"But when Jesus heard this, He said, 'It
is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.'
But go and learn what this means: 'I DESIRE
COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
It is a sad day in America, when secular organizations are begging
and pleading with the people of God to aid in the fight against domestic violence. In their research, many agencies have found
that church leaders turn a deaf ear to the scourge of domestic violence, and they are reluctant to acknowledge community resources
whether they are private or funded by the government.
Personally, I respect the Constitutional Separation of Church
and State, for our government should not have the power to dictate how Americans should worship God, or how we should live
our lives. Nor should they have any say as to whether a person chooses or not chooses to acknowledge the God of heaven. After
all, even God has given man free will, so religion is a matter of ones own personal choice.
However, one thing that every American should and must acknowledge
is the fact that a major crisis in our country will eventually affect each and every one of us in one way or another. Case
in point, are we not all affected by the current economic crisis that is resounding around the world? Even the wealthy are
re-evaluating their priorities as to what is important as far as frivolous spending is concerned. They are tightening their
belts, selling their jewels, and cleaning out their closets.
September 11th is another example of how a tragedy touched the
lives of the American people as a whole. Many of us shed tears for people that we never met. There was sadness in our hearts
even though we weren’t personally related to any of the victims. As a country, we have survived many catastrophes and
hardships, and still managed to remain strong by God’s amazing Grace. We came together when Katrina wiped out homes
and lives, dreams and comfort. Countless souls gave of their time and their own means to ease the suffering of strangers.
Their mission was not one of compulsion, but from the heart.
Listen well America, there is a new terror on the rise, and it
is silently destroying the very fabric of our blessed country. It is a demon in its own making, and a destroyer of homes and
families. Its poisonous tentacles have reached around the world, ensnaring the old, young, infirmed, religious, non-religious,
male, female, even our beloved pets. This is a demon of old, one that was hidden behind closed doors, locked away in secrecy.
It fed on hidden shame and silent suffering, growing more and more vicious with each passing day.
God sees the whole, we see it in part, but we know it by its fruits.
It produces angry children who no longer believe in hope; and they don’t care who they hurt of kill. These are the same
angry children that will someday meet your sweet innocent offspring, and perhaps date or marry them. Sadly, they will bring
to their relationships all the dysfunctional upbringing they learned in their homes, and mirror the violence of their parents.
This evil-domestic violence will someday touch your lives. What will you do then? Will you still say that violence in the
home is a private matter? Will you then join the ranks of the secret society of shame and suffering? Or will you take a stand
now before domestic violence knocks on your door?
We live in a dark world that is growing darker each day. Thousands
commit suicide each year as they see the hope of life growing dim. Our American homes are in trouble, and private turmoil
has a direct effect on our public affairs. It was once said, “As the home goes, so goes the nation.” The chaos
that we are witnessing in our society today is a result of the breaking down of our American homes. Dysfunction in our families
produce lost, angry and vicious dead souls. They bring their fury to your door, kick it in, and boldly stick a gun in your
face as you sleep in your own bed.
The people of God have been given a charge to be the “lights
of the world.” Christians have the Word of God that has the Power to make a difference in the lives of many. If we don’t
allow the true light of the Gospel to shine, how will those who grope in darkness find their way out? Secular organizations
should not have to knock on church doors for help; Christians should be leading the way to peace and love in our world. But
something is dreadfully wrong isn’t it? The very people who claim to know “What thus saith the Lord” are
the very ones that are neglecting to proclaim the Power of God, at least as it should be proclaimed.
It seems that the religious attitude of many is, “I got
mine; you get yours.” And as long as evil doesn’t affect some Christians personally, they view many societal atrocities
as “That’s their problem.” Or they will conclude, “They need Jesus!” Oh my God yes they do!
But if we as Believers don’t show the world the way to Jesus, how will the lost know which way to go? If our spiritual
lights are dim, flickering, or have been snuffed out by the cares of life or indifference, what good is our witness?
It is my sincere hope and prayer as I build this web site, and
as you read what is written that spiritual change will truly come to America. But first, the church must come clean and get
it right. We must first exit our own spiritual darkness before we can rekindle our spiritual flames, and loose the chains
that bind those in the Satan’s prisons. And where does this spiritual rekindling begin? It begins in the pulpit.
