This kind of thinking has caused a decline of morality in America, I must say,where christians tolerate and accept evil things going on in our country that they should not.It shows how sick the church has become worthless and uneffective at taking a stand against evil and the church is partly responsible for the bloodshed in America.We now have a chance to change things for the better in America,though thanks to Donald Trump but it remains to be seen if we will. Now where you live you may be in a minority situation to where you can't effect much but the majority of Americans claim to be Christian and yet the moral decline in America has raged on with the church being dead.As Christians in America we can vote for morality and make an impact politically but we have'nt.
Donald Trump needs prayer and calls for a prayer meeting in the White House yesterday.
Morality is neither decided by votes, nor its shoved down people's throats. Politics and faith must never mix. Even as a minority this is clearer to me because someone else's morality is being forced on me. I'd better have my own morality than a state driven one.
I'm not implying we force morality or anything like that.I'm not advocating for a Christian theocracy in America but we have parties in America that are for certian things and we can vote people in office or out of office who are pushing things that are immoral.For instance when Roe vs Wade was passed the people in the party responible for it could have been voted out of office but were'nt. It almost sounds like you're saying that homosexuals,transgenders,etc can stand up and push and fight politically to get their way but Christians cannot do the same thing and are not allowed to participate in politics.This is the kind of thinking that has hurt America.Our freedoms we have in America come from God not government and so you cannot remove God from politics and keep freedom.Freedom must be defended and protected or the government takes our freedom away. Donald Trump says it like this "We do not worship government,we worship God."
