It was a terrible thing to see what occurred at our nation's capital this Wednesday. The violence and destruction was despicable and has no place in our nation. Those who broke into the Capitol should be found, arrested, and charged. We as Christians should whole-heartedly condemn the actions of those who rioted and brought about such destruction and violence. Just as we should have condemned the riots and violence from last summer, as thousands of people rioted and destroyed nearly $2 billion worth of property. Just as we should have condemned the assault on police officers and police departments. Just as we should condemn the violent murder of nearly 3,000 babies every day in the United States. All such selfish violence and destruction should be condemned by all followers of Christ. We as Christians must not be hypocritical, condemning the actions of those we disagree with while remaining silent regarding the violent and destructive actions of those we support. I call on Christians to be consistent - no more hypocrisy. Do not defend what happened in Washington, D.C. And do not defend what happened in Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, or what happens every day in abortion. Defend righteousness, justice, and holiness; defend the truth; and stand for what God says is holy and stand against what God says is unholy. Only then can we be united, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
