I know that many of you are as weary of the goings on in our nation's capitol as I am. I hesitate to turn on the news now days because of what I'm likely going to see or hear. Our nation is on a slippery slope headed south and the people who are going to be hurt by it the worst are the conservative Christians. Our rights are being chipped away at an alarming rate and it terrifies me to think about the world my children will inherit.
Let's look at the numbers- According to a 2012 poll by the American Religious Identification Survey, 76% of American adults identify as Christian. That's a huge number of people. I'm sure that a portion of those people aren't sincere but let's for a minute imagine that they are. 3 out of 4 people say they are Christians in this nation. If every one of those people sent a letter to the White House demanding that President Obama stop pandering to the left and listen to the people who pay his bills, it might have an impact. If even half the proclaimed Christians in this country would stand up and shout, he would have no choice but to hear!
Right now the people who have his ear is the very liberal- and loud- minority. The LGBT groups, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, The Anti Gun super pac's who are lining his pockets. The reason he isn't hearing us is because for some reason Christians seem to think that we're not allowed to get angry, we're not aloud to shout or make ourselves heard! Well listen to this: In the book of Matthew, chapter 21:12-13 it says:
12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.
Jesus himself got angry, made a whip, and made Himself heard in order to demand righteousness! He flipped tables over in his anger!
If we, the Christian majority, are to take our nation back, we must make ourselves be heard! We must stand up and fight for what we know is right. Jesus wouldn't stand back and silently watch while these things happened in front of Him and neither should we. Simply voting is not enough. We must stand up and make our national representatives hear us. They are there to REPRESENT us...not tell us what to do! We hired them, we pay their bills, we are the employers and they are the employees! If they don't do their job, we need to fire them!
Join with me in a letter writing campaign to the White House- The People's House (the one we've recently been kicked out of because the president doesn't want to cut frivolous spending) and demand to be heard. Call the White House switchboard. Be respectful because we are representing Christ but even Christ got angry.
