Sharing God's love with the world, one heart at a time.

Lord, Forgive Us

2 Comments

Yesterday was Election Day.  So many thoughts are going through my mind today.

How could there be so many with their eyes closed to what is happening right before them?  This country, and the world, would be a different place if we really lived our Faith.

How can a Christian support the killing of innocent babies in the womb?

How can a Christian support homosexual “marriage”?

How can a Christian support the government’s right to forcibly take away money, through taxes,  from its citizens and hand it out to others?  Shouldn’t we be loving and charitable with our money and possessions, in the ways we are personally called?  Have you seen some of the disgusting ways our money is being used? (take a look at what they are doing and teaching in our schools)

How can a Christian trust, support and give the right to the government regarding our healthcare?  Why would we give up our God given freedom and hand it over to the government?

How can a Christian support the government’s right  to be in charge of dispensing our hard earned money?  Why would we trust the government to use our money in any way they deem fit?  Wouldn’t a Christian want to support causes that the Lord leads them to…and choose the way he is led in charity?

Why do we support a government that is chipping away at religious freedom?  Why would anyone accept that “Heather has Two Mommies” is ok, however, “The Bible” is not?  Why is it ok for the government to force companies or Churches to comply with the government’s truth concerning areas of religious faith?

Why do we blame guns for the wickedness that is running rampant in the hearts of men, however, we are unable to teach the Saving Power of God, or even mention His name in our schools…when HE is the only answer to the blackness that is overtaking souls?

Please, let’s take a step back and look at what is happening all around us.  The questions I just asked are just a small portion of what has been sneaking into our country while we are sleeping.

Or are we just pretending to be asleep so we don’t have to take a stand?

What I see is a government that is phasing God out, and stepping in to take God’s place.

Is that what you want?  Is that what we desire for future generations?  Something to think about, isn’t it?

 

Lord, please forgive us for our laziness, complacency, and sinful pride. 

We ask that you send your Holy Spirit to search our hearts for the sins in our lives that need to be acknowledged, and ask for the humility needed to allow us to beg your forgiveness.

We throw ourselves at your feet, and rest in your healing mercy and grace.

Jesus, have mercy on us.  Jesus, save us.  Jesus, lead us to fulfill your purpose.

Amen.

 

Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,  Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations   Jeremiah 1:4-5

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.   I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.  My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  Psalms 139:13-15

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.   Romans 1:26-27

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  Genesis 2:24

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.  Luke 6:38

But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.   Acts 5:29

  1. I disagree with your take on these matters, but appreciate your fervent commitment to your principles. I believe that government policy exists apart from rigid religious doctrine. As Christ said, be in the world not of the world. Render unto Caesar…

    • Thanks for stopping by and for your thoughtful comment. I will never render to Caesar my religious freedom, which up to this point, has been a protected right. And when you really think of it, what exactly belongs to Caesar????
