Shining A Light in Darkness.

Updated: Apr 2, 2022

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil:

God will not hold us guiltless.

Not to speak is to speak.

Not to act is to act.”

~Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Jesus said, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” (John 13:15).

If you know Jesus then you know what He has done for you, and what you should be doing for Him.

Go into all the world and preach the gospel, make disciples, and teach them to observe all things Jesus commanded. Paraphrased from the gospels of Matthew and Mark.

You’ve heard the saying; evil prevails when good people do nothing. I refuse to stand by and do nothing, and I will not stay silent when the Bible speaks loud and clear about what is good and what is evil and how we should live.

I’m a radical born again believer in Jesus Christ. That doesn’t mean I’m perfect, or that I have it all together, or that I think I’m better than anyone else, quite the opposite. I know how wretched I am, how unworthy and undeserving I am to be a child of God, but I am, by the grace and mercy of God, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, I am a born again daughter of the Most High God.

You may not like me. You may think all kinds of bad things about me, which may be true and may not be, but it only matters to me what God thinks. And because of Jesus, He thinks the world of me. Not because of any good I’ve done, but because of the all good Jesus did for me on the cross, and because I have surrendered my life to Him.

Lots of people say they are Christian. But that word has become meaningless today because many people who live completely contrary to the Bible call themselves Christian simply because they are apart of a certain church.

A true Christian is one who loves God with all of their heart, mind, soul and strength, and seeks to follow Jesus’s example and loves others as He commanded us, and showed us how to do. A true Christian’s lifestyle, decision making, and voting honors God and upholds Biblical values.

This is my belief system formed from the Bible, which may or may not be yours, and that’s okay. We can agree to disagree. Thank God and thanks to our constitution.

I believe I will stand before God one day and give an account for my life and the decisions I made by faith.

I believe I have a responsibility given by God to proclaim His word.

I believe as a Christian, a born again believer in Jesus Christ, that to live is Christ, and to die is gain, that my life is not my own, it belongs to Jesus, and my sole purpose for being is to glorify Him, proclaim His gospel, and be willing to be hated and rejected as He was for the extreme and radical belief: that God so loved us that He gave His only Son to die for us that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life; and unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Our country is very troubled and moving further and further away from the Biblical values that we were founded on. So, I want to proclaim truth and encouragement to those who are troubled, worried and confused by all the mis and dis information out there.

I am, Pro God, Pro Jesus, Pro Holy Spirit; Pro Bible, Pro Church (as the Body of Christ, not as a religious institution), and Pro preaching the gospel.

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to the Father in heaven except through Him.

God created the heavens and the earth and everything and everyone in them, for His purpose, for His honor and for His glory, not our own.

I am, Pro marriage, between a man and a woman only, because that’s how God designed it to be and that’s the ONLY marriage He recognizes. And it’s the only marriage that the Church should recognize. Jesus is the authority who determines what’s right and wrong, good and bad, not any other person, no matter their office, and obeying God’s word matters more than any other law or mandate.

I am, Pro America and the constitution, and the bill of rights, standing for the American flag and the National Anthem, and remaining one nation under God, because that’s how this nation was founded.

I am, Pro life, all life, the unborn to the elderly, all colors, all nationalities, ALL LIVES MATTER, even those you don’t like and those you don’t want.

I believe God created us male and female, not neutral, nor fluid. Gender is determined by God not by feelings.

For a Christian, a real Christian, we have a responsibility to defend those who can’t defend themselves. If a Christian votes for a candidate who is pro choice, that is supporting abortion, regardless of where you stand on the issue. Abortion is murder and it is your choice to kill or not to kill, but it is not our right, regardless of Roe v Wade. Supporting someone who is for murdering babies in the womb is the same as supporting someone who is for killing your child in the womb. It makes you culpable.

This issue of abortion is not a political issue, it is a moral, ethical and spiritual issue. This issue makes all the other issues irrelevant because if we are for killing our children in the womb then we have completely gone off the rails, and become as evil as Hitler, and we deserve whatever consequences come to us as result.

For those who have committed the terrible sin of abortion, and still living in guilt and shame, there is forgiveness, hope, healing and redemption in Jesus Christ. For while we were yet sinning Christ died on the cross for our sins taking our penalty of death, taking our guilt and taking our shame onto Himself and by believing and receiving Him as Lord and Savior we are saved from our sins, spared hell, and given abundant life in Christ for all eternity. Praise, honor and glory to God!

“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

You can agree, disagree, like, unlike, love, hate and call me whatever name you want, and I’m still a beloved daughter of the Most High God bound for heaven with a clear conscience, washed in the blood of the Lamb, saved and redeemed by His grace.
