Letter to the Editor
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

It's time for Christians to vote. The problem is Christian laziness — too many come to Christ, sit in the pew and do nothing.

Am I the only one who has noticed how Christians are portrayed in movies? They're the cowards. When there is a big gunfight, the preacher hides with the women.

If you read the Scriptures, people of God were fighters. David, Joshua, Daniel and Paul fought for what is right.

When we read Ephesians 6:10-18, we see a Christian is to put on armor to fight. It doesn't mention this, but the only part of the body not covered is the back. In other words, we are not to turn and run.

It's time for Christians to fight. We complain that things are bad, but why is that? It's because we compromise. Well, God never made peace with the devil.

Remember, Jesus said, “Go into all the world.” Why? To preach. James said, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Don't be afraid of him — fight him. John said, “Greater is he that is in thee than he who is in the world.”

So, stand up for your Christian rights. Fight for them. Pray in public. Don't disappoint God.

And when Christmas comes, let's be sure to tell our children how Christmas got its name.

Let's have some fun.
