We Must Stop Giving Ground!
Well it is that time of year again, No I am not talking about the Christmas Season that we as Christians celebrate the earthly birth of Jesus Christ. I am talking about the time of year when flaming liberals go out of their way to scare people into believing that political correctness is a law. The latest demonstration of this farce comes from the state of Washington.
From the AP
An atheist group has unveiled an anti-religion placard in the state Capitol, joining a Christian Nativity scene and "holiday tree" on display during December. The atheists' sign was installed Monday by Washington members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a national group based in Madison, Wis.
With a nod to the winter solstice — the year's shortest day, occurring in late December — the placard reads, there is no god, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."
Ahh, political correctness…what a blessing! It is easier to be politically correct than it is to stand for what you believe. As Christians, we seem to often to allow ourselves to sit back and be dictated to by the world. After all, we don’t want to make waves, we don’t want to make Jesus look the God of the rebellious. I am not advocating storming the capitol of Washington with both barrels blazing, but I am advocating storming the capitol of Washington and any other capitol that makes ridiculous decisions like this with the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Let us remember that Jesus was not a timid man. He didn’t back down from doing the right thing (i.e. the clearing of the temple, eating with tax collectors and sinners). Jesus was not concerned with what was popular, He was concerned with what was right.
Church, get up off the floor and quit worrying about being getting beat down and stand up for what is right, after all Jesus has our back! In case you are interested the phone number for the Washington Governor Christine Gregoire is 360-902-4111. You may get stuck leaving a message like I did because they are either too scared or too ashamed to actually answer for their decisions.
