The Tipping Point

The Tipping Point

 

In America we are at the tipping point of our religious freedom being saved or lost. The decisive battles are being waged in courtrooms every day. Yet the most important “soldiers” of this war, are not the lawyers, but you and I, everyday people of faith who make the decision to stand.

The lack of awareness of our religious liberties have led to violations of the lawful rights of citizens who merely want to peacefully live out their religious beliefs as they earn a living and contribute to our society.

The present day attacks come in the form of:

Government authorities demanding in more than one state to see pastor’s sermons

The government threatening to jail ministers who will not perform same-sex marriages

People losing their jobs because of religious views they have expressed outside the workplace

Bible clubs being unlawfully banned in schools

Religious language being taken out of graduation speeches

Forbidding Bible reading at free time and prayer over lunch in public schools

Veterans’ Memorials in jeopardy of being torn down for the use of religious imagery

Exorbitant fines being issued to business owners for exercising their faith

Faith-based ministries forced to provide and facilitate abortion-inducing drugs

 

This is just a short list of the attack or our fundamental core to worship and exist as a Christian.

 

The US government puts it in their 'congressional record' as:

When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the unions and industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned. Then, Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church -- and there was nobody left to be concerned.
