Will You Join Ben Carson’s Viral #IAmAChristian Movement?

Ben Carson has started the #IAmAChristian movement with a simple photo. Others are following his muted example.

Ben Carson's #IamAChristian Movement has become viral

WASHINGTON, October 8, 2015 – There is a growing movement moving across the nation, and even the Rev. Franklin Graham and Sarah Palin are joining it. It is Ben Carson’s #IAmAChristian Movement, which has now gone viral, according to CNS.

GOP presidential candidate Carson shared a photo of himself on Facebook and Twitter that shows him holding a sign reading “I Am A Christian.” One can also see a fish symbol, which was used by early Christians.

The photo of Carson was a direct result of the candidate’s apparent strong demonstration of his Christian faith a day after the tragic execution of nine innocent people at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. The gunman seemingly targeted his victims based upon their Christian faith.

Ben Carson: Wisdom, humility and common sense

In fact, according to the New York Post, the killer asked each victim one by one, “Are you a Christian?” A parent of one of the victims reported that the gunman then said, “if you’re a Christian, stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them.”

The senseless and emotionless execution style displayed by the 26-year-old killer was a clear display of his anti-Christian deep-seated hatred. What is heartrending is how each person that professed his or her faith as a Christian when asked, had to know that death was imminent.

Yet they still reportedly said, “I am a Christian.”

It is that one timeless statement, “I am a Christian,” that spans over 2,000 years, since the beginning of Christianity, that is so remarkable in its power. It is the power of that simple phrase which gives strength and spiritual energy to Dr. Carson’s #IAmAChristian Movement.

The American Christian Civil Rights Movement believes that the origination of the Biblical rationale that embodies the statement and unifies the whole Body of Christ itself are these teachings, and that silence is betrayal:

Luke 12: 8-98 And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God; 9 but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.”

Now take a breath and let the words of those remarkable Christian heroes, “I am a Christian,” form in your mouth and simply utter them to yourself, to your loved ones and to all who you hold dear or even to those who you wish to share with.

Now just imagine how those last seconds of life had to have felt for each one of the victims who admitted their Christian faith. Their words were more powerful than the killer’s bullets.

The words of conviction they gave as their last testimony of faith still reverberate now, and not even the dismissive and politicized pronouncements of President Obama, who did not even mention or recognize the heroism of these brave Christian faithful, will diminish them.

Graham and Palin have joined  Carson’s #IAmAChristian Movement, and the American Christian Civil Rights Movement embraces this signature moment of Christian faith as well. There is a war being declared on Christian faith around the world and even in classrooms in America.

#IAmAChristian is a movement of Christian faith whose time is now and do not deny yourself the opportunity to openly declare “I am a Christian!”
