There are citizens in our nation working to remove the Bible and its author from all segments of our American society.
In 1962 and 1963, the highest court in the land declared school-sponsored prayer and Bible reading unconstitutional.
Last year the California legislature attempted to pass a bill that would have prohibited using the Bible for Christian counseling.
This month, a congregation had its church sign vandalized for stating the Bible’s view of homosexuality, “Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not.”
Democrat politicians try to tear down the cornerstone documents of our nation, which were founded on Biblical beliefs and principals.
“Can an empire like ours… still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”– Beto O’Rourke (Jan. 15, 2019, Washington Post, “Beto O’Rourke’s immigration plan: no wall, few specifics,” by Jenna Johnson).
And lastly, Christians are scrapping an adherence to the entire counsel of the Bible. They are swapping their Bible for a watered-down form of godliness that denies the power of the gospel, and resembles more closely a song by the Beatles.
What is to be done? It is time for all men who confess Jesus as Lord and believe that God has raised Him from the dead to set the barrier and stand in the gap. Let us study God’s word daily.
Let us challenge our pastors to stop contaminating the living water of the gospel with ecumenical sewage. Let us tell people about their eternal life in hell, and the Redeemer who wants them.
The root issue is sin. Let us get to work for God’s kingdom.
