This video argues that if Christians want to impact culture, then they’re going to have to leave their Lysol-disinfected environments and get their hands dirty in the real world.
Our freedom is based on morality, not money. It is our responsibility to do good works AND fight evil to guarantee the exercise of our God-given unalienable rights. Freedom without that responsibility is a nation-killer. It will deprave us and enslave us, as we are witnessing.
If your pastor or priest focuses only on love, good works, prayer, tithing, and pacifist sermons, but avoids courageous moral teachings and won’t fight evil, then rebuke him. Fire him if he’s unrepentant, or change churches if he “owns” it, or start a home church and tithe to it. It’s an abomination and suicidal to submit to the pastoral authority of a coward; it’s also a nation-killer.
On the other hand, the nation’s pastors and priests could turn this all around if they mobilized their congregations to fight evil. So far they haven’t, so we’re having to work around them.
It’s not just dirt you get on your hands.
Ernest, you mention tithing. You must understand something. Tithing was a command given by God to the Children of Israel solely for the support of the Levite Priests, who by the way, no longer exist. The command was given under the law, which Jesus abolished by His death on the cross. We are now under grace. You CANNOT mix law with grace, which MANY churches are doing today.
Under Grace you give a Love Offering, what God puts on your heart to give. Give it ALL if you want, but to call it a tithe is mixing law with grace. This is just one of the many things that churches are not teaching the truth about. Giving to the church is a great thing to do, but it’s not always about money. Donating food and clothing to the church to give to the poor in the community who are in dire need of it is another way of giving. It is not always about money.
There was a fellow I heard of near here who said “If trouble breaks out I’d run down to the church and pray.” I’m sure that there were TONS of prayers going up for the Christians assaulted and murdered in the Middle East, lately – to what avail? What I see is this fellow saying “To hell with my friends, neighbors and family I might be able to defend if I was there.”
“But Christians ought not get involved with secular matters!”? But if you READ your Bible it is CLEAR that Jesus was OFTEN loud, unabashed, scathing and even violent regarding civil and even political issues!
