The false religion of Secularism has scheduled its Mission Trip for November 6, 2018, Election Day. Progressive liberals – who worship abortion, same-sex marriage, gun control, euthanasia, big government, transgender bathrooms, and coercive redistribution of wealth – intend for secularists to run the table for the next millennium.

March for Our Lives organizers estimated that some 800,000 protesters attended the gun-control spectacle in Washington, D.C. The march was a dry run for liberal’s get-out-the-vote effort in 2018. A more accurate name would have been ‘March for Your Guns’.

Left-wing celebrities came out in droves: George and Amal Clooney, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Sheryl Crow, Jennifer Hudson, Cher, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, Amy Poehler, and dozens more. This seems to be as good a time as any: Dear Celebrities: No One Cares What You Think

The logical question is, who is funding this dress rehearsal for Election Day 2018? And how were they able to organize and mobilize such an impressive crowd on such short notice? Are we supposed to believe that kids who can’t rent a car, buy a six-pack of beer – or vote – will have the time, organizational skills, and prodigious bank accounts to pull off a march like that? Only 10% of the marchers were students, the Washington Post reported.

The organizers announced that “George and Amal Clooney, Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Oprah Winfrey all pledged to donate $500,000.” And that “The gun control advocacy group, Everytown for Gun Safety, helped the #NeverAgain students plan and promote March for Our Lives.”

“Everytown [for Gun Safety] is a nonprofit group formed in 2014 that advocates for gun control. Everytown was founded and originally funded by Michael Bloomberg, who gave $50 million to the group when it first launched. In June 2016, Everytown had 130 employees, The Washington Post reported. It’s located in Manhattan and spent $37 million in 2014, including $4.6 million on political campaign activities, $3.5 million on advertising, and $1.7 million on lobbying. Move On and Planned Parenthood also supported the events.”

In hindsight, it’s easy to deduce how Planned Parenthood could afford to help underwrite the March 24th, March for Our Lives demonstration. Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan, the day before, forked out $500M to Planned Parenthood in the Omnibus Bill – FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS’ HARD-EARNED TAX DOLLARS. Republicans need new leadership.

The Republicans took control of the Senate in 2014, electing Mitch McConnell as the Majority Leader. Then Speaker John Boehner and newly elected Leader McConnell loudly proclaimed for everyone to hear: “We WILL repeal Obamacare.” Not to be outdone, following his election as Speaker, Paul Ryan blared, “GOP will defund Planned Parenthood.”

Still, 60M baby ‘lives’ have been eradicated by something clearly much more lethal than an assault rifle – forceps and suction cups.

But 17 year-old media boy wonder David Hogg wants his 2nd Amendment rights removed, eliciting a response by Pastor Rob McCoy, Thousand Oaks City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem:

“I’m fascinated that we’re watching students march in America to have their rights removed. They’re not educated, they’re indoctrinated. They’re marching to have their rights removed and they’re decrying that the children need to be protected. But the same ones that are crying to protect the children are the ones that are saying it’s a constitutional right to abort your baby – and that’s not in the Constitution. Yet, there is a very clear picture of the 2nd Amendment and they’re saying it needs to be repealed…it’s just odd, take my rights, take my ability to defend myself?

“And now [that] we’re going into bondage, because of the implosion morally of our country, we want to blame inanimate objects. We have to start blaming the pencil for falling test scores …”

Let’s be fair to left-wing celebrities, they engage … while half of Evangelical Christians are not even registered to vote, meaning they’ve never voted. Is it any surprise that pagan Secularism succeeded in taking over America’s once Biblically-based culture?

Evangelical pastors and pews are in a ‘civil government disconnect’. There is no way that pastors would ever forsake their pulpits on Easter Sunday, Christmas or Christmas Eve. Yet a good number of them would be just as likely to schedule an Israel Tour the first week of November (Election Day – Tuesday, November 6, 2018), or a Mission Trip to Mexico, or take furlough for the month of November 2018. Mustering and marshaling parishioners to the voting booth doesn’t appear to occupy their minds. “War is politics with blood, and politics is war without blood,” said Mao Zedong.

The Book of Joshua categorically demands “unreserved obedience as the condition of God putting forth His power against our enemies and bringing us into the enjoyment of our inheritance.” Moreover, “we cannot enter our inheritance without fighting.” [1]

If Christians in America begin to fill churches for Election Night Watch Parties – because pastors and pews are invested in elections – they will change, and save, America.

It is wonderful news that Gideons and Rahabs are now beginning to stand.
