Be Encouraged and Be Courageous!

Justice Antonin Scalia said it well, "Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt the sophisticated world."

The unexpected passing of Justice Antonin Scalia sent a surge of both mourning and concerning thoughts throughout our country. Who would replace him? How would this influence the already rampant judicial activism of the Supreme Court?

Swiftly, we prayed and witnessed God's assistance as our friend, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, rose to the occasion to stop anything from occurring in the election year. We thank God for Senator Grassley.

This entire scenario reminds us how important it remains for us to stay courageously Christian and conservative. We need less government and more Christian outreach.

Think about this: When the government attempts to replace the church through red-tape mazes and socialistic policies, the society suffers a steep moral decline in which policies police families. As today's broken families will attest, no substitute exists for moral absolutes. We are to love God and neighbor...without government red tape. Government red tape cannot even be compared to the saving red blood of Jesus Christ. When people live out His love, boundless opportunities abound for the poorest of the poor and the most challenged of the challenged.

In what feels like a complicated maze of political lies and cultural deception, we must focus on Truth. It's simple: Everyone sins. And everyone needs Jesus. Turn to Jesus Christ. He died in our place and rose again for us. Will you accept or reject His love and offer of salvation? We all need Jesus. Please accept Him and be saved from sin, death, and hell. Repent from sin. Receive God's Son. Take God's Word for it: "'Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other...'" (Isaiah 45:22)

God's Answer to our sin problem remains the Answer for America. Yes, our country is in deep trouble. But no candidate alone has the power to fix our country's moral decay. That is up to "we the people" and our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Be wise and never compromise on God's Truth. Pray that people will choose to repent and come to Him. Think about it: Changed hearts would equal a changed and better country.

Biblical illiteracy among too many churchgoers and Americans in general explains why our country continues to sink into a spiritual downward spiral. We encourage you to read about it in this month's featured article by Dr. Albert Mohler. We all need to learn more about the Bible and the wonders and majesty of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

The bottom line is to earnestly pray and seek the Lord and get involved in ways to help turn our country around. (Check out our Action Page for ideas or read our book Unite the USA: Discover the ABCs of Patriotism.)

Don't lose heart, for "with God all things are possible"!
