The United States Congress in the very near future will make one of the most significant decisions of our lifetime. In fact, there may be nothing more significant for the future of the United States, the world, and our children than this historic vote.
I am firmly convinced that Americans – – and particularly American Christians – – should oppose the Iran Nuclear Deal in every way possible.
Why is this the case?
First, we should oppose the Iran nuclear deal because of the nature of evil. Evil – – in all of its manifestations – – must be opposed. Evil cannot be appeased; it can only be confronted.
Many people are calling this 1938 all over again.
What happened in 1938? Britain and France met with Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime in Germany and, in effect, gave Hitler permission to expand his evil regime. Prior to 1938 Hitler had not committed his greatest atrocities. After the meeting with Britain and France, Hitler proceeded to kill 6 million Jews.
Every Christian should know the name Neville Chamberlain. Chamberlain was the Prime Minister of Great Britain. After meeting with Hitler, Chamberlain showed his misunderstanding of evil with one of the most wrong – headed statements of all time. After meeting with Hitler he happily said that they had brought about “peace in our time.” World War II took the lives of 55 million people worldwide.
Evil cannot be appeased it must be confronted.
Second, Christians should oppose the Iran Nuclear deal because of the nature of Iran. Iran has called for death to the United States and the annihilation of Israel. No country on earth has called for the annihilation of any other country except for Iran.
Iran has executed more of its own people than any nation except China.
How ironic is this? Iran has recently executed 6000 people because they are homosexual. Liberals in America, who support and encourage homosexuality, also generally support the Iran nuclear deal.
Third, Christians should oppose the Iran Nuclear deal because of what it will do to the nation of Israel. Iran has actively called for the annihilation of Israel. With the $150 billion this deal will give Iran, they will add to the instability of the Middle East and will threaten Israel like no other time since 1948.
What else should we do?
We should pray for the peace of Israel and for the peace of the world. We should pray for our leaders as they make this historic decision. Both of these suggestions are the commands of Holy Scripture. We should give our best to make for real peace for all time.
