It is time that we face a harsh reality: our pastors are not speaking the truth to us. Is it because they don’t know the truth? In some cases that would be a resounding “yes.” Is it because they have believed the politically correct lie that “all voices and peoples should have a place at the table?” Is it because there is some notion out there that Christian love tolerates all ideologies and passes judgement on none?
Is it because they do not believe in the demonic? Is the problem sin in the ranks..?
It is a rare voice that is heard saying what needs to be said. It is a rare voice that will declare with authority “Thus saith the Lord.” It is a rare voice that will call for repentance on the part of the people. It is a rare voice that has discernment and understanding, and a rarer voice that is in possession of wisdom.
We are entering into desperate times for civilization and watching as barbarism sweeps across the land. The ideologies that are cruel and hate-filled and wrong seem to be holding sway, and sweet reasonableness and clarity of understanding are missing from our leaders.
Who could countenance supporting evil that destroys women and children and butchers the innocent? Yet leaders across America are silent in the face of hideous atrocities, or they attempt to appease those who we should not tolerate for a moment, those who should be wiped away as an insult to humanity itself.
Insanity and the diabolical are ruling the day, and it is time that the pulpits of the land resounded with the voices of God’s word, his direction and his challenge to right living. To tolerate evil is to insult the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to spit in the face of the innocent and the righteous who die daily because the wickedness of Islam is allowed to flourish an ocean away.
When the evils of that distant disease come to our shores, multiplies and begins to wipe out the civilization once known as the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, will you recognize your part in destroying the heritage that we should be leaving our children? Will you lament that you were silent and did not speak out against this evil? Were you silent in the pulpit? If you were silent, shame on you. If you do not turn from your wicked ways, the Republic will be destroyed by an evil that we welcomed to our shores and gave the keys to the kingdom.
Forgive us Lord, and spare our nation as we do what we must, emboldened by Your Leadership and directed by Your Word.
