Charlotte, NC — We are in the middle of an absolute mess. Now I am sure that I did not tell you anything that you did not already know. Our nation is in absolute chaos. Our leaders tell us that it’s perfectly acceptable for groups to engage in destruction to get their way. Those around us say we should be given anything that we want, whether we deserve it or not. We are told that we should be all accepting and get along with everyone.
Except that’s not anything close to the truth of how the world actually works. Nothing that comes along in this life is free. Nothing comes from acting like a group of children, setting fire to buildings, killing those around you, and looting in the name of equality. Perhaps my opening sentence was wrong because that seems to be exactly how this world and this nation works.
Which should not be surprising to anyone that is a Christian. As we read and study Scripture, we are told that the world is going to continue to get worse and worse. We do not have to look any further than our own nation to see that happening right before our eyes.
It seems the majority in our nation believe that killing children in the name of convenience is acceptable. The majority seems to believe that homosexuality or other “alternative lifestyles” should be accepted without question. We are even told that if we were being like Jesus, we would be accepting of those lifestyles and the arguments of equality.
But I would argue that this is simply not the case. It seems that we have some type of idea that Jesus was a soft person, that was willing to accept any sin, by simply saying that is “just how you are.” It is true that we are all sinners and not one single person is perfect. But nothing in Scripture gives us the idea that Jesus would be accepting of sin.
In fact, the suggestion of this is nothing more than another argument of the radical left attempting to drive a wedge in society between Christians and non-Christians. They want everyone to believe that if you are not all-accepting of any sin, decision, lifestyle, etc., then you are not a true Christian and are not worthy to exist in society.
Now I certainly believe that there are Christians out there who hold ideas that are not scripturally founded. The idea that one color of the skin is better than another would certainly never be scripturally founded. Imagine the heartbreak of these Christians when they realize that Jesus Christ himself was from the Middle East and is certainly not a man with white skin as many images depict him. But that does not mean that the majority of Christians are evil as the radical left has claimed.
The truth, I believe, is that we have a nation that needs a lot more Jesus. Not just the Jesus of Christmas, Easter, or any specific other holidays. We are a nation that seems to be stuck with Jesus in a manger, Jesus on a cross, or the idea of Jesus as an all-accepting person of love.
That same Jesus, who the left wants to argue is all about love and would never hurt anyone, described in Matthew 13 hell itself. He taught about the torment of that place and how horrible of a place it really is. That does not sound like someone who is all-accepting as the radical left would claim. That gives me the understanding that there are some things that Jesus Chris is not accepting of. Specifically, sin.
There’s also the radical idea that Jesus would not fight for what he believed in. Christians are constantly told that we should sit silent and not share our opinions of pro-life, pro-family, pro-God, etc. But that’s certainly not the example that is set out before us in Scripture. It’s filled with examples of those who fought for what they believed in, against wicked governments and leaders.
That’s certainly not saying that the Scripture is advocating for violence in the United States right now, nor is it saying that I am advocating for an insurrection against the US government. I’m simply sharing the truth of what is in the Scripture. While pro-life, pro-God, pro-family topics are important to advocate for, we are missing the most important thing.
We can fight against those around us for all the things we believe in, but we are fighting with those who are nonbelievers or misled believers in most instances. How can we expect a nonbeliever to understand the importance of God, family, and life? How can we expect a nonbeliever to understand that the ultimate goal of Christianity is peace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, not the radical idea of Christ’s all-accepting love?
Jesus Christ does love with an all-accepting love that surpasses all understanding of this world. He loves everyone and invites everyone to accept him into their lives. He does not, however, love the sin that plagues our nation. That’s the part that the radical left misses and that’s the part that Christians seem to overlook entirely.
If we want a nation that fights for and stands for the Judeo-Christian values that we were founded on, we must once again find Jesus in our nation. Not the Jesus of acceptance of sin and love of sin. That’s the idea that got us in trouble in the first place. No, we must find the Jesus that gave his life in a violent death for the sins of the world so that those who choose to believe in him can walk away from those lives of sin.
There is no doubt in my mind that a return by Christians to sharing Jesus and a focus on bringing our nation back to a belief in God would turn our nation around. But it cannot be the radical left’s concept of Jesus. For our nation to turn away from the wickedness of the radical left, we must reject the radical left’s concept of Jesus and get back to the real thing.
