Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law a measure that cracks down on individuals who create a disturbance near schools in the state. The measure was proposed by Assemblyman Tony Mendoza, who penned it in response to a 2003 incident at a middle school in Rancho Palos Verdes when a car displaying images of an aborted fetus drove by the middle school.
Because of the photos, Mendoza claims some students began to cry, while others were angered or stood in the middle of the street, creating a safety hazard.
"But I think the main thing they object to is that it is Christian speech, that it's moral speech," suggests Cherill Clifford, Senate district director for the California Republican Assembly. "And I just get the feeling that across the board in education today, they don't want Christian speech. That's why the Ten Commandments [aren't] allowed there anymore [and] you're not supposed to talk...
What does any of these actions have in spreading the Gospel? These actions detract from what a Christian is to do in spreading, e.g., listen to The Roman Road. In fact are you talking to Catholics about the true Gospel of Christ, if you are part of an abortion protest? Too many people think the Kingdom is now or can brought forth by our actions, no, How the Church Relates to the Kingdom is not that way.
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The Bible does not say the Church is to build the Kingdom. The Bible does not say the Church is the Kingdom. . . . Our 'Christian society' is placing a strong, yet unbiblical, emphasis on the Church in terms of it building the Kingdom. . . . 3. The promised Davidic Kingdom has not been established. Christ is not sitting on David's throne. Spiritualizing leads to inaccuracy. 4. Ministry responsibilities differ between the Church and the individual believer.
Definitely check out the summary to the above sermon, and of course better listen to the sermon itself.
Keep your political activities separate from your spreading the Gospel.
