And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.
Our nation’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence, declared that
we are endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness. Since our nation’s founding, America has decided some
lives matter more and some lives don’t matter as much.
We need to be the nation God has asked us to be. Ezekiel 22:2 asks us, “Son of
man, will you judge her? Will you judge this city of bloodshed? Then confront
her with all her detestable practices.” Verse 29 goes on to say, “The people
of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and
needy and mistreat the alien, denying them justice.”
As Christians, our duty is to encourage other believers to join together and
collectively advance our God-informed opinions. We have to move forward by
acting like our Lord Jesus Christ does. Participating in our democracy is not
optional for Christians. It is an important way to make a positive impact on
our culture and create a more moral America.
