America is Losing Ground!Where are the Pastors?

View on YouTube

The election is four months away. The presidency of Donald Trump has given Christians a slight reprieve from the one-world order agenda. November 3 we will decide again if the Constitution as written and the culture we have grown up in is worth protecting. In the meantime, we’ve watched as cities burned, lives have been taken, masks and shutdowns are imposed, relationships curtailed, and churches were shuttered.

Not too many have openly complained. Those who do are ridiculed, labeled haters and racists, and even face fines for holding a wedding, a funeral, a church service, or going against the mandated narrative.

The loudest conservative voices continue to lose platforms on social media—their livelihoods taken and their opinions silenced–yet the “cancel culture” is just getting started! Wait six more months and see what’s left of products, song titles, the National Anthem, military base names, and movies or television series who tilt just a little too much towards portraying police in a positive light.

Who do we have to thank for this state of affairs? It would be easy to blame the politicians and the anarchists, but maybe we should look a little closer to home. Very close to home. “In the mirror” close to home. Because were it not for the backseat that the Christian church has taken—especially our leaders—we might not be on the precipice of disaster.

Consider for a moment pastors who are advocating the overthrow of the status quo—and keep in mind, these are just a sampling:

  • Pastor Jes Kast, a former conservative pro-lifer and evangelical, and now United Church of Christ pastor serves on the clergy-advocacy board for Planned Parenthood. She began moving away from conservatism in the George W. Bush years and told a reporter: “Like many Millennials coming out of evangelicalism, I began to care about different justice issues. I began to care about the Earth, and racial justice, and interfaith justice.”
  • Pastor Joshua Symonette lectured his congregation at National Community Church in Washington, DC, about the dangers of idolatry. In a sermon titled, “Who’s Your God?” He loosely compared anyone opposed to the toppling of Confederate statues to those who might worship the statue of Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel. The implication was that if you are not standing against President Trump in his protection of national monuments, you’re in idolatry. NCC is an Assemblies of God church, and lead Pastor Mark Batterson is a New York Times bestselling author.
  • Brian Houston of Hillsong Church promotes Black Lives Matter and the idea of radical and permanent change. He and other pastors supporting BLM ignore that fact that it is a Marxist organization whose founders (three black females, below) also describe themselves as “queers” who are working to dismantle the nuclear family, and who seek to destroy the idea that heterosexuality is normal. 

On the other side of the issue are pastors of many different churches and denominations, including Catholic leaders, who stand for the lives of the unborn and the value of American culture. Catholic Archbishop Vigano recently wrote a letter to President Trump, warning him of the eternal struggle of good versus evil and its parallels today in the deep state. He warned, 

  • “There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle…”

Where are the pastors warning the flocks about the dangers of anarchy disguised as love?

Has Jesus lost control of His church, or are we in the end of days where the wheat and the tares have grown up together, and it’s much easier to spot the difference? One bears fruit for the kingdom, and the other is barren. One is planted and brings forth a hundred-fold, but the other is thrown into the fire.

Today, under the cloak of restitution, restoration, and reparations, we find the basket that is never filled. No matter how many apologies, how much groveling, and how many trillions of dollars are thrown at the problem of historical racism, will it ever be enough? 

Billionaire Robert L. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Televisionrecently told an interviewer that anyone who has even one drop of African blood should receive reparations for slavery. The amount he says is sufficient is $14 trillion. To put that in perspective, the entire gross domestic product of every nation in the world today is $100 trillion—so he believes American taxpayers should foot the bill of 14 percent of the world’s wealth in order to heal racism.

Does Johnson think everyone who deserves reparations should submit to 23 and Me or Ancestry .com in order to have their heritage confirmed? He doesn’t say. Would $14 trillion be enough to satisfy the rage and change history? 

Johnson says yes, but Scripture says no. The love of money is the root of all evil, because behind it there is envy and jealousy.

For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. Prov. 6:34

Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?

Prov. 27:4 …jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Song of Sol. 8:6

Jesus warned us many times to repent to our Father for our sins. He also warned us that if we do not forgive, we will not be forgiven.

Where are the pastors asking the body of Christ to forgive the oppressors of the past? Where are the believers who would rather not envy sinners (and their filthy riches), but choose instead to fear the Lord all the day long and respect His loving kindness towards them? Apparently this is not politically expedient.

How to Pray: May Father God move on the minds and hearts of the pastors, turn them back to the mind of Christ. Pray for the upcoming elections, primaries and the general election, that they will be fair and God’s will prevails on earth as it is in heaven.
