Have you noticed lately that Christians are being singled out as a subnormal group of human beings? One editorial cartoon demonstrated the idiocy of Christians believing in creation and not evolution. The break-ins and damage to three churches in Hutchinson and the one-person complaint about prayers that actually recognize Jesus as the one to whom God is prayed to, all show how far we, as a people, have sunk in our relationship with decency and respect.
It is a small wonder that this is happening when you consider the lack of leadership, responsibility and morality that has been demonstrated and taught by the adult population?
We Christians have been the "quiet in the land" and have felt that we must keep a low profile while the uncivilized and unethical in our nation and other parts of the world seek to berate and, yes, even kill us for our belief in a power that is higher than man. Islamic extremists who seek out and kill Christians in Egypt, North Africa and most every nation in Asia and Eurasia attest to the anger and hate heaped on God and His followers.
Those who do not believe here in America may think it humorous to denigrate believers, but this denigration is only the beginning of a further anti-decency mind-set. How did we come to sink so low?
As in most cases, it starts slowly. When families do not attend worship regularly, fail to thank God for what He has provided for us in food and other blessings, and do not practice Christ's teachings, you get what we currently have. From here, it progresses to disrespect and overt aggression. Allowing messages like the political cartoon referred to in the Hutch paper only tends to feed this fire of anti-Christian bias.
Adults responsible for such allowances should be held accountable. We, the "quiet in the land," need to make our displeasure known to those who would disrespect and bring harm to the name of God and His followers, wherever they may be.
It might be well if we began to voice our beliefs openly and outwardly call to task those who force their anti-Christian behavior on everybody. Since our nation has a heritage as a Christian-founded country (sorry, M. Layne, we were established as a free Christian nation whose leaders commonly and regularly called upon God for guidance; study history), we should speak out and share what God has done for us and we must reach out to those in need as Jesus said we should.
Of course, every person must make their own decision based on their own conscience. My personal belief is that evil should be faced daily with the goal of bringing our nation and people back to what God envisioned at the beginning.
Are you happy with the way things are now? If you are, then let's invade more churches and castigate more believers. That way you will not be far behind Egypt and Asia. I think living the Christian life would be far better and less painful. Don't you?
Christians are crazy for not believing in evolution??? It takes more faith to believe a pseudo-science which has not a scintilla of proof!!!
It has long been my experience that the more truth there is to something, the more it enrages people who don’t want it to be true.
I've seen that with liberals all the time.
2 Timothy 3:1-5, 10-14
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . And from such people turn away!
“ all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned ...”
