“The wicked strut about, and evil is praised throughout the land” (Ps. 12:8, NLT).
Almost a year ago, I wrote an article with a similar title when the so-called Reproductive Health Act passed in New York with thunderous applause in the state Senate chamber. I could not believe what I was reading: People actually applauded the slaughtering of children. Was I having a dream … a nightmare? Was this real?
Today, the final results of the Georgia election and the presidency are still up in the air. Regardless of your political views, we should all be heartbroken at the state of our nation today. For example, by supporting certain candidates, many are cheering that healthy nine-month-old babies can be removed limb-by-limb.
You may say, “But I’m not cheering abortion.” If you support those who support it, yes, you are.
You’re also cheering that children can be influenced by transgenderism and be encouraged to change their sex (which is not possible, by the way). Cheering that Congress will attempt to remove all male pronouns. The list of insanity you’re supporting is endless.
Granted, these issues have been in America for years, but there is a huge difference between a politician who encourages perversion and murder and one who fights against it.
And, I’m getting very frustrated at those who say, “But the Republicans haven’t done much to stop abortion either.” Adversaries in the House and Senate have fought for abortion rights. The enemy of our soul has done a great job preventing the shutting down of abortion mills and silencing churches via silent pastors. The view that Republicans haven’t done much is just an excuse, a straw-man argument.
I’m not writing this from a political party standpoint, but from a God-fearing standpoint. When human life is devalued, atrocities such as the Holocaust, slavery, sex-trafficking and abortion occur. God help us when we ignore our calling to confront evil. How did we get here and what can we do?
The Church Must Be Revived
As I said in my recent sermon and article, both titled, “The Great Reset of the Church,” In the same way that Jesus warned the lukewarm church in Laodicea, He warns us today: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot … So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth” (Rev. 3:15-16).
The church in America resembles the Laodicean church more than at any other time in history. Sadly, conviction is replaced with complacency, and God’s glory is often replaced with gimmicks and marketing ploys.
Just look at the top sermons viewed on social media today. The preachers are motivational speakers, not voices “crying in the wilderness.” It’s about being bigger and better instead of holier and humble.
