Good Friday: From “The Good Shepherd Lays Down His Life for the Sheep” To “The Shepherd Lays Down the Sheeps’ Lives”
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
Jesus of Nazareth as recorded in John 10:11
Today, Good Friday, the Christian world remembers the day Jesus laid his life down for the sake of his flock.
Jesus spoke truth boldly, called out hypocrites and liars, defended the innocent, and turned over tables and fashioned whips to address the wolves.
In many American churches today, Black Lives Matter flags fly as symbols of submission to communist China and its efforts to destroy the United States, and Muslim Brotherhood leaders and operatives are invited in to share all about their “religion of peace”/Islam despite the fact it calls for the submission and killing of Christians.
Yet, pastors of these churches fail to speak truth about America’s Godly heritage, and about America’s foundation of law and government based on “The Law of Nature and of Nature’s God” – legally defined at the time of our founding as the will of God as he reveals himself in creation and Holy Scripture.
Instead of laying their lives down for their flock, many of today’s American Pastors are – wittingly and unwittingly – throwing their flocks to the wolves.
There is nothing righteous nor holy about this, and it endangers local communities and the nation as a whole.
The answer is at the local level.
It is the citizens/parishioners coming together to challenge pastors to do what is right and just – to speak truth boldly about who we are as Americans, who the adversary is, and why they must be dealt with.
