Why American Pastors will not unify against Obama.  Here’s what would happen if they did.

By Mario Murillo

Every day someone asks me “Mario, we hear your message warning America but what can we do?”   Here is something so doable—it is a vexation of epic proportions that we do not do it.  You deserve to know why we will not do it.

We have 400,000 ministers in America who—if they spoke out as one voice—could reverse our moral landslide almost overnight.  Think of that!  We could end the insanity of the White House before the weekend.

Every Sunday they speak to the largest voting bloc in America: 40+ Million.  They have a captive audience.  They could do it—without even being political—just by being Biblical.

Half a million pulpits thundering truth at the same time would be the death of the secular progressive agenda.  Waking up the sleeping giant and arming them with truth would cut off the air supply of the God-haters.

There is too much at stake for me to try to save reputation and avoid controversy.  Let me say it plainly: It is time for a non-violent revolution; a firewall against the onslaught of evil.  This is the only way this nation will be spared.

Satan has done a number on our Christian colleges, seminaries and denominations. The enemy has sent a neutralizing counterfeit in the seeker model.  He has used fear to paralyze prophetic preaching.  He has used false doctrine to deceive many into immorality.  He has used seduction to create widespread compromise.

No way will I be like Elijah did in the cave.    I don’t believe I am the only one left—there are thousands of true men and women of God in our nation who are faithfully preaching the word and opposing the godless agenda.    However, there are not nearly enough and time is running out.

It is a hair-pulling irony that the greatest threat America has ever face is also the most curable threat.  So why won’t they unify against Obama?  Here are the reasons listed in order of importance.

american-flag-tattered

Fear of losing non-profit status. In the 1950’s, Lyndon Johnson caused the church to make a deal with the devil. The deal is known as the 501C3 designation.  Frustrated by pastors who were telling their people not to vote for him, Johnson introduced legislation that silenced the church.  In exchange for IRS status, churches agreed not to endorse political candidates.  The church did not need this designation because they were already tax exempt in the Constitution.

It makes no sense to say you fear losing your status.  Unless we speak out, churches will be illegal.  What use will your nonprofit status be to you when you are an underground church?

Lifestyle: 50% of all preachers who were polled said that if there was another way for them to make money they would leave the ministry. That means that for many preachers the ministry is just a paycheck.

If speaking out against Obama will cost them tithers, if standing for marriage and the unborn will offend some, they will not risk losing their lifestyle.

Racism: In a spirit-filled church, during the memorial to the Gospel legend Andrae Crouch—who did more than anyone before him to cross racial lines with Gospel music—Stevie Wonder said, “The only reason that people have rejected Obama’s policies of inclusion is because he is black.”

Not only was this breathtakingly inappropriate—think about what he is saying:  If you disagree with Obama you are racist—and that statement, my friend, is truly racist.

Ignorance of Scripture: Preachers today do not know the Bible. Many no longer believe it is the inspired Word of God.  They say nothing about hell, The Cross, The Blood or the Second Coming of Christ.  They get their sermons from motivational speakers and secular music lyrics.  They do not pray and search the scriptures.  They search for buzz words.

They cannot protect the flock of God from atheists and secular humanists because they have no ammunition from the Word of God.

Ignorance of America and revival: Many do not value revival because they do not know how God worked in our history. They do not understand that past moral awakenings have rescued the United States from certain doom.  Ignorance of revival is why they do not see it is life and death.

Apathy: Two extremes create apathy; one is self-sufficiency and the other is total discouragement. When ministers have too much or too little, they say, “What is the use in trying anymore?” One has given up because they don’t need the drama. The other has given up because they believe it is hopeless.

Even though the causes are totally opposite, the result is the same:  A nation dies because leaders cannot muster the necessary outrage to take appropriate action.

Competition: Many preachers do not see their fellow ministers as brothers in arms. They see them as competition.  They see them as predators of their people.  Wanting the biggest church has blinded them to the fact that we are all in the same army; that we are on the same side.  Some preachers actually relish the idea that their competitor is losing members and suffering loss.

Make no mistake.  I am not anti-church and I am especially not anti-pastor.  I am loyal to my fellow preachers.  I am committed to the local church…but we must unify and speak out.

Millions of American Christians need marching orders not another breathy chat about how special they are.   If you really believed they were special you would equip them for special ops!

So here is the bottom line:  If the guilty parties refuse to repent of all of these excuses— it will cost us the nation.

Yes we can wipe out the insanity of the White House in no time if we would stand together.  If we do not, we will be remembered as the worst preachers in American History.

Proof Verses:

“But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, ‘Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.’”- Acts 5:19, 20.

“A muddied spring or a polluted well— that’s what a righteous person is who compromises with the wicked.”  Proverbs 25:26

“That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”  John 17:21

“Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech.”  2 Corinthians 3: 12

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19,20

  1. WOW!! It’s time, NOW, to wake up, awaken to righteousness!!! We need a behavior transformation, a reformation, an awakening from our stupor and our state of stagnancy!! O God, please bring revival, pour out of Your Spirit!!!

  2. Praise God! “Somebody” that has a national platform is finally speaking what I’ve been saying for the past couple of years! Keep preaching, brother…keep preaching!

  3. It is up to us, the body of Crist to say this, not the preachers who fail us. They will not say these things because of the truth that you speak. Time to tell these preachers just where they have failed and why you are leaving. Then vote for God with your feet and walk out. Whip the dust off your shoes as you leave. When you talk politics to your friends tell them who you will and will not vote for and why or why not. Tell them the continued voting for the lesser of two evils is voting and participating in evil.

    1. Jesus said, “If you love Me, keep My commandments…” most people aren’t willing to do that. They have their own ideas of what God wants.

  4. As one of your prayer partners I agree with you 100%. My wife and I have wondered why the church of the living God has fallen asleep. It’s past time for the “ekklesia” or church to wake up. Jesus is the King of kings and we are His body the ekklesia. The Word says the prayers of a righteous man avails much. Start praying church to the Father in Jesus name and while you’re at it vote in godly people and get rid of the Islamic idiots of Obama.

  5. Absolutely spot on! I believe the common body of Christ believer, like myself, can forward this very sober & biblically logical wisdom to the churches within their communities and it can be heard. Our church leadership wants to hear from us. There is nothing greater than a response & nothing worse than a dead body providing no response.
    Forward this to our church leaders.

  7. I have been asking where is the church ? Why aren’t we hearing from the church ? They can tell you how to believe for a new car ,new house ,or how to send them some money … The pastors are happy with their life and life style they have become a custom to .God For give us all, visit us with holy fire once again .

  8. I have not heard a single sermon on the Kingdom of God for decades. Jesus spoke a great deal on this. I have not heard about repentance from sinful living that much either. Jesus’ first words in ministry were, “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand”. What is going on? Is this politically incorrect? Start with a seeker friendly church that has no true gospel, then find out you are stuck because the people with the money that keep things going that came first to this church will leave, looking for a place to soothe their conscience as they loose it. I hear a lot about grace and love, but what about repentance and being a member of the Kingdom of God? Repentance is turning away from sin, motivated to do so. The Kingdom of God is God becomes like a king to us. We are his loyal, respectful, obedient subjects, and for this we have the right to live in his realm, but only by the covenant he established, beginning with the grace of Jesus Christ given to all that call out for forgiveness and are willing to let God take control of their life. Let God be our God, it is that simple. If any other arrangement is thought out, then we are making up our own story what to do to live in heaven some day, but then, by default, we are not members of the Kingdom of God, we belong some where else. God will not have rebellious, sinful, disobedient, disrespectful, trouble makers, etc. in his kingdom, or the same troubles we have in this world will be there with us for ever. We need churches that start right and stay right, and if few go to it, then that is what we have to work with. God started with twelve men. We do not need a lot of people to get it right in the first place. If you are called, stand up and be counted for the Kingdom of God! Don’t back down. Like the prophets of old, God will make your heart like flint, and the power of God will be with you.

    1. Maybe you not in the church that Jesus died and gave His life for…Mathew 16:18, Jesus built His church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. We have been warned…Paul told Timothy in 2 Tim.4:3, for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their OWN desires, because they have itching ears,and will find teachers who will teach them what they want to hear.

  9. “As goes the church so goes the nation and as goes the pastors so goes the church.” Minutemen United -have been trying to light a fire under the pastors’ derriere for over a decade and a half. Please, stop being a cheerleader and start becoming a Minuteman ( or Woman). sonsoflibertymedia.com/2014/08/minutemen-united-protests-churches-calls-leaders-instruments-save-nation/#1uOLHfvV0rCmDeUG.01

  10. The answer to the 26 USC 501c3 is 26 USC 508c1A. Same “benefits”. Since “Church” is the entity listed in that part of the IRC, the IRS cannot attack them. I highly recommend forming a Pure Trust Organization to commercially (banking) operate through. The 508 is a claimed status, where the 501c3 is asking permission from Satan (IRS) to do Yahweh’s work.

  11. I have been speaking about that for years, even before Barrack Obama. I wrote an article years ago, published in the MRT, entitled “Where are the Christians”.

  12. Reblogged this on Redemption Apostolic Teaching and Apostolic Evangelism Training and Impartation and commented:

    1. Amen Bishop, why don’t you give the folks at Minutemen United http://www.mmunited.org a call – They have been at this for over 15 years. Stood with Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, took water to Terri Schiavo and most recently stood with thousands of others with Kim Davis. “as goes the church so goes the nation and as goes the pastors so goes the church”. Our mission is to wake the church up. Either make pastors see the light or feel the heat

  13. The true church does exist…If you truly seek God, He will lead you to it. We are willing to give up this government status if need be.

  14. I will hide mine eyes from you:yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear:your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord

    We must needs be to REPENT from our pagan history and take hold of the sincerity and Truth that YAHUWShua came to give us.

    And opposing the goddess adjenda!

    Is what i thought one of the earlier sentences said, or should at least include.

    The time of the gentiles is coming to a close. We must needs get back to the Root and worship Him In Spirit and In TRUTH with ALL Sincerity.

  15. This is good in so many ways.

    One thing that stood out to me was;

    2 Sunday’s ago, I had to be out & about with my job. I happened to be passing by a church while the parking lot was emptying from its attendees.

    I noticed this person all dressed up in their care leaving & their expression looked like they were carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. My heart went out to them. Yes I prayed for them afterwards a while until their was a silent hush (release) in my cab.

    I wondered afterwards if that person went to church desperately needing something from the Lord but left disappointed..?

  16. So many have been hushed by society by acting as if speaking the Word of God is offensive. While they go off speaking garbage that is offensive to our Lord, and therefore to those of us who are still trying to openly speak God’s message.

  17. I may get in trouble but I personally think we need an awaking of the word of God regardless of the of taxes and the president I’m sorry but we are still free act like it we are believers is Jesus as our Lord and Savior can no one understand he is in control were in the last days and read the back of the book we win NOT satan. The problem is no one wants to make the first move we can’t even get the church es togeather to do any thing and I blame denomination for that rules. mean more then right and wrong and the word of God.

  18. I read and mostly agreed with the article until I got to the very end. Try to think about this. The real problem is in proof verses. Exactly where did the idea come from that we can pull a verse out of context and claim that to be the Word of God? Preachers all over this nation do it every Sunday. I would like to submit to you that it isn’t the Word of God unless it is within context. A text without context is a pretext. The news media wouldn’t know how to present a story if they didn’t quote out of context.

  19. Th 501c3 designation is not needed today for a church to be considered tax exempt as it is already codified in the tax rules. All this designation does for a church is allow them to give donors a statement that can be used in their tax filings as a deduction. Are churches so afraid that people will stop tithing if they don’t get a piece of paper at the end of the year? People can still keep track of it on their own and put it in their returns. Society has become so numb to the specialness of the tithe that it is now readily equated to other “donations” and helped remove the spiritual nature of the form of worship that it is.

  20. I’ll tell you why the church leadership is silent. They are too busy writing books and selling DVD’s and to stand up would cost them so they are not willing to give it up. So the tow the line. Sad Where is the leadership? Where is the outrage? Come on people pray that God will pour out His spirit once more.

  21. We must come together, in agreement, shake off the emotionalism, worldly mindset, n cross the barriers that divide us. I pray all pastors come as one to fight for Godly principles, we need men n women with spine. Let’s launch out prayers across the land n make it happen. God won’t hinder your work, he’ll promote your effert.

  22. If church leadership is not willing to “pay the price,” I wonder what would happen in this country if ALL Believing Christians would enter into prayer… spiritual warfare over the apathy, deception, etc. and not stop praying until we see God’s hand breaking through. Isn’t it our responsibility and calling?

  23. if you want revival , !! Remember it begins with YOU , ,,,, its your heart that will change the world , your heart , return to your first love , repent ,and , believe , believe that Jesus Christ is who He says He is , don’t wait for some one else , YOU begin today , don’t wait for someone to show you the way , begin by building your relationship with God , there is no one between you , and Him , when Jesus died on the cross the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom , opening the way for each of us to come boldly before the throne of Grace , we don’t need anyone else , Jesus Christ is our high Priest . . Up until that time it was the high priest only that could enter into the Holy of Holies , once a year for the atonement of sins for the people , Jesus opened they way , with the new covenant . so that all who believe may enter , and no one will be refused , no one . Begin by talking to God , He will answer , you just need to practice listening to that voice , a conversation just as you would with a friend , back , and forth conversation , one on one, with the Creator , don’t let the enemy tell you you can’t ,because you can , its been the work of satan for hundreds of years to hide this fact, satan dreads the day you learn this . You will be surprised , God will never let you down ,

  24. AMEN!! WITH YOU!! OH, LORD RAISE UP MORE TRUE MEN/WOMEN OF VALOR LIKE EVANGELIST MURILLO. TIME THE CHURCH STEP UP AND SAY ENOUGH!! NO LONGER DO WE FEEL HIS HIS PRESENCE AND ANOINTING IN THE PREACHING, PRAYER..PRAISE AND WORSHIP TURNS OUT TO BE MORE CHOREOGRAPHED ..SET YOUR HOUSE ON FIRE WITH YOUR WORD, PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
