Something has happened. An invisible line has been crossed. A very tired and obsolete excuse has expired. What excuse, you ask? The one that goes like this: “As a Christian, I don’t believe that we should be involved in politics.”
As incredible as it may seem, people are still saying things like that.
There is a special punishment mentioned in Scripture about remaining silent when a generation is headed for disaster. And that Scripture mentions nothing about a ‘political’ exemption. Proverbs 24:11-12, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those who stumble to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He Who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?”
The Satanic agenda being pushed by the Left is killing people. It is drawing them toward death. But you can’t speak up because that would be ‘politics.’

There is a special punishment mentioned in Scripture about remaining silent when a generation is headed for disaster.

Look deeply into the eyes of a champion swimmer. She trained all of her life to be in this final event. She even broke a record, but she came in second. The medal she won has been stolen by a male swimmer. Can you feel the devastation? The unfairness? How can you still call this ‘just politics?’
Maybe you didn’t know that kindergarteners are stumbling toward the slaughter, led there by activist teachers who are confusing them about their gender, and pushing them to get hormones and surgery without any permission from their parents. And still, you don’t want to say anything, because that would be political. Wait. What? A teacher taking a child in kindergarten aside and grooming them for the LGBTQ agenda. How is this debatable? How can you insist on being silent?

Walt Disney Corporation is using their considerable power to fight a war against parents. Disney is fighting against a law signed by Gov. DeSantis, that would not have been necessary in a decent society. The law states that you must have my parental consent before talking to my child about gender. You can’t hide it from me anymore. And, oh yes, you can’t teach my child LGBTQ doctrine until the third grade.
You still think that parents who are fighting for their children are just ‘getting into politics?’ You still believe we should stay quiet?
How insane are the Leftists? They have gone from chanting “believe every woman,” to asking “what is a woman?”
Ketanji Brown Jackson, nominee for the Supreme Court, says she cannot define what a woman is, because, as she made the lame excuse, “I am not a biologist.” Yet, she seems to know a lot about biology when she declares that a fetus at full term is still not human—and can be legally killed, even after surviving an abortion.

You still think that parents who are fighting for their children are just ‘getting into politics?’ You still believe we should stay quiet?

Ketanji Brown Jackson’s devaluation of human life explains why she has given less than the minimum sentence recommended by the law for men who have not only sexually assaulted babies, but also tortured them.  But you still believe that speaking out against her is just being political?

Proverbs 24:12 is clearly asking some burning questions: What do you mean by saying you did not know they were headed for the slaughter? You say you did not know evil when you saw it? Don’t you realize that God knows you are lying? How can you believe that God will not hold you accountable for your silence?

More to the point, is this a sign of things to come for every Christian leader—no matter how big their empire—to either take a stand or be removed?

The punishment for silence in the face of evil—the reckoning for not helping to save people and push back the disaster—is plainly stated in Esther 4:14, “For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
You did not help when you had the chance. Is Hillsong collapsing right before our eyes? Is it just Brian Houston, or is it an entire value system? In case you didn’t know, Hillsong is the biggest church in Australia. They had the power to speak up against the tyranny and immorality that is now flooding their nation. But they chose to remain silent. Has their scandal come because they passed their time-limit to take a stand?

More to the point, is this a sign of things to come for every Christian leader—no matter how big their empire—to either take a stand or be removed?
It is no longer about you and me. It is about the children. It is no longer about politics. It is about evil.
But there is a promise in that very same chapter of Proverbs for those who choose to stand against the flood of evil.
Proverbs 24:25, “But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.”
The time is running out. How much time does the Church in America have left to stand against evil?

    I am so proud of Mario Murillo. He is God’s man for such a time as this! Keep preaching the truth.

    • dsc59811sweger

      Not political issues, but moral ones…thank you! Excellent message.

      • Lynette Marion

        Hearing many of my “Christian brethren” say things like “God’s got this” and refusing to talk about the old standard “religion and politics” makes me angry and frustrated… I was shushed by another “sister” in the Lord at a women’s prayer group when I spoke out against the fraudulent election and what the leftists were doing to our country, she wagged a finger at me saying with a smile…”now now, we don’t talk politics here” …. Well if I can’t talk about the state of our country there, WHERE can I talk about it???? No wonder we’re in the state we’re in, if we can’t or won’t talk about politics and how it will impact our churches and families. Even our pastor whom I dearly love, refuses to bring up anything about politics or the current state of affairs. The general consensus must be that God allowed the fraud in the WH so we must accept and pray for him and his horrendous administration that is responsible for the demonic policies foisted on our nation. I pray for him to be saved, because if he was saved, he would admit the election was rigged and step down and ask that our rightful president be reinstated.

            I too went too a Bible study through our church and I was shushed when I tried to talk about what is going in the world. It was not important to talk about it it most certainly is important so then I knew that wasn’t the Bible Study for me I left and didn’t go back. I felt that people need to know and we need to pray for our Country and around the World.

        • michael isham

          Where are the Wesley’s?, Jonathan Edwards?, Finney’s, Moody’s? Fortunately there is Mario Marillo. I am very sure that God has His men and women standing up for a “time such as this.” I am standing against the flood of evil, I am praying, I am proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I am willing to lose EVERYTHING for the sake of the Gospel. Hell is not full yet for the lukewarm. What a terrible day that will be. No repentance will help in that place. “They have made their choice for all time.”

        • Agnes

          I found your post to be honest and frank. So, let me be honest. Find another church.

          There have been many Christians slaughtered over centuries who said “God’s got this”. He doesn’t want us to sit on our hands. He wants us to stand up for injustice. Doing nothing makes us sheep. Sheep follow to the slaughter. Me and mine will not follow to the slaughter, or cave to pressure.

          When I get to Heaven, and stand to be judged, I don’t want to be asked by God “Why didn’t you fight the demonic forces”? None of us should allow our children to be abused, nor our Christian brothers and sisters to close their eyes to evil. That is not what God asks of us.

      • Rhoni Stevenson

        Thank you Mario for standing up and speaking truth, THE TRUTH.

    • Ginny Crawford

      James 4:17 says, “Therefore. to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is a sin.

    • gege4god

      YES! Amen !!!!!

    • Linda

      Thank you Mario for speaking the truth. I love watching your You Tube videos.
      I am trying to get someone to take me to your tent revival in Batavia. I only live 40 mins away but cant drive right now cause of my severe neoropathy. Linda

  2. Joe Vargas

    Love It! We will stand and hold the mighty name of Jesus high🙏🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

  3. Tim Gonnella

    The silence of the church is deafening. The world has convinced her to stay out of politics, but to allow evil to flourish without SPEAKING UP, is to condone it. Thank you Mario for speaking the truth.

  4. Collin R Williams

    This was an outstanding blog. You tell it like it is, as every born again Christian should.

  5. samuellhwarren

    Mario, as a fellow West-coaster, we are here fighting with you. There’s a church in Puyallup, WA that we go to that was featured on Flashpoint in the Fall. Every member to a man and woman in that church are in this fight with you! Thank you for being a voice in this sweeping movement of God!

    • Patricia D. Carlson

      I’m in Enumclaw. I would love to find a church like this. Can you give the name?

  6. George Scott Crawford

    On the front lines of Street Ministry, many lewd acts are being performed in front of us and to distract from the preaching of the Gospel. This is happening mainly through Young women. Sometimes the crowds even cheering these actions. After preaching some 52 years on the streets things are deteriorating due to the present political climate.

  7. Candy Garcia

    I am happy that Mario Murillo is Not afraid to speak up and make a stand

  8. Clair Davis

    Thank you, Mario as you are right on target again. God bless you

  9. kingskid48

    Excellent blog, Pastor Mario. Your wisdom is so needed at this time when there are so many weak Christian speakers out there who criticize pastors and evangelists who tell us how important it is to vote right (as in according to God’s Laws and His Will for this nation). I just heard another one on Sunday on tv, and it was someone I had respected.

    I left what used to be a good church after the pastor said it doesn’t matter whether we vote democrat or Republican. “Who cares?”” he said. He was also weakening on his stance on homosexuality.

    I know some ministers criticize people who leave churches. I don’t understand that. Sometimes the church leaves us.

    Thank you for your consistent strong stand, Pastor Mario.

    • John Rackliffe

      Sometime the church leaves us. Amen! God’s people are the Ecclesia, “the called out ones.” We are called to live apart from worldliness not to embrace it. If a pastor cannot lead rebuke him and move on. Would rather see a home church in every house that is on fire for God than a million lukewarm mega churches. Blessings!

  10. Linda Drew

    Thank you Mario for standing up for the truth & exposing these people.

  11. Gisele Cox

    Thank you for speaking the truth. We need to wake up. The bill to kill a baby after it’s born is pure evil. I live in California & praying that God would deliver us from this wicked wicked government.

  12. Debi Gamache

    Thank-you Mario. I know a lot of people that would be absolutely horrified if you…killed a litter of newborn puppies, or kitten’s one week after they were born, yet look the other way regarding our precious babies. God help them!

  13. Michelle

    Thank you Mario for speaking the truth. I pray that more pastor’s would stand up for what’s right and stand against the the leftist agenda. God is tired of these lukewarm churches who are afraid to tell the truth because their afraid of hurting people’s feelings.

  14. Beverly Campbell

    Revelation 22:20..He who testifies to these things says “Surely I Am coming quickly” Amen.. Even so , come Lord Jesus!

  15. S.Turner

    I wish they would change the font to something more ordinary and less intrusive. This font detracts from the message. I dread to start reading.

  16. Joyce Bidwell

    It is not enough to say “I take a stand.” We have to shout it out loud as well as shuffle our feet. Join in the Crusade to take that stand to take our country back.

    • Marcus Maddox

      This is nothing except the Cannanite religion resurrected today.
      Jesus spoke of the punishment for those who worship at the Tophet in places like Carthage, Sidon and Tyre, all descendants of the Cannanites who are cursed by their actions
      The valley of Bin Hinnon where the Tophet was, which Isaiah warned of , which Jeremiah saw the potter reshaping a marred vessel, which the money from Jesus’ betrayal was used to buy the Potter’s Field for a cematary and where the Lake of Fire WILL BE because this is the spot where they burned their children as worship to gods of cruelty.
      I’m not lying . This is ALL TRUE

  17. Mary Simuli Mokaya

    We will raise the banner high wherever we are. Indeed we cant keep silent anymore

  18. Beth Bain

    I thank God every day for men like Mario Murillo. He is not afraid to stand up for what is RIGHT! It will be interesting to see how many more “Hillsongs” collapse due to staying silent and letting evil take over this Country. Thank you Mario for ALL you do!

  19. Dena

    The level of compromise continues to accelerate. At first I’ve noticed people who call themselves Christians excusing cohabitation. Then abortion. Then homosexuality. Obviously they’re ok with sin in their lives and think they’re in no danger. Once saved always saved they say. It’s grace. If you question their lives they’ll quote don’t judge.

    On the day of judgement they’re in for a big surprise. They never made Jesus the Lord of their lives. They misunderstood salvation. They’re Christian in name only. How many people who call themselves Christians are truely saved?

  20. Tom Currie

    God bless you mightily, Mario, for plainly and boldly telling the truth.

  21. Viviane Smith

    Thank you Mario Murillo for speaking the truth. I am a Canadian 🇨🇦And began praying for you and the revival when you first spoke about it,I believe it was on FlashPoint. We in Canada 🇨🇦 are seeing the persecution of pastors being jailed for preaching the gospel and feeding the poor. I prayed that your revival in the USA would be so huge it would flow over to our Canadian borders. We stand united in Christ 🙏🇨🇦❤️

  22. Caroline Hanstad

    We stand behind (or hide behind) the term Politically Correct. That is an oxymoron, There is very little left of what our forefathers brought here, fought for here, and wrote into law. Freedom has taken on a whole new meaning. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  23. Judith weir

    I totally agree that we Christian’s who surrender to Gods Spirit and His word have to repent for being Luke warm, compromising, and too busy! Standing for the truth challenges me because I constantly have to remind myself that I’m not fighting “” flesh and blood” but those principalities of the enemy. Greater in us is Jesus! I’m in a battle right now for confronting a Believer who has secret sun that I discovered by “ chance” ….more than ever we step into being light and love , asking fir courage and direction! We worship and delight more in Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit and He will give us the desires if our hearts…for our land to be delivered out of all the enemy’s agendas!

  24. Sharon Yago

    What a great article. I have called my senators about the supreme court voting (even though both are democratic), I am standing for individuals running such as,Kristina Karamo who is running for Secretary of State in Michigan…..she knows this is a spiritual war. Seek these people out and support them. Thank God for Mario, Steve Bannon and all believers who are fighting for goodness.

  25. Tony Campo

    The “Silence of the Lambs” has got to come to an end. Thank you Mario, for your voice and your bold stance against everything that is against Gods Kingdom. The Kingdom of God suffers violence but the violet take it by force.

  26. RL Perrin

    Thank you again and again for not being ashamed of the truth. The truth is deafening but few choose to hear much less listen. My concern is where does God start giving those a reprobate mind who determine not to hear.

  27. Mary

    I agree with everything you said. Thank you for being a leader we can trust and follow!

  28. Maria Esther Reyna

    I thank The Lord for bringing me to Mario Murillo blog. My Jewish name is Esther and I think The Lord want to use me in times like this. Millions of unborn babies sacrificed every day. Pastors are not rebuking this sinful nation. Pray for California soon to be headqurters for USA abotion. God bless you Mario Murillo for bringing revival to our country.

  29. RAFO

    Years ago Christians we’re told to stay out of politics, lest the 503(c) tax exempt status be taken away. TAKE IT AWAY!!! PLEASE!!! We don’t need or want it as its given the government control over what is said from the pulpit! Yes, we’ll pay higher taxes to speak out… SO WHAT??? Is our bank accounts more important than people’s eternal destiny?? God help us, and forgive us of our shortsightedness and our hypocrisy!

  30. FrancesEve

    God bless you for your rallying cry. I too am from Canada where we are under terrible persecution and pastors are being incarcerated under the most cruel conditions for preaching the gospel on the streets and feeding the poor. We are in desperate need of prayer here in Canada. We are under terrible oppression and unlike China and North Korea, the leader here has done an exceptional job in paying out all the mass media so that people as near as the USA have NO IDEA what we your neighbours are going through here. We the people that refuse to take the poison injection cannot step on a plane, a train or a bus and the distances in this country are so great that to drive them with the gas prices where they are is prohibitive so we are prisoners in our own country. We dare not say anything negative about our leaders as we will be thrown into jail. You are yet blessed in the USA because you still have Red States and conservatives who stick up for the rights of religious freedome. We do not. Please pray that Canada will be delivered from this terrible oppression in JESUS NAME.

    • Wanda

      I will pray for Canada.

  31. Sandra

    So true! But these so called christians even Hillsong must not read the BIBLE ( The Word Of GOD) because it keeps referring to His Count and the government of Nations! Yes we all will be judged for our beliefs and our stand or not standing for life and truth! So sad to see our politicians driving people so easily straight toward hell! Why do people not read the word yet believe evil men! And our government has been evil all my lifetime, so sad to see some of them at memorials that they had a hand in causing! So so sad the church has felled GOD’s people and so thankful Holy Spirit (my best friend) has been my guide and wants me to only vote for christians in every office from City to White House! Lets be all we can for our Lord and Savior! Stand strong for our Father brother!

  32. Loraine Green

    Thank you, Mario. The church has to make our voices heard. We will stand up for life. We will stand up for our children and grandchildren. Jesus gave His life for us. We must give our lives for the world and stand up for righteousness.

  33. Georgia

    Praise God for Mario Murillo! We all must speak up now!

  34. Richard Young

    Thank You Mario………for standing up and speaking the TRUTH……….So many today are afraid to stand for the truth……..

    “Nevertheless, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way: if he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life. (Ezekiel 33:9) “Reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (2 Timothy 4:2) See “Why “do not judge,” mistakenly taken out of context, has resulted in dire consequences.”

  36. Leslie McCowan

    I am so encouraged by your post Mario. Sometimes I feel like the only one who believes the same way as you. I need to hear it. I attended my home church after being absent for quite a while. I heard the head pastor say in his sermon “I believe in the separation of church and state and I don’t believe the church should be involved in politics”. Hearing that statement from him given in his sermon solidified for me why I can no longer attend. I left the service feeling dismayed and disheartened. If we Christians don’t take a stand now, our country is totally lost!

  37. wms2

    Take a stand or be removed.Churches that are not speaking up against this evil because “we shouldn’t offend anyone” are doing much more harm than good.Meanwhile they have people in their midst that are questioning their sexuality,,gender,looking at porn and being over run by the devil. The anointing would destroy these yokes.How far we have fallen.

  38. Ross Hanby

    Thank Mario, well said. There is such a veil of darkness over the nation. Its like a numb skull that cant see the damage and danger that will cause the children and families in the future. Lord Jesus save our nation from the lies of the devil!

  39. Stephen

    Imagine if I said as a ‘human being’ I don’t get involved in politics, when that is about governance, laws being passed, the very things that define & determine our culture & behaviour as a people, which therefore impact me!

    Opting out, is not an option.

    Ultimately it was about the ‘behaviour’ of the Northern Tribes of Israel that got them exterminated by the Assyrians, and the Southern Tribes taken into Babylonian Captivity.

    If we don’t seek first God’s Kingdom & His RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is about governance & politics, the administration of God’s Kingdom, then we will be judged, just as Sodom & Gomorrah were judged, Christian & atheist alike.

    What is the difference between America and S & G? America is worse!

    When you arrive in the Spirit World Jesus may ask you, “Did you seek first my Kingdom (governance), or were you doing something else”? “Depart from me you evildoer, I never knew you”. Mt 7:21-23.

    God & Jesus want a nation. Why? To protect & safeguard their people, to provide a safe & stable environment to raise families, & to be able to take care of our physical needs through cultivating creation in conjunction with economic & commercial pursuits. Deut 28

    That is why we must become good stewards of God’s House/Kingdom in all ways, not be the irresponsible stewards in Lk 12:42-48.

    There is the sin of commission & also the sin of omission, not taking responsibility for what God has asked us to do:

    James 4:17 “Whoever knows what is right to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin”.

  40. Norma

    These are the very reasons that Jonathan Can is calling for NATIONAL repentance. You ALL have your special calling to promote the GOD KINGDOM May God bless all your humble endeavors.

  41. Douglas Nickelson

    Keep us focused, Mario. Like physical combat it’s easy for the troops to get disoriented-quickly-in all the exertion and cacophony which is war. We bind the noise and spirit of confusion Lord releasing wisdom and understanding to even the lowest of us in Jesus’ name amen.

  42. ali

    sent this post to a member of our church who opposes politics being taught in churches. His response “he (mario) is talking about moral issues, not politics.” I responded ” politicians are making laws that govern moral issues, the two cannot be separated.” There is none so blind as those who refuse to see. (btw we no longer attend said church. I talked to the pastor about being more bold, his response “I don’t want to offend” I told him “everywhere Jesus went He offended someone. You would be in very good company. We must keep speaking truth as long as we can.

  43. Mike DeWitt

    Amen Mario!!

    Ephesians 5:6-16

    6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

    7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

    8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

    9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

    10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

    12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

    13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

    14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

    15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

    16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

  44. Obasoro Akindele

    God bless you Sir for standing on the front lines.

  45. Bruce Van Antwerp

    When are those who recognize the sanctity of all human lives goin to stop saying inane things such as referring to fetuses who (not that) survive abortion. First, as for example, the Bible in speaking of John the Baptist, says the baby jumped in the womb. A pre-born baby, in the words of the Author of Life is a baby, not a fetus.The word Fetus is a foreign language term used overwhelmingly to depersonalize pre-born babies. And the definition of a fetus (at least-pre-Roe) was 1. a pre-born 2. mammal baby that had 3. attained its recognizable form. Once out of the womb, babies are no longer pre-born—so they are no longer a fetus and are called a fetus only by those who are ignorant or those who are trying to deceive others. Don’t perpetuate either. Just stop it.

  46. Joyce Pogacic

    Thank you Mario for opening up a loud, clear voice that needs to be heard in America today! May we all feel the heavy hand of responsibility to do the same! This is not political, but a matter of life or death by the power of the tongue, used or not used!

  47. Tony Perone

    Amen! And amen! Like God almighty said to Isaiah, Ezekiel and all the prophets, “Who will go?” “Who will stand in the gap?” We who belong to the LORD must say, “Here I am, LORD! Send me!”

  48. Roger Culwell

    its not politic’s at all, its about Godly moral standards, and the family Good created, the only way there is reproduction, they are preforming the worst kind of child abuse and destroyiing any chance of reproduction, or sexual pleasure for that child, we have kept silent and it is destroying th church and nation, we are conforming to a world system, the mark of a man is 6 man now runs the biggest part of the church today not Christ and the Holy Spirit, bs notbibical but mans opinions, they have a form of Godliness but deny the power, its amatter of do we stand for God or not, disney is even moving in the childrens hospital and setting up a room where witches and dragons pop up like haulograms, and brainwashing them in the process, its all demonic< just saw this when I was in the hospital, , C. and Disney are setting up a world where children are the prey, and the wife is not part of a family as we know it, they give hormones to women and say they are men and can have babies, and they are women who can grow a beard, but children will be there sexual plasure,, so sickening I wanted tothrow up as I saw it, how can we set silent and let this happen, Big Tech is behind it, they hit are who hit me and banned me on Twitter, hit my pc's and did other things I want say, but if not for the hand of God they would have killed, they bragged and said they id it, so how can we be silent, our childrens lives are at stake and this country and the churches power, most have sold out to the system, here silence is deadly and this is not politic's, its a war of good and evil.

  49. Ronald

    Indeed, because of the far left’s rejection of God, rejection of the founding principles of the nation, and rejection of long-standing mainstream public-policy wisdom that built and sustained the nation for over two centuries, the debate in recent years has morphed from shades of “right vs. left” into vivid “right vs. wrong.”

    Blessed is your message in this article–but it still needs a question mark at the end of your headline(!).
