When we say that the appearing of the Star of Bethlehem signifies that persecution is at hand you better believe it.
Today on Fox News, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, proves that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) decision to sue him because the goal is to force Christians ONLY, and not any other religious institution to comply with the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. This spells out persecution. Soon churches will be forced to comply and you better believe it.
The executive order by Jindal was made to protect officials with religious liberty objections from being forced to comply with the Supreme Court ruling that gay marriage is legal nationwide. Jindal interviewed on Fox News explaining his position and why the ACLU is suing him:
Jindal says that the ACLU’s website, and their legal argument history, is filled with defenses of religious liberty. So in response to this action from Jindal, the ACLU came out and planned to sue saying that “Governor Jindal has violated the Louisiana Constitution by setting up special protections for those who share his belief system,” Louisiana ACLU branch executive director Marjorie Esman said. “In our country no one is above the law, including the Governor. He swore to uphold the laws of Louisiana. This lawsuit seeks to hold him to that oath.”
Jindal isn’t backing down, although some in the Republican Party have. Jindal says that the ACLU are for religious liberty, except, and as it turns out, that the one who exercises his right to refuse to participate is a “Christian”. When it is a Christian, the ACLU wants to ensure these only comply.
Isn’t this what we have been saying all along? The war is not on the Muslim, Buddhist, Shinto, Pagan …
it is only a war on the Christians.
Why is it then that the Christian stands against all while all stands against the Christian?
But besides all the persecution, this seems to prove one thing: Christianity is the truth. And while the world can deny the Christian faith, no one on earth can deny, no one, not even the anti-Christians, that Jesus was correct when He said that:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.” (John 15:18-21)
But there is another promise that Jesus made, that the more they persecute, the more victories that the persecuted will gain since Christianity thrives and grows on persecution. Persecution is the water of the faith and the evil these entities bring out is the stinking manure that makes the fruit even sweeter.
