I Am NOT Crying “WOLF!!”

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is one of Aesop’s Fables from which came the phrase in English, “to cry wolf.” This phrase has been defined as “to give a false alarm” in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable and further by the Oxford English Dictionary as to make false claims followed later with true claims that are then disbelieved. Unashamedly I am, perhaps, a fundamentalist/conservative Follower of the Christ who understands the Word of God to not only be literally true, but also to be inerrant and inspired, “God-breathed.”

But, “What do you mean by ‘I am NOT crying wolf?’” you may ask. This is not an easy question to answer, but the answer(s) is obvious if simple observations are made. At the moment the President of the United States is under full attack by the liberal left political wings of our Nation’s political system. However, if one has been fully observant over the last 2 or 3 decades and possibly more, the spiritual foundations of our Nation have also been targeted beginning with the Constitution of the United States and each of those documents connected to it. The secular side of our culture is the CEO of this dark and systematic destruction of our culture, politically, religiously, socially and economically. Secular Socialism is managing a very well-orchestrated effort to remove America as has been understood for over 2 centuries. These principles are the foundations upon which Absolute Values are constructed and there is no shadow of doubt that secularism is not connected to those values.

Secularism supports and maintains abortion and every facet of immoral behavior that the Word of God denies. The family structure as prescribed in the Word of God not only has been under attack, but has been successfully dismantled within some racial groups in our Nation. Many within our Nation have been led to believe that working is no longer an ethic, but has been replaced by the idea of reliance upon government is best.

Few people believe it when they hear, “Christians, DO NOT VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS for Christians do not vote for Democrats and people who do so are not Christians.” I do so because secular humanism is fundamental to the Democrat Party. Christian ethics, biblical standards and absolute values are not attached to Democratic values.

And there is one other thing which I will attach to this argument: Israel. Democrats do not support Israel at any level, but we who are Followers of the Christ DO SUPPORT ISRAEL. For this reason alone Followers of the Christ would be hated by secularism.

Because you may be a Believer and are a Christ Follower, you are under this attack and you must learn to stand in the face of this dark and evil attack upon who you are and believe. The battle is on, but we must remember, “‘Don’t be afraid and don’t panic because of this huge army! For the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15 NET2. (Please read chapter 20 in context.)

I am not crying “Wolf” for this battle is in full swing, but be reminded that Jesus is Lord!!
