Chuck Baldwin: The Rapture Problem

October 5, 2013 Vengeancia 0

Chuck Baldwin Live In this column last week, I stated the salient reasons why pastors will not take a public stand on issues regarded as controversial or political. I believe every point I made are the real reasons pastors refuse to stand for much of anything–or even objectively study anything outside their comfort zone. To review, most pastors refuse to take a stand because:

1. They are success oriented and have an innate aversion to anything that is considered to be controversial. And, to them, there is nothing more controversial than politics.

2. They are afraid that if they take a controversial stand, they will lose members–and more importantly, tithes and offerings. Most churches are neck-deep in debt and are heavy-laden with staff and overhead. The thought of losing even a few giving families is enough intimidation to make sure that they do nothing to offend the people of the congregation. And since the pastor never addresses controversial issues or preaches “hard” sermons, his congregation is filled with people who harbor myriads of big-government, socialist ideas and would immediately bolt at any mention of Biblical Natural Law principles that ran counter to their leftist ideologies.

3. They have an erroneous interpretation of Romans 13 that civil government must be submitted to regardless of how evil or immoral its laws might be. This fallacious interpretation of Romans 13 (which is taught in practically every Christian school and college in America) has made them de facto slaves and worshippers of the state. As did Germany’s pastors and Christians in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, America’s pastors and Christians suffer from national “exceptionalism.” This fallacy leads them to believe that by serving the state, they are serving God. In their minds, one cannot be “right with God” if they are not totally submissive to the state.

END OF EXCERPT

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God….Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves….For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.” Romans 13 (NKJV)

“Have you wondered where these terms ‘sustainability,’ ‘smart growth,’ and ‘high density urban mixed use development’ came from? Doesn’t it seem like, about 10 years ago, you’d never heard of them and now everything seems to include these concepts? Is that just a coincidence, that every town and county and state and nation in the world would be changing their land use/planning codes and government policies to align themselves with…what?” Read more.
