What is wrong with us!?

“You stick to your truths, I’ll stick to mine”

I heard this today and I thought to myself, “NO! I want you to know my truth and believe in it, because it will save YOU!!”For far too long Christians have been “turning the other cheek” when it comes to standing up for God, sharing the gospel, and speaking out against sin.

What is wrong with us!?

Why have we become so complacent? Why have we compromised our morals to elect people in charge that do not represent us? I had someone say to me, “I do not vote on the person based on my faith” WHAT!!?? Why not? If we don’t elect leaders that are godly our nation will crumble. If we know anything about scripture, we know that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” Psalms 33:12 It applied for Israel, yes. But, God says that to all. Why wouldn’t he bless those that serve him? That would be inconsistent with his character and his word.

Have you not noticed the rise in teen pregnancies? I have in my small community. Have you not noticed how homosexuality is a normal thing now? Teen and gang crime is higher. Our country has lost its moral compass. If you need sources for any of this…look out your window. Get up from under your rock.

Who is to blame for the moral decline? Spiritually, Satan. Yes. He seeks out whom he can devour. But, in my opinion, it is also the Christians who are to blame. I am too.

We do not teach our daughters to dress modestly. But, it is okay to dress like that because, “we want you to fit in with your peers.” We do not teach our sons to respect women. Or teach our young people to have responsibility for their actions. We don’t offer hope to people like we should. We don’t offer a better way. Because frankly, we are not living the “better way” ourselves.

Yes, we are to be meek, we are to avoid quarrels, live at peace etc. But, we CAN stand up for what is right and godly. In this country we have had the right to do that. Yet, we have failed.  We have remained silent. For what? For the sake of “fitting in”. For not “offending” everyone. The gospel message will offend. Jesus said, For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who [m]are perishing…” 1 Corinthians 1:18 We will offend.  “Christians are suppose to love everyone.” Have you heard that one? We are to love, yes…but …we are loving them to HELL! We have to say something if we truly love them and care for their soul.

Many know this quote well, if you are an informed individual. That is the problem too. Many Christians are NOT informed. Whether in world affairs, politics..or the bible. They just live life unaware of the world around them. “What doesn’t hurt me” “I’ll keep my truth to myself” “I don’t need to share the gospel, God chooses who will get saved or not anyways” They live their quiet lives, not caring that their neighbor is hurting. That their are those who are going to hell because they don’t want to “cause problems”. We will be held accountable for our actions or lack of actions too.

Think about this: “whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.” James 5:20

What will you do as a christian? Will you continue to sit idly by? Just live life as usual? God has so much more for us! Can’t you feel that He does!? He wants us to make our move. He wants to use us to reach out to others. He created you for such a purpose.

What will you do?

I don’t want to be silent anymore!

“Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:7

  1. No doubt Satan is active as ever, but I don’t blame him. We are reaping what we have sown for decades. And yes, the church is silent, to our own shame and regret. Definitely including me. Busyness, apathy, lost in materialism, etc. What are we teaching our kids and grandkids?

    The stakes could not be higher, nor the calling.

    Affluence or influence? Not sure we can have both; too much of the former suffocates the latter. The right kind of the latter, and we won’t care about the former…

    Forgive my ravings…

    I appreciate the frankness of your message.

  2. During the election the typical “lesser of two evils” debate seemed heavier than before. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still evil.
    Our Nation needs healing, and the only way that can happen is through God.
    One of the quotes I liked during the election cycle was by John Calvin. “When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them evil rulers.” The last 8 years of our country was difficult. But the next 4 years will be even more difficult if we as a nation do not turn from our arrogant, egotistical and prideful ways. Not that we shouldn’t have pride in our country, we should, but we must first put God before country. As you said, we’ve compromised our morals for the sake of the greater good of America. And when you compromise those values, as history has proven with Israel, our nation WILL fall. It’s just a matter of time. But it’s not too late to turn and repent and “Make America great again.” My prayer is that God heals our nation and that we turn to Him to make us great, not man.

    • Yes, and that is the point. it’s not about our nation, but it’s about God and souls. This is not our home. Yet Christians have settled for it, or perhaps become “lukewarm” , just “living the Christian life”. They forget we were made to worship God, Not ourselves. When we wrap our mind around that.. Any nation would be great. But, living in this sinful world… That is our struggle , unfortunately .
