Accountability and Freedom

Rev. Samuel West

Rev. Samuel West

For over 40 years I’ve discovered that people calling themselves Christians are seldom followers of Jesus Christ. I’ve seen more of a propensity for social networking and compromise than following the examples set in scripture. Most of today’s churches are examples of apathy and apostasy that enable the wicked to plunder the ignorant for the benefit of the corporation. The revolutionary pulpit of America has been destroyed and replaced with a spiritual dung heap largely due to 26 USC 501(c)3 and the love of money.

While it may appear that I’m singling out Christians, it is only because a vast majority of Americans still claim to be a part of the Christian faith. It was the pulpit of Jesus Christ that fueled the flames of the American Revolution 250 years ago by teaching the biblical principles of liberty, self-reliance, justice, and independence. Today the apostasy of the churches are contributing to undoing what the revolutionary pulpit inspired; so as you can see there is much the pulpits of America have to answer for in the context of history.

Most people don’t believe in or see the Creator in the same way I do; we all have a natural right to worship him or not as our conscience dictates. When we’re a free people there cannot be coercion to conform to some “societal” norm; we can come together and discuss our differences and even come to an understanding regarding the things of God, but I believe that can only happen in a spirit of respect and understanding towards one another. I believe people who are brow-beaten, terrorized, or otherwise coerced to accept a belief system do not truly believe or love what they’re forced to accept; our Creator desires that people love him as well as one another freely and voluntarily; since he loved us enough to allow us the freedom of that choice.

In my opinion, the world would be a much happier place if we learned to respect and love one another in spite of our differences; we have much to share with one another that we’ve learned throughout history. Perhaps by learning the lessons of the past together we can move forward and avoid repeating the worst of it today and tomorrow.

My life has been anything but normal in my years upon this earth.

Now that my family is grown I am back on the road revisiting it anew with a more mature outlook tempered with the wisdom that comes from experience.

  1. Accurate observations, Thomas Mick!

    The fact that our drift away from genuine Christianity has been a purposeful, manipulated one is one of the most disgusting features of our failing society.

    And we continue to finance it and offer our children up to it.

    May I ask you consider this first please.
    The world would be much happier of governments were held accountable for their atrocities upon their own people. The people live more in fear of law agents, judges and politicians than they do of the common criminal on the street. The various cultures and faiths of the world would still have issues as that is just the nature of the human animal, however, without the continued interference and antagonistic acts of governments.

    Start at the root of the problem…..governments that fan the flame.
