These analysts are compensated to write, talk and politicize American politics and as one writer states “it is ad nauseum.” “The media has been complaining once again about religious folks, for injecting religion into political races,” states Dr. Alan Sears of Alliance Defending Freedom. We could gather from this statement that the liberal and bias media have an elitist philosophy to talk down Christians in America.
The Media Desires to Frighten Christians
In the 2012 Presidential election, the mass-media accused Christians of everything from racism, disrespect for the laws of the land, hate for the U.S. Constitution, and ignorance. Christians are depicted as being locked in the “stone age.” The media conjures up frightful visions of Christians as Bible thumpers and mindless “Jesus followers.” We know this to be false and not the true picture of Christianity. Christians are from every walk of life, every state of the union, on the factory floor, behind the college podium, in the armed services, farming the fields, delivering the mail, in the halls of Congress, and, yes, even in the public media. God stated in Hebrews 3: “exhort one another daily….for we are made partakers of Christ…” Hebrews 4…”he (the Christian) also hath ceased from his own works (occupation) as God did from His.” So, therefore, Christians, DO NOT EVER BE FRIGHTENED BY THE ELITIST. We belong to the Savior, Jesus Christ!
The Media Desires to intimidate Christians
Christian men and women involving themselves in the political realm appears to “unnerve” the news media. They do not understand Christianity, so therefore, they resort to negative and bias information, most of which are lies and falsifications. Christians, DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED. We have the right to actively participate in politics. We can and should take a major role in promoting and helping to elect Godly leaders in our government. We have a place in the process. We simply must be Christ-like. As Christians, we must engage in Christ-like attitudes and actions. Never use unsavory secular means in order to succeed in politics. “Character assassination” is unacceptable.
The Media Desires to Dismiss Us
The media attempts to dismiss Christians because of their ignorance of our dedication to our Savior, mankind and to biblical principles. We, however, give them a strong impression by our conduct. We must be kind; vocal but not obnoxious. They can observe our daily lives, our relationships, our convictions for morality. Stand tall for Morals. Joshua declares, “ only be thou strong and very courageous…” DO NOT LET THEM DISMISS US!
The Media Wishes For You Not to Participate
Here is a great and spiritual battle plan: Put on the whole armor of God, pray as II Chronicles 7:14 declares and let the Holy Spirit lead you in moral and political decisions. Christians should offer themselves as candidates for elected public offices, local, state, and national. Christian voters should cast votes for born-again, moral candidates. We should pray for Christian men and women in the public arena that they will have a Godly influence.
Christians can be a powerful force for the good of America. Get involved! PARTICIPATE!
