On August 25,2009 Senator Ted Kennedy passed away. I watched (what I could stomach) the funeral precession and the “mourners” on the sidewalk saying their goodbyes to a man who has done more damage to this country on the floor of the United States Senate then terrorists who would detonate bombs across this country. The saddest commentary I have is how many of these people – regardless of whether you lived in Massachusetts or not, supported this man and the causes he championed: Abortion on demand, Same-Sex Marriages, Homosexuality being taught in our public schools; could call themselves a Christian.
As we move further down the “road” of history a sign post that was on the horizon is now coming sharper into focus. That sign post says: America: Bridge Out. We as a nation must in general but as Christians in particular must not read into the sign, but read it for what it says. We as a nation have traveling down this road of destruction for many years, ignoring other “signposts”. We know how to clap, jump, shout and run around the church. But do we know stand up and speak up against unrighteousness and vote it out? If this nation is of the people, by the people and for the people and the surveys that are out that state 85-90% of Americans believe in God are correct, then Pastor why have you not instructed the people to preserve the freedoms of our country and vote in righteous leadership on a continual basis?
If we are God’s children, then why are you as the priest allowing us to pass through the fires of a governmental “Molech”? Why are calling unbelievers to bow their knee at the foot of the cross, yet tell believers to “pass through the fire” of voting unrighteous people into office saying that “Not to worry, God is in charge”? As a leader behind the sacred desk, the blood in on your hands. The only way to rectify this is to repent before God and His people (yes, in front of them) and change YOUR wicked ways. Speak forth righteous living AND righteous voting in the pulpit. Speak forth His righteous judgments, not only His tender mercies. Speak forth that this nation will be cursed if we do not support the nation of Israel (Genesis 12:3 is still valid to this very day). It is only then when we in the pew place a demand on our Pastors to do this or we resolve to walk away from these churches that continually preach unsound doctrine and let the Holy Spirit guide us in the way we need to go.
America, We are fast approaching the point of no return. Either we hit the brakes and do a 180 degree turn, or mash our foot on the gas and drive off the cliff heading hood first into the canyon of history that is so wide and deep no one would be able to hear the “splat”.
