The Resistance in the Face of Abominations

What resistance do we have? Look how the world enlightens us that, “Real Christians should be tolerant in diversity supporting the freedoms of selfish ambitions over righteousness.” What is our response? No. We will not give in! Jesus said in Luke 16:15, “For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.” God said in Isaiah 55:8, “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” God-given wisdom shows us in Proverb 15:9, “The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But He loves him who follows righteousness,” and Proverb 15:26 says, “The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD, But the words of the pure are pleasant.” The truth is that, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good” (Psa. 14:1, 53:1).

We will not recognize so-called “women’s rights” to dismember the unborn, accept free education to teach our children your ape ancestry, welcome speculations of natural origins without our Creator, or redefine the Creator’s institution of marriage to include perverted unions. We will not release our own children to make personal choices with their bodies or give up the age of consent to feed your hunger. We will not be so kind or compromising to honor and volunteer hours of service to “mother earth”, bear with parades of sexuality being a “freedom of expression”, or recognize one’s “identity” by one’s sexual lusts and behavior. There is no way that we will consent that only educated elites know what’s best for our families. Our faith will not be politely silent because the words of Jesus are offensive to evil. We will not give up our free exercise to proclaim that there is one God. We will not overlook the hypocrisy of judging others for judging. No matter how much power or how many threats you bring, we will always resist. The more you oppose us, then the more others will join us.

We oppose these corruptions of the world and never stand on the middle ground of indifference. Our resistance is our survival, and by Christ, we will overcome the world. We will stand with one mind and one voice. We will rely on the words of Jesus Christ and let not petty differences hinder us. Either you are with Christ or you are against Him. There is no middle ground between two opposing armies for not one in between will survive. Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad” (Matt. 12:30). Let us continue to stand with one voice and tell the world, “You may abuse us, and still we will go on.” We will resist all evil with good. You may hate, slander, revile, and strike us down, and yet you’ll never have our lives, our love, our Christ. We will resist and not be moved. We will pull down your walls, and cast down every high thing that exalts itself against God. We will take all captive to obedience to Him, who is love. Everyday is the day that the Church of Christ declares in one voice: “Yea, though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil!”
