“Freedom cannot be exported to a nation that has no marketplace for the Gospel.“ -David Chilton
Freedom is rooted in the Christian worldview. There’s no denying this fact. As Christians our faith in Christ frees us from the chains of slavery to sin in a wicked, corrupt, and fallen world.
History shows us that Christians are the forefathers and defenders of all types of liberty including but not limited to freedom of speech, religious freedom, private property, and the creation of freest nation in the history of the world: the United States of America.
Bible-believing Christians have always been defenders of the right to say “no.” We have a sacred duty as Christians to dissent against all forms of evil, wickedness, and terror be it from kings, demagogues, tyrants, or even from within the church itself.
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17
The history of Protestantism is rooted in dissent. Dissent is rooted in the desire to preserve liberty and live authentically according to God’s Word. Dissent, preserving liberty and living authentically according to God’s Word are all impossible without the freedom of speech. The word dissenter, from the Latin dissentire, “to disagree,” originates from the Protestants who separated from the Anglican church of England. More generally speaking it is “one who disagrees in matters of opinion and belief.”
Dissent requires freedom of speech to exist. Without it, tyrants quickly work to make any form of dissent illegal. We see this at work even today with the Communist Chinese Party, which treats Christian dissenters with contempt and disdain. Unfortunately we also see it in the United States of America, a Christian nation that has been subverted by a handful of secular ruling class elites that demonize Christians at every turn.
“When the Puritans left England, they did not wander over the earth; God brought them into a land and made them rulers, and though the foundation they built has greatly eroded, it is still very much with us after 300 years. What will people 300 years from now say of the accomplishments of today’s shallow, retreatist evangelicalism?” -David Chilton
From Martin Luther, to the Puritans, to the Founding Fathers: Bible-believing Christians have and always will be the holiest crusaders and defenders of freedom. The spiritual battle of today is no different than the one Martin Luther or the Founding Fathers faced in their time.
Luther stared in the face of the church at arguably its peak of power in world history and dared to say: “no.”
The Founding Fathers stared in the face of England and its King at arguably their peak of power in world history and dared to say: “no.”
Gab is staring into the face of Silicon Valley, the mainstream media, billionaire oligarchs, and the political establishment at arguably their peak of power in world history and daring to say: “no.” We’ve built a digital Noah’s Ark to escape the tyrannical flood of censorship from the Silicon Valley elite and those in power have spent years trying to destroy us for it.<attachment-2.png>
Christians must once again become Dissenters in today’s world, but in order to do so they must stop being wimps and rise up to the battle God is calling them to fight.
“The unbiblical idea of “spirituality” is that the truly “spiritual” man is the person who is sort of “non-physical,” who doesn’t get involved in “earthly” things, who doesn’t work very much or think very hard, and who spends most of his time meditating about how he’d rather be in heaven. As long as he’s on earth, though, he has one main duty in life: Get stepped on for Jesus.”
The “spiritual” man, in this view, is a wimp. A Loser. But at least he’s a Good Loser. The teaching of the Bible is very different. When the Bible uses the term Spiritual, it is generally speaking of the Holy Spirit (which is why I use a capital S). To be Spiritual is to be guided and motivated by the Holy Spirit. It means obeying His commands as recorded in the Scriptures. The Spiritual man is not someone who floats in midair and hears eerie voices. The Spiritual man is the man who does what the Bible says (Rom. 8:4-8).”
This means, therefore, that we are supposed to get involved in life. God wants us to apply Christian standards everywhere, in every area. Spirituality does not mean retreat and withdrawal from life; it means dominion. The basic Christian confession of faith is that Jesus is Lord (Rom. 10:9-10) – Lord of all things, in heaven and on earth. As Lord, He is to be glorified in every area (Rom. 11:36). In terms of Christian Spirituality, in terms of God’s requirements for Christian action in every area of life, there is no reason for retreat.” – David Chilton
The time for emasculated, retreatist, “tolerant” Christianity is over.
We will not tolerate our destruction and persecution in our own countries.
The time for being Christian in name only is over.
Practice what you preach and live it. Lead by example.
The time for attending a church that compromises on the Gospel and the work and life of Jesus Christ is over.
Get yourself in a church that glorifies God instead of glorifying the world.
The time for being a Christian wimp is over.
Now is the time for a masculine, patriarchic, crusader “Jesus is King” Christian revival.
All heathen cultures have been statist and tyrannical, for a people who reject God will surrender themselves and their property to a dictator. (1 Sam. 8:7-20) -David Chilton
