YOU MUST SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE

This is the clearest warning God has ever given me. God is emphatically telling the American Church, “Speak now, or forever hold your peace.” Whatever we are going to say, whatever we are going to do, whatever action we are going to take to protect our rights as Christians and Americans, we must do now.

Doubt my words at your own peril. Churches are about be closed forever. People of faith will soon be marginalized, both socially and economically.  What we are talking about here is nothing short of your children’s and your grandchildren’s future. They will live in a world where they will be targeted for the faith you have given them. And the worst part is: you will not be here to protect them when they endure the worst of it.

Listen closely—the threat I am describing is not years away, it is not even months away, it is days away. Yes, absolutely, we are days away from the new excuse the Democrats are preparing to use to wipe out both the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.

Here is what has happened to justify the urgency of my writing. Satan has been working on this masterstroke of tyranny for years. The tapestry of lies he has woven is the greatest manipulation of truth in all of history. It transforms light into darkness, and darkness into light. It changes hatred into love, and love into hatred. It makes racism equality and equality racism.  They have left few, if any, words that carry their original meanings.

The web of evil that has fallen over all of America is clearly described in Isaiah 59:4-8:

“No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed, a viper breaks out.

Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”

That passage describes exactly what is happening, from our lowest back alleys, to our highest offices of power.

And the following verses (14-15) tell us what is coming next.

“Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”

The moment when you will make yourself a prey for Marxist wolves, is even now at the door.

I am sick to death with those who refuse to call the church to action. Let me put it plainly. You have two choices: either vote for Trump, or make a plan to move your family to safety. I am also sick of those pastors who refuse to come to this obvious conclusion.

When you hear them screaming, “Mario Murillo is an extremist!” remember that we got to this point of desperation because of the lukewarm voices who refused to admit the approach of danger.

-Remember when California told us not to use our Bibles? Pastors did not galvanize a resistance to stop it.

-Remember when marriage was destroyed? Again, there was no national firewall of righteous leaders to intervene.

-Then they told us to close our churches, even as they condoned mass protests that led to violence and helped spread the virus. Again, there was no unanimous action from American church leaders.

-Then they told us that we cannot sing. This was a test balloon to see how fast they can force the church underground.

So, what is next? Will they extend the church-gathering-ban indefinitely? Will they move on to dictating not only when we can meet, when we can sing, but will they also dictate what we can say? Will we finally find ourselves ordered to read a script that will be, in effect, a repudiation of our faith in Christ?

Remember, we are here because of an incurably wrong-headed sense of political correctness. Well, my brothers and sisters, that season is over. The gloves must come off. The righteous must rise up with a single roar—a noise that is unified and unending must rise from the church.

For years we have been told to just sit back and let it happen. We were told that it was ‘all in God’s hands,’ even as we ignored God’s Words. God has chosen to honor prayer. God rewards those who seek to stand in the gap against national evil. Borrowing one last verse from Isaiah, which tells us our great predicament: “Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (Isaiah 59:15,16). God is shocked, and rightly so, that the American church is still wandering, wavering and weakening in the face of an invading enemy.

And yet, there is great hope because God’s army is rising and its numbers are growing at this very hour. Notable Christian leaders are no longer worried about protecting their reputations, but are taking up a new anointing—a nation-saving anointing!

With every atom of my being, I am exhorting you to take action. To those who have no stomach for war, and are oblivious of the fact that we are already at war, please spare me your empty excuses.

The American church must rise up now. We are about to be bound and gagged by a rogue government. Whatever confidence you have in my ministry—whatever level of trust I have earned—must now be put on the line.

Join us in this great struggle! Join a cause so noble and right that it is beyond belief that every Christian in America is not involved. This is the hour. You will never pass this way again.

Speak now, church, or forever hold your peace!

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
Thank you for listening and get your War Chest Collection today. Turn your summer read into equipping, encouragement, and fire! We are all going to come out of this mightier than ever!   -Mario Murillo Ministries

The War Chest Collection: three powerful books by Mario Murillo for only $27. This amazing offer includes free shipping and a signed copy of Vessels of Fire and Glory. The war chest is an army’s first order for victory. The doors will soon open for tent crusades and we must replenish our war chest. This is a true win-win situation. Not only will you get three excellent books for only $27 but your money will go toward winning souls.

  3. Many are still seeking to be comfortable. That is our greatest “sin”. Thus G-D is pushing us into being uncomfortable. Some will assimilate while many will unify as a body of believers. It will separate the sheep from the goats.

    Just remember that millions have not bowed their knee to Ba’al.

    1. It’s GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit. The Blessed Trinity. They comfort us in the controversy and chaos as we stand for the truth.

  4. May the Lord make a show of His [our] enemies OPENLY! I only wish that none of them were Christians but, sadly, that is not the case. We are to love our lives not, even unto death, for the cause of Christ. Where is that in the American church today? Thank the Lord for you, Mario, and those who are sounding the alarm. May God hear from heaven, and heal our land. Amen

  5. every Wednesday morning, 6am est, where ever you may be: PRAY without ceasing, all around this world PRAY…thank you HOLY SPIRIT IS MOVING!
    AMEN

  6. So the question is how one can join you in this other than buying the books which we already have.

    1. Yes, what else can we do other than pray? Praying is great, but if we are to stand united in one voice, what do we do with that voice? I am hoping to make it to DC for The Return (I think that’s what it’s called) with Jonathan Cahn. I’m not sure that contacting our “representatives” does much good, since they (many) are hell-bent on cowtowing to the left’s dictates! What can we, as a body do with our frustration over what is happening to this country, and our zeal to see the hand of God move on behalf of America?
      I know the first thing we need to do is to repent! How many of us have wrong heart attitudes? Hatred for those who oppose our ideology? What about lust of the eyes? Lust of the flesh? Pride of life? There are many who look at others as beneath us because they disagree with us! I get on social media and am astounded and appalled by what I’m reading from those who call themselves ‘Christian’ as they attack!
      As I have been quarantined, I have had some incredible experiences with the Lord and in searching my heart, found myself on my face before the Lord, having to repent of wrong attitudes! We tend to castigate others whose sins are apparent, but Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart man speaks.” He knows our hearts. There is nothing hidden from Him! We all quote 2 Chr 7:14, but do we really internalize it? I am praying that we will all – everyone on the face of the earth – be brought back to the Fear of the Lord! He is indeed an awesome God, and fearing Him is the beginning of wisdom. So, He laid out a plan for us: humble, seek, repent (turn). THEN He will act. Then we can stand in the gap for our nation and the lost, and He will hear us! 🙏🏼🙌🏼❤️

      1. Actually, this is to all who are asking *what*?

        Do not fail to speak out and give an answer. There are a lot of church goers that have a highly negative view of the President, buying in to lies, innuendo and corruption.

        For me, I have been given Proverbs 6:16-19 and those 7 abominations, the chief of which is the intentional shedding of innocent blood (we are not talking collateral damage during time of war) through abortion.

        But, there is also bearing false witness under oath.

        Do not let then forget which party champions abortion for any and every reason.

        Do not let them forget which party cursed Jehovah at their national convention.

        Do not let them forget which party wants to and has actively pursued the removal of both the right and ability for self-defense. Even Jesus said Two Sword were enough. And, I suppose we can debate whether He intended it merely as a deterrence or not. 🙂

        Speak up on your knees by all means. But, we have more than enough proof that a large number of church goers do *NOT* listen to The Spirit of Our Living God, so also speak Out from your mouth, as much as your employment and personal safety will allow.

      2. RS, I agree the first thing we can and must do is repent and pray. Pray without ceasing for ALL involved. I believe we are seeing signs of a stirring of God’s Spirit and depending on how we (the church) respond will determine our future.

        I’m old enough to remember when there were blue dog democrats. And I can’t believe they’ve ceased to exist…may have been forced into silence…we can pray for those within these rogue organizations who are there because of fear…that works on both sides.

        FaceBook, WordPress, and the new social media group … can’t remember the name but it begins with a “Parler,” maybe… are wonderful places to express to others what you’ve expressed here. It’s obvious you have an ability to write…that’s a talent given by God…use it. Use it to write letters to your congress people, your local officials, your fellow church members who are hiding…encourage them to hold fast to Jesus. Jesus tells us that where two or three are gathered together in His name, He’s there. Call a few friends who are just as concerned about our nation as you are and suggest you all meet together for prayer each week or as often as you can. That does two things…brings you all together in a common bond seeking the Lord, pleading for your country and your church and those lost and hell bound. Second, it partially fulfills the command to “not forsake the gathering of yourselves together…” In these uncertain times we need to be an encourager and we must all be encouraged…”and even more as we see the time drawing near.”

        Maybe there’s a special ministry you could be involved in. I’m a GriefShare facilitator and we’re still meeting. I’m sure there will be parents struggling with children at home if schools don’t soon start. If you have the ability to help local families…maybe just listening to and encouraging children of your friends to read or listen to them read and reaffirm your faith in Christ to them. And if these suggestions don’t apply to you, ask God what He wants you to do…but take my word for it, don’t ask if you don’t plan to listen and obey.

  7. Thank you for your blogs. Your words are very enlightening and unfortunately not being preached in any churches we have been to.

    Other than praying and fasting what can my wife and I do to help bring this country back to God? We believe strongly in your ministry and support you financially. We live a long way from where you are located but want to be part of what you are doing. Please tell us how we can help.

    God bless you and your family.

  8. Mario is so right on about the condition of our country and the American church today! Christian leaders and their flock’s need to pray, repent, vote for Trump and godly politicians and speak up before we lose it all. Don’t bury your head in the sand and ignore current events, Pastor’s, you see what’s happening now do something, let all God’s people rise up. I believe God wants us to stand up for good and defeat evil and not be silent anymore!

  9. Just want to let you know that because of your emails a bunch of lady friends are getting together twice a week to pray. Most of us raised our kids together in the same church years ago and went our separate ways to different churches. Now God brought us back together to pray, pray, pray!

  10. IF you haven’t seen this, I encourage you to google….www.nommeraadio.ee/meedia/pdf/RRS/Rockefeller%20Foundation.pdf. Praying for your ministry.

  11. Thank you Mario Morrillo. God bless you. My heart aches for America.
    When will believers stand as one and go into the streets and say enough is enough. Time to stand for the truth of the word of God. I find it hard to understand the body of Christ.

  12. Enough is enough, and Jesus is MORE than enough! Thank you Abba Father for exposing the darkness with your Marvelous Light, delivering us from the dominion of darkness and transferring us into the Kingdom of Your Beloved Son, and drawing closer and comforting, helping, strengthening, gifting, anointing, equipping, edifying, exhorting, pruning dead branches so America, President Trump and Americans can come into full bloom with the ripe fruit of Christ, the fruit of Light, the fruit of the Spirit and the fruit of the Tree of Life so we can save and heal the nations, deliver from evil, and set free to Love God and love one another! To God be the thanks, honor, praise, worship, glory, majesty, blessing, dominion, power and authority, now and forever and ever, Amen. Hallelujah!

  13. I know people who basically unplug for the news and continue their lives as “normally” as possible in these days. They don’t vote, even though they are Christians. I do not know how aware they are of how dire the situation really is. I supposed they think it will all blow over and things will go back to, “normal”. They won’t. And it will be a rude awakening when those people, who should know better, are confronted on the actual deterioration of our country, society, culture, safety, and loss of freedoms. If Biden gets in, they will now know how it happened or what hit them. They’ll find themselves watching America slide into the One World Government/socialism, and wonder how it happened. I hope I do not hear any whining coming from them, about, “how could this happen?”.

  14. I’m a writer and blogger and use every opportunity to warn, encourage, and repeat “Stand firm and occupy until I come.” Jesus is coming soon, now is the time to come to the Cross and trust Him for cleansing and salvation.

    Living in the Dallas area I am fortunate to attend FBCD and have teachers and a pastor who have long been speaking truth boldly and often. Mario is so right, if we don’t stand and speak now we will be accountable before God for our negligence.

    Like the church in California this past weekend…that quadrupled, our church has had over 22,000 decisions to follow our Lord Jesus Christ since the pandemic began…and we’ve been back holding services since the beginning of June. This is not the time to cower. “The Lord is our Refuge and our strength. A very present help in time of trouble. Of whom should I be afraid?”

  15. May we all stand in our own cities + fight praying, prophesying, declaring Gods Truth + supporting President Trump financially, spiritually, + of course by our votes.🇺🇸🇺🇸 God Bless you Mario + Mechele, + God Bless America 🙏

  16. God gave Adam and Eve a Commandment to keep. They didn’t, an instead of seeking first God’s Kingdom, they ‘sought’ Satan’s kingdom through disobedience and disbelief. Obedience and belief brings blessings and the accomplishment of God’s will, disobedience and disbelief brings God’ curse and the accomplishment of Satan’s will. Deut 28.

    Why did the Israelites end up in Babylon? They had brought false gods into the temple and were worshipping idols and violating God’s commandments. Why is America in a mess? Again, God’s people fell into disbelief, broke God’s laws by focusing on the wrong things, mammon, their own houses, and didn’t steward and take care of God’s House. The proof is in the pudding. Our behaviour has not matched up with what Jesus asked us to do. Lk 12:42-49

    We left the ‘door open’ and allowed Satan to invade whether through the sin of commission or omission.

    Gen 4:7 “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”

    We failed to steward and take care of what God had given us, His Temple, our temple, and His House the nation of America. We did an Esau, and gave away our Blessing and birthright by selling it for a ‘pottage of lentils’. Christians sold their birthright for mammon, creature and worldly comforts and riches. No one was on the watchtower, and incrementally Satan scaled the city walls and took over America like a parasite invading its host.

    We can’t even blame Satan. Satan does what Satan does best. What about God’s children? It was Adam and Eve who disobeyed God and let the devil in. They opened the front door when their Father said not to.

    Who’s at fault here, Satan or God’s children? God’s children. The Israelites were scolded and chastised and suffered for their faithlessness. How about Christians, if we use the same standard and historical understanding we judge the Israelites by, then how have Christians been faring in today’s world.

    Firstly, Christianity became divided forming many schisms after Jesus had prayed for his followers to be one. Jn 17:20-23.

    Secondly, immorality hit America like a plague, a greater pandemic than Covid-19, causing far more ‘death and destruction’ than any virus has.

    Thirdly, did we love one another and the least of these, and have we been seeking first God’s Kingdom or just our own?

    Christianity became compromised, worshipping mammon and seeking signs and wonders where Jesus said ‘an evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign’. Jesus did not come to perform miracles, he came to build God’s Kingdom on earth because Adam and Eve failed to do so. Signs and wonders are all around us in the natural world that God had already given us. What greater miracle is there besides Creation? Rom 1:20

    God wants to see strong God centred families who know God and live in the love of God and the give and take of love amongst family members. That is the significance of the ‘Two Great Commandments’. Love God, love your neighbour, I don’t see ‘love miracles’ being one of the Two Great Commandments.

    Those families then naturally form a society, nation and world occupying the ‘Seven Mountains’ of culture.

    Do we need to be entertained like the Roman mob. In the meantime Satan has invaded the people, churches, the economy, media, government, academia, the arts, every aspect of culture has been stung like fruit being stung by wasps.

    Satan has encircled us and we are crying about how bad Satan is, yet we did our very best to let him in, aiding and abetting the enemy through ignorance, stupidity and even deliberately. Christians at the end of the day are still fallen people having received grace from God, which like a ‘talent’ has to be invested, and like a seed planted into fertile soil so that it can grow and prosper.

    We embraced Babylon, and now we must repent and return to our ‘Jerusalem’ and re-build God’s Temple, the nation God prepared, not just for America but for all humanity, to ultimately receive the Lord of The Second Advent. We have to begin with repentance, understanding our sin, otherwise our salvation is for nought if we have violated the gift of grace God gave to us :

    Heb 10:26 “For if we wilfully persist in sin after having received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has violated the law of Moses dies without mercy “on the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 29 How much worse punishment do you think will be deserved by those who have spurned the Son of God, profaned the blood of the covenant by which they were sanctified, and outraged the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know the one who said, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.

    Spiritual salvation is not full and complete salvation, we still have to walk in God’s laws and statutes building a substantial Kingdom/House in preparation for the Messiah awaiting redemption of our physical bodies.

    Rom 8: 19 “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; 20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies”.

    Lk 12:49 “I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled”!

    Meaning that the people should be prepared and ready to receive Christ’s teachings. If we are living outside God’s laws, then how can we receive Christ as the Israelites discovered? How many recognised Jesus out of a whole nation?

    So if we did not take care of God’s House, allowing immorality and corruption to invade the land, are we qualified or prepared enough to receive Christ at his Second Coming.

    Will a traveller go to lodgings that he knows provides very poor service, may even steal his luggage, and perhaps try to kill him. Well then, why would he come to America?

    Are Christians ready to welcome Christ? No, because Jesus will struggle to see the difference between non-believers and believers. As written in:

    Luke 18: 8″I tell you, he will vindicate them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, ‘will he find faith on earth’?” The right belief and practice and therefore ‘result’.

    God needs a nation to accomplish His Will, not a few believers lost inside a Satanic culture, otherwise Christ may as well return to China. The Christians there are more faithful.

    That is why God needs a ‘sheep nation’ not a ‘goat nation’, but America is fast becoming a ‘goat nation’. It’s ‘turning’, maybe that is why we have so many Zombie movies coming out now as the world is ‘turning’ into zombies. They have the ‘name of being alive but are in fact dead’.

    ‘You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear’.

    Christians must repent, unite, come together and seek first God’s Kingdom, as the Kingdom of God is in the midst of us, in our relationship with God and each other. Again the ‘Two Great Commandments’.

    Lk 17:20 “Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is ‘not coming with signs to be observed’; 21 nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”

    Mt 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

    If we do not unite as Jesus prayed and commanded us, then Satan will take us and our nation. If you don’t care about your life, care about your children and grandchildren and everyone else’s.

    On the foundation of that unity, everyone must vote for President Trump in order for Christianity and Christians to survive, and not be literally ‘railroaded’ into hell. Things can and probably will get a lot worse than they are now.

    It is in our unity that we will survive, as a ‘House divided can not stand’. Unite with God’s Commandments and with each other!

    To be the ultimate ‘sheep nation’, the ‘government must be upon the shoulders’ of those who believe, and who are keeping God’s Commandments.

  17. Stephen has a desire to attack miracles signs and wonders for some strange reason. Attacking and down playing the force of the Great Commission in Mark 16 with signs following the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. When we preach the Kingdom of God the church is built. We do not build God’s Kingdom. God’s Kingdom builds Believers who fight the good fight of faith.

  18. “It is now time to determine whether we are worthy of divine interference; whether we would accept the high boon now held out to us by heaven—that if we would, though it might lead us through a sea of blood, that we are to remember that the same God whose power divided the Red Sea for the deliverance of Israel, still reigns in all his glory, unchanged and unchangeable—is still the enemy of the oppressor, is still the friend of the oppressed.” – Patrick Henry

  19. No time left to wait and see if things are going to get better, we are truly living in the days where they are saying “that good is bad and bad is good” people are literally giving into the lies and deception of the enemy. How much discernment does the church need today to see the world is prepared to accept the mark of the beast. God help us . God bless.

  20. I think a big part of the problem is rapture theology, it gets worse, Jesus is that much closer to coming, well that and the wrong way of looking at God’s sovereignty, God’s in control, pray like we are commanded and see what the results are. No Kingdom theology, just take me away to a better place theology…

    1. I agree James! If the church is too focused on escape it isn’t focused on the call.

      One Scripture that was a slap in the face is

      1Co 10:13  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 

      Everyone usually stops reading at that last comma, and entirely misses that the “hope” is there to give us strength to endure and overcome.

      The Amplified Bible says it this way:

      1Co 10:13 For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

      As a former Navy man I see it as that Bell on SEAL beach. You’ve probably heard how excruciating BUDS is where young men are put to the test in way the rest of us can only imagine in nightmares.

      But, that bell is there all a man has to do to get a hot shower, a hot meal and a comfortable bed is to ring that bell. No recriminations. But, they will never ever be a SEAL they will never ever be an “Operator”. The bell is there to give them hope that should they not measure up in won’t result in death.

  21. We were told to “OCCUPY”’til He comes. Yet the church has for the most part been disengaged and retreated behind 4 walls, satisfied to keep the pews and the coffee pots filled. Meanwhile, the enemy has come in like a flood… and WE failed to be the Standard bearers that God needed to “raise up a standard against him”. And for fear of not being Politically correct or ‘rocking the boat’, political responsibility has been abandoned.. leaving the church uninformed and unprepared to deal with what we now are facing. Is there still hope? A shameful 20 % of Christians have not even been voting!!

  22.
