    The eye of the storm, where it is peaceful and quiet?

  2. Will says:

    The youth go for Christian rock concerts in churches but will that hold them?

    In the path of the storm?”

  4. American Christianity’s devolution is merely a continuation of what finds its roots in the 17th and 18th centuries.

    What was Christendom (Christians dominionizing society) in 17th-century Colonial America has tragically devolved into culturally impotent 4-walled Christianity, aka Christendumb.

    The bulk of today’s Christians are best depicted by Christi in Matthew 5:13 as salt that’s lost its savor, good for nothing but to be trampled under the foot of man. This officially began in 1787 when the late 18th-century Christians allowed a cadre of Enlightenment and Masonic theistic rationalists to replace the 17th-century Colonial governments of, by, and for God for their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people, all but relegating Christians to their stain-glassed buildings.

    Are these so called “Nominal Christians” and “Evangelical Christians” really followers of Christ ?

    Do they stand up for and promote Christ, His Kingdom/Will on earth ?

    Or should they be better described as this: ” … but if the salt become tasteless, how will it be made salty again ? It is GOOD FOR NOTHING ANYMORE, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” (Matthew 5: 13) ????

    Both have become tasteless salt.

    Is it not the “Fundamentalist Christians”, “New Testament Only Christians”, “Evangelical”, etc., that teach the lie that God’ Laws, Statutes and Judgments have been done away with, “contrary to us”, etc., etc. (when Christ Himself said the exact opposite: Matthew 5: 17-19), the ones that have lost their saltiness ??

    “Unless they speak to the Law and the testimonies, there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8: 20.

    This nation has become “twice the sons of hell” as those who have proselytized it.

    We allowed the process to begin when we decided “We The People” should be god (sovereign) and decide what is to be the supreme law of the land.

    The legislative process provided by the various federal and state constitutions was the vehicle used by the enemy to corrupt over time (via gradual increments) and finally take over. Now, the state is the god of most, knowingly or unknowingly, and the “god” the state is controlled by His and our enemies.

    This nation wanted to determine what was “good and evil” (remember the garden?), instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.

    Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines, or legislates, it to be evil).

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. Seek Him while He may yet be found.

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] system) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    He told us that if His people ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    Interesting responses, but I fear they miss the point of the article. While Christ’s message has always been counter-cultural, in this country especially, we have been living under the illusion that Christians has been a majority and form the mores of our culture. And in fact, for at least the last several decades many have worked to adjust the Christian world view to what the culture around us is demanding.
    As we begin to realize that we ae a minority we will hopefully lose our arrogance, stop demanding our way and instead share in humility, peace and love the “good news” that God loves us and is calling those who will listen back to Him. And as in Roman times, we will likely be ridiculed, and persecuted, as some strange sect, but our message can become real again.

    Devout Christians are not in the midst of the storm. They are the storm. That is why people resist their message. Christ does not compromise and those who have picked up their crosses to follow Him have already given up the world and therefore threaten its illusion of power.
