Elijah addressed those words to the people of Israel, who had allowed themselves to be influenced by the false prophets of Baal. “How long halt ye between two opinions?” (I Kings 18:21) Apparently, many of them still retained some faith in God; but they evidently believed in Baal also. The prophet represented them as limping back and forth between the two views -- good and evil. Sometimes the people were strongly inclined toward God, and at other times disposed to follow the leading of the prophets of Baal.
The question forced the issue of whether to yield to the popular influences of the day or to return to the religion of their fathers. This was the question the people had to settle. To help them do so, the prophet arranged for a contest on Mount Carmel to settle this matter once and for all - if Baal was the true god or whether it was Jehovah.
Leaders in the church today limp between two sides -- good and evil – relevant issues and controversial topics, especially those they consider political issues. They forget that in today’s society, religious issues have been made political issues by government leaders. This includes the war declared on the home, family and the church.
Sadly, this challenge of forcing the issue between scriptural marriage between a man and woman versus gay marriage has gone unanswered. The result has allowed a vocal minority of liberal activists to radically change our culture in America while church leaders have become accommodating to the sins of homosexuality, pornography, abortion, Allah and political corruption.
The biggest issue facing the church and Christianity is the push by globalists to establish a one world government which would abolish our religious freedoms (and all our freedoms). Again, our leaders in the church go limping along doing whatever it takes to keep the members happy so they don’t become uncomfortable or dissatisfied and leave. The Bible is very plain on this topic and says if we don’t call out evil, God will hold us responsible (Ezak. 3:18-19). The Bible also says, “And be not conformed to this world” (Rom. 12:2).
I believe God has answered our prayers and chosen President Trump to force the question of the issue between good and evil in our country. He has ripped the mask off of a game that both the Democrats and Republicans have played in Washington for many years concerning waste, pay-for-play, fraud and incompetence. The President has laid out his convictions -- Make America Great Again. He has exposed his opponents true colors, and his supporters have rallied behind him.
President Trump says what everyone is thinking but is afraid to say. Church leaders are afraid to tackle the hot-button issues which many members want them to speak out on. A recent poll by the Barna Group asked the question -- what should the church stand against? Ninety-one ((91%) percent wanted to take a public stand on abortion, 86% wanted to address the persecution of Christians, 83% wanted to speak out about restoring morals, 82% wanted a clearer position on traditional marriage.
President Trump is truly crushing a corrupt system and giving our church leaders a great example of forcing the issue between good and evil. The mainstream media (owned by the globalists), the radical left, and professional politicians are so desperate that they have been forced to take extreme measures. Many members of Congress are nervously worried.
The bottom line is the majority of church leaders are limping between two side -- one to keep silent and the other to speak out. We need the total mobilization of all Christians in our nation to raise up and speak out against abortion, homosexuality, persecution of Christians, gay marriage and restore Christian values in America.
