Are we letting the Government remove Christianity?

Psalm 33:12

The news lately has been flooded with stories that are upsetting to many Christians. Gay marriages becoming more popular, government mandated abortion coverage, religious leaders classified as persona non grata (an unwelcome person) at the presidential inauguration, and many others. When issues like these surface in the news, there is a lot of reaction from Christians. All of the Christian news outlets are covering the story and talking about how bad it is. Many blogs and websites are posting information and talking about how bad it is. A ton of people are posting on Facebook and talking about how bad it is. But what are we doing to combat the problem?

I am not into politics. I don’t have any grand plan to change the government. My point is, what are we doing to change the way our country is going. There are many organizations in the country that are risking everything they have and putting all of their effort into removing God from our country. What are we doing to stop them? Are we quietly complaining about the problem, or are we actively standing up for our beliefs?

Many school districts have removed any mention of Christianity from there school and programs. In most cases, all it takes is one person complaining and the School will comply for fear of a law suit. We need to voice our opinions also. Don’t just leave it up to the big groups or important people, we ALL need to stand up and make our voices heard.

I know that a lot of people just don’t want to make waves, don’t want to get in the way, and are scared they will say the wrong thing or scared of what people will think. It is time we get out of this mind set. Each and every one of us is called to be a witness to others for the glory of God. We are also promised that the Holy Spirit will empower us so it doesn’t matter if we think we can, we just have to be willing! (Acts 1:8)

If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And “If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.

1 Peter 4:14-16

In 1 Peter, we are warned that as a Christian, we will be persecuted, but that we should not be afraid to suffer according to God’s will. Are you ready to accept The Great Commission or are you only comfortable being a Christian when your in the safety of your Church? Are you ready to show the world that you truly love the Lord and risk it all to stand firm in your beliefs?
