People often are afraid of being labeled ‘radical’ by others, especially in the political arena. They don’t want to be different from the crowd, or stand out too much. They follow the trends. They go with the status quo. They are afraid of being ‘out of style’ or ‘old-fashioned’. They do what their television tells them to do.
But as Christians, we have a different calling.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” -Matthew 7:13,14
Being radical is what we are called to be: radically different than the dark and spiritually dead of the world. We are called to imitate the Master who set the example for us.
Was Jesus radical? You bet he was! He bucked the status quo of the hypocritical religious leaders throughout His whole ministry. (See Matthew 23 as an outstanding example.)
Did Jesus care if people thought he was radical? No—He was on the Father’s mission, and little did He care what the world thought of Him and His important work. He wasn’t radical simply for the sake of being radical, of course; He simply did the Father’s will. What an example for us!
So how are the called of Christ to be radical today?
First there are some things to understand.
Societal norms are not coincidental. There are people who plan the norms, the trends; and unfortunately most people fall for them.
Most people today will admit that something needs to be changed in our country. Things are not going as well as they should. But because mainstream media teaches people to focus on trivial pursuits, entertainment, and frivolous selfish interests, the majority of people do not know either what the problem is, nor what is the proper solution.
The main problem in America today is nothing less than a multifaceted, all-out attack on our country! The globalist establishment, who are very adamant about subjecting America to international control, are the ones who control the media, education in public schools, and our own government. No wonder there are problems in America today! This subversive establishment, otherwise known as the Insiders, want you and every other American to be largely uninformed about what is really happening to our Republic, so that you will do nothing about it! Don’t fall into their scheme and let yourself be lulled into an apathetic sleep by grandiose government promises of ‘free education’, ‘free food’, ‘free housing’, ‘free entertainment’, and ‘free money’. Politicians would like to have you think that everything is going well for America and the rest of the world, as we move toward ‘closer integration with other countries, bringing about social justice and equality for everyone’. It’s a huge fraud! They conceal their real agenda of a one-world government, commonly called the ‘new world order’. They tell us it’s just about peace and free trade and combating ‘climate change’ on a worldwide scale.
But everything is not peachy keen. America is in trouble. If America does not wake up soon, then she will realize too late what the Insiders have been working on for over a century and have finally brought about: worldwide slavery. America will be simply a state under an all-powerful world government. The elites will oppress the rest of the world.
This is their dream—but it has not been fully achieved; not yet.
Americans, we must stand up and make a difference: for ourselves and future generations. Will the Insiders be upset as they watch their evil plans fall apart? Will they label us ‘radicals’, ‘conspiracy theorists’, or ‘right-wing extremists’? It really shouldn’t matter to us what the Insiders label us when we stand up to them and foil their plans; their anger is just a reassuring proof that we are being effective!
What about the Founding Fathers in their day, resisting the tyranny of King George III; did the Tories call them radicals? Actually much worse: traitors and rebels! However, they withstood the opposition and formed a new country—America—that has long been the land of the free and the home of the brave.
What about our generation? Will we stand up, radical or not, and do what’s right as Christians and patriots? Will America continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave? The choice is up to you, up to me, up to all of us. There will come a time when it is too late to thwart the new world order. Then will not be the time for action.
Now is the time for action. Now is the time to save our country. Now is the time to get radical!
What can we do?
- Educate ourselves
See www.thenewamerican.com —Daily news from a truly Constitutionalist perspective (not a neo-conservative view); gives you the real story of what’s going on, which you won’t hear from establishment media
See www.jbs.org —Join a nationwide action group who has been keeping the Insiders at bay for over 50 years; if enough patriots rally together rather than being lone rangers, we could actually boot the globalist Insiders from places of power and influence
Watch Overview of America http://www.jbs.org/video/featured-videos/item/16829-overview-of-america-video —A free half-hour video that excellently sums up both the problem and the solution with America today
Read the Bible —God’s Word holds the answers for every individual, family, church, and country
- Education of our friends, neighbors, community leaders, and national leaders
Give them the educational tools you used to inform yourself
- Ditch TV
And all establishment media, including radio, music, and the filth produced by Hollywood; only give your business to places who promote morality
- Pull your children out of public school
Educate them yourself, or consider enrolling them in a Christian/Constitution private school like FreedomProject Academy www.fpeusa.org. This is an online school that has live classrooms, video-streaming, and teacher/student interaction; FPA has NO Common Core, revisionist history, or evolutionist propaganda; a classical education that promotes a Judeo-Christian worldview
- Get out of debt
This is one of those harmful societal ‘norms’; but Proverbs 22:7 says, “The borrower becomes the lender’s slave.” Get out of debt and be free!
- Break free of the bonds of “organized religion”
See jesus4king.wordpress.com to find out how man-made organized religion cripples the church—and how to go back to the first century pattern laid out in the New Testament; if today’s church took the early-church approach, not only would we effectively be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, but the righteous would take back our nation from the atheists, and blessed is the nation whose god is the Lord!
Radical changes take work—and courage. But imagine the outcome if the whole nation adopted these “radical” changes! For one thing, it wouldn’t be radical anymore, because everybody was doing it. But more importantly, America would return to being the freest, most prosperous nation on earth with an equal balance of limited government and justice. Let’s take the first steps in being radical like the Master!
