A very hostile wind is clearly blowing against Christians by those wanting to bring in a one world government, MSM, LGBT, Islam and many liberal judges throughout our country. This religious hostility is the red light on the dashboard that tells us we have a major problem. The loss of religious freedom will come next if we remain silent any longer.
What started out with Christian bakers, florists, and photographers has now blossomed into something much larger. It appears, in most media outlets, including our MSM which is owned by global elitists and even in some textbooks, that Christianity has a large bull’s-eye on it and is painted in a negative light.
The global elitists are using Saul Alinsky’s plan to create a social state and bring in their one world government. The USA is the big domino which must fall before the one world government can be put into place. They must remove our belief in God and take it out of government, schools, and society. This also includes removing the ability to defend ourselves from the new government, so a police state can be set up.
To say that Christians and Christianity are under a brutal attack in certain areas of the world is an understatement. In different parts of the Middle East, there is a genocidal cleansing of Christians being carried out. Here in the USA, Christians and Christianity is being mocked, belittled, smeared, and attacked on a daily basis. Hostility to religion in America is rising like floodwaters. This flood is engulfing ordinary citizens who simply try to live normal lives according to their faith.
The “Survey of Hostility to Religion in America” is published by First Liberty Institute, which is a large, non-profit legal organization that strives to protect religious liberty. It documents more than 1,200 legal cases involving persons who believe they have been discriminated against in 2017 because of their religious beliefs.
Religious liberty is our first freedom in the Bill of Rights. Once we lose it, then we lose our political liberty and all others. Those at the altar of political correctness, driven by global elitists, have deemed that Christianity should no longer be respected. The MSM assails Christianity on a daily basis in order to try to weaken it and remove it.
For example, The New Yorker magazine just described the opening of a few Chick-fil-A restaurants, owned by Christians in New York City, as “pervasive Christian traditionalism.” The California Senate (Bill 2943) would ban all transactions involved in stating Christian beliefs about homosexual behavior. This could open the door to banning the Bible and other Christian literature. Some communities in California are already banning Bible studies in peoples’ homes.
In colleges across our nation, they now teach about the evils of “Christian privilege.” America’s Christian collages are under constant assault from so-called social justice warriors trying to strip their accreditation away and put them out of business. A high school football coach is fired for giving a Bible to a student who requested it. A Marine is court-martialed for not removing a Bible verse from her computer. Starbuck’s CEO says if you support traditional marriage, don’t buy their coffee. In Florida, a straight “A” student is failed for keeping her faith in the existence of God.
How should Christians respond to a hostile society? We must stand up and be firm in our Biblical convictions! We must not compromise them. We must defend the truth of God’s word and stand up against the evils in our society. The time to protest the infringement of our religious freedom is now, because for too long, our religious leaders have given a free pass to evil and evil doing.
The prophet told Judah, “Stand ye in the ways, ask for the old paths” (Jer. 6:16). Sadly, their response was often our response today, “We will not.” Christians must awaken to the global crisis which has the goal of destroying our religious freedom.
