If you are a Christian, you probably already know the reason for this blog; Christianity is under attack and has been for many years. We now have a society that is moving away from God, and when a society moves away from God, it won’t be long before God moves away from that society.
Sharing Your Faith
To many times
Christians turn their heads when they hear someone disparaging their faith, but
here is someone who thinks differently. Former mixed martial arts fighter Ken
Shamrock is urging Christians to “not sit on your Bible” in a time when
many believers feel their faith is marginalized by society.
sit on your Bible,” Shamrock urged Sunday while delivering the sermon
at Valley Bible Fellowship in Bakersfield, California. “Don’t hug it to
your chest and keep it to yourself. God created you a certain way. Just because
you’ve become a Christian doesn’t mean you become passive.”
also encouraged listeners to never “pass up an opportunity to spread God’s
gospel or his word because it is eternal life or eternal damnation.”
The former MMA fighter opened up about his
difficult childhood, including the poverty he faced, his decision to run away
from home, and his criminal record.
“I believe God is using me to reach out and
touch people who are struggling with either past experiences or experiences
that are going on right now,” he said. “And that being able to talk about some
of the things that I have gone through would help them understand that there is
another way for them to get past some of the demons that they’re working
through.” We need more people thinking like him.

Isaiah 5:20New King James Version (NKJV)20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isn't that verse now true? We now have a society that dismisses God, but what do we celebrate? We celebrate same sex marriage, we celebrate homosexuality and other perversions, we celebrate abortion, we celebrate unwed motherhood, we celebrate prostitution by normalizing it by calling them sex workers, and we celebrate law breakers while we criminalize the people who defend our laws. There comes a time in every persons life when they reach a point and say enough is enough, I have reached that point.
I am sure there are those out there that believe that the Bible teaches us not to fight, but the Bible is full of warriors who fought many battles for God and their Religion. One of the greatest warriors of all times was Joshua. Joshua was a major figure in the events of the Exodus. He was charged by Moses with selecting and commanding a militia group for their first battle after exiting Egypt, against the Amalekites in Rephidim (Exodus 17:8-16) in which they were victorious.
Joshua 8:1 Now the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not fear or be dismayed. Take all the people of war with you and arise, go up to Ai; see, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land.
Why, all of a sudden, is God unconstitutional in this country? America was founded on Judeo-Christian values, the Ten Commandments are posted in courtrooms, In God, We Trust is on our money, and there is a national day of prayer. But somewhere along the line, God became unconstitutional. The first amendment of our constitution guarantees us freedom of religion, but we now seem to think that it says freedom from religion.
Recently in a high school in Pennsylvania, a student wanted to thank God for His immeasurable blessings on Beaver High School’s graduating class. But she could not because it was against the law. Against the law, what happened to freedom of religion? The student wanted to offer thanksgiving to the Almighty for parents and coaches and teachers, but she could not because it was against the law.
Here is what she wanted to say; “Lord, surround us with grace and favor everywhere we go,” she prayed. “Soften our hearts to teach us love and compassion, to show mercy and grac…
