Jim Cabaniss, President of American Veterans in Domestic Defense (AVIDD), sent me one of the most startling e-mails recently, with three of the most thought-provoking questions that I have ever had anyone ask that I would like to share with you.
Following is Jim’s statement.
I am deeply concerned with the obvious erosion of the Christian Church in America. One does not have to be a Rocket scientist to notice that the Lord’s Church is experiencing a diminishing image even among the Christian community.
The news media, Hollywood, the pornography industry, the abortion – Planned Parenthood effort, the “Gay” and Lesbian agenda, the ACLU and certain other organizations are openly showing their intent to destroy the influence of the churches in our society. Even our government is now declaring that there is no God. For example:
In the final minutes of Former Chief Justice Roy Moore's encounter with the Alabama’s Court Of The Judiciary on Nov. 12, 2003, Attorney General Bill Pryor questioned Judge Moore under oath.
Following is an exact exchange of Judge Moore’s Powerful witness. The Attorney General asked, "And your understanding is that the Federal Court ordered that you could not acknowledge God; isn’t that right?” Judge Moore said, “Yes.” Pryor continued, “And if you resume your duties as Chief Justice after this proceeding, you will continue to acknowledge God as you have testified that you would today?” Judge Moore, “That’s right.” Pryor, “No matter what any other official says?” Judge Moore replied “Absolutely.” On the basis of that testimony the Alabama Court of the Judiciary removed Chief Justice Roy Moore from office and stripped him of his reputation. Then they removed the Ten Commandments Monument from the Alabama Supreme Court Building.
It is becoming clear that our Government has taken the position that there is no God, which also means, that to the government, there is no Jesus Christ either, and in the end it will mean no church in America as we have known it.
Pastor Dixon, this is shocking to my family and me. I personally believe that the Bible believing and teaching Christian Church is the most important establishment of God in the history of the world. Please help me to understand what is going on in our Churches. Please consider the answer to the following questions:
1) What is the problem?
2) What is causing the problem?
3) What is the solution to the problem?
I have my ideas as to what the answers to these questions are, and after talking to Jim, so does he. But we would like to hear from you; and not just preachers, but folks from all walks of life. In fact, feel free to forward these questions to your lists to allow others to participate.
The cut off date for your participation is August 15. Keep your answers as concise as possible. Don't just say "SIN,” be specific; we all know that already.
The best answers, with your name, will be published on the editorial page of Freedom’s Phoenix and in The Trumpet Newsletter.
