that is, ask your pastor or priest to preach on it.
I don't want to bring the church, nor our faith, into the political spectrum. But I will say this. If we all truly practiced what the red ink really taught us in the New Testament, our political differences would be reduced to a trickle. But according to what the Word teaches, the road forward is not easy. It is difficult with difficult choices. Our Founders, for the most part, were deep in their faith. They knew our path would be hard and steep, but ever so worth it. And they wove that into our documents.
Now talk like a Senior Pastor - "Come on Church - let's go!". We can help the least of us, and protect the unborn at the same time. We can recognize our natural or God given rights, without assigning them to any government. A true church would stand behind our Bill of Rights and our Constitution. More importantly, a true church stands behind the God breathed anointing of the Holy Bible.
One more time. It is time for the church to become the church. I mean a Holy Bible teaching church. Would that solve all our problems? Nope. But most of them I suspect.
