Local Ministries Are Joining to March against Sin and Corruption starting in Detroit August 28, 2010
(Detroit, MI) The purpose of March on Sin is to bring the body of Christ together in unity and on one accord to stand against sin. It is our duty to let the world know that we will not be silenced and allow sin to have free reign. March on Sin – Nation to Nation clarifies that this is not a stand against the person(s) committing the sin, but against the act of sin itself. The Bible declares that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
According to the 2007 U.S. Census Bureau Michigan was the only state in the nation to see any increase In It’s poverty level; 13.5% In 2006 to 14% In 2007. Forty three years ago Detroit was shaken to its core by what became known as “The Great Rebellion”. The people of Detroit are hurting; for the mother who child was killed, the young girl who is sexually molested in a vacant building, injustice for families that have lost their homes and the lack of education in our educational system. Like Dr. King said “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.
Free exercise of speech and religion is the first and most fundamental right of Americans protected In the Bill of Rights. It is the most basic and indisputable of all human rights.
It is important that the people of this city know that they are heard. Because of the crime, loss of jobs and hopelessness this endeavor will boost our communities hope In Detroit’s political system and bring a new surge of hope, harmony and assurance of the goodness of human rights.
When we march, we are not marching on one sin but all sin: the ones we see and the ones we don’t see. Mark 4:22 says, “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.” As believers in Christ Jesus it is our job to be ambassadors of the kingdom of God (2 Corinthians 5:20); a city that is set upon a hill cannot be hid (Matthew 5:14). The Church stands as an anchor in the community; our task is to strive against sin, to plunder the kingdom of darkness, and to populate the kingdom of God. So I say, the time is NOW; now is the time to stand up and speak out against sin! It’s time to march for what we believe.
