God's Rules Rule!

as our Authority!
Conservative Christians are often portrayed as ding-bats by the media
In the major media, conservative Christianity is openly being billed as close-minded, intolerant and harmful to both society and human dignity. In the future it will be impossible for true Believers to work for the government in any level, state or federal, while holding to their conservative evangelical Christian beliefs.
Consider the latest:
> Children are being told they can't write the words "Merry Christmas" to soldiers on Christmas cards.
> Seniors were told not to pray over their meals at a government-run Senior Center. (They have since backed down saying seniors should "Pray privately.")
> The VA has banned mentioning "Jesus" when counseling or at funerals.
> A federal judge held that prayers before a state House of Representatives could be to Allah, but not to Jesus.
> Obamacare forces organizations to participate in birth control and abortions, against their convictions.
> And God forbid if something has a cross on it. Displaying a cross is fast becoming a government-defined sin.
> Brendan Eich, CEO of Internet giant Mozilla Corporation, with over 300 million in annual sales, was forced to resign because he supported God's definition of marriage. It was discovered that six years earlier he had donated $1000 to support California's Proposition 8, which passed by 52% to 48%, making same sex marriage illegal.
Basically our spiritual adversary wants Christians and/or the Bible to have zero influence so he's having his minions actively removing any vestiges of pure Christianity from government and business.
Obviously these Satanically driven people have no clue about the importance of allowing God to be God. That God's rules rule. That God's rules matter. They fail to understand that He gave us the Word of God for our own protection!
Scene from "Network" 1976, where
the anchorman screams I'm not
going to take it anymore
But, before I began shouting "I'm not going to take it anymore" from my window, I'm reminded of something Frank Peretti once said at a Steeling Bible Conference.
While poking fun at people who over-react to things out of their control, Frank said, "Some people get so upset with the ________ (fill in the blank--politicians, communists, atheists, etc.) that I felt like saying, 'I've got $5 and a car, what can I do?'"
The point Frank made was that we need to always respond with Biblical balance and perspective. And these days, if we're not careful, we could end up in jail! Sad but true.
So, learning from Frank's wise words, we should be wise in our responses. And who is our best counselor? The answer is God's Holy Spirit illuminating scripture.
When choosing a response to all of the muck going on, God wants us to use the Bible to guide our footsteps.
- That Jesus is both God and the Messiah v.1, 9
- The Bible is without error v.2
The Jews are chosen by God v.3
That Jesus was resurrected as Lord v.4, 5
- That salvation is by faith alone v. 5, 8,16,17
- That we should pray for God's Will v.10
- That we choose to be wise or foolish v.14
- That God's wrath is coming for sin v.18
- The earth was created, not random v.20, 25
- That mankind is accountable to God v.20
- That sin clouds our reasoning v.21, 22
- There ARE absolutes v.25
- God calls homosexuality sin v.26, 27
Sin leads to death v.28, 32
Is that not one great chapter that deals with many of our problems today? God's Word is more powerful than a two-edged sword so
You can get an RR1 bumper sticker for $1
we're praying the Lord will use our RR1 campaign to convict America to repent of its sinful direction.
Hey, as we move close to the exhilarating climax of this age, this is something simple Believers can still do and not get arrested--point to a chapter in the Bible!
And if I'm wrong and Rapture does happen soon, it will be nice to have left a not-so-subtle hint as to what happened to everyone!
>Second, add RR1 to your prayer list. Ask the Lord, if it be His Will, to use this to His glory.
>Fourth, Talk about it! Tell your family, friends, pastor, Sunday School, Bible study, etc., that you believe the answer to a lot of our problems today can be found in Romans 1!
>Fifth, wear a pin, sticker and/or put a bumper sticker on your car. Click here for details.
