Rabbi Daniel Lapin, an orthodox Jewish rabbi, has written an excellent piece about the threat against Christianity in the USA.
It is a piece that I think everyone who calls hemself Christian should read. The rabbi says:
“The war is against those who regard the Bible to be God’s revelation to humanity and the Ten Commandments to be His set of rules for all time. Phase one in this war is to make Christianity, well, sort of socially unacceptable. Something only foolish, poor and ugly people could turn to.“
Against the backdrop of the article I reviewed yesterday, he seems to be spot-on. It is time for Christians to be seriously introspective on this topic. The average church-goer seems content to watch the weekly sermon while sipping his latte, and leave feeling good about him or herself.
I have not heard too many pastors in mainstream churches speak out against what we are facing, either they don’t know, or they are content to preach prosperity and leave their congregations oblivious to the fact that there is a real war going on.
Atheists, communists and Muslims are battling a common enemy. That enemy is God, and His followers. This is not a surprise to Christians, throughout the millenia many enemies have come and gone.
I want to encourage everyone who reads this article by Rabbi Lapin to send it to as many people as they can. The message is relevant and may serve as a wake-up call.
