Proverbs 25:26 If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain, or muddying a spring.
We are living in a day when Christians have been intimidated by a politically correct society to the point that we are afraid to stand up for our faith. We are told that if we speak out on what the Bible clearly lists as sin and perversion, we are not showing the love of Christ. Even Christians try to use Scripture to prove that you should not speak up. “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers….” The main problem here, is that most of those who quote such scriptures are not wrestling at all……They will not stand for anything and they say, “well, God has it in control.” Then they proceed to allow wickedness to go on unchecked until it comes to roost a little closer to home: perhaps their children become addicted to drugs or alcohol. Or their daughters have an abortion, Etc. Then they want to blame God for not stopping this.
Our society is moving further and further from the truth of God’s word and we as Christians are remaining silent. We give in, and let the wicked control all areas of our government, our entertainment, our schools, even our churches and the muddy waters are become positively unfit to swim in.
Do not let what this verse predicts come to pass! It starts with the word: “IF” which means this is a conditional outcome: IF we give in, the waters become polluted. Yes, we have an uphill battle to fight in our nation since Christians have let the devil take his course over this last generation. But, remember: There is a BIG difference between difficult and impossible.
And with God, nothing shall be impossible Luke 1:37.
But if we continue to give in to the wicked without so much as a whimper, we, as Christians, will not even be able to live the United States of America and worship in freedom. Our children and grandchildren will pay the price in persecution for our lack of guts. Remaining silent, proves we are ashamed.
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
We need to stand up as a group, but do not wait for others to speak up. They are probably waiting for you!
