Christian men have become political pansies. Yes, that’s right, pansies. They’ve traded in their guns for triple shot, non-fat, soy, vanilla lattes and traded in their demand for honesty in government for excuses on how it’s not their responsibility and how God wouldn’t want them to object to their government anyways.
It always starts with using Romans 13 to weasel out of opposing anything the government does. “Wahh! We should be in submission to the government. Wahh!” Um, yeah, ok. We’ll come back to that. Ironically, these are typically the same people who decry the church’s inaction in 1936 Germany. Just try and transfer the responsibility for what happens in the country from yourself to someone else. Nothing new there for the fellas, we’ve been doing it since the Garden of Eden. Remember?
I like to blow up this refuge of cowards with a little laying of the scripture smackdown. James 4:17 anyone? Remember that whole, “whoever knows to do good and fails to do it is sinning” thing?
Let’s go back to Romans 13 shall we? Christian pansies usually like to back up their Romans 13 refuge of cowardice by invoking Daniel 2:21. “But, but, but… God sets up kings and it would be wrong to go against him. David wouldn’t oppose Saul, so I should just stand here on the sidelines and do nothing.” Yeah, ok, Skippy. Sounds just like Adam telling God, “The woman you gave me did it.”
Here’s an inconvenient truth for you non-fat, soy, latte males, in this country: We the People are the government. It says so right on the founding documents. Stick that in your morning pansy brew. Don’t use Daniel as an excuse for your powerlessness.
You know, a good man leaves an inheritance to his kids. The government currently is taking as much of what a man produces with his life as possible – including what he would pass on to his children. Go read that section of James again. Still think you should try and absolve yourself of responsibility?
Try this on for size: is it acceptable to you that your kids are subjected to searches at airports that would be criminal under any other circumstances? Don’t you have a responsibility to protect your kids?
Do you think it’s acceptable that the government can tell you what food you can eat, what health care you can get and what you can and can’t do in essentially every aspect of your life? Do you think it’s ok that the government tries to define you as a terrorist simply because you think abortion is murder? Do you think it’s ok that they want to use that as a reason to indefinitely detain you with no representation and no trial? I certainly don’t.
Our government is a government Of the People, By the People and For the People. Unless you’re not one of the People, the onus for responsibility lies directly on your shoulders. Time to pull up your granny panties, stop making excuses about how powerless you are (or wish you were), start reading, understanding and recognizing Constitutional government, fulfilling your duty to your God, your families and your country.
Time to shrug off the mantle of cowardice, drink a real coffee in the morning and make a difference in the lives of millions. Your kids are counting on you.
