We have been struggling.
As a society, we cannot seem to accept basic Biblical principles that define who we are in Jesus. As a Christian, we should grab on to the character traits of the Lord and fight for right through them. It would seem that we don’t do this enough. Why? It might be too controversial.
What? Godly character and right in faith is too controversial? “We don’t want to take on hot topics.” “We can’t promote something that seems too political.” “We have to be sensitive to other people’s feelings.”
That’s why Cultural Christianity is failing! Forget the secularists. Christians are too sensitive, tip-toe too much, and don’t want to offend others. Who cares if you offend others? Jesus offended the masses. That’s what happens when you call sin a sin. People don’t like to be told that they’re wrong, even Christians.
This is why people pick and choose and talk about feelings and seasons. No one better link-up the hard truths. They are not in the worthy pile for the chapter of history we are in.
I was recently discouraged from linking up any posts that talked about being pro-life in a Christian group.
It’s controversial and we just can’t have that. If we can’t discuss the sanctity of the life and call out murder, is anything else worth an millisecond of time? Life is the beginning and end, and standing for it should be crucial in any Christian’s life. But, hold up, it is just too sensitive of a topic for us Christians to talk about.
This is why death culture is winning. We strive to be the ProLife Generation, but get shut down by those we counted on to be the first to back us up. Shouldn’t anyone who carries the badge of Jesus protect the most vulnerable? Shouldn’t people who sing the worship songs and head to ladies Bible studies promote life at all stages?
Worth isn’t defined by comfort. Worth is defined by the Lord.
Romans 5:8 ESV
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
If our lives are worthy enough for saving from eternity in Hell despite our atrocious sins, life is worth being advocated for and protected. Discussion should never be muted in any fashion.If our lives are worthy enough for saving from eternity in Hell despite our atrocious sins, life is worth being advocated for and protected.

How do get past fear and feelings? We need to remember that the Lord never said following Him would be easy. He told us to take up our own crosses and follow Him. The load is heavy, but His burden is light. He carries us through even when it gets more than uncomfortable.
It is not time to ease through life anymore, Christian. The generations living on the planet right now need each other. We are heading towards the end and we should never want to see anyone left behind. Speak up and out. Share. Do not put a stop to the topics you’re afraid of. We should not be loving people to death, but speaking to them in love and truth.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
