Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
A group of speakers at an event celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner says that American Christianity is under serious threat.
The event, held at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, featured speakers like former Gov. Mike Huckabee, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and his father, Family Research Center head Tony Perkins and other leaders. The event was to celebrate the importance of Christianity in the national anthem and the importance of Christianity in American history.
Senator Cruz said that religious liberty is endangered not just abroad but at home.
“If you’re litigating against nuns,” Cruz said, referring to the struggle of Little Sisters of the Poor against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate, “you’ve probably done something wrong.”
“Our land needs healing,” Cruz continued. “When this country was founded, it was founded on the radical concept that our rights don’t come from kings, queens or governments, but our rights come from Almighty God.”
Former Gov. Huckabee said that Christians shouldn’t just accept that our government is ungodly.
“Is it time for us to stop complaining about what is, and start believing what will be if God’s people on their faces in humility and brokenness will once again ask for His hand of providence to envelope this great land of ours,” he said.
