Church, Be the Church!

Browsing Fox News, I found these quote to be extremely disturbing.  I expect the world to be worldly, but I expect those who say they support Scripture to support Scripture.  You're killin' me!!!! 

A Policy Change on Abortion, But How Radical?

(March 9, 2010) "Abortion opponent Rev. Derrick Harkins, pastor of the Nineteenth St. Baptist Church in Washington, said he believes it ultimately could hurt the anti-abortion cause if the health care bill collapses because of the divisive issue.
     "'You can't be blanket pro-life and not address those things that encourage women to make the choice of having an abortion,' said Harkins, a board member of World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals. 'If you are really looking to reduce the number of abortions in America, one of the things that will make that happen is to have comprehensive health care coverage.'"

That's so sick.  Mr. Harkins, since when did you sell out to socialized medicine?  Evangelicalism is not enough.  You've got to realize that the church has got to be the church.  This is a divisive issue because there's issues of right and wrong at stake.  Satan hates it when we take a stand, and that's why he's working on us so we'll give in.  Get a backbone!

How firmly are you against abortion if the slightest opposition makes you step down?

Same-Sex Couples Begin Saying "I Do" in Washington

(March 9, 2010) "The Bible supported polygamy. A man could have many wives," Rabbi Arthur Blecher of Temple Beth Chai said. "Religious institutions have changed the concept of marriage over time, and the biblical precedent does not apply. Nobody in America is supporting polygamy."

If the Biblical precedent doesn't apply here, it doesn't apply anywhere.  C'mon -- how can you say that the Bible support polygamy?  I remember a Christian on campus telling me that once.  Biblical marriage -- the kind of marriage God describes -- is the uniting of one man to one woman.  End of story.

Folks, read Romans 1.  We're trying to erradicate the presence and the knowledge of God.  C'mon, church, be the church!!!  It's time that we wake up before it's too late!!  Don't be afraid.  God is the one we're uniting with!!  He knows the truth, and His Son Jesus -- not us -- is the champion!!!!  We're not fighting this battle alone!!!  God is fighting it, and we're just joining Him!!!!!
