Platitudes and Phoney Euphemisms
Op-Ed by Pastor James Wesley Jr Sunday 19, July 2020 @0546
The violence we see sweep our nation is truly troubling. We see chaos and violence of every sort as as our cities are set ablaze. This exploded when police officers arrested a black man (George Floyd) for bouncing a check. They had him restrained and his hands were cuffed behind him. The policeman had the suspect on the ground with his knee on his neck. The suspect was crying “I can’t breathe”… yet the arresting officer persisted… and the black man died as a result. This immediately resulted in peaceful demonstrations turning violent nationwide. There has been violent attacks on police, fire bombing of businesses and looting, with ongoing shootings in cities like Chicago where the death toll is increasing daily.
This violence is being led primarily by two organizations “Black Lives Matter and Antifa”. The BLM’S the excuse for their response is “righteous indignation”…This does not justify the chaos,and violence that is exploding across the nation. Destruction of businesses widespread looting and arson and some black owned businesses are being destroyed in this chaos violence and confusion. OK
Yes as we reflect on all that’s going on all the chaos and confusion violence. We ask ourselves where do we fit into this picture? How can we demonstrate the love of Christ without compromising HIS position? The opposition (LIBERATION THEOLOGY ) is expecting us to rush in and support “their” pursuit of “Social Justice”. This phrase “Social Justice” and what it means opens the floodgates of HELL flooding the culture with every demonic practice and belief under the sun. Our purpose as BELIEVERS is FOUND in the BOOK! GOD’S WORD! When we stray away from that, and allow others to define what we are supposed to do we become instruments of the enemy!
In the book of Matthew 25 the Lord declares concerning these times
“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matt 24:12”
Yes iniquity interpreted “lawlessness”. Just look what’s going on around us and we know the WORD of God is true. The Lord himself described these times. He is speaking specifically to Christians. You may ask how do I know? The word“AGAPE ” is only applied as relates to Christians...This is divine love! unconditional love! You may ask how can this happen? It happens when you get involved in a cause that’s counter to the LORD’S purpose. Like a square peg in around hole you try to make sense of all of this, but compromise after compromise leaves you frustrated dry and empty. Day by day you drift further away, down that rabbit hole you go, and you look around, and you find that many of your brothers and sisters in Christ or not following you. Then what happens? You become angry, and it becomes misdirected. The problem? You have read the BOOK but you failed to believe the BOOK. You’re “AGAPE” begins to “WAX COLD “... The devil hates the church and every believer that’s in it. The pressure to compromise every day is increasing. Those who refuse to cooperate? Intimidation and persecution becomes the order of the day. Now across our country we are seeing here and there, church services being disrupted by the angry mob (BLM-ANTIFA)and at night here and there, churches are being set ablaze. The angry mob (BLM-ANTIFA)is demanding we disband and defund our police. Unbelievably we see corrupt politicians mayors and city Councils trying to do exactly that. Liberation theology and secular humanistic reasoning have both brought us to this point. I would like to say that things will eventually get better, but the word of God disagrees.
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
Matthew 24:9-13 KJV
READ THE BOOK! READ THE BOOK! READ THE BOOK!
