Recently the nation has been shocked and disgusted by all the allegations of sexual harassment against movie moguls and politicians. We should be disgusted with such behavior, especially among people who are leaders in our culture. But I am shocked that any Christian would be surprised by these revelations.
For years, many of our politicians and people in Hollywood have been systematically dismantling any traditional sense of morality in our nation. The passing of laws against traditional marriage and the total immorality portrayed in our TV shows and movies have come out of these people’s hearts.
The Bible says, “As he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Prov. 23:7). These people’s actions, evident in their political stands and immorality, should tell anyone who’s paying attention to what was in the hearts of these people. For this reason, I’m not shocked when those who promote immorality act immorally.
One owner of a large television network has openly said that one of his goals is to change the Judeo-Christian ethics of America. This has effectively been accomplished with the US Supreme Court’s approval of same-sex marriage and society’s “tolerance” towards every type of behavior that the Bible calls sin.
John Witherspoon, a direct descendant of John Knox, also a former president of Princeton University and a signer of our Declaration of Independence said:
“That he is the best friend to American liberty, who is most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion, and who sets himself with the greatest firmness to bear down profanity and immorality of every kind. Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I scruple not to call him an enemy of his country.“
I agree wholeheartedly. Those in the media and those politicians who have attacked everything godly in this nation should be considered enemies of this country. They should never have been given these positions of leadership. We as a nation—including Christians—put these people in power. It’s easy to understand how politicians need our support to gain power; we vote them into office. But the same thing happens in Hollywood. Every time we pay to see an ungodly movie or pay for a subscription to their television channels, we are essentially “voting” for them. We keep them in power. What we need to do is to stop! If we stopped supporting them, they would not be able to continue.
Too many Christians have been “fiddling while Rome burned.” We have focused “on our four and no more” and have not been players on a larger scale. It’s past time for us to stand up and be the salt and light the Lord called us to be (Matt. 5:13-14).
I urge you to think about what I’m saying. We must get involved. Christians are still the single largest group in this nation, and we can make a difference if we take a stand against this present culture. In the next few months, you will be hearing more specific ways that you can let your voice be heard.

I’m taking a stand. I ask you to join me.
