Subject: Freedoms Voice

Until the final ballot of the 2016 presidential election is cast, we will be bombarded with political rhetoric and empty promises. As the candidates endeavor to sway the voters through their power of oral communication, I wonder about the many words that exit the mouths of not only ambitious politicians but the number of words each of us utter every day. Studies estimate that men speak approximately between 7,000 to 10,000 words daily, with women estimated at 20,000 to 24,000 words. (No comments, please!)

Obviously, we know that words can be utilized for both good and bad. Politicians are quite skilled at crafting words that pledge change, greatness, fairness, equality, national security, but their words lead nowhere, and once the election has passed, their words will evaporate like the morning dew.

There is a voice, however, whose words not only promise change, and equality but also guarantees peace, salvation and eternal security! Words that lead to Jesus! These words are communicated by thousands of voices making-up one voice…the Voice of Christianity! Regrettably, this united voice falls, too often, on deaf ears since the populace prefers to listen to man rather than God! The words, for example, from various so-called ‘Christian’ denominations are horribly misleading because they lend credence to political correctness, while encouraging man to live according to his will, not God’s! By carefully fashioning words that water-down biblical teachings, and by adding to and subtracting from God’s Word (Proverbs 30:5-6), people are swallowing many untruths!! In fact, such religious manipulation is a modern day version of Satan’s scheming words presented to Eve in the Garden (Genesis 3:1-7). Both Adam and Eve partook of Satan’s lies and half-lies by dismissing God’s words in favor of a counterfeit, self-serving version of truth!

Certainly, every person has the freedom to accept whatever words they desire. After all, we live in a nation that permits freedom of both religion and speech, and these two freedoms blend wonderfully…… UNLESS you are a born-again believer! Regrettably, our words are subject to unfair selectivity, and our aforementioned freedoms are on a slippery slope!

Just look around! When we born-again believers express our convictions against homosexuality, we are considered prejudiced. When conveying our abhorrence toward abortion we are deemed judgmental. When truthfully pointing out religious heresies, we are declared biased and narrow-minded. When the voices of genuine Christianity declare there is a Living God, teach the infallibility of the Bible, and proclaim Jesus’ love as revealed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, people become riled, angry, infuriated!

When true believers stand firm on their Christian beliefs, they face growing bias. Remember the Colorado couple that refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage, or the couple in Indiana who also refused to bake the same type of cake, claiming that to do so was a ‘commitment to sin’. Then there was a Portland, Oregon bakery ordered to pay a couple $135,000 in damages for refusing to make a similar cake. Astonishingly our nation - once ‘under God’ - granted victories to those who rebelled against the Lord!

It seems that even certain “Christian” words incite hostility! In 2013, NBC’s singing competition “The Voice” deliberately omitted the words “Lord’, ‘Savior’ and ‘Heaven” from a well-known gospel song entitled “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?”. The reason given for these omissions is as follows. “It was a way of not wanting to offend anyone from the religious connotations”. If those three words offend, is it any wonder unbelievers detest the truthful words that inform of God’s love, mercy and grace (Psalms 103:8/Romans 5:8/John 3:16); refuse to accept the strong words that speak of sin and judgment (Romans 3:23/Revelations 20:11-15), and consider the cautionary words about Hell and the Lake of Fire sheer fiction? (Revelations 20:15/Mark 9:43-48/Revelation 20:14)

We live in a rotting culture. Crosses removed, nativities banned, marriage corrupted, sexual morality belittled, life aborted, Christian values ignored. What’s next - censorship? This is a strong probability since our society’s concept of tolerance and open-mindedness swings but one way… away from genuine Christianity and its followers! Does this inequality bother and frustrate, yes! But most importantly, it terrifies, for as our country grows increasingly hostile toward those who make-up the Voice of Christianity, lost souls continue to enter into an eternity of torment! So as long as both Freedoms stand for every individual, we, the unified Voice of Christianity, will step-up our efforts to spread the Word of God in an all-out assault to bridge the gap between sinners and Jesus Christ! As we do so, the following 10 powerful words should be included in our daily output of words! “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13)
