This seems the perfect place to add the disclaimer that there’s nothing inherently good or bad about the Democrat Party or the Republican Party. Both are just holding vessels housing like-minded constituents. Yet, Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christians almost certainly will not be or feel at home in a Party advocating abortion, euthanasia, same-sex intercourse and marriage, coercive redistribution of wealth, and similar ‘progressive’ stereotypical statutes imposed and codified into law by humanistic secularists.
Reestablishing prayer in America’s churches is of critical importance, along with recognizing that human agency will play a substantive role if we are to pull out of the ongoing tailspin. It’s not enough for the Lord to call Gideons and Rahabs to the public square; they must answer the call. “Abraham’s feet did the walking, the grace of God does not replace human effort.”3
Speaker Gingrich asked three questions during his presentation at our nation’s premier joint professional military education institution: “What does the country have to do to survive? How would you explain it so the American people would give you permission to do it? If they gave you permission, how would you implement it?”
America’s capital cities and cultural levers of influence are nearly all in the hands of idolatrous progressives. Public schools have been turned into secularism’s houses of worship, meeting five days a week, eight hours a day, where secular profane tenets are foisted upon our children and where educators instill feral values in America’s youth in pursuance and obedience to their unhallowed gods.
Too many church leaders today have problems dealing with rather simple matters such as the difference between male and female, the meaning of marriage, and whether defenseless babies deserve the right to live.4 It should thus not come as a surprise that Jehovah God is silent in America’s public square. The Lord will give no direct or special revelation of Himself to those who are on the path of rebellion and disobedience.
Consequently, if America is to spiritually resurrect, each and every church in America should have a pastor, elder, deacon, or congregant running for local office in 2022, 2024, 2026, and thereafter.
Thanskfully, Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.
