Our biggest Responsibility

Updated on December 31, 2013

Defending our Faith in the New Age of America

In today's world we are pulled between two things as Christians; these two things are our religion and being politically correct. My question is, are we compromising our religious integrity to be politically correct?

I feel like in America we, as Christians, are being put on the back burner. I hear so much bout how we have to accommodate people and their religions but as soon as we open our mouths about our beliefs we put our necks in the guillotine and are ostracized as being intolerant bigamists.

I realize, as a stong Christan man, that we need to love everybody regardless of our beliefs but does that mean we must accept or endorse things that aren't biblical? does it mean that we are push overs? Does it mean we don't need to or we shouldn't stand up for our faith? I think not.

This world, our communities, our families are our mission field. in Matthew 28:16-20 we are given the great commission, this doesn't always mean we have to go to a foreign land or a strange country. We have work to do here, work that is overlooked by many, work that is imperative to the survival of the Christian religion. we, as Christians, can't be people who watch the negative changes and sits back thinking, "I wish somebody would do something to stop this." we need to be the ones to go out and spread the truth!

So this new year what will you do to stand up for your faith? what will you do to give Christianity a good name? We must be steadfast in our faith and unwavering in our beliefs and then we can see a change in our communities and our country as a whole.

We Need to do a Better Job Standing Up for Ourselves and Our Rights

As a nation, we need to come back to what was fought for in 1776, and that was freedom.

Our forefathers fought for our right to express our beliefs without condemnation from others.

Our country was founded on Christian principles that should not be pushed aside just because another culture protests. Keeping America on its Christian foundations will let freedom reign.

All Through Governernment We, As Christians are being Pushed Aside.

The Family Research Council accurately stated, “In the U.S. Air Force, the one thing leaders are throttling back is faith.” The Air Force suspended a 20-year-old class on “Just War Theory” because it included scriptural references. The word “God” was stripped from the Rapid Capabilities motto and Bibles were purged from Air Force Inn checklists. The Air Force Academy ordered cadets to stop promoting a Christian charity for needy kids as a Christmas project.

The Air Force is consciously creating an organizational culture in which Bible-believing Christians are clearly being pushed aside. As a lifelong Christian, I'm not ashamed of the Gospel. However, I'm deeply ashamed of the callous fashion in which Air Force senior leaders are deferring (pandering?) to this administration's liberal agenda to the detriment of active-duty Christians. As this nation continues slouching toward Gomorrah (to borrow from Robert Bork's book), I pray that Air Force senior leaders opt out of the trip and genuinely speak as boldly for Christians as they do for all other constituencies huddling under the shredded umbrella of “diversity.”

What is Real Faith?

The biblical definition of real faith is found in the book of Hebrews. The Scriptures plainly state that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not [yet] seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Substance means assurance, realization, something like a title or deed to a house or piece of property. Evidence entails proof. The author of Hebrews states “By faith we understand that the worlds were formed by the word [command] of God, so that the things that are seen [the creation] were not made of things that are visible” (Hebrews 11:3). Many scientists today are coming to realize the universe could not have evolved by accident. The prerequisites for life are so many and so tightly defined that the universe had to be planned to sustain life from the very beginning. The proof of God is definitely there for those with eyes to see! Real faith rests on solid proof—not just feelings, conjecture or wishful thinking. The modern notion that faith doesn’t rest on proof actually undermines the real faith that Scripture talks about.

Faith is also described in the Bible as a fruit or quality imparted by God’s Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:9; Galatians 5:22). The Holy Spirit is given to those who repent (Acts 2:38) and who make the effort to obey the laws of God (Acts 5:32). We will grow in faith as we exercise faith—as we trust God—and actually follow His instructions. As our faithfulness to God increases we will become more staunch, firm, determined, resolute in our belief in God. Martin Luther’s definition, “…faith is a living unshakable confidence,” is a paraphrase of the Apostle Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 15:58.

Do you think we're being pushed too far?

Do we need o be more accountable for the minimization christian faith in our communities and local governments?

See results

Our mission field is right here!

We have a field to harvest right in front of us! We cannot sit back and watch the Christian faith be slowly covered up in our country, our community, and in our schools. We are the only thing keeping the faith alive!
