Hal Lindsay: America has moved from Post-Christian to Anti-Christian; How then do we proceed?

Luke 21:12 “But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake

Important Takeaways:

  • Our Nation Has Rapidly Shifted From Post-Christian To Anti-Christian
  • A few years ago, we would often hear that the United States had entered a post-Christian era. Looking back, it’s amazing how fast post-Christian turned into anti-Christian.
  • Sadly, outrage against the Jesus of the Bible and His followers is growing in size and intensity.
  • The natural, human, fleshly thing, would be to respond in kind. That means answering hate with hate. But that’s not what Jesus said to do. These are people for whom He died. Our goal is not to outwit them, make them look foolish, or show them that we, too, can curse like sailors. Our goal is to win them to Christ.
  • We must not respond by hiding. We should not hide our eyes, pretending that this is just another societal phase, and that all things continue as they have from the beginning. Neither should we hide by retreating into our homes, never venturing beyond our “safe” neighborhoods, and by hunkering down in churches that refuse to engage the world.
  • In any case, hiding will not long remain an option. When a tornado is ripping apart your home, hiding your eyes does not make you safer. There comes a point when you can’t pretend that everything is normal…
  • Hiding is fear-based, and our response must be faith-based. Understand what’s going on. But don’t forget that the most important part of any situation is that the God who created all things is still in charge. So, do what He says.
  • In Matthew 5:44, Jesus gave us explicit instructions. “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”
