While observing the political posturing on both sides of the aisle whether it’s Conservatives “debating” each other, or Liberals trying to consolidate and hold on to power that they have the one thing I have noticed is that those in the pulpit are eerily silent of our freedoms being slowly but steadily taken away from us. From preachers being arrested, tried but (thankfully) acquitted of preaching the Gospel on a street corner. To the United States Military having the authority to act like civilian police, searching and seizing what they choose (defying the 4th Amendment) and to arrest and detain U.S. citizens indefinitely and without a trial (defying the 6th Amendment) under Senate Bill S. 1867.
These are two of many examples I can cite that have the markings of “Pax Romana” (Roman Peace) Where the religious leaders of the day have by active intent or passive agreement kept the people “in line”, in exchange to continue to function unabated by the government. To many the response would be “What’s the difference”? ‘God’s will is going to be done anyway”. My rebuttal would be Yes. But will it be done because of your choice or in spite of it? Why? As an example, the person in charge of the judge who acquitted the two preachers is Barbara E. Hartle, a hand picked appointee of Annise Parker – an open lesbian who is the Mayor of Houston. What would be the chances of this even coming to trial in the first place if Christian voters would have not been actively deceived or passively not voting for Annise Parker? It is a testament to how illiterate the Christian is toward history – both Biblical and American.
We are on the verge of signing over our rights as citizens because those that are “professional clergy” tell us not to worry, “God is in control”. While that is ultimately true, the one thing that God can not control is your choice. It is you who voted for the leader over you, not God. Therefore it is you not God that will hold them accountable for their votes. Mr Obama, was telling the truth when he said “I will fundamentally transform this country….”. How right he was, and look how far he has come.
2012 will be a year where the decisions made will transform our nation and we as a people significantly and permanently. If there is a time to get a vise grip type hold on what a Biblical worldview is and how that translates into American history and politics the time is now.
To those who still “wax nostalgic” and wish they could live in the 1st century with Jesus, my reply is “Rest assured, your “dream” is about to come true”.
