American Christians are more important than what they probably think

    Please while reading my post, remember that I'm Italian and English is not my mother tongue, be patient. Thank You :(

    [​IMG] Maybe is because I met the Lord thank to an American Missionary in Italy since 1958, and most of my Christian books are written by Americans that I buy through the Internet. But in any case I must say that America is the Christian spiritual reserve of the World. [​IMG]
    American Christian must understand that they must stay faithful to Scriptures and doctrines, much more than any other country in the world, because if America falls spiritually, there in not another society in the world that can spiritually lead towards the witnessing of Christ.
    Also You must understand that if American Christian are important for the World, they will be attacked with any means by most people, for example European Media are mostly left winged and are very critic with anything done by the USA, there is a subtle but constant work to criticise American choices and behaviour. This on my opinion has a spiritual root, Europe is much more corrupted than USA, less available to self critic, more corrupted about financial and moral aspect of the day to day life, any aspect of politics, financial world, show business and fashion, is more similar to the Mafia mentality than free enterprise and expression of personal capacities, people is progressing because can became a “favour” to get back another “favour”, instead of giving the possibilities to express one selves in a free society.
    Upon the dollar there is the message: “in God we trust”, in the forming European Constitution they didn’t want to mention even that Europe has a Christian root.
    Substantially this is an encouragement of mine to my American brothers and sisters to stick to the Bible teaching, to not accept criticism because too close to Bible’s doctrines, to work specially on young people because one day they must carry on the weight of witnessing to the whole world that Jesus is alive and is coming back. Some days I get depressed on how Italian people that I know is willing to go to Hell, more than once I cried thinking on how many friends and relatives are lost and far from the truth of the Bible, I’m trying to point the attention to the fact that Jesus may come back today, that most of anybody’s illness of the soul is a spiritual problem, is the lack of a personal relation with Jesus, but in Rome, the Pope’s tradition during the past centuries has devastated most ways to speak about Jesus, and 99% of the population thinks that Christianity is equal to Vatican.
    Once I went to the most powerful chain of Bookstores in Italy “Feltrinelli” to propose if they could distribute my book “The Plan of God” (In Italian “Il Piano di Dio”), I said: “look, is a good book, people that has read it said is beautiful, is different from any other book you have in this huge store”, the Manager answered: “for all writers their book is always a good book! And after all I don’t really care about God! Please go away I have no time to waste for you and you book!” (I keep praying for him, maybe one day he will turn to Jesus).
    To another friend when I talked about “The Plan of God” he said: “sorry friend….. I’ve got my own plan!” (His name is Giulio Cesare, I keep pray for him).
    Yes I know my friend, I finish always talking about what I write, but for me writing is like the breathing of my soul, and all of my friends I grew up with have read all of my books about The Lord, none of them has surrended to Christ ………. Yet.
    But I know that my reward, and the result of what I do for the Lord upon this earth, it will be visible in heaven. Not here, not today.
    Also you American brothers and sisters, the work you do for the rest of the world You must know that is important, is visible today at miles and miles away, American Christian communities are important at any level for the whole world, with missions, books and prayers, if you take away, spiritually speaking, the USA and Canada, from the World, there is very little testimony of Jesus left, and if individually an American Christian gives room to compromise, is a little victory for Satan to render the USA similar to the rest of the world…….

    thank you

    zaderk, thank you for one of the most beautiful posts I've ever read on this Board & I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You have blessed me.

    It is true, America, with all her faults and corruption and people who even live here who want to deny the Spiritual Roots of America, that America is what you say, though changing quickly to a more secular nation.

    But there are plenty of us Christians in America who still believe God's Word is true and that Jesus is coming back soon and we must continue to be the Light in this world of darkness.

    I will pray for your friends and loved ones that you patiently witness to for the Lord. You may get tired of the struggle, but you will never know (in this life) how many seeds of Truth you planted and how many of those seeds took root.

    Your post was like a breath of fresh air on a Spring Day to me (and there is nothing wrong with your English, either, okay?). [​IMG]

    God Bless You, My Brother,

    zaderk,

    Please let me second SheEagle's post. That was beautiful and both humbling and inspiring. As you know, there are many in the U.S. who recoil at the thought that we live in a blessed land, and who would root rip and branch any Christian influences from our government and even any Christian influence ON government. Some of them are even Christians (I'm in no position to question their spiritual state). That there are others like you in other countries who still think that America and American Christians can still be a light unto the world is encouraging.

    I just wish liberals weren't embarrassed to take such a stand.

    Your comments were very heart warming.
    America is under attack, no, not by bombs and soldiers, but by creeping liberalism, imorality, indifference and compromise. More and more are calling evil good and good evil. All we can do is to pray and speak out for the Lord.
    God bless you in yor work there.
