The War on Christianity–Are Our Leaders Prepared?

chik-fil-a

The battle over the statement on marriage by Chik-Fil-A executive Dan Cathy has stirred up strong emotions throughout the country. Radical homosexual activists and humanists are attacking Chik-Fil-A hoping to destroy them because of their biblical stance on marriage, and around the country hundreds of thousands of Christians are rallying to support Chik-Fil-A.

However it is a huge mistake to think that this war is only about Chik-Fil-A. This is the opening battle of all out war on Christianity in this nation. Radical homosexuals and humanists will not stop if they successfully hurt Chik-Fil-A; they will not be content until homosexual marriage is a constitutionally protected right in this nation and until every child is indoctrinated with the lie that homosexuality is perfectly natural.

The battle over Chik-Fil-A is a springboard to all out attack on American churches. The Obama administration is already attacking religion through Obama care mandates, and now their attack is being embraced by the radical homosexual and humanist movements. They will not stop until homosexuality is a protected right—a springboard to attack the non-profit status of every church who has the courage to call homosexuality a sin against a holy God.

It is human nature to not want to get involved in battles that we think do not affect us. We want to mind our own business and not be at risk if we feel we have nothing to gain or lose. Do our Christian leaders really believe that the radical homosexual lobby does not have Christianity in their gun sights, ready to attack and destroy the institution of the church? If they actually believe the Chik-Fil-A battle does not concern Christianity in this nation, then they are either blind or incredibly naïve. Spiritual war is upon us in this nation and sticking our heads in the sand like an ostrich will not make it go away.

Mark my words—if Chik-Fil-A is hurt by the attack on them, the radical homosexual activists, sadly led by some who call themselves “Christians”, will turn its guns on the church. And the church is ill-prepared for the great battle that awaits us. If we do not realize war is upon us and begin to stand up for the truth of the Bible immediately, we are headed into deep trouble as an institutionalized church.

For all of you Christians who call yourself ‘peacemakers”—compromising with Islam, homosexuality and other affronts to God—how is that working for you so far? There is a huge difference between being a peacemaker and a traitor, ashamed of the gospel. Where are our Christian leaders boldly defending the biblical institution of marriage? Many are sitting this battle out, afraid to be seen as unloving or uncaring. Well folks it is time to choose a side in this great battle for truth. No more sitting on the fence, playing both sides of the issues. We are not politicians, we are disciples of Jesus Christ—light and salt to the world; a beacon of truth in a world of lies; we are supposed to be pointing the lost to the gospel of salvation! Instead many of our leaders are pointing the lost to the abyss because we are afraid of being seen as intolerant; or because we fear losing a few lukewarm Christians from our churches.

If you want to just keep sticking your head in the sand as a Christian, hoping this war will not affect you, that’s your choice. But if you are a Christian leader who is afraid of a battle over the truth of God’s Word—afraid to call out sin for what it is—then we respectfully ask that you remove yourself from leadership and make way for a leader who will.

We need strong, principled Christian leaders for the war that is upon us. We can no longer tolerate leaders who compromise out of fear. Now is not the time for compromise or ambiguity from our Christian leaders. Leadership—true biblical leadership—requires courage. Lead, follow or get out of the way—please!

    I pray Lord Jesus you would have us realize the problem isn't the leader because you alone are the head of the body of Christ and you alone are perfect. No our problem is we have turned from you, to another, setting a man over ourselves and accepting his teaching instead of yours. In your word you call this idolotry and carnal thinking. And because we have thought to put our trust in men and turned away from your whole counsel all these things have happened.

    You are showing us our vanity and I pray we realize it before we are destroyed in our own ignorance and our own evil conduct.

    Rather Lord Jesus, I pray we would take to heart your example and follow after the Fathers will in all things. Lord Jesus you emptied yourself for our sakes and became as nothing, requiring the Father and Spirits intervention to strengthen You to the end of life on the Cross. The place where you bore our sins in your flesh and hung them on a tree taking God's just punishment upon yourself for our sakes becoming our substitute to stand in our place. For this you gave us your covering of righteousness having cleansed us by your blood. In this way you crushed Satan though your heel was bruised in the process. In your resurrection from the dead you have proven to the world you didn't speak your own words but the Fathers words. He it was who said if you have not the Son you have not the Father and God is not in you.

    Lord Jesus forgive us for always looking to blame others for our own failure to follow you. Lord Jesus may you grant that we are able to follow your example of obedience a demonstration of your Love for the Father whom sent you and be willing to lay down our lives for one another.

    Lord you say in your word if we think ourselves to be something when we are nothing we fool ourselves and the truth isn't in us. Certainly even whole nations before you count only as a dusty coating upon the balance, how can we think we are anything. Oh how we have been deceived. Forgive us Father turn us again to the truth of your word and may you grant we hold fast to the true head, that is Christ.

    Great article.
    There should be no compromise. We must not forget the truth, or be afraid to say that Islam and Homosexuality are wrong. But we should remember that Jesus died for all of us, as we are all dead in our sin, and embrace our brothers and sisters in love and mercy.
    We must remember this is just the start of moral and Christian persecution. It will get worse and worse, till the point men will beg for death. Do we not know what is happening and the inevitable conclusion?
    We must stand up for what is true and biblical. The battle belongs to the Lord.

    Our Christian Nation has been invaded by demonic influences that appear as sheep and are wolves.
    These demonic possessed perverted ungodly wrathful desolate beings are becoming stronger for soon their leader the beast(lucifer) will be earthbound thrown from Heaven by our Father The Lord God Almighty.
    Now is the time to ask the Lord to fill you with His Holy Spirit and call upon His precious Son's name to be saved for all eternity. To live in peace,love and joy forever and ever.
    All true Christians must realize the danger that being lukewarm can cause to ones soul.
    Our Lord and Savior will vomit you out of His mouth.
    Read Revelation and be blessed. Ask the Lord God Almighty in Jesus's name to baptise you in His Holy Spirit and give you wisdom and knowledge of what is true and forever.
    The Father is very very clear about who will be sitting on His right side with His Son and the ones who will not.
    If you don't love the Lord God Almighty our precious Holy heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ and stand for the truth in ALL of His ways you have not either the Son nor the Father.
    You know them not and what's worse they never knew you!
    Peace be unto you
    Amen
