Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:10,11).
Ladies, I normally like to stay out of politics. I don’t have any faith in any politicians anymore. It’s all about power for the leaders, whether they are Democrats or Republicans. Nobody, except for perhaps Ron Paul, even remembers that they are supposed to be “public servants”. Our country is totally upside down from when it was founded.
And whose fault is that? It’s ours, my friends. What can we do about it? In the past I would have suggested that your vote is critical and you should get yourself educated on the issues and be careful how you vote. Today, I think that it is too late.
I can’t state it any better than Mr. Doug Casey, who told Anthony Wile of The Daily Bell -(August 28, 2012), “Well, if you vote the bums out you are just going to get a new set of bums. What kind of people do you think want to be politicians? Primarily sociopaths. The elections are a ridiculous charade performed every four years. People imagine that if you vote for Tweedledum, that he will somehow be an improvement over Tweedledee.
There is vanishing little difference between the left wing of the Republicrat Party and the right wing of the Demopublican Party; they’re really the same thing. They are both philosophical statists and collectivists. The only difference between the two US parties is that while the Republicans pretend to like the free market, they definitely dislike social freedom. And while the Democrats pretend to like social freedom, they definitely hate economic freedom. What a choice! There’s no real difference between them; they’re just distinctions of rhetoric.
…Is it the people’s fault? Of course. They’re all trying to live at the expense of everyone else through the state. I don’t vote because I don’t want to be complicit in the corrupt process. I urge others not to vote. You may recall, during the Viet Nam War, that they used to say, “Suppose they gave a war and nobody came.” I like to say, “Suppose they gave an election and nobody voted.” Entirely apart from the fact that your vote doesn’t count, I’m not interested in feeding more power to the system. Politics, which is an innately coercive process, should be de-legitimized through non-support.”
Yes, it is our fault because we have become dependent on the government.
But more importantly than that, we have not looked to God as our Provider. We have lost faith in God; that is the real problem. Even worse, we have created a false god – the government.
I believe that there is still time to regain some of the freedoms that we have lost. But it will take hard work and much sacrifice.
Just look at what has been happening while we are trying to convince ourselves that everything will be ok. While Christians are busy hoping the whole controversy will just resolve itself somehow, the workers of evil have pushed ahead and now control the media, most of the politicians, and most of the large corporations bow to them as well.
Consider these news items:
1. From (LifeSiteNews.com, August 23, 2012): “The leader of an organization that may have been targeted by the man who opened fire at the Family Research Council says the Justice Department has done nothing to investigate credible threats of violence against it, because the Obama administration applies “different tiers of protection” to Christians than it does to Muslims, abortionists, and homosexual activists.”
Why are Christians allowed to be targeted, but not Muslims, abortionists, or homosexuals? How does our president get away with going against the Constitution which guarantees equal protection under the law for all religions?
2. From (MRC.org, August 13, 2012): Media repeatedly ignores violent attacks against pro-lifers, but lots of Tom Cruise divorce coverage.
“Violent attacks on pro-lifers are on the rise. So where is the mainstream media coverage?”
“Fanatical.” “Extremism.” They’re the kind of words often applied to abortion opponents, and indeed, over the last year there’s been a drastic increase in violent attacks over the abortion issue. The problem is that fanatical extremism is taking the form of violence against pro-lifers. Peaceful protestors exercising their First Amendment rights have been repeatedly physically attacked.”
Just in July there have been five attacks against pro-lifers without any mention in major media outlets. But what was news? What were the major news outlets – say, ABC, CBS and NBC – covering Pro-Life organizations are also allowed to be targeted. You don’t hear much about this because the mainstream media refuses to tell us about it. Though there were five attacks last month alone, there has not been one story from the media.
Why aren’t Christians demanding fair coverage of the crimes against them?
3. One thing you will have to search for, because the media isn’t interested in telling you, is the recent Gallup Poll on trends in “Pro-Choice” views on abortion. Thanks to ultrasound and other scientific developments that show beyond a doubt that the being in the womb is indeed a real human baby, many women who were ok with abortion before, now believe that it is wrong. The poll shows that in just the last three years, the change in women’s views on abortion has gone 4% toward the pro-life side. That is wonderful news, but the leaders in Planned Parenthood don’t want you to know this and they have a lot of power. Consider that our president gives them whatever they want. When one southern state cut off their funding of Planned Parenthood, Obama gave PP the money to replace it.
Why are Christians allowing this evil alliance to work against us?
4. And then there are the blatant lies that the media promulgates. Look at this fantastic piece of propaganda for Planned Parenthood:
From (LifesiteNews.com, August 22, 2012) – Huh? Fox News claims that Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions, only does referrals.
“Fox News anchorwoman Martha MacCallum stated today the Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the United States, does not perform abortions, but only refers women to abortion providers if they so wish.”
How can she say this with a straight face? The truth is that nationwide, Planned Parenthood kills around 330,000 unborn children every year. On its own website, PP lists abortion first as a service. The largest abortion clinic in the country is run by PP in Houston, Texas.
Why aren’t Christians protesting against Fox News for an “unfair” and “unbalanced” report?
We are losing the war precisely because we are not going forward in the battles that are clearly before us. What will it take, ladies?
The media, Planned Parenthood, and Obama are targeting Christians because they are afraid of Christians. They want to shut us up because deep down, they know if we ever rose up and demanded truth and justice, they would lose. We have God and the truth on our side. Let’s stop being idle. Jesus Christ saved us, not so that we could live a selfish, contented life. He saved us for a purpose. It is for the glory of God. We honor and give God glory when we serve others. Let’s get to work!
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I presson in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12).
