These are the two flags that I pledge my allegiance to. The American flag, whose red stripes are colored by the blood of courageous men who fought for our freedom. The Christian flag, whose red cross was colored by the blood of Jesus Christ who fought for each of our hearts and souls. I’ve voted in a few elections now, and after reading some of the links below this week, I believe this election could be the one that forces me to choose which blood I prefer to pledge to over the other.
Many Christians have been talking about the persecution taking place in this nation for a while, but I don’t believe we’ve seen anything yet. What I find ironic is that people think they are attacking Christians, when really they’re attacking both flags in this picture. To attack someone’s freedom of speech and religion is to attack the freedoms that those Americans fought for hundreds of years ago. I guess those freedoms weren’t enough for you? Are you saying our soldiers should have fought harder and done more than give their lives?
If Barak Obama, who claims to be a fellow Christian, is a elected, I believe that his “pleasing everyone” attitude will most definitely lead to more sin having freedom to reign in this nation. I won’t go into the details of those, the links below did enough justice with all of that. Choose not to read them and hide if you want to.
This is what angers me more than our Christian flag (the freedom found in the blood of Christ) being attacked. Christians feeling like they have to choose a party to follow, not allowing the truths of God’s Word to play any part in their decision. They see their choice as one that has no tie between the two flags (price of blood that was paid). They believe it’s cool to be an American, and that only a few election items actually matter.
I honestly am not concerned about which party wins. We’ve been through eight years of Clinton, and most of rules I still follow under the American flag are fine with me having freedoms under the Christian flag. I am concerned that there is a very slippery slope ahead where myself and my family will have to choose to be obedient to the flag of Christ over our country’s.
Here’s some scripture that shares my thoughts maybe better than I can:
“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Daniel 3:17-18
