VOTING. Today is Election Day. But the problem is who IS NOT VOTING: PASTORS.
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” (Mark 13:22, KJV)
Interesting that even the elect, PASTORS and such, are so deceived by their own lofty ministries and the people that support them, that they as so above VOTING? It would seem they have made themselves equal to God.
Entirely too many Evangelical Pastors are not voting. Being in the Pastorate, one would think that they would be the shining example that they are called to be, but NOT SO. Self-martyred Pastors are put themselves on the Cross siting their many works being more than sufficient than dirtying themselves at a voting station.
Our country was built by a bunch of people that had enough of organized religion. They came here and FOUGHT to keep religious freedom, among others. A Pastor should be an expected example of keeping our freedoms free instead of this gnostic way of showing the hem of their garments. How did this debacle happen? PRIDE.
Is there so great a tribulation that these Pastors can easily ignore a civic duty that people died for? How dare they allow others that are not like-minded to decide the fate of those that WANT to further the cause of Christ!
The Pharisaical way of thinking is to keep the flock dumb and the Elect educated. The Body of Christ is made of many members, some that follow and some that lead. There is no greater a privilege than to lead and teach others in the way of the LORD. This is an office that is SACRED and revered, and should be used for the fullness of GOD, not self.
Precious Pastors: Lead your people in the way of the LORD and not your agenda.
