Does your Faith play a part in Politics??? By Pr Daniel / A great quote from Cindy Jacobs / Fantastic message from former US President Regan15 Comments Published by Office 2 May 2nd, 2013 in A Call To Action, Australia, Bible, Christian Church Issues, Courage, Elections, Family, Freedom of Religion, Multiculturalism, Politics, Rise Up Australia, World News
Could your personal faith play a part in your Political life?? Should people of faith be involved in Politics?? This is a very interesting question.
Very often, you hear the statement, “Church and State should stay separate. Christians should not be involved in Politics.”
May I humbly ask you a question, “How many times in the past year have you said something or complained about our Government?? When did you last do something to help the Government or the Nation??”
Whether you like it or not, Faith plays a major role in Politics. Even the Atheists cannot deny that their Faith that there is no God, very much moulds their world view on everything they do. One of the greatest lies that we in the Church have accepted is that ‘Church and State should not come together’, based on a misinterpreted statement of a speech, completely taken out of context, made by Thomas Jefferson, one of the first US Presidents.
Following is a link to a short video of an absolutely fantastic speech by former US President Ronald Regan. It is a must watch as it will definitely challenge you and make you want to get involved in the Political life of the Nation you live in.
Cindy Jacobs, a great woman of God from the US, made the following statement in her book ‘Reformation Manifesto’.
She stated, “’This gospel of the Kingdom will be preached Mathew 24:14’ echoed in my spirit as I read this. For my whole adult life I had thought that we would preach the gospel of salvation to all the world, and when everyone had heard, Jesus would return, but this is not what scripture says.
It says, we should preach the good news of the kingdom of heaven. In other words, it is not so much about answered altar calls as it is about inducting people into a new government. God’s Kingdom on earth. This gives me a much bigger responsibility for the world than I had previously understood.”
Mathew 6:9-13 (Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on EARTH as it is in heaven)
One of the greatest mistakes we can ever make as Christians is to stay away from public life and Politics, lock ourselves into holy huddles every Sunday, and then complain about any and everything.
Are we a part of the problem?? or are we a part of the solution?? I will let you answer.
The once Christian West is very rapidly losing its identity, but thank God He has preserved a remnant of people who will stand up and take the fight right into the enemy’s (devil) territory and take back what he has stolen from us.
May I plead and challenge all Christians to get real pro-active this Election and take a stand for our Nation. If less than 2% of Muslims and less than 2% of Gays can have such a loud voice in our Nation, how much louder can and should be the voice of the Church of Jesus Christ?
According to the last census, more than 60% in Australia stated that they were Christian.
RISE UP AUSTRALIA and take your stand to protect Australia and keep it Australian for our Sons, Daughters, Grand Children and Generations to come…
May God Bless You Abundantly,
