How God Is Humbling ‘Christian’ America

by | Mar 1, 2021 | Church & Ministry

You may be asking yourself, “What is going on?” Perhaps you thought when you went to the polls and cast your vote for a president who upheld many Christian values and stood against the slaughter of innocent babies everything would be OK. Perhaps you thought life would go on as normal.

But things didn’t go quite as expected, and now you’re wondering, What is going on, God?

At least that was part of my line of questioning for God. And I heard the same thing in the Spirit I have been hearing for months: It is time for the complacent church to wake up! For too long, American Christians have had it easy. We could afford to grow complacent as long as the government was attempting to uphold our Christian values. We could cast our vote for the “good guy” and go on with our lives feeling as if we had done our part.

We have tried to depend on those in the White House to hold back sin in America while we hang out in our comfort zones lifting the occasional prayer for our nation. We have grown very comfortable. Outside of the random social media taunts and mockery, not many of us have faced a lot of persecution here in “Christian America.”

Oh, yes, we have prayed for the persecuted who have suffered and even died for sharing the gospel in other countries, but we have remained in our cozy recliners and allowed sin to take over in America because it’s someone else’s job.

It seems that many ministers have become more obsessed with how many people they can get into their church pews than how many souls they can get into heaven. Many have stopped speaking truth for fear of offending people and causing them to leave the church. But what good is it to have a church full of lost people on their way to hell? And yet, we wonder why our churches are powerless and poorly attended?
