Acts 24:5-26 should be read. Paul was accused. "For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes..." Then in his defense, he states in v13-14 , "Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and the prophets." Verse 16 "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men."
We have entered a strange and dangerous time in America. Though we are in the majority in our opinions about abortion, Prayer and the Bible in School, the display of the Ten Commandments, the sanctity of the Biblical family and a vast array of other subjects, we are expected to yield our consciences and convictions to the wishes of the few. Del Stone Jr. calls us "Idiots", "Bible Police" ,and relates that he is "SOOOO happy the Sword of the Lord folks are looking out for my welfare. It's like living under the kind, benevolent and nurturing arm of ...the Taliban." I defend Mr. Stone's right to free speech, but I defend my right to freedom of conscience and freedom of speech as well, and that seems to be a bother to the minority. We are not going away and we are not going to shut up. What people need to know is that we are not going to roll over and play dead while they rape the minds, bodies and souls of our youth and teach them there is no God and no right and no wrong. It is no surprise that the liberal agenda for years has been to sanitize our land of all Spiritual authority.
Their agenda has been: Get the Bible out of school. Get Prayer out of school. Get Biblical discipline out of school. Get "In God we trust" off the currency. Get "One Nation Under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance. Get the Ten Commandments out of the halls of justice. Block the appointment of Supreme Court judges who properly interpret and defend the Constitution. Rewrite the Christian history of America. Why is all this taking place? It is because the controversy is with God and His Word, not with His people. Jesus said in John 15:18-19, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."
