I guess as we look at the chaos around us, it is easy to point a finger of blame. Of late, I have heard so many stories of some pastors bowing their knee to everything but God, that it has finely struck a nerve. So many politicians appear spineless, and some pastors are no exception.
Will the real pastors please stand up?
They refuse to stand up against anything the Word calls sin, because it isn’t politically correct. We can’t call prayer in churches, because someone might be offended if we pray for the President. The “myth of neutrality and fear of losing their 501c3 status is an excuse for their compromise.” (Mario Murillo)
Some churches have derailed as well as our nation due to concession!
It’s time for people to stand up, speak up, and get up and do something.
People go to the house of God (if they are fortunate enough to be able to get in the door due to COVID) and hear some irrelevant sermon and some goofy stories that have nothing to do with the crisis at hand or the Word of God.
Some pastors are buying into worthless ideologies, because they are just as deceived as many of us. Now is not the time to bow the knee to cultural demands, but rather time to take a strong stand for what God’s Word says.
We experience Godlessness in academia, media, courts of law, and politics, but pastors don’t want to offend anyone, so they remain silent.
I have watched this play out for decades. If pastors and people of faith don’t start speaking out against the radical ideologies in this country, we are going to end up in a place we don’t want to be. We cower in fear yet God says in Joshua 1 : 7
Our problem is we have deviated so much from God’s word, we are inclined to believe anything. To be honest, I would guess that some “Christians” haven’t even read it. So many Christians have no real standard by which they live, because their faith is wrapped up in the doctrines of men, and they don’t know who they are in Christ. I have taught Bible studies for decades, and most people showing up in the classes have been Christians for years, yet many have spent little time in the scriptures. How can that be?
We have lived such lukewarm Christian lives, we don’t know how to repent, nor do we know how to fast and pray. We are in some of the most dangerous days in our history as a country and so many Christians don’t even know how to pray. I haven’t heard a pastor pray and cry out to God from the pulpit in over 25 years.
It’s time for pastors and believers to wake up and stop playing “church games.” I have often wondered in the past months, if God shut the church doors due to COVID because he was weary of the nonsense going on in some churches.
In the Old Testament, God allowed the magnificent Temple of Solomon to be burned to the ground along with Jerusalem, because His people would not repent and turn from wicked ways.
God is standing at the door and knocking and waiting for America to repent and turn to Him. Only God can deliver us from the place in which we have found ourselves.
The battle for America will only be won on our knees in prayer. God alone can bring repentance and revival to our broken and desperate land. Join Him in what He is doing in our nation!
