God did not choose to give us a Christian candidate. Perhaps that was the fault of the divided Christian community. Instead, He gave us a person who is a “work in progress” like all of us. One who believes in justice and who has strong convictions not unlike most Christians but expresses those convictions in ways that are often unacceptable to most of us. However, they are sincerely held beliefs. The other candidate provides evidence every day of being a pathological liar who has repeatedly deceived the American people.
A City on a Hill. If the Church and we as Christians are called to be “the salt of the earth” . . . “the light of the world” . . . and to be “A city set on a hill” that should not be hidden (Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14), why is it so hard for many Christians to believe that God planted His church and His people in America for the sake of the nation?
From the very founding of our country God has given His church (and His people) the responsibility for the spiritual well being of the nation. He gave America a constitution based on Judeo-Christian values—not Islamic, not Hindu, not atheistic or any other). It has proved to be the best form of self-government the world has ever known. Ironically, but by political design, our educational system now teaches the value of the U.N. constitution and globalism and Islamic thought. These are two very different anti-freedom, anti-Christian and oppressive systems. Partly as a result of these re-education systems (and to a lesser degree, biblical interpretations), many Christians believe that they should not be involved in politics or hold political office. God foresaw this outcome of anti-God globalism with His revelation to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos nearly 2000 years ago.
As Christians living in America we are part of the most unique “experiment” in the history of the world—a self-governing people whose laws and way of life were founded on biblical principles. The Church was planted here in America for the sake of the country and the mandate of Christians to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.
As citizens of God’s Kingdom on earth we have a responsibility to demonstrate God’s love and righteousness in our midst; to be accountable for our actions or lack thereof in standing up for righteousness and mercy. I believe this is America’s last call for redemption. The advantage that Satan has is that the Church has always been divided by pettiness, pride, rivalry and biblical incidentals. We have untold denominations and sects, each believing they have the “truth”. Here is the “truth”—“a kingdom” (country) or “house divided cannot stand” (Matthew 12:25). America is divided mainly because the Church is divided.
For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17).
Founding Father, John Adams, in his Thoughts on Government (1776), wrote: Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it. It is the responsibility of the populace, the American people, including Christians, to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions and decisions and to make sure they are upholding the law of the land and not implementing their own for their own benefit or agenda. An election is the one best opportunity, bar a revolution, to bring about a change of government when one is needed.
John Adams, in a speech before the Militia of Massachusetts declared, Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other (October 11, 1798). Perhaps that is America’s biggest problem, we have fallen away from God and as a whole are no longer a people of faith. We have allowed our Constitution to be trashed by globalists and irreligious elitists with self-serving interests and not that of the people. God will hold Christians accountable for the outcome of America’s unique world contribution to self-government.
