Ministers of the Gospel are not speaking out as much as I’ve been used to hearing. I honestly feel that many have felt the sting of corruption that has been prevalent in the land and now perhaps fear has struck their hearts. But, of course there are blatant cries from another group of ministers who feel at some point there just might be benefits if the election results are ruled in their favor! Biblically, I warn this group of select political ministers who won’t consider the scriptures and the disposition for their leading people astray.  Are we not to be centered in Christ and call wrong as sin no matter where we find it – in the White House or Congress? We can’t go along for the sake of getting along. There is a spiritual decision to be made.

However, the Bible tells us not to become entangled in worldly affairs… and we should not be entangled, but then again it tells us as ministers to stand on the wall – cry loud and spare not… and to warn the people as to their transgressions… and that means ‘all the people’ which should include the leadership in Washington DC, and the Congress of these not-so-United States who have stood up strong with the garments of unfairness and out-right in-your-face racism. These often are the persons who fill the pews on Sunday Morning services in pretense of worship.

I have lived past the promised years, but I never thought I would see our nation try to revert back to the yesterdays where the KKK and other biased groups sought to destroy another body of people. Now many of those same hatred groups are dressed in pin stripe attire while seeking to set the premise of this nation for a precious few.  This country was built for all the many races of people – and not merely for a self-serving body who talks out of both sides of the mouth… especially on Mondays after giving God thanks on Sundays.

Ministers, who read and believe the word of God, just ought to consider living that which is preached. If we really preached diligently against the evils of the world – would God not hear and answer our prayers? After all, the prayers of the righteous avail much! Or do we believe man rather than God?

Evil has become a way-of-life by many, and ministers of the gospel have a spiritual duty to ‘Preach the Hell’ out of those persons who are contrary to the teachings of He who made us – for we did not make ourselves! And, we should remember that we are living in God’s house, His courts, and we should enter into His gates with thanksgiving. This world is not about us, it is simply God’s planet and we must be careful how we treat it – which includes treating one-another.  Remember: The very least you do unto God’s little ones; you are doing it unto God, as stated by the real land-lord of the world!
