Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.Matthew 28:19; New King James
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Amendment 1, US Constitution.
Perhaps the two greatest sentences written by God and man.One commanding us to spread God’s word to the world, the other commanding one nation (ours) not to silence or control the actions of any religion (or anyone for that matter).We cannot proclaim the good news of Jesus if the government outlaws it…unless we violate the laws of Man in order to honor the command of God
nd municipalities are cowering in fear from the well funded legal staff of these organizations.
But Americans are fighting back.With assistance from the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), and the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), these municipalities are fighting back - and winning!The standards our founding fathers had when they prayed over and drafted this constitution (53 of the 55 founders were practicing Christians) are finally being defended.
The right to choose which God you will serve (or no God at all) can be traced back to Joshua 24:16.But no individual, politician, bureaucrat or government has the right to control what God you or I will worship or how we will worship, or that you cannot publicly worship any God at all.We need to encorage other Christians in their walk with God, encourage those who are not followers of Jesus to join us, and accept the decisions some will make who simply choose not to follow our God.
Pray for these Christian organizations above in their fight for our religious freedom in America.Consider giving to these organizations. Pray that our judges do not use their bench to outlaw this basic right.Finally, pray that you will have the emotional and spiritual strength to proclaim these basic rights in public, and encourage those who are already proclaiming these rights, doing all you can to support them.Let’s show these atheists our God is real!
