When They Came for Me I was Too Busy
« on: Thu May 21, 2015 - 07:36:17 »
I am tired of constantly hearing from Christians about how bad things are, particularly the spread of abortion, homosexuality, divorce, and the increasing number of same-sex marriages. Brothers and Sister in Christ it is not going to help your feelings nor your frustrations without doing something about it now regardless of how busy you are.

Bradlee Dean, a writer for NewsWithViews.com. just wrote an article, entitled, "They Just Should Sing Louder", which can be accessed by clicking on the following link:

<link removed as per forum rules>

After reading it I felt like I would like to write my own excerpted version.

Therefore, if you don't stop your griping and complaining about these issues but won't take the time to speak out, this is what I feel will happen to you and how you would respond:

First they came for prayer in school, and I did not speak out—because I was not acknowledgeable about how the Supreme Court of the United States could make ungodly and immoral decisions.

Then they came to murder the unborn in their mother’s womb, and I did not speak out— because I was not an unborn child and never dreamed that prochoice could include murdering your unborn child.

Then they came for the legalization of two men or two woman getting "married" to upend America’s sovereignty and I did not speak out because I did not want to be called a hater or a bigot
.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me, because I never spoke out for anyone else, always too busy doing something else and half of what I was doing did not give nor honor God's glory but was for my own selfish reasons' (words in bold are mine).

If we are willing to go to war and die for what will happen because the situation got so badly out of control, like the Revolutionary War, wouldn't it be better to confront the issues now while you, your sons and daughters are still alive before a war breaks out, possibly killing some of them by now taking the time to deal with them. One day you will be forced to take the time so why not do it now on a voluntary basis?

I AM SORRY TO REPORT I COULD NOT GET MY WORDS IN BOLD SO DISREGARD THIS AS WRITTEN BUT READ BRADLEE DEAN'S ARTICLE TO SEE WHERE HIS WORDS END AND MINE BEGIN.  SORRY FOR THE PROBLEM.

This is why I vote: To speak out against these things.  They put it before the people and I stood up and said NO!

"Then they came to murder the unborn in their mother’s womb, and I did not speak out— because I was not an unborn child and never dreamed that prochoice could include murdering your unborn child.

Then they came for the legalization of two men or two woman getting "married" to upend America’s sovereignty and I did not speak out because I did not want to be called a hater or a bigot"
