Why aren't Christians complaining to their congressmen, and senators?

Those of you who want to do so are welcome to do it. As for me, I'm done complaining to them. I have made the decision to exclude the government from my planning meetings. They will no longer be consulted on when I and other Believers chose to gather in a home or any other place. I will preach, teach, exhort, rebuke, witness and minister where I want to, where I need to and most importantly, where I believe God sends me.

If I do not preach, it will be because I chose not to do so. If I do not hold a Bible study in my home, it will be because I chose not to do so. If I am forbidden to hold Bible studies, I will hold them every night of the week and twice on Sunday. And I need no permit, nor will I seek one.

I wish them no ill will, but my attitude towards them is "You do what you have to do, and I'll do what I have to do." The spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet. The government has no vote in the matter.

If it was a Catholic catechism class or a Koran study, it would be no problem.

This is a violation of the California state constitution and the US Constitution and they should file a civil rights complaint with the FBI. This is a violation of their free practice of religion and right to peaceable assembly. It bothers me for them, but not for me, because I renounced my citizenship in this hellholthe day my mother was pulled, screaming, from her own home and confined to a "nursing home" against her will and she and I lost our home and everything she and dad and I worked for.

Every single freedom we have lost in this hellhole is because the sheep let them take them. A constitution is only as good as the people willing to stand for it and resist to stop it's infringement. We have a choice now of boycotting any economic product coming out of the state of California because unless a hue and a cry is raised, Memorial day of 2010 will be flowers on the graves of soldiers who died in vain, and on the grave of your Constitutional RIGHT to free practice of religion.

Fundamentalists in America have a choice of holding Bible study in your homes openly or secretly in the sewers. Thr Pilgrims fled England, we have nowhere to flee to.

Grace and peace

Tony

Boy, you know Christians have been saying it's the end forever. But how can it be very far off? Pretty soon they are going to be breaking down the door at midnight dragging us away.

That's OK, Jesus promised to come and take us away. It can't be far off.

Winman, I don't want to burst your security bubble, but, what makes you think we won't suffer any persecutions, or tribulations in this life, especially since the U.S. has been angering God for a long time now, being in love with many, many sins: abortion, pornography, taking Bible out of schools, banning school prayer, homosexual marriage, filth and degradation.
I do NOT believe for a minute that we who are born again will be raptured out before persecutions begin.
Why didn't Jesus take Paul, and Stephen, and for that matter, Shadrach, Mesach, and Abednego out before they suffered for their witness in Jesus Christ?
Stand FIRM brother! Put the whole armor of God on, hide the word of God in your heart, and learn to use the sword of the Spirit.

When you said Jesus promised to come and take us away, it can't be far off, I thought you meant we would be taken up before persecutions arise.
A lot of Christians are not willing to think about the US becoming a non-freedom of religion country. They keep saying Jesus will rapture us up, before any of this happens.
Sorry if I misunderstood you.
I do hope my reply helped others, though, who might be weak and anxious about their future here.
