After the election, someone sent around a complaint because two Muslim women had been elected to Congress by our Christian nation. They compared it to the fox being in charge of the henhouse. What these people who posted don’t seem to realize is that the reason this country is becoming an anti-Christian nation is that Christians don’t live a Christian life, including some of those posting against these two Muslim women.
Like most Christians today, they live Christianish. We are prideful, puffing out our chest when President Trump says a prayer, bragging about how great it is to have a Christian president. Yet, we don’t call him out for his un-Christian behavior like calling a woman a horse.
We are hypocritical. We quickly point fingers at celebrities who berate the Christian lifestyle like Joy Behar, yet we watch television shows that are unChristian or show Christians in a bad light. On Law and Order, it didn’t take much to figure out the guilty party if the show had a diehard Christian or priest involved.
And don’t get me started on those Christians who are shacking up.
That’s the hypocrisy the rest of the world sees when we say we’re a Christian nation. Romans 12:2 tells us to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Yet we allow the world in all the time with the movies and television shows we watch, the books we read, and the friends we hang with.
And then we complain when our Christian nation doesn’t act very Christian.
You don’t have the right to hold somebody accountable for standards you refuse to apply to yourself. – Steven A. Smith, sportscaster
Our Christian nation starts with our own homes, not the neighbor across the street.
If you want things to change, fill the churches with more people than you fill football stadiums on Sunday. Stop living with some guy just because it’s the twenty-first century. Basically, stop saying you’re a Christian and then only living the parts that make you feel comfortable. Until Christians live a Christian life, this country will continue on its downward spiral of becoming a sinful nation instead of the Christian nation it once was.
If you or someone you know is in need of prayer, please let me know. I’ll be happy to pray for the situation.
