From Adrian Rogers…..
Edmund Burke wrote, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” When it comes to the political scene and government, some have dropped out altogether. They have the idea that if you get involved in government, somehow that’s the “social gospel.” So they’ve just dropped out and hunkered down, trying to “hold on till Jesus gets here.” Some have been intimidated by the great debate between church and state.
We can’t drop out. It’s impossible to think that God would have ordained government and told His people to stay out. Who else does that leave to run things?
Others with misguided zeal have tried to bring in the kingdom of God by political machinations. That cannot be done either. So where do we get the answers?
- Not from the politician who may have his personal ax to grind
- Not from the ungodly and the humanists who don’t believe the Word of God
- Not from finger-bumping philosophers who don’t know the Word of God.
The only place we’re going to get the answers is from the Word of God
What must we do as the Church? We must continue to pray. Pray for our President and pray for our nation, because we are in a crisis. I am calling you to set your face in prayer. I am calling you, dear friend, to see who God is. I am calling you to pray for the glory of God.
We must prayer for Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
The Governor put the hammer down yesterday Gov: Mask mandate will be enforced
I think we are in for more of a rough, rough ride here in New Mexico from many different directions like this……..You think it’s rough now…….look at that cash grab……..
FGGAM MEDIA CENTER received this news release from the NM GOP HOUSE:
Governor’s $150 million cash grab will hurt local governments
Artesia, NM – At the start of New Mexico’s fiscal year, Governor Lujan Grisham vetoed $150 million of federal CARES Act funding for local municipalities. The veto was one of many that the executive made to House Bill 1, the legislature’s emergency solvency measure to counteract the Governor’s 20% spending increase in her first two years in office.
The CARES Act funding was intended to support local municipalities affected by Governor Lujan Grisham’s forced economic shutdown. New Mexico businesses have experienced tremendous turmoil during the forced closure, with many closing their doors permanently. Municipalities rely on New Mexico’s local business revenues to operate and provide essential services to their communities. With the daily count of shuttered businesses growing every day, local governments will be forced to find new revenue streams to provide essential services which could lead to higher taxes on struggling New Mexicans. The Governor’s veto of funds is an extraordinary usurping of legislative fiscal authority and sets the stage for the administration to continue picking winners and losers in the state’s economy.
“This is sad day for local governments across our state. Governor Lujan Grisham has attempted to usurp the legislative body over the past two years, but I never thought she would outright swipe control from our local governments,” said House Republican Leader Jim Townsend. “I certainly hope that for the sake of these struggling communities the Governor commits to ultimately providing CARES Act funds to these local governments in a fair and equitable way.”
