Most of you know I don’t do much politicking. In fact, I abhor politics like some abhor root canals, prostate exams, or five o’clock traffic.
Even though I am currently in Romania, I do keep abreast of what is happening in the grand ole’ US of A, and this past weekend I read that the executive branch is actively working toward coercing the judicial branch of government, calling upon it to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act.
As I read this the only image to come to my mind was that of a man in the middle of the ocean clinging to a giant boulder even though it was gradually dragging him to the bottom of the deep. Somewhere in his mind the man must have known he ought to have let go of the boulder, but his need for self-preservation was overridden by his absolute desire to cling to the boulder at any cost.
We are a nation adrift in the middle of the ocean, clinging to a boulder and refusing to let go of it, even though we’re so far down beneath the surface of the waters the sun is barely a pinprick anymore.
Whether it is God hardening the hearts of men, or men becoming hardened in and of themselves, history teaches us that once a nation, a people, or an empire began the downward descent into the deep it never did let go of what was dragging it down.
It is a diabolical thing to behold what is currently happening in this nation. Upon realizing they could not turn enough towards evil and perversion, they chose to legislate evil and perversion and call it normal. Now, anyone daring to stand for truth, anyone daring to point out the utter disconnect between the will of the people and what our elected officials are doing, is berated and marginalized by a complicit media complex in thrall to the ruling system.
Throughout all these machinations, legislations, amendments and newly enacted laws, the church has been silent, as though distracted by some shiny thing out in the desert, or by the promise of a hundred fold return for their generous offering to the grinning face on television.
As far as the grinning faces are concerned, it is against their self-interest to sound the alarm or point out the reality of what is happening, because they like to have a pacified and placated audience who does not stir but for to write a check.
Evidently, the only way to get a rise out of a preacher today is by threatening to take away their tax exempt status, or to have congressional hearings forcing them to disclose their yearly income. It’s all about them, their selfish needs, and their selfish desires. Just a bunch of pimps offering services at reasonable rates, and as long as they get theirs they are indifferent toward anything else that might be going on.
The handful whose voices are becoming shrill from yelling ‘wake up’ realize that left unchecked, sooner than anyone realizes, it will be a crime punishable by law to stand for righteousness, and call sin, sin.
The enemy we face is playing for keeps, and he is not interested in a truce or an armistice. Especially when he feels as though he has gained ground, has the momentum, and has enough men and women in high office willing to do his bidding.
We are but fools if we think the enemy will let us be if we let him be. We are but fools if we think keeping silent will keep the enemy from getting around to us. It is not the silencing of righteousness, nor is it the crippling of righteousness the enemy is interested in. It is the extermination of righteousness. This is what we must understand in order to rightly contextualize what is presently occurring in America.
With love in Christ,
