It Is Time to Make a Decision

  We are at a point in our society where Christians have to make a very important decision.  In our society Christians are being denied basic rights. For example, Jack Phillips a Christian baker refused to make a custom cake for a gay couple. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/13/supreme-court-ruling-on-colorado-gay-wedding-cake-case-may-be-influenced-by-past-litigation.html

  In this incident a Christian is being forced to do something that goes against his beliefs. This is violating religious freedom! But why? Couldn't these people just go to a different bakery? Why does it have to be this specific one? It seems like they are trying to make a statement. They are making an example of this baker because he disagrees with them.

 This is just one of the many attacks on Christians.  Children and teenagers are being forced to learn secular and evolutionary world views in their schools. Complaints are being filed because Christians state their beliefs publicly, and are being criticized for not going with the crowd. Almost anything you can think of, Christians somewhere are facing it.

  This brings us to the choice. The choice is to stand up for our rights, or just ignore the pain. We live in a time where we can share the truth to millions with a tap of a button. We also live in a time when the government and secularist can shun us. Its only a matter of time where Christians can openly state there beliefs without being persecuted. We have to decide if it is time to fight for our rights or stand in silence while they are being taken away. We have to decide if we are going fight now so the generations after us have the right to believe. I know that I will not tolerate these attacks. I hope somewhere out there someone else thinks the same as me.

If we don't stand up for our freedom who will?
