Similarly today, the Living Word is under attack. Although it’s not a news flash, the irreligious fight to seize Christianity, lock it up, and nail it to the cross of public shame. They strive to implant on the culture that being a Christian is silly and unpopular.
Now the question is do you believe that? Will you run as the disciples did? Is there any fight in you to defend what you say you believe?
I wrote the Prodigal Republican as a form of my own stand for my values. I’ve been asked, why do you continue to scream into a culture that’s not listening? No one cares about values anymore. Moral Relativism is the order of the day, they say. It has also been said, Revelation tells what the end will be-so why fight? Well, I’m afraid to be found fleeing from my convictions. I’m afraid to allow encroachment of immorality on my watch. I’m afraid to not stand for the One who died for the remission of my sins. I’m afraid to sit this one out.
So in my fear to be counted a coward, I fight!
How do we fight, you ask? As spoken to Solomon, the Lord says, “If my people who are called by my name would humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
We must return to being a nation of repentance and prayer. Where Judeo-Christian values are undermined and under attack we must stand against it wherever we find it: in the public square, in the courthouse, in the city council chambers, in the state capital, and even in our own homes. We must first pray, seek His face, then stand and fight. Don’t flee.
