There are nearly 40,000 Christians in the pews of Springfield on any given Sunday. Half aren’t registered to vote and over half of the registered voters don’t vote. If the congregations are inspired by the pulpit they will respond. If they are not inspired by the pulpit they will respond accordingly.
In the meantime, the children of those parents are being exposed to what the educators believe they should think about gender and race. I can guarantee that Christian parents would not agree with those views. I have been in contact with several parents who tried to get the curriculum and were unsuccessful. Sunshine requests are often ignored or given a price tag to obtain it that no one can afford.
My humble plea to pastors is to consider what the Holy Spirit is saying regarding the spiritual slaughter of the lambs of the sheep that God has put under your care. To not encourage the people to use their vote as an extension of their voice to do righteously is negligible. The test scores in Springfield schools have trended downward consecutively for the last ten years while they focused on social engineering. The latest push was to add Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity language to their policies. It failed through a series of events that only God could orchestrate, but they will be back.
The main reason for this post is that the voice of those like me crying in the wilderness are being shut down to a trickle and the last hope is for the pulpits to come alive. Many pastors have succumbed to the notion that the exploitation of children through abortion and indoctrination is political and should be avoided. To hold to that notion is to believe that God is not interested and uncaring. If the pulpit is silent on godly concerns that affects the culture, then God is silent in your community, and guess who will be held responsible for that failure. The people must be warned of the danger and equipped and motivated to respond. It won’t happen any other way.
Please don’t confuse being direct with being mean or crass but consider the possibility that maybe the Holy Spirit is speaking. If there is anyone wanting to know how to maneuver in these waters or interested in getting involved PM me.
There are over thirty-five concerned pastors who have joined the battle. You will not be alone.
Nonpartisan! Are you Serious?
A new PAC in Springfield Missouri has formed called “United Springfield”. Their stated goals are:
- Supporting individuals running for nonpartisan office who aim to unite, not divide, Springfield children, citizens, and community.
- Working to protect what makes Springfield unique.
- Protecting civil discourse, community partnerships, and the welcoming culture of innovation.
- Preserving a united, nonpartisan local government.
There are two terms that require defining in the context being discussed. Nonpartisan and normalcy.
Based on how Marxist ideologues use of the term “nonpartisan”, it simply implies that they can spout their ideology freely while all others just shut up. Normalcy is defined by having the ability to get back to imposing their ideology without having others participating in the process. In other words, based on their application of nonpartisanship they have complete control of all ideals and information.
For example, it was normal when the votes on the school board were mostly a 7-0 rubber stamp. Now that there are sometimes a 4-3 vote it is considered a disruption.
I think that it is important to point out that the co-chair of “United Springfield”, Terri McQueary supported one candidate who consistently votes for LGBTQ policies which are partisan positions. Mrs. McQueary is a registered Republican that appears to not concern herself with Republican values demonstrated by her actions.
The idea of nonpartisanship is oxymoronic to its core. It supposes that we all should think and act alike. I must ask the question, “are any of these people married?” Nonpartisanship simply provides cover for partisans. If the school board were united around traditional academics, then we can truly unite and consider everyone nonpartisan. However, when social engineering trumps academics, partisanship is required. I hope to attract partisans who are willing to stop what I would call a demonic attack on our children.
If Mrs. McQueary is truly concerned about the disruption and divisiveness maybe she should join those who are working to stop the radical indoctrination of innocent children. When partisans declare themselves to be nonpartisans, don’t be fooled. This notion must be challenged. Nonpartisanship for those who use Marxist tactics is just another trojan horse. If they want this narrative, let’s call it what it is, a SCAM.
On January 6, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of Communist goals into the Congressional record. The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” Goal #26 was to present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.” In Springfield, MO, this goal is no different from the goals the city leaders and school board administrators, which we just witnessed over the weekend with the city sponsored drag shows for families and their children. These people could and should be removed along with their communist goals. The largest demographic with a mandate from God to promote righteousness in the culture has been sitting on the sidelines. A part of a pastor’s RESPONSIBILITY is to watch the city gates. If fifty pastors inform their congregation on the critical issues and encourage them to vote Biblically, hold two voter registration drives annually and pass out voter guides then God will answer some of your prayers over this city. If we pray on these issues and don’t act, we may be nullifying our prayers.
I’m afraid to say that Christianity is on the same fatalistic path of the radical left. The left teaches that the earth is dying from a myriad of causes out of our control. This constant drumbeat leaves us and our children with no hope and no purpose for investing in the future.
We Christians teach our children that the world is coming to an end, and we repeat it their whole lives. It seems like every two or three years someone in the Church tells us that the end of the world is finally here. The consequence of this errant teaching is that we disincentivize investment for the future. Yes, we go on getting married and having children, but our investment in the things that can better life on earth has been curtailed. How do we explain to our children and grandchildren that we didn’t invest in the public schools because we were waiting for the end of the world?
If our Founding Fathers had focused on the end times the way we do, they would not have invested so heavily into preserving liberty for their posterity. It seems like we are less interested in investing in things that have the greatest impact on our lives, which is absurd on every level. Yet we justify it by saying that it’s all going to burn anyway. While we are repeating that mantra year after year, our children are having children and the earth is still here. With each passing year our liberties are eroding while the evil Left is making more and more investments for control that directly affect our lives.
Proverbs 13:22 says, “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.” This raises the question: at what point do we stop investing in our future? This scripture also suggests that God is the arbiter of possessing and dispossessing. If we are not investing in the future here on earth, then why would God invest in us?
One of the biggest culprits in our diminishing influence is our eschatology. For example, if we were to read Matthew 23:13-39 and Matthew 24 in context of WHAT is being discussed, it is the Judgement. The WHO part of the text that Jesus is talking about is the current leadership of that time that was to be judged. If we asked WHEN the judgement will take place, it is absolutely clear that it happens at the destruction of the temple. If we ask WHERE, the answer is Jerusalem and its surrounding cities.
We Christians get off the rails when we inject ourselves into the picture with our time frame with our cities. We ignore that the scriptures explicitly deal with the Jewish leaders, the temple, and the city of Jerusalem and their surrounding cities. How we got to where we are today cannot be attributed to the scriptures. We have broken all the scientific rules of interpretations. You can’t get to where we are today using exegetical or hermeneutical applications. What is clear in these scriptures as Jesus disciples put it, “And what is the sign of your coming and the end of the age?” The age is the end of the Jewish state as the representative head of the Church and the sacrificial system, which Jesus said that His body (Church) would replace.
It’s past time the Church sit down and have a discussion around this topic. We’ve endured many “Late Great Planet Earth” movies, countless blood moons and never ask what happened or didn’t happen.
While we have abandoned caring for the garden, that is the earth and all its institutions, the evil Leftist are figuratively speaking, busy planting trees for their future. How do we prepare our children to lead and navigate the future if we don’t teach them to plants trees, if we don’t tell them that they have a future and a responsibility to invest in it. How can God favor our investments if we are not investing?
