NEWBURY PARK—“The cornerstone in our culture is Christ.  Remove Christ from the culture and it implodes,” said Pastor Rob McCoy on Sunday at Godspeak Calvary Chapel (2697 Lavery Ct.).

“We are watching as celebrities check out as we see the opiod problem in our community; as we see the Thousand Oaks City Council go five hours discussing SB 54—the sanctuary bill with nearly 100 speakers.

“I am not anti-immigration, I am anti criminal activity—but our community is divided—almost perfectly divided at the council meeting.  Of all immigrants who have committed felonies in federal prison, 97% are illegal immigrants. Only 3% are legal immigrants…. If they can break one law, they can break other laws.” 

(Editor’s Note:  Councilman McCoy was the only Thousand Oaks Councilman to oppose SB 54—the sanctuary city bill—at the June 5th City Council meeting and vote for joining other California cities in opposition to the bill which limits the ability of state and local law enforcement agencies to help federal immigration agents.  His opposition was based on the Constitution giving the federal government powers over immigration issues and California law usurping that power. Councilman McCoy said:  “I believe we need to make a statement that, in accordance with the oath of office that we took, we take SB 54 to be unconstitutional…I take that oath pretty seriously.  SB 54 is a violation of Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution.  The California Constitution has to submit to the federal constitution.”)

In Pastor McCoy’s Sunday sermon:  The prophet Isaiah speaking for the Lord God said:  “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.” (Isaiah 28:16) Jewish King David wrote:  If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?”  (Psalm 11:3).

McCoy said the answer to King David’s question is:  “rebuild the foundations” and “to put our trust in God” so that we can “live to fight another day.  At times, it seems like the opposition is winning. 

“What can the righteous do?   Political action.  Take your convictions to the voting booth.  Voting is always the lesser of two evils unless Jesus is running.   I say to a group of pastors who don’t want to engage, this house is on fire and let’s get the kids out.   These pastors use (end-times) eschatology as an excuse.  God told us:  ‘Occupy until I come.’”

Pastor McCoy said,  “Our President frustrates me and gets me irritated but I do like what he contends for:  religious liberty and for the unborn.   I like the low levels of unemployment especially for Blacks and Hispanics.   He is a disrupter but there might be peace in North Korea.  The jury is still out.  Pastors still struggle with him; but they struggled with Abraham Lincoln.

“But what did President Trump recently say:  “Prayer changes hearts, transforms lives, uplifts souls, inspires action and unites us as: One Nation Under God. 

“How can we realign our foundations?” 

 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

“Jesus has laid the foundation both vertically and horizontally.  What can the righteous do?   We can engage the culture.  We can quit whining and get busy.

“Yes, we can Make America Great Again.  Our President has been making more cornerstones than most pulpits in America.  Regardless of how you feel about this president, a huge door has opened up and you have the privilege of laying that foundation—that cornerstone.

“This is not about being a Republican or a Democrat, it is about being a Christocrat.  Everything is about Jesus.  If the foundation is destroyed, we are in trouble.   We are the ones to do the rebuilding.  We do not do the whining.  We do the building.”
