I ran across a message on youtube that spoke to me and it explains much of what is going on in the world and Our Country. If you have about an hour and you want to get a message that explains things I would encourage you to watch the video.
I think back of the freedoms given to “We the people” and the religious freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and it really weighs on my mind when I see where we as a country are and where it looks like we are going. I see articles and hear about cities, states and the federal government filing law suits against Churches, to stop their free expression of their faith.
I hope Church’s and the members wake up and stand up in time. When any government agency tries to limit the expression of faith in any way for one Church. That Church along with all the members of that Church plus every other Church and Christian in the area should be protesting and making their voice heard. Christians as a group need to stand up, speak out and let the government, courts, newspapers etc. know that we will no longer be quiet and let them run over us!
I keep thinking about this and the fact that it keeps coming to my mind tells me to comment on it. There is quite a bit of information out there, yet too many people don’t consider it important. For many years I didn’t bother voting. I had the same thoughts as many ” My vote doesn’t matter “, ” It’s only one vote “, along with many other excuses. Hopefully if you read this post and watch the videos and follow the links you will realize as I did that your vote does matter and if enough people will vote their biblical values things will change.
The first thing is John Hagee Ministries has T Shirts available saying Vote The Bible. I have ordered mine because it is a message to anyone you come in contact with. Order yours here Vote The Bible T Shirt.
The next thing is John Hagee has preached a whole series about voting biblical values, it was from before the 2012 elections but it is still valid today and time is growing shorter. You can listen at http://podbay.fm/show/461747136/e/1314745985?autostart=1
Then there are things from David Barton at Wallbuilders
Thank You for reading and I hope it helps clear up the urgency I feel to encourage people to vote.
You hear people using this point all the time to justify stopping Christian content in public places.
Actually what The Founders said was the government should not have a say in religion. Not that religion should have no place in government.
Ran across this video on youtube about how the US Military is targeting the Christian Faith. I intend to talk to my Congressman and Senators about this and I would encourage everyone to do the same. The military gives up certain freedoms but the 1st amendment should not be one of them.
James Madison said
“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
To me this says we have freedom OF religion, not freedom from religion. It is time Christian’s claim their Constitutional rights. Congress (the government) is forbidden by the 1st Amendment from either promoting one religion over another or stopping “We The People” from exercising our religion.
When Christian’s understand what is at stake (and I pray the time is now), they (Christian’s) will get out and vote. When we do this attack on The Constitution will end because the people who want to violate our God given rights will no longer be getting elected.
The 1st Amendment also says that we have a right to PEACEABLY assemble (the key word is peaceably, not riot or cause damage or trouble) and demand that our grievances are addressed. What we are seeing is a violation of that very right when anyone who tries to voice a view different than Progressives is targeted by the IRS so they can’t speak or express their concerns.
Christian’s it is time to Stand Up and Speak UP.
God Bless America
