Many Christians are remaining silent or turning away from politics. They say you can’t be involved. The Amish take this view but even they will participate on a local level.
I admit I was hesitant with a Biblical response until I read an article on the Conservative Pundits site. I encourage all to read it. (Read here)
The hatred we are witnessing today against Christians and even Jews of course is considered persecution. But consider this, tyrannical leaders across the globe even in America are rising.
Tyranny takes many forms, oppression takes many forms. The tyranny we are witnessing today in America is democratic mind control and gaslighting period. And we are not supposed to speak or stand against it?
Thomas Jefferson said:
“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
What if our founding Fathers would have shrank from political tyranny?
That’s why Hitler was so successful in slaughtering the Jews. Good people remained silent for too long. It’s a documented fact that churches close to the rails carrying Jews to their death turned up the music so they couldn’t hear their screams.
We are doing that today. Christians are again being slaughtered in Africa and across the Middle East while we here turn up the music. Rashida Tlaib recently tweeted about a Palestinian child being killed by Israel and it was a fabricated report.(more)
She is a hater of Israel and even the America she claims to serve. Why? You can’t love America and tout the vile hateful things she does. Remember she called our President a Mother…..
The rest of the squad is no different than Pelosi, Schiff or the rest. They claim to serve and love the Constitution but exhibit behavior that speaks otherwise.
They love to scream and cry about children yet they are silent on the multiple reports that Mexico is using children as young as 5 to fight in the war against gang violence. Or the children used as shields by Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran.
Remember Gods word tells us we will know them by their fruits.
Again I don’t agree with everything about Donald Trump but he speaks for life, he puts America first and does not hate Israel.
The tyrannical behavior of the left is reaching a boiling point. Will you take a stand and speak out or will you be boiled alive like a frog?
Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best. “Silence in the face of evil is evil itself. “
The Bible doesn’t tell us to cower in darkness in the face of tyranny. In fact it’s the opposite, we were not given a spirit of timidity but of power.
What if the Apostles had run in the face of evil and tyranny. We wouldn’t have Christianity today.
I’m not advocating violence but it is our duty to stand firm against evil, and lies. It’s been said silence is itself one of the deadly sins. I agree. George Soros said the world will collapse in 2020. He doesn’t like the new trade deal with China or President Trump, Soros wants open borders and one world order. At least one country has banned him. There are rumors that the epidemic in China is related to biochemical leaks. Makes you wonder.
I end with Paul:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11
