Silence of the Lambs in America

If you call yourself a Christian, PLEASE read this ... and then ask your pastors why they aren't talking about it.


In present-day America, we are being bombarded with increasingly dire headlines about the condition of our nation. Common elements among these headlines of domestic disorder and discontent are reports of unbridled government overreach into our lives, from much-publicized gun control laws, warrantless searches and seizures, to the perverse and absurdly shameful degradation of our human dignity at the hands of the TSA and the DHS.

Today, we are facing an assault on our freedoms for which those who lived before us have shed their blood, entrusting us with the gift of an indivisible nation under God. Yes, under God.

Time seems to have separated us from the ultimate sacrifices of our forefathers, for we no longer see their blood that once stained dirt on the battlefields of America. We no longer relate to the sorrows of our ancestors or their sacrifices, nor do we feel the pride of their successes. We are no longer taught the history of a nation that freed itself from tyranny and oppression. Instead, we are subjected to the deliberate perversion of history that characterizes our founders as terrorists—along with portraying those of us who object to such depictions as threats to the state—by an ever-increasing totalitarian government operating in tandem with modern-day academia and a state-sponsored press.

As God-believing Americans who cherish the rights bestowed upon us and enumerated within our Constitution (perhaps better known in the Western media as “bitter clingers”), we are in the midst of the destructive transformation of our nation. The tinder is present and ready for ignition, needing only one spark from any source to ignite America into a state of chaos that would result in a tyrannical clampdown.

The firewall to prevent this transformation—the Christian leaders and the body of the church—is crumbling by inaction and outright apostasy. The parallels between the present-day United States and Hitler’s Germany are evident.

Go read the whole thing. And pastors, if you're not talking to your parishioners/congregation about this ... why not?

One reason I am no longer a member of any church despite having very strong Baptist roots and ancestral ties to a church only a few miles away. None of them today seem to hold to the social and political values I do. They all seem to be more devoted to the present day Feminist/Liberal/Gia/Multi-Cult religion than Christianity.

Or so it seems to me.

"Once I was a Baptist, 'til Jesus set me free..." (/singing)

Preppy, I hear you. I was raised Southern Baptist myself, but haven't been one in many years. And for the same reason.

" . . we no longer see their blood that stained the dirt on the battlefields of America."

And stained the soils of oppressed people around the world.

Yes. Where are the voices in the pulpits, and from our politicians? We whisper to fellow conservatives about our concerns and then politely smile and wave hello to our liberal neighbors . . don't want to give offense as our rights are drained away.

Rev. Paul said...

Well said, Cathy. Well said.

Old NFO said...

Yep, this NEEDS to be talked about, and not just in church!!!

Rev. Paul said...

I couldn't agree more, NFO. Exactly right.

Our Sunday school is reading and discussing Micah at the moment. How much what he says speaks to us today!

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord let his face shine upon you and give you peace,


Rev. Paul said...

I'm glad to hear of any church which teaches from the Word of God, and not just the local headlines and/or the Reader's Digest. Thank you, PolyKahr.
