Christians Need to Get Angry
by David J. Stewart
John 2:16-17, “And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.”
The average professed Christian lives in a bubble, being woefully ignorant of what's really going on in the world. There are so many Christians these days who live in their own little circle of friends and family, and are as cattle being led to slaughter. Most people just don't care.
In John chapter 2:13-17 we find our Lord tossing over tables, throwing money on the ground, lashing the culprits with a whip and expressing His anger that God's house had been turned into a business instead. Whereas everyone else didn't seem to care, Jesus took action and did something.
Most believers these days are indifferent concerning the evils of the New World Order, caring not that America has been taken over by Communists. I am saddened at the apathetic attitude so many believers have towards wickedness. If Christians don't take a stand for God, then who will? If not us, who? If not now, when? If not here, where?
I saw an advertisement recently from a Christian website that sells greeting cards in bookstores, which read: “Our Vision: connecting people with the heart of God through messages of hope and encouragement every day, everywhere.” What a lame vision! Their vision ought to be to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The love of money is the root of all evil, which causes so many believers to dip-their-sails and compromise concerning the truth. Go into any Christian bookstore and all you'll see is positive, encouraging and non-offensive items. That's not reality.
Can you imagine going into a Christian bookstore and reading a big sign that says... “You're going to Hell if you don't get saved!” Most if not all of the book titles you'll find in a religious bookstore are non-offensive mumbo-jumbo.
It is tragic that most believers are afraid to say it as it is. God speaks the truth in His Word without apology. The Bible is brutally honest. Many people have a hard time with the content of the Old Testament, because it harsh at times. But the world is harsh, and you'll find quickly outside of the U.S. how few rights you have elsewhere. The problem is our warped American culture where we think everyone has rights without corresponding responsibilities.
Christians need to get angry as Jesus did and start fighting the good fight of faith as the Bible commands (1st Timothy 6:12). Every believer should fervently defend the Doctrine of Christ (2nd John 1:9). Every believer should contend for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). Every believer should expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11). God wants His children to rise up against the evildoers and stand up against the workers of iniquity (Psalm 94:16). Instead of Standing On The Promises, most believers are Sitting On The Premises!
Getting angry means caring! Getting angry means not going along to get along! Getting angry means speaking the truth without apology! Oh, how Christians need to get angry today over the wickedness in our society; over the indoctrination of our children with the lies of evolution, over the smut and filth on TV, over the multitude of broken campaign promises by President Barack Obama, over the evils of Communism which turn men into cowards and slaves and make the government god, over the sensual filth of MTV and CMT, over the theft of trillions-of-dollars of taxpayer money, over the open borders which have ruined our nation's sovereignty, over the blatant takeover of our government by criminals, over the sicko smut and blasphemy from Hollywood, over the evils of booze, over the vile homosexual agenda which has forced sexual immorality on society, over the taking of God's name in vain in nearly every Hollywood movie, over the exploitation of our youth as paid mercenaries in the military to kill the innocent and steal other men's wealth, over the lewd and immoral messages propagated by contemporary music, over the Satanic Catholic religion which leads people into the fires of Hell, over the corrupting of the Bible by homosexuals on the New International Version translating committee, over evil pastors teaching that the King James Bible is not inspired, over the crooked bankers and insurance companies that prey upon their victims, and over deadbeat preachers who don't have any guts to preach the truth!!!
It's time to get MAD (Make A Difference)!
Unchristlike Christians hate conflict more than they hate evil.
Souls Are Dying!
Ye Must Be Born Again!
You Need HIS Righteousness!
