Here’s what’s next in the war against progressive culture in our nation.  Most Americans are familiar with the many cases of Christian business owners, who are bakers and cake makers, being asked to make wedding cakes for homosexual couples.  Upon denial of the request the couple then sues the baker and in most cases the local authorities agree with the couple and a large fine is levied or the business owner is forced to close.  If the Christian baker has the resources he or she can appeal and in the cases that have gone further each one has been reversed and the higher courts rule in favor of the Christian business owner’s right to freedom of religion and expression.  The process involved has left many American business owners in debt as they seek to protect their business and good name.  Judging by the many cases reported and the specific reoccurrence of cases filed on individuals, it appears that this is a targeted effort by the left to wear down these individuals and bankrupt them out of existence for no other reason than they disagree with their lifestyle. 

Efforts do not stop at Christian bakers.  Apparently the plan is to go after any business that disagrees with the lifestyle the other side wants to force society to embrace.  Yesterday, CBN reported that a Brazilian immigrant to Canada has been forced to shut down her body waxing business after she refused to wax the male genitals of a transgender activist.  The sentence gives you all the details you need but the story is found here:   https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/cwn/2019/july/woman-forced-to-close-business-after-refusing-to-wax-genitals-of-trans-person-15-others-could-be-next

There is no end to the demands of those who do not wish to pursue a Biblical worldview but force you to accept their worldview.  Local courts are deciding in their favor meaning those who wish to live out a Biblical worldview can no longer coexist in the same space as those who do not wish to follow the same lifestyle.  Given, the latest example happened in Canada but it will not be long until they try this in our country.  Now, more than ever, Christians must be actively engaged in their community.  Courts have ruled in our favor but it is unfortunate that those wins come after lengthy appeal.  Individuals are no longer able to purse the American Dream and the rights our Constitution guarantees out of fear of media persecution and prosecution by the local courts.   

Make no mistake, this group will not be satisfied until all forms of Christian identification are destroyed and traditional individual rights are diminished to unrecognizable levels.  For the side that screams “tolerance” so often it appears the only ones who are safe are the ones who go along with every godless self-expression they come up with. Christians are called by God to a higher standard of living.  We are to find every way possible to live at peace with others but when all ways are exhausted we must use what’s available to defend ourselves and our rights.  Not only for today but for the generation to come.  

They are darkened in their understanding and alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts. Having lost all sense of shame, they have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity, with a craving for more.  Ephesians 4:18-19
