Why Should a Christian Protest
After all, we have already been saved by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Then why should Christian’s Protest? Well, my quick answer is that “it is not about us”. We should protest for our children, our grandchildren, for those who would come to know Christ but will not hear about Jesus because of the circumstance around them. There are those that are not even given a chance as in the case of abortion. There are many reasons for a Christian Protest . Just as Jesus moved around from city to city so he could voice his message and let others know and learn about him and the righteous path, we should not just sit back and gaze joyfully at the pastor each Sunday and believe we have fulfilled our duties of being a good Christian. The illusion of Christians being a bunch of wimpy do gooders that would not say shit if they had a mouthful of it, should be just that, an illusion. The greatest countries today were founded on Christian principals and morals. Those countries that forgo Christian values and morals are doomed to fail. Just as the Soviet Union has fallen apart, they will fail. Whatever country we live in, it will fail if we allow our government to forget about Christian values and morals.
The slipping away of Christian values happens very subtle. First we allow a little bit of fluctuation with our values, then a little more and a little more. Then they disappear altogether. This has happened with contemporary Christian music. It seems like it started to become acceptable for contemporary Christian music to have some reference that could be interpreted to following Christ. As I listen to contemporary music today, it seems like the reference to Christ has gotten pretty vague as changes occurring with the gospel music lyrics. This has happened very subtly over the years and seems like a tactic of Satan to divert the music away from Christ. Even the music being played on Christian radio stations should have a Christian Protest. We should not allow secular music to be disguised as Christian contemporary music. Without good gospel music lyrics it does not lead anyone to Christ and only aids in diverting them away from Christ.
The list of topics for Christian Protest is pretty long such as prolife, homosexual disorder, commercial Churches not teaching the word of God, Christian music not being Christian, government regulations making a mockery of marriage. The list goes on and on. So, if we want our children and grandchildren to be able to live in a world where they can freely announce their Christian faith, values and morals, we can no longer have the luxury to just sit in the church and be part of the audience. We must start to take a stance and have a Christian Protest.
