As true believers in the Lord Jesus and the word of God, we must rightly divide the word of truth (2Tim. 2:15). Before that it says, Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.We need to study the word so we know what it really says.
During this Covid-19 time, our governor here in NM has complete government control of our lives. It is called communism. Communism takes away our religious freedom and makes the state god. So many so-called Christians are being deceived, siding with government officials over the kingdom of God.
Seek God’s kingdom first (Matt. 6:33) and God’s ways of doing things. So many talk about Romans 13:1–7 and really have no idea what it means. So, allow me to give you a thought. We are to obey the authorities as long as it doesn’t conflict with the word of God. Their mandates have told us we can’t have church, then we can as long as we don’t pray (chant), sing, and worship our God the way the Bible teaches us to. And what is the response of way too many again so-called Christians? They attack the church because of safety reasons. It is really sad to watch. No governor or government has the right to ever tell us how or when to have church. Fear is a motivator, but not a good one. And the politics that are being played with this are absolutely ridiculous.
It’s the church that the gates of hell will not prevail against. So, the church must be the light, keep its doors open, and honor God over evil, rich, reprobate people who are being used to destroy everything we hold dear, especially our religious freedom and our civil liberties.
Whose side are you on? That is the question only you can answer.
Just a thought,
