Faith is the Foundation For Freedom
As I sit this morning preparing to enter “Church”, I cannot help but to reflect back to when I first became a Christian. There was such an awe about the history of how the Church was founded and prospered through the ages. Yes there were times of tribulation and certainly blemishes on what came to be referred to as “The Church.” However, The Body of Christ grew through the persecution and struggles. The Huguenots landed on our shores spurned by the Reformation, Jamestown was founded in 1608, and Plymouth Rock shortly thereafter. Each of these groups of Christians came seeking to worship and honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One must only glance at the Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact or any of the Colonial Constitutions to become keenly aware of the role of Faith in our Founding Fathers.
Yet a mere hundred and fifty years or so and another generation would rise up and throw off the shackles of oppression and tyranny. The War for Independence was initiated in response God fearing Patriots who rose up and stood for the rights granted by God. The Declaration of Independence was the bedrock upon which the United States Constitution enumerated what has become known as the Establishment Clause, ”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.” There it is The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
We have come a long way since those words were penned. The question for the Church is, “Which way will we go from here? Many have bought into the myth of Separation of Church and State and many more have become complacent to leave the affairs of Government to the godless. Many pulpits are silent about our civic responsibility. We do not extol the virtue or necessity of public service. We tend to compartmentalize our life between the sacred and the secular life. I call it “spiritual bi polar disorder.” The fear of Pastors to speak on issues pertaining to civil government only exacerbates the Issue. The “501c3 may have been the bait for the downfall of the Church in America. Such phenomena has been witnessed in Europe by the many empty buildings that once housed The Church and now stand as a witness against political correctness.
Let us today take heed and rekindle the passion we once had to see Christ exalted as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Let us strive to exalt the Word of God in every aspect of life both public and private and may God raise up a generation of God fearing men to lead this Nation in righteousness. Faith is the Foundation For Freedom!
