I listened to a radio program today. The host of the program, Brannon Howse, articulated what I have believed for quite some time.
I will let the following quote from the show and from Mr. Howse echo the thoughts I have had:
“So many people have, again and again, wanted to find their hope in the Republican Party, Scott Brown (voting for a repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell), and the Tea Party who largely got him elected. They continue to put their hope in politics.
“Folks, I have said it over and over. The culture war is lost…
“The spiritual battle continues and it will intensify greatly.
“When I say the culture war is lost, what I mean is:
“I don’t believe we’re going to see the return of the 10 commandments on our school room walls.
“I don’t believe we’re going to see Roe v. Wade overturned.
“I don’t believe we are going to see the Supreme Court all of a sudden change their ruling that we can’t teach creation and evolution side by side.
“In other words, we are passing the point of no return…
“However, that does not mean that we roll over and we don’t proclaim righteousness or stand for that which is consistent with the character and nature of God.
(Mr. Howse encourages involvement in the political process.)
“But, I believe that we may be at the point that God is judging our nation and removing his hand of divine protection…
“We are suffering the consequences you see mentioned in Romans, chapter one.
The program can be found here:
Here is some of what you will hear on the program:
“Brannon also read an article by Christian author Gary Kah and what he saw after attending a conservative conclave in the suburbs of Chicago in November of 2009. Gary’s experience indicated that many people who consider themselves to be part of the pro-constitution, conservative “right” are hostile to God and want answers apart from him.
“This shows how salvation for the born-again, Bible-believing Christian is not in the Republican party, the conservative movement or in winning the culture war, but in Christ Jesus.
The radio program explains the real problem. The “conservative” event that was held in Chicago and described on this radio program tells the story. We have a spiritual problem.
May God have mercy on us. In Him alone is our hope and joy.
