christian politics

The real political threat eludes some Christians, because they’re busy criticizing people in the government.

We want righteousness to rule in the government and remove immoral leaders. In so doing, some evangelical leaders banded with Catholics priests in being political. While there’s a valid concern, Christian leaders are called to share the Gospel – not to change the government. The government is God’s doing, He removes kings and establishes kings according to His plan. (Daniel 2:21)

The real threat is called “liberal politics” and its knocking at the door of our lawmakers. It’s really a spiritual war that we should “fight,” but the other way around.

1. Extreme Religious Tolerance

In some countries, the Bible is banned in schools and government offices. Diversity and tolerance have silenced believers. Recently, the Australia parliament wants to scrap “The Lord’s Prayer” as part of their century-old daily prayer because it’s unfair to other religions. Likewise, Democrats in the US have removed the oath, “In God we trust,” because it is no longer relevant.

For now, the Philippines is safe from “religious diversity” because more than 80% uphold the Bible. However, with the long history of religious extremism in Southeast Asia, the Islamic State is seeking to extend its presence in the country (CTC). Furthermore, the majority of lawmakers are either Catholics or Christians who continue to uphold Biblical morals. In the US, two Muslim lawmakers are openly attacking Christians.

→ Unbelievable and ridiculous Christian persecution by liberals.

Christian political activists

Religious extremist finds it hard to “convert” the nation because more than 80% are Catholics but church attendance is steadily been declining (SWS). Sexual abuse allegations and church involvement in politics are not helping. President Duterte spewed more hatred to Catholic leaders by calling God “stupid.” He is exasperated over the Catholic’s tirade.

Unfortunately, some evangelical leaders joined the bandwagon. For an unbeliever, they see this as “religion” up against the government, worst is a violation of the constitution that dictates separation of church and state affairs.

2. Divorce law & same-sex marriage

LGBTQ+ political power in the west is so strong that laws are passed to criminalize those who oppose homosexuality. “Gay education” is now taught forcibly in some schools and the “bathroom law” in place. Research shows there is sudden and rapid-onset gender dysphoria. Some Filipino parents raise gender-neutral kids without realizing its damaging consequence.

It all began when same-sex marriage was legalized, giving LGBT a stronghold in politics. The enemy wants to destroy every family and promote social chaos. Divorce result in broken families and children of broken homes are prone to drugs and porn addiction.

Falcis, Roman, Google, and Amazon

In 2018, the Supreme Court heard an argument on same-sex marriage. The case was filed by Jesus Falcis in 2015. Similarly, transgender Congresswoman Geraldine Roman wants to push for marriage equality bill (Bataan Representative). In 2019, a coalition of business interests that include Amazon and Google hopes to pressure lawmakers in the US to abandon legislations that undermine traditional marriage and pro-life stand of Christians. These brands may eventually be a strong voice in the Philippines who may influence politicians as well. (Life Site)

3. Legal abortion

About 7.6 Million babies have been killed through abortion and the government funds health programs by Planned Parenthood to promote women’s choice, feminism and the #metoo movement which has become political. Regulations are on their way to educate young girls in school about abortion. Recently, some US states passed a law that allows the abortion of full-term babies, which is actually infanticide.

A western ideology preparing to invade

The Philippines is a member of the United Nations. They are promoting population control in the country. Similarly, abortion as a basic human right for this “western organization.” Consequently, the UN is a form of ideological colonization,” says Obianuju Ekeocha, International pro-life speaker. In other words, the UN may influence the government to support abortion in the country as well. This is a global political fight Filipinos should prepare.

United Nations Committee

Abortion is criminalized under Articles 256, 258 and 259 of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines. In 2016, the U.N. ESCR Committee urged the Philippine government to legalize abortion to support women’s right. (UN Human Rights)

Why the Gospel is the answer

In Europe and America, atheism is the norm and Christians have become a minority. In the Philippines, less than 5% are Believers. What do you think will happen if government leaders, down to all its employees becomes a true follower of Christ? Therefore instead of wasting time criticizing leaders, trust God that He is in FULL control. Fight the political enemy by sharing the Gospel.
