The current administration was placed into power with the vote of 40 million Christians. They conveniently called it “faith based support.” Obama is pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-big government, pro-lying, and pro-Islam. How could Christians possibly support such anti-Biblical positions? Who is teaching them this crap? Who indeed…
Our pastors are traitorous, both to their Lord and to their nation. There is simply no nice way of saying it. When a football team plays poorly, they fire the coach. When churches start to fail, they change playbooks.
Traitor—one who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty.
There are a lot of reasons why pastors act the way they act, but no amount of rationalization can justify their dereliction of duty. In the end, they will answer to the Lord, not to the Government. Their corporate identity and their denominational affiliation will not be much of a defense as they stand before the Lord.
If you haven’t already done so, please take the time to read Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s recent commentary regarding George Barna’s survey that reveals the fact that 90% of America’s pastors are purposefully keeping the people in the dark. They are concerned with hurting the growth of “their church” by talking about “controversial” issues.
Who was it that classified marriage, abortion, un-holy wars, tyrannical government, government thievery, unrighteous taxation, dishonest courts, drug legalization, deviant sexual behavior, the indoctrination of children, and public filth as ”controversial” issues? The church used to be the “wave machine” on all of these issues, but alas: The salt has lost his savor.
Although I’m sure you’re familiar with them, I believe that the words of Charles Finney are worth repeating:
“If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible.”
Martin Luther declared:
“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.”
Flight and disgrace are the fruits of abandonment. Abandonment is treason. Those who commit treason are traitorous. If Barna is correct, can any other term be more appropriately applied to America’s churches where 90% of the pulpits are filled by traitorous, cowardly men? It is not the politicians who are to blame. It is the pastors…the pulpits. Stop giving them your money. That is all they understand. Find a mission worth supporting and direct your giving there.
We are a nation adrift…meandering down the river of history…rudderless…devoid of propulsion… drifting wherever the current might take us. There is a waterfall ahead. Who’s steering the ship? Is your family willing to blindly follow the captain over the cliff?
