I also hear that supposedly before Jesus Comes, we’ll be in a state of global anarchy. Real question is, when governments go corrupt, and AWOL, much less make religion the uncool thing to be, who will stay, and who will decide to go with the “cool” crowd? And who can we save when the Earthly politicians ditch their useful idiots?

This is a good article also, from a Catholic perspective. In fact, the comments following are better yet.

Bible-believing Christians will have children and bring them up in “the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” The ungodly champion the killing of their unborn.

Psalm 1 will always be true.

Biblical Christians ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD to start with. We’re just passing through. The train will be here soon to pick us up.

A lot of credibility was lost supporting a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, cult leading Mormon Bishop from Massachusetts, who believes that he is in the process of becoming a God, who actually campaigned claiming that Reagan was “adamantly pro-choice”, and who recently rejected the party platform on abortion and on homosexual Scout leaders, and homosexualizing the military.

I don’t know that it can be recovered anytime soon.

Oddly, or perhaps not, Christianity grows most when it is in a minority without government support. Look at Rome before Constatine, or modern day China. Not long ago some American pastors met with some Chinese underground pastors and said they would help them with Bibles, ministers, and money for buildings, The pastors said they didn’t want the help, that Christianity was exploding because people had to practice it in their homes, share Bibles, and become their own ministers.

“Rest easy, salvation does not come via government.”

Amen brother. Christians need to get used to the idea of practicing their beliefs in secret. It won’t be long before Christianity is deemed too (fill in the adjective) for modern day culture and is BANNED.

They will become marginalized only if they don't heed. 2 Chronicles 7:14.

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will 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.

Thanks for this awesome post! Post of the YEAR!

Many of us twisted in our conscience about voting at all for the top contenders, relented out of desperation. If voting for Romney was a test, by God, then even Christians, in their desperation, failed it. We did not trust God, but relied on the facts on the ground more. Two non- Christians up for the office of the president and we voted for the evil deeds of both by voting for one.

They were practically clones. Romney rolled the same number on Massachusetts first, and Obama followed suit on the nation. I regret my vote for Romney and will never vote like that again.

We don’t know what miracle God may have wrought for our sake had we all trusted Him rather than the dire path of the ballot box, caught up in the predicament of our time. I have learned a lot.
