Church & Society
"You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, “
Can God be pleased with our nation and its moral decay? We have turned from God and worshiped Idols. Those idols are power, money, other gods, sex, leisure and so many things that distract or even divert us from worshiping God. God is not pleased when we do not acknowledge him with our minds and hearts.
The Church has been silent for too long. The Bride of Christ has been in on the worship of Idols too. She has been silent and sitting on the sidelines in the war for our country spiritually. The church has allowed the power of the state to usurp her rightful place in the welfare of the people. She has allowed the state to push God to the sidelines in the hearts and minds of the people.
The Church needs to retake her rightful place as the center of society. The government has it’s place but the church has it’s place. The government has a roll of security and laws but the Church has the responsibility of the spiritual welfare and the concerns of the poor. The Church has been kowtowed into a corner because the phase “Separation of Church and State” has been misused.
The Church needs to come out praying and become active. The hymn Onward Christian Soldiers is appropriate. The Bride of Christ needs to retake her rightful place in society.
