I'm sorry brother Neil, but this is simply the wrong attitude to have. I know there is a spirit amongst some here that has romantic notions about being a persecuted church, and many somehow view this as a key to bringing revival and a mature church.
Atheism and communism go hand in hand. We should not be surprised at things like this. Difficult times are ahead for the Church of Jesus Christ in this country.
To be perfectly honest, I think and feel that I am so far from God because of organized church and all the doo, doo that is attached to it.Not that I would want to romantisize being percuted.I think that is what I need to get in the place where God can finally break me, for His glory.Underground churches where I would finally take my lazy self off the t.v. and cry out to God for help finally, finally is what He would probably say...to a wretch like me.If God doesn't show this country mercy and bring us back to a place where we will cry out to him day and night. We are going to be lost....I don't even feel like im one of the remnant....God help us before we loose heart altogether..Lord please convict, and convert Obama.And this country. Starting with the House of God.

without chastening were nothing but a redheaded step child.
