As our society gets more and more secular (anti-God), we as Christians must develop and maintain our Christian worldview. That means those whom we support politically or in our everyday lives must be weighed against the word of God.
How unfortunate, in this their culture, that we will be forced to vote for people who are the most closely aligned with our Bible — the word of God. The First Amendment of the Constitution is the foundation for all the amendments to our Constitution. The two most important principles are freedom of religion and freedom of speech. Without these two, the Constitution will fall apart. The government is telling us what we should believe and what we are allowed to say. If we don’t put our Christianity first in every area of our lives, we will lose our rights.
If you really believe in the Bible and in the Lord Jesus, you could never support or approve of a socialist. Socialism is contrary to biblical principles. I have said it many times — the public school systems are indoctrinating our children. What they should be doing is educating and teaching them about the greatness of America and the Constitution and what the republic means.
We can see today many, not all, young people want things for free. Nothing is free: somebody will always have to pay. Let’s begin to put the word of God first. Let’s weigh everything against the word of God. If it is not in line with the word of God, we must reject it or them, and allow God to truly lead us. I’m concerned for the church and people who claim to believe the word of God and claim to obey Him, but yet follow the ways of the world and support people who are against our faith. We will know them by their fruit — their actions, not their words.
William Booth wrote in the late 1800s: “The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell.” It’s happening today; we are witnessing this right now. Let’s allow God to lead our lives. Let’s put Him first in every area of our lives!
