Turn Around

An open letter to Representatives and Senators:

Some of you claim to be Christian. In fact, many of you quote scripture to serve your personal agendas. Yet, you fail to be who you claim to be. A “Christian” is a “follower of Jesus Christ.” The name Christian literally means, “little anointed one.” Where is your anointing? Where is the moving and direction (anointing) from The Holy Spirit? Where are you “following Jesus” in the votes you have cast and WILL cast?

It is time to turn around and go a new direction!

I was praying for you tonight. I prayed that you would remember the Word of God…not for show, not for bravado, not for your personal gain or for political support, but for the sake of the American people. I was praying you would turn around and go a new direction.

The House has already voted to harm the weak, steal from the poor, cast aside the struggling and vulnerable. Again I ask, “How, by this vote, did you follow Jesus? Do not DARE to claim to be a Christian, when you do not follow what Jesus taught you through God’s Word. Jesus healed the sick, cast out greed, fed the hungry and so much more! Again I ask, where oh Christian Congressperson or Senator have you or will you follow Jesus by your vote?

Micah 6:11-16

Am I still to forget your ill-gotten treasures, you wicked house, and the short ephah, which is accursed? Shall I acquit someone with dishonest scales, with a bag of false weights? Your rich people are violent; your inhabitants are liars and their tongues speak deceitfully. Therefore, I have begun to destroy you, to ruin you because of your sins. You will eat but not be satisfied; your stomach will still be empty. You will store up but save nothing, because what you save I will give to the sword. You will plant but not harvest; you will press olives but not use the oil, you will crush grapes but not drink wine. You have observed statutes of Omri and all the practices of Ahab’s house; (a wicked king of Israel) You have followed their traditions. Therefore I will give you over to ruin and your people to derision; you will bear the scorn of the nations.

And verses 6-8   And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God!

Now is the time to turn around and DO what God requires of you. And if you choose not todon’t tell me or the rest of the country that you are a Christian! Because God also said, “Thou shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” In other words, God would prefer that you not tell a lie!  And so would the majority of American voters!

Turn Around!
