Time to take a stand

When a preacher is ordered to omit the name of Jesus, it’s the perfect time to preach it.

I’m not talking about the crude, bombastic guy on the corner shouting “turn or burn” at cars.  I’m talking about the mild mannered chaplain who works for the police department being told that naming Jesus offends unbelievers.  That guy is being told to take the name of Christ and sit on it.

And yet it’s true that the heathen are offended by the true God.  That’s why they rage and take counsel together against the Lord and his anointed (Psa 2:1-2).  But the Lord’s anointed is their only hope, and that’s exactly why we mustn’t back away from humbly insisting that there is one and only one true God.  This God was manifest in the flesh and went by the name of Jesus.  This is why Peter said there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

So, preachers, delete the name of Jesus, and you have no sermon, no message, no nothing.  Just empty yakking with no power to save.  Back away from Jesus and you back into perdition.  And that’s not because some snake-handling wild man claimed it.  Jesus Christ himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (Jn 14:6)

To offer a prayer as if Jesus Christ had never said this would be an act of treason.

  1. Ugh.

    Sad. Disgusting… Dangerous. But what a blatant confirmation of the power in the name of Jesus Christ †
