In NO WAY are there any threats, calls to violence or advocating violence in this video. We are talking about praying, fasting, writing letters, sending emails, or making phone calls about subjects which are against the Christian faith. This shouldn’t need to be said, but sadly because of violence towards others for political reasons that have been occurring more recently it has become necessary to condemn all actions of violence. In Ephesians God teaches us that our fight is not against flesh and blood but forces of evil and as such we oppose any acts of violence against others as not Biblical.
“10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
It is important to notate that when we speak of fighting in this video it is always mentioned in definition 2 of Merriam-Webster dictionary which states “to put forth a determined effort.” (Merriam-Webster) As stated above in the video where people were called to fight it was in NO WAY in the physical violent sense, but in the mind, through debating and speaking up, as well as in the spiritual by praying, and protecting our walk with Christ as Christians are instructed in Timothy.
1 Timothy 6:11-12
“11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
We exhort you to be determined for Biblical values as we are exhorted in Jude to contend for the faith
“2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”
We want you to succeed, so that at the end of your life be able to say like the Apostle Paul, “I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy 4:7
“7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
This video is about truth and about Jesus Christ, Whom not only is the Truth but embodies all truth for indeed He is the way, the truth, the life.
“6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
We will talk about the abandonment of truth in our society, in the medical field, in science, in postmodern mores or actions of individuals and society. We will discuss about the most dangerous abandonment of truth which is found right amongst us in our own churches.
