Our Clergy Must Stand Up for God and Country NOW!

A tsunami of evil is growing against the Christian community and needs to be stopped. Our forefathers were willing to do certain things to give us this God given nation that today’s Christian community seems all too willing to give up to the left. Our forefathers gave up trying to appease the British noted by the infamous words of Patrick Henry “Give me Liberty or Give me Death”. There was no middle ground if they wanted freedom and they were willing to put their material comforts and very lives at risk to accomplish their goal believing it was the will of God. Today the Christian community enjoys unprecedented wealth and are convinced that God wants them to stay within the confines of their church putting nothing at risk especially their tax-exempt status. They believe that the government has given them this tax-exempt status so they will stay out of the political arena to the point where it has become a leash and cage to control the Godly by the ungodly.

Our founding fathers took bold action and prosecuted a long war against overwhelming odds and understood that God would only give them victory if they exhibited a willingness to take action. Today’s average pastor is looking for harmony, peace and eventually retirement and they are not looking for any action that would create discomfort, conflict, or disruption. They need to realize that this is a time for Christians to become as vocal, visible and as politically powerful as their “enemies”. They must stop fearing the loss of their tax-exempt status, political consequences and the vitriolic sound of mainstream media. They need to stand up for Christian moral standards as our forefathers did.

The liberal culture has a huge dislike for the Christian community and the two that stand out are the LGBTQ community and the abortion industry. Their ideology, morals, and lifestyle are diametrically opposed to the bible, and there is no middle ground or compromise between these groups and those who believe the Bible to be the moral guidelines of God. It is possible for Christians to be as visible, vocal, and politically powerful as these two groups but only if these Christian denominations unite and collectively bring their assets to bear on their enemies.

Until the leaders of these Fundamental churches unite their power bases nothing will change as there is currently no inclination to step out of their safety zones. They see the church roof is leaking but have no inclination to fix it. Fear is the foremost reason why evangelical pastors do not take action, and secondly, because they have not personally experienced the consequences of their inaction yet. The consequences of their inaction will eventually destroy them as the LGBTQ community and pro-abortionists continue to win legal battles in our courts on same-sex marriage and sex-oriented anti-discrimination and abortion laws? For years they have been taking control of liberal denominations with gay pastors and bishops. With the control they have of the liberal media, the entertainment industry, and the public school system they have been changing public opinion to one of acceptance.

Homosexuality has become perverse throughout our culture. We only need to look at our TV programming, movies, and the internet which are all laced with homosexuality and pornography. At their current rate of progression, it will not be long before they will not legally be able to reject the pastorate or Sunday school teacher position to a “qualified” homosexual, who will have the legal ability to successfully sue the church for damages. As they continue to win these court decisions churches may end up with an LGBTQ pastor, who may also wind up owning the Church’s assets. If the Christian community continues to ignore and abdicate their political and national responsibilities to influence and guide the moral course of this nation we will no longer be one nation under God. Will it be acceptable to live in tyranny or will our Clergy step forward and take on the challenge of bringing God back into our schools, government, and everyday lives?

Spot on Bob… Eric Metaxas’ Letter to the American Church should be given to every Pastor & Elder and the flock needs it too. I don’t think God will be pleased with us as we sit back and watch the world go to hell just because we expect to enter the Kingdom.

Here is a YouTube which summarizes Eric Metaxas’s view (BTW his book on Bonhoeffer is a must read as well).

When I think of the Black Robe Regiment and what we have in our pulpits today, I am totally disheartened. I know there are some good pastors, but it would seem that for the most part you would have to search long and hard to find anyone who had a “calling” to go into the ministry today.

Back in the late 90s our neighbor’s grandson felt a strong calling to go into the ministry and when he went to what I would have considered to be a very conservative Bible college, one of the first things he was met with was “Let us help you learn how to negotiate your salary and housing.” The young man was completely disillusioned. So, to think that you might get ministers to stand up for the Constitution, the Bible, God and Country may be a far stretch. Of course, I agree that this is what is needed and that we might make strong headway — but I’m not sure there will be the wherewithal.

CLERGY LIKE PATRICK HENRY!

Patrick Henry is best known for his “Give me liberty or death!” speech, but there are others far more important that should have been the topic of one of Paul Harvey’s “The Rest of the Story!” radio series – the speeches he delivered at the Virginia’s Constitution Ratifying Convention, part of one of the which follows:

“…Convinced the Constitution would fail to secure and protect liberty, Patrick Henry [who refused to attend the original 1787 Constitutional Convention, declaring ‘I smelt a rat!’] voiced his concerns to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788:

‘…I say our privileges and rights are in danger. …the new form of Government … will … effectually … oppress and ruin the people…. In some parts of the plan before you, the great rights of freemen are endangered, in other parts, absolutely taken away…. There will be no checks, no real balances, in this Government: What can avail your specious imaginary balances, your rope-dancing, chain-rattling, ridiculous ideal checks and contrivances? …And yet who knows the dangers that this new system may produce: they are out of the sight of the common people: They cannot foresee latent consequences…. I see great jeopardy in this new Government.’67

“In contrast to the federalists’ failed predictions, this and nearly everything the anti-federalists forecast about the Constitution has come true [even after the Bill of Rights, aka a Bill of Goods was added]….”

Find out how much you really know about the Constitution as compared to the Bible. Take our 10-question Constitution Survey in the sidebar and receive a free copy of the 85-page “Primer” of “BL vs. USC.”

If the people, and the clergy, would take the time to learn and understand the federal tax laws there would not be so afraid to take a stand. The laws are in their favor but they have allowed themselves to be deceived by the Synagogue of Satan. Now use the Bible to understand who that is.

ATTENTION FAITHFUL CHRIST FOLLOWERS: Stop waiting on your pastor to lead. YOU set the example by taking action now. While we still have some liberties left. This is the conclusion I finally reached some years ago. Result: I am a founding board member of Magic Valley Liberty Alliance in Twin Falls, ID (www.mvlibertyalliance.org). MVLA has over 400 email subscribers, 900 Facebook followers, a website, biweekly 2023 Legislation Update meetings. Some pastors support us. Some avoid us. Leftist Magic Valley Republicans fear us. Liberty-loving Republicans love us. God is blessing MVLA, all because a handful of Christ followers, out of love for God and neighbor, acted in faith. You can too. Need some help getting your own group started? You can reach me at news@mvlibertyalliance.org.
