Call to Action
Being the “avoider of confrontation and debate” that I am, I generally steer clear of politics on my blog. However, to me this goes beyond politics. In my not-so-humble opinion, it is the complacency of the Christians who have gone before us that has led to the moral decay in this country. I think we are on the verge of being judged by God and that scares me.
I don’t think it’s too late, though.
“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
We have to turn, though. We have to pray. We have to seek God’s face. And, we have to act.
“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4:17
So, what is it that I feel that I ought to do? I ought to be praying fervently, staying informed, keeping my head out of the sand, and contacting my state representatives to let them know how I, one of their constituents, feel on issues of importance. The following are two issues that I feel are of critical importance:
Obama and Global Education
This is scary stuff. It’s beyond frightening to me to think of our children being raised by the government, rather than their parents. I think we’ve given our government far too much power and have expected it to do far too much for us. When we expect the government to pay for each of its citizens to have a cell phone and digital TV reception, we’ve crossed the line between asking for a hand up and asking for a hand out.
But maybe that’s just me.
I totally agree. And I voted for Obama. But seriously is digital tv a neccesity in life? I fyou want a new T.V. get a J.O.B.
You are correct. We all need to get involved.
I absolutely agree, Kris.
I nominated you for an Honest Scrap award today. Check it out:
I totally agree with this… the issues going on are downright frightening..
I completly agree. I on the other did NOT vote for Obama. I had a feeling of his new goverment ideas, and they scare me from the get go. Too much involvment from them is NOT what we need. Very well written.
It’s definitely not just you! I totally agree. It really is scary listening to the whole TV thing on the news. You would think people literally can’t survive without one. It sounds like a really great way to control people without them ever realizing it. It gives me the shivers.
ITA!!! These are very serious times as a Christian. My Pastor gave a great message yesterday. He basically said that in our history the times where people grew near to God were the times in Crisis. It is a possiblility that we could have a revival in America….we must awaken as Christians, many in this world right NOW are looking for hope….these are desperate times. God has allowed a huge financial crisis. I love what Paul says…”For I have learned for whatsoever state I am in therewith to be content”. Thankfully with my family, our hope is NOT in this world, the economy…it is in the blessed hope of Christ!
Great post Kris!
It IS scary. Thanks for posting those links.
