1.  What is the dividing line between personal faith and civic duty?

2.  What action, if any, can an individual take against immoral regimes?

    Read the Beatitudes in Mathew 5:

    If Christians could stop confessing only and start practicing, there would be no injustice, the poor will have food and shelter (as Jesus cautioned they will always be there) our righteous actions to the poort Glorifies God who saves us.

    If Christians stopped confessing only and started practicing as in James 2: then there will be no evil Kings, cause God will annoint amongst us Righteous Kings.

    If Chritians stopped confessing only and started practicing, they will be no glorifying of tribes except one Tribe, the tribe of Judah! where only Jesus is the King and all others are family members!

    I have a Vision, that this picture of a Christian will be revealed in the coming end time revival, and every body will see the difference before Christ comes for His Church, then nobody will complain that Practicing Chrisitans were favoured, for their merit will be evident for all to see.

    The Christian Family in Germany, Stuttgart are a Testimony of This, many Nations joined hands to repent for themselves and for the sins of Kenya, Germany and the world, the move goes on in the Name of Jesus! just keep your Faith on the Crown!

    Very few Kings in this world are righteous, very few are even concerned about the King of Kings, they are so busy protecting their Kingdoms from others are trying to steal it from them, not knowing that in truth these Kingdoms belong to the one who Created them, meanwhile the wars go on, how I wish that some Kings will start preparing their people for the coming King of Kings, He is coming people, Kenya is just an example of an end time Prophecy by Jesus in Matt 24: look at Pakistan, look at Chad! I can go on…and on… the Love of many has grown cold, and many servants have grwon weary of waiting for the Master so they are drinking with drankards who they should be preaching to for Salvation!

    i close with Matt 24: 45 – 51
    “45”Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    It’s a sad day when we have to ask Christians if Christ is relevant.

    Intersting questions . I will attempt to answer what i think about them

    1. What is the dividing line between personal faith and civic duty? PERSONAL FAITH INFILTRATES EVERY PART OF THE CHRISTIANS LIFE (SHOULD), INCLUDING CIVIC DUTY THE DIVIDING LINE COMES WHEN CIVIC DUTY GOES AGAINST GODS LAW

    2. What action, if any, can an individual take against immoral regimes?
    A BELIEVER SHOULD ALWAYS HATE SIN (LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES AND HATE WHAT HE HATES) ANYTHING THAT FALLS UNDER THIS THE BELIEVER SHOULD DIS-ASSOCIATE THEMSELVES FORM SUCH AND EVEN GO FURHTER IN ADVOCATING FOR WHAT IS RIGHT ( I REALIZE THE DANGER IN THE ASSUMED RELATIVITY OF THE TERM IMMORAL REGIMES BUT I BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE IS CLEAR ON WHAT IS MORAL/IMMORAL). AS LONG AS THEIR ADVOCACY DOES NOT GO AGAINST GODS PURPOSE FOR US IN THIS LIFE (MATTHEW 22:37-40)

    3. Is Christ relevant to our world, and to our lives?
    CHRIST SHOULD AND ALWAYS WILL BE RELEVANT TO OUR LIVES. THAT IS WHY HE CAME DOWN TO LIVE AS WE LIVE AND EXPERIENCE ALL THAT WE DO. I CANNOT SPEAK FOR THE WORLD BUT FOR EVERYONE WHO IS A BELIEVER OF CHRIST, HE SHOULD BE RELEVANT IN EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE (2 CORINTHIANS 5:6-10 SPEC VS.9)

    4. Do we believe in anything so much that we would be willing to die for it?

    YES AS A CHRISTIAN I BELIEVE THAT MY LIFE AND EVERYTHING IN IT SHOULD REEFLECT CHRIST AND EVEN IF IT MEANS DEATH (AND DEATH DOES COME IN MANY WAYS AND FORM I DON’T NECESSARILY MEAN PHYSICAL DEATH) SO BE IT….I SUFFER MANY FORMS OF DEATH EVERYDAY AS I TRY TO CONFORM TO THE IMAGE OF MY SAVIOR WHO IS “…BEFORE ALL THINGS AND IN HIM ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER” ( COLOSSIANS 1:17)

    BEFORE YOU PANIC THAT YOU HAVE COME ACROSS A RADICAL CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN ….I REALIZE THAT IM NOT PERFECT AND ACTUALLY FAR FROM IT BUT I “PRESS ON TOWARDS THE GOAL FOR THE PRIZE OF THE UPWARD CALL OF GOD” ( PHILIPPIANS 3:14) I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY AS BELIEVERS WILL ACTUALLY RECEIVE THE PRIZE OF PERFECTION IN GLORY WITH CHRIST

    1 personal faith is greater than civil duty .civil duty submits to personal faith
    answer to number two : pray for justice and peace God will do the rest
    3answer to number three : christ is perhaps morerelevant now han he has been .we need to talk to him so that his will can be done whether its kibaki ,raila or none of the above 4
    we believ in christ that we are willing to die for him others might be willing to die for democracy or any otherthing but for us believrs it should be christ first
