"There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough – a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice – which costs nothing, and is worth nothing."
– J. C. Ryle
The more I learn about this nation's leadership in the church and in government, the more I can clearly see why America is in the state that it is in. The compromise I see is second to none. Compromise, of course, is where two people get together and agree on what they both know is wrong.
Diplomacy (or political correctness) is another sorry trait these people take on, which is simply destroying our country. Diplomacy is nothing but seduction in another guise.
People in this country believe it is right to act out under false pretenses and expect the truth to be established. This is as about as backwards as you can get, yet this is what I see on a nationwide basis among the self-proclaimed leaders.
These people complain about what they tolerate. They try to win the "left" (as they call them) to their cause, yet they fail to realize that there would not be a left if they (the right) would do the right thing all of the time.
What is humorous about these people is the fact that they want to win over those who are at war with everything, from God to our constitutional republic, without offending them. These men fail to understand that truth demands a response, and the methodology they use to win over their enemies just happens to omit the very truth their enemies need to hear. There is war within the gates of America because these people do not understand that in war, truth is always the first casualty. Truth is what they fail to bring.
Their version of truth does not hold the truth of God's Word, nor does it make reference to Law (Article 4, Section 4), because they mean not to offend anyone. Friends, these people are the very reason you have a left. They stand for nothing and fall for everything. They have a graceless version of what love ought to exhibit.
It is good enough for them that others sacrificed for their freedoms, yet it is so offensive to tell them that they desecrate the very blood that was shed to give them the freedom that they now possess. (Hebrews 10:26)
These people mean not to offend anyone, yet they complain about those who are offending. They live under a feigned (counterfeit) and dissimulated (false pretense) version of love when it comes to their fellow man. (Matthew 10:34)
They love God and man so much that they are willing to see them both destroyed by the enemy that is in front of their faces, while they themselves turn the other cheek and hide behind the cloak of Christianity. Their actions, in truth, prove the opposite!
They expect to live in the land of the free, but they forget that it was the land of the brave that established this country.
These people who I am describing are at peace with a world that is at war with God. They say that they do not want to get into a fight to be in a fight, yet they fail to realize that the fight has already been provoked and that they themselves are under attack. They also fail to recognize that this tyrant in office does what he does because they are rebels against God and His principles.
Again, they fail to understand that war is the rule of force (the force of a totalitarian government), while real peace is found through the reign of God's moral Law.
These people complain (if they are around the right group of people), about a government that sanctions the death of babies and advocates abomination in the sight of God, but they dare not speak on God's behalf because they might endure persecution – or maybe receive some stains on their much-revered reputations. (Philippians 2:7)
The fact of the matter is that there is no difference between these people on the right and those on the left. As a matter of fact, they are the reason that we have a left, because in truth they are the left – and yet America has been led to believe that this is what America is made out of (concerning the right), as if to say that you are to model yourselves after their living example. What a joke. And the joke is on those who are led by these people's hypocritical deceptions.
These people act as if freedom is free. America is the land of the free because of the brave, and these people (the "right") are most definitely not brave.
Friends, I hope you are clear about who I am describing here. I am simply describing the modern-day version of those who wear the cloak of "Christian," "conservative" and "patriot." (Matthew 3:7)
