Spiritual Revolution Does Not Mean Letting Political Parties and Religious Groups Do What Jesus Told You to Do

By Bill Wilson

Many social conservatives and conservative religious groups are extremely upset about the direction this nation is taking with regard to the sanctity of life and the marriage covenant. The current administration is the most radical in the history of America toward the expansion of abortion and the support of the homosexual agenda. Some have banned together in concert with certain leaders of the Republican Party to fight the administration on these particular issues. But It was the apathy and lack of discernment of Republicans and Christians that allowed the election of such immoral people. Now, when the elected leaders are doing exactly as they said they would, social conservatives are all of a sudden alarmed.

Now Christian organizations are trying to rally the church to stand against these homosexual and abortion liberalization policies. Well and good, except it seems too little too late. Mind you, I am as radically pro-life and pro-creation and pro-marriage as any among you, but for organizations to sit on the sidelines until the bad deed is done, then scream the loudest, is somewhat insincere to me. First, nobody should rely on the Republican Party do get anything done. The GOP has squished on moral issues so to bring moderates into the tent; it has helped in ending the free market system, and it has no statesmen. It is a one world order lion that wants its cubs to never open their eyes.

Second, many religious organizations appear to be using the current social crisis to scare people into giving money to "the cause" while at the same time trying to solve the problems through the same old alliances with the Republicans, who have proven to be inept and exploitive. A definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. While the forces of darkness are working tirelessly to destroy this country, Christian organizations are instructing Republicans to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking ship while the Republicans are working with the Democrats to sink the ship faster. We do not need political parties to change this country. We need a Spiritual Revolution.

The men of God, as their Founding Fathers before them, need to stand on God's principles and reestablish the righteous high ground. Jesus told us how to do this in Acts 1:8,
"But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
He instructed us to start at home and work outward from there. It's not about political parties. It's not about religious organizations using crisis to raise money. It's about you and me and Jesus. Let us break these yokes of bondage. Let us arise under the power of the Holy Spirit; let us express righteous anger; let us reclaim our nation, one nation under God.
