Being A Christian in America

In response to the question, “What is it like to be a Christian where you live?” I would have to say the atmosphere has changed in many ways over my life time.

When we were a smaller and not so financially affluent Nation, we were bold about our faith. Of course, there are always the few who remain faithful in all the varying seasons of our experiences as a Nation. Overall however, there have risen the fumes of political and intellectual correctness that chokes and smothers the open and ardent faith of many of the churchgoers.

I have found it to be a reason for exclusion to be one who believes that there is a Hell. No one ever opposes my belief that there is a Heaven. I am often verbally excoriated for repeating the Scriptures that, “God is angry with the wicked every day.” No one buffets me for extolling God’s goodness and mercy. Both are accurate descriptions of Him from the Scriptures.

With only those few examples I think it becomes evident that we have become those who feast at the Bible Buffet; just choose what you like, throw the rest away.

I am so happy also to report that there are revival fires stirring. That happens when things aren’t going so well and look a bit hopeless. Suddenly, there is God, oh yes! He can help us!”

I am eternally thankful that God is not too proud to forgive us when we repent.

This is my report of my Nation as I see it when I measure what I see against the expectations God has for us as Christians.

I realize that it is a large country and I don’t think my report is one that covers all areas of the Christian experience.

The truth is that since we have a one on One relationship with Jesus, the Christian life is glorious where ever we may live and under whatever circumstances as well.

It is only that I wish to see holy living applauded in my Nation and our God given His proper recognition.
