Fatalistic Christians Laying Groundwork for Enslavement
August 29, 2000
My mailbox is often inundated with rebuke and criticism
from Christian brethren. They accuse me of being out of
God's will, wasting God's time and money, violating the
"separation of church and state," among other things. A
recent email is a case in point.
A preacher writes, "When we ought to be jumping for joy and
praising the Lord at the unfoldment (his word) of his
prophesies concerning the one world government ... you want
to fight against God and try and prevent the world from
obeying the dictates of his word." He continues, "This
country has never been a 'Christian nation...'"
That such an opinion could be held by Christian leaders in
our country today is incredible, to say the least. No
wonder we cannot stir the pews to Christian activism. They
are being sedated and lulled to sleep by blind and callused
Our Lord told us that we are the "salt of the earth." Salt
is a preservative that prevents decay. When Christians
refuse to stand boldly and courageously against evil and
wickedness (in any form), they have lost their savor and
are declared to be "good for nothing."
God's Word foretold Christ's crucifixion, but Jesus
pronounced judgment upon the man who fulfilled the
prediction. Most assuredly, Judas Iscariot fulfilled
prophecy. Does this mean that he can claim no personal
responsibility for his treason? Of course not.
That God's Word warns of coming evil and wickedness
provides no excuse for Christians to cowardly shirk their
responsibility to stand against evil and wickedness
wherever and however it appears! And make no mistake about
it: the effort to steal our nation's sovereignty is wicked!
God established nationhood. It is a devilish notion to
sacrifice our independence to any global institution.
Christians who refuse to stand against this satanic system
are traitors to their country and to their Creator!
Would the good minister take the same approach to a
maniacal home invader? Would he suggest that to stand
against a rapist or murderer would be tantamount to
fighting against God? Is he suggesting that we should
simply praise the Lord and do nothing when evil men attempt
to kidnap our children, rape our wives, or murder our sons?
How ludicrous can one get?
That God will accomplish His sovereign plan is understood.
God has a job to do, and so do we. John Quincy Adams said
succinctly, "Duty is ours; results are God's." If our
Christian forefathers had held the kind of fatalistic
beliefs that many preachers today hold, we would still be a
slave colony of Great Britain.
As to America not being a Christian nation: it is obvious
that there is a serious lack of knowledge regarding the
kind of men who carved out this nation, and their
philosophy of government. Samuel Chase is a prime example.
As a member of the Continental Congress and as an Associate
Supreme Court justice from 1796-1811, he certainly
understood America's founding principles. Chase said, "By
our form of government, the Christian religion is the
established religion; and all sects and denominations of
Christians are placed upon the same equal footing, and are
equally entitled to protection in their religious
Perhaps no name is more associated with America's fight for
independence than that of Patrick Henry. He emphatically
stated, "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often
that this great nation was founded, not by religionists,
but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of
America's first Supreme Court Chief Justice and co-author
of the Federalist Papers, John Jay, agreed. He said,
"Providence has given to our people the choice of their
rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and
interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer
Christians for their rulers."
The writer of our National Anthem, Francis Scott Key, was
no less convinced. He proclaimed, "The patriot who feels
himself in the service of God, who acknowledges Him in all
his ways, has the promise of Almighty direction, and will
find His Word in his greatest darkness, 'a lantern to his
feet and a lamp unto his paths.' He will, therefore, seek
to establish for his country in the eyes of the world, such
a character as shall make her not unworthy of the name of a
There is one more thing: Christ warned that when believers
lose their resistance to decay it will not be long and they
will be "cast out and trodden under the foot of men." This,
my friend, means that tyranny and oppression are not far
Fatalistic Christians are laying the groundwork for the
enslavement and persecution of their children. This is
nothing to rejoice about!
