We Don’t Do Politics, We Stand for Christ’s World View

God has to defeat Satan, and before the final battle God has chosen His people to shine the light, the truth of Christ, into darkness to expose evils true nature. In today’s America, Satan has successfully convinced many Christians and their clergy that they cannot speak, nor shine the light of Christ on immoral issues the world has re-identified as political issues. Satan in his craftiness is using social media, the press, governmental entities, higher education, and the radical socialist agenda in a scheme to persecute and silence Christians. This is to keep the biblical truth, from being seen or heard in the market place of ideas. Therefore, as Christians we don’t do politics, but we actively stand and speak the light of Christ’s world view into darkness!

One of the strangest phenomenon’s during my life time is the occurrence of people living in darkness telling the people of the light how they must think, what they can say, and how they can worship their God and Savior. Then the most unbelievable evil happens: Christians through their silence condone these evil views and ideologies by not speaking light into darkness. In Luke 1:79 NKJV as imitators of Christ we must, “…give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death…”  Then in Ephesians 5:11 NKJV, Paul explains, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” Exposing darkness is a command. We do this by speaking and standing for Christ’s biblical truth in the market place of mankind. Then Ephesians 5:13 NIV gives us the result, “But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.” Shinning the light in darkness gives light a chance to destroy sin by bringing the Spirit of Truth to mankind. Then Paul gives Christians their mission in Romans 2:19 NKJV when he writes, “we are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness…” It is obvious to be a guide to the blind we must possess the light, and shine Christ’s truth into the deeds of darkness. Therefore, to actively stand and support Christ’s World View we must put on the full armor of God to stand “…against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” [Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV].

Therefore, Christ’s worlds view is contrary to the evil deeds of public enterprises and authorities. These deeds God stands against are broadly identified as unbiblical marriage, abortion, lawlessness, sexual immorality, and the attack on Christians. Christ, also encourages us to stand and speak against the spiritual forces and powers that support godless ideologies that history proves turn into tyrannies like socialism and communism. These ideologies have been responsible for killing millions of people. They cannot tolerate the existence of Christ’s liberty.  Galatians 5:1- NKJV, encourages us to, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Then in James 2:12 – NKJV, is says, “…speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.”

Therefore, exposing evil is an obvious and necessary stance for all Christians. No true disciple of Christ can argue against standing and speaking Christ’s truth into darkness unless they babes of the Word, or are distorters of the faith. Therefore, when the church stands for Christ’s truth, this discourages duplicity within the church. Duplicity is when Christians say they honor Christ’s world view, but support people and views that stand against everything Christ’s world view exemplifies. [2 Corinthians 11:4 - Galatians 1:7 NKJV]

One way of instituting what Christianity stands for and against is by displaying a poster revealing “We do not do politics,” “We actively stand and support Christ’s World View!”  This enables the Church today to broadly identify mankind’s evil views that are opposing Christ’s views. The poster has the ability to empower everyone to see and understand their Lord and Savior’s stand against the evil views in the public world.
