911: While We Sleep

I just uploaded a new post to my new blog, A Digital Pamphleteer. Titled Thuggery and Thievery, the post links to a substantive article in Rolling Stone Magazine about how movers and shakers in the finance industry, the Federal Reserve, and the US government are literally stealing America's wealth.

I am posting a link to it here because this blog, Kingdom>>>Church>>>Culture is focused more on the spiritual aspects of life in our once Judeo-Christian culture.

Many Christians, and many pastors too, believe that Christians should not become involved in politics or engage in activity focused on civil government related issues.

Of course I disagree. And I have made what I consider to be a very strong, Biblically-supported case for involvement and engagement. In fact, much of this blog, since 2004, has addressed this question.

I write today to point the reader, particularly the Christian reader, to my other blog and specifically to the post listed above.

While we sleep friends, we and our American countrymen are being mugged and robbed. Our homes are being pillaged. Our government, and its accomplices, are raping the hard-working, tax-paying American.

A heinous crime is being perpetrated right under our noses, every minute of every day. And what do we do? We go to church. We attend our weekly home group meetings and discuss our marriage relationships. We attend our Bible studies and pray for the needs of our friends and families.

All of this is, of course, good.

But all the while, we are looking the other way, burying our heads in the proverbial sand, behaving as if things aren't really all that bad. And right now, on the surface, life is relatively calm. But don't be fooled. A nasty, deadly, multi-year storm is coming.

What would you do if you saw a person on the street being mugged and robbed by a thug? Well, first you would call 911 on your cell phone, and then, depending on who you are and how you react at that moment, you may intervene and try to stop the crime.

Well whats going on in America's halls of government and Wall Street offices is no different. The only thing separating one mugger from the other is a suit and tie.

Please read.
