On the left side of the political spectrum, Democrats boast they are “pro-choice”. The pro-choice claim suggests freedom, as in freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of religious expression. Such is not the case.
Atheism has taken root in the Democrat Party. Atheists strive to silence all religious expression, a natural right (formerly) protected by the First Amendment.
That First Amendment stipulates there will be no “no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech”.
The Gallup Poll tracks many things, including religious trends. In December of 2015, Gallup reported a decline in the number of U.S. residents who call themselves Christianfrom 80.1% in 2008 to 75.2% in 2015. The decline was in the under-forty population. That’s bad news.
Why the decline? Scholarship. Plain and simple. Contemporary young Christians know little to nothing about the Bible. Even fewer Americans know our history.
A Biblical worldview defines abortion as murder and homosexuality as an abomination, but religious groups, pseudo-Christians, ignore the Bible and teach a false history.
President Ronald Reagan wisely said, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
In Canada, the LGBT activists have taken full control of public education, to the point of actually indoctrinating young children toward the LGBT lifestyles. View the CBN News news story below.
In nearby Arkansas, atheists successfully forced a public school system to remove all references to God.
The challenge for Bible-believing, born-again Christians is two-fold. In the short term, we must be diligent to vote for candidates who agree with the Right to Life and parental authority. In the long-term, Christians must boldly tell their stories, their personal testimonies on what God has done and is doing in their lives.
I encourage believers to pray for God to supernaturally intervene in the political affairs of this state and our nation.
