Christians who substitute prayer for obedience

Most Evangelical Christians today are silent and non-judgemental and non-confrontational in the face of evil i.e abortion, homosexuality, feminism, adultery etc.

Some resort to prayer and that is all they do. I once heard a quote that might help some to find their courage. It goes something like this, “You can’t do more than pray until you’ve prayed, but you can do more than pray after you’ve prayed.”

Here is a similar quote from the famous missionary C.T.Studd,
“We Christians too often substitute prayer for playing the game. Prayer is good: but when it is used as a substitute for obedience, it is nothing but a blatant hypocrisy, a despicable pharisaism.” end of quote.

Where the battle rages most fiercely, the Christian should be found fighting the good fight of faith, and today, the forces of evil are intent on replacing the laws of God with the evil laws of man which call evil good and good evil.

Christians should remember that “No enactment of men can be considered law unless it conforms to the law of God.” quote from William Blackstone.

We Christians are duty bound to oppose evil laws and refuse to obey them because the Bible reminds us that we are to obey God rather than men.

  1. Dear Mr and Mrs White

    You are so right. I had a Pastor who tolerated fornication and adultery in the congregation and whose solution to those that objected was to invite them to pray for the offending couple ! How obscene is that ? A total blasphemy of the Word of God. The truth is that most in the weak and sickly church nowadays will NOT submit to Christ the KING and OBEY his Word. We often don’t need to pray to hear from God on these matter because he has already told us, very clearly indeed, in his Word what His Will is.

    Keep up the good work !


    • Naomi King – So what do you think should have been done about the offending Couple?
      Do you consider Fornication (in this case, the normal act of 2 People being physical with each other) to be as “evil” as what the Nazis did to the Jews for example?

      What about married couples who are in a violent and unhappy Marriage, what should be down about them?

    Try Romans 12:9 and Psalm 97:10 for starters !

    ROM 12:9b Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

    PS 97:10a Ye that love the LORD, hate evil:
