As the world led by the USA is heading to hell in a handbasket it seems as though the Christian/Messianic Community is arguing over what color the handbasket should be instead of getting out of it and showing some leadership and a backbone to a world that needs to see it and will follow it.
As I write the US Congress is debating the subject of making parts of the Bible illegal, a hate crime, because those sections of the Bible call out a minority of sinners for the sins they commit. If you make parts of the Bible illegal then you have made the whole book illegal. If some sinners can say the Bible singles them out for their sins what is to stop all sinners from doing the same. Thus sinners proclaim to the world that the Bible is a hate filled book deserving to be banned; and the doctrine of demons following Christian/Messianic Community seems all too in favor of such a labeling of HaShem's Holy Word. Let us paint over the offending passages of Leviticus and Romans, what color would you like secular sinning world? Shall we suggest pink?
As our brothers and sisters around the world risk their lives to read the Bible we in the West are willing to throw this basic human right away, because it offends a small minority of secular sinners. Do you want to be jailed for reading the Bible and then taking a Biblical stand on sin as believers in Europe and Canada can be and are?
If we don't take a stand and write to our representatives in the Congress our belief system will be outlawed here in the heart of liberty, a place where no one's belief system should be outlawed -- even the sinner's. The skids are greased and the handbasket is ready to be pushed, don't argue over its color -- just get out.
And remember, no matter what, the Bible is your Word from God leading you to Heaven. Read it everyday, legally or not. So what if the world hates you for it, as Yeshua said: "If the world hates you,understand that it hated me first, and that "In the world, you have tsuris. But be brave! I have conquered the world," Yochanan 15:18 and 16:33 (CJB).
Stand up and be counted with your Lord and His Holy Word.
