Wake Up! Chuck Baldwin Speaks.

Current Pastor and Former Constitution Party Presidential Candidate had an awesome blog post recently. While at the end, he turns it into a sales pitch for his new book (which deals with the right to defend oneself based on scripture), all of his point are extremely valid. A major point of contention of his is the silence coming from our church leaders.

Can one imagine what would happen in this country if half of these pastors would get up in their pulpits this Sunday and sound the clarion call to stand up and fight these insidious encroachments against our liberties? What if 25% would? What would happen if only 10% would rise up and take a stand?

I constantly face the attitude from fellow believers that all we as Christians should do in the realm of politics is pray “cause God will take care of us.” While I don’t disagree entirely with the power of prayer, I believe that we serve a God of action. Action is a sign of faith and we are to live by faith. I have also heard the counter argument that maybe God doesn’t give freedom as a right. The thought process on that is that the Old Testament laid out rules for slavery and servitude. My thought on that is the same as divorce. God doesn’t like it, but realized that it was going to happen (as he gave us free will) so he laid out some basic ground rules. He is a gracious God and a loving father. How many of us parents gave freedom to our children and even said what would happen when they did something they we didn’t approve of. That it a post for another day.

I like Chuck and I really like what he is saying in his post. We need to stand up for our nation and we need to know that to do so is within our right as Christians. Pass this along.

God and Freedom

Not very often do my two blogs intersect, but due to current events, I do feel as though there is some intersect: Freedom. See, I believe that God as the Creator gave us free will. He chose to allow us to choose not to worship Him, knowing that some would choose that and have the consequence of hell.Everything else flows from that. In other words, God (who is omniscient) granted us freedom. I do not understand why He chose this, other than He loves us. It is a complete, uncompromising love. A love that He knew would have deadly repercussion  but a love is unwavering. America’s Founding Fathers recognized that and included it into the Constitution. The Bill of Rights doesn’t grant us those freedoms, it merely protects them from a tyrannical government.

Those rights are under attack and the general populace seems apathetic to even notice it. As long as they have their dose of reality TV and McDonalds, everything is copacetic. This is very frustrating for someone such as myself, who tends to see things in absolutes. There is no budging; no compromise. My God gave me this, who are you to take it away. Today it is guns, tomorrow it is privacy (already under attack), the next it is religion. We need to stop this assault in its tracks and stand up for our freedoms.

 

This is one of the greatest quotes ever!

This is how I feel, and I will not apologize for it.
