Time to stand up for our Christian nation | CHURCH CORNER

We live in the greatest country on earth and I feel so blessed to be a citizen of the United States of America. But more and more I’ve found myself wondering what is happening to our country? Has everyone gone mad?

Who will stand for truth? In the face of social opposition and mounting political pressures, who will stand? My grandpa used to famously say, “If you don’t stand for something you’ll stoop for anything.” I believe there is a time when every person must stand for who they are and what he or she believes.

We live in the greatest country on earth and I feel so blessed to be a citizen of the United States of America. But more and more I’ve found myself wondering what is happening to our country? Has everyone gone mad?

First let me start by saying I believe in Bigfoot more than I believe in the separation of church and state. It is a fallacy sold to the American people. It doesn’t exist anywhere in our laws or the Constitution of this country. Our country was founded with the Christian church as the very foundation of our legislature and judicial system, our schools and the institution of marriage. It is nothing short of a Jedi mind trick to convince the American people to abandon the tenets of their faith and ignore their convictions of their heart when pondering and voting on the social and political issues of the day. This one lie has robbed the Christian majority of their voice. As our country changes right before our eyes into something almost unrecognizable, we sit silently. I think the time has come to stand.


If we are the Land of the Free why do we place ourselves back under the bondage of endless rules and laws that restrict the freedoms brave men and women have died to protect? We don’t need legislation on everything.


Real marriage is between one man and one woman. There is no law that can be made to change this obvious truth.

Name of Jesus

My kids can’t wear a shirt to school that says, “Jn. 3:16.” Christmas was declared a national holiday in 1870. It is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is still a national holiday today, but in our schools our kids can’t celebrate it. Is that even legal? The real issue is the spirit of the antichrist that opposes everything godly and can’t stand for Jesus to be glorified.


The Bible says any nation that blesses Israel will be blessed and any nation that curses Israel will be cursed. It also states that the borders of Israel were established by God and shall not be changed. But recently our country has conspicuously distanced itself from Israel in that country’s growing time of need and support.


If anyone ever doubted it before, we now have the technology to reveal that life truly does begin at conception. The existence of an umbilical cord does not negate the individuality of a growing fetus and pardon the practice of killing them in – and partially delivered from – their mother’s womb.


If united we stand and divided we fall, isn’t it time we put the interests of the country ahead of the interests of our political party?

One nation under God

The strength of this great country is not our military. It isn’t our diversity and it does not come from some moral superiority. Our strength comes from God. We placed ourselves willingly under his sovereignty and asked for his protection and his grace to be upon us. He delivered and has remained faithful to us.

It is not just in time of trouble that our nation should once again sing our songs to God seeking his blessing and help. It wasn’t long ago that Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” was being sung at every ballgame and political event following the attacks of 9/11.

One hundred years before our national anthem was written another song written by Samuel Smith was our de facto national anthem. It is called “America,” and I bet you know it.

“My country, ‘tis of thee,

Sweet land of liberty,

Of thee I sing;

Land where my fathers died,

Land of the pilgrims’ pride,

From ev’ry mountainside

Let freedom ring!

Our fathers’ God to Thee,

Author of liberty,

To Thee we sing.

Long may our land be bright,

With freedom’s holy light,

Protect us by Thy might,

Great God our King.”

Some say we are no longer a Christian nation. I say Jesus has always been and will always be our king. The time to stand is now.
