Call To Righteousness
The soul of America is decrepit. Morality has become “old hat.” The Spirit of God has been pushed aside. A slow degradation of righteousness has desensitized us. Where do we, as Christians draw the line in allowing our policy setters to “call good evil and evil good”? Isaiah 5:20.
“First we overlook evil. Then we permit evil. Then we legalize evil. Then we promote evil. Then we celebrate evil. Then we persecute those who still call it evil.” (Author Unknown).
Where does your church stand in this progression?
At the 2020 DNC Convention, the Platform was laid out including these policies:
“Healing the soul of America.
*Women’s Rights. ‘…providing for safe and legal abortions.’
*Protecting LGBTQ+ Rights. ‘…adopt and foster children.’ ‘…access to facilities based on their gender identification.’ ‘…ban harmful conversion therapy practices.’”
Abortions – safe, legal? How about moral?
LGBTQ+ ? What is the “+”? It seems we are fitting into Romans 1:30, “…they invent ways of doing evil.” The “+” must be saving space for what has not yet been invented.
“…based of their gender identification.” Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man(kind) in His own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female He created them.”
We should be seeing the sin, loving the sinner, then asking for God’s healing, redemption and forgiveness in each of our lives. Yet, some in our churches have come to accept and celebrate these immoral policies and life-styles. God calls on us to draw the line and stand firm. Romans 14:16 says, “Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.” God calls us to His righteousness, to stand where He stands and allow Him to accomplish the healing, the redemption, the salvation from sin so we (His church, our nation) can be put back together in wholeness.
Isaiah 45:8-9, “You heavens above, rain down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness grow with it; I, the Lord, have created it. Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker.”
Hosea 10:12, “Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until He comes and showers righteousness on you.”
Does evaluation before God expose any hard, barren ground in your life or your church? Be bold in the Lord to break it up and plow it under. Begin planting the seeds of morality and God’s righteousness. Let us pray together and ask for God’s healing. Our lives, our churches, our nation certainly need it.
2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
