Culture Of Corruption: The Need for Prayer
“Our greatest danger comes not from cultural forces we oppose, but from those we embrace.“ Tony Campolo
Most of Christians would not embrace such obviously denigrated values as abortion upon demand, unbridled pornography and violence in the media, soft laws on drug use and drug peddling, etc.
But is it possible that we, like the frog slowly boiling to death in the kettle, are unknowingly and perhaps unwittingly being seduced to embrace cultural values that violate Biblical Christianity? For example:
The night before the cross, Jesus prayed thus to the Father on behalf of His disciples: “My prayer is not that You take them out of the world but that You protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.” (John 17:15-17)
Jesus knew that only through the cleansing power of His Word would the disciples survive the Enemy’s seduction of worldly forces… a bewitchment that is blithely embraced today by much of the Body of Christ.
And it is precisely because of its deadly seduction that the Christian community’s compromising embrace of contemporary cultural values is infinitely more lethal than the more obvious sins the world attempts to foist upon us.
Thank you R. Dwight Hill, I could not agree more. In fact as Christians who live in America we are experiencing first hand what happens when we DISENGAGE from the fight against evil and just LIVE AND LET LIVE. We are to be the agents of change in America. The fact of the matter is that with all the talk this past campaign season of HOPE AND CHANGE for some reason the church did not realize it was a CALL TO ACTION for us to EFFECT the change. So now it is our time to rise up and be the men and women of God we were saved to be.To be the salt and light we are supposed to be. It is the responsibility of the church, those who are called by His name, to humble ourselves and repent. Seek the face of God and pray for the healing of our nation. Therefore I have proposed in our church and to whomever wishes to participate an AMERICA CHAPTER 7.
May 7th is the National Day of Prayer
and we will be holding 7 days of prayer May 7th through the 14th. We will pause for 14 mins each day at 7:14 AM or 7:14 PM and will be praying for the healing of our nation and for the spiritual condition of the church and our land. We are hoping for a CHAPTER 7 bailout of our current state and a restoration of the values we once held dear. Care to join us?
