Read these words written by Pastor Chuck Baldwin from Crossroads Baptist Church in Pensacola, FL.
My bet is that you will either be screaming Hallelujah, or pulling your hair out.
Which is it for you?
In the early 60s, the battlefield was prayer and Bible reading in school. Pastors and church abandoned the battlefield, and the enemy took the field. In the early 70s, abortion-on-demand was the battlefield. Pastors and churches abandoned the battlefield, and the enemy took the field. In the early 2000s, the creation of a police state was the battlefield (which is still raging), and the vast majority of pastors and churches are nowhere to be found. Now, the enemies of liberty are threatening to make outlaws out of millions of God-fearing, law-abiding citizens who believe in the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. This is the point today where “the devil and the world are at the moment attacking.” And once again, most pastors and churches are abandoning the battlefield.
Pastor, please help us!
If every pastor who, in his heart, believes in the right to keep and bear arms would publically from the pulpit denounce Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein’s attempted gun ban plan, it is almost certain that the politicians at both the State and federal levels would hear the message loud and clear. With apologies to Edmund Burke, the only way evil can triumph is when Christian people – especially pastors – do nothing.
Instead of being courageous prophets, as God’s men are commissioned to be, so many of them – especially the nationally renowned ones – are busy providing cover for the would-be tyrants in Washington, D.C. Case in point: during a pre-inauguration service for President Obama, nationally-renowned pastor Andy Stanley (son of the famous Charles Stanley) delivered a 12-minute address. During his “sermon,” he called Obama “America’s Pastor-in-Chief.”
Barack Obama is a man who believes in killing innocent unborn babies (How many babies have been murdered in the wombs of their mothers since Obama was first elected back in 2008?); he is a man who, on his own personal orders, has killed nearly 200 children in drone missile attacks (at least two of the children who were killed were Americans). No consent of Congress was ever given. On his word alone, Barack Obama has used drone missiles to kill many times more children than Adam Lanza killed at Sandy Hook.
