What Persecuted Underground Christians Can Teach Christians In America – Sunday Thought For The Day
The Christian church in America should be a beacon of light and encouragement to underground Christians in North Korea, China, Moslem countries, and around the world. Instead it is an example of weakness, capitulation, and abandonment of the Word and principals of God.
False prophets and sexual sin that God calls an abomination, pollutes and infests pulpits throughout America. So-called Christian ministries seek the approval of the those who view Christ as little more than a curse word, as they are delightfully disobedient to God and His immutable word.
Persecuted Christians in China and Moslem countries are the testimonies of being true to God as they face literal death every day.
The problem with the Christian Church in America is that it has never known nor suffered persecution. The Christian Church in America is often more concerned about how many thousands fill the building each Sunday, than they are about the number of people who walk out of Church on Sunday filled with the Holy Spirit. Preaching such as Charles Spurgeon, Billy Graham, and Billy Sunday preached is no longer the norm but the infrequent.
The Church in America has grown soft, because it has never been battle tested. In today’s world the Christian church in America should be modeling the words of the Apostle Paul: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)
Would there be a Church today if the Apostles and first century church fathers has been as compromised as the church in America today. Tragically, many churches in America today are little more than social gatherings and representatives of godless social justice, but not of Jesus Christ.
Maybe it is time that the Christian underground Churches in North Korea, China, and Sharia Moslem countries send missionaries to America to teach Christians here just what it is to be true born-again Christians. Because, I am saddened to say that churches whose god is social justice, which is nothing more than an adjunct of Socialism; and churches who applaud themselves for embracing that which God calls an abomination are not Christian Churches. Churches who blissfully obey the children of Satan dictating the closing of churches and the abandonment of worship, are not exampling the Christianity we are instructed to live and exhibit.
READ: Matthew 5:13-16 KJV
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
