I'm madder than a hornet!

Okay....I have HAD it! I am off work today and have had such a lovely day cleaning my little house, I have candles lit, did my Bible study, made cookies, planned my dinner, blogged a little, started planning the Christmas season, etc. Then I sat down to eat my tomato soup for lunch and turned on the TV. On a news channel I saw this story. The above posters are on buses in Washington D.C. click here for the link to the Fox news story. It is a poster that says "Why believe in god? Just be good for goodness sake." Notice God is not capitalized. It is put out by The American Humanist Association and they are trying to take Christ out of Christmas.

Oh my gosh, I am just so tired of the attack on Christians. If they were attacking any other religious group, well.....they just wouldn't attack other religious groups, but if they did there would be a huge uproar. Why is it okay to percecute Christians? It's OUR holiday!!! I do believe that this is a sign that we are getting very close to the end times. I am not sure what I can do to protest this, but I am not going to be silent on this one. Us Christians need to stand up and say we will not take it any more! Christmas is a Christian holiday based on the birth of Christ. Maybe they just need to start their own humanist holiday and leave us alone!

"Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." Mathew 16:16

"If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. I Peter 4:14,16

“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you." John 15:18-20

Wow, that's amazing. I've never heard of that group. I think we should pray that it back fires on Satan. That the whole thing provokes LOTS of people and they start praying and putting the focus more vocally on Jesus. "confound the plans of man, Father"

I struggle so about this. It hits a chord in me and I just want to defend my Lord. Then I wonder if He needs me to defend Him. He didn't even defend Himself...just what is a Christian to do? I don't know. I try to stay abreast of any laws that would take away my rights to worship or display my godly beliefs...but...I don't know. Is simply voting enough? I sure do understand your feelings though. Why do Atheists and Witches get more preference? You can read Harry Potter in school but not the Bible? It seems we are the only unaccepted belief...even belief in nothing is a belief system. I appreciate the scripture you added...

I agree Sharon. Im am sick and tired of it. You know at Halloween a boy got sent home that dressed like Jesus,but they can dress like demons and witches. they are taking God out of everything. i wonder how long he will allow it? I like you wanna take a stand,but where do we start?

I think in part the reason why this is all happening is because the devil knows his time is limited. Jesus said we would be persecuted and you know, with the things that are happening today, I just shouldnt be suprised but I am. If you want, I can send you a link to a news video clip, there is an ELDERLY LADY holding a cross standing next to some protesters of proposition 8 that failed in California. Well, they hate Jesus of course and everything the cross stands for. They knocked the cross out of this elderly ladys hand and THEN STOMPED ON IT!!! They yelled at her to go home and stop being hateful. From what I can tell, she wasnt calling anyone names or doing anything wrong.

You asked why they are against christians and not the other faiths. Well, again, the devil knows what is real. He isn't going to waste time on people that are already deceived. Yes, I will have to say this, if you do not believe in Jesus and you don't obey Him, you cannot go to heaven. Jesus said there is one mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus.

Lastly, my brothers old church was "vandalized" to say it lightly DURING the church service. A group of came in during the service, tricked the security guards, and went up to the front of the church saying things about Jesus I would rather not repeat. They did things in front of the church that were terrible. They also carried a pink cross upsidedown. I have a link to it at my blog if you want to read. The sad thing is that the media wouldnt talk about this. My brother lives in lansing where it happened, I live 100's of miles away from it, and I knew before he did.

Right now I think its best to all just get on our knees. In the Bible it says something like "If MY people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, I will heal their land" I am not sure if that is word for word right though. Thats my 2cents on it, and Sorry Sharon, I hope I didnt write a book here for you, you can edit this if you need to.

Sharon,
I saw this on the news today also, it's outrageous. I always make it a point to say 'Merry Christmas' to clerks or cashiers during the month of December.

I have not seen that before, but I'm with you when I checked out your link it just makes my blood boil. It's kind of like where in one store the cashiers can't say Merry Christmas to the customers.
Thanks for posting about this.

Michelle said...

Wow, that's really sad. I've never heard of that group before either. I agree...we as Christians need to be proactive and stand up about this! Thanks for sharing it with us, Sharon, so we can all be aware.

Elena said...

Wow, I have not seen this before. It makes me mad too! It's sad but a lot of people think that and it makes my heart ache.

Hang on to your petticoats, ladies. This is just the beginning.
Have any of you noticed lately, a lot of radio preachers are talking about persecution? The Holy Spirit does that, I've noticed. Same message all over. Pastors of all different denominations, so you know they aren't sharing sermon notes!
If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray...

Amy said...

I totally agree with you. There has always been persecution of Christians since the Bible times. We have always been in the end times too since Christ was crucified. Things like this just make me more anxious for the Lord's return. All I have to say, whoever came up with that sign, they will be judged. They will have to explain themselves one day.

I am sure it is notmeant as an attack on Christianity , but more of an exercise in free speech. Distasteful yes but they must have a lot of disposable money to pay for ads like that. Just keep on doing what's right for you , you can't go wrong . Donna

Sondra said...

Wow, can you believe what the world is coming to. That is such a nasty poster. What a shame.

Sharon, I just read your blog. The humanists do have a holiday--April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. That's the holiday for fools and I wish they would claim it and leave ours alone.

I agree with you, sweetpea!! The new quarters have God taken off and George Washington put on them. I, for one, will refuse to take them! I'm on a crusade for truth....
Smooches,
Connie

Sharon, I just read this post; somehow I missed it before. This is so typical isn't it? They are quite arrogant and feeling pretty smart about themselves. I agree with you, it makes my blood boil too. I love Aunt Helen's response.

I'm going to check out that link to Fox News.

Thanks for Sharing this. Love ya, Kathi
