They told Aaron, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt–we don’t know what has happened to him!’ Acts 7:40
Having viewed this video and listening to this speaker who runs a Christian college (Liberty University) and is proud to declare that the concealed weapon in his back pants pocket is his protection and safety proves that he does not have faith and trust in the Christ, he supposedly teaches and preaches about.
As far as I am concerned, the only thing this Christian is proving is that America’s molten gods are guns.
With the likes of proclaimed, “conservative evangelists,” like Falwell and Franklin Graham, they actually don’t live the life which Christ lived and died for.
After reading news articles about conservative Christians buying guns for protection, I thought of one particular Bible story that is found in the Book of Exodus when Moses went into the mountain to meet with God while leaving his brother Aaron in charge.
And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights. Exodus 24:18
As the story goes, Moses was with God for a period of time and the people were in a state of fear, believing within themselves that their lives would soon be destroyed without having something to replace Moses who was the one who God had chosen to lead them out of slavery (in Egypt) after four hundred years.
Aaron, knowing and seeing the power of God, nevertheless, paid heed to the cries and hysteria of the Israelites with their demands to have a god they could see, rather, than a God they could trust and believe in.
Now, if you would but for a moment consider what is taking place right now in America, we are no different from the Israelites.
The urgency to run out and buy guns to protect ourselves is not about the rights of bearing arms as it is about the distrust that the God who protected America in the past will not protect her now or in the future.
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. Exodus 32:1
Who would ever have imagine that America’s molten gods are guns.
This is what happens when the people of God are led down a dark path with fear, mistrust, bigotry, racial hatred and religious intolerance.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3
