The Power of One
Do you know what the First Amendment to the United States Constitution actually says?
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.
Recently, Pastor Lawson Perdue’s right to free speech was denied when he was told he could no longer include the name of Jesus in his ads on 20 bus benches, even though he has been advertising in this manner for 3 years!
It all started because of the complaint of ONE PERSON!
But, praise God, Pastor Lawson knew his rights as an American and fought for them! The decision has now been reversed, and the name of Jesus will remain!
If we as Christians don’t know our rights and, even more importantly, stand up and defend those rights, the First Amendment is in danger of meaning absolutely nothing.
Incidents like this and recent government decisions are a call to action to all believers. We need educated, responsible, godly men and women in government today, leading the way and making decisions on our behalf.
Charis has just opened its new Third-Year Practical Government School. It will equip Christians with a solid foundation in critical areas to effectively impact our government. And it will establish students in the biblical principles of sound government, a true history of the Christian heritage of America, and the practical skills they will need to become leaders who will restore God’s plan for government.
It’s time for us all to stand up and be heard, so the body of Christ is not “caught sleeping” ever again!
If the complaint of ONE PERSON could almost deny someone their right to freedom of speech, then ONE PERSON can truly make a difference!
Let your voice be heard on November 8th by exercising your right to VOTE! And never underestimate THE POWER OF ONE!
