This Kingdom Staple Must Be Reestablished Publicly for Christianity to Survive by DAVID LANE for Charisma News
We had hoped that the Nov. 3 elections would provide insight into what the living God is saying to a nation anchorless and morally adrift. As of this writing, we are still waiting to see which candidate will be sworn in as president of the United States on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021.
Holy silence itself is a speech, provided there be an ear to hear it.
An “ear to hear” is a troublesome issue in America.
Having removed prayer to Jehovah from public education in 1962 (Engel v. Vitale), the Bible from public schools in 1963 (Abington School District v. Schempp) and the Ten Commandments from public school walls, court houses and government buildings in 1980 (Stone v. Graham), is the want of a word from God any surprise in today’s America?
Add iniquitous rulings from U.S. Supreme Court justices to the current loss of moral and spiritual perception—such as the killing of precious unborn babies (Roe v. Wade 1973), the license and consent to homosexual vice, sin and marriage in 2015 (Obergefell v. Hodges) and the expansion of homosexual and transgender rights in 2020 (Bostock v. Clayton County)—and you have a flourishing formula for national hardship of a calamitous or disastrous nature. After all, culture is the public manifestation of religion.
We note the red flag raised by Rush Limbaugh last week, “I actually think that we’re trending toward secession. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs.”
Over the last few years, we have raised a quite similar spiritual flag to accentuate that “Two distinct religions are vying for supremacy in the public square: transient and mutable secularism versus eternal and immutable Christianity. These two can’t coexist, one will ultimately collapse as a consequence of the elevation of the other.”
