The “equality” act of 2021 expands government. Big Brother now controls the thought and conscience of Americans. Inhumane treatment of any human is deplorable. Controlling the thoughts of American’s is Unconstitutional. Leftists feel emboldened, Christians speak of “obeying the higher power” from Rom 13. Believers in God cringe that freedom of speech and freedom of thought is a fading thought and will quickly turn to a living hell.
Normalization is a technique to make something that seems different or odd appear more mainstream. A long history of utilization of humor routines, interviews and emotionally stirring articles can be seen throughout the history of our beloved Republic. Leo Hohmann cries out for an Awakening of the Church.
Cowardice, Indifference or lack of biblical knowledge has lead far too many Pastors to remain in their corner feeling safe and empowered as they incorrectly interpret Romans 13 to call Churches and Christians to merely “obey the government”. Tyranny must be stood against and must be swiftly and deftly abolished. Christianity has never been popular. Martyrs for Christ are not fantasy. Burned at the stake, boiled in oil, decapitated and tortured are just a few ways Christianity governments have tried to stop Christianity. History is repeating itself again. Heroes are out there. They are willing to die for their faith. They are living their faith.
My mind wanders to the Christians in “closed” countries. China and North Korea to name a few. The government mandates how and when churches can worship. The U.S.S.R successfully opened many state run churches. Sermons from God had to be approved by the government. Many a “Pastor” yielded to the “higher power” while forgetting the highest power. Oh Lord, may you give me courage to yield to the “highest power” may I render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s.
Religious oppression and control is within scope of HR 5. The time is today the battle is here. Choose you this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my house (and Church) we will serve the Lord.
