This week I had a friend share with me that their preacher delivered a fantastic sermon on reaching the lost. Then at the end, as if to add a exclamation point he said, “And for those of you who are always asking me to address our governmental issues, this is why I will not.”
Wow…I was surprised as was my friend. The gospel weaves it’s golden thread throughout every fabric of our lives. However, I believe Jesus was definitely involved in politics. Not only did he constantly rebuke the Pharisees and the Sanhedrin, the local politicians of that day, but he gave a mandate for us to be the light of the world in all areas. Is abortion political? Was slavery political? While Americans preached the gospel for 400 years, it wasn’t until we got involved in politics that helped slavery come to an end.
I’ve got an idea for all of us. Why don’t we get our Pastors the book, “40 Days Toward a more Godly nation” as a Christmas gift. He’ll hear the truth about our Founding Fathers and just what the Lord expects of us.
Author and speaker Neil Mammen is coming back to Kansas! We will you keep you updated as we get the details of where he will be speaking. He is the author of two great books, 40 Days To A More Godly Nation, and Jesus Is Involved In Politics.
40 Days Towards a More Godly Nationwill articulate in detail how Christians have changed the World politically and for the betterment of all mankind; and in doing so, been the greatest founder of Missions in the History of the World. It will explain how we are to apply the Second Greatest Commandment in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
The Southeast Kansas Conservative group has already set up a group to go through this series to educate themselves. Let’s follow in their example and set up a group of your own with your family, bible study or Sunday school.
We have elections coming up next year in Kansas and it’s not too soon or too late to pray about running for your local school board, city council or to be a Representative in the Kansas Legislature.
Please pray about it, …how can we take back this nation, if we don’t start first with our families, schools and churches?
