I am saddened by the moral condition of my country. It grieves me that my precious grand children are going to inherit this moral cesspool. The death of America has not happened overnight but the corpse of this once great nation can no longer hide the stench of the rot.
America is a moral wasteland. This is what happens when right and wrong are left to the opinion of men. The rejection of Christ and the elevation of the wisdom of man has our nation gasping for breath. The public crucifixion of Brett Kavanaugh is the death rattle of a nation hell-bent on the rejection of all things Godly. “Innocent until proven guilty” has followed the path of public school prayer.
American Christianity has died, not with a bang, but with a massive explosion of silence. Those who should have known better didn’t. Those who could have made a difference chose not to. Those who were charged with the task of “teaching all that I have commanded you,” were absent without leave.
We laughed at the Devil. We allowed Hellywood and the media to paint a red tail and horns on him and include him in the cartoons along side of Donald Duck. We laughed at the idea of sin and even welcomed it into our church under the guise of love. Instead of raising the standard for our posterity we lowered it. The more knowledge we gained the more foolish we became. In the Church’s desire to be everything to everybody we sacrificed Truth. In our attempt to show the love of Christ we compromised His righteous standard. By trading Truth and Justice for tolerance and diversity we poisoned the immune system of this once seemingly invincible nation.
Can America ever be America again?
Despite what the revisionist historians may say this nation was built with Christianity as the foundation. The Gospel of the Kingdom of God was the Chief Cornerstone and the Rock upon which the entire moral foundation stood. With the assassination of God in 1947 by the Supreme Court decision Everson v Board of Education, the bloodline of America began to bleed out all across the fruited plain.
The Devil lied to us. He told us that we could maintain a nation without a moral code. He told us that love was the center of all of society and it was. But it was the love of CHRIST and HIS precepts that this nation was built upon. When we substituted the love of man over the love of God the cancer began to slowly metastasize throughout the body politic until Jesus stood side by side with Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius, and self as one of many Gods who shared Lordship over America.
But Jehovah was a jealous God. He never agreed with His demotion and the equal standing he was forced to share with “other Gods.” The warnings of the Bible and of our Fathers were ignored in a desire to build a multi-cultural utopia built on a foundation of sand. Mohammed is not God. Neither were any of the other carpetbaggers who flooded in under the protection of the 1st Amendment. There was room for freedom of other denominations but only under ONE GOD. The freedom to PERSONAL religious practices was guaranteed by The Constitution but only because America was a Christian Nation founded on Christian principles. You could come to America and not be a Christian but you had no right to change America to suit your religion.
That’s why we were free. Christ…Christianity…guaranteed that freedom. It can be found nowhere else in the world. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.” Christianity is what guaranteed our freedoms and once Christ was removed as that foundation tyranny began its slow march across all of our institutions. Sadly, today most Americans share very little of importance in common.
Love is an empty word without the embodiment of He that IS love at the foundation of our moral law. “If it feels good do it” is a shaky foundation upon which a nation can be built. Foundations are the pillars upon which a society stands and America’s are crumbling. The right of a mother to murder her own unborn child was a lightning bolt that cracked those pillars…a crack from which the pillars have never recovered.
You need to look no further than this for evidence of our Devil-loving citizenry. What kind of people kills their unborn children? What kind of government permits it? What kind of church sits helplessly and watches it? And what kind of people fight to destroy a man simply because he opposes it?
I don’t even know if what I have written makes sense. It is a rant more than anything else. An expression of the frustration I deeply feel for the rejection of Truth that our nation has endured. How could Christians have so willing yielded the authority to the Dark side? If America was a Professional football team I would find another team to root for.
But we are not a football team. We are a nation and we have no Truth upon which we stand.
There is nothing in the world as dark as a human heart unrestrained by a moral code. Trust me…I used to have one. I know, even today, what I am capable of doing without the restraining power of the Holy Spirit.
Teddy Roosevelt once opined “To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.”
Look around the town in which you live at the many Christian churches that dot the landscape. They are full of people enslaved to the Devil and his minions. America is no longer free because the Church refused to fight. The god of government seized control of America as Christians sold their birthright for a pot of warm stew.
The heart of man is dark. Only Christ can restrain it. Today, does America look more like Billy Graham or Hugh Heffner? Who was the greater evangelist?
Founding Father Charles Winthrop said, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”
We are in the last quarter and the church remains silent as the god-haters pour out into the streets. Hmm…menace to society, eh?
Which will it be church…the Bible or the bayonet? The foundations have crumbled.
If the foundations be destroyed what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3.
It looks like the ball is in the church’s court.
