Today I couldn't help but take notice of a Facebook status that read, "Here's a thought: If you so despise our President and our government, you run for office. You fix every problem facing mankind. If not, please hush." This statement was followed by many supporters, saying that we do indeed need to hush and not go against the grain. Live and let live, if you will. YIKES!!! That, my friends, is a scary mind-set to have!
We all have a God-given right to have a voice! It's time we start using it! Let us not be bullied into silence! It's not racism, or anti-Americanism, or even necessarily anti-Obama, to speak up and use the voice God gave us. It's pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Scripture, pro-family, and anti-Socialism. It's time to be "knees to the earth" LOUD!!! I'm not talking about being rude, obnoxious, or disrespectful. That won't help anything, and it's not what God intended either. We need to get on our faces before the Lord and humble ourselves, then stand up for what His Word says is truth!!! We, as believers, need to be a loud voice in Washington!
Let's always remember:
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing" ~ Edmund Burke
The First Amendment ~ "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Journal of the Continental Congress, 1774 ~ "It is our indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves, and prosterity, by all lawful ways and means in our power to maintain, defend, and preserve these civil and religious rights and liberties for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to the future generations."
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 I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
A big "Thank you!!!", to the people of Massachusetts for going against party lines and using their voices to go against the grain! May the rest of the nation be so bold!!
