Revolution for Christ

Christmas time is here. The bells are ringing, the holly is hung. Lord knows me and my mother and I have gotten down our hundreds of boxes; and decked each surface of our house with garland, ornaments and whatever else we have. But I must pause from this sensational season and deviate slightly into its real meaning. Many have signs, bumper stickers and proclamation that “Jesus is the reason for the season.” This is, of course, true. However, I do take issue with many of these signs. I am not attacking those who fly the “Jesus is the reason,” signs. More, I am afraid this banner has been tarnished. Why do we need a season to focus on Jesus? Jesus is omnipresent, all knowing and influential. There is an epic battle between good and evil on this earth. America is rapidly splitting in two; with Christians and other God faring people on one side, and everyone else on the other.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but a revolution is coming. The world goes through phases. Today, we are in need of a charismatic Christian leader to put a new face on Christianity itself. The days of the Vatican are dead. The days of the church are dead. The days of the Evangelicals are dead. It is necessary to forge a new spire of Christianity, one which is free of the stigma of child abusing priests, one what is free of corrupt churches stealing money from their congregation, one free of the hate associated with the Christen church. Tough times are ahead, who will you follow? We have reached a day where we can no longer count on our leaders for strength and protection. We need to count on ourselves. Strong leaders are only as strong as their supporters. Stand up and untie, bind together, share your beliefs, share morality to a new generation of people who are compassionate about everyone, rich, poor, black, white. Today is a day to reckoning, a day when you can either fade into the boundless chasm of indecision or stand up and let your voice be heard. Jesus is the reason, not just for the season, but the reason for life. I ask everyone now; live your life for the positive elements of Christianity. Live for the good and the honest, the moral and the caring, the true and the powerless. It is time to choose, time to stand, time to break free of stigma and evil, break free of lies and misinformation. Rise above leaders; we are only strong when we are together. Unite. We are the United States of America. Unite. Lead by example in your own life; people will follow. Be silent leaders, join the revolution. Silence for Christ. Words will be forgotten, speech shall be silenced, and voices will be quashed. ACTIONS never die. What you DO matters. DO good, and DO it for Christ. People will follow. Join the revolution; the revolution for Christ.
