TIME FOR REFORMATION 

martin_luther__grant_the_holy_spirit____by_nixseraph-d6z2y00

In a way we’re faced with a similar dilemma to what Martin Luther encountered almost 500 years ago before the reformation of the church.  He was troubled by the conflicting teachings, the false doctrine, the malpractice and the inability for the common man to read the Latin Bible.

Today we have a government that grows  more corrupt and controlling by the minute and we have no voice in what’s happening with the laws.  Our choices are difficult as well and we are no longer a nation of free thinkers.

Martin Luther lived in a time when the printing press was just coming into being and it allowed for the mass production of information about what was happening, along with the ability to print Bibles in the language of the people.

Today our cup runs over with tools for communication. Now we look to wiki leaks for our news.  The media seems to be in the pockets of those running our country and our people have become apathetic.

What we can say and do about our concerns for what’s happening with our elected officials may soon be a thing of the past, but in the meantime we can still speak out against the evil that continues to infest the walls of Congress, The Senate and the White House.  If we keep silent, we are like the people who were being led like sheep astray in Luther’s time.

I have this picture in my mind of our citizens being herded up and forced to eat the right food, turn in their guns and accept the fact that this new health care stuff is going to be the answer to all their problems.

Someone once said, to control a country, you must first take away their food and weapons. Then take their health care and you can do anything you want with them.

I pray it never comes to this.  We need to be vigilant – not only against the foreign terrorists, but also the terrorists within our borders. I love my country and I’m proud of all the service men and women who daily put their lives on the line to defend it.

It’s time for a complete overhaul and I would love to have someone come up with an idea on how to do it. It might start with just one person, like a Martin Luther, who refused to tolerate the tyranny of Rome and the lies the people were being fed.

Once the seed is planted, the harvest will come and hopefully we can again be proud to be Americans. Luther had the printing press

To help him get the Word out.  We have the Internet.  What an amazing tool it can be I. The right hands.

It’s time for another Reformation!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Be careful calling for revolutions and reformations. They don’t always turn out as planned.
    And a question: are you calling for a return to a ‘christian’ nation?

      I have always commended our founders for being wise enough to establish the first amendment – separating church and state. I don’t want my church running the government nor my government doing the same with my church. They are two separate entities and should remain so. I am not for revolution either. What I’m trying to say is that I fear, we as a people have become apathetic. We are being led by corrupt people. We don’t seem to have a choice, even when our voting privileges are still in tact, we cant even be sure that the vote is uncorrupted. We need to be actively involved citizens and find a way to renew our founding principles. A Christian nation is no longer a term for America. President Obama himself stated so in the beginning of his presidency.

      The defiance we see in the streets for reform social issues is nothing but angry mob mentality. True reform comes when people discuss and act upon the issues at hand.

      Martin Luther was a Catholic monk who saw the corruption of the Renaissance Catholic church. His 95 theses state his issues and expressed the reformation that needed to be made not only in the selling of indulgences, but the true message of the Gospel. In his case, the church was the government. He was not alone in his actions. The Protestant reformation resulted in his actions. The Gospel of grace given by God to those who believe in Him is now available to all people. The freedom of that truth has released many from the need to punish themselves for past sins. Jesus paid the price completely.
