We American Christians have difficulty accepting this fact and often misunderstand our role.
We need to:
- Keep fighting for good laws but realize the majority will rule.
- Keep living and sharing God's values but realize we'll be in the minority.
- Pray more and complain less.
But this is no reason for despair.
We can take courage from past saints who also faced opposition (Hebrews 12:1-2) and kept sharing God's message in spite of it.
Jesus warned us that people would treat us the same way they treated Him (John 15: 20), so let's take up our spiritual weapons and keep fighting the good fight (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Even though many people won't listen, some will!
