The Simple Truth: Government is about to kill America. Only the Gospel will save America.
By Mario Murillo
The Body of Christ is to have a unique influence on America. From the jump, our founding fathers realized that morality and love of truth would breathe life into the Constitution. They believed in liberty not license, they believed in freedom not anarchy. They understood that the system of government they created must work in concert with God fearing, hardworking, freedom loving citizens.
The church refuses to face a simple truth today. That is why we are powerless if the face of our ongoing national destruction. We must face the fact that government is about to kill America and only the Gospel will save America. First, let’s face the truth about government.
Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
The leftists believe they are the only ones who care about poverty, racism and injustice. Secular progressives will say they love the poor. If so, then they loved Detroit to death. After 61 years and nearly a trillion dollars Detroit has—by liberal policies—been reduced to a pile of rubble. The same damage can be seen in any urban area where these programs dominate.
Obama and his ilk are applying the Detroit formula to all of America and the results are undeniable. The nation is poorer and heroin addiction had jumped 50% in just two years. Worse yet, Hillary has vowed to continue these death-inducing policies.
Leftist ideology is attractive to three kinds of people:
- Those who do not want to work.
- Those who want to gain power by posing as champions for the poor.
- Those who feel self-loathing and guilt for their ancestor’s sins.
Social progressives will accuse me of blaming the victim. I am not blaming the victim—I am naming the villain. Secular progressives will say they love the poor. If so, then they loved Detroit to death. After 61 years and nearly a trillion dollars Detroit has—by liberal policies—been reduced to a pile of rubble.
The church should be a great force for saving America but we have been neutralized. Obama and the media changed the rules about how Christians and government relate. On the one hand, Obama made it fashionable to bash the church, the Bible and Israel. On the other hand, he made it wrong for the church to speak out—directly attacking our freedom to preach the Gospel.
Obama’s tactics made the church feel hateful by opposing him. Many famous pastors let him slide because they did not want to appear racist. Still others feared the IRS would remove their tax free status. Now we know we were wrong to be silent.
Paul did not shrink from calling out evil government. Acts 16: 37 “But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.” 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.”
I believe that evil politicians should fear us. Paul did not believe that his gospel integrity would be ruined by speaking out. Nor do I believe that my out spoken opposition to liberals is in anyway is inconsistent with love or truth. For that matter, Christ did not worry that turning over tables and evicting the money changers would ruin His image of love and compassion.
However, our silence had another root in our decreased faith in the Gospel. We have forgotten its surpassing power. We do not remember how effective it is in situations just like this. We have forgotten that it is supernatural.
If we embrace the simple truth that government is a crippling counterfeit of the Gospel. And if we let God explode a fresh passion for this—greatest of all messages. We will roar it without apology. Should we have a bold and fire national declaration of Christ? I shudder to think what would happen if we didn’t!
As God’s people we must quit showing tolerance for policies that are destroying America even as we shake off any and all embarrassment of the Gospel. Yes, there have been abuses but I remember what Woodrow Wilson said, “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.”
After nearly 50 years of preaching I have concluded that there are three skills every believer must have. I have come to believe that we can turn America around if we fill the churches with believers who possess these 3 skills. That is how we forged this new weapon…a weapon that took nearly half a century to create.
It is called The Warriors Workshop…a workshop I will teach myself. Be careful not to stumble over the simplicity of these 3 skills. I have spent a lifetime narrowing them down.
At the Warriors Worship you will be trained to own 3 skills:
How to convert someone to Christ.
How to heal the sick.
How to live in victory.
I warned you about their simplicity…but they are anything but simple. Their power reminds me of something Winston Churchill once said, “He who enjoys it wields a power more durable than a great king. He is an independent force in the world. Abandoned by his party, betrayed by his friends, stripped of his offices, whoever can command this power is still formidable.”
