Political activism not needed
    August 13 2014 by Tim McKittrick, Stoney Point, N.C.

    Romans 1:18-32 describes God’s judicial wrath of abandonment.
     
    The fourth circuit court of appeals overturning Virginia’s marriage amendment, which will probably result in North Carolina’s being overturned, is further evidence that America is under God’s judgment. What should the response to this be?
     
    We don’t need “political activism.” We need pastors and laymen who will speak out with the truth of God’s Word.
     
    Romans 1:16 does not say “political activism” is the power of God for salvation. It says the gospel is the power of God for salvation. The righteousness of God is not revealed in “political activism.” It is revealed in the gospel (Romans 1:17). God is not watching over “political activism” to perform it. He is watching over His Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12).
     
    “Political activism” is not living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart, but the Word of God is (Hebrews 4:12).
     
    “Political activism” will not save you. The Word of God does. You are not born again through “political activism.” You are born again through the living and abiding Word of God (1 Peter 1:23). James 1:18 does not say in the exercise of His will He brought us forth by “political activism.” It says in the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, which is a synonym for the Word of God.
     
    We don’t need “political activism.” We need laymen and pastors who will speak out with the truth of God’s Word.
