PUBLIC FORUM: Christians must stand up for rights

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on national news that countries overseas are upset over a video that outraged them to kill four U.S. citizens and destroyed everything that the United States gave: lives, money and the hope for a better future. And now we know the truth. That it was terrorism. Terrorism that was planned, and yet our secretary of state who represents us, the people of the United States of America, said that the religion of Islam was a great religion. This is our country, and yet “we the people of the United States” have never heard our government say that our religion or our faith in Jesus Christ is great under President Obama. We, in our own country, have to defend our faith at every turn. Our children can’t say the Pledge of Allegiance to our own flag in our schools, our children can’t have a Christmas play any more (it’s called a winter play), and they can’t pray and thank our God, Jesus Christ, for all He has done. And now our government wants to take our morals away by telling the people of faith that our hospitals and yes us have to pay for things that go against our religion, our faith and our Bible that we live by.

Christians of the United States, it is time that we stand up for faith before our children don’t know who they are and someone else is telling them what to believe in! Our leaders need to remember that they represent the United States of America, and yes we have faiths of all religion, but this country was built on Christian beliefs to love, support, encourage and forgive but not to give up our faith in Jesus Christ for what He did for us.

Before it’s too late this year, stand up for our freedom. Stand up for our rights. Stand up for our children for a future that is free to worship of your choice! Remember John 3:16, “that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son for you!” 11 Chronicles, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

How long and what will it take before we see that we need Him, and we can’t do it on our own? Let me tell you this country we live in is great, and our faith is great in Jesus Christ to worship as we choose, and it’s worth standing up for! God bless you, your family, your place of worship, and God bless America!

- Linda Hyder, Logansport
