The answer is both. We as Christians are called out into the world. We are salt and light. When Christians sit in the church and say politics is too dirty, I don’t want to get involved, I’m just going to stay in my four walls and pray, God will do the rest. They are missing the main point of Christianity. God wants a partnership with humanity, he wants to use us as salt and light to tear down the strongholds of evil and plant the flag of freedom and liberty to all people.
Some churches are waking up, they realize that we have sat around and allowed evil to overcome good. If the gates of Hell, according Matthew 16, shall not prevail against the church, then why are we sitting around doing nothing. We have misunderstood the meaning of that verse. That verse means the Church will be coming against evil. Evil will not prevail as we make advancements and take our rightful place in this world.
We should rule and reign with Christ even now in the spiritual world. We have been given the authority of Christ. We are to go out and fight to reclaim our heritage as a Christian nation.
Every day, and just yesterday I had someone tell me the same thing that I hear over and over. We are in a spiritual fight for this country. So very true! I don’t know about you but I plan on winning this battle. rh
