We are living in a time when the words of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah are especially appropriate concerning the great moral divide in our nation today. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20). This text reveals that some in the ancient society had become so corrupt that they had lost all sense of moral direction.
This is the same attitude that the left has adopted as their agenda today. It has become the party of hatred, lies, Communists, Socialists, deceit, baby killers, Islamists, sexual perverts and anti-Americans. What God condemns, they affirm. What God punishes, they exalt. We must remember that sin is sin, whatever it may be called; and that God is not pleased by our attitude of, “I don’t discuss politics.”
My friend, if you, as a Christian, ignore politics now, evil politics will erase your right to be a Christian very soon! In today’s society, religious issues have been made into political issues by our government sticking its nose into the business of the home, family and church.
Leaders in the church and Christians can no longer not challenge our corrupt government policies and not take a Biblical stand for the truth. This challenge has gone unheeded by the majority of church leaders and Christians. The tragic results have allowed a vocal minority of radical, liberal activists to radically change our culture in America. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and give in to the sin of tolerance, which accepts anything and everything that society believes and practices, regardless of what it is!
Our culture has accepted two great lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both views are pure nonsense!
Christians don’t have to compromise their convictions to be compassionate toward others. How long are we going to bury our heads in the sand and say, “I don’t discuss politics.” How long are we going to use Pilate’s washbowl? How long are we going to sit around and let sin, with all of its consequences, run rampant because we don’t want to be called, “politically incorrect?” When is the last time you heard anything from the pulpit about sins going on in our society today? The fact is when we become tolerant toward sin, we have committed a sin!
In the last election, 54 million Christians stayed at home and didn’t vote. There are now 72 million registered Democrats in this country. Are they going to identify themselves with a party that believes it is alright to kill innocent babies? If Christians would simply vote Biblical values, not party, nor race, we can turn this country around.
We as Christians can conform to the dictates of society, or we can heed one of the great imperatives that the Apostle Paul gave to “transform” those about us, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed, that ye may prove what is good and acceptable” (Rom. 12:2). It is all too easy to follow the crowd and gradually be molded into a pattern that the world follows.
The spiritual chaos of the wicked in our society today is like a chicken with its head cut off. Its body is in a state of complete confusion, doesn’t know what it’s doing or where it’s going!
We must defend the truth of God’s word and stand up against the evils in our society.
