So recently the Brandon High School band was banned from playing a traditional hymn during half time at a football game. They were going to play the tune, no words but, what happened was so much more powerful. You know I’ve been in several situations where God has taken a bad situation and turned it into something so good. He has used the bad intentions to strengthen us, to show us his love, his grace and his mercy. When he was finished I had no doubt in my mind that God was in control the entire time. That he had used my situation to put my enemies to rest. I really feel that this one event, this one statement is going to resinate for a long time, the public will remember that this town had heart, this town had strength and moreover this town has had enough and was not going to stand by and take this judges orders.
“A lone voice began to sing the forbidden song” Then sings my soul, my saviour God to thee, how great thou art…
Who does this judge think he is, who do these people think they are!! I’m so tired of “O this offends me or O that offends me” CRAP!!! We are supposed to have religious freedom in the Constituiton of the United States! A country that was founded on good Christian Values has sure fallen by the wayside! When are we all going to stand up and say we’ve had enough? When are we going to stand up for what WE believe in? We call ourselves Christians but, we’ve been silent. We’ve been sitting on the sidelines letting the non-believers win! It’s time for us to take a stand, it’s time for us to fight! It’s time for us to say WE BELIEVE!
I’m so very proud of this small town, a town who had the guts to say WE BELIEVE in unison. The guts to send a message to the government, the politics saying oh yeah! OH NO! We are not going to stand by and allow you to strip us of our rights. We refuse to be silenced!
I believe this is a big step in the War on Faith in the right direction. We wonder what has happened to society, to our youth to our government to our country. What happened is that we’ve removed the backbone of the roots that this nation was founded upon-God! God has been our strength, he’s been our guide, he’s been our rock. We’ve gotten so wrapped up in things that we want, things that mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. Material things…. We are all so busy trying to buy more stuff, that we’ve lost sight of the most important thing in the world…God.
I emplore you take a stand, take a stand for your Christian faith, take a stand for your Country! Take a stand for your children, your grandchildren, your neices and nephews. We must take a stand and let our voice be heard or we will be silenced as Christians. The war on faith is real people, it’s very real and it’s here to stay. Question is are you ready to stand and fight and let your voice be heard.
Our father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven give us this day our daily bread forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us lead us not into temptation but, deliver us from evil for thine art the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever amen.
