Patriotic Americans on the steps of the Michigan capitol building, telling the Governor to “End the Lockdown!”
Just one day after the massive populist protests in Michigan, in which thousands of the state’s residents shut down traffic leading to the state capitol and descended peacefully on foot onto the capitol grounds, many of them openly carrying sidearms and AR-15s strapped over their shoulders…
…and just one day after the governor of Kentucky was shouted down by hundreds of his own constituents who were boisterously protesting his egregious “coronavirus” shutdown policies…
…and just one day after church leaders started filing lawsuits in federal court against the restrictions on church function…
…President Trump stepped forward to hastily announce on national television that as soon as the infection rate slows down, he’s going to begin reopening the country using a graduated, three-step plan.
This proves the old political adage, “When elected officials begin to feel the heat, they suddenly begin to see the light,” meaning that growing public pressure on elected officials really works. You just need to have the courage (and faith in God) to take a stand, and hold that stand. Even a solitary stand, if need be.
What They Fear
The one thing our governmental overlords are still afraid of is this: Open civil disobedience.
That’s exactly what they were facing the day before yesterday when angry but nevertheless peaceful citizens – many of the openly armed — began descending upon the Michigan state capital.
And quite frankly, it’s exactly what they’re still facing, today, as more and more people come to realize our government has just given away $6 TRILLION in taxpayer money to some of the richest mega-corporations in the world, while average Americans were offered only a single paltry $1,200 payment to make up for the completely unnecessary loss of their jobs and their family’s livelihoods.
It’s the ultimate insult.
What’s more, American small businesses were offered only a total of $329 million in “coronavirus aid,” which ran out after only three short weeks, leaving most small businesses twisting in the wind, wondering if they’ll ever recover or find the financial resources needed to re-open and start again from scratch.
Folks, these 30.2 million small businesses are the actual financial backbone of the nation. They employ more Americans than all of the mega-corporations put together. And they’re the ones taking the brunt of this crisis. But they’re not the ones who got the needed help in time of crisis. And that should tell you exactly how our supposedly benevolent overlords feel about us.
Worse yet, the multi-trillion dollar bailout of the major multi-national corporations is open-ended, meaning they’ll get trillions more taxpayer dollars as the need arises over the weeks and months directly ahead.
But what more help might America’s 30.2 million small businesses get? None. And what more aid might the average financially destitute American get for all of their troubles? None. You’re on your own.
Protesters block the streets around the Michigan state capitol, telling their Governor, “End the Lockdowns!”
The giveaway of trillions of dollars’ worth of taxpayer money to huge, multi-national corporations that should have simply been allowed to fail, is at least 10 times more extravagant than the last taxpayer bailout of the same damned corporations. Yes, ten times!
In 2008 Bush bailed out these very same mega-corporations to the tune of $700 billion dollars. Today, it’s $6 trillion, and counting.
A single trillion dollars is one thousand billion dollars. So, $6 trillion is six thousand billion dollars. THINK ABOUT THAT. We’ve now gone from handing over $700 billion in taxpayer money to the richest men in the world, to handing out six thousand billion dollars to them.
It’s your money they’re using. At least, you’re on the hook for it, as a taxpayer, because it’s now become part of the U.S. debt. You’ll be paying on it, and your children will be paying on it, and your grandchildren will be paying on it, and your great-grandchildren will be paying on it, for as far into the future as the eye can see.
So, this is not over, by far. It will affect every aspect of your life, for decades into the future, and even far beyond that.
Truth be told, no one with any common sense believes Trump is going to open the country – at least to the same extent it was open before the crisis — any time soon. And even if he finally does, his so-called “three-stage plan” is not without flaws.
For example, stage one of his plan is to send people back to work, “sometime after the virus dies down.” When that will be, they don’t know. It could be months. It could be years. No dates were given. But someday. You can count on it, because Trump promised it, just like he promised us we’d be through this by Easter.
But it’s not until stage two of his plan that schools will be allowed to reopen, prompting many parents to ask, “How the hell are we supposed to go back to work during stage one, when our kids will be home alone every day the entire time?” After all, in 85% of American families, both parents must work just to pay the bills.
So, Trump’s plan is perhaps poorly-thought-out. But more importantly, it’s a mollifying tactic. It’s designed to soothe raised hackles. It’s designed to short-circuit the growing civil disobedience.
His three-step plan might actually be put into action one day. Or, it might never be put into action. But their hope is that by simply announcing there’s “a plan to reopen the country” it will help stave off the growing grassroots rebellion that’s been fomenting for the past month throughout numerous states.
But the point is this: The pressure from beleaguered citizens is already working, and will continue to work, if we’ll just keep it up. They’re definitely taking note of America’s mood, and factoring it into their decisions. You’ve just witnessed what one lousy day of protesting can do. The Orange Man hastily trots himself out in front of the cameras and announces on national TV, “Hey, don’t worry…I’m going to reopen the country someday soon.”
Yes, the politicians began to cave-in as soon as some of the hardier elements among the American population began to wake up and start making noise. LEARN THE LESSON FROM THAT. It’s important. Understanding the lesson can make your future. Failing to understand the lesson can break your future.
What You Can Do
“So Steve,” one concerned gentleman wrote me today, “I understand what you’re saying about the loss of freedoms we’re experiencing over a virus no more deadly than the seasonal flu. I understand the blood of our forefathers was shed for those very same freedoms. And I can clearly see those freedoms are being taken away from us under flimsy excuse. But what exactly are Christians supposed to do to fight back? Are you actually telling us to take up arms against our own government?”
No, I’m not asking you to take up arms.
Instead, I’m asking you to be up-in-arms. Angry. Righteously indignant at the growing loss of freedoms and liberties that’s been foisted upon us so the government can rob the treasury of trillions upon trillions of taxpayer dollars and give it away to the richest corporations in the world, and we can’t even publicly protest the theft. We’re expected to cower in our homes, with masks on.
Hell, we can’t even go to work and gripe about the situation over the coffee hutch at break time. And that’s largely because they don’t want us getting together, comparing notes, and figuring out it’s not about the virus at all, and it never has been. It’s all about the money.
The Treasury has been raided by the globalist robber barons. The wealth of our nation has been stolen. Our own leaders are complicit. And We the People, who are actually on the hook for the money, collectively, weren’t even consulted. Instead, we were robbed of our own jobs and sent home to stew about it…with homemade facemasks on. Geesh.
So, have you at least tried thinking about different things you can do, rather than just instantly dismissing the whole idea of taking action with “Well, what good would it do, anyway?”
What if the Founding Father’s had taken the lackadaisical attitude when the full military might of Britain came against them? We wouldn’t even have a country to defend today if the Founders had held those faithless do-nothing attitudes. Instead, in writing, they publicly pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to secure and defend America’s freedoms.
Today, as I think back about the incredible amount of courage it must have taken to publicly sign their names to that document – the Declaration of Independence — I cannot help but think that the best way to honor their courage is for each of us to consider making a similar personal pledge to our fellow Americans.
If more Christians don’t get their dander up a bit, and start speaking out, right now, while the momentum is turning to our side, we simply WON’T have a “free country” left to defend.
So that brings us back to the question: What can you do?
Have you even considered some of these extremely simple tasks, now that you have so much free time on your hands?
Writing, emailing or calling your local mayor, your city council members, and your local police chief or Sheriff to express your views about what’s happening.
Writing, emailing or calling the editor of your local newspaper to express your views about what’s happening.
Writing, emailing or calling the Governor of your state to express your views about what’s happening.
Writing, emailing or calling the President of the United States to express your views about what’s happening.
Writing, emailing or calling the Vice-President of the United States to express your views about what’s happening.
Writing, emailing or calling the Attorney General of the United States to express your views about what’s happening.
Can you imagine what would happen if every patriotic Christian in America flooded the inboxes, mail boxes and phones of our leaders with the simple message “End the Lockdowns now, or you’ll regret it at the ballot box.”?
Can you see the looks on your leader’s faces as the guy from the mailroom comes into their office and says, “I have about 4,000 letters from your constituents saying ‘End the lockdown now, or you’ll regret it at the ballot box.’ What would you like me to do with them?”
Never forget: “When they begin to feel the heat, they begin to see the light.”
Or, if you’ve already done all of the above…
Have you also written up a List of Grievances and Petition for Redress, like our Founding Father’s did, and sent it to the appropriate federal, state and local authorities?
Have you searched online for local peaceful protest events you can attend, such as the protest recently held at the state capitol in Michigan in which thousands of citizens sick and tired of being locked out of their businesses and churches, and closed up in their houses, blocked traffic all around the capitol building and then marched to the capitol steps to express their grievances over the lockdowns? Or like the peaceful protest at the Kentucky state capitol in which the collective voices of the protestors drowned out the gloom-and-doom “pro-lockdown” speech being given by the Kentucky governor Andy Beshear?
Did you realize Christian pastors are suing the state of California for their lockdown of churches? Have you considered joining the California lawsuit, or at least helping fund it? How about starting a lawsuit in your own state where churches have been shut down?
Or if none of that is your cup of tea, have you considered doing what this intrepid family did, and peacefully protest (and educate others) by putting a sign on your car saying, “Seasonal Flu kills more than COVID”?
That’s actually Brandon Ward’s family car in the photo above. As he explained in an article posted to the World Events and the Bible website, for a total investment of just $4.50 he was able to buy several brightly colored window markers and make his point to the world around him.
Do you understand the power of that message?
What if EVERY Christian wrote that message on their cars in big, neon-colored window markers And what if, on your opposite car window you wrote “End the Lockdowns!”? If enough Christians were seen standing up and speaking truth to power like that, in every state, it would begin stirring debate among the people, and the politicians would begin to get the message.
There are many, many ways to protest before we ever reach the stage of armed revolt. And many ways to educate.
Look, your protest doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. Just do something. Overcome the fear and act in faith on what you know to be true. After all, exactly what do you have to be afraid of? “If God be for you, who can be against you?”
As I’ve stated 1,000 times now over the past few weeks, it’s the combined ongoing efforts of thousands of determined individual Christians, each one speaking truth to power in his or her own way, that can turn this tide and help save the country.
And when we put that collective pressure on our representatives – locally, statewide and federally — they suddenly start to remember just who it is they’re actually supposed to be serving. From time to time, they need that reminder.
Fat, Lazy Christians
But Christians have become complacent – i.e., spiritually fat and lazy, just like Deuteronomy 32 states of “Jeshuran.” No faith left.
They mouth the words “Lord, lord” a lot, but His Word is actually far from their hearts. And you can actually see this when it comes time for action, because they simply won’t take any. Instead, they make excuses. At their worst, they manipulate and use God’s Word to justify their excuses.
When it comes to acting in faith, they honestly don’t even know what that means. They think faith is a feeling. It’s not a feeling, folks. It’s the willingness to take action, in God’s name, when everyone else is too afraid to take action. That’s what true faith is.
The Muslims still have it. The Jews still have it. But Christians lost it a long time ago. Even those sporting themselves to be “God’s elect” have retreated into the shadows of fear, claiming “God fights my battles for me.”
No, He fights them with you, meaning you have to take the initial action and, if you put it into His hands first after asking for guidance and direction, He’ll bless those efforts.
But the only battles He fights for you are the battles of Armageddon and Hamon-Gog at His Second Coming. And folks, this isn’t His Second Coming. So quit putting the cart before the horse. God doesn’t like it.
I promise you this:
If you continue to use His Word to justify your fear and faithless inaction, He’ll never lift a finger for you again. Why? Because when your time to act on your faith came along, you wilted.
You actually thought your silence was a demonstration of your faith. Unbelievable. Speaking out publicly would have demonstrated your faith. But being silent only demonstrates your cowardice and complacency. You’ve embraced your chains, and that means He can’t use you. You’re unfit.
The “Delivered Up Before My Time” Excuse
“Well, Steve, you simply don’t understand. I’m not going to do anything that might get me delivered up before my time,” many fellow Christians have written to tell me.
But it’s they who don’t understand, and are using that little jingoism — “delivered up before my time” (a phrase which occurs nowhere in the Bible) — like a security blanket in order to justify their personal inaction and fear.
The fact of the matter is this:
You’ll never be delivered up if you’ve been tested and have failed the test through inaction and fear. Never. God just doesn’t work that way. He doesn’t give the job to fearful people who cower in the shadows at the first sign of trouble, and then blithely use Scripture to justify their inaction and low faith.
Being delivered up to the Synagogue of Satan is not some automatic destiny. It’s earned. It’s earned by people with courage and faith. People who won’t wilt at the first sign of trouble. People who will look to their Bibles for courage to act, rather than for reasons to fail to act.
God isn’t going to use anyone who hasn’t already proven their ability to stand firmly in their faith and take action in the face of persecution. God tries and tests people’s mettle. That means, He puts them through persecutions to see how they’ll react.
For example, we have the example of little David, who, as a young man tending his father’s sheep, first had to face a lion attacking one of the lambs he was responsible for. Then, he had to face a raging bear attacking the lamb (the lamb represents Christianity, if you haven’t figured that out yet; and you’re supposed to be little David). Let’s see what happened:
1 Samuel 17:34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
1 Samuel 17:35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
1 Samuel 17:36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.
1 Samuel 17:37 David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.
So David strode forth in the face of a potential horrific death to himself, and slew both the lion and the bear, with his own bare hands. He saved the little lamb taken by the lion and the bear. He took the action, first, and the Lord blessed that action.
And his faithful action on behalf of the little lamb qualified him to take the stand against Goliath, who was threatening the “sheep” of Israel. Little David proved himself worthy, through his faithful actions. He could have walked away from those bleating little sheep saying to himself, “Heck, I’m not going to risk my very life over a stupid sheep.”
But if he had wilted in the face of fear, God could have never used him against Goliath.
Instead, without a second thought, David jumped straight into the fray and boldly faced down the lion, and afterward, the bear. His honor and his duty as the keeper of the sheep – i.e., a type of Christ – was at stake. And he wasn’t going to allow fear to besmirch that honor. He was an overcomer.
An overcomer isn’t something you can claim to be, and suddenly you are. You have to actually overcome something, to be an overcomer. You have to take action against what might appear – like little David’s lion and bear – to be an insurmountable obstacle.
So, if you say you’re an overcomer, then what have you actually overcome?
How about your fear of a manufactured virus crisis being used to rob your country blind? How about your fear of standing up for yourself and your family when you’ve been stripped of just about everything – job, income, food supply, right to travel, right to associate with friends and neighbors in church, and more?
You see, God uses troubles like this to weed out the weak and fearful, just as He did with Gideon’s 32,000 troops that were ultimately whittled down to just 300 men after the 22,000 fearful were sent home (Judges 7:3), and another 9,700 who simply weren’t paying attention to the seriousness of the situation at hand were also sent home (Judges 7:4-8).
He sends home the fearful. And He further separates out those who aren’t paying close enough attention to the situation.
Back in Old Testament times, little David boldly showed us the way to get things done. The heavily armed and highly trained military troops of Israel quaked in their boots at Goliath’s daily taunts.
But not little David. His righteous indignation was spurred the very moment he heard the arrogant rantings of that giant warrior. And he evoked God’s Word, stepped forward in pure and sincere faith, with nothing more than a slingshot in his hands, and quickly brought the massive beast down.
That’s faith-in-action. But never forget, David would have never been granted that privilege of slaying Goliath if he’d have chickened out back when the lion and the bear attacked the lamb.
I’ve got news for you, folks. The lion and the bear are attacking the lamb again. And if, when the antichrist finally arrives, you want the privilege of being delivered up to the synagogues of Satan so God can testify through you, then you’d better show yourself worthy and faithful, now, while you still have a chance.
But Christians don’t really believe in that kind of Davidic faith-in-action any longer. That’s too bad, because by the time this manufactured crisis – err, robbery of our nation’s Treasury and jailing of our people in their own homes — is over, it could cost them everything, including their relationship with God.
A form of dreary servitude to the will of federal government and their globalist overlords will ultimately be their future. And frankly, it’s what they deserve for their complacency and lack of faith and courage.
Why Do We Cheer Civil Disobedience as Long as It’s Not Our Own?
What’s funny to me is that we, here in the west, tend to cheer civil disobedience when it’s someone else doing the fighting.
For example, only a few short months ago we cheered when the young Hong Kong students boldly protested in the streets against the oppressive Chinese communist regime, and stood toe-to-toe against armed Chinese troops.
And only a few short months earlier, we cheered when the French “Yellow Vests” fought in the streets with French authorities against the excessively high “carbon taxes” the French government leveled upon them.
And we cheered when an entire country, like Briton, rebelled against its government overlords and exited the oppressive European Union.
We cheer and cheer them.
But here in America? “Oh, Steve, don’t you know this is YHVH’s battle? We’re not supposed to do any fighting. We’re not supposed to stand up for our rights. This is the Egyptian captivity of the end days. We’re supposed to sit back, take our lumps and let the Lord do our fighting for us.”
Really? Where in God’s Word did you ever get that idea? Honestly, I have nothing but contempt mixed with profound sorrow for such a simpering coward who twists God’s Word out-of-proportion in order to justify his cowardice.
The bottom line is this: Do as much as you can do. But at least do something. Faithfully.
For example, make a simple list of seven things you feel comfortable doing to help put more pressure on our overlords to stop the lockdowns of Christian churches and people’s homes and businesses. Then, take action on each of those seven things. Then, re-examine your list, and re-think additional possibilities of action, to see if there’s anything else you can do.
“But,” you might say, “that’s an awful lot of work, Steve.” Well, bless your pointed little head, you lazy ass. Quit calling yourself a faithful Christian and go curl up in your bed while everyone else does the heavy lifting for you. But we’ll remember. We’ll remember your cowardice and laziness and lack of faith. And so will God.
But if, by some outside chance, you still have a little bit of Christian courage left – which, by the way, requires at least a mustard’s seed worth of Christian faith — you can start by signing the petition at the link below. This is a simple but powerful message asking your local mayor and governor to do the right thing and reopen your specific town, city and state in the face of growing new evidence pointing to the fact that coronavirus is no more virulent or deadly than the seasonal flu.
As you’ll see, the petition (under the heading “Our Stand”) contains a short list of grievances, very similar to the way our Founders wrote out their grievances first, in what was called a “Petition for the Redress of Grievances,” and sent the petition to the rulers in Britain to give them the opportunity to do the right thing.
That’s the first step in peaceful protest.
Here’s what the rest of your petition to your local and state government says:
“As a constituent and concerned citizen, I am writing to urge you to reopen our schools, businesses and public spaces before May 1.
I’m sure that you’re aware that your constituents are suffering immensely:
– Many are without employment and have no way to provide for themselves and their families. They live each day in constant worry.
– Some have had to close businesses that they poured their hearts and souls into building and sustaining. Their hopes and dreams have been shattered.
– Some have relatives who are elderly or fatally ill whom they can’t visit and who will ultimately end up dying alone. This can lead to overwhelming grief and trauma.
– Some are not getting needed medical care, and others are being refused life-saving medical treatments by hospitals that are reserving medical supplies for COVID patients.
– Many are crippled with fear and anxiety over constant news reports about coronavirus, the possibility of death, and a shortage of hospital beds, supplies and treatments for those who fall ill.
– Despair, depression and devastation are widespread — be it from job losses, isolation, a lack of support systems, the erosion of fundamental freedoms of healthy, law-abiding citizens, and uncertainty over what the future holds.
– Staggering unemployment statistics and the loss in GDP alone cannot measure the degree of mass human suffering and the devastating impact stay-at-home orders have had on the human spirit.
– Projections by the Imperial College London — which were later retracted because they were vastly exaggerated — were used to justify the shutdown of our country, affecting the lives of hundreds of millions of healthy Americans.
– The model’s authors went on to acknowledge that two-thirds of the people projected to die from COVID-19 would have died with or without the infection due to the vast prevalence of chronic disease and related co-morbidities.
– Citizens now know that the real numbers and risks from COVID-19 are dramatically different. As such, the proportionate government response must also be dramatically different.
It’s extremely troubling that data upon which life-and-death decisions are being made is inaccurate and methodologically flawed.
Both the US health statistics agency and the World Health Organization have announced that the certification of “deaths by COVID-19” requires zero proof that the virus is the cause of death. As a result, the official death statistics attributed to COVID-19 do not require cases to be positively confirmed through virus testing. Merely “suspected” cases of COVID-19 are being included in the official numbers.
I understand that your office holds very broad police powers during times of emergency. It is your responsibility to implement safety measures to protect all citizens during a declared emergency.
In the best interest of our families and your voters, those powers must be used wisely. Public health policies are not intended to, nor will they ever be able to, provide individual or collective health. Public health policies have a proper role in society to shape a landscape conducive to achieving health: clean air; clean water; properly functioning sanitation systems; solid infrastructure; and education and resources on hygiene, nutrition and food preservation standards.
It’s not the government’s role to guarantee health or to privilege certain lives over others. It is the government’s role to protect voters’ fundamental freedoms, including the freedom to worship and to provide for their families, without state interference.
Closing all schools and public spaces; closing all “non-essential” businesses; mandating that healthy, law-abiding citizens stay at home; and imposing other extreme measures has created widespread devastation.
The more than 17 million people who have filed for unemployment over the past few weeks far surpasses anything we saw during the Great Recession of 2008 when 6.6 million people lost their jobs. The shutdown must end by May 1, when more than 26 million individuals are projected to be unemployed.
The constant perpetuation of the fear of grave sickness and death must be lifted to return communities back to a state of functioning.
I urge you to re-open our state’s schools and businesses by May 1.
Please implement commonsense policies to protect the vulnerable while restoring people’s livelihoods and mitigating the real costs associated with shutting down schools and businesses.
I implore you to allow healthy individuals to return to work so that our jobs, our economy and the well-being of our citizens are not destroyed.
Thank you in advance for taking these bold steps and putting measures in place that serve the best interests of your constituents.”
Here’s the link, once again:
So, there’s at least one thing you can do, right this minute. It’s not complicated. And if the Governor of you state, and the local authorities, were to start getting hundreds or even thousands of these from angry citizens, what do you think might happen? “When they feel the heat, they suddenly start seeing the light.”
You can also:
Keep the pressure up, folks. It’s actually working. But we can make it work a lot better. Unless, of course, you’re actually enjoying your chains.
The “5 P’s” for Christian Action
I’ll leave you with one last bit of food for thought:
Here are my “5 P’s” for Christian action, in the consecutive order they should be implemented, one at a time, giving each one the time needed before moving on to the next:
Pray daily for help from God Almighty; ask Him to move on people’s hearts and minds to help them understand what’s really going on, and ask Him to bless your efforts in standing up for your country and give you guidance and direction in doing so. Then…
Petition your local, state and federal governments for redress of grievances. Then…
Peacefully protest, in person, at local, state and federal governments for redress of grievances. Then…
Pursue lawsuits (or join in existing lawsuits) against local, state and federal governments for redress of grievances. Then…
Prepare to take physical action should it ever become necessary
Now, does your list have to be the same as my list? Of course not. Your list is your list. And I’m not your boss. Jesus is.
I’m just a guy with a goad, trying to spur the sheep to rally around their Shepherd, in faith, and stop embracing their newfound shackles. It’s embarrassing to your Lord to see you like that. It’s actually quite shameful.
Still too scared to act? Why? After all, if you truly have God, in Christ, what in the world do you have to be fearful about? In closing, let’s take a quick look at the last eight verses of Romans chapter 8, for some reassurance from on high:
Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Rom 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Rom 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Let those words comfort and invigorate and encourage you. Let them inspire you to be a true and faithful man or woman of God in this time of crisis and deception.
Then, please do something. Take a stand. If it’s the first time you’ve ever had to do so, let me tell you a little secret: It’s quite invigorating, once you get past the initial fear. And you’ll actually feel good about yourself for a long time afterwards.
Better still, you’re heavenly Father will see that you’re still a viable Christian. And that’s what really matters.
