American Shame 2012 Part 3

“As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.” (Romans 14:1 ESV)

Are we praying, or whining and complaining? If the church would get up, stand up, and obey the Word of the Lord rather than arguing with the world and spouting political opinions as if they matter, then, for example, millions of our young girls wouldn’t be so likely to consider having abortions. Trees cannot be cut down from the top and neither can unrighteousness. Unless you affect the root, you may as well save your energy and your outrage for more productive activity such as prayer and preaching the Word of God in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2). Jesus, in the seventeenth chapter of the Gospel of John, prayed that we, His disciples, be one as He was one with the Father and vice versa. Is sharing my political opinion and my judgmental outrage about government’s ungodliness lifting up Jesus and drawing all men unto Him, magnifying the Lord, or exhibiting faith in God’s sovereign omnipotence and trusting wholly in His ability to perfectly care for me? I pray for higher heights and deeper depths of faith to become evident in my walk and in my talk...
