Christians fighting the government

You either love or hate President Duterte but is he the real threat that’s facing the nation? Christians I know are divided on the issue and a growing number of believers have expressed disgust over the government’s behavior. A few Christian leaders have also banded with Catholics priests in recent years and turn political. As a result, it has caused division and extremely bad testimony. Question is, should Christians oppose the government?

The real political threat of every Filipino home

1. Extreme Religious Tolerance

The Bible is banned in most western schools. They don’t want to offend other religions, therefore, diversity and tolerance are preached to young minds. For example, Christian baker Jack Philips who refused services to a gay couple was sued because of religious tolerance. Christian persecution is now happening in the USA.

2. SOGIE Bill & Same-Sex Marriage

LGBTQ+ political power in the USA and Canada is so strong that laws are passed to criminalize those against them. “Gay education” is now taught forcibly in some schools. The SOGIE Bill and Same-sex marriage products of a dangerous liberal society.

3. Legal Abortion

About 7.6 million babies have been killed through abortion in the USA through the infamous Planned Parenthood. In the USA, leftist and liberal democrat states like California and New York support young school girls who want an abortion, without parent’s consent. Recently, San Francisco banned 22 states because it is pro-life. Some US states passed a law that allows infanticide.

Don’t get caught in Satan’s smokescreen

Satan has many smokescreens so he can blind even Pastors and church leaders. Christians are called to share the Gospel – NOT to be political or change the government. The government is God’s doing, He removes kings and establishes kings according to His plan (Daniel 2:21). God places Christians in the government who we should support, but politicking is a bad move.

Why the Gospel is the only solution

In Europe and America, atheism is the norm and Christians have become a minority. 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, pray, and fight the political enemy by sharing the Gospel. Atheism is growing. Use your social media to promote the Gospel by becoming an online missionary.
