Time to Stand Up for Our Faith

It seems most Catholics don’t care about the attacks on our faith by popular politicians. The Obama’s administration attempt to force Catholic institutions to violate our religion by requiring us to pay for contraception was mostly ignored by all but a few pro-life activists. Now Hillary Clinton insists religions must drop their opposition to abortion. Where is the outrage? Why are we silent? Isn’t our church important? Don’t we love our faith?
Don’t we understand that our Church was founded by Jesus Christ and has withstood attempts in every century to corrupt our faith? We didn’t let the heretics, Martin Luther, Calvin or Henry VIII change the church. We stayed true to the Church established by the Apostles. Why would we let the likes of President Obama or Hillary Clinton change the Church now?
As a Church we are called to help people to follow the narrow way to heaven. We can’t diverge from the truth taught us and handed down generation to generation. All of us including the Pope and bishops will stand before Almighty God and account for their stewardship. We have to stay true.
We must understand that contraception and abortion is only the tip of the iceberg. Too many Catholics find these issues irrelevant to their lives but these won’t be the only changes that society will insist on. Open the door; give in and the floodgates will open. We will have to change everything. Nothing will be wrong, sin will no longer exist. Our faith may make you feel good but will it help you enter Heaven. Our Church will no longer be recognizable, not even to God.
Take a look at what is happening in other denominations. As the mainstream denominations change with the times people are leaving them in droves for evangelical churches. Many Anglicans are becoming Catholic and the Episcopal Church has split in two.
We have to stay true to the faith Jesus Christ gave us. Now is the time to stand up. Now is the time to fight!
