America is the greatest nation on earth.
In America, you have the right to believe anything you want. You have the freedom to worship, the freedom to speak out (First Amendment). Men and women have given their lives to give us that right.
We are told to tolerate different opinions and beliefs and we should. The problem though is that no one wants to tolerate God’s beliefs, God’s word or anything to do with God. It really comes down to two opposing world views – a biblical world view based on God’s Word or a secular world view based on human feelings and opinions.
The Bible is God’s Word. The Bible is sufficient to guide us and to govern us. The Bible helps us make the right decisions in every aspect of our lives.
God is not a Republican or a Democrat. If you read Joshua, chapter 5, you will quickly discover God does not come to take sides but to take over! If you believe the Bible to be inspired, inerrant, and infallible, then how you see the world, how you see life, how you see politics…how you see everything should be based on that alone. What does God say about these issues? What is God’s opinion on the matter? What God says really matters. Your life should be governed on the principles of the Word of God and so should your politics.
We are to be salt and light, we are to influence the conscience of our culture, not by acting self-righteous or having a “better than anyone” attitude. We can see things differently but not on the clear cut biblical mandates we see laid out in the Word of God.
