We live in perilous but predicted times. As the affairs around us grow darker, in unbelievable speed, we, as Judeo Christians, are supposed to grow brighter. There has never been a more important time since the foundation of our great country for Christians to stand up to protect our Christian values.
Our values are being stripped while we shake our heads in disbelief, talk about the injustice and do nothing.
Did you know that in the last presidential election, 25 million registered voters failed to vote? Where were you? Those votes would have made a big difference in the outcome. Every vote does count. Go to the polls and vote your faith because our faith matters.
There is so much attack on our Christian beliefs. What is wrong with the following pictures? Our children are not permitted to start their school day in prayer, our teachers are not allowed to keep a Bible on their desks, while non-gender bathrooms are installed and foot-washing facilities are installed in the schools.
Military chaplains are instructed not to use the name of Jesus in their services or at military funerals or face discharge. Servicemen and women are not permitted to talk to other active military about Jesus or carry a Bible on their person while in uniform.
We have come a long way from when the Holy Bible was the schools’ primary reader or the Holy Bible was issued as part of the military gear to our servicemen and women.
I write all this to try to stir up a desire to use your voice at the polls. It is a God-given right — use it wisely. Pray for your part of participation. The future of our children and grandchildren is at stake.
There is no perfect candidate for they are mere humans. Our choice of candidates may look dismal when we forget that our Almighty God is in control. God bless America.
