The world seems to want me to "compromise"... in the name of love. I got news for the world. I practice "tough love" and spiritual power and authority in the Lord Jesus Christ. There's your love.
In California people are threatening to burn down churches, have attacked Christians violently, are being aggressively hostile as they protest at churches, and are engaging in hate crimes on numerous levels. The left exemplifies and justifies extreme mob violence and hate. They want love "their way" as in "Give me everything I want - do as I say - or I'm going to burn down your churches and kill you." (That's the level threats that have been expressed towards Christians.) They actually believe in murder in place of democracy based on statements they've made.
As Christians, we are not called to put up with this violence and hate and persecution. This calls for tough love, not compromise.
If the world wants me to compromise my Christian values and beliefs so that they can have moral and sexual anarchy as well as violence in anarchy... NO! If the world doesn't think that's the kind of "love" they want: "Tough".
It's not OUR JOB PEOPLE to convince other people to try to "win their souls" in our own strength and power. We need to use common sense and enforce civil authority. We cannot allow anarchy and violence.
These extremist haters must be stopped and their behavior curtailed by civil authority. We need to compromise LESS in the name of "love". We cannot compromise principles, values, beliefs, or self-protection and self-preservation. We must stand firm in "tough love". We've got to look out for ourselves here. Think of the Christians who will be attacked if Christians don't stand up for what's right and insist that order is maintained. If this escalates because it's not dealt with firmly, innocent people may potentially be hurt. Christians must band together to practice "tough love".
We cannot save people by showing them our soft white underbelly. If they are not convinced by the Holy Spirit as we preach the cross of Jesus Christ, no amount of weakness on our part is going to save them. It's time for tough love, America!!
