ARE AMERICANS LOSING THEIR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM?

I realize, most of my almost 1200 friends on Facebook will not read my Christian blogs. You may wonder why I even continue having written 781 blogs over the past 7 1/2 years. Statistics show they are being read regularly in 102 nations around the world. I am surprised that there are readers in Russia and China and countries I have never heard of before. This is one blog I wish more American voters would read.

The last election, four million Christians failed to vote. Over these past four years we continue to lose our freedom to worship as we have in the past. The progressives want to not allow hate speech. Hate speech can be almost anything the left does not agree with. That could be what we believe and what is preached. They want to continue to divide the separation between church and state. This stops all prayers in public places, education institutes and in the workplace. If you were to do anything religious you could have a lawsuit against you.

If you disagree with those on the left, we are accused of being intolerant, bigots or racists. The IRS has harassed many conservative groups. Companies must provide insurance that allows abortion-causing drugs even if they object due to religious or moral grounds. Nurses in some state-funded hospitals can be threatened with termination if they refuse to participate in abortions. In some states, Catholic Charities and others can no longer participate in adoptions because they will only put children in homes with a father and a mother.

What if all Christians eligible to vote were to pray and fast before voting. Should they not vote for a person who is pro-life, pro-Israel and believe in people being able to live with religious freedom? Should we not be concerned who is placed on the Supreme Court? They are more capable of taking away religious freedom, individual liberty, freedom of speech and self-governance based on Scripture than almost anyone.

WE should understand what many Americans problems are: Romans 5:10 – “For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” (NLT) The average American neglects the Bible and spends little or no time in prayer.

If a person has not been saved by the grace of God, they are enemies of God. This is what Christians have to deal with. If we really understand Scripture, we should be the most positive people in the world. Christ did not die that we could go through life moaning and groaning. We must ignore the negative prophets of doom.

You would think that history would teach us not to repeat the same mistakes that we have been making. You may want the government to give you everything free. However, they never tell you how they will pay for it. Look at every large country that has changed to socialism and you will see financial failure. Not one time has it ever worked.

I John 5:4 and 5 – “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”

Who will you vote for?
