Silence in the face of evil
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the brave German pastor who paid with his life for his actions against the Nazi regime said: “Silence in the face of evil is in itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
“A decision not to vote is a de facto vote for Hillary Clinton.” –Jerry Falwell, Jr. (Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA.)
Pray USA: Government Leaders Calling the Nation to Prayer
People of faith can no longer sit idly by and passively watch as our nation’s history and our Judeo-Christian heritage are being rewritten with a false narrative. In a unified step together, government leaders have passionately called on God’s people to unify with one heart and one voice to pray and take action for the United States.
Nevertheless, here is what we can do: We can pray. We can elect government leaders who will fight for our religious liberty. We can organize. We can fight back. We can celebrate our heritage. We can display our National Motto, “In God We Trust.” We can reignite our churches and be a voice for what we believe in.
Pray USA was launched in 2015 when government leaders called the nation to a national prayer initiative. The vision: Government leaders and pastors standing together in the church will help break the back of the lie and misapplication of the “separation of church and state” which has hindered Christians from expressing their faith in the public square.
We hear the echoes of true prejudicial hatred that cry out, “You can’t pray at the football game.” “You can’t wear that cross to work?” You can’t quote the Bible outside of your church.” “You can’t ‘harass’ your coworkers with your religious talk.” “You can’t call that sin.” “You can’t put up that Christmas display.” And the list goes on.
As people of faith, we believe that freedom is secured through Judeo-Christian values, and it is time to wake up, stand up and speak up! The concerted effort to secularize America has eroded our nation’s spiritual foundation, assaulted our natural rights and nearly silenced Christians with threats and intimidation. This is not a cause for pulling back—this is a call to action!
Pray USA has been launched by the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation, along with Congressman J. Randy Forbes and Senator James Lankford, co-chairs of the Congressional Prayer Caucus.
It’s time to reclaim our heritage and for the nation to recognize that people of faith care about what’s happening within our culture, about our beliefs and values—millions of us! It’s time to send a wake-up call to the halls of power, as well as to the person next door.
Do not be apathetic! Do not sit back and tolerate evil! We pray that you will have the moral courage to vote to affirm, the inward vision that the Creator God in Heaven now prepares for those who trust in Him. “Without faith, it is impossible to please God…..” (Hebrews 11:6).
