. . . and with him will be his called, chosen, and faithful followers. Revelation 17:14 NIV
Last week SCOTUS upheld a key issue with Obamacare. This week, the majority voted that gay marriage is a federal right. Those Justices were put in office for life by Presidents who probably wouldn’t have been elected if conscientious objector Christians had voted.
Obamacare will bankrupt our country, but so what? What’s fiscal bankruptcy when we, as a country, are so nearly morally and spiritually bankrupt?
We need godly leaders.
I’m encouraged—but not as those are who celebrate this decision. I’m encouraged that Scripture has been further validated, and that Home is getting closer all the time. At the same time, I’m appalled. Yesterday was Independence Day—but we’re losing freedoms left and right.
I’ve never understood why hunger strikes work. If you don’t cave in and give pets and kids and dissidents what they’re holding out for, they (except for those whose soul-deep convictions override physical need) will get hungry and eat the good food you give them.
How can anyone think that withholding their vote in protest gives them more power to make changes? Many liberals will have compassion if they see you hungry for food, but what’s it to them if you don’t vote? More power, that’s what.
What if RFRA is struck down, or revised and passed with no teeth?
Would you just roll over if government jailed you or took your property or your business for trying to be true to your conscience? Or will you call your congressman and senator now and insist that they pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act?
We need godly citizens who vote. We who know God’s truth are charged as stewards. Will you maintain your ‘hunger strike’ as one more liberal judge is appointed for life to SCOTUS? That’s all it will take to nix our chance to make changes through the system.
Jesus said, “You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.” He’s constantly checking our faithfulness here to see how much He can trust us with at Home. Have Christians who throw away their voting power been faithful in the small things?
Nine judges in black robes, or one Judge in a white robe? SCOTUS is not supreme, Avi; You are. I don’t believe there’s a candidate alive who can bring us back from this brink of destruction, but You can do it. Please protect us from our foolishness, and help us to do better. In Your holy name, Amen.
