The Silent Christian

I got mine. I'm good.


Ever here a "Christian" say this? "I got mine. I'm good. Besides, I'm no Evangelist, or Pastor. I know nothing. I can't possibly come across to someone else about God. Who am I anyway. No. I got mine. I'm good."

Ever wonder why we have a Moral decline in this Country? Why we now call Sin Good and Good Sin? Why our Schools are War Zones. Where talking and chewing gum in Class has been completely replace with Rape and Murder. Why our young Girls are Walking around with everything on display and we hear of Sex Parties at 6 Grade Dances? Ever wonder why our kids can see Nudity any and everywhere? Why our TV, Movies, and Video games are filled with it and Violence? Here is one for ya.. Ever wonder why some of our CHURCHES are the way they are? Not only accepting Sin, but openly condoning and GLORIFYING Sin?

Not a Biblical but a historical reference...

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Here is another..

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."

Who made these statements? Edmund Burke. He was an Irish Statesman, Author, Orator, Theorist, and Philosopher. Oh he was also part of the Whig Party in the House of Commons in England. He is also the one who said this...

""Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." Yup. Not Winston Churchill. although he may have said it, it was Edmund Burke who coined the phrase..

How profound are these? Think about it. It is totally true..

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Picture living on the top of a Mountain. Far away from the rest of the World. You and some friends raise your kids in love and show them how to farm and simple games like Hide and Seek, Tag and maybe even Red Light Green Light. Although, they would have no idea what that is.. They grow, and they have Children, and so on. A few generations later, one comes down from the Mountains. They see the world for the first time. They know NOTHING about violence and evil. They know nothing about the deeds people will do to each other. They will stand by and watch in utter amazement, but have no idea what to do if anything..

Now, take a Police Officer. Here is a Person that goes to School to LEARN all about the Evils People do. They see the horrors. They are taught how to deal with them.. Now, for them to stand by and simply watch a Crime happen, that would be Criminal.. Would they not be as guilty as those committing the Crime? For allowing it to happen?

Any God will do? Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life..No one comes to God unless they go through Him. There is no other way.. See, the Church USE to stand up against Sin and Evil in the World. Abortion? That is the Murder of the most innocent of all life. Homosexuality? It is Sin against God and Nature.

WE are an Open Nation. We have a Constitution that grants you the Right to Worship ANY Religion you see fit. Well, as long as it is not Christianity. That one we need to regulate and restrict. But if you are anything else, especially Muslim, well, then we will make all kinds of accommodations for you. Just keep that Jesus stuff to yourself..

Abortion is now Ruled to be a "Right" granted to Women, and called a Medical Procedure and you no longer have a Right to speak against it. It became the Law of the Land in 1973. If you say anything about it, you HATE Women and you are a close minded Bigot. As a matter of fact, we need to Protect Women, so we will attack you, Sue you, and or, run you out of town if you say Abortion is murder. SO you better not dare..

Homosexuality is now considered GREAT. It is now a Protected Class. Gays have the Right to Marry, and the same rights as other Spouses. It is a glorious thing that should be celebrated if your little boy decides that he is a she, and she wants to use the girls Bathroom.. Gays are God's Children too. You better accept them and if you don't, than you are Homophobic and it should actually be against the Law, we are working on that, for you to say anything negative about Gay people. After all, they are the new Black. They are the New Civil Rights Movement. Even some of our Churches are now opening accepting and TEACHING Homosexuality is OK..

Why is this happening? Simple. When you remove God, something else ALWAYS takes His place. We removed God from our Schools. Look at them now. We removed God from Society, {THERE IS NO WALL OF SEPARATION IN THE CONSTITUTION} Look at it now? The Problem with an anything goes society, is, well, anything goes..

However, WE are not to be like this. WE are Children of God. Ambassadors to the Earth for Heaven.
"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God." {2 Corinthians 5:20}
The Church is NOT suppose to throw open their doors and welcome in those that seek to Change the Word and to call Sin Good. We are not to "Evolve with the times?" God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, His Word, is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. Jesus even said,,
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." {Matthew 24:35}
What was Sin, IS still Sin, and will always BE Sin. God doesn't change His mind because we decide to accept Sin. He doesn't go, "OK, OK,. You all want Homosexuality to be good, OK, OK, it is good. No worries. It is 2016 after all.." Or, "OK, OK. Yeah I get it. You do not want to accept Jesus. Fine, no big deal. Believe whatever you want and I'll see you then.." No. He is a constant. His Word, a constant. His way, a constant. We are to be, as His Children, a constant.

WE are to be a light in the Darkness of the World. WE are to be a sign that there is another and a far better way. WE are to be in the World and not OF the World. Jesus told us we are the Salt of the earth, and a light..
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
{Matthew 5:13-16}
If we sit silently by or seem to accept Sin in the World, how can people tell the difference in us and anyone else?
"Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world."
{Philippians 2:12-15}
We cannot just simply sit by any longer. I'm not saying we need to attack the World. This will never work. As a matter of fact, think about this. God did not tell Noah to change the World. He told him, build a Boat. God did not tell Moses to change the World, He told him to bring His people out. Jesus did not tell His Disciples to change the World, He said whosoever accepted them were blessed, and whosoever did not was cursed. He simple said, go forth and Preach the Word.. We will talk about that next time. How just one person can effectively change the World.. But His concern for us, as His Children, is that WE are the Salt, Light, and the symbol of a better way in the Earth. We are Sowers of the Seed, Tellers of Truth, and Ambassadors of Heaven. We must NEVER remain Silent.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
