The real “wokeness” is, it’s time for the church to “wake up!”
Romans 13: 11-14 speaks to us as Christians that it is high time to awake out of sleep, “for now our salvation is nearer than we believed. The night is far spend, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife, and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh to fulfil the lusts thereof.”
We now live in an era where our government is attempting to exert more and more control over us. They want to shape our thought processes, control our speech, our actions as individuals, and they want to redefine who America was, is, and will be in the future.
We need to wake up and reflect upon what Ronald Reagan once said, and I quote: “Government is not the solution to the problem; Government is the problem,” when the government begins to tell us what we can preach from the Bible, who we must hire, even though they violate our moral beliefs and principals, what is and what isn’t marriage, as though marriage is government initiated, rather than God ordained, and we must use our tax dollars to kill babies and experiment with their body parts, when we can worship, and so much more when it comes to our personal faith, they have trespassed into spiritual matters, and there are so many other issues our nation is facing.
It’s time to wake up, America. There is a multitude of other issues that need to be addressed, but the most important one for right now is that we need to wake up as a so-called Christian nation.
