Social Justice...

Churches in American have been overthrown from within and transformed into bastions of "social justice" with a relentless socialist undertow. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been morphed into "Jesus the Community Organizer". Sixty-one years ago, John F. Kennedy warned us of this tactic.  ~~Will G.

"But in 'the stern encounter', in the moral struggle, religion is not simply a weapon - it is the essence of the struggle itself. The Communist rulers do not fear the phraseology of religion, or the ceremonies and churches and denomination organizations. On the contrary, they leave no stone unturned in seeking to turn these aspects of religion to their own advantage and to use the trappings of religion in order to cement the obedience of their people. 

What they fear is the profound consequences of a religion that is lived and not merely acknowledged. They fear especially man's response to spiritual and ethical stimuli, not merely material. A society which seeks to make the worship of the State the ultimate objective of life cannot permit a higher loyalty, a faith in God, a belief in a religion that elevates the individual, acknowledges his true value and teaches him devotion and responsibility to something beyond the here and now.

The communist fear Christianity more as a way of life than as a weapon. In short, there is room in totalitarian system for churches - but there is no room for God. The claim of the State must be total, and no other loyalty, and no other philosophy of life can be tolerated." 

~~ JFK, Commencement address, Assumption College, June 3, 1955


Thanks, Will G...

This is a profound truth. The true born-again believer is the enemy of the state which is one of Satan's tools. Your paragraph preceding JFK's statement is pure truth and not understood by the huge majority of "Professing" Christians.

Those of us professing and working to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ are now terrorists.

We worship the King, not the state.

Without the Bible there are no moral ethics.

The DOJ and the DHS are the new Romans and Lynch the Pontius Pilot of her day. The names and faces may change, but the persecution hasn't. Some churches have become bully-pulpits for the liberal-communist agenda to over throw America. Churches are to be neutral and impartial when it comes to matters of politics, policies, etc. It's about fortifying faith - not hawking a particular candidate, cause, or agenda. When a church chooses sides, then you are no longer impartial and are not talking about God's work but man's flawed works. Politicians should not be speakers at sermons - sit in the pew, shut up, and think about being humble rather than how many votes you garner by "showing up".
