A Political Pause For Resurrection Day
by Matthew Jones

It is always a good time to talk politics.....well, almost always.
The Passover season which culminates in the most holy of holidays, Resurrection Day, is a time to set aside politics and ponder the gravity of the ultimate sacrifice made for all of us by Christ Jesus, the son of the living God. This time of year brings a fresh opportunity to reach out with the gospel of life.

It was for the sin of all people that Jesus went to the cross. As foreseen hundreds of years earlier by the Prophet Isaiah, Jesus’ death on the cross atoned for the sins of man and gave us all the opportunity to be “right with God”; “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed”, (Isaiah 53:5).

Just as a godless man is doomed to die (spiritually and physically), a godless nation is also doomed to suffer the same fate. Sadly, America has fallen from its Christian roots to become an immoral shell of its former self.

The freedom our country was founded upon was a direct result of the freedom that all Christians experience. As time has passed, from generation to generation, our freedoms have been slowly eroding. This slide towards totalitarianism has mirrored America’s slide away from our Christian heritage.

The more we slide from Christian ideals to the new religion of secular humanism, the more we suffer attacks on our personal freedoms. Without the moral compass that guides most Christians, society loses its way. When the society loses its way, the society (and all members) loses the ability to self-govern.

When that ability is gone, the government steps in to take the place of God. America has now reached this point.

All seems bleak, but there is hope. Just as an individual can turn to Jesus Christ and be redeemed, our America can again turn to the Lord and be resurrected. “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

As a people, we must turn our eyes back upon God. If we do, we can change America’s course back to that which our founding fathers first placed us. America can again be the beacon of freedom it once was. We can return to our roots. We can again be rugged, God-fearing individualists (instead of soft government dependents); we can again be self-governed (instead of being state-governed); we can again be free, spiritually, physically, and financially (instead of being owned by our government). We can again live in an America where the God-given rights of all people are not claimed by the government...if we will all turn back to the God which we have spurned for so many years.
