What got America in this position can be squarely be blamed on the American " Christian Church." Now I know I'm not going to make many friends here but it's Ok. I want to be known for Truth bearing, not wishy-washy stories making people feel good about themselves and or win a popularity contest. Nope, that isn't me and if you have been reading my blog articles, you know I don't mince my words that way any how.
Back to the American Church. The American Church has become a large breeding ground of theologies, mix of religions, feel good sermons, and meetings for doctrines of demons. Gone are many of the Bible believing churches in America. Right about now, if you are still reading along you are probably saying something like "Boy Pastor Paul, you're tough on us." Well, I've heard that from people previously at times but I will ask you to do what I have asked some of those others that have heard me share before.... Please stick with me until I have completed this article.
Let me continue, there is evidence, proof if you will to what I stated earlier. Just a few examples; Look at the Divorce and Abortion rates of Christians as compared to the world. They are the same. There should be an inner alarm being set-off by the Holy Spirit within you right now if you belong to Christ. If this information does not disturb you, I'd have to ask you to see if your belong to Christ or perhaps you may only be "religious."
This whole mess we currently have with our American and State's Governments are way out of control, that responsibility of the mess however, belongs to the Church. For years, some pastors told their congregant's that "Christians don't vote." Christians have been guilty of letting "the other guy take care of it." while we Christians argue about what food to serve at strawberry socials and parking lot spot assignments. We Christians, have become fat, lazy and little use to the Lord Jesus Christ, unless(Well, here is where a little of what perhaps you have been waiting for the "good part"...)we have been faithful to not become pew potato's and or as some pastors do, preach messages only to "the choir." God has little use for much of the American Church today(just look at how many "christians" and "churches" celebrate Halloween-another blog article I suppose). We need to take a good long Biblical look at ourselves and "man-up" for the blame, where the blame belongs.
Let me move on to how the True Church ca help save America as a nation; If we repent as an individual, a people a nation belonging to Christ, a True Repentance, we may be able to keep America from being destroyed. Repentance is the first step of healing....
Read 2Chronicles 7:14 in the Bible
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
There is a part here that we as Christians take responsibility in ACTION... We must repent. We are the one's who belong to Christ, not the world. We then pray, then God will heal our land. Will God some how magically make things right without us doing anything more ? That's it? Repent and pray ? It's just faith you say Pastor Paul ? NOPE, read further....
James 2: 17-20
|Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.|
|Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.|
|Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. |
Philippians 2:15 says we should "shine like stars" in a "crooked and depraved generation" Let's all rise above the evil. Let us all shed any compromise or dullness that we have in our relationship with Christ Jesus. It's time Christian American's to get out from the pews, the pulpits and go full force to reverse what evil we have allowed so the the Lord will restore to us what we have allowed to be lost by our own hands.
