Also strong in faith

To the Editor:

Thank you, Bill Hurlbert, for your letter to the editor (“Strong in faith,” Aug. 24).

You and Richard Perlick and all the others who have written on behalf of our God and creator Jesus Christ have been the inspiration behind my letter.

We must stand behind our beliefs and readily defend them. We need to shout to the heavens for God’s help. It is not news that our once beautiful country is rapidly deteriorating. God never should have been taken from our schools. Christ should not have been removed from Christmas. It is one nation under God. Yet we remain silent. We need to verbalize our thoughts in a positive way. It would be devastating to live in a country where we are not allowed our religious freedom.

Perhaps now is the right time for us, as Christians, to come together and voice our praises to God, our Lord and Redeemer, while asking Him to watch over us and lead us from all evil.

Hurlbert called it when he wrote “anti-Christians are very vocal about their beliefs.” Jesus Christ is the son of the living God who had created us and will be with us forever in eternity. Let’s take action now and pray for our faith to increase, and, above all, speak out on behalf of our savior, Jesus Christ.
