With Barack Obama becoming President of the United States, true Christians will be facing very difficult times in such an evil world. In these tough times, we cannot make it alone, and must lean on our brothers and sisters in the local church. In the book of Daniel we see Daniel and his three friends relying on each other to make it through evil and difficult times. Without each other, they would not have been able to stand, and neither can we in this increasingly evil world.
Unashamed Truth! In a world where truth is considered relative and Biblical Christians are considered bigots, it is easy for Christians to silence themselves from speaking the Truth to avoid persecution. This sermon details, from the Bible, how we as Christians should live in a time where evil is allowed to rule.
As Jesus said,
"I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!" Luke 12:4-5

Great Sermon! This is the first sermon I've heard by Pastor Doner, and I really have to say amen and amen. I teach at a high school in New York City, an ocean of liberalism and atheism. The faculty honored me by electing me to a school policy committee consisting of parents, students, teachers, and the principal and one other administrator.
This body in turn elected me as their Chairman last year. As a born again Christian (Reformed Baptist)I had to make some tough decisions. I composed the agendas for our meetings, and put on as one item cross-dressing day in our school. Imagine we actually had a senior day dedicated to cross-dressing by senior males! I argued before this committee that the school should never sponsor such a day. Finally, the matter was dropped as a "non-issue" and the principal said the school neither endorsed the day nor could stop it, but it was wholly a student choice. I also put on the agenda various lascivious statements that had appeared in the student newspaper as "Valentine's messages." Even the president of the PTA said he thought the messages I considered offensive were "cute." So, I found it very encouraging to hear Pastor Doner's comments about standing up against politically correct wickedness. As a follow-up, I will tell you that I was not re-elected.
