A Call To Action

As I watch the world continue to get worse by the hour I stand by in shock.
Not in shock of the sin our world has accepted as the new normal, but in shock of the reaction to the sin.
 Or lack of reaction.
Where are the Christians who are willing to fight for what we believe is right? Where are the men who are willing to stand up and protest against the way women are being treated?
Where are the people who will raise opposition to little boys who say they would rather be girls and their families who just accept it?
Who will defend biblical marriage when lesbian and gay marriages have just become legal?
Who will raise their voice in protest against abortion?

Christians where are you?

There is a battle to be fought and it’s time for action. It’s time to step up to the plate and show the world what it looks like when Christians join together and oppose what is going on in the world around us. How much longer will we sit silently watching the world decay at such a rapid pace.
Matthew 5 says Christians are to be salt.
What does salt do?
It stops decaying; it preserves things.
Christians are called to stop the decay in the world.
So why aren’t we doing that? Why aren’t we going out in strong opposition against society? What is holding us back?

I think Christians are afraid, afraid of what people might say, afraid of what people will think about them, afraid to make a mistake.
Christians are called to humility. We need to show the world that we aren’t,
 “pure and righteous”.
We are striving towards being pure and righteous but we will never achieve it. We will make mistakes just like unbelievers do. So many unbelievers think that Christians believe they’re perfect, but that’s far from the truth.
Making mistakes isn’t going to turn people away from Christ, but in fact it will often cause the reverse effect. When a non-believer sees a Christian who is humble enough to admit when they are wrong then it will make it obvious that anything we do that is “pure and righteous” has to come from the Lord and not ourselves.

It’s time to step up. It’s time to live out the calling the Lord gave us in Matthew 5 when He commanded us to be salt to the world and stop the decay. This isn’t the time when we should be sitting back in defeat saying the world is already too far down the path of sin. Now is the time to take action and preserve what is left of our society and bring our country back to Christ.

Christians, your calling is clear.
Will you sit back and watch or will take up arms and fight this battle which is before us?
