Fools rupture; the wise reckon and restore.
As Written by Allen B. West:
Our home church Pastor Scott Eynon of Community Christian in Tamarac, Florida recommended we check out Pastor Todd Wagner and Watermark Community Church, and, lo and behold, it’s only 10 minutes from our house here in Dallas. We’ve been very pleased at Watermark; the ministry team truly preaches God’s word. Aubrey and Austen like Watermark because there’s a large millennial crowd — just makes me feel old.
Yesterday, Pastor Wagner spoke about the “end times” and the indicators/warnings that some perceive. One scripture included in his sermon caught my attention, and I’d like to share it. The scripture comes from Luke 12:48 (New International Version):
“…From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
There are some who will read this to mean, “tax the rich,” which is a politicized interpretation. What this scripture actually means is that those blessed with increased responsibility are likewise held to higher standards of accountability. This is something leaders understand; whereas charlatans, on the other hand, instead use their position, power and influence only for their own interests.
This scripture also applies to the blessings we enjoy here in America. When one considers what these United States of America have achieved in 239 years, it’s absolutely astonishing. Those blessings don’t come from the hand of government, with the little “g”; but rather, from God — truly the big “G.” We aptly sing, “God bless America, my home sweet home.”
The accountability that falls to America is to be that beacon of liberty and freedom. It’s imperative to recognize we’re the guardians of this place where those who labor and are burden-laden can come to find rest. America is a place where the Judeo-Christian faith heritage is entrusted to honor the greatest gifts from our Creator, the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Sadly, we find ourselves in an America, as Pastor Wagner so artfully stated, on the horns of a dilemma. Pastor Wagner posed the question, shall there be a rupture or reckoning of America?
How is it that in just a few short years — since ……
