Christians, Has War Been Declared Against Us?

Friends, I am a citizen of the United States of America and I love my country. However, much has changed in recent years and the very things our forefathers tried their best to prevent are coming to pass. You see, our country was built on a Judeo-Christian foundation, with a special emphasis given on upholding God’s Word, which includes showing reverence for our Creator.

Now let it be said, I do not hate the LGBT community and its supporters, but I also do not condone their actions. I believe all humans have worth and were made in the image of the Creator (Gen 1:27). However, lines need to be drawn between self-worth and sin. Furthermore, when someone stands against sin, they should not be ridiculed, mocked, and told their beliefs don’t count.

Over the past few days, many unjust actions have taken place against Christians in response to the 5-4 majority decision in the Supreme Count that declared gay marriage is to be recognized in all 50 states. Is this the beginning of a domestic war that is only going to get worse? I hope not, but it’s very much looking that way.

A Look at President Obama

After the Supreme Court ruling, in his speech addressing his feelings on same-sex marriage, Obama made it clear that he expected Christians, and other opponents of gay marriage, to reconsider their faith in exchange for a pro-homosexual point of view. One day later, he delivered a eulogy at the funeral of Clementa Pickney, who was a victim of the Charleston shooting. The very first words that came out of his mouth were, “Giving you all praise and honor to God.” Afterwards, he went on to talk about faith and the Holy Bible, with a special emphasis on faith as mentioned in Hebrews 11:1.

(A Message to Obama)

Buddy, you can’t play both sides of the fence. The very chapter you’re “preaching” warns us of the very thing you’re condoning. Are you so ignorant as to disregard the very chapter you’re “preaching” from? If we look at the faith chapter, which also contains the Faith Hall of Fame, we see something that should’ve caught your attention.

Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

It doesn’t matter how many times you sing “Amazing Grace” if you don’t believe the very thing you’re singing about. In closing, please take a look at the second stanza of this song:

T’was Grace that taught…
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear…
the hour I first believed.

(End Message)

Criticism of Christian Freedom of Speech

Not only is there a breakdown in our “leadership”, but the LGBT community and it’s supporters are trying to defend their beliefs by attempting to silence Christians. This includes the Supreme Court refusing to hear cases that demand Christians not be forced to honor homosexual requests because it violates their faith in God. In addition, the secular media has tried to silence Christians, and when this doesn’t happen we become ridiculed.

One such instance happened Saturday night after a UFC bout in which Yoel “Soldier of God” Romero defeated Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida. After knocking out Machida, Romero addressed the people of the United States in his victory speech, declaring that we should remember Jesus.

Attacks on Romero has been coming from all over the secular media. Why is this so? Is his freedom of speech not important? How about your freedom of speech? Do you see the moral decline that is happening?

The LGBT Community is Attempting War on Us

The agenda of the LGBT community has become very apparent. They are trying to destroy the Christian faith because it challenges their sin. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Let’s let one of their faithful speak on their behalf.

Please watch this video. This cat even smiles, at around the 1 minute mark, when he mentions a Christian being persecuted and tortured for his faith. However, he goes into more detail than that about how he expects the United States to respond to Christians.

How Should We Respond?

We need to respond with both truth and love. Remember, to put, and keep on, the full armor of God (Eph 6:11). This isn’t just a war that had been declared against Christians by man, but it is a war in the heavens as well. Remember, our weapons or warfare are mighty and able to take down enemy strongholds (2 Cor 10:4). Finally, remember that the battle belongs to the Lord, and therefore it cannot be lost. Remember, sometimes it’s necessary to be still so that the Lord can do His perfect work (2 Chron 20:17).

Final Thought

Soldiers of God, this is a call to attention. We need to realize that the very things we hold dear to us will come under attack if we don’t approach this situation with great wisdom. Sometimes God calls us to get physical (Psa 144:1), but I don’t believe this is a time for that. It is however, a time to press into the spiritual and fight this battle with truth and love. Let God guide your hearts my friends. Thank you for reading and God bless.

Do you think we are at war?  How do you think we should respond?

    So we have a group of people demanding our obedience and allegiance against God. What a sham this has gotten to be. What bigots these people are and what their new agenda is about. If anyone is desplaying hate and arrogance, it is anyone who is defying the King of kings and Lord of lords.
    Does this picture the same agenda that the devil is operating?
    Would like to send them all packing and moving out of our country to form their own ‘homeland’. Perhaps Obama would be willing to be their king for life in their new idealic counrty.
    If we have to go to prison as this man in the video speaks of, than they better start erecting them right now because they will need them to contain the multitudes. It would be a better alternative than bending the knee to their wants and wishes.

      Yes, the LGBT agenda is being revealed. We need to be prepared for what is coming. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

    Bro,
    Great article and I commend you for writing it and taking a stand.Remember Isaiah 59:19 “When the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of God will raise up a standard against Him’.We will not lose this battle bro God will have victory in this nation. I stand with you against this evil. So does the Lord Jesus Christ

    • Joel Bauer

      Thanks Greg. The truth needs to be put out there. Times are changing and the enemy is revealing his hand. Like the man in the video said, they want to establish a new system, remove God and the American flag, put us underground, and establish their own homeland. Doesn’t sound like anything close to equality to me. Keep fighting the fight bro. God bless.

    Let’s deal with some facts:

    FACT #1: The gay community is a very small minority within our country.

    FACT #2: Grown adult children raised by gay parents are now speaking out and saying that this kind of “family arrangement” does not work. They wished they had had a mom and a dad.

    FACT#3: The gays verbally attack and make death threats against their own people who have chosen to transition to a straight life.

    FACT #4: The gays have their own “bible” called the New Queen James Version, which changes the wording of passages dealing with homosexuality to bring it into conformity with their views.

    FACT #5: Gays call Christians names or make threats to burn down their buildings just because they don’t agree with them.

    The gay community needs to respond to numbers 2, 3, and 4, and 5. Answer the question “why” for each one.

    Our love and commitment to God is not going to change our way of thinking and behavior. Freedom of speech and of the will is what our God gave to us and no politician, president, judgement ruling, or the media should have a right to take it from us. It should mean more than what we have materially in this world.
    Sad that we had a poor judgement by 5 people who did not fully understand the ramifications of their actions and handed down their take on what love is suppose to look like for everybody.
    They opened a pandora box with this call.
    Do you notice that we see a militant personification with this group of individuals who are part of the gay rights agenda? It is almost as bad as the threats that we find with a nazi complex which threatens to do harm to anyone who won’t comply with their way of thinking. They speak of love and hate those who do not accept their ideals of their chosen lifestyle. That tells alot about their mindset and cpurpose to undermind everyone who is not in line with their ways.
    Wake up people and walk in the light so you can see the works of darkness clearly and not stumble.
    Take note of their slander and name calling. That is what will determine their true character and intentions for our future.
