I Prayed have prayed

Should Christians get involved in politics? If we are frustrated with ungodly leadership in our nation, what is our responsibility? Is there something we can do besides pray?

In this video clip from RealTruthRealQuick.com, Todd Wagner of Watermark Community Church shares some key insights from Scripture, as well as some historical facts to clarify a believers role in government.

The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men. (Plato)

Amen! Well said…Father God, remove all fear from us that we may go out to all nations and spread the Gospel in schools, prisons, and yes even in politics! In Your name Yeshua we pray Amen.

Religious “Political” Oppression? The “church” has allowed itself to be backed into a corner of deception and lies on the false concept of “separation of church and state”, and the “1954 Johnson Amendment” to the IRS 501(c)3 tax exempt status with restrictions on endorsing or opposing political candidates. These imposed restrictions on the church are in opposition to what the First Amendment guarantees in the U.S. Constitution concerning the “freedom of religion” in America: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech” … Deception and lies are the most successful tactics of Satan to hinder truth on every level – spiritual or secular! It is my opinion that church leadership has predominately failed to address these major problems. There’s an important responsibility taught about this in James 4:17 – “Therefore, anyone who knows what is right but fails to do it is guilty of sin”. Jesus taught a parable about the obedient servant: Luke 12:48b – “Much will be required from everyone to whom much has been given. But even more will be demanded from the one to whom much has been entrusted.” The “church” has predominately failed to be the “salt and light” in the world! Jesus taught: Matthew 5:13 – “You are like salt for the whole human race. But if salt loses its saltiness, there is no way to make it salty again. It has become worthless, so it is thrown out and people trample on it. Matthew 5:14 – “You are like light for the whole world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid”. Did Jesus say that the church could not be involved with the political system? NO! He said to be “the salt and the light” in the world we live in. Because of the above mentioned failures of the “church” we are reaping the consequences of a very immoral and corrupt society on every level that includes our government! We need godly leaders in seats of authority on every level of our society to achieve righteousness and guarantee our godly rights under the U.S. Constitution. God has a full proof plan to reverse failed godliness in a nation: 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”. HUMILITY PRAYER AND REPENTANCE: God’s 3-point guaranteed plan to heal America! Kind of a profound plan, but is apparently being ignored by the “people called by His name”. A very sad commentary indeed!

This is excellent and well said/laid out! Well worth taking the time for personal research and passing on across our churches. Even today the life and honor of the Rev. Billy Graham is a great example for living out our faith in community
