We live in an Age of Derangement, where pagans control Democratic Party and American institutions like the media, schools, businesses, and academia. So, what must Christians do if America is to continue under God’s favor and survive? Simply speaking, they must boldly become the Salt and Light of the world!

Here’s what the church must do in 2021:

Christians must boldly and publicly identify as Christians first, not by race, political party, sex or other identities, in order to become the moral center for our country again.

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Why are so many Christians afraid to speak up and identify as Christians? Unlike the woke radicals who are not hesitant to proclaim their identity everywhere, we have the Truth on our side. Christians must show courage, and put their Christian identity FIRST in their personal, professional and public life. We must not allow the radicals to divide us by race, sex, age, political party, sexual orientation, or class; we must start unifying as followers of Jesus Christ.

Christians and clergy must publicly recognize that we are a nation divided, pagan and Christian, and that we are engaged in a spiritual battle where one side is actively annihilating Christians, our constitutional republic, and the downtrodden, poor, and sick.

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Why are so many Christians fiddling around while America is burning? It should be obvious to all that the radicals have put on their armor and swords, and they won’t stop the persecution until all Christians are “reeducated” and our country is destroyed.

Our nation and our constitution will only survive if we return to being a moral and religious people. Looking at religious attendance in America, the denial, avoidance, and appeasement and other “fiddling” strategies adopted by many Christian leaders have utterly failed. Jesus was not “nice” or “accommodating” of evil’s demands; for us to continue to ignore evil’s systematic efforts to steal about 2% of Christian believers away from Church each year, and accept the collapse of our nation, is sinful and immoral.

We must put on OUR armor, belt, helmet, shield and sword and prepare ourselves through repentance, prayer and God’s grace to engage against the movement that is destroying faith, family, children, and the most vulnerable (poor, homeless, mentally ill, substance abusers) in our nation.

Christians, especially pastors, must enter into battle in the great public policy and moral debates of our time, engage with elected officials and governments (politics), and disallow secularists from marginalizing us with calls of “separation of church and state.”

“Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”

Jesus Christ never said anything about separating politics from the church, or vice versa. While there are some issues Christians need to let Caesar lead, gone must be the days of Christians and pastors declining to engage themselves and their flocks because of “politics,” or because our enemies scream “separation” at us.

Proclaiming the word of God in the public square, providing moral leadership to our state leaders, protecting the faithful from the wolves, and teaching and baptizing nonbelievers is not playing politics: it is what Jesus, Paul, all the prophets and missionaries have done for millennia, because that is His will.

Many German Christian leaders avoided politics and engaging with the political leaders preceding World War II and their inaction paved the way to a world racked by evil, death and destruction. Be involved, so that we can serve our Lord Jesus Christ, make a difference here in Washington State, rather than just singing a little louder.

As we move away from 2020, a year when Christ’s enemies, in a big way, came out in the open here in America, let us not forget that Jesus has called us “..to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Expect to be condemned for your faith, and “do not be afraid,” as Jesus instructed his disciples in Matthew 10.

Will America be Pagan or Christian? Will they choose life or death? As evil grows, there can be no separation or silence between our faith, our work, our presence in our communities, and our politics. Let us go forth publicly as followers of Jesus Christ first, and make Washington State and America a Christian state and nation again! If we do not, America will truly be lost and destroyed. Help us educate and activate Christians here in 2021. Join with us and help expand our network of faithful Christians spreading the Good News! Let us speak the Truth of Jesus Christ with courage and compassion, and make our nation faithful again.

Later this week, we will release the 2021 FPIW Christian Policy Agenda for Washington State — stay tuned!
