By a wide margin last week, Missouri voters added what is being called [the prayer amendment] to the state constitution. The reason why it is being called the prayer amendment is on account of it [guaranteeing] the right of citizens to make public expressions of their faith, which includes praying. Another part of the amendment gives students the right to opt-out of classroom activities that conflict with their religious beliefs.
Oh yeah, liberals from all over are lining up to [challenge] the constitutionality of the amendment. For we can’t be having prayer vigils being held in the hallways of our public schools while serious scientific learning should be taking place!
Alas, it is indeed a sad situation, but not for the reason that the more devoutly religious want to believe. For no man-made law can prevent anyone from praying in the way that our Heavenly Father most wants to hear. Neither can any amount of teaching on any subject lead any child too far away from Him.
Therefore, what are all of these “good Christians” really trying to accomplish? Is it not that they are really wanting to protect the right to show anyone around just how pious they are?
No, what they are doing is most certainly not for our Heavenly Father’s glory. In fact, they are doing more to diminish it than anything else. For if you listen close enough, you will hear them (in effect) declaring that He needs them to be witnesses by praying out loud in public so that the lost can be saved, as well as (in effect) declaring that what He actually says is absolutely true cannot stand against the lies of the devil being presented as scientific fact.
Now, there would be great cause for concern if it all really did come down to His servants making a stand against evil. For there has been a shadow across the land since the Garden of Eden, and it has been getting steadily darker with each passing day.
Oh, but what far too many (even in the Christian community) refuse to truly believe is that nothing has ever happened that wasn’t in accordance to our Heavenly Father’s will, and that He has always been with each and every one of us (even those who do not want to acknowledge His existence) every step of the way.
No, this is not to say that everyone will eventually be saved from facing eternal damnation. For it would not fulfill our Heavenly Father’s purposes to force anyone to have to spend all of eternity with Him in His Kingdom of Heaven as an heir to all that is His in glory against their will.
In any event, be assured that the Lord God Almighty does not need anyone to do anything for Him. In fact, He delights in taking a personal interest in every aspect of our daily lives in this world, and come Judgment Day, no one will be able to honestly say that they did not fully understand everything that He wanted them to because He will make sure of it Himself.
Tragically, that is not something that far too many in the Christian community want to hear—is it? For they want to believe that He is depending upon them to finish the work in His absence that was started on the cross at Calvary. For if He is not, what glory can there really be for them?
Yes, much of that sounds awfully harsh. I am sorry, but the time has come for such. For He has been making it abundantly clear for quite some time now that there is much about what has been presented in His name as being the truth that is quite contrary to what He actually says is absolutely true, and He has provided His Holy Scriptures as written confirmation of that. Yet, the hardness of far too many hearts remains exceedingly great.
If you don’t believe it, please ask Him about it yourself. Ah, but who is so deaf as the one who does not want to hear?
