To the church in America; Have you lost your eyes for the unseen and swallowed the false hope of the visible. What has gotten into you? Did Christ Jesus die for some groups and leave the rest unsaved? Why have you let political diatribe come between you? Are we not citizens of God’s eternal kingdom? Why have you divided yourselves into political groups? Didn’t Christ die for us all before these trivial political ideologies were established? How dare you separate the body of Christ? What use is the eye to the body if the heart is lost and gone? Why are there churches for people of a particular group – black churches? Did Christ die twice for different groups? Where is the message of love, faith, and hope that binds us all together? When did Christianity become a white man’s religion or a black man’s religion? Thank God that Christ wasn’t black or white. He was a Jew.
To the progressive Christian (whatever that means), what progress do you want to make to the finished work of Christ? Didn’t Christ reconcile us to God the Father once for all time; The scripture says, ” But our high priest (Christ) offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins good for all time.” Are we not saved by faith in Christ? Didn’t Christ give us all the Holy Spirit as an assurance of our salvation? Why have you fallen into the trickery with which the devil seeks to divide us? Are we not one in the body of Christ?
In your last election, there was so much disunity; when did God make President Biden the Messiah? Is there not one Lord, one faith, and one Baptism? Is your faith not worth more than politics? Is there any political name higher than the name of Jesus? Is there any name aside from the name of Jesus by which men call to be saved? Why do you think Christ is not enough that you need to progress His teachings? Didn’t Apostle Paul say, ” All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto good works.” Was Paul not talking about the bible, or is there another scripture? Why have you let devils disguised as angels into your dwelling place? Did God only die for the vaccinated, leaving the unvaccinated without salvation? You say you want to fight against racism, but you have slowly become the monster you are fighting, full of hatred, resentfulness, and spite. You have supported the killings of the unborn, and you call that progress? If the Messiah were to come again as a child, you would have killed him before He saw the light of the day. Does choice now govern us that a woman can freely kill a child in the womb or by the Holy Spirit? Didn’t the scripture say that children are blessings from the Lord? How dare you support the abortion of God’s gift? May God have mercy on you.
To the Christian nationalist, To what kingdom do you belong? The kingdom of this earth or the kingdom of heaven? are you not likened to the disciples when they asked Christ, ” Lord has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom.” And didn’t Christ reply, saying, ” …you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witness telling people about me everywhere.” Are you Christians for America alone or the ends of the earth? Most of you are conservatives. Why try to conserve a nation that can be shaken when you have received an unshakable kingdom. Is Trump now your Lord and savior, or was he the one prophesied to be of virgin birth? Why have you made Him Lord over your heart? Isn’t that where Christ should be? Shouldn’t you care for the other believers who have no freedom to worship God as you do? Are you better off than the Christians in Asia, South America because you live in a better country? Are we not all going to heaven, where Christ is preparing our place of rest? Christ himself said, ” there is more than enough room in my father’s home. If this were not so would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you” will you let politics divide you? are you united by a president or by Christ? Did any Republican die for your salvation? I say again, why fight for a kingdom that can be shaken when you can dwell in an unshakeable kingdom where God reigns and you are seated with Christ Jesus as heir to the throne? Will you despise your royalty in heaven for some political feud? I pray not. Are you saved by grace or politics?
I understand that you are trying to keep America safe from ill ideologies and people hoping to destroy it, but who can save a nation except for by God. If America looks up to God, won’t she be saved? You have tried by your power and political strategy, and they have failed. Scriptures say that “for God watches how people live; he sees everything they do. no darkness is thick enough to hide the wicked from his eyes.”
Since you love America so much, how often do you pray for her and her leaders? Do you only pray for leaders who uphold the same ideologies as you? Don’t you think your prayers are efficacious? You can’t save America from ruin; only God can. See how the prophet Isaiah describes the one you worship?
“For all the nations of the world are but a drop in the bucket. They are nothing more than dust on the scales. He picks up the whole earth as though it were a grain of sand.” This is the God you are called to worship; now leave trivial things and follow him and his instructions. You are called for extraordinary things.
Finally, my brothers and sister in Christ, the bible says, ” for Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people, when in his own body on the cross, He broke down the wall of hostility, and together as one, Christ reconciled both groups”. The hatred between us was put to death through His death; let us leave it dead. Treat one another with love and kindness.
Yes, you can and would disagree on political issues, but let love be your lead and firm foundation. Of what use is love if it is only towards those you agree with? While you disagree in politics, remember that Christ is preparing a place for us. This very earth will pass away.
I pray you get along with one another, remembering that many don’t have the luxury of freedom you enjoy. Many Christians in Asia, the middle East, and Africa; where I write from, are persecuted for the same faith you freely express in America. Always put them in your prayers. We are looking forward to the day when we will join the host of heaven to worship our great GOD. Amen
Saved by grace not politics! 📌
Wonderful letter, Apostle Kelechi.
