Listen what I am about to say, some today will find controversial. In fact it may bring emotions within these four walls like we have never seen. I need to speak to you today about America. America needs our help. Liberty is on the ropes, and if we as Christians do not start to unite and speak up she may end up down for the 10 count.
The economic events over the past week have shown to me personally what I have been somewhat in denial about over the past year, and believe the vast majority of you as well. We are not perfect, we want our nice, cozy, comfortable and secure lives in America to continue. We wish we could stay happy in our homes, worshiping the Lord as we see fit, and live freely. However I see very clearly soon we may not. The stock market is but one indicator of the state of the economy in our country, and it screamed loudly. We have 45 million American’s on food stamps, 1.8 million personal bankruptcies this year, and a housing market that let me dare say it, has collapsed. Our Government is printing money as though we are all playing monopoly, which has driven up the prices of what we all need to live on, food, gasoline, electricity, and basic necessities. At the same time none of our wages have gone up for years, in fact many within these walls have been unemployed all year with no income coming in.
Not only did the Stock Market Scream, but so did Washington DC. We have watched for a month the COMPLETE INCOMPETENCE of every one of our elected congressman, senators, and president. (my apologies is congressman XXXXX if he is here). This incompetence has led to a “debt deal” that was no deal at all for the American people. It was nothing more than kicking the problem down the road, creating a new “super congress”, and trashing the document that I hold second to my heart after the bible, called the US constitution. This debt deal does not cut ONE DIME from our spending problem, it only proposes “reduction in the proposed spending increases”, of which most of those will not take place until after 2013. It authorized the US treasury to rise the debt ceiling from $14.2 trillion to $16.7 trillion, an amount which will never be paid back in our children’s lifetimes. Our government has enslaved us.
Friday night the S&P rating agency downgraded the USA debt for the first time in 70 years. Let me just tell you all that is bad news. Monday morning could see one of the largest drops in the Stock Market, or at least add fire to continue watching it fall further.
To everyone in this church, let me be the first to admit I am sorry. Sorry that I have not spoken up on this before, sorry that I have left this to festure. Sorry to have placed my concerns with keeping my 501(c)(3) tax exemption ahead of the word of God.
How many stories within the bible are of men and woman rising up against an oppressive government or ruler, From Daniel to Paul it is one of the cornerstones of God’s greatest works, assistance of the common man against tyranny so that they can live freely, as God intended us to.
So starting today, I am going take this church into a new direction, I am going to start to speak the truth within these walls, and with your help we are going to shed our labels of Republican or Democrat, and start to refer to yourself as liberty loving constitutional Americans.
Now let’s pray……
The above message I give to every reader of Faith&Survival I ask that you send this to your Pastor, Preacher, Minister, Rabbi. Let this be a proposed message that he or she can give on THIS SUNDAY!!!!!…
May God Bless You
May God Bless America
