"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." 2 Chronicles 7:14
"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may me able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness in this age, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:11-12
"A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Second Amendment, United States Constitution
Consider this a warning before we get sucked into a political debate over gun control:
Stop. Seek God. And Pray.
The day after election day, I wrote about how political conservatives must turn to God. That day, I meant it as comfort; today, it's a strategic precondition. God wants to help us, but first, we need to seek him.
This agnostic, Godless, secular, political idolatry bull crap needs to stop (if you don't know what idolatry means, click here). The forces of gun control are Satanic and must be dealt with as such. You will not defeat Satan with a political discussion of violent crime rates. Politics is a trap. To win, we must put on the whole armor of God.
If we learned one lesson this past election, it's the degree to which the American people have bought into the culture of lies. If the public falls for gun control, it will be the same root cause of deception. That root cause is spiritual, not political.
So what does this mean?!? If you know the Lord, keep investing in the relationship. If you don't, buy a Bible and start reading, the rest will take care of itself.
The United States' constitution was a divinely inspired document, including its second amendment. Protecting it requires His help. We will never beat the left at political idolatry. Fortunately, there's Hope. Just follow the instructions in 2 Chronicles 7:14.
