Perilous Days Are Here

For most of our country’s history our foundation has been one of biblical values.  Most of our Founding Fathers held to a high view of the Scriptures and believed their America to be a Christian nation.  At the same time they ensured peoples of all faiths could come here and freely practice their faith without governmental interference or censorship.   

This past week two items in the news made it clear that is no longer the truth.  One reported that tax money contributed by all Americans help to end the lives of over 300,000 Americans via Planned Parenthood in 2011.

The second was the effective removal of an evangelical preacher from praying the inaugural benediction because of his traditional Christian beliefs in sexuality.  Both free speech and freedom of religion were railroaded by our current administration.

Next Sunday, which is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and the day before the inauguration, I plan to talk very plainly to the church I pastor about how our American ideals, that at one time said we were “under God” are being rapidly stripped away and what we as believers must do about it. 

I fear we are crossing...maybe have already crossed a line in this country that will make historic Christianity no longer welcome in the land of the pilgrim's pride.
